Pinzgau pure breeding

Jochberger Hummeln

Pure breeding is exclusively used as a breeding method, meaning that since 1987 we have been breeding hornless cattle. Our herd is 95% hornless.

Calves stay with their mothers for 8 to 10 months. On average, the calves gain 1000 - 1300g in weight every day. We select some heifers and calves for own holding, while the rest are sold for breeding or for meat.
