Common Questions When Submitting Registry Work
Q: Do I need to send a work order/fee schedule with my registration work?
Q: Do I have to pay dues in order to register my sheep?
A: For most of the breeds we work with you must pay dues in order to register animals. The work order for your association would explain whether your association allows non-members to register animals.
Q: What do I send to Associated Registry when I am transferring an animal that is already registered?
A: You need to submit the actual registration certificate, not a copy, preferably a work order and payment. Furthermore, the back of the certificate needs to be filled out with the buyers name and address and the date of sale. Finally, the seller needs to sign the certificate.
Q: What is a breeding certificate and when is it needed?
A: A breeding certificate is used when you lease a ram from another breeder or bought a bred ewe. This certificate needs to be signed by the owner of the ram so we know it is okay to register your lambs out of a ram that is not owned by you.
Q: Can I register and transfer my animals in one transaction?
A: Yes you can register an animal that you have sold and transfer it at the same time. This is two fees one to register and one to transfer the animal. Be sure you include the buyers information and the date of sale.
Q: Where do I find the specific requirements to register the animals of my breed of sheep?
A: The first place to look is on the work order/fee schedule. Next, you should check the website of your specific breed. Links to both the websites and work orders are elsewhere on this page. Finally, if you can’t find the answer to your question give us a call at 785-456- 8500 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: When should I pay a rush fee?
A: Rush fees are necessary when you want your work returned the same day that we receive it. This allows us to put your work ahead of recently received work. Generally, if you need something in less than two weeks a rush fee would apply, this includes mail time which can take 4-5 days to get to us and 4-5 days to get back to you. By the way rush fees are applied to all registrations and transfers that you need returned quickly. So if you are registering and transferring an animal and want it as a rush two rush fees apply.
Q: Why is providing my contact information necessary?
A: Many times we have questions that arise as we are doing your registry work and by providing us with a daytime phone number and an email address we can contact you and hopefully resolve the issue immediately and return your work to you quickly.
Q: Can I fax or email in registration applications?
A: Yes, you can submit your registrations in whatever manner is easiest for you. However, payment must be received before the work is returned to you.
Q: What payment methods are available to pay for my registry work?
A: All of the associations that we work with can pay by check, credit and debit cards. Several of the associations allow payments through paypal. Specific information on the availability of paypal for your association can be found on their website.
