Genomnz provides a fast and efficient service for DNA parentage testing for cattle. DNA testing will increase accuracy in your herd records allowing you to maximise genetic gain and reduce manual recording costs. With the increased accuracy of your records, you will be able to make better breeding and management decisions, keeping the best animals to increase the value of your herd.

Last year GenomNZ introduced a more advanced Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) based profiling technology. The 10K SNP included the 200 SNPS from ISAG parentage panel as well as specific genetic defects and production traits under validation.

This spring GenomNZ will be offering two cattle parentage options:

The $25.00 /sample (+GST) Parentage test (200 SNPs):

  • Parentage assignment
  • Single gene reporting
  • Client ownership of the 200 SNP genotypes and DNA samples
  • New Zealand based storage of DNA and database storage of genotypes

The $35.00/sample (+GST) Parentage Plus (7000 SNPs):

  • Parentage assignment
  • Single gene reporting
  • Client ownership of the 7000 SNP genotypes and DNA samples
  • New Zealand based storage of DNA and database storage of genotypes
