Australian Miniature Goat

about mini goats
The Australian Miniature Goat is an Australian breed that is a genetically small animal that has been developed by pairing carefully selected smaller stature animals of excellent type with small Australian bush goats to ensure hardiness of animals. They are a "Designer Breed" with impeccable temperaments that come in all colours and combinations. Although Australian Miniature Goats are not scaled down versions of their larger counterparts, their conformation is similar to that of the larger breeds, with all parts of the body in balanced proportion relative to their size.
While the breed is still under development, with breeders continuing to work on both refinement of type and reduction of height an MGBA registered Australian Miniature Goat has a maximum height allowance of 63.5cm with the majority of animals currently in Australia averaging 52cm to 60cm

important MGBA updates

MGBA qualified Measurers- The distance between members is recognized as barrier to accessibility to competent MGBA measurers and many veterinarians are not trained in MGBA measurement practices. The number of Foundation Members compared to the large number of members Australia wide has also been identified as an issue and it should also be noted that there are few members who have been involved for 5yrs or more. The MGBA is exploring the implementation of a measurement training course for MGBA members to become competent and confident in taking accurate animal measurements. To ensure the accuracy of measurements being taken spot checks could be requested to expose measurement discrepancies and the requirement for further assistance / training to increase competency.

Watch this space for further developments!
