Name of Animal: limited to 30 digits, including prefix, suffixes (P for polled animals, ET for embryo transplants), and spaces.
Prefix: use your prefix when registering an animal that is bred and owned by you. If you purchased a bred cow, the calf will be registered using the prefix of the owner at the time the cow was bred.
NLID tag number: this is the 15-digit number on the round button tag in your animal's ear. (Animals tagged in Canada will start with 124; animals tagged in the USA will start with 840.)
Make sure the animal is permanently tagged with a white NLID tag before submitting your registration application. If the animal has already been tagged with a yellow CCIA tag, you will need to order NLID tags through Holstein Canada and cross-reference the tag numbers.
