Feed Efficiency

High performing steers backed by documented efficiency genetics

The Sire Alliance is the longest running program of it's kind with progeny individually measured for feed intake since 1998.

While high feed cost in recent years has made feed efficiency a key trait of interest, no one can match the Sire Alliance's foresight and decade and a half of intake measurements.

  • The Feed Efficiency Index identifies the most profitable combinations of intake and gain
  • Backed by 20 years of individual progeny intake data
  • Feed efficiency genetics can account for as much as $40 value difference per calf
