DNA Testing
AGBA Members are currently required to DNA test their bull calves before registration.
There is the opportunity for members to have their bull calves sire verified and parents verified.
In order to be parent verified, then the dams would need to have a DNA test completed on them as well. This can all be done through Zoetis and would require members to pull tail hairs from the dams as well as the calves.
For more information, contact the office.
