LMY and EQ Producer Demonstration Sites - Victorian sites carcase measurement

This project is part of a national project to deliver proof of concept for lean meat yield (LMY), eating quality (EQ) and validation of Research Breeding Values for lean meat yield and eating quality traits within major supply chains to facilitate, empower and develop a common focus and normal trading mechanisms on these future key industry profit drivers right along the supply chain. A total of 417 lambs from two cooperating commercial lamb producers were slaughtered and assessed for LMY and EQ characteristics. There were 221 and 196 lambs slaughtered from cooperating producers T. Fleetwood and G Gubbins, respectively. A total of 175 lambs were assessed for eating quality, including 84 from the Fleetwood and the 91 from Gubbins sites. These data will be aggregated with comparable data collected from other sites in the national project and reported in the national project Final Report B.SCC.0144.
