Beef Genetics
Program

overview

Optimize the next generation of efficient genetics

As a producer, building an efficient cow herd with valuable, heritable traits to pass onto their progeny will pay dividends to your bottom line. GrowSafe’s industry-leading technology helps support you in producing more beef with less feed, forage and land. Our Beef Genetics Program arms you with the data, for each individual animal, to enable the selection for feed efficiency, perhaps the single most economically and environmentally important trait there is.

GrowSafe’s program automatically enables you to:

  • Measure individual animal feed intake and weight
  • Monitor animal behavior and growth
  • Predict feed efficiency traits
  • Optimize your breeding decisions

GrowSafe’s program provides you with:

  • Enhanced average daily gain (ADG)
    • GrowSafe uses multiple daily weights taken with our unique GrowSafe Beef® (GSB) technology to provide highly accurate ADG values
  • Enhanced dry matter intake (DMI)
    • GrowSafe’s industry-leading Feed Intake technology non-invasively measures individual animal feed intake, providing more accurate and relevant DMI values
  • Residual feed intake (RFI) calculation and EPDs
    • GrowSafe uses RFI, the gold standard method for calculating feed efficiency
  • Access to the GrowSafe Network
    • The industry’s most extensive independent feed efficiency data repository
