New Policy Regarding Stallion Service Certificates

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

 THIS WILL AFFECT ALL THOSE BREEDING TO NZ BASED STALLIONS THAT ARE LICENSED FOR BREEDING WITH THE NZWA.

From 1 August 2018 the NZWA is tightening up on our regulations regarding Stallion Service Certificates.

We will no longer be accepting retrospectively dated and submitted Service Certificates from stallion owners pertaining to the 2017 breeding season onwards.

If the stallion owner has not filed their returns with the NZWA by the 31st of July for the previous breeding season then we will require DNA testing to register the subsequent foal.

Mare owners are encouraged to make sure the Stallion Owner provides them with a Service Certificate to save paying the DNA costs ($100 for the foal and $100 for the dam if not previously tested).  This should be part of the Breeding Contract.

The NZWA has made this decision to keep the integrity of our Register, and as members of the WBFSH we need to be stricter than ever before on these matters.

The policy of DNA testing all frozen semen foals has not changed.

Stallion owners will be informed of this change in policy via phone and Facebook and email to make sure everybody understands their obligations. Stallion owners may apply for an extension to the 31st July deadline but this will only be given in exceptional circumstances.

NB:  As this is a new rule moving forward, we will not be enforcing the compulsory DNA testing for horses born prior to the 2017 breeding season, so you may still gain a retrospective Service Certificate for these breedings but we do hold the right to request DNA testing at our discretion.
