Report from Region 7
Hello to all. I hope everyones weather has settled down and everyone is in to Summer finally.
Region 7 welcomes 7 new members this year. I look forward to hearing from all of you would like to know if you have any questions.
The MHBA has been awarded two Junior Classes for the 2011 National Western Show. We will have a Junior Heifer Class and a Junior Prospect Steer Class. At the Breed Meeting at the National Western in May we received a report on the cattle shows from 2005 through 2010. The following was from their report. In 2005 MHBA showed more cattle than 5 other breeds and most breeds increased in numbers shown through 2008. In 2008 MHBA showed 175 cattle including prospect and market steers, but dropped our numbers by 31 in 2009 along with all but 3 breeds. Definitely a reaction to the economy, but the good news, we did increase our number this year. With the strong support of our old breeders and the energetic new members I know this trend will continue.
