How to transfer ownership

Why is it necessary to transfer ownership?

Under Shorthorn Beef regulations, calves may only be registered to the herd ident recorded for each female.

This means that females, that are used for the purpose of breeding registered Shorthorn cattle, must be registered to the new owner before resulting progeny may be registered to the new owners ident.

Transferring cattle is simple. Simply fill out the transfer form and return to the Shorthorn Beef Office.

Transfer of Ownership Form.

It is a requirement that transfer details are submitted by the vendor to Shorthorn Beef within 60 days from the transaction date.

For calves born by AI, where the AI sire is Accredited post December 31st, 2007, there is no requirement of transfer for AI Sires to the herd ident of the resulting calves. It is a requirement however, before such calves are registered that the Sire is an Accredited AI Sire with Shorthorn Beef.

For Registered Sires that produce progeny by natural service, that are intended to be registered with Shorthorn Beef, it is a requirement that ownership is transferred to the new herd ident during the joining period. In the case of leased or borrowed Sires, it is necessary to submit to Shorthorn Beef a Permit for Registration of Progeny Bred from a Borrowed Animal form, signed by the lessor or borrower.

For calves born by Embryo Transfer, where the embryos were collected post December 31st 2007, to a Donor Dam registered to another herd ident, it is not a requirement that the donor dam be transferred to the herd ident recording the Embryo Transfer calves. However, it is a requirement, before resulting progeny may be registered, that the Donor Dam is an Accredited Donor Dam with Shorthorn Beef. If the resulting Embryo Transfer calves are sired by AI then it is also a requirement that the AI Sire is an Accredited AI Sire with Shorthorn Beef.

In the case of Embryo Transfer calves bred from a Borrowed or Leased animal, then an Application for ET Registration of Progeny Bred from a Borrowed or Leased Animal form, must be filled out and returned to Shorthorn Beef, prior to the registration of the resulting progeny.
