Genetic improvement and the business of artificial insemination to disseminate high quality genetics relies heavily on talented and passionate individuals that are often highly educated. Yet, our industry is dealing with a supply issue. More people are retiring than are joining our industry.
This is happening in a time where bright new talent is more important than ever. The global population is growing and will need to be fed with less resources. The sustainable production of animal protein will become essential and genetics play a large role in achieving this goal.
To keep our industry feeding the world like it has done for decades will require more students to be trained and placed in various positions within AI organizations as well as scientific institutions and Government.
This Foundation is developed to offer you the possibility to leave a legacy by supporting a talented student to pursue a career in the industry that we are all passionate about, for the benefit of everyone in a changing and challenging world.
