Low N Sires™ – CRV Ambreed

CRV Ambreed is excited to announce a major genetic breakthrough that will potentially provide a solution for more sustainable dairy farming in New Zealand.

Agriculture’s impact on the environment is a major topic world-wide. In New Zealand degradation of waterways is the main concern.

Much of the contamination of waterways is caused by Nitrogen leached from urine patches of cows. Reduction of Nitrogen excreted in urine is desirable to reduce this leaching.

CRV Ambreed has several research and development programmes aimed at improving farming sustainability using genetics.

Breeding to reduce Nitrogen excreted in urine is one of those programmes.
