THE FLECKVIEH BREED

For those that don’t already know, to a large degree, Fleckvieh is a dairy version of the Simmental breed.

Since 1830, original Simmentaler cattle from Switzerland were imported to the Bavarian Kingdom and to Austria to improve the local dual-purpose breeds.

At these times, the Simmental cattle were famous for their milk production and drought capacity but were late maturing with little depth and coarse bones.

 

It has been proved in independent trials and by breeders, that Fleckvieh is the most suitable outcross for:-

  • Improved fertility, 365 – day calving interval.
  • Ease of management, better metobolism, maintaining body condition during lactaction.
  • Reducing vet bills.
  • Fewer ‘downer’ cows.
  • Less foot treatments.
  • Better feet and legs.
  • Improved udder health, less antibiotics and less spoiled milk.
  • Higher quality milk, (good butter fat and protein).
  • Low cell count.
  • Calving ease, less veterinary assistance.
  • Longer productive life – more lactations, fewer replacements therefore more stock for sale.
  • Higher cull cow value – can equal replacement value.
  • More valuable male calf – can be 4 times the value of pure dairy calf.

ABOUT FLECKVIEH

The Fleckvieh is a breed of dual-purpose cattle suitable for both milk and meat production. It originated in Central Europe in the 19th century from cross-breeding of local stock with Simmental cattle imported from Switzerland.

The Fleckvieh originated in the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Bavaria from cross-breeding of local stock with Simmental cattle imported from Switzerland from about 1830.

The Simmental had good milk-producing and draught qualities, and the resulting crosses were triple-purpose animals with milk, meat, and draught capabilities. The Fleckvieh is now a dual-purpose breed; it may be used for the production of beef or milk, or be crossed with dairy breeds or with beef breeds.
