Joshstar was established in 2003, but it wasn't until 2008 when we purchased three quality foundation females from John and Sandra Taylor's Waitaporiri dispersal sale that changed our direction of where we wanted to be with our Herefords. Later purchases were made from Leelands, Platform, Awhea, Ardo and Kairuru female stock of similar pheno types.
Joshstar then purchased Awhea Immense 420 at the 2010 New Zealand Beef National which was a defining moment for our stud, not only a magnificent champion show bull, he is leaving great progeny, quiet, soft with lots of length and thickness.
Our aim is to have a quality cow herd that will produce good carcass animals, well structured and soft skinned for the stud and commercial environment.
Our cow herd and replacements are farmed just north of Huntly in the Waikato. We would enjoy taking you through our herd anytime.
* Looking forward to our first annual bull sale.
Joshstar Herefords places high value on our stud breeding cows because they are the srength of our stud, then it's up to us to breed them well.
Joshstar Herefords has a focused breeding program in place to produce the type of animal for New Zealand stud breeders and commercial farmers.

Our flush program also adds depth to our breeding year.
26th June 2014
Flush cows that go into the flush program are chosen because they consistantly produce quality progeny and it is an exciting part of the Joshstar breeding program to grow our breeding cow depth.
