Cows wean a higher percentage of their body weight and the performance recording enabled us to increase herd output

We started using stabiliser genetics in 2016, we were drawn to the breed because of the docility, easy calving, feed efficiency, high health status of the breeders herds and the performance recording, giving us confidence in what we bought. We have not looked back since buying our first bull and 10 heifers. They exceeded all our expectations. We now have a closed herd and are multipliers for the breed. Changing to stabilisers has enabled us to calve heifers at 2years old with no problems, cows wean a higher percentage of their body weight and the performance recording enabled us to increase herd output. We have increased cow numbers without any need for extra labour inputs.
