In 2010, the American Simmental Association and the Red Angus Association of America coalesced around the goal of better serving International Genetic Solutions (IGS).

Today, IGS is a collaboration of 12 progressive breed associations that have put self-interest aside to focus on the needs of the commercial cattle producer.
With over 16,000,000 total animals and 400,000+ new animals added annually, IGS has the largest multi-breed genetic evaluation system in the world — a system that provides commercial producers with the most powerful and user-friendly selection tools that have ever existed.
