Tail Docking

by Site Admin on May 17, 2017

The attached article is from the Feb. issue of The Shepherd (posted with author & publisher permissions). The attached letter was recently sent to the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) from the American Association of Small Ruminant Practitioners (AASRP) regarding the practice of tail docking. The recent raised awareness led to tail docking being discussed at the last ARBA board of directors meeting, see minutes dated April 8, 2017. Prior to making any decisions or policies, the board would like to hear member’s perspectives and comments. Please direct any feedback to president@americanromey.org. Member comments & feedback will be discussed at the next board meeting.
