Healthy animals in the Jämtland countryside
Magdalena and Simon Sundell own Haxäng Mjölkgård AB in Brunflo in the middle of Sweden. Here they run an organic dairy farm.
It was the previous owner who started ProCROSS in 2014. He was dissatisfied with the durability of his Holstein and found that when they got sick, they never recovered.
In 2018, Magdalena and Simon bought the farm and in the same year, they had a ProCROSS meeting together with Växa.
After the 2018 drought, they decided to go all in. Today they are very happy with that decision.
Robust calves and good sustainability
“The calves have great growth”, says Simon. The heifers grow more than 1 kg per day and at 92 days of age they weigh between 150-160 kg.
“In the past, there was always a shortage of heifers. The heifers are getting better every year, and now we have a surplus and must sell some.”
