Beef and dairy cattle can vary enormously in terms of how much they eat, how fast they grow and how much milk they yield.
Imagine if for these, and many other factors, you could identify elite traits and replicate them in their offspring to benefit producers and the environment through the more efficient use of resources.
That’s why we are an active investor in Vytelle, which combines integrated monitoring systems – that enable producers to identify their elite performing beef and dairy cattle – with its unique reproductive technologies, to fast forward genetic progress by matching traits with improved outcomes.
This is achieved by combining fully integrated systems which provide individual animal data, such as feed intake or changes in behaviour, with unique in-vitro fertilization (IVF) products and services, to develop market leading performance, and enabling agriculture to be more efficient, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable.
For centuries humans have been enhancing livestock production animals to improve resistance and yields. Technology is now helping us do so with dramatic precision and purpose, enabling us to produce the more efficient animals and farming systems needed in the future.
