Livestock Inspection

The first method of evaluating breeding stock in many livestock registries is the studbook inspection.

Typically there are prerequisites in terms of pedigree, breed traits and standards (colour, conformation, and height e.t.c) which vary depending on breed and society standards.

At KLBA, livestock inspection involves closer examination of animals by breed and pedigree records by a trained breeds inspector. Based on the set breed standards, the animals is passed to the correct grade through the upgrading scheme.

Process of Inspection

Registered breeds societies have qualified persons who have been trained as breed inspectors. By contacting our office, a breeds inspector closer to you shall be contacted to visit your farm.
