Abstract

This paper provides an introduction to this Special Issue of the Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture. The special issue is dedicated to an integrated research program that was intended to increase the understanding of the effects of breed and genetic selection for live animal traits (growth, muscle and fatness) on carcass and meat attributes. Combined with this are the effects of animal age and nutritional restriction at critical weaning points. The reasons for, and general approach, of the research are outlined.
