About The Canadian Hereford Association

The Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) was formed in 1890 with the primary objects of preserving the purity of Hereford cattle, promoting the interests of the importers and breeders of such animals, and collecting, verifying, preserving and publishing the pedigrees of said cattle and other useful Hereford information.

Today there is an estimated 120,000 purebred Hereford females in production in Canada, 300,000 to 350,000 straight bred Hereford females (10% of the beef cow population), and it is also estimated that well over 50% of the beef cow population in Canada carries Hereford breeding.

The Canadian Hereford Association has approximately 1500 annual, life and junior members across Canada. It registers 30,000 purebred Herefords annually, which is about 20% of the 150,000 registrations processed by the 29 breed associations in Canada.
