The Kiwipole is a quantum leap forward for heat tolerance, offering up to 4 liters/8.82 pounds per day more milk and up to a 2 month shorter calving interval. Thermo Regulatory Genetics owns the Kiwipole and continues to develop the composite breeding program and the efficacy data, to provide farmers the most profitable dairy genetics for their farming system and levels of heat stress.
The ‘Slick gene’ that the Kiwipole bull team possesses enable their daughters to regulate their body temperature whilst maintaining milk yield in conditions of heat stress. These cows are able to breed back quicker, therefore providing more days in milk.
