Hello, I’m Alison,

I am the Managing Director of Mastergen.

I have worked in the AI industry now for over 18 years and in that time, I have had the privilege of working with some of the best bulls and best suppliers in the world.

Mastergen was incorporated in 2014 and I have had the honour and privilege of watching the business flourish and expand in a very short space of time. The business is built on exceptional product from variety of reliable studs, a fantastic loyal and professional team of breeding advisors and a passion for breeding great cows.

Anna McLauchlan

Senior Account Manager
 

Hello, I’m Anna,

I’ve worked for companies in the AI industry as a breeding advisor for over 13 years, 5 of which were with Dairy Daughters.

I really enjoy the ever-changing pace of the market and I am especially interested in genomics and new technology.

I also love talking to my customers and discussing their breeding needs. It is really satisfying finding bulls to match the criteria and being able to supply them at a competitive price.

Mastergens range of Holsteins and beef are excellent and I am confident we can find you exactly what you are looking for at a fair price.

I also help keep our websiteFacebookTwitter and YouTube sites up to date so be sure to check in and like us to keep up to date with all the latest information!

I am currently on maternity leave having given birth to my gorgeous boy Teddy. Whilst I am away Kim Price will be stepping in to take care of my customers.
