When you are shopping for Piedmontese seedstock, knowing that the animal is registered or recorded with NAPA is the best way to be certain that you will get an animal with the Piedmontese Myostatin genetics.

All cattle that are 100 percent fullblood and can trace their pedigree back to the Italian registered Herdbook, may be eligible to be registered in NAPA's fullblood category. If a fullblood animal is found to have LESS than 2 copies of the allele, they will be removed from this category of registry.

The NATURALEAN™ registry and recordation categories are for any animal less than 100 percent fullblood, and for those fullbloods which cannot trace their parentage back to Italian seedstock. These animals must be test verified PRIOR to registration or recordation to prove that they carry at least ONE myostatin allele. 2-copy Naturalean are Registered, and 1-copy Naturalean are Recorded.

Animals with zero (0) copies of the myostatin allele are NOT eligible to be registered or recorded with NAPA.

Naturalean™ Registry certificates will state the level of Piedmontese blood an animal carries...PLUS will identify if they have 1 or 2 copies for myostatin.

The term "purebred" is NOT used in NAPA - as it has been mis-leading to breeders and buyers in the past. Up-graded so-called 'purebred' cattle (less than 100% pure) have been confused with "fullblood" cattle (100% pure)...and there is potential for some up-graded 'purebred' cattle registered with other Piedmontese Associations to have zero copies for myostatin.

So, in all cases, when you see a NAPA Registration Certificate which states "Fullblood" you are assured that the animal has 100 percent Piedmontese blood, traceable to the country of origin - Italy. All fullblood cattle tested to date have been 2-copy for myostatin. (Homozygous)

When you see a NAPA Naturalean™ Registration Certificate, you know the animal has been test verified to have at 2-copies for Myostatin (homozygous)...and the level of Piedmontese blood will be stated. The NAPA Naturalean™ 1-copy cattle will be Recorded in the Herd Book - and these heterozygous cattle will be clearly identified as RECORDED (rather than Registered.)

USDA research confirms that the Piedmontese 1 and 2 copy cattle are far superior to 0-copy cattle, both for carcass production traits and for beef tenderness.

Using a 2-copy bull on zero copy (non-Piedmontese) cows ALWAYS results in 100 percent of the calf crop having 1-copy of this valuable Myostatin allele.

Select your seedstock - backed by the integrity of the NAPA Registry - and be assured you will get the genetics you need to improve your beef program.
