Mitzvah #164 - Firstborn Kosher animals

It's a Mitzva to sanctify all firstborn male Kosher animals, by declaring "This animal is Kadosh".

Even if one did not do so, the animal is still holy.

Nowadays first born Kosher male animals have to be given to a Cohen who can eat them after they becomes permanently blemished.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Sanctify for Me all firstborn... animals" (Shemot 13:1)
