This week, Sheep Ireland’s muscle and fat scanning technicians met to scan multiple animals during a correlation day. A second and third correlation day is planned for the technicians in the coming week. Correlation days are very important to compare and contrast scores by our technicians to ensure that there is no bias or inaccurate scores being taken. The Muscle and Fat Scanning is influential on the genetic evaluations of animals in the LambPlus programme and is a source of data for Sheep Ireland. The purpose of holding the Muscle and Fat Scanning Correlation day is to ensure that the Scanning Technicians are consistent with the measurements being taken.
