REMINDERS:

  • When registering progeny of commercial animals through Online Live, be sure to note 'BOERX' or 'OTHER' under the Dam Registration Number or 'UBUCK' under the Sire Registration Number.

ABGA CERTIFIED JUDGES

To ensure the safety and security of ABGA members, preserve the integrity of ABGA's Certified Judges program, and reduce liability to ABGA as an organization, annual background checks are now required for all ABGA Certified Judges.


Starting in 2022, all ABGA Certified Judges must submit a Background Check Consent Form to the ABGA office annually and pass a background check to maintain their ABGA Certified Judge status.


Failure to submit a Background Check Consent Form and/or failure to pass a background check will result in the loss of your ABGA Certified Judge status.


If you are already an ABGA Certified Judge, please download and complete the ABGA Certified Judges Background Check Consent Form, and mail or email it (mail@abga.org) to the ABGA office by September 1, 2022.
