Society Flockbook

The Valais Blacknose Sheep Society publishes the record of registrations for all sheep included in the Registry. Records are separated into three primary categories of Foundation, Record and Registered categories and included in the respective flockbook sections.

Ownership information is current as of the time of publication but is not updated with subsequent publications. An electronic file of the flockbook is available, permission to reproduce is granted provided that information is not edited or altered.

The flockbook is based on information provided by breeders in registration applications and includes information on the animal, its parentage, foundation breeding, color and ownership records. The status of the animal is based on the most recent reports from breeders and the VBSS requests that breeders provide yearly updates of their flock status in order to maintain as accurate and complete a record as possible.
