All New Zealand sires offer exceptional fertility and longevity. Because of the New Zealand market reimbursement based on milk solids rather than liquid milk as in the U.S., New Zealand sires have high fat and protein percentages. N.Z sires have been bred to produce cows that thrive in pasture-based systems for decades.
