American Royal News
Representing Wisconsin as delegates to the 2015 AHA Annual Meeting were Marv Espenscheid, Steve Folkman, Jerry Huth, and Gary Reinke. They enjoyed a Friday evening event at the AHA office where special tribute was made to Craig Huffines, retiring AHA executive vice-president, as well as honoring scholarship winners, CHB trendsetters, and distinguished Hereford breeders. A lively auction to raise money for the Hereford Youth Foundation rounded out the evening.
Saturday morning the AHA annual meeting was held. Fred Larson was recognized as a retiring director from the board. New directors on the board include Pete Atkins, Kyle Perez, and Jim Bellis. In committee reports, CHB volume surpassed 51 million pounds this year, average prices for Hereford cattle rose significantly, and registrations, transfers, and memberships also reached an all time high.
One Wisconsin exhibitor took part in the American Royal Hereford Show. Lauren May, Mineral Point, who exhibited the Supreme Junior Heifer at the Wisconsin State Fair, topped the Junior Hereford heifer show and went on to be named Supreme Champion Heifer of the Junior Show at the American Royal. The heifer was WPF 90W 2020 Romalee 4054, a January heifer sired by Langfords 2020 Vision. Our congratulations go to Lauren for her achievements!
