Holstein dairy cattle population









Linked profile in other language
Svetlana Gracheva
The Scientific and Practical Center for Animal Husbandry offers consumers a population of Holstein dairy cattle of Belarusian selection under a manufactoring agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
A Holstein population of dairy cattle of Belarusian selection has been created, constituting 50% of all dairy cattle bred, the number is 960 thousand heads; indicators of milk productivity: milk yield - 5047 kg, fat content in milk - 3.68%, protein - 3.20%. Animals are distinguished by higher milk productivity, pronounced milky body type, good reproductive qualities and efficient use in industrial technology.
Advantages and Innovations
In terms of average milk yield, it surpasses the cows of the entire black-and-white population of the Republic of Belarus by 506 kg. The degree of realization of the genetic potential of the Holstein population ranges from 75 to 90%.
Stage of development
Already on the market
Comments regarding stage of development
Herds of dairy cattle of the Holstein population are bred in breeding enterprises, basic and breeding farms for breeding Holstein cattle of the State Association "Belplemzhivobedinenie".
