With spring sale catalogue production in full swing, it is timely to remind members of important changes to the Angus Australia regulations that apply to the identification of animals that were born from January 1st, 2021, onwards (calves with the year letter code S and onwards), as there are implications for Members submitting sale catalogue information to Angus Australia.
WHAT WERE THE CHANGES?

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SALE CATALOGUES?
When completing the Excel Spreadsheet for Entering Lots members must ensure that they are entering the animal ident exactly as it is recorded with Angus Australia. Therefore, for S calves and onwards the ident structure consists of the breeder’s herd identifier, a two-character year of birth, a breeding year letter and an animal number. That is, rather than ABCS1, the animal ID assigned will be ABC21S1.
Members who submit the Excel spreadsheet for entering lots with incorrect lot idents will be asked to resubmit the information in the correct format.
