Please click on the links on the left to download Birth Notification (BN) and Registration/DNA labels.

Registration/DNA labels and hair sample bags are available free of charge by contacting the Breed Secretary. Please ensure labels and bags are kept CLEAN and CLEARLY COMPLETED.

All animals should ideally be Birth Notified by the time they are 30 days old and must be Birth Notified prior to sending hair samples for registration. All females should be registered by the time they are 1 year old otherwise they will incur a late registration fee.

For more information on the registration process, fees etc please check out the society rules.

Birth Notification form - As of November 2017 a new birth notification form is in use. The form not only records 'calving ease' and 'colour' but also ‘weight’. Please enter this in kilos. The new form also has an option to tick ‘Birth Cert Required’. As a Society we aim to reduce unnecessary resources and from November 2017 we will refrain from posting birth certificates out unless requested.

If you have any queries please email the Breed Secretary.

Here is a guide for the colour options, please choose the one which best represents the animal being Birth Notified

Mainly White - A predominantly white animal with red ears with or without a red band around the nose, some in this category may also have a small amount of red on the rib and or neck region.

50/50 -
Around 50% red and 50% white. Some in this category may have a large proportion of white with a fair amount of red over ribs and usually will have some red on the neck.

Typically Marked -
As close to the preferred colour as possible, predominantly red (70-80%) with a broad white stripe the full length of back (no broken lines), white underparts and ideally a white patch on thigh. Red ears, nose and a mottled or flecked face, which may be fairly dark or light in colour.

Mainly Red -
Predominantly red animals, this would include animals with a broken, very thin or no white stripe down the back at all and with or without a little white around the head often with just a white star. Under parts are usually white in particular the udder and inside of legs.

Please remember the form must be fully completed in order for the birth notification to be processed. The details can be emailed or posted to the Breed Secretary.
