The Chamber of Commerce in the city where the goat farm is located would likely have contact info for that employer's farm. Also State of Oregon would have contact info for the farm through Dairy Licensing.
You can ADGA register the goats NOA (Native On Appearance) using the known parentage, and the tatt's shown. THEN when you find the breeder, she can do the paperwork request thru ADGA to upgrade the goats from NOA to full papers
. The breeder must initiate that upgrade, and the buyer (you) must agree to the upgrade.. At least in the meantime you can have the goats on file at ADGA, registered, until you find her. When you find her, give her the upgrade request forms and ask her to initiate it. Offer to pay for the upgrade (if necessary).
You know, times are very difficult for most people in this economy. I am guessing, but maybe
most of the time "lack-of-papers-provided" could be b/cuz of "lack-of-$" (for the fees to ADGA). That might be why some papers get bogged down. Or maybe someone else in the lineage has slowed down by trying to find
service memos, and papers misplaced or get duplicates
We really don't ever know the whole
story in another's situation unless we take the time to show grace to each other
, and ask Qs...giving them time to tell their side and to be equal and fair. The vast majority of people are honest and kind. Its just that "Life happens". If it came down to buying hay or paying fees that month....I would choose hay
. I think you might too.:wink:
Just as a thought...States are changing Laws as to what can be typed/implied online publicly..many people are suing for things written in online posts (and winning). Especially when it's personally identifiable information like names of people and farms. Folks should think about what they write. You might want to edit that post.:shrug:
If you don't have a written agreement between you and the seller, for ADGA papers included in the purchase, likely you can't do anything in small claims court.
