Membership & Benefits
As President of the Southern Aberdeen Breeders Association, I want to encourage you to familiarize yourself with our website and the many benefits available to our members. Membership in SABA allows you to join forces with the largest Aberdeen regional association affiliated with the American Aberdeen Association. Browse the classified section which affords free listings for SABA members. In the membership directory you will also notice that each member can list the products that they offer ----fullblood, percentage, grass-fed, show, etc. for prospective buyers. Each year, SABA sponsors two sale events – held in conjunction with the International Aberdeen Show at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the annual Get-Back-To-Grass Sale. Membership in SABA is required to participate in these two sales. SABA also sponsors one or two field days each year, where educational talks and demonstrations are held for the benefit of our members and other interested individuals. If you have a child who is wanting to be involved in Aberdeens, check out the Junior page of our website where they can see how to get involved with other youngsters. Hopefully, you will see the advantage of being involved with others interested in furthering the Aberdeen breed. You will make lifelong friendships with a really fine group of people.
