I have 3 Polled Herfords, a bull and two heiffers. There grandparents were once registered, but the gentleman I purchased them from did not continue with the registration. Can I start over again? Is there anything I can do?

i agree with Bez.......you're probably SOL but check with the AHA.

if you know for sure the grandsire/granddam were registered, a possibility would be to register the parents and then register the calves. the problem with this is that it gets expensive to register older animals. $100 for any animal over 24 months.

Question to you LM:

Why bother? You planning to get into the breeding game?

It is a tough racket, and there are many out there that are quite willing to buy good commercial cows.

I have serious doubts, I bet that is one bored bull though.

Speaking of bored bulls - ours are up at the fences now - giving us the "I want to get down to business" calls.

They watched the cows go by on their way to the new pasture. The bulls go out in a week and they know it!

We just open the gate and they run right across the front lawn and into the big pasture - takes all of 30 seconds. Generally everybody stands on the deck and watches the show.

Amazing how fast they can run when they have a "purpose".

Alright I puttin my dog in, if your bull(she) has vistors. Why is there a shortage of registered bulls in your area? Why would anyone want to breed to a bull that had no earthly idea the birthweights he would throw. Doesn't seem very smart.
