Global Agenda for sustainable livestock

Swissgenetics is a member of the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock (GASL)

The Agenda is a partnership of livestock sector stakeholders committed to the sustainable development of the sector. We believe that sustainable cattle production and intensification begins with the choice of bovine semen. As a cooperative we represent farmers and are responsible for the breeding and artificial insemination systems for several Swiss cattle breeds. Our philosophy is based on using available resources sustainably. This enables Swissgenetics to support farmers’ efforts in developing efficient breeding stock, whether they are focused on dairy, beef or dual purpose cattle. Animal production with roughage-based feed is not only more ecological and more economic, but is also better for animal and human health. Our cattle breeds are part of a pasture-based environment which has developed unique, robust and adapted genetics. Swissgenetics’ wide line-up of bovine genetics guarantees the development of a herd adapted to climate conditions and environmental challenges. Farmers choose the ideal breeds for their production system to ensure the most cost-effective solution. For more information on the GASL:
