He attended Texas Tech University for one year before moving to Oklahoma State University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Animal Science in 1959. In 1960, Wayne married Gayle George of Canadian. 
Wayne’s career as a Hereford breeder began when he became the herdsman for Haggard & McHaney Hereford Farm in Kennett, Mo., in 1959. In 1960 he entered the army and was stationed at Virginia Beach, Va., until 1962. Next he became the manager of the Bruning Feedyard in Nebraska. From there he moved to the famous CK Ranch in Brookville, Kan., until 1964. That year Wayne was hired by K.D. Owen to manage Indian Mound Farm in New Harmony, Ind. 
While in Indiana he established Indian Mound Farm as one of the top Hereford operations in the world. The Indian Mound cattle won numerous shows from coast to coast and compiled more show points than any other herd in the decade of the 1970’s. Wayne sold top breeding stock for record prices to the best Hereford herds in 40 states and several foreign countries. While in Indiana Wayne served as President of the Indiana Hereford Association and then served as the President of the American Hereford Association in 1979. Wayne was involved in Hereford events around the world including Canada, Hungary, England, Uruguay and Argentina. 
By 1981 Wayne had become a full partner on the Indian Mound cattle and decided to move to Canadian, Texas, and start Indian Mound Ranch. Haygood and Owen dispersed the Indian Mound Farm herd that year with a sale that still holds the record for high average of a dispersion sale. Wayne brought all of the females that were two years old and younger to Texas to carry on the Indian Mound breeding. 
In Texas, Wayne continued to breed and sell cattle that impacted the Hereford breed. Wayne received the Animal Science Graduate of Distinction award from Oklahoma State University in 1982. He judged numerous cattle shows both nationally and internationally and is the only person to judge the National Western Hereford show in three different decades. Wayne served as President of the Texas Hereford Association and as a director of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth and as a director of the First State Bank in Canadian. In later years Wayne was honored as an honorary member of the Texas Hereford Association and an Honorary Vice President of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth and was inducted into the American Hereford Association Heritage Hall of Fame. In 2002 the Wayne Haygood National Hereford Show was held at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Wayne was a member of the Canadian First United Methodist Church. 
Wayne is survived by his wife, Gayle; daughter, Leslie Osborn and husband Tim of Tuttle, Okla.; son, Lee and wife Jacqui of Canadian; daughter, Mary Myers and husband Sean of Amarillo; two grandchildren, Will and Katie Osborn of Tuttle; and brother Carroll and wife Carla of Amarillo.
