Dams may be registered within their own breed or may be purebred, non-registered females qualified by ABBA inspection. Breeds other than Brahman must not contain percentages of Brahman blood as a base.
If both parents are registered within their respective breed, each animal’s name, registration number and breed identification will qualify their female progeny for certification. When both parents are registered, progeny are recognized as Golden Certified.
If the herd contains purebred, non-registered females, including non-registered Brahmans, the cows must be qualified by an ABBA inspector and properly identified before their progeny may be certified.
