Region 6: Looking Forward to 2011

The Miniature Hereford business is growing in leaps and bounds here in Region 6. 2010 has been an exciting year. The Texas Junior Hereford Association added Miniature Herefords to their show this year. The Tri-State Fair added Miniature Herefords this year also. 2011 looks to be an exciting year also with San Antonio inviting us to join their show this year.

Recap of our 2010 events this year. Miniature Hereford shows at Houston Livestock Show, Star of Texas Show, Texas Junior Hereford State show, Tri-State Fair and Rodeo, Gillispie County Fair, State Far of Texas. This is six different shows held here in Region 6 this year, plus events at numerous TJLA shows including the Belt Buckle Bonanza and the Fall Classic. Our 2nd Annual Miniature Hereford sale held at the Star of Texas topped $125,000 in sales. This sale continues to grow each year and we are looking for another great sale this coming year in 2011. For info regarding this sale contact Greg Schulz at gschulz@mini-hereford.com

Overall cattle markets in Texas are up this fall, demand for miniature herefords is showing some strength as we go through the fall. 2011 looks to be a great year for both shows and sales. With the addition of San Antonio we will have a full line up of shows.

There are several additional shows under consideration for sanctioning throughout the region. If you have suggestions for a show, please send me an email and lets work on it.

Thanks to all of you for your help and support during this past year. Looking forward to another great year with ya’ll.

Greg Schulz
Region 6 Director
