VR Tokyo – The absolute No. 1 bull in Australia

The best production sire with outstanding levels of fat and protein 
 
VR Tokyo (VR Tuomi x V Foske x A Sale ET) is leading the Balanced Performance Index (BPI) in Australia with a BPI of $298, according to April proofs. There is no doubt: this sire is one of a kind and a “must have” in a herd to increase the production of milk and its solids. 
“We are always looking forward to create value for the farmers. And what we are saying regarding the performance of a bull is actually what the farmer gets. If the dairymen make profits paid by solids then we have the best bulls to suit that need”, Rex A. Clausager, CEO from VikingGenetics comments. 

With the Nordic Total Merit of NTM +22, VR Tokyo combines a high level of production (119) with strong components with 119 for Fat Kg and 119 for Protein Kg.

We can add that VikingRed Tokyo has also a remarkable health profile.

VR Tokyo’s breeder is Göran Carlsson from Linköping, Sweden. VR Tokyo has almost 1,500 daughters around the whole world, in ongoing production. 

VR Tokyo is a top performer with a complete profile where production, type and health combine to make daughters with no weaknesses.
