IHFA provide a DNA parentage testing service to its members facilitated by the Weatherbys Ireland laboratory in Naas, Co Kildare. This service aims to verify the parentage of an animal and is a mandatory requirement when registering a bull calf intended for breeding purposes. It can also be used to establish the sire of an female/male animal where the sire is unknown or in doubt.
A DNA testing kit is available, upon request from our office.
