MICROSATELLITE DNA TEST MACHINE

Neogen will no longer be able to conduct MiP DNA testing from January 1st 2021. Whilst this won't affect the registration of any progeny of these animals, it will mean that Shorthorn Beef will no longer be able to provide parent verification for any progeny of MiP tested parents, unless the parent is upgraded to a SNP panel first.

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. The Vendor is responsible for transfer of animals into the Purchasers herd and also payment of any transfer fee.

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.

It is also a requirement that before registering the progeny of Sires or Donor dams that the Sire and/or Donor dam has been DNA profiled using the Society approved DNA laboratory and that the DNA profile is stored at the Shorthorn Beef office. It is a good time when transferring either Stud Sires or Donor dams to ensure that a DNA sample has been submitted.

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.
