Currently there are three types of membership offered by the American Sales Association. Membership may be listed in the name of an individual, a farm or ranch name, or a partnership or corporation. An ASA application for membership must be filed with the association.
Regular Membership – This membership is open to any breeder or owner of Salers cattle. Membership fees are collected once a year in October and include a subscription to the “American Salers” magazine. Regular members have voting privileges, herd numbers and are assigned a membership number. Members can utilize information and services provided by the ASA at the member cost.
Junior Membership – Junior memberships are issued to young persons 22 years of age and younger. The membership name cannot include ranch names or partnerships. Junior members are allowed to vote within the ASJA. As junior members turn 22, they can become a regular or an associate member of the ASA by paying the appropriate membership fee. The junior’s herd prefix and membership number will remain the same. The name of the membership can be changed at this time for no extra charge.
Associate Membership – This membership is available to any person interested in the Salers breed. They can transfer cattle and use other services at non-member rates. Associate members are commercial cattlemen or other persons interested in the Salers breed. The associate member does not have ASA voting privileges but does receive the “American Salers” publication. Associate memberships can be converted to regular memberships with payment of the fee difference.
