DNA Testing & Sample Submission

Turning a hair sample or a few drops of blood into a decision-making tool is the exciting result of genomic testing. Our testing procedure is a succinct process that helps you gather results in a timely manner, and more effectively manage livestock for maximized decision-making and profitability.

Accuracy of results and the length of time it takes for your results to arrive depend on the quality of the sample submitted. Please make sure to check the order form for your entire DNA-testing needs.
