"We are an intensive grazing herd located in Eastern Texas. We milk 1,500 cows and also raise 1,200 replacement heifers. Our cows graze 10 months of the year on 450 acres. The production average for our ProCROSS herd is 64 pounds of milk with 4.1% fat and 3.3% protein."
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.
The herd was designated the most productive organic herd in the Halland area (western Sweden) in 2019. Performance results include 647kg more milk and +0.1% higher fat from the ProCROSS than from the farm’s Holstein cows.
“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.”
