IMPORTANT - You must be using an accredited carcase scanner
As a way to underpin the integrity of the Sheep Genetics programs and to ensure your breeding values are as accurate as possible, it is a requirement that all members who wish to submit carcase scan data have that information collected by an accredited operator.
A full list of those accredited can be found under the Service Provider tab on our website.
Data needs to be submitted by 5pm AEST on the dates listed above to be included in the analysis. Please allow up to 2 weeks for data to be returned.
