Officers Spotlight 

MHBA  Vice-President

Pat Wendling

Welcome to Hilltop Herefords in Halstead, Kansas. We live on a family farm that was originally purchased by Pat’s grandfather back in 1927. The farm has seen many things over the years including, old time wheat threshing, raising chickens and also registered mules. We are still raising chickens but our pride is our Horned Herefords.

MHBA Region 2

John Cooper


Spring Trail Ranch began in June 2009 with an unusual event. As I was on top of the new barn's roof, for our four horses,  finishing up installing the galvanized roof panels. My wife Yvonne shot down the hill screaming John, John, where are you ! Immediately I assumed something was wrong and shot up from a crawling position of installing screws into the roof panels and yelled what's wrong !
