  2. Apply for Registration

    When applying for registration, you must provide the following for each animal:

    • There is no size requirement to register your Jersey, but you must provide their height (measured at the withers in inches) when registering. All cattle will be given a size classification of either full-size, mid-size, mini-size, or micro-size. The measurement must be taken within the 30 days prior to registration.

  3. Provide a Hair Sample

    As part of our registration process, your Jersey will be DNA-tested. A genetic marker report, A2 genotyping, and polled test will be obtained on your behalf. A DNA test kit will be sent to you upon completion of your registration along with instructions for procuring a hair sample for the test. A copy of the final DNA report will be provided to you.
