Health and Genetics Committee

In September 2014, the Board appointed a Health and Genetics Committee:

Between them, they bring knowledge of the breed and a history of working with pedigrees and with the Dutch Kooiker club records (many dealing with health and birth issues).
Others interested in health and genetics are welcome to join.
Please contact anyone on the committee.
