Mulefoot Pig Recovery
How the Recovery Process Works:
Owners of Recovery candidates submit answers to questions on the Recovery Application (attached below), and include clear, close up photographs of their prospect. You need to include at least one of each: frontal view, rear view, two side images (one each side, prefer photo with back relaxed, not arched as in feeding time), and close ups of all four feet. Muddy or out of focus photos may hinder Recovery process.
Please include documentation of lineage, bills of sale, parentage certificates of registration from other Registries, farrow date, and any other known historical data that we can use to help round the application. It is extremely important to obtain this information before submitting photos as this is a lengthy and time consuming process.
Animal must have ear tag or notches so that we can distinguish photos of multiple pig applications. Mark photos to expedite review process. AMBA requires ear tags or notches for Registration.
Send the photos and application to AMBA at AmericanMulefootRecovery@gmail.com.
See examples of acceptable photos below.
Registry will then contact you with the decision. Please refer to the Breed Characteristic outlined on the home page, or the published American Mulefoot Hog Record Book, see below, for detailed description of breed standards to better understand physical characteristics that we will be judging.
If your submissions is accepted into the Recovery Program it will receive an "R" designation in the registry. Their offspring will need to go through a photo approval process and if approved will receive an "R-1" registry number. The following generation will be considered fully incorporated into the registry if breeding occurs with fully registered mate.
We ask that you do not submit application for your recovery prospect for "R" registration until they are at least 6 months of age, so that we can see mature characteristics.
Please do not send payment until you have received an answer from AMBA if your pig meets eligibility standards.
