Hereford enthusiasts once again came together to support the youth Jan. 13 in the Beef Palace Auction Arena during the National Western Stock Show in Denver. Belle Point Ranch and the Dave and Mary Ann McMahon family of Ft. Smith, Ark., generously supported the Hereford Youth Foundation by purchasing the embryo package for $20,000. All of the proceeds go to HYFA.
With the purchase of Lot 1, Belle Point and the McMahons have acquired six exciting matings, 20 embryos in all, and some of the top Hereford genetics in the country.
These generous donors contributed to the embryo package: Sunset Ridge Herefords, Billy Martin, Cumming, Ga.; Mill Creek Ranch/Pied Piper Farms, Alma, Kan., and Hamlin, Texas; Jensen Bros., Kevin and Shelia, Courtland, Kan.; Topp Herefords, Ryan and Prairie Topp, Grace City, N.D.; and Fawcett's Elm Creek Ranch, Keith and Cheryl, Daniel and Kari, Ree Heights, S.D.
Through the years Belle Point Ranch and the McMahon family have been very supportive of Hereford youth. They also purchased the 2010 HYFA Foundation Female.
"Since 2008, Lot 1 has generated nearly $250,000, and it is very rewarding to have donors like Belle Point Ranch step up time and again in support of the Foundation," says Amy Cowan, HYFA director. "The Dave and Mary Ann McMahon family, as well as the embryo donors for this year's package lot, are to be commended for their continuous support of our Hereford youth program."
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 or visit HerefordYouthFoundation.org.
