Our actions in Research and Development correspond with the Social Development Goals (SDGs) objective #9 concerning the industry, innovation, and infrastructure.
At VikingGenetics, we have a clear strategy to support and invest in Research and Development, and we have signed various agreements with other research entities to achieve benefits for farmers.
We have a long, strong and expanding background in collaboration with university partners in Denmark, Finland, and Sweden. This work extends across VikingGenetics’ activities, from whether to purchase a bull to predicting breeding values.
Research for the benefit of your farm
Most recently, the collaboration has manifested in the CFIT (Cattle Feed Intake System) 3D cameras project where VikingGenetics and the entities involved obtained financial support from the Danish Innovation Fund.
The budget will be utilized to develop a commercial product that can be used to register feed intake individually.
This data can be used to generate breeding values for feed intake and efficiency, which is one of the most wanted breeding values among dairy farmers today.
