Step 3 – Ensure you have good quality roots collected. DNA is held in the root. The success of the lab test reflects on the quality of your sample

Finally - Check that the tag number of the calf corresponds to the ID No. on the hair card / DNA bag

Note: Hairs extracted from other parts of the coat will result in a poor DNA sample!
