We have applied DNA profiling for identity and parentage studies of cattle using a standardized procedure based on synthetic micro- and minisatellite multilocus core probes in Southern blot hybridization assays. This protocol is useful for paternity analysis of cattle and for real case work (e.g., identity and paternity disputes).
