The DNA World Livestock Registry is a free online herd management system powered by BioPet Vet Lab using DNA testing at its core. DNA samples submitted to BioPet Vet Lab will be available for you to run our online parentage tools by simply typing in the animal’s I.D. number. Reports are generated for you to view all results and view progeny by sire.
Cattle Sire Verifier
Use DNA typing to verify every calf’s sire in a multi-sire herd. Select future sires by tracking superior progeny performance and improve pasture management. Protect the integrity of pedigree records by confirming the sire through DNA typing.
- Efficient pasture management
- Improve pregnancy rates
- Economically manage multi-sire herds
- Select future sires by tracking progeny performance
- Increase production while raising calf quality
Cattle Maternal Verifier
Identify the dam of an offspring with DNA typing . Match cows to calves if abandoned or separated. Confirm the calf of a donor cow. This test can also be used as a maternal reference sample to test a post-slaughter beef product if a direct reference sample is not available (or on file).
Cattle Proof of Ownership
Unlike ear tags, brands, or tattoos, DNA is an unalterable form of identification.
Archive a cow’s genetic profile in the DNA World Livestock Registry database and retain proof of ownership and identification throughout the cow’s life and beyond.
The profile can also be used by you as a reference sample to confirm you received the proper post-slaughter meat.
Mating Pair Parentage
An offspring’s DNA profile is compared to potential parent animals to verify parentage. Identifying dams and sires that produce ideal calves will increase production and profits. Identifying both parents is the only way to certify either parent, since an offspring inherits one half of its genetic material from each parent.
Why choose BioPet Mating Pair Parentage testing?
Parentage testing provides you with all the benefits of Sire Verifier
- Test sire, dam, and offspring
- Manage your herd by matching calf to sire
- Determine service performance for each bull
- Add value for DNA validated animals at sale
- Verified records for herd registration on BioPet’s DNA World Livestock Registry
- Match calf to dam in calf abandonment cases
In addition to parentage testing, BioPet will retain your animal’s DNA on file in the DNA World Livestock Registry as proof of identity. Ear-tags, electronic ID, and transponder identification methods can become separated or altered. DNA is the unalterable form of identification.
Why Choose BioPet?
BioPet offers a scientific approach to understanding your herd. Once the sire is registered in the program, its genetic profile can be used for any future Sire Verifier testing. Production and calf quality information can be directly tied to the sire. This program will aid in efficient pasture management leaving fewer open cows. The added value is not only represented in the animals that go to sale, but in the number and quality of the animals that go to sale.
Testing with BioPet is Easy
Ranchers need only take a small blood sample from a needle prick of the animal’s ear and collect it on a DNA collection card provided by BioPet. Ranchers label the cards with the animal’s identification number and mail them back to BioPet for processing. BioPet’s laboratory is stocked with top DNA analyzing equipment which enables us to provide a fast turnaround time.
