 Beef Carcase Traits Project

 

The Beef Carcase Traits Project collates data from BCMS and abattoirs to produce Estimated Breeding Values for economically important carcase traits, like Days to Slaughter, Carcase Weight, Carcase Conformation and Carcase Fat Class.

The project has been funded by AHDB Beef and Lamb, AHDB Dairy and HCC with widespread industry support – with major inputs from both abattoirs and Breed Societies. Data analysis is provided by the EGENEs team at SRUC.
