“Purebreds” are miniature dairy goats that are sixth-generation (F6) or higher. A “Purebred” MUST meet ALL standards for its specified breed and must meet the conditions of the 70/30 Rule.
Important Terms to know
Grade Foundation Doe:
A goat from unknown pedigree, or partially unknown. May be a recorded grade or registered Experimental with ADGA, or be an unregistered doe.
MDGA considers offspring of 2 registered parents, in most cases a reg. Nigerian Dwarf & a reg. standard dairy goat (ADGA - American or ADGA/AGS - Purebred) to be a 1st gen Experimental. A 2nd gen Experimental would be the offspring of a registered 1st gen Experimental crossed with a reg. 1st gen or higher Mini of the same breed.
The Experimental, American, Purebred Herdbook WILL NOT be closing. Any Herdbook changes are to the GRADE Herdbook ONLY.
