    Note that producers were asked about several different feed efficiency measures. However, much of the focus of our surveys was on RFI. Each of the feed efficiency measures are described in more detail in other chapters in this book. M3 - Chapter (peer-reviewed) SN - SP - EP - BT - Feed efficiency in the beef industryAuthor: J. D. Wulfhorst, Stephanie Kane, Jason K. Ahola, John B. Hall, Rodney A. Hill. 4) Feed Efficiency (FE) is the weight of dry matter feed fed to an animal to produce one pound of gain. Calculate your market beef project’s FE. Note. A normal beef FE range is 6 – 8: Total lbs. of Feed Fed: lbs. (sum this from pg. 6) Dry Matter Feed = Total Feed Fed. lbs. X File Size: KB.

    Importance of Feed Efficiency Feed costs = 66% in calf feeding systems Feed costs = 77% in yearling finishing systems Anderson et al. 10% improvement in gain = +18% profit 10% improvement in efficiency = +43% profit Fox et al. Efficiency increases times the economic impact of. Improving growth rates and feed efficiency is a common goal among producers as increasing pay-weight typically increases profitability of the cowherd operation. Growth promoting implants have been used for over 40 years, and have been shown to increase both feed efficiency and improve growth rate (Preston ). When properly used, few management.

    Feeding ß-AA to beef cattle increases muscle mass and improves average daily gain, feed efficiency, hot carcass weight, and dressing percentage. Acceptance of growth-promoting substances is problematic, especially in Europe, due to concerns with the environment and the . Although feed efficiency has been studied for decades and feedlot profitability is clearly impacted by feed efficiency, the beef industry is well behind the competition. Feedlot cattle typically have FCR at or above , swine are Cited by: 3.

Feed efficiency is increasingly seen as an important factor in both the economic viability and environmental sustainability of cattle production.

This book provides beef industry professionals and researchers with a thorough yet concise overview of feed efficiency by: Feed efficiency is a multifactorial and complex trait in beef cattle and inter-animal variation stems from the interaction of many biological processes influenced, in turn, by physiological status.

The cattle industry's greatest profit potential isn't necessarily in carcass quality or in any so-called "premiums." It's in reproductive efficiency and post-weaning feed date, the industry has no Economic Efficiency EPDs, the most important of which for the cow-calf operation is actually an EPD for reproductive efficiency.

For the stocker or feeder, selection for feed efficiency can. Lucky 7 Angus measures feed intake with a state of the art "Grow Safe" feed efficiency test system, one of the few owned solely by a seedstock producer. Great strides have been taken in every aspect of efficiency in agriculture, except in the area of genetic feed efficiency in beef cattle.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Considering the tough times in with BSE and the increasing feed prices from onward, knowing that 70% of beef production costs are feed related, the targeted selection for improved feed efficiency in the cow herd will only improve the return on investments (ROI’s).

In animal husbandry, feed conversion ratio (FCR) or feed conversion rate is a ratio or rate measuring of the efficiency with which the bodies of livestock convert animal feed into the desired output.

For dairy cows, for example, the output is milk, whereas in animals raised for meat (such as beef cows, pigs, chickens, and fish) the output is the flesh, that is, the body mass gained by the. Approximately 55 to 75% of the total costs associated with beef cattle production are feed costs.

A 5% decrease in feed efficiency could have an economic impact four times greater than a 5% improvement in average daily weight gain. Studies in feedlot cattle showed that 10% improvement in average daily gain (ADG) as a result of a 7% increase in appetite improved profitability 18%, whereas.

It provides a balanced approach to identify cattle that, with a given quantity of feed, will still perform at industry acceptable levels. Individual feed intake data captured at efficiency collection facilities has the most sizable impact on improving the accuracy of the EPD.
