How to order genotypes via the genomic ordering screen?

How can I get ram semen genotyped?

If you are ordering a semen sample, you will have the options to order a semen pellet or a straw kit by selecting ‘I already have a semen pellet’ or ‘I already have a semen straw’. When genotyping via semen, it is critical that you indicate if it is a pellet or a straw as the kits are different for each.
