The Angus Parentage Assurance program highlights sale or semen catalogues listed on the Angus Australia website by vendors who have invested in DNA testing for parentage verification, and who in turn, have improved the integrity of the pedigree, genetic condition and Angus BREEDPLAN EBV information that is displayed for any Angus animals or semen that they are offering for sale.
The parentage assurance program has two different categories, Angus Sire Assured and Angus Parentage Assured.
Angus Sire Assured applies to sale or semen catalogues where all lots have been DNA sire verified, whereas Angus Parentage Assured applies to sale and semen catalogues where all lots have been DNA parent verified (both sire and dam).
Sale and semen catalogues that qualify as either Angus Sire Assured or Angus Parentage Assured are identified on the Angus Australia website with the relevant parentage assurance program logo.
Users of the SaleSELECT and SemenSELECT tools on the Angus Australia website can also limit searches to those catalogues that qualify as either Angus Sire Assured or Angus Parentage Assured when searching for animals or semen that they may wish to purchase.
