Abstract:
The research consist of the goat meat to investigate the relationship between goat meat in different age groups, group A (<7 m), group B (8-10 m) and group C (>11 m). The level of contamination of goat meat processed by butchers under local marketing conditions was investigated during 2008-9. A total of 21 goat meat samples were collected equally from three age groups each containing 7 samples Aerobic plate count, Coliform and yeasts and moulds counts enumerated from meat of group A (3.8 x 105±2.3 x 104, 1.8 x 105±1.0 x 104 and 1.5 x 103±2.2 x 102 cfug-1, respectively) were not significantly different (p>0.05) from goat meat of group B (3.3 x 105±4.1 x 104, 1.7 x 105±5.9 x 104, 1.4 x 103±2.9 x 102 cfug-1, respectively) and group C (3.6 x 105±2.4 x 104, 1.6 x 105±1.7 x 104 and 1.5 x 103±3.1 x 102 cfug-1, respectively).The results conclude the meat of goat slaughtered in advanced age may have an extensive advantage to reduce qualitative and quantitative losses of end products; the fact of unhygienic and poor sanitary condition under which the goat meat was handled sold at local meat shops/stalls.
