Orcival confirms high expectations at “All Holland dairy show”
On the 27th and 28th of June the “All Holland Dairy show” took place in Utrecht,
The Netherlands. On Friday the 27th, several AI organizations showed their progeny
groups. Genes Diffusion showed a progeny group of Orcival (Mattie G x Esquimau).
About 13.000 visitors saw a group of 6 second lactation daughters of Orcival, of
which 2 were selected for the individual contest on Saturday.
At the Dutch Genes Diffusion show “Met dank
aan de Koe” last October 2007 in Hardenberg, ORCIVAL already showed a group of 8 very uniform milking
heifers. At the “All Holland Dairy show” the ORCIVAL daughters showed how these dairy, strong and youthful
cows have matured into secondcalvers who still develop and increase their dairy
strength. It catches the eye that the cows have tremendous width in especially their
rump and body, also the capacity in their frame is huge. But most of all the ORCIVAL daughters showed their walking trademark: their
feet and legs. The daughters of ORCIVAL move around without effort, which means they easily
come to the fodder gate to eat, are in the front of the milking parlour and don’t
hesitate to show their heat. In other words: they are thé perfect cubicle cows.
the stand of Genes Diffusion, where the 6 daughters were presented during the 2
days, was visited very well. After the first presentation of ORCIVAL daughters in Hardenberg last year, the sequel in
Utrecht was also very successful and resulted in a lot of very positive comments.
