Paving the Way
Bob Schaffer of Deer Track Farm in Virginia announces he is leaving his estate to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America to put toward scholarship money for youth. While Bob cherishes Deer Track Farm, he recognizes the farm will not be in production forever; however, its legacy can.
As a result of many years of being involved in state association leadership and spearheading youth programs, it was clear leaving his estate recognizes the importance of education and wants to help Hereford youth pursuing college. After Bob became a purebred Hereford breeder in 1996, he quickly became involved as a board member then as the state association president. The total donation to HYFA developed from the Deer Track Farm estate will be approximately $1 million.
