Dexter News

Dear ADCA Members,

Enclosed in this mailing you will find a proposal for genotyping heifer calves that will move the American Dexter Cattle Association to a fully parent verified registry over the next several years. As I wrote to all of you a few months ago in a separate mailing, this transition to a parent verified registry is in response to broad based member requests.

The first proposal that was put forward last year by the Board of Directors (BOD) was ambitious and moved us to parent verification very quickly. That proposal was not popular with many ADCA members from across the country, so it was discarded. This new proposal is more moderate. It still encompasses many of the suggestions that members have made, but at a slower pace and at a lower cost.

This proposal does not look at the past; it is forward focused. Those animals that are currently registered remain registered. There will be no requirement to genotype any female born prior to January 2016. You may genotype your older cows if you desire, but it is not required. We are only proposing new requirements for future heifers, not looking backward at previously registered cows.

By starting to genotype our heifer calves in 2016, we will then be able to parent verify THEIR offspring when they calve in 2018. Through the ensuing years, as our older cows are taken out of production, the new genotyping proposal will transition us into a fully parent verified registry.

Genotyping costs $25 from both of our approved labs (UC Davis and Texas A&M). Parentage verification is performed at no additional cost provided both parents are on record at the same lab. We already require this for all bulls registered. The additional genotype is for females. Steers will not be required to be genotyped

As all of you are aware, there are several other types of genetic testing available. The current rules regarding these tests remain unchanged.
Please read the enclosed “Proposal for New Registration Requirements” closely. We will vote on this at the AGM in Virginia in June. If you cannot attend, you can still vote by using the enclosed “Proxy Form” as described in the question and answer section.

It has been a pleasure working and interacting with members from all of our regions during this process. For all the time and energy you have expended to improve our registry and the American Dexter Cattle Association

…THANK YOU!

As always, Celebrate the Diversity of Dexter Cattle

Jim

Jim Woehl, President, American Dexter Cattle Association

UC Davis News:
"Genotyping and Parent Verification"

Please note: when submitting a bull calf for genotyping through the UC Davis lab, you MUST check the box on their form:
"Genotyping and Parent Verification"

Bull calves cannot be registered without sire qualification (part of parent verification). Note that UC Davis uses a bit different wording than other labs - by checking this box, they will genotype your animal, and sire and dam qualify it (if both parents are available in the database).
