DNA Testing

DNA Testing

The administration of DNA testing is one of the member services offered by the Society and is a simple process involving the taking of a tail hair sample and analysing the genetic profile.

All males must be DNA tested to confirm sire and myostatin status prior to full pedigree registration.

The testing of breeding females is encouraged for authentication of pedigree records and for myostatin status.

For any further information on DNA testing and pricing please contact the SDHBS office. To request a DNA test kit please use the form below.

Further information about genetic testing and breeding implications can be found on the Technical page of the website.
