Implemented late in 2003 e.Registration is now in use by many members. The completion of one simple form allows members to automatically register animals in a variety of ways…

At the end of October each year NZ Milking Shorthorn Assn produces the annual Herd Book, publishing details of all animals registered as pedigrees in the proceeding 12 month period to 31 August. Eligibility is defined as follows…

A system of classification of registered females based upon type and individuality, TOP & Classification recognises that progress that progress towards the improvement of the Milking Shorthorn breed should be obtained through animals superior in conformation as well as production.

Inspections are undertaken by the Ayrshire New Zealand on our behalf in late spring each year. Animals are scored by trained inspectors on a scale of 1 – 9 for 11 different conformation traits along with scores for ‘udder overall’ and ‘dairy conformation’. These scores are then converted into a classification ‘award’.
