ARIZONA HEREFORD ASSOCIATION HISTORY
The Arizona Hereford Association was established in 1933 for the purpose of promoting the Hereford Breed. The first President of the Association was Tom Heady. Our Association is grateful to Mr. Heady and those fine men who followed him and served as officers of this organization over the past 82 years. A complete list of all who served as President of this Association is included in our History.
Today our Mission remains the same, to promote the Hereford breed. Our breeders offer cattle to both commercial and registered operations that show strong fertility, manageable birth weights, mothering ability, hardiness, gentle temperament and efficient feed conversion. The Hereford Breed is known as the “Efficiency” Breed. Hereford cattle have always excelled in tenderness, juiciness and palatability. For over 100 years they have maintained their superiority in feed conversion and cost of gain.
During the history of this Association, there have been 40 annual Bull Sales offering quality genetics to cattlemen across the western United States. In addition, many Junior Field Days were conducted at several outstanding ranches across the State of Arizona.
We welcome all to join our Association and assist us in our promotion of the Hereford Breed.
