When you can't find an animal

When you can't find an animal

If you don't see an animal in the list of suggested animals, it means it has not been registered to the breeder in the year of the animal's birth. You can:

  • Check to see if the parent has been registered to the breeder before building the pedigree
  • Try the 'Add New' option. This will provide you with two choices to build your pedigree: search for an existing animal, or register a new one.

Types of Pedigree Links

Backfill Registration

The system will attempt to backfill registration before trying any other type of links.

If the registration history of the parent is incomplete, but can be assumed easily, the system will 'backfill' the registration without needing any other special arrangements.

Leasing or Breeding Service

The registration history may show that the parent was registered to another breeder at the time the child was born. In this case, you will need to set up a lease or a breeding service.

*Lease: * A lease will show up in the animals movement history.

*Breeding Service: * A breeding service will not show up in the movement history.

Once this process is complete, you should then be able to attach the animal to your pedigree.

Search for existing animals

Use any combination of the drop-down fields to find the animal. It may take a few attempts, to account for spelling errors or other possible mistakes. Once you have the animal, the system will attempt to link it as a possible parent.

Register new animals

Follow the standard registration process here. When you have completed these steps, the animal should be available for your pedigree. Some Association's restrict how a pedigree can be built. If there is an issue, the system will notify you.
