The 200 acre, Awahuri Artificial Breeding Centre opened in 1961, for the purposes of herd improvement. It was built to service the Taranaki, Wellington, Hawkes Bay and South Island areas.

These images were in a collection held by architect, Acton Wylde-Browne. It is thought he probably designed the building.
