GHIP-AGF [GOAT HERD IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM] FREE TO AGF MEMBERS
Excel-based Record Keeping, Production, Information & Performance Program that Meets Scrapie ID and Recordkeeping Requirements
and gives the Producer useful Management Tools

The original GHIP program has been in use for several years. It was developed by Dr. Ken Andries, past President of AGF and member of the AGF Advisory Council. Dr. Andries is Assistant Professor at the School of Agriculture at Kentucky State University. The GHIP-AGF program has been modified and enhanced by AGF and Dr. Andries for easier input of data and use by producers, and items were added to meet the requirements for records for the Mandatory Scrapie Eradication Program. This program is free to all AGF Individual and Affiliate Members and will be personalized to each producer for ease of use. The program will be made available on paper also, if requested.
The central part of the program is the Herd Data sheet where information is entered.

~~~~~

~~~~~



Producers have the option of keeping the data, or of recording data and sending it in to be evaluated by Dr. Andries, who will perform adjustments and return summary sheets to the producer. All files sent in to be summarized go directly to Dr. Andries and the information is not shared with anyone else, besides the producer. Those Summary Sheets will include:

  • Birth and weaning weight adjusted for type of birth/rearing, sec, and age of dam
  • Weaning weight adjusted to a 90 day standard
  • Birth and weaning weight performance ratio
  • Dam summary showing number of kids born/weaned, and total actual and adjusted birth and weaning weight for each doe.
  • If sire ID has been provided, a sire summary with average actual and adjusted birth and weaning weights for each sire used and number of kids he sired at birth and weaning.

Over time information on overall averages and ranges will be provided to help the producer evaluate their herd.
