Board of Directors
Jerry DeSmidt- 1st Honorary Vice President
Howdy to all fellow Ameraucana breeders. My name is Jerry DeSmidt and I am honored to serve as your 1st Honorary Vice President. Most of you know
me as I have held positions on the ABC Board in the past. Jake Hendzel and I own Woodhaven in Pulaski WI. We have been showing Ameraucanas for over
15 years and have raised most colors in bantam and large fowl. We also have a variety of other poultry that we show along with our
Pinzgauer cattle. We have shown at most, if not all the major Ameraucana events held in the country for quite some time.
I have a B.S. in horticulture and had worked in the green industry for over 20 years. After making a career change in 2012 I now work
for Genex in Shawano as a sire handler. Working with 2000 lb. bulls can be challenging at times.
If there is anything I can help you with please feel free to contact me.
I may not have all the answers but will do my best to help out.
