Report of Birth &
Hardship Special & Information
Transfers on Report of Birth and Registrations
When selling a calf that has not yet been Birth Reported, the breeder may submit the Birth Report and Transfer on the same document.
Start by filling out the "Breeder" portion of the form with your information (you will be the first owner), then fill the information out for the "New Owner" on the form (they will be the second owner).
Remember to fill out the "Date of transfer," this is the date the new owners took possession of their new Zebu. You do not need to complete a separate Transfer Application for the new owner. There will be no charge for the "Transfer" portion of this
Remember to use membership numbers on all forms. If you do not know them please visit the herd book to find it.
Online Herd Book
For a limited time, IMZA members may hardship-register an animal for $25!!! Regular cost is $50. This reduced fee will expire 12/31/17.
Our Hardship Registration Application has been updated to include much more information to help you in getting your miniature zebus registered. Please note that if you do not have a birth date for your animal, it must be estimated by checking with the breeder, former owner, your veterinarian or someone experienced in mouthing bovine to read the teeth for approximate age. The animal must be at least 24 months old at the time of Hardship application.
Please note that you will need to do a Registration Application on all Hardship applications under the age of 3 years old when they become 3 years old.
If you have already "Birth Reported" your Zebu, and on the certificate you are listed yourself as "Breeder" and "Owner," the regular Transfer Fees will apply and a "Transfer Application" form must be provided to the new owner at the time of transfer. Please note: New photos are NOT required for a transfer.
Please note that you cannot Transfer on a Registration. Please enter the registration and then do the online transfer second.
