With in excess of $3 million in progeny sales, the ten year old $450,000 valued GAR Prime Time 2409, continues to be a DOMINANT force for Marbling! She is also a DOMINANT force for Feed Conversion!
A recently released scientific trial undertaken by major U.S. Angus breeders and various University Bull Test Facilities in the U.S., measured the Feed Efficiency trait characteristics of over 1000 Angus bulls. Included in this Feed Efficiency testing were sons of many dominant bulls and cows from legendary cow families.
The trait measured was Residual Feed Intake (RFI). Cows that possess this trait are 21% - 30% more efficient in converting feed and more importantly , have the ability to consistently pass this trait on to their offspring! One cow consistently ranked at the top of the test list for Residual Feed Intake, passing on this Feed Efficiency trait to every bull offspring tested. That cow was GAR Prime Time 2409!
Her production record includes a Birth Weight Ratio of 98 on 2 natural calves, a Weaning Ratio of 100 (2), Yearling Ratio of 103 (2) to go with an IMF Ratio of 108 on 51 calves and RE Ratio of 102 on 151 calves.
THERE IS NO OTHER PROVEN COW IN THE BREED WITH THE ABILITY TO IMACT FEED EFFICIENCY AND MARBLING AT 2409'S LEVEL - PERIOD!
