The Alberta Hereford Association (AHA) is a group of seedstock producers raising quality purebred Hereford cattle for the commercial industry. The AHA consists of approximately 650 members from across our province. We are organized through the AHA to promote; to the commercial rancher/farmer, feedlots, and auction markets; the benefits of Hereford genetics in any herd.
Our Association has 12 Directors across Alberta and an additional 3 Directors who represent Alberta on the Canadian Hereford Association Board. As well, we have a secretary/manager to manage the work of the Association. The AHA also supports the National Marketing Director at the CHA level who travels the country promoting Herefords in auction markets, feedlots and packing plants. The position is designed to maintain contact with the agricultural industry as a whole while representing the Hereford breed.. Gathering feedback on Hereford cattle, as well as promoting Herefords, is our main objective provincially, nationally, and internationally.
The Hereford breed built the cattle industry in Canada. This breed has a great deal to offer, and we truly believe that it is the backbone of the cattle industry in this country. We would invite you to explore our website, join us at any of our functions, and / or visit a breeder near you. For more information on Herefords, have a look at the articles: A Short History of the Hereford Breed and Why Hereford (supplied by Mr. Kurt Gilmore, Canadian Hereford Digest). Our website informs the public on AHA, Club, and Junior events. We also offer a commercial female and steer classified section.
