DNA lab expands in Middleton

Genetic Visions-ST LLC plans a $2 million expansion of its bovine and livestock reproduction laboratory in Middleton that will create 21 new jobs over the next three years.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. authorized up to $100,000 in state income tax credits for the expansion, with the actual amount contingent upon the number of jobs created over the next three years.

Genetic Visions was one of the first companies to offer DNA marker testing to dairy and beef producers to help manage herds.
