So you would like to register animals?

Easily Apply.

First though, please read below to ensure you have all the information you need. If you don’t have all the necessary information, your application is not complete until all the information is submitted. Application is complete, then you application will be done in order received.

Several things that are required are:

  • Date of birth (approximate if you don’t know exact date)
  • Color description
  • Permanent Identification affixed to goat and assigned (Should be physically on goat before registration, but at least assigned. Before animal is removed for any reason from your property, the identification must be on the animal by Federal law. (more information below)
  • Number of males and females in animal’s birth (preferred)
  • Breeder name and contact information, herd name
  • Owner’s name and contact information, herd name
  • If you purchased, traded, were given, sold, or any type of ownership change, no exceptions… Transfer form must be filled out. A few work arounds can be Email to IGSCR at, from seller. If you purchased the animal from auction, then auction receipt will work as well. If there is a dispute of ownership, then a legal court ownership document must be sent to IGSCR office. No exceptions.
  • Clear side photo
  • Height at withers if Miniature (Nigerian Dwarf or Pygmy crossed with standard sized breeds), Nigerian Dwarf, Pygmy, San Clemente Island. At age one to obtain idea if the goat will become over height as an adult. Then again at age four.
  • If animal is registered with another registry, then we must have a copy of the registration certificate. We may request a five or six generation official pedigree from the other registry. We would still need copies of transfer forms too if change of ownership has been done.
  • If you have no lineage on your goat, then it will be a Recorded Grade for all breeds except San Clemente Island. San Clemente Island have three other herd books available in these situations. They are Recovery, Wild Herd or Recorded Grade. We would request that we do DNA Breed Analysis testing through our registry lab account. Breed Analysis not required, but strongly recommended.
  • DNA Markers and Parentage are not required, but recommended through our ISGCR lab account, so that parentage is proven. This is your choice.

Example of clear side photo. Note that your camera should be at level of goat, with camera pointed in middle of belly. It doesn’t have to be a show pose. Just a clear image. If you want photo on Registration Certificate, get as nice of photo as possible.
Why photo? It helps us to know if the animal truly is the breed that is being registered.

  • Train you to research your own pedigrees
  • Hire us to research for you. If you need research to obtain needed information to register your herd, we reserve the right to charge research fees, plus any documentation necessary.
