Be sure to get that paper for your pig!
• It’s your word. It’s a bond that says your breeding stock is a superior product backed by superior genetics and predictable performance.
• A performance pedigree is what sets the purebred man apart from the people who pass common, ordinary pigs off as breeding stock.
• And a pedigree is something else. it’s the life blood of an entire industry, making it possible for you to have the leadership, research, programs, services and support you’ve come to expect from your association.
• So, if you’re raising and selling purebreds, you owe it to yourself to register every litter. If you are purchasing seedstock for your commercial operation, you owe it to yourself to ask for the performance pedigree. Why not take advantage of years of genetic selection and performance to see that your breed is a very important part of sustaining that special heritage breed you are purchasing.
• Genetics are a very important part of the animal you are starting to build your herd with and that piece of paper, called a pedigree, is very relevant to the growth, lineage and productivity of your future.
• Remember to give the person you purchase your pig from your name and address and how you want them registered. They will have to send in a transfer to the association and have it put in your name, so that when you have a litter of pigs, you can register them and be proud of what you own. Small but very important and necessary things to do.
