Texas Hereford Association

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.

Our Vision

The Texas Hereford Association's staff, current leadership, and its members hope to revolutionize the industry by placing a Hereford bull in every pasture, and a Hereford steak on every plate across the state of Texas.

Our Mission

The Texas Hereford Association will provide the leadership to unite, foster and protect the interest of the Hereford breed; and promote fairly the production and consumption of Hereford beef universally.
