Notice on Savanna Goats accepted for registry

 Savanna Goat


Savanna Savannah goats
A listing of Savanna Breeders that register with us appears below the following comments.  
Simply scroll past our comments if you are in a hurry to find a breeder.
Established in 2000 as the original registry for the Savanna goat in the USA.  Pedigree International remains the largest database in North America for the Savanna goat.

All breeders listed are ACTUALLY current and active breeders in the Savanna industry as of this current year. We do not list inactive, deceased or charter breeders.  If you are shopping for a Savanna goat one of these breeders will be happy to hear from you.

A note from Pedigree International to those interested in the Savanna breed as it is represented here at P.I. :
     Fullblood, Purebred and Percentage goats are represented in the P.I. database.  Status of FB, PB or Percentage is determined by the actual % of Savanna blood 
contributed to the offspring by the Sire and Dam of the animal being submitted for registration and not by any 'judgement call' on behalf of the registrar or any other person.
P.I. does not set a breed standard. We believe two important facts.  
     First, a breed standard has already been set by individuals of high integrity and long standing within the Savanna breed.  Those breed standards can be viewed here:  
     A breed standard is just that,  A STANDARD, set to assist breeders as a benchmark as they proceed in breeding for outstanding offspring. A breed standard is not a list of suggestions that are changed at the whim of any one person to allow more (and often inferior) animals to appear to 'meet the standard'.  A standard is a guideline, a road map, a ever steady beacon, pointing the way to the end goal of superior animals that will preform, in sometimes, adverse conditions.  If it is continually changed the traveler will soon find himself off course and the original goal will never be attained.
     Second, we believe that the market will dictate what it needs.  Inferior animals simply do not preform well over the long haul. Strength of foundation in the herd and the integrity of the herdsman will, in the end, lead one to the desired end.
     There has also been the issue of Savannas of COLOR that is cropping up.  YES, we are seeing Fullblood Savannas producing offspring with red heads and other markings that some find less then desirable. It is the 'opinion' of this writer that just as paints and solid reds began to show up in the Boer breed (because it was IN their DNA and a genetic fact) that there is 'color' within the gene pool of the Savanna.  Color shows up in the Savannas even in South Africa.  Some think it is the dishonest breeder adding Boer blood to their herds that is putting the color on the ground.  Although this can be the cause in some cases, this writer does not think that every case of COLOR in a Savanna is achieved by dishonest, or slothful herd management, it simply HAPPENS ... naturally.
The question has come up as to weather Savannas with color should be disallowed or 'demoted' in status within the Savanna herdbook due to the appearance of color. P.I. does not think Savannas of color should be discriminated against.  A) A Savanna is a fullblood or a percentage based on parentage and NOT on color or breed standard. B) If you are a breeder that wants to eliminate the 'color gene' from your herd, and perhaps the entire Savanna population, then you best KNOW where it is. The best way to know where the color is coming from it to track it through pedigree representation.
Lastly, DNA. Some are being told that DNA can tell if a Savanna is PURE or NOT.  DNA can ONLY verify parentage.  It can tell if buck A or buck B is the sire of a specific kid.  DNA CAN NOT TELL YOU IF THERE IS BOER, SPANISH, KIKO or any other bred in the DNA of your 'supposed' Savanna goat.  DNA is a tool, it is NOT the be all and end all.  It can not make a dishonest breeder honest.  THINK ABOUT it, a liar and a cheat will always find a way to cheat, it is not difficult to figure out how to 'out smart' a buyer using a DNA report.  P.I. does not require DNA testing or archiving because we know the limits of doing such.  We do provide the opportunity and ability of our clients to achieve DNA testing or archiving if they so choose. Be careful you are not lulled into a false sense of security just because someone says DNA. 
Our purpose at P.I. is to assist the breeder.  When a client purchases a goat that is registered within another database and asks us to enter that animal into the P.I. database (dual registering it)  we do so knowing full well that regardless of the heroics any registrar offers to maintain a true and accurate database that accidents, errors and fraud happen.   Here at P.I. we make every effort to assure the information we receive and enter is accurate and true.  In the end it is the quality of the animal that matters most. As a buyer, look over the animal you are considering purchasing.  Evaluate each animal against a strong breed standard. Be sure that you like what you see.  THEN take a look at the 'paperwork'. Most of all, be sure you are buying from a breeder of integrity.
Registration papers assist a breeder in developing a strong breeding program.  They can help the breeder and the industry to achieve various goals. They are a worthwhile tool.  Use them as such.
