POLICYUPDATE

DNA Breed Profile Testing Rate Structure Change

GREAT NEWS – The cost for DNA Breed Profile testing, required for all Duroc, Landrace, Hampshire, and Yorkshire boars siring purebred litters, has been reduced to $70 per sample. If you submit your DNA samples within 6 months from the date of sale (for purchased boars) or 12 months from birth (for raised boars), your DNA Breed Profile testing cost will be reduced to $70 per sample. If you submit your DNA sample more than 6 months from the date of purchase, or over 12 months of age, your fees will be assessed based on the rate schedule below. This policy will not affect retested samples – the fee will be based on the original submission date. For members testing small pigs or females, the rate will be $70.
