About Us

Welcome to the new Hereford Women of Missouri! We have been reformed and re-energized into one brand new group to help support our breed – originally known as the Hereford Women and the Missouri Poll-ettes.

Our mission is to promote the Hereford breed. We are made up of women who have the passion and desire to see our breed succeed through guidance and support to our Missouri Hereford breeders and the Missouri Hereford juniors. We hold our annual business meeting at the Missouri State Fair and also have casual meetings at the MJCA show in June and the Missouri Hereford Annual Banquet held in December. At the annual banquet, we provide appetizers, drinks and decorations.

The Hereford Women of Missouri also sponsor the Missouri Hereford Queen. Each year at the banquet, the new queen for the year is selected and crowned. The Missouri Hereford Queen represents Missouri Hereford breeders at local, state and national events.

The Hereford Women of Missouri award a $250 scholarship each year to a deserving high school and/or college student. Applications for the scholarship can be found on the website. Throughout the year, membership fundraise for these financial commitments. Our fundraisers include silent auctions at the annual banquet, 50/50 raffles at the state fair and collecting cans for the juniors and queen. All your support given is greatly appreciated.

2023 Missouri Hereford Queen

Taylor McGlothlin – Richmond, MO

Hi! I’m Taylor McGlothlin, a 17-years-old junior at Richmond High School. I am very involved in FFA, FCCLA, 4-H and tennis. After high school I plan to attend college and get my bachelor’s degree in agricultural business.

At seven years old I started showing cattle, and over the years I have incorporated Hereford steers into my project. Raising Hereford cattle has taught me leadership skills, responsibil-ity and sportsmanship. It has also opened many doors and opportunities for me as well. I have met new friends and some amazing people who I will look up to forever. These people have been mentors to me since I was little.

I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for my two aunts, Amy and Angela Phillips. They have taught me so much through the years about hard work, dedication, time management and most importantly the Hereford breed. I can’t thank them enough.

I am very honored and blessed to serve as this year’s Missouri Hereford Queen
