Genetic tests in pedigree for defects

Post by Amo » Thu Apr 25, 2019 8:21 pm

Hey there. Considering a bull that has a lot of carrier stuff in it's pedigree. It's from a small seed stock operation. Bull is deceased. Has had a snp 50K test. It really doesn't say it's caf, ddf, etc at the top by registration numbers. If it had been tested it would say so.

Sire rito revenue 5M2 says it's clean. On the bottom side the cow is free of ca and DD. It has Whitman and all around in the cow.

Guess I'm thinking this bull is clean due to parentage. If that's the case, wouldn't it say so where it normally does? It doesn't say if it's a carrier, free, or anything. With that many dirty bulls in the pedigree, I'd like to know what's what. Guess if it could be a carrier due to parentage, and not tested...it'd say "DDP". So maybe it is clean. Just like to know for sure.

Thanks
