Black Impala

• When buying split rams or ewes, make sure that the seller presents the DNA results that prove the animals carry the black gene either via direct testing(R2000 per animal) for the black gene or via parentage verification – sire or dam must be black(R450 per animal).
• Ewes and breeding rams must be bought from different breeders (ensures that they are unrelated) in order the minimise the genetic diversity (and minimise inbreeding) in your herd.
• Please note that the black gene of Impalas is the only colour gene of all the game species that can be directly determined via DNA testing.
