Welcome to LIC

As a farmer owned co-operative, it's our vision to improve the prosperity and productivity of our farmers.

Our strategy, Toward 2025 presents our goal to deliver service and solutions to our farmers to enable LIC to be a $1 billion revenue co-operative by 2025. In reaching Toward 2025, LIC will empower farmers with the genetics and information needed to produce superior livestock, information to improve livestock performance, and the hardware and systems that will improve on farm productivity and decision making.  

Internationally, LIC will focus on growth in key markets adding value to our shareholders.

While we present a proud history of world and industry leading innovations in dairy genetics, farm information systems, herd testing, DNA technology and automation, the world does not stand still.

Our challenge is to develop innovative solutions to ensure that our farmers continue to enjoy a competitive edge.

It’s a challenge on which we thrive.
