  1. Goat Management
    I really want to start showing goats once I start my farm again, I'd drive the goats there, but I really don't want to be the one in the ring. Will the ADGA let me do this, and do y'all think $50 would be a good amount to pay someone to show my goats?
  2. Beginners Goat Raising
    Good afternoon everyone, I am having a heck of a time understanding the ADGA guide on tattooing my goats. I was assigned my tattoo GB57, which is all well and good, but then the guide talks about assigning tattoos based on year and birth order. I believe their example was M for 2020 and 1,2,3...

    I want heavy, hardy and tall Nubian's. At least 250 lbs, 35 inches (withers), live with little to no worming and trimmings, make lovely milkers and also have excellent breed conformation. Once I get the "look" I want they'd probably be around 60-70% Nubian and 40-30% meat goat and then I would...

    Would any ADGA members be willing to sign a NOA letter for three of my Nubian does? I do not have any members near me that could come evaluate them so I was thinking I send pictures to someone and have them mail the letters to me.

    I have a doe registered with the MDGA (profile pic) but i have an ADGA registered buck. would their kid be register-able? If so, with who? The MDGA or the ADGA? If it is not possible, I am on the look out for a MDGA registered nigerian dwarf buck to rent to breed her. Do you know anybody in...

    Hi all! This is probably a silly question but I was curious and couldn't find the answer online. I was reading the ADGA's breed standards ( for some breeds of goats (specifically Nigerian Dwarves since that is what I mainly have) and noticed it said, "..The face...

    Up for consideration is a purebred Nubian doe kid, already registered with ADGA papers in hand. Doe kid born 4/7/19 350 with papers in hand. She was the smallest out the of quads but she is steadily growing and catching up. This was an intentional inbreeding as I had no unrelated buck to use...

  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi again! I am trying to find a directory of all the herd names registered with the ADGA, so that I can choose one that is not already assigned. I am also trying to figure out what herd is assigned my does' tattoo (SLF8). A link or help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Introductions
    Hi! I am new on here, at least new as a member, have been reading posts for awhile. I need some assistance in tattooing ADGA kids. I get the general 'gist' and have read the ADGA link on tattooing but it still doesn't make sense to me. For whatever reason, lol. So I was assigned a three...
  11. Show Circuit
    Hey, looking into the ADGA shows on thier website, there's not a single one in VA. Is it not updated? I know they are missing at least 1 show on their site because there is a buck show an Ameila county in a few weeks that is adga sancitioned, and I can think of a few others that were in...

    I have two junior girls, one born 4-5-18, the other born 4-24-18, that I’d like to show, however I can only show one goat at a time. Is it possible to “lease” out one of the doelings to someone else to show them at the same time? I’m the only name on my ADGA account and, since I’m a youth...
  13. The Chatter Box
    So I'm seriously considering becoming a member of ADGA and I need a herd name, It was going to be Willow Creek but I feel that I need/want something shorter. I want something peaceful but also something that is going to catch peoples attention. Ideas?
  14. Goat Management
    Hey, all! Back in 2012 when we started, my mom and I both had ADGA memberships. Mine was a junior membership, and I could use her herd name and tattoo numbers. Now that I'm a regular member I've been told by ADGA that I can still use her herd name and tattoo numbers, which is awesome. But I...
  15. Dairy Diaries
    So I have a funny AI story. I raise boer and bought my semen tank from a lady who also raised boer and had a few unmarked canes left. 4 months ago I used one of the straws and it turned out to be an ADGA registered buck. I think its a nubian? The lady I bought it from had no clue. I was...
  16. Introductions
    I thought I should introduce myself but I also have some questions I was hoping others might help me answer. My family and I have 32 acres of property in Northeastern PA that we plan to turn into a homestead. We wanted to get goats for the purposes of milk, cheese, and soap primarily, use what...
  17. Business Buzz
    I am wondering how much I should sell my bred oberhasli does for? They will produce about 2 gallons a day at peak and aren't terrible show goats. I am located in northern California in a pretty urban area. What is your usual price for selling pregnant registered goats?

    I understand what it means for a goat to be polled and what it leads to but what does it mean for a goat to be black? If a goat is polled and black is that a bad thing? :think:

    Our sweet Sassy can be registered under ADGA, or would be a perfect pet. Sassy is a gem of a girl, out of our prized foundation doe, End of the Line Busy Bee. If you are looking for production, Sassy has the pedigree behind her. Her dam gives a quart per milking at her peak, and her half sister...
