RZ - Breeding values for better health
Since 1876 the German Holstein breeder associations are known for quality and innovation. The German relative breeding values are considered international standard. For the first time, German breeding organizations for the Holstein and Red Holstein cattle bring into use direct genomic health breeding values. According to these new relative genomic breeding values sires can be pointed out that inherit their resilience to their offspring. Animal health within the herd can be improved rapidly, effectively and accurately without missing performance. The German Federal Association of Cattle and Pigs (Bundesverband Rind und Schwein e.V.) informs about the new breeding values with new information flyers in different languages. You can download the flyers here.
