MSA Marbling Score (MMS) RBVs are estimates of genetic difference between animals in MSA marbling score at the 12th/13th rib grading site on a 400kg steer carcase.
MMS RBVs are calculated from MSA marbling scores taken by an accredited carcase grader.
MSA Marbling Score RBVs are expressed in MSA marbling score units.
Higher, more positive MMS RBVs indicate the animal is expected to produce progeny with higher marbling scores in a 400kg steer carcase.
