Dave’s Desk

ere's been a lot of talk lately about who did what and when and just how important that event or action or that person has been to the Canadian Angus industry. In our history there are many who have made a significant contribution to the breed and the direction it has taken. Sadly, some of those people have

recently been lost but we will remember and honour their endeavours and accomplishments. And yes, there will be many more who will define the direction we take in the future - we very much appreciate their leadership, service and commitment. But no matter the impact made by any individual there is only one entity that has remained constant over the years and deserves the bulk of the credit the Angus breed itself. e single most important reason we are in the position we are today is because Angus meet the requirements of today's marketplace. Consumers are king and they have spoken loud and clear with their hard earned dollars. Angus is what they want: in their burgers (and even hot dogs), served at their restaurants, available at their grocers and in their freezers. Lots of other branded beef products have been launched over the years but few have enjoyed the longevity associated with their Angus counterparts. Angus brand success all goes back to the Angus

cow, the Angus bull and the progeny they produce, the desired carcass traits, the marbling and tenderness of the finished product. is is what first got the packers and commercial industry hooked on Angus and still provides plenty of motive for a strong Angus influence in any herd. ere are good animals in all breeds and each one has a role to play in the beef industry. But there is a reason why almost every other beef breed out there has made an effort to look as much like Angus as possible, or promote how well they cross with our breed. However, looking like and "being" like are never the same thing. at's where those little green tags become so important in identifying true Angus genetics. A fairly large and successful company coined a phrase a few years back that still resonates today: "It's the real thing". Angus IS the real thing and we have the breed itself to thank for that. Now, go give your Angus mommas and papas a treat.

BIXS Launch Underway

Last month the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) had wrapped up producer testing of the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) and was on the cusp of staged launch to industry. BIXS is the voluntary national web-based platform for individual animal birthdate, health, genetic, performance and carcass data to move back and forth across the beef supply chain linked to the animal’s CCIA tag number. Only those program participants who have registered the tag number to their BIXS account get to see the data thus keeping the exchange system secure as well as maintaining producer confidentiality.

Cow-calf producers from Ontario and all western provinces to BC took part in the testing which stretched over 3 months this past spring. It was the third beta test of the project to date. Evaluation and feedback from testers is being used to refine the data submission grid and program function leading up to launch this fall. At present the CCA is currently launching in a staged manner starting first with platform partner databases like the Canadian Beef Breeds Council member breeds which includes the Angus community, Pfizer Gold, Beef Improvement Opportunities, and BeefBooster. Larry Thomas, national coordinator of the BIXS program, says a staged start makes sense with such a massive undertaking. “We know there will be hiccups during the start-up phase and it’s best to work through that process with those partner programs and producers that have the IT and database experience,” he says. “Once we get through the initial launch with our partners we’ll open it up to cow-calf producers across Canada on high speed Internet connections hopefully early this fall and then shortly after that those producers on what we’d call ‘good’ dial-up connections.” Thomas notes that there could be challenges servicing producers on slow or intermittent dial-up

Angus World

connections. To accommodate those producers the CCA is ensuring access to BIXS can happen through a third party individual, organization or company and BIXS will carry a listing service on their website providing contacts for third party BIXS access service providers. This is also a route for those producers with older computer systems or who don’t really like using computers and such. Thomas notes the program was built based on cow-calf and feedlot producer advice through a steering group over the past 16 months or more. The tester feedback has been crucial in refining the program to fit the needs and capabilities of producers first and foremost. “This is just the beginning of what BIXS can become,” Thomas says. “On a national voluntary scale there really isn’t anything like it anywhere. The potential in terms of putting the Canadian beef industry at the forefront on technology and individual animal data and information flow basis is huge.” For more information and launch updates on BIXS visit their website at

Cedar Creek and Rancher Endorsed Angus Beef “Respect the land, honor tradition, pursue perfection.” This is the philosophy that Senator Ross Fitzpatrick and son Gordon have built their award-winning CedarCreek Estate Winery on in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Established in 1986, CedarCreek Estate Winery is the fulfillment of Senator Fitzpatrick’s dream of owning an orchard and a small winery near Kelowna. The winery was once owned by pioneering viticulturist J.W. Hughes who planted grapes in the ‘30s. Today, there are four unique vineyard sites totaling 150 acres on bench lands overlooking the lakes of the valley. The Fitzpatrick’s are celebrating 20 years of being certified with the Vintners’ Quality Alliance. Much like the green Angus tag, the VQA symbol on a bottle of Canadian wine assures the consumer of quality production, content, varietal percentage, appellation, and vintage. “Our customers are very sophisticated and they want to know everything they can

about where and how the grapes are grown and how the wine is produced,” says Gordon Fitzpatrick, President of the winery. “The VQA helps us guarantee authenticity and it also helps us connect directly with our customers.” Dedication to authenticity and being able to directly reach consumers were just two of the reasons why CedarCreek has become a partner in the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program. “The Rancher Endorsed program gives us the opportunity to work directly with and build relationships with Canadian Angus producers who are as dedicated as we are in producing the finest product possible,” explains Gordon. “The partnership allows us to build our brand as well as increase the demand for Angus beef products. We make each other look good!” But what’s in it for Angus producers and the Canadian Angus Association? Partnering with CedarCreek offers a unique way to reach more

consumers with the Angus message and have them thinking Angus beef when choosing a wine. And with more consumers choosing Angus beef over other protein alternatives the benefits keep adding up for everyone involved. So the next time you are looking for the perfect wine to pair with Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed beef, pick up a bottle of CedarCreek Pinot Noir, Syrah or Merlot, vintage 2007 from your local wine store. You won’t be disappointed and you have the Fitzpatricks’ word on it. “We believe that we make the very best wines in the Okanagan Valley. In fact, we believe our wines are as good as any made in the world but we rather than claim it, we prove it with every bottle. Our wine is our word.” Like a fine Angus steak, roast or prime rib, tasting truly is believing. For more information on CedarCreek, visit To order wine, visit

Pfizer Feedlot Challenge

Pfizer wanted to do something different and, recognizing the benefit of education and the importance of supporting feed lot staff on the front line handling animals and administering animal health products on a daily basis, came up with the idea to hold a feed lot challenge. On September 13, 2010, eight teams from feed lots in southern Alberta participated in the event hosted at Easterday Farms. Easterday was selected as Pfizer’s partner for the event because they are taking a progressive approach to animal health. For example, in addition to having a veterinarian and a nutritionist on staff, Easterday works with a cattle handling consultant, Dr. Tom Noffsinger. The competition involved three phases: 1. Written, multiple choice quiz to assess quality assurance practices including injection site choice,

2010 Maritime Commercial Breeder of the Year The 2010 Maritime Aberdeen Angus Association Commercial Breeder of the Year is the Armstrong family of Kingston, Nova Scotia. The Armstrongs are the 10th Maritime family recognized as Commercial Breeder of the year. Richard and his father, Bill, manage farm activities. Their farm Melvern Simmentals is a 200 cow-calf operation. Bill has been in the cattle business all his life and has been on their farm at Spa Springs since a young boy. They finish all their own calves and ship to slaughter direct.

They are shareholders in the Atlantic Beef products plant. They also ship to the local OH Armstrong plant and also to Ontario. They usually run 4 mature bulls and also use AI during breeding season. They purchased their first Angus bull to cross with their Simmental herd 4 years ago and since that time have added 2 more Angus bulls. They use Angus semen extensively as well. They like to use the Angus genetics for ease of calving, vigorous calves with a robust appetite and easy finishing steers.

Richard is actively involved in the Maritime Simmental Association, having held various positions over the years. He and Megan are on the beef committee for the Annapolis Valley Exhibition. Bill prefers to stay home and keep the farm running, but likes to get out and see old friends at the Nappan Bull Sale and the Beef Show at the local exhibition. Megan has done her share of volunteer work for the 4-H program, serving as Secretary of the provincial Leaders Council for several terms and also working on the Royal Beef Heifer Committee for a number of years. Richard , Megan and son Hayden are shown receiving their award from Maritime Angus Association Secretary-Treasurer, Betty Lou Scott, during the Maritime Angus Association Junior Show and Field Day. The Commercial Breeder family receive the C0-0P Atlantic perpetual Trophy, the Farm Focus keeper trophy, as well as monogrammed Angus Association jackets. Maritime Angus breeders congratulate the Armstrongs on being chosen as the 2010 Commercial Breeder of the year.

Herd Bull Options - An Opportunity for Herd Improvement As bulls are being pulled from breeding herds and heading home for the year, it is time for producers to make decisions regarding keeping their breeding bulls or culling them to be replaced next year. Since BSE occurred in Canada, many producers took a straight forward approach to herd bull management at the end of the breeding season. Mature bull prices were so low that as long as a bull remained sound, he would stay in the herd for the next year. 2010 has seen butcher bull prices at high enough levels that the current market creates some options when it comes to evaluating herd bulls. From a cow herd management standpoint, the increased salvage value gives producers an

opportunity to improve the overall cowherd genetics without significant additional expense. To change up the breeding program and introduce new genetics can be the most powerful method of genetic

improvement in the breeding herd. There are several factors to consider when deciding to keep or cull herd bulls. First is whether the farm has the pen space and facilities to winter all the bulls, second is the soundness and body condition at the end of the breeding season, and then a look at the current slaughter bull prices versus the feed and maintenance costs of the bulls through the winter months. Slaughter bull prices have climbed in 2010 as a result of increased demand for trim and grinding product. Although this price increase has resulted in a significant increase in domestic bull slaughter over last year (20,687 head, up 85% over the same time in 2009) the higher price level has held fairly steady. Butcher bull prices in Alberta last week were $69.08/cwt, (up $19.25/cwt over a year ago). Given a mature herd bull weighs 1900 to 2200 pounds, the value of each bull ranges from $1,313 to $1,520 per head. That same bull would consume 2% of their body weight daily in a hay ration through the winter (38-44 lbs per day) at an approximate cost of $1.14 to $1.32 per head per day (assuming an average hay cost of $60/ton). If a bull consumes this much feed starting in the fall until the pastures are green in the spring (assume Oct 15 to May 15 or

210 days) the cost of feed per bull would range from $239 to $277 per head. Further calculations show that the sale value of these bulls plus feed cost savings would leave a minimum of $1,552 to $1,797 to put towards a new bull in the spring. In addition to feed costs, there are also bedding costs, vet and medicine costs, risk of bull injury, mortality, fertility risk over the cold winter, and yardage costs (labor, fuel, utilities, repairs and maintenance, etc.) to carry a bull through the winter. Herd bull economics of higher salvage values plus the feed and maintenance savings listed above creates a nice opportunity to replace a mature bull with a semen tested bull next year. The bottom-line is given the struggles experienced marketing herd bulls post breeding season since 2003, the current economic situation to replace these animals that have been in herds for years, or have been moderate performers, has not been this appealing for years. It is something to consider when making longer term management decisions for the herd, as herd bulls influence overall fertility and production more than any other single animal in the herd. re-printed with permission from Canfax.

Prince Edward Island Gold Show Honorees The PEI Angus Association is proud to announce that Frank and Iva Mutch of Earnscliffe Angus Farm are the 2010 Gold Show Honorees for the Angus show at Old Home Week in Charlottetown on Friday, August 20th.

Frank and Iva have been raising Angus cattle since shortly after they got married in 1955. In fact, Frank and Iva purchased their first purebred Angus cow in 1961. All of their children grew up showing Angus

cattle in 4-H and today some of the children, and grandchildren continue the tradition of breeding and showing Angus cattle. Frank and Iva grew their Purebred Angus herd in the 1970’s and 1980’s to about 50 cows and always had an Angus bull in the pasture. Frank has served as a director for the PEI and the Maritime Angus Association, as well as the Maritime Angus field man. He was also inducted into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1991 for his dedication to the agriculture industry on PEI. Frank and Iva were active around the show circuit for many years, competing at shows all across Eastern Canada, including the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, the Montreal Agricultural show, Atlantic Winter Fair, Old Home Week ; Angus shows in Crapaud, Dundas, Fredericton, St. John, and Windsor; 4-H shows and Maritime Angus Field Days. Their living room wall, filled with Champion photographs dating from the 1960’s all the way to 2001, is a testament in itself to the dedication and success they

have had breeding Angus cattle. They exhibited Angus steers at the PEI Easter Beef Show and Sale, and have sponsored the Champion Angus Perpetual Trophy for the last number of years. They have consigned to Angus sales across the Maritimes including the Maritime Angus Field Day Sale, the Angus in Action Sale, and have sold cattle privately to cattle breeders in six Canadian provinces. Frank and Iva have also been active in their community serving as leaders in the local 4-H club, and Iva keeping active in the Women’s Institute. They were, and still are always ready and willing to help out with community activities if need be. Frank and Iva dispersed their last Angus cow a few years ago, however they still keeps up on all the association happenings and they are a fixture in the stands at any cattle shows going on in the Maritimes. Frank also enjoys checking out the Angus cows in his front field (he likes to claim they are his own!).

Donald “Sandy” Longshore Sandy was born March 7, 1919 at Calgary, Alberta and passed away at home on September 15, 2010 at the age of 91 years. As a young boy he lived in Calgary with his mother and twin sister Dot and older sister Hazel. He then moved to Stettler for a short period of time then on to the original homestead near Byemoor. At the age of 12, Sandy purchased his first cow for $12.00 from money he made trapping weasels. It was a start, not the greatest cow, poor udder. He learned from his mistakes. This marked the beginning of his life as a rancher which he did his entire life. In the years to follow, Sandy and his wife Elsie lived and farmed in the Byemoor Community where they were very active in their community. He loved ranching and the people connected with it. Sandy belonged to the Hereford and Angus Association and established a herd of purebred cattle, first Herefords then Angus identified as Bar-E-L a herd which enjoyed numerous successful champions and sales – a herd respected by many in the industry. As a young man,he was a good athlete and won his share of races. He was a great skater but says he spent more time shoveling snow and than skating. He liked a good movie, hated a bad one – Clint Eastwood and John Wayne were sure bets. Sandy loved music, dancing and a good party. Sandy talked a lot about the ‘30s, how tough it was, no money, little food, poor growing seasons, really hard to make a dollar. These years really shaped his character, honesty, every dollar meant something. He worked for $10 a month plus “room and board”, he said he was grateful for the job. Sandy was never one to be free with

his money, he came by it the hard way. A deal was made on a handshake and you could trust that his word was his bond. He started with nothing, and gradually increased his inventory. Sandy would buy cattle from anyone with some for sale. No auction marts in those days. He would drive them home on horse back, feed them for awhile and then move them to market, usually in Calgary. Sandy quite often paid cash, he said it was easier to make a deal with cash, sometimes a box of chocolates thrown in. Sandy attended Olds College. It was an open winter the first year he attended. His dad told him he would have to come home early, they would be in the field. Sandy replied, “If I started something, I am going to finish it!” He enjoyed his time at college! The first purebreds arrived in late ‘30s early ‘40s. Shorthorns, then horned Herefords. In the early ‘60s he started buying Polled Herefords bulls, he got tired of training horns. The Polled Hereford herd grew to one of the most respected herds in Canada, 50 years of Herefords. The herd named Bar-E-L was Clarence, his dad’s brand and was passed on to Sandy. Years went by, annual sales were held, local bull sales, etc. Sandy loved to tell stories, mostly about events in his life and there were many. Sandy loved boxing – all heavy weights, Joe Lewis, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, He never really liked Ali but he respected him. We always smiled when he said he didn’t really like hockey, too much violence! Sandy always predicted the weather, hot dry summer, long cold winter, deep snow – this year really threw a curve at him, he said the wettest year in 100 years – I think he’s right. Sandy liked to read history, local history of Endiang, Byemoor and Big Valley. Sandy had a gift – water well witching. He did this for many people over the years with excellent results. Sandy loved a good horse but particularly a good team. He took a lot of pride in raising them. He liked the gentle dispositions of Belgian and Percherons; he hated a Clydesdale. He sold many teams that topped sales at Calgary and Stettler horse sales. His trips to Denver, to the National Western Stock Show were eventful. His first trip he was joined by Tommy McCarty – long time friend. They checked in at the Brown Palace, the hotel at the time - $7 a night. The following morning they decided this was out of their league so they went down the street and found a

room for $2 – my how times have changed! In the late ‘80s early ‘90s, the trend was to make cattle bigger and taller, consequently that focus was a poor one, and predictability, soon left our herd and market dried up. Sandy made up his mind to switch to Angus, first some blacks were purchased and then the reds were added, another wise move, one he never regretted. Many friendships were developed along the way, great fun and hospitality was always a draw for Sandy. He always talked about the great cattlemen and friends he admired: John E. Blume, Bill Chapman, Louis Latimer, Jim Brown, Sam Henderson, Shorty Skocdopole and Charlie Mckay, to name a few. The Canadian Hereford Association honored Sandy with his 50 Year Pin. His love for the business was as strong now as it was 50 years ago. A week ago he thought he would like to go to Rob Hamilton’s sale, and Jim King’s dispersal. “I am sure there would be some cattle we could use”, were his words. Sandy was always pleased when the cattle did well in competition or topped sales. This past year, we showed the Reserve Champion Red Angus Bull at the National Western in Denver, he was sure proud of that. The seven banners that Bar-E-L won at the World Angus Forum last summer, he showed to everyone that stopped by. Bar-E-L being named the ‘2009 Alberta Angus Breeder of the Year’ was certainly a direct tribute to Sandy and his dream as a seed stock producer. Sandy is survived by his loving children Don (Helen) Longshore of Red Deer, AB, Wayne (Christine) Longshore of Slave Lake, AB, Doreen (Stewart) Ainsworth of Mayerthorpe, AB, Murray (Arlene) Longshore of Westlock, AB and Dave (Lynne) Longshore of Stettler, AB. Grandchildren Aleah (Chris) Farmer, Cheryl (Neil) Luipasco, Lori (Jeff) Berry, Leanne (Dale) Zukowski, Greg (Tracey) Ainsworth, Donna (Larry) Arthur, Grant (Claire) Ainsworth, Merissa (Chris) Epp, Paige Longshore, Dallas (Eliza) Longshore, Tanis and Jenna Longshore. Great grandchildren Josh, Blake, Madison, Bradley, Mathew, Sydelle, Callie, Cadence, Jade, Shaylyn, Lindsay, Carson, Denver and Oliva as well as numerous cousins, other relatives and many friends. Sandy was predeceased by his loving wife Elsie on November 16, 2005, sisters Hazel and Dorothy and parents Clarence and Elizabeth Longshore.

Manitoba Angus Association Message

Fall has been progressing nicely in Manitoba over the past few weeks. At the time of this writing the rain has seem to stopped and the weather forecast says it should

be clear for the rest of the week. hopefully the weatherman will be right this time. Harvest is about half done in the southern region of the province, but i have herd that the norther half is having a little more trouble due to wet conditions. The price of calves seem to be holding steady, but cull cows and bulls have been dropping a few cents each week. Fall is always an exciting time in Manitoba. On November 4-7 in Brandon we will be having our fall gold show. I am sure there will be a strong turnout this year with some great competition. The Keystone Klassic/ Red coat is also being held together again this year on Dec-4 at the keystone centre in Brandon. The quality of cattle is always outstanding at this sale with

many of the top Manitoba breeders as well as a few breeders from Saskatchewan consigning cattle. Please feel free to contact me to get any information on any events happening this fall in Manitoba, and don't forget we are hosting the AGM and the National Show next year. I am Very excited and glad that we are hosting these two events and hope that everyone will participate in them. I hope the rest of the fall goes will for everyone and i will be happy to see you in Manitoba at some of our events. Shawn Birmingham Manitoba Angus

Ontario Angus Association Message

As summer winds down and fall begins to replace one of the hottest summers in recent memory our clubs in Ontario have been busy manning our Angus booth at a couple of farm shows that take place in Ontario each year. Special thanks to everyone who took time

out of their busy schedule to man these booths for a day or two, and a very special thanks to the members who supplied cattle for these displays. It seems that at these farm shows one of the most asked about topics is the Angus tags. Most people know that they exist but not too many seem to use them or know how to access them. When you do explain how to access the tags I’m not sure that we have convinced them how easy it is to get them. I’m sure that most people we talk to will still make the trip to the local farm store just because it’s easier to do. These producers have obtained some information from the supplier of their bull but that is as far as they take it. Somehow we have to bridge that gap and get tags into these new producer hands. If anyone has a suggestion I’m sure we in Ontario would like to hear it. On the other side of this tag issue is the packers involved in the Canadian Rancher Endorsed program.

I had a conversation with a packer recently and one of his major concerns is finding enough green tag cattle to maintain his good standing in the Canadian Rancher Endorsed program. We need somehow to solve these issues if these programs are to move forward. As our round of fall purebred sales continue it’s good to hear and see that the demand for our Angus cattle continues as strong as it has been in recent years. Let’s hope this demand continues throughout our upcoming fall stocker sales as well. A large turnout of exhibitors and cattle ensured an excellent Preview show held in Brampton recently. It was good to see so many juniors participating in the Junior Show as well. Until next time Richard Tanner President - Ontario Angus Association

Maritime Angus Association Message

The Maritimes have enjoyed a great summer weather wise and now fall is upon us. I hope that many of you in other parts of the country have gried out or cooled

down. The grain crops came off very early here and now soybeans and potatoes are being harvested. Our Maritime secretary, Betty Lou Scott is recovering nicely from her surgery this summer and her prognosis is good so we wish her all the best. Very large and successful Angus shows were held in Charlottetown and St. Mary's in August and up next are Sussex and Halifax to wind down this region's show season. Five of the ten heifers from PEI chosen for the Royal Winter Fair junior show are Angus. Congratulations to Ellen Dixon, Patrick Holland, James Worth, Colby MacQuarrie and Katie McAloney on their selection to the team. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have not been selected at time of writing.

Our annual "Angus in Action" Sale is scheduled for October 16th in Nappan, N.S. This event showcases top quality purebred and commercial Angus cattle from Maritime breeders. For information on this sale check out the PEI Angus Association website at or myself at . Green Tag Angus sales are scheduled for October 12th and Nov. 16th at Atlantic Stockyards in Truro N.S. Contact Sean Firth at 902 893 9603 to consign. Feeder prices are stronger and cull cows seem to be in high demand and hopefully the finished price will follow. Good luck to everyone this fall. Tim Dixon, Maritime President

Canadian Angus Junior Ambassador Since I was named the 2010-2011 Junior Ambassador I have had the opportunity to meet many new people within Canada and outside of Canada as well. Being able to attend the CAA Annual General Meeting in Halifax was a great experience. I think it is import as Angus breeders that we all get together and discuss our breed and industry to keep us going in a progressive manner. The hospitality that the Maritime Angus Association put on was spectacular. The next event that I was able to attend was Showdown 2010 in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec July 8-10. It was great to see and meet many new juniors that are passionate about the breed and industry like I am. Having never been to Quebec it was a great opportunity for me to see some different cattle and genetics as well as promote the Canadian Junior Program to some new youth. A huge thank you to the Laurie Noiseux and all the work that she put into the show especially with all the translating! While being Ambassador I was allowed one International trip to an Angus related event of my choice. Well the opportunity came up for me to go to Denmark August 29 – September 6th for the 2010 European Angus Forum. I was also able to have a travel partner in Matt Fleury, last year’s ambassador, come with me. I chose to go to Denmark as it was the meeting of many European countries so I would be able to speak with more than one country. It was also meaningful for me to go there as my family sent cattle to Denmark and the Czech Republic in the early 90’s. Before the forum started Matt and I were able to stay with Elizabeth and Soren Riis Vestor of Hedebo Angus for a couple nights. Soren had imported some of my Dad’s cattle and has one of the most progressive herds in Denmark. Soren toured us around some other herd in his area that we would not see on the forum tour. We saw Riis Red Angus who had a lot of Canadian Red genetics in their herd. Soren even took us to see an old Limestone mine that was turned into a tourist area. It was great to be able to stay with Soren and Elizabeth and they provided great hospitality. After staying with Soren and Elizabeth Matt and I headed into Copenhagen for the start of the European Angus Forum. We had a chance to look around the city of Copenhagen for an afternoon and it is a very unique and old city with a lot of history. The next day, September 2, we were up bright and early to board the bus and meet some of the participants. There were

participants from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Portugal, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, and Switzerland. The first day consisted of two farm visits and driving in the south part of Denmark. We visited Bakkens Angus, Lis and Erik Magnussen. Lis is the current secretary of the Danish Angus Association. The next farm visit was to Monline Angus which is a herd with both Black and Red cattle. We were treated to a fantastic lunch and afternoon at Monline. Our next stop was our ocean side hotel, with fabulous views! Again we were treated to an awesome roast beef supper! The next day we were up bright and early to head to our next farm, Hogsgard Angus, Carsten Petersen. A farm with great cattle set in the rolly hills and lush green grass of the Danish countryside. Next we were off to catch a ferry to go from the south of Denmark to the Northern part. For two kids from Saskatchewan, with no large ferries, it was neat to see and ride on this huge ferry. It was fully equipped with a cafeteria, a Wii, tv’s, places to sleep and lot’s of games. Once we had reached our destination we were off to Markdalgaard Angus, Berit and Henrik Madsen. After touring their great set of cows we were treated to some incredible Danish pastries and coffee! Our next place was a little less cattle related as we travelled through the Rebild National Park. That evening we treated again to a fantastic meal including Salmon, roast beef and a Danish dessert. After supper the European Forum meeting took place. During there were a couple speakers from the Danish Beef Cattle board talking about breeding cattle in Denmark and the Danish Angus breeding program. At the conclusion of the meeting there were some short messages from the participating countries on their National Angus circumstances. After some socializing it was off to bed to get some rest for the final day of the tour. The first place we seen that day was the National Breeding Testing Station at Aalestrup. The Danish Angus Assoc sends letters to breeders that have some of the top bull calves in Denmark and ask them to bring the calves to the testing station to be feed and tested. It is optional for breeders to send their bull calves but it will offer them some more numbers about their bulls. It was really need to see the process on how the test station measures how much feed a bull eats and how the bulls are monitored all the time. We then loaded the bus again and were off to Ajshoj

Fall Commercial 2010*

Angus, Rigmor and John Hansen. Visiting this place was also a pleasure for me as they had imported some of my Dad’s cattle back in the 90’s. I was even able to see some descendants of our cattle. We were treated to a spectacular lunch; there was no shortage of great food in Denmark! The last farm that we toured was Thy Angus, Peter Eliassen. Once again we were treated to some great Angus cattle and some fantastic afternoon desserts and coffee. On our way to our last hotel we drove through Thy National park and were able to stop by the Ocean beach. It was a beautiful white sand beach, but it was a little cold to go swimming so we just got our feet wet and pictures taken. The final evening on the tour was in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Danish Aberdeen-Angus Association. We were once again treated to a beautiful three coarse meal. The food in Denmark was fantastic. It was a fun filled final evening with dancing, visiting and celebrating. There were about 100 people at the final banquet that evening. Over the course of a week Matt and I had made some life-long connections and met a lot of great Angus people. All the people on the tour were enthusiastic and proud of their herds and the Angus breed. I would like to thank all the Danish people for welcoming us with open arms and taking the time to show us their cattle and farms. I would also like to thanks Soren Riis Vestor and his wife Elizabeth for letting Matt and I stay at their home. I have prepared a list of top 5 things that I learned while in Denmark: 5. They do not have trucks! They pull their two-horse trailer with their car and their open wagon for cattle with the tractor. 4. Everyone rides a bicycle. In Copenhagen we did not have to worry about getting hit by a car but getting run over by a bicycle. 3. They have VERY narrow roads that have too many curves and bend! A road we would call a one-way was a two-way over there. They also drive very, very, very fast on these narrow roads. 2. They may have smaller herd sizes than us but the Danish people are just as enthusiastic about the cattle industry and the Angus breed. 1. The hospitality and welcoming attitude is incredible. There was never a shortage of food or someone to talk to. It made us feel right at home even if we had a little language barrier! So far my experience as being Ambassador has been fantastic. I have had the opportunity to meet many great people throughout the breed. I look forward to seeing everyone down the road at the fall shows and sales. Erika Easton

Canadian Angus Association - President’s Message

As I write this message, summer is fading and the busy fall season is upon us. Hopefully the weather holds and fall harvest and field work can be completed without any troubles. Fall is a busy time for Angus breeders with many show and sale cattle being readied for the fall run. My thanks go out to those breeders who put in the extra time and expense to exhibit their animals out in front of the public. This is also a huge time of the year for our commercial partners as the fall run of feeder sales are just around the corner. Due to the efforts of our commercial field staff and numerous breeders and regional clubs, Angus feeder calf sales are more and more popular, and these good Angus cross calves are demanding premiums across the country. Please find the time to support a few of the Angus feeder calf sales in your area and connect with the buyers and cattle people that take our genetics and “put them on the plate”!

It is with mixed feelings that I announce the news that Doug Fee will be retiring effective July 1, 2010 as the CEO of the CAA. The good news is that Doug has agreed to a 6-month consulting contract that will greatly help in the transition to a new leader of our staff and office. Doug did a tremendous job with our Association for 16 years and led us through many successes including establishing our own registry, joint evaluations with our American counterparts and being a huge part of growing our breed to the overwhelming leader in the Canadian purebred cattle industry. Doug will be sorely missed but this is also an exciting time as we transition into a new era for our Association. Doug and I just returned from the American Red Angus Convention as well as several Directors attended the American Angus tour in Montana, which occurred at the same time. The demand for our genetics from members of both American Associations is very high and part of that is due to our compatibility with our joint run EPDs. As many of you have noticed, the date for submission of data has been moved up to October 10 to accommodate some changes in the EPD data collections. Due to the joint run with the American Simmental Association, our data set went from 2.4 million data observances to 9 million. Even with cowboy math that sure speaks to more accurate predictions with our EPDs. I was assured that the formulas for hybrid vigor and other issues with multi-breed EPDS have been addressed and even though some numbers have changed, there will be very few ranking changes.

While in Missouri I had the pleasure to hear a speech by Trent Loos. He is a seventh-generation Nebraska rancher that has had his fill of people spreading misinformation about modern agriculture and the rural people that make a living producing food for the public. It was a very enlightening talk and made me think about the media and the rhetoric that is being spread about our industry. I always thought that cattle ranchers were somehow “better” than those people that cage up chickens. The simple fact is that Agricultural producers are trying to produce protein etc, in the most efficient way possible. Our competitor may be the chicken producers but our enemy is the Bob Barkers of the world that are trying to shut us down and ruin our way of life by spreading misinformation to a disconnected public. I plan to be on the road for much of the fall and hope to see many members in different parts of the country. Ownership linkage is a huge part of helping our Board of Directors govern in a responsible way. Please feel free to contact myself or any of the Directors by phone or at any of the shows, provincial meetings or other events around the country. Until we meet again, Kirk Wildman

Canadian Angus Foundation

The CanadianAngus Foundation is the charitable arm of the Canadian Angus Association. The Foundation functions to preserve and expand the Angus breed for future generations through education, youth development, scientific research and historical restoration.

This past summer with the assistance of a government grant, the Foundation hired student Amanda Suhan to sort and catalogue the vast amount of Angus material stored in the basement at the Canadian Angus office. Doug Cass, director of the literary and archives at the Glenbow Museum spent some time at the Angus office perusing our inventory and offered Ms. Suhan some valuable advice on preservation of the material. He has offered to store our more fragile material in a climate controlled environment at the Glenbow Museum. The cost would be in the form of a donation to the museum. The material would remain in the ownership of the Canadian Angus Association and could be returned to us, if we someday, have our own climate controlled archives. The Foundation will consider the offer in the near future . We would like to thank all of you who

utilized the donation envelopes mailed with the annual report. Your generousity is greatly appreciated. More envelopes are available at the Canadian Angus office. The Canadian Angus Board is considering digital files for some of the old registrations, etc., as the amount of material is piling up and causing a shortage of storage space. The Foundation Board is open to suggestions from our membership relating to fundraising. Please send your suggestions to Michael Latimer at the Canadian Angus office. We need funds in order to carry out our programs, such as the archives, Junior Ambassador Program, scholarships, etc. Best Regards Gary Harron , Chairman, Canadian Angus Foundation

Canadian Angus Association - CEO Message


Doug Fee

Why do you raise Angus cattle is a question each of you ask yourselves regularly. I suppose this could also be asked the opposite way for those who don’t—why don’t they raise Angus? Another question our seedstock producers need to think about is what they need to do to attract and retain good commercial customers. There are some breeders who have developed a good export market. We have sold a lot of Angus to Europe, Asia, South America, Mexico and even the United States. This reflects very well on the quality of genetic offerings from those Canadian breeders but the strength and basis of a strong genetic base and a good breeding program is the ability to produce the seedstock needed by the commercial cattlemen right here in Canada. The Angus breed has enjoyed tremendous growth during the past 20 years and the Association remains strong. We are able to retain our position as the nation’s largest purebred beef breed because our members are producing what the commercial cattleman needs to meet the market demand. The Association invests heavily in programs designed to help our commercial members get top value for their cattle. Our new Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program seeks to verify and promote branded beef

A S S O C Ask the CEO Why did the Association write commercial I cattlemen to identify animals with potential genetic problems? A recessive This question was asked in two ways: by a breeder concerned that the Association was interfering in his T relationship with a customer and by a commercial cattleman very upset that he may have avoided a I problem if someone would have told him there was a recessive gene that may contribute to lost calves. O The Association’s position has been that we must N be transparent and hopefully help all breeders avoid

programs that are based on Angus genetics. Our tag program was established to provide a tool for cattlemen to prove their animals have a minimum of 50% Angus genetics. We invest heavily in promoting and sponsoring feeder calf sales and work to encourage order buyers, feeders and packers to seek out Angus genetics with a view to increasing the possibility of quality carcass cattle. Recently our support of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) was invested to help our commercial customers find an easy way to participate in an ambitious program to help add value and collect valuable information on the animals they are raising and feeding. Angus members should be very pleased with our investment in commercial programs because they will never be successful unless their commercial cattle buyer is. We will be officially announcing a new promotional partnership with Cedar Creek Estates Winery soon. Elsewhere in the magazine there is an explanation of the program and introduction to our partner in promotion. Although we have discussed this at meetings in British Columbia for several years, there will still be some who scratch their heads over a promotion of a beef breed with a winery. There are some simple reasons. Firstly, red wine and beef is a common mix and they are often paired together. Secondly, it’s another great opportunity to get the Angus name associated with a quality product. The Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program is quietly expanding with our ultimate objective still to be able to identify more and more locations where you can send your friends to buy quality Angus products. The most significant complaint we’ve had from our partners is that there are not yet enough tagged cattle available—it’s a great problem that you

can help solve. Activity in the Association remains strong. Registry activity, which seems to be a major benchmark, is ahead of last year. We had a tremendous summer with over 16,000 registrations completed in a single month. Staff was swamped during that period trying to keep up but now that fall is here they are caught right up—just in time for the rush of activity brought on by fall weaning weights and fall sales. I’d like to eliminate the word “defect” from my vocabulary. Another Association refers to “recessive conditions” but there are two facts we need to keep in mind. First and foremost we do not have a major problem. There have been less than 10 reported animals affected by the recessive conditions that can now be identified by DNA test. The second thing is that it is important to identify them because by identifying carriers you will avoid matings that may cause problems. There are those who may think transparency, that is identifying carriers, creates the perception that there is a problem. The actual fact is that transparency will help you avoid problems. It has certainly caused some breeders real grief and the Board will debate if their policy was the best or not but it is a fact we will not have nearly as many affected animals as we would otherwise have had because the test exists to identify the carriers and avoid problem matings. The fall sale catalogues are beginning to pour in. It’s a little sad to see some dispersals, but life moves on for people and every dispersal offers new herds the opportunity to purchase the benefits of a mature breeding program. May those of you with sales this fall do well and may those of you looking to purchase do so wisely.

sire or dam have tested positive for a genetic defect, we took the position that everyone deserved to know so they could test their animal and if there was a potential problem they could make an enlightened decision. The good news is that there have been very few defects reported and with full disclosure of all tested carriers we can avoid any more.

returned to us the animal will not have EPDs unless it had a sire, dam or progeny in our herdbook. When Registry staff imported the animal into our herdbook they would also have added the American EPDs. The EPDs would be updated at the next evaluation when you report your calves’ weaning weights. If there are no calves, the EPDs would not be included in the data returned from the US. Anyone experiencing this quirk should call the office and the EPDs can be manually entered again. This does not happen to many animals but when it has occurred, we have confused people and we understand why. We are seeking an automatic fix but have not yet found how we can get two computers to communicate better.

genetic problems. We have learned that not everyone reads pedigrees and understands all the new acronyms. It’s also been pointed out that there are many people who don’t use the Internet and frankly some don’t even read messages from the Association. As for notifying people who own animals whose

I used an American sire with EPDs. They have disappeared. What happened? This person obviously used an American Black Angus bull because this particular situation does not affect Red Angus. The problem arises because we contract with Angus Genetics Inc. to do our genetic evaluation on black animals. Although we merge our data with theirs for the evaluation, when data is

Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Program

Through our relationships with our Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed licensed participants, we are now able to develop partnerships outside the cattle industry with companies in other agriculture industries. The Canadian Angus Association, through Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed, has formed an alliance with Cedar Creek Estate Winery from Kelowna, BC. The proprietors of the winery, Ross and Gordon Fitzpatrick maintain a presence in day–to-day operations. This includes the process of developing the wine, operating the restaurant, and marketing the wine in a very competitive market. In order to compete in a competitive market, they focused their efforts on developing the best product that their land will allow and invested in some creative marketing opportunities. The motto they operate by is similar to many Angus operations: ‘respect the land, honour tradition, and pursue perfection’. The question that we have been asked and will probably

be asked again is why in the world a purebred cattle organization would form an alliance with a winery. The answer is simple: to sell more Angus beef. Canadian wine and Canadian Angus beef are very complementary products and are often marketed to the same consumer. This allows both organizations to run cross-promotions and cost share which leaves more money on the table for additional promotions. Another benefit is the ability to share our ‘industry network’ which allows us and our licensed participants to break into markets that might otherwise be unobtainable. Because this promotional campaign is unique to the Canadian market, it will be far more eye-catching for consumers who have been bombarded with a million advertisements for wine or for beef products, but have never seen promotion for a winery and beef program together.

The consumer that we are targeting wants to be educated and informed about their product. They are willing to pay for a premium product but want to feel comfortable that are not being duped. They may have selected a wine and are looking for a proper cut of beef to pair it with, or have selected a cut of beef and are looking for a wine to pair it with. Either way we want to be in a position that they feel comfortable that they are making the right choice; that choice being beef from a Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed licensed participant. There are also some direct benefits for Angus producers such as having a top quality wine that you can ‘call your own’ and give to customers as a gift, serve at your sale, or serve guests in your house with your Angus beef. It will also work for serving at your celebratory party after winning Grand Champion or for drowning your sorrows when you don’t win. Either way it should be done with a premiere product. Watch for upcoming promotions and a more detailed look at the Fitzpatrick family of Cedar Creek Estate Winery. Michael Latimer Assistant General Manager

Canadian Angus Association - Breed Development


Why You Should Pay Attention to Genomics I spoke with a long experienced Angus breeder from BC about selective breeding and genomics. He told me that Canadian Angus breeders have used genomics so successfully that his expertise has been sought out by horse breeders looking to improve their breeding programs to successfully raise high performing horses. If you thought that Canadian Angus breeders haven’t been using genomics to successfully breed improvement towards goals like a high marbling product, high performance breeding stock and other qualities that Canadian Angus is renowned for then you’re about to be surprised. Selective breeding, choosing to breed specific animals because they excel at specific traits, puts selection pressure on the genes involved in those traits. This is genomics. There’s another generation of genomics around the corner, and there’s an incredible amount of research being done on beef cattle genomics. There is benefit to those who use Angus genetics. The advancements made in DNA technology mean that we increasingly have access to more and more information. Today, we can use DNA technology to identify specific genes in animals rather than wait until the calves are on the ground to measure the expression of those genes.

Are you looking for an Angus bull? The Canadian Angus Association makes it easy for you to find what you are looking for. Use the animal inquiry on our website to identify and locate animals that meet your requirements. The search tool allows Angus buyers to specify the sex, color, location, age, and performance criteria or estimated breeding value of the animal being sought.

The 50K (and now 850K) marker panel is made up of thousands of genes or markers for genes that are related to or attributed towards specific traits. For example, animals with gene A have been observed to have larger rib eye areas. The markers might not be the specific gene that controls rib eye area—in fact it is likely that there will be many genes combined that contribute towards this trait—but there is a correlation between the marker and the trait. Researchers, including a large group of investigators at the University of Alberta, are working to identify the effect that each variation in the bovine genome has on different traits, specifically in Canadian Angus animals. Each beef breed might have some markers that overlap and some that are expressed different, or in other words contribute to traits differently. These genes and marker variations have to be identified and their contribution towards physical traits has to be measured. This is a huge undertaking. Feed efficiency is a particularly complex but economically relevant trait that is the subject of much research. The possible ways that genetic information can be used to improve animal health is another. One group of Canadian scientists is working with feedlots to identify which genotypes respond well to certain pharmaceuticals, and which genotypes the pharmaceuticals are simply wasted on. How will all this additional information benefit Canadian Angus breeders? The ability to identify specific genes before they are even expressed means that Canadian Angus breeders can make more accurate management and breeding decisions even earlier. Genomic information on Canadian Angus animals will give Canadian Angus breeders breeding values (EPDs) that are more and more accurate. Ultimately, genomic information incorporated into enhanced EPDs will be an improved tool in your tool box as you breed towards a specific goal. Globally, Angus breeders are leading the way in

using DNA technology to identify, and in the case of Canadian Angus breeders, minimize the occurrence of several defect-causing recessive genes. Inherited conditions are found in all beef breeds and Angus breeders are using a tool available to them to be proactive about the fact. I spoke with a breeder who is keeping several cows that have been identified as Osteopetrosis carriers with the intent to breed them to non carrier bulls and select non carrier daughters to replace these cows. This will demonstrate how a DNA test can be used to eliminate a deleterious recessive gene without losing a pedigree or bloodline. Canadian Angus breeders also apply genomics to ensure pedigree accuracy with parentage tests. The parentage test currently recommended by the International Society for Animal Genetics and used at GenServe Labs compares lengths of microsatellite portions of DNA to qualify or eliminate potential parents. SNP parentage testing is also available on the market but is not recognized for international trade and can come in different strengths (accuracies). Before adopting this technology, Angus Associations globally will need to ascertain which panel of SNP parentage has an acceptable reliability level to ensure that accurate pedigree information is maintained. The advantage to using SNP parentage is that is has the potential to be less expensive, but sometimes you only get what you pay for. And for Canadian Angus breeders we want the best tools available, including our genomics tools.

For more information on Estimated Progeny Differences (EPDs) which are the predicted breeding values for economically relevant traits Angus genetics, buyers are welcome to contact me at 1-888-571-3580.

Happy hunting for the Angus bull that suits you.

Canadian Angus Association - Registry Department

Record keeping is a vital part of the purebred business; it would be impossible to keep accurate pedigrees without diligent record keeping. As with most things, records will be more correct if information is recorded neatly and timely. When the Registry Department has a question about a calf you have applied for, we generate an “RFI” or Request for Information sheet, and the calf is assigned a ?number (question mark number). The question about the calf will be outlined, and on the very bottom of the RFI sheet it says: “Any changes or corrections are to be made in writing, and either faxed or mailed back to the Canadian Angus Office. Please make the necessary changes or corrections directly on this form. To ensure accuracy, we can not accept changes or corrections over the telephone. “The fee for this registration will be held for 90 days. After that time period, the fee will increase as per its age upon completion, as per the current fee schedule.

Please respond to this Request for Information as soon as possible.” In short: Please write on the RFI sheet and mail or fax it to us rather than phone ● The fee for the calf registration is not held indefinitely; you have 90 days to sort out the requirement, after that the fee will increase. ● The birth, weaning and/or yearling weight data for the calf does not get included in the national evaluation, i.e. It will not qualify for EPDs Fee Increase: The Board made a resolution at their February 2010 meeting to increase some registration fees effective January 1, 2011. The last increase was in 1982 so our prices haven’t kept up with inflation! The good news is that those whose records are submitted in a timely manner will still get a very good rate. A calf that is registered when it is less than 4 months old will still be $15. A transfer that is sent to us with 60 days of the sale date will still be $12. Make it your goal to take advantage of these rates! The membership fee is also changing on January 1, 2011. Membership in the Canadian Angus Association will be $100 per year. Of the $100 membership fee, $33 is provided to the Angus

Angus World

World for your subscription, and $25 is provided to your provincial Angus association. Sellers of Purebred Cattle Sellers of purebred cattle are bound by the Animal Pedigree Act. See pages 28 and 29 of the Breeder Handbook, specifically Section 64, Subsection (j): “Without an express statement that the animal’s registration, identification or status as a purebred is from a jurisdiction other than Canada and that the animal will not be registered or identified in Canada by the person, sell, as registered or identified, or as eligible to be registered or identified, as a purebred, any animal without providing to the buyer thereof within six months after the sale date the animal’s duly transferred certificate of registration or certificate of identification.” If you are selling animals as purebred Angus in Canada, they must be registered in the Canadian Angus Association Herdbook, and a transfer must happen within 6 months after the sale date. A buyer of an animal that is not registered and transferred within 6 months of the sale may pursue legal action. Please visit our website at for current information and items of interest. You can contact the registry department by fax, email, or phone for any assistance you may require. Sharmayne Byrgesen Registry Department
