CRV bulls: new stars and proven chart toppers

CRV aims to contribute to a future-proof and sustainable dairy sector by helping farmers to breed healthy and efficient cows. In this index run, CRV presents many bulls with the ability to transmit these traits to their progeny. The results are a better life for the animals, added value for the farmers and respect for our environment. We are proud of our bulls, but above all proud of all farmers! 
All-round profile with positive bonuses for fat and protein
Barnkamper Majestic (s. Simba) offers a wonderful production profile (1295 kg) combined with good health traits…

Average lifetime production per cow leaps by more than 1200 kg

A huge leap forward in the lifetime production achieved by cows at culling has been revealed in the 2018-2019 financial year. Compared with the previous financial year, lifetime production has increased by 1210 kg of milk and 96 kg of fat and protein. This is the first time that such a significant difference has been shown in two consecutive financial years. At culling, Dutch cows now note lifetime production that averages 31,553 kg of milk, with 1371 kg of fat and 1120 kg of protein. A combination of a longer productive life and higher milk production is behind this i…

CRV bulls accomplish excellent lifetime production with high components

A healthy and efficient herd stands at the base of an excellent lifetime production. Genetic progression is the key, and consistent breeding brings results. CRV offers you an extensive sire selection for improving your herd with an excellent lifetime production and high components.
Daughter proven sires confirm predictions
During the most recent NRM, a quite youthful and promising group of Finder was presented by CRV. This August proof run adds another 500 daughters to his proof data, giving Bouw Finder a near total of 750 daughters. Raising his Feet & Leg score …

These are the groups at the NRM 2019

CRV will show three progeny groups and two theme groups at NRM 2019. These groups show that we stand for efficient and healthy herds with high components. Read more information below about the Fun P, Bouw Finder and Bouw Rocky progeny groups and the Delta Satellite and “Proven cows with high components” theme groups.
DELTA FUN P
We will show a group of second calvers and heifers from the red-and-white bull Delta Fun P. The Fun P daughters are very productive and can easily cope with their high production, which makes them very efficient. Fun P is currently the highes…

DELTA DONORS SMASH 100,000 KG MILK BARRIER

category Article, Genetics

Genomic tests help us discover a lot of information about the genetic merit of cattle at a young age. The current batch of bull dams and the other Delta donors at the Dairy Breeding Center do not have any recorded performances yet, but will prove their worth when they are older. A couple of great examples of successful cows are evidence that CRV’s breeding programme aimed at high lifetime production is certainly paying off.

Thanks to genomic selection we already know as much about the genetic value of a young calf as about a cow with three lactations. CRV therefore …
