De Nederlandse Sabelpootkriel

Zo kennen we, als afgeleide van de kleurslag porselein, de kleurslag isabel-porselein. Hier is het zwart vervangen door het recessieve parelgrijs! Het recessieve parelgrijs heeft tevens tot gevolg dat de goudbruine grondkleur is verdund tot isabelkleurig. Door het inbrengen van dominant wit in de kleurslag porselein is de kleurslag oker-witgepareld ontstaan. Een nieuwe kleurslag: Porselein Blauwgetekend Zoals u wellicht heeft gezien werden op de onlangs gehouden Noordshow door Joop Hageman en Jo Dommerholt sabelpootkrielen in de porselein blauwgetekende kleurslag, ter erkenning, ingezonden.

Department of Agriculture (USDA) published a final rule establishing general regulations for improving the traceability of U.S. livestock moving interstate. The rule became effective on March 11, 2013. “The United States now has a flexible, effective animal disease traceability system for livestock moving interstate, without undue burdens for ranchers and U.S. livestock businesses,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “The final rule meets the diverse needs of the countryside where states and tribes can develop systems for tracking animals that work best for them and their producers, while addressing gaps in our overall disease response efforts. Over the past several years, USDA has listened carefully to America's farmers and ranchers, working collaboratively to establish a system of tools and safeguards that will help us target when and where animal diseases occur, and help us respond quickly.”
