AgGenetics is Meeting Agricultural Demands
in a Socially Responsible Way
Our business is built on the philosophy that happier, healthier animals are good for everyone’s bottom line.
Global demand for protein will double in the next few decades. The only way to meet this demand in a way that is both respectful of animal well being and preserves or increases wild spaces is to make livestock that are better adapted to their environment, and which use fewer resources to produce the same amount of protein. In this way, our solutions can help the livestock, the planet, and the producer, all at the same time.
See the video presentation or the links below for an overview of our current projects.
Heat Adapted Angus
½ Time : ½ Feed : 2x Beef
Angus produce twice the beef for the same grain input as current heat tolerant breeds like Brahma and Nellore, and so can double beef production on the same land. Our heat tolerant Angus use only genes found in other cattle breeds, and so are non-GMO.
Our copper test allows greatly improved feed calibration in beef and dairy cattle. Cattle are very sensitive to mineral levels in their diet, and diet that is not optimized can lead to poor performance (weight gain, fertility, etc.) from either deficiency or toxicity. Our product has much lower cost and is much easier to administer than current alternatives.
