On the 11th of June the first edition of the CRV Event took place. In the IJsselhallen in Zwolle many farmers saw good daughter groups, the winner of the ‘best herd of the Netherlands’ and the best ‘Young herdmanager of the year’.
The herd of family Winter in Vriezenveen has been chosen as the ‘best herd of the Netherlands’. They have a healthy herd with cows that produce much milk in a very efficient way. Their focus is on longevity, having old cows is very important for the family Winter.
A very special moment was the homage of Big Boukje 192 from the family Knoef. This 18-year old cow already produced more than 200.000 kg of milk. When she came in the ring, she and the family Knoef got a standing ovation by the public.
Next to these special moments, also 10 daughter groups were showed: Alonso, Browning, Passe, G-Force, Cherokee, Atlantic, Snowfever, a MRIJ group, a Fleckvieh group and a high lifetime production group. In the coming weeks these daughter groups will be discussed on our website.
