Lawwal, is a recently established stud based in the Waikato owned by K + MK Singh Farms whose family have a passion for breeding Holstein Friesian cows that they can trace back to Punjab, India.
The Spencer cow family is the centre of the stud’s breeding programme. Lawwal was lucky enough to fast track their breeding programme by purchasing cows from Pelorus Holsteins, based in the Rai Valley Nelson.
Lawwal’s current breeding uses mainly North American genetics with a small amount of New Zealand bred cows. Lawwal’s aim is to breed functional type, high producing cows. They have a strong focus on the environment and feeding cows to their potential, so house their cows in a 1000 cow free stall barn.
