ABS Italia recently conducted a tour for a small group of potential customers and sales representatives, highlighting ABS genetics and services in progressive dairies. The tour was an all day event, held on February 14, 2012 in the Northeastern part of Italy (Veneto region). This tour provided potential customers the opportunity to see GMS® and RMS® in action.
Roughly 25 breeders participated in this event and they each had the opportunity to see GMS® results, ABS bull progeny, and learn how RMS® works.
AZ. AGR. CA’FILZA di Filippi Cesare e Michele was the first herd visited of the day. This herd consists of roughly 300 head of Holstein cattle. Currently, this herd has an RHA of 10,200kg 3.72%fat and 3.38%protein, with a daily production of 32.5 kgs. The cows are housed in freestalls and milked in a double-10 herringbone parlor. This herd has been on RMS and GMS since 2007 and they are starting to see the power of the ABS bull lineup as well as the incredible value of the services available through ABS Italia.
AZ. AGR. NUTRIFARM srl was the second dairy on the agenda, and is owned by Pegoraro Valter. NUTRIFARM has been on RMS, GMS and using the Valiant® Uddercare product since 2006. NUTRIFARM has 288 Holsteins, which are milked in a double-10 herringbone parlor, and housed in free stalls. This dairy has an RHA of 10,000 kgs 3.68%fat 3.30%protein and 31.5kg daily milk production average.
AZ. AGR. ORFEO di Codogno Stefano was the final farm visited of the day. This dairy has 175 Holstein cows and has been on GMS, RMS, and using the Valiant® Uddercare product since 2006.
