Identifying F-1 Animals
For the certificate option, the owner must provide information on each animal including the name, address and signature of the enrolled breeder; the herd identification number of the F-1 female being certified; ownership brand or other identification; birth record (month or season and year); color markings; the breed, name, identification number and registration number of the sire; and, if registered, the breed, name, identification number and registration number of the dam. If the dam is a qualified non-registered dam, its identification number is provided in lieu of purebred registry information.
Individual certificates of certification will be issued by ABBA upon receipt and approval, and payment of the appropriate fee ($7.50). ABBA maintains filing systems that include owners, program certificates by numbers, and sires by breeds. Adequate safeguards are maintained to help eliminate fraudulent entries.
For the eartag option, the owner must provide their membership information including the name, address and signature of the enrolled breeder; as well as sire and dam breed information; and number of certifications requested.
