    Hi,
    I am looking at getting a 99.9% boer buck as my new herd sire. My question is would I still be able to register the kids since the herd sire needs to be DNA tested? I have not had a buck under 100% but from looking at the ABGa site it looks as if the sire just needs to be 96% and up?
    Thank you

    No kids can be registered now unless sire has been DNA tested. So if you buy him with just a App or his papers then you will need to send in a hair sample for DNA. This is with any buck of any percentage.

    Right all kids will be registerable after you send his DNA test in.

    You can register your buck before DNA, because you will need the registration number from him to be able to DNA him for ABGA. His Sire must have DNA on file or your buck cannot be tested.

    hi, when did that start, do you know? thanks

    so, all babies, if you want to register with ABGA, the buck daddy needs to be DNA tested? I'm learning.
    thank you!!!

    DNA testing started in January of 2015. All bucks must be DNA’ed to sire registered kids. This includes unregistered bucks as well. For example, if you breed an ABGA 100% doe to a Spanish buck, in order to have ABGA 50% kids, you must DNA the buck even though he isn’t registered nor a boer goat.
