Steer trial offers insight

NICK Browne, Gallagher territory manager Gippsland, is thrilled the livestock handling systems company is part of the Lardner Park Steer Trial for 2017.
“It really demonstrates what our brand-new product the TW1 weigh scale is geared around being able to see animal performance at the touch of a finger,” he said.
“It gives a producer the ability to be able to track live weight gain and gauge which animals are performing, and more importantly the animals that aren’t and make decisions based on this information.”
At the end of the trial, an on-site visit at Lardner Park will be held featuring detailed boning demonstrations followed by preparation and cooking demonstrations, ideal for farmers, chefs and restauranteurs, livestock agents, processors and suppliers, to see in detail ‘perfect’ and ‘imperfect’ carcass components.
This will allow them to appreciate what is required to achieve that top-dollar return on the best possible meat cuts.
An evening of entertainment, industry speakers and a premium meat eaters dining experience will follow.
Sarah Strachan, Meat Standards Australia program panager (MSA) said the MSA program looks forward to supporting the Lardner Park Steer Trial.
MSA grading of the carcases in the trial will provide valuable feedback to the participating producers on the eating quality performance of their cattle.
The feedback will include the extensive array of carcase measurements collected that predict beef eating quality. Producers can then link this information back to their on-farm practices including nutrition and genetics.
Trials such as the Lardner Park Trial are a great opportunity for producers to compare and share feedback to collectively strive for excellence in eating quality.
MSA is an eating quality grading system designed to improve the eating quality consistency of beef for consumers. The system is based on almost 700,000 consumer taste tests by more than 100,000 consumers from nine countries and takes into account all factors that affect eating quality from paddock to plate.
To receive regular updates on the program, content sharing, to access trial data, and an invitation to the boning, preparation and cooking demonstration together with the meat-eater gala dinner, sign up on the website on the Steer Trial Information page.
