Who are we ?

N°1 in France, n°2 in Europe and n°6 in the world for animal genetics, EVOLUTION is the union of the 3 principal bovine genetics cooperatives in the West of France: Amélis, Génoé and Urcéo.

Created on 1st January 2013, the cooperative is active in the bovine sectors (dairy and beef breeds), pigs, horses, goats, as well as in rabbit and fish farming. With more than 28 000 breeders in 2018, EVOLUTION produced more than 6 million bovine doses and carried out more than 2.68 million Total Animal Inseminations (TAI).

Faithful to its co-operative nature, EVOLUTION’s main aim is to guide and support farmers to contribute, together, to nutritional and environmental challenges at worldwide level and to ensure the continued existence of the enterprise and livestock farms for future generations. For this, EVOLUTION stands out by a strategy strongly turned towards innovation and the international dimension, levers for the future for French breeders.

Today EVOLUTION strongly emphasizes customer focus. What does customer focus imply? For us, in our business it means constantly asking the question, “Will what I’m doing bring greater benefit to the customer, directly or indirectly?”. We know this is the surest way to keep on giving our members and customers the best we can offer towards attaining the performance they seek.
