  • According to the Meat Animal Research Center, Gelbvieh is the only breed that reduced mature cow size in its germplasm study between 1973 and 2004.
  • Crossbreeding with Gelbvieh results in cows that are 30% more productive over their lifetime due to increased fertility , weaning weights, and cow longevity. MARC data shows crossbred cows stay in the herd an average of 1.9 years longer, reducing replacement cost.
  • In the most recent MARC evaluation, Gelbvieh sired calves had the lowest birth weights of the four major continentals and tied for the top survivability to weaning of all breeds.
