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.Learn more
Access and analyse disease and defect conditions identified in carcases.Learn more
Analyse carcase information for indirect consignments and see progeny performance for improved genetics.Learn more
Understand the percentage of meat recovered from a carcase to drive profitability.Learn more
Integrity Systems Company developed a tool called 'Find My Data’ which allows producers to see if they have data in systems like LDL. Find My Data Is accessible via myMLA.
MLA research indicates non-compliance with market specifications costs up to $163 million per year across the beef industry. This includes value lost due to:
Additional benefits include:
Producers can use LDL to understand why their consignment did or did not comply with market requirements, including carcase compliance and animal health issues.
Processors have customised grids based on individual market requirements, so producers can easily see if a carcase was downgraded (i.e. discounted) and the reason why. Producers can access solutions to address non-compliance issues to help them decide what changes to make to increase compliance, and ultimately their returns.
Producers can also compare their own carcase performance figures to industry benchmarks within their region, state or the whole country, to identify further areas of improvement.

Three cost/benefit analysis projects have been undertaken.
One of the projects assessed the capacity of the LDL program to provide commercial benefits to the Australian beef and sheep livestock industries. This project encompassed six core components, aimed at assessing the benefits that LDL could potentially deliver to the Australian red meat livestock industries, and to the red meat processing sector. This analysis was used to support the assessment of a business case for further investment into the development and roll-out of the LDL program.
Another project independently reviewed the LDL program and undertook a cost/benefit analysis on the development of the program. The LDL cost/benefit analysis included the following:
Developed a costing model that captures the value benefit for each of the various sectors of the industry
Accessed data available from existing industry studies, conduct higher level liaison with the two processors involved in the pilot project, liaise with UNE and MLA to obtain other pertinent data that will be required to populate the model
Provided a cost/benefit, based on the available data that quantifies the benefits of LDL feedback information to each section of the supply chain
A final return on investment should be calculated for the LDL system and where possible, quantify the impact the system will have on relevant MLA Programs
Another project assisted individual plants piloting LDL, and industry, to assess the technical, operational, and commercial costs and benefits of LDL. This project included the beef and sheepmeat industries, and the processor, feedlot and producer sectors of the supply chain. It encompassed five core components, aimed at collecting and analysing the operational experience of the LDL pilots, complemented by targeted additional research and analysis.
