Joining CSBA/Registering via CLRC

ISBONA recognizes the Canadian Sheep Breeders Association (CSBA) as its breed association for Icelandic sheep and it is under the auspices of this group that purebred Icelandic sheep may be registered. The Canadian Livestock Records Corporation (CLRC) is a separate organization (with ties to CSBA) that is responsible for handling registrations and transfers of purebred, registered Icelandic sheep. For ISBONA members to register their lambs, they must join CSBA (renewable yearly) and must possess documentation of ownership of their purebred, registered stock. CLRC then will handle all registration duties including transfers. All of these details are covered on the CLRC website under Sheep.

To register/transfer sheep, you will need a CLRC issued Flock Code (see www.clrc.ca - "On-Line Services") or CLRC membership number. US members must identify sheep by tattooing the Flock Code and a number in their ears. Canadian members may alterntively follow Canadian tagging requirements where a tattoo or dual ear tags are acceptable. Icelandic Sheep are registered under the "Sheep" designation in CLRC.
