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

New NAILE Superintendent named for the NAILE Sheep Department. Kelly O’Brien Secord of California has been named the new Sheep Superintendent for NAILE in 2019. She replaces the Heartland Group who have served in that capacity for the past few years and who have done an excellent job of managing the staff and making exhibitors feel important. We know Kelly will bring that same degree of management and hospitality in her new role at NAILE. Kelly has been managing several livestock shows on the west coast and brings with her a lifetime of experience. Kelly should be a familiar face to Oxford folks as she has been a long time Oxford breeder and exhibitor; she will be a welcome addition to the NAILE crew.
