ABS Global Graduates 18 Sires with Continued Focus on Profitable Genetics

MADISON, Wis., U.S.A. (April 6, 2016)— ABS® Global, the world’s leading provider of genetic improvement solutions and reproduction services, is excited to graduate 18 sires into its proven sire lineup that provide a wide-variety of desirable traits to each type of dairy producer around the world.

“We want to be the best at maximizing customer profitability through genetic progress. And, whether focused on a more efficient operation, individual cows, or the bottom line—our recent graduates, and our entire sire lineup, provide dairymen around the globe with countless opportunities to make their herds more profitable,” says Saskia Korink, Chief Operating Officer. “It’s simple—our genetic solutions provide the right combination of efficiency, health, productivity, calving ease, fertility, and pedigree diversity to help our customers succeed.”

Graduating 18 sires is just one of many big things happening at ABS. ABS Global continues to provide revolutionary genetic selection tools such as patent-pending TransitionRight™ Genetics—which was expanded last week to include the Jersey breed. These product launches support our new customer promise: Profit From Genetic Progress. The excitement doesn’t stop there! ABS also recently acquired St. Jacobs ABC—further demonstrating our commitment to offer customers elite high-type genetics.

“Whether you’re looking for a balanced sire to provide you with a lifetime of profitability, or hoping to introduce superior type genetics into your herd, ABS understands your needs and is building a lineup to help you be more sustainably profitable,” says Mitch Amundson, Global Dairy Brand Manager. “I am excited to introduce you to our newest globally-proven sires that bring you a variety of traits to help your operation succeed.”
