VikingBeef Proofs November 2021

Here we present two VikingBeef bulls suitable for beef on dairy. They have very good NBDI (Nordic Beef on Dairy Index) values. When beef bulls are used on Dairy cows, the most important trait is Calving ease, then comes Calf viability and then the Growth potential. Both selected sires here are very popular for use on dairy cows due to their good genetic traits.

VB Onero

VB Onero is a Charolais, and even if we don’t have any slaughter data of his offspring yet, he has been widely used for beef on dairy. He has Calving ease of 103 and a Calf survival of 101, and the calves look very promising.

VB Onero is available as both conventional and Y-Vik sexed semen.

He was bred in Sweden by Sven-Olof Hägg.
