The core principal of our Fleckvieh genetics in North America – supplier Bayern Gentik – summarized by Germany`s CEO Dr. Grupp; he states that the use of the most heterogeneous breed of cattle in the world – Fleckvieh – can reduce the actual number of animals required in farms in general since it serves as a milk and meat producing animal. The Fleckvieh breed is truly utilitarian and socially responsible at the same time.

The annual publication called Fleckvieh world (at www.bayerngenetik.de) goes into detail on the recently established (2018) Type breeding value for Fleckvieh:
From www.bayerngenetik.de and CEO Dr. Thomas Grupp:
“Our breeding philosophy is based on breeding a powerful, vital, harmonious cow without extremes, which meets with 100% consumer acceptance, guarantees the best quality in milk and meat and is used in all production systems practiced worldwide, i.e. from subsistence farming to intensive TMR farms. Our company supplies the appropriate genetics for this purpose.
With the development of a type breeding value in 2018, Bayern-Genetik has created an instrument for not only maintaining but also strengthening and further developing the optimum dual-use characteristics of the Fleckvieh breed. The breeding goals for both bulls and cows are clearly defined in Bayern-Genetik and are part of our own breeding philosophy.”
