How to become a registered Suffolk stud

The Australian Stud Sheep Breeders Association, ASSBA, manages all of the Australian Suffolk Sheep Society’s memberships, ram and ewe registrations and transfers and publishes a Flock book from the flock register annually for all registered members.

When you purchase sheep registered in the Australian Flock Register, you will be invited to join the Australian Stud Sheep Breeders Association Ltd. Membership will give you access to the Society-sponsored shows and sales and will enable you to make use of the Society’s records of flocks, breeding, recording of pedigrees etc.

Application for membership is lodged with the Federal Secretary of The Australian Stud Sheep Breeders Association Federal Council, from where it then goes to the Federal Board for consideration.

When your application is made, you will be required to give information regarding the sheep you have purchased, and also to apply for a Stud Prefix, the name by which your Stud will be known.

You will need to go to the Australian Stud Sheep Breeders website for current membership forms and fees and charges:
