International Goat, Sheep, Camelid Registry

We at International Goat, Sheep, Camelid Registry have set up a GoFundMe project to aid upgrade of the registry.  It will aid in:

  • Shipping to bring our registry records to our new registry home
  • DNA Parentage, Markers, Genetic Defects and Alpha Casein DNA testing (all breeds)
  • DNA Research and to help pay our Registry Admins/Assistants
  • Software upgrade and Online Searchable Database hosting
  • Creation and upgrade to our Show and Linear Appraisal (conformation evaluation) programs and training our experts

This is much needed help. Thanks so much to you all! And great thanks to those who have already contributed.  ~Peggy

 

Parentage Testing For San Clemente Island Goats

We at International Goat, Sheep Camelid Registry are working closely with Eri, Jerry and other groups to help move this great pedigree/research work ahead.  We all spend countless hours on this. Thanks Erin, Jerry, Laurel and all who are working so hard on this. We at IGSCR created a regisry UC Davis Account which is were Erin and Jerry will be testing. We invite you all, as well to use our registry account. Besides the $10 discount in price on tests there are other perks too to using our registry account.

Thanks so much Erin for creating this GoFundme

Howdy folks! I am working in conjunction with another San Clemente Island Goat breeder to figure out some lineage with these goats. SCIG’s are critically endangered with only about 700 left.

Records have not been kept in the past by many breeders and to keep this breed going strong we need to figure out parentage. That means collecting hair samples and sending them in for DNA testing which costs $30 per animal. Between myself and another larger breeder there could be up to 100 or more goats that should get tested and put into that data base.

This is another big ask, but I plan on paying for these tests on my own as much as I can. This fund is more to help the other breeder Jerry with his herd. I know other people will be in the same boat that raise these goats that have limited lineage information.
