The Norwegian Red breed is known for superior health and fitness traits. Females tend to have less difficulty calving, breed back easily and are medium-sized, trouble-free cows that work well in commercial dairies. All of these attributes can aid in making a dairy more profitable. ABS recommends a three-breed rotational crossbreeding program involving the Holstein, Jersey and Norwegian Red breeds.

In extensive research, Norwegian Red sires have added profitability to crossbreeding programs with:

  • Improved Fertility
  • Increased Survival
  • Improved Mastitis Resistance
  • Improved Resistance to Other Diseases
  • Improved Percentages of Fat and Protein
