    We are thinking about purchasing a couple boers that are registered purebred. They are 99.9% Boer. My question is, if we bred them to a 100% buck, can we registerd them as fullbloods? Or will they only be eligible for american purebred?

    It will make them american purebreds....

    A FB is 100% boer ........and a purebred is... a high percentage....boer.....and not 100% ...in which.... was started with.... for example.... a nubian bred to a FB boer buck.... which started the kids as 50% registered...and that offspring...will have 75%..kids.. and so on.... until you achieve Purebred Status.... if bred to... a FB registered buck... :wink: :thumb:

    Ok. And I did mean to say can we register the offspring(of the does we'd be buying) as fullbloods. I guess I was just typing too fast and didn't re-read what I wrote!
    I guess I was only wondering because AGBA says "Does between 93.7 percent up to 99.9 percent are eligible for an American Purebred registration." The kids would technically be 99.95, so I am guessing would still fall into the purebred classification?

    yeah a percentage boer could be PB, but never FB.

    yep....a Registered Purebred... can never be 100% Registered FB boer.... because the Doe... that originally was bred to the FB registered buck... started out... being another breed of goat like nubian...spanish....fainter...ect...... bred to a FB registered boer buck..... the original Doe that started it all....also didn't have to be registered... and it doesn't matter... if you breed a FB unregistered Doe .....to A registered FB buck ...their offspring ....will still start out as 50% registered..and never will be FB registered....even though.... she is FB boer....... :( the only way... the offspring will be FB Registered.... is ..for a FB Registered boer buck to breed a FB registered Boer Doe..... :hug:

    Your offspring... will always be... high Purebred Registered status....never Registered FB's...hope that makes sense... no matter how many times bred... :wink:

    If you breed unregistered does to a FB buck, you can only register doelings as 50%. You can't register the bucklings.
    We have a registered buck, 1 registered doe, and 4 unregistered does. When 2 of our unregistered does kidded this past summer, one had a gorgeous buckling, the other had a buckling and a doeling. Couldn't get papers for the bucks, but I have paperwork to send in for my doeling.

    Yes... any Doelings ...can be registered ...no matter what.. percentage they are.... the bucks are a different story.... below.... is from the ABGA site ...on their rights and status....for the percentage they are...


    This is from ABGA under "American Percentage"...

    * Bucks between 50 percent up to 96.7 are eligible for a record of pedigree.
    * Bucks between 50 percent up to 96.7 can not produce registered offspring.
    * Bucks between 50 percent up to 96.7 can not show under the ABGA sanctioned show program.



    And this is the American Purebred Status...with ABGA

    * Bucks between 96.8 percent up to 99.9 are eligible for American Purebred registration.
    * Bucks from the American Purebred classification are eligible to produce registered offspring.
    * Bucks between 96.8 percent up to 99.9 are eligible to show in Fullblood classes under the ABGA sanctioned show program.
