Hog Registration Application

This application is used for both adult hogs not previously registered and piglets over the age of 90 days that were not previously registered on a Litter Registration.

Only a Member in Good Standing who is the Breeder of the hog to be registered may complete this registration application. The hog must be from registered parentage. 

For more information see Registration and Transfer Procedures

 The fee to register each hog is $10. 

Please Note:
Use one form per registration.

Effective December 1, 2023, all hogs or individual piglets that are being registered MUST have an ear tag with either a 15 digit USDA 840 number OR a tag with the assigned AGHA Pre-Approved Tag ID Prefix along with the unique number/letter combination for that farm and hog. An animal without one of these tag types will not be registered.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for your paperwork to be processed.


Farm Name: The name by which a farm is known. E.g. Goats ‘n Hogs High Heaven on Paradise Hill.

Herd Prefix: A short, unique identifier of letters (letters and numbers are also possible) that precedes a guinea hog’s registered name and will be printed on the animal’s pedigree as well as those of any offspring. E.g. GNHH or G3HPH. A short name, such as the breeder’s name can be used. E.g. Biggers, Celesky, etc.

If a Herd Prefix was not chosen at the time of membership application, please indicate Herd Prefix choice and select “Yes” from the radio button when requesting a Tag Prefix. Otherwise, email  and  with your Herd Prefix choice.

Tag Prefix: Exactly 3 letters. No numbers permitted. E.g. GNH or HHH or GHP, etc. These three letters precede a farm unique number on an animal’s ear tag.  The AGHA does not endorse any ear tag vendors, but all browsers will present many different vendors and many tag choices.

If using 840 tags, a Tag prefix is not required since 840 tags already contain farm identifying information. Each state has its own rules on how to get an 840 tag premise / farm ID. The best place to start the process of a farm / premise ID is the state’s Department of Agriculture.
