Auction benefits Hereford youth

Hereford enthusiasts came together to support the youth of the breed Jan. 14 in the Beef Palace Auction Arena at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. The Torrance family of Torrance Polled Herefords, Media, Ill., bought Lot 1 for $31,000. All of the proceeds go to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America.

With the purchase of Lot 1, the Torrances bought 40 Grade 1 embryos from the heart of Hoffman Ranch LLC and Hoffman/W4 LLC's elite donor program.

The embryo package is based around proven genetics designed to take the buyer's Hereford operation to new levels. Hoffman Ranch is home to numerous national champions that are leaving their mark in the Hereford industry. These champions have left the show ring to become donor dams.

"The Hereford Youth Foundation of America owes a huge gratitude of thanks to the Hoffman Family, and Hoffman Ranch/W4 LCC for stepping up to create the unique embryo package that was offered in the Mile High Night Sale," says Amy Cowan, American Hereford Association director of youth activities and Foundation.

She adds, "This franchise package created a lot of excitement throughout the week in Denver and we appreciate the Torrance family for capitalizing on this offering that will benefit Hereford youth across the nation.

The Hereford Youth Foundation of America is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit. Its mission is to support scholarship, education and leadership activities within the Hereford breed. For more information about the HYFA contact the AHA at 816-842-3757.
