Send Us Your Numbers!!

The KGBA wants information on your meat and milk production, and we’re willing to beg, borrow and offer free memberships to get it! Once we receive and verify your documentation, we will send you a certificate good for one free annual membership to the KGBA. The certificate can be used by you or transferred to the individual of your choice.

What do we want?

We want any info you can give us, but in order to qualify for a free annual membership for 2017, we need the following information from at least three of you registered (or kids out of registered parents) Kinder goats:

1.  Official milk test records from a one day test or a standard whole herd milk test. For more information, contact your local DHI field representative listed online at http://www.quality-certification.com/certifiedfield.asp or contact Sue Beck at sue@jabeck.com.


2.  Detailed records on butchering weights sent in on the form found at http://kindergoatbreeders.com/files/KGBA_Meat_Reporting_Form.pdf  

For more information on butchering and recording weights, please contact Jean Jajan at jeanjajan1@gmail.com.

In order to qualify for the free membership incentive, all forms need to be submitted no later than December 28, 2016.  This information is incredibly valuable and beneficial to the Kinder Goat Breeders Association… thank you for your participation!
