MILESTONE DAM

Kakahu has the oldest Milestone dam in the country and she has just been pregnancy tested in calf with her 14th calf. The Kakahu/Lawson genetics are proving that combining longevity with top production is feasible. We have 24 other dams matching the milestone requirements. This is more than double any other stud in New Zealand.

In order to qualify for the Milestone Dam list, a cow must have the following attributes and performance parameters related to sustainable Beef Herd production in New Zealand on our pasture based management system. Both Registered and Performance Recorded (PRAC) cows are eligible.

A “Milestone Dam” Must:

  • Have calved her first calf before 821 days days ( ie calve at 2yrs)
  • Have had at least Four calves at consecutive calvings
  • Have Calving Ease Direct EBV in top 50% of the breed ( ie above breed average)
  • Have Calving Ease Maternal in top 50% of the breed
  • Have Weaning weight EBV in Top 50% of the breed
  • Have Days to Calving EBV in top 75% of breed ( ie exclude bottom 25% only)
