Eighty pigs, 40 barrows and 40 gilts, on two commercial finishing operations were used to model growth and accretion rates. Major differences were observed between the two farms. This analysis indicates that realtime ultrasound can be used to develop lean and lipid accretion curves for formulating farm-specific diets that optimize lean growth performance in commercial operations.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
