MINIATURE HEREFORD youth foundation®
I am the owner of Rafter P Ranch Miniature Herefords and principal of the structural engineering consulting firm, Pence Engineering, LLC. My wife, Mikala and I live in beautiful and diverse area of southern Colorado called the San Luis Valley. Our ranch's mission is to provide our family, friends and neighbors with the same high quality ranch beef we stock in our freezer while maintaining top genetics for success in the show ring. And while you'll find my wife and I bundled up on those cold mornings to feed and down on our knees combing and spraying on show day, it's never to the exclusion of our children at the lead, because our top focus is to assure that they earn the pride, confidence, respect, and work ethic that come with raising and showing these wonderful animals.
I am enjoying the opportunity to support youth beyond my own kids through the MHYF and I look forward to meeting you at the upcoming shows!
MONTE VISTA, CO
I am Brian Moore from Windsor Colorado. I grew up on a dairy farm near Osage Iowa. Farming in Iowa in the late 70’s and 80’s was rough. So I went to college, became a teacher and never thought I would ever be involved with livestock again. Fast forward about 20 years ago my family, wife Vickie, son Nolan and daughter Kate were walking through the barn on the hill at the NWSS and fell in love with the Mini’s and I told myself, I can raise and enjoy these animals. In 2015 we bought two cow calf pairs and never looked back.
Kids are the future of the breed and I love the being able to give back to the youth foundation.
