Region 5

Happy Spring to Everyone!
Jami Bingham, Region 5 Director
I’m not sure where the last few months have gone, but I hope everyone’s calving season is off to a great start. I wanted to extend congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated at the National Western in January. Quite a few members from Region 5 participated either as an exhibitor or spectator, and I was glad to see you there. I know it involves a lot of travel and commitment and hope everyone enjoyed themselves. I wanted to extend a special THANK YOU to all the Region 5 members who participated with some very generous bids during the auction at the MHBA banquet. Those donations, as well as many others from other region members, helped raise quite a bit of money for the MHBA. Watching everyone come together and have a great time makes me very proud to be a part of this association.
I have talked with the Iowa State Fair and they will be allowing MHBA members to show again this year, although it will still not be an MHBA exclusive show. I hope everyone can attend and continue a great representation for the Miniature Hereford breed.
Up and coming news involves a great effort from Brent and Shelley White as well as Steve and Judy Splitt in speaking with the Iowa Beef Council and they will be allowing the MHBA to contribute in the Iowa Beef Expo in February 2013. We are excited about this new endeavor and updates will be provided as it progresses.
Thank you to everyone for all their hard work and dedication, and as always please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
