April’s index run shows CRV’s progress in breeding for efficient cows with great longevity. Wobbler, Remmel, Perfekt and Windsor are impressive bulls for Fleckvieh breeders wanting to use the full potential of their farms’ production capacity.
Wobbler (Watnox x Mandela, 135 TMI) firmly holds his strong position in the rankings, thanks to his very productive daughters. His breeding value for milk production now amounts to +1,067 kg, with a score of +8% for Better Life Efficiency. Wobbler breeds cows with mid-sized frames, very good feet and legs (109) and fine udders (107). Scoring +6% for Better Life Health, with great scores for longevity (116), udder health (109) and calving ease (119), Wobblers’ daughters are a pleasure to milk.
A new daughter proven bull is Remmel (Ricki x Rumgo, 128 TMI). His daughters produce lots of milk (+1176 kg) with great efficiency (+6%). They are strong cows with excellent udders (129) and good udder health (105). Remmel carries the FH2 genetic defect and should therefore not be mated with cows that are also FH2-carriers.
Pandora son Perfekt and outcross Windsor boost efficiency
Perfekt (Pandora x Hutera, 130 TMI) is another bull that transmits great milk production (+1135 kg), very high longevity (116) and excellent production efficiency (+8%). The daughters of Perfekt will have excellent udders (122) and feet and legs (119). He also gives healthy (+4%) cows with great udder health (113).
Windsor PS (Werther PS x Hutera, 127 TMI) is an outcross bull without Mungo Pp and Irola PS blood in his family. He inherits very good milk production +(+800 kg), high milk solids (+0.02% fat and +0.04% protein) and great efficiency (+7%). Windsor’s daughters will have excellent feet and legs (117) and very good udders (109).
