HornPoll

A DNA Test for the Poll Gene in Beef Cattle

HornPoll is a new DNA test from Zoetis Genetics that is used to identify the probability of an animal carrying zero, one or two copies of the poll variant of the gene. This simple yet effective DNA test allows for the identification of genetically polled animals and ultimately the removal of horned animals from the herd.
