VikingBeef August 2021 Proofs

Here are the August proof run most interesting beef sires for VikingBeef


* VB Picasso - Danish Blue 

* VB Orakkel - Danish Blue 

* VB Redbuck - Angus

VB Picasso

This Danish Blue Bull has been very popular as a young sire, due to his promising pedigree with Golden as sire and Tornado as grandsire. And VB Picasso has not disappointed us.

He has 106 in Calving ease index and 105 in calf survival. He does not yet have his full NBDI due to his young age, so we will have to look forward to that. VB Picasso is a very good semen producer and is available with both conventional and sexed semen.

He is bred in Denmark by Britta Pedersen and was born in 2019.

VB Orakkel

This Danish Blue Bull has all the qualities you're looking for in a beef on dairy bull. An easy calving index of 105 across all breeds with a reliability of 80 percent.

A growth index for the long growth period of 120 and a total NBDI long of 25. This makes VB Orakkel an absolute top bull for beef on dairy. He is bred in Denmark by Britta Pedersen and was born in 2018.

VB Redbuck

VB Redbuck is a red Angus with impressing results from the Swedish bull test station Gunnarp and also with remarkable pedigree indices. Being a young sire, he doesn't have any crossbreeding indices yet, but he's used for beef on dairy and will have NBDI as soon as he has enough progeny to be evaluated.

For pure breeding, he has an index for Calving direct of 107 and 135 in Daily gain. Also 129 for Carcass conformation. VB Redbuck produces excellent semen and is available with conventional and sexed semen.

He's bred by Åbuens Lantbruk AB in Sweden and born in January 2020.
