Important notice about 3F EPIC 4631 (IMP 4631B) 2012720 NHC
Your Association has been informed that 3F EPIC 4631 (IMP 4631B) 2012720 NHC is a carrier of the causative mutation for Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH).
Although not a potential carrier of NH by pedigree, a son of 3F EPIC 4631 (IMP 4631B) 2012720 NHC was tested and identified as a carrier in the U.S., so the American Angus Association tested a DNA sample from 3F Epic 4631 to determine his NH status.
The resulting test indicated 3F EPIC 4631 (IMP 4631B) 2012720 NHC is an NH carrier.
More information on the Canadian Angus Association genetic condition policy and NH is available here.
In accordance with the Canadian Angus Association Genetic Condition Policy (effective September 22, 2013), calves sired by 3F EPIC 4631 (IMP 4631B) 2012720 NHC need to be DNA tested for NH before they are eligible for registration. DNA testing can be arranged by contacting your Association at 1-888-571-3580.
