DNA upgrading and Sire Verification

DNA upgrading and Sire Verification


After a lot of work behind the scenes, today the Registration Department is sending out the information for the Sire Verification program and DNA testing of potential young stock bulls to the full membership. We urge you to take advantage of this service – remember it is free to test registered bulls destined for commercial herds born 2015 and 2016 on low density SNPs and £25 for those you wish to keep for pedigree use. Once you receive your email or form in the post, if you have any queries please contact registration on 01738 622477, or email Caroline, Fiona or Yvonne on the following email addresses:




This is an exciting and progressive step forward for the breed and we look forward to the input of breeders.
