Holsteins  have  the  highest  milk  productions  in  the

world. They have an unequaled genetically anchored  achievement ability which has no biological ceiling.  Genetic improvements of 1 to 2 percent per year are totally realistic.


They constitute a guarantee for milk production that  yields a profit. Not only do they have the highest milk  production, compared to other breeds, but they also  the lowest feeding cost, which therefore results in a  better milk price. Owing to their physical capacity they  are able to ingest nutrients not fit for human consumption and convert them into milk with the help of enzymes. They represent the type that can  mobilize energy reserves for milk production when  shortages occur during times of high lactation requirements.
