ABOUT US

The Australian Suffolk Association

The Australian Suffolk Association (ASA) was formed 1990 when Suffolk sheep breeders in Western Australia left the Australian Society of Breeders of British Sheep (ASBBS). The reason for forming the ASA was that breeders wanted an association that solely promoted the benefits of the Suffolk breed of sheep. The first flock book of the ASA was printed in 1991 with 54 members. The Association has since grown to over 70 members in four states of Australia with increasing interest from Suffolk breeders outside of Western Australia.

The main objectives of the ASA are:

To encourage the breeding and improvement of the Australian Suffolk sheep. To Publicize the merits of the breed. The safeguarding of the purity of the breed. To work with other Suffolk sheep breeders from around the globe for the betterment of the Suffolk breed. The Australian Suffolk Association is managed by a president, a committee, and volunteers. The office bearers contact details can be found on the Contacts page
