The Kerry Cattle Genome Diversity Project welcomes help from Kerry breeders and owners across Ireland. We are interested in obtaining DNA samples from Kerry animals born within 24 months of the year 2000 and animals born between 2009-2011 (see the DNA sampling section of this website for information about DNA sampling). The results and ouputs from the project wil be used to provide important information for breed conservation and management. Please contact us if you wish to take part in the Kerry Cattle Genome Diversity Project.
