Transfer of Registration:

Between BGA Members - Transfer of Ownership can be completed on the Database by the vendor or the receiving Stud. Members must complete the goats transfer to its new owner within a reasonable time period, this association recommends within 30 days,

From other Database/Association - 

All goats transferred to ‘BGA’ from another Boer Goat Association will be required to be forward to the BGA Secretary on  secretary@boergoataus.com.au a scanned copy of both sides of  their registration certificate.

This is to enable historical uploading of parentage if not already recorded within the Database. This step will simplify registrations of progeny of that animal for the owner & ensure a full parentage is visible on the Certificate & on the Database. A fee may apply for uploading of historical Data. The animal will become Active within your Herd list once upload complete & payment of fee is received.

Kids @ Foot -

A Doe with not yet registered kid/s still at foot (Ie: less than 4mths of age) – the Doe will be required to be transferred into the new owners name, the kid(s) can be registered in the new owners name without the requirement of a transfer. Forms apply  

Pregnant Doe/s - 

 

The Doe will need to be transferred into the new owners Stud. The vendor should provide a form with details of the Sire & Dates during which the Doe was running with the buck. The resulting progeny can be registered by the new owner by "attaching" the breeding evidence form with the registrations.

Please note both the transferrer and transferee must confirm the goats identification details as recorded on the registration certificates.
