Dave’s Desk

Last issue I talked about the cattle industry entering a new era. We continue to benefit from strong prices of all classes of cattle. That fact may be a factor in the number of calves that are kept to be developed as bulls. I would like to share my thoughts on factors that may affect the bull market next spring. To serve as a little background, I would suggest that going into this spring’s bull sale season, the commercial bull pens were rather empty. Bulls that were used a year ago were purchased at an amount that by today’s standards was lower. Those bulls could be marketed after last year’s breeding season or into the fall for a

pretty healthy dollar. Many commercial cattlemen took advantage of that situation to reduce the number that they wintered. Cattlemen were able to recover much of the original purchase price of their bulls. This spring their bull pens were replenished with young bulls at a higher price. That being the case, it makes no sense to market any more bulls than what is absolutely necessary this year. So, commercial bull pens are stocked with higher dollar, younger bulls. The need for bulls next spring may indeed be less than the need this past spring. The situation in some areas may be exacerbated with the limited amount of rainfall resulting in less feed stuffs. It may be something to keep in mind when determining the number of bulls put into the bull sale pen this fall. I am just speculating but that is my opinion. Included on the pages of this issue, you find results of many Bull Sales all of which were very successful. Keep the ball rolling, market your best. The good

news is the lower quality bulls are still worth allot of money as commercial feeder cattle. I have got ito a bit of a rant on quality which is not a result of seeing poor quality being marketed, but more as encouragement to keep the quality high. Remember ‘Quality always sells’. Until next time,

Premium Beef a Crossover Success by Laura Nelson Regardless of the economy, “hedonic” desires drive demand The economics just didn’t add up. Median household net wealth decreased 27% between 2000 and 2010, according to the U.S. Consumer Price Index. Canadians were in the same financially leaky boat. “Research would show that during an economic downturn, people tend not to buy premium products, to a point where they will go to a private brand or a lower price competitor to save money,” University of Guelph (Ontario) business and economics professor Tanya Mark says. “For any premium brand, we would certainly expect sales to decrease.” Yet in 2010, just after the toughest segment of America’s Great Recession – December 2007 through May 2009 – she attended an Ontario cattle business conference and heard about a branded beef company with sales results that were completely counterintuitive. She tried to explain the record-breaking sales with various other theories. But the product category’s total consumption was down, too, another sign that the premium end should have been slipping. In the first decade of this century, annual per capita red meat consumption decreased from 120.8 pounds to only 108.7 pounds. Meanwhile, this brand went from $350 million in annual sales in 2000 to more than $775 million ten years later, with 40% more pounds sold (See Chart below). The premium product did follow one trend of its category, however, mirroring record high beef prices. “It’s a very well-known theory that as price decreases, the quantity demanded increases?” she says. “When you see a very large increase in sales, you must have dropped your prices, right?” Wrong. The company’s average annual price moved from $1.15 per pound in 2000 to $1.64 in 2010. “So, even though the price continues to rise, and it is still rising, demand is still increasing,” Mark says.

To figure out why, she and colleagues in Canada, France and Australia looked at total monthly sales volumes for the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand from 2000 through 2010, plus a breakout of monthly foodservice and retail sales volumes from 2006-2011. Results formed the basis for a white paper for CAB available at http://www.cabpartners.com/news/research.php and entitled, “Cross-Category Indulgence: Why Do Some Premium Brands Grow During Recession?” Overall industry trends were cross-referenced with wholesale beef prices reported by Urner-Barry for a unique data set that allowed the team of marketing researchers to analyze overall demand throughout an entire business cycle. But making sense of it all would take more than numbers, so Mark turned to her expertise in consumer insights. “There is a lot of research around luxury, alpha brands that show our status – it’s signaling,” Mark says. “We aspire for a premium brand or a luxury brand to signal to others we are successful.” Food in general is considered a utilitarian good, a necessity for survival. “But because CAB is a premium food product, our research would show that it is, in fact, a luxury good because consumers tend to derive a lot more pleasure from it,” Mark explains. That changes the standard economic application, and adds an important phrase to cattlemen’s vocabulary: hedonic consumption. From the Greek word for “pleasurable,” it’s a descriptor for any good that’s purchased primarily for the pleasant experience it delivers, but it better deliver. “Consumers making hedonic purchases are less sensitive about the price of a product when the objective of the purchase is a pleasurable experience,” the white paper says. “Based on this research, we would argue that desire, that demand just doesn’t go away – we still have this desire to enjoy life and derive pleasure when we’re consuming things. But we’re also constrained by our budgets during an economic recession,” Mark says. The data shows a desire for luxury items is universal and certainly not guided by affluence. “Although luxury goods were hit hard during the recession,” the paper notes, “the stark recovery of

Herd Reference Edition 2015 *

this category cannot be explained by purchasing habits of the affluent consumer alone. One possible explanation for this surprising increase in demand for luxury goods is related to the substitution effect.” That’s where the multi-market data on CAB sales came in handy. When the researchers started comparing the data of restaurant sales against grocer sales, they found significant impact in what they termed “cross-category indulgence,” or more simply put, substitution. “We all want to dine out and eat the best food and enjoy and indulge. But we can’t all do that all the time, especially in a recession,” Mark says. “So going to a cross-category is this ‘dining in’ where you’re still buying the premium cut and enjoying it at home.” Buying that premium, high-priced steak at the retail store is worth the pleasurable experience – as long as the product consistently delivers. What goes out of the wallet must be made up for with taste-bud gratification. “If there is a message for anyone in this research, it would be the importance of a premium product,” Mark says. “There are more and more people who want that hedonic consumption and really, really want a premium product.” Fortunately, marbling is a production trait for which cattlemen can select and manage. That’s important if beef producers want to continue to swim against a current of economic realities – cattle prices are more than healthy, which makes beef prices higher than many consumers can afford as a necessity item. The only thing that will keep them coming back to the meat counter is quality – or the promise of a hedonic experience. “The message to producers is – the cost of acquiring Certified Angus Beef-type cattle – or whatever it takes to get that premium product – is becoming more and more important,” Mark says. “If you’re paying attention to this, you’re going to increase your profits, right?” It has staying power, too, the research indicates. In the years since Mark and colleagues were crunching the Recession-era numbers, the CAB brand hit an eighth consecutive year of record sales in 2014. “When the economy recovers, consumers not only continue to indulge in a premium brand in one category – dining in – but also return to consuming the premium brand in general – dining out,” Mark says. “It comes back to that notion of the quality of the beef. If you have a premium, quality product to offer consumers, the likelihood of your product experiencing similar growth is highly likely,” she says. “If red meat is not doing well, but you see Certified Angus Beef is doing well, we’re arguing that the only reason is its quality. And consumers want quality.” Contact: Steve Suther, Industry Information Director, SSuther@certifiedangusbeef.com Certified Angus Beef LLC (330) 465-0820


Beef Demand Index: Consumers Crave Quality Steve Suther, Director, Industry Information, Certified Angus Beef LLC More of the best at higher prices. Beef consumers demanded it in 2014, and they’re still on track through the first quarter of 2015. That’s according to Kansas State University (K-State) economist Ted Schroeder and Cattle-Fax analyst Lance Zimmerman, who created a demand model as a graduate project under Schroeder in 2010 and recently updated it. Demand for the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB) brand kept up a strong pace of growth, especially in the last five years, adding 112 percentage points to reach 229 on a 100-point base. That 129% increase in 12 years was up by more than 20 points from the 2013 mark (See Charts). The K-State model uses 2002 as the base year, and showed demand for commodity USDA Choice beef near the 110 level for most of the following years. It jumped to 120 in 2010 before eroding for three years to fall below 100 and recovered to 108 last year. Zimmerman says Choice demand held up well in early 2015, too. “The Choice [analogous to Canadian AAA] spot market in April was $31 over a year ago with demand up 9%,” he says. “Select [as Canadian AA] beef was up $15 but volume has fallen so much in 2015 that it equates to a decrease in demand of more than 30% from the first quarter of 2014.” He notes much of the increase in Choice grading, as cattle are finished at heavier weights, just moves marbling up a few points and lifts up what would have been Select carcasses. “We’re at a point at these price levels where any apparent strength in prices is driven more by a decline in supply than by a demand base,” Zimmerman says. Schroeder says the soaring demand for CAB is actually volume driven, for the brand has seen 10 consecutive fiscal-year increases in pounds sold. “It’s a market-share growth brand, with sales volume up some 11% since 2010 while Choice volume declined by 16%,” he points out.

At prices much higher than 2010, the percentage CAB wholesale beef price premium over Choice declined from 4.5% then to 3.5% last year, Schroeder says. However, Zimmerman notes CAB is an increasing subset of Choice (now accounting for more than 15.2% of it), so the brand’s higher cutout value is helping to lift wholesale Choice prices as well. Schroeder says grid and formula premiums paid for CAB-qualifying cattle are up by more than 35%, compared to those in 2010-11. “That’s consistent with this growing demand for CAB, and it suggests packers make sufficient money on the program to where they have become more aggressive about targeting and attracting CAB cattle,” he says. Some of that relates to the option of marketing the 74% of non-qualifying black cattle into other programs “that carry some of the Angus value banner,” he adds. The demand model shows a combined category of Choice, Branded Choice and Prime, for which demand increased more than 10 points in 2014 to reach 161 on that 100-point index. That was obviously bouyed by the rise in CAB demand, but Zimmerman points out Prime beef has also increased in both price and supply – the latter continuing up 15% in the first quarter of 2015. Global demand is represented in the model by its use of world per-capita consumption. “A huge percentage of it is domestic demand, but there are global implications,” Zimmerman says. “Beef prices are up all over the world, and they are value-conscious, too, looking at pork and chicken. White-marbled, grain-fed U.S. beef competes at the higher price point only by virtue of its quality.” Does retail or foodservice demand play the larger role now? Schroeder says today’s beef consumers are less price sensitive, after a few peeled away to settle on pork or chicken at lower prices. Demand at the retail level may

depend on better consumer education so that they accurately discern the value of CAB versus lower-quality Angus brands. On the foodservice side, he sees the overall business recovery boomlet leveling off, “with fewer big steak dinners paid for by corporations,” leading that area of demand to plateau. Zimmerman gives more of an edge to dining out. “When I first wrote the paper in 2010, retail had led us out of the recession,” he notes. “But foodservice led the way in 2014 and that sector had the best first quarter in 2015 in a long time. With slow and steady growth in consumer buying power and the greater flexibility of menu pricing, I think the tables are turned in favor of restaurants now.” They agree that overall, demand for CAB can rise again in 2015. “Recovery in beef demand across the industry started in 2013 with primarily end meats, and not really the cuts we typically hang our hats on,” Zimmerman says. “But CAB demand growth has been for all of the cuts and the brand is positioned well for another good year.” Schroeder says, “As long as CAB continues to have growing sales volume, and price premiums do not suffer too much relative to Choice, there is no reason CAB cannot continue to have a demand index similar to recent years, though growth may slow in the next year or two.” The related white paper, “Defining and Quantifying Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) Brand Consumer Demand,” updated in 2013, can be viewed at http://www.cabpartners.com/news/research.php.

High Beef Prices, High Expectations by Laura Nelson Canadian producers must double high-quality beef production to meet demand Canadian cattlemen are producing the highest quality beef ever, and opportunities continue to grow. In the past three years alone, Canadians have increased the percentage of beef grading AAA by 8 percent, and Prime-grading beef increased, too. Larry Corah, who oversees producer outreach north of the 49th Parallel for the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB) brand, said by this spring, 2015 was already shaping up as a phenomenal year for quality grade in Canada. In fact, for the first nine weeks, 2.4 percent of the beef mix graded Prime—still small, but 140 percent higher than the minuscule 1 percent that graded Prime in 2012. “Prime is a product that is heavily demanded. It has immense value in the global marketplace,” Corah said. “Prime is what differentiates Canadian and U.S. beef from the rest of the world.” Beef that graded AAA moved from 54.7 percent of the grading mix in 2012 to 62 percent in 2015. That mirrors trends in the U.S., where Choice-grading beef jumped from 62.7 percent Choice to 69.2 percent Choice between 2009 and 2014. Double up on quality? In 2014, CAB licensed partners sold 40.5 million pounds of the branded beef to Canadian consumers, but less than two-thirds of that was produced in-country. To qualify for CAB, beef must grade in the upper 2/3 of AAA and meet nine additional carcass quality specifications. “Easily, this could be a 50-million-pound market, and it could all be produced in Canada,” Corah said. “Canadian consumers want Canadian beef. That’s why we want to increase production here.” Beef industry leaders point to drought, market dynamics and genetic tools to explain the climbing quality grade trends in North America. They presented updates and insights this spring in Lethbridge, Alta., at the Feeding for Profit seminar. “Because of the drought, we got rid of a lot of the poor quality cows,” John Paterson said. “So the quality of the cowherd is probably better than it’s ever been in the history of our industry.” The director of producer education for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (and former Montana Extension beef specialist) pointed to the southern U.S. Texas alone has liquidated 25 percent of its cowherd – 1.472 million head – in the past decade, primarily due to drought, but also feed prices, operating costs and competition for crop land. In Canada, the post-“Mad Cow” market crash had similar impacts. “In Canada, those guys who stuck it out are finally getting rewarded,” Brian Perillat of Can-Fax said. “Anecdotally, we’re finally seeing the value of breeding stock come up here and starting to stabilize. In 2014, we had both cow-calf guys and feeders making money.” Looking ahead, he said cow-calf producers may see three to five profitable years, but feedlot buyers must be able to afford feeding the calves. Otherwise, Canada Page 10

may continue exporting more than a million calves per year. Better marbling potential could help.

“Never, never, never forget that the dollars you work with come from one place, and that’s the consumers of our product.” ~ Larry Corah

Changes add marbling “Cattle prices have changed how we manage cattle,” Corah said, noting that in the past four years, feeder calves have seen a 129 percent price increase and fed cattle marked a 71 percent price increase. The feedlots’ response has been to feed cattle longer and maximize pounds, which in turns add marbling. There’s a significant increase in grading ability when an animal moves from 0.4 to 0.6 inches of back fat. Not surprisingly, the percent of carcasses that are discounted for yield grade follows. Leighton Kolk, Iron Springs, Alberta, is one of five cattlemen in the Allied Marketing Group (AMG), which collectively manages 11 feedlots in the Lethbridge area with a one-time combined capacity of 110,000 head. Kolk Farms LTD accounts for 12,000 of that capacity. Breaking down where the dollars come from helps paint a better picture of “value” for AMG, he said. Last year, the 26,564 Angus-type cattle marketed in the group earned an average of $20/head over base price. Of that, $16 was earned based on quality grade of AAA or higher. A little more than $8/head was earned for qualifying for branded beef programs like CAB, but about $4/head was lost on yield grade discounts, he said. Comparatively, the 2,075 head of calves that were lighter-hided – grey or tan and likely of continental influence – earned an average of $17/head over base. They earned an average of $8/head on quality grade premiums, $2.50 on other branded programs, and $7 on yield grade premiums. Genetic keys to carcass, yield Brothers David and Dyce Bolduc, Stavely, said that with today’s genetic selection tools, cattlemen who understand those values can have the best of both worlds. “This is the biggest challenge in the industry for Angus producers,” David Bolduc said. “We’re still trying to determine exactly where we need to be there to put those pounds on while we keep the quality grade up and make them leaner.” He shared carcass data from a set of virgin bulls that didn’t make the breeding program but certainly made the grade. The entire harvest set graded either AAA or Prime, with the exception of one that had sustained a leg injury before harvest and graded AA. In those high-marbling animals, only two were YG 3; the rest yielded in categories 1 or 2.

Herd Reference Edition 2015 *

Corah outlined the impact focused genetic management can have on improving quality grade while reining in yield problems. In a 2013 study in the southern U.S., Brahman-Continental crossbred cows were bred to local hybrid bulls while a similar test group was bred to Gardiner Angus bulls with proven marbling ability. The offspring show a huge gap: calves sired by the typical southern bulls graded a minute 25 percent Choice. Their contemporaries, sired by the Angus bulls, graded an average of 76 percent Choice. “This is where Canada has the potential to make the most progress,” he said. “You’re going to see amazing changes in the industry with this kind of knowledge.” International expectations As those genetic changes take place, more markets will keep opening to beef despite high prices and tight supplies. Between 2009 and 2014, red meat production and consumption decreased worldwide, while pork and poultry keep trending higher. “Pork’s cheap, chicken’s cheap, but hey… that’s pork and chicken. We’re selling beef. Traditionally, we’ve been concerned with that price spread, but I’m not,” Perillat said. Beef that differentiates itself carves out its own market among global beef eaters. “People expect quality with today’s prices. When we compete with pork or poultry, that’s a lower Choice/Select market competition. But when you get into Choice-plus and Prime, that’s a market in itself,” Corah said. For every opportunity, however, there is more for producers in every segment of the cattle business to juggle. “The cattle industry must produce big, high-value cattle to maximize revenue per unit,” Paterson said. Signals are still mixed on herd expansion. Perillat noted more than two-thirds of last year’s exported calves were heifers. “So we’ll see less heifers fed and slaughtered. But are we keeping back replacements or exporting them?” For now, the focus must remain on maximizing every pound on every plate to continue to add value to the beef production chain, the men agreed. “We’re on the cusp of a lot of really exciting things. Are we producing the highest quality beef ever? Yes, we are. But, we can also do a lot to improve on what we’re doing now,” Corah said. “Never, never, never forget that the dollars you work with come from one place, and that’s the consumers of our product.”

Mutually Relevant by Trish Henderson

John Stika Canadian Angus producers hear from president of Certified Angus Beef brand U.S.-based efforts to market the world’s most popular brand of fresh beef add value to Canadian Angus cattle, according to Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB) brand President John Stika. “Our ability to deliver high-quality, great-tasting beef impacts your business,” he told a group of Angus breeders gathered for the annual Canadian Angus Association Convention in Calgary this June. In turn, the ranchers’ ability to produce cattle with premium marbling impacts the brand, so the two are “mutually relevant.” Stika said ranchers own the brand, but it can be hard to focus on something so far removed from the ranch. “We get paid for cows that breed back, for live calves, and healthy, fast-growing animals, but the carcass is the most valuable thing we produce,” he said. “This is the only source of revenue for the beef industry, even though it’s the last thing we’re paid for. Consumers value great tasting beef, and our ultimate goal is to increase overall beef demand by pleasing consumers.” Some Angus producers rely on their phenotypic judging ability – the eye of the stockman – more than genetic trait predictors like expected progeny differences (EPDs), he noted. “But whether you’re focused on carcass EPDs or not, you need to realize the consumer is focused on taste, and that is what ultimately impacts our businesses,” Stika said. Research from Kansas State University proves demand for premium beef is growing. Despite adverse economic conditions and a shrinking North American cow herd, demand for CAB has increased 96.5% since 2009. During the same period, demand for USDA Choice (Canadian AAA equivalent) decreased by 2.3% (See Chart). Stika cited the strong price-to-value relationship represented by CAB as one reason for such phenomenal growth in demand. That’s all based Page 12

Tenderness Always Key Factor in Consumer Demand By Larry Corah, consultant for Certified Angus Beef LLC You know that for years the beef industry and meat scientists worked to improve tenderness, and they had some success, but beef demand declined because the importance of flavor was being overlooked. Now in addressing flavor, some brands have brought tenderness along. For other premium beef, consumers are still disappointed by occasional toughness. You know it cannot be ignored, but what else is there to know? Here are some things you likely DID NOT KNOW about tenderness:

There are traditional country steakhouses and hot new ones made popular by social media buzz, but whether it is word of mouth or dissenting online reviews, a common issue crops up. On my bucket list was eating at a quaint old hotel in the Flint Hills known for quality steaks. So I met an old friend, ordered a glass of Merlot and a USDA Prime but otherwise unbranded sirloin. When the steak arrived, flavor was outstanding, juiciness great—but it was so tough I did what I have never done before and sent it back to the kitchen. Afraid to retry their steaks I ordered shrimp. The moral of that story is that we have to keep all three of these palatability traits in mind: flavor, juiciness and tenderness. Clearly today we understand that the strong desire to eat beef is driven by its unique flavor. But for each consumer there is some threshold level of acceptable tenderness. Research shows women differ from men in that level, which explains why many of them prefer a tenderloin steak while men order a strip or rib steak. Elderly differ from kids in their choices, too.

Fact one. Even though eating characteristics like flavor and tenderness obviously interrelate, they are evaluated independently. Since marbling drives flavor, we have examined that interrelationship more closely. Once noted as accounting for only 8% to 10% of the tenderness variation, today some meat scientists suggest marbling may account for 20% to 30% of it. If that is the case, then as quality grade improves the level of tenderness should also improve and that is what recent research presented at this year’s Reciprocal Meats Conference has shown. Prime was the most tender, the Certified Angus Beef Ž brand ranked next, then low Choice followed by Select (Table 1). Fact two. Tenderness is a moderately heritable trait with estimates suggesting a heritability of .3 (range in research studies from .24 to .53), which creates a nice opportunity to use genetic selection. To really make progress, tenderness EPDs (expected progeny difference values) will need to be developed, and work is underway to accomplish that. Driving that progress is the fact that DNA markers for tenderness have been identified. This will hasten the development of genomically enhanced tenderness EPDs in many of the cattle breeds.

Fact three. One of the ways tenderness is improved, especially at the foodservice/restaurant level, is by aging the primal for 21-30 days before cutting the steaks. This process, where meat is held at refrigerated temperatures for a few days, allows proteolysis to greatly improve tenderness. The magnitude and speed of improvement is related to quality grades, as higher quality primals age considerably faster. For example, by day six 62.2% of the aging effect is accomplished in Premium Choice cuts while only 27.6% is accomplished for Select grade cuts and by day fourteen 94.7% of the benefit is achieved in Premium Choice steaks but only 65.8% in Select. Fact four. A key factor influencing tenderness is the cut and cooking/grilling degree of doneness. When steaks are cooked to medium-well or well-done levels, they are drier to the palate and leave the impression they are less tender. Cooking to medium or medium-rare levels will enhance juiciness and tenderness perception. Certain cuts, such as brisket or round cuts, should be slow cooked for an optimum eating experience. Brisket, for example, is a very popular menu choice that many enjoy, but only if slow cooked for at least 4 to more than 8 hours, depending on cooking method. Many inexperienced hands at the grill short-cook brisket with very undesirable results, so check out recipe reviews online or try a family favorite with full attention to time and temperature.

Key to Unlocking the Value of Data is in the Industry’s Hands By Deb Wilson willing to give BIXS another shot after a disappointing first attempt. And while they’re optimistic, they’re also realistic about our chances for success. So they’re

During the month of June 2015, I had the great privilege of formally interviewing nearly twenty industry leaders from all parts of the supply chain to discuss a critical topic—the issue of exchanging information. (A full summary of information is available at a link below). Those of you who know me know that this issue has been on my radar for years. This is why I agreed to join a startup technology company (BIXSCO) when most women at my stage of life (notice I didn’t say age, I said stage) would be finding ways to wind down. I believe that industry-wide data sharing is critically important. Despite my passion, I realize that not everyone shares my enthusiasm. Talk to the hand Deb, some might say. Instead, let me talk to a couple of other important localities. The first is your back pocket. The second is your chest pocket. But don’t take my word for it. Take it from the cross section of industry leaders I spent hours with on the phone. The first thing they will tell you, as they told me, is that information is power. It’s the key to understanding what you’re producing so you can do it better, faster, with a higher quality and get properly rewarded for the meat you’re able to produce. One insider told me that there could be up to twenty-five percent more profit if producers have access to data information flow at the cow/calf stage. It’s also the key to accessing the world’s high value markets like Asia and Europe— who are asking us to prove the history of care of our animals, which at the moment, we aren’t able to do. Countries that can, like Ireland and Australia, are going to gain a much bigger share of these markets while we fight amongst ourselves, thinking that the best way to make money is at someone else’s expense (their words, not mine). I was happy to hear them say that the industry has a lot of confidence in BIXSCO’s management and is

The first thing they will tell you, as they told me, is that information is power. It’s the key to understanding what you’re producing so you can do it better, faster, with a higher quality and get properly rewarded for the meat you’re able to produce. sceptical about whether BIXS can overcome the competitiveness, mistrust, and complacency that plague the industry and have delayed the evolution of data sharing. That’s why our job at BIXSCO is to help the industry imagine the value of an integrated supply chain, and to help everyone (from producers through to packers) find their own ways to unlock the value of information by buying and selling it to others. We’re here to help facilitate those relationships so that everyone can find value. When we do that, some believe that industry fragmentation will be a thing of the past. Others wonder if mandating data sharing is the only realistic solution. The answer is clearly in the industry’s own hands. Now that I’ve addressed your back pocket, let me talk to the chest pocket—specifically the left side pocket. Yes, I’m speaking to your heart now, and the pride that every one of us feels about being part of this industry. But again, don’t take my word for it. Listen to the industry leaders I interviewed. They’ll tell you that Canadian beef is recognized as the highest quality

Herd Reference Edition 2015 *

protein in the world, raised right by producers who care. They’ll tell you that you’re part of a great industry with a great story. They’ll also tell you that none of that matters because we can’t prove our promises. And that’s the other important thing that BIXS can do—reflect the pride of care that goes into raising, feeding, and packaging our beef. By helping to track those practices through the chain, we can strengthen and protect the whole industry while helping individual players extract value from their data. The last thing these industry leaders told us is that our job isn’t going to be easy. So our goal is to start with some small wins. As a sign of positive momentum, several breed associations are now prepared to bridge their databases with BIXS to allow their data to flow through the chain. This is an important first step, providing us with millions of new records. Secondly, the packers have agreed to re-engage with BIXS by inputting their most recent carcass data into the system. These are exciting new developments for sure, but we still have other hurdles to overcome. We’re working on technology and website improvements, and have developed a strong industry engagement plan that we’ll roll out later this fall. Over the next few months, we’ll keep building momentum by getting support from different parts of the chain—starting with the most interested and engaged parts of the industry that already buy into the importance of data sharing. Maybe you’re not interested in unlocking the value of the data that you already have. Perhaps you don’t want to get compensated by other parts of the chain for the value of your work or the pride you take. After all, improving marketing, management, and profitability isn’t for everyone. But if it’s for you, get on board! In fact, what are you waiting for? If everyone waits until someone else takes the first move we’ll never progress. If you haven’t already signed on to BIXS, please take a moment to sign up now—it’s as easy as three simple steps (link to site). And please encourage others to do the same. BIXSCO is helping to unlock the value of data. But you hold the key. If you don’t believe me, read the summary report … on Page 18.

BIXS Research Summary Research Summary - July 7, 2015 Background and Methodology BIXS is an information exchange system that allows various segments of the cattle industry to exchange data. The early version of BIXS was a disappointment. Under a new ownership structure, BIXS is working to overcome negative perceptions, re-establish confidence, and re-engage the industry in the program. In addition to one-on-one meetings and events, the new ownership has undertaken a research project with various industry partners through a series of nineteen individual phone interviews (30 to 60 minutes each). Respondents included a cross section of industry members including representatives from the breed associations, producer groups, individual producers, NGOs, packers, feedlot, genetics, and auction marts. The interviews were conducted by Joni Avram of Cause & Effect Marketing, a well-respected Calgary marketing agency, and facilitated by Deborah Wilson, Senior Vice-President of BIXSco Inc. Through this process, BIXS has sought to understand the industry’s concerns, needs and wants, and their level of confidence in BIXS moving forward. In order to be as open and transparent as possible, we are making public a summary of our findings. While the names of all participants have remained anonymous, we have asked for objections before publishing this document, and have received none. Executive Summary Industry fragmentation was identified as a major concern, and data sharing through the supply chain as necessary for competitiveness. As consumers and retailers demand verifiable information about their food, industry can’t afford to let other protein producers take the lead (which is already happening). At the moment, much of the data that has improved both the pork and poultry industries is being lost in the cattle industry. While the industry has confidence in BIXS’ new leadership, it’s on the fence about whether it can deliver on its promise of facilitating industry-wide data sharing—partly because the industry is competitive, mistrusting of one another, and comfortable with the status quo. While packers are seen as a “choke point,” some respondents were optimistic that they could be brought onside if there is a clear value proposition; others wondered if mandating data sharing was the only solution. Three main themes emerged from the research. First, that BIXS needs to prove the value proposition of data sharing—to clearly demonstrate how data will add value. Two, that the greater outcome of the program is a viable and sustainable industry able to access world markets, and respond to consumer demand for the story behind their beef. Three, that the pride producers (and others) feel in their work gets lost when they don’t have a sense of how their efforts contribute to the positive perception of their industry—this is a major emotional driver that is overlooked. Page 18

Meanwhile, there appears to be a certain urgency to make BIXS viable. BIXS needs some quick wins to show momentum and should focus on the top 10-15% of the industry who “get” it. BIXS’s positioning as a stock exchange resonates—because BIXS is a vehicle for people to connect, share, buy and sell information based on their own value proposition. Ultimately, BIXS needs a sales job, but the story is not about data. “This is not an IT challenge. It is all about people, their context and their view of the world.” Overview of Findings Fragmentation is a major concern - all respondents agreed that fragmentation and the need to share information through the value chain is a major challenge facing the industry. The identified issues related to privacy, competition, confidentiality, and a lack of trust that pervades the industry. CAPPI, Strawman, and Canadian Beef Improvement Network Reports have all said that data sharing needs to happen. Everyone is collecting data and there is no means to share it. Until we can share the data the industry will not evolve. “The Memorandum of Understanding in the beef industry is “I win, you lose.” The easiest way to make money is at someone else’s expense. Data is power. ●

Consumers and retailers are driving the bus. Consumers want to know where their food comes from and how it was raised. Producers are offended because they feel they’ve been operating sustainably for 200 years. They’re taken back by the consumer backlash and are questioning why they have to “prove” their sustainable practises. McDonald’s and A &W efforts are just the beginning of a wave. The consumer is forcing us to work collectively to address food safety and verification issues while still being profitable. The industry has fundamentally changed and most people don’t realize it. It is possible to create a BIXS verified program through the packers…? ●

At the moment, much of the value of the data is lost. In particular, no one is getting rewarded for economic indicators—marbling, tenderness, ribeye size, and other attributes. With data sharing, producers can enhance those characteristics. This data means more money for the feedlots because there’s more predictability in the cattle and more return on the carcass. At least half of respondents referenced this issue in relation to the pork industry and how carcass data has improved the quality of their product, and returns to producers. There could be up to 25% more profit if you have access to data information flow at the cow/calf stage. BIXS gives me a competitive advantage…I’m able to demand what the product is worth. There are lots of inefficiencies in the production system and huge value in information flow. Until we work collectively as an industry and stop fighting among the different sectors we’ll never capitalize on our potential. ●

Industry is happy with the new management of BIXS and believes it has promise, but has not realized its potential. BIXS was a major source of hope for the industry and a major source of disappointment. However, there is strong willingness to take a second look at BIXS now that there is new management. Respondents like the tech background of ViewTrak particularly their history in the auction markets. Deborah Wilson’s boots-on-the-ground experience creates an enormous level of trust and credibility. The new version of BIXS is more user-friendly, but there isn’t enough data in the system to make it work yet. Respondents liked that BIXS is independent and industry-driven, not an arm of government. CCA is perceived as quasi-governmental, so positioning BIXS as independent is better. As a sign of positive momentum, several breed associations are now prepared to bridge their databases with BIXS to allow their data to flow through the chain. The new team brings a different set of traits…. BIXS has the oxygen mask on and we’re waiting to see if it will survive. BIXS is one of the many important pieces related to information exchange that will help the industry survive. If we don’t make this work, chicken will blow away beef…. ● ●

Major concerns related to privacy, confidentiality, maintaining the competitive advantage that data provides, and the quality of data—not only in terms of its accuracy, but also how the data will be analysed by the end users. Better to have no data than bad data. ●

Packers and feedlots are seen as a chokepoint.Unless producers and breed associations believe they will get meaningful data back from up the chain, they don’t see the point in going through the effort of inputting their data. But if that data is accessible, then producers will participate and that chain of data can go right up to the consumer. Packers have a lot of control on the ultimate success of this whole program. Optimistically I think it’s possible, realistically I’m not so sure. It may have to ●


be mandated by government - we can’t keep bowing down to the packers and paying them for data. In Ireland, the packers took a while to come around. There’s no cost to putting the information in. There is a cost to getting a report out. Packers should put info in to get something out. The tag is paid for by the producer. Once the data gets to the plant, the data should still belong to the producer because he paid for the tag. BIXS’s positioning as a stock exchange resonates because it’s a vehicle for people buy and sell information based on their own value proposition. The opportunity is to figure out ways to market information that matters and help everyone succeed. ●

Despite the pressure to share data, producers remain unclear about the value proposition. Producers already feel over regulated and this is just one more thing to do, with questionable ROI. Plus, they already carry the brunt of the cost of traceability—they’re buying the tags and readers, and their tag dollars go toward operating CCIA. BIXS needs to focus on tangible benefits—like marketing, management and genetics improvements, profitability, and access to world markets. Carcass data is not the Holy Grail. Often it's the cumulative value of tiny pieces that give more value. These are hard to quantity—birth weights, fertility, food programs—this data all starts to add up. This is the cost of doing business in today’s world. Our high value markets ask us to prove where it came from, how it was treated and where it’s going-we can’t. Media are reporting that Canadian traceability is a joke compared to Australia’s. So, if someone has a better system they’ll get the business. ●

Pride is a driver. Several respondents spoke to the pride that gets lost because there is no way to verify individual contributions to the bigger ideals of the industry—which minimizes the individual’s sense of significance and the value of their work. However, one respondent said that if producers really had a sense of pride in their product then we’d have had true traceability years ago. While many agreed that pride is an emotional button, it has to be communicated in combination with economics. People are proud of what they do, but aren’t able to see the fruits of their labour except in terms of a paycheque. In Ireland, once producers got their data back, they get really excited about that information. We forget about how significant that is—they feel like they’re actually making a difference. There’s a lot of psychology behind that. Seeing how your animals perform all the way down the chain is significant—this is self-motivation and mastery and significance. The consumer perception is a source of hurt and they express it in anger because their pride is being hurt. When we can start to create these good stories, it makes producing animals feel good to the producer. Canadian beef is recognized as one of the highest quality proteins in the world raised right, by producers who care. We’re part of this great story. BIXS can illustrate and prove this point. ●

e industry is too comfortable to change. Some respondents felt the biggest hurdle to data sharing is the comfort level of industry leaders who don’t want to do anything to change the status quo even though it would be best for the long-term substantiality and profitability of the industry. Lots of old boys will fight against this because they don’t like the idea—they’re not large in numbers ●

but they’re powerful. Leadership is starting to shift because companies realize they have to meet the challenges of consumers and regulations. We’re also seeing a younger, more innovative group who can work around these old boys. BIXS needs a sales job. BIXS is the only platform that can facilitate relationships and information sharing among a fragmented industry. BIXS is a solid platform, and consensus through industry is that it should be enhanced and improved. Furthermore, no one argues with the need for BIXS to make money. But this is not a data issue. It’s about the industry cooperating. BIXS needs a sales job, but the story is not about data. This issue is not an IT challenge. It is all about people, their context and their view of the world. Quit talking and start showing. This is an uphill battle and a marketing challenge. Focus on the top 10 to 15 per cent of the industry who are early adopters and interested. ●

● ● ●

ere is a certain urgency to make BIXS viable. If BIXS can’t bring everyone to the table, who will take the lead? If the shift is slow, in five years, BIXS won’t be around. We won’t be around. Try and find the wins—and find small wins quick. ●

Other issuesidentified by respondents included access to markets, labour and succession planning, and access to capital. The ability to use data will draw more young people who have been drawn toward other industries. BIXS may be able to help alleviate the burden related to overregulation of the industry, for instance by allowing documentation of environmental farm plans and the Verified Beef Production Program.

Canadian Junior Angus Association by Chad Lorenz - President, CJAA It is the most exciting time of year for the CJAA as we gear up for Showdown and have juniors from all across the country meet in Olds, AB. According to our entries Showdown 2015 should be very successful and could be close to a record breaker for both cattle numbers and junior participants. This year we will continue with all of the typical Showdown events such as judging, fitting, showmanship, marketing, speaking, and sales talk and so on. In addition, we will host an ‘Agri-Nightmare’ challenge on the Thursday evening, this is only the second time for this event. The concept was brought back from the 2013 World Angus Forum in New Zealand by the competing youth teams, it was well received in Virden last year and made for a fun event for both the participants and the parents standing on the sidelines. Last year CJAA members completed tasks from fixing water hydrants, changing trailer tires to building gates. Stay tuned for highlights of the second annual ‘Agri-Nightmare’ to take place in Olds. A very beneficial relationship the CJAA has is with Certified Angus Beef; on the Friday evening of Showdown we always have a Cook-Off amongst teams of CJAA members and the center of each of those prepared meals, as well as the complimentary supper is a Certified Angus Beef steak.Thanks our many breeders and industry supporters for sponsoring and volunteering to help at the show.

It has been a great year within the perimeters of the Canadian Junior Angus Association and the beef industry itself. Although we are seeing some devastating events across our country in terms of drought-like conditions and very intense forest fires, we must be somewhat grateful for the strength of our beef industry despite the impact of these natural disasters. Our industry has been in a place over the past year now that is rather inviting for youth to be involved and for organizations like the CJAA that is quite rewarding. Our board will be meeting at Showdown and planning for the next years events and we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that GOAL, our leadership conference, will be held next February in Ottawa, Ontario. It is never too soon to make plans to attend, and remember there are several national and regional travel bursaries that you can apply for to get assistance to travel to GOAL. I would also like to introduce the new directors that have joined the CJAA board of directors, Meghan McGillivray from British Columbia, Brooke Bablitz from Alberta, Wade Olynyk from Saskatchewan, and Michaela Chalmers from Ontario. It will be a pleasure to work with all of these individuals. However it is the individuals that served previously that have helped make the CJAA as successful as it is and those most recent individuals that will be retiring include Allison Speller, Stacey Domolewski, Katie Olynyk and Michael Hargrave. Thanks and best of luck in the future to each of you! With that said it has also been a very gratifying opportunity and a great privilege to lead the CJAA as president over the past year, I have had the honor of working with a tremendous group of people and can assure you that the CJAA is in great hands.

British Columbia Angus Association

by Tom deWaal ~ President, BC Angus Association

As the summer is moving forward we are finding that we are contending with a mixed bag as far as moisture goes. In our area we have been blessed with rain, but not all part of our province have been as lucky. As we move into August our Gold Shows are coming up with the Bulkley Valley Exhibition in Smithers and in early September the IPE in Armstrong. Both of the shows are great and if you have a chance to come I am sure a person can have a great time and see some awesome cattle. Our BC Angus AGM will be held in Williams Lake at the end of September and it will coincide with

Alberta Angus Association

On behalf of the Alberta Angus Association I am pleased to bring you this message. What an interesting time we are experiencing in the industry. Coming off of a phenomenal fall that saw record prices experienced in our industry in both the feeder and replacement markets to a extremely positive upswing in value on breeding stock in the form of bulls marketed this spring. To the commercial producer reading this; thank you. Thank you for continuing to put your faith in our breed and in the breeders that continue to strive to produce you top end genetics that accelerate your program and add value to your calf crops. Thank you for supporting the breed and what it represents and the many merits that it offers to the genetic advancement of the Canadian Cattle herd.

Stay well, Tom deWaal

by Greg Pugh ~ President, Alberta Angus Association

I would like to congratulate and thank the National Association Board and Staff on the work they put into the Convention. It was a great networking experience with the opportunity to gather a lot of knowledge and insight of the direction the CAA is going. There is many exciting things that are taking place on the National level and we look forward to the future. Our AAA Board has had a successful spring with a few of our initiatives coming to fruition. Our t-shirt donation to every 4Her in Alberta that has exhibited a project calf in the 2014-15 4H year was very successful with a lot of positive reviews and comments from members. We feel this initiative gives the breed great exposure as we are represented at every 4H banquet across the province and we are able to interact directly with the folks that are using Angus genetics as well as the future of the industry in the youth that are using those genetics as projects. Congratulations on the finish of your project year and thank you for the continued support of the breed. Our summer as a board has seen our attendance at many different events. One being the Northern Alberta Angus Clubs Summer tour. We would like to thank the club for their great hospitality and would also like to Congratulate DCM Pohl Partnership of Wetaskwin on being our Commercial Breeders of the Year! The Southern Alberta Angus Associations tour is set to go the weekend of August 8th and is set to be a great event for further Angus fellowship.

the Pacific All Breeds Sale. Both events again should be very exciting. If you haven’t considered coming to BC, you should try and make a point to. BC breeders have some outstanding cattle to see some spectacular scenery. What a wonderful vacation . . . going to a world class vacation spot and seeing some great cattle! We welcome you all to put BC on your travel planner.

Our AGM will be held once again this year in Bashaw on August 11. This is a great event that allows the opportunity for further face to face contact with your board and for year in review presentations of our activities. If you can make it we look forward to hosting you for the meetings and for the banquet to celebrate the breeders involved in our association. This year is a special year as it is the 40th Annual Alberta Junior Angus Association Show and we are inducting in the Breed Builder category the Founding Committee of the show. Remarkable folks that had a great amount of foresight to organize a show that has affected so many of us in so many different ways. Further presentations will be to our Purebred Breeders of the Year the Glessman Family of Glesbar Cattle Co. This is an operation that is full of dedication and support of the breed and breeders from our organization. Congratulations to you all. The forecast for fall continues to look bright for the strength of the breed and the industry. If you have any questions of your board or if you have any ideas that we can implement to further support or accelerate our members please do not hesitate to contact any member of the board anytime. Greg Pugh


Saskatchewan Angus Association

The Saskatchewan Angus Association has been slightly less busy this spring than last was but we still have a few great projects coming up. We are working in conjunction with the Growing Forward program in order to sponsor individuals in a mentorship program. They will receive funding for travel assistance to different Canadian and Saskatchewan

events as well as learn from established breeders. The goal is to develop leadership skills and have people interested in serving on various industry association boards, as well as our own. We feel this will also assist young people in getting out and attending our important events therefore also helping to develop young breeders. We are hosting our Gold Show, which is also the National Show, in Lloydminster again this fall, in conjunction with their Stockade Round-up. The Gold show there last year was a huge success. We encourage everyone to take time to exhibit or just go to watch the show. Details are available on our web-site and entry information will be available early in the fall with an October 1st deadline. There is a great group of breeders there who are working extremely hard to put on a world class show. Our summer tour will be held in the Melville area this year on August 6 and 7. These tours are a great deal of fun, an awesome networking opportunity in

Ontario Angus Association

There is plenty of optimism in the Angus breed today for both commercial and seed stock breeders. Despite some easing of futures prices, the drop in the Canadian dollar has helped cattle prices remain strong

by Michael Howe ~ President, Saskatchewan Angus Association a laid-back atmosphere and I encourage everyone to take the time to attend. There is another great group of breeders putting it on and it would also be a good excuse to get away from home for a couple days! The Canadian Angus Convention and annual meetings were held in Calgary at our new Angus office the first week of June. It was very well attended with an excellent line up of events. The conference had some very interesting tours and speakers on the Friday. The annual meeting was well attended and I left with a sense that our Association is in a very good position for the upcoming 5 years. The Building The Legacy Sale for the Foundation was an incredible success and it was nice to be able to tour Angus Central and see the many interesting archival items on display. In closing I hope to have a chance to visit with everyone at the tour or gold show this fall. Mike Howe

by Graham McLean ~ President, Ontario Angus Association

through the summer and are expected to continue heading into the fall stocker sales. I would expect weaning weights to be up from other years based on lots of grass and hay this summer. Lower grain prices should stimulate more creep feeding which is a good return on investment this year. It is hard to believe that the west will be struggling for feed and pasture for the rest of the summer into fall. We had our summer Field day this year at Walkerbrae Farms, Guelph at the end of July which was well attended with over 80 people taking in the day of Judging, Junior showmanship and Jessie Hobb’s Bio Track presentation. The day ended with a delicious dinner and fellowship. With the dog days of August here now, so is the start of the fall fairs. There are 5 point shows scheduled

around the province again this year as well as the 2 gold shows, the Preview and Royal Winter Fair. It looks like there will be lots of entries in the shows. There are many production sales starting with the Autumn Classic in September through to the Futurity in December. If the bull sales in the spring are any indication of things to come the Angus sale should be very well attended with keen interest. With that I wish you all tremendous success at the sales and shows this fall. I hope to see you around the province.
