To enroll in the THE Commercial Option costs $500 per year plus a $50 membership set-up fee for first timers. The cost includes ASA annual membership fee of $110. There will be a one-time herd set-up fee of $2.00 per female and sires on inventory if ASA inputs data for you. Much of your cost may revolve around parental validation. If you have multi-sire pastures, this program will benefit you the most if you get parental validation on calves with unknown sires through Igenity which is a cost of $15 per head. Most everyone would say that it is definitely worth the cost but you need to decide for yourself.
