ABBA offers genomic testing outside of parent verification. Genotypes are highly recommended on any animal, and may be required for animals in an A.I./ET program over the course of the next 5 years.

5 Year DNA Plan – 2023 to 2028
The ABBA board of directors approved a 5 year DNA / genomics plan to elevate our parent verification platform to SNP technology, to offer genomic-enhanced EPDs to commercial and seedstock breeders using Brahman genetics, and to transition to Whole Herd Enrollment by January 1, 2028.
This transition also gives us the opportunity to provide more accuracy and reliability in our EPD figures.
Our goal is to serve all our ABBA members and Brahman breeders. We welcome any questions so that we can help advise you on the best plan for your operation. For more information contact email@example.com.

Our parent verification services will continue during this transition, with all new samples being on an SNP analysis.
