Have you saved the date for the 2017 American Hereford Association Annual Meeting and Conference?
This year’s American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting and Conference boasts an extended educational forum to cover a variety of topics relevant to today’s progressive Hereford breeder. The educational forum on Friday, Oct. 27, will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center, 1 E. Pershing Rd., Kansas City, MO 64108. An industry trade show will accompany the educational forum and Annual Meeting.
“The Educational sessions during last year’s annual meeting was outstanding,” said Cyndi Van Newkirk, Hereford breeder from Oshkosh, Neb. “We learned several valuable ideas for our operation at every one of them — from learning how to request and download DNA forms online to better understanding social media advertising to hearing about the new EPDs (expected progeny differences). It was a great meeting, and we are looking forward to this year’s event.”
Attendance to the educational sessions and trade show is free for all AHA members and guests. This is a can’t-miss opportunity for Hereford breeders and enthusiasts to network and to gain more industry knowledge.
The Annual Meeting and Conference will continue Friday evening at the Hereford Honorees Reception beginning at 7 p.m. at The Gallery in downtown Kansas City. Hall of Fame and Merit recipients, National Junior Hereford Association Fed Steer Shootout participants, Golden and Century Award winners, Certified Hereford Beef partners and NJHA scholarship winners will be recognized for outstanding achievements.
The Annual Meeting and Conference will conclude Saturday morning after the Annual Membership Meeting where three new board members will be elected and Terri Barber, Channing, Texas; Dave Bielema, Ada, Mich.; and Joe Van Newkirk, Oshkosh, Neb.; will retire from their positions on the board of directors.
