Table 2 Mean values of the Temperature (T) and the Relative Humidity (RH) determined with (WiB) or without (WoB) bath treatments immediately before leaving the farm. Birds were located in one of 6 different container compartments: superior front (SF), inferior front (IF), superior middle (SM), inferior middle (IM), superior rear (SR) and inferior rear (IR)

From: In-transit development of color abnormalities in turkey breast meat during winter season
