Bradshaw Hired as Education and Information Services Coordinator
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Christine (Christy) Bradshaw was hired as the new education and information services coordinator for the American Hereford Association (AHA).
Ultimately, her role will be to develop educational programs to assist Hereford breeders in the understanding of online data submission and best practices for Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR®) participation.
Raised on an Angus and Charolais ranch in Idaho, Christy served as a director of the American-International Junior Charolais Association and was awarded the outstanding junior member award for that organization.
She attended Casper College in Casper, Wyo., and was a member of the livestock judging team before completing her bachelor’s of science degree at Kansas State University (K-State) in May. While in college, she was a member of the K-State Collegiate CattleWomen. She also completed beef quality assurance and beef cattle care training as well as the Masters of Beef Advocacy program.
In addition to her hands-on cattle knowledge, she worked at the plant pathology research lab at K-State where she gained extensive knowledge of DNA testing and molecular biological techniques.
AHA Executive Vice President Craig Huffhines says, “We are excited to have Christy as a member of our Hereford team. She will focus on helping our members utilize the technology available to submit and maintain Hereford data.”
Christy lives in Overland Park, Kan., and started working at AHA headquarters in Kansas City in mid-July.
