The best new VikingJersey sires

VJ Juke

gNTM +23

(VJ Jake x VJ Hodja x VJ Libero)

If sustainability and profitability play a part in your breeding program, look at the new VikingJersey top bull: VJ Juke.

VJ Juke breeds healthy, fertile, long-living cows with very high milk and solids production. He is among the breed leaders for udder health, longevity, and hoof health.

His daughters will be of average stature, with very steep foot angels and very well-attached, shallow udders.

With VJ Juke, you get cows with:

  • High milk solids production
  • Exceptional udder health, attachment, and support
  • Excellent hoof health and steep foot angle

VJ Juke is a son of VJ Jake, who was used very little, so VJ Juke will be an outcross to most other pedigrees. He comes from the herd of Tommy Flöjt in Finland. His dam scored VG 88; her average 305-day production in 2 lactations is 8,200 kg milk with 5.56% fat and 4.54% protein.
