Auroch Deuter PP has a replacement index of €148 @65% reliability and a terminal index of €94 @ 89% reliability on his latest genomic proof (May 2018).

Progeny from bulls were recently slaughtered after completing a feed efficiency trial at the Gene Ireland Progeny test centre located in Tully, Co. Kildare. Among the animals on test during this trial period was a son of (AHC). This animal was slaughtered at 20 months of age and was out of a LMxHE dam.

The animal had a dry matter intake of 14.06 kilograms and recorded an average daily gain of 2.39 kilograms/day. This equates to a feed efficiency of 5.88.
