About The Club

The PGC was formed in 1982 to protect the interests and improve the status of pygmy goats in Great Britain. Membership offers the opportunity to:
  • Obtain and exchange information via the quarterly magazine “PYGMY GOAT NOTES", the PGC website and social media forums. 
  • Register herd names; enter Pygmy Goats in the PGC Pet Record; enter qualifying goats in the PGC Herd Book.
  • Attend PGC meetings and exhibit at shows.
  • Have a voice in the affairs of the PGC and take an active part in protecting and promoting Pygmy Goats in the United Kingdom

 

PGC Code of Conduct

As a member of the Pygmy Goat Club, I agree:
  • To abide by the rules of the Club.
  • To consider the welfare of my goats and the best interests of the breed above any personal gain or profit.
  • To be honest in advertising and record-keeping/registration of stock.
  • To familiarize myself with the Pygmy Goat Breed Standard and to use it as a guide in breeding and evaluating pygmy goats.

If you would like to see your goat pictures on the Pygmy Goat Club website you can sent them to Clare. We need portrait images for the home page and either portrait or landscape for the Goat Gallery. If you have emailed images and they are not added and you get no email response from Clare - please resend your images, a single image per email as sometimes large emails can block inboxes.
