Does a perfect balance between production and high components, with super health traits and appealing conformation sound interesting? If so, have a look at VH Declan.

His health traits are super with Hoof Health at 117 and General Health at 108 and Female Fertility is good at 110. He has the modern type of conformation. Super feet & legs (119) and good udders (110) and average frame at 102, being medium sized relates to a Saved Feed index at 102. Also, worth to highlight the milking speed at 115.

His dam is a high producing cow with average of 13,000 kg of milk and classified as VG87. His granddam is a fantastic VG89 G-Force daughter with average production at 15,700 kg milk.
