Livestock producers have struggled through the years to measure the carcass merit of live animals quantitatively to select for superior genetics. Collecting loin-eye and fat-depth measurements via ultrasonic technologies is an accurate tool to predict carcass merit. However, it has not become widely accepted in the sheep industry. Consequently, not enough trained technicians are available to collect this information for seedstock producers.
North Dakota State University – through sponsorship by the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center – is hosting four sheep scanning educational and certification schools throughout the country to increase the number of trained technicians available to sheep producers.
