Pig backfat thickness and eye muscle area are directly related to pig lean meat rate. It is highly regarded as an important index parameter in pig genetic breeding and performance identification. Its accurate determination is of great significance. Simultaneous in vivo measurement of pig's pig backfat thickness and eye muscle area using an intuitive B-ultrasound image has the advantages of simple operation, rapid and accurate measurement, and no damage to pigs.
Pigs ultrasound uses a 15 cm, 3.5 MHz probe to measure the back thickness of the pig and the area of the eye muscle. The measurement time, location, pig number, gender, etc. are marked on the screen, and the measured values are automatically displayed.
