The 250-animal NZ Kiwipole breeding nucleus has animals that have been milked in New Zealand since 2011 and spans several different bloodlines from US Holstein, to Crossbreed to Jersey. This has enabled the development and selection of the best fit genetics for a variety of farming systems and heat stress tolerance for tropical farming clients.

The slick gene is present in several dairy clusters around the world, in NZ, USA, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Tanzania and Mozambique. Thermo Regulatory Genetics Limited has lead the development of the slick nucleus in many of these markets and offers an outcross for those with established herd momentum.
