Assisting Animal Professionals with Their Breeding Needs
From farm animal production for food to veterinary care, we understand the fast-paced and demanding requirements in animal breeding settings. Over 30 years ago, our company started with humble beginnings in the equine breeding industry. We possess technical expertise in animal reproduction and create assisted reproductive technology to meet your animal breeding needs.
Artificial insemination is a critical stage for producing successful for the commercial meat industry. Bovine and swine make up for the majority of farm animals used for agricultural food production. In 2020, the USDA estimates that the production of cattle, hogs, and pigs for the United States totaled 86 billion pounds. Our IVOS and CEROS sperm analyzers provide dosing calculations to help you identify livestock’s genetic potential or assess the quality of previously frozen sperm samples.
