Abstract

This study aims at identifying the effect of electrical stunning with 60 volts, at 267.9 Hz and 0.1 A on blood serum corticosterone levels as a stress indicator and on pH of meat. Cobb broiler were randomly divided into two groups, the group without stunning (P0) and the group with stunning (P1). Broiler meat pH value showed significant differences (p>0.05). The broiler meat pH declining along with the postmortem time period. Analysis of blood serum corticosterone showed no significant difference (p>0.05). Stunning before slaughter using 60 V, 267.9 Hz and 0.1 A did not trigger stress on the broiler.
