Breeding+ Section 1 Improving through breeding

Published 2 July 12

The Breeding+ programme is your key to raising your herd's profitability through a strategic approach to breeding your cows.

Breeding has been responsible for a large proportion of progress made by UK dairy herds since the 1970s in increasing milk production levels. Improvements made through breeding are far less obvious than those achieved by changes in either feeding or management.
