Presentation Regarding Animal Pedigree Act

(April 22, 2014) A very worthwhile session concerning the Animal Pedigree Act, and the possibility that it might be repealed, took place during the CLRC Annual Meeting in Calgary on April 5th. About 75 people representing a broad group of the Canadian breed associations were present to hear John Ross of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada outline why repeal of the Act is being considered.

To view the Powerpoint slides that Mr. Ross used, click here. To read a full transcript of the presentation and ensuing discussion, click here. During the meeting, those present nearly unanimously expressed their strong opposition to repeal of the Animal Pedigree Act.


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.
