Breeders honoured for breeding VikingGenetics top sires

On Tuesday 20th March the breeders of some of VikingGenetics best selling sires in the home markets were invited to a celebration event in the bull station in Assentoft, Denmark.

It is tradition to have an annual event of honouring the breeders and celebrating the sires’ performance and again this year it was a festive event when the breeders of six top sires visited the VikingGenetics head quarter and bull station in Assentoft, Denmark.
The breeders of the most sold VikingGenetics sires in home markets in 2017, celebrated on 20 March 2018.

The breeders saw – and heard about the famous sires that they have bred and sold to VikingGenetics, but they haven’t seen the bulls since they were picked up from the home herd as small calves. All but one were young genomic sires that have set their mark on home market daily plans and export markets over the last 1½ years. One of the sires, VJ Huzar, is however being honoured for his performance as a daughter proven sire.

The sires will contribute with sons for the future breeding work in VikingGenetics, and more sons have already been approved and bought by VikingGenetics. Now, after an active career in the home market daily plans, the sires are reserved for the export markets in which there is high demand.

The breeders of the sires are: Morten Hansen (VH River and VH Rozwell), Jesper Thomsen (VH Bradoc), Søren Røndbjerg (VR Lego), Sophia & Palle Bjerggard Hansen (VJ Quintana), Morten Jensen (VJ Hu-zar). Another three breeders and sires should have taken part in the event, but they were not able to participate: I/S Rønhave (VH Romello), Folmer Hadberg-Rasmussen (VR Abraham) and Anders Levring (VJ Hitman).
