Sparks, Grandview CMR Support Hereford Youth
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Lot X in the Grandview CMR “The Big One” Dispersal Sale Nov. 8 brought $15,000 to benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA). Grady Sparks, Birmingham, Ala., placed the winning bid.
William and Jackie Adair along with Walt and Jil McKellar of Grandview CMR, Como, Miss., made the gracious donation with all proceeds to benefit HYFA. Lot X is a heifer pregnancy sired by RST Time’s A Wastin’ 0124 and out of the cow DJB 46B Beth 1L. The recipient cow is due to calve Feb. 25, 2014. This will surely be an amazing heifer calf sired by the 2013 Denver Supreme Champion Hereford and out of a full sister to PW Victor Boomer P606.
“On behalf of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America, we extend our sincere gratitude to Grady Sparks and Grandview CMR for their belief in HYFA’s mission to support leadership and education in Hereford youth,” says Amy Cowan, American Hereford Association director of youth and foundation. “This donation keeps the momentum going as we work to build our ‘Growing a Lasting Legacy’ fund to ensure the sustainability of Junior National Hereford Expos and leadership events.”
The Hereford Youth Foundation of America is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit. Its mission is to support scholarship, education and leadership activities within the Hereford breed.
