Welcome to the Sonoma County Sheep Breeders Association Website!
Our membership includes Registered, Purebred breeders, Wether style breeders, Club lamb breeders, 4-H leaders, 4-H and FFA members interested in promotion of the sheep industry and local community partners! We believe strongly in supporting the youth livestock programs and have tried to keep our Fitting Contest, Bred & Born, and NCI events strong and active. Our NCI show was the largest of record and had youth from 6 counties. We meet 3 times per year for our meetings and social hour. We host the North Coast Invitational Show at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah every May for members in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake and Humboldt Counties to show their market and wether dams lambs. Our NCI is open Statewide for the Registered Sheep Division. We also sponsor awards at the local fairs - Sonoma Marin Fair for Premier Breeder for Registered Sheep, Premier Exhibitor for Wether Dams, and Champion Jackpot Lamb - Sonoma County Fair for Premier Breeder for Registered, Premier Exhibitor for Wether Dams and Champion Bred and Born Lamb. In memory of Ron Olson, a longtime Sonoma County Dorset Breeder we sponsor awards at Sonoma County Fair for Champion FFA and 4-H Dorset market lamb. We take great pride in the youth of our region and have developed a Jr. Membership with the Association to further develop field days and educational events to help promote sheep and give our youth some great opportunities. We would love to have you join us!
