Branding Reminder05 Jan 2015
A reminder to breeders that all foals and weanlings should be freeze branded in sufficient time for their brands to be discernible by the 31st March of their first year of life. Brands must be clearly visible as permanent white hair markings before horses are microchipped and sampled. Breeders can check which month their microchipping kit will be issued by entering the dam’s name and selecting the ‘Unnamed Produce’ option. If you have not registered your brand and been issued with a Brand Index Number, please download a ‘Brand Registration’ form, located under the ‘General Information/ Forms’ option, and fax or post to the ASB as soon as possible.

Only the produce of natural services are accepted by the Australian Stud Book. Foals produced by any artificial means are not permitted into the Australian Stud Book under international protocols. This specifically means artificial insemination, embryo transfer, cloning and genetic manipulation. We hope studs and breeders Australia wide are able to fulfill their mating plans for their stallions and broodmares, and wish them all well for the coming season.
