TOP NOTCH CALVES
REARED FOR SUCCESS

Welcome to the home of exceptional calves.

We’ve been rearing calves for more than 15 years and we love what we do. Calves arrive on our farm at just four to seven days old and we pride ourselves on producing high-quality, healthy and happy animals in around 12 weeks.

“Calf-rearing takes a lot of time and commitment and you really need to love calves to do it.”

Over the years, we’ve fine-tuned our approach to ensure the animals that come through our gate are treated with the utmost care and attention. We’ve created specialist feed recipes to promote optimal health in the animals’ crucial first three months of life. Our farm at Tirau, in the heart of the Waikato dairy farming region, offers plenty of pasture and space. And we are hands-on with each and every one of our calves to be sure good health is the number one priority. It’s all about giving our calves the best start in life and rearing for success.
