    Has anyone every had to do a paternity test on their baby goat? If so, what lab is it sent to, is it accurate, and what are the costs?

    Thanks so much-

    if the sire and dam are adga - then it is cheaper to go through "adga" to have it done - but you just pull the hair off from between the hoofs and place in the envelopes and send in - wa la! I think it is 40.00 an animal - so 120.00 for mom, possible dad, and baby.
