National Fleckvieh Exhibition 06/04/2013

New issues such as efficient production, climate and ecological efficiency will be at the focus of future breeding programs. Dairy and beef production are undergoing a change and the experiences show: Fleckvieh is not a compromise, it is a fantastic solution!
Meet Hans Kerkhof, a crossbreeding specialist in the Dairy business. He will present his experiences as well as hard facts from a Fleckvieh crossbreeding trial with the University Wageningen.

Hear from Natalya Mandrykina how heifers imported from Austria are adapting on large Russian farms, in theundquot;coldundquot; regions, and learn about the unexpected managments systems employed there.

Peter Massmann, a world-renowned Fleckvieh pioneer, over decades probably developed the most successful Fleckvieh cattle breeding program in Africa. He was also intensively involved in the establishment of the Simmental-Fleckvieh World Federation and organiser of the first, plus two other world congresses. He knows exactly how the ideal suckler beef Fleckvieh should look.

Fascinating Colombia-Daniel Espinosa Garces’ emphasis is on dual purpose Fleckvieh. Colombia is our partner country for this show and also host of the Fleckvieh/Simmental World Congress 2014 in Bogota.

Last but not least, our experts Christa Egger-Danner and Hermann Schwarzenbacher are going to present data from our brand new genome-based FLECKVIEH AUSTRIA breeding program and talk about both conventional and surprising perspectives of the new selection tools. Illustrative examples with real bulls will also be available.
