ABOUT IND DAIRYTECH LIMITED
IND, through its operating subsidiaries, is an emerging raw milk producer in China that is seeking to become a leading provider of high quality raw milk to the Chinese dairy industry. To meet China's increasing demand for dairy products, the Company is using Canadian cattle genetics and North American farming practices to establish and develop its dairy herd in China. The Company plans to develop its herd in China through the use of advanced breeding techniques employing Canadian Holstein embryos that it intends to use to impregnate surrogate cows. These embryos have been created through in vitro fertilization using sexed semen to achieve an approximate 90% female birth rate. The use of these advanced breeding techniques is expected to allow the Company to rapidly expand its herd. The use of Canadian Holstein embryos also provides a practical solution to China's ban on the import of live Canadian cattle.
