A commercial dynamic at the service of future Limousine genetics
Jean-Luc Kress created KBS GENETIC in 1999 with the support of the Cooperative BOVIDOC-CAPEL based in Corrèze. It has quickly become an essential player in the field of exports of premium pedigree cattle.
KBS GENETIC is recognized as a “breeding company” by the Ministry of Agriculture. It allows us to collect and sell semen and embryos that meet our clients’ specific requirements.
KBS GENETIC works closely with several breeding organisations of the Limousin area. It is also involved with other beef breeds such as Aubrac, Blonde d’Aquitaine, Charolaise and Salers. It has become a leader in the sale of beef breed semen, embryos and live cattle to the whole of Europe and also to Russia, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Australia.
KBS GENETIC has become an expert in the field of polled genetics.
It has initiated the “Polled Excellence” group which gathers some of the best limousin breeders. It encourages them to share and promote their selection work. In the last few years, a group of Salers breeders have started their own polled programme.
KBS GENETIC organises every year a Limousin and an Aubrac Prestige sale which have become much-awaited events both in France and abroad. KBS GENETIC is also in charge of the organisation of the Simagena, the breeding part of the SIMA (professional international agri-business show that takes place every other year in Paris-Nord-Villepinte).
Beppe Pantaleoni is the new manager of KBS GENETIC. He has taken over Jean-Luc Kress in july 2013. He has always shared KBS's goals with his italian company La Stoppa srl.
Jean-Luc Kress will carry on working alongside Beppe for the next few years.
