Abstract: Aging explained >45% of the variability in beef tend erness, whereas electrical stimulation explained >12%. The effect of electrical stimulation was significant for calf-fed steers up to 27 d of aging. However, this effect did not persist beyond 6 d of aging for yearling-fed steers. However, electrical stimulation prevents cold toughen- ing in lighter, leaner carcasses. Le vieillissement explique >45 % de la variabilité dans la tendreté du b œ uf (>45 %), tandis que la stimulation électrique explique >12 %. L ’ effet de la stimulation électrique était significatif chez les jeunes bovins jusqu ’ à27jours de vieillissement. Par contre, l ’ effet ne persistait pas au-delà de 6 jours de vieillissement dans le groupe de bovins d’ un an. La stimulation électrique prévient le durcissement à froid dans les carcasses plus légères et moins grasses.
