Pineywoods Cattle Registry & Breeders Association


Dear PCBRA Members and Friends,

I have started up a database of the cattle registered so far, and it looks pretty good aside from a few holes that we are trying to fill in.  Please look over the registration application – and then fill out a bunch of them so we can find out just where we are with this important breed.

Registrations are important to keep track of the numbers of the breed, and to keep track of who has what.  I also find them useful for tracking the different bloodlines of the breed.  We need this information so that we don’t lose any more important components of the breed.  This will take work on everyone’s part – but together we can all make a huge difference and give this breed intact to the next generation.  Our ancestors did this for us – and we owe it to the next one coming along.  

It helps me for folks to give some indication of the family strain that the cattle come from.  I know that in some cases this information is going to be impossible to get, but in most cases it is possible to at least state that the ancestors were Conway, or Carter, or whatever.  I try to include as much information as I can on the registration certificate, but more information is always better than less!  

It also helps for each animal to have some sort of unique identification, such as a brand, an ear tag, or a tattoo.  This may be troublesome in some situations, but it really helps sort out which cow is which in the event of some disaster such as a death – or a hurricane!

Thanks to all the breeders for keeping up with these cattle – and thanks for reading this plea for registrations.

Best wishes,

D. P. Sponenberg 

The link below will take you to a .pdf file of the official PCRBA Registration Form.  You may print this out and complete one copy for each animal to be registered.  Each registration application must include photographs of the animal: one direct shot of the face and one side shot of the head/body.
Please remember that it is the duty of the owner of the dam at the time of the birth of the calf to register the calf.  Registrations are free to PCRBA members; the membership fee is only $35 per year for each herd.  Please send registration applications to:
