SDHA cost-share for Genomic Testing
High Accuracy Bulls Sought, Cost-Share Option Available During
the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board meeting the Board discussed its
continued commitment to DNA testing more high accuracy sires. Hereford breeders
who have a bull that does not have a genomic-enhanced expected progeny
difference (GE-EPD), has a weaning weight accuracy of better than .50 and was
born in 2001 or after, can contact Toni Shapiro at the AHA office, and the AHA
will pay $40 of the total to have the bull DNA tested.
A list of high-use Hereford sires that the Association would
like tested has been generated. To see if a bull you own is on that list,
contact Jack Ward, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed
improvement, at email@example.com or at
In addition to the American Hereford Association's program the
South Dakota Hereford Association, Inc. would like to provide cost share
assistance. In an effort to increase accuracy in South Dakota bred bulls the
SDHA will provide an additional $40.00 per bull to help with testing costs.
Invoices must be submitted prior to June 2013 and the program has a $4,000
budget with funds distributed on a first come first serve basis. All invoices
need to be mailed or e-mailed to Phil Eggers prior to the deadline. If the
budget is spent prior to the deadline notice will be sent to the membership to
notify the program's end.
Please check with the American Hereford Association for
deadlines and restrictions to their program or call or e-mail myself or Jack
Ward anytime with questions.
