This year will be no exception with exciting lots on which to bid. Plenty of premier Hereford genetics will be up for sale, whether it be top-quality cattle, semen or embryo packages. Also past sale highlights of hunting opportunities throughout the U.S. should draw plenty of attention. Again this year, Sullivan Show Supply has donated one of its best items.

The Hereford Research Foundation was established in 2009 as a division of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization to support breed improvement projects outside the scope of the AHA budget. The fund has already supported heterosis research projects like the Harris Ranch study and helped set the groundwork for a new GrowSafe system built at Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb.
