“Mahuta hereford Stud has a specialist heifer mating program. The stud has been breeding bulls for yearling heifer mating in the dairy industry for more than 20 years.

Our clients have been using these bulls for many years with a minimum of problems. There are very few studs in New Zealand  who can match ours for consistency of low birthweight. We recommend discussion about individual choices as there is a range of calving ease among the bulls we offer.”
