"We are excited to cooperate with VikingGenetics - a trustworthy partner who has an established position in the international market," explains Anna Adamczuk, Sales Director at P.H. KONRAD in Poland.

At the same time, VG shares its expertise derived from experience as a major global player in the field of bovine genetics."
Last week export manager HC Hansen and sire analyst Kenneth Byskov visited satisfied KONRAD customers in Poland. One of the farms is Adam Pontus in Prejtowo. He runs a cross breeding herd with 700 cows producing 9,500 kg milk 4.1% fat & 3,4% protein. Adam Pontus is 100% customer by P.H. KONRAD and very happy with the results of Viking sires. "We have noticed a significant improvement of fertility proven by only 1.3 inseminations per pregnancy by the heifers and 1.9 inseminations by the cows. Also calving ease and health of the Viking cows are outstanding meaning a better and easier work day for me and my employees". Adam prefers the red color and therefore uses both Red Holstein and VikingRed in the cross breeding program. The current milk price is 0, 38 €/kg and bull calves are sold at 7 days for 3,50 €/kg.
