Muscles of Neck

Muscles of the Shoulder & Neck:

Acromiodeltoid: This is an elongated slender muscle extending over the anterior surface of the shoulder to the forelimb. To find this muscle you must expose the lateral surface of the upper forelimb and shoulder area by pulling back the skin first. Then toward the very top of the shoulder near the brachiocephalic, you must once again find the point of separation and break through it using the probe to separate out the muscle. Then find the other separation point about a half an inch below and break through it to isolate the muscle.

Masseter muscle: This is located on the neck of the pig slightly above the muscles of the throat. To locate this muscle, you do not have to do anything other than see where your previous throat muscles are located and look at the area slightly above them on either the left or right of the pig and there it is.
