BLOOD TYPING or DNA REQUIREMENTS
One requirement that is generally common for all breed registry associations is that a record of the blood type of each bull used in artificial insemination be on file with the respective breed associations. Whether blood typing or DNA analysis is required, it is the responsibility of the owner of record to make certain that compliance is met. This can be accomplished by asking the breed association to mail a test kit.

Credit card billing can be arranged if payment in this manner is preferred.
