Breeding is a highly valuable long term activity, offering the potential for cumulative and consistent gain, and improvements in areas that will surprise you.
Breeding is something that people who get involved get very passionate about. We think that comes from the sense of achievement in producing quality cows and in understanding the critical role they play in your farm business.
CRV Ambreed believes the cow needed in the future should be healthy, productive and efficient, live longer and be easy to get in calf.
We also understand we need to make your breeding decision to be easy. We’ve put together 4 steps to breeding the herd you’ll love to milk.

CRV PROGENY TEST PROGRAMME
By taking part in CRV Ambreed’s progeny test programme you can develop and enhance your herd using tomorrow’s elite genetics today.
New Zealand dairy farmers have been working with CRV Ambreed for over 30 years to develop generations of daughter proven sires.
The elite Holstein Friesian, Crossbred and Jersey bull calves selected for CRV Ambreed’s progeny test programme ultimately ensure dairy farmers’ herds are competitive and continue to be more productive and more profitable in the future.
CRV Ambreed invites you to be part of a select group of farmers who are helping develop the next generation of elite dairy sires.
Nominated genetics gives you unlimited choice from our best sires to meet your individual goals for your herd.
