In recent years Warringa has implemented a policy to introduce superior genetics by the use of artificial insemination. Warringa endeavour to obtain semen in outstanding young sires that have the genetic merit to obtain their breeding objectives and have been used in their breeder’s herds. This gives them direct linkage with the breeder’s herd and any other herds that have used the same bull.
