Ballinloan Jaegerbomb’s passport has been withdrawn by the British Cattle Movement Service (BCMS), according to the British Limousin Cattle Society.
BCMS has withdrawn passports for various Ballinloan and all Ballinloan-related animals, according to the society.
Releasing a statement on Facebook, the society said: “BCMS has sent notices to the owners of the relevant animals.”
“The cause appears to be errors relating to the registration of either the date of birth and/or the parentage of the animals concerned.”
“This means that the pedigree of these animals and any progeny are in doubt.”
Members should immediately ensure that any such animals owned by them are properly described on the register, taking into account the BCMS notice, the society advises.
“BLCS will be making amendments to the register to reflect the information available from BCMS but we have not received copies of all of the notices.”
“Members who own any animals on the list may wish to contact BCMS for more information as to the reason for the notice.”
“BLCS will publish further details as information comes into our possession. We will amend the register for any animals we are aware of.”
"Consider the position carefully"
“Members considering purchasing or selling any Ballinloan and/or Ballinloan-related animal, including progeny, should consider the position carefully before doing so and take their own legal advice. the statement concluded.
Last March, the society confirmed that the parentage issue with the popular AI bull was successfully resolved.
A statement released in March 2018 stated: Through DNA testing, the correct dam has been confirmed as Ballinloan Geneva UK 542434/401306. The pedigree for the bull will be amended accordingly. For clarity, Ballinloan Jaegerbomb retains his pedigree status.”
