The August 2023 proofs were very positive for VikingRed, with excellent results across the board. VikingRed bulls give you healthy, trouble-free cows with high reliability, making them an excellent choice for crossbreeding.


The UK’s #1 Proven Ayrshire

VR Venom is the leading Ayrshire bull in the UK, with an impressive PLI of £496. Thanks to his excellent daughter fertility, he ranks highly for HealthyCow (195) and offers good indexes for milk solids production and SCC.

Three Generations of Top Genetics

The August 2023 proofs also gave us a unique occurrence as, for the first time, there are three generations of VikingRed bulls in our daily selection: VR Ulvar, VR Uppura, and VR Vimo.

Genetic progress makes this very unusual, as older bulls are usually less competitive than the younger sires. However, thanks to the reliability and continuity of VikingRed breeding, you can experience super strong bulls across three generations:

  • £PLI 380
  • Exceptional production of milk and solids
