At USLGE, our mission is to better serve world markets with superior livestock genetics from leading, progressive livestock breeders in the United States.
Who We Are
U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, Inc. (USLGE) is a nonprofit, nationwide trade association that brings together a broad base of U.S. livestock organizations. We represent the international marketing interests of the dairy, beef, swine, horse, and small ruminant (sheep and goats) breeding industries. Our members also include the embryo and semen industries, livestock export sector, and State Departments of Agriculture.
How USLGE Can Help
USLGE members match international producers with sources in the United States that offer genetics with superior credentials. The combined resources of USLGE members include most major species and breeds — resources that are unmatched by any other single organization. This unique broad-based team offers you more sources for superior performance-oriented genetics than any other group in the world. USLGE works as a one-stop center to make your genetic selection process easier, more efficient, and more productive.
Support for Maximizing Your Return on Investment
Our main goal is to export superior livestock genetics. However, we also provide technology and service to support your investment. We are ready to direct you to the breed association, export company, or government agency that offers the technology and services for you to be successful in your country.

By matching international producers with leading, progressive U.S. livestock breeders and providing educational and technical support, USLGE strives to ensure a continued safe, secure, and nutritious food supply while balancing the preservation of land and natural resources with economic growth and profitability for all.
