IGSCR is Blessed

We at IGSCR are so blessed to have these wonderful knowledgeable staff in our midst.  For the support of our members and their special animals, Researcher and judges play a vital role.  A special thank you to Laurel and Regina for all you do.  It is not possible for one person alone to hold down a registry. John and I can’t do this alone. So we thank you so much for all your help and support.

We also can’t support you, our members without all of you standing behind us cheering us onward and upward.  We are here to support you!  Please tell us your concerns, how you would like to see our registry improve, what programs you would like to see.

We are all a family here at IGSCR

Peggy Boone We at IGSCR want to give a special thank you to former registry owners/registrars for their great service. Each and every one of them made a huge impact on what our registry is today.  Each one made huge changes and additions to programs. Some are Robert Johnson, Emily Yoder, Melinda Wilson.  Former registry names were The IDGR, IDGR, IDGR-IFBR.

I, Peggy, took over the registry in March 2018. 2018 was a very rocky year with hubby being so sick most of the year and me working employment full-time for 1 1/2 years 6-7 days per week, running the farm/dairy single-handedly and also the registry. Now we are working hard on the registry.

I’ve been a teacher of human genealogy for many years, learn from registrars of 4 different registries how to research and enter accurate pedigrees, correct naming practices, what supporting documents are necessary to have correct registrations, which we can stand behind as a registry.

We at IGSCR are looking forward to working directly with you and your animals. We are truly a family .. IGSCR, Our Team and Our Members. Thank you for standing behind us every step of the way.

Mark Hill

(Assistant Registrar Trainee – Database Specialist)

Although I am new to raising SCI Goats, I am not new to raising livestock.  I’ve lived on a farm all of my life, having raised beef cattle, Pygmy goats, chickens, sheep, horses, turkeys and a variety of other animals.  Currently, we have a small herd of SCI goats and I am very interested in contributing to the preservation of the breed.  We also raise registered Irish Dexter Cattle and are looking to expand our heritage animals in the future.  I also dabble in genealogy, hosting three websites to make transcribed data free for searching.  My real-life job is as a banker managing a loan department at a small community bank.

John Boone John is our web designer. With many years of hard coding experience, web testing, etc.  John is the brains behind how we do our website.  I have a special idea to make our online shows much like a live show.  I, Peggy, don’t know how to do it.  With a click of the button, John has figured out how judges can move photos around and view them like they would in a live show.  That is just one example of John’s work.

We are adding John as one of our registrars, to help get caught up and stay caught up on our registrations.  He put our database up ‘on the cloud’ so that we can both be working on the same software and not interfere with each other’s work.

John has 10 levels of human genealogy certification and is also a software specialist.

His skills are going to help us greatly. Thanks, John

Laurel Sherrie One of our SCI Researcher specializing in identifying lineage and bloodlines within the breed, when possible. I reside in California and has a small herd of SCIs. Although I’ve only had SCIs for 3 years, I am dedicated to helping preserve the SCI breed and refer to the “Managing Breeds for a secure future” book by Dr. Phillip Sponenberg, regarding the importance of bloodlines in preserving a breed’s variety of genetics. He says, “Managing bloodlines, strains and varieties within a breed is important for long-term maintenance of the genetic variability that is crucial to breed stability.  ~Laurel Sherrie~

Owner, Researcher, Registrar
“Here to serve you and your four-legged treasures”
Growing up on a cattle ranch, we raised beef and dairy cattle.  We raised quality ranch horses who would stand behind you through thick in thin.  Our parents taught us to understand conformation and why the conformation should be in a specific way.  We were taught what makes a true dairy animal and how to survive to be self-sufficient.

I’ve always loved human Family History former teaching and Researching Animal Pedigrees. Accuracy is a must!  Sources are a must.  For years, I worked directly with (by asking the hows and whys) with registrars from other registries, to find out how to research for pedigrees and properly enter them into the registry pedigree software.

I love animals and value each and every one of us.

I guess you could say I’m a bit of a rebel.  I’m always one to do the impossible, stand up for the underdog and not necessarily follow convention.  ~Peggy Boone~

Born and raised into a cow/calf beef operation, & brood ­ewe production flock, I have experiences many facets of the ­livestock ­industry. ­In 4-H I learned responsibility and handwork from raising my own show production and market prospects. With the goal of putting female projects back ­into a production setting. I have shown ­livestock ­on a county, district, regional, state and national level.

I was a member of the 4-H organization for 11 years completing projects in the areas of : Market Goats, Breeding Meat Goats, Dairy Goats, Market Swine, Club Lambs, Breeding/Wool Sheep, Communications and Leadership, and Rifle Team. Through my my project/club activities I have taken on several leadership roles including president, reporter, historian, fundraiser chair, and teen leader. After my time as a member I continued to work with the 4-­H organization and Penn State ­Extension ­since I was 18, and ­served as ­a mentor for several younger member just getting there start in the 4-­H livestock clubs. ­

As a member of the Livestock Judging Team at Penn ­State I was able to ­further my experience and develop my selection and evaluation skills by traveling to and competing at Houston ­Stock Show & Rodeo , All-East,Keystone International Livestock Exposition, Boilermaker, Stockton’s, and to the North American ­International Livestock Exposition.

I am currently the A­g Instructor/ FFA Ad­visor at Salisbury Elk-Lick School District. With my administration and I  ­are working on building a program that takes pride in our heritage and strives to innovate ­the future of Agriculture, through courses in Animal Science,Horticulture, and Ag Mechanics.

I enjoy working with youth and teaching ­the importance of good selection of market stock and livestock to be efficient in today’s ­production settings.­ I believe it is also important for terminal animals to produce quality meat on ­the rail for consumer satisfaction. ~Jessie~
