VikingGoldenCross is a 3-breed rotational crossbreeding programme combining VikingHolstein, VikingJersey and VikingRed.
The combination of the three VikingGenetics breeds gives you:
- Healthy, fertile, ideally sized grazing cows that are easy to manage and equipped to walk long distances
- A +9% higher relative conception rate compared to two-way crossbred cows in a pasture-based production
- Higher fat and protein percentages and a higher lifetime production
- More body condition, better reproduction and beef value by adding VikingRed as the third breed
The benefits of three-way crossing have been demonstrated around the world, especially in New Zealand and Australia. Now, the VikingGoldenCross system will be launched in the UK.
Suitable for seasonal calving herds
The concept is especially suitable for seasonal calving herds. Based on decades of data collection and a focus on breeding for health and performance, VikingGoldenCross is your accurate and structured crossbreeding solution.
