This practical event, run by EBLEX & MLC Services Ltd, allows you to handle live animals and make your assessment of fat cover and conformation using the EUROP grid. You will then see the same animals on the hook in the chillers and the actual classification so you can compare the assessments made whilst the animals were alive.
 
 
 
There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss various market requirements, factors affecting killing out percentages and dressing specifications.
 
 
 
Other topics include:
 
Current consumer demands 
Characteristics of breeds 
Abattoir/Livestock Market requirements 
Hygiene requirements – farm and abattoir 
 
 
Discussion with the trainers and other participants will give you a greater insight into these areas.
 
 
 
On the day you will need to bring CLEAN wellingtons and something warm for the chillers.
