What is NAEBA?
The North American Elk Breeders Association, or NAEBA, is a non-profit organization, founded to promote and protect the elk farming and ranching industry. The primary goal of the association is to educate its members and the general public about the rewards and opportunities that are available through participation in the industry as a legitimate diversified agricultural pursuit. NAEBA is recognized by federal authorities as the voice of the industry, and enjoys mutually benefiting association with the Federal Farm Bureau, as well as Allied Industry Status in the United States Animal Health Association.
The North American Elk Breeders Association serves its members in many ways, including the maintenance of a purebred elk registry, publication of a bi-monthly full-color journal that addresses all aspects of the elk industry, publication of newsletters to keep members informed of pertinent situations and issues affecting the elk industry, and education of its members in proper management and breeding practices. NAEBA holds an annual convention in late summer where the membership meets to discuss issues of mutual interest, learn the latest animal health and herd management techniques, and meet others interested in the husbandry of these magnificent animals.
