2017 MHBA ELECTION

Candidates

MHBA President
     1. Jeff Bash     Bash

Hello fellow cattlemen,

 I have been honored by my fellow breeders with the nomination for the presidency of our Miniature Hereford Breeders Association. My name is Jeff Bash of Old School Genetics in south central Nebraska. I have been in the seedstock business for over 37 years. I was introduced to the miniature Hereford breed by Steve and Judy Splitt.  That led to my first purchase of Miss Kitty in 2009. This was the starting point of my herd and my excitement of being a miniature Hereford breeder.  My cattle story started in 4-H, in fact, my first 4-H market beef was a Hereford sired steer from my grandfathers farm.  My Dad was very involved in helping the 4-H program grow in our county. He started the first livestock auction and continued it for over 60 years. Our family was also part of the formation of the first commercial feedlot operations in Harlan Nebraska 47 years ago. With The roots my family established, it has allowed me to continue to actively participate in the livestock sector.  A few of my volunteer duties have included, serving on the Nebraska Cattlemen Board of Directors as the seedstock chairman. I have been a part of the Nebraska Cattlemen Classic Board of Directors for 25 years. It is a 12 breed show and sale that has grown to include a Jr show that was over 600 head this year. It includes an all-beef judging contest for ages from 4-H to college from all over the country.  Being President of this event has showed me that if 12 breeds can find common ground anything is possible if everybody works together. This year I was instrumental in adding a miniature Hereford class to our Jr show.  It was exciting to see how many of the classic Herefords breeders were interested in becoming mini owners. In my years, I have shown many breeds across the US at the major shows.  My knowledge of putting on five Jr National shows in Nebraska and leading youth in 4-H groups in our state for 37 years has shown me the value of leading our youth to become valuable producers of today and tomorrow. The youth is the future of continued growth of our breed and organization. The experience and knowledge I have gained through working with next generation of breeders and being on Cattlemens boards is something I would bring to the table as your next president of MHBA. I have seen other breeds grow and become great, while others struggled because of the breed not working together.  I feel our breed has progressed well to date and is poised for a great future that I would like to help shape.  With great growth comes challenges that I actively would be engaged in as your President to bring together the many diverse talents of the breeders currently in our association.  Collectively, I will work to develop and grow marketing of our breed and association through the many social media options that technology has presented to us.  Utilizing the gifted people already invested in the breed to help our organization move to the forefront of the cattle industry.  I will actively move forward with this platform.

1.       Developing and moving into new markets for our beef. 

2.       Stronger use of social media for marketing.

3.       Continue to strengthen and expand our youth program to be best in industry.

4.       Find new methods of revenue generation for our association without increasing fees.

5.       Creative marketing to help increase the demand to be part of our association.

6.       Utilize the talents and connections of our organization to collectively work together to strengthen it.

Dad always said if youth are involved in your plans they will make your future bright. I believe we have excellent volunteers in many positions that have brought us this far and I would like to thank many of you for a job well done! I would certainly like to be a part of the next step. Please consider this my sincere request to get out and vote.  I would appreciate your vote to allow me to help MHBA grow.  Thank you for your consideration.  Jeff Bash

2. Justin GradyJustin1JustinJustin

Hello MHBA Members— 

My name is Justin Grady and I am currently serving as President of the Miniature Hereford Breeder’s Association and am seeking your vote for re-election. 

I was born and raised on a family farm, raising cattle & hogs, near Fort Dodge, Iowa. I also own & have operated a successful security/alarm business for 27 years.  My family and I own and operate J bar W Cattle Company in Elizabeth, Colorado. We started our herd in 1997 with the purchase of 2 bred cows and a bull.  Through selective breeding and purchase of out-cross bulls, we have developed the herd of 80 head we have today.  

I have been a member of the MHBA since it originated in 1999.  My experience includes serving as President, Vice-President, Show Committee Chairman, Co-Superintendent & Sale Manager for the National Western and Show Superintendent for the Kansas City Royal and Nebraska State Fair.  I was instrumental and assisted with the development of the first Miniature Hereford show at the Iowa State Fair & the American Royal.   I have been actively involved with our shows across the nation to include all 18 years at the National Western in Denver, Colorado, the Houston Livestock Show, the Star of Texas Show in Austin, the American Royal in Kansas City, the Tri-State Fair in Amarillo, the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, and the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island. I’m very proud of facilitating the first Junior Nationals for the Miniature Herefords held in Denver 2014.   

I will always have a deep passion and vested interest in these cattle. My goals haven’t changed over the years as I continue to strive to produce the highest quality cattle possible and maintain the highest level of integrity for our association.   As your president, I am extremely proud to have been a part of the MHBA team that consists of all breeders; those who show and those who don’t. With this team, we have created an amazing growth of the MHBA and the quality of our Miniature Herefords. As with any association, we have hurdles to overcome and as an association I believe we can conquer these hurdles.  I will continue to work diligently to maintain the standard of excellence we have achieved and will continue to carry the association in a united and positive direction. My goals are not limited to shows; I want to continue to promote the marketing of our beef. I am always open for discussion and encourage new ideas on how to improve or association. 

I am humbled and fortunate to have met and spoken with numerous people around the world that have a shared passion for the Miniature Hereford breed. This is an amazing group of people and I am proud to call them all friends. 

I want to personally thank the membership, our current and past members of the Executive Board and Regional Directors for their time, sacrifice & dedication to this cause.  I hope you see, as I do, how your efforts have made tremendous strides in the popularity and respect of the Miniature Hereford in the cattle industry.   

As President– my goals include the following:  

1) Continue to expand and improve our Junior programs and help our Junior breeders 

2) Encourage greater member participation in shows and expressing their ideas and concerns 

3) Develop programs for greater marketing strategies for the large or small breeding program 

4) To gain optimum benefit of  shows to increase public awareness and education 

5) Promote Miniature Herefords as a specialty, choice beef product and the benefits of raising these cattle 

I encourage all of you to please take time out of your busy schedules to cast your vote.

I want to thank you & appreciate your time, consideration & support!

 Justin Grady

MHBA Secretary

1. Tammy Wicks
2. Charlotte Williamscaw-election2017

My name is Charlotte Williams and I am asking for your vote to re-elect me as Secretary for the Miniature Hereford Breeders Association. I have been MHBA Secretary since 2008 and have enjoyed participating in the rapid growth of our breed across the country and the world.

Along with other board members, I continue to fine-tune sound procedures for the Secretarial position for maintaining membership records, including the main databases and website information, managing the annual election, maintaining board minutes and records, responding to inquiries from members and the public, and increasing communication through the magazine, website, and direct contact. I plan to document these procedures so they can be continued easily by future Secretaries and also to work with the board as we expand services to our membership and welcome ideas from everyone. 

My husband, Steve, and I are engineers and own an industrial construction company, SERCO, in Borger, Texas. A few years ago, I moved to Pagosa Springs, Colorado to be closer to my parents. Most of our herd of Miniature Herefords are here with me, although I travel back to Texas often to see my family and to participate in shows there. At about the same time I began to reduce my contract work as an engineer, which fortunately coincided with an increase in the time it takes to work for the MHBA. Our membership has increased since 2008 at more than 10% each year, so the time required has also gone up.

We have owned Miniature Herefords for almost eighteen years and have been showing them since 2006. We began as a beef operation and continue to sell sides of beef across three states, but have been fortunate enough in our show experiences to be able to successfully sell show cattle as well.

Over the years as MHBA Secretary it has been my pleasure to see our breed grow from an exotic, limited breed to dominating as a major force at some of the most significant stock shows in the country. As co-superintendent with Justin Grady at the largest Miniature Hereford show in the country in Denver, CO, we have watched our numbers grow until we had over 400 entries this year, with the largest numbers of any breed except the Angus. Similarly this year at the Amarillo, TX show where I am superintendent, we had almost 100 entries, second only to the Angus again. And I know our breed is growing like this all across the country.

We have also seen tremendous growth in our youth programs. Junior shows, particularly in Texas and Iowa, have opened doors to our young people which were not available less than a decade ago. And since Justin and I held the first Miniature Hereford Jr. National show in Denver four years ago it has become established as a premier MHBA offering.

Overall, it is an exciting time to own Miniature Herefords. I hope your experience has been as wonderful as mine, and I hope you will vote for me and allow me to continue to serve.

Region 2 Director

1. John Cooper

NC STATE FAIR 2016 STR ELMO-Cooper

We purchased out first Mini Herefords in 2009 with four heifers and a bull, and currently are running a herd of fifty two. Since 2010 we organized the mini show at the NC State Fair and for the last five years have our own Miniature Herford’s show that continues to slowly grow with our breeds ever increasing  popularity. I look forward to helping in any way possible.

Region 5 Director

1. Karly Biddle377423_519854631360565_1327199926_n[1] (2)-Biddle

Hello,

For those who don’t know me, my name is Karly Biddle and I am from Walcott, IA. I have been nominated as the Region 5 director and the MHYF Secretary and Treasurer.  I along with my family have been running Double K Mini Herefords since 2012. We started out raising big Herefords in 2003 and my senior year of high school we purchased our first mini cow/calf pair and the rest is history. We have grown to over 30 head total and growing. I was also honored to be crowned the first National Miniature Hereford Queen.

I believe that I would be a perfect fit as a region director and also the MHYF Secretary/Treasurer. I am very involved within my region and I try to stay in contact with everyone surrounding us. I have been a state director for the Iowa Junior Hereford Association.  I am currently the secretary for Western Illinois University Horticulture Club and the Ag Vocators.

The reasons I would love to be elected to the position of Region 5 director and also the MHYF Secretary/Treasurer is because I have become very passionate when it comes to the minis. I am willing to help out at any show from passing out ribbons to helping in the ring to helping back in the barns. As Region 5 director I would keep everyone up to date with what is going on within the region and upcoming shows within the region. If I were elected to Region 5 director, I would love to create a regional show. This in hope would spark something in the other regions to follow suit. As far as the MHYF position I am up for, I would love to continue to be involved with the youth foundation and keep everyone in the breed involved and update on what all of the youth are doing and their achievements in the ring.

I would like to personally thank everyone in advance for their consideration and if I am elected I look forward to what the future holds and I hope to continue to try and keep improving this wonderful breed.

Thank you,

Karly Biddle

2. Brent White

I wanted to introduce myself I am Brent White and it has been my pleasure to serve as Region 5 Director for the last three years.  It has been very exciting to see the growth in the bred and a great pleasure to welcome many new members within the region and nationally.  I have been involved with cattle all my life and I am eager to continue to serve as the Region 5 Director.

I reside in Southeastern Iowa with my wife Shelley and our two children Jenna & Layne.  I have a true passion for cattle, I really feel in love with the Miniature Herefords in 2009 and have been on fire for them ever since.  I have been committed to promoting our breed and thoroughly enjoy visiting with current & potential breeders throughout the country.  My family and I have blessed to participate in numerous shows across the country and have enjoyed watching the breed explode. 

During my last three years, we have added several shows and marketing opportunities within the region.  I currently serve on the Board for the Iowa Beef Breeds Council representing the Miniature Hereford breed.  This is a group of all breeds in the state of Iowa which allows our youth to participate in 50+ shows in Iowa throughout the year.  I was instrumental in establishing the first MHBA Central National Miniature Hereford sale in February 2014.  Cattle sold were from several neighboring states to include NE & IN, this sale has been a true success.  I have also played a role in the further development of Miniature Hereford Jr. Nationals, this is a great venue for our youth to learn and compete. 

Our future is bright with the Juniors and the Miniature Hereford bred.  I would be pleased to be the Representative for Region 5 and look forward to meeting many of you and helping you promote your cattle.  You are welcome to contact me with any further questions or concerns at 641 777-8821. 

 

 Region 8 Director

1. Jerry DuValJerry bio pic-DuVal

Greetings Region 8 members! For those who may not know me, my name is Jerry DuVal and I am running for re-election to the position of MHBA Region 8 Director. I currently reside with my wife, Cynthia, and daughter, Alyssa, at my family’s century farm in the Cascade Foothills of Silverton, Oregon. Here, we own and operate 350 acres of grass seed fields and pasture as well as our herd of registered Miniature Herefords. My family has been involved with standard Herefords since the early 1960s, becoming members of the American Hereford Association in the late ‘80s. After many years of research, we finally made the wise management decision and switched to Minis fourteen years ago. Since then, we have advanced our comprehensive breeding program to focus on breeding, market, and show stock. In addition to working with the Minis, I am the Vice-President of our local FFA Alumni, Chairman of the Silverton FFA Scholarship Committee, the Secretary of the Cascade Foothills Grass Seed Growers Association, as well as a member of several local agricultural cooperatives.      I have been fortunate to serve as your current MHBA Region 8 Director and I would be honored to have the opportunity to continue representing the Pacific Northwest in our Association. Over this time, I have had the pleasure of getting to know most of you and hopefully have been of assistance whenever possible! I have met with several new breeders in our Region and am always willing to assist breeders of all operation sizes and ranching experience via phone, email, and/or ranch visits.      My goal as Director has been and will continue to be: to continue to support our current cattle shows within the Region, to obtain additional MHBA show sponsorship, as well as to branch out to new exhibition locations. Although the exhibition portion of the Miniature Hereford world is invaluable, especially for increasing public awareness of the breed, we also recognize the vast importance of the beef segment within the industry. The quantity of grower/finisher Mini operations within Region 8 has experienced a significant boom in the recent years.  As such, I am actively establishing a network of beef producers to assist in connecting them with the consumer. I feel that effective communication between the MHBA Board, Region Directors, and its members is the key to maintaining a successful organization. I am always willing to listen to all issues, obtain input from every individual involved, explore alternatives, and represent the viewpoints of the Region 8 members. I believe that, through cooperation and a functioning network system, we can continue to expand the Mini industry here in the Pacific Northwest.      I would greatly appreciate your continued support. Thank you!

MHYF President

Daydree Dopps is currently serving as President of the Miniature Hereford Youth Foundation.  She has enjoyed the work so far and is looking forward to continuing service to the Foundation.  Daydree has an interest in continuing to improve and expand the presence of the Foundation within the breed and across the country.   Daydree feels that the Miniature Hereford breed is one of if not the hottest upcoming breed in the cattle industry.   She, in conjunction with the rest of the Board, is in the process of developing a Youth Foundation Board as well as an expanded role and increased support for the queen.  She has worked closely with, Vice-President Shelley White, to steadily improve and enlarge the Jr. National Show that is held each summer.

Daydree is married to Dr. Brian Dopps, DC and they have three daughters, Kodie, 16, Karsen, 14, and Kanyen, 11.  Together with her father, Steve Sanders and close friend, Darrin Barbour, the family owns and operates KLD Miniature Herefords, LLC.  That has been an invaluable experience for all members, but has been especially wonderful for Daydree.  The ability to be in the cattle business with not only those that are dear to her heart but also to give her daughters various skills, like leadership, independence and a knowledge of the breed, has been the greatest reward.  She looks forward to continuing the growth of this partnership in the coming years.

Daydree is excited to continue serving on behalf of the Miniature Hereford Youth Foundation and asks for your continued support and your vote.  Thank You.

2. Cynthia DuVal

????????????????????????????????????

A big hello to all our MHBA members!  My name is Cynthia DuVal.  Together, my husband and I are the owner/operators of DuVal Farms.  Here we manage over 350 acres of field crops (primarily grass seed) and roughly 80 head of registered Miniature Herefords.  We have been involved with the Miniature Hereford breed for 14 years and we enjoy having the chance to meet everyone at the shows we attend—including Denver!
I am writing this brief bio to express my appreciation for being nominated for the MHYF and to campaign for your support as the next MHYF Secretary/Treasurer.  I have had the honor of serving the Miniature Hereford community as a founding member of the Miniature Hereford Youth Foundation as well as the 2011-2016 MHYF Director of Scholarships.  During my tenure as the Director of Scholarships, we raised over $15,000 and were able to provide 15 separate scholarships.
We all realize the importance of promoting youth involvement in the Miniature Hereford breed, but at the same time, we also need to have a strong Foundation to assist with funding youth development activities (including education, grants, and Jr. shows) and annual scholarships.  I believe that I have a lot to offer and would love to have the opportunity to continue serving the MHYF and all Miniature Hereford breeders.  With over 40 years experience as a small business owner and 35 years as the CFO of DuVal Farms, I have a strong business mind and comprehend the importance of detailed recordkeeping.  Math was actually my favorite subject in school!  Additionally, since the MHYF is a 501(c)3, there are some special financial considerations, above the typical business finances, with which a strong MHYF Secretary/Treasurer should be familiar.  In terms of secretarial experience, I am well-versed in proper note taking, minute formats and requirements, and hard-copy and digital formal communication methods.
If elected to serve as your MHYF Secretary/Treasurer, I will strive to strengthen the finances of our Foundation.  Thank you for your consideration!

MHBA sanctions and sponsors numerous Miniature Hereford Livestock shows across the USA including the National Western Livestock Show and Rodeo in Denver, the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, the American Royal in Kansas City and many more.  Over the past ten years, shows have been the most rewarding method of introducing the breed to the public for the first time, and thus encouraging increased sales.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you have an enjoyable experience on our website!

 

Why Miniature Herefords?

That is a very good question.  Why not?

Miniature Herefords have a dedicated following in their breeders and admirers.  The reasons range from purely scientific to a simple “I just LIKE ’em!”  For the record, we’ll provde a few reasons why you, too, should become involved with Mini Herefords:

 

  • Smaller size means less feed needed.  Face it.  Feed today is expensive!  Pasture is expensive!  Miniature Herefords, weighing roughly half what the standard-size Herefords weigh, eat roughly half as well!
  • Smaller size means less mess.  Mini cattle do much less harm to the environment than their larger counterparts.  From disturbing the ground far less for each foot-fall, to simply ranging more because they carry less weight – your pastures will love the Minis!  Especially the spots around the water trough.
  • Smaller size means shorter muscle length.  While this theory is to-date unproven scientifically, there are many advocates of Miniature Hereford beef who believe the meat is more tender because of the shorter muscle length.  Also, because the animal’s muscles need not be toned enough to carry 2,000 lbs around all day, they tend to be far more tender.  Consider the average Mini Hereford weighs in at 700 or 1,000 lbs, and you might say the meat is twice as tender!
  • Smaller size means more appropriate steak size.  A lot of the steaks you see today would completely cover a normal dinnerplate!  Where would you squeeze in your baked potato?  Consider the recomended serving size for meat, and a Mini Hereford steak is right on the money – with a little extra just ‘cuz.
  • Smaller size means smaller amounts of meat off of one animal.  Miniature Herefords are just right for an average family to raise, feeding exactly what they wish to feed, slaughter, and eat in the recommended shelf life of the meat.
  • Smaller size means they’re better for kids.  Calves are born ranging from 30 to 50 pounds.  Compare that to standard-size cattle today!  Children as young as 5 and 6 are capable of showing calves and steers!
  • Smaller size means they’re much more docile.  A standard-size cow knows full well she’s got you out muscled.  While a Mini cow is still plenty strong, normally they just don’t try to get away with nearly as much – except when it comes to finding the treats in your bucket!
So, are you convinced?

  1. This year I will start looking for a new sire to put on my cows, but I’m pretty new to the mini Hereford business. My stock is of Point of Rocks (LS) and LC Ozark Mtn breeding. Could someone recommend some bloodlines that would be recognized throughout the community and add value? Thanks

    1. We have 3 registered bull calves out of JW’s Megabucks. Born Nov./Dec. 2015. All 3 will make good herd sires. $1500 each Stillwater, OK 918-348-5162

    2. Hello,

      Kind of a late reply but I just joined this organization. Karl Falster of Falster farms located in East Texas is an outstanding breeder. I have purchased 4 heifers from him, one recently that just might end up as a Guinness world record. You can make contact with him at his web site falsterfarm.com. Best of luck in your breeding.

    3. I have an Oct. 13, 2013 “Two Dot” reg. # 43435285. His papers have been updated to remove the polled designation, as he is horned. Most important, he has sired heifer and steer grand and reserve champions at Denver(including 2017), Houston 3x for a total of 11, combined. Works best on soggy females, as he is the classic show steer looker. He is for lease or sale. We have over 20 of his heifers to breed this year and I want to outcross.

    4. I have a Bull I’m looking at getting rid of. Real gentle, produces small calves. I was looking for $3000.00. He’s about 4 years old. I could send his pedigree. Naturally polled.

    5. I have a registered 2 year old bull that is ready for cows and would be great on heifers as well. He’is out of show quality bloodlines from J Bar W and Salt Creek. We are located eastern Colorado and can send pictures if interested. Asking $2500. 303-818-6766

    6. I have a registered 2 year old bull that is ready for cows and would be great on heifers as well. He’is out of show quality bloodlines from J Bar W and Salt Creek. We are located eastern Colorado and can send pictures if interested. Asking $2500. 303-818-6766

    1. Hi, I’m a rancher in Brazil and I would like to know more about mini Herefords. I’m interested about the possibilities concerning feed efficiency and meat tenderness in mini cattle breeds. If you could send me am e-mail to discuss more about I would appreciate.

      1. Hi- Did anyone ever respond to your request? You are welcome to contact me at cawmomcow@hotmail.com if you like. You may also look at our website at http://www.ww-ranch.com where some of your questions may be answered.
        Just in general, Miniature Herefords are extremely efficient feed converters. All the beef I have raised to eat have been tender, too. I have heard that a study was done that indicated Miniature Hereford beef tends to be more tender because of shorter muscle fibers. I’m a believer!

  6. I live in northeast Ohio and I am going to be traveling to the Columbus area in September. Looking for anybody in that route that has some mini’s that we can come look at. We are looking to change our herd from full size to mini. Please let me know if anyone has time to show us there cows.

  7. Hello, my husband and I are interested in a heifer and a bull. We have a 4 yr old who has been showing chickens lately and we would like to upgrade him to something larger for next years fair season, these mini’s would be awesome seeing he wants a cow but being so small I was worried. My husband showed heifers throughout school so we have plenty of experience there. Do any of y’all have a website we would be able to see our options? If so please reply we would love to start this new journey in life 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Perhaps you should check out the breeder websites. They can be found under the “Membership” tab, either under “MHBA Member Map’ where you can click and drag to find breeders’ contact information (just click on the red pins for that info) or go to the “Member Spreadsheet” under column K for clickable links to websites.

  8. any good websites on care, can they be shipped to Alaska? We have a smaller plot of land and have goats and chickens but would love a cow but they get huge and cost loads

    1. Actually, this website has some good resources. I especially recommend that you check out “How-To’s”, “FAQ”, and “Health” under the “News/FAQ” tab. My best suggestion for learning about care of beef cattle is Heather Smith Thomas’s “Raising Beef Cattle” book. It is a great overview of cattle care.

      Miniature Herefords can be shipped anywhere in the world – depending on how much you have to spend! But for your situation, there are not currently any breeders in Alaska, so you would need to arrange with someone from the lower 48 to ship up there. Possibly a less expensive/easier option for you would be to buy embryos to put in standard sized cows. Shipping embryos is easy and the recipient cows can be purchased at a sale barn.

    1. Hi Mark, we have sold and delivered many mini’s in Florida. We are located in North Carolina. John Cooper, Springtrailranch.com.

    1. Miniature Herefords will be at the Tulsa State Fair on September 29 through October 2, 2016.
      In the future, you can find this information a few different ways. First, it is listed at the top of this home page for the MHBA.
      If it is not there, you can go to the “Events” tab and scroll through the calendar to find it.
      Finally, you can always go to their website at http://www.tulsastatefair.com to get all the information available about that show.

  18. I’m looking to purchase a few mini hereford heifers or young cows and a bull, I’m in northeast Alabama so I was hoping to find someone relatively close that sells them. I’m not really familiar with the genetics of these so any information on what I should be looking for would be really appreciated. I’m mainly just wanting them to have on the farm for the kids to learn about but I also want good genetics so we wouldn’t have problems selling calves later.

  19. I am seeking out the Miniature Hereford breed and trying to decide if this is the way to go. I love herefords and want to stay with that, just dont know if minis are the way to go. I am limited on grazing acreage at the moment, which is why I am looking in to the minis. I mainly will focus on beef production and minimal showings. I appreciate all the help and advice. Thanks.

  20. I am interested in getting my 10 year old son started showing calves and thinking about a mini Hereford. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good quality breeder that produces top show calves. We have been showing hogs but I grew up showing Herefords and love showing cattle and ready to move my son up. We are very competitive family and want the best!
