13/12/2017: EID lamb carcass feedback survey currently down

Quality Meat Scotland has asked SAOS and ScotEID to gauge interest amongst Scottish sheep producers in receiving abattoir feedback on their individual, known animals. For example, with respect to carcass grade, weight and price.

To help identify the potential to expand EID-facilitated lamb reporting by Scottish abattoirs, we are
interested in views across the sheep industry (including pedigree, finisher and breeding flocks) regarding the benefits of and barriers to uptake. Some of you may receive a direct request by email,
but to help us understand reasons for seeking or not seeking EID-facilitated feedback, all sheep
farmers are invited to please complete the survey available here: (N.B. If you have not completed the mandatory sheep and goat inventory (see below) then we would advise you do so first.)
