The IPPR does not require you to pay a annual fee to become a member of the Idaho Pasture Pig Registry. Instead there is a one-time owner or farm prefix registration and that will give you a lifetime breeder membership. In order to register piglets with this registry, you must have your farm registered and have a breeder prefix.
The breeders of the piglets will be responsible to for the actual registration of the piglets.
All sow owners will be able to send in a Litter Notification upon the birth of their litters free of charge and you do not need to have your prefix registered to do so.
