With the April 2023 proof run, CRV introduces FeedExcel. This brand represents the proven breeding strategy for developing a herd that produces higher milk yields, requires less feed, achieves higher profitability and has lower emissions.
In a world of rising costs, stricter regulations and resource scarcity, farmers are under increasing pressure to feed a growing global population and do so sustainably. As an industry leader in livestock management and genetics, CRV continues to develop innovative ways to help farmers achieve these goals.
Proven path to higher margins and lower emissions
CRV FeedExcel ensures a highly productive herd that delivers more milk with less feed. These designated bulls are the progressive and reliable approach to breeding cows who efficiently convert feed into milk, fat and protein. The result: a feed efficient herd with higher margins and lower methane emissions.
Supported by verifiable data, CRV offers producers a breeding strategy promising a highly productive herd producing up to 25% more milk or consuming up to 25% less feed and along with a decrease of 25% in methane emissions by 2050.
High CRV standard for CRV Health and CRV Efficiency
“FeedExcel bulls have a high breeding value for feed efficiency,” says Gert-Jan van den Bosch, sales development specialist genetics at CRV.
Certified FeedExcel bulls don’t simply excel in feed efficiency. “After all, cows with a high feed efficiency that produce little milk or who stop producing at an earlier age are of no use to livestock farmers,” states Van den Bosch. “FeedExcel designated bulls therefore also guarantee a high standard for CRV Health and CRV Efficiency. In short, cows that achieve high lifetime production without any problems,” Van den Bosch further explains.
