Australian Miniature Goat

Welcome to the official website of the Miniature Goat Breeders Association of Australia (MGBA). The Miniature Goat Breeders Association (MGBA) is a longstanding breed Association that is managed and run with the help of many volunteers. A non-profit membership organisation, with members nation wide. The MGBA was established in 2007 by the founder of the Australian Miniature Goat breed along with the help of a handful of foundation breeders after membership grew to the stage it was no longer able to be managed by the founder herself who solely managed her registry and goat group (AMGR established 2000). The Association’s focus is on perfecting and promoting the breeds through maintaining strict breed standards, breed shows and member displays Australia wide.

BIOSECURITY UPDATE JULY 2016: The Biosecurity Act 2014 (the Act) commences on 1 July 2016. The Act requires anyone who keeps a threshold number of designated animals (one or more cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, bison, buffalo, deer or animals from the Camelidae family (e.g. alpacas, llamas) or the Equidae family (e.g. horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, zebras), 100 or more designated birds or one or bee hives) to be registered as a registrable biosecurity entity (RBE) for traceability purposes in case of a disease outbreak or possible contamination.
Previously, registration related to parcels of land. An application for a property identification code (PIC) could be made by either the owner of the land parcel or, where the landowner did not keep stock themselves, by the owner of the stock who wanted to run stock on the land parcel. Under the Act, the obligation to register rests with the person who 'keeps' the stock and generally speaking this will be the owner of the stock. This is because usually the owner of the stock has ultimate control and responsibility for the stock. It is now the entity that 'keeps' the stock that is registered and that entity can have an association with one or more PICs.
Where the RBE is not the owner of the parcel of land associated with the PIC, they may want to arrange an authorisation (from the landholder), to gain access to 'industry systems' e.g Livestock Production Assurance National Vendor Declaration (LPA NVD). The landowner must provide the authorisation in writing. This can be completed by the landowner on the RBE application or attached in writing and lodged with the RBE application For more infrormation please check out the internet.
