It appears that there may have been some technical issues with some batches of data. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Pedigree Certificates

With regard to some recent comments relating to the new style pedigree certificates, firstly, I can confirm that the new layout and design was passed by the Trustees before being initiated.  The new style was discussed at the Society’s General Meeting in June 2018.

The new certificates have been introduced, primarily to conform to the need to be able to print, if necessary, individual “Zootechnical” certificates now required under EU legislation.  This would not have been possible with the old style certificate, as these were pre-printed and obviously did not allow for any alterations without the need to re-print at considerable cost.

The new style certificates are more economical to produce and are now in line with the style and layout of many other cattle breeds.

Kind regards
