On October 1, the UBB will be transitioning to a new computer system and genetic evaluation. Livestock Genetic Services and records management in collaboration with the Small Registry System in Kingsville, Texas, will now handle all UBB registrations, database programming and genetic evaluation. You may be familiar with Livestock Genetic Services since they handle the genetic evaluation for several other associations, including Brangus, Beefmaster and Santa Gertrudis. The Small Registry System staff that will handle our day-to-day recordkeeping is housed in the Santa Gertrudis Breeders International office. This change will allow us to make monumental advancement in the online registration system.
