Already a Non-member?  What is a Non-member?

If you have already purchased SimGenetics in the past, it is likely that you have a non-member account in our ASA database. With this account, you have been able to conduct business with the ASA and have animals transferred to you within the database. However, the cost and membership benefits listed above have not been available to you.

Upon your decision to become a member of the American Simmental Association, you will be provided with all of the above benefits.
