KAKAHU EXPANDS INTO DAIRY WITH ANGUS EMBRYO’S

Geraldine based Kakahu has expanded into the dairy industry with the purchase of a dairy farm located…

KAKAHU

Located south of Geraldine, the property is 1200 hectares ranging from river flats to steeper hills. 250 hectares are irrigated. Kakahu has an Angus and Charolais stud.

The Angus stud was started in 1954 by KH Hargreaves, Gerald’s father, and now we run 550 cows with around 100 of these at Clayton Station. Huge emphasis is placed on breeding animals with high production and great constitution. We breed cattle suitable for the high end meat market, so when breeders are paid for quality they will be at the leading edge.

The Charolais Stud was started in 2006 by Gerald and Tom, and now has 80 cows, selecting especially for good temperament and feet as well as growth and carcass attributes.

We run 3000 composite ewes and fatten all lambs.

We have two cattle sales a year, selling 100 Angus bulls and 20 Charolais bulls in June, and 60 Angus yearlings in October. We sell approximately 200 Kakahu bred commercial heifers for sale throughout the Spring. These heifers are mated to yearling bulls in the top 5% for Calving Ease.

Kakahu Angus

Today we’ve released a major piece of research that shows NZ sheep and beef farmers are close to being carbon neutral, due to the woody vegetation on their farms offsetting between 63% and 118% of the on-farm agricultural emissions.

This research strengthens our calls for the formal recognition of on-farm sequestration. If farmers are to face a price for agricultural emissions, it’s only fair they get credit for their sequestration.

The study’s findings reinforce that NZ’s red meat is among the most sustainable in the world and it could potentially give our farmers and exporters a real competitive advantage with consumers.

Huge efforts have been made by many farmers to protect and enhance biodiversity on their farms. The report also identifies where to focus on to continue to build the native vegetation and biodiversity on their farms.
