GENEX, part of Cooperative Resources International (CRI), is the trusted provider of world-class animal genetics, progressive reproductive solutions, value-added products and innovative services to members and customers.
Since the formation of predecessor cooperatives in the 1930s, GENEX has brought together reputable genetics and reproductive experts through nearly 50 business mergers and acquisitions. In fact, many of today’s employees and members have roots in 21st Century Genetics, Eastern AI, Atlantic Breeders or Noba — organizations that helped shape GENEX into a trusted supplier of practical, science-based and customized animal reproductive solutions.
GENEX history also writes a remarkable list of industry firsts. This cooperative has again and again applied experience, science and data-driven knowledge to deliver innovative products and services. GENEX was the first to research and publish a dairy calving ease summary, herdlife evaluation and total economic sire index; the first in the U.S. to offer a commercially available dairy mating system; the first to offer the Pocket Thaw™ semen thawing method; the first to provide chute-side beef reproductive service; the first stud to publish data-backed dairy and beef sire fertility rankings; and the first in the U.S. to develop and maintain a dairy nucleus herd. These and more recent developments like the Ideal Commercial Cow index and Subclinical Ketosis, Metritis and Foot Health breeding values have earned GENEX the reputation of the industry’s innovator.
Today, GENEX continually strives to lead the way with science-based animal genetics and innovative services producers can trust. Put more simply...
GENEX is innovative excellence in animal genetics.
