Positive Effects of CRV’s FeedExcel
High quality genetics for highly feed efficient cows
CRV FeedExcel is backed by years of cooperation with farmers, leading developments in science and the largest feed-intake dataset in the world based on real feed intakes from lactating cows on commercial dairy farms.
Dairy farmer Wietse Duursma is owner of a farm with 300 dairy cows and 150 young animals. He has seen the positive effects of CRV’s FeedExcel program on his farm firsthand. The Vroege family are the owners of a dairy of 1,100 cows. These are two of the five commercial farms where CRV monitors the feed intake and milk production of individual cows with feed bins.
