Three pairs of high-resolution digital cameras have been configured to capture the images of pigs, and then stereo photogrammetry has enabled us to extract the 3D-shape information of pigs. A model-based approach has been developed to allow meaningful interpretation of the data, where some useful measurements can be estimated from those 3D data. We will also access how reliable and useful these information may be in achieving good husbandry and in selecting breeding stock. </ABSTRACT><NOTES>poster</NOTES></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
