The Association

merino picThe 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 Merino studs and the Merino on national and international matters concerning the Merino Industry.

The key objects of the AASMB include Advocacy, Promotion, Merino Standards and the Australian Merino Flock Register. The Association strives to achieve its goals in an environment that is tough and unpredictable. 

The AASMB maintains a close interest in matters affecting the Stud and Commercial Merino Industry and from time to time is consulted by and/or gives direction to government, statutory authorities, scientific organizations and individuals, both in Australia and overseas.
