Hello,
We have a small farm in SW Michigan raising boer/ nubian crosses for meat. I started in 4H but decided what the heck! I'll keep a few :D I have a few registered Boer goats and hopefully will get a few more next year and possibly start to show. Haven't met anyone around me that shows yet so we'll see... Trying to do as much research first before I jump in :book:

ps My farm name isn't RoseBoerGoats. I just so happened to live on rose lane and haven't came up with a farm name yet :ponder: Still working on that...

I did a google search and there is a Rose boer goats in Indiana. Is there a way to search ABGA to see if a name is available? I'd hate to accidentally duplicate someone else's name.
Thanks!

Welcome! We were just in MI in June visiting family! Sure is a gorgeous place. :)

You can have the same herd name as another breeder, but your herd prefix/letters will need to be different. I'm sure there is another Crossroads Boer Goats out there somewhere! :) For instance if you kept the name Rose Boer Goats, and the other farm with the same name has a herd prefix of RBG, then you will need to think of different letters. Somebody had already claimed CBG for Crossroads Boer Goats, so I had to come up with a different prefix.
