DNA Policy for Walking Herd Sires

 In November 2010 the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board implemented a policy requiring DNA on all future walking herd sires. Therefore, any sire born after Jan. 1, 2011, must have DNA on file at the AHA.

When a breeder tries to register calf out of a sire that was born after Jan. 1, 2001, and there isn’t DNA on file, a DNA error will be returned to the producer.
