Self Billing Worksheet – Use this Self-Billing Worksheet to calculate fees for registrations, transfers, and other services.
Registration Instructions – These instructions relate to Form A (multiple registrations) and Form B (single registration). Information pertaining to embryo transfer and natural calves should be reported to NALF using those forms. We encourage you to complete all information possible in order to put the animals on file for registration or performance evaluation. Prompt reporting after each production season for every calf in the herd helps ensure the timely incorporation of the data into the breed’s genetic evaluation program, which – in turn – offers you and your fellow breeders reliable expected progeny differences (EPDs) for use in selecting and marketing Limousin cattle. Please contact the NALF office if you have questions about any NALF forms.
