Intramuscular fat content in the semitendinosus muscle of pigs of different genetic backgrounds

Annali della Facolta di Medicina Veterinaria, Universita di Parma 1989; 7: 117-129
Intramuscular fat content in the semitendinosus muscle of pigs of different genetic backgrounds
Data were analysed on 136 pigs of 6 breeds (Sienna Belted, Italian Landrace (IL), Belgian Landrace (BL), Large White (LW), Duroc and Pietrain) and 8 crosses among them. Among the pure breeds, fat percentage of the muscle ranged from 2.17 (Large White) to 6.89 (Duroc) and 8.14 (Sienna Belted). Among crosses, it ranged from 3.22 in BL X (IL X LW) to 8.09 in Duroc X (IL X LW).
