About us

The Miniature Hereford Breeders Association is a non-profit organization run by a board elected by our members.  The MHBA was formed to bring together breeders to improve the breed, educate the public on the positive aspects of owning Miniature Herefords, as well as promoting them in the show world.  

Being a part of the MHBA means you become part of a large family that shares the same interests.   Every member of the MHBA works hard to improve their genetics and expand the breed as a whole.  Being a part of this organization provides you with a vast number of dedicated individuals with many years of experience in raising, showing and marketing Miniature Herefords.  



The Miniature Hereford breeding program was started by the Largent Family in 1974.  After working on size reduction for several years with efficiency in mind, they were able to offer the first Miniature Herefords for sale on the open market in 1991.

Purebred Miniature Herefords are free of the dwarf gene and are registered with the American Hereford Association (AHA), and just like their larger counterparts, the pedigrees within the AHA trace all the way back to when Hereford cattle first set foot on American soil.  

The MHBA has implemented a rule that all show cattle must have a DNA profile on file with complete parentage verification (dam and sire verification) with the American Hereford Association before show entry deadline.
