30 Day Foal Notification

30 Day Foal Notification / Receipt of DNA Samples

As part of an industry wide intiative, breeders are required to notify Weatherbys Ireland General Stud Book within 30 days of the birth of a thoroughbred or non-thoroughbred foal born in Ireland and bred for racing

The notification of birth will be automatically triggered by the submission of DNA (blood and markings). There will be no additional fees for notification of birth within the 30-day window.

The 30-day foal notification is a mandatory obligation.

It is integral to the welfare and traceability mandate for the equine industry and will assist in the proviso for life after Brexit, particularly with regards to the free movement of equidae.

The 30 day foal notification will also enable HRI and the IHRB, on behalf of the industry, to trace the whereabouts of thoroughbreds and non-thoroughbreds in Ireland from the earliest stage.

This is important for the welfare, biosecurity and disease control measures which underpin horse movement and are the cornerstone of European legislation for equidae.
