Quantech Solutions provides practical services to implement the use of quantitative genetics, genetic markers and reproductive technologies at commercial farm level to make financially beneficial genetic gains for our customers.

Quantech Solutions work with a number of companies in Europe, North America and Russia. The extent of the involvement varies from providing advice, assisting clients develop their own future development strategy and establishing their own genetic programmes.

We have expert knowledge of animal breeding software such as PigBlup, PEST and VCE.

There are many areas of farming where a pair of “genetic eyes” in addition to your colleagues, veterinarians and nutritionists will provide a beneficial addition to your management. Practical on-farm genetics is about improving financial return. We can help with practically implementing a successful breeding improvement programme for your farm.


Our background in quantitative genetics has necessarily involved the use of statistics. This is applied in the statistical analyses we undertake for clients providing objective information upon which to make data based decisions. Our commercial experience and involvement in agriculture is essential in helping solve problems and to make informed decisions for the future. We have expert knowledge of statistical software such as SAS and R.
