Wisconsin Hereford Association Heifer Grant Recipients

The Wisconsin Hereford Association congratulates Mya Bevan and Sloan Averbeck for receiving Heifer Grants through the WHA. Mya's grant was sponsored by the consignors of the Wisconsin Hereford Association Spring Sale. Sloan's grant was sponsored by the Wisconsin Hereford Association. Both grants were $500 and were used toward purchase of a Hereford female at the 2024 Wisconsin Hereford Association Spring Sale on March 2. Mya purchased a heifer from Plum River Ranch, and Sloan purchased a heifer from Golden Maples P. H. Haven at the sale. The purpose of the grants is to assist Wisconsin Junior Hereford Association youth members in purchasing a Hereford female to start building their own herd. Grant recipients were selected based on an essay which included information about goals for their Hereford Herd and plans for management and care of the heifer purchased, as well as involvement in school and extracurricular activities. For more information regarding the Wisconsin Hereford Association Heifer Grant program, please contact WHA Board Member Kelly Oleson at [email protected]
