Mr Barton will speak about the commercial installation and roll-out of DEXA at Gundagai Meat Processors and the benefits that it is delivering to customers.

ICMJ shifted to digital delivery last month to make sure students and young industry professionals could continue to access meat science training and networking opportunities.

Its first webinar attracted more than 220 participants, and featured presentations from Dr Peter McGilchrist, of the University of New England, and Jasmine Green, of Teys Australia, speaking on New Technologies to Measure Eating Quality in Beef and Lamb.

The video recording of that webinar and all future webinars is available on the ICMJ website at cmj.com.au.

The ICMJ Association is a not-for-profit organisation run by a 100 per cent volunteer committee, funded by Meat and Livestock Australia and the Australian Meat Processing Corporation, as well as other industry sponsors.

Dr Gardner will speak about the importance of accurate yield measurement, current yield measures in lamb, and how DEXA can create new opportunities for meat processors.
