Cogent Breeding: 20 Years of Backing British Farming

In 1995, Cogent Breeding had a vision to support British dairying and get the industry back on to the global map. Now, 20 years later, the company continues to push the boundaries of farming by providing consistent genetic and technological improvements for customers.

Cogent were the pioneers in sexed semen technology, establishing themselves as market-leaders with a world-class UK breeding programme. This saw the beginning of a dedication to source the highest quality bovine genetics, including, the most comprehensive beef range available on the market today and the launch of the world’s number one genomic sire, Cogent Supershot.


Innes Drummond, Cogent’s UK Operations Manager said: “Cogent’s history is very much the history of farming and over the years we have worked with generations of farm businesses to ensure we have adapted to the needs of the changing industry.”

“Our vision has always been for the advancement of agriculture and we knew that the development of sexed semen was crucial for the industry to survive. It is this drive to continually develop, invest and reach the highest possible standards, from the welfare of our bulls to the latest technology, which ensures our customers get the best product.”

To mark the 20 year milestone, Cogent plans to celebrate with its customers in style. Throughout the coming year, Cogent will be making available offers and promotions as well as holding special events. Most importantly, their firm commitment remains in place and they will continue pushing the boundaries to improve beef and dairy genetics for UK farmers.

Cogent’s UK General Manager, James Hallett, said: “This year Cogent Breeding celebrates 20 years of dedication and support for farmers. In that time, Cogent has prided itself on being able to add the greatest amount of value to our customers businesses.

“The success of the last 20 years encourages us to invest in the latest technologies to continually help the dairy and beef industries perform efficiently at global levels. More than ever before, we are keenly focussed on cow performance and fertility through our increasing range of Precision services. We are determined to take heat detection and herd health to an ever improved level.”

“Today Cogent remains the market leader in sexed semen technology with the strongest, most diversified portfolio of bovine genetics and a growing global reach- providing high-quality British product to more than 40 countries. We are very much looking forward to the next 20 years as we continue to work alongside our customers to develop the services that will allow them to manage their businesses more efficiently.”
