DNA Testing

DNA Sample Collection

Please note that DNA testing can NOT tell you what breed of goat you have nor the amounts of various breeds that might make up the composite of your animal. 

DNA can only tell you if the goat in question is the offspring of two specific parents.  To test for parentage you will need to submit samples of both the suspect Sire/Sires and the Dam as well as the offspring in question.

DNA testing done by the lab at UC DAVIS is acceptable for DNA verification or archive on animals registered with Pedigree International.

Orders for DNA testing may be placed at http://www.vgl.ucdavis.edu/myvgl
