Fall is rapidly approaching here in Colorado and I’m sure everyone’s summer has gone way too fast.
With everyone’s busy summer, we didn’t have any changes for the MHBA. Planning & discussion continues with the development of the Junior program. We are continuing to develop some ideas for marketing Miniature Hereford Cattle as well as the beef aspect of the breed. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please contact your Regional Director or any Executive Board Member.
I also want to alert all of you to a rule change by the American Hereford Association that concerns registration of bulls. The new rule reads as follows:
*All Hereford bulls born after January 1, 2011 are required to be DNA typed at the official AHA DNA laboratory before their progeny can be registered.*
Please keep this in mind, as it will impact registration of calves in the future. Please contact the AHA for any questions or information.
Fall also brings a busy show season for many MHBA breeders. Hope all of you will consider entering and/or attending one of the upcoming shows. These shows provide an avenue of exposure and marketing for the Miniature Hereford Breed. Please see the “Upcoming Events” listing in this magazine for a complete schedule and details.
As always, please feel free to contact me for any information, questions, your suggestions or concerns.
