More than half of all the Semen we distribute throughout New Zealand is from our own breeding programme. This programme selects the best available OutCross sires, selected for what they can contribute to New Zealand’s needs and mated to what we consider the finest cow families in New Zealand.
However we do source a range of Global Genetics for a range of different customers and below are links to the main Genetic Providers that we use.
K.I. Kampen is a Dutch genetic association established 33 years ago by farmers. At first its aim was to create a breeding program only for the original Frisian breed. In time also other breeds like MRIJ and Holstein were introduced in the K.I. Kampen breeding program. The company mainly is aimed at durability as a result of high lifetime productions and protein. Later secondary traits like udderhealth and fertility had our attention in the young bull selection. These traits will become more and more important in the years to come. K.I. Kampen’s selection criteria have been the same for 33 years now.
