The international beef industry must adapt to ever going challanges, strive
to become more finacially effient, reduce their carbon hoofprint,
simultaniously maintaining and protecting our enviroment, animal welfare
and promoting biodiversity. We at StongBo Simmental wish to produce
extremely effient, easy calving, easy fleshing polled simmental bulls and
heifers to benefit all aspects of the industry and the environment.
Efficency breeds profit.
Our breeding goals are listed below in order of preference:
||StrongBo Simmentals wish to produce quality purebred
simmentals with no horns.
Homozygous Polled (PP) – all off-spring are without
horns This is preferred.
Heterozygous Polled (P) – half the offspring (to horned
cow) are horned
||Simmental/Flechvieh cattle are generally a very docile
breed when interacting with people on a working farm
||Calving ease is esscential to reduce stress on calving
dams, reduce possility of calf mortality, reduce stress
and labour of farmers during calving season
||Cows must have adequate milk to promote calf growth to
||Offspring must have high average daily gain (ADG) to
drive overall effeicancy
|High Eurostar-Index –
||All simmentals generally have good Replacement Indexes
but the aim is to have high terminal index as well
