ANNUAL BREED PROMOTION FEE - BORDER LEICESTER STUDS

Dear ABLA Member,

As you will all be aware over the last few years the Australian Border Leicester Association has requested an additional ewe levy of $0.20 cents per ewe.

This levy helps to provide additional funding to the ABLA for the promotion of the Border Leicester breed in the face of rising costs and competition from other breeds. The ABLA is also looking at support from agribusinesses, through sponsorship, so it can widen its income base and reduce the need for future increases in the ewe levy.


Therefore, you are reminded that the total ewe levy payable by Border Leicester breeders this year will be $0.75 cents (GST inclusive) per ewe and will be summarised on the Annual Return form as follows:-

  • Number of Ewes in Flock 1 year and over as at 1st March $0.55 cents per ewe.
  • Additional Ewe Levy per ewe, as requested by your Breed Society $0.20 cents per ewe.

Breakdown of ASSBA Ewe Levy for Border Leicester Breeders:

  • State ASSBA Branch $0.11 cents
  • Ewe Levy - distributed to the ABLA $0.59 cents
  • ASSBA Special Occasion Reserve $0.05 cents
  • Total Levy $0.75 cents

We trust that you will continue to support these decisions made by the ABLA, which will enable us to continue to efficiently promote your breed.

On behalf of
Ian Carr, Secretary
Australian Border Leicester Association
