Re: 5%fat -the genetics(finished)


If your completed lactation figures are on a feeding regime of pastures and supplementary meal (concentrates)as we are here, they would be the envy of all my clients. We have the odd herd average of up to 8000kgs on our pasture systems and quite a few in the 7000 to 75000kg range, but you are very competitive on total kgs fat and protein produced.

thought I'd pull this up so all the cross breeders out there can see that there are holstein bloodlines with high butterfat %

Fox i know this is a few years old but those percentages at 6500lt ave is about what i would expect.

Is your production still similar now or has it gone up.

i have no doubt people can top these figures but i just pulled up last months herd test figures and there were are handful of animals at 40lt with almost 6% fat. This is on grass and grain in the dairy.

So i agree you can get high test with Holsteins without crossbreeding. But it will probably be higher if you do, depending on the breed.

I think i saw you are on a liquid milk contract. Is that right? Are you still breeding for components, they seemed to have dropped a little over the last few years?
