Stabilizer are proven to perform favourably against other traditional beef breeds in a dairy cow production system.*

Focus Genetics and Hazlett Ltd have joined forces to create the United Dairy Beef Partnership enabling farmer’s access to top beef genetics with calf rearing and finishing opportunities.

The original composition of Stabilizer® was based on 25% of Angus, Simmental, Hereford and Gelbvieh. As a four breed composite the Stabilizer® retains 75% of the F1 hybrid vigour.

The Stabilizer® breed is a multi-breed composite developed by Leachman Cattle Company. The breed is based on over 30 years of research at the Meat Animal Research Centre, Nebraska. They can be found in a wide range of environments in NZ, USA, South America, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

Stabilizer advantages include

  • Low birthweights (around 34-35kg over crossbred cows*)
  • Accelerated growth from birth
  • Less cost to wean and earlier finishing
  • Increased intra-muscular fat and yields (50-55% at 18 months*)
  • Increased carcass weight 30-50kg
  • Solid colour progeny that are easily identifiable
  • 278-282 average gestation length
  • Stabilizer® is a registered trademark of Focus Genetics

*Focus Genetics runs its own propriety multi-breed analysis conducted independently by Colorado State University. This allows us to objectively measure and compare the records of over 100,000 individuals combined genetic linkages to one of the world’s largest multi-breed databases with over 1,000,000 cattle.
