CGA Registry

Welcome to the Cashmere Goat Association Database and Cashmere Goat Registry!

The Cashmere Goat Association ( Database and Registry was developed to serve as a repository for information on goats who meet the qualifications for cashmere goats specified in the North American Cashmere Goat standard. The CGA hopes that the database will:

  • Serve as a resource for cashmere goat breeders seeking high quality stock
  • Promote continuous improvement in the quality of cashmere goats in North America by recognizing goats meeting the standards
  • Serve as a resource for research into breeding approaches and correlations among goat characteristics

This is an open registry.   Each animal must qualify on its own merits, not on those of its parents. The database will also contain basic information on goats that appear in the pedigrees of registered goats, even if they are not registered.   Goats that are on the database as "pedigree only" entries will not appear in the List of Registered Goats, but they can be located through the Search by Herd Code and Name.

The CGA Database and Registry is available to all for online searches for cashmere farms, specific cashmere goats, for cashmere goats in a specific line, and for cashmere goats having user-specified characteristics.

Functions for registering goats and maintaining evaluation data are available to farmers who have defined farms (with herd codes) in the database.   Individuals wishing to obtain a herd code or to update information on a farm can contact Pam Haendle at
