A NEW cattle fitting tool that will obtain hair perfection. The Hair Wizard’s™ wire teeth separate every last hair strand. It actually reaches under the hair, down to the hide and pulls up that hair you didn’t even know existed. This is not possible with any other comb. The Hair Wizard™ is very beneficial in the loin to tailhead and top area, the flank and belly line, and the back fins of legs. It works incredible on thin to medium body hair that needs more base. The Hair Wizard™ comes in 6” and 9” combs. Much more handy and useable in this design. You can count on the wire teeth not to be too stiff or too soft as past poodle and wool cards. The wire teeth design and density are exactly perfect for cattle.

Point Champions & Runner-Ups by Joelynn Donough

THE SHOWBOX | july 2011

We are not building animals, we are building kids. To the average, everyday person walking down the street, this phrase may sound a little strange. But, to 4-H and FFA youth members, these are the words that best describe the purpose and goal of the number one junior livestock association in the United States. The Texas Junior Livestock Association not only rewards showmen in the ring, but also in life. What externally appears to be nothing more than an ongoing show that kids attend every weekend is internally so much more. Members are taught the value of hard work and sportsmanship while building a network of friends that will last a lifetime. TJLA-sanctioned shows are not held so frequently for the benefit of the animals, but for youth to get the chance to continue to learn and grow through showing, learning, and interacting with peers and industry leaders. Each TJLA show houses hundreds of stock and exhibitors and gives youth a chance to make friends, practice with their stock and have a chance to build the bank account. Jackpots, buckles and points await the winners’ circle. But of the three, what are most members striving to earn? Much to my surprise, POINTS! Show points add up to more prizes and awards, so the more you show and more you attend, the more points you accumulate. This spring, I received the amazing opportunity to visit with this past year’s point winners and runners-up in each of the species. I simply asked a few questions, just to better get to know each one. But the feedback I received was far from simple. Being a non-Texan, I am consistently being reminded how amazing the youth of this state really are and how wonderful an opportunity they have through the TJLA. However, after talking with these elite ten, my respect and awe for this association has been placed on a whole other level. This year’s Goat Points Runner-up comes from Bryan Texas. Reagan Thurman is the 11-year-old spitfire with a heart bigger than his love for his projects. He has spent the last four years showing his goats with this only being his second in the TJLA ring. Aside from showing, Thurman keeps himself busy with his favorite pastime – baseball. “I play on a little league and tournament team,”said Thurman. When I asked him which he liked better between showing and baseball his response was simple – “baseball.” That is not to say Thurman is not an active face in the

goat arena. He and his seven-year-old sister, Courtney, racked up points by traveling as far as Lubbock to show. Thurman wasn’t the only point leader in the family either. Courtney was Champion in the pee wee division, something of which this little lady is extremely proud. “They both work so hard, traveled many miles and reached goals they never even set out to achieve!” said Thurman’s mother. “Beau (Thurman’s father) and I are very proud.” But showing wasn’t just about the points this year for Thurman. He was just as satisfied being the smiling socialite seen in his trademark purple shirt throughout the barns. “One of my favorite parts of showing is meeting all different people and making many new friends,” said Thurman. Those friends came in awfully handy this past year when Thurman was faced with a tricky dilemma. “I had two goats that were always in the same class at every show. I would take the one I thought was better, but my other goat would beat me in Ring A. So I’d switch ‘um in the next ring… and get beat again! It was really funny for the girl helping me!” As for all the shows he attends, this future member of the class of 2021 at Texas A&M University declares the State Fair of Texas as his favorite. “It was the first major I made the sale at.” But no matter what show he is at, his favorite memory will always be the same. “The best part is when you are in the grand drive. When the judge walks over to you and shakes your hand for champion, that’s pretty cool,” said Thurman with a hint of a smile. However, there is no question that the lessons he has gained through showing in the TJLA have far outweighed the number of “shakes” he has received. “The TJLA has taught me determination and that hard work really does pay off. I’m in the barn with my goats everyday feeding, washing, and training them. Some kids don’t do that, but I do! That makes doing well feel so much more valuable.” The heifer division was taken over by the girls this year. Our runner-up was 13-year-old, Kalli Ellis of LaWard. Kalli is no stranger to the cattle ring, having shown steers at the county level since the third grade and dominating the heifer ring at TJLA shows for the past three years. “I love the Belt Buckle and Fall Classic!” exclaims Ellis, who finds time when she isn’t training her stock to be an active cheerleader, as well as play basketball, volleyball and run track. “After school and practice, me and dad are in the barn making sure the cattle are fed right, look good and are show ready.” When I asked Ellis what the most valuable part about being a member of the TJLA was, she had no hesitation with her response. “I wouldn’t be near the showman without the TJLA.” This is coming from a young lady who has seen many rings; Ellis has traveled as far as Odessa and Lubbock with her parents Larry and Sherri. She has exhibited at all majors across the state of Texas and holds the memory of her first heifer show in San Antonio. “Yeah, pretty nuts to start at such a big show. My heifer was kind of crazy! But now, as a cow, she is fine,” said Ellis, another Aggie hopeful. Like Thurman, Ellis also attributes the company she keeps with the association.

Kalli Ellis

“A lot of my friends are show friends. I would never have met them if it wasn’t for the TJLA. That’s the best part, I think… just meeting all those people and making so many friends.”

Faith Fletcher

Keeping on the same track with cattle, this year’s steer runner-up comes to us from Portland, Texas. Faith Fletcher is the 13-year-old daughter of Walker and Kelly Fletcher. She has been showing for six years, this being her fourth in the TJLA circuit. There is no question that the steer ring is one of the most competitive species for livestock throughout the country. Experience and knowledge are necessary factors to be successful. Or are they? “I started out with goats,” laughed Fletcher. “But after a year decided they weren’t my thing, so I switched to cattle.” So what is Fletcher’s key to show ring success? Dedication! “I judge, and I tried track, but it just took up too much time. I work on my steers a lot and they are way more important.” Like the other runners-up, Fletcher would like to attend Texas A&M and study veterinary medicine, in hopes of one day opening her own vet clinic. She puts it simply, “I’ve got it planned out.” This mindset has no doubt been fueled by her passion for her cattle. “I love showing! Especially at the Belt Buckle and Fall Classic, because not only is it air conditioned but it’s really fun with all the people that come. You meet so many people through the TJLA,” said Fletcher. Showing has also housed her favorite memories. From this year at the majors to her first time in a sanctioned ring, Fletcher has had many experiences and triumphs. “I was showing at a jackpot that was a three-ring show. I got distracted by something and walked into the ring the wrong way! That was one of the funniest things that has ever happened.” With all the points she has earned, my guess is that Fletcher hasn’t circled the wrong way many times. Her time in the TJLA has shaped her into an extremely intelligent young lady. Though she claims the experiences she has received as the most valuable part of the association, just sit and talk with her and you will be quick to see it has provided so much more.

Faith Fletcher

Turning the tables a bit, our next runner-up earned his points in the lamb ring. Daniel Hinojosa is a 16-year-old from Misson, Texas. He has been a point leader in the TJLA ring for the past three years, having shown both goats and hogs. He even has made his way to the cattle ring by working with a new steer project which will début in 2012. When not playing golf or fishing with his dad, Hinojosa is traveling with his team to locations as far as Littlefield, Texas. “It’s a nine hour drive from our barn. I have a great time at this show, so I don’t mind. Like my mom says: “we are making memories!” Like his fellow TJLA elite, Hinojosa has made many memories along the way. Whether it be winning champion finewool and reserve champion finewool-cross this past year at the Belt Buckle Bonanza, or having a hungry lamb named “Pig” chew his shirt sleeve while being selected as champion, Hinojosa has seen ups and downs. “Last year Daniel lost two lambs at the Belt Buckle. He literally went full circle,” prided his mother. With a story like this, there is no question of the dedication and perseverance that Hinojosa possesses. But that’s not all, Hinojosa is truly one of the biggest hearted individuals this writer has had the chance to talk with. “I never wear my grand champion buckles. I prefer to show my gratitude to the breeder and give them the buckle as a gift,” said Hinojosa. This future Aggie and hopeful Eagle Scout attributes most of his personality, confidence and expertise to the TJLA. “I now can speak to someone and look them in the eye. I’ve grown as a showman (everyday is practice to the big day). I’ve made many friends, young and old, with valuable insight in the lamb industry and I’ve been able to meet lamb breeders from Texas and beyond. I was not able to do any of these things before the TJLA.” The final runner-up is extremely well known in the hog ring. Our oldest winner, and inspiration for this stories leading quote is none other than 18-year-old Tiffany Wooldridge of Alvarado, Texas. Though she has only made her mark in the TJLA for the past two years, Wooldridge has been showing both hogs and lambs for five years. When not busy at the barn, Wooldridge is extremely active in her school’s volleyball, basketball and cheerleading program. As my visit with her took place, she was even preparing for tryouts for the Tarleton State University Cheer Team. With that in mind, our first non-Aggie hopeful plans on getting her nursing degree at TSU. This past year not only capped the ending of Wooldridge’s youth show career, but it also brought with it the memory of one particular animal. “Beau,” one of the year’s show barrows is the reason for not only a large portion of Wooldridge’s points, but also a large number of buckles on display in her room. “He was champion at a lot of shows, but more importantly, a lot of judges told me he was the best barrow they had ever seen. That gave me a lot of confidence and just made me feel really good,” explained Wooldridge. Whether it is Beau’s memory or her age and years of experience, Wooldridge made statements that certainly any age stockman should live by. “We are not building animals. We are

building kids. The TJLA teaches us responsibility and how to work hard to achieve our goals. It’s not about making a better hog, but about making us better.” Lastly, our graduate wanted nothing more than to say thanks. “Thanks to my mom for always driving me everywhere. And thanks to William and Elise Geter for all the time they spend with me, making sure I always was on top of my game. They are like family to me now.” Whether its making friends or adding members to the family, the TJLA instills life lessons and acquaintances that will remain in the hearts and lives of its youth for a lifetime. Also, it can very easily make “a name” for those participants. Our point winners begin with a young lady that is no stranger to any show’s backdrop, but more importantly is no stranger to getting the job done.. right! Sierra Martin is the 14-yearold daughter of RaeAnn and Glenn Martin of Mason, Texas. The family is well known in the goat world, and to no surprise, Martin is this year’s goat point winner. I first met Martin while photgraphing a show in Kansas City and have not been let down by her showmanship skills or wit ever since. “I’ve been showing for about nine years, since third grade in the TJLA ring. I’ve done lambs, goats, hogs and cattle,” said Martin. “We go all over the country for shows too – the Royal, Denver, Louisville… and all over Texas. But still my favorite show is Houston. It’s the best, the biggest, and it’s just amazing.” Martin has learned quite a bit over the past nine years of showing and she and older sister, Chama, are certainly key teachers to younger sisters, Aspen and Dakota. “We work really hard. We want to do well, but the TJLA has taught us that when we get knocked down, we gotta keep our heads up and work to get back up.” That ethic has no question paid off in the ring. “My favorite memory is when I won the State Fair of Texas in 2006. Oh, and Houston 2008 when I won. That was awesome, really memorable,” said Martin. However, even with the success she has experienced, Martin is still an extremely humble and sweet young lady. One fact that might come as a surprise – “I actually like showing sheep better than goats. It’s more fun!” Though she can make a quick decision on what species she likes to show, where to go to college is another story. “I’m going to start at a junior college. Either Connors, Redlands, Blinn and maybe Butler. Then I’m going to transfer to Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Texas Tech or Texas A&M.” One thing is for sure; No matter where this elite lady goes, success and admiration are

sure to follow her. Our next point leader made her mark in the heifer ring by blowing the competition out of the water, both with the quality of her stock and with the talent and grace she brings forth when you put a show stick in her hands. Sixteen-year-old, Mary Kate Walters of Brenham, Texas has been showing cattle since she was old enough to run. “I have been showing in Pee Wee shows since I was three-years-old. I joined the TJLA in third grade so I’ve been in those rings for eight years now,” said Walters. With that many years under her belt, it is no surprise that our newest Aggie hopeful declares showmanship her favorite part about showing. “Each showmanship is different; be it the barn location, environment, other showmen, etc… it’s intense and fun in the same breath,” said Walters. In the same thought, this many years has seen many miles. From Lubbock to Arkansas, Walters has made her mark in national rings. “I always look forward to my state and All-American Brahman shows. I have so many friends from other states and this is when we get to hang out and have fun!” Most would think that with all the miles Walters and her crew have traveled, she would have little time for non-livestock activities. But think again! From being a competitive cheerleader to art club and from TJLA director to a participant in Maifest in Brenham, this young beauty is BUSY! Yet, she still keeps her cool and is extremely humble about the experiences she has been through and the value of this association. “The TJLA means the world to me. I have made so many friends who share the same passion, and we will always be there for each other. Through the TJLA I have learned knowledge, responsibility, leadership, and respect. Each of these areas will lead me now and into the future.” Each TJLA winner has no doubt gained experiences and knowledge that they will carry with them throughout their years, but not many get to say it also earned them a crown. The winner of this year’s steer points is also this year’s TJLA sweetheart, the lovely Kaylee Smith. This 11, soon to be 12-year-old, is from Angleton and is without a shadow of doubt, a familiar face in the steer and heifer arena. Having shown for the past eight years, four of them through the TJLA, Kaylee has collected numerous banners, ribbons and buckles as well as the value and true heart of the association. “You get to interact with your animals and watch as sweet ones get more sweet and mean ones turn into the sweet ones,” said Smith. When not sticking her way to another banner, Smith likes to play basketball and volleyball, but truly dedicates most of her time to this association and her projects. “I had a steer slip his halter in the ring and instead of running away he just stood

there.” Clearly all that hard work really does come in handy. Yet another future Texas A&M Aggie, Smith quickly responded that the College Station show was her favorite. “But I also like the Heart of Texas at Waco and of course, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.” It was there, in the green arena that Smith thinks back to her favorite memory from showing. It was her first year at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and she was about to show her Angus steer in the championship drive for the breed. “I wasn’t expecting much. I just thought I was out there to represent my class. I looked away and saw the judge walk over to another steer. I thought ‘Oh man, I didn’t win.’ But then I looked up just in time to see him slapping my steer as champion Angus. It was a really cool feeling when they brought me the banner. Really exciting!!!” Our lone royalty in the Elite 10 may see the association in a different light, but still has the same thoughts for its true meaning. “Kids look up to you. They see you winning and want to work harder so they can win too. But it’s not all about winning. It’s about what you learn and the people you meet. Besides, it’s just one person’s opinion.” The sheep ring was taken by storm this year by a young man from Stephenville, Texas. Sixteen-year-old Ross Hargrove knows the value of hard work, dedication and that some sticky situations can make for years of carefulness and laughter. “I’ve been showing since I was in the third grade, but this is only my first year through the TJLA. Pretty lucky I guess,” said Hargrove. The humorous teen admits to raising a few goats, but past that, “most of my time is spent showing sheep so I don’t really care to do much else.” Some of the lessons members learn are geared around the technique of showing, the art of judging livestock, and perfecting the skill of public speaking. But some are just downright scary and hilarious. “I love Houston because it’s so big and clean. It’s my favorite show. But one year I was holding my lamb and suddenly I had hands on my head. It was one of the show officials. He told me ‘if you ever leave that much wool on your lamb’s legs again I will kick you out.’ He was completely serious! It really scared me! But now it’s my favorite memory and the funniest thing that has happened to me while I was showing!” My only question to Hargrove was, with the 17 lambs you currently have on feed, are you going to manage their leg wool efficiently? Hargrove has very similar success stories to the other leaders in this article. But one thing that is completely different; his post high school graduate choice. “I’d like to go to Florida Christian College and maybe transfer to A&M later.” Hargrove’s core values and determination have no doubt made

him one of the most polite and professional yet entertaining teenagers I have had the opportunity to work with. Even with only one year within the association under his belt, he still has seen the benefits. “The TJLA teaches work ethic and responsibility. You can’t find anything like it anywhere else.” The last point leader has made waves in a ring where your ability to drive and drive at the right speed and in the right areas starts with pee wees. From a game of “follow the leader” in a hog ring to having her own pig decide to take a shortcut between her legs and to just hanging out at her favorite shows, the Belt Buckle and Fall Classic, Hunter Nabours made this year on the circuit hers. The 17-year-old from Martinsville, Texas tried basketball and softball, but her efforts and time were devoted to a different sport – showing hogs. Nabours has been showing for six years but only two through the TJLA. ”I’ve only shown hogs, just hogs.” It’s no wonder that she’d be such a force. With travels that have taken her as far as San Angelo, the miles Nabours and her hogs have covered do not even come close to the amount of friendships she has developed. “Most of my real friends are show friends. They are your truly best friends. We don’t see each other every day but we see each other on the weekends, and they understand what you are going through and what you are thinking. If you ever needed them, they would be there for you,” smiled Nabours. Though she has yet to decide what she is doing with her future, she can safely remember one thing – the TJLA has built her into an extremely inspiring and strong leader and young woman. “The TJLA is a phenomenal opportunity to learn and grow. You can’t win every show and you learn to take it with a grain of salt. Not only does it teach you valuable life lessons, but it really does teach you how to win and far more importantly, it teaches you how to lose.” The 10 young individuals that were highlighted in this article are all prime examples of what the Texas Junior Livestock Association strives to embody. Not one of the 10 would trade their points or the experiences and memories they hold within them. Each should be extremely honored and congratulated on their hard work and winnings. After all, they were not building the ultimate animal to earn the glory, they were building their future. Good Luck to all of you!

32nd Annual

Belt Buckle Bonanza DeDicateD to

n e B John a b b a r r a C

novemBer 9, 1927 – July 14, 2010

The 32nd Annual Belt Buckle Bonanza is dedicated to the memory of John Ben Carrabba, a former TJLA parent, board member and the most significant financial supporter in the association’s history. John Ben Carrabba probably didn’t dream he would spend every July 4th at a livestock show that first time he attended the Belt Buckle Bonanza. He probably thought that this was a once in a lifetime experience and that he would never do it again. It was 1984, and the show was being held in Abilene, Texas at the West Texas Fairgrounds. It was a hot, dry July 4th. Dr. John Edwards was doing the judging honors, and John Ben didn’t realize it, but he was getting his first look at a man who would become a lifelong friend. Randy was nine, and Ryan was six. That was the year of the infamous “Ice Cream Social.” In my infinite wisdom, I decided that everyone who could needed to bring an ice cream freezer so we could all enjoy ice cream for the holiday. I don’t know if it was the ice cream, but I do know that he left that show interested in the TJLA and what it offered young people. He had decided that he wanted to get into the club calf business. He spent that summer in a vehicle with Cathy and Charles Schroeder buying club calves all over the country. He wanted to raise champion steers, and he was willing to spend whatever amount of money it took in an effort to do so. He built pens at Broken Arrow Ranch in Bryan, bought the best cattle and the best semen he could find, and set out to raise those champions. I first met him at a show in Hearne in the spring of 1985, but the conversation was brief, and I didn’t really remember meeting him until he reminded me of it months later. 42 july 2011 | THE SHOWBOX

by Cherie Carrabba

In June of that year when we were in the middle of planning the 1985 Belt Buckle Bonanza, he called to barter with me about buying the back cover of The Showbox for one year. I am no barterer, so when he told me “that price doesn’t quite fit my budget,” I just asked what he wanted to pay. I don’t remember what he said, but I do remember that it was a lot less than I was asking. When I said okay, he immediately threw in another condition. “You also have to come to my ranch and take photographs.” So I went to his ranch to take photos, and it was the start of a friendship that turned out to be the most expensive bargain he

ever made. John Ben was a doer. He was a natural businessman, and he spent the next 25 years of his life trying to make the TJLA a profitable enterprise. “I can’t understand why this sucker can’t make any money,” he would complain. “People go nuts over showing in the TJLA. It ought to be able to make money.” When I explained to him that it was a niche market, and that it had limited streams of revenue, he threw out every idea in the book. He wanted to buy an embroidery trailer and have the TJLA sell embroidered items. I looked at him in horror! I was going to watch the show; I wasn’t about to spend the rest of my kids’ show careers in a trailer doing embroidery. At one time or the other he thought about the TJLA selling everything from turkey and sausage, (how will we get it delivered?) to wrapping paper, to purses, to jewelry, to… I don’t know what. The problems associated with the majority of those ventures made them impossible, but he never quit throwing out ideas. Last year, after he was ill, he was still trying to think of a way to make the association profitable. “You’ve created a monster,” he would say. “It does so much good for so many people, but it doesn’t make any money,” he would complain. “It is a non-profit association,” I would retort, “It isn’t supposed to make money.” “So are a lot of things — like the Boy Scouts, and they make money; it doesn’t have to make money, but it darn sure has to break even.” But in the end, any year that it didn’t break even, he ended up making up the difference. He griped about it, but he did it, and I don’t know of anyone else who would have done that so many times. He would never admit that he loved the Bonanza, but he had to. You can’t come to the Bonanza for 26 years unless you love it. You can’t put up with the long hours and the complaints, and the crises of the year as well as the heat. He had to tire of the mountain of things involved in moving a show that is bigger than the majority of state fairs out of its offices with its entries, its computers, its prizes, signs, charts, coolers, meals, and stalling lists as well as its staff and camping out at a fairgrounds for five or six days. I consider this show one of my children, and there are times when even I tire of it. The years that Randy and Ryan were showing at the Bonanza were some of the best and worst of our lives. Ag teachers and county agents know well that people love you when you are putting on a show or helping with their kids. When your own kids begin showing, it becomes a different matter. Contrary to folklore, the boys only won the Bonanza one time. Randy won it before his senior year, and Ryan won it before his senior year. We were just as disappointed at not winning that show as any other highly competitive family would be. The boys worked long, hard hours, and they wanted to win that show more than any other because they had grown up helping with it. So we, like others, had butterflies in our stomach when it was time to show, and we also had some big disappointments along the way. That is show business. We all remember the day that I grabbed a Texas flag and started wiping black paint off a black steer that was about to go in the arena. Randy laughed about that for years. That is what it is about — those memories and learning to win and lose.

John Ben was a jealous man; his heritage dictated that. He had that hot Italian blood and a temper that could boil over in five seconds. There were times when he was jealous of the time that the show took and the attention that he didn’t receive. Karen use to say that he was going to blow up at least one time before the Bonanza and one time before the Fall Classic, and that was true. But after he blew, he then was wonderful about addressing the things that had to be done. He would get over the fact that I was working at night. He would go buy pizza for the entire staff and bring it to the office and watch television until I could go home. He loved the camaraderie with the staff, many of whom had been with me since the first show. He always called Sharon Herzog “Honey” and loved to sit in the snack room with the A&M crew asking, “What’s happening? What is going on?” He told me once that he didn’t know how I could have been lucky enough to get all those people to help with that show. “Look at you,” I replied. “I seldom take no for an answer.” He was a bigger than life Texas character — funny, sincere, generous, sometimes unreasonable, but always supportive of this association and its endeavors. He was a wonderful stepfather, and he truly loved me and those boys, sometimes in spite of and sometimes because of the Texas Junior Livestock Association. It is very fitting that this, the 32nd Annual Belt Buckle Bonanza, be dedicated to a man who made a difference in this association and in the lives of many of its members. I have no doubt that both he and Randy are “up there,” watching and laughing as we tackle this show another year. They did that in life, and I don’t expect that they have changed all that much.

Royalty’s Reign

Draws to a Bittersweet End at the Bonanza! By Ryan Rash

I

t all began in 1997 in the Skyline Room of the Travis County Exposition Center. Twenty one young ladies from all over the state of Texas competed to see who would become the first ever Miss TJLA. Since that time the Miss TJLA Pageant has grown to include a TJLA Sweetheart and TJLA Princess. Some of the most beautiful, talented, and goal oriented young women have worn the coveted crown and represented the TJLA with style and grace for 14 years! On Thursday, June, 30 2010, another group of hopefuls will compete in speech, interview, western attire, and final question, and when the shavings settle we will have three fabulous new TJLA titleholders to represent us for the 2011-2012 show season. Ryan Rash who is the founder and Executive Director of the Miss TJLA Pageant states that the upcoming royalty have huge heels to fill “ This was an amazing, beautiful, and humble set of title holders, they truly impressed me with their work ethic and abilities”. Devon Shackelford is the current Miss TJLA and she resides in Comanche, Texas. This sultry brunette is truly a remarkable young lady who has left her mark on the TJLA in more than one way. Whether it is in the pageant, showring, or showmanship contest the sky is the limit for this young lady, and we can not

wait to see her future success unfold. The reigning TJLA Princess is none other than Jillian Williams of Odem, Texas. Jillian’s persistence and tenacity paid off this past year when the crown was placed on her head and she saw a dream fulfilled. Last, but certainly not least, is the TJLA Sweetheart Kaylee Smith of Angleton, Texas. This firecracker possesses beauty, personality, drive, and ambition that is second to none. She has made a lasting impression on everyone she has come in contact with, and this past year she is not only the TCCA Steer All Around Champion for the second consecutive year but she also led the Champion Limousin Steer onto the floor of Reliant Stadium in March. The TJLA would like to thank all three of these beauties for their year of service and wish them the best in their future endeavors. We would like to invite everyone to come watch the Miss TJLA Pageant and attend the coronation of the 2011-2012 TJLA Royalty, which will be held during the TCCA Heifer Awards Banquet.

Good Luck TJLA Members at the Belt Buckle Bonanza & National Junior Heifer Shows!

If you are looking for something that puts that bloom and fat on a sheep or goat without making them soft to handle, then SHEEP/GOAT GLUCoat is THE Answer! • Sheep/Goat GLUCoat is a sugar product. The unique blend of sugars keeps the rumen working longer and faster than just a single source of glucose such as cane molasses. By speeding up rumen activity comes increased feed intake and palatability. It has been shown to dramatically enhance fat cover, increase feed efficiency and average daily gain. • Sheep/Goat GLUCoat also has the Cellarator technology as it contains the active ingredient Cell-rate, which aids in the process of cellular replication, supports the animal’s immune system, lowers stress levels, and aids in muscle and fat development. • Sheep/Goat GLUCoat has a refined flavored fish oil that contains the highest levels of Omega 3 Fatty Acids for joint health and naturally occurring Vitamin E which is great for skin and wool quality. • Sheep/Goat GLUCoat can also increase glucose levels which is stored in the body as fat, giving livestock that bloomier, fuller, softer look while maintaining that hard muscle shape that is demanded in the show ring today. • Sheep/Goat GLUCoat is molasses based and sweet to the taste, sheep and goats love it!

For ordering this product, visit our website, www.naturalsolutionsforlivestock.com, for a dealer locator or go to our National Distributors -

618.546.5035

SHEEP/GOAT GLUCoat is the next level or generation to a fat source or supplement. You will never use a fat product again! Your sheep or goat will feel better, act better and their eating habits will change. SHEEP/GOAT GLUCoat WILL KEEP YOU READY FOR THE RING!! THE SHOWBOX | july 2011

QR Codes Introducing QR Codes to the Livestock Industry Have you noticed the “black and white boxes” that have started to show up in printed materials? The Showbox is right on board with this latest trend! Many magazines on the rack at your local supermarket have already began to implement this technology.

What is a QR code? A QR or “Quick Response” code, also known as a 2D barcode, gives users information on their smart phone or cell phone in an instant. In the simplest sense, think “print-based link to web.” QR codes were created in Japan in 1994 and have spread across Asia and Europe and are gaining popularity and usage in the United States. Decoding software interprets the codes, which represent considerably more information than a one-dimensional code of similar size. If you see these QR codes, you take a photo through an application on your smart phone or cell phone, the program analyzes or “scans” the barcode, and it asks if you’d like to be redirected to a web address/URL.

Can I use QR codes on my phone? Because this technology is relatively new, there is no standard program or 96 july 2011 | THE SHOWBOX

application for you to use. iPhones® and BlackBerrys® accommodate QR scanning applications quite easily and have very inexpensive (or even free) downloads available from their respective application stores. Even some cell phones allow it. Here is a website that will allow you to see if your phone is compatible and even download a code reader to get started: www.mobile-barcodes. com/qr-code-software.

How do I get a QR Code in my ad in The Showbox? A QR code can be generated and placed into your ad that will allow readers to be linked directly to the details that you chose — ranging from a web address/URL, an e-mail address, a phone number, video link, or just plain text.

s I boarded the plane for Barcelona, my expectations for the next two weeks were of sparkling Italian beaches, sinful pasta, and of the luxurious waste of time as I wandered the countryside of mythological Gods and their Mediterranean haunts. A history buff, I planned each day’s excursions by books that filled my childhood, and looked forward to absorbing one of the most beautiful places on earth. As I proofed my journal and cataloged photos, I realized that while my vacation hopes were answered (most days more spectacular than the previous), I had returned to Texas a transformed soul. I arrived home amazed of how much has changed in this new world we live, and with a new understanding of how lucky you and I are to live in these United States. I disembarked with a new appreciation of what a privilege it is to make a living in production agriculture. And, as I arrived back in Texas, I overwhelmingly understood that if you love this way of life and

Editor’s Note: The following article was contributed by Cathy Schroeder of Taylor. Cathy and her son, Reagan, and several members of the Showbox staff spent two weeks in Europe on a Mediterranean cruise. During the cruise, Cathy and I had the opportunity to talk about the differences in our way of life compared to the Europeans. This article and photos are the result of that discussion. all that it creates, you and I had better start doing all we can to preserve our rights, this lifestyle, and its agricultural legacy. Lexington, Texas provided endless opportunities for dreamers, as the only amenity for the Buetow girls was a black–and–white television that carried three stations. My dyed–in–the–wool Democratic parents worked hard, and thought it was their duty to expose their daughters to as many experiences as possible. Because of these values, we experienced many situations that a town of 712 people would have thought precocious. These experiences fostered the next generation of hard working, world navigators that commute with ease. And, because we are Americans, we possess that certain swagger that most abroad recognize. Raised by family that milked cows and churned butter 365 days of the year, my sisters and I joined our grandparents most mornings for Velma’s homemade biscuits, even during the school THE SHOWBOX | july 2011

year. The meats we ate were cared for and processed by family. Each McDonald’s in Rome. generation gardened, preserved, and learned to respect the process that allowed us to flourish. One of my grandfathers registered his last litter of pigs, Buetow’s Beauties, with the Duroc Jersey Swine Record in 1918. Another imported some of the first cattle from Europe into Central Texas. I married into a family that implemented these practices on larger scales, and because of their work ethic, all Schroeders calve cows, farrow sows, drive tractors, and work with the best. We continue to preserve our own grape juice, pickles and jams. And, although I laugh when friends call me a food snob, the reality is that it was how I was raised. The point I am making is that while I may be anal about what my family eats, I’m like most of you who wake everyday baling hay, checking heats, or feeding stock that allow us to make our living in agriculture. I fill out my FSA papers, pay the fertilizer bill, and order diesel, just like you. And, until I set foot on that very big boat in Barcelona, Spain, may have taken this special way we live, for granted. The Amalfi Coast of the Mediterranean is stunningly beautiful.

biblical and literary writings magnificently, and validates Romulus, Caesar, and Nero’s records of immortality with an out–of–this–world reality that I only recognized as it smacked me square in the face. A jaded traveler, nothing prepared me for the natural beauty I woke to every morning, or warned me of the feeling I would experience as the hair on my neck stood as I saw these sights. Capturing the beauty of Mount Vesuvius while inhaling the lemon–scented, history–soaked breeze of Pompei is a feeling I hope I’ll never forget, because photographs just don’t do justice. While our days were filled exploring ancient food markets, retracing John the Baptist’s steps, honoring Raphael’s tomb at the Pantheon, and searching for Spartacus’ name carved into gladiator quarters, our nights were spent mingling with strangers, who, after realizing we were Americans, initiated one of the most valued, and grateful of all lessons. The American food supply is the safest, most economically produced, readily available source in this world. And, while I understand that the average American consumer doesn’t care why this fact is true, what I failed to grasp, was just how many people you and I see each day who never experience the reasons we choose to make our living at the mercy of a cow, sow, or Mother Nature. These folks have never watched as a heifer delivered her first calf, smelled fresh cut hay, or danced in the rain because it saved your bottom line. They aren’t aware that the FDA, USDA, FSA, and other agencies, implement rules and regulations that farmers and ranchers follow to ensure we have the best of food situations. Most are too busy to understand that you and I are good enough at our jobs that we subsidize their budgets. Because our grandparents’ fine–tuned legacies that gave us so many freedoms, we enjoy, expect, and sometimes take for granted the lifestyle that was created for us. After many lively discussions, my new friends (made on the boat) would remind me of this fact, and help me understand why the rest of the world considers Americans, spoiled, smug, and headed down the same paths they had fled. While most of the travelers on the Italian–built ship were seasoned European cruisers, Americans Artichokes. were the minority, as ranchers we were unique.

usually turned to the same topics. None had seen a live cow, knew anyone who owned more than an acre, an oil well, or a combine, and all were amazed at how cheap our food was. McDonald’s was their definition of abundance at its finest, and Wal-Mart, nirvana. Many claiming to be Russian, Italian, or Japanese actually lived in the states. Our conversations would progress to the situations that allowed them to leave their homes, why they chose America, and what could happen if the current political climate didn’t change. They were as interested as to why we flushed cows, froze embryos, and showed calves, as I was of why they never wanted to return to their birthplaces. Without exception, all were grateful they lived in the United States, and told us how lucky we were to have been born American. As I thought about the Italian food markets, the 69 euro per kilo hams, the 30 euro salads, and the meats that spurred my vegetarian dining while in Italy, I realized my new friends were right. From the dollar menu at McDonald’s, to $2.99 per pound hams, as a country, we are blessed. This Fourth of July will mean more to the Schroeder family than the last. I’ll bring out the red, white and Fish in Taramina. blue bunting that drapes my balcony to remind all that come to the ranch how proud I am to be an American. I’ll grill white wings with jalapeno jelly, enjoy more than my share of margaritas, and spend this time celebrating the very folks that made this day possible. Our generation is the newest stewards of these lands. My hope is that you will celebrate the accomplishments we have made, and nurture the responsibilities that are necessary to allow the next generation the same legacy. God bless the USA!

‹ outhern‹ S And proud of it!

Southern women know everybody’s first name: Honey, Darlin’, Shugah. Southern women know the movies that speak to their hearts: Fried Green Tomatoes, Driving Miss Daisy Steel Magnolias, Gone With The Wind. Southern folks know their religions: Baptist, Methodist, Football. Southern folks know their cities dripping with Southern charm: Chawl’stn, S’vanah, Foat Wuth, N’awlins, Addlanna. Southern women know their elegant gentlemen: Men in uniform, Men in tuxedos, Rhett Butler. Southern girls know their prime real estate: The Mall, The Country Club, The Beauty Salon. Southern girls know the three deadly sins: Having bad hair and nails, Having bad manners, Cooking bad food. Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don’t “HAVE” them, you “PITCH” them. Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up “a mess.” Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of “yonder.” Only a Southerner knows exactly how long “directly” is, as in – “Going to town, be back directly.” (“Dreckly” in my family) Even Southern babies know that “Gimme some sugar” is not a request for the white, granular, sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of the table. All Southerners know exactly when “by and by” is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well. Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who’s got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor’s trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin’! 112 july 2011 | THE SHOWBOX

Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between “right near” and “a right fer piece.” They also know that “just down the road” can be one mile or 20. Only a Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a redneck, a good ol’ boy, and po’ white trash.

No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn. A Southerner knows that “fixin” can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb. Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines, .... and when we’re “in line,” we talk to everybody! Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they’re related, even if only by marriage. In the South, y’all is singular, all y’all is plural. Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them. Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food. When you hear someone say, “Well, I caught myself lookin’,” you know you are in the presence of genuine Southerner! Only true Southerners say “sweet tea” and “sweet milk.” Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it – we do not like our tea unsweetened. “Sweet milk” means you don’t want buttermilk. And a true Southerner knows you don’t scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say,”Bless her heart”... and go your own way. To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning, bless your heart!

ƒ

Southern folks know Their summer weather report: Humidity – Humidity – Humidity. Southern folks know their vacation spots: The beach. The rivuh, The crick.

And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff....bless your hearts, I hear they’re fixin’ to have classes on Southernness as a second language! Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah!
