LIVESTOCK NOTES

Breeds unique to North America are printed in bold.

1 Some Milking Shorthorns qualify for the "N" (Native) designation. These animals have pedigrees tracing only to ancestors registered before the herdbook was opened to outcrosses with other dairy breeds;this is a globally endangered population. The status of any Milking Shorthorn can be verified through the AMSS.

2 Cattleman's Texas Longhorn Registry

3 Includes horses registered by the Spanish Mustang Registry, Southwest Spanish Mustang Association, Spanish Barb Breeders Association, Horse of the Americas, American Indian Horse Registry, and several strain specific registries. Feral horses from the Cerbat, Pryor, and Sulphur areas include many that would meet the criteria as well as some that do not.

4 Colonial Spanish Horse strains that are bred in isolation and that also contribute to the combined population.

5 Includes Cherokee and Huasteca influenced horses.

6 Includes Shackleford, Ocracoke, Corolla, Carrot, Core, Hatteras, and Cedar horses.

7 Includes horses whose pedigrees are absent of outcrosses after 1930.
