|Title:||Relationships between carcass and beef quality and components of herd profitability in northern Australia||Contributor(s):||Burrow, Heather Mary (author); Johnston, David (author); Barwick, Stephen (author); Holroyd, RG (author); Barendse, W (author); Thompson, John Mitchell (author); Griffith, GR (author); Sullivan, M (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4385||Abstract:||This paper presents an overview of a project established to examine a pivotal issue in Australian beef cattle genetic improvement: "Can we change carcass and beef quality attributes by selection without unduly compromising key fitness traits like reproductive performance and adaptation to harsh environmental stressors?" Industry outcomes from the project are targeting multiple traits and multifaceted strategies for improving carcass and beef quality, feed efficiency, female fertility and adaptation to tropical environments, and use of tools such as Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs), genetic (DNA based) markers, ultrasound scanning and meat processing and cattle management strategies. Results to the questions being asked by the project will be available by 2006.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||15th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Melbourne, Australia, 7-11 July, 2003||Conference Details:||15th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Melbourne, Australia, 7-11 July, 2003||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 15th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 359-362||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Victoria, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830301 Beef Cattle||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/livestocklibrary/2003/359-362.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 268
