The MHBA was formed to unite Miniature Hereford breeders across the country, promote the Miniature Hereford breed and encourage the success of each individual breeder. Sponsorship of shows helps to inform the vast general public of the presence of Miniature Hereford cattle and teach the many benefits of owning them to the vast population who have “never heard of a Miniature Hereford”.
MHBA is an incorporated non-profit organization led by a board of directors that meet biannually and hold an annual membership meeting. The annual MHBA membership meeting is held in conjunction with the Miniature Hereford Show at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO, each January.
The MHBA sponsors the National Miniature Hereford Show and Auction at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO as well as the Miniature Hereford Shows at the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo in Austin, Texas, and the California State Fair in Sacramento.
MHBA membership entitles members to show at all MHBA sponsored Miniature Hereford shows and participate in all MHBA training seminars.
The officers and board members of the MHBA work together with the Canadian breeders to organize the Canadian Miniature Hereford Breeders Association (CMHBA) to unite breeders and promote the Miniature Hereford breed in Canada.
