Heifer sale to benefit Hereford Research Foundation


For the second year in a row, Churchill Cattle Co. is graciously donating proceeds to the Hereford Research Foundation from the sale of an outstanding bred heifer during its fall sale. This year, the "World Class Female Sale" will take place Sept. 14 at the ranch near Manhattan, Mont. Dale and Nancy Venhuizen have generously donated a top-quality heifer by Golden Oak Outcross 18U that is bred to the popular HH Perfect Timing and due to calve in early January. Dale says,

"This heifer is out of a very good and very proven P606 cow. The heifer is donor material for sure at this point in her life." On top of that, the Venhuizens are sweetening the deal even more by including a flush of the heifer's dam (Churchill Lady 4166) next spring. Dale has also offered semen on any of the Churchill herd sires to use for the flush at no extra cost. This is truly a unique opportunity.

Jack Ward, American Hereford Association chief operating officer and director of breed improvement, says, "On behalf of AHA and the HRF we owe a huge thanks to Dale and his family for this donation. As a past chairman of the breed improvement committee, Dale knows how important the HRF is to supporting genetic improvement projects. This is not just a heifer, but a real opportunity to select from the heart of the Churchill program." More information on the heifer is available in the Churchill sale catalog posted at HerefordMarketplace.com.

In 2009, the HRF was established to support the American Hereford Association's progressive goals of continuing research proving Herefords' benefits in the commercial industry. For more information on the HRF, visit Hereford.org. To visit with Jack Ward about this opportunity, or to donate to the HRF, call the AHA office at 816-842-3757.
