Transferring Your Animals

or

As a seller of U.S. Registered Holsteins®, one of your responsibilities is to file a completed transfer application with Holstein Association USA for each animal sold. Your customers expect you to supply them with high quality genetics. With a Holstein Association USA registration certificate confirming the transfer, they can count on it.

Advantages to transferring your animals:

The animal's value to the new owner is increased by providing important management information.
A free three-generation pedigree with each regular transfer provides the new owner with current
performance information.
Knowledge of the animal's lineage helps to manage inbreeding and genetic recessives.

All are important tools to maximize your profits and the buyer's satisfaction. Filing a transfer is easy - simply fill out a paper transfer application, file a transfer online or call Customer Service at 800.952.5200.
