At Humlegaarden we breed harmonious animals with a strong topline and a well-developed rump and frame. We aim for big animals with strong legs and great beef value.
The two most important characteristics in our breeding programme are temper and polledness.
We have selected temper throughout the years, which is why, all our animals are used to being handled with a halter and attending cattle shows. Furthermore we have a strong focus on genetics. More than half of our stock is polled. When an animal is polled we always use a horned bull to make sure that no traits are lost. A strong selection ensures that our stock consists of only the very best animals.
Some may say that the odds are tough, but we must admit that being big is the easiest way for a cow to stay at Humlegaarden.
We have started to pay more close attention to index, as this is something Danes care about. This is for sales purpose only. In addition to this we have all our cows and junior bulls potential elected. This allows us to compare results with the Breeding Station Aalestrup.
