The “Standalone Full Genetic Test Panel” is suited to testing influential animals within a breeding program, such as sires or donor dams.
Tip: Members whose animals have already had a full genomic profile tested but require the genetic conditions may find this test suitable for their situation.
Please note that the Angus Australia DNA Test Request Forms have been updated to include these tests.
A column has been included titled FULL GENETIC TEST PANEL in both Neogen and Zoetis order forms which is available now on the Angus Australia website.
Zoetis have introduced a standalone test for Horns (HH) and has been updated in the Zoetis DNA Test Request forms.
