About the Campaign

To celebrate 25 years, it is only fitting to look ahead to the next 25 and sustaining the legacy of the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). To commemorate this milestone, the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) is offering special Grand Drive to 25 donor packages to all of our valued partners who make up the history and future of the JNHE.

25 years of the JNHE would not be possible without our circle of donors and HYFA tips our hats to each and every supporter since the first show in Tulsa, Okla., in 2000. Come be a part of growing the lasting legacy of the JNHE. One year, two, three, four and five year packages are available and may be customized to fit each donor. Please contact HYFA today to learn about The Grand Drive to 25 and pledge your annual support.

Kicking Off the Campaign

The National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) kicked off the fundraising for the “Grand Daddy of ‘Em All,” the 25th Anniversary Junior National Hereford Expo, during the Ladies of the Royal Sale, by selling the iconic lot one street sign. Hoffman Ranch, Thedford, Neb., and Stellpflug Cattle Co., LLC, Glenrock, Wyo., joined together to begin the Grand Drive to 25 fundraising campaign.

Lot one topped the sale at an impressive $25,000, with the partners choosing to double down on their support for a total commitment of $50,000 over two years, securing the sponsorship in the polled female show at the JNHE. The 2024 JNHE will be held in Grand Island, Neb., July 6-12, and we tip our hats to these generous donors.
