Simbrah Registry – Breed Classification: Notice of New HerdBook Programming Logic for Purebred Simbrah Classifications.
In September of this year, the Trustees and Staff of ASA were notified of a concern regarding the Purebred Simbrah classification some animals received. Upon an in-depth review, ASA determined that the programming logic in HerdBook Services (herdbook.org) from 2013, gave an animal a Purebred Simbrah classification where another interpretation would classify these same animals as Percentage Simbrah.
