$20 Genomic test including parentage
This project marks a major investment from the ASA towards research and development. The $15 test is only available for the first 15,000 samples with phenotypes submitted. There is no estimate of when the results will be available on samples submitted. Donor cows and bulls do not qualify. No additional DNA tests are available with this offer.
Leoma Wells, ASA's DNA and Total Herd Enrollment (THE) Specialist, will transition from DNA Services to ASA's point person for the Cowherd DNA Roundup project. When asked about the transition, Wells says, "I am excited and grateful to be a part of this revolutionary project. It combines two of my favorite areas, DNA and data collection on females. The wheels are turning and I absolutely can't wait to get started and smash the goals we have set." In September, ASA will welcome Carolyn Wild to the DNA department to help with the daily DNA services.
Contact Leoma Wells or Jackie Atkins for more information 406-587-4531.
