JSR Genetics Ltd. signed a 1,100-animal contract with Guangzhou Animal Husbandry Company as part of the UK and China Business Summit.

JSR hopes to use the animals to accelerate growth in the Asian market. “We have identified Asia as a major target for JSR and have already succeeded in establishing thriving nucleus herds in Japan, Korea and Vietnam," said JSR International Sales Director Paul Anderson. "Now, we are working hard to realize opportunities and develop our presence in both China and Taiwan, working with UK Trade and investment support, which has been hugely beneficial.”


Shipment of the animals is expected in early 2011.
