The co-op has pioneered some of the biggest innovations that provide today’s farmers with their competitive edge on the world stage, including the systematic testing of milk quality, Long Last Liquid (fresh) semen, DNA technology to genomically identify and select elite sires, and more recently, a bull team bred to deliver offspring an average of 10 days early.
Today, LIC’s commitment to farmer prosperity and productivity continues, with genetics to create superior livestock; information to improve decision making; hardware and systems to improve productivity; and LIC International – adding value for shareholders, focussing on key markets. Strong investment into research and development also continues, to deliver on future farmer needs.
LIC is proud to sponsor Dairy Women’s Network and support the development of women in dairying. We look forward to working with DWN to support learning initiatives and work more closely with rural women to understand how we can better support them to excel in their own businesses and goals.
