CLAY CENTER, Neb. (AP) _ Genetic testing is becoming a tool for cattle producers to use to monitor and improve the health of their herds.

That's why the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension offices are planning a seminar on DNA technology on June 26.

Several experts in genetic research and some of the products available will give presentations about the potential benefit of the technology.

The meeting will be held at the USDA's Meat Animal Research Center near Clay Center.

For more information or to register, call Terry Behl at 402-472-6441. The workshop costs $10.
