The Association was established in 1993 as a non-profit organisation, primarily to represent the interests of breeders of purebred Finnsheep.
The Association promotes the breed, and focuses on the relevance of both purebred Finnsheep and Finnsheep composites in the Australian Sheep Flock.
Anyone with an interest in Finns is encouraged to join the Association and contribute to the future of the breed.
Both the Annual General Meeting, which is held in June/July, and Council meetings are open to all members.
The Association encourages all members to participate in field days and meetings and welcomes suggestions on how to best promote the Finn to the Australian sheep farmer, butcher, and consumer.
