CRV’s progressive American breeding programme produces several FeedExcel bulls that help farmers to increase the feed efficiency of their herd.
Peak Mecanico (AltaKevlow x AltaZazzle) is an excellent example of that. He transmits 755 lbs of milk with +0.31% fat and +0.13% protein and combines this with 112 feed efficiency and 7.0 productive life, resulting in +21% CRV Efficiency. At the same time, Mecanico has a good score for health traits, with 1.1 daughter pregnancy rate (DPR). With these proofs, he is an ideal bull for inclusion in CRV’s FeedExcel
breeding strategy. Mecanico is an index topper with 1,235 gNM$ and 3,109 gTPI. In Scandinavia, Mecanico is the number 1 in the total index gNTM. This top-quality bull is now available through the Create programme.
With 3,143 points,
Ladys-Manor Holysmk Oak (Holysmokes x Granite) is the latest complete top-ranked TPI bull in CRV’s range. He scores 1,065 gNM$, transmits 973 lbs of milk with +0.30% fat and +0.13% protein. Oak sires have good conformation with 1.53 PTAT with great udders (2.11 PTA udder) and good feet and legs (1.05). This new young winner is a FeedExcel
bull and is available through the Create programme. He is not eligible for export to the European Union.
The InSire bull Ladys-Manor Overthere (Drive x Granite) is also a FeedExcel bull. He transmits 153 lbs of fat plus protein, 5.7 productive life and 108 feed efficiency. Overthere sires good daughter fertility (1.2 DPR) and udder health (105). His TPI score is 3,056 and 1,056 NM$.
The young bull Aurora Tyrol (Parfect x Eisaku) is a top conformation sire with 2.28 PTAT. His daughters will grow to be strong, well-developed cows with a lot of body depth and strength. He improves feet and legs (1.55 PTA F&L) and udders (1.63 PTA Udder) and also has a positive score for teat length. Tyrol's daughters will be fertile (1.3 DPR), with a long productive life (5.7 Productive Life). He scores 3,094 points TPI and 956 NM$. Tyrol is available exclusively through the Create programme.
Shawarma, nice and stable
With his daughters,
Peak Shawarma (Milktime x Jedi), is proving to be a stable factor in CRV’s US range. He now has 451 daughters from 103 farms in his breeding value, bringing him to 2,677 points TPI and 744 NM$. Shawarma sires 2,285 lbs of milk and 120 lbs of fat, plus protein with a low cell count (2.68 SCC). His daughters are strong, well-developed cows with slope rumps, and strong attached udders with good teat placement. As a young bull, Shawarma is frequently used in Italy and the Czech Republic and the performance of his daughters prove that farmers in these countries have made an excellent choice.
