Accuracy of live ultrasound measurements to evaluate the total tissue depth (GR), as well as fat and LM depths at different scanning sites, was studied in 96 purebred Suffolk and Dorset lambs of both sexes slaughtered between 36 and 54 kg of BW. Before slaughter, 7 real-time ultrasound measurements were taken on lambs: fat and LM depths between the 12th and(More)
A total of 140 male and female Dorset and Suffolk lambs were slaughtered according to four live weight classes (36-39kg, 41-44kg, 46-49kg and 51-54kg). Total tissue, fat and lean masses, and bone mineral content measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) were used to predict dissected tissue weights. The DXA total weights accurately predict(More)
The Canadian Panel of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry has developed standards in order to establish the minimum level of acceptable performance for the practice of bone densitometry in Canada. Previously, this group addressed the performance of densitometry in postmenopausal women. This report addresses the use of densitometry in men,(More)
