Miniature Herefords at the Herefords Australia Youth Expo

Today has seen the kick off of the Herefords Australia Youth Expo, held over the weekend in Wodonga VIC. The AMHBN has been represented by Caitlyn and Emily Nixon from Carrington Park Minature Hereford Stud, Wagga Wagga. The expo is a yearly event held in any nominated city and attracts entrants from across the country. It is a good way to introduce young people into the world of cattle showing with seminars on EBV’s, pasture management and many more interesting topics. We wish the Nixon girls all the best and good luck.
