B+LNZ Genetics

B+LNZ Genetics was established in 2014 to consolidate New Zealand’s sheep and beef genetics research and innovation into a single entity as a division of B+LNZ.

B+LNZ Genetics exists to help commercial farmers make the most profitable breeding decisions for their particular farm management system. It does this by ensuring breeding objectives are commercially focused and developing easy-to-use selection tools.

B+LNZ Genetics is funded by sheep and beef levy payers and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. It is supported by additional investment from third parties, including meat processors, breed societies and commercial entities interested in sheep and beef genetics and genomics.
