THE SILVER FERN FARMS EATING QUALITY (EQ) SYSTEM GRADING CRITERIA
Silver Fern Farms accredited EQ Master Graders are essential to how they hand-select the best red meat. Their Master Graders assess individual carcases to collect attributes which are used in the grading process.
For each graded carcase the ticket is scanned to obtain the carcase weight, date and carcase number. All carcase measurements are entered into their EQ database. Eating quality outcomes for the different cuts of meat are then generated based on the attribute scores.
