The research team at Livestock Gentec has over a decade of results that can provide beef producers with tools to improve their production efficiency, sustainability and profitability.
Livestock Gentec’s Feeder Profit Index
Achieve your efficiency, profitability and sustainability targets sooner with Gentec’s new Feeder Profit Index (FPI). The FPI is a tool to select sires that will improve feed efficiency, growth, carcass value and net profit in feeder progeny. This index was developed and validated in Western Canadian cattle and for each 100 unit change in sire FPI there was an increase in $29 of profit per feeder.

Livestock Gentec’s Replacement Heifer Profit Index
Selecting the best replacement heifers is essential to improve production efficiency and the lifetime profitability of each cow in your herd. A new genomic index is being developed at Gentec to select replacement heifers with increased hybrid vigour, feed efficiency, fertility and longevity. The Replacement Heifer Profit Index (RHPI) was developed from nearly 10,000 mating opportunities from commercial cows in Alberta. Validation is on-going before commercial deployment.
