Breeding for health and performance In the Nordic countries, we have recorded the health and performance of VikingHolstein, VikingRed, VikingJersey, crossbreeds, and other breeds. 2 Farmers, veterinarians, hoof trimmers, and other industry experts have been committed to registering the performance of each cow. This effort has improved the health, reproduction, milk production, feed efficiency, and longevity for all our breeds. Today, we record over 800,000 cows annually in our Nordic data system, the most complete total merit index in the world. More than 90 percent of the cows are part of the health and milk data recording. Our Nordic data system gives you 90 traits of economic importance to succeed in your dairy and beef business.
