Register of Appendix Females
The Highland Cattle Herd Book has an appendix register for Highland females found to be of true Highland type but of unknown or unproven pedigree. No male progeny out of appendix females are eligible for registration in the appendix registers or the Herd Book proper.
Only female progeny of Appendix cattle can be accepted into the Herd Book - female calves from Appendix B cattle by a registered Highland bull can be entered into Appendix A of the Herd Book and female calves from Appendix A cows by a registered Highland bull are eligible for entry into the Herd Book proper.
To register an appendix female, photographs of the animal including a head shot showing the eartag number and a full body shot must be sent to the society office with the registration form. Highland females entered in the appendix register whose pedigrees are subsequently established cannot be re-entered in the Herd Book proper.
Highland females entered in the appendix register are not eligible for use as donor cows for fertilised embryo transfer programmes.
