Innovative Cattle Breeding

In the Nordic countries, we have the healthiest cows with the highest milk production, and the lowest use of antibiotics and hormones in the world. Our latest challenge is to lead the dairy industry in finding solutions to lower methane emissions in cattle breeding. 

    


Pioneers in breeding for health

VikingGenetics has always been a pioneer in cattle breeding. We have always placed health in a balanced focus with production traits in our breeding programmes for all our breeds. We have known that breeding for health is possible since the 1980's, when others didn't. Our breeding is based on extensive, real-life data from the Nordic dairy farmers.

Invisible cows at work


The perfect cow is easy-going, productive, healthy and fertile. The type of cow that will last long in the herd and don’t require too much of attention thanks to successful breeding with excellent genetic material, and optimal management. VikingGenetics’ cows might be invisible, but their impact to your profitability surely isn’t. 


Nordic cows are naturally healthy without the use of unnecessary antibiotics and hormones. In the Nordics we have the lowest usage of antibiotics in the world for dairy cattle. With our genetics, farmers can build-up their herd’s natural defence against diseases without a hassle by choosing VikingGenetics’ sires. 


It is easy and simple as that.
