National Beef Carcase Committee chairman, David Hill, said the appraisal system utilised in the competition has been specifically designed to meet both export and domestic market requirements and utilised the latest technology available to the beef industry.  The competition aims to give feedback to
producers about compliance of beef carcases to market specifications, yield of saleable meat, and predicted eating quality of those carcases.

The competition has been developed from the Australian Beef Carcase Appraisal System (ABCAS) by the National Beef Carcase Competition Committee of Beef Australia 2018. The subcommittee is composed of beef industry representatives, practitioners, processors and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA).

Exhibitors will be provided with result details of their entries. All winners will be announced at Beef Australia 2018 Gala Awards Dinner on Tuesday, May 8 at 6.30pm at a venue yet to be decided.
