Breeder memberships are for those that would like to record their stock within the herd book, database. There are yearly learning opportunities from the Meat Goat Society. The Meat Goat Society will offer a bi-annual publication to members, classified ads on the website, and other marketing and promotional opportunities, with a newsletter to keep members up to date. We encourage breeders to hold events and invite judges to evaluate stock and record their results in the database. This is about breeders working together and helping one another be better at what they like to do, in the production aspects of raising meat goats, in all breeds. If you would like to be involved, please let us know. We want you to be involved. This is a member based entity.
If a breeder would like to participate in the ‘Stud” book, they may have their stock evaluated to advance. Evaluations are done by inviting another breeder, who is a judge or inspector, for the Meat Goat Society. If a Breeder member would like to advance their stock to the Meat Goat Society ‘Stud’ Book and acquire a certificate of ‘Stud’ and tag, from the Meat Goat Society, the animal must be inspected by two judges to enter the Herd Book number.
Qualifying for ‘Stud’. Breeders stock must be inspected by at least two certified Meat Goat Society judges or inspectors. If stock qualifies as ‘Stud’ or ‘Flock’, it shall be noted on the certificate of registration to the Meat Goat Society and in the database. Cull stock is not recorded. The inspection of stock is to evaluate quality based upon the standard. This will help breeders improve their herd. This does not mean a breeder has to disperse or cull any stock. The evaluation is purely to keep the stock in the standard and imporve them by recording quality.
