Ayrshire Sires of the Future

To ensure the breed maintains its position as a breed of choice for New Zealand dairy farmers, we need to prove the bulls. And to do that, we need you!
The 2022 selection of Young Ayrshires are bred from a wide range of notable proven New Zealand and overseas sires, and consistent cow families. These young bulls represent a vibrant mix of genetics to improve BW, fertility and conformation for the Ayrshire breed.

  • Free registration for all two year olds sired by Semayr Progeny Test bulls
  • Free classification for all your two year olds, if at least 20% are sire by Semayr Progeny Test bulls
  • Not available until spring mating. All orders subject to availability. If semen cannot be provided, LIC will contact you to arrange a replacement.
  • Minimum 3 bulls and 20 straws in a Pak (equal quantities of each)
All semen may be ordered through Aplha Nominated or your LIC Farm Solutions Manager
