ProFitPlus in Germany: “The Program for Healthy Cows”

“The Program for Healthy Cows”: That is how the ProFitPlus program is described on the websites of the German AIs RinderAllianz (RA) and Rinderzucht Berlin Brandenburg (RBB). For more specific background, experiences and results on this unique project, HI spoke with Jan Körte, Head of Breeding at RA.

This resulted three years ago in indexes that are much appreciated in the field.
