New Prices for Limousin Genetic Tests Announced

The North American Limousin Foundation announced new prices for genetic testing. Of particular note, is the new price for genomic-enhanced EPDs coming in at $60 or $55 if bundled with another test. As the price of genomic-enhanced EPDs continues to decrease, it becomes more attractive for producers to test larger numbers of animals.

Other reminders:
DNA Results are sent to NALF from the lab every Thursday,  results are then processed in the NALF system and available to members on Fridays.
NALF only registers ET calves off of the DNA test request form. Any natural calves must be submitted on a natural calf registration application.
February 15th is the deadline to submit data to be included in the next genetic evaluation (calculation of EPDs).
