Feedback drives GMP's move into DEXA

We have been working closely with Gundagai Meat Processors and have just completed our 97th production since commencing there. We have processed 30,000 lambs at GMP since January this year. We are excited about the technology we are able to use to grade lambs at GMP and as a result, the feedback we are provided with is first class. This improves overall efficiencies and ensures that we can all strive for continual improvement from a producer level right through to the end product.
  • GMP have just installed a DEXA X-ray unit at the end of the slaughter floor
  • DEXA will provide information on lean meat yield, bone percentage and fat percentage for each carcase
  • DEXA will help GMP and KC Natural to be able to respond to the market according to the information gathered in the plant

Red meat vital to global food security
