Interbull confirms high genetic level for VikingGenetics' bulls

Nordic bulls are ranking higher on multiple traits in comparison to bulls from e.g. USA, Canada and New Zealand. 

The International Bull Evaluation Service (Interbull) is a permanent subcommittee of the International Committee for Animal Recording (ICAR). Interbull is the worldwide network providing genetic information services for improvement of livestock.

Interbull list confirms the outstanding genetic level for VikingHolstein

 
The International Bull Evaluation Service shows an excellent performance for Holstein bulls from Denmark, Sweden and Finland in comparison with bulls from the rest of the world. VikingGenetics bulls are the top performers in Udder Health, Fertility & Yield for daughter-proven bulls (born in 2011 or later).
 
The Nordic countries have managed to have high yield in combination with superior health. Exceptional health and reproduction and high production are at the heart of the breeding goal of the dairymen in Scandinavia.  
 
At the same time, VikingHolstein has a unique combination of high production with medium sized cows, making VikingHolstein bulls the best option for dairymen to use in their herds. They are smaller in size compared to other Holstein populations which means greater efficiency - less feed and high production.
 
VikingHolstein breed statistics for production for 305-days is something to be proud of. Average for production is 10,273 kg milk, 4.0% fat and 3.4% protein. VikingHolstein has an excellent level of udder health with a low average of clinical mastitis (11.7%). Clinical mastitis is the most common clinical disease in modern dairy business around the world.   

Interbull ratifyes the Nordic countries as world leaders for Yield, Udder health and Longevity for RDC bulls.

 
The Interbull list, based on national information about bulls’ performance, has placed the Nordic countries at the top of the list when it comes to production yield, udder health and longevity. This ranking is for Red Dairy Cattle (RDC) daughter-proven bulls born in 2011 or later.
 
According to the data, VikingRed bulls are the most profitable choice among Red Dairy Cattle in the world, not only because of their superior health but also their excellent production numbers which are at the top: VikingRed average for production (305-days) is 9,091 kg milk, 4.40% fat and 3.51% protein.
 
Besides, VikingRed cows have outstanding udder health with only 7% of clinical mastitis in average for VikingRed cows in Sweden, Finland and Denmark. 

VikingJersey is leading Interbull list for Udder health, Longevity and Daughter fertility

 
The data compiled by Interbull shows the excellent genetic level for Jersey bulls from Denmark. Udder Health, Fertility, Longevity and Yield for daughter-proven bulls born in 2011 or later, were compared with other Jersey population showing that VikingJersey is the best option to breed healthy and productive jersey cows.
 
VikingJersey average for production (305-days) is 6,984 kg milk (701 kg solids), 5.90% fat and 4.14% protein. VikingJersey is at the top of the Jersey population when it comes to udder health with average 14.4% of clinical mastitis for VikingJersey cows in Denmark.
