From the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association
The Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association recently elected Darrell Brown of Stonereath Farm, Neil Howard of Gainesway Farm, and Martha Jane Mulholland of Mulholland Spring, to its board of directors.
Incumbent board members gaining re-election for the 2008-2009 term include Robbie Lyons of Hartwell Farm, Joe Seitz of Brookdale Farm, Mark Taylor of Taylor Made Farm, and Rob Whiteley of Liberation Farm.
The CBA holds elections each February for an alternating six and seven vacant seats on the 13-member board of directors.
The recently elected board members will join Craig Bandoroff of Denali Stud, Kerry Cauthen of Four Star Sales, Mike Cline of Lane’s End Farm, John Stuart of Bluegrass Thoroughbred Services, Dermot Ryan of Ashford Stud, and Bayne Welker of Mill Ridge Farm—all of whom were elected last year.
Based in Lexington, the CBA is a trade organization with more than 250 members. The association’s membership accounts for more than 75% of the annual auction revenue in North America, as either breeder or consignor.
