|Our test goal is to average 3.5 lbs. of gain per day
over a 110 day test period. This is
NOT A MAXIMUM GAIN TEST,
but it does allow the bulls to express their genetic potential for post-weaning
Rate of gain and cost of gain are closely correlated. Rate of gain is moderately high in heritability. Since most cattle pass through the feedlot on their way to the dinner plate, rate of gain is an important economic trait. The COMPARISON of the RATE OF GAIN in a large population of bulls provides important SELECTION INFORMATION for our bull CUSTOMERS and for our GENETIC ALLIANCE BREEDERS.
