Treasury Report

Happy New Year to all. I hope this year brings you much success and enjoyment with your cattle.
At this deadline I am still waiting for a few items to close out the 2012 year. I will have that final report to present at the 2013 Meeting at the Banquet on January 26 during the National Western Show. It will then be available on our new website and printed in the next issue of this magazine. But the picture is nearly complete so I can make a few comments.
We ended 2012 having again spent more than we took in – but less than in past years. I am hopeful that the dues increase – the first in our history – will help that picture. Membership retention and growth will be very important for this year. We have made wonderful strides each of the past four years and are hopeful that will continue. The popularity of this breed continues, showing strong growth as more people are introduced to our cattle – mainly at shows, and have the vision of how these animals can fill a need in their lives.
We still need to develop more income in advertising for our Miniture Hereford News. And any Fund Raising ideas to increase Sponsorships both to the MHBA and the Youth Foundation would be most welcome. Your Board continues to work hard for the strength and growth of the Association and always welcomes your participation and ideas.

Please Sponsor MHBA!

MHBA has dramatically increased the number of shows sponsor ed. While a relatively small number of members take on the expense and time involved to show their animals, shows remain the #1 place to attract potential new breeders and members – and customers for all members, those who show and whose who don’t. Thus Shows are
our major expense – and to increase the number of shows available to our members, Sponsorships become really vital. Help us grow and introduce the Miniature Herefords to more and more new breeders.
