S3 Ep22: Objective carcase measurement, with Graham Gardiner and Peter McGilchrist


Weekly Grill podcast host Kerry Lonergan turns up the heat on two of Australia’s leading meat scientists, Prof Graham Gardiner and Dr Peter McGilchrist – who have headed Australia’s recent research into objective carcase measurement. The ground-breaking ALMTech project driving advances in objective measurement for carcase yield and quality officially came to a close on 30 June.

So what’s been achieved? What remains to be done? Is there a risk of the work stalling, now that funding for the research under ALMTech has come to a close? Why does the industry even need objective measurement of beef and lamb carcases?

These and other questions are covered by Dr McGilchrist and Prof Gardiner, in this detailed four-way discussion with Weekly Grill editor Kerry Lonergan and Beef Central’s Jon Condon
