an effort to improve the sale I (remember ya’ll put me over this) am making a few changes in order to improve the sale
and it’s quality. Having spoken with numerous other breed associations and auctions I have reached what I hope will
be decisions that enhance the program and will benefit all of us.

Some of you may be wondering what CSNFA stands for and I will now explain. The
Coastal South Native Flock Alliance was founded 07 April, 2007 by a group of dedicated native sheep producers in order to
promote and protect our Gulf Coast Native Sheep. Outside pressures and the need to preserve our cultural integrity necessitated
the formation of such a group and we are proud that the original families that have held these flocks for generations have
taken the lead to protect our flocks integrity and heritage.
Charlie Carter suggested that each producer, if so inclined, would donate one calf to the association and what it brought
would be used to put us in better financial shape. He and I both plan to do so and encourage others to do so as well.
We will be running the concession stand this year and are calling for volunteers.
If you would like to help please let me know.
We ask that anyone
