Ultrasound measurements

Maybe it could be suprising for somebody to talk about ultrasound measurement together with Romanov sheep breed. Of course Roman sheep is breed for maternal position with strong maternal traits and fertility. Sure. Our goal is not building new breed with heavy muscularity. But we would  like to protect this eficient  breed from loosing of meat. Shorty, we want to have Romanovs with acceptable carcass quality. Not extreme, but acceptable. We think that good muscularity is advantage and we prefer this kind of animals. All of our lambs have ultrasound scaned depth of longissimuss muscle (together with depth of fat) at the age of 100 days. This depth of muscle  is measured in milimetres and labeled as S100.
