Once again B+LNZ Genetics are calling for sire nominations for both the Dairy Beef Progeny Test and the Beef Progeny Test. As you would have seen breeds (including NZ Herefords) are using the results of these tests to promote their own breed above others.

It's for this reason that NZ Herefords strongly back the progeny tests and are offering to pay the succesful nominatoin fee of $1250 and reimburse cost of semen collection (only for the amount of semen required for the test), from the bulls which have been selected into the Dairy Beef Progeny test. 

No fee is required for the Beef Progeny test, however NZ Herefords are offering financial assistance to collect the amount of  semen required for the beef progeny test.  Please contact Posy at  manager@herefords.co.nz if you have any queries.
Call for Dairy Beef Progeny Test Sires
B+LNZ Genetics and co-funders LIC, are calling for sire nominations for the 2022 mating of the B+LNZ Genetics Dairy Beef Progeny Test at Pāmu’s Wairakei Estate Renown Farm.

This project aims to improve the quality of dairy beef calves in the industry by identifying and enabling widespread use of superior bulls for dairy beef. Top bulls can be used in AB programmes in the dairy industry and in breeding programmes to generate good bulls for use over dairy cows.

Nomination fee to the value of $1250 will be reimubrsed by NZ Herefords, if Option 1 is selected (assitance for semen collection can be requested to NZ Herefords)

Call for Beef Progeny Test Sires

B+LNZ Genetics are inviting breeders to nominate bulls for the 2022 mating of their across-breed Beef Progeny Test at Pāmu’s Kepler farm, Te Anau, and a new North Island site – Rimanui Farms’ Lochinver Station, Rangitaiki Plains.

This Progeny Test will be fundamental to a multi-breed evaluation by providing both linkage between breeds and New Zealand collected data to be able to accurately estimate hybrid vigour. With the addition of the North Island site, nominations will be open to Angus, Hereford and Simmental bulls.

Cattle will be Artificially Inseminated in December 2022 (Kepler) and January 2023 (Lochinver). Angus and Hereford bulls will be used across both breeds of cows. Simmental bulls will be used across Angus cows at the Lochinver site.

Nomination - FREE (assitance for semen collection can be requested to NZ Herefords)
