ON-DIT has a replacement index of €116 @94% reliability and a terminal index of €129 @ 95% reliability on his latest genomic proof (Sep 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 (ONI).

The animal had a dry matter intake of 13.63 kilograms/day and recorded an average daily gain of 2.11 kilograms/day. This equates to a feed efficiency of 6.46.
