Ag World International Corp is pleased to announce its merger with Bio-Genics LLC as of November 1, 2013. As a leading genetics and livestock exporter since 1977, Ag World has provided top genetics in 110 countries worldwide. With this venture Bio-Genics will now become Bio-Genics LLC, an Illinois based company. Bio-Genic’s current level of excellent customer service will be maintained during the transition. Combining the resources of Ag World and Bio-Genics is designed to improve service and increase genetic selection for customers of both companies to meet the growing globe demand.
On August 28th of 2019 Ag World International Corp purchased the Renco Corporation. Renco Corporation was founded in 1961 as a manufacturer of various products including biomedical devices. In 1975 Renco learned that there was a market opportunity for early pregnancy detection in swine and began utilizing their scientific learnings and resources to develop ultrasonic instrumentation to fill that need. Since that time, Renco has expanded product offerings to develop and manufacture instruments to measure backfat and loin thickness, as well as developing several multi-functional devices which help the end user maximize time, resources and profits.
Additionally, as the product assortment has grown, Renco instruments have proven effective for use in cattle, sheep, goats, and alpacas. Renco instruments have been used by researchers working with other mammals and animals to measure blubber in seals, pregnancy testing in porpoise and breast measurement in poultry.
Today, Renco products are in use in over 120 countries and have become the industry standard. As the world’s premier manufacturer of ultrasonic instrumentation for agriculture, we believe that the Renco brand name will be familiar to those who are involved with commercial animal production worldwide.
Ag World has long been the international distributor of Renco ultrasound products and has had a long and fruitful relationship with Renco. We are proud to bring them into our family of offerings for the global livestock genetics market.
