Welcome to the online home of the OBA!

     

The Oberhasli Breeders of America (OBA) club was organized in 1976 in order to preserve, promote and develop the Oberhasli breed. Since the club was formed, it has been successful in raising awareness about the attributes of this breed and establishing programs and tools for Oberhasli breeders to utilize towards improving and “showing off” their animals. The OBA offers the following services and programs to its membership:

 
  1. All-American Program
  2. Premier Youth Competition
  3. Comprehensive and up-to-date website
  4. Newsletter
  5. Swiss Belle Milk Production Recognition
  6. A voice for the breeders!
