Igenity and Tri-Merit offer a new and comprehensive information package

Igenity and Global Animal Management (GAM) joined forces to provide producers with the first-ever option to combine information from a comprehensive DNA profile with health, source and age records in one package.

“Now, producers can merge the inside information from Igenity with calf health, source and age verification records all in one place,” says Dr. Stewart Bauck, executive director of research and development, Igenity. “This partnership is a continuation of user-friendly solutions Igenity and GAM have brought to the beef industry.”

Tri-Merit is a data management tool that can be used to certify traditional health processes as well as verify age, source and movement of individual cattle. By linking Tri- Merit with Igenity, producers can now store a wealth of information about their cattle in one system. Bauck adds that the combination tissue collection device and radio frequency identification tag available from Igenity is compliant with Tri-Merit—adding another level of convenience for producers.
