Sheep farmers invited to ‘Meat the Market’

Sheep farmers invited to ‘Meat the Market’

SHEEP FARMERS have been invited to attend a free meeting to help them boost their bottom line by improving their livestock selection and presentation for slaughter.

The meeting, at Scotbeef, Bridge of Allan, next Thursday, August 15, is the first of the 2019 ‘Meat the Market’ events organised by Quality Meat Scotland, which aim to improve the link between farmers and processors and highlight the key factors that need to be considered by farmers to ensure that their livestock meet the target carcase specifications required by processors.

The event will help farmers understand the lamb market specifications and how carcase spec may differ based on customer requirements. Carcase grading and presentation will also be covered to help farmers maximise their returns and minimise the risk of condemnations and carcase downgrades.
