A trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of modified tall oil (MTO) on growth and body composition of adult ovariectomized rats. This trial was targeted as a model for postmenopausal women; thus, only data applicable to swine production are presented herein. Feeding MTO decreased adiposity, increased concentrations of certain lipids in tissues, increased vitamin E (octocopherol) levels in the adipose, and increased actual lean content. These data lend support to the carcass leanness and meat quality improvements routinely seen in swine from feeding MTO.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 18, 1999
