ShowTRAK™ is a DNA based
animal identification program designed for livestock shows. Every
animal has a unique
DNA profile or fingerprint
that never changes throughout its life. An animals unique
DNA fingerprint can be detected using either a blood or hair sample
and is what forensic labs use to identify criminals. ShowTRAK™ uses
this unique DNA fingerprint to accurately verify the identification
of the animals within your livestock show.
The animal's DNA is collected by either blood or hair samples when
they are registered for the show. Then, selected samples are collected
at the show, thus allowing ShowTRAK™ to accurately verify the identification
of the animals within your show.
