Expanding Junior Southdown Opportunities

KMW_1577The American Southdown Breeders’ Association recognizes the role Southdowns play in not only the sheep industry but also in the lives of families and youth. Many families choose to incorporate showing Southdowns into their vacations and recreation. Whether it is the slick shearing, the size and disposition, or any other qualities of the Southdown, we are grateful to families for their choice. The Pot ‘O Gold Futurity has grown to include fall ewe lambs, yearling ewes, and market lambs. Other sheep breeds have viewed the futurity’s success and have incorporated it into their programs. Our association desires to continue expanding Southdown opportunities to our juniors.

As a result, the ASBA will be creating a junior coordinator position to assist with this goal. We plan to launch the position beginning in 2019. Any ideas for events, activities, programs, trainings, or demonstrations the membership would like to suggest are welcomed. Feel free to make your suggestions known by contacting the ASBA Office in the next couple of weeks.

Let us hear from you.
