Samples, fees & testing results:

  1. All samples (hair or semen) are to be sent to the official Laboratory. (Note: semen straws do not have to be frozen but need to be protected from breakage). All payments are to be sent to the Executive Director at the above address. No results will be released until payment has been received. Payment total will be included in the kit.

  2. The test results are sent to the Executive Director, recorded then forwarded to the member. All DNA test results that are needed for registration, AI bulls semen certificates and embryo transfer animals and their dams are forwarded to CLRC. If you have any questions regarding applying for a test kit, please contact the Executive Director by email, phone or letter.
