Imagine if you could reproduce the best of beef and dairy cattle to improve yields and benefit the environment, in harmony.

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.  

Anthony James, Managing Partner at Grosvenor Food & AgTech, took the opportunity to interview Kerryann Kocher, the CEO of Vytelle, one of our portfolio companies. Watch the video below.

Grosvenor Food & AgTech saw the opportunity to combine two of its leading agricultural businesses – GrowSafe’s integrated monitoring systems database with Vytelle’s genetic evaluation and reproduction technologies – to create a single precision livestock operation and shorten the interval between identifying elite performing animals and, through genetics, bringing those characteristics to market to add value in the beef and dairy industries.
