Are you looking to improve the production level of milk and solids in your dairy herd? VikingGenetics' breeding programmes for all breeds emphasise improving production without compromising the cow’s health and reproduction performance.
Production for a dairy cow is one of its most important traits, if not the most important. Without the capability to produce a sufficient amount of milk, the cow is not supporting a sustainable and profitable dairy business.
That is why the Production index has the highest weighting in the Nordic Total Merit index (NTM) and corresponds to 32%, 34% and 33% for VikingHolstein, VikingRed and VikingJersey respectively.
The Production index is based on reliable data, with 95% of commercial dairy herds in Denmark, Sweden and Finland recording milk production.
