Canadian First

At WestGen we take great pride in promoting western causes, but we are Canadian first. As we reflect on 150 years of Canada we marvel that WestGen has been there to witness nearly half of it – including nearly our entire post-WWII rise in prominence as a nation.

Working together is our strength – including building the world’s most sustainable milk marketing model and semen sharing agreements that evolved furthering into the Semex partnership that all our members own a part of and whose existence has allowed a small dairy nation to play a disproportionate role on the world stage. The Canadian genetics industry has led and innovated through developments like the Immunity+ brand and most recently, by another first in the global market: commercially available genomically tested IVF embryos.

We are all proud of our families, our villages and towns, our local and national sports heroes. We cheer the accomplishments of the sons and daughters of our neighbours when they achieve greatness on the national and even global stage. In so doing we acknowledge that above all else we are proud to be Canadian. Indeed – we are Canadian first.

At WestGen we are proud of our local heritage and of the west’s contribution to the national and global stage. We believe fundamentally in our social responsibilities to contribute to making our next generation of dairy producers even better equipped to lead and innovate. After all we are Canadian first.

We are also proud to celebrate our first Anniversary at our home in Abbotsford after over 70 years in Langley on July 1. Happy Anniversary to all of our Owners, our Directors and the WestGen team.

Happy Birthday Canada!
