Message from the President of ASBA

 Dear Alberta Purebred Sheep Producer,

On behalf of the Alberta Sheep Breeders Association (ASBA) I would like to invite you to become involved in our organization. Established in 1905, the ASBA is the oldest purebred livestock association in Canada. According to our by-laws the mission of ASBA shall be:

To encourage an overall and consistent improvement in the breeding and management of purebred sheep in Alberta, either solely or in collaboration with other similarly interested parties.

To hold shows and sales of sheep and wool, either solely or as a collaborator with other interested parties.

 To represent the interests of the Alberta purebred sheep industry honorably.

The ASBA is a volunteer organization that is funded by monies received through registrations and transfers by producers who are members of CSBA. Membership in ASBA is not limited to members of CSBA and we welcome active, junior, and associate members.

Some benefits of ASBA membership include:

  • Advertising opportunities on the ASBA website ( which receives an average of 1000 hits per month and on the ASBA Map to promote your products.
  • The opportunity to shape your industry by providing input to the Canadian Sheep Breeders Association. The CSBA has input to national level producer organizations such as the Canadian Sheep Federation (CSF), CFIA, and the Canadian Livestock Genetics Association (CLGA).
  • The opportunity to have a presence at the Calgary Stampede sheep showcase to promote your seed stock industry.

We welcome your input and participation in an organization that has stood the test of time and continues to thrive despite the new challenges that each year brings.

Looking forward to having you join us by completing our online application form.
