Welcome to North Dakota Gelbvieh Association
Gelbvieh and Balancer genetics are well known throughout the beef industry for their maternal strengths and superior growth. With attributes such as more pounds of calf weaned, added fertility, greater cow herd longevity and heavier carcass weights, Gelbvieh and Balancer offer genetics that work for the commercial cattle business.
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.
Females that stay in the herd longer are by far the most profitable.
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.
