What is a Breeding Certificate?

A commonly asked question we get is “what is a breeding certificate and do I need one?”

A Breeding Certificate is required by the breed registry in order to register your purebred litter.  What the breeding certificate does is confirm the sire of the pigs.  Below, we will take you through the steps of requesting a breeding certificate.

We are currently working on making to where you can request your breeding certificate online off of our website.  We will keep you posted as soon as this is available.  We are hoping that this allow you work on this when you have time and just not limit you to our office hours to request the breed cert.

Each breed registry require processes and requires something different for a breeding certificate.

We do the NSR, CPS, and Berkshire Associations breed certifcates online directly to the association.  When you send in your litter registration form, they match these [ ]

Welcome!

We would like to welcome everyone one to the Shaffer Goldrush blog!

This blog is something new that we have added in hopes to better serve and inform our cusotmers.  Our goal is to post information that will be useful and helpful in you and your family’s swine operation.  We will not only be posting new boar information, show pigs information, and special savings when ordering semen, but we are hoping to provide you with showmanship tips, farrowing tips, funny stories, and maybe throw in our favorite receipt every once and while.  We are hoping this will be a place that will not only provide you information and be helpful but entertain you as well.

We wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2013!
