Electronic Registrations
Electronic registration is designed to make the registration process easier and faster by eliminating the need for hand written applications and mailing time to the CLRC office. Follow this link to begin the process

In certain cases, you may be required to forward additional documentation This includes the foreign certificate in the case of registration of imported animals, and embryo documentation for ET calves.

Please note that transfers of animals that are already registered cannot be accepted electronically, as the existing certificate must be surrendered to CLRC in order to receive the transferred certificate.

The final thing to note regarding electronic registration is that fees must be paid either by credit card or by an existing credit in your Blonde d'Aquitaine account at CLRC.

If at anytime you experience difficulties in the electronic registration process, please do not hesitate to contact the CLRC staff. We will be pleased to assist you.

Registration of animals is conducted through the Association's affiliation with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation in Ottawa, the national pedigree service for purebred livestock in Canada.
