Tissue Sample Unit Now Available for DNA Sample Collection

The American Hereford Association partnered with Allflex to release Tissue Sampling Units as a new method for producers to collect herd DNA samples. TSUs can be used at any point in an animal's life, but offer a reduced-stress option since the procedure can be done while tagging, rather than adding an additional step to pull blood or hair. A TSU can be purchased from the AHA for $2. A customizable five-digit alphanumeric Allflex tag and TSU unit can also be purchased together for $3.75/unit.
