Standard Procedures for DNA

DNA Testing and Reporting 

On June 5, 2011 the ABA Board of Directors passed Standard Procedures for DNA Testing and Reporting of Results. To view this policy, click here. These procedures will apply any time an animal is supposed to be stress negative, but does not stress test as negative. This includes an animal tested at a Team Purebred junior show (all Champion and Reserve barrow, gilts and market hogs will be tested in 2011), any animal that is purchased at an ABA show/sale or purchased private treaty.
