“The crossbred cows are doing better than the Holsteins; they have better fertility traits, their hooves and legs are also very good, and we have the feeling the cows will be more durable, because their general health is really good.”
The ProCROSS adventure started in 2011 at Skråmered Farm. Here, the 100% ProCROSS herd is now one of the most efficient in Sweden and has been ranked N°1 for yield in the area of Halland and number 3 across whole Sweden.
“They have really good reproduction. We don’t see much difference in milk production
between our Holsteins and the ProCROSS cows but the crossbreds stay in the herd longer.
About 80% of our herd are ProCROSS and 20% are Holsteins right now.”
