Dairy cow breeding can increase profits up to $1,078 per dairy cow

A data-driven breeding program can help you achieve your farm business goals

Staying profitable despite base milk prices, an aging workforce or investing in environmentally friendly dairy farming without profit loss… dairy cow breeding can address both today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

But it’s not easy to select and implement the right genetic strategies. Do you need to optimize milk component ratio to attain premium prices? Strive for better cattle feed efficiency to lower feed costs and greenhouse gas emissions? Improve the longevity of your herd to increase life-time production? Invest in polled genetics, or good hoof and udder health? Improve on milking-robot efficiency?

Dairy cow breeding has a big impact on profitability and sustainability, especially on large dairy farms. We have seen that the right strategic decisions in dairy herd management and dairy cow breeding can increase your farm’s profits with up to $1,078,- per cow over 3 lactations.

Discover the potential for a more profitable herd

There are three things crucial for designing and applying an optimal breeding program. Information on your farm’s business goals, your herd’s performance and your herd’s genetic potential. To determine and recommend the right dairy herd management and reproductive practices, CRV experts thus start with a conversation about farm goals, a performance benchmark and genomic tests. After they get access to the genetic information of your cows and heifers, CRV experts know exactly how to select the right breeding goals, how to breed towards them, and how to calculate and monitor your return on investment.
