|Title:||CRC 'Regional Combinations' project: effects of genetics and growth paths on beef production and meat quality: experimental design, methods and measurements||Contributor(s):||McKiernan, W A (author); Wilkins, J F (author); Barwick, Stephen (author); Tudor, G D (author); McIntyre, Brooke Louise (author); Graham, J F (author); Deland, M P B (author); Davies, L (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1071/EA05061||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2813||Abstract:||As a component of the second term of the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Cattle and Beef Quality, a project to further test and validate the effects of varying nutritional growth paths pre-finishing and slaughter on cattle of varying genetic potential for meat yield and eating quality was designed and implemented. This project, 'Regional Combinations', was a multi-site experiment, using 'Bos taurus' cattle generated at 4 locations across southern Australia. The design of imposing different growth paths between weaning and finishing on cattle with specific genetic potential is common across sites. Treatment and interaction effects on beef production and meat quality were examined within and across sites. This paper describes the experimental designs, generation of experimental cattle at the various sites and the measurements, collection and storage of the data for multi-site analyses.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 45(8), p. 959-969||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||ISSN:||0816-1089||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830301 Beef Cattle||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an4599774||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 240
