As a conformation sire, this young bull has also had great success. 'He breeds shallow udders which are ideal for robot milking. The teats have an average length and are positioned squarely at both front and back,’ Johannes demonstrates. M3 P also breeds top udder health with a very low cell count. 'With these qualities, it's not surprising that he is used as a sire internationally in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Italy and France,' says the breeding technician.
M3 P has very quickly become one of the most popular Fleckvieh bulls at CRV. And with good reason. 'Like his father, this early Mercedes P son has an excellent all-round profile,' says Johannes Wolf from CRV Germany. The Fleckvieh product manager mentions the high components inheritance and excellent longevity traits of M3 P, with which he scores very well on both CRV Health and CRV Efficiency.
'M3 P originates from a renowned Fleckvieh family from which several bulls have already had a good AI career,'
Renowned cattle family
'M3 P originates from a renowned Fleckvieh family from which several bulls have already had a good AI career,' says Johannes. For example, his mother Princess (s. Equador) has regularly been flushed and several of her sons are used for breeding. The great grandmother of M3 P was also a popular bull mother, with a current lifetime production of nearly 52,000 kg of milk with 5.15% fat and 3.85% protein.
M3 P is a heterozygous hornless and he inherits the A2A2 variant of the beta-casein protein. His aAa code is 435. He is also suitable for (Fleckvieh) flushing.
