We are saddened to report the passing of Don Ella Howard.  Please keep the Howard family in your thoughts and prayers.

Don Ella (Tow) Howard went to the Lord on October 19th, 2017, at the age of 90 at Comanche County General Rehabilitation Center in Lawton, Oklahoma. She was born May 1st, 1927, at Fleetwood, Oklahoma. She was the oldest of nine children born to Floyd and Marie Tow.
Don Ella graduated from high school at Sugden, Oklahoma. She attended college at Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha, Oklahoma. After college, she taught at various schools in Jefferson County. Since she was baptized at the age 12 at Beaver Creek by the Sugden Methodist Church, Don Ella has been an active member and supporter of the Methodist Church everywhere she lived.
Don Ella married Duron H. Howard on September 2nd, 1949, at the Waurika United Methodist Church. They lived on a ranch southeast of Waurika until October of 1954, when they moved to Byars, Oklahoma. They purchased a ranch at Mulhall, Oklahoma, and moved there in the fall of 1958. They lived there until 1992 when they moved back to the Howard Ranch at Waurika.

She participated in Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women and was awarded the President’s gavel for outstanding leadership and service.

Behind the Knit: A Blanket for Scholarship Funds

Behind the Knit: A Blanket for Scholarship Funds

Each year the American Southdown Breeders Association receives a one
of a kind hand knitted Southdown wool blanket that is donated to help
raise funds for their scholarship program. Yet many association members
do not know the story behind these truly unique blankets that have helped
raise thousands of dollars which in return are given directly back to junior
members. Sue Ann Carpenter, from Michigan, is the knitter behind these
beautiful blankets. Wanting to find a way to give back to the Association,
while promoting the versatility of breed, Sue generously donates her time
and talent to construct a blanket each year made out of pure Southdown
wool from her own flock. “Southdown wool is a very viable product that
should not just be thrown away.”
Sue’s involvement in the Southdown breed began in 1989 when her son,
Dan, decided he wanted to show sheep in 4-H. She remembers sitting
down with him going through the breeds listed on the Livestock
Conservancy and discovering the many attributes the Southdown
breed had which they admired. Even though Sue had established a
flock of Karakuls, the original spark for her passion in working with
fiber, the Southdown breed was a good fit for Dan to be able to exhibit
at area shows in Michigan. She quickly realized Southdown wool was
a soft fiber to work with that resisted felting and was ideal for spinning.
Since then, the “Sassy Ewe” spinner has been utilizing the wool from
her Southdown flock of 18 ewes to make yarn which she sells at local
farmers markets in the area.
The design inspiration for the blanket each year is themed around stars
which seem fitting since the NAILE is home to the Stars of Louisville Sale
and the greatest stars of all, the youth who exhibit there. Each blanket
also has the year knitted into the design and is 100% natural, no dyes.
Sue strives to demonstrate the original beauty of Southdown fiber. The
number of hours she spends on a single blanket is hard to comprehend. It
all starts with the shearing of the sheep, skirting the fleece, washing the
wool, picking and carding, roving, and finally spinning the wool fibers into
yarn. On average it takes 2 ½ pounds of yarn to make the blanket. Sue
recommends shearing ewes prior to lambing and leaving one year growth
to have enough staple length, approximately three inches, for the
spinning process.
Many Southdown breeders look at the wool from their sheep as an after
thought and have a “where can I get rid of it” mindset. Sue wants to dispel
the negative connotation people have for Southdown wool by getting
them to use it. She actively promotes using the fiber and encourages
other to pick up the skill of knitting by helping to teach others and attends
fiber events across the Midwest. “Working with wool fiber allows me to
use my creative process and I find it very relaxing.” A word of advice for
those just getting started, do not over think things. “All you want to do is
twist fibers to hold them together. Practice for 20 minutes at a time.” Sue

also encourages those interested in working with fiber to find a local
spinners gild to help get connected with others who can help.
Thank you to Sue for your countless hours of dedication to the
Southdown breed and Association. We are grateful to have members like
you who help to promote all facets the breed has to offer people. This
year’s blanket will be auctioned off during the Southdown Social held on
November 11 th . Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to own a one of a
kind Southdown treasure.

Wisconsin Southdown Stars Sale and Symposium; Starter Ewe Program

The 2017 “Starter Ewe Lambs” will be awarded to several Wisconsin youth at the event. Starter ewe lamb applications are due on March 1st and can be found at the website listed above.

Southdowns have become one of the most popular breeds in Wisconsin for youth sheep projects due to the strong network of breeders and the Southdown’s moderate size, good temperament and that the breed are “slick sheared” by the youth before showing, minimizing the cost and time of fitting.

The Wisconsin Southdown Association (WSA) announces the winners of the $1,000 Jackpot the association offered in conjunction with the Wisconsin Southdown Stars Sale held this spring. Fall and Spring ewe lambs purchased in this sale were eligible for the jackpot when the youth participated in the American Southdown Breeders Association (ASBA) “Pot ‘O Gold” futurity.

A fall ewe purchased by Jaleigh Oldenburg, Mulhall, OK and spring ewe lamb purchased by Hannah Schultz, Fort Atkinson, WI were the highest placing animals in the ASBA Futurity purchased in the Wisconsin Southdown Stars Sale in their respective age groups. Oldenburg was awarded $570 and Schulz $430 in the Wisconsin Jackpot. These awards were in addition to the money awarded to Oldenburg and Schultz by the ASBA.

2016 NAILE

Louisville – North American

We are only a month away from being in Louisville at the North American International Livestock Show.  It is our hope that you will be able to make the events of the big junior weekend and the National Southdown Show.

 

Junior Weekend With All the Trimmings

Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. will be the Southdown Skillathon in room 109C.  This popular event has really grown into a great activity for our youth.  With different age divisions and awards for each division, juniors can sign up at the door and test their skills on Southdown and sheep knowledge.

 

The Stars of Louisville Southdown Sale will be Saturday, November 12th at 12:30 in the room adjacent to the sheep show offices.  We have an outstanding offering of 35 Southdown ewes consigned to the sale.  You will be able to find a list of consignors and their entries online later this month or in the Louisville Preview publication that will be hitting the mail boxes soon.

 

Finally, on Saturday evening at 6: 00 p.m. will be the Southdown social and mixer followed by the 134th Annual Meeting of the Association.  We are set for room 107 at the North American.  Come enjoy a time of snacks and drinks, visiting with friends, and hearing the news of the Association.

 

Sunday morning, bright and early at 8:00 a.m. will be the Southdown junior show.  We have the ring reserved for a great Southdown event that will take all morning and part of the afternoon.  It will be a great junior show and one you will want to see.

 

National Show

The National Southdown Show will be Monday, November 14th, at 8:00 a.m. Entries are still being tabulated, but a great show is anticipated, if past history is any indication.  Billy Wade of Indiana will be the judge, and history is waiting to be made.

Don’t forget, if you have entered the National Show, to send in your matching funds.  At $15 per head and group class the matching funds payment to the Association allows us to boost the premium payout back to the exhibitors as the highest of any breed.

 

Spirit of the Breed

If you have that special person you would like to nominate for the Spirit of the Breed award, do not hesitate to take some time to fill out the application and send it to the Association office.  There will be more information on this wonderful way we say thank you to those that help in so many ways with Southdown activities, in the issue of the Preview that is in the mail, or you can call the office and I will be glad to get an application to you.

 

Futurity Update

We have made several updates on the Pot of Gold Futurity for this year and the latest is up on the website.  We are having record number of point forms turned in and a record number of youth participating.  It is going to be a great finish in Louisville!

2016 Fall E-Letter

Fall Greetings!

With cooler temperatures, we realize the fall of 2016 is upon us.  After a very busy summer for so many, with vacations, county fairs, state fairs, it is time to turn our attention to the fall of 2016.  In the Association office, it means we begin preparing for Louisville or the North American International Livestock Exposition.  National shows, national meetings, and the culmination of the show season are only two months away.

Futurity Points

Futurity points that have been tabulated as of September 1st will be posted this week for the spring ewe lambs, fall ewe lambs, yearling ewes, and market lambs.  This is a “snapshot” of the current point totals and standings as of this date. There are many more point forms to come into the office later this fall, so updates will be posted throughout the fall.  Remember to promptly send those point forms to the office.

Stars Sale

Historically, the last major Southdown sale of the year ends, appropriately, in Louisville.  The Stars Sale, which will be Saturday, November 12th, showcases many of the best ewes of the breed.   It has been a wonderful year for our breed with strong interest in Southdowns from the early sales in April to the present.  If you are interested in consigning to the sale, time is of the essence for your entries to be included in the sale catalog.  Contact the Association office with your questions or consignments as soon as possible.

National Show and Louisville Junior Events

Did I mention that Louisville is on the horizon?  First, do not forget to submit your entries for the junior show and/or the open show, due October 8th.  Those entry deadlines have a way of slipping up on us.  Secondly, please submit your open show matching funds to the Association office, due October 1st.

Louisville Preview

Our editor Lisa Reiff has done a great job of putting together a fall publication for all to enjoy. It leads up to all the festivities at the North American Livestock Exposition.  We call it the Louisville Preview. A number of breeders choose to advertise in the publication, and we mail it to all our membership and hand it out at our booth in Louisville.  If you wish to put an ad in the Preview, contact Lisa at scramli3@hotmail.com .  She will be happy to help you design an ad. Please note that the deadline is September 16th.

Annual Meeting Proxy

With the official notice of the 134th annual meeting of the American Southdown Breeders’ Association in the Louisville Preview, members who have paid their annual dues of $20 since October 1, 2015, are eligible to vote at the meeting or request a proxy to be represented by another member.  Proxies need to be requested in writing and returned to the Association office at least 15 days prior to the annual meeting on November 12th, 2016. Your vote can then be counted and represented through the person at the meeting that you have designated.

Spirit of the Breed

One of the highlights of the annual meeting is the announcement of the “Spirit of the Breed” recipient for the year.  This award honors those that have that special “Southdown Spirit” of helping others in the breed.  Past winners include, Gary Kwisnek, Kim and June Weedy, Mike McElvain, Gale Cole, Trace Repasky, C.J.Robinson, Claudette Choma, Barbara Bishop, and the L.C. Scramlin Family.  If you know of someone who would be such a recipient, give the Association office a call or watch for information in the Preview about how to nominate that individual.

Junior Mentoring Program

Our Junior Ambassadors have initiated a mentoring program that will be introduced at this year’s annual meeting and mixer.  Junior members with limited experience will be paired with older junior members and supervised by an adult member.  If you know of a youth who could benefit from such a mentoring program, let us know.

Junior Production Contest

Southdown juniors who cannot always make all the shows being offered can now participate in a new production contest.  All the rules and specifics are listed on the ASBA website under Southdown juniors. Check it out at:

http://www.southdownsheep.org/juniors_production_contest.php

The participation form and necessary records are on the website under forms.

http://www.southdownsheep.org/pdf/forms/2016/ProductionContest-RecordReport.pdf
