Beef Australia is happening in Rockhampton this week, and Teys are using the opportunity to showcase our progress towards objective carcase management with a series of short presentations and interactive displays of our latest technology. You can find out more about what we’re up to at Beef Australia here.
In February, we set a goal to adopt objective MSA grading is some of our operations within 2018. We are also assessing DEXA yield assessment technology under a major industry-backed trial at our Lakes Creek plant near Rockhampton in Central QLD, and have footage of this system in action on display at Beef 2018 throughout the week. We will have staff on hand to explain DEXA technology, including how it assess carcase yield and how it might fit within a modern beef supply chain. Any questions that you may have are also welcome.
As well as DEXA, we are also trying out a range of other carcase assessment technologies, both for meat quality and yield traits. One example of this technology is our US-designed/German-made E+V grading cameras, which we will have on site for demonstration purposes.
