The Hammond family from Ohakune completed their new dairy conversion last year and this month sees the first home bred calves hit the ground. Because of the high altitude and the need for stronger compact cows, British Friesians featured strongly in last springs bull selection.
The herd was mated using the colour coding system to achieve a more uniform line of animals. Needless to say, British Friesians will be included in the mix again this year.
