Australian Lowline carcase data

Accurate carcase data means better Lowline promotion

Do YOU have Australian Lowline carcase information
that should be in Keith Smith's data base?

If you do, please pass it on URGENTLY.
It will help us in the future development of the breed.

KEITH SAYS: "Over the years we have heard lots of claims about Lowlines,
particularly regarding carcasses and meat quality. And certainly, individual breeders
have performed very well in carcase competitions. In an effort to gather as much accurate and credible information as possible, ALCA has appointed me to collect and record verifiable carcass information."

"We need carcass data from both Lowline and Lowline cross animals.
Lowline crosses must be bred from an identifiable
Lowline sire or dam and the other breed should be named.
The information needs to be verifiable so please let me know its source.
If you have results from past Hoof and Hook competitions, please send them.
I will be delighted."

The new data base that Keith is developing is likely to become
the most important tool in future Australian Lowline marketing and advertising campaigns. It may also assist in identifying better performing animals and genetic lines from within the Australian Lowline herd. So please do everything you can to get all appropriate information to Keith.

For further information, email Keith Smith at keimoi@wirefree.net.au or phone him on
02 48 29 2121. You can also fax Keith at 02 4829 2268 or post material to him
at PO Box 949, Goulburn NSW 2580.
