Additional Facts

An independent study showed Lowline cattle with 40% increase in retail product yield per acre off grass. This higher than normal retail yield has been documented repeatedly by ultra sound measurements in the US and Australia that consistently show a 30% larger rib eye area per hundred weight. This translates into a boneless retail product yield of 20 to 30% more retail product per hundred weight of carcass per testing conducted in the US.
