EASY UNASSISTED CALVING plus smaller beefier calves from your
valuable Jersey and Friesian dairy heifers ...
- Lowline bulls throw very small calves which
cause minimal stress to your valuable Friesian
or Jersey dairy heifers. Expect 23kg to 28kg birth weights from
Friesian heifers and lower from Jerseys.
- Expect unassisted calving. An Oz dairy farmer who has
joined Lowline bulls to his dairy heifers for the last 12
years, reports no assisted births, no abortions and no
empty heifers during that period.He was so pleased with the results that he leased the next door farm to grow them on
as dairy beef, an operation now in place for nine years.
- Shorter gestation, from seven to 15 days less
than with other breeds of bull, so you'll get around 10 days more
milk plus greater management flexibility.
- Small but nimble. Young Lowline bulls can cover heifers
as big as a Brahmin. Friesian or Jersey dairy heifers are a

or more without sacrificing fertility or over-stressing your
dairy heifers. Lowline bulls weigh 650 to 750kg at
maturity and are renowned for their

bulls eat less than your present bull.

- You'll get a quality calf every year and they'll be in high
demand. In Tasmania Lowline x Friesian calves have topped the

Unbelievable, but it's true.
- Lowline x dairy calves are placid, easy
to handle, easy on fences, very suitable for lifestyle blocks or
small acreages and produce extremely high quality beef. A
pleasure to farm.
- Surprisingly profitable. On Oz grazing country, Lowline X
Friesian steers are replacing the traditional three year bullock
with a 24 month finished steer at a live weight
of around 490 kg. Four hundred day growth
rates are exceptional and in NZ conditions they finish even

SMALLER BETTER CALVES You may have had problems using Angus bulls over dairy heifers in the past, but Lowline
Angus,while having 100% Angus genes, also have a very compact frame.
You'll get a smaller,trouble free, faster maturing calf which local lifestylers will want to grow on. There is a whole farmers' market industry centred around Lowline Angus x Jersey calves in South Auckland.
BRED FOR BETTER BEEF
Because Lowline Angus x dairy steers produce
meat with such good marbling and just the right amount of
sub-cutaneous fat, they win carcass awards against all comers.
