DNA Request Updates

April 6, 2020

As families and businesses across the country continue to adjust to remote work, the American Hereford Association (AHA) has a few updates regarding how this transition is affecting requests for DNA.

  1. Neogen®/GeneSeek® is adapting like all businesses through this critical time and is continuing to provide DNA service. However, due to the current circumstances, it is important to plan ahead if you have any animals that need DNA work completed. Please allow for extra processing time to assist the lab in providing its best service. Remember, all steers planning to show in the Junior National Hereford Expo need DNA on file. Likewise, any bull born after Jan. 1, 2011, needs to have DNA on file to register progeny.

  2. MyHerd users can request DNA sample submissions forms electronically and the forms will be emailed once the transactions are paid. Please note this is the fastest method to receive your DNA sample submission form.

  3. AHA members who have not set up a MyHerd account can still make DNA requests by contacting AHA Customer Service. Please note these DNA requests will only be mailed out twice a week while the Customer Service team is working remotely.


Thank you for your patience during this adjustment. Please contact AHA Customer Service at 816-842-3757 or aha@hereford.org with additional questions.
