Denver, Colo. - Jan. 30, 2009 - Clint Krebs of Ione, Ore., was elected secretary/treasurer of the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) at the 2009 ASI/National Lamb Feeders Association Convention in San Diego, Calif., on Jan. 24, 2009.
A fourth-generation sheep producer, Krebs, has been running sheep his entire life. He currently runs range ewes as well as operates a lamb feedlot. His only break from sheep was to get his bachelor's degree in agriculture economics from Oregon State University. Before being elected to the office of secretary/treasurer, Krebs represented Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii on the ASI Executive Board. He currently serves as co-chair of the ASI Resource Management Council and is a director for the National Lamb Feeders Association. He has served as past president of the Oregon Sheep Growers Association and has served as past chairman of the Oregon Sheep Commission.
Krebs and his wife, Maureen, have two daughters, Jessica Langley and Shelby, and a son, Cameron.
"With the changes in Washington, we must keep our voices in front of the people who make decisions," said Krebs. "These are exciting times, and I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of the leadership team of ASI."
Other officers elected to the ASI Executive Board at the convention were Glen Fisher of Sonora, Texas, to the office of president and Margaret Soulen Hinson of Weiser, Idaho, to the office of vice president.
ASI is a national trade organization supported by 45 state sheep associations, benefiting the interests of more than 70,500 sheep producers.
