All registries have their own codes for registrations.  We will talk to you here about IGSCR-IDGR registration number codes.

Wondering about the Registration Number codes?

To understand, first, let me give you the breed codes.

So how do these breed codes enter into registration numbers?

If the animal is a purebred, the breed code will go in front of the goat’s individual registration number.  Example MN-12345 or ND-12346

To become a purebred of a Miniature goat (standard breed crossed with a Nigerian Dwarf) must be at least Generation (F) 6 and meet breed standards. If they don’t meet standards then they will have the breed code at the end of their registration number, followed by an H.  Example E-12345MNH Then they will have to be bred back up again to meet standards.

Breed Percentages

As with any registry I know, if a goat is a crossbred, a simple average is used to decide how much of what breed an animal is.
