Satellite flocks for eating quality and carcase traits

Satellite flocks for eating quality and carcase traits

August 29 2022

Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) are seeking breeders to collaborate and co-invest with the MLA Resource Flock project and 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 project is looking for partners to collect the data and DNA samples for lambs born and slaughtered prior to June 2024. Individual breeders and/or breeder groups are invited to submit an EOI by completing the form below.  To participate you will need to effectively manage and co-ordinate all the on-farm components of the  project and organise with a processor to consign the lambs. 

More information and details can be found in the Terms of Reference MLA Satellite Flocks for EQ Round 3.

To submit an application please complete the Template for EOI submission.

Expressions of interest will need to be submitted by COB on 23rd September 2022.
