Lean meat yield and eating quality producer demonstration sites - Western Australian sites carcase measurement

Four Producer Demonstration Sites (PDS) were undertaken in Western Australia to demonstrate the value of research breeding values (RBVs) for lean meat yield (LMY) intramuscular fat (IMF) and shear force (SF5) in prime lamb and Merino production systems.  Lambs from three sites were finished according to normal on-farm practices and processed across two plants.  In addition, intramuscular fat and shear force samples from WA have been analysed along with IMF samples from other Australian sites.

Data collected from these PDS will be aggregated with data from other sites and analysed under the national coordination project, B.SCC.0144, to determine the value of RBVs for LMY and eating quality traits to ram breeders, lamb producers and processors.
