One fifth of Finnish beef is from beef-breed animals. The most common breeds are the Aberdeen Angus, Charolais, Hereford, Limousin and Simmental breeds of livestock, as well as crosses between these breeds. Cross-breeds are used to ensure optimal properties for the animals and, ultimately, for the meat. The PIHVIKOLMIO model developed by the AtriaNauta (AtriaCattle) service combines the best features of different breeds. The objective is to increase the vitality of animals, produce high-quality beef carcasses and improve the profitability of the entire beef chain. AtriaNauta actively monitors the competitiveness of animal material and the import of animal material in collaboration with Animal Health (ETT).
