YV Ranch is located outside of Calgary, Alberta. They have been testing for feed efficiency for eight years. At the start, YV Ranch tested their yearling bulls at a local GrowSafe research station. YV Ranch saw the need to make faster generational progress by testing both replacement females and all bulls. In 2018, YV Ranch installed a GrowSafe System® and uses the Beef Genetics Program to measure, identify and select for feed efficient genetics while improving their overall profitability. In addition, YV Ranch is reducing methane and manure production and improving sustainably while producing more beef with fewer resources.
