Effect of neck cut position on time to collapse in halal slaughtered cattle without stunning (2015)
Journal Article
Gibson, T. J., Dadios, N., & Gregory, N. G. (2015). Effect of neck cut position on time to collapse in halal slaughtered cattle without stunning. Meat Science, 110, 310-4. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.meatsci.2015.03.026

This study examined the effect of neck cut position on the time to physical collapse in upright restrained halal slaughtered cattle (n = 644). Time to collapse was used as an indirect indicator of the early stages of onset of unconsciousness. Cattle...
