Users can see how the carcases they consigned comply with their target grid. Where carcase performance is not in line with the grid, a library of solutions is provided for producers to address non-compliance issues on farm, thereby improving the bottom line for both themselves and red meat processors.
Why is carcase compliance important?
The more compliant your livestock are to grid specifications the more profitable you can be. LDL gives you the opportunity to understand and use feedback from processors to improve the compliance of your next consignment.
