March 1st Registration Changes

Registration Changes to Take Place on March 1, 2019

In late 2018, the NAEBA Board of Directors approved several changes to improve registry services and expectations for the membership, to take effect on March 1, 2019. If you have been procrastinating with your animal registration work, you will want to make those requests before rates go up on March 1st.  

New Registration and Testing Fees Effective March 1
Animal Registrations: Animal registration will remain at $25 USD for calves registered by December 31 of the following year. (For example, a 2018 calf can be registered for $25 until December 31, 2019 and a 2019 calf can be registered for $25 until December 31, 2020).   All other animal registrations will be $35 USD.
 For DNA work: DNA testing will increase from $39 to $44.
 For Purity work:  Purity testing will increase from $75 to $85. 

New Fee Applied to Rush Registration Orders Effective March 1, 2019

An additional fee will be applied to NAEBA members that request expedited work.

Effective March 1, 2019, in the event a member needs expedited work faster than the published expected response times, NAEBA can request expedited work of vendors without guarantee of a completion date, for an additional fee of $25 per animal in the order. It is NAEBA's hope members think ahead to request registry work before it's needed. 

Below are the posted timelines for expected response times for general work: 

Animal Registration (from day sent in, with no data missing, to results in mailbox) - 4 weeks
Animal DNA Kits - 3 weeks
Animal DNA Results with Registration - 8 weeks from when the hair samples are submitted to the UC Davis Lab
Animal DNA Retests - 6-8 additional weeks
Genotyping - 6 weeks off existing samples, 8 weeks from when the hair samples are submitted to the UC Davis lab
Purity Packing Slip - 3 weeks
Purity Results - 4 weeks


Incomplete/Illegible Paperwork Will be Sent Back to Producer or Charged a Fee for Completion

Effective March 1st, in the event that incomplete or illegible paperwork is sent to the NAEBA office, staff will contact the member asking if they want it to be sent back for them to complete and resubmit OR staff can give a best attempt to complete it using its resources with a $75 flat fee that will cover up to one hour of work, with additional work charged at a $75 hourly rate. 


Replacing Official ID Tags on NAEBA Registration Certificates

While NAEBA recently put a protocol in place that does not allow a member to change the original ear tag number on a NAEBA registration form (NAEBA does allow a producer to replace a lost ear tag with the same number tag).  The NAEBA Board has set forth an additional policy regarding official ID: In order to change the official ID tag on a NAEBA registration certificate, ID tags need to be verified by a veterinarian or state inventory with information supplied by members before updating and creating a new certificate.
