Dear Southdown Breeder,

As you will be aware, for the past two years Southdown Australia Inc. has requested an additional ewe levy of $1.00 per ewe to be contributed by Southdown breeders following a decision made at the Annual General Meeting held at Geelong on the 17th October 2014.

Subsequently, Southdown Australia has asked ASSBA to collect this levy on its behalf as an additional breed ewe levy with the annual return fees.

The sole purpose of this levy is to provide additional funding to Southdown Australia Inc. for the promotion of the Southdown breed.

Therefore we ask that you please provide a total ewe levy this year of $1.55 (GST inclusive) per ewe. This 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
  • Additional ewe levy, per ewe, as requested by your breed society  $1.00

We trust that you will continue to support this decision made by Southdown Australia Inc., which will enable us to continue to efficiently promote your breed.

Yours truly,

Lyn Dehnert
Secretary / Treasurer
Southdown Australia Inc.
