“Thanks to the supporters of the Hereford Research Foundation we are able to continue to invest in industry leading research,” says Jack Ward, American Hereford Association (AHA) chief operating officer and director of breed improvement.

The Hereford Research Foundation was established in 2009 as a division of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America, a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization to support breed improvement projects outside the scope of the AHA budget.

The fund has already supported heterosis research projects like the Harris Ranch study and has helped set the groundwork for a new GrowSafe system built at Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb.
