Belgimex together with Henry Broers founded in July 2004 the cooperative Genetique Avenir Belgimex (GAB), a production- and distribution center for semen of Belgian Blue Breed (BBB).
The collaboration was initiated after the fusion of Haliba and Linalux. The different breeders of the Board of Directors preferred to avoid a monopoly of the Belgian Blue breed. This Board of Directors heads our company. Belgimex became the main shareholder of GAB in 2007. Today, about 20 to 25 sires are present in our cooperative located in Wuustwezel (province of Antwerp).
In our cooperative for artificial insemination, we try to maintain a high-quality and broad selection from profitable sires. This way we want to reach as many as possible farmers without having to renounce our background.
The sires selection is done by a purchasing commission of five breeders that originate form different provinces from our country. Our team of representatives supports this group.
The production of high-quality semen is our main aim. And our Board of Directors is very unambiguous on this matter: Quality stands before quantity. Our guidelines must improve the development of the Belgian WhiteBlue breed.
To improve the evolution of the Belgian Belgian Blue breed. And to help farmers with the optimization of animal breeding programs in terms of quality, weight, size, rusticity, vitality, … Only this way we can distinguish ourselves from other breeds.
A future-orientated and progressive approach to settle in the world of the Belgian Blue.
To deliver the best service and give good advice for our farmers; that will be the main aim of our representatives.
The management of our company lies in the hands of breeders. Therefore, all decisions and orientations will be driven from the point of view of the farmer. We are a young team but with essential experience, dynamism, and always at your service.
A trust in our products and semen production. Favorable results from our sirens at competitions and in diverse genetic reports. This has become our visiting card after only a few years of activity.
