Holstein Friesian Genetic Leaders Superior Female programme is a joint contract mating scheme between Holstein Friesian New Zealand and CRV to ensure the best genetics, within New Zealand’s own pedigree Holstein Friesian population, are sourced and made available to the dairy industry. The scheme complements the Holstein Friesian Genetic Leaders Male programme.
The Holstein Friesian Genetic Leaders Superior Female Programme will offer freedom of choice to the Holstein Friesian New Zealand membership, along with the ability to look at genomic information for high merit females in their herd. CRV will genotype around 150 heifers annually for the Programme.
All resulting progeny will be considered by the HFNZ/CRV Sire Proving Committee.
