From calving to slaughter, the beef supply chain journey is based on three major components: efficiency, health, and genetics.
The distribution amongst the rearer’s, finishers and processors is a key component to ensuring efficiency and each player can focus on what they do best. The efficiencies gained from this specialisation can heavily impact feed and health components, while the genetics can only be addressed in the beginning of the process at breeding stage, they have benefits throughout the whole supply chain.
Knowing the impact of genetics on efficiency, carcase, and meat quality, processors and finishers are now looking at genetics as a way to increase sustainability and profitability throughout the beef supply chain.
