Company Overview

Genus plc is a world leader in applying science to animal breeding. It was formed in 1984 after the breakup of the Milk Marketing Board. Genus creates advances to animal breeding through biotechnology and sells added value products for livestock farming and food producers. Its non-genetically modified organism technology is applicable across all livestock species but is only commercialised by Genus in the bovine and porcine farming sectors. Genus' worldwide sales are made under the trade marks ABS (dairy and beef cattle) and PIC (pigs) and comprise semen and breeding animals with superior genetics to those animals currently in production. Genus' current products and services enable producers and farmers to enhance milk and meat quality and improve efficiency through the application of natural genetic selection. Customers' animals produce offspring with greater production efficiency, milk and meat output and quality and use these to supply the global dairy and meat supply chain of farmers, breeders, processors, distributors, retailers and consumers.
