The new year has brought a new look to the New Zealand genetics market. Genetics Australia – NZ, formally Genetic Enterprises, has released their 2020 New Zealand Dairy Sire Catalogue and it contains a range of genetic products that provide solutions to your genetic problems.

Genetics Australia has been working for over 60 years to develop a grazing dairy cow that produces well from pasture but can also respond when challenged with additional feed. Genetics Australia have incorporated the best genetics from around the world into their breeding program in order to capture a wide cross-section of bloodlines and traits and the bulls are then evaluated using the well-respected Australian Breeding Values system (ABV).
