Farming

Our company looks back on 30 years of successful Fleckvieh breeding.
Today we can offer for sale genetically hornless herdbook animals which have been selected according to strict criteria:

• Easy calving

• Cheerfulness

• Correct foundations

• Quiet being

• Good udders

We breed with a hornless suckler cow herd of the best pedigrees with more than 100 heads. Every year we breed four genetically hornless bulls with bloodlines of the best meat sires from the dual-purpose population.
