Coopex Montbeliarde - A Unique Selection Program
Future A.I. sires are selected long before their birth, when the bull dams are themselves selected and mated with chosen sires. Each year, over 360 bull calves enter the testing station. Almost half of them will be eliminated before progeny testing according to their results in growth, feed conversion, morphology, male fertility, quality of frozen semen, and updated breeding values of their parents. Montbeliarde breeding values are published 3 times a year, with a change of index base once a year.

Production traits include milk and milk solids. Type traits include udder, body, rump, feet and legs, body condition. Productive Life, or Longevity, is calculated according to other traits and includes milking speed, calving ease (sire service calving ease and daughter calving ease), and temperament.
