Dairy Beef Specialty Breeds

ANGUS

Focus Whitlock 75.

Breed by Focus Genetics, this young Angus sire has the benefits of short gestation length (-8.9EBV, breedplan April), calving ease and strong growth traits that will appeal to beef finishers. He is a registered Angus and this qualifies him for use of the Angus X Dairy tags, endorsed by Angus New Zealand.

BELGIAN BLUE

Elk 41 Van de Plashoeve

Elk 41 has been selected from the Belgian Blue Groups Dairy Beef program for the bulls short gestation length and calving ease qualities. This Belgian blue also provides easily identifiable colour markings and the exceptional growth/ muscle development through the double muscling gene and fineness of bones, ultimately resulting in greater carcass yields.

CHAROLAIS

Kakahu Gerry PP

Gerry was accepted into the Beef and Lamb NZ Dairy Beef progeny test in 2017 and proved why he is an outstanding choice as a dairy beef sire. Gerry was number 1 for days to weaning 100kg calves, at 90 days. A proven low birth weight and easy calving Charolais bull with well above average carcass traits. Traits dairy farmers, calf rearers and finishers look for, with the added bonus of being homozygous polled.

HEREFORD

Fertabull Short Gestation Hereford FertaBull straws contain semen of three elite Hereford sires in each dose. This increases the length of time the semen is viable, giving you a greater chance of getting your cow in-calf. The three Hereford bulls have been carefully selected together with our partners Bluestone Herefords. They offer breed leading short gestation, calving ease and growth EBV’s. All three bulls are homozygous polled so no de-horning required.
