Holstein EU cows are famous for the highest lifetime production in the world. Read more about our Dutch (red) Holstein programme.
In this system, your dairy cows produce high volumes of milk or solids based upon a carefully managed (mixed) ration whilst permanently housed. You aim for maximum feed efficiency resulting in a positive margin over feed and optimum cow health. You squeeze every ounce of genetic ability out of your genetics.
CRV is dedicated to support you in breeding and managing better cows. The CRV farming system navigator with its 5 step approach supports you in making a breeding plan that fits your specific farming system.
