Obituary - Merle Dean Hinze

Merle Dean Hinze, age 91, of Rising City, Nebraska, passed away March 2, 2022.

Merle was born November 18, 1930 in Hastings, Nebraska attended Rising Sun country school and Rising City High School, graduating in 1948.

On April 29, 1951 he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Shirley Drawbaugh of Rising City. To this union two children were born.

Merle loved being a farmer, along with raising cattle. Both Merle and Shirley were quite active in the Salers business. Merle served six years on the American Salers Association Board of Directors and Shirley actively participated in the Salers Belles organization. He thoroughly enjoyed watching the grandchildren and great grandchildren show cattle and participate in their activities.

He was a lifelong member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in rural Rising City. Merle served on numerous boards and took great satisfaction in working for the betterment of the community and causes he believed in. He served on the Rising City Rural Fire Board for 63 years.

He was preceded in death by his wife Shirley who passed away October 21, 2020; and grandson Clint Jones.

Obituary - Antoine Bonal

Antoine Bonal - 1940 - January 27, 2022

The Salers Breed has lost a great Ambassador. Antoine Bonal sadly passed away on January 27, 2022, at 82 years of age. He served as Executive Director of the Salers Herd Book in France from 1968-2001. The man was a visionary, passionate about Salers Cattle and the key figure in realizing the significant importations and establishment of the Salers Breed in North America and the United Kingdom.

The first bull Vaillant, S.A.C.# 1 arrived in Canada in 1972. Information meetings and presentations on Salers Cattle by the Herd Book were well received and interest was keen. Many hundreds of cows were bred with Vaillant semen, and the resultant calves were very impressive. Easy calving and vigorous. Soon many cattlemen were applying for import permits to bring Salers bulls and females into Canada and the United States.

The Salers Herd Book was busy receiving incoming clients, arranging cattle tours, accommodations for clients and coordinating all the related activities. Two hundred plus Salers Cattle were exported to Canada and the United States

from 1972-1990. The volume of work to carry out health testing, shipping, closing deals was huge. Antoine Bonal made sure it got done efficiently and first class.

He also organized several follow up trips with Salers Breeders from France coming to Canada and the United States to see firsthand how the breed was progressing. International business resulted from these visits as well as many lifelong friendships. Antoine Bonal was a quiet softspoken man, respected by all who had dealings with him. I treasure memories of time I spent in his company.

Thank you for all you have done for Salers Breeders. Information compiled by Ray Depalme – Shady Ridge Stock Farm. Alberta, Canada.

DNA Updates

Michigan State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

In March the Michigan Veterinary Diagnostic Lab began performing the Beta Mannosidosis testing for the Salers breed. Breeders should go to the Salers website and download the Testing form. Hair, blood or semen can all be tested by the $55 per sample test. Samples should read “Salers Test” and should be sent: Attention: Dr. Tuddow Thaiwong. Beta Mannosidosis test results are still needed for Donor Dam permits and Artificial Insemination permits if the individual can be determined clean via parentage.

DNA Parentage and Genotyping

The American Salers Association is now coordinating all DNA testing. Samples for parentage, coat color, horned/ polled and genomic testing should be sent direct to the office with the DNA typing form. The excel form is available from the Salers website under Herd Tools then DNA Testing. It is a three tab form, tab one is the summary and order page, tab two reflects the actual sample information including test selection and tab three represents any multi sire or dam testing information. If possible an electronic version of the form should be emailed to the ASA office to sherry@salersusa.org. If electronic options are not possible a printed version of the form should accompany all samples to the Registry Office. Breeders should plan on two months from start to finish so don’t delay in sending in samples if information is needed for spring sale catalogs.

Carcass Data Collection

No Substitute for the Real Thing

Salers cattle have been known for superior carcass traits since the days of the National Western Fed Beef Contest held in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show, and the many Champions entered by Roy Moore and his Rocking M Cattle Company. Salers cattle did well at the Great Western Beef Expo, Sterling, Colorado, and the Meat Animal Research Project back in the 1990’s. Steers from the Pitchfork Ranch, Meeteetse, Wyoming, were the highest grading Continental cattle at the Strategic Alliances Field Study put on by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Many cattle were fed with carcass data collected and submitted to ASA. More recently, ultrasound became more popular and carcass traits were being evaluated with this technology.

Will MacDonald, MacDonald Ranches, Bismarck, North Dakota, has been collecting carcass data for over 25 years. Cattle are fed on the ranch and hauled as many as 550 miles away to be processed at a packing facility and carcass data collected. Will’s experience with carcass data shows that Salers cattle have the ability to deposit marbling with less

external fat than you see with some breeds. Will had a load of cattle shipped in the fall of 2021 that went 20% Prime, 77% Choice and 3% Select. Plant average was 12% Prime at the time, so they beat that by 8%. The Certified Angus Beef average at that plant was 25% and this load of cattle went 33%. Will says, “the percentage CAB would have been higher, but 30% of that load was red-hided and they could not qualify for CAB at that time.”

Their Yield Grades were also outstanding. The plant average saw 20% Yield Grade 4’s and 5’s. There were only 5% Yield Grade 4’s and 5’s on the load Will shipped stating, “The cattle had a $67 premium per head, 20% of which was made up from the advantage in Yield Grade alone with almost no YG4’s and 5’s.” Will continues, “The ability to continue to add weight and maintain acceptable Yield Grades with Salers cattle may be one of the biggest assets in the feedyard. It gives you more options when you have a longer potential marketing window where the cattle don’t get obesely fat and turn into Yield Grade 5’s.”

Will has had good success getting the individual carcass data. “The cattle have been going to JBS in Grand Island, Nebraska, and they process cattle for data on Tuesdays, so we always get them hauled down on Monday evening. I communicate with the carcass data collection person beforehand and they email me the data after it is collected. It works really well.”

FALL 202216

Monte Rowell, Rowell Cattle Company, Ninnekah, Oklahoma, sends his steer and heifer calves to the feedlot about 90 miles away. Monte couldn’t be happier with how his cattle have done. “I really wanted to get the data to not only see how our cattle were doing, but I also wanted to get the data reported to the association so we could improve the accuracy of the carcass EPDs,” says Monte, “I need to know which bulls are getting the job done as far as their carcass data. I want my customers to be able to reap the benefits from the herd bulls I use and the sons of those bulls that they are purchasing.”

He uses electronic identification and puts in EID’s in all his cattle so he can get as much data as possible back when they go on to the packing plant. The last 10 years he ultrasound scanned the bulls he sells and all of his replacement heifers. “I think it is really important for breeders to put some cattle on feed and get the individual carcass data if possible. I know it can be hard to get at different times, but I think people need to know where they are at and the association needs to get the data reported to them to make the carcass EPDs as good as they can be.”

More recently, the Werth family of GG&T Salers, Quinter, Kansas, fed a group of 84 mixed steers and heifers that were sold to a packing plant in Kansas. Reid says, “they earned a $75.60 per head premium over the market. The cattle graded 100% Choice and higher with 56% going Certified Angus Beef or higher for Quality Grade.” Just like Will and Monte have experienced, the Yield Grade on the cattle was exceptional with 92% Yield Grade 3 or better and 0% Yield Grade 5 – almost unheard of in today’s market. “It’s been a good experience feeding the cattle. We’ve been real happy with the results and they’ve always done well,” Reid adds.

The fall of 2022 will see some high calf prices, but with the smaller inventory of cattle in the nation’s cow herd, it might just be time to consider feeding some of your calves and getting carcass data. You’ll be able to get firsthand knowledge of how your cattle feed and what the carcass data looks like. Make sure you get all things lined up to get the individual data collected and it may be helpful or necessary to have an electronic ID in their ear before the leave the ranch. And, most importantly, report the information to the association to further enhance your carcass EPDs.

The ability to continue to add weight and maintain acceptable Yield Grades with Salers cattle may be one of the biggest assets in the feedyard.

F eeding C ows w hile C oping w ith Drought & High Input Costs

Drought conditions influenced forage and grain production for nearly two years. Forage and grain yields are expected to be somewhere between 1/3 and ½ of normal. Pasture yield is also low or already out. Feeding and managing cows while coping with these conditions is a challenge complicated further by costs associated with feed delivery. Cow-calf producers must incorporate three considerations that greatly affect cow feeding costs under current economic conditions: feeding group size, energy density of feed and fuel cost.

Feeds (or mixed diets) that require extensive preparation time (loading, grinding, mixing, and delivering) will create additional feeding costs not generally considered in least cost ration formulation. Diesel price at $4.50/gallon and fuel use of 4 gallons/ hour determine hourly cost of using a tractor to prepare and deliver feed at $18/ hour. For an operation running diesel-fueled equipment for one hour to feed a group of 50 cattle under these conditions, the daily fuel cost alone would be $0.36/cow. Grouping cows or growing cattle in larger groups to maximize feed delivery over groups to feed is an additional consideration under current economic conditions.

Energy density of the feed ingredient selected is directly proportional to its volume. A full bucket on a 6-foot skid steer contains 800 lb of grain but fewer than 200 lb of hay. Loading 800 lb of hay will require four times the amount of movement (time) than loading 800 lb of corn.

Energy density of the feed ingredient selected also determines daily feeding cost.

A bushel of corn grain is currently selling for $7.50 ($13.39/cwt) while a ton of hay may be purchased anywhere from $130 to $200/ton. Assuming a producer would purchase hay at $150 ($7.50/cwt) containing 15% moisture and 55% total digestible nutrients (TDN), the cost per unit of TDN would be $320/ton ($16.04/cwt). A ton of TDN from $7.50-per-bushel corn would be $346 ($17.29/cwt) considering corn grain contains 12% moisture and 88% TDN. If the TDN requirement of a cow is 15 lb/day and using feed price examples described above, the daily requirement may be met using 27 lb of hay ($2.41/cow) or 17 lb of corn grain ($2.59/cow). As already proposed, the difference, $0.18/cow, may be lost if feeding equipment (tractor or tractor and mixer) must run for an additional 30 minutes while feeding hay.

Cow-calf operators are not used to feeding high-energy diets to cows. Choosing to reduce fuel and feed costs by opting to feed high-energy diets requires some preparation. Feeding from 2 to 4 lb of hay is also recommended to manage intake and prevent grain engorgement.

Protein requirements of mature beef cows, although low, require that, once diets are formulated, dietary protein concentration is evaluated to determine if it meets requirements. A minimum of 8% is required by mature cows that just weaned a calf to as much as 12% for lactating cows. Incorporating a high-protein co-product, such as distillers grains and solubles, is one way to properly balance the metabolizable and degradable protein requirements of cows, particularly young cows, while reducing the amount of starch cows are expected to consume.

Although mixing equipment may not be necessary, allocating at least 12 to 18 inches of space per cow on the feeding trough or space is required to prevent overeating by boss cows. Cows expected to consume 10 to 15 lb of corn grain daily may be able to ingest this amount in fewer than 3 hours. Delivering hay in a round bale feeder within a fenced area and then restricting access to this area to less than 4 hours daily would eliminate the need to deliver hay daily in a bunk or rolled out on the ground.

Cow-calf operators are advised to work with their nutritionist to evaluate alternative energy-dense feed sources and to develop diet and dietary management plans to reduce feed and feeding costs.

2022 Junior National

The 2022 American Salers Junior National Show was held July 2nd-8th, at the Heart of the Ozarks Fairgrounds in West Plains, Missouri. The theme for the week was “MO Town Showdown.” The juniors left with many fun memories.

To start off the week, we had a Stock Show U Clinic. We split the kids into a younger group and an older group. Everyone was excited to be participating and learning new information. Following the Stock Show U Clinic was the trivia contest. Many teams were very close in points throughout the contest, and we even had to have tie-breaker questions. That evening, we had a fish fry, opening ceremonies, and a live band. We also had our annual Barnyard Olympic activities, led by the Junior Board. Juniors were divided into teams of two and had to do relays that involved a three-legged race, getting a Hirsch Feed & Supply hat signed by owner, Larry Hirsch, a watermelon slice eating contest, getting gummy worms out of a whipped cream pie with only their mouth, and finishing the race by popping a confetti cannon signifying the team’s victory. This gave all of the exhibitors the chance to socialize with people from other states and make new friends, all of which was happening over the Fourth of July. The exhibitors enjoyed spending such a special holiday together.

The next day was an exciting one for the juniors. To start the day off the juniors participated in livestock judging and coloring contests. Juniors judged three classes of cattle and a class of breeding does. The Intermediate and Senior age divisions all gave a set of reasons on a bull class while the juniors answered questions. The PeeWees enjoyed participating in a coloring contest while the older kids were judging. In the afternoon, the kids competed in a speech contest, and the cooking contest, which was a new contest this year. It was made to give kids a chance to show off their cooking skills and knowledge of their dish. Smiles and laughter could be heard around the room as each team prepared their meals. After the judges tasted many delicious meals, the older kids started preparing for their board and royalty interviews.

Early in the morning, the next day, the kids headed to the scales for steer weigh in. Then there was a short break before starting the team fitting contest. Exhibitors helped each other get the cattle washed and dried before taking them to the fitting area. Teams were broken up by Intermediate and Senior division teams and PeeWee and Junior teams. Everyone fit their animals and then exhibited them in the ring to show off their hard work. Every division was full of stiff competition, making it hard for the judge to choose a winner. Each of the older kids then helped a group of the younger kids, mentoring them through getting their calves show ring ready. Once the calves were washed again the exhibitors got ready for the team sales contest. This was a contest we brought back after a few years of not having it. The kids seemed to enjoy it, and the Seniors had to think on their feet due to only knowing their topic 15 minutes before their presentation time. That afternoon members had the opportunity to learn about embryo transfer processes and gain more knowledge on the cattle industry. Soon after, you could find Board Members getting locked and loaded with water balloons in every hand, buckets of water filled, and juniors anxiously awaiting the “ready, set, go” for the annual water fight held every year. Anywhere you looked you could see a water hose hooked up, water balloons everywhere, kids and parents getting soaked, and memories being made. The joy, laughter, and water outweighed the Missouri heat that afternoon.

Thursday, was another full day for the exhibitors with the bucket calf show, the no fit showmanship contest, and the annual ASJA meeting. We had one bucket calf exhibitor, and the majority of the exhibitors participated in the showmanship contest followed by the overall showmanship contest. That afternoon was open prior to the annual meeting and the Salers Family never wastes their time. During that break you could find a few of the Board Members and many juniors in the show ring playing their own version of monkey in the middle keep away. One after the other more and more juniors would walk by and join in on the fun. The Board Members then headed to prepare for the meeting and were shortly joined by the other members and their families.

The last day of the 2022 Salers Junior National Show meant an early wake up call for show day. Due to the heat we moved the showtime up to 8:00 a.m. Friday night was the banquet which was exciting and sentimental for everyone. Winners were announced, a great meal was had, and we all had quality time with our Salers family.

Without the support of the sponsors for the 2022 Salers Junior National it wouldn’t have been possible to have this show. We greatly appreciate all of the support and we thank everyone for it. Be on the lookout for the Board Members releasing the location for the 2023 Salers Junior National Show, and make sure to keep your schedule open. You will not want to miss all of the fun next year brings.

Learning for future PersonaL and Business success

In this article, I suggest leadership, team building, supervision and interpersonal relationships that will be increasingly important to your personal and beef production business success. You must increase your understanding of and skills in each. Suggestions are provided.

Leadership

A look back is needed to help us understand the increasing importance of leadership. When I grew up on our Thumb of Michigan farm in the middle of the 20th century, the biggest determinant of farm success was plain old hard work. As farms grew and agriculture became more complex, the importance of managing animals and crops – operational management – was added to hard work.

In recent years, two trends have added leadership to hard work and management. The first is the increasing importance of external forces, meaning that successful operational management is no longer enough to ensure success. The second is the increasing size of the workforce.

What, then, is this thing called leadership? Marcus Buckingham defines leadership as “Great leaders rally people to a better future.” Table 1 from Accelerate: Building Strategic Agility for a Faster-

Moving World by John P. Kotter contrasts management and leadership.

The two lists are best summarized as:

• Managers decide

• Leaders rally

Note: The leadership function is more focused on the future, on people –partners, employees – and on interpersonal relationships/feelings.

Suggestions to improve your understanding of and capacity for leadership:

• The Five Levels of Leadership by John Maxwell

• Discover Your TRUE NORTH: Becoming an Authentic Leader by Bill George

• Servant Leadership: How You Can Achieve Great Relationships and Results edited by Ken Blanchard and Renee Broadwell

Team Building

Today, many ranch and farm businesses have multiple families in leadership positions. A partnership is led by a team. The skilled sole proprietor owners typically have little or no experience in leading a team, and the new partners often have little or no leadership experience. This can be a recipe for disaster. Leadership and team building are required.

Since the owners of a partnership are a team, they need to make team decisions. This requires making the team a priority and some structure. Think

The future will be here before you know it. Will you have the knowledge and skills to succeed in the challenging and opportunityfilled future of beef production?
FALL 202232

about what would happen to your animal feeding performance or to your planting or harvesting timing if you had no structure. A team is no different; without some structure, success is unlikely. I believe that in almost all cases this structure involves regularly scheduled and effectively led meetings.

Team success is more than just having structure. It starts with a common vision for the future of the business. The following crucial team requirements are from the Lencioni reading listed below:

1. Partners trust one another.

2. The partner team engages in unfiltered conflict around ideas.

3. Partners commit to decisions and plans of action.

4. Partners hold one another accountable for delivering against those plans.

5. Partners focus on the achievement of collective results.

Suggestions to improve your understanding of and capacity for building teams:

• Making Vision Stick by Andy Stanley

• The Secret of Teams: What Great Teams Know and Do by Mark Miller

• The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business by Patrick Lencioni

Supervision

The current and future business environment necessitates an increase in the quality of supervision. Employee motivation research is increasingly supportive of the idea that employees are more productive, engaged and fulfilled when their psychological needs for choice, connection and competence are fulfilled. Choice (also called autonomy) requires that you perceive you have choices. Connection (also called relatedness) requires that you feel a sense of belonging and genuine connection to others. Competence requires that you demonstrate increasing skill over time.

The following are suggestions for enhancing your ability to provide choice, connection and competence in your workplace:

• The Truth About Employee Engagement: A Fable About Addressing the Three Root Causes of Job Misery by Patrick Lencioni

• Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work … and What Does by Susan Fowler

• Master Your Motivation: Three Scientific Truths for Achieving Your Goals by Susan Fowler

• “Success for Supervisors:” A program I have developed with four 15- to 20-minute videos and a workbook. For more information, contact Robert Milliganor (651) 647-0495.

Interpersonal Relationships

Think for a moment what your life would be like without interpersonal relationships – no one to interact with, talk to or even email or text. Life really is about relationships.

All relationships have one characteristic in common: trust. Think about relationships that have deteriorated. What happened? Almost always, the deterioration resulted from one or both parties violating the trust of the other person.

Enhancing our interpersonal relationships requires effort, usually including altering our behavior. The effective use of many communication tools including active listening, and asking questions is also required. Most importantly, developing relationships with partners, employees, family members, friends and trusted advisers must be a priority.

Suggestions to improve your interpersonal relationships include:

• Everyone’s A Coach by Ken Blanchard and Don Shula

• Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

• How Full is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton

• Start with WHY by Simon Sinek

A Final Thought

The future will be here before you know it. Will you have the knowledge and skills to succeed in the challenging and opportunity-filled future of beef production? Begin now to increase your commitment to learning.

Determining How Much Forage a Beef Cow Consumes Each Day

It’s been dry in many parts of the country across the United States. In just a few short months, many producers will be relying on feeding some form of harvested forages. The following is an article by Rick Rasby, Beef Specialist, University of Nebraska, that may help producers make good decisions on how much hay may be needed to get the cow herd through the winter and on to green grass.

A frequent question from producers is "how much will my cows eat on a daily basis"? Producers want to meet the cows' nutrient requirement, but sure don't want to over-feed expensive forages. With the dry conditions this past summer and harvested forages at a premium, closely estimating the amount of feed needed to get through the winter and early spring will be important to contain cost.

The Difference Between Intake on a Dry Matter and As Is Basis

This can be a challenging concept to explain – what the difference between dry matter and as-fed – especially when nutriments for beef

cows are on a dry matter basis. Intake on a dry matter basis means that the forage doesn't include moisture. However, we know that the forages contain moisture and not all forages contain the same amount of moisture. So if forage intake can be determined on a dry matter basis, it can easily be converted to an "as is" or "as-fed" basis.

As an example, if it were determined the daily dry matter intake of a group of 1,200 pound cow eating an average quality hay is 24 pounds per head and the hay that they are consuming is 88% dry matter, these cows would consume about 27 (24 pounds/.88) pounds per head per day on an as-fed basis.

If the same group of 1,200 pound cows are fed a ration where part of the ration called for corn silage to be fed at 10 pounds per head per day on a dry matter basis and the corn silage is 35% dry matter and 65% moisture, the pounds of corn silage in the diet would be 28.5 (10 pounds/.35) pounds per head per day on an as-fed basis. Remember that of the 28.5 pounds of silage, 18.5 pounds is water and 10 pounds is silage.

What Determines Daily Forage Intake

There are a number of different factors that determine the daily intake of a cow. The primary factors are cow weight, forage quality, and stage of production (gestating or lactating). When feeding the same forage, cows that weigh 1,300 pounds will consume more on a daily basis compared to lighter weight cows that weigh 1,100 pounds. In

FALL 202242

cows that are lactating will consume more feed than cows that are not lactating.

Forage quality impacts dry matter intake of cows. As the forage quality increases, indicated as an increase in TDN content of the forage, the amount of the forage that the cow can consume also increases. As forage quality increases, there is more leaf as compared to stem. When quality is low, there is more stem, therefore more cell wall contents that are not as easily digested - the forage does not pass through the rumen very fast.

In addition, as forages increase in maturity, there is an increase in lignin content. Lignin is not digested by the rumen microbes.

A good example of how forage quality impacts the amount a cow can consume daily is wheat straw. Wheat straw is low in protein and energy, 4.0% crude protein and 40% TDN. When cows have full access to wheat straw, they don't quit eating wheat straw because they don't like it, they quit eating it because they can't stuff anymore into their rumen. Straw has such a low digestibility that it takes extra time in the rumen for it to be digested and passed through the rumen before more can be consumed. Daily intake on a dry matter basis may be 1.6% to 1.8% of her body weight. In comparison, corn silage will typically be about 70% TDN and lactating beef cows can easily consume 2.5% to 2.7% of their body weight on a dry matter basis of this feed.

There are some "thumb rules" to help estimate daily feed intake of cows on a dry matter basis consuming forages of differing quality when they are either gestating or lactating.

• When forage quality is low (52% TDN or less) and cows are not lactating, they will consume 1.8% and lactating cows about 2.0% of their weight on a dry matter basis.

• If the forage quality is average (TDN content between 52% and 59%), non-lactating cows will consume about 2.0% to 2.1.% and lactating cows about 2.3% of their body weight daily on a dry matter basis of this forage.

As an example, if the forage were 55% TDN and lactating cows on the average weigh 1,200 pounds, then it could be estimated that they would eat 28 (1200 pounds x 0.023) pounds of hay daily on a dry matter basis. If the hay were 88% dry matter, on an "as-fed" basis, cows would eat about 32 (28 pounds/.88) pounds daily. If there were 200 head of cows in the herd, it would take about 3.2 ton of this hay per day [(200 head x 32 lb/hd/da)/2000lb] not accounting for any waste.

Estimating daily feed intake of your cow herd is the first step in determining the amount of forage that is needed to be on-hand for a harvested forage feeding program. When forage availability is tight like it is during drought, being able to determine how much inventory needed will help enhance the profit potential of the cow/calf enterprise. g

Back to Our Origins

The wonderful breed of cattle we produce had their beginnings in the country of France. As a Salers breeder for over three decades, the opportunity became available for us, along with our new friends and Salers Breeders - Charles and Kathy Patton of NC, to visit the French countryside and the cattle breeders of the homeplace of the Salers cattle.

The Salers cattle are predominantly located in the Auvergne area of France (highlighted by the dark area on the map). They are considered a dual purpose breed in France - Beef and Dairy. So, we toured Salers beef and dairy farms in the Cantal area of this region. This area is composed of volcanic material and is the outer section of the Alpine foothills. As a ‘thank you’ to our French Salers farmers, we left them with a banner where we all signed as a way for them and us to remember the visit and fellowship.

Salers Dairy Farm Visit

Our first visit was at the farm of Pierre Lespine (His dairy farm known as Les Montagnes de Pierre). He and his wife had non-farm jobs in the city of Lyon for many years, but Pierre wanted to get back to the agriculture of France specifically in making cheese. After petitioning the French government, they were awarded a farm in the Cantal area. He and his family have done well. They have won the Gold Award for quality Salers cheese for 2021 and 2022. Quite a feat for only being in agriculture for 8 years. Their slogan is 'Au bout d’ un reve, un fromage' which translates to 'after a dream, a cheese'.

The manufacturing process of SALERS cheese must follow a historic "standard recipe", however each SALERS cheese batch is unique, has its own identity, its own taste. The authentic Salers Cheese can only be from Salers cows grazing pastures from April 15 to November 15 WITHOUT any supplementation. The first stage of production will take place immediately after the end of milking the Salers cows. Then, rennet (a solution to start the cheese to curd) is added to raw, whole milk to facilitate coagulation. This process is mixed about in a wooden

processor by hand. The curd is cut manually using the freniale (specialized tool). It's about getting regular grains or curd size. The remaining liquid is then evacuated and the curd is gathered in a compact mass. The curd is deposited in the press device where it will undergo progressive pressing, interrupted by cutting the cheese tome (solid material) into blocks and turning it over. These steps are done manually as many times as necessary. The pressed tome is then left to mature for several hours. (This phase promotes the development of lactic ferments present in the milk).The tome is then crushed and salted. The mixture of the tome with the salt is done by successive stirrings. The tome mixed with salt will then be left to rest for at least 3 hours. The tome is packed manually in a mold lined with a fine linen cloth. This canvas serves as a drain. They then put the famous plate which stamps the authenticity of SALERS cheese in forming the mold. Pictured is the ‘stamp’ of the plate.The mold, used to manufacture SALERS, has a particular shape with 2 bulges at the top and bottom forming the cheese wheel. The tome in the mold is placed under the “pesadou”, where it will undergo an increasing amount of pressing for 48 hours. Thus the draining will be finished and the piece will then take its final shape. The piece is turned over several times during

these 48 hours. It is then placed in the refining cellar where the SALERS cheese wheel will remain for a minimum of 3 months.

Salers Breeder Visit

Our visit with the LaFon family was eye opening! This family has been breeding Salers cattle since the late 1800s. Giberre Lafon, the current patriarch of the farm, has so many awards from showing Salers cattle at the national show that his home is lined with plaques, awards, and Grand Champion bells. As stated earlier, they have many Salers show awards for their bulls but not so with their females until 2019 where they had the France Grand Champion Salers Cow nicknamed

The community in the area are so very supportive of the Salers cattle and the trek to move them to the mountains on the small roads is a ceremony involving ALL of the community in a festival type atmosphere. The Lafon family graciously provided us with a Salers steak with cheese potatoes and wine at a local restaurant.

‘Hoosie’. She is depicted on their farm sign and here she is in the pasture. Gilles was the one at the halter when they won. Here is one of her 2 year old sons being used in the pasture. Recently, this bull was sold to a cattleman in Poland.

The LaFon family was so delightful and willing to talk ‘cattle’ on every level. Interestingly, they do not sell bull semen or do embryos as Giberre believes that is so unnatural. They have 105 mature cows and had already placed them in the upper mountain for the summer grazing. The cows carry a bell with a leather belt around their neck so they can be found in the fog or to help identify them. Each herd has some slight differences in the bells or a special engraving.

The Cantal Salers members provided us with a reception with the President of the Department of Cantal Agriculture, Bruno Faure. We were greatly flattered to have them recognize us American Salers breeders. Many other local Salers breeders, political officials and agricultural dignitaries were in attendance. Again, Charles and I presented them with a signed banner for them to hang in the governmental building reception hall.

Pictured are Charles Patton, Nelson McDaniel (translator), Bruno Faure, Mark Slusher, Giberre LaFon

The eight day trip was more fun than expected. To see the French cattlemen take care of the animals, the land, and integrate with their communities was just wonderful. Being on a non-traditional tourist trip where we actually got to see the ‘real’ French countryside and the ‘real’ French people was very special. And of course, Carla states the local food was wonderful but their desserts were out of this world! If I may say, the local wine/cheese was pretty darn good also! If you ever get the chance to take a trip to France to the Salers region, do not hesitate. It is fantastic to be a breeder of Salers Cattle and to have made a connection with other Salers breeders around the world. Not many breeds can say that!!
