"Now you get a prediction of the genetic merit on an animal as soon as it's born, and you can begin making matings of that animal much earlier," says Jonathan Lightner, the chief scientific officer of the bovine genetics company Genus, which sells frozen bull semen internationally.
In vitro fertilization (IVF), though not a new technology by any means, has also caught on in the cattle-breeding industry recently. Lightner says IVF has opened up opportunities for selecting females' genes; historically, genetic improvement in cattle was driven by the males' genetics because a male can produce thousands of offspring, while a female will have only a handful of calves in her lifetime. "With in vitro fertilization she can have 100 or 200 calves," nearly always through surrogates, says Lightner.
