The American Black Hereford Association was officially organized and started in 1994 in Lawrence, Kansas by the late John Gage.  John relied on his friend, Frank Felton, to design the genetic basis for this new breed.  Frank was an internationally acclaimed Hereford Breeder and a pioneer in the use of genetics and 
performance testing.   

By using a registered Black Hereford bull on a set of black commercial cows, you can eliminate red baldie calves.  Almost all sale barns in America will pull red and red baldie calves off a set of calves, that are from the same herd, and sell the black and black baldies seperate for more money.
