LIC has agreed to divest the LIC Automation business to MSD Animal Health.
As part of the sale, the suite of Protrack automation and sensing technology products will join Allflex Livestock Intelligence.
The sale is in line with our refined strategy, and will allow us to sharpen our focus and play to our strengths delivering world-leading pasture based dairy genetics and herd management for New Zealand farmers.
We will work with Allflex to support customers through the transition to make the handover as smooth as possible.
What’s included in the sale?
The suite of Protrack automation and sensing technology products will join Allflex.
The transaction includes:
- Continued migration onto new generation Protrack systems for customers with legacy technology, as well as associated software development
- LIC to continue providing service and support to customers through transition
- Ongoing interaction between Protrack operating systems and LIC’s herd management system, MINDA.
- Access to data generated from the automation technology for LIC, to continue to support the co-op’s research and development activities.
Both companies will work together to support you through the transition and make the handover as smooth as possible.
