Abstract

Recent developments in real-time ultrasound technology offer producers an opportunity to estimate intramuscular fat in live pigs. Genetic improvement of intramuscular fat will continue as an emphasis in swine breeding programs and genetic progress in this important trait will be possible through implementation of this technology.
