Breeding+ Section 7 Making the most of specialist strategies

Published 2 July 12

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

The vast majority of UK dairy herds have the full resources of the worldwide Holstein Friesian breed at their disposal; in 2008 93% of the UK dairy population was Holstein bred.

If you prefer other dairy breeds, however, you may have to adapt your improvement strategy to make the most of more restricted gene-pools and a more limited choice of proven AI sires.
