Mutton quality obtained in electrically stunned (ES) Bannur rams was compared with the conventional method (CM) of slaughter. Lactic acid level in blood was significantly higher in ES sheep; the bleed out value/kg live wt. did not differ significantly in ES and CM meat. Glycogen level and water holding capacity of leg muscle in ES sheep was significantly lower than in CM. Cooking loss did not show a significant difference. Firmness, toughness, succulence, and overall quality and Warner-Bratzler shear values did not vary significantly between ES and CM. It is concluded that apart from creating a slight stress reaction, electrical stunning did not influence mutton quality significantly.
