CRV Efficiency

Product benefits

  • A higher longevity
  • A higher production per cow per day
  • A higher feed efficiency

You want to perform better with your existing herd? Now breed the best herd with the breeding indices CRVEfficiency, because an efficient herd means a higher lifetime production with less feed.



CRV Efficiency is a breeding value to breed for efficient cows:

– That have a high production
– That are durable
– That convert feed efficiently into milk

Environmentally friendly, durable and very cost effective. CRV Efficiency indicates how much of the absorbed energy is converted into milk in the entire life of the cow. In the calculation especially milk production, longevity and feed intake (improved) play an important role, but also the breeding values persistency, maturity, calving interval and calving age heifers are taken into account. The higher the percentage, the more efficient the daughters of a bull convert feed into milk.


Cows with 10% CRV Efficiency will produce 10% more milk out the same amount of feed!
