CGS Classification Program Cancelled for 2020

During a very recent Board meeting the CGS Board voted to cancel classification service for 2020. The decision was a pragmatic one, but, also done with sadness. The situation revolving around the current health crisis is moving at a terrific pace but still leaves many questions unanswered.

CGS will work with each applicant for service regarding any funds forwarded to CGS already. The decision of each applicant will be fully respected. CGS will use 2020 to further enhance the program and to work on advanced training for classifiers.

The CGS board felt a great responsibility toward the safety and health of both our staff and members who were planning to make use of this important service. The Board is highly hopeful that classification will be back, better than ever, in 2021.

Questions or comments may be directed to the CGS office.

Important Message from the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation

CLRC is pleased to announce the release of latest version of Electronic services, ERA 5.0 at The details are provided in the attached document.

This is the biggest set of self-service program improvements yet provided by CLRC. The key to better, faster and more economical service is to encourage the greater use of these self-service programs. They are also designed to prevent errors so common on manual paper applications and are as self explanatory as possible.

Although these programs have been extensively tested, we encourage feedback from members if they experience problems. The sooner we are notified, the sooner we can make further improvements.

CLRC looks forward to continuing to provide better service to all members in the future. During the current COVID 19 crisis, CLRC staff will be mostly working from home. Communication is best by e-mail.
