Sensory quality traits such as tenderness, flavour intensity and juiciness tend to be positively correlated to one another, and genetic correlations between these traits and shear force tend to be negative (lower shear force equals more tender).

For example, most cattle breed associations in the United States now produce EPDs for marbling and a few have published EPDs for tenderness measured by shear force. A low proportion of beef cattle and sheep are performance-recorded and included in genetic improvement programmes.
