An Explanation

GeneSTAR Feed Efficiency4

GeneSTAR® Feed Efficiency4 is a test for four separate DNA markers that affect Feed Efficiency in an animal. This is a four marker test for Feed Efficiency that has been evaluated on animals with measured feed efficiency

GeneSTAR Marbling4

GeneSTAR® Marbling4 is a test for four separate DNA markers that affect marbling in an animal. This test enables cattle breeders to select individuals that carry copies of the favourable, high marbling forms of the four markers. The high marbling forms of these markers have been shown in CSIRO research to be associated with increased marbling in cattle.

GeneSTAR Tenderness4                                                                                                                                     GeneSTAR® Tenderness4 is a test for four separate DNA markers that affect Tenderness (measured by shear force) in the carcase. Research shows that animals with more stars are genetically programmed to be more tender, resulting in significantly fewer unsatisfactory eating experiences.
