Welcome to the official website of the American Oxford Sheep Association, Inc. which serves as the national registry for purebred Oxford sheep in the United States. The Oxford is the largest and heaviest of the Down breeds which were developed during the 1800s mainly on the chalklands of southern England and its’ popularity in the United States is ever-increasing.

This site is designed to provide information about both Oxford sheep and AOSA. Please use the navigational links to the left for more specific information. Forward website suggestions and updates to David Trotter at secretary@americanoxfords.org

Thank you for your interest in Oxfords - Truly the World’s Best!




2016 NAILE
The premium book for the 2016 North American International Livestock Exposition is now on-line at www.livestockexpo.org/premiumBookJudges.html and hard copies of the book should be available very soon. Entry deadline for sheep for 2016 is October 8.
There is a statement found in both the Mary Blome National Oxford Show and the Oxford Junior Show sections for breeding sheep that has caused a bit of concern from Oxford exhibitors. The statement is: “Sheep should be shorn 10 days before the show, and can leave topknots and leggings.” This isn’t something new. This wording has been in the book for at least a couple of years and maybe longer. The statement has only been applied to the slick sheared classes and not the fitted classes and that will be how it is continued to be applied. Remember, the statement doesn’t allow for leaving belly wool for slick sheared animals. We will work to clean-up the wording in the future.
