Important Announcements

The ADSBS Board of Directors met to discuss and decide on a strategy for upcoming scheduled events.  The Mid-America Dorper Sale in Duncan, OK has been cancelled due to the closure of the fairgrounds. The ADSBS Youth activities there are also cancelled.  It was decided to not reschedule the show and sale, and the Annual General Membership meeting until quarantines had been lifted, but to refund entry fees (unless members opt to have a credit at the registry office, or donate their fees to the youth program) and distribute the sale catalog as a resource for those shopping for breeding stock.  Click here for the Mid America Sale Catalog.

Due to difficulties with travel, the Dorper Educational Course in Texas scheduled in May is also cancelled.

The Board decided to proceed with the Sunflower Classic Dorper Sale, May 15-16 in Hutchinson, KS.  The situation will be re-evaluated by the board in late April if necessary.

ADSBS membership should be aware that the information published in the Spring issue of The Dorper Report is outdated, superseded by this announcement.
