CRV CONTINUES TO LEAD THE WAY IN EFFICIENCY
CRV continues to lead the way in genetics for a better bottom line. Efficiency is becoming increasingly important, as is milk that delivers to the current component driven market. As always, this December 2018, CRV releases a Holstein line-up that is strong in premium milk, health and efficiency. Feed remains the highest operational cost on a dairy farm and feed efficient cows therefore affect the bottom line considerably. Three highly heritable feed efficiency traits join the other 20 proprietary CRV traits for afaster route to a profitable and sustainable bottom line.
o 097HO42106 LUKAKU checks every box for every goal. He is a high-ranking genomic active bull for both GTPI (2829) and $NM (961). Daughters will be fertile with high production, and he is an excellent choice for the calving pen as well, with an SCE of 5.4. Lukaku will sire efficient cows with moderate size and great health traits.
