Press release: Neogen
Neogen Corporation recently announced that it is collaborating with the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA), a leading authority in feline advocacy.
The relationship centers around Neogen’s My CatScan DNA testing services, with the aim of advancing the genomic products available to CFA members through marketing, education, and promotion of Neogen technology and products.
“We are excited about this relationship with the Cat Fanciers’ Association,” said Dr. Robert Westra, associate medical director at Neogen. “This strategic collaboration will not only advance feline DNA testing but also strengthen the bond between Neogen and the feline community. Both Neogen and CFA look forward to a successful collaboration, driving innovation and awareness in the field of feline genetics.”
“Preservation breeding is about careful selection based on ancestry and, most importantly, health and genetic traits,” said Desiree Bobby of CFA. “Neogen’s My CatScan product screens for over 120 feline health risks and genetic traits and provides data that our breeders need to meticulously shape new generations of pedigreed cats.”

CFA’s mission is to preserve and promote the pedigreed breeds of cats and to enhance the well-being of all cats.
