Sending Photographs by E-mail
(May 10, 2013) For those breeds which require photographs of animals to be submitted with applications for registration, CLRC recommends that breeders scan the application forms and e-mail them, along with the required photographs, to CLRC.
Photographs e-mailed directly from a digital camera chip are very often superior in quality and reproduce better on the certificates than printed photos that must then be scanned by CLRC staff. E-mailing both the application and photographs will save mailing time as well. In these cases, we do request payment by credit card or that you have a credit balance on file.
For transfers, the photographs can still be e-mailed with a copy of the transfer application and certificate, but the original certificate must then be mailed to CLRC.

Inbreeding Coefficients and Virtual Mating
(April 11, 2013) CLRC announces that Inbreeding Coefficients are now published on our website for all breeds except Swine. We hope to add Swine in the near future.
Inbreeding Coefficients measure the degree of repeating or common ancestors that exist in the pedigree. Coefficients are measured as a percentage from 0% to 100% or values from 0 to 1. Our website uses percentages. An animal with a coefficient of 0% has no known common ancestors that appear on both the sire and dam side of the pedigree. If you were to breed an animal to its sire or dam, the resulting offspring will have an inbreeding coefficient of at least 25%, depending on the number of other common ancestor lines that might appear in the pedigree.
In addition, CLRC now offers a virtual mating service which will determine the inbreeding coefficient for a proposed mating and display a five generation pedigree and common ancestor list. The virtual mating option appears at the bottom of each animal page and you can select a mate based on member ID number, animal name or registration number. If you select the ID number option, you can select one or more or all animals owned by that member.
Animal Photos and Marking Diagrams now available on-line

On-Line Extended Pedigrees now Show Repeating Ancestry
(November 6, 2012) As step 1 in our efforts to supply our members with more information on repeating or common ancestry, we are now providing additional information with the extended pedigree for each animal in our on-line Members and Pedigrees database. This is accessed here. When displaying an animal's record, there is a link to the extended pedigree near the bottom of the page. This will display a 5 generation pedigree.
What is new is a list of repeating ancestors which is sorted by the percentage of the pedigree that each animal represents. In addition, there is an alphabetic list of ancestors. This latter list will allow you to more easily compare pedigrees of animals that you are considering to mate to identify common ancestry.
Furthermore, we also offer a 12 generation analysis of the pedigree for repeating ancestors. A link appears below the 5 generation tree. You will experience a short delay while the database is doing the analysis.
To clearly show repeating ancestry, the 5 generation pedigree tree is also colour coded. The key repeating males are displayed in bright red and the females in magenta. Their ancestors are displayed in dark red and purple respectively. When an animal does not repeat in the pedigree, it appears in black.
Please watch this page for more related services as they are added.
