THE BELGIAN BLUE BREED
LEADER IN INDUSTRIAL CROSSBREEDING
Why choose the BB for industrial crossbreeding ?
- The breed passes on the double-muscle gene to the calf and thus improves the muscle characteristics.
- The bone fineness and birth weight which is not excessive (45 kg on average for the Holstein breed) enable easy calving.
Fewer than 4 % Caesareans, i.e. barely 1.5 % more than in the case of pure bred Holsteins.
