Facial Eczema Tolerant Genetics

Product benefits

  • Greater tolerance against Facial Eczema
  • Healthier cows
  • Improved production

Genetic tolerance offers the best protection against Facial Eczema (FE).

The daughters of our FE-tolerant bulls are 25-30% less reactive to a facial eczema challenge than the average cow.

According to a recent study led by Veterinary Enterprises Group (VetEnt) Research, facial eczema could be costing dairy farmers more than $100,000 a year in lost milk production. Not only is the disease costly in dollar terms, but it is also devastating for animal health.

Exclusively from CRV, FE-tolerant sires used in your breeding programme are an environmentally-friendly and safe way to help increase your herd’s tolerance to FE challenges, resulting in healthier cows and improved production.

Cows resulting from our FE tolerant sires will typically have:

  • Improved tolerance to FE spores
  • Improved production
