Holstein UK

Welcome to Holstein UK, our mission is to be squarely at the heart of the dairy industry and as such our aim is to assist our members in breeding profitable, robust and productive dairy cattle.  

We are a member-owned organisation dedicated to innovation and quality and are driven to continuously improve the services we offer.

We are the parent of two subsidiary companies, The Cattle Information Service (CIS) and National Bovine Data Centre (NBDC).

The Cattle Information Service (CIS) is the UK's leading milk recording and health testing organisation operating a state-of-the-art laboratory.  

National Bovine Data Centre (NBDC) exists to develop industry-leading analysis of data for the improvement of dairy production in the UK.

The British Friesian Breeders Club was formed in 1990 to promote and encourage the best of British Friesians.
