Why should I buy registered Corriente stock?
There are so many reasons for registering your stock and buying registered stock, whether you are a breeder, roper or beef producer.
- Conservation: Registries are an essential part of breed conservation
- Education: Registries are a great source for learning more about the breed, its attributes, its history and how to raise them
- Breeding: Pedigrees ensure that an animal is purebred and its ancestry is known. This means it will breed true to type and produce consistent, replicable and predictable characteristics in its progeny.
- Diversity: Without a registry, you won’t be able to find breeders with known quality. The genetics will disappear or become too inline within a lifetime. Ask China what happened when they put the wall up and couldn’t access fresh genetics. If a country can’t keep up good genetic lines, you can’t on your ranch. You need other breeders with known quality.
