NEWS FROM AMZA

Special — AMZA Zebu Registration — Special

The AMZA BOD would like to take this time to extend our ‘Thank you’ to our existing loyal AMZA
Members and any new potential individuals, families, or businesses that would like to join the AMZA
with offering a special on a new Zebu Registration for a fee of $15.00 each beginning May 15th, 2021
thru June 14th, 2021. (Existing AMZA Members taking advantage of this special will need to be current
with their AMZA Membership dues and any new individuals, families, or businesses wishing to take
advantage of this special will need to join the AMZA Membership prior to a new Zebu Registration being
processed. A Herd Name will also need to be paid for, if applicable to the zebu being registered.)
(Hardship Registrations are excluded from this offer) The AMZA BOD realizes that with the ongoing
Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, which has affected many of the AMZA members and potential members,
some of the members may have fallen behind with registering their zebus. With calving season upon us,
as well as upcoming shows this is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of this special to register
your zebus.
All AMZA Forms can be found under the Forms tab.
Please direct any questions to Bobbi Thompson at amzaregistrar@gmail.com or 352-391-0977.
Thank you,
The AMZA BOD
