Animal breeding has been part of agriculture for thousands of years.  By observing animals, farmers - and later scientists - have been able to continually produce healthier and productive animals.  

By using our deep knowledge and care for the animal, along with innovative tools and technologies, Genus R&D’s focus on addressing animal diseases and acceleration of the genetic gain will continue to help improve animal welfare, and provide meat and milk with less impact on the environment and a better nutritional profile.


Genus R&D Technology Platform

Our technology platform includes several areas and efforts to pioneer animal genetic improvement:

  • Reproductive Biology focuses on the development and commercial application of advanced reproductive techniques.
  • Biosystems Engineering integrates engineering science and design with applied biological and environmental sciences.
  • Trait Development responsibly and transparently applies the latest and safest technologies focusing on disease-resistance in animals.
  • Genome Science develops and provides foundational genomic knowledge about livestock animals for genetic improvement.
  • Regulatory Science and Affairs is charged with fulfilling Genus' commitment to partner and comply with all government regulations related to farm animals and new animal breeding techniques.
