VR Vimpula – A production winner bull
Valpas x Peterslund x Etroni
NTM +28

The Valpas sons are now on podium among progeny proven sires now. The best of them is VR Vimpula NTM +28. His breeders are Kati and Ari Luukkonen, Finland. VR Vimpula, who is a former GenVikPLUS sire and has also been producing X-Vik semen, got his first progeny proof now with 250 daughters. He is a great production sire with index 122. His proof is balanced with average health and fertility and very easy calvings.

Vimpula is an example of the success of ET work. The maternal grand dam was bought to Kuusela farm as a heifer and was flushed several times. Today this cow, Nelli, has given a total of almost 140,000 kg milk with 4.1% fat and 3.5% protein, being her best lactation 11,600 kg milk, 3.9% fat and 3.5% protein. She has calved 13 times. The daughter Unilaulu (s. Peterslund) is the dam of VR Vimpula. Unilaulu’s lifetime production was more than 70,000 kg milk, her best lactation at 13,400 kg milk with components 4.4 and 3.6.

The breeder of VR Lego is Søren Røndbjerg, Denmark, as for many other VR sires as well. 

VR Lego is out of one of the most famous cow families in VikingRed. The great-grand dam, a Vest Bæk cow, got 47 offspring and gave close to 100,000 kg milk. The grand dam is a super S Adam cow and she is the dam of following sires: VR Paplo, VR Babylon and VR Corona. She is also included in the pedigree of VR Tacoma and VR Wonder. The dam of VR Lego was flushed once as a heifer. Her first lactation was 10,000 kg milk with 4.5% fat and 3.7% protein. MGD has an average of 11,000 kg milk with 5.1% fat and 3.9% protein and MGGD 10,600 kg milk with 4.9% fat and 3.6% protein.

VR Lego is a good production sire with positive protein component. He gives excellent feet and leg quality as well as udder conformation. We have also X-Vik stock of him.

VR Abraham comes from Folmer Hadberg-Rasmussen, Denmark. VR Abraham has a different sire line, his sire VR Aatami, being the son of Asmo Andrei. The dam has been flushed once with excellent result: 28 transferable embryos. She will soon start her second lactation. The MGD who is a longevitable cow has also been flushed like maternal great dam. In average, the MGD has given almost 11,000 kg milk with components 4.2% fat and 3.4% protein. VG has flush contracts also for two full sibs of VR Abraham.

VR Abraham is a great production sire with easy calvings and very good udder health. Average size, great feet and legs and very good attachments in udder need to be mentioned. Also VR Abraham is in X-Vik production.
