The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and sunflower oil addition to pig diet on carcass value traits and meat quality. Three feed mixtures were used in the experiment – feed mixture with 2 % of CLA (CLA), feed mixture with 2 % of sunflower oil (S) and control (C) group. The weight of carcass body, % of lean meat, pH1, pH24 and drip loss were monitored in control and experimental groups. Significant difference in carcass body weight was found between S (96.60 ± 0.98 kg) and C group (91.58 ± 1.25 kg). Lean meat percentage was not statistically different among groups. The results from meat quality analyses showed only minimal differences in pH1 value among groups. However, there was significantly lower pH24 value in S group (5.64 ± 0.01) compared to CLA (5.75 ± 0.02) and C (5.78 ± 0.03) group. The effect of gender on monitored carcass value traits and meat quality traits was significant only for lean meat percentage.
