AGBU is a joint venture between the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and University of New England (UNE). For 40 years AGBU has been researching the genetics of livestock and how to breed better animals and plants and we are regarded as one of the world leaders in R&D of genetic evaluation systems for cattle and sheep.

Using massive datasets on animals and plants worldwide and creating highly complicated algorithms, our team delivers knowledge and tools that help breeders identify the best animals and plants. Through our partners, this information is then made available and useful for breeders and producers in all industries.
