Utilising New Technologies


At Derrynock we believe that great eating quality is an essential part of our prime product, and have been quick to embrace the technology that has allowed us to test for it, and benchmark ourselves against industry.

Our goal is to produce superior Eating Quality Genetics for Tenderness (Shear Force), and Marbling (IMF), with as little compromise to growth rates and Lean Meat Yield (LMY) as possible.

Achieving this goal is going to be challenging due to the negative correlation that exists between LMY and the Eating Quality traits of Tenderness & Marbling, but is a challenge we are excited to take on!

At Derrynock we believe that our Studs are well placed to achieve this goal, as we currently have sires with above average Eating Quality genetics, and several sires that are trait leaders for LMY.
