     In order for your work to be processed in a timely manner, please provide the Registration Dept. all required information to register or transfer your Longhorns. When mailing in transfers, two things are needed to complete the process.
          1. The original Certificate of Registration
          2. A transfer application that has been signed by the previous owner showing the date of sale.
     Registrations applications should have all information completed including calving date, color description, Holding brand and Private Herd numbers. If the type of birth is an A.I. or Embryo, a Breeding Certificate form must accompany the application. Making sure that everything has been checked off the list will help the Registration Dept. to speedily process your work. Registration and Transfer applications can be downloaded from the website listed under “FORMS” Please do not hesitate to contact the Registration Dept. with any questions or concern that you may have.
