Spanish Goat Conservation Society does not require breeder members to DNA register their Spanish goats. The DNA Registry is being offered to our breeder members in order to support the SGCS Mission of safeguarding the treasured
genetics of Spanish goats. DNA Registration is offered to those Spanish goats that can be traced to foundation herds.
In addition to the SGCS DNA Registry, a private Spanish genetic marker study is being done in cooperation with the UC Davis Veterinary Laboratory. We are still awaiting those results.
SGCS Registrar will contact you when your application is received.
