American Romney Breeders National Online Sale for 2021
This year due to Covid issues and the uncertainty of what fairs may actually be opened and operating, it has been decided to have our National sale online. This will be a new format for us as an association and for most of us on a personal level. The sale will be held on May 18th, 2021 and managed by Integrity Livestock Sales. Integrity Livestock Sales comes with a very good reputation and has been working with other associations to handle their annual sales as well. Basically, it operates as follows: The consignor will complete a basic template (excel sheet) and return to Mike Crowder at Integrity ( ). If the column on Excel sheet doesn’t apply to you, just leave it blank. There is a comment column so feel free to write a descriptive statement regarding your specific consigned animal. Codon is not required but recommended. It is up to the consignor to take the pictures and send in with consigned lot to Mike. The information needs to be to Integrity by May 3rd, 2021 so they can get it uploaded and available to the public. Entry fee can be sent to Charlene Carlisle, 510 Centerton Rd, Moorestown, NJ 08057. Integrity takes a 10% commission but will return 5% to ARBA with a portion to be given back to the Juniors. Premium checks should be back to the consignor within 14 days after the sale.
*** sale info goes to Integrity via email *** entry fee goes to Charlene via snail mail ***

Health papers will need to be provided by the consigner. Should a ram (or ewe) be sold to a state that requires special testing, it is expected that the seller and the buyer will mutually work together to meet state regulations. It is important to network for transportation options. Assist new buyers in securing rides especially if they are new to the breed or sheep in general. There are plans to have some shows in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri in May, June and July, so there should be trailers heading east and west.
