What to do if I used DNA Combo Tags at birth?

Any breeder using DNA combo tags at birth, needs first to order the genomic service.

This needs to be done BEFORE posting the samples to the lab, because if not, the lab can’t process the samples and delays can cause DNA sample quality loss.

How to order via Sheep Ireland’s for getting the tag discount and avoid paying and receiving a second one?

Go to:
