President’’s Message In the past two Journals I wrote about the use of DNA testing for risk management of genetic defects and the role of the membership in conducting the business of the association throughout the year and at the annual meeting. It is time to turn attention to the ASBA role that more directly involves junior members. Let’s look at just one weekend. Over 100 youth exhibited almost 300 Southdowns in the junior breeding show at the North American last fall, a memorable event that sometimes overshadows the other ways that the ASBA and member breeders work to broaden the opportunities at the NAILE for youth interested in Southdowns. This year the Ewes for Youth program, initiated in 2003, awarded ewes to juniors from Ohio, Texas and Maryland. College students from Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana were presented scholarships at the ASBA annual meeting and banquet, the seventh year for this program. Thanks to extensive breeder support through nomination fees, the Pot of Gold Futurity started over 20 years ago, paid out a new record of more than $7,000 this year to 46 juniors from 13 states after the final point show at Louisville. Southdown breeders provided sheep that were used in the collegiate and national 4-H judging contests held during the NAILE. Several youths purchased their first registered Southdown ewes from the 2013 Stars Sale which had a record number of futurity nominations from consignors. More details on donors and winners from these events at Louisville can be viewed on the ASBA website. And there was yet another youth event packed into that weekend that is off to a promising start. The “Southdown Skillathon” initiated this year at NAILE provides an even more encompassing and interactive experience for junior exhibitors. Skillathons are more than a test. They are learning stations where youth can both gain knowledge and demonstrate their current knowledge and skills through “hands-on” activities. Megan Nielson designed the stations that were used this year with these brief descriptions: 1) Selection-Use information on Southdown registration papers and DNA results in ram selection scenarios. 2) Meats-Identify actual retail cuts, measure fat thickness and loin eye, and grading specifications. 3) Lambing-Explain and demonstrate steps in processing a newborn lamb, tube feeding and tail docking. 4) Health-Identify types of needles and injections and classify diseases. 5) Tie Breaker-Southdowns around the world. Each station had problems designed for three age levels to accommodate all junior Southdown contestants. Additional facilitators at the stations were Jackie Scramlin, Lisa Scramlin, Grant Reiff, Karen Jennings, and Jessy Shanks. The results were announced at the opening of the Stars Sale with rosettes provided by the Scramlin Family to the top five in each age division, second place awards donated by MB Genetics, and a Southdown engraved wooden desk box from the ASBA to the winner of each age division. Sincere appreciation goes to all who helped to start this event. Most adults would be very impressed with the broad knowledge and critical thinking skills our juniors have regarding the science of sheep production. The field is wide open for activities throughout the year that can enrich the experiences for juniors owning Southdowns. Two dedicated ASBA committees have been working this winter to improve our current programs and create more. Some may believe the limitation to be financial, but the true limitation is simply the list of volunteers on the grass roots level who are available to implement activities within their state and encourage participation of junior members. Please watch for developments through the ASBA website, Facebook announcements and e-blasts from the ASBA office for junior events and volunteer opportunities.

ASBA Board of Directors President 4 THE AMERICAN SOUTHDOWN JOURNAL & DIRECTORY 2014


Secretary’’ ’ s Column For over twenty- five years, the American Southdown Breeders’ Association has made it a priority to communicate through some form of a written publication with its membership and those who might be interested in raising Southdowns. This publication began as a newsletter and soon developed into a very nice journal that presents a snapshot of what this great breed has to offer. This year is no different as you can thumb through this issue of the Journal and Directory and get a vision of the possibilities available to you in the Southdown breed. From breeders dedicated to raising the best sheep possible to our many youth programs, you will soon see your potential for becoming actively involved in the American Southdown Breeders’ Association. I encourage you to enjoy every aspect of Southdowns. Southdowns and Youth – you cannot be a part of the Southdown breed for very long and not realize the two go together perfectly. I believe it all starts with the moderate size of the breed. The ewes are able to adequately maintain themselves on less forage than many other breeds. These mothers gestate and lactate without excessive supplementation. They do a beautiful job of raising twins. Next, consider the great disposition of the breed; few if any other breeds are as “user friendly” or as “youth friendly” as Southdowns. This makes it much more enjoyable to raise Southdowns – not to mention that they are more cost effective than other breeds. Aside from managing and lambing Southdowns, there are more enjoyable benefits. Most younger youth are not intimidated by the size and disposition of this breed. Then along comes the shows that so many enjoy. Whether it is your local county fair, a state fair or a national event, all Southdowns are shown slick sheared. No matter your location or your preference in type of Southdowns, all shows require them to be shorn. Whether you are a veteran of the show ring, or if this is your first time to fit a Southdown, you can more easily fit your project and be proud of your sheep’s appearance when you enter the ring. Southdowns make the perfect family project. Mom and Dad do not have to do all the work, because from a young age, children can handle and enjoy them. They are a perfect fit for teaching responsibility and developing character. Additionally, one of the ASBA’s primary goals is to support and involve youth through the many youth programs available. This publication will give much information about those programs. No matter your age or your location, you have a choice in the breeds of sheep as you first get in the business. I encourage you to consider Southdowns. Our youth programs are second to none in the sheep industry and this breed has stood Don’t forget! the test that only time can give. Enjoy the many opportunities that The ASBA website offers online countless others have relished. Let’s make 2014 the best year for Southdowns yet.

The committee has allocated $2000 from the Junior funds for expenses associated with a leadership conference. E. The Ambassador committee is in charge of the supervision and direction of individual ambassadors. REGIONAL JUNIOR SHOWS A. Two regional Junior shows will be sponsored during 2014. The San Diego fair and the Wisconsin Sheep Festival will be used as a test to develop educational seminars, non sheep show competitive events and Junior breeders gathering. This will be in addition to a Southdown sheep show. B. These two regional shows will receive $300 support if their proposal includes and educational event, a non show competitive event and a junior gathering. C. The committee recommends the termination of the matching funds of $150 to state associations and will combine that money with $150 for each show from the junior funds. NATIONAL JUNIOR SHOW (ALL-AMERICAN) The National Junior Show Committee, along with the ambassadors, will act as host to the Southdown exhibitors at the 2014 All American. Juniors will receive assistance a check in, at unloading, recognizing class breaks, and invited to a Southdown event. The primary topic at the Southdown event will be the discussion of future regional Junior shows.

It is proposed that up to $1000 be allocated for the expenses of the mixer. Junior members would be encouraged to remain for the annual meeting. The informal Board of Directors meeting would be moved to Friday. COMPETIVE RECORD OR PRODUCTION CONTEST A committee will be formed to organize a competitive activity along the lines of a production recordkeeping project. This activity will be intended to draw participation of juniors that are unable to attend national events, although it will be open to all juniors. This program will be implemented and 2015.

Scramlin reported on the 2013 National Southdown Sale held in May in Eaton, Ohio. Our thanks go to the Ohio Southdown Association for their sponsorship of this great sale. The Board has again selected the Ohio Sale to be the site of the 2014 National Sale. Amy Powell informed the membership of the success of the 2013 National Junior Show held in conjunction with the AllAmerican Junior Show at Michigan State. With the Southdowns boasting the largest breed show, it was a great show that included a number of great activities for our Southdown youth. The 2014 National Junior Show will be in Kansas. President Bishop thanked Held Brothers, Pleasant Springs, and Dale Davis for their donations of ewes for the 2013 “Ewes for Youth” program. The three ewe lambs were presented to youth from Maryland, Ohio, and Texas. President Bishop also thanked Megan Nielson for her help in coordinating the successful skillathon that was held on Saturday morning for our youth. Some very unique awards were presented to the winners in the three divisions. Jim Davis announced the winners of this year’s Pot of Gold Futurity. With record numbers of nominations, the winner of the yearling ewe division was Nick Fowler with a ewe bred by Rincker Southdowns; the fall ewe lamb division was won by Jenna Langer with a lamb bred by MB Genetics; the spring ewe lamb division was won by Seth Michel on a lamb bred by A&M Ranch. President Bishop presented checks of $600 each to the three youth selected this year as scholarship winners. Those youth are Nick Fowler, Jenna Langer, and Caroline Kuhn. Lisa Scramlin thanked all the breeders for their support and positive comments on this year’s publications and indicated she looks forward to working with the membership on the 2014 Journal and Directory as well as the Louisville Preview. The President then called for New Business. President Bishop thanked Monty Jones for his years of service as a director from Region 1, District 3. Due to other commitments, Monty has resigned from his directorship with one year remaining on his term. The Board has appointed Heath Laber to serve this one year remaining in the term.

The President then asked the membership present to vote for either Brian Forsee or Lynn Kuhn for Region 3, At Large. As the votes were being counted, Matt Scramlin auctioneered off the Southdown wool baby blanket donated by Sue Ann Carpenter. The blanket sold for $225 to John Nixon. At this time, it was announced that Brian Forsee would be the director in Region 3, At Large. Jim Davis then reported on the nomination committee’s recommendations for judge of the 2014 National Show. Those names are Brad Payne, F. D. McCarthy, and Brad Ellerbrock.

The membership was then asked to vote for their choice of judge of the 2014 National Show. As votes were being counted, the President reported on action taken by the Board, which included changes to the futurity rules, progress in the youth program, and the change that wethers would no longer need registration papers at Association sponsored shows. The members were then asked to vote for either Farabee McCarthy or Brad Ellerbrock as judge of the 2014 National Show. It was announced the Farabee McCarthy would be the first choice as judge of the 2014 National Show. President Bishop then spoke on the proposed change in the constitution and by-laws concerning term limits for directors of the Association. A motion to limit directors serving to 21 years was made last year in the director’s meeting and would need to be voted on by the member at the annual meeting and pass by a 2/3 majority to change the constitution. The members were asked to vote on this issue. The motion to change the constitution failed. The Spirit of the Breed recipient for 2013 was then announced as Claudette Choma of Connecticut. Claudette was complimented for her many years of unselfish service to the breed, especially at the youth events across the country. President Bishop asked for any further business from the membership. Frank Sexten asked the Board to reexamine the futurity rule concerning counting futurity points on separate days at State Fairs. With no further business, the motion to adjourn was give by L.C. Scramlin, with a second by Jim Davis. Motion passed and the meeting adjourned at 8:50 p.m.

The breeders that had donated ewes were Held Brothers of South Dakota, Dale Davis of Ohio, and Pleasant Spring Southdowns of Wisconsin. Patty Abell, of the Pot of Gold Futurity Committee, reported that this year’s futurity would award the largest amount of premiums in the history of the futurity to those who participated This is due to the generous support of all breeders at the sales. Jeff Repasky, of the Breed Type Committee, noted that his committee would be working on improving the best breed type ram and ewe selection at the National Sale. He reported that a best breed type ram and ewe had been selected at this past year’s National Sale.

INFORMAL MEETING MINUTES CONTINUED

Lisa Scramlin spoke to the board about her work with both the Southdown Journal and Directory and the Louisville Preview. It was noted that the Board was extremely pleased with the very attractive and timely issues printed this year. They also commended her performance as editor. Mike Crowder, spoke on behalf of Willoughby Sale management. He stated that he appreciated the Association’s support of the online sales this past year and looked forward to future year’s cooperation. Amy Powell of the Youth Leadership Committee noted that she had submitted some possible guidelines for future youth events that are worthy of consideration. Mike McElvain of the Policy and Procedure Committee presented a packet of materials from the Policy and Procedure Manual denoting several small changes that need to be made to update the manual. It was moved by Mike to adapt the changes to the Policy and Procedure Manual as noted. This was seconded by Patty Abell and the motion carried. Mike McElvain then moved to eliminate the registration of all Southdown wethers and to update the sale warranty for sale sheep. This was seconded by Patty Abell. The Association sponsored sale warranty would read as such: At all sales sponsored by this Association the seller warrants to the buyer that sheep sold are free of hereditary chrondrodysplasia (spider), ectodermal dysplasia (hairy lamb) and contain a minimum of one R at codon 171. Any claimed violation of this warranty shall be settled between the buyer and seller. This guarantee shall constitute a contract between the buyer and the seller only. No other parties, including but not limited to the American Southdown Breeders’ Association, Sale Management and sponsoring organizations, shall assume any liability, legal or otherwise, express or implied. Any seller failing to in good faith comply with this rule shall be denied the right to register and transfer with the Association and will be automatically barred from selling any sheep for five (5) years to this sale or any sale sponsored or sanctioned by the American Southdown Breeders’ Association including the National Sale. After discussion on the sale warranty policy, Brian Forsee moved to amend the motion by deleting the words “5 years” in the sale policy, and add in place the words “or until resolved”. The amendment to the motion was seconded by Patty Abell. The amendment to the motion passed. Then the amended motion was voted on and passed. L.C. Scramlin of the Budget Committee presented a budget for the coming fiscal year with a total amount of $86,275.00 projected in income and expenses. After discussion, it was moved by Mike McElvain to approve the initial budget as presented. Seconded by Jim Davis, the motion passed. There was then discussion about the possibility of establishing a youth coordinator position for the Association. It was moved by Mike McElvain to designate $8,000 from the youth funds for the position. The president should appoint a committee that would submit to the Board at the next held meeting a report proposing a job description for the coordinator and ideas for additional youth programs and activities. This was seconded by Brian Forsee, and the motion passed unanimously. The President then called for New Business. Brian Forsee moved that the 2014 National Show be held in conjunction with the North American International Livestock Exposition. The motion was seconded by L. C. Scramlin and passed. Regional Shows were discussed and proposals presented. It was moved by J. J. Maddux to designated the following three regional shows: the San Diego County Fair in California, the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival and the Big E show in Massachusetts. This was seconded by Jeff Oldenburg. The motion passed. It was moved by Jeff Repasky that the 2014 National Junior Show be held with the All-American Show in Kansas. Jeff Oldenburg seconded the motion and the motion passed. It was noted by the President that the current slick shearing policy of the Association needs to be enforced and understood by the youth showing Southdowns. Mike McElvain moved that the 2014 National Sale be held in Ohio if the sale is online, and if the sale is not presented online, it still be designated the National Sale. Brian Forsee seconded the motion. The motion carried. Jim Davis moved that any sale or show that is ASBA sanctioned must have American Southdown Breeders’ Association registration papers. It was seconded by Mike McElvain. The motion passed. The Executive Secretary then read a letter concerning the Midwest Junior Preview show in Missouri and its need for sponsorship. No action was taken on this item. Brian Forsee brought up his concern over the “hairy lamb” policy and its implementation for show purposes. After discussion, Brian moved that all rams be EDF free at all ASBA sanctioned shows, both open and junior beginning January 1, 2014, but that ewes would be delayed until January 1, 2016. This was seconded by Jeff Repasky. With a vote of hands, the motion passed by a vote of 6 to 4. L. C. Scramlin moved that Pot of Gold futurity points could be counted from both the junior and open shows at the same state fair if the shows are on totally different days and if judged by a different judge. Seconded by Jim Davis, the motion passed. The Executive Secretary noted that he would like to see a new youth program to encourage our youth members to become breeders of quality Southdowns. He proposed the new program called the “Next Generation” program. With no further business to conduct, the motion to adjourn was made by Patty Abell with a second from Jeff Oldenburg. The motion passed, and the meeting was adjourned at 7:18 p.m.
