Lisnagre Handsome (HZJ) has a replacement index of €34 @ 75% reliability and a terminal index of €150 @ 92% reliability on his latest genomic proof (May 2018). He is 5 stars for carcass weight and 5 stars for carcass confirmation

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 HZJ. This animal was slaughtered at 19 months of age and was out of a HExSH dam.

The animal had a dry matter intake of 15.37 kilograms and recorded an average daily gain of 2.14 kilograms/day. This equates to a feed efficiency of 7.18.

The animal’s initial live-weight was 624 kilograms. He had a final live-weight of 812 kilograms and a carcass weight of 469 kilograms. This equated to a kill-out percentage 58%, carcass conformation of U+ and a fat score of 3+.
