The dam of VR Viljar, sired by newly proven bull VR Niki, was bought as an embryo to the Kuusela farm. She is out of the famous Lakiala cow family owned by Sakari Oksanen, from where VR Uudin originates. The cow family is a family of successes, and the MGD of Viljar is the sister of VR Uudin. She was sold to the ASMO nucleus herd where she was flushed several times. 

The dam of VR Viljar was flushed twice as a heifer on a contract with VikingGenetics, first with VR Lazer and then with VR Vimur, the latter becoming VR Viljar. There are also heifers with high, genomic test results out of these flushes on the farm. The dam of VR Viljar is an “invisible cow”. The first lactation was not in top for production even though with great components 5.0% fat and 4.1% protein. She had twins some weeks ago and after her second calving, she has started with 50 kg daily production.
