Current and possible future application of in vivo assessment in sheep breeding programmes

Current and possible future application of in vivo assessment in sheep breeding programmes

Application of NMR techniques on the body composition of live animals: 149-159

Selection for increased leaness in lambs is improved by including an in vivo estimation of body composition in a selection index based on live weight. Methods for in vivo assessment of carcass composition are reviewed.
