Abstract

Breeding for meat quality in pigs has been the topic of much scientific writing over the past two decades. Many authors have focused on correlated responses in meat quality as a result of selection for production traits, but in this paper we focus on direct selection for meat quality in practice. We present historical developments, summarise the current (2002) situation, and finish with thoughts on the role of DNA markers and future developments
