If you are focusing on high net merit, high production of milk solids, fertility, health and superior udders, then you should definitely have to look at the new VikingJersey top bull, VJ Chief. 

VJ Chief is among the VikingJersey breed leaders for production of solids. Breeding value for kg fat is 116 and 113 for kg of protein. VJ Chief has positive breeding values for Female Fertility (105), Udder Health (108), General Health (108) and Longevity (107) and he is a breed leader for Udder conformation (123).

VJ Chief breeds nice open ripped daughters, a little taller than average. Udders are extremely well attached, both in front and at rear. Ligament is very strong, and udders are very shallow (120). Placement and thickness of teats are ideal.
The dam of VJ Chief is “Haugstedgaard Hilario Caroline” classified as VG87. 

Average of two lactations is: 7,625 kg milk with 6.01% fat and 4.34% protein
VJ Chief is our first son of VJ Choko. VJ Choko (gNTM +17) is a VJ Lobo son out of an VJ Havdal daughter. VJ Chief is an outcross to all North American pedigrees.

Are you looking for the ideal combination of health, fertility and super udder profile in an outcross bull? Then go for VJ Lando!

The dam was flushed several times in the VikingEmbryo project, resulting in three sires for the VikingJersey breeding programme. Apart from VJ Lando and VJ Laster (gNTM +25), there is also the VJ Hodja son, VJ Honda (gNTM +24).
