Not really sure which forum topic this goes under but here it goes: I am about to fill out the transfer ownership section on our four Nigerian dwarf dairy goat girls’ papers, and I think I will become a member of the adga first. We plan to register their babies next year and sell the ones we don’t keep. The problem is that I am confused about the ID section on our two bucks’, already transferred to us, papers. Their breeder made it very easy for us and did it all with us while we were there. It’s been a few months, and I can’t remember anything from when we were at their place except: “Goats! I’m getting them! They’re actually letting us take them with us!” So, their is an ID listed with my name on the papers, but I don’t know where the number came from. Was it a temporary ID? If I didn’t become an adga member would I use that same ID in the transfer ownership section of the registration papers with the girls as well? And when I create an adga membership will I have to transfer the bucks to the member account so it’s easier to register their babies and keep it straight? I assume I will have to pay a fee to transfer the bucks, too, even though I am just moving them to a new account. Also, should I wait to get a herd name until after I hear back from the ADGA and get sent my membership information, or can I do it all at once? Their website is written in a way that’s hard for me to understand.
