Thermo Regulatory Genetics Limited (TRG) was formed in 2018. The company purchased the breeding programme from Dairy Solutionz (NZ) Limited and has injected capital to globalize the tropical bull team. The 500 animal NZ breeding nucleus, consisting of animals milked in New Zealand since 2011, spans several different bloodlines from US Holstein, to Crossbreed to Jersey. This allows for the development and selection of the best fit genetics for the farming systems and the relative degree of heat stress of our tropical farming clients.

The Slick gene is present in several dairy clusters around the world, across NZ, the USA, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Tanzania and Mozambique. Thermo Regulatory Genetics Limited has lead the development of the Slick nucleus in many of these markets and offers an outcross for those with established herd momentum.

Thermo Regulatory Genetics Limited owns the world’s first Homozygous dairy cross breed bulls born in 2015, Pathos, Eros and Himeros, and owns the world’s largest and most diverse Homozygous bull team genotypes for future farmer confidence in the breeding development. Furthermore, Thermo Regulatory Genetics has a signed strategic alliance with the University of Florida, to support the University team leading research in the space of heat-tolerant genetics led by Dr Pete Hansen.
