History of the Texas Hereford Association
"The object of this organization shall be uniting, furthering, and protecting the interest of the Hereford breeders in the state of Texas."
|The Texas Hereford Association had its beginning
in a San Antonio, Texas, boot shop on November 7, 1899, and the
four men who are identifiable in this painting helped make Texas
Hereford history on that important day. Captain William S. (Sude) Ikard of Henrietta, the first breeder of Hereford cattle
in the state of Texas, featured in the center of the painting, has
just been elected to serve as the first president of the newly formed
Texas Hereford Association, and he is being congratulated by Col.
B. C. Rhome of Rhome. Behind these two individuals, applauding
vigorously, are from left to right: B. C. Rhome Jr., also of Rhome,
and J. F. Yearwood of Georgetown.
