DNA and Parentage Verification
DBCAA rules require all bulls to be DNA typed. When breeders
register or transfer a bull, include $30 for DNA typing in addition to
the registration fee. The secretary will then send you a submission
form to send to VGL lab at UC-Davis.
The Association also reserves the right to spot check any
registered animal when deemed necessary. DNA typing service is
also available to breeders for parentage verification. Click here for DNA Policy.To submit DNA samples, the owner collects the hair sample, attaches it to the submission form, and mails it back to
the VGL (taping the sample to the kit page).
Results are then mailed or e-mailed to the owner.
