Why Join the Dual Purpose Goat Project?
Our members receive discounted rates on recording their goats and special member only access to programs, training and documents that make data tracking easy. The Dual Purpose Goat Project has a seperate Facebook group for members where you can openly discuss issues and ask for advice from other like-minded breeders. It's like having a Goat Mentor in your back pocket. Members also receive a free breeder listing on the website and the ability to participate in the award programs that have been designed to bring out the best in your goats.
If you have a goat that has not been registered with another organization you have the ability to register him or her with us to start tracking a pedigree history. If a parent or both parents are registered with another organization, we can add that pedigree data to your goats record. It is not required to have registered parents to register the animal with us.
If your goat is already registered with another organization that's okay too! You can just send us a copy of the pedigree and we can add that information to their DPGP record when you record them with us.
