TLG NOW OFFERING GENOMIC TESTING FOR AUSTRALIAN DAIRY FARMERS

Total Livestock Genetics announced today that it has entered into a strategic agreement with Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG)

Neogen Corporation is a leader in the development of animal genomics along with the manufacturing and distribution of a variety of animal healthcare products, including diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, veterinary instruments, wound care and disinfectants.

Results from genomic tests can deliver highly reliable genomic projections on several different variables. This includes traits such as Net Merit, BPI, Daughter Pregnancy Rate, Daughter Fertility, Productive Life, Survival and Somatic Cell Score. It also includes yield traits, such as an animal’s milk, fat, fat percentage, protein and protein percentage.

In the world of genomics time is money, Neogen has demonstrated a continued commitment to the success of the dairy producer by providing genomic testing results faster than ever. This allows dairy producers to make economically impactful decisions on a younger animal potentially reducing costly days of feed.

Total Livestock Genetics will market several unique genomic tests, Igenity Aussie Select, Igenity Essential and Igenity Select. These will be delivered to meet each individual customer’s requirements on Australian and USA predictions.

Total Livestock Genetics Managing Director Dr Shane Ashworth said ”We are extremely excited about this product. Genomics is an absolute must for the modern dairy farmer. We will focus on rapid turnaround of results and meaningful data to help them make important decisions. Producers will be able to access this data in a very unique and efficient manner on the Igenity Dashboard.

Total Livestock Genetics will launch the product at International Dairy Week on January 16 in Tatura.
