KANSAS CITY, MO – John Woolfolk, Jackson, TN, was announced as the new president of the American Hereford Association (AHA) during the Annual Membership Meeting in Kansas City, MO, Nov. 1.

John has been in the Hereford business since 1963. His family farm, Woolfolk Farms, was established in 1865 and added Herefords to the operation in 1950.

“I certainly consider it an honor to have been asked to serve in a leadership role as we approach another year in which we anticipate a continued growth in memberships, registrations, transfers and all other areas of business for the Association,” John said.

This past year John served as AHA vice president, was chairman of the finance/audit committee, and served on the executive, member service, marketing and building committees and the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) LLC board.

“It is an exciting time for our breed with a renewed interest in the ‘new Hereford’ that is driving demand higher than breeders have seen in recent years,” John said. “The AHA Board and staff are working hard to position the Hereford breed where it can effectively utilize proven technologies that are available in order to continually improve the status of the breed.”

David Breiner, Alma, KS, was selected to serve as the 2011 AHA vice president. David began his career in the Hereford business in 1972 after graduating from Kansas State University when he helped start Mill Creek Ranch, which today includes 200 registered Hereford and Angus females along with 300 commercial females utilized in an embryo transfer (ET) program.
