Welcome to the official website of the American Goat Society!
The American Goat Society, Inc. was founded in 1935. In 1937, AGS merged with the International Dairy Goat Record Association, which had been established in 1925: so some of the pedigree records of AGS go back more than 80 years.
The American Goat Society has a long history of pioneering. It was the first organization to register purebred goats exclusively. It was first to supply two generations of pedigrees on the registration certificate. AGS brought the first national dairy goat show. It was first to provide training for goat judges. It was first to offer classification of dairy goats. Today, AGS continues to seek new ways to serve dairy goat enthusiasts.
AGS welcomes new members with open arms and we do accept for re-registration purebred animals based on their ADGA or CGS registrations. We welcome ADGA and CGS animals, both purebred and Americans, into our AGS sanctioned shows including the AGS National Show. We are proud of the fact that AGS offers some of the most reasonable rates to be found in any animal registry. We recognize that this society belongs to our members and both the board and the office staff work hard to provide our members with the respect and service they deserve.
