CLARIFICATION: FEES FOR SNP LAB TESTS HAVE NOT BEEN REDUCED. The fee reduction only applies to administration fees charged by Jersey Canada which were originally $5.00, now reduced to $2.00.
Effective immediately, for the remainder of 2022 the administration fee charged by Jersey Canada for SNP results from genomic tests are reduced to $2 per result.
The Jersey Canada Board of Directors approved this change in response to member concerns. The goal is to encourage more producers to use genomic testing as a management tool, creating a larger database of results for the Jersey breed.
This change applies to tests received by labs April 4, 2022, until or on December 31st, 2022.
