Use Genomics to Unlock Herd Potential

The CIS Genomic service enables you to find the animals with the greatest potential in your herd through hair or tissue samples.

Our Genomics service is offered without any contracts keeping it simple to use and tests can be ordered through the herd management programme YourHerd.

Results are available on YourHerd and the MobileHerd app.

The results give you the potential to develop traits such as longevity, fertility and disease resistance.

Genomic testing is available for Ayrshire, British Friesian, Jersey, Guernsey and Holstein breeds.
