An Update on the Grange Dairy Calf to Beef Trial

An Update on the Grange Dairy Calf to Beef Trial

Established in the spring of 2018, the Grange dairy calf to beef trial is headed up by researcher Nicky Byrne and technician Donal Fahy to compare the physical and financial performance of progeny from both Holstein Friesian and Aberdeen Angus sires used in the dairy herd.  These sires vary in breeding value for carcass weight and conformation and are managed in a grass-based system, aiming to be finished as steers under 24-months.  Nicky Byrne, researcher in Teagasc Grange joins Catherine Egan on this week’s Beef Edge to give an update on the latest results from the trial.
