Integrating quality criteria in beef cattle breed selection

A qualitative survey conducted by the Institute of livestock production (Institut de l’Elevage) as part of the OSIRIS program, was conducted with different actors in the meat industry. It shows that professionals were largely in favor of the integration of quality criteria in beef cattle breed selection. The three main criteria mentioned were tenderness, meat color and the presence of fat. The genomics revolution and the growing understanding of quality criteria may allow the industry to move in that direction. The survey was conducted as part of OSIRIS, a program funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and by France Génétique Elevage. This program intends to provide decision-making for selection guidance through bioeconomic models for the five ruminant species. Discussions will be led to determine how to make the most of meat tenderness costs, the most important criterion for the actors interviewed in the bio-economic modeling.
