Genetic Evaluation

How we work

The GrowSafe facility is primarily utilised for performance testing of Aidansfield herd.

However in a total of 5 test periods available in any one year two periods are available for other cattle to be tested for net feed efficiency (NFE). However it will be contingent upon strict health criteria being met. This presents an opportunity for breed societies or pedigree breeders to develop their breeding programmes.

What is NFE? Please watch this short video.
