The aAa Manual for the Practical Dairy Farmer
For those readers who know of the aAa Selection method, or those that look at the aAa codes in our catalogue and wonder what this relates to. This booklet is a tool for using the aAa Method.
As it works through the various chapters the reader will gain an understanding the aAa Coding system has been developed. The codes, the principals and the co-relation between quality characteristics and traits, and which traits a cow needs in order to perform.
In the later chapters the book looks int the subject of Setting Breeding Goals with the aAa Method and the possibility of combining this with breeding values.
Booklets are available from Samen NZ at NZ$10.00. Place your order by email here using aAa Booklet in the subject line .
ALBIORIX RF - Raising The Standard !
The many enthusiastic reactions to the ALBIORIX RF daughter group at the Hardenberg Show have made us even more enthusiastic about this bull. In addition to information about Albiorix RF on our website we can now also give you an insight in the percentage of daughters remaining in the herds compared to the national average.
ALBIORIX RF is a bull who makes cows with excellent frames. Cows that produce high volumes of milk with ease and hold body condition very well. He transmits a slight slope of the rump, but above all, very wide rumps. This width reflects in the udders, which are strong and high attached.

The Passing of a Gentle Giant
Sadly we report that our very popular Holstein Friesian bull Panama has passed away.
Panama was one of New Zealand’s first proven O’Man sons. His dam was the very high producing Holim NZ Knockout Pam ET, born in New Zealand from an imported embryo out of the Holim program in Holland. (full article)
The Genus team have put together an updated catalogue for grassland farmers. This comprises a range from the Fertile Frisian cross Holstein breeding programme.
Our own range of "Fertile Friesians" has sold extremely well this year, with many pasture based farmers finding the traits these bulls offer very hard to ignore.
