REGISTRATION REACTIVATION FEE

Beginning September 1st, NALF established an animal reactivation fee of $100 for any requests to change an animal from “Inactive” to “Active”.

We encourage membership to be extra cautious when entering disposal codes as to not mark an animal with a disposal code that is still active in your herd.

Membership will have a 30 day grace period to reactivate an animal if incorrectly disposed of. After the 30 day grace period, the $100 fee will be added to the member's account.

DNA Turnaround: 3 weeks

DNA SAMPLES

Due to the extra time it takes to pull a sample from storage for further testing, there will be a $2 per sample retrieval fee for any sample pull requests.

DATA DUE OCTOBER 15 FOR FALL EPDS

It is recommended that NALF members submit all available performance data by October 15 to be included in the evaluation for the calculation of the next set of EPDs, which will be released this fall. Data may be easily submitted via the NALF-DigitalBeef member site login.

For assistance in using the NALF-DigitalBeef platform, visit the 
Member Site Help page at NALF.org. Please contact Joe Epperly, NALF assistant executive director or Brittany Barrick, NALF director of registry and performance, for questions or more information.
