  • Herd Prefix Explained
    Every breeder in the PDCA registry has their own unique Herd Prefix. Every animal in the registry has the Herd Prefix of its breeder included in its name. A Herd Prefix is typically short, and might include your last name, initials, farm name or an abbreviation of that name. The Herd Prefix can go before or after the individual name of the animal. Little Farm Lucy Ace of Clovebrook Your Herd Prefix should be included in the name of all offspring that you are the breeder of. If your desired Herd Prefix is already in use; the registrar will contact you with available options. If you do not list a Herd Prefix when you first join PDCA, the registrar will assign one.
