CRV, a world-leading cattle improvement organization, and Neogen, an innovative animal genetics laboratory, have entered into a working partnership to offer an advanced breeding solution based on genomic valuation of calves—equipping dairy producers with precision tools and information needed to make informed decisions in building their ideal herd. Using Neogen as their genomic testing partner, CRV has developed HerdOptimizer — a complete-solutions approach to building a dairyman’s ideal herd.

In 2014, Neogen and Merck Animal Health made headlines by entering a strategic agreement to market the Neogen Igenity genomic testing program. Today’s agreement between CRV and Neogen takes these partnerships to the next level—allowing all three organizations to promote and sell a full package of innovative solutions for U.S. dairy producers.
