The Lean-Meater is an ultrasonic instrument designed to measure the total thickness of the skin and up to three layers of back fat.
The Lean Meater will display the number of fat layers detected and the total thickness in millimeters with a greater accuracy than ever before. New features such as the automatic detection of the number of layers present and the display of the result.
It is primarily used to measure the back fat in swine but can be used to take fat measurements in cattle, sheep and other land animals, as well as blubber measurement in aquatic animals. Measurements are non-invasiveóno piercing of the skin with the consequent danger of infection. The animals are neither hurt nor irritated.
