People involved in this project

Genetic Impact Assessment

Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), the Australian Government, and others in the MLA animal genetics & genomics RD&E ‘program’ make investments in genetic and genomic technology to improve productive traits in livestock (meat and wool sheep, and beef). Meat and Livestock Australia needed to understand the return generated from their investment over a 10-year period, relative to the counterfactual and relative to the return generated from investments made by the other investors.

AbacusBio completed an extensive economic evaluation of the past and future impact of animal genetics and genomics RD&E investment in the Australian red meat sector
