VR Frit PP

gNTM +28

(VR Fuzzy P x VR Luke P x VR Hjusticia)

If your focus is to breed polled animals with high components, good udders, and good feet and legs, then VR Frit PP is the ideal choice. VR Frit PP is homozygotic polled, so all his offspring will be polled. 

His daughters have extremely high solids in the milk. They have good general health and have low use of feed. The daughters will be slightly below average in size with good feet and legs. They’ll have outstanding udders with a firm fore udder attachment, udder depth, front teats placement, strong udder ligament, and longer teats.  

Use VR Frit PP if you are breeding for:

  • Polled cattle
  • High fat and protein production
  • Improved feed efficiency

His dam was acquired for the VikingEmbryo programme. She was the second-best homozygotic polled heifer in the VikingRed population, and without VR Flake P in her pedigree. She was flushed four times. That resulted in three bulls: VR Frit PP, VR Fosu PP, and VR Fusan P. The dam has ended her first lactation and has produced 9,785 kg of milk with 4.13 % protein and 5.07 % fat. She is classified as 83-82-88-86.

VR Hunken

gNTM +29

(VR Hagi x VR Filur x VR Faabeli)

Are improved components, hoof health, longevity, temperament, feet and legs, and udder part of your breeding goal? Then VR Hunken is a bull that will make a difference in your herd. 

VR Hunken gives good production with high fat and protein content. He's a sire that passes on super hoof health and longevity. The daughters will be smaller than average in size. They'll have impressive feet and legs together with good udders, especially since the front udder attachment is excellent. The daughters are easy to work with since they are calm and have a fast milking speed.

VR Hunken will give you cows that have:

  • High components
  • Healthy hooves
  • Strong udders

The dam just started up her second lactation and in 1.5 years, on average, produced 850 kg of fat and protein. The grand dam is milking in the fifth lactation and has produced more than 40,000 kg of milk. Looking four generations back, all the cows have had protein percent over 4 %. It's clear that a good protein percentage runs in the family.

VR Bogar P

gNTM +23

(VR Babus P x VR Fonseca x Ullimulli)

Is your goal to get polled animals for robot milking that have low feed consumption? Then VR Bogar P is the ideal choice for you. 

VR Bogar P is heterozygous polled, so half of the offspring after him will be polled. The daughters will have low use of feed and super lactation persistency, meaning they'll milk evenly through the entire lactation. VR Bogar P gives good maternal calving and longevity

VR Bogar P's daughters are a good fit for robot milking. They will have good udders for the robot combined with fast milking speed and calm temperament. They have superior hoof health with remarkable feet and legs, creating a solid base for good locomotion. 

Expect this of your VR Bogar P daughters:

  • Polled offspring
  • Robot-suitable cows
  • Improved feed efficiency

The dam milked for three lactations and gave, on average, 11,500 kg of milk with 3.91 % protein and 4.61 % fat totaling 982 kg of solids.

Breeder: Anders and Pauline Johansson, Sweden.
