The Piedmontese Association of the United States offers many services for those interested in working with the Piedmontese breed and we strive to have a family mindset within our organization. We have several different membership options to better serve and fit the needs of our members and associates.
We provide cattle registration services through Anaborapi, publications and annual meetings with active member voting. All “family” members have an equal vote in the decisions made within our organization! Weather you have one cow or a hundred, your vote counts equally! Once you join and become a member, you will receive publications focusing on the Piedmontese breed and our organization. Our newsletter contains up to date information on the current happenings within PAUS, articles, advertising, and information important to breeders. This is produced once per quarter. We also supply a fullcolor trifold brochure complete with information and photos. These are available to the members to help them promote the wonderful benefits of the Piedmontese breed and excellent meat qualities.
A full-sizebreeding calendar is sent out once a year, as well as a membership directory. The Association has also adopted a Breed Standard Guide Book available to newly joined family members. Joining is a great way to connect with other breeders and receive support from the rest of the family of Piedmontese Breeders!
