Annual Service Fees

The American Simmental Association has implemented an annual service fee. There is a one-time setup fee of $50 for all new adult members. In addition, there is an annual service fee of $110, based on our fiscal year of July 1 – June 30. If you join ASA in the first half of our fiscal year (July 1- Dec 30) we require you to pay the entire $110 fee. If you join in the second half of the fiscal year (Jan 1 – June 30) we only require that you pay $55 (half of the service fee). All annual service fees are billed at the start of our fiscal year, July 1. To remain active and receive membership benefits you must pay this annual service fee each year.

Adult Membership $110/year

Junior Membership $50/year

Household Membership $160/year
(for multiple memberships billed at a single address)

This fee includes a subscription to the Register, the official publication of ASA, and access to ASA's registration and performance system.

If you are a non-member breeder that registers 2 or more calves with ASA each year, you will pay 3 times the cost that members pay to register a calf. For example:

Non-Member

(Per calf registration cost of $126) X (2 head)= $252
(Per calf registration cost of $126) X (3 head)= $378
(Per calf registration cost of $126) X (4 head)= $504

First-Time Member

(First-time membership fee of $160) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (2 head)= $244
(First-time membership fee of $160) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (3 head)= $286
(First-time membership fee of $160) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (4 head)= $328

Member

(Membership fee of $110) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (2 head)= $194
(Membership fee of $110) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (3 head)= $236
(Membership fee of $110) + (Per calf registration cost of $42) (4 head)= $278
