EDF (European Dairy Farmer) Henk Schoonvelde started crossbreeding 10 years ago. He is following a 3-way cross program with Norwegian Red (NRF) x Flechvieh x Holstein. Henk states that crossbreeding has brought back the pleasure of being a dairy farmer and improved financial results. He believes the greatest advantage of crossbreeding is resistance (more robust cows) and fertility. His calving interval is currently 380 days.
