VR Fitbit P
gNTM +28
(VR Flake x VR Grimsby X Yllyke)

One of the very best VikingRed sires is again a polled sire. VR Fitbit P gives you good yield combined with VikingDefence™ profile. He is suitable for robot milking being also a good combination of moderate size and nice conformation.

The dam of VR Fitbit was born at Iskola and is producing there now as well. She was also in embryo production in the nucleus herd. VR Fitbit is a result of an OPU-embryo. The dam is a cow with nice udder and fine feet and legs. The MGD is still in production with her best 305 day yield of over 12,600 kg milk.

The breeders are Jukka and Venla Hentilä, Finland.

VR Vilperi
gNTM +32
(VR Viljar x VR Hambo x Ullimulli)

Here we have for you a perfect sire with no weaknesses. VR Vilperi gives you good yield at the same time with good female fertility. Udder health combined with fast milking speed is one of his strengths. He is also very strong in conformation traits; great feet and legs, and tremendous udder.

The dam Lontoo is an ET – calf born in and returned to Luke research herd after a period of flushings in the nucleus. She is a second-generation nucleus herd cow out of an Ullimulli daughter Rajaojan Imelda. This is a high yielding cow family with very high components. 

The breeder is Luke research herd, Finland.

Kappa Casein: AB Beta Casein: A2A2
VR Selfie
gNTM +25
(VR Sivari x VR Vimpula x VR Tuomi)

If you are looking for an easy calving sire, VR Selfie is your choice. He has the VikingDefence™ profile being very good in all health traits. He inherits moderate size with very good feet and legs as well as udder conformation.

The dam is a very fertile cow: She is pregnant with her third calf and has only been inseminated three times in her life. She has a calving interval of 11 months and was 22.9 months when calving for the first time. Even though she was young when having her first calf she produced almost 11,000 kg milk during her first lactation. 

GMGD produced in the herd for more than five years and had an average of 11,500 kg milk. Her classification was body 86, F&L 83 and udder 88. 

The breeder is Ingvar Andreasson, Sweden.
