Welcome to the sixth issue of the Louisville Preview.
It was a lot of fun creating the Louisville Preview again this year. I really love this publication because it always gets me in the mindset of fall, NAILE and lambing season.
Thanks so much to everyone that helped make this publication possible. Also, thank you to all the Southdown breeders and ASBA members for helping to make our association and breed so outstanding. See you at NAILE! Lisa

SUCCESSFUL YEAR Southdown sales are strong. With 30 online sales of Southdowns, major live auctions and private sales on the farm our numbers remain stable. While other Associations have fought declining registrations, we have been able to maintain a stable number for the last 20 years. THE ASSOCIATION EXISTS TO REGISTER SHEEP The purpose of the American Southdown Breedersâ€™ Association is to collect, verify, preserve and publish pedigrees of purebred Southdown sheep. Of course, we have an extensive junior program and sponsor a good number of activities throughout the year. But, the reason we exist is to supervise and publish pedigrees of Southdown sheep. While some sales are transactions between breeders, most of our registration and transfers are to new purchasers. Those new to the breed may not recognize the significance of accurate and prompt recordkeeping for the purpose of having registration papers available when needed. As breeders, we need to see that all purchasers understand the care taken to ensure accurate registrations and help educate them on their responsibility for the proper recording of sheep they raise and the transfers of those they sell. ELECTRONIC TRANSACTION Back when all business was done through the mail everyone recognized that registration of sheep needed to be done well before the registration paper was needed. We all knew there was a turnaround time and administrative time in the office had to be taken into account for upcoming sales and shows. In staying with the times our registration process has allowed for electronic payment and submission of information. Unfortunately, that has led to procrastination with many people waiting until the last moment to request their registrations. It is not uncommon for calls to come to the office from the fairground where the expectant exhibitor needs registration papers. AVOID THE EXTRA RUSH FEE The fee for rush registration was never intended to make the Association money. The real intent was to motivate breeders to register sheep when the rates were less so the workload in the Association office could be spread throughout out the year. Still, with Federal Express charges and rush registrations some will incur a bill of up to $60 for a single registration paper. The Association does not want that to happen. Established breeders can help their new customers avoid these costs by educating them about the responsibility that goes with owning registered animals. WHAT CAN WE DO We can all do some simple things to avoid the expense of last-minute rush fees. 1. Set a good example for your purchaser, submit the transfer information and registration papers before you deposit the check in the bank. 2. If the owner of the offspring is different than the dam ownership, transfer at registration. 3. If the ownership of the ram and ewe are not the same, be sure and include your breeding certificate. 4. Use the registration forms off of the Internet (www.southdownsheep.org) or follow their format to be sure you supplied all of the necessary information. 5. Sign your registration applications consistently. Do not mix your farm name and your personal name and use various combinations in succeeding years. Stick with one ownership designation. 6. Do not procrastinate. Mike McElvain President ASBA Board of Directors

Dear American Southdown Breeders’ Association Member, In accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws of the American Southdown Breeders’ Association, this is your official written notice of the annual meeting of this Association. The 134th annual meeting will be held Saturday, November 12, 2016, in the south wing of the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, Louisville, Kentucky. The traditional banquet has been replaced with a casual mixer which will begin at 6:00 p.m. with the annual meeting immediately following. This promises to be a convenient opportunity to socialize with Southdown breeders and their families from across America, to review the year’s activities by the Southdown Ambassador team, and to recognize the achievements of Southdown members before sitting down to conduct the business of our association. It is our hope that you will be able to attend the annual meeting and many of the events of the North American International Livestock Exposition. With the schedule changes in the big “junior weekend,” it would be best to check our website or that of the North American for the schedule of all events. Our Association will sponsor on Saturday a skillathon for our youth members starts at 9:00 a.m., followed by the ‘Stars ot Louisville” ewe sale at 12:30 p.m. Sunday’s junior breeding show will begin at 8:00 a.m. with Southdowns to show at a time yet to be determined. The National Southdown Show will begin Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. If you attend the annual meeting and are a member who has paid dues in the past fiscal year, you are entitled to vote on election and business items. If you cannot attend and wish to vote, a proxy may represent you. A member must personally request the proxy in writing after receiving notice of the annual meeting, then file at least 15 days prior to the meeting, said proxy in the office of the Executive Secretary of the Association. Again, it is our sincere hope that you can attend the North American and all the events involving the Southdown breed. It has been another strong year for our breed, and Louisville will be a fitting close to the 134th year of the Association. Sincerely, Mike McElvain President American Southdown Breeders’ Association
