The following letters are recommended by the KGBA to designate the year of birth. Each animal should have a unique tattoo. Next to the letter is the number assigned to each goat based on its birth order that year. For example, the first kid born in 2010 was A01, or A1, the second kid was A02 or A2 and so on. This number/letter combination is placed in the left year, and the breeder’s designated letters in the right.Tattoo letters:
G, I, O, Q and U are not used.
