The Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders (AASMB) has been the peak body for Stud Merino breeders since 1959 when the six state associations united to provide national Industry representation. Sixty years later the AASMB continues to represent 900+ Merino studs through their state bodies on national and international matters concerning the Merino industry.
