The co-operation between Alta and CRV offers economies of scale resulting in greater volumes and higher quality of genetics on the US base with the end product being a greater output of high GTPI™ bulls. Clients of both Alta and CRV can count on an even stronger and more varied portfolio of top quality bulls on a GTPI™ basis, while the breeding focus of both organizations will retain their own identity. The partnership between Alta and CRV offers significant advantages in selection processes, but both organizations will continue to make genetic selections based on their own breeding philosophy.

Co-operation Fits in Strategy
The collaboration between Alta and CRV is an extension and enhancement of their current genetic programs in North America. "Through the partnership we can strengthen our portfolio of top end GTPI™ bulls both inside and outside the United States. Alta and CRV will do this from their own vision of breeding and with mutual respect. This alliance will strengthen our ambitions" says CRV Executive Director Operations and Development Ate Lindeboom

According to Alta Chief Operating Officer Paul Hunt "This collaboration enables both companies to make additional investments in genetics to continue to lead genetic improvement in the exciting and competitive era of genomic selection. The results of this collaboration will allow Alta to continue providing unrivaled genetic quality and value to their clients globally."

Alta and CRV will immediately commence scale-up of this joint breeding activity.
