From the desk of the ACA President Hello Corriedale Breeders! I can only hope that many of you are on the downward side of lambing and the season has been productive. I am always excited to see if the breeding decisions made months ago are meeting or exceeding expectations. Here in the Midwest we are coming off of an extremely mild winter and, thanks to the Punxsutawney Phil and an early Easter, spring will be here before we know it. I first would like to congratulate all of the Junior and Open exhibitors at the North American International Livestock Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. I was extremely impressed with the numbers and quality of animals exhibited. I am extremely excited for 2016 as this will be the first year that my oldest son will participate in the National Ryan Craig Corriedale Junior Show in Sedalia, Mo. For me this will be what raising President Corriedales is all about. Working with him in the barn this winter will be ACA the memories that I will treasure forever. The spring sale schedule will be here before we know it and don’t forget to get your futurity ewe lambs picked out. With that said I would also like to congratulate the Peter’s family for placing first and second in the futurity points show for 2015. Ellen received first with her Lightning Ridge Farm January ewe lamb and Collin finished right behind her in second with his Craig Sheep Farm February ewe lamb. I look forward to seeing everyone this year! Here are a couple of events to mark on your calendar: Big Ohio Sale Entry Deadline – March 10th Big Ohio Sale Show – May 12th Big Ohio Sale – May 13th All American Jr. Show in memory of Ruth Hartman– July 1-3 National Corriedale Show & Sale Entry Deadline- May 1st Midwest Stud Ram Sale National Corriedale Jr. Show – June 20th Midwest Stud Ram Sale National Corriedale Open Show – June 21st Midwest Stud Ram Sale National Corriedale Sale– June 23rd

Past Presidents, State & Area Director’s Meeting

May 8, 2015- 3:00 p.m. Preble County Fairgrounds, Eaton, Ohio President Nicholas Miniter called the meeting to order. Secretary’s Report The minutes from the 2014 Past Presidents, State and Area Director’s meeting were approved as listed in the 2014 spring issue of the Extra. The financial report was accepted as presented. 2015 National in North Dakota The 2015 National Show will be July 1720, 2015 in Minot, North Dakota at the state fairgrounds and is to be judged by Jim Kin. There will be a junior show judged by Justin Benz as well as an open show which is in conjunction with the North Dakota State Fair. Joana Friesz has done extensive work to put this show together.

Corriedale Extra

be presented to Midwest Sale Committee. Jenny Milligan Bradley was approved as the junior judge. 2015 National Show and Sale Ewe/Ram Ratio There was some discussion regarding the ewe/ram ratio at the Ohio Classic Show and Sale which is where we had our 2015 National. The current rule for participation reads: you must sell two ewes for each ram that you want to sell. The consensus was that we need to let the Ohio Sale Committee know we are not in agreement with this stipulation for our National event. We will be in touch with the Ohio Sale Committee regarding this issue. Corriedales There was lengthy discussion on the declining number of Corriedales in the U.S. They are disease resistant and take less maintenance than other breeds. Wool breeds do take more talent in regards to trimming, which is an art. Different ways to help new breeders were discussed such as doing a natural class which would require no trimming. Slick sheared classes for a ram and ewe were discussed but we are a dual purpose breed so wool is a definite factor in quality. A fitting workshop was discussed for a future event. This would be beneficial to many new breeders as well as our youth. Corriedales must remain sound and productive. They are not just a show animal! The registration paper is not what makes a purebred animal good – it is what this animal can produce and how well it thrives under various conditions. It was suggested we post lamb pictures on our Facebook page. Corriedales need to promote their strengths to try and draw more breeders into our Corriedale family. Currently 30% of or registrations are being done by just a few full-time breeders. We encourage breeders to share their thoughts on this issue as we move into our future. Please send comments either in writing to the ACA, PO Box 391, Clay City, IL 62824 or email thoughts and creative ideas to Spring 2016

Executive Board Director Elected Gary Heibertshausen, Mont. was elected to a three-year term on the Executive Board.

In Memoriam Ruth A. Hartman   Ruth A. Hartman, 89, of Limekiln, Penn. passed away Nov. 9, 2015 in the Reading Hospital and Medical Center. She was the widow of William D.L. Hartman who passed away Jan. 25, 2015. Born in Leesport, she was a daughter of the late John F. and Annie (Kissling) Kramer. Ruth was a graduate of Reading High School and attended East Stroudsburg State Teachers College.   She was a pioneer for women’s athletics and was a Physical Education and Health Teacher for the Reading School District for 36 years. Ruth was one of the original members of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, along with other young women, that played professional baseball during World War II. She was known as Ruth “Rocky” Kramer and played for the Fort Wayne Daisies (IN) and the Racine Belles (WI) during the summers of 1946 and 1947. The league was the inspiration for the hit movie “A League of Their Own.” She is a member of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., and had a season ticket for a seat next to the Fightin Phils dugout in First Energy Stadium. The Fightin Phils franchise dubbed her the first-ever “Queen of Baseballtown” in 2008. Ruth began teaching physical education and coaching volleyball, track and swimming in the Reading School District in the 1950s. In 1976 she founded the Reading High School softball program. In 18 seasons at the helm of the Red Knights her teams went 217-7. Spring 2016

Ruth’s love of baseball carried into the American Junior Corriedale Association where every year she played baseball with our juniors during our annual event. She had such a positive impact on both her student athletes and those she met in the Corriedale business, always teaching them all kinds of new things about how to get animals ready, how to present them better, and how to exhibit them. Ruth was also known as a perennial champion breeder of Corriedale Sheep. She was a founding member of the Pennsylvania Corriedale Association in 1995 along with Geoff Ruppert, Ben Bow, Dawn Knepp and Roger Bowman. She was a great supporter of 4-H and encouraged many youth both locally and nationally, many of which are still in the Corriedale business today with fond memories of Ruth. In 2006 Ruth received the Outstanding Corriedale Breeder of the Year and had the National Champion Ram at the North American International Livestock Expo. In 2013 at the age of 86 Ruth received 20 awards at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Ruth is survived by a daughter, Karen A. (David) Kase of Exeter Township; a granddaughter, Kelly A. (Seth) Beaver of Elverson; a brother, Gary J. Kramer (G. Ray Zerbe) of Maidencreek and a nephew, John C. Kramer of Charleston, SC. The American Corriedale Association extends it’s deepest sympathies to the Hartman family. The All-American Corriedale Junior show will be in memory of Ruth Hartman as she touched the lives of many young Corriedale exhibitors throughout the US, always advising them to help make them successful!
