All proceeds from the Foundation 1 Store support the Hereford Youth Foundation of America. With pillars supporting scholarship, education, leadership and research the next generation will lead our industry with generous support from our sponsors.
These four pillars are the motivation behind all fundraising efforts, creating and developing growth in the next generation of Hereford breeders and cultivating leaders who will be instruments in next steps in research for the industry.
Dedicated to Hereford youth and impacting the mission of HYFA tonight in Reno!
Brumley Farms, Orovada, Nev., has stepped up once again offering an elite female to support future breed leaders. Tonight kicks off the Hereford Season of Giving with half of the proceeds from this female going towards the annual campaign.
The National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) is the backbone of many Hereford research efforts and is essential for driving the breed forward. The program has been the cornerstone for developing new selection tools, validating the efficacy of genomic tools and more. “The accuracy of the predictions is so much more powerful when you have multiple sire progeny observations in large contemporary groups in a true progeny test like this one, compared to onetime snapshots collected in a performance bull test,” explains Shane Bedwell, American Hereford Association director of breed improvement and chief operating officer.
With these partners, the Hereford Season of Giving is aiming to raise $150,000. Gifts adding up to $75,000 made possible by the Johnny Winston Family, the National Hereford Women, Cottonwood Springs Farm, Bar One Ranch and Grimmel Schaake Cattle Co., have been laid under the tree, and now we need donors to match this number so the foundation can unwrap these gifts.
All going towards the mission of scholarship, leadership, education and research, the Hereford Season of Giving happens Dec. 4-8, 2023. Give during that week and you will be entered into a drawing for a custom American Hereford Association branded chute from Priefert.
"The change starts with you," Tar Tut, NJHA Chairman.
Will you be a part of the change that impacts Hereford juniors for the future and creates opportunities and success for them for years to come? By giving during the Hereford Season of Giving, each gift, big and small will be the change needed to propel the foundation and Hereford youth forward.
