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.
