PANEL DISCUSSION ON CROSSBREEDING
Day 1, February 12th, 11 a.m.
Topic: A.I. and breeding

Each dairy breed is known for its unique characteristics. A few forward-thinkers are learning how to pull together the best from each breed to create the type of cow they prefer, regardless of color. Discover how crossbreeding is changing today’s dairy cattle.

Following an update on the state of crossbreeding research, a panel of participants will take questions from moderator Walt Cooley and from the audience. Invited panel participants include:

Jake DeRadt, Dairyman, LeMoore, California

DeRadt’s 1,000-cow dairy is 10 percent purebred Jersey, 62 percent Holstein, of which some are registered, and 28 percent crossbreds. The dairy has been crossbreeding Holsteins and Jerseys for more than 20 years and using European breeds for 10-plus years.

Jack Hoekstra, Dairyman, Oakdale, California

Hoekstra has been crossbreeding for 13 years. His herd of 1,550 cows is comprised of three-way rotational crosses between the Holstein, Montbeliarde and Swedish Red breeds. In the past, he has also crossbred with Normandy and Brown Swiss genetics.

Les Hansen, Professor of Animal Science
cross breeding dairy cattle research

The majority of Dr. Hansen’s research at this time focuses on the comparison of pure Holsteins versus crossbreds. The documented decline of health, fertility, and survival of pure Holsteins has resulted in tremendous global interest in crossbreeding of dairy cattle.

"For the first time, a progeny group from a renowned Montbeliarde sire (REDON) was shown outside France at a National Show. This was at the All-Holland Dairy Show in Zwolle last friday 29th of June. This group of REDON out of Holstein dams was very professionally presented by Koole&Liebregts Team, showing the growing interest in Holland for Montbeliarde crossbreeding on Holstein cows.

REDON with 21.688 dtrs is by far #1 second crop sire in France with 158 ISU. minu.me/6lq6
Redon consistent daughters have the ideal balance of production, health traits and type rolled into one package.

In Holland, with 548 daughters, REDON has a NVI of 120 (april 2012 proof)
In the USA, with 305 daughters, REDON has a Lifetime Net Merit Dollar of 486 $NM (april 2012 proof)"

with economics. The results show significant improvement on fertility, survival
and profit when crossbreeding with Montbeliarde and Swedish Red.
