Here's a new one! I read that ADCA no longer requires a membership fee to register nor charges non-member penalty fees! So, I looked at the registration page. . . . and it does not say you have to be a member to register, and it does not show different fees for non-members.
I was told that the webmaster was away on a trip and would return July 27, I think. At that time he would update the AI Bulls page to include Adam One of Paradise, a Traditional bull that carries red.
I assume there will be a ton of other stuff that could delay Adam One's listing.
I just registered GI Joe of Paradise with the ADCA. The registrar is keeping up. It took about a week. The ADCA has never been as quick with registrations as Legacy Dexter Cattle Registry has. Legacy is quick!
Gene, one week is pretty quick for ADCA. But you're doing it electronically? I have done registrations by mail which takes quite a bit longer because it is sent to their official ADCA address and then forwarded to Texas where the registrar actually lives. (I use mail because I send additional paperwork supporting PHA and chondro results for parents.) I know, I know, it's stupid and I'm behind the times. But happily and sadly, I will not have any more to send.
For a while I couldn't get the on-line registration for ADCA to work right. Support files got lost, payments got lost, genotypes weren't received. But now it works, making it better than paper registration.
I can't hlp but admire how well the Legacy process has worked while all the birthing pains were going on with ADCA. Praises to Judy and her web developer. I don't know his name, but I admire his work.
The other night I went to the Legacy on-line pedigree and looked up all of the Traditional cows that carry red. That is a good trick. You can't do that anywhere else.
Gale, I'm sad to think about you not registering any more calves. If it hadn't been for you showing me your Dexters back in 2003, and directing me to Judy as a source of Dexters for sale, I probably would never have owned a Dexter. Too dreadgul to think about.
Gene, thank you for your comments. Yes, I will surely miss the new babies and watching the cows mother them as they do so well. But selling the bulls was the only sure way to lower the numbers. If I could find a good buyer for Sprint, I'd be content. Now I kind of regret not letting her half brother breed her, but then I'd be adding an animal so.......I'll just have to get my calf fix by visiting you!
