Animal-Germplasm Request

The following is how requests are processed:

  • Requestor submits the request form to NAGP. (Requestor will receive confirmation email that request has been received)
  • The appropriate NAGP Species Committee reviews the request and provides NAGP with a recommendation.
  • NAGP makes a determination concerning the release of the request material.
  • If approved, NAGP will contact the requestor to make shipment arrangements.

If more than 20 animals are being requested, do not fill out the this form.
