MSA Excellence in Eating Quality Awards

Meat & Livestock Australia hosted the Meat Standards Australia (MSA) Excellence in Eating Quality Awards as part of a series of national events held throughout September and October. 

The awards aim to raise awareness of MSA best management practice by recognising those producers in each state who consistently deliver superior eating quality beef for the benefit of consumers and the profitability of the industry. 

The criteria for the awards include outstanding compliance rates to MSA specifications, as well as high eating quality performance as represented by the MSA Index results for MSA graded cattle during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 financial years.
