High input index

Choose high input Holstein-Friesian and KiwiCross bulls that will produce offspring suited to intensive feeding.

Breed profitable cows that are suited to high input feeding.

These traits are:

  • udder support
  • capacity
  • udder overall
  • residual survival.

These traits are combined with the traits for BW to produce a high input index for each bull. We use this index to identify bulls whose offspring are most suited to a high input feeding system.

You can use the index to compare how suitable animals are to the system.  


We put together teams of bulls that will produce high BW animals with the right traits to cope with high input feeding.

We offer No Choice High Input Packs in two breeds:

  • Holstein-Friesian
  • KiwiCross

Minimum order: 30 straws.
