This establishes permanent record for the animal in the MJHB&R and will show a pictorial progression of lineages, offspring (as they occur) as well as documented history of the animal. Any animals not accepted into the MJHB&R for whatever reason, will be fully refunded within 1 business day from rejection with a letter of explanation or request of further validation.
To obtain a permanent Certificate of Registration: (no charge)

Certificate of Registration with the official MJHB&R
This Certificate will include a current picture of your cow, bull or calf. It will be embossed for authenticity and beautiful enough to frame. Details of the cow's direct pedigree and other pertinent information will be included as a professional addition to your personal animal files. Further information on the animal may be located on the Pedigree Listing page for that animal. Certificates will be issued and mailed upon acceptance into the Herd Book & Registry at no extra charge.
Certificates of Registration Categories:
Red/Gold Certificates: Permanent Certificates for Miniature Jersey cattle (42" and under at age 3 years)
Blue/Gold Certificates: Permanent Certificates for Breeding Stock (above 42", and under 44" at age 3 yrs)
Green/Gold Certificates: Temporary Certificates for all cattle from birth to age three years (Junior Stock)
When the Junior Stock reaches three years of age, the breeder will need to submit a current photo as well as a recent measurement (Vet Height Certified if small standard) to receive a permanent Certificate of Registration.
After February 1, 2014, all small standard breeding stock must have their height "Veterinarian Certified" at age three years (possibly sooner, depending on the individual case) to be considered for entry/registration or to obtain a permanent Certificate. A signed Vet Height Form must be on file with the MJHB&R. This includes any bulls or cows which have a standard Jersey as their dam. This form is located below and may be printed from this site for free, then scanned and emailed, or snail mailed to:
MJHB Administrator, P.O. Box 2022, Cleveland, GA 30528
The Vet measuring the animal is certifying by their signature on this form, that he/she did in fact measure the stated animal as described on the form and the measurement given is accurate for that animal. All mid-sized (small standard) cattle currently listed in the MJHB&R must have current measurements, pictures and complete DNA information on file as of January 1st, 2014 to be grandfathered into this policy. After this date, no grandfathered animals will be allowed. Any cattle removed from the Pedigree Listing because of incomplete information must be re-submitted under the new policies since ample time was given to bring them to completion. No exceptions will be made. Please keep in mind that our focus here is to preserve/create miniatures and not duplicate the AJCA.

When the Herd Book reaches 1000 entries of actual miniatures (we are really close!), it is my desire to publish this Book in print. These copies will be available for sale to interested parties, with all proceeds returned to the MJHB&R. Then, a new volume will follow bi-annually as our numbers grow. The orignal and Official Miniature Jersey Herd Book will contain pictures of all miniature Jersey cattle taken from the Miniature Jersey Pedigree Listing as well as pictures submitted by owners/breeders from their farms. The first volume will contain the actual documented history of our breed, but will not be repeated in future volumes. We feel that this is yet another way to publicize our cattle as well as have our cattle in the hands of folks who would never see them otherwise. If you are interested in particpating in this option, please let us know.
