What is CRV Efficiency?
With the best bulls for CRV Efficiency, you will breed a herd that is more productive, has higher longevity and higher feed efficiency. The result is a more efficient herd, resulting in a lower impact on the environment.
How can CRV Efficiency improve your herd?
For many farmers, efficient production takes priority over maximum production. Efficiency means needing fewer raw materials (feed, chemical fertilizers) per kg of milk. This is better for the environment – and better for their bottom line too. Efficient production also means working with healthy animals with high longevity, particularly on dairy farms.
