Abstract


Romanian husbandry is better and better every year. In this context, the most representative results are in pig production, where the quality of carcasses is comparative to that of the other E.U. member states with high performances in this field. The methods of classification we have used were acknowledged by the Commission of Classification of Swine, Bovine, and Sheep Carcasses in Romania, i.e. optic probe (the apparatuses Fat-o-meat’er and OptiGrade-Pro), as well as the ZP (Zwei Punkte) method. Most Romanian pork carcasses (over 99.0%) range among E and U high-quality classes. This is more than satisfactory from the point of view of the qualitative evolution of pork in Romania. The results obtained by the Romanian pig breeders were remarkable in 2009, i.e. superior compared to those of the previous years. The implementation of the EUROP system for pork carcass classification in Romania has largely generated expected results.
