2016 marks the 50th anniversary of World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin – a celebration of the journey from a small World Food Expo in 1967, to the internationally renowned show and exhibition of today. Geno, Norway’s cattle genetics cooperative, is also celebrating its record global sales of Norwegian Red genetics. Geno leads the world in exports of red dairy cattle semen with a 23% margin over other red dairy cattle breeds.
“We have seen the Norwegian Red breed grow in popularity year-on-year but with particularly rapid increases in the past three years,” says Geno managing director Sverre Bjørnstad. “Producers worldwide are looking for a consistent herd of well-balanced cows that are strong, healthy, reliable and with excellent milk production. I am sure that is why we are seeing the Norwegian Red breed outselling other breeds for crossbreeding programs.”
