RECENT kill and scan results from 39 head of hereford steers highlight the exceptional performance and meat quality that can be achieved from the breed, said Herefords Australia CEO John McKew.

The steers were part of cohort two from the ongoing Herefords Australia Progeny Test.

Mr McKew said when it came to feedlot performance and meat quality, herefords were top of the beef game.

"The commercial sector of the industry is always seeking to improve performance and profitability," he said.

"The results from this recent cohort of hereford steers from our Progeny Test (BIN) Project highlight once again what herefords can achieve for the commercial sector."
