With both established names and promising young bulls, the range of Aubrac bulls for the IA AURIVA-Elevage offers you ever greater diversity in pedigree and profile.
At the service of today’s and tomorrow’s breeders, our selection program gives you access to benchmark bulls for maternal qualities, high-performance weaning sires confirmed by their evaluation on progeny, as well as the most interesting young bulls from the latest breeding station series.
Their common denominator: hardiness and breed qualities!
A growing hornless range, Aubrac Milk program, bulls available in sexed semen… this wide choice of complementary bulls will enable you to fully implement your breeding and reproduction strategy.
In short, the quality and reliability of our program will deliver the very best in Aubrac genetics.

The Aubrac insemination bull selection program is based on a partnership between OS Aubrac and AURIVA-Elevage. With two key stages, evaluation at the La Borie breeding station and on-farm IBOVAL progeny evaluation, the selection program provides breeders with top-quality bulls. In this way, they have access to a wide range of broodstock that are vectors of genetic progress in line with breed objectives.
The polled gene introgression program at AURIVA-Elevage for the Aubrac breed began with the marketing of AI doses for the OTTO EFB bull. SPIROU PP (RRC) is now listed in the catalog and available exclusively as sexed female semen, producing 100% hornless offspring.
No more dehorning constraints with SPIROU PP (RRC) products. Homozygous, he has the POLLED gene on both alleles (shown opposite as P and P). 100% of products express the hornless phenotype. The products of SPIROU PP (RRC) will be heterozygous. They will be hornless, but will carry the recessive horned maternal allele. Re-mated with horned animals, they will produce 50% heterozygous offspring that are also hornless.

YPERIOS guarantees efficient, safe and long-lasting crossbreeding!
talks to us about his use of YPERIOS crossbreeding on suckler cows, his strategy for using sexed semen for renewal and how he maximizes his income with YPERIOS 95 and YPERIOS Excellence crossbreeding.
Originating from the basin of the same name, the Aubrac, the hardy cow par excellence, is not only identifiable thanks to its racial characteristics (color, head, black eyes, lyre-shaped horns, black tips…) but also capable of adapting to the harshest climatic conditions in any territory.
Its good legs, sturdiness and ability to make the most of a more than moderate diet make it a breed that is becoming increasingly popular not only in France, but also abroad.
A suckler cow with undeniable maternal qualities, the Aubrac is renowned for its calves’ growth on their mother’s milk and short calving interval. Great docility, great autonomy, very simple feeding thanks to good ingestion capacity, good longevity make this a pleasant cow, easy to raise and profitable.
A true symbol and pride of an entire region, Aubrac is also recognized for its high quality and aptitude for all types of meat production.
