When you think of ABS Global, your first thought may be simply about that straw of bull semen used to breed your cows. That’s true, but there’s a lot behind that straw of semen and what it takes to provide the elite genetics you’ve come to rely on. We have five key areas that make our business unique and allows us to best serve our customers as the world-leading provider in animal genetics and reproduction.
WHAT MAKES ABS UNIQUE
People make the difference

Research and product validation is another key area that sets ABS apart from other genetic suppliers around the globe. Progeny testing is not new to ABS, we’ve been pioneers in real world progeny evaluation since the early 1960s. Validating the programs and genetics we offer is a high priority and we currently have research trials being conducting at Hy-Plains Feedyard, KS., Cactus Feeders, TX., The Bair Ranch, MT., and Oklahoma State University, OK. In addition, ABS works with numerous progeny test herds around the globe that allow us to test and prove the genetics we offer our customers. This ensures ABS programs and genetics will work for our customers and that they will add value from Pasture to Plate.
ABS also prides itself on a long history of innovation in cattle genetics and reproduction technology. In the early 1970s, ABS assisted the Linde Corporation in the development of the industry’s first longer holding time storage tanks and published the first EPDs (expected progeny differences) from our progeny test program. The more recent launch of our Sexcel sexed semen offering in 2017 is another great example of ABS pioneering through technology. The development of this ABS exclusive technology required broad expertise from a wide range of scientists, engineers, biologists and more. Some of these brilliant thinkers came from NASA and cancer research projects to work on this project, which truly shows ABS’s commitment to recruiting the best to benefit our customers. The resulting Sexcel technology allows customers to not only select the gender of individual calves but to also then build more targeted and profitable production systems as a result.
