We provide science-based bovine genetic products and solutions for progressive dairy and beef producers around the world.

Our passion is to help you as a farmer achieve your business goals, farm sustainably, and enjoy life.

Breeding for health and performance

In the Nordic countries, we have recorded the health and performance of VikingHolstein, VikingRed, VikingJersey, crossbreeds, and other breeds.

Farmers, veterinarians, hoof trimmers, and other industry experts have been committed to registering the performance of each cow.

This effort has improved the health, reproduction, milk production, feed efficiency, and longevity for all our breeds.

Today, we record over 800,000 cows annually in our Nordic data system, the most complete total merit index in the world.

More than 90 percent of the cows are part of the health and milk data recording.

Our Nordic data system gives you 90 traits of economic importance to succeed in your dairy and beef business.

Achieve an effective, sustainable and profitable production

We constantly create new solutions to meet the challenges of you as a dairy and beef farmer. Our innovations are based on scientific data and facts with the purpose of improving your everyday life and business. Through healthier cows you can achieve effective, sustainable and profitable production.
