MLA Resource Flock: Satellite flocks for eating quality and carcase traits

Call for Expressions of Interest

Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) are seeking breeders to collaborate and co-invest with the MLA Resource Flock project to contribute to the industry’s reference population by collecting additional measures of carcase and eating quality traits from industry animals as a satellite flock to the MLA Resource Flock.

The objective of this project is to increase the number of animals in the reference population for eating quality carcase phenotypes. In particular, with preference given, but not limited to, breeds that are currently unable to utilise genomic technologies due to limited reference population size. This will lead to increased ability to estimate breeding values for these hard to measure traits into the future.
