2012 is shaping up to be a great year in the cattle business. e Angus breed being a major player has been able to reap the benefits of the dramatically changed landscape. Calf prices last fall were significantly higher than previous years. is will bode well for spring bull sales. e commercial beef herd of Canada has evolved into being largely Angus based.

Angus World

We need to be vigilant in our culling process to ensure that only top quality bulls are being sold as herd bulls. If can learn anything from the tougher times, we should remember that quality bulls usually met with good acceptance. e lesser quality bulls would have been more profitable in the cull feed pen. I don’t like preaching, but let’s not be tempted to try and sell ‘just a few more’.

Winter Edition 2011/12

Angus breeders have some things to look forward to as far their association. We now have new management which will put a different and fresh approach to the way things are done. We have embarked on a build project that will see the headquarters of the association located in our own building. ere are exciting times ahead.

In a reaction to the severe market change caused by BSE, Benlock Farms looked to other means of sustaining the farm at Grandora, Saskatchewan. “Initially, like many people, we were playing with marketing beef off of the farm, recounts Tom Blacklock, who owns the operation. “I got carried away with my bookings at the abattoir and realized I would have to come up with a way to move the beef.” Looking for other means to generate sales, Tom applied to the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market and has been there for eight and half years.” “e great thing about this type of marketing is that you are in control of your pricing. is is really what has got us through the down market, so we are now in a position to take advantage of the recent up turn.” Benlock Farms markets 100 to 120 head a year through the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market. ere are challenges with marketing beef in this manner. Firstly, a steady year around supply is needed. Tom addresses this with calving his cows later and is more able stagger

when animals are ready. Secondly, you have to be able to market the entire animal. “Unlike a butcher shop, you can’t just order in what is selling.” Tom found that beef is a product well suited to a Farmer’s Market situation. “We have always gone with frozen brown paper wrapped beef. In the beginning this was hard on sales, but once we gained our customers confidence and loyalty, sales haven’t been a problem. Frozen beef is a very well suited product to sell through a Farmer’s Market. One of the advantages to the frozen product is that if you have a carry over, it can be stored.” “e customers that pay our bills, have a little colour in their cheeks, their eyes get a special glint when you mention the ‘Ribeye’.” eir consumption is based on the quality of the product. How much they have to spend only determines the type of cut they will buy, ribeye versus hamburger. ere is nothing more important than your hamburger, if that

Beef from Benlock Farms is hormone and antibiotic free. It is dry aged for 21 days at a federally inspected plant.

is top quality, the rest of the cuts will sell.” e hamburger that Benlock Farms markets is not a dumping ground for bulls, cows or outdated product. It is the same perfectly mixed, lean, flavourable beef which gives a difference you can see, smell and taste. Customers like the idea of being able to talk directly to the producer about the consistency and quality of the product. It is especially important to Tom that he is able to educate consumers from a producers perspective. More and more people are looking for quality over quantity. ey are wanting to put a face to the producer and learn how the animals are raised. “e fact that we are local is important. We butcher weekly, which allows us to be responsive to special orders. ere is beef on the rail at all times.” Benlock Farms also has select restaurants that use their product. Dan Walker, the owner and head chef at of Weczeria in Saskatoon is a great proponent of Benlock Farms. He has won several competitions


utilizing their product. Dan is a supporter of using local products as well as promoting the producers who supply them. With a quality product, chefs are willing to change their menu based on what is available to them.

In order to ensure a consistant quality product Tom has the backing of a herd of Angus cattle that goes back many generations. e Benlock herd stems from the Heatherbrook herd of Tom’s grandfather Sam Henderson. ere is a lot of history in these herds as the Henderson family’s involvement in Angus cattle goes back 100 years. e Canadian Angus Association recently recognized ‘Heatherbrook’ the Henderson family as being members of the Association for 100 continuous years. is is the first year that this prestigious award has been given and was received by only two herds.

From a study of thousands of extended pedigrees covering more than 40 years, it can safely be estimated that at least 75 per cent of all Angus who stem from Western Canada sources, will carry in their lineage ancestors who were bred at or introduced to Canada by Heatherbrook Farms. Of the handful of top bulls to play a major role in North American Angus breeding programs, Pine Drive Big Sky and Early Sunset Emulous 60E could be considered foundation sires right at the top. Tom’s father Ben purchased and promoted 60E long before he became a two time American Sire of the Year. Ben also raised the dam of Pine Drive Big Sky. A vast number of today’s popular bloodlines go back to these bulls, making it hard to imagine the impact on the breed of these two sires.

“e enjoyment of quality black cow/calf pairs on green grass. Seeing our customers succeed with our seedstock. Beef customers that seems to go out of their way to tell us how much they’ve enjoyed our product. these are the things that drive us to do what we do. Whether it is one pound of hamburger or a breeding bull, we greatly appreciate and enjoy each and every customer.”

“What I would like to tell my fellow Angus breeders is that we are on the right track. As time goes by the link between what you are paid and the eating experience of the consumer is going to get closer. It is amazing, I assumed that eventually we would run into at least one bad animal, but these Angus cattle are so consistant in terms of eating quality that we haven’t run into problems due to genetics.”

“e key ingredient in our beef is pride. If we were only about dollars and cents, we’d be doing something else.”


Canadian feedlots and ranchers can cooperate to improve beef produced from cowherds across the nation, all in the interest of profitably growing demand. Domestically and around the world, the beef already has a reputation for unsurpassed safety and traceability, along with the high quality of grain feeding. e next level is to track and improve individual carcass quality. “We’ve built our production protocols with that in mind,” says Travis Hickey, general manager of cattle strategies for Western Feedlots, with custom feeding operations near Strathmore, High River and Mossleigh, Alta. Working together, the industry can expand both supply and demand for high-quality beef by recording and sharing data, and then using it. “Today, we can provide weights on arrival, average daily gain during the feeding period, death loss, carcass weight, quality grade and yield grade, all on an individual basis,” he adds. Charlie Fullerton, who uses Angus bulls on black and black baldy cows north of Pincher Creek, Alberta, has been feeding with Western for more than 20 years. He retained ownership until the last two years when he sold directly to the feedlot, which has shared performance and carcass data for several years. “at lets us see which cows and bulls are doing the best; I’ve culled some cows partly on their carcass data,” says Fullerton. e improvement in grade from 50 per cent AAA to 75 per cent AAA he attributes to both culling the lower end and adding more Angus genetics.

“A lot of people don’t think about premiums for quality, or even know what they have. You don’t unless you feed them,” says Fullerton. “en if they don’t perform on the grid, you’ve got to start changing something.” Another 20-year customer, Twin H Cattle Co., near Goodsoil, Saskatchewan, looks forward to getting individual data now. Trevor Himmelsbach and his family start calving their 800 Angus-base cows in later winter. ey are weaned in October and custom fed at Western Feedlots. “We’ve seen the group data for many years, but could not link that to our own records until now,” says Himmelsbach. “We’ve had a big improvement, but looking forward to more,” he says. “e bulls I use for AI, I try to select those that will marble well, get a good ribeye and a little less fat – high grid bulls you might say. Being able to select on the cow side as well, we can make more improvement in those traits.” Group data showed Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand acceptance less than 20 per cent and no more than one per cent Prime. “at’s not where I want those to be,” says Himmelsbach. “We can make a lot of progress there, looking back on which cows are producing CAB and Prime, and AI’ing those to get even better replacements in their progeny.” e more data, the easier it is to see the effect of a change in feeding program, implant or market weight. e more known the more value, but it’s a dynamic set of data, says Hickey. “Genetics change from one year to another with the use of different bulls, and there can be large variation within a herd,” he says. “We work with producers in understanding how their cattle performed relative to their cohorts in the areas of performance, health and carcass attributes.” Western sorts individual cattle into the yard and as they are ready for market to reduce variation in carcass weight and manage optimal end-points.

Winter Edition 2011/12

“We encourage cow-calf producers to get more than just carcass data back, because without other information it is of very little value,” adds Hickey. “For example, as the industry adopts beta-agonists and new implant technologies, it drastically alters the carcass composition.” Knowing the information context helps keep genetic selection on track. Of course, marbling and quality grade are often up for discussion as part of the entire “complex puzzle.” “All else being equal, an average yielding carcass that grades upper AAA and fits the CAB brand can be worth $50 per head more than AA of the same weight,” says Hickey. It’s not uncommon for a load of Western-fed cattle to go 80 per cent AAA, and some 100 per cent or better, but the CAB share has been more commonly in the 10 to 15 per cent area. at can improve while making progress on feed efficiency at the same time, says Hickey, based on company data. at is, you don’t have to give up quality when selecting for feed efficiency. at tandem focus—quality with efficiency—is the key to producing beef that will attract more consumers, both domestic and globally. Hickey says foreign delegations that tour Western Feedlots are “blown away” by the level of individual information and traceability. “And they trust our feeding programs. is is becoming more important with the average consumer everywhere, so Canada is in a great position moving forward.” by Janet Kanters

Routine Human Genotyping have Applications for Cattle Breeders

Q U A N T U M G E N E T I C S

Many parents will remember the heel prick test for their newborn child soon after delivery. is procedure is common practice in modern neonatal medical diagnostics for the detection various genetic disorders, enabling parents to take appropriate action, if necessary. e neonatal heel prick test is primarily used to diagnose human genetic disorders, including phenylketonuria (PKU). e PKU test allows for a blood sample to be assessed for the proper functioning of the gene coding for the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. Should these tests indicate improper phenylalanine hydroxylase function, caregivers can take action by adjusting the child’s diet in such a manner that ameliorates some of the more serious effects of this disorder, thereby improving the health and longevity of the child. Using the heel prick test for genetic testing of newborns for PKU and other diseases (like cystic fibrosis and hypothyroidism) is critical revealing information prior to onset of symptoms, enabling caregivers to address these special growth and development issues. e necessity of genetics testing is not limited to infants, as diagnosing the predisposition for certain diseases is useful in adults as well. In some disorders, such as Huntington’s disease, where genotyping elucidates the malignancy in the huntingtin gene, there is no cure. Huntington’s disease serves as a rare yet striking example of how fate can be completely determined by our genes, as symptoms for Huntington’s disease are almost completely masked in young people, but for those unfortunate enough to possess the malignant huntingtin genotype, disease onset is an absolute certainty. Since no action can be taken with regards to mitigating the effects of Huntington’s disease, people at risk are left with the philosophical dilemma of whether or not they want to know if they possess the malignant huntingtin genotype. Many other genetic diseases, however, empower decision makers to take action to mitigate severity. For instance, genotyping of BRCA1 & BRCA2 yields information

Page 18

regarding possible carcinogenic mutations in these genes that increase the likelihood of breast cancer. Early BRCA1 & BRCA2 genotyping offers people who are diagnosed with carcinogenic mutations in these genes, and thus a predisposition for breast cancer, the opportunity to take proactive therapeutic avenues to reduce the likelihood of the onset of breast cancer. ese examples highlight the power of genotyping technology in predicting the future, thereby arming people with accurate information such that they may take appropriate action. How do genotyping technologies assist cattle breeders? Cattle genotyping is an extension of the same technologies used in human genotyping, as breeders take advantage of these modern technologies to not only mitigate genetic diseases in their herd, but also to optimize the production of cattle with key market characteristics. With regards to diagnosing cattle genetic disorders, one commonly used genotyping assay utilizes DNA markers to identify carriers of Curly Calf Syndrome (CCS). CCS is a disease in which calves are stillborn as a result of a form of arthrogryposis multiplex (AM), and these “curly” calves inherited two copies (one from each parent) of the lethal genotype and are homozygous for the AM gene. However, cattle may be living, symptom-free carriers of CCS if they possess only one copy of the lethal genotype of AM gene (heterozygous), while other cattle can be homozygous with two copies of the benign AM-free genotype. Cattle breeders use genotyping to determine the status of the AM genotype such that they can make informed herd management decisions, such as culling the AM-carriers or strategically breeding with AM-free homozygotes, to avoid the production and perpetuation of curly calves in their herd. Efforts to develop tests for other cattle genetic disorders, including neuropathic hydrocephalus (NH, also known as “Water Head”), contractural arachnodactyly (CA, also known as “Fawn Calf Syndrome”), mannosidosis (MA), and

Winter Edition 2011/12

osteopetrosis (OS) have been successful and are now commercially available to assist cattle breeders in herd disease management. Genotyping is not solely for purposes of diagnosing genetic diseases, however, as cattle breeders also use molecular genetics technology as another tool towards the production of cattle with enhanced market characteristics. e most well established and widely used fat-related cattle genotyping assay is the diagnosis of the leptin single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), where a single nucleotide shift in the leptin gene significantly impacts a cattle’s predisposition for rapid fat accumulation. SNP-based genotyping is also effective for the diagnosis of another gene, IGF2, that codes for insulin-like growth factor 2 which is associated with increased rib eye area (REA) in cattle. Research conducted at the University of Saskatchewan has shown that cattle who are homozygous for one version of the IGF2 SNP have 10% more REA than cattle with other versions of IGF2 SNP. Application of genotyping and selecting bulls homozygous for key characteristics can improve a breeder’s calf crop in as little as one year. rough the application of modern genotyping, breeders can better equip themselves with information about their herd, enabling them to make informed breeding decisions. Just as genotyping is critical for determining cattle (and human) predisposition for certain genetic disorders, modern breeders also employ genotyping technologies such that they make accurate and efficient herd management decisions when targeting key markets.

Beyond EPDs - Genomics and Beef Cattle

A L T A G E N E T I C S

We’re living in an information hungry world, and the faster we can get information, the better. When it comes to animal breeding, more information sooner means that better decisions and subsequent financial returns can be made. is has never been truer than it is now in the era of genomics. e traditional method of EPD evaluation depends on the collection of progeny test data. is results in highly accurate genetic assessments, but it is a time consuming and costly process. With a simple genomic test, cattle breeders now have the opportunity to obtain more information about an animal’s genetic potential very early in its life. Before genomic technology and its benefits can be fully appreciated, one must understand some basic concepts about DNA. Bovine DNA 101 DNA of bulls and cows is dispersed over chromosomes in each cell of the body. Four kinds of bases, connected in pairs and arranged in varying sequences, make up the building blocks of DNA. In total, there are ~3 billion of these building blocks in the DNA of a bull or cow. 99.8% of DNA is identical between cattle within a breed, so only 0.2% is different and this part determines the genetics differences we see in field data and in EPDs. is

Page 20

Angus World

means that there are ~6 million base pairs (0.2%) that cause the difference between cattle within a breed. e base pairs that cause these differences are called SNP’s (snips). Genomics Genomics is the method where the information from the traditional EPD is combined with the DNA information. DNA is analyzed from a reference population (a large group of animals with very accurate genetic evaluations) and with powerful statistical tools, the relation between SNPs and each EPD is estimated. For example, the relation between each SNP and the proof for Birth Weight (BW) is estimated, as is the relation between each SNP the proof for Rib Eye Area, and so forth for all traits. ese relations are called “SNP effects” and historical phenotypic data allows us to estimate them. Some SNPs may have a very strong effect on one trait but have very little or no effect on other traits. ese SNP effects allow us to calculate genomic values for bulls and heifers in order to facilitate accurate selection decisions among animals that are too young to have performance data of their own. SNP effects that are estimated in the reference population can be extrapolated to other animals in the same breed. is opens the door to testing the DNA of very young animals and calculating genomic EPDs, using these SNP effects. SNP panels, which can contain a huge amount of DNA marker information, can be very quickly analyzed. SNP panels can be used to assess for production traits as well as to determine parentage. Faster Genetic Progress Why is genomics such a big deal? e answer lies in the fact that genetic progress is much faster with utilization of this technology. To understand how this is possible, let’s review the 4 factors that influence genetic progress: • Selection intensity: when animals are selected based on a stricter regime, more progress will be made. Effectively this means using better sires in your herd for the traits you wish to improve. • Accuracy of selection: estimates of genetic value are just that – estimates. When we increase the accuracy of our estimate, we are more certain we are selecting the animals

Winter Edition 2011/12

that are the best genetically. e gains in accuracy of a genomic test over parent average can be huge, which means the ranking of sires is less likely to change over time as the bull gets progeny information • Genetic variation: a large degree of difference (variation) between the best animals for a trait and the worst animals for a trait allows more progress to be made, than if the best animals are only marginally better than the worst animals. • Generation interval: younger animals are generally geneticallysuperior to older animals when selection is taking place, and when that is the case, the faster we turn over generations, the more progress we make. The power of genomics lies in the fact that it positively affects three of the four factors that cause genetic progress: selection intensity, accuracy and generation interval. How will it benefit the industry? e major benefit genomics will bring to the industry is faster genetic progress. For seedstock producers, the major advantage lies in early life genomic testing, so the decision to feed and market ‘the right ones’ can be made. For the commercial producer, faster genetic progress will be realized through utilization of semen from bulls that have been genomic tested and therefore have more accurate EPDs earlier in life. An appealing future benefit of the technology could include the prediction of genetic merit for economically important traits that are not routinely measured, such as feed efficiency. is technology will provide revolutionary advances in our ability to genetically improve and better manage beef cattle, just as EPDs did once before. As with all breeding information, beef producers need to assure that selection for specific traits will have a positive effect on the short and long term herd profitability. And although genomic selection will be used as a tool to increase overall quality and performance of animals, proper management must always remain priorityin beef production.

CCA - BIXS Launched Nationwide

Larry Thomas

C A A / B I X S L A U N C H

In mid October, after the last of a three-phase launch process, the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) became fully active for beef producers nationwide to register and begin submitting data on their animals. With the launch to commercial cow-calf and purebred producers achieved, the emphasis shifts to ensuring feedlots can register onto BIXS and submit data on an individual animal basis. The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is working with the CCIA and feedlot software specialists to develop a program application that

Page 22

Angus World

would make this process relatively seamless and to enable large amounts of animal data at the feedlot segment to stream into BIXS in an automated process. It is expected that feedlot registrations and data submission could begin in the early new year if this application development stays on schedule. For carcass data, commitments have been achieved between the two major packers in Canada and the CCA to cost-share the collection and submission of data from the packers directly into BIXS. The target date for this to begin remains February 2012, which should cover most of the registered 2011 calf crop. BIXS will support the smaller packers to make the task of getting data to BIXS easier to manage through carcass tracking solutions. “The carcass data BIXS will collect on an individual carcass basis goes well beyond just simple grade data and will include measures like yield percentage and ribeye area and much more,” says BIXS national coordinator Larry Thomas. “For the next two years and more cow-calf producers wanting to get this carcass data at no charge will have to register onto the program and submit CCIA tag ID numbers along with birthdates as the minimum requirement.”

Winter Edition 2011/12

Most recently BIXS launched a service for BIXS registered producers to showcase their BIXS animals ahead of going to auction. The BIXS Cattle-Classifieds is a no-charge ad service found on the BIXS website that allows registered BIXS cow-calf producers to post information on their cattle and what auction market they intend to sell through, where that market is and when the sale will take place. Buyers have the ability to view and sort these ad listings based on attributes like sex, breed/cross; colour, vaccination details, castration information and more. Funding for the development and delivery of BIXS has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Agricultural Flexibility Fund.

Canadian Angus Exports

Comtois International Export Inc., based in Québec, is a Canadian Livestock Exporter that specializes in the export of Canadian Genetics of cattle and swine and has executed worldwide deliveries for more than 15 years. Our company works jointly with the Russian Federation and the CIS countries’ market

C A N A D I A N E X P O R T S

Russian Market In 2008, we shipped a fully loaded vessel with 1770 head of open Black and Red Angus heifers to Southern Russia. At the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009, there were several shipments of open and bred Angus heifers which totalled 1300 head. ese Angus shipments were part of a full cargo shipment of beef and dairy cattle to both Southern and Central Russia. In spring 2011 there was a shipment of 1400 purebred beef open heifers and bulls to Far East Russia, of which 380 head of this shipment were Angus heifers and bulls. e animals were loaded out of the Ports of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and arrived at the Port of Vanino, Russia. is was the first shipment of Canadian cattle to this region and the animals from this shipment were then allocated on 10 farms in Far East Russia. Also, in August 2011 there was a shipment of 2200 head that departed from the Port of Becancour, Quebec, Canada for the Port of Novorossiysk, Russia; this load included 490 head of Black Angus heifers and bulls. ese animals passed through Russia from the port to their final destination farm in the Siberian region.

for more than 9 years. Since 2007, we have been and are still very active in purebred cattle deliveries to these countries. From November 2007 to December 2011 we have exported more than 22,000 head in total of beef and dairy cattle; all animals were delivered on 13 vessels and 16 planes sent out of Canada to Russia and

Kazakhstan. Almost 35% of our cattle shipments were beef cattle; more than half of it, which totals over 4300 head were purebred, open and bred Black and Red Aberdeen Angus heifers and bulls.

Kazakhstan Market We started working with The Republic of Kazakhstan in 2008 and have shipped over 1000 head of dairy bred and open heifers to this country since then. Subsequently in the last year, The Republic of Kazakhstan has wanted more beef cattle. Under their Agricultural Beef Development Program, Kazakhstan requested a large number of purebred Angus and Hereford cattle to upgrade their genetics. Therefore, from September to November 2011 we have been working on this project in order to export 5 planes of cattle, of which 4 planes carried beef cattle to Kazakhstan. Half of this beef shipment included Black Angus bred heifers and bulls for a total of 430 head. Every Monday for 5 weeks, we had a plane leave from Mirabel Airport, Quebec, Canada destined for Astana Airport, Kazakhstan with an average of 185 head on board. These animals were then delivered to different places in Northern Kazakhstan. The loading of the most recent shipment of Angus cattle was attended by Wayne Gallup, Eastern Fieldman for the Canadian Angus Association.

You Get What You Pay For The increased demand for high-quality grade beef A change in marketing strategy by a major American retail outlet has intensified the focus on beef genetic selection. Late this summer, the Choice/Select spread was a few cents. By November, it was nearly 20 cents. Ongoing factors such as the diminishing U.S. cowherd have contributed to the increase, but there is more to the story. is fall retail giant Wal-Mart announced a change in merchandising strategy, emphasizing Choice beef over Select. Wal-Mart sells $260 million of groceries annually from 3,800 stores, and will continue to offer Select cuts, but the Choice offerings highlight a national trend that experts say is likely to continue. “e Choice/Select spread is going to settle in and stay awhile,” says Dr. Larry Corah, vice president of supply development for Certified Angus Beef, “for two reasons. One is consumer preference, and two – everything is relative to supply.” e consumer preference pattern is one Corah sees in CAB sales, despite the economy. “As a premium brand, we were concerned when the recession hit,” he explains. “We knew it could be a tough two to three years, as people became more conservative in their spending.” But that’s not what happened. CAB sales have increased 48.1 percent over the past five years – from 544.6 million pounds per year in 2006 to 807 million in 2011. “People want a quality eating experience. As they eat at home more, they are willing to spend a little more on that piece of beef, and a recent study shows beef from the Premium Choice and Prime grades has a 90 percent probability of providing a quality eating experience.” Corah cites an NCBA-funded study out of Colorado State University headed by Dr. Daryl Tatum, Professor of Animal Science at CSU.

“ere was interest in re-evaluating the correlation of eating experience to quality grade,” Tatum explains. “Is marbling predictive of eating experience?” e study used a panel of trained testers that assessed juiciness, tenderness, and buttery-beef flavor on various cuts ranging from Standard to Prime. It reaffirmed the premise that marbling and tenderness are the key components of the taster’s interpretation of quality beef. Also looking at instrument grading’s ability to standardize quality grade and therefore add to the diner’s expectations, the study revealed a steak in the Prime grade has a 98-99 percent likelihood of producing a quality eating experience; 82-88 percent for Premium Choice grade with a moderate amount of marbling. at percentage drops significantly as the quality grade drops to 15 percent for a Standard cut with “Traces” marbling. “Marbling has strong predictive value as beef is sorted into quality of eating experience,” Tatum says of the research results. So Wal-Mart and other retailers have listened to the consumer and the science. e Perfect Storm At the same time retailers stepped up to meet consumer demand for a quality beef-eating experience, “ere has been a linear and dramatic decline in quality grade,” says to Corah. According to the October 29 USDA National Steer and Heifer Grading Report, 58.48 percent of slaughtered animals graded Choice and 3.43 percent graded Prime. at’s down from a peak in Choice grade of 67 percent earlier this year. Not only has the percentage of higher quality grades decreased, but the entire U.S. beef herd is at its lowest level since 1958. e USDA in January put the size of the nation’s cattle herd at 92.6 million head, with the 2010 calf crop at 35.7 million head, the smallest since 1950. Added to the low herd numbers is increased export

demand, particularly in the Pacific Rim, an area known for its taste for quality grade beef. e USDA says exports are up 30 percent from last year, and Corah says China, Japan, and other markets are showing even more promise. Making the Grade All this is good news for producers who base their breeding strategies on carcass data. “Fortunately, the trait that most influences eating quality, in terms of flavor and juiciness, is a heritable trait,” says Corah, “and ultrasound is the best measure of marbling potential.” But, Corah says, there has been a flattening on emphasis on marbling, a trajectory that needs to change to meet demand. “Producers need to decide in their selection process, what traits, besides growth, to focus on,” says Corah. “Given the current demand, that focus needs to be on marbling.” “It can be done,” he adds. “Nationwide, 21-22 percent of beef slaughtered qualifies for CAB. But there are operations in southern Missouri that qualify 85-95 percent. Health and nutrition are part of the picture, of course, but primarily it’s genetic selection.” “A tremendous amount of information has been collected by producers,” continues Corah, as he highlights the value of “stacking” genetics by focusing on both sire and dam genetics to gain more predictability and trait enhancement progress. “We can’t emphasize the use of technology enough.” Tatum agrees the lack of supply of quality grade meat is a concern, and that overall, it is genetic improvement that accounts for the progress thus far and the progress to come. “e genetic component is key,” he says, “and ultrasound is a critical factor in that.” “It’s the top two-thirds of Choice and Prime that deliver the quality eating experience people want,” he adds. “And ultrasound is the critical tool to ratcheting up quality.” Producers need not worry about the cost-effectiveness of their decisions. Due to the market changes, the economic incentive is greater than ever. e price premium for Prime CAB over Select can garner upwards of $300 per animal. “Consumer taste is a very important consideration, and beef continues to be a positive eating experience,” says Corah. “e retailers are seeing a distinct trend. Producers need to produce, and are being paid to produce, that quality product. e huge message here is the dramatic increase in the value of high quality beef.” Submitted by the CUP Lab™

brochures he brought to the meeting. Over 35 people attended the meeting and then retired to the fund raising dinner for the Pacific Invitational All Breeds Sale held the next day. There were seven members nominated to fill the three B.C. Director positions available during the meeting. We would like to congratulate and welcome to the board the new Directors; Todd Marchant, Tom De Waal and Steve Gibson. Donna Mills and Lorraine Sanford were re-elected and Lorraine was unanimously elected as the new Director to represent B.C. on the Canadian Angus Board beginning in June 2012. Brad Chappell was re-elected as Vice-President and I was re-elected as President. We would like to thank outgoing Director, Tanya Belsham, for all her contributions to the Board and the members of B.C. as well as her work on the Newsletter. Her father, Frank Strimbold has done an excellent job representing us on the Canadian Board so it must run in the family. Alison Speller is still our Canadian Angus Junior Representative.Thank You to Alison for all her hard work.

Alberta Angus Association Message

R E P O R T S

As we near the end of 2011, the cattle market remains strong, with excellent prices for commercial and purebred cattle alike. The Alberta Angus Association had another successful year, capped off by a busy fall. During the end of October and early November the AAA hosted seven very successful steak fry’s across central and northern Alberta. I would like to thank all of the volunteers and

sponsors who helped out with these events. I would especially like to thank Carolyn Congdon for all the time and effort she put forth to make these events a success. In the southern part of the province, The Southern Alberta Angus Club hosted eight steak fry’s. These events were successful once again, and I would like to commend the Southern Club for all their work in promoting our breed. The Alberta Angus Association also hosted two Fall Gold Shows. The first was held in early October at the Olds Fall Classic, and the second was held at Farmfair International in mid November. Both shows were well attended by exhibitors and spectators,. The depth of quality in the shows was impressive. At Farmfair the inaugural “Alberta Supreme” was held, where the Champions from Olds, Lloydminster and Farmfair competed against one another for the two brand new DodgeTrucks, awarded to the Supreme Bull and Female. Congratulations to Miller Wilson Angus for winning both Supreme Champions. In upcoming events, the AAA will be attending the Medicine Hat Pen Show, the Camrose Bull Congress and

Manitoba Angus Association Message

What a fall it has been. Calf prices have finally made a large gain and there seems to be a bit of optimism in the business. Feeder sales went very well in Manitoba with large groups of Angus influence calves bringing top dollar. Bred females have also been selling very well over the past few weeks. Let’s hope this trend continues for a few years. We held the National show in Brandon at the Manitoba Livestock Expo with a very strong turn out. The show went very well and I would like to thank all the

the Calgary Bull Sale. These are three events that are well attended by a large number of commercial cattlemen. They are events where the AAA presence is valuable. The AAA is also still planning for the Canadian Angus Association Annual Convention, which will be held in 2012 in Lethbridge, from June 13th to 17th. The schedule is starting to be finalized, and it should be a fun and informative weekend in one of the high density areas for all of the Canadian Cattle Industry.

Ontario Angus Association Message

Greetings from Ontario! We have been having a great fall here. The weather has been great for our many sales and shows. Many purebred sales were held this fall all over the province. Many new breeders started herds and current breeds expanded their genetics by purchasing the excellent offering. Sellers were rewarded with strong prices. Commercial Angus calf sales were in high demand and commanded excellent prices. Let’s hope it continues in the next year. Many Ontario breeders brought out animals to shows throughout the province. This is a great way to showcase our breed. The 2011 show season finished with The Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. There was a large showing of great looking Angus cattle. I want to

Maritime Angus Association Message

Greetings from the Maritimes. With all the wet weather we were plagued with this past summer, the fall has turned out to be exceptional. Warmer than average temperatures;

and mostly dry weather right into December; has made for a great fall for harvest, and fall calving. This fall has seen the great prices for Angus cattle continue, and this was no exception for our 13th Annual “Angus in Action” Sale on October 22. The sale was at Nappan, Nova Scotia; and was well attended with lots of buyers, 27 animals sold. The Maritimes also held our first official Rancher Endorsed “green tag” sale at the Atlantic Stockyards in Truro, NS on November 12. The sale was held in conjunction with the Stockyard’s regular feeder sale.The sale was not as well attended by the buying public as hoped, however, prices were good, with Angus influenced “green tagged” calves bringing a premium. Wayne Gallop from the CAA, and I attended, along with other members of the Maritime executive. We all came away with great ideas on how to make our next sale a better success.

congratulate the winners because any one who shows knows the work and commitment it takes to show a winner. Next year we will host the National show at the Royal and plans are underway to make it a memorial event. We hope for many out of province and out of country entries. At the end of the year, it is a great time to reflect on the past, enjoy the present and dream of the future. The future for Angus cattle in Ontario looks great! Come to our annual meeting January 22nd in Peterborough and be part of the team. All the best in 2012 and good luck calving! Tammi Ribey President - Ontario Angus Association

The Maritime Angus Association held it’s Annual General meeting in Amherst, NS on December 4. Highlights from the meeting include, the Maritime Field Day and Junior Heifer show scheduled to be held at the Crapaud Exhibition grounds, on PEI in June. We also will continue our financial support for Angus shows throughout the Maritimes in the upcoming show season. I will be remaining on as the Maritime president, with a new vice, Geoff Larkin. Jim Colodey will also be continuing as our Maritime director to the CAA. Well that is all for now, I hope everyone has a successful winter & spring calving season, and I look forward to seeing everyone this year at shows and meetings. Remember to tag your calves with Rancher Endorsed “green tags”, and show your pride in the Angus breed.

Angus World

Operation name: Six Mile Ranch Ltd Family members: Husband, Clayton and children Callie, Cade and Coy Hometown or community: Fir Mountain, SK Years as an Angus breeder: 21 Years as a member of the Canadian Angus Association and an active breeder Years as a cattleman: I was born into a ranching/farming operation and joined the local Wood Mountain 4-H club at 8 years old. So, I would say I have been a cattleman for a long, long time! (Hey I do not want to date myself!) I have wanted to be a successful cattle producer for as long as I can remember. I think my family thought I was weird because at Christmas other girls had such things as jewelry and clothes on their wish lists, and I had Ritchey Jumbo Engravable Tags! My sister still does not know what the heck that is! My personal/business mission statement as an Angus breeder/cattleman: My goal as a purebred seedstock producer is to continually strive for improvement in all aspects of our operation, while being mindful of the product and service my customers and the industry needs and deserves. I want to be the best cattleman, business leader, mother, wife and friend I can be for as long as God gives me on this earth. My favorite quote in the world is "There is only one person responsible for my success and happiness and I get to see her every morning in the mirror.” Education/Training/Work History: As a young child I had an innate LOVE of beef cattle. My father was a wealth of knowledge and he would always take the time to help me with cattle judging, showing and care. Although we do not always agree on cattle now, I will always be grateful for his early guidance. I LOVED 4-H and feel it is an invaluable program for young cattle breeders. After high school, I attended the University of Regina with the goal of becoming a High School English Teacher. However after two short years there, my love of cattle, the ranch and a certain tall, dark and handsome young man changed my plans and I moved to Fir Mountain and began working alongside my husband on our cattle ranch. I also worked full time as a member service representative in the Credit Union System and that afforded me much training in the financial area. Soon after, we were blessed with our daughter Callie and my greatest education began! In order to be a successful purebred Angus breeder I wanted to gain experience in many areas of the industry. I worked at the Assiniboia Livestock Auction during the fall run in the receiving and sorting alleys. It was hard work but it gave me a wealth of knowledge in the commercial cattle marketing area. My husband and I also worked for his grandfather when we first began in the cattle business and learned many valuable lessons that way. In the past we owned and operated a 600 head commercial cow herd alongside our 300 head purebred herd, so I would say that my education — for the most part — was definitely hands on! Volunteer involvements: I have served as the Vice-President of the Canadian Red Angus Promotion Society. I was honored to be elected the first female president of the Saskatchewan Angus Association. I served many years on the Beef Committee and Junior Committee of Canadian Western Agribition. Locally I have served on the Wood Mountain Regional Park Board and as the Chair of the Glentworth School Community Council. My proudest moment: Well nothing will ever top the birth of my three amazing children Callie, Cade and Coy. However, the World Angus Forum was a real highlight in my life. The Forum culminated three years of preparation, planning, drive and hard work. We were honored and yes, very proud to win many, many medals and awards at that show, among them Grand Champion Bull AND Grand Champion Female in both the Open Show and the Futurity. Winning Champion Breeders Herd and Premier Breeder and Exhibitor in front of the whole world was a moment I will never forget. Perhaps the greatest feeling was sharing that win with our family and staff AND a couple of very deserving cattlemen who have supported our program over the years, Mike Smith of Box X Ranch and Randy Tetzlaff of Triple L Angus. My vision for the Angus breed in Canada: Angus cattle have risen to the top in the cattle industry over the past many years. My vision is to see Angus remain the number one breed of choice for commercial and seedstock producers in Canada and around the world. I see the Angus breed taking a leadership role in the cattle industry working alongside other sectors of the industry to grow the demand for quality Angus beef genetics throughout the world. Why I ran for the CAA Board of Directors: I have always wanted to give back to the breed of cattle that has given me so much enjoyment and success. I also felt that my experience as a hand in the trenches cattle breeder could benefit the Association and its members as it moves forward as the number one breed of cattle in Canada. And as a director I have a personal mission to make sure that being an Angus breeder in Canada is not only enjoyable and profitable, but also affordable for everyone. Any other important information to share: As a director of the Canadian Angus Association I would love to hear from you — the members of our Association. Please call or email if you have any ideas, comments, criticisms or success stories you would like to have heard at an Association level. Although I cannot always guarantee that these comments will result in the action you want, I can absolutely guarantee that I will bring them forward on your behalf as we strive to improve our Association and our breed. Please let your great ideas or criticisms make it beyond your kitchen table. “If you wouldn’t write it, and sign it, don’t say it.” — Earl Wilson Winter Edition 2011/12

Volunteer involvements: Bashaw Agricultural Show Committee, 4-H (previously) My proudest moment: How do you pick one? All have involved my family.

Cecilie Fleming Alberta Director

Why I ran for the CAA Board of Directors: To give back to the breed that enabled my Mom and Dad to raise six children and Lee and myself to raise our family on a farm.

Operation name: Fleming Stock Farms Family members: Duncan, Cooper & Ricki Hometown: Granum, AB Years as an Angus breeder: We registered our first Angus in 1995 Years as a cattleman: Life - I was raised in the cattle business, married into the cattle business and continue to advocate for & enjoy the cattle business. My personal/business mission statement as an Angus breeder/cattleman:To provide the best seedstock genetics to meet the needs of the commercial cattle producer and to foster youth development and education to ensure we have a well-prepared generation to succeed. Education/Training: Lethbridge Community College (Diploma in Recreation Management); Olds College (AI Technician); School of hard knocks — preparation for whatever life has in store Work History: Fleming Stock Farms, Fleming Fitting Service & Fleming Bull Development Center; Alberta Health Services (Mental Health Aid); Granum School (Teacher Assistant for Alternative Youth Program); Town of Claresholm (Recreation Director, Parks, Arena Maintenance and Greens Keeper) Volunteer involvements: My volunteer experience is vast with my community and with youth; Specifically to the Cattle Industry: Canadian Angus Association Director since 2007; Alberta Beef Producers - Zone 2 Delegate & Communication Committee since 2006; Canadian Angus Foundation - Director & Fundraising Chairman since 2007; Chinook Jr Stock Show - Founder & Chairman since 1995; Southern Alberta Angus Association - Volunteer & Director since 1990; Bashaw Show Committee - Chairman Pee Wee Committee since 1998; World Angus Forum Organizing Committee - Executive 2004 – 2009; Alberta Junior Angus Association - Adult Advisor - 2000 - 2008; Claresholm 4-H Beef Club - General Leader & Volunteer - 1990 - 2007; South Country 4-H Judging Club - Founder & Leader - 2003 - 2007; Provincial 4-H Beef Heifer Show Committee - Member - 2003 - 2006; Alberta Angus Association - Director & President - 2000 - 2006 My proudest personal moment: Watching our children succeed and flourish while following their passions. My proudest Angus moment: World Angus Forum - from vision, to the successful bid, through the four-year planning process and being immersed in the execution of the project plan at Spruce Meadows. I am proud of the committee members I served with, the unsung volunteers for their dedicated work and the breeders who embraced the event as exhibitors and guests. My vision for the Angus breed in Canada: My vision is for Angus to be the universal breed that crosses well with all other breeds to maximize the hybrid vigor that allows the commercial cattlemen to flourish. If the commercial cattlemen see value in our product through increased demand from the feeding sector who has received the market signals from the packing industry who have done their market research and Angus is what the consumers are asking for by name, then the circle is complete. We must maintain the integrity of our Angus herd and ensure Angus are the preferred genetics of the commercial cattleman. Why I ran for the CAA Board of Directors: I believe in open and clear communication, non-ego-based thinking, solution-based problem solving, forward thinking and future-oriented planning, I value all breeders large and small, welcome all points of view, I can be hard on issues but respectful of people and I have passion for Angus to ensure the breed is in the forefront in all aspects of the industry and that Angus Breeders are represented at as many decision-making tables as possible. We must be engaged in our industry or someone who has no experience or vested interest in our industry will make decisions on our behalf. Apathy is not in my dictionary but hard work and dedication are in bold print. Winter Edition 2011/12

Canadian Angus Association - CEO Message excited about each of these new staff members and I want to assure you they are worthy of your trust and respect.

C A N A D I A N A N G U S A S S O C I A T I O N

Welcome to 2012! And we are starting this New Year with the most optimism we’ve seen in our sector and the whole agriculture industry for a long, long time. I can go on and on about the market reports and the supply shortfall and how all the indicators show we are going to enjoy this run for some time. I’ll let you read about that elsewhere. In my contribution to our Official Publication, please let me inform you of our Canadian Angus Association news since last October. Some trends… The year-end statistics are still a few days from being finalized, but 2011 will look a lot like 2009 and 2010 in overall activity in terms of memberships, registrations and performance information, with a marked increase in transfers and Rancher Endorsed tag sales, both of which are over 10% more than last year. I am hopeful these registered Angus are sold to folks who intend to continue their registration status as well as maintain their commitment to the Canadian Angus Performance Program. Further, congratulations on making us breaking our record for the most Angus tags sold! Now we just have to keep promoting these tags and their Rancher Endorsed program value to all our customers, neighbors, friends and family. Many of us have the goal of never seeing an Angus animal anywhere in Canada unless it is branded “Rancher Endorsed”, so let’s see how much larger the world’s largest branded ear tag program can get! Goings and Comings… You likely know that Registrar Sharmayne Byrgesen left the CAA in December after just shy of 16 years and that Communications & Marketing Specialist Tina Zakowsky will soon be heading off on Maternity Leave. We will miss both of these dedicated staff but at least we know Tina will return and we wish Sharmayne all the best in her new adventure. With ‘goings’, however, mean comings, and elsewhere in this Angus World you will see the profile for our new Senior Registrar, Stacy Price, Tina’s maternity cover-off, Cassie Bacon, and our new Assistant Registrar, Esther Stern. Please make Esther, Cassie and Stacy welcome as they join us as new members of the Canadian Angus fraternity. I am very Page 58

National CAA Membership survey We have been thrilled and a little overwhelmed with the response rate to the membership survey. We fully realized how comprehensive (read: LONG!) the survey was, but it has been a number of years since you were asked your opinion so there was a lot to ask and a lot of feedback to try and get from you! Such surveys are generally considered statistically significant with a response of 2% and highly representative with a 4% return rate; we had 4% before the first of December! I believe we will end up with more than 10% of our membership having submitted either the electronic or mailed survey, and the Board and staff will take your opinions and inputs very, very seriously. Our interim Communications and Marketing Specialist, Cassie Bacon, is currently compiling the results, and the Board will consider the summary at their February Board meeting. We will print the survey’s Executive Summary in an upcoming edition of Angus World. Many thanks to those of you who participated and please rest assured, we will not send you such a comprehensive survey ANYTIME soon! We will be surveying you each year around that November / December time frame, but we will select likely two areas in which to get your thoughts and impressions each year on a three-year rotational basis. So you will have your chance to speak your mind to us every year on a regular rotation of topics. Again, I respect the Board’s commitment to hearing you, the membership, and the staff team appreciates your voice as well. 2012-14 CAA Business Plan The staff team have spent part of the past few weeks working on the next iteration of our Association Business Plan, something the Board will be considering in February. Once the Board has approved the plan, it will be available for you to inspect. Please be sure to check out the website and it’s link that will be found on our Home Page. New rule for 2012 Gold Show regional funding 2012-born Gold Show entries will be counted in your show funding total ONLY if they are identified with an Angus tag. So, in order to factor into funded numbers, all 2012-born entries MUST be CAA registered AND tagged. I was a little disappointed by the number of purebred seedstock showing this fall that were NOT actually wearing the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed ear tag. Hopefully this requirement will assist with changing our culture so that everyone thinks and knows to put this tag in and lead your bull customers by example. Remember the great example set by folks like Lazy MC Angus and Cudlobe Angus

Winter Edition 2011/12

who gave each buyer at their 2011 bull sales at least a free bag of tags per buyer or even a free bag for every bull! If you want to help bring this value to your bull sale, please contact Cheryl in your CAA office. 2011 Gold Show Results You will find the 2011 Gold Show Results included elsewhere in this Angus World. For the first time, we’ve name an “All Star Team” for each the Red and Black sections. Congratulations to all winners and EVERYONE who committed the time and money to assure our breed remains in the public eye! Increasing the number of 4-H beef club members who show heifers… and then making those heifers be Angus!!! I come to the Canadian Angus Association after having spent 9 years as a 4-H Specialist… the best job in the world save for the one I’ve got now. In this time, I saw the number of female projects that 4-H members in Alberta carried on an annual basis decrease from 70% of 4-H beef club members to around 20% now. The numbers dropped in the fall of 2003… our most significant post-BSE effect on the 4-H Beef Project, but we’ve also never recovered. I suspect this is the same across the nation, and I want to do something about it and I want your help. Although every single one of you can help to promote and make a difference, the CAA are willing to ‘put our money where our mouth is’ and help pay to make this happen. The Canadian Angus Association is actively seeking resources, and will commit some of our own as well, to hire a Summer Staff in each Saskatchewan and Alberta to go around in May and June of 2012 to every 4-H Achievement Day they can get to, or an alternate effective event, talking to the members and promoting the value of the female project. Talking about how a cow/calf stays around for a long time and can actually assist with paying for your first car or putting you through college or university. And how, if you start showing heifers in 4-H at the age of 9 or 10, you could have a cow herd size by the time you graduate high school that can give you A LOT of advantages. Of course, I hope we can convince these young folks that the best breed for them is Angus, but the primary objective in May and June will be to promote the female project and, ultimately promote cow/calf production to potential ‘cattle kids’. Then, in July and August, these two Summer Staff can work with our Regional Associations on assisting the organization of their Junior Angus Show, help the CAA organize the fall run of Rancher Endorsed Feeder Calf Sales, and do some Fieldman work promoting this great breed. These youth will have a great ‘internship’ as a Canadian Angus employee, collaborating with the Regional Associations.


It is my ultimate goal to have a summer student in every region, but that may take us awhile to accomplish. To start, we will focus on our two most Angus-populated regions –Alberta and Saskatchewan– and then evaluate our measurable success. I will have more details about this employment opportunity as the winter progresses, but please keep it in mind and promote this opportunity to any university or college student you know. If you are such a student, even if

you do not apply or are not hired, you can still try to promote cow/calf production to your fellow youth and I feel confident in saying that, since you are steering them toward Angus, they will end up making a long-term commitment.

is spent increasing the value of your financial commitment and contribution to the Canadian Angus Association. Finally, I hope 2012 is a peaceful and prosperous year for you and everyone you care about.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Also, please know your CAA staff is committed to assuring that our entire professional time

Cheers, Rob Smith Chief Executive Officer

e Pride of Angus… Please let me share with you some of my prideful moments from this fall revolving around Canadian Angus: • Seeing the stands so full at sales, both commercial and purebred, and even when the stands aren’t full, those in attendance are there to buy, assuring a solid sale average for consigning CAA members; • Angus cattle winning both Supreme Champion Female and Bull at Farm Fair in Edmonton; • Angus Females taking 7 of the Top 10 spots in the RBC Supreme Champion in Regina, in addition to being named Supreme, while half the Top 10 Bulls were also Angus; • The extraordinarily large crowd watching the Angus show at the Toronto Royal Winter Fair; • Seeing Saskatchewan breeder Sheldon Kyle adorning the cover of the December Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Connection as “The New Face of the Cattle Industry” – here is the link: http://www.saskbeef.com/images/stories/2011/PDF/PROOF_LR_CattleConnection.pdf; • The number of young Angus enthusiasts running around the show barns everywhere I travelled – Brandon, Toronto, Edmonton and Regina. I saw more young breeders in our stalls than anywhere else in the barns; • The impressive manner in which Canadian Angus Ambassador, Austen Anderson, represents us everywhere he goes, including making sure every single person we encountered in Argentina was wearing a Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed pin; • Honouring the Henderson and Matthews families for 100 years of Angus commitment at Agribition and 75 years for the Anderson family; • Seeing so many volunteers working together to make events come together, be they sales, shows, meetings, banquets or other activities; • Visiting with the ‘straight’ Canadian breeders at the “Canadian Legacy” sale in Olds; my old friend Dick Turner would be so proud of this event!; • The international cattlemen I met, each and every one of which recognizes the absolute integrity of the Canadian Angus breed and its breeders.

World Angus Secretariat Here are some quick observations about the World Angus Secretariat: • Canada had the largest delegation of any nation; • Canadian Angus is looked at as a leader by other members of the World Angus Secretariat; • There were 18 associations in attendance and 2 new associations joined the Secretariat; • Argentina associates wealth with agriculture. We visited six wealthy operations but overall the national infrastructure is less developed than Canada’s. For example, when it rains, the roads are impassable because there is little gravel; • There was lots of excitement about genomics; • Consumed a steady diet of beef and red wine; • Canada has the third largest purebred Herd Book behind the American Angus Association and Brazil; • Most countries have a secondary/appendix herd book for composite cattle; • Cow populations are shrinking worldwide but Canada continues to do well comparatively; • Quality of the cattle in Argentina was excellent. Here are the locations of upcoming international events: • 2013 – World Angus Forum – New Zealand • 2015 – World Angus Secretariat – Mexico • 2017 – World Angus Forum – United Kingdom (primarily Scotland) This is a description of the New Zealand Youth Competition which could be an excellent opportunity for Canadian Juniors, and something that the Canadian Angus Foundation might be able to assist in sponsoring. http://www.worldangus.com/Programmes/youthprogramme.html http://www.worldangus.com/Downloads/Argentina%20Youth%20Brochure.pdf

Canadian Angus Association - President’s Message

In the summer of 2011 the Canadian Angus Board of Directors made a historic decision. They passed a motion approving the purchase of land that will be the home of the Canadian Angus Association.

C A N A D I A N

Canadian Angus Foundation

A N G U S A S S O C I A T I O N

The decision was not made without an in-depth financial analysis that indicated our financial position would be significantly better by constructing our own facility. Achieving value for membership dollars is a high priority with the Board and as lease payments are reduced more resources can be focused on member services. It is the Board’s vision that construction will begin in 2012 and the venue will include participation by other segments of the purebred industry. By including other breeds in our facility much efficiency can be gained relative to reception, hardware and software technology and utilization of physical infrastructure.

2011 Year in Review The 2011 year will be one to remember for the Canadian Angus Foundation. The Red and Black Baldy Fundraiser was the single largest fundraising campaign in Foundation history. Overall, the 2011 year was the second-largest fundraising year behind only that of the 2009 World Angus Forum. Other notable fundraising events include the Dick Turner

Memorial Fund which continues to receive contributions from our membership. The first annual Dick Turner Memorial Award will be presented at the Canadian Angus National Convention in June 2012. In June, Erika Easton passed the Junior Ambassador torch to Austen Anderson. To date Austen has represented the CAF at numerous events including the Manitoba Livestock Expo, Royal Winter Fair, Farmfair International, Agribition and was the official Canadian youth delegate at the World Angus Secretariat in Argentina. Along with his commitments as the Junior Ambassador, Austen continues to pursue his Education degree at the University of Regina and occasionally returns home to help out at Anderson Cattle Company in Swan River, Manitoba. The CAF has started the development of a ‘Canadian Angus Cookbook’. The idea is to gather a few of those old family secret recipes and share them with fellow Angus breeders. Ideally we would like them to be focused on Angus beef but we are

We hope to have some participation by the commercial segment of our industry as well. The networking possibilities of the purebred and commercial leadership of the beef industry in the same venue are mind boggling. The Board feels that by taking such a leadership role in the future of our industry, it will bode well for our breed and its membership. The direction our breeders take is the direction of our industry. Any inputs from other segments of our industry will only help us chart the course to a successful Canadian beef industry. You as Angus breeders are at the helm of this industry and the Board of Directors are mandated to keep you there. David Bolduc President, Canadian Angus Association

accepting a wide variety of recipes. If you would like to share your favorite recipe, simply e-mail it along with your name or whomever deserves credit for the recipe to mlatimer@cdnangus.ca. As part of the 2009 World Angus Forum Embryo Lottery, the Canadian Angus Association staff were the lucky winners of three embryos which resulted in two Black Angus heifers. These two heifers, Registration #1599534 and Registration #1599535 will be sold as bred heifers sometime next fall with the entire proceeds going to the CAF. More information on these heifers can be found in the Animal Inquiry section of the Canadian Angus Association website www.cdnangus.ca or feel free to contact me at the CAA office. On behalf of the Canadian Angus Foundation I would like to thank everyone who has supported us in the past and look forward to the New Year. Regards, Michael Latimer General Manager

Commercial Chat

A statement I read from “The Bottom Line”, written by Spring Creek Consulting, made a lot of sense to me about our current beef situation. The statement read: “Demand has always and will always be a key issue for the beef industry. All wealth in the cattle business ultimately must come from the consumer. Beef demand drives price levels throughout the entire cattle complex.”

Breed Development

Selective Breeding Over Multiplying More than ever this fall, Angus folks have called me before going to a sale or buying an Angus animal to ask me about its EPDs. These potential buyers are concerned if the animal does not have EPDs. I am so proud that knowledgeable Angus breeders are looking for EPDs and thinking twice about buying animals that do not have EPDs. If you buy an Angus animal that doesn’t have EPDs or any performance data recorded, it will take longer to get accurate Conversion to SNP Parentage Verification Thank you to all the members who responded to our call for sires and donor dams that need to have their parentage DNA upgraded to SNP technology. We are overwhelmed at the response that we got from all of you. We have compiled a list of over 2,800 DNA samples that need to be converted to SNP. This will take much longer than we anticipated, and additional funds for this conversion will need to be sought. Therefore, the conversion to SNP parentage verification has been delayed until July 1st, 2012.

I believe that paragraph analyzes and explains exactly where we are at today in this cattle business. This fall, our field reps have reported record prices in every weight range, right across Canada. Replacement heifer calves are in such demand that in some cases, they are outselling steer calves at the same weight break. Bred heifers, especially solid red and black, bred Angus, are in such demand that they are topping sales right across Canada. On the purebred side, sales have been exceptional, with strong demand for those extra good ones. Early bull sales indicate that the demand is there, with buyers still very critical of quality and performance. It would be a good time right now to check in with your bull customers and see how things worked out from last season and visit about their record calf sales this fall. Chances are they will need to replenish their bull battery. I would like to personally thank our team in the field for a job well done. These guys put in endless hours behind the wheel, representing Angus in

Canada. Thank you to Ken Cox, Blair McRae, Wayne Gallup, Chris Aulthouse, Laird Senft and Jack Brown. These dedicated guys were able to be at about 98% of our designated Angus sales in every region of Canada. I got great compliments every day from our commercial sector that these guys represent you well day in and day out. The operation wouldn’t work without a team at home, and I thank all our staff in the CAA office for a job well done. Thanks to Tina, Rob, Michael, Joanelle, Alan, Cheryl, Kajal, Sharmayne, Ciara and Shirley for backing our team in the field. It does come together as a breed when you have such a super team working for the same end results. I look forward to a good bull sale run this spring. See you out there. We will represent Angus at a lot of upcoming Angus events starting in January.

EPDs for the calves that you get from this animal. This is a growing concern to Angus breeders. If you are not a participant on the Canadian Angus Performance Program, this is a good time to contact me and enroll in the program. We keep the process of submitting your weaning weights as simple as possible; and participants receive both in-herd (adjusted weights and indexes) and national assessments (EPDs) of their cattle. As much as EPDs are a great marketing tool, please do not forget that they are first and foremost a selection tool. At the Livestock Gentec conference this fall Dr. Mitchell Abrahamsen from Cobb Vantress reported on how much impact genetic selection based on pedigree analysis and genetic evaluation (EPDs) have increased feed conversion, improved growth rate, changed phenotype to meet consumer demands, and increased PRODUCER PROFITABILITY in poultry. Angus breeders have the same genetic selection tools (EPDs) available. They are not the only selection tools; EPDs should be used in balance with phenotypic selection for traits that we do not evaluate like teat, udders, feet, etc. However, it has been shown in dairy, in poultry,

and in Angus that using selection tools for selective breeding equates to genetic improvement and increased profitability. The Association’s own President, David Bolduc, states after the strongest Cudlobe sale ever that paying attention to EPDs when selecting replacement heifers and bulls has definitely paid off for his program. “Generally, our heaviest calves are from our high EPD heifers. There are always exceptions to the rule, but using EPDs has increased our predictability and our production. We target bulls with great carcass EPDs and we have seen this confirmed by our ultrasound scan results and by our carcass data from Cargill. Our cull bulls that do not make our program have been qualifying for Cargill’s Certified Angus Beef program—a testament that selecting for high Marbling EPDs results in high grading calves”. It is evident that commercial cattlemen and Angus breeders across Canada are motivated by performance data, and also by the results of using performance data and selection tools like EPDs for genetic improvement.

Here is some information that members have asked me for in the last few weeks: Why the conversion? The Association tries to bring to its membership the most up-to-date technology. Will I be able to sell semen to the US and other countries with this type of parentage verification? Yes, all the Angus Associations that belong to the World Angus Secretariat committed to convert to SNPs. And, both the American Angus Association and red Angus Association of America have already done so.

Does the way that I order DNA kits or get parentage done change? No, the process for our members will remain the same. Will we need new DNA samples for the conversion? No, we will use stored DNA for the conversion.

By Brian Good, Director - Field Services

Should you have any more questions at all in regards to SNP parentage verification, please contact me. Kajal Devani Breed Development Specialist

Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Tag Program

C A N A D I A N A N G U S A S S O C I A T I O N

I spent some time while writing this looking over articles I have written in the past year and almost every one starts with the announcement of new initiatives surrounding the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Tag Program. It is an exciting time in the cow business and an exciting time to be working on the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program. Sadly, this time I do not have any new changes to share with everyone but that does not mean that things are not happening. Instead I would like to summarize and review what we have done in 2011 and what will be a real focus for us moving through 2012. In the 2010 Winter Edition of Angus World we started the year off with a bang. We announced the official name change from CACP to the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Tag Program as well as our new full colour tag product brochure which was hot off the press. This also was the launch of our new products from the Stone tattoo equipment line. The brochure has been a hit and I appreciate all the positive comments which we heard here at the office. The tattoo equipment is also selling well and our arrangement with Kane Veterinary Supplies does not require additional work from us to offer these products. We continue to offer the tattoo equipment and use the tag brochure and they are available by contacting the office. Our Commercial Edition brought the announcement of the new Allflex ‘A’ Tag which was now available as an Angus management tag. This one-piece management tag requires an Allflex A-Tag tagger or a Zee-Tag applicator and is also available in custom designs. They are still available and have been very popular since March when we began stocking them. The spring also brought with it a busy travel schedule as we were out selling tags at a number of industry events as well as some bull sales in Western Canada. This was very successful as we sold a number of tags at each event. We have continued this through the fall and will also be attending two events in January. Watch for me at Ag Days in Brandon, Manitoba and the Canadian Bull Congress in Camrose, Alberta. Tags will be available for order and a limited quantity will be available for pick up at these shows. Moving on to the Fall Edition, I talked a lot about the huge demand for Angus-tagged calves across Page 62

Angus World

Canada. At that time we were really hearing about it in the office and I hope every breeder reading this is fully aware of it. There are not enough tagged calves in Canada to meet the demand right now; the market is there—we need to fill it. What better reason to use the Angus tags than the fact that the demand is there. We also announced our feeder sale lineup for 2011 in this article and wow what a great fall run it was. Every one of our field staff put on a lot of miles this fall and reported back after each sale how fantastic the prices were and how much optimism there is across the country for the beef business right now. I cannot think of any better news than that to report. My last article talked about our new Feeder Calf Listing which launched on September 16 and I can report that we listed over 3000 calves throughout the fall. We will be continuing to list animals year round and you can contact me at any time for more information. I am also starting to receive requests to attend spring bull sales. Due to the success and popularity of this initiative, we have come up with some guidelines and requirements for breeders to take advantage of this service. I must stress this list specifically applies to my attendance at sales to sell tags and in no way affects the attendance of any of the Canadian Angus Association field staff or any other staff member’s attendance at your sale. The breeder hosting the sale will provide the following: • Submit request for staff attendance in writing (e-mail to chazenberg@cdnangus.ca is preferred) to the Association by January 20th, 2012 • Requests must include: name of the sale and names of all consigners, number of lots selling, date and start time, location contact information of breeder submitting request and any other relevant information • Breeders must be willing to guarantee a minimum number of tags sold at the sale; the number is to be agreed upon by the breeder and I and can be reached by offering free tags to buyers or by ensuring orders are placed • Promotion of the Angus Tag program to customers prior to the sale • Announcement from the block at the beginning of the sale outlining that tags are available for purchase on site • Ad placed in sale catalogue (provided by the Association) promoting the tag program • Ensure all animals in the sale are tagged with Angus RFID tags (excluding other breeds which sell the same day) • Table, chair and access to power The Association will ensure the following: • Review and confirm attendance at the event to the breeder submitting the request on or before January 26th, 2012. Association staff will attend as many sales as possible but it may not be possible to attend all of them due to scheduling conflicts and travel times. • Trade show style booth set up and staffed for the duration of the sale

Winter Edition 2011/12

• Inventory of tags on site for customers to pick up; if inventory runs out tags will be shipped to the customer with no shipping charge • Promotion of the sale in the Canadian Association e-newsletter and on the events calendar on the Canadian Angus Association website, and in the Canadian Angus Association blog (prior to sale and after sale) • Ads in various sizes for use in sale catalogue and other promotions We are all committed to working with you and everyone is welcome to contact me to discuss these and to see how this will work in your particular situation. I want to thank the breeders who have gone above and beyond to promote the tag program over the past year. We cannot do this without your help and I look forward to working with you again this year. I also wish to thank every breeder who uses Angus tags and who has promoted the program to your customers. I also want to say again that this list specifically applies to my attendance at sales to sell tags and in no way affects the attendance of any of the Canadian Angus Association field staff or any other staff member. Some of our products and some of the management tags are also having a price adjustment effective January 1, 2012. However, the price of our RFID tags has not changed. They are listed here as a reference. • RFID with matching maxi (4”x 3”) dangle tag $103.00 (bag of 25 sets) • Custom RFID with matching maxi (4”x 3”) dangle tag $113.00 (bag of 25 sets) • Custom RFID with matching large (3” x 2 ¼”) dangle tag $108.00 (bag of 25 sets) • Maxi (4”x 3”) dangle tags $30.00 (bag of 25) • Custom maxi (4”x 3”) dangle tags $35.00 • Spare tagger pins (for red tagger) $4.40 • Marking pens $6.50 As we move into our busiest time of year for tag sales we will continue to work on these initiatives to make them better and to work on new improvements to the program. I am always open to feedback on the program and to ideas on how we can make it better. I do not know how it will be possible to top the success we have had in 2011 but I will continue to work on doing just that.

Staff Profiles Cassie Bacon Interim Member Communications Specialist The New Year marks a time of beginning in every culture. We may be different shapes and sizes, have different ideas, and various traditions, but we all share recognition of the New Year and most even outline a few goals to get it kicked off! This year marks a huge and exciting step in my life. During my studies at Oklahoma State University I began a graphic design and livestock marketing business that just marked its fourth year. Through this experience I’ve had the opportunity to market cattle

C A N A D I A N A N G U S A S S O C I A T I O N

for some of the very best purebred breeders across the United States. Accepting a job with the most influential and exciting breed across the world is a new direction that I’m thrilled to be going in. The Canadian Angus Association is moving forward with marketing strategies that should influence every Angus breeder’s demand for both herd bulls and females. I couldn’t think of a more exciting time to come on board with the CAA!

Esther Stern Assistant Registrar My husband and I purchased our first quarter of land northeast of Calgary back in 1994. Here we have raised commercial cattle, horses, border collies and three daughters. Over the years with industry changes we have also added a millwright business. My education background is in business/accounting and for the last 18 years I have been self employed. Throughout this time my jobs included bookkeeping, direct sales, training and a financial advisor for 5 years. Now as a general leader with our local 4-H horse club,

the opportunity to join the Canadian Angus Association came to light at a perfect time in my life. So as of December 5, 2011, I am thrilled to be one of the newest members of the family. I look forward to getting to know all of our members and establishing strong dynamic relationships working in the registry department.

Stacy Price Registrar My name is Stacy Price, and I am very excited to be the newest member of the Canadian Angus Association’s staff. I was a born and raised Calgary girl. Twenty-six years ago I married my husband Gordon and became a farm wife, needless to say my life has never been the same, and I love it. In 1995 we moved from the family farm to our own place north of Crossfield, were we raised

cattle, sheep, grain and our three children Katie, Jennifer and Trent. Several years ago we sold the cattle but kept our Katahdin sheep that we still raise today. I look forward to my new career and the opportunity of meeting and speaking with producers in the New Year.
