Healthy, fertile cows for pasture-based production
How much does it cost when a cow doesn't get pregnant in your seasonal calving herd? What if you could increase your conception rate, boost your lifetime production and reduce the costs and amount of work per cow?
VikingGoldenCross is a 3-breed rotational crossbreeding programme combining VikingHolstein, VikingRed and VikingJersey.
The combination of the three VikingGenetics breeds gives you:
- Healthy, fertile, ideally sized grazing cows that are easy to manage and equipped to walk long distances
- A +9% higher relative conception rate compared to two-way crossbred cows in a pasture-based production
- Higher fat and protein percentages and a higher lifetime production
- A better dairy form and beef value by adding VikingRed as the third breed
VikingGoldenCross is used by progressive farmers in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ireland and other countries. The concept is especially suitable for seasonal calving herds.
Based on decades of data collection and a focus on breeding for health and performance, VikingGoldenCross is your accurate and structured crossbreeding solution.
