Abstract: DNA-marker technology has the potential to assist seed-stock beef producers with genetic improvement of traits that are difficult to measure, and to assist research workers in identifying chromosomal regions containing quantitative trait loci (QTL), and eventually genes, which control animal performance traits. A collaborative study was established in 1995 between AgResearch in New Zealand (NZ) and Adelaide University in Australia to search for DNA markers significantly linked to production, carcass and meat quality traits in beef cattle. The present paper reports on a sub-set of that data, namely evidence from microsatellite markers on chromosome (Chr) 14 of significant linkage to growth traits and hot carcass weight (HSCW) at a standard level of trim.
