Pedigree Management Help

To search for a particular animal in order to manage their Pedigree status, simply enter the Animal ID, the animal name or breed in the ‘search box’.
You can then filter your flock by the following options if necessary: Pedigree, Birth Notified / Pending, Rejected, Ineligible or All.

How do I name and request an animal?

Each flockbook has a list of rules that need to be followed when naming animals. To see a list of the rules simply hover over the question mark beside Name Issues.

Flock Rules


If your lambs have not already been named, it is necessary to name them before you can pedigree request them. For the example above Texel males born in 2016, the Animal Name must begin with Y and must be at least 2 characters long.

If you have a name in mind simply enter it in the Animal Name box or if not click the green ‘Auto Name’ button and this will generate a name that meets the criteria.

Auto naming

Once the name is entered then proceed to click on the blue ‘request’ button.

Request pending


Request pending will then appear. If an animal is requested in error, you can contact your Society representative to rectify it.

Why are some animals appearing as ineligible?



The most common reason an animal may appear as ineligible is because either the sire or dam may only be birth notified or the lamb was birth notified after the society deadline. In order to request the pedigree of an animal both the sire and dam need to be pedigree registered on the system.
