Animal ID - Our Company

Animal ID designs and implements DNA testing services for livestock shows. The service helps to track animals’ identity and in turn deter fraud and mitigate risk to the shows. Prize winning purses can be very significant…thousands, tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Our goal is to create a solution using our ShowTRAK™ system to help ensure integrity in the show ring.

Our IDTRAK™ system is a DNA banking system designed for livestock owners to keep a historical record. When combined with production and reproduction data, this can become an important tool for improving the quality of your herd over time.
