Vytelle has been working with progressive breeders for over 30 years to identify feed efficient genetics and is considered the gold standard phenotypic data capture technology. Vytelle curates the world’s largest multibreed feed efficiency database and releases the Top 150 Proven Bulls each year, showcasing feed efficiency cattle. Continuing our leadership path and commitment to industry partnerships, Vytelle is pleased to announce a collaboration with Angus Genetics Inc (AGI). With permission from Vytelle customers, Vytelle will now facilitate the automatic flow of feed intake and weight data for Vytelle customers and clients testing at Vytelle bull test stations and on farm.
This is an exciting opportunity for the Angus breed to automate data collection, flow and increase recording of one of the most important traits to drive sustainable and profitable breeding.
The collection of quality, standardized, individual feed intake data has the most sizable impact on improving the accuracy of breeding evaluations to inform breeding decisions on the efficiency of the herd.
Producers who are investing in collecting this data can now ‘opt in’ for a complimentary service, provided by Vytelle, that will automate the sharing of their data to AGI with approvals if they wish to. This is another step forward in unlocking this hard to capture trait, insuring that accurate, timely data is provided to the AGI evaluation for the benefit of the breed and collaborators.
