British Livestock Genetics Consortium
BLG is a National pan-industry consortium covering the farm animal breeding sector, formed to assist in the development and maintenance of profitable long-term business generated by exports of British livestock and genetics. BLG aims to do this by creating a positive, favourable image in international markets and promoting Britain as a supplier of high quality breeding animals, semen and embryos.
See the About us page for download information in different languages.
The livestock sectors covered by BLG members include: Alpacas, Beef and Dairy Cattle, Goats, Pigs, Sheep, Livestock consultancy, Export arrangements and shipments.
BLG doesn’t trade directly itself – that is done by the Members, it is a not-for-profit organisation. Trade enquiries can be directed to the Members (see The Members pages) or to BLG via the Contact Us page when they will be passed on to relevant suppliers.
On the website the News items are updated frequently and are a good source of topical news from the livestock breeding sector.
The International Show Diary is a key to the principal livestock events around the world and also informs of forthcoming events where there is some British involvement.
(If there is an important event that we haven't listed, please contact us with details.)
