1. Website - ILROnline

We have made it even easier for you to register over the internet. It is also the cheapest option for registration. Registrations through ILROnline can be done day or night and when YOU have the time. ILROnline is web based so there is no need to download software and it works in real time so records are updated as they’re entered and you can choose “paperless” registrations as well.

*Please note that ILROnline cannot process ET registrations at this stage. ET registrations can still be completed on the previous registration system through the website.Click here for detailed instructions.

2. Telephone

We have a great team of registrars in the Holstein office who are able to assist you with all your queries and register your animals over the phone. To assist the process, members are reminded to have their herd book numbers, full bull names and AI dates with you before making the call.

Call to register on the toll free number: 1300 788 188

3. Paper

Tried and tested but dropping popularity is the paper registrations. All members wanting to do their registrations this way need to fill in all details in the Calf Registrations Books and post back to the Holstein Australia office: Holstein Australia, Registrations Department, PO Box 489, Hawthorn BC, Vic 3122.

4. Dairy Computer Software

All members can use their MISTRO or EASYDAIRY programs to send animal registration information. The registration process is useful as members will have entered the calf information on the MISTRO/EASY DAIRY program already and it is then a matter of pressing a few buttons and filling in any missing information. It then sends the animal information to us via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

5. Calf registration Excel template

Members can enter the calf details into a Holstein Australia calf registration template (using Microsoft Excel) to register calves. The template is available on the website and is the same as the Calf Registration book, accept entered into the computer rather than paper. When the calf details have been entered save the file onto your computer and email the excel file to Holstein Australia on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
