The American Dairy Goat Association maintains a registry of herd names for ADGA members that may be used exclusively by the owner as the first part of the name of any dairy goat of their own breeding. Your herd name should not exceed 15 spaces if possible, as the name of each dairy goat is limited to a total of 30 spaces including the registered herd name. You can readily see that the longer the herd name, the more limited the choice of names for the goat.
There are two options for registering a herd name with ADGA:
- A REGULAR HERD NAME registration for $15.00. The herd name will remain in effect so long as your membership is maintained.
- A PERMANENT HERD NAME registration for $100.00. The herd name will remain in effect permanently.
