Hereford breeders can order the Profitabull Hereford banner and the Hereford flag that were displayed in Denver and in Kansas City during the JNHE and Annual Meeting. The 3' x 8' banner costs $125 and the 1'x 4' flag is $50. To order, visit Hereford.org and under the “Marketplace” tab is the “Hereford banner, flag” link. To order, you will be directed to the Boelte-Hall website. On that site select “Boelte-Hall Greeting Cards,” and then this link should take you to a page with Hereford cards. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the banner and flag options.
Unveiled during the HYFA “Growing a Lasting Legacy” campaign fundraiser the Out at Tie Outs art-mounted print is the perfect gift for any Hereford enthusiast. The photo was taken by Heidi Anderson, Legacy Livestock, of the historic West Bottoms during the 2013 JNHE in Kansas City. Print No. 1 sold in Kansas City, while numbers 2-99 are now available. You can order a 10"20" for $140 or 12"36" for $225.
Also unveiled during the 2013 AHA Annual Meeting was The Hereford Ox, 1840. The original canvas painting is on display at the AHA. Ten limited-edition canvas prints were sold. Now HYFA is offering 11"14" prints of The Hereford Ox, 1840 as well as Anxiety 4 and Silver. Prints of all three can be purchased individually for $30 or a set of Anxiety 4 and Silver for $50. Visit HerefordYouthFoundation.org to order all four HYFA prints.
