- Who are we ?
Developed for nearly 60 years by our founding cooperatives and our partners, the Holstein breed benefits from particularly thorough control by our field teams… EVOLUTION is developing know-how which has provided world references such as Jocko Besné, Ugela Bell, Besné Buck, Dombinator, Heldostar, Gibbon, Survivor, Gelpro, Negundo, Restell and more recently Stol Joc, Créol Toy, Ehman Isy or Hammig Isy, Isitolo…
To support the advice given by the technicians, several guidance and training solutions have also been developed by EVOLUTION:
XP Lait is a total approach to accompany herd replacement. Relying in particular on innovative computer tools specifically developed by EVOLUTION, it optimizes matings so that the animals are the best medium and long term answer to the breeder’s objectives.
XPerf is EVOLUTION’s answer to female genotyping.
Because female genotyping is only profitable if it is used correctly, the EVOLUTION technicians support the breeders in their choices: Which female to choose? For what reasons? What genotyping strategy should I adopt in my farm?...
To find out more about the opportunities provided by genotyping, farmers are also offered a training program: Ypsum.
The purpose of Ypsum, the very first training program designed for livestock farmers, is to accompany the farmers in the construction of their own replacement strategy, in particular by better control of the new reproduction and genetic technologies (genotyping, sexed semen, monitoring, focus on genomics…).
This innovative training program has also been followed in its condensed version by all of the EVOLUTION technicians so that each of them can give information of the same quality to all farmers.
