That was the Saturday …
On Saturday, they first went to the Hohenzell insemination station, where the guests could admire bulls up close and in all their glory. In addition to numerous genomic young bulls, among which were a large number of natural hornless sires, well-known daughter-tested stars were also presented. High-calibre top sires such as the current No. 1 of the hornless breed WIRBELWIND P*S, the hereditary multi-talents MEDIAN and SUPERBOY as well as the best daughter-tested representative of the horror line WOMBAT, thrilled the spectators.
Afterwards the international guests split up: one part visited the fully automated, modern Fleckvieh breeding farm Gruber in St. Georgen am Walde, the second part the Fleckvieh Pure Beef breeding farm Kreil in Weng im Innkreis.
After a dinner with grilled beef delicacies, the National Fleckvieh Show was opened. The country representatives entered with their flags and were greeted euphorically. About 1,500 guests from more than 30 nations followed the programme in the Raiffeisen Animal Arena with great interest: the offspring presentations of the Austrian top sires GS WOIWODE, WEISSENSEE and GS DER BESTE, the young breeders’ competition, the final of the 2nd FleckScore World Cup and the elite championship.
