  • Herd Name

  • Members of the Canadian Angus Association are required to apply to register a herd name for use when naming Angus Cattle. Words like "Farm", "Angus", "Ranch", or "Ltd." cannot be part of a registered herd name. A herd name should be 16 or less characters, and cannot start with the word RED. The herd name must be the first word (after RED), if it's a red animal) in the animal's name.

    For Example, a member whose farm name is Sunny Day Angus Ranch may choose to register the herd name Sunny Day, and therefore include Sunny Day when naming calves: Red Sunny Day Bluebird. Herd names can be shared between family members if written consent is provided.
