AWARDS

The Oberhasli Goat Club offers its members the opportunity to recognize their outstanding Oberhasli through the Award of Merit Program.  At the current time, there are five categories, but this can be expanded in the future. The requirements for each category are listed. For any award, the member submitting must be current with their dues.

Award of Merit - Type Nomination Application

Award of Merit - Type (this will work just like the All American Awards that other clubs offer). To qualify, the owner must submit an application with photos and the entries will be judged by a panel of ADGA and/or AGS licensed judges.  Each year, there will be three Awards of Merit-Type awarded; Doeling (for dry kids under two years); Milkers; and Bucks.  If an animal receives an Award of Merit - Type as a kid, and then again later as a Milker, or is awarded more than one year, only one award will be considered for the Supreme Award of Merit.

Award of Merit - Production (DHI) American; Purebred; or Recorded Grade (50% Oberhasli) are eligible. To qualify, the doe must be on an ADGA recognized Milk Test, or receive an Advanced Registry Milk Star through a One Day Milk Test. Does who completed lactation in 2013- 2014 and receive a doe page or other verifiable proof of having completing the requirements for an Advanced Registry Milk Star during the 2013 – 2014 period will be awarded an Award of Merit – Production.  Animals must be owned by a OGC member, and dues must be current. Submit a copy of the animal’s doe page (milk record) along with a copy of the registration papers to: OGC, Award of Merit Program / P. O. Box 898 / Green Cove Springs, FL 32043.

Award of Merit - Linear (based on LA scores). Only adult American; Purebred; or Recorded Grade (50% Oberhasli) are eligible. To qualify, the animal must receive a Linear Appraisal score of 90 or above during the 2014 appraisal cycle.  A copy of the Linear Appraisal score sheet must be postmarked by January 31, 2015.  Animals must be owned by an OGC member, and dues must be current. Send copy of Linear Appraisal score sheet (please block out scores of non-qualifying animals) and copy of registration papers to:  OGC, Award of Merit Program / P. O. Box 898 / Green Cove Springs, FL 32043.

Award of Merit - Performance (award of Championship - ADGA or AGS) American; Purebred; or Recorded Grade (50% Oberhasli) are eligible.  To qualify, the animal must receive a Permanent Champion Certificate Notification Letter issued by ADGA (or AGS) during the current year.  Animals must be owned by an OGC member, and dues must be current.  Send a copy of the award letter along with a  copy of the registration papers to:  OGC, Award of Merit Program / P. O. Box 898 / Green Cove Springs, FL 32043.

Award of Merit – Working (this program is under construction)

Supreme Award of Merit - An animal earning any three different Awards of Merit in their lifetime will be recognized with a Supreme Award of Merit. The animal does not have to be owned by the same owner, but at the time the animal is eligible for the Supreme Award of Merit, it must be owned by a OGC member whose dues are current.

Recipients of Awards of Merit will receive a framed certificate; publication in the “Oberheard” (OGC Newsletter); and publication on the Oberhasli Club Website. The OGC will request a photo of the animal receiving the award, and a brief news clip for publication. Publicity material will be the property of the OGC and may appear in the United Caprine News; the Dairy Goat Journal; or other national publication.

Recipients of the Supreme Award of Merit will receive a framed certificate; a plaque; and a gift certificate (value of at least $100); publication in the “Oberheard” (OGC Newsletter); and publication on the Oberhasli Club Website. The OGC will request a photo of the animal receiving the award, and an interview with the breeder and or owner. Publicity material will be the property of the OGC and may appear in the United Caprine News; the Dairy Goat Journal; or other national publication.
