KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A variety of unique items and opportunities will be up for bid August 21 on BuyHereford.com with all proceeds benefiting the Hereford Research Foundation. For the last two years, BuyHereford.com has been hosting annual auctions filled with unique lots to benefit the foundation, and each auction has garnered more than $20,000 to help fund research.
This year will be no exception, with 26 exciting lots on which to bid — everything from advertising opportunities to premier Hereford genetics, whether they be a pick of the herd or semen and embryo packages, to hunting and fishing opportunities all across the U.S. Again, Gallagher has donated state-of-the-art fencing equipment and Sullivan Show Supply has donated one of its best items. Also, Purina is getting in on the action with a voucher to purchase something every cattleman needs: mineral.
“Thanks to the supporters of the Hereford Research Foundation we are able to continue and invest in industry leading research,” says Jack Ward, American Hereford Association chief operating officer and director of breed improvement.
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 the heterosis research projects like the Harris Ranch study and helped set the groundwork for a GrowSafe system built at Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb.
