NZWBA Herd Register

The registry is the NZWBA’s official database of animal records.  It records the pedigree of each animal registered with the association and is a national and internationally accepted means of certifying each animal’s lineage.  Each record is verified by the Herd Register using DNA parentage tests and/or reliable field records.  Members can register their full blood, purebred and crossbred Wagyu cattle, and search the registry for cattle.  Email [email protected] and our Registration Coordinator Officer will be able to assist you.
