- Strong and resilient cows
- Crossing that suits you
- Maximum heterosis effect
Do you want a higher milk production in your herd? Or do you want more longevity or better hoof health? Or perhaps both? Crossbreeding could be the perfect solution.
CRV has developed CrossFit, a tool that helps you make the best crossbreeding decision for your herd, breeding goals and set up.
What is CrossFit?
Each race within CrossFit has its unique advantages. By combining breeds that suit you, you anchor specific breed characteristics and the heterosis effect is the added benefit.
CrossFit has two directions:
With CrossFit Health, health and convenience are the starting points. You breed a healthy, fertile and self-reliant cow in good condition that calves quickly and can produce optimally under different conditions.
CrossFit Efficiency stands for compact cows that produce a lot, have a long lifespan and that convert the feed into fat and protein. This high-yielding and sustainable herd allows you to maximize business profitability.
Your area manager can advise you on the best crossing strategy.
Each breed its own characteristics
You can cross with the entire herd, or with a part of it. With one or more breeds and with a fixed crossing schedule, or a choice by determining per individual cow which breed and which bull fits best. Each breed has its own characteristics.
