Beta Casein (A2)
Beta casein Testing at MatMaCorpMilk containing only the A2 protein is claimed to be easier to digest than the A1 protein, does not have the negative health effects such as increased diabetes and coronary heart disease, and as such, can be sold at a premium. It is important for producers wanting to sell A2 milk to genotype their dairy cattle to determine if they contain two, one, or no copies of the A2 gene variant of beta-casein. Testing can be performed from blood, semen, or tissue (ear notch) samples.

Bovine Congestive Heart Failure (BCHF)
BCHF Testing at MatMaCorpThis fast and accurate testing service for prediction of BCHF risk allows producers to make informed decisions for breeding and growth management. Testing can be performed from blood, semen, or tissue (ear notch) samples.

Evaluating the efficiency and accuracy of a commercial test for estimating genetic risk of bovine congestive heart failure

Bovine Congestive Heart Failure (BCHF) Plus Jumonji Testing
BCHF and Jumonji Testing at MatMaCorpThis fast and accurate testing service for prediction of BCHF risk allows producers to make informed decisions for breeding and growth management. Selection for the protective JMJD1C allele may be useful in reducing bovine congestive heart failure in affected herds. A single copy of the minor allele can provide protection from BCHF. Testing can be performed from blood, semen, or tissue (ear notch) samples.

Horned/Polled (Celtic)
Horned/Polled (Celtic) Testing at MatMaCorpPolled livestock are without horns through selective breeding in species that are typically horned. This benefits animals that are maintained in locations like barns and small fenced in areas. This phenotype is often desirable for beef and dairy breeds. Testing can be performed from blood, semen, or tissue (ear notch) samples. Primarily for Angus, Charolais, and Hereford.
