National Bovine Livestock Language Guidelines
The Bovine Livestock Language presents Guidelines for the standardised terms applied as descriptors of bovine livestock.
The development of the National Bovine Livestock Language Guidelines was initiated through recommendations provided in the Beef Language Review White Paper, published in 2017 and endorsed by the Australian cattle industry.
These Guidelines are intended to foster the consistent application of descriptors of bovine livestock that connect to the carcase language and align to consumer meal language to ultimately support the prosperity of the Australian beef industry.
The Australian Meat Industry Language and Standards Committee (AMILSC) are the custodians of the National Livestock Language Guidelines, on behalf on the meat and livestock industry.
