The entire world is feeling the impact of coronavirus. Beef and dairy farmers are also confronted with the effects every day, but continue to play their part in maintaining the continuity of food supplies worldwide.
We are immensely proud of these heroes! It is also business as usual for semen production and breeding value estimation. New, reliable breeding values that not only confirm the quality of daughter proven bulls but also reveal the promise of young bulls. Together with farmers, we like to work in harmony to create healthy and efficient herds.
CRV aims to contribute to a future-proof and sustainable dairy sector by helping farmers to breed healthy and efficient cows. In this index run, CRV presents many bulls with the ability to transmit these traits to their progeny. The results are a better life for the animals, added value for the farmers and respect for our environment. We are proud of our bulls, but above all proud of all farmers!
