KANSAS CITY, MO – David Breiner, Alma, KS, was announced as the new president of the American Hereford Association (AHA) during the Annual Membership Meeting in Kansas City, MO, Oct. 29.

Breiner began his Hereford career in 1972 when he helped start Mill Creek Ranch, Alma, KS, after graduating from Kansas State University.

“It is a humbling feeling to be elected president of the American Hereford Association,” Breiner says. “It is also an exciting experience for me to be a part of the Hereford breed’s successes, our breed’s increase in demand, and to help our membership reap the rewards that our breed has to offer the cattle industry. I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, the AHA staff and our membership to promote the Hereford breed.”

Currently, Breiner, along with Bob Moore of Pied Piper Farms, operates the ranch, which consists of 200 registered Hereford and Angus females along with 300 commercial females utilized in an embryo transfer (ET) program.

Mill Creek Ranch has participated in the National Reference Sire Program and Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program since the early ’70s as well as the National Hereford Feedout.
