Hereford Women of Nebraska


Hereford Women of Nebraska, (HWN), is an organization to promote the growth and encourage the influence of Hereford cattle. To extend hospitality and assist in developing an image of the Hereford industry. To encourage the young people of Nebraska to learn through actual practice, as well as the great potential of Hereford cattle.

HWN does this through many activities.  Some of these include supporting contest and scholarships for the Nebraska Junior Hereford Association as well as the Nebraska Hereford Queen program. 

HWN has several trademark "Herfy" items for sale to help with funding the many programs.  To keep up to date with activities, "LIKE", our Facebook page, or contact our President. Contact information may be found on the Nebraska Hereford Association website as well as contact information to invite our Nebraska Hereford Queen to one of your functions.
