- Forward Pack — for farmers looking to fast-track genetic gains.
- Daughter Proven — for farmers who want proven bulls.
- A2 teams - for farmers who want an A2 herd.
If you want more heifer calves from your top cows, we also offer small teams of sexed bulls for a short time during the spring mating season. The semen of these bulls has been sexed so you can produce more heifer calves.
We regularly monitor the performance of all Premier Sires bulls during the season, and change the makeup of the teams if necessary.
Forward Pack — fast-track genetic gains
Forward Pack teams are made up of the top performers from our Daughter Proven teams, plus a selection of elite young bulls that show great genetic promise. From mid-October we add early daughter proven Spring bulls to the Forward Pack team.
Forward Pack is a good choice to gain a competitive edge. You get to breed from our best daughter proven bulls — and you also get to fast-track genetic gain through early access to the bulls we expect to become star performers. We have a Forward Pack team for Holstein-Friesian, Jersey and KiwiCross bulls.

Daughter Proven — for proven bulls
Daughter Proven teams are made up entirely of graduates from our Sire Proving Scheme. These bulls have a proven track record, making Daughter Proven teams the right choice if you’re looking for reliable, consistent results at a good price.
We have a Daughter Proven team for Holstein-Friesian, Jersey and KiwiCross bulls, as well as two smaller teams specifically for breeding with yearlings, where ease of calving is important.

A2 teams - for A2 bulls
A2 teams are made up of genomically selected sires that carry the A2 protein allele. These teams are the right choice if you're transitioning your herd to A2 or you already have an A2 herd.
We have three A2 teams:
KiwiCross Yearling A2
We do not have a specific A2 Jersey team due to the high frequency of the A2 allele in the Jersey population. A2 teams are unavailable in conjunction with a Daughter Proven plan or Forward Pack plan of the same breed and animal group.
Sexed bulls — for more heifer calves
For a short time during the spring mating season we offer teams of bulls whose semen has been sexed to increase the chance of producing a heifer from 50% to 90%.
Our sexed teams are made up of elite young bulls that show great genetic promise.
Sexed bull teams are only available if there is enough interest.
