In 2011, in partnership with Sexing Technologies, TLG commissioned Australia’s first and only commercial Sexed Semen facility.
This exciting technology allows owners of Australian genetics to compete in the local and global market with semen that has been based on the selection of gender.
Demand has taken off with the laboratory moving to six machines for the 2015 season.
One use of the technology that has been particularly well supported is the use of “fresh” sorted semen. This has unlocked milking and mature beef cows for the technology as well as made it highly successful in embryo recovery programmes.
The process is available for many species and donors can be housed at TLG for collection and sorting as well as transporting quality semen to the laboratory.
