Register an animal

If you are looking to register your Guernsey you are in the right place. Please download and complete the animal registration form below, and then submit it using our details on our contact us page.

Option I: E-Registration naming your animals using MINDA service

You can name your animals on line using MindaPRO or entered manually via the Animal Detail Form, these can be obtained through MINDA. As you record each calf, you can write the name of each animal on this form. The names will be entered as part of the calf details and the animals can then be registered using these names. You must enter your herd prefix at the start of each animal’s name.
Note: When using the E-Registration option please do not enter the status suffix of each animal. Instead allow room for it within the 25 spaces when naming the animal. The computer inserts status suffix during processing.

Option II: Manual registration, naming your animals on an Animals Eligible for Registration (AER) form

You can request an AER form from MINDA to write in the name of each animal. An AER is pre-printed form recording calf, sire and dam information. The office will then manually enter the name and register each animal individually. Remember this is a chargeable form from MINDA and is only available for MINDA clients.
