Prediction of fat quality in pig carcasses by near-infrared spectroscopy.
This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy (NIRS) technology for prediction of the chemical composition (moisture content and fatty acid composition) ofExpand
Genetic parameters between slaughter pig efficiency and growth rate of different body tissues estimated by computed tomography in live boars of Landrace and Duroc.
In this study, computed tomography (CT) technology was used to measure body composition on live pigs for breeding purposes. Norwegian Landrace (L; n = 3835) and Duroc (D; n = 3139) boars, selectionExpand
Genetic parameters of fat quality in pigs measured by near-infrared spectroscopy.
Subcutaneous fat from Norwegian Landrace (n=3230) and Duroc (n=1769) pigs was sampled to investigate the sources of variation and genetic parameters of various fatty acids, fat moisture percentageExpand
Genetic parameters of meat quality traits in two pig breeds measured by rapid methods.
To study genetic variation in meat quality traits measured by rapid methods, data were recorded between 2005 and 2008 on samples of M. longissimus dorsi (LD) in Landrace (n = 3838) and Duroc (n =Expand
Pig feeds rich in rapeseed products and organic selenium increased omega-3 fatty acids and selenium in pork meat and backfat
The concentration of omega-3 fatty acids and selenium (Se) is generally too low in the Western diet. But as the nutrient composition of pork meat and adipose tissue is influenced by the feed given toExpand
Predicting post-mortem meat quality in porcine longissimus lumborum using Raman, near infrared and fluorescence spectroscopy.
Spectroscopic techniques can provide valuable information about post-mortem meat quality. In the current study, Raman, NIR and fluorescence spectroscopy was used to analyze pH, drip loss andExpand
In vivo prediction of intramuscular fat in pigs using computed tomography
One hundred and four pure-bred Norwegian Duroc boars were CT (computed tomography) scanned to predict the in vivo intramuscular fat percentage in the loin. The animals were slaughtered and the loinExpand
Genetic trends of conformation traits and genetic correlations to osteochondrosis in boars.
The objective of our study was to investigate the heritabilities and genetic correlations between traits from a linear exterior assessment system and osteochondrosis (OC) measured by computedExpand
Effects of heterozygosity on performance of purebred and crossbred pigs
BackgroundIn pigs, crossbreeding aims at exploiting heterosis, but heterosis is difficult to quantify. Heterozygosity at genetic markers is easier to measure and could potentially be used as anExpand
Evaluating nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) as a robust reference method for online spectroscopic measurement of water holding capacity (WHC)
Abstract The potential of using NMR as a reference method for WHC measurement in porcine longissimus dorsi was investigated. The accuracy of NMR when measuring small water changes was assessed in aExpand
