Pedigree

TCR Pedigree is a pedigree that is compiled from the TCR database of TCR registered cobs. A TCR Pedigree therefore shows a TCR registered cob and any of its TCR registered parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents. Any of its parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents that are not TCR registered (and that are therefore not recorded of the TCR database) are shown on a TCR Pedigree as ‘Not Recorded’. TCR registered parents (the sire and/or dam) can be added (declared) as TCR Pedigree either as part of a TCR Registration Application or at any time after TCR registration.

TCR Pedigree must be verified according to the following TCR requirements: -

Where both TCR registered parents (the sire and the dam) are added (declared) as TCR Pedigree, then both the sire and the dam must be verified by an image (photograph) of either a completed Covering Certificate or a DNA parentage test report.

Where only one TCR registered parent (the dam) is added (declared) as TCR Pedigree, then the dam must be verified by an image (photograph) of either a completed TCR Dam Verification or a DNA parentage test report.

Where only one TCR registered parent (the sire) is added (declared) as TCR Pedigree, then the sire must be verified by an image (photograph) of a DNA parentage test report.
