GA - DNA fingerprinting of Greyhounds

Over the next few weeks GRNZ will be receiving a new shipment of DNA kits from Greyhounds Australasia.

There will be an extra step when DNA fingerprinting, and also a new delivery address. Massey University, Palmerston North will be doing the processing which, should mean a quicker turnaround for our  NZ participants.

As indicated earlier, there will be a change to the collection of DNA, this means there will be the cheek swab as per the existing sampling, however going forward there will be an additional requirement of the vet to take hair samples at that same time.

Once we have been provided the  date when this will become effective, we will post an update to let you know.
