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.
Birth notifications can be completed online – if the sire is not in your herd for any reason (sold or AI) you may be able to ‘search’ the animals name – be sure to spell correctly and please ensure full names are used i.e Shamrock Daisy 2 and Shamrock Daisy 22 are completely different animals.
Birth Notification Forms are still printable from the website (see opposite) and can be emailed or posted to the Breed Secretary if you are not confident online.
