Abstract

A three-generation resource family was initiated from a cross of Berkshire grand sires and Yorkshire grand dams. This family has now progressed to breeding F1 animals to produce 500 F2 animals. This family will be eventually used for a genome wide scan to study meat quality traits. It is hoped that genes influencing meat and muscle quality will be identified for use in future breeding programs.
