This research project evaluated a wide variety of pork quality attributes for each of 25 different muscles from 64 carcasses. The results identified 6 shoulder muscles and 3 ham muscles that have quality attributes that could be utilized to separately market these muscles and potentially achieve greater overall pork carcass value.
