Usage of MLA education and extension resources – Creative Commons (CC)

MLA and its partners have funded the development of education and extension resources (including manuals, tools and calculators) to benefit Australian red meat producers. To improve the accessibility of these resources to industry, MLA and its partners have adopted an ‘easy access creative commons’ approach. Below is a list of resources that are available via creative commons licencing.

  • Beef Carcase Value Calculator

    The Beef Carcase Value Calculator has been developed to estimate the gross profitability of beef carcases.

    This Excel based carcase calculator uses currently available (and evolving) carcase grading inputs to predict the weight of commercial cuts specified by the user, as defined by their end market specifications. This, coupled with price/kg and costs, enables the processor to determine the value of the carcase depending on what cutting/boning end market specifications are available for each carcase for the processors supply chain.

    The results from the BVC are estimates only and are not guaranteed. None of the results from use of the BVC should be treated as recommendations or advice. The information, models and spread sheet tools are made available on the understanding that MLA is not providing any recommendation or professional advice. The BVC and the results provided are generic and do not take into account your personal circumstances. The results are a guide only and not intended to be relied on for the purposes of decision making. You should make your own enquiries and seek professional advice before making decisions concerning your interests and particular circumstances. Other than as required by consumer protection law, under no circumstances will MLA be liable for any loss and/or damage caused by your reliance on estimates or information obtained by using the BVC. MLA specifically disclaims any liability (whether based in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise) for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or special losses and/or damages arising out of or in any way connected with the use of the BVC or by your reliance on estimates or information obtained by using the BVC.

    It is recommended that new users seek ALMTech guidance on understanding the calculator functionality and to receive support in developing a use case. The designated contact is Richard Apps rapps@mla.com.au
