ABS Global, Inc. has updated its Canadian facilities to maximize product supply stability for its global customers.
"We look forward to using the updated Canadian facilities to continue providing our customers unparalleled product," said Daniel Hodgkin, production manager for ABS Canada. "The new facilities will allow an improved environment for bulls and employees while providing another avenue for global customers to access the ABS product line."
Bulls were previously housed in leased rearing and quarantine facilities not originally meant for housing bulls. The new facilities will provide improved safety and flexibility while handling bulls.
In 2012, the ABS Canada facility produced more than 2.5 million units of semen from 214 bulls, offering ABS Global another option for semen collection. The new main barn can house between 120-140 bulls and is 35,000 square feet with a separate 1,360 square foot quarantine facility.
Headquartered in DeForest, Wisconsin, ABS Global is the world-leading provider of bovine genetics, reproduction services, technologies and uddercare products. Marketing in more than 80 countries around the globe, ABS has been at the forefront of animal genetics and technology since its founding in 1941. ABS Global is a division of Genus plc.
