DNA Policy for Walking Herd Sires
In November 2010 the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board implemented a policy requiring DNA on all future walking herd sires. Therefore, any sire born after Jan. 1, 2011, must have DNA on file at the AHA.
When a breeder tries to register calf out of a sire that was born after Jan. 1, 2001, and there isn’t DNA on file, a DNA error will be returned to the producer.
For more information, download the "DNA Policy for Walking Herd Sires" fact sheet.
If you’re planning to send Christmas greetings this year, consider Hereford-themed Christmas cards available through online ordering. Information about the cards is available at Hereford.org/ChristmasCards.
