Tag Numbers

Post by Phil Bertin » Mon Apr 08, 2019 7:58 am

Good Morning,

I am hoping to purchase a breeding pair of kunekune's that are for sale locally however the current owner does not know if the pigs are registered with the society or not, is there any way of checking the registration status of an animal with the ear tag numbers alone?

Thanks in advance.

Phil

Just email the ear tag numbers to the registrar and they will be able to look them up on the database.

There is also an article on kunekune ear tags that you might want to read.

Yes, if you send the tag numbers, gender, and colour (preferably with photo as well) via email to registrar@britishkunekunesociety.org.uk, I will check to see if there is a Herd Book Number associated with the tag.

Best,
