The paper presents data on the classification of pig carcasses in slaughterhouses in Romania during the period 2009-2015. The three authorized methods of classification are: Zwei Punkte (ZP) - a manual method using the ruler used by small slaughterhouses that sacrificed less than 200 pig on the average weekly in the previous year; semiautomatic methods using the optical probe used in large slaughterhouses: Optigrade Pro (OGP) and Fat-o-Meat'er (FOM). Data were collected from the classification inspectors, which were synthesized, processed and analyzed dynamically on: the number of classified carcasses, the weight of carcasses classified by the three methods, the average carcass weight evolution, the average thickness of the fat layer, the thickness of the muscle eye and the average percentage of meat in the carcass depending on the classification method used.
