A cow with high milk production
August 29th, 2011
<< back


Fleckvieh is a hardy breed that can resist diseases, eats less and produces more high quality milk.



Kenyan dairy farmers are used to the common exotic breeds of dairy cows such as the Holstein-Fresians, Ayrshire, Guernsey or even Jerseys. For two years now, a new cattle breed has attracted the attention of Kenyan dairy farmers: Fleckvieh is a high yielding, dual-purpose cow that can be used for both dairy and beef production. Kenyan farmers who have discovered the qualities of this breed have introduced them into their herds. So far, more than 20,000 farmers in Kenya have adopted the breed.


Years of selective breeding


Fleckvieh (or Miling Simmental) is the second largest dairy breed in the world – and one of Europe’s oldest. At the moment, there are an estimated 42 million cattle with Fleckvieh bloodlines worldwide. Developed in the highlands of Germany, Switzerland and Austria, the breed became popular in most parts of the world because of their adaptability to harsh climatic conditions.


Through many years of selective breeding, Fleckvieh has acquired some of the characteristics that dairy farmers are looking for. The Fleckvieh breed was introduced by Fleckvieh Genetics East Africa (FGEA) from South Africa in 2009.


The company gets most of its semen from top bulls in upper Bavarian region in Germany. Other sources of the Fleckvieh genetics are Austria, Czech republic, Australia. Farmers can buy semen from these top bulls from the company and cross with their dairy cows. This is the cheapest and easiest way to reduce the cost of buying pure Fleckvieh breed for small-scale farmers. Fleckvieh semen goes for between KSh 800 to KSh 400 depending on the sire (bull) a farmer chooses.


Active genetic potential


“The Fleckvieh cow is durable, hardy and easy to handle even within a small farm,” says Dr. Anthony Gichohi from Fleckvieh Genetics (EA). “They are able to move easily even in the most difficult terrain. A mature Fleckvieh has good strength and body development. A mature cow weighs about 650-800 kilograms. The breed has a very large and active genetic potential. We believe it is going to be one of the major breeds in the country once farmers discover its quality,” he says.


Nutritious milk and good meat


Studies show that every 1 kg of milk from a Fleckvieh cow contains 4.2% fat and 3.7% protein in addition the milk is also rich in other micronutrients and Omega 3 fats – which are vital for a healthy body. According to Dr Wanjohi, Fleckvieh bulls are fast growing and gain muscle at a rate of 1.5 kilogrammes per day for the first 200 days when cross-bred with other breeds, the farmer is assured of high quality of milk and beef. Under intensive fattening conditions, young bulls reach a daily weight gain of more than 1300 grams. In the first 6 months after birth, a bull can attain up to 300 kg with proper feeding and management.


Disease resistance


Compared with other breeds, Fleckvieh owners will not have to incur huge veterinary bills – due to the breed’s ability to withstand some of the common livestock diseases, mastitis for instance – This is an inflammation of the udder that cuts down milk production. The infection is caused by somatic cells (dead cells) from the bloodstreams that get into the milk in the udder. Fleckvieh cow milk has lower numbers of somatic cells compared to other dairy breeds, meaning that Fleckvieh is less prone to mastitis; there is another advantage: Less somatic cells means: The milk lasts longer without refrigeration.


And, since Fleckvieh has a very thick skin, it is more resistant against diseases transmitted by ticks and tsetse flies- the proboscis of these vectors cannot penetrate the thick Fleckvieh skin.


An easy to handle cow


Farmers are usually more interested in the amount of milk a cow can produce. But what goes for Holstein-Fresian and other breeds, can as well be said of Fleckvieh: The amount of milk a cow produces depends directly on the feed it is given and the way it is kept. With sufficient and nutritious feed, a healthy cow can produce a lot of milk; if the feed is poor, the milk yield will be less. Farmers sometimes forget the relationship between the feed given and the milk output.


What makes Fleckvieh different from other breeds (Holstein Friesian, Ayrshire etc)? Fleckvieh cattle are economically productive: The breed has a more efficient feed conversion rate compared to other dairy cattle. Studies show that the breed can give more milk with the same amount of feed that is given to other breeds. For example, if a Friesian-Holstein dairy cow is given 60 kg of feed, the amount of milk it will produce is equal to what a Fleckvieh cow will produce with only 45 kg of same type of feed. With good management, Fleckvieh dairy cows have been proved to produce between 25-30 litres of milk per day. On second calving, it produces 30-35 litres, increasing this to between 30-40 litres after the third calving. The breed has a consistent milk production throughout the lactation period – this a big plus compared to other breeds. It produces milk steadily for 305 days a year without any decline. The breed has been known to produce up to 10,000 litres of milk in every lactation (milking period) with good management.

      Birjit, have you gone crazy and not aware about the type of milk these non-Indian cows produce?
      Indian breeds produce A2 type milk which is healthy. Non-Indian breeds produce A1 type which is not healthy to be consumed. In India this awareness is growing very rapidly.
      If you are looking for high milking breeds then go for Gir or Thrparker or Shahiwal etc..
      Learn what Brazil has been doing using these Indian breeds.
      Wake up!!!

    I would like to get a fresian cow which can produce 25lts per day, has given birth once and its incalf for over 5 months. Next is a fleckvich breed with the same qualifications.

  124. Wamwiri says:

    Am just starting dairy farming but started with two low yielding cows. I definitely need to serve them with the MAGIC Fleckvieh! as they are about to be served again. Am even more interested in producing heifers for sale to local farmers as I have seen no Fleckvieh around here. Do you have a training centre/Manuals for this? How much are served heifers going for?

  125. Barasa says:

    my low yielding cow is due to be served again next month and i intend to serve it with the fleckvieh AI breed, pls advise from where i can be served as i reside in busia township of Busia county. i would also like to buy heifer of fleckvieh but i dont know where to buy it from and at approximately how much.

    I have been a small dairy farmer for sometime. I am convinced that this breed is the best for my region Siaya after an inspiring talk from Dr. Antony Gichohi. Please stock the semen within this region and be assured many farmers will be glad to use it. Tell us the price and we shall come for it immediately.

  127. Fred Obola says:

    I need a heifer, what is the cost? where can i view them and how soon are they available.

  128. Greetings farmers!

    This is awonmderful breed!Am surprised that the giant Kenya in terms of farming lacks this bred. We in Uganda we look at you as our saviours on any breed. How come not fleck?

    You have the capacity to import them enmass. Rwanda did it and i bought three young bulls from them.

    I would like to be educated on its difference from simmentals.
    Who could be having simmentals in kenya and at what priceis is the in calf heifer? how about matig bull?

  129. Rose says:

    I would like to buy Flechvieh heifer – please help with place and price.
