If your main breeding goal is high production combined with good udders, milking speed and udder health, then VR Vesty will be a bull that can do substantial improvements in your herd. 

VR Vesty gives a superior production (128) with higher fat and protein content and at the same time increases kg of milk. 

His profile is characterized by good production, great Udder confirmation (117), Milking speed (115) and at the same time good udder health. His daughter will also be good in maternal calving, hoof health, and longevity. He is also a great bull to use on heifers. 

The daughters after VR Vesty will have:

  • Parallel rear legs
  • Super back udders 
  • Larger teats

When the breeder to VR Vesty started to test all the heifers in the herd, they found two great heifers that got flush contracts from VikingGenetics. 

One of them was the grand dam to VR Vesty. She was flushed twice, and it resulted in VR Vesty dam and bull VR Wild. VR Wild is now a proven sire with NTM +23. The dam to VR Vesty was also flushed twice, which gave VR Vesty and three heifers that got flush contracts from VikingGenetics. 

The great grand dam has also sold a bull to VikingGenetics.

The dam is milking at the beginning of the third lactation and has on average over 2.3 years given 12,525 kg milk with 1,060 kg dry matter. In the second lactation, she was classified 87-88-83-87. The grand dam is in her fourth lactation. In the second lactation of 305 days, she gave 947 kg dry matter with 3.74 % protein and 4.86 % fat. She was classified 90-81-91-90.     

The breeder is Nita and Jakob Gade, Denmark.
