Open Letter to Membership:
AMZA is happy to announce our new registrar Bobbi Thompson. Raised in a farming community in the Midwest, Bobbi moved to Florida in 2007 and quickly found her passion in Zebus. With a herd of more than 40 zebus, she and Rick Ressler have become one of Florida’s premium breeders and exhibitors. Bobbi brings a wealth of information and energy to her new position.
Her new duties officially begin Monday August 29, 2016.
Over the last several weeks, Jim Mannos and Bobbi have worked very closely to ensure a smooth transition. Although we believe they have covered all bases, any business in transit we will handled individually between Jim and Bobbi.
Effective Monday, August 29, 2016
- All mail received at our Ferris P.O. address will forwarded to the new office in Florida.
- Current AMZA office phone will be forward to the number – 352.391.0977
- firstname.lastname@example.org will be redirected to the Florida office.
- All communication regarding registry will be conducted from the Florida office.
As excited as we are to have Bobbi as a part of our new team, there is some sadness in seeing Jim retire. As most you know, Jim has been an integral part of AMZA since its inception in 2003 and will be missed!
As of August 29, 2016, please address all AMZA related questions to the new Registrar. Jim will be around the next few months to assist Bobbi, as needed, and redirect any questions as necessary to the appropriate person.

State Fair of Texas 2016
September30 through October 2, 2016
GREAT NEWS FOR THIS YEAR!
Congratulations to Josh Bottleberghe, who has been named the new Zebu Superintendent for the State Fair of Texas and representative for the NZCC Show!
In support of this change, the AMZA is going to provide free processing of all of the club show enties and no club entry fee! That's right. No club entry fees and also no sanction fees! Numbers for the Fair have gone down in recent years and hopefully, through this, we will be able renew interest in this wonderful event!
A LITTLE HISTORY:
The 1st AMZA sanctioned Zebu Show ever was at the State Fair of Texas in 2004. David Millison and I worked with the Fair to accomplish this and convinced the Fair to allow us to do a second Club show. The Fair had never done a second show before! Since then there have been over 150 AMZA sanctioned shows taking place all over the country. David also worked with The State Fair of Louisianna, State Fair of Florida, The Houston Livestock Show, and the State Fair of Colorado to start shows at those venues.
BACK TO THE TEXAS FAIR:
DEADLINE for your entries to the State Fair of Texas Fair Show is September 1st. See www.bigtex.com , see Livestock/exhibitors These entries need must be done through the Fair.
DEADLINE for entries to AMZA for the club show is September 20. You can log on to the AMZA webpage and submit your entries for the NZCC club show or you can mail them to me and I will update them in the program. I will coordinate with Josh re a deadline for substitutions.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, David or Josh.
I hope all of you enjoy the Fair as I have for many many years!
