Improvements in feed efficiency (FE) can lead to significant economic benefits and reduce the environmental footprint of any beef cattle production system. Animals selected for FE on high-protein (HP) diets are expected to perform as efficiently on low-protein (LP) diets. Thus, the objective of this experiment was to determine the agreement between FE rankings of beef cattle fed a HP and a LP diet.
