Signed on Thursday 21th September 2007 in Martonvasaar, head office of the Hungarian company, the agreement follows the logic of co-sampling partnership working for several years between the 2 companies. The agreement provides for a participation of Genes Diffusion Group up to 20% in Bos Genetic capital.

In a country gathering 250 000 Holstein cows (*), Bos Genetic does represent 40 % of the Hungarian market of bovine artificial insemination (all races together).

With a testing program of 40 Holstein bulls per year (12 of them in co-sampling with Genes Diffusion), Bos Genetic represents 50% of the Hungarian bulls-sampling.

Its semen collection center is well known being one of the most advanced European centers in the field of bio-security.

By this agreement, Genes Diffusion Group strengthens its partnership policy introduced since very long in Central Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia).

(*) Hungary is characterized by industrial farms, with an average of 350 cows per cattle-breeding.
