The DGSA was formed in 1935 not only as a Registration Body, but also to provide various ways to share knowledge. We remain the premier Registration Body for Dairy Goats with average registrations of over 6,000 per year. As the largest Registration Body for Dairy Goats in Australia, we are not surprisingly the first port of call for most export enquiries. We continue to foster the sharing of knowledge via local goat clubs, Dairy Goat sections at many Agricultural Shows, via our bi-monthly magazine, the Australian Goat World and our various National and State-based social media platforms.
In addition to these information-sharing platforms, we offer official 24 hour and/or lactation recording for our members as well as standardised Classification of members animals. We have also sponsored and/or facilitated original Research into areas of importance to Australian Dairy Goat breeders. We currently recognise 10 breeds of Dairy Goats including the Nigerian Dwarf breed.
The Australian All Breeds of Miniature Goat and Sheep Society Inc. is an association that operates a registry and caters for the needs of breeders and enthusiasts of miniature goats and sheep.
We are a dedicated and friendly bunch of people who are working together to further develop miniature goat and sheep breeding in Australia and are inclusive of all individual goats and sheep and the individual breeding programs of all stud owners.
ADG Inc is a commercially based organisation with stud registration facilities; it has been established to promote the genetic improvement of all dairy goats within Australia. ADG Inc provides stud registrations for all dairy breeds within Australia, and happily recognises, and accepts all dairy goat registrations from any goat organisation.
We are passionate about promoting and improving dairy goats in Australia, and strongly encourage our members to herd record (305 day lactation records), undertake classification, and most importantly DNA parent verification, as the correct genetic information is the cornerstone of any pedigree and breed improvement in the future using genomics.
We provide training days which include Artificial Insemination, Classification, Herd recording and general husbandry. These are open to both members and non members.
ADG Inc supports the Nigerian Dwarf Goat Society of Australia as DNA (Genomics), Classification and Herd recording forms an integral part in growing our industry for the future.
Miniature Goats Australia Association Inc, (MGA) is a small but unique group of breeders and owners of the original Australian Miniature Goat, Pygmy, Nigerian Dwarf, Mini Boer and we are open to accepting other breeds.
Our ultimate focus is on the purity of each breed long term. Our lovely volunteer registrars are always willing to assist members with our self-managed database.
We are resolute in collating all aspects of the animal’s information so as not to downgrade the quality of generational breeding.
We offer the opportunity to show or display your animals and include some Open shows in our calendar for any breeder, in any group, Australia wide to participate in.
