PRESIDENT’S REPORT Bill Campbell Greetings from the Manitoba Limousin Association Now that Blue Monday is behind us we realize that winter is halfover. Every day now gets us closer to spring. For those who have started to calve, let’s hope this favorable weather continues. December and early January sure were miserable! The Manitoba Limousin Association held their annual meeting on January 3, 2017 in Brandon, MB. I am sure the weather had something to do with the lack of attendance but the board still managed to have a very productive meeting. The details will be throughout the News & Views. The board and executive are the same as they were in 2016 with the exception of Darby Cochrane. He has decided to step down due to family obligations. On behalf of the board I would like to thank Darby for all of his support and

dedication while serving his many years on the MLA Board. I would once again like to say Thank You to the sponsors for their support and to the Limousin community for their work to make the National Limousin Show & Sale a success. We are looking for agricultural society invitations to host the annual Limousin Summer Show. Please send applications to me through phone or email so we can make a decision. The big event for the MLA in 2017 is hosting the Canadian Limousin Association Annual Meeting and Canadian Junior Limousin Association Summer Show in Portage La Prairie July 27, 28 and 29, 2017. Your ideas, new concepts and participation would be greatly appreciated as this is a national event. Good luck with calving and bull sales. Bill Campbell MLA President

We are proud to be selected in the 2017 junior clothing draw. Our involvement in the Limousin breed began over 40 years ago, and the future has never been brighter. JYF focuses on d ocility, fertility and cattle with natural muscle expression (that Limo look!). Commercial producers understand the value that a good Limo bull provides and are making the switch back to cross breeding after years of British breed influence. We plan to continue to grow our bull sale numbers to accommodate this demand and look for ward to you joining us the last Monday of Feb (27th this year). We would like to thank the junior board and their advisers for the hard work and dedication to making the events across the countr y a great success. Join us this summer in Manitoba as the Limousin breed takes another step for ward. J. Yorga Farms

MONETARY SCHOLARSHIPS Two (2) $500 scholarships and two (2) $250 scholarships are awarded to CJLA members annually. To apply please e-mail eboon3@hotmail.com describing your involvement in the Limousin breed. Deadline to apply is October 31st annually. Successful applicants will receive their funds in the year they are awarded. As of August 2015, scholarship recipients may only receive a CJLA monetary scholarship once.

Minerals for Beef Cows Joanne Armstrong Jr. Ruminant Nutritionist Landmark Feeds

The nutritional needs of the beef cow will change throughout the production year, due to the changes in biological, chronological and forage cycles. We need to meet the cows requirement to maintain life, support a strong immune system, maximize reproductive success, and improve milk production and calf growth. Cattle that don’t have an adequate mineral program can experience a number of production and health disorders that will significantly reduce herd performance and profitability. We have all heard of these minerals, but do we know what the functions of each of these minerals are and what the appropriate levels are to support the nutritional needs of animals. In this article, we are going to focus on the macro minerals, their functions, and the requirement of beef cows. Table 1. Minerals Cattle Need Macro Minerals Micro Minerals Calcium Copper Phosphorous Zinc Magnesium Manganese Salt Cobalt Sulfur Iodine Potassium  Iron   Selenium CALCIUM AND PHOSPHOROUS Calcium and phosphorous go hand in hand, therefore we will look at these two minerals together. The major role of calcium in the body is the formation of bones, teeth and milk, as well as an important role in muscle function. Phosphorus is also involved in the formation of bone, as well as energy metabolism and QUICK FACT: genetic material. Cattle should consume Most grasses are adequate in 11 to 15 grams of salt per day. calcium. Legumes are a good source of calcium, but small grain forages such as corn silage are poor sources of calcium. In general, most grains are relatively poor calcium sources. Most forages are low in phosphorus, particularly late in the growing season. Cattle are more likely to be phosphorus-deficient during the winter, when they often subsist on dry forages. Grains contain moderate to high concentrations of

phosphorus. Proteins such as soybean meal contain moderate concentrations, whereas byproducts such as distillers grains have high phosphorus concentrations. From mid to late pregnancy, a bred cow’s requirement for calcium increases by 22% and after calving, by an additional 40%. A superior milking cow requires three times more calcium than a non-lactating cow. If the ration is inverted (phosphorus exceeds calcium), absorption of calcium in the digestive tract is reduced, and calcium and phosphorus will be metabolized from the bone. This can result in less bone growth, brittle bones, and “water belly” or kidney stones. SODIUM AND CHLORIDE Sodium and chloride work together to maintain cellular volume, pH and osmorlarity of body fluids, such as blood. Sodium chloride (salt) promotes water intake, which will help maintain or improve milk production and overall herd health. Forages and grains do not contain enough salt to meet the needs of livestock, with the exception of silage produced on land fertilized by manure which can increase salt content of forage, or marsh hay. Deficiency symptoms can result in loss of appetite, decrease in body condition and a drop in QUICK FACT: milk production. Cattle require 0.6 to 0.7%K in POTASSIUM the ration (DM) Most forages are 1 – 2% Potassium works in conjunction with where as cereal sodium in the body to transport nutrigrains are 0.3 – 0.36% ents into and out of cells. Potassium also helps to maintain the osmotic pressure. Most forages are adequate to excessive in potassium content, and the needs of grazing cattle are generally met. Potassium can be high in some cool-season grasses and legumes , which can decrease the absorption of magnesium, therefore causing grass tetany. QUICK FACT: High concentrate diets Optimal Ca:P Ratio can be low in potassium, 2:1 as corn grain and most corn by-products are low in potassium, therefore supplementing potassium is needed. Deficiencies in potassium can result in reduced intake, weight loss, and stiff joints. MAGNESIUM Magnesium is essential for proper enzyme and nervous system function and for efficient carbohydrate metabolism. Magnesium is an important mineral for grazing cattle because of the association with grass tetany. Grass tetany is usually seen in cattle in the early spring when there is lush grass growth and cool, wet weather and is caused by a deficiency of magnesium to the cattle. It has been observed that a high rate of nitrogen and potassium fertilization contributes to grass tetany. The excess potassium inhibits magnesium absorption in both forage and co ntinued page 22

animals. Mature lactating cows are particularly susceptible to grass tetany. Magnesium deficiency can cause reduced calving rates, calf vigor and rate of gain in calves. SULFUR Sulfur is an essential nutrient required for normal growth and reproduction of bacteria in the rumen of cattle. Sulfur is essential for rumen microbial synthesis of certain amino acids, vitamins and enzymes. In order for these nutrients to be synthesized in the rumen, sulfur must be present in the diet. Sulfur concentration in feedstuffs and water will depend on location, therefore it is important to analyze feedstuffs and water to know how much cattle are consuming. Excess sulfur will have negative effects on herd performance including sulfur toxicity and polioencephalomalacia (PEM) or polio. PEM can cause cattle to experience blindness, un-coordination, lethargy and seizures. High levels of sulfur in diets will usually result in reduced performance such as a fall in milk production and weight loss, however in extreme cases in can cause death. In summary, knowing what you have in your forages and concentrates is crucial to ensuring that you are delivering a balanced diet to your beef cows.
