LIC Holstein-Friesians have been proven in a number of international trials to be more fertile, produce better milk solids % and be all round more profitable than North American and European Holsteins.


Selected LIC Holstein-Friesians can:

  • - Increase feed conversion efficiency
  • - Increased fertility
  • - Increase Milk-solids %
  • - Improve lifetime production through more lactations
  • - Provide strain vigour benefits when breed over Northern Hemisphere Holsteins
  • - Out perform any other breed as a third cross option due to maintaining genetic merit


LIC Holstein-Friesian data carries the % KiwiFriesian

‘The New Zealand Friesian’ is synonymous with two elements of successful dairying - fertility and longevity.

Today’s strain is the result of more than 100 years of selective pressure, applied by New Zealand farmers who needed cows for seasonal dairying, and their farm improvement company, LIC.

Ultimately you will benefit from a strain that blends the best dairy bloodlines in the world. A strain that many farmers, worldwide, believe to be the ideal dairy cow; quite rightly called ‘KiwiFriesian’.
