Join us for a webinar on Apr 30, 2019 at 12:30 PM AEST.
From June 2019, Meat Standards Australia (MSA) will be rolling out several changes to its model, the MSA Vendor Declaration Form and myMSA.
Some of the changes relevant to MSA-registered cattle producers include:
• Hump height will be used as a direct predictor of eating quality: while hump height has always been measured as part of MSA, it will now be used as a direct predictor of eating quality rather than an estimate of tropical breed content.
• A revised MSA Vendor Declaration form: The form will simplify how producers record tropical breed content and it will provide an option for owners who use agistment or custom feeding to receive direct carcase feedback through the myMSA feedback portal.
• New myMSA features and look: producers will have access to an Opportunity Index on cattle that did not meet minimum MSA grading requirements, giving producers an indication of the potential value of those carcases if they addressed the reasons for non-compliance. Users will also notice a refreshed, more user-friendly myMSA online portal.
Join MSA Producer Engagement Officer, Laura Garland, as she walks through the changes and what they mean for MSA-registered cattle producers.
