PROPOSED AMENDMENT #3
ARTICLE 19 RULES OF ELIGIBILITY
Be it resolved that Section 6 (g), which reads:
(g) That every fortieth (40th) foal registered shall be selected for random DNA testing to verify parentage and that the recorded owner(s) of the stallion, mare and foal shall agree to permit such DNA genotyping for parentage verification of their animals. Failure of an owner to comply with this regulation shall automatically place the Certificate of Registration for this foal under suspension. The DNA genotyping for parentage verification shall be at the Society’s expense and the Society and Canadian Livestock Records Corporation shall keep the records, with a copy to the recorded owner(s).
BE DELETED AND REPLACED WITH:
(g) As a condition of registration, the results of DNA Parentage Verification for all foals must be on file with Canadian Livestock Records Corporation.
The value of DNA and eventually having all Welsh Ponies and Cobs DNA’d, has been discussed for years. That goal will be accomplished with all foals being DNA’d prior to registration. With all foals being DNA’d, there is no longer a need for every 40th foal to be DNA’d.
