We also offer free services for those of you that have  large herd and need to "catch up".

Just mail in your forms and note: free services or 50% reduction requested, on the form. Payments for fees can be made via cash, check to AMHA or credit card via pay pal to mulefootpigs@aol.com. (registration forms and transfers of registrations still must be mailed in to us) We have pay pal payment buttons set up on website to streamline the payments HERE
 
Registration processing was delayed the past months (fall 2008) due to many factors. This has been resolved and our current processing time is approx two weeks.
 
We also can register weanlings directly into the new purchasers name if they are a member. Many breeders utilize this as we mail the registrations directly to them upon completion making the process much quicker and easier for the seller. This has been a popluar choice.

How Can You Join?

To join we need a completed application and membership dues for the first year. Visit our forms link for more information and a copy of the application. HERE
 

There are many examples of individual farmers and/or associations who have continued to maintain and breed the last herd of a particular type or breed of livestock because they believed that they had something to offer.

 In many cases such farmers/associations have ensured the survival of that breed until its value has been recognized.
