Welcome to LIC

We're about improving dairy farmer prosperity.


LIC is a cooperative, so belongs exclusively to its New Zealand-based dairy farmer customers.

The company has a proud history, having pioneered several key initiatives that today provide New Zealand dairy farmers with their competitive edge on the world stage. Examples include the systematic herd testing of milk quality, the distribution of Long Last Liquid (fresh) semen, and the introduction of DNA technology to genomically identify, and select, elite sires.

Our work to continuously improve dairy cow performance continues: A significant part of this responsibility is to provide reproductive solutions that suit the needs of individual farming customers.

On a national scale, it's our pledge to continue to set new benchmarks for our country's dairy herd.

Year in.

Year out.
