- Healthy, robust and long-lasting
- High components
- Increase production from lactation to lactation
CRV’s Fleckvieh cows are popular among farmers because they are robust and long-lasting. Easy calving and a long productive life are, besides the high performance potential for milk and beef, the basis for efficient production.
Fleckvieh cows produce a high amount of milk with a lot of fat and protein. Very good conformation of udders and feet and legs together with the medium body size of the animals is ideal with respect to longevity and feed efficiency.
Crossbreeding with CRV Fleckvieh
Fleckvieh is ideally suited for crossbreeding with dairy and beef breeds. F1 Holstein x Fleckvieh calves show extreme strength and vitality, and heifers demonstrate excellent fertility. Due to the good milk production of Fleckvieh, fluid milk volume doesn’t drop as low as crossbreeding with other dairy breeds.
Fleckvieh can score particularly well as a breeding partner in regions or countries with a high proportion of dedicated breeds. Many dairy producers are fighting health problems in their herds and recognize that, given falling returns from milk, a supplementary income is required to keep their operations profitable. The experience gathered over several years from operations with rotational or upgrading crossbreeding programs have resulted in advantages due, in particular, to:
- Reduced mastitis and somatic cell counts
- Increased protein content in milk
- More body reserves, substance and muscling in dairy cows
- Improved fattening traits of calves (including higher returns for culled cows)
- Healthy cows with a good longevity
