Cogent counts down to Futures competition – Cowsmo

Cogent counts down to Futures competition

The deadline is fast approaching for entry into the Cogent Futures programme 2015. 

 The annual competition, which provides an extensive introduction to genetics and gives participants a taste of life as a Sire Analyst, is open to all cattle breeding enthusiasts aged 16 – 26.

As part of the experience, candidates will visit a range of dairy herds throughout the UK as well as being in with the chance of winning an elite Holstein embryo package and an all-inclusive trip to Holland.

Owain Harries, Cogent’s Genetic Procurement Manager, said: “The Cogent Futures programme is a wonderful opportunity for budding geneticists, sire analysts and devotees of cattle breeding to learn vital skills and get a true taste of genetics.  The competition is now in its sixth year and I have seen it go from strength-to-strength.

The Futures programme offers a real opportunity for participants to shape both their own futures and the future of cattle breeding.”
