How does the Meat Standards Australia (MSA) grading system for beef and lamb work?


Anthony Puharich a 5th generation Australian butcher meets with Lachlan Graham, an Australian beef and lamb
producer and proprietor of Argyle Prestige Meats to find out how meat is graded using the the Meat
Standards Australia system.
It all began in 1996 when the Australian industry embarked on one of the largest consumer research projects
in history. Over 100,000 people tasted and rated almost 700,000 beef and lamb samples so we could
understand exactly what’s required to produce the great quality meat. From this research we developed the
Meat Standards Australia system.
The research told us that the most important factors to take into consideration were meat colour, PH or
acidity, marbling, fat coverage, weight and age of the animal. It also covered other things like breed,
nutrition and how well the animals are raised and handled because stressed animals result in dark, tough
meat.

Everyone involved with the MSA program, from the farmer to where you buy your quality meat is licensed,
accredited and audited to make sure the integrity of the MSA symbol stays true and all our hard work pays
off.
So as you can see it’s the years of research and thousands of dedicated people across the entire industry
working together to make sure you can choose the best cuts of beef and lamb and cook them the right way.
That’s why you should always look for the MSA symbol to enjoy great tasting beef and lamb meals every time.

Meat Standards Australia (MSA) for beef and lamb begins at the farm


Lachlan Graham, an Australian beef and lamb producer and proprietor of Argyle Prestige Meats explains to
Anthony Puharich how beef and lamb is produced on the farm.
Australian farmers have responded to the changing requirements of the market by adopting a sustainable
approach to all aspects of farming; this is where the MSA grading system begins. That beautiful, juicy
steak on your plate can only happen if producers get things right on the farm first.

All breeds of sheep and cattle are eligible for MSA grading, and grazing animals on high quality feed
maximizes their growth rates which impact marbling and fat coverage, critical if you want a juicy, tender
cut.

How farmer treat their animals is super important. Cattle or sheep with high stress levels can lead to
dark, tough meat which won’t make the MSA grade, so keeping them calm and happy is essential. That’s why
farmers keep them in the same mob and move them as quietly as possible. Under MSA farmers have to meet
super strict guidelines relating to how their livestock are handled and transported. The MSA system also
provides producers with feedback and training to ensure they continue to produce the highest quality beef
and lamb every time.

As you can see, it’s the pride and commitment from Aussie farmers like Lachlan and his family combined with
the integrity of the MSA supply chain that produces the best beef and lamb in the world. So when you see
that MSA symbol, you know everyone has given it their all to make sure you get the best meal money can buy!

Meat Standards Australia (MSA) – Producing the best beef and lamb in the world


Anthony Puharich is a 5th generation Australian Butcher and proprietor of Victor Churchill Butchery, Vic’s
Meats and askthebutcher.com.au; he works with the world’s best quality meat every day and he love’s what he
does. Here he explains how the Meat Standards Australia system produces the best beef and lamb in the
world.

The Australian beef and lamb industries are critical to our nation’s prosperity. They directly employ over
200,000 Australians who work hard to produce the best beef and lamb in the world.

That’s why in 1996 our industry embarked on one of the largest consumer research projects in history. Over
100,000 people tasted and rated almost 700,000 beef and lamb samples so we could understand exactly what’s
required to produce great quality meat. From this research we developed the Meat Standards Australia
grading system.

So when you see the MSA symbol on a cut of beef or lamb you know that everyone from the farmer to the
butcher or the chef has worked tirelessly to make sure you always get the best quality money can buy.
That’s how MSA takes the guesswork out of buying Australia’s best beef and lamb.

Join 5th generation Australian butcher Anthony Puharich as he explains how the Meat Standards Australian
grading system helps you to buy and cook quality beef and lamb.
Years of experience have helped Anthony become an excellent judge of beef and lamb quality, thankfully the
job of identifying tender, juicy beef and lamb cuts has been done for you by the Meat Standards Australia
grading system.

lamb across the country.
