Please know that unless you pay for express registrations, all registrations are on a 1st come first served basis, as with any registry.
If you require fast turn around, then the payment for Express Speed registrations needs to be paid. The reason is so that we are not jumping ahead of other member’s registrations.
We at IGSCR offer DNA Marker (individual animal fingerprint) and DNA Parentage testing at a rate of $30/test plus postage of $1.25/test (animal). You do not have to do these tests currently unless we do not know who the parents are. If that is the case, we request that you submit DNA Parentage to test through the registry account. If such tests are done, then the animal will be marked as follows on their registration certificate
Once we get the DNA Parentage test created for Nubians and Nigerian Dwarf (later other breeds), then you may submit any of those breeds for testing. This will bump your 0% Grades up to a higher herdbook. More information on this.
We are super careful to create accurate pedigrees and Registration Certificates. If you aren’t able to obtain the required information required for registration purposes, we will obtain permission from you to do the research for you at a rate of $10/hr plus any purchases necessary. We would have a special contract with you for that purpose. Happy to help out.
When purchasing animals, obtain a Bill of Sale/Transfer from the seller to you. Obtain all of the information you can get such as pedigree, copy of registration certificates of parents, Date of Birth, number of males and females in the birth (this type of information that is available). Note that if you purchase an animal who has been transferred multiple times, without having the transfers done at the registry, all the transfer fees would need to be paid for. This is for filing costs. Thanks for your understanding. (Note: Some special rules apply to San Clemente Island goats)
Thanks for your understanding:
Because we are one of the smaller registries, our IGSCR officers and staff all have outside employment or farms. We strive to be fast and we are here to serve you and your animals. Thanks so much for your understanding.
