Angus Australia has launched a brand-new module in the Angus Education Centre that assists members in the collection and submission of DNA samples. This module outlines the best-practice collection, storage and submission guidelines for each sample type as well as providing helpful links and tips. 

Genomic testing is a valuable tool available to Angus Australia members. The technology has a range of important applications, from confirming parentage or genetic conditions through to enhancing Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs). 

The technology, which looks at the genomic profile carried by the animal relies on the collection of a DNA sample.  

Considering the time and expense involved in collecting DNA samples, ensuring that samples are collected, stored and submitted correctly is of utmost importance.  

Angus Australia currently accepts three types of DNA samples; 

  • Tissue 
  • Hair 
  • Semen
