Take advantage of the benefits available with the set fee Package membership option that covers most member services you use during the year. Your registered cow inventory forms the basis for the fee, using a discount for volume scale so the more cows you have the lower the per cow fee.
Most of the services provided by the Association are included in the set fee option and once you join there are no more Package charges to pay. Also the Package fee is payable in 12 equal monthly instalments for easier budgeting and simple billing.
Please note: Breeders must be a Full member for 12 months to access Package membership.
