Secondary Identification is NOT required, except in the PSIKeep herd. PSIKeep system has an internal ID number assigned to each goat that the breeder requires to look up information on that animal.
If you choose to use secondard identification, list this as well. This may be useful in identifying the goat.
If an animal has secondary identification only, this animal will NOT be registered until approve Official USDA-approved ID is physically on goat.
If the Official Identification is lost or removed and IDGR is not notified, the registration will be suspended until the situation is rectified.
Remember that the Identification on the goat and the DNA is how we know this is the actual goat we are working with.
