Dear Society Member,
Following instruction from DEFRA the society is issuing this statement to our members.
All USE of the following animals for Pedigree breeding including the use of semen, embryos and oocytes should CEASE with immediate effect until further notice from the Society. These animals are 1st generation progeny bred from a batch of imported semen from Jacot 36-94-005-555 which DEFRA has concern over. They have therefore been withdrawn from the herdbook.

Whilst seeking urgent clarification from DEFRA, it is the Society’s present understanding that All EXISTING PROGENY & DESCENDANTS that are currently in the herdbook from the above will REMAIN as full pedigree animals in the herdbook subject to meeting the usual herdbook requirements. PROGENY BORN ON OR AFTER 22/12/2021 CANNOT CURRENTLY be registered, but they can be birth notified in the usual manner. The Society is seeking clarity on the wider situation and all members will be kept informed.
The Council of Management understand that this is extremely concerning for many members and is working hard in the best interests of all members. Whilst the Society does not have further information available at this time, if you are directly affected by this matter and would like to discuss it, please get in touch.
