Advancing the Miniature Hereford Breed Today with Visions of Tomorrow

Welcome to MHBA Online!


MHYF Apparel Store is open!

The new MHYF Director of Grants Diane Jex has started an exciting fundraiser for the Grants Division!!!  She has opened an MHYF store on SquadLocker where you are able to purchase merchandise online.  Every purchase helps the MHYF Grants Division as a small percentage of the sales will come back to help provide grants for programs, events and activities.  Everything is done online and the apparel is shipped directly to you.  The selection at this time includes short and long sleeved t-shirts, crewneck and full zipper sweatshirts, hoodies, and 1/2 zip pullovers. This is a great time to place a Holiday gift order and support our MHYF Grants Division!!!  If you have any questions or need any help, please contact Diane at

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.

Dan Wiley

I live in Central Ohio with my wife, Heather and our two teenage boys, Isaac and Walker. My wife and I both grew up in the city, but spent our weekends in the country with grandparents. Twenty years ago, we left city living behind and bought a small hobby farm. I spend my days as the Service Manager of a commercial HVAC company and then come home to do what I really love on the farm.
