All heifers selected for breeding are assessed via Breedplan and the Aidansfield GrowSafe test facility for Net Feed Efficiency (NFE). The most efficient are kept as replacements and sold to customers anything not making the grade are fattened for high quality beef.

The bulls are also similarly assessed. Uniquely only the best bulls are offered for breeding sale. They must meet strict criteria for temperament, conformation, pelvic area, growth, Breedplan data and NFE. This limits bull sales to only 5 per annum, from a potential 60 offspring. This robust approach to continuous improvement ensures only the best genetics and temperament leave the farm for customers.
