MSA Website

Meat Standards Australia (MSA) is a beef and sheepmeat eating quality program designed to take the guesswork out of buying and cooking Australian red meat. MSA involves all sectors of the supply chain from paddock to plate. A wide range of cattle and sheep management practices, processing systems, cuts, ageing periods and cooking methods have been researched to determine the impact each has on eating quality.

MSA is allowing the industry to move towards payment systems developed on carcass quality and underpins many of the new marketing aims of the processing industry. It allows processors to reliably quantify specifications for end users and consistently deliver product tailored to suit various markets.

Shorthorn and Shorthorn cross cattle grade extremely well through MSA. With the breeds excellent carcass traits, temperament, growth traits and the ability to finish from grass and grain fed programs, they regularly grade well for ossification, marbling and meat colour.
