I'm rapidly arriving at the conclusion...

Nothing.

What I'm asking is why renew again? Why use the registry? You cannot make them change. New programming would cost them thousands. Their obligation or not, they obviously aren't doing it.

That said -- you don't like them, don't use them. Get papers paid for or demand a refund. Then stop with them.

I didn't say anything about renewing. I'm not even close to that time yet. And I already paid the registry fees. That's the whole point.

That sucks. I’m sorry that you are having such a hard time getting the papers. I hope you can get them soon.

Hmm, have you tried registering your goats thru the AGS instead? Or am I getting the two confused?
Not yet, though I might go that route if it ends up being my only option. My interest is in raising and breeding for milk production, so registration with a dairy-orientrd registry is preferred. But...we'll see.

Hi, I've posted a link to your post on the ADGA district III fb page. It's past time for them to take care of you, however it's national show time, so all the directors are probably up to their ears in other responsibilities so it may be hard to find someone to help you for the next couple of weeks.

The ADGA office has started taking calls during limited business hours. There is usually a hold time so you may want to call, plug in your phone and put it on speaker, and pull out a book or do something else(dishes, all the milking, laundry)...if you can find a time to actually put in a call when you're not working. You can also put in a ticket and hope they get back to you over email.

ADGA is in a frustrating mess right now. Things have gotten better recently, but it's been a long, stupid 3 years so "better" is not anywhere near good enough.

Good luck. If you want to message me I may be able to help a little bit, but I'm also waiting on a registration right now and it's going no where fast.

I just thought I'd post an update to say that as of 2 days ago, after 4 months, my goats have finally all been registered and/or transferred to my ownership by the ADGA. It required multiple contacts and a silly exercise in me having to recieve and mail back in paperwork transfering them to myself (it turns out that they assigned 2 of the girls to accounts that they generated and assigned my name to that weren't actually my accounts...for some bizarre reason). But, better late than never, I suppose.

Virginia is for Pasture Farmers!
You should see the fiasco in the Babydoll sheep world!
Not only are there four registries, each one has internal drama for specific people and sheep color.
Wtf.
One registry is usually a 2 month wait, with some people waiting several months and a few others having waited years! Those will most likely never see their paperwork and have moved onto other registries because of it.
And now they're closing access to sheep from other registries, so you're either buying from them only or screwed if you happen to buy from the wrong one.
The paperwork doesn't belong to the sheep, it belongs to the person who properly registered it or properly transferred it. So, sheep can suddenly become "not registered" even though they actually are.
The dumbfckery is rampant! The confusion is nonstop.
