Contribute to Growing a Lasting Legacy

The Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is powered by the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and the Growing a Lasting Legacy Campaign. Since the start of the campaign, the legacy fund has grown to close to $1.5 million, ensuring a sustainable future for the flagship event. Your sponsorship supports one of the Hereford breed’s greatest events of the year. Voted “Best in the Barns” and the most fun junior national, this summer spectacular provides an opportunity for competition of both junior members and their cattle projects, along with plenty of events for the entire family.

In the last decade, we have seen monumental growth topping the charts in 2018 with 1,840 Hereford entries and 925 Hereford youth. Even amidst a pandemic, the JNHE still experienced strong numbers with 1,385 entries showcased by 800 junior exhibitors from 40 states in 2021.

We look forwarding to matching the 2018 numbers as we head back to Louisville this summer for “Banners in the Bluegrass.” More than 3,000 spectators will be on hand at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center and we are working to ensure a successful show for all in attendance. Your financial support is vital in making this an unforgettable learning experience for junior members and your support is appreciated as we build a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy the Junior National Hereford Expo.
