In a year that was anything but predictable, one constant held fast: Americas farmers and ranchers and, among them, Hereford breeders.

In this year-end report from the American Hereford Association (AHA), we learn how Hereford cattlemen and women grew the breed through 2020.

Despite the unforeseen challenges of 2020, AHA Executive Vice President Jack Ward says Hereford breeders and the American Hereford Association continued to add value to Hereford genetics. Year-end reports shared during the Associations recent annual meeting show their efforts paid off.

"As the commercial industry has looked to add crossbreeding back into the programs to increase fertility, longevity, disposition all the things that are known in Hereford cattle its created a great opportunity for us said Ward.

Ward reports the Association experienced increases in registrations and memberships this fiscal year, while sale averages climbed.

The real excitement within our breed and within our membership is in its growth" said Ward. "Its seen growth because the breeders have been committed to genetic improvement and providing the tools necessary to make the changes to produce the type of product that their customers need and then, ultimately, the consumer. So its all encompassing.
