Increased tolerance to FE challenges results in healthier cows and improved production.
- Less stress
- Improved animal welfare
- Save disbudding expense
CRV offers a team of local and overseas homozygous polled bulls. Homozygous (PP) polled bulls guarantee the birth of polled calves, meaning the progeny of polled bulls will not need disbudding. This saves time and expense and improves animal welfare with less stress on the calf.
When a bull has two copies of the polled gene (i.e. homozygous) you are guaranteed the bulls progeny will all be polled, because all of them will get one copy of the polled gene. Conversely, bulls with only one copy of the polled gene (i.e. heterozygous) does not guarantee polled progeny, but there is a 50% chance of progeny being polled.
