Not all changes can happen overnight, but we do listen to our membership.
The MHBA has implemented a new 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.*
This rule will take effect on the following dates:
Steers - effective 1/1/2024
Bulls - effective 1/1/2025
Heifers - effective 1/1/2026
*Please note that DNA verification not completed by the entry deadline for the 2024 National Western Stock Show will be accepted at check-in. This exception only applies to the 2024 NWSS.
