What questions do you have?

  • Give me the facts behind the claim “the Norwegian Red has the best fertility among dairy breeds?”
  • What is the average stature of the breed?
  • How are Norwegian Red crossbreds producing in the U.S. and elsewhere?
  • Incidence of mastitis and other diseases? (NOTE: direct selection against many diseases in this breed in Norway)
  • Can I pick bulls for hoof health? (NOTE: claw health index is available)
  • What are results of research of Norwegian Red crosses versus purebreds?
  • Want to know where to find a herd with lots of Norwegian Red crosses in it to visit?
  • Who is my ABS rep?
  • Any genomic-tested sire? Sexed semen available?…

All current or just-considering-it crossbreeders welcome! Find out how Norwegian Red sires can give you a winning second half in your dairy career. (Editor aside: Congratulations, Denver Broncos, winners of Super Bowl 50 for successful execution in the second half to pull off the win!!)
