THERE’S A BETTER WAY... The sheer diversity of dairy farming operations in New Zealand is a testament to the ability and willingness of Kiwi farmers to find solutions that work for them. Using everything from traditional all-grass based systems, through to the latest robotic innovations allows our farmers to generate profit in their own way. Farmers know that ‘one size does NOT fit all’, and this is never more true than when selecting the type of cows they want to milk, and therefore the type of dairy sires they want to breed from.

The type of cow needed to handle high input high-performance per cow production systems is quite different to the easy-care low input animal highly desired by the larger dairy operations. Similarly, a cow that thrives in the heat of Northland is unlikely to be the same sort of cow that performs on the West Coast of the South Island. And just as Kiwi farmers’ needs are diverse so is CRV Ambreed’s sire line-up and the ways it can be used.

Team concept

Of course our farmers always have choice. They can choose the exact type of cow they want by choosing the exact type of dairy sire or sires they want to use. But when even that seems too arduous we can help there too! That is why CRV Ambreed developed its Team concept – designed to help you get to your goals faster with less fuss. Farmers new to working with CRV Ambreed are often surprised at how simple it can be to build and implement a successful breeding plan, and, once they see the results in the quality of the heifers entering their herd, will never go back to accepting average.

Beyond BW

Accepting average is not what we are about either! Increased production is a long-term goal for most farmers and success cannot be measured over just one or two lactations. CRV Ambreed recognises this and likes to think beyond BW, aiming to select sires that serve the farmer by breeding long-term producers. For this reason we select sires that are better than just a high index, and offer traits that will make sure your cows are in for the long-haul.

Genomics

CRV Ambreed has always taken a very robust and careful approach in how it applies genomic technology to its bull selection. With the backing and scientific resources of global company CRV, we have complete confidence in our portfolio of InSire bulls. And as it turns out, so do many of you, with semen sales of our young genomically selected (InSire) bulls growing by more than 10-fold in 2012! This is very exciting for us, as it means that CRV Ambreed clients are getting the very best genetic gain in their herds. CRV Ambreed remains at the forefront of dairy sire technology and product improvement in New Zealand, reinforced by the backing of global CRV, the world’s third-largest dairy genetics company. So for what you’re spending on your farming operation and breeding programme, and regardless of your goals or type of farming system you operate, why not expect the best?

Crossbreeding

Another exciting development for us in 2013 is the release of a very high quality team of crossbred bulls. CRV Ambreed has traditionally favoured crossbreeding in herds using purebred sires (rotational crossing) to maximise and maintain hybrid vigour, and therefore in the past we have not put a lot of resources into producing crossbred bulls. But genomics has now allowed us to catch up very quickly and increase our number of crossbred sires. But we won’t be producing crossbred bulls just for the sake of it either! Our investment into crossbred bulls is no different to that of our other breeds and is focussed around delivering an animal that addresses the needs of farmers, rather than just meeting a BW target. Much like genomics CRV Ambreed will continue to take a robust and careful approach to producing its Crossbred sires. Whilst our focus remains weighted towards the parent breeds (HolsteinFriesian and Jersey) we will be investing more into the crossbred market as its market share increases. In the meantime we are listening to your needs as to just what kind of crossbred sires farmers want. As a consequence of this many of our crossbred sires catalogued are either three-quarter Jersey or threequarter Friesian.

MY HERD | MY PLAN The scale and type of dairy operations in New Zealand have changed significantly over the past 20 years from the more uniform, all pastoral systems that were dairying’s foundation for so long. The days of a “one cow fits all” herd are long gone, and New Zealand farmers deserve the opportunity to choose the gains they want to make in their herd, taking account of important traits not recognised in the national breeding objective. Your system, situation and goals are unique, and only you know what these key factors are. Breeding cows to perform as you want them to is a long-term project. It will be three years before you see any results from a breeding plan, so planning and consistency are vitally important. Achieving valuable and consistent gains in key production and management traits takes time and focus. My Herd, My Plan from CRV Ambreed is a tool designed in conjunction with our geneticists to document your goals and keep your programme on track with your herd improving in the direction you want it to. In the course of developing this plan, you will have decided on how to use genetics to further your business goals. You can revisit this plan at any stage with your Field Consultant, and each year it will be reviewed and renewed to make sure you are comfortable with the overall direction of the Plan and to take advantage of new tools and genetics as they become available. My Herd, My Plan sets out your genetic gain objectives for your herd in a way that clearly suggests a course of action and then details the strategy agreed between you and your Field Consultant on how to achieve those gains. The plan will be added to in each breeding season so you can track progress from the previous season before choosing genetics for the coming season.

Your cows are the most productive asset you will ever own. My Herd, My Plan can help you use genetics to get the most from them.

SIREMATCH Tailor-made breeding advice

The three levels of SireMatch:

A key to successful breeding is the selection of the best bull for each cow, creating the best team of bulls for the herd. SireMatch is a powerful breeding support tool to get the most out of your herd. The programme can be specifically tailored to your herd by CRV’s experienced consultants helping you to produce the very best cows for your farming operation.

Prevent inbreeding & genetic defects

SireMatch will prevent inbreeding on your cows and will exclude matings that will pass on genetic defects, helping you to breed a good and profitable herd.

SIREMATCH PROTECT Easy to use report which excludes inbreeding

Your own breeding goals

Use predefined breeding goals for farming operations in New Zealand or develop your own breeding goals with the help of your CRV Consultant. Choose the sires you want to use yourself or allow SireMatch to select them for you to get the package of bulls best suited to your requirements. SireMatch will seek out the best sire-cow combination as it performs thousands of calculations to correct the weakness of the animals.

SIREMATCH SELECT Tailor-made report to reach your breeding goals

Easy to read reports

The SireMatch paper reports are easy to read and understand. SireMatch provides reports at the animal and herd level. Use your reports to compare cows within the herd, or across herds, to identify weaknesses and develop breeding goals.

WAGE WAR AGAINST FACIAL ECZEMA Developing Facial Eczema tolerant bulls is a major innovative solution for dairy farmers that CRV Ambreed is pretty proud to be a big part of. Utilising CRV’s genomic technology and working alongside national partners to create solutions specific to our dairy farmers is behind the release of our Facial Eczema Tolerant sires. Farmers can now breed FE-tolerance back into their herd alongside increasing the effectiveness of traditional protective methods. At last, genetics can play a part in the war against facial eczema too!

Facial Eczema in New Zealand

With nearly half the national dairy herd farmed in high risk Facial Eczema (FE) areas it is estimated this debilitating disease has a huge impact on the New Zealand dairy industry via loss in milk production and animal welfare issues. And the clinical cases you see are only the tip of the iceberg! For the past 30 years the sheep industry has successfully bred for tolerance via challenging young rams with

Sporidesmin, the active chemical in ingested FE spores. This produced sheep tolerant to doses 8-10 times greater than at the beginning of the breeding programme. Unfortunately in dairying it is quite the opposite, with AgResearch findings indicating today’s cow has become more susceptible to FE over the last 25 years.

The Development of Breeding FE-Tolerant Bulls

Hence for the last 10 years CRV Ambreed has collaborated with AgResearch and later DairyNZ exposing young sires from our Progeny Test (PT) programme to FE to identify those most tolerant and gain a better understanding of the genetics behind FE tolerance. In 2011 our first FE-tolerant bull team was released with estimates progeny would be as tolerant as the average 1985 cow! This genetic progress is designed to go hand-in-hand with existing FE prevention programmes. “FE-tolerant cattle will be an asset to farmers,” says CRV Genetic Strategist Phil Beatson. “However their tolerance to FE will augment, rather than replace traditional prevention tools such as zinc and pasture/grazing management.”

www.crv4all.co.nz BETTER COWS | BETTER LIFE

Next move?

We are currently deploying our next move in the war against FE! Pregnancies of FE-tolerant cows mated to tolerant sires are expected to produce progeny with an enhanced rate of gain for FE tolerance. However, we urge interested farmers to get on board now rather than wait years for even more tolerant bulls, as tolerance can incrementally accumulate in their herds.

How does it Impact on BW?

Our FE team is selected from our PT bulls each year and represents the team average for genetic merit. Each year our PT team improves by about 10 BW points. We expect our graduates to be about 40 BW superior to the average of their contemporary PT group but it is 4 years before we have the daughter information allowing us to identify these “best” bulls. In that that time our PT team BW will also have increased by 40 points (4 years x 10 BW). In other words, genetically we expect the FE team to have similar genetic merit as the daughter-proven teams in any particular year.

CRV SELECT You told us that you want a simple solution to your dairy breeding which results in better cows. And we listened… The result is CRV Select. CRV Select consists of teams of bulls that are selected especially because they produce daughters who are best suited to particular New Zealand farming systems. To keep it simple we have grouped these into two broad types – so whether you focus your dairy operation towards an Efficiency or a Performance based system, there’s a CRV Select team that’s right for you.

Efficiency based •

Likely to run a relatively low cost, low input farming system

Production of 250–400 kgMS per cow

Need cows that produce well, have high BW, are moderate size and well-liked

Performance based •

More likely to run a medium to high input farming system

Production of >400kgMS per cow

Need cows that give plenty of protein, and have strong udders and plenty of capacity to support the additional production

The pricing is simple – and the most cost effective – too!

Upon closer examination of pricing schemes on similar product lines from other AB companies farmers are often surprised to discover CRV Select comes out as the most competitive option, even when technician fees are included! And what’s more CRV Select prices are not increasing in 2013. It’s quite simple really. We’ve kept the cost to the farmer as low as we can and at the one price per cow across your entire herd. This means, for example, if you are buying 300 straws the cost would be 300 x $13.50 = $4,050: it’s that easy!

HOLSTEIN-FRIESIAN

At CRV Ambreed, we don’t breed for the ‘average’ farmer. In fact, we don’t believe such a farmer even exists. We know there are many farmers out there that are chasing high production and are after an animal that has all the traits to be able to manage such large output. At the same time, there are other, pasture dominant farmers out there wanting a smaller sized animal that can still produce. Add to this those farmers wanting high index. We’ve always offered you the choices and diversity you need to achieve your goals, and once again, 2013 sees us extend our range even further. Outstanding newcomer Dumpling proves big things can come in small packages, with his daughters making big waves in the dairy this season. And likewise on the index charts, Dumpling is flying high as an exceptional dual index Holstein-Friesian sire. Dumpling will significantly lower liveweight and decrease stature in his daughters, who are pumping out large amounts of protein-rich milk.

Our most in-demand Holstein-Friesian in 2012, Shadow continues to impress in 2013. With high dual indexes, positive fertility, massive protein, and udders and capacity to boot, we have no doubt that Shadow will be a chart topper again this year. An InSire Holstein-Friesian who is standing out from the rest – Richie – is sure to make his mark this year, with great indexes and production, but what immediately grabs attention is his phenomenal protein, gBV 50kg! With a nearly flawless profile, we’re expecting Macca will find favour across a wide range of farming systems. Sired by Firenze, Macca is a full F16 despite his OC status, his predominantly black markings inherited from his exceptional Skelton dam. CRV Ambreed’s goal of producing reliable and sustainably profitable animals suited to a wide range of farming goals and systems continues to drive our breeding programme. Turn the page to the cows you want to milk – and keep!

COWS THAT LAST For many years, CRV Ambreed has followed a breeding philosophy with an aim to breed long lasting, trouble free cows. This policy has led to a reputation in New Zealand of ‘Ambreed’ cows being of high quality, which is no accident. Good udder conformation to cope with high production, body capacity to consume large quantities of forage to convert into this production, dairy strength to provide the necessary constitution to survive and the shed traits to please farmers and workers alike…these are ‘Ambreed’ cows. Harvey Oliver made the change to sole use of our genetics some 20 years ago and the wisdom of that decision is plain to see. It is little wonder that Harvey’s successor, son Lance, is continuing with the same breeding strategy. No fewer than 12% of their 400 cow herd are 10 years plus, still pumping the milk out, still walking up and down the hills and still getting back in calf. Pictured here are some examples of these grand old ladies with astonishing udder depth and quality, they look like they’ve got years in them yet!

-3.6

This breeding philosophy doesn’t have the convenience of a single index and can’t easily be quantified. Longevity can’t be proven until cattle stand the test of time but it is the very thing which dairy farmers, all over the world, seek. Dtr: C & C Rowe, Palmerston North

Each yearly crop of replacement heifers carry 50% of the genetics of the sires you choose or are chosen for you. This is a massive annual influence on herd performance and, therefore, a decision not to be taken lightly. CRV Ambreed has the advantage of being part of the third largest cattle breeding company in the world, keeping it at the forefront of international breeding and dairy farming.

Maire EX PRESSO

Increasing numbers of New Zealand dairy farmers are converting their herds into ‘Ambreed’ cows, it seems the Oliver family were ahead of their time and are now fortunate enough to have the ‘proof of the pudding’ as these pictures clearly illustrate.

Protein PUNCH!

Big production

High dual indexes

Milking ‘dynamos’

Positive fertility

Smaller cattle

Well-liked in the shed

Sound udders

With plenty of milk and extreme protein, Helix daughters give loads of production. And with udders tracking positively, we can expect to see further improvements in this area. One to watch as an ‘all-rounder’.

Expect loads of production from smaller robust cows when you use Holler. With BIG milk flooding his pedigree Holler sires real production ‘dynamos’ with big protein AND fat. Udders are built to last, although somatic cell count tends high.

HOLSTEIN-FRIESIAN IMPORTED

The most exciting thing about imported genetics is how well they’re working in New Zealand already. A huge number of ‘Kiwi’ Holstein-Friesians have imported blood in their backgrounds. The fact that these cows are still with you, working hard, is proof that overseas genetics can work in New Zealand herds. Their presence in the background of so many of New Zealand’s top sires says that they’ll be with us going forward too. Imported sires aren’t for everyone, but they may fit into your existing genetics and the plans you have for your herd, better than you think. They are especially effective for farmers who are chasing high production and are after an animal that has all the traits to be able to manage such large output.

Some of the very best moderate and high input herds in the country are using imported genetics to produce cows that will eat as much as they can get and PRODUCE. They tell us that, when added to the fertility and hardiness of local bloodlines, overseas genetics gives them the whole package – strength, capacity, health and the udders needed to pump out the profit year after year. We’re proud to offer the widest selection of imported sires in New Zealand, along with our expertise and advice so you can make the choice for yourself.

Daughters exhibit medium stature compared to other Dutch sires, and are excellent producers. Farmer likeability is a key feature, as is low somatic cells, and a shorter gestation. Daughters are strong upstanding young cows displaying superb type. Udders are the standout feature for Hollandia, with tremendous support, width and attachments that “weld onto the body”.

JERSEY We have always been particularly proud of the quality and depth of our Jersey sires, and 2013 is shaping up to be no exception. CRV Ambreed has enjoyed considerable success over the years in producing some of this country’s best Jersey sires, and it looks like more exciting times are ahead in 2013 with CRV sires once again claiming the top four positions on the breed’s RAS list after the key Animal Evaluation (AE) February run. Exciting new graduate Iceberg is looking to be yet another chart topper from Northland’s famous Okura stud. Comfortably the highest new graduate on the Jersey RAS list with BW 253/81%, Iceberg is also the highest ranking Charisma son to emerge this season. Iceberg is ideal for farmers wanting a production boost in their herd. With 241 NZMI he is definitely a high dual index sire transmitting exceptional protein (BV 13kg) alongside big milk. Iceberg daughters are slightly above average sized cattle with most health, management and type traits sitting around breed mean.

Pioneer (a graduate of Jersey Genes )is one of CRV’s most popular TM

all-rounders that’s been around a few seasons now, exhibiting that staying

power on the charts we have come to expect from CRV bulls. Pioneer was one of the first Nevvy sons to emerge on the scene three seasons ago and immediately epitomised the type of Jersey CRV Ambreed likes to produce with solid production, excellent health and management traits, and sound type with very good udders – essentially a bull with no real flaws.

Murmur has been in heavy demand over the years due to maintaining a consistent presence at the top end of the charts, having held the top spot on the RAS list on numerous occasions. However with the recent advancements being made with genomics, Murmur sons are already on the radar and dominate CRV Ambreed’s offering of InSire Jersey bulls this year with impressive genomic breeding indexes and values, in particular protein.

Ingot is the latest InSire find and is a standout when it comes to protein (gBV 19kg) and exceptional indexes (gNZMI 282, gBW 292) with genomics indicating we should expect big production and big milk from the Ingot daughters who will be cattle built slightly larger than average. Good Jersey cows epitomise the efficiency and profitability of the New Zealand pasture-based system. If you want all of that and more for your farm, you’ve come to the right place!

INTERNATIONAL super sire!

Exceptional protein

Larger capacious cows

Super reliability

A global super sire and breed legend, Manhatten still ranks amongst the best for protein, now having over 39,000 New Zealand daughters. He sires larger capacious cows with a real will to milk that are loved by farmers. NOTE: CRV Ambreed continues to research the underlying cause of a small proportion of abnormal progeny.

Daughter: Springborn Princess 893, Australia

Jersey phenomenon Okura Manhatten put a cap on his illustrious career last year with semen collected for the very last time in June 2012. Incredibly, he has been in production since the turn of this century, and has now retired at age 13. This remarkable CRV ‘teenager’ leaves an amazing legacy behind, having made a huge impact on the Jersey breed in this country. Upon graduating in 2003-04 Manhatten immediately became recognised as an “all-rounder” with the added feature of transmitting exceptional protein. Manhatten went on to dominate the Jersey sire ranks for the latter half of the 2000s as the undisputed ‘protein king’ of the breed, receiving heavy use domestically as well as offshore sales soaring.

Okura MANHATTEN ET SJ3

Over 38,000 Manhatten daughters currently milk in the national dairy herd, and remarkably he still ranks as one of the breed’s top sires for protein. Manhatten retires having sold over 670,000 straws of semen, of which 294,000 were in export sales. Although 18,000 straws were in stock at the time of his retirement in November last year, those stock numbers have dropped to just 5,000 as farmers are grabbing their last chance to get their hands on the protein king.

New graduate Testimonial is worth a good look! Daughters are sound producers finding exceptional favour with farmers in the dairy. Fertility and longevity ratings are also good, but this bull’s standout feature is undoubtedly the superb udders he leaves on his daughters.

Genomic data suggests Swift could be a real gem for farmers wanting ‘easy care’ cows. This Ozark son carries strong dual indexes, and big production figures. But the real appeal comes with the great collection of health and shed traits that accompany.

IMPORTED JERSEY

It’s all about choice. CRV Ambreed’s domestic Jersey offering is so strong that you might wonder why we need imported Jerseys at all. Quite simply, it’s all about choice. We have one of the widest selections of imported genetics in New Zealand, so we’re happy to bring in a little competition to keep our own Jersey boys on their toes!

Danish and Australian Jerseys are ideally suited to pastoral systems. After dominating the Jersey sire ranks for the latter half of the 2000s, and with over 37,000 daughters currently milking in the national herd, Manhatten, who has a Danish sire, is proud proof of how well they’ll go for you. This selection of sires will add capacity, strength and production capability and are an excellent injection of new blood.

CROSSBRED SELECTION

www.crv4all.co.nz BETTER COWS | BETTER LIFE

BACK TO MENU


ARE YOU GETTING THE CROSSBRED COW YOU REALLY WANT? It’s worth asking yourself what you’re trying to achieve in your herd and how to get there. Crossbred bulls have been pitched as the easy choice but, like anything, more care will ALWAYS lead to better results! There are three ways to get a crossbred cow, each with opportunities and challenges:

3. CROSSBRED SIRES

Using crossbred sires (usually Holstein-Friesian/Jersey) over purebred or crossbred cows in an effort to gain some heterosis and other crossbreeding benefits with minimal breeding selection input

     

1. ROTATIONAL CROSSING

Using purebred sires from three or even four different (but compatible) breeds for maximum heterosis and genetic gain

      

Maximum possible heterosis benefits Outcross genetics/genetic diversity Consistent results Increased fertility, moderate size, valuable components Takes the very best factors of each breed and delivers them into your herd Third breed can be lower indexing The most complex of the three systems, although SireMatch can make it easy for you

High index Moderate size Low heterosis – just 50% Less consistent results meaning more wastage in terms of less desirable progeny More sires to choose from than ever before Need to carefully select suitable matings and ensure that a balance between breeds is maintained – not the easy option

Crossbreeding, when done properly, can certainly make you more money and may be just the thing to push your herd closer to your particular farming goals. But each option has advantages and disadvantages that can make it difficult to decide which option is the right one. We understand that one size does not fit all and can make it easy to find the best solution for your system – give us a call for more information.

2. CRISS CROSSING

Using purebred sires alternating between two breeds (in New Zealand these are usually Holstein-Friesian and Jersey) to maintain good levels of heterosis with easier selection in terms of complementarity and genetic merit

       

Familiar – one of New Zealand’s most common ways of crossbreeding Good heterosis benefits and consistent results Less complex than rotational crossing Moderately sized, sturdy cows with good levels of milk and components Excellent range of New Zealand’s top sires to choose from Maintenance and advancement of index Lower heterosis benefits than rotational crossing Care needs to be taken when putting Holstein-Friesian over Jersey to minimise calving difficulty Still some attention needed to choose the correct breed for the correct cow, but this is simplified using SireMatch
