Abstract

Relationships between various measured carcase characters and carcase weight were established for the other Australian states as they have been for Queensland. Examination of the grouped data from all states confirms the evidence previously given of an overall bias favouring lower weight ranges. Arguments for and against modification of the Hammond system for Australian baconer carcase competitions are presented.
