Election Results

It takes many dedicated people to make an organization as large as ours operate smoothly.  The Officers, Board members and volunteers work together to successfully improve the Miniature Hereford Breeders Association and the Miniature Hereford Youth Foundation move the Miniature Hereford breed forward into the future. These dedicated people do this job without fanfare but with extreme dedication and passion. We would like to send a thank you out to these special people for all of their hard work.

The MHBA and MHYF Boards would like to at this time acknowledge our retiring Board members in the MHBA. Retiring Vice-President, Pat Wendling, Region 4 Director, Kim Kiser and Region 7 Director, Joe Bottini.   We would also like to acknowledge our retiring MHYF Treasurer, Terrie Potter.  Words cannot express our appreciation for your dedication and years of service! Thank you!!!

We would also like to welcome the new and returning members of our Boards.  Our 2022-2024 MHBA Vice-President Kurt Hoban, 2022-2024 MHBA Treasurer Craig DeHaan, 2022-2025 Region 1 Director Bill Moreton, 2022-2025 Region 4 Director Amanda Morgan, and 2022-2025 Region 7 Director Luke Arnold.  We would also like to welcome our new and returning MHYF officers.  2022-2024 MHYF Vice-President Brian Moore, 2022-2024 MHYF Treasurer Rebecca Jeppeson, and the 2022-2024 Director of Scholarships Alyssa DuVal.  Both MHBA and MHYF Boards will continue to work to grow and improve the Association as well as move the Miniature Hereford breed successfully into the future!
