Birchwood Genetics operates three PIC Gene Transfer Centers in different states in order to provide cost-effective delivery of fresh boar semen and associated supplies for swine artificial insemination. From our processing centers in Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan, product is couriered via our own Direct Delivery® service into a five-state area, as well as shipped via AirDirect™ (same-day airline shipments) and overnight delivery services throughout the United States.
The Synergy GTC processing center is located in western Ohio and is also home to our administrative and sales offices. This facility has been the source of elite swine genetics since 1979, offering boar semen beginning in 1982. Sue Steele serves as the Lab Manager.
Birchwood Genetics acquired the Genesis GTC processing center in 2005. Located in the rolling hills of southern Kentucky, product is distributed both regionally and nationally. Griff Tomlin serves as the Operations Manager.
Opened in 2008, Harmony GTC is the most recent addition to the Birchwood boar stud network and is located in southern Michigan. Servicing both commercial and specialized breeding programs, Mindy Barden serves as the Operations Manager.
