Breeding of dairy cows on pasture


KB Mitteilungen 28(2): 12-16
Breeding of dairy cows on pasture
A summary of cattle breeding in New Zealand is given. In 1989 there were 13 800 dairy farms with a total cattle population of 2.2 million dairy cows (av. herd size 160). Most purebred animals were of the Holstein, Jersey and Ayrshire breeds, but Jersey X Holstein crossbreds were also common. Breeding was seasonal, with all cows calving within a 6- to 8-wk period around mid-Aug. Animals were inseminated 6-7 wk after calving, 90% of inseminations being with fresh semen.
