The Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN), of Wageningen UR conserves semen of Dutch farm animal breeds in the gene bank to secure as much genetic diversity as possible. CGN manages gene bank collections of breeds of cattle, pigs, horses, sheep, goats, poultry, dogs, ducks, geese and rabbits. Both rare breeds and more common, widely used breeds are represented in the gene bank collections.
