To Transfer an animal already registered with the NAWSA you must be the owner of record.
You have four options when you sell a registered NAWSA to a new owner.
1) You have the right to sell the animal WITHOUT the registration papers. In this case the animal is considered 'grade' and can never again produce registered offspring.
2) Fill out the back of your original certificate of registration. The original certificate has a raised NAWSA seal. Copies are not accepted. If you have lost your original, please contact our Registrar, GLM Registry. NOTE- GLM keeps track of current ownership. If the current owner submits an online transfer of ownership, the transaction is processed and recorded, and the old certificate is considered null and void and the owner is asked to destroy it. If you are not sure if a certificate of registry is current, please check with GLM as they have the current ownership records.
3) The owner of record with our registrar GLM registry must initiate the transfer and may complete a transfer online through GLMRegistry.com.
NOTE only the current owner on file with GLM is eligible to make a transfer.
Please contact NAWSA@GLMRegistry with questions, they are happy to help!
4) You may register and transfer a lamb in the same transaction. All requirements of registration and transfer must be met. Combination Registration and Transfers of lambs at the same time must submit a Registration Application AND the Transfer of Lambs at Time of Registration Form
Transfer of Bred Ewe: If you are transferring the ownership of a bred ewe, please submit a Lease Borrow Ram or Bred Ewe Form found on our forms page. You will still be required to sign the registration paperwork as the breeder, as you were responsible for the mating, and will need to verify the pedigree.
NOTE- Owners have the option to sell animals without their Certificate of Registration being passed to the new owner, and in such cases the animal is then considered 'grade' and can not produce registered offspring.
