Increase in scores for maternal calving ease of K.I. SAMEN Belgian Blue bulls.
DINO van de GRAASHOOK makes his debut with his first, super scores. He shows high ease of calving which makes him an ideal Belgian Blue bull for beef on dairy use.
The scores of ELANCHER and ELTIN show further improvements, whereby ELTIN rises sharply despite just a slight increase in reliability. His scores are expected to improve further based data information from practice.
