It Pays to be an Association Member

The American Hereford Association is one of the largest beef registry associations in the United States with more than 7,000 adult and junior members. Join the AHA and reap the benefits of your membership.

Why Be a Member?

The obvious, immediate reason for membership is to receive membership fees (generally non-members pay twice the fee members pay). Members receive many other services non-members do not in addition to being able to vote on vital breed and industry issues. If you are not already a member of the American Hereford Association, download a membership application below, or contact the association office at 816-842-3757 if you have additional questions.

When you have completed the application, send it with the proper fee to the Association. Upon approval by the Board of Directors, a membership certificate will be issued and you will receive official notice you have become a member of the AHA.


Become a Member

Recording memberships are annual memberships issued by the Association in the name of an individual, farm or ranch, partnership or corporation. The recording member must pay annual dues annually.

Recording members may attend all meetings of the Association and have voting rights at all official membership meetings. A recording member also saves in service fees charged for registration and transfer of Hereford cattle.
