Abstract

In this studies a prototype low cost portable handheld microwave system (MiS) designed and tested for back fat depth measurements using non-invasive techniques on lamb carcase in commercial abattoirs. For this application, two different type antennas was designed and tested. These results demonstrate the capacity of this prototype MiS system together with proposed antennas to estimate fat depth at the C site in lamb carcasses non-invasively in commercial abattoir at rate 100 carcase in 30 minutes.
