Abstract

Records (n = 11,305) from the 1998 to 2003 National Swine Improvement Federation (NSIF) ultrasound certification programs were used to determine the effect of technician, machine (A-mode and B-mode: Aloka 500, Classic Scanner 200), and level of animal fat depth and loin muscle area on the accuracy of tenth rib off-midline backfat (BF10) and loin muscle area (LMA) measured on live pigs.
