Looking over New Zealand paddocks, chances are you will spot a Holstein-Friesian. Making up over 30% of the National Herd, these slightly taller in stature, bigger framed cows are known to producing large amounts of milk solids when optimally fed. Holstein Friesians top out any other breed in terms of high production when conditions are favourable.
Three Way Crossbreeding with a Holstein over another breed will bring up good production and create an animal suitable for beef production.
