With the ever growing reproductive technology becoming more readily available and with the problems this causes with the conventional registration procedures in place, the CDC has developed two new forms to be used in ET and some AI registrations.The first form is an “Embryo Transfer Flush Form”. This form needs to be filled out at the time of the flush as the technician needs to sign the form, and sent into the CDC office before any lambs can be registered from that flush. This form will also be used if one sells any embryos from a flush with certain signature provisions as explained on the form.The second form is a “Sale of Semen Declaration Form”. This form needs to be filled with the CDC office at any time a breeder obtains semen from a ram they do not own, foreign and domestic. This form will replace the conventional ram lease form in the case of AI and ET matings. If the semen is from a foreign registered Dorset ram, the CDC does recognize other Dorset association pedigrees but a copy
of that pedigree needs to be filed at the same time and the registration of that ram into the CDC registry also needs to be paid for.Ownership of the sire and dam is the basic requirement for registration of their offspring sowhen this paper trail is disrupted by technology then the CDC does need to have further paperwork submitted to prove ownership. Thank you in advance for your nderstanding in getting these formscompleted and sent in for your future registrations. The filing of this paperwork takes effect as ofJanuary 1, 2013 for any registrations being done after that date. Technicians should have given youcertificates when they did your ET or AI work so you should have no trouble in getting the new forms filled out and submitted. If you have any questions please feel free to call the CDC office. Forms are available on the cdc website under the "FORMS" tab.
