Master Breeder

The Judging Board of the IFGA instituted, at their annual meeting in November 2004, a "Master Breeder" designation for those people who have shown through winning on a consistent basis over several years and contributed to the IFGA and to the hobby by serving unselfishly. This achievement is difficult to attain and should be held in the highest regard.

If you would like to apply for Master Breeder status please see the section below on criteria to become a master breeder. 

Master Breeder List

The following people have met the criteria for obtaining their Master Breeder title with the IFGA.

Individuals seeking recognition as a “master breeder” must apply to the Judging Board, listing his/her qualifications and secure board approval.  An applicant must have at least 15 points, as well as the minimum points in the above categories.  No substitutions will be allowed.  The Judging Board will maintain the list of all current master breeders and once awarded, the designation is permanent.
