CRV Feed efficiency

Improve your profitability by breeding with Feed Efficiency. Cows that produce more milk using less feed could help dairy farmers around the world combat rising feed costs, which show no sign of easing. Breeding towards better feed efficiency gives you higher revenues. In addition, efficient utilisation of feed also has a positive impact on the environment as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the use of scarce resources.

HerdOptimizer Go

HerdOptimizer Go uses a genomic test to reveal the genetic potential of your female animals. The outcome consists of breeding values based on the Dutch system for over 50 traits related to milk production, health, practice proven feed efficiency scores and conformation. This will give you a reliable prediction of the performance of the animals in the future. CRV also provides unique CRV breeding indicators for health and efficiency.

CRV, leading in health and efficiency

CRV Health

A healthy herd makes work more pleasurable and profitable. The CRV Health index improves fertility and udder and hoof health. This has the advantage of making herd management easier and reducing the number of cows that require treatment.
