The morphological characteristics (length, depth, circumference, globosity) andthe weight were recorded on 593 left thighs collected from three slaughterhouses and providedby batches where the risk of veining defect was high. The incidence of the defect variedaccordingly to the slaughter plant, ranging from 31% to 59%. Irrespectively of theslaughterhouse, the raw hams showing an evident venous lattice were characterized by a highdepth which increased with the severity of the defect. Moreover, there was the tendency toobserve the defect in the more globose and in the heavier raw hams.
