Cattle Registry Affiliation

Cattle Breeds

Introduction

Affiliation of your samples allows sharing of your confidential results with a third party organization ("registry"). The policy for what is shared is specific to each registry and detailed below.

Selection of affiliation indicates your consent for VGL to share your information in accordance with the policy. This is non-revocable, and the registry or registries will forever after have access to the records.

Selection of the primary affiliation determines the first three letters of the VGL case number that is assigned.
