The American Black Hereford Association was officially started in
​1994 by the late John Gage from Lawrence, Kansas. John's friend,
​ Frank Felton designed the genetic basis for this new breed. He was
​an expert in the use of genetics and performance testing. In 1997,
​J & N Ranch purchased the Black Hereford herd and Association.
