today's dairy farmer, we have successfully developed a breeding programme
founded on production, type, and reliability.
Cogent was the pioneer of sexed semen technology and continues its work today to improve the process and research and develop new technologies, which will aid the modern farming business.
Cogent was founded in 1995. Its origins come from the working farms of His Grace the Duke of Westminster's Eaton Estate in Cheshire. It had become clear that increasing putting more and more animals on a limited amount of agricultural land was no longer sustainable and that UK farming needed a new way to improve productivity and the quality of the national herd.
the business has come a long way since its farm beginnings and is now one of
the UK's leading suppliers of bovine genetics with a growing global reach-
currently providing high-quality British product to some 40 countries
However, despite its ongoing success and international reputation for technological innovation, it remains committed to farmers and works closely in partnership with them to ensure that its high-quality products make an effective contribution to a farm's productivity and profitability regardless of its size or location.
