Stock Ram DNA Project
CALL FOR PARTNERS
A research project on Lleyn stock rams is about to start at Cardiff University. The aim is to correlate DNA features with characteristics and performance of rams, potentially allowing breeders to select a new ram on scientific grounds in addition to their usual visual and/or performance criteria.
We need DNA from around 80 rams covering a range of breeders and geographies. If you are interested in taking part, please contact John Adams (01872 501749 or email@example.com).
Note that all costs are covered.
However, participants will need to:
Participants will receive information on scrapie genotype, prolificacy gene status and Myomax muscling this winter and, hopefully, more information over the next 2-3 years.
Note that numbers are limited and so will be on a first come, first served basis.
