Co-products are an important source of income for Australian livestock processors and include offals (edibles like heart, tripe); meat and bone meal (MBM); tallow; and hides. Co-product value per head varies between animals based on quality and weight, but with over 8 million cattle processed each year at an average of around $150 per head, the income generated is significant.
