60 % Off 50K test for a limited time only

You've come to expect the American Simmental Association (ASA) to le-verage all its resources to provide the industry with the best prices and most robust science.  The Cow-herd DNA Roundup is a perfect example of that service.
Breeders who submit a DNA sample on their en-tire cowherd can get geno-mically enhanced EPDs and parentage for $20/test.  Breeders who submit cow weights with either body conditions scores or hip heights get an additional $5 off per test, for the price of $15/sample.
This project marks a major investment from the ASA towards research and development.  The $15 test is only available for the first 15,000 samples with phenotypes submitted.  There is no estimate of when the results will be available on samples submitted.  Don-or cows and bulls do not qualify.  No additional DNA tests are available with this offer.
Leoma Wells, ASA's DNA and Total Herd Enrollment (THE) Specia-list, will transition from DNA Services to ASA's point person for the Cow-herd DNA Roundup project. When asked about the transition, Wells says, "I am excited and grateful to be a part of this revolutionary project. It combines two of my favorite areas, DNA and data collection on fe-males. The wheels are turning and I absolutely can't wait to get started and smash the goals we have set."  In September, ASA will welcome Carolyn Wild to the DNA department to help with the daily DNA services.  
Contact Wells or Jackie Atkins for more information at 406-587-4531.
