NUCLEUS started in 2015 to measure the intra-muscular fat content in its entire pure breed Duroc population, gilts and boars.

 

This measure is done at the same time that on farm testing, it means at five months old. Thus, in Duroc criteria measured on farm are now:

Weight

Muscle depth

Backfat thickness

Intra-muscular fat on loin

 

This measure of intra-muscular fat on live animal enables NUCLEUS to identify and to select for specific markets breeders having the highest intra-muscular fat content.
