Hello all, it has been a while since I have posted or contributed. Life has been busy. Anyways, those who follow ADGA are aware that there has been a huge push to DNA test animals. Starting in 2023 all breeding bucks will be required to be DNA tested, which I think is great. A lot of herds have already begun DNA testing their entire herd. Now a handful of breeders are under scrutiny, as you can imagine. Recently a large and popular Nigerian breeder has been found that animals they have sold are not registered under the correct parents, thanks to DNA. Generations of animals getting messed up due to one lie. I believe this is only the start of exposing some unethical big breeders. I can only imagine the panic some are going through realizing they will be found out. Can no longer sell a FF kid under the name of your finished champion? Now ADGA has taken a hands off approach with this ordeal. They will provide the tests but the rest is between buyer and seller. Now I think this would make a good discussion on what is going to happen now? Should registrations be pulled because a kids grandsire is not who hes supposed to be? Should ADGA step in and suspend repeat offenders? Fine them? Now as far as does, if an ADGA champion gets offered a DNA test and they turn it down should that be put on their record? In cases like that makes you wonder why they would turn it down.
