Genetic parameters between slaughter pig efficiency and growth rate of different body tissues estimated by computed tomography in live boars of Landrace and Duroc.
TLDR
Genetic correlations between growth of different body tissues scanned using CT, lean meat percentage calculated from CT and more traditional production traits such as the average daily gain from birth to 25 kg (ADG) and the feed conversion ratio (FCR) showed the difficulty in jointly improving LMP and ADG2.
Prediction of fat quality in pig carcasses by near-infrared spectroscopy.
TLDR
Equations based on modified PLS regression methods showed that NIRS technology could predict the fatty acid groups, the main fatty acids and the iodine value accurately with R(2)(cv), RMSECV, R( 2)(val) and RMSEP of 0.98, 0.97 and 1.22, respectively.
Genetic parameters of meat quality traits in two pig breeds measured by rapid methods.
TLDR
Interesting differences between the two breeds in numerical value of some genetic correlations were observed, probably reflecting the differences in physiology and selection history between Landrace and Duroc.
Genetic parameters of fat quality in pigs measured by near-infrared spectroscopy.
TLDR
LMP showed high positive genetic correlations to PUFA, which implies that selecting leaner pigs changes the fatty acid composition and deteriorates the quality of fat, which makes it possible to implement fat quality traits to achieve the breeding goal in the selection of a lean pig with better fat quality.
Pig feeds rich in rapeseed products and organic selenium increased omega-3 fatty acids and selenium in pork meat and backfat
TLDR
A portion of the present pig meat provided the daily recommended intake of Se for men and women and about 1/6 of proposed reference intake of omega-3 LCPUFA to reduce the risk of CVD thereby providing a meat that is somewhat healthier for the consumer.
Including crossbred pigs in the genomic relationship matrix through utilization of both linkage disequilibrium and linkage analysis.
TLDR
The main conclusion is that inclusion of CB genotypes is beneficial for both PB and CB animals.
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 loin
Effects of heterozygosity on performance of purebred and crossbred pigs
TLDR
The results show that including heterozygosity in the model is beneficial for some traits, likely due to dominant gene action.
