We feel a great deal of pride in inviting everyone to the MJT dispersal sale. The MJT “Back to the Basics Bull Sale” has been at the core of our family and our operation for 19 years. The complete cowherd dispersal on December 4th will mark a major change for all of us at MJT. There is no doubt that the “Back to the Basics” moniker has been at the center of our breeding philosophy. It has always been about soundness, udder quality and fertility. We know it takes a great mother cow to raise a great herd sire and we have earned 100% of our income from selling herd sires. We have countless buyers that have told us the bulls they buy here are the soundest, longest lasting and surest breeding bulls they have ever owned. Our policy has always been a “no questions asked” guarantee and having three or four replacements a year out of 120 bulls isn’t bad. We have been breeding Hereford cattle for a long time and have witnessed the positives and negatives of change. At no time however have we felt the quality in the breed to be so strong or the usefulness to the industry so great. Commercial buyers recognize that longevity, docility, fertility and heterosis play a substantial role in an operation’s sustainability. In our herd sires we have placed emphasis on moderating frame but increasing volume and thickness. We have also selected for good hair coats, solid markings, eye pigment and moderate birth weights. The cows are similarly rated but must be great mothers, have no fault udders and milk well while remaining fertile enough to re-breed under below average range conditions. Lots of “good ones” have left the farm, but if the management requires production on minimal inputs then the selection process for suitable genetics must be done without compromise. The genetics are able to compete in the show ring but that wasn’t the goal when breeding them. Raising stout, sound and heavy bulls always has been. When buying at the MJT dispersal you have the opportunity to buy our very best. Every cow and bred heifer sells. We are retaining only the heifer calves that will be the beginning of a new chapter for the next generation around here.

Never has a single cow at MJT been made available for breeder sale prior to this dispersal. This is the only chance you will ever get to access these outstanding and dependable matrons. From the beginning we have retained the females, tested their production and culled hard. Today it is reflected in the outstanding quality of the calves that these young cows can raise. Last year 20% of the bulls that sold in our sale were from first calf heifers. It is obvious that these cows can milk when you look at the weaning weights but there are no swing bags in the cow herd. The culling pressure here is extremely high and you will see for yourself the proof on sale day. A great cowherd with the fundamentals and proven track record of raising year after year the bulls it takes to make one of the strongest bull sales in the country. December 4th marks an opportunity to add genetics you can trust. The kind of females you can breed any way you like and the result will be a keeper and quite possibly a sale topper. Do not hesitate to keep a herd bull or replacement female from any cow in this sale, you will not be disappointed and the value will rise through every phase of production. You won’t be able to wait for calving season!

You Ought To Know. . . for years my wife hated football. Whether it was the sight of me glued to the television for three to four hours coaching from the couch or my dominance of the channel changer, weekend viewing of sports always had its moments. Since I have some “red-neck” tendencies, the choice between watching “Gone with the Wind” or “Friday Night Football” is a no-brainer. Now I have an advantage over other men with the same scenario... we live in Saskatchewan... the home of the “Green and White,” the originators of the “thirteenth man” and a sold out stadium which is a sea of green. In a province with just over a million people but growing rapidly (thanks to a change in government), from the month of July through to the week of Agribition, the weekend mind set to most is green. Now I do not really know whether it is the clerks, waitresses, attendants and bank employees wearing “Rider” green on Fridays throughout the weekend or whether it is Tina’s fanatic loyalty to the “Green and White,” but all of a sudden, my wife started watching football and not only Rider games but even the NFL... the strange part is that we have more than one television in our house. (She hates baseball because it is boring and states, “All they do is spit and scratch.”) So as we watch a game together, she asks a lot of questions about the complex game of football... what is the difference between a field goal and a convert... what is a blitz... what is grounding the football... what is a sack... why do the Americans have four downs and so on. I try explain to her that football is a game of teamwork and without it, a team will not succeed and losing teams eventually run out of fans and their support. A quarterback or running back who gets the most press after a game, can only be successful if the offensive line does its job.

In football there is no “I”... whether you are a head coach, a play coach, a passer, runner or blocker, it takes a coordinated effort by an entire team to maintain fans presence and support. After viewing a game or two, she stated, “They have to be young and dedicated if the Riders are to win the Grey Cup.” The purebred livestock industry has a lot of similarities to that of the game of football. Most breeders are like the fans of the “Riders,” dedicated to their breed and their cause. Through good and bad years, they support their breed and look forward to the future. Some go to other teams (breeds) hoping to be a part of a winning combination as they lose confidence in their team, while others get old and just retire. Like a football team, the purebred livestock breed’s success and future is based on youth and dedication. It’s a young person’s game to go to shows and exhibit cattle promoting their program and breed. But as they strive through risk and reward, they need to have a voice in it if you want them to continue with the team. Times are changing in many areas whether it be communications or demographics. In the purebred industry, since our big rainout (BSE), we have fewer fans, less ticket sales and the remaining fans are paying more to keep their game alive. Fresh ideas and enthusiasm would be a welcome addition to the team, as the team is ready to outgrow the former and current mandate. Although football is a complicated sport compared to others, our directors and fans all can learn the simple basics from it. Maybe a lesson could be learned from the Blue Bombers... my wife asks me, “Who knows that?”

As OAS embarked on the production of a new fall beef show in 2010 under the direction of our President Curtis Flewelling, our beef cattle committee was eager to establish an award that celebrated the industry we all love and the visionary leaders that influence and inspire us as producers. In selecting the honoree each year, we are compelled to consider the events that have impacted the industry in a manner that establishes a legacy, defines the quality and integrity of our product. In 2012 there is no doubt that the most significant event in the beef cattle industry was the World Hereford Conference. OAS is extraordinarily proud to have been the host venue for the show component of the World Hereford Conference. And although there were many twists and turns in the journey to host this internationally renowned event, one noteworthy family remained steadfast in their dedication not only to the Conference, but also with their confidence in OAS’ capabilities. It is with tremendous pride that OAS presents the 2012 Olds Fall Classic Industry Leadership Award to Flewelling Cattle Co. – Craig and Doreen Flewelling, Curtis, Erin, Nathan and Avery Flewelling. Flewelling Cattle Co. is a family owned and operated Polled Hereford operation in the Bowden area with over thirty years of experience in breeding top quality cattle. Craig began his relationship with Hereford cattle in 1978 as manager of Kilmorlie Farms. The Flewelling family focuses on superior genetics and has developed an elite herd of 30 cows. Their philosophy with their program is to create predictable cow families with exceptional phenotype and genetic merit. Flewelling Cattle Co. genetics can be found in Canada, United States, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Guatemala. Being recognized as remarkable cattle producers is only one aspect of this multi-dimensional family. They take the promotion and elevation of the cattle industry, their communities and their relationships to great heights. The Flewelling family works hard, plays hard, and inspires others in their quest to excel in business, the showring, in the sales ring, on the golf course, in the hockey arena, in the curling rink, on the baseball diamond and anywhere else there is a challenge to be met and an opportunity for innovation and leadership. Dynamic industry leaders like the Flewelling’s possess the strength to give 100 percent in all their endeavors and we, their colleagues, friends and associates benefit from their leadership, commitment and integrity. John Quincy Adams, the sixth American President of United States, said over two hundred years ago, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” Truly, a relevant and timely description of our 2012 Olds Fall Classic Industry Leadership Award recipients – Flewelling Cattle Co.

Re-sil-ient 1.

Spring back; rebounding

2. Returning to the original form or position after being bent, compressed, or stretched. 3. Recovering readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyant. Resilient is the word that I feel best describes the Canadian beef industry. For the last nine years our industry and its members have been bent, compressed and stretched and yet we are readily recovering from our depression and adversity. When BSE was discovered back in 2003, our cull cow market dropped to a dime and stayed there for quite some time. The calf market through that era varied from soft to dam poor! In the last few weeks, Canadian beef producers have held their breath watching to see how the largest recall of beef in our history would affect us. Cows dropped two dimes and already are showing signs of strengthening and the calf market has shown little to no effect. So what does the future hold? The market place is telling us we do not have enough cattle and the consumer is not abandoning us. Both the feeder and fat future markets have posted rallies in the last few days. Profitable contracts for fat cattle with delivery in the New Year and into spring are being offered. Further to the phenomenon, we have the highest grain prices in history, forcing the feedlots to try some creative rations to keep the ink black. However, they are still buying top quality calves for top dollar and are able to pencil a profit, which in the end comes down to supply and demand. Demand that may have wavered a little but still remains strong and trendy, against a supply that has definitely eroded over the past nine years, as not all producers had the ability or desire to remain resilient. The fact remains that throughout the world the human population continues to grow and they need protein to survive. Beef is seen as a desirable choice, people love to eat it, and they do not purchase it because it’s good for them (which it is) or because it is something they cannot live without. They buy it because they like it, and as more people living in suppressed countries become more and more affluent, they choose to buy beef over other protein sources. In this time of more questions than answers, I suggest to everyone involved to remain resilient. The breeding decisions you make today will be marketed in two years time on a market that will have even more demand and we all know in the beef business it takes a lot longer than that to increase supply by any significance.

A Family Advent ure

1967 Edmonton Klondike Days Grand Champion Bull

bull MT Tribune Lord Vern 5X was named the Grand Champion Bull at Edmonton Klondike Days.  Lord Vern was sired by an English import, Wenlock Tribune, and went on to become one of the most popular sires of his time.  Mike and Barbara raised seven children, five girls and two boys.  As time went on, it was evident that Mike had passed his love and knowledge of the Hereford breed and the ranching way of life on to his second youngest, Mick.  Mick was an avid 4-H member and soon started accumulating Hereford cattle of his own.  Mick’s keen enthusiasm for the business was noticed by Wilf Edgar Sr. of LRD Herefords.  When Wilf would attend Mike Trefiak’s production sales he would ask young Mick to show him the cattle.  He knew that Mick knew all the cows and their bloodlines.  “I used to show him through the cattle on sale day,” Mick recalls. “One year he bought one of Dad’s heifers and gave her to me.  He was Mick Showing at impressed with how well I Lloyd Bull Sale knew the cows, and he said I would do more with her than he could.  I sold the first bull out of that heifer at the Wainright Bull Sale for $430.00!” Young Mick Trefiak probably had the best day of his life when he met the 1976 Wainright Rodeo Queen and Miss Rodeo Canada contender, Debbie Anderson! They were both out with friends looking for Saturday night entertainment in Wainright, and Deb admits that as a teenager, the out of town boys always seemed more attractive!  Deb was raised on a mixed farm (grain and commercial cattle) near the small village of Gilt Edge about 17 km northeast of Wainright. Her parents, Tiny and Eleanor Anderson raised three children.  Deb is the oldest and she has a younger brother, Bob, and a younger sister Teri.

Mick proposed to Deb when she was in Grade 12, and they married the following year, 1977.  Deb will never forget their first Christmas morning together.  Mick went out to do chores, so Deb rushed around making a special breakfast, champagne and all!  As the breakfast hours passed, and there was no sign of Mick, Deb’s enthusiasm was dashed.  Well, when Mick showed up at the door, he was fairly nonchalant about telling her he had been coyote hunting.  She shook it off and they ing Mick & Deb’s Wedd exchanged gifts.  Can 1977 you imagine her excitement when she opened her gift from Mick to find a shiny new leather bull halter!  Deb had been raised with commercial cattle and had never haltered a bull.  This was obviously a sign of the future!  However, Mick has redeemed himself over the years by designing Debbie a handmade card for every special occasion! For a time, they lived on the Mike Trefiak farm in a home next to Mick’s parents, but they eventually moved north a few miles and set out on their own under the name of MJT Cattle Co. Ltd.  The base of their operation came from the Mike Trefiak herd and they kept building their herd from there.  The MJT ranch is located 14 miles east of Wainright and 11.5 miles north.  It is a beautiful section of Alberta, predominantly grain country with gently rolling hills and a good water supply isn’t an issue with the Battle River meandering through their property. Deb and Mick have two children.  Kurt was born in 1979 and Kristi in 1980.   Both Kurt and Kristi were enthusiastic 4-H members showing steers and heifers, as well as competing

Kristi still keeps purebreds of her own at MJT and both Kristi and Mark help out on the ranch when they can.     In 1994, Kurt and Kristi talked their parents into introducing another breed to the ranch.  Deb and Mick agreed on the condition that it would be a compatible breed to raise alongside the Herefords.  Kurt and Kristi bought their first Black Angus heifers in the Hay Shaker Sale from KBJ Round and Ernie Gibson. 

in Team Judging competitions and exhibiting in Junior Provincial Shows such as the Bashaw Heifer Show.  Kurt is a past member of the Northern Alberta Hereford Club and acted as the Hereford Breed Representative at Edmonton Farmfair International.  Kurt started the now very popular Hereford Genes Event at Farmfair.  Both Kurt and Kristi have the same fondness for the industry as their parents.  Kurt graduated from NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) in Edmonton as an Instrumentation Engineer and now owns his own company called Total Analytical Consulting Inc.  Kurt and his wife, Shannon, who is a part-time nurse at Wainright Public Health, have three sons.  Matthew is eleven years old, Ryan is four, and Casey is 18 months.  The boys love the ranch and the animals, and they are already the fourth generation Trefiaks in the purebred business.  Kurt and Shannon built their home on the farm overlooking the Battle River and just a few miles from Deb and Mick.  Kurt can manage his business from home as well as partner with his parents in MJT.

Kurt & Kristi’s first 4-h animals

Today, MJT Cattle Co. Ltd. has 120 Hereford cows and 300 predominantly Black Angus females.  They have 19 quarters of land utilized for their own use as silage, hay, pasture, and a small amount of grain.  To date, they have hosted 18 “MJT Back to the Basics” bull sales on the farm held the second Saturday of February.  Kurt Trefiak named his business, Total Analytical Consulting Inc. after one of his bulls, MJT Century 264P (Total) that sold in their 2006 Back to the Basics sale.  Total was the highest selling bull in Canada that year.   When I visited with the Trefiaks, both Deb and Mick felt they were fortunate to have a herd they are proud of and that has sustained them through droughts and BSE, and they still averaged $3,000 on their bulls during the tough times, and they haven’t had to sell their females to keep the ranch going.  Most of all, they credit their loyal clients for their success.  They have several who have purchased bulls at all 18 of their sales, and one client in particular, Stan Jacobs, from Douglas Lake Cattle Co. that has the confidence in their breeding program to have purchased 83 bulls from MJT.  That is definitely a testament to the quality and predictability of their product!

The Trefiaks admit that they have spent most of their lives working on the ranch, and Deb feels fortunate that she has never had to work off the ranch.  From when the children were old enough, they have worked and played as a family, and everyone has input in the decision making.  “The kids have been our help,” Deb tells me.  “Kurt was baling at ten and Kristi would drive us around to pick up bales.”  This fall, young four year old Ryan gave his grandmother a lesson on how to unplug the header on the new self-propelled combine!

Branding

Working cattle on horseback is a necessity and a natural way of life on the ranch.  Mick buys colts and trains them himself, and they keep about ten good working quarter horses at a time.  They help out their neighbours during branding season, and Mick estimates he attends at least a half dozen brandings in a season.  Both Mick and daughter Kristi like to participate in ranch rodeos.  The Trefiaks have created their own holiday hideaway for fun with family and friends.  They have a “Hacienda” as they affectionately refer to it, down along the Battle

From the time they were married, Deb and Mick have been an inseparable team setting goals and living an adventure, raising a family and working the cattle and the land.  Deb does the bookkeeping, and keeps the cattle records as well as organizing the sale catalogues ready for press.  She helps with vaccinating, tattooing, weighing, dehorning, pregnancy checking and silaging.  She does field work, sorts cattle, calves cows and anything else that needs doing.  She gardens and makes jams, pickles and salsa.  She cooks and bakes for her family, visitors, sale crews and for sale day meals.  Deb will be the last to admit that she has talents other than farming, but when you enter her yard and her home it is undeniable that she is

The Trefiaks are proud members of their community of Rosedale, and Deb takes part to make the Annual Chicken Supper a success.  Deb is also a past 4-H Crafts Leader and Mick is a past president of the Edgerton Agricultural Society.  He is also a past president and director of the Northern Alberta Hereford Club.  

In 1991 Deb and Mick Trefiak were named the Outstanding Young Farmers of Alberta.  It is an achievement attained by few in the farming community.  Nominees are judged on the progress they have made during their farming career, maximum utilization of soil, water and energy conservation practices, crop and livestock production history, and contributions to the well-being of the community, province Mick and Deb accepting and nation.   the

a very conscientious, meticulous and artistic person, and it is obvious that both Deb and Mick care deeply for their family, their ranch, their cattle, and their way of life.  The purebred Hereford and Angus industry has awarded the Trefiaks a way of life they cherish, lifelong friendships they have cultivated, and memories to last a lifetime.   This year, the Trefiak family made a difficult decision to disperse their purebred cow herd.  Their plan is to explore the commercial side of the industry, and they are retaining 200 of their heifer calves to start their new adventure.  Deb and Mick invite you to join them on December 4, 2012 to celebrate their 19th sale held on the ranch… The MJT Cattle Company Ltd.

Our Sympathies J. Edward Jupp passed away on September 8, 2012 in Edmonton, Alberta. He is survived by his loving wife of forty-four years, Lynne and daughter Jill Taylor, son-in-law James Taylor and two grandsons, Michael and Justin, two brothers and two sisters in England, along with many nieces and nephews. Edward was born in Kings Lynn, in the county of Norfolk, England. At the age of eighteen, Edward enlisted in the British Army for a short time, then joined the Indian Army and spent a two year tour of duty in India. On his return, he worked as a produce wholesaler but after a short illness, chose to change his profession and decided to try his luck in Canada. Edward immigrated to Canada in 1953 and was employed by Walter Olson, Fairview Stock Farm; a prominent Hereford breeder at Arcola, Saskatchewan. He worked as herdsman/manager; fitting, showing and marketing the great Fairview Polled Hereford herd. In 1965, Keith Gilmore, editor and publisher of the Canadian Hereford Digest offered him the position of field man, which he retained for two and one half decades, promoting the Hereford breed and its patrons, logging over two million miles behind the wheel. Edward lived in Saskatoon but soon after retirement, moved to Sherwood Park, Alberta to be nearer his family and grandchildren. James Edward Jupp set a standard of excellence in marketing and breed dedication which will never be surpassed. For some of us, he will never be forgotten. Memorial donations may be made to The Keith Gilmore Foundation, 5160 Skyline Way N.E., Calgary, Alberta T2E 6V1. Robert Allen Zoeteman, Fort MacLeod, Alberta passed away peacefully with family by his side after a courageous battle with Leukemia on Friday, March 9, 2012 at the age of seventy years. Robert is survived by his loving wife of fifty-one years, Fern and their three sons: Leroy (Jana), Stuart (Sherri) and Jason (Lisa). Cherished Grandpa to Chantel (Eric), Justin (Desiree), Brittany, Corbin, Mercedes and Great Grandpa to Eliza, Vanessa and Nora Dyson. Robert originally raised Horned Herefords with his father Isaac and brothers Sam and Larry in the community of Pearce, along the Oldman River east of Fort MacLeod, Alberta. Robert with his wife Fern, established the Bar-RZ Polled Hereford program, just a of couple miles north from the original home place. Robert was a 4-H member and leader with the Fort MacLeod Beef Club. He was an active Southern Alberta Hereford member showing cattle at the Calgary Stampede, Lethbridge Livestock Show and other shows in the south; in addition, Robert hosted numerous tours at the farm over the years. Bob served as a board member with the Southern Alberta Cattle Breeders and consigned to numerous bull sales in and around Southern Alberta. Robert’s retired years were spent in the tractor or curling. In 2009, Robert won the Alberta Master Curling Championship with his men’s team. They went on to win third place at the nationals in Nanimo, British Columbia. Robert Zoeteman was a fine cattleman and a great gentleman who will be truly missed. Herefords Today Fall 2012  39
