We would like to offer clarification of some information in our August Newsletter regarding percentage animals in ABGA.
According to Rules 200-206, the American Boer Goat Herd Book is comprised of 3 herd books: Fullblood, American Purebred, and American Percentage.
Fullbood Boer Goats: 100%
American Purebred Boer Goats: are less than 100%; females are accepted down to 93.75% and males down to 96.875% Boer.
American Percentage Boer Goats: females are accepted from 25% to less than 93.75% and males from 50% to less than 96.875% Boer.
For more information about ABGA herd books and percentage animals, you can view page 5 of the ABGA Rules and Regulations.
To determine the percentage of an animal, combine the percentage of the sire and the percentage of the dam, and divide by 2. (% of Sire + % of Dam) ÷ 2 = % of Animal
