Disease and Contamination Image Library

The development of a world class digital resource to support the training and assessment of red meat personnel has been achieved through the disease and contamination image library produced in this project.

The meat industry now has a modern easily accessible resource that contains a large number of examples of diseases and contamination photos that they may not otherwise be exposed to. This resource will be used to enhance training and assessment materials within the Australian Meat Processing Training Package and increase the competency of new and existing industry personnel in the areas of:

  • disease recognition at ante-mortem,
  • disease recognition at post-mortem,
  • recognition of contamination when MHA monitoring and trimming.
