“As our national headquarters moves to Kentucky, I am ecstatic to bring our first national show and expo to Kentucky,” said ABHA President, Tim Tarter. “We owe a special thanks to the counties and the state Agriculture Development Board for the commitment of Ag Development Funds that have helped make the ABHA’s transition to Kentucky a reality.”
ABHA Junior National Livestock Expo’s welcome ceremony will take place on Friday, June 30, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. CDT at the WKU Ag Expo center. Local and state agriculture leaders will join the ABHA board to welcome participants from across the country to the Expo and the Bowling Green area.


“The ABHA new executive director, Brian Chism, and the ABHA board looks forward to working with Kentucky agricultural leaders and cattle producers in the years ahead as we grow our organization,” said Tarter. “I encourage all interested in the Black Hereford breed to attend the welcoming ceremony and help us welcome our participants to Kentucky.”
