With appropriate management, the milk yield is comparable to that of pure dairy breeds, whereby care is taken to maintain the good meat yield.
Special attention is paid to fitness characteristics, fertility, length of life, calving process, calf vitality, cell count and persistence. Equally important are the exterior and udder characteristics. A high proportion of young cattle is calved, which has a positive effect on health and longevity.
Fleckvieh animals are characterised by a stable foundation. The annual milk yield increases until the 5th lactation. A distinctive feature of the breed is the top performance in udder health with an average cell count of less than 180,000 cells over all lactations.
The cheerful, male calves are excellently suited for successful cattle fattening and are an important additional income for the specialised milk producer. Slaughter cows reach a slaughter weight of 350 - 450 kg and show medium fattening and best marbling.
