During this difficult time and ever-evolving situation, as we all face the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know that Progressive Genetics is taking a prudent approach while remaining committed to you, our customer.


We will continue to serve you in whatever capacity possible, whilst maintaining the health and safety of your operation, your employees and our staff. All of our staff have been issued with a standard operating procedure designed to protect staff, customers and the general public, as directed by the HSE.


We have made the decision to temporarily suspend our manual milk recording service until the 30th March 2020, the EDIY milk recording service will continue.


Our breeding advisors will continue deal with customers either by pre-arranged visit (if required) adhering to strict hygiene protocols or remotely via phone (or other digital means). Our AI Technicians will continue to visit farms, as will our delivery and our nitrogen servicing drivers. 


We would be grateful if you could please alert us immediately if you yourself, a member of the farm household or farm staff has a confirmed or suspected case of Corona Virus or is in self-isolation, ideally we would ask that you would use one of these three preferred methods of contact, contact your local Progressive Genetics Representative, call the call centre on 1850 20 20 50 or email Emma Behan on


In accordance with HSE guidelines if any of our staff develop any symptoms they will immediately self-isolate. The welfare of our staff and customers, and that of their families, is the top priority.


In these unprecedented times we will continue to review and update all our customers, but if we can help you in any way please do not hesitate to contact your local Progressive Genetics representative.


Thank you for your support and co-operation in these extraordinary times.
