The American Coopworth Registry held our first annual meeting at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, May 3, 2003. Temporary officers were elected and a committee was formed to refine the performance-recording program for members wishing to participate. President Pro-tem Martha McGrath stated that we have the opportunity to create a unique program in the Coopworth breed in North America for measuring the performance of lambs and adult sheep.

Secretary Pam Child reported that since formation of the Registry last spring, our registrar, Associated Sheep Registries of Milo, Iowa, has registered eighty sheep (not including 2003 lambs), with 200 animals having been entered into the database. Pam also gave a report on the progress of the website, which her husband, Jim, has designed. All the registry forms will soon be available on the website. Jim is also working on a “Marketplace” page where members may advertise lambs, wool and equipment for sale. ACR promotional t-shirts, tote bags, and stickers are available, too.

ACR registers all purebred Coopworth sheep, encourages performance recording, and allows competitive showing. We are planning an “upgrade” program similar to that of the New Zealand Coopworth society. All Coopworth enthusiasts are invited to join! Membership is $20/yr. initially, $15/yr renewal.

For more information, contact ACR Secretary Pam Child, 82 Sproul Hill Road, Bristol, ME 004539-3211 or visit us on the web at www.AmericanCoopworthRegistry.org
