The BeefSpecs Calculator has been developed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries in collaboration with Meat and Livestock Australia, University of New England, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, University of California Davis, and US Department of Agriculture Meat Animal Research Center. The results provided by the calculator are indicative only and are dependent on the assumptions made and information supplied by the user. The results provided by the calculator are not a substitute for independent professional advice. The user relies on the results at their own risk and is advised to obtain their own independent and expert advice before making any decisions based on results using the calculator.
The calculator is made available on the understanding that the NSW Department of Primary Industries and the State of New South Wales does not accept any responsibility for any person relying on any opinion, advice, representation, statement or information whether expressed or implied by the calculator or results from the calculator, and disclaim all liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense incurred or arising by reason of any person using or relying on the calculator or results from the calculator or by reason of any error, omission, defect or mis-statement (whether such error, omission or mis-statement is caused by or arises from negligence, lack of care or otherwise).
The NSW Department of Primary Industries may collect non-identified information inputted into the calculator by users and results obtained from the calculator to conduct quality control assessments from time to time.
