HOW TO FILL OUT YOUR ENROLLMENT FORMS
Below are instructions on how to enroll your animals for 2011, the forms are identical to last year’s forms. These instructions are also for “online” members submitting their enrollments “online”.
• SEASON S/F – this first column is the calving season what is entered is the season she was the preceding year. If you changed from spring to fall calving you enter an F for fall calving and vice/versa.
• DISP CODE – enter the appropriate disposal code if this female is no longer in your herd. “Online” members need to enter a disposal date, you can use the date you are entering not the actual disposal date if unknown.
• HOLD Y/N – this column is for females that are still in your possession but you don’t wish to enroll for 2011. This is also the column that determines if your female is to be enrolled or not. If there is a N (NO) in the column this female will be enrolled for 2011. If you want to HOLD this female and not enroll her for 2011 you enter a Y (YES). Be aware if you put a female on HOLD for 2011 and then wish to enroll her later on in the year you will be billed a late fee of $25 on top of the regular enrollment fee of $25. If you put a female on HOLD in 2011 and then wish to enroll her in 2012 or a later year you will be billed a late fee of $25, a reactivation fee of $25, and the regular $25 enrollment fee for the year she is being enrolled. Online members enter a HOLD date which would be the date you are entering, if you wish to put this female on HOLD and not enroll for 2011.
**TO ENROLL ENTER A N (NO) IN THE HOLD COLUMN **
**TO HOLD & NOT ENROLL ENTER A Y (YES) IN THE HOLD COLUMN**
