This study was conducted to compare fatty acid composition and content of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in different carcass parts of Akkaraman lambs finished with a concentrate diet. As a result of a 68-day intensive fattening, fatty acids in tissue samples taken from the leg, shoulder, breast, and rib parts of the lamb carcasses were examined. According to our analysis, the total saturated fatty acid (SFA) in the leg, shoulder, rib, and breast, were found to be 46.33%, 45.18%, 44.56%, and 40.93%, Monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) were 45.44%, 47.04%, 48.21%, and 52.72%, polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) were 4.74%, 4.10%, 3.79%, and 3.62%, and CLA were 0.89%, 0.84%, 0.81%, and 0.91%, respectively. The results show that the breast has the lowest value of SFA and the highest value of MUFA compared to other carcass parts.
