[en] The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of selenium (Se) enrichment of cereals on Belgian Blue bulls performance, on meat quality and chemical composition. Twenty three bulls were used in the present study. Twelve bulls were offered a control diet containing Se at a basal concentration of 58 µg kg-1 of dry matter (DM) and the other 11 bulls given a diet containing 173 µg kg-1DM of Se by means of Se enriched spelt and barley. The Se enrichment of the diet did not affect either the growth performance, the slaughter data or meat quality (p>0.05). There were no effects of Se on tenderness, oxydative rancidity and water losses. However, there were some effects of Se enrichment on the meat chemical composition. The ether extract was decreased from 2.1 to 1.7% DM (p<0.05). There were also significant Se enrichment (p < 0.001) in Longissimus thoracis muscle (177 vs 477 ng g1-DM) and organs: liver (474 vs 1126 ng g1-DM) and kidney (4956 vs 5655 ng g1-DM), Under such condition, the human consumption of a piece of such meat or liver can cover a large part of the recommended daily Se intake estimated between 30 to 57%.
