The April 2018 index run shows that the new NVI calculations, which are a better fit with the wishes of Dutch and Flemish cattle farmers, have impacted favourably on the rankings of CRV bulls. Many bulls boast outstanding production figures, with the high components currently in great demand.
Delta Treasure (Finder x G-force, 443 NVI) tops the list of black-and-white bulls. He transmits phenomenal longevity (+1248 days). His daughters will be highly productive (+1166kg) yet require little feed for maintenance (saving on feed costs € 31 per lactation). These credenti…read more ›

On the first day of the NRM (All Holland Dairy Show) the six formidable CRV daughter groups and one theme group paraded in the ring to a full house. Many visitors to the NRM saw the animals ‘in person’ on our stand on day two.

At the NRM, it was debut time for a daughter group of heifers by Vitesse. He already has almost 1…
CRV making rapid progress in health and efficiency improvement
The index run of April 2017 illustrates the rapid progress CRV is making in breeding bulls that boost herd efficiency and health. In the black-and-white segment, Danno, Esperanto and Empire are causing a stir. Rody is an impressive rising star in the red-and-whites and many daughters of former InSire Top bulls are producing their first milk.
Breeding efficient and healthy cows is a goal that perfectly reflects an age in which farmers aim to optimally utilise their farms’ production capacity using animal…read more ›
