Hereford Research Foundation

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 American Hereford Association (AHA) budget.


About the Foundation

HRF was developed to support programs that enhance beef cattle production. These projects will
be conducted throughout the U.S. in conjunction with universities, private firms and ranches and
shall be funded by donations. Extensive time and resources are spent each year by the AHA to
enhance beef cattle production through various ongoing projects. You can see the value of these
projects at Hereford.org. Contact AHA for more information on how to make tax-deductible
contributions.
