MDGA Registration

Registration Guidelines 


The Miniature Dairy Goat Association registers animals that are the offspring of a registered standard dairy goat and a purebred, registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goat. The parents of the animal for which registration application is being made must be registered as “American” or “Purebred” with one or more of the following associations: TMGR, ADGA, AGS, BGS, NDGA, and CGS. MDGA does NOT accept ADGA Stamped Registration Receipts as proper documentation, only official Certificates of Registration are acceptable.

Acceptable parent breeds for miniature dairy goats include: Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen, Sable, Toggenburg, Guernsey, and Nigerian Dwarf. Breeds that are NOT acceptable include: Pygmy, Boer, Angora, or any other non-dairy goat breed.

As the generations from the original crossbreeding advance, MDGA uses different categories for registrations, called “herdbooks.” MDGA has four herdbooks: – “Experimental,” “American,” “Purebred” and “Grade.”

If there is any question about a kid(s) sire, i.e. more than one buck in a doe pen, All kids will be required to have a DNA test completed as well as at least one of the bucks (if there are only 2 bucks in question) will need to be tested in order to register the kid(s).

Registered names are allowed 35 letters and spaces total including the herdname.

All applications must have pictures that have been taken within 90 days of the application being submitted.
