With nearly 600 cattle already recorded through the Beef Feed Efficiency Programme, this major industry project is progressing well.
The four-year Defra and AHDB-funded Beef Feed Efficiency Programme will demonstrate how feed efficiency traits can be measured and selected for in beef cattle, illustrating how the most efficient cattle will eat less than others but grow at the same rate. This will provide significant opportunities for beef producers to cut the cost of production. More information can be found via this link BFEP-Project-Update-Jan17
