The Growsafe system will find the outliers in the population for feed efficiency.  8801 is that freak on the low end of the spectrum.  His gain was nearly right on the average with the group, but intake was a freakish 13 lbs./day.  That is a ratio of 201 which means he ate half the amount of feed of the average for the group.  That calculates at less that 3.5 lbs. of feed per lb. of gain.  Incredible!!  Put that efficiency with a top 5% $BMI and think about what kind of replacement females he generates.
