Mission

The demand for food continues to grow. The world’s population, as well as the world’s per capita animal consumption, grows every year and is not expected to slow down. We must find a way to feed the world, while also advancing rural development, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and protecting valuable ecosystems.

To address this pressing issue, our mission is to support the global food challenge with high quality animal genetics. This mission is the guiding purpose behind everything we do. High quality genetics play an important role in reducing the amount of resources needed to feed, house and transport animals in the value chain. To maintain high quality animal genetics, continuous improvement in our breeding programs, day after day, year after year is required for what we do. We are dedicated to contributing to all of our breeding programs in order to ensure our products achieve their maximum potential. Learn more about our mission.

Vision

Our continuous efforts to produce high quality genetics brings us closer to our future goal to set the standard for sustainable animal breeding. Sustainable animal breeding standards currently do not exist, but they are needed in order to feed a growing world population in a way that can be sustained continuously for many years to come.

Sustainable initiatives can exist in multiple contexts. Economic, social, and environmental sustainability standards each contribute to a better future. By working together towards setting these standards, we can feed our world with healthy, ethical, and sustainable animal protein. Learn more about our vision.
