The Dutch Holstein herdbook (CRV)

The Dutch Holstein herdbook is one of the main activities of CRV. CRV-herdbook has about 22.000 members in the Netherlands. Over one million male and female calves are registered in the herdbook every year. CRV  specialises in data collection, breeding value estimation, management support and automation in the field of cattle improvement and herd management. CRV is a farmers co-operative with 23.000 members in Holland and 7.000 members in Flanders, Belgium. The CRV database contains information on 5 million living animals and 30 million dead or foreign animals.
Internationally, CRV cooperates with ICAR, EHRC, WHFF, Interbull and fellow herdbook organisations. The CRV database also contains information about herdbook registrations, milk recording, AI, ET and type classification. The collection of the raw data is done primarily by CRV Holding and a number of  contract organisations.
