“Parentage Best Practices”
When submitting calves with unknown parentage, or if you use multi-sire pastures, it is highly recommended that
you test the calf for parentage prior to registering. At the time you submit the DNA sample on the calf for
parentage testing, the calf will be assigned a temporary number (BIR Number). Then provide all possible sires
by creating a sire group. This will allow the DNA to direct the system to determine the correct sire, allow us
to make the correction on the calf’s weight data, and then you can submit the registration application and register
the calf correctly. This procedure will ultimately save you time and extra effort.
To create a sire group, go to Member Login/My Herd/Animal Groups/Create Sire Group. In the ‘Sire Group Identifier’
box type in the name for your sire group. An example would be 2018 sires, North Pasture, etc. Click on ’Add New Sire’
and type in the registration numbers for your sires. Click on ‘Save’ when finished. If you need to add additional
sires you can do that by clicking on ‘Add Additional Sires’.
