Kansas Hereford Association

The Kansas Hereford Women was first organized in 1969, and was originally known as the Kansas Hereford Auxiliary. Since its inception, the organization’s objectives have been to promote the Hereford breed and beef production, extend hospitality to established and new breeders, and provide support to the youth and their activities. Currently, KHW activities include supporting the KHA with various needs and expenses, promoting Herefords with a hospitality table at the Kansas State Fair, and supporting youth activities and the junior show in Manhattan. We also provide financial support to the Kansas Hereford Queen and the Princess.

We usually meet at least once a year at the KHA Annual Meeting for election of officers and directors. During the meeting we also hold a silent auction, which is our main fundraiser for the year. Proceeds from the auction, donations, and dues fund our yearly obligations. We encourage interested women to join us. New members are always welcome!
