Four Important Facts About Our Association That You Should Know
1. USBGA is leading the industry with a new and innovative program that will change the way America
recognizes the South African Boer Goat. This program will allow all American bred Boers to be certified
and recognized as the finest Boer Goats in the world!
After five generations of breeding a full South African buck to any fullblood doe, the fifth generation
offspring will be designated as "American Bred South African." Each one of these fifth generation
animals will carry the distinction of ASASM behind their registration number. These American Bred
South Africans will be registered in the USBGA with the"ASASM Breeder's Choice Registry" designation.
Subsequent offspring from ASASM animals will also have the ASASM designation.
2. It is easy to become a member and receive the benefits of the new USBGA. You simply join the
association and register your new kids with USBGA. When submitting registration applications for your
new kids please send a COPY of the sire and dam pedigrees. The pedigrees of the sire and dam will be
entered into the USBGA registry database free of charge. The standard registration fees of $16 for
fullblood/purebred and $8 for percentage will apply only to the kids and not their parents.
3. USBGA is the only registry that offers the "Show Anywhere" policy.
What this means for you is that your goats can be shown at any Boer Goat Association show under any
licensed judge. Regardless of the show, you will receive a maximum of one credits for your win on your
pedigrees in the USBGA.
