There are two options. Firstly, bulls notified to the Society with ‘intention to register’ within three months of birth will be subject to a £20 fee. Alternatively, bull calves notified as ‘birth notification only’ (free of charge) within three months of birth will be subject to the following fees if the Secretary is subsequently informed of intention to register:
3-6 months: £40
6-12 months: £60
12-18 months: £125
Bulls will only become fully registered upon passing inspection between 10 and 18 months of age. Members will be required to apply for their bulls to be inspected with a notice of at least one month to allow the Society time to make arrangements. Click here to download bull inspections guide.
Registration fees for ET calves are double those payable for naturally born calves.
