IDGR Beginings

  • Established in 1980 in Dublin, Texas.   Moved in 1986 where it remained for roughly 14 years

  • Founded by Bruce Hair, who was a long-time goat breeder

  • Founded as an option for registrations that were built upon the actual core qualities of the animal, rather than the show scene

  • IDGR worked hard to discover more accurate information on breeding and performance of the goats

  • Developed a unique milk testing program that is very unique and truly lets  us know if our goat is a true dairy goat

  • Many writings by Robert Johnson, which are treasured by many, as true information which brings out the worth of our goats

Breeds & Species Pioneered by IDGR

IDGR was the founding registry for:

  • Heritage (direct import and its descendants) of Nigerian Dwarf (working directly with founding breeders in the USA, Canada and Britain).  Also working directly with Dr Sponenberg on the Robert Johnson Farm of Pine Cone Valley

  • San Clemente Island goats (Founding Registry, chosen by the Founding breeders and the original association for the SanC Clemente Island goats; San Clemente Island Goat Club). Worked directly with Dr Sponenberg at the Pine Cone Valley farm
