DNA TESTING PROGRAMS AVAILABLE!

     The TLBAA Board of Directors approved a completely voluntary DNA Parentage Verification testing program for our breeders.  This is separate from the already established AI Herd Sire Certification program
     To verify parentage of an animal, the animal in question tail hairs must be pulled and DNA tested and then DNA markers are compared to the sire and dam's DNA markers.  If sire and dam have not been tested with a case number established of their DNA Markers to use in the comparison, then they also must have their tail hairs pulled and their DNA compared to the animal in question.  Once parentage has been verified through this DNA testing process, and if the animal in question is already registered, then a new registration certificate will be issued with the "PARENTAGE VERIFIED WITH DNA" stamp/logo on it.  If not registered, then the Parentage Verified with DNA stamp/logo will appear on its registration certificate when registered.  If sire and dam have already been DNA tested and a case number exists, then they will not have to be tested. Each DNA test costs $40 and if sire & dam already have been tested with a case file, then there is no charge for them, only the animal in question.
     Some of our breeders are having their animals DNA tested without parentage verification just to have their DNA Case number on file; should questions arise or should they decide to have their entire herd eventually parent verified.
     Forms for Parentage Verification and DNA Markers only are attached. Once completed forms are received at the office the "DNA Tail Hair Kit Forms" will be generated and sent to you with an instruction sheet.  DO NOT MAIL TAIL HAIRS TO THE TLBAA OFFICE, THEY MUST GO TO UC DAVIS IN CALIFORNIA PER THE INSTRUCTION SHEET.
     Have questions? Contact Rick at the TLBAA office 817-625-6241 or rick@tlbaa.org, dana@tlbaa.org
