I just want to know the breed of this girl. Is she a dairy breed? Do the tags in her ear her meen she is registered?

THANKS!

She looks like a Swiss/Nubian cross to me-maybe a Nubian/Saanen?
That tag looks like it is either a electronic tracking tag, or a identification tag. And unless she came with papers, no, she is not registered.

The owner would know. One of the first things to do when you want a goat is- do your homework. Then once you buy, ask to see everything. Registration papers (if any), vaccine records, worming records, date of birth, breed, mother, father, etc. Sorry if I got carried away.:doh:The tag is probably either identification or tracking, and she looks maybe Alpine/Saanen, Togg/Saanen, or something else crossed with Saanen.

With her build, she is all dairy. Definitely part Nubian. Probably crossed with Alpine or Saanan. The tag in her ear is either an auction tag or a Scrapies tag.

The little metal tag on the edge of her ear is a Scrapies tag. The plastic one is either an auction tag or a 4-H/FFA fair tag.
The Scrapies tag tells me that she is not registered.

I vote Nubian/Saanen for breed.
