The American Ostrich Association (AOA) founded in 1988, is member driven and is the recognized national trade association for the American Ostrich Industry. With a membership consisting of many small and mid-size ranchers, we have a collective voice that is part of any national dialogue concerning livestock and a seat at that table for discussion. Our members have created an industry with consistent growth, a bright future, quality products and a desire to leave a lasting legacy.
The AOA’s goal is to always be the premier organization that defines, implements and supports the highest quality Standards for American Ostrich products to ensure the continuing long-term growth of the industry.
The Association obligates each of its members to be committed to this goal and to act with integrity within the industry.
