Forms, Fees are here


Membership: Online access membership will be offered soon (target: EOY 2023). Any membership fees paid before then (including lifetimes) will apply toward online membership fees later, if desired. Anyone can register cattle through the office anytime. When services go online, members can register unlimited numbers of cattle (all breeds recognized by HCA) online for no additional charge.

Print off necessary forms, fill them out, mail them in with a check or scan and email them with attached documentation, and pay online. Include photos, a scan of the registration certificates for both sire and dam, and any DNA documentation of animal or parents. If sire or dam is registered in more than one registry, please include all that info. Here are the steps:

DNA Testing: If you want to order DNA testing for your animal, please email, call or text Donna (office) to order testing supplies (hair kit, blood cards, etc.). To get an idea of which tests to order, and which Lab offers which tests, go here: Homestead Cattle Association DNA page. Homestead & Miniature Cattle Directory of Genetic Traits & Diseases (testable genetic traits & conditions in cattle). Contact Donna with any questions about which tests to order for the Belfair and Irish Jersey.

Your animal's registration certificate will be printed for the Belfair Cattle Registry or the Irish Jersey Registry. Papers are usually done & sent quickly; the first proof is emailed as pdf, usually available within 2 days for owner approval. Calf or permanent registration certificates can be emailed as official pdf, or as an embossed seal, signed certificate mailed from office. Let office know which version you need. If you ever contact and do not hear back, that means I have not seen or received or lost your message; so please, reach out again!
