Vytelle’s new global headquarters is joining a region with the largest concentration of industry professionals devoted to the health, well-being, and genetic progress of animals, said Kerryann Kocher, announcing the startup’s official move to Lenexa.
“We’re excited to put down roots in the Midwest and call Kansas City home to our global headquarters,” said Kocher, CEO of Vytelle, a precision livestock company reshaping how cattle producers worldwide optimize their herds.
The company previously was based in Hermiston, Oregon.
“The Kansas City-based headquarters will foster both local and global industry collaboration along with accessibility to the customers we serve in the U.S.” Kocher continued. “We thank the animal health and agriculture community of Kansas City for welcoming us.”
Vytelle serves beef and dairy producers in 20 countries through its integrated technology platform built to fast-forward genetic progress for sustainable production.
Its Lenexa headquarters will serve as the primary hub for the company’s global operations including 13 global in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratories, two technology centers, a vast field-based operations and commercial team, and a network of satellite partners.
Today, Vytelle makes hormone-free IVF accessible to 50 percent of the U.S. beef and dairy breeding stock through its network of laboratories. Producers are able to access Vytelle’s bovine hormone-free IVF process by bringing donors to any of the more than 30 satellite locations across the United States or by scheduling an on-farm ovum pick-up.
