What is genotyping and why is it important?

Dr Alan Bohan of Sheep Ireland discusses the benefits of genoytping animals and how you can use it as a tool to drive genetic gain in your flock. In the video below he discusses what genotyping is, what the benefits of genotyping are, as well as the process and costs involved in genotyping an animal.

All genotypes need to be ordered on the Sheep Ireland website, the video below gives a step by step guide to ordering genotypes online.


To check out your results once you send your genotypes off to the laboratory, please go to your ‘Genomics Results’ report on your Sheep Ireland account, see helpful video below illustrating where to go once you log in to your account.
