The Lambulator: A Cut-Yield Calculator for the Lamb Direct Marketer
Superior Farms has received USDA approval to start grading lamb using an electronic grading system that utilizes a digital camera and algorithms for carcass measurements and yield grades, reports Meat + Poultry. The system will provide producers with a range of information about their lamb carcasses (USDA Yield Grade and Quality Grade, Ovine Cutability Calculation, and primal weights) that will help them make genetic and production changes. The American Lamb Board funded the electronic grading research conducted by Colorado State University.
