IMZA is Proud to be Home of the
Oldest and Largest Registry of Miniature Zebu Cattle
Founded on 10 April 1991 in Macon Missouri, the IMZA is the oldest registry of miniature zebu in the world. Our purpose is to collect, record, and preserve the pedigrees of all miniature zebu cattle. Additionally, we support our members through education and promotion of the breed, maintenance of a breed registry, and the regulation of all matters that pertain to the history, breeding, exhibition, or improvement of the Miniature Zebu breed.
