Building aFoundation Future Females w ith

Customer Spotlight: Nehama Valley Angus When Neal Haverkamp decided to transition the family’s commercial cow herd to registered Angus with the intent to grow a bull market, he knew building the herd with foundation maternal genetics was imperative. Sourcing the initial registered females was only one part of the business plan; building a balanced breeding program with synchronization, fixed-time artificial insemination (AI), and proven ABS genetics helped create a model for long term success. From Commercial to Seedstock

Nemaha Valley Angus is situated in the northeastern part of Kansas. The first regisered heifers were purchased in 1993. Today, the cow herd consists of 300 Angus based commercial cows and 200 registered Angus females. Neal and his wife, Marya, manage and share ownership of the cow herd with his brothers, who also partner in the Haverkamp family diverse farming operations. From the start, Haverkamp relied on the advantages of AI to source elite genetics to meet his needs. After all, with experience in the commercial cow-calf business, Haverkamp knew the importance of valuable maternal genetics that would raise superior feeder cattle. Haverkamp established a breeding program using proven, 19

FALL 2013 Beef Focal Point

known genetics and synchronization. As the herd increased in numbers, the transition from AI with heat detection to fixed-time AI became a necessary management tool. Nemaha Valley’s ABS Representative, Brian Beying, served an integral role when switching to fixed-time AI. With the use of a mobile ABS breeding barn, Beying demonstrated to Haverkamp the efficiency and time savings of a fixed-time AI protocol. Beying’s expert advice, use of reliable synchronization protocols and the breeding barn enabled NVA to grow the herd while increasing the number of females bred AI without extra labor and time needed for heat detection. Today NVA has shortened their breeding and calving season, made improvements in efficiency and fertility of the cattle, and reduced labor while maintaining conception rates.

...Use of reliable synchronization protocols and the breeding barn enabled NVA to grow the herd while increasing the number of females bred AI without extra labor and time needed for heat detection.

Growing the Herd with Proven Genetics

Establishing reliable synchronization and AI protocols not only allowed for growth of the registered herd, but also served as a key factor in growing the now predominantly Angus commercial cow herd for NVA. Nemaha Valley Angus raises balanced, maternally influenced cattle with improved fertility that can also grade well. Haverkamp points out that while he puts emphasis on certain maternal traits he also monitors carcass quality. “It’s important to start at the end and work backwards

when building a breeding program. I can take feed efficiency and carcass information and build from there with the right genetics.” Adding, “If your customers are not successful, then other traits don’t really matter – because they won’t be back. Our job is to produce high quality beef for consumers while keeping a balanced approach on all other traits and selecting the right females to produce that product.”


Haverkamp knew he wanted to collect carcass and feed efficiency data on calves to complement with maternal traits. To facilitate this NVA began sending steers to the Kansas Angus Association Carcass Data Project (CDP) in 2001. With use of the CDP information, NVA has posted significant gains in quality and yield while earning numerous awards and above average Certified Angus Beef® (CAB) qualifying rates through the years. Their progress is shown below.

Providing Consistent, Quality Service

Haverkamp may have achieved his goal of an established bull market and demand for NVA genetics, but he didn’t settle there. He also wanted

identify superior females and sires. Haverkamp shares this information with NVA customers to help them with mating decisions. Looking to the future, Haverkamp wants to continue expanding and

• 2002 data – 60% Choice with 1 head CAB® • 2012 data – 50% CAB® with the highest ADG in the CDP at +4.26 lbs. • 2013 data – 71% CAB® and Prime Nemaha Vallley Angus’ accomplishments didn’t just happen by chance. Selection of proven and semi-proven ABS sires to deliver reliable, foundation genetics eliminated the guessing out of mating decisions for Haverkamp. The ABS Angus Sire Alliance test is one source Haverkamp turns to for profit-proven sires with Real World Data™. Many of NVA’s foundation female families are sired by Angus Sire Alliance graduates such as MORGAN’S DIRECTION and LEAD ON. Haverkamp states “I can really see the uniformity and consistency with the genetics I select. Using proven sires helps my confidence when making mating decisions.” Haverkamp does sample and breed to semi-proven sires for faster genetic gain in superior females but likes to see a bull’s first calf crop data before using him too heavily. Fellow breeders also took notice of NVA’s program and the quality of cattle Haverkamp was raising. Haverkamp capitalized on this influence, reaching his goal to market bulls private treaty to local producers. It didn’t take long before NVA had repeat customers and new buyers looking for their genetics.

Neal and Marya Haverkamp with their four children, Addie, Ian, Sullivan, Dane.

a way to help bull buying customers market their calves. In 2009 Nemaha Valley Angus became the first CAB® licensed feedlot in their area of Kansas. Haverkamp saw an opportunity to go beyond providing the genetics to standing behind the cattle he knows will excel in the feedlot. Haverkamp adds, “Now the feedlot business is just another piece of the total service I want to offer.” Beyond bulls and feeder cattle, Haverkamp also serves as an ABS Sub-Representative under Beying for ABS Global. Given Haverkamp’s knowledge of synchronization, AI and ABS Genetics it’s a natural fit for both Haverkamp and Beying. Haverkamp really emphasizes on providing full service to his customers. Using feedlot data to capture critical feed efficiency information and carcass data to see which sires produce consistent, high-quality carcass merit combined with the maternal, mothering ability and fertility data from the cow herd, Haverkamp can quickly

plans to host Nemaha Valley Angus’ first production sale to market both bulls and females. There is no doubt Haverkamp takes pride in the success of his breeding program and also the benefits he provides to NVA customers. Their success and longevity in the beef cattle business is built on a strong foundation of leading females that continue to generate premiums for the NVA herd. By capitalizing on the genetic and management advantages synchronization and fixed-time AI provide, Nemaha Valley Angus has established a program known for consistent, high-quality genetics and service for over 20 years.

Energy balance is probably the single most important nutritional factor related to poor reproductive success. Short and Adams (1988) prioritized the metabolic use of available energy in ruminants ranking each physiological state in order of importance as follows: 1) maintenance; 2) activity; 3) growth; 4) energy reserves; 5) pregnancy; 6) lactation; 7) additional energy reserves; 8) estrous cycles and initiation of pregnancy; and 9) excess energy reserves. The cows that have just calved and are suckling calves are using available energy for the milk first, and then using it to become rebred. She needs to have enough energy provided by her feed to do both. Concept•Aid™ contains a highly fortified vitamin and mineral profile along with organic sources of Zinc, Manganese and Copper, as well as Amaferm® to help you ultimately provide additional energy to the cow from the feed she

“Excessive weight loss or poor body condition can cause embryonic or fetal mortality, reducing pregnancy rates. Insufficient intake of nutrients including energy, protein, vitamins, and micro and macro minerals may all reduce reproductive performance.”

consumes. Making sure the cow is provided with all the nutrients she requires will set her up for a successful breeding season, maximizing your investment in the latest genetics. Amaferm® has been proven to increase neutral detergent fiber (NDF) digestibility in several studies.* The increase in NDF digestibility, means that more volatile fatty acids (VFA) are produced and absorbed by the animal. Since the VFA produced from the rumen are the major sources of energy for the beef or dairy cow, and comprise 75-85% of the metabolizable energy (ME) supply, this increase has positive reproductive benefits. The increased ME supply translates into more Net Energy for maintenance, gain and lactation. More energy is now also available for microbial growth, which leads to increased microbial crude protein (CP) flow to the intestine (Figure 1).

Rumen

Concept•Aid™ is much more than just another breeding mineral; it increases the cow’s energy supply. This is important because a cow only has 83 days to get re-bred in a yearly calving cycle. Excessive weight loss or poor body condition can cause embryonic or fetal mortality, reducing pregnancy rates. Insufficient intake of nutrients including energy, protein, vitamins, and micro and macro minerals may all reduce reproductive performance.

ESTROTECT™ heat detectors are guaranteed* to perform as well or better than any tool on the market. Its scratch-off technology allows you to keep tabs on which cows are in standing heat more efficiently and effectively than competitive heat detectors.

Don’t breed

Other heat detection methods cannot show evidence of multiple mountings without reapplying the product. With ESTROTECT, you only need to apply once per breeding cycle, and its different color varieties make it easier to manage your herd through its different breeding stages. ESTROTECT has shown in recent trials to have greater than 90-percent accuracy when compared to vigorous visual observation and penile deviated bulls. Don’t settle for false positives: Choose a heat detection program that guarantees positive results.

Breed With more scratches, the greater likelihood the cow has received multiple mountings and is ready to breed.

Visit www.ESTROTECT.com to request your free sample of ESTROTECT and take the doubt out of heat detection.
