is year spring is much more appreciated by people in some areas of the country, as they have been dealing with winter conditions since October. Record amounts of snow have fallen in areas across the prairies. Recently hay prices have soared as feed yards are emptied with longer than a normal feeding period. e good news is that with all the snow fall, there will be moisture to grow good hay crops this season. Hats off to those affected and I hope you are rewarded with a great summer.

Bull sales this spring were strong. Angus remains the choice of breeds in the commercial sector. e appetite for high quality beef at the consumer level keeps the demand for genetics with strong carcass traits secure.

Spring Edition 2013 *

Looking forward, there many Angus events scheduled for the summer and into the fall. Plan to participate and attend these functions, visit with your fellow Angus breeders, it keeps the breed vibrant.

It is truly how amazing le p many peo re know whe is ies Manyberr

rion. Who has ever heard of Orion? One might be familiar with the star constellation called Orion but that is not where we are from. Our mailing address is Orion but many times when people ask where are you from, we answer Manyberries and the response is just the opposite. It is truly amazing how many people know where Manyberries is. Whether it is from an antelope hunting trip from years gone by or a road trip to the USA that passed through Manyberries. So if you are one of those who does not know where Manyberries is, it is the last town in the extreme south east corner of Alberta, 40 miles east is Saskatchewan, 40 miles south is Montana, this is where you find Stryker Cattle Co. Our home place is located on the east shore of Pakowki Lake. This is the place my forefathers homesteaded on in 1913, so now we can say we have been in the ranching business for 100 years. Actually on my wife’s side history goes back even further. Her great-great grandad, James Francis Sanderson, trailed the first herd of domestic cattle from Montana to Fort Walsh in 1877 and became a major player in the cattle industry in the later 1800’s in the Medicine Hat area. He was the first man to pitch his tent where the city of Medicine Hat is now. Who is Stryker Cattle Co? Well for the most part it is Gladys and me (Will). Our son Chad is part of the company but he also has a job. He manages Pinhorn Grazing, which is a community pasture that consists of 75,000 acres. It borders Montana on the south and the Milk River runs through the middle of it. Its only 25 miles away so on the big work days and as time permits we have help. Our daughter, Rebecca and her husband Blayne live and farm 45 miles away. They show up and just pitch in on whatever job needs done. Blayne is so generous with equipment that when I have a breakdown or if he sees some way to make work easier, he shows up with something. There are a couple of other things in our area that are of interest. One is the view, if you have ever travelled south of Medicine Hat or even south of Hwy. 3, all of a sudden you will see some mountains pop up out of nowhere. These are called the Sweet Grass Hills. Three little sets of mountains perched up on the Montana border. The other is the One Four Research Station which is 30 miles south of Manyberries. It is a government run cattle operation that works with the Lethbridge Research Station. There was one more attraction that could be the reason you might know where Manyberries is and, heaven forbid, it is the Manyberries bar. We have to talk about cattle. We never started off with Angus cattle, but my Mom and Dad did. When they got married, Mom said that all the cattle were black cattle in

the 1940’s and 1950’s. Somewhere in the 50’s my Dad and his brother bought out another brother’s registered horned Hereford herd and started in the purebred operation. They were one of the consignors to the first Medicine Hat Bull Sale in 1959, in 1960 they managed to bring home a first place ribbon. Somewhere along the way the registrations were dropped and they ran a commercial herd. In the late 70’s and early 80’s we tried crossbreeding our Herefords to some of the exotic breeds. After weighing the pros and cons we went back to the Hereford breed, and it wasn’t until the 90’s that we used crossbreeding again. This time we used Black Angus bulls and we soon saw the benefits of the Angus cross cows. How and why did we end up in the purebred business? Well to look at our genetics our roots go deep into raising cattle. We were at a point in our life that we should expand or do more on the existing operation to generate more income. Raising purebred seedstock was the answer. There was never any question of the breed we chose - Black Angus. Our purebred herd started in 1998. The first sale we went to was the Black Magic Sale in Calgary where we bought two bred heifers. One from Ebon Hill, Ebon Hill Erica 118G out of Wiwa Creek Stockman and one from Pahl Livestock, Pahl Miss Blackcap 56G out of Pahl Black Jack, both grandsires were TC Stockman, a sire that in later years had a lot of influence in our herd. Another sale that we really liked was Bernie Beiver’s Dispersal Sale. There we bought an elite dam, BB’s New Trend Jane 9B out of VDAR New Trend 315, a great cow. We also bought SCA Favorite 17E out of GT Maximum, another cow that was named right. If I look back into our early beginning I would say that New Trend 315 had the most influence on our cattle herd. From there our cow herd developed out of the A.I. tank. Gladys is the A.I. tech and she is the one that spends hours and hours going through the semen catalogs. Pfred and Explorer were used in the early years. Just flipping through some papers I found a list of A.I. sires we used in 2004. EXT, Neutron 377, New Design, Lead On, Black Power, Krugerrand 410, Advantage and Alberda Traveler 416. Through the years we became even more stringent on picking out herd sires, not just looking at good-looking pictures and a bunch of numbers. They had to have it all. Good picture, great numbers and the progeny that proved they were what they supposed to be. Showing of our cattle has been very limited. It seems that we were always short of time and help to do it

Much of this land takes 50 to 60 acres for one cow to graze


We enjoyed getting the cattle ready for the Hat Bull Sale - Se nior Champion Bu Medicine ll in 2009

Ready to work: Will, Megan, Gladys and Chad properly. Although we did enjoy getting the cattle ready for a show and sale, it always seemed like we were in an endurance run when it was over. We did participate in the Angus Forum, and we did show our bulls in the Medicine Hat Bull Sale where we were able to market some of our bulls. We also had some success at the Medicine Hat Pen Show with our pen of three heifers. The first year that we went we won 3rd place. The second year, 2nd place and the third year we won 1st place. That seemed like a good place to end. Now we market our bulls at a one-day sale held early March in Medicine Hat. We have partnered up with Brooklyn Cattle Co. who sell Red Angus bulls. The sale is called Sure Shot Bull Sale. What is important to Stryker Cattle Co.? Good quality functioning cows. What do I mean by that? Number 1, to have cattle that will thrive in all environments. That is why Black Angus was the breed of choice when we started in the purebred business. Back to Manyberries for a bit. Yes, Manyberries is in the middle of ranching country, mostly because it is not suited for anything else. Cattle have to graze many acres to find enough food. Much of this land takes 50 to 60 acres for one cow to graze. Some of our cows pasture is in the extreme corner of Alberta at Wildhorse, where it takes 100 acres to graze one cow. This also means that these cows have to travel well. Sometimes water is a mile or two away. It means these cows have to be trouble free. The nearest corrals could be five or ten miles away. That brings me to disposition. I think the Angus breed got off on a bad wrap. When we first started into purebreds we would market our bulls out of the yard. Comment after comment would be that these were sure quiet bulls, and some people were totally amazed that you would walk into the pen with the bulls. Disposition is very important to us but I feel that the biggest factor in disposition is the way you treat your animals. Welfare of our animals is very important here on the ranch and I hope all cattle producers take note because some day if we don’t we will be having someone else tell us how to handle our cattle. Kindness goes a long ways when working cattle. I don’t know if there is such a thing as a cow

whisperer, but Gladys could be one. Some days she can move a field of cattle all by herself, some days if the wind is right she can ride to the corner of the field and call the cows and they all come a running. What’s so cool is when you have a real dilemma and you can find a simple solution. We had some grass rented from a neighbor that had a very steep and narrow draw that ran Success in the Pen of Three Heifers Show. about a half mile long that came out A good place to end! at the Milk River. The cows never went down the draw all summer but on round-up day, sure enough a bunch of cows went down the draw. There was no way to ride ahead of them and ride over the edge to turn them around and to go in after them would definitely put them on the river bottom. Gladys suggested that she should call them. And she did just that. Our spectators were truly amazed when those cows turned around and came out of the draw. I guess Will & Gladys (seated cen she should be called a cow caller. tre) with the family. Time to do more with the Where is Stryker Cattle Co. grandkids. today? Well from our first year of six, we now run 220 purebred cows, and we will our female cattle next November 25, 2013 but breed about 60 purebred yearling heifers. We will we will retain our bulls to have two more sales. try to sell between 50 to 60 two year old bulls this There is a time to work hard and also a time to coming year. Our A.I. tank is loaded and ready let go and let someone else do some of it. Chad to go, filled with semen from Final Answer, and Megan are going to move into their house on Bennett Total, Net Worth, a couple of new bulls another part of the ranch, so for us, grandkids are Connealy Concensus, Hoover Dam and a host of that much closer. At the time I am writing this other bulls. We have changed our calving we have a new grandson, Hayden. Chad and program in the last couple of years. We calve Megan also have twin boys Eli and Wyatt, age 5. heifers and about half of the cows in February and When they come to Papa’s house it is a really bad early March. We calve commercial cows mid day if we don’t go out and do some work. They March to mid April, then the rest of the purebred have amazing work ethics that I hope will never herd from mid April to May. We try to be change. Two grandkids at Rebecca and Blayne’s, self-sufficient and grow our own grain and put Clay, 9 and Daina, 7 started playing hockey and up our own hay. We manage our own cows on we only made it to two games. It’s time to make pasture and do all of our own feeding and yes, a change! some days we get a little stretched. Oh, and about shifting gears: I thought the “O” Shifting gears, we feel it is time to make some on the end of my shifter stood for “No Gear”, but changes. This is why the decision to sell our I now know it means “Overdrive”! purebred cows was made. We will disperse all of Spring Edition 2013

Having Tasted Better Beef, Canadians Want More By Steve Suther, Director of Industry Information, Certified Angus Beef LLC

The demand is there. The price point has been set. Can cattlemen meet the requirements? That question framed opportunity for those attending the recent Canadian Feedlot Conference in Calgary, Alta., sponsored by Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) with support from Elanco Animal Health. CAB vice president Larry Corah said a varying supply of high-quality beef in Canada has created an extraordinary challenge and opportunity for those who will work to meet the established demand for well-marbled beef. AAA or better described just 20 percent of all A grade cattle in 1993, and that improved but slowly through the 1990s. Then it shot higher coming into this century, more than doubling. Last year, those higher grading products made up nearly 60 percent of the A-category beef in Canadian markets (see chart). The relatively quick move to produce AAA-capable cattle depressed the historic price difference between higher and lower quality cuts, Corah said, but part of the problem was not enough difference in eating experience.

Suddenly, restaurants that had previously featured AAA and some AA started focusing on upper AAA and Prime. Grocers seized the opportunity to catch up to their fine-dining counterparts. Major retailers started selling AAA, upper AAA and even Prime, whetting more Canadian appetites for a better beef-eating experience. “CAB sales in Canada are exploding,” Corah explained. In the four months from November through February, sales of the brand were up 2.2 million pounds, and the run is just getting started, he said, noting the company expects 42 to 43 million more pounds sold in Canada for the fiscal year that ends in September. While he said huge strides were being made in meeting those demands, there’s still more work to do. “That equals a need for an additional 175,000 cattle that meet those quality expectations in the country,” Corah said. To get there, about 5.5 percent of all Canadian feedlot cattle will need to qualify with that premium AAA level of marbling, compared to the 2.2 percent currently making its way into that market. Those demands have created an imbalance in the supply of high-quality products – the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand sold 37 million pounds into the Canadian markets in 2012, with only 17 million pounds of that produced within the country’s borders. At the same time, more high-quality beef began to leave those borders as beef prices across the board continue to rise. It was increasingly harder for restaurateurs and retailers to keep up with the standards consumers came to expect over the past five years.

“CAB sales in Canada are exploding”

Quantum Genetix & Cactus Feeders Join Forces

Quantum Genetix and Cactus Feeders, have joined forces to create an alliance to achieve a superior advancement in the cattle industry. The alliance, introduced February 8, 2013 at this year’s NCBA Conference in Tampa, Florida, is an integrated program facilitating quality information gathering between producers, Quantum, and Cactus, in order to improve herd development and ultimately drive increased producer profitability.

This key alliance facilitates Quantum’s Q-Link parentage testing aligned with the collection of individual animal and carcass data from a leading North American feedyard. This innovative program allows for clear identification of superior sires accomplished through data capture and analysis over several calving seasons. Following the Q-Link testing, producers will receive summaries of progeny performance attributes for each of their sires. This enhances the ability to

“As a result, restaurants and retailers are scrambling again,” Corah said. “It’s really hard to tell the consumer your beef will cost more and, oh, by the way, I’m selling you a lower quality product now, too.” He said merchandisers have worked to find their own solutions to the tight supply problem, focusing on high-end grinds and featuring end meats in order to allow beef to compete in the meat case against its protein counterparts. While three-year trend lines show beef prices increasing at roughly the same rate as pork prices, it remains more than $1 per pound higher in price. Chicken, on the other hand, has remained at a steady price well below its competitors. “Retailers are struggling with featuring beef at current prices, opting to feature more grinds and innovative cuts,” Corah said. “They also want to put a ‘local’ spin on beef, especially in western Canada.” Even more reason for Canadian cattlemen to focus management practices on home-grown cattle that achieve high-quality carcass results. “As a feedlot or cow-calf operator, you can impact that quality hugely—by focusing on consistent animal health and solid nutrition that boosts rate of gain and the development of internal marbling, starting with genetics that will fulfill those carcass-traits potential,” Corah said. It’s well worth their time, too. “Quality beef catches more dollars,” he said. “Today, it’s not unusual to see high-quality pens selling for $100 to $150 per head above base prices. “As an industry, we are fortunate that consumers like beef, but they expect a quality eating experience,” Corah said. “Our job is to continue meeting their expectations.”

evaluate bulls and heifers for keep, cull and sell decisions in order to make herd improvements. This unique alliance provides producers the tools to measure, improve, and compare animal performance. Herd improvements can be targeted and observed in fewer generations, resulting in more profitable herds and better quality beef.

Quantum was founded in 2003 by Leigh Marquess. Quantum Genetix Canada Inc. is a leader in applying genetic information and livestock management to the beef industry. QGCI’s core services include Leptin testing, a gene associated with growth characteristics, and Q-sort, a feedlot sorting system that incorporates genetic information with individual live measures. The Company has operated within Innovation Place, a research park next to the University of Saskatchewan, since its inception, and in 2011 expanded to a larger location within the park to better accommodate testing processes and a growing business. For further information contact dna@quantumgenetix.com. Cactus Feeders, headquartered in Amarillo, Texas, has nine large-scale cattle feedyards across the Texas High Plains & southwest Kansas. Since its founding in 1975, Cactus Feeders has grown into a $750 million company that employs about 500 people. Cactus Feeders is the world's largest privately owned cattle feeding operation. Employees own 100 percent of Cactus Feeders through their Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Employee ownership means that each employee has a personal stake in the performance of the cattle and the success of Cactus Feeders. For their cattle feeding customers, this translates into a level of care and feeding for their cattle that only ownership can provide. Page 10

#hen e Black Bulls Came to 'meric 's printed in the ay 1928 Issue o “Country :entlemanâ€?

Most doctors’ waiting rooms boast a collection of not-so-new publications. Dr. Lyle Hare, a chiropractor at Crossfield, AB takes the concept of ‘outdated’ a step further and often adds treasures he finds at yard sales into his magazine pile. One day while waiting my turn in his office I came upon the May 1928 issue of “Country Gentleman� complete with label addressed to a Mrs. J. Morrill of Blackie, AB (that glue really had staying power). This particular issue included a feature story written by renowned agricultural historian Alvin H. Sanders which claimed, “This is the first time that the facts have all been made public� concerning the arrival of the original “Scotch beasties� in America. Some breeders may already be familiar with his account, but the growth of the Angus breed includes many who have ne’er seen it before. While this story deals with the first importation of “humlies� to the US in 1873, according to records Angus arrived Canada in 1860 (see sidebar at end). Whatever the facts and dates, it took people with foresight - and in this case, a desire to be titled - to pioneer the way for the tremendous success the Angus breed enjoys in North America today. The following reads exactly as the feature appeared in 1928, word for word. The writing style 85 years ago was perhaps more flowery than today and exclamation marks abound ! But the adventure, heartache and history are as interesting as ever.



very ailure is a step  success  William Whewe

{1794-1866}



By Alvin H. Sanders, Editor Emeritus, (he New Breeders’ :azette They were selling the grand champion load of fat steers at the Chicago International Livestock Exposition. I stood by the side of Tom Cross, Armour's head buyer, with an order from the Pennsylvania Railroad Company to buy that load of cattle, to be served as Christmas beef upon their dining cars; the only limit as to price being the sky itself. So, naturally, Tom just kept on nodding to the auctioneer till we got them at the highest figure ever paid in any market in the world for beef cattle, fifty-seven dollars per hundredweight. They were Aberdeen-Angus yearlings; and there's a real story in the coming of these Scotch "beasties" to America. This is the first time that the facts have all been made public. The Union Pacific Railroad is just completing the construction of a new depot at the little town of Victoria in Central Western Kansas. The old stone building that so long served as railway station, grocery store, hotel and post office, with living accommodations on the second floor, is to be dismantled. With its disappearance passes the chief remaining monument of an ambitious attempt of the long ago to found a great colony which, while ending in failure so far as the original promoter was concerned, nevertheless marks a milestone in American agricultural progress. Once upon a time a young Scotchman, with the traditional "saxpence" in his pocket, arrived in London to find out what the world had in store for him. The son of a Banffshire crofter, he had served an apprenticeship in the North to a silk mercer, and this gained him employment with a firm engaged in that line in the metropolis. Being a Scot, he never spent quite as much as he earned, no matter how small the wage, and it was not many years before he found himself able to form a copartnership with a fellow worker, under the name and style of Grant & Gask. Business was not brisk at first, but one morning the Times announced that the Prince Consort - husband of Her Majesty, the beloved Queen Victoria - was ill. Next day he was worse, and at length a bulletin revealed more or less anxiety as to the royal patient.

(he Corner in Crape Our canny Scot, George Grant, cloth merchant, knew perfectly well what would happen if the Prince should die. He could see in advance a great city draped in black - a sorrowing nation with a badge of mourning on each sleeve! Within twenty-four hours the firm of Grant & Gask owned every available yard of crape in the London market! Fate favored the speculation. The royal patient passed away, and the trick was turned. A "killing" that was long the talk of the British dry-goods trade was duly registered. The crape was sold at Grant's own price, and he was on his way to wealth. A subsequent clever deal in silks netted another small fortune; so it came to pass that George Grant then retired from trade to carry out a long-cherished ambition to see America. It was in 1871 that he found himself amidst scenes that appealed irresistibly - it so turned out - to his imagination. Returning from the Pacific Coast, via the old Kansas Pacific Railroad, he was profoundly impressed with the Western plains. Page 14

Above: George Macdonald, herdsman of the Angus bulls on the Alabama Left: “Lord� George Grant, founder of the ambitious Victoria Colony in Kansas


While passing through the Smoky Hill River country he dreamed the dream that afterward came true. Buffalo and antelope were grazing in peace upon the sweet grama grass! A virgin realm awaited the touch of the plow, the hoofs of herds and flocks, to blossom into plenty! Returning to his native land, he opened up negotiations which resulted in his purchase of a vast tract of railway and government land, all at a nominal price, some of it as low as eighty cents an acre! In Banff, Aberdeen and Morayshire he soon found the recruits for a great Victoria Colony; and when, on April 1, 1873, the steamship Alabama cleared from Glasgow for New Orleans she had aboard not only the Scotchmen, their wives, sisters, sweethearts, bairns and the usual impedimenta of emigrants bound for their El Dorado, but something which up to that date had never before been placed aboard an oceangoing ship bound for New World shores. It is here we find the genesis of a future great American industry. Such is the far background in the picture of the sensational trade event with which this story began. Four bulls, glossy black and "dodded," formed a part of the Alabama's colonial cargo. From whose herd or herds they were derived, we" dinna ken." All we know is that they were destined for revolutionary honors in the western hemisphere. Alongside these hornless beasts was a bull of the Shorthorn breed which Grant had bought from the royal herd at Windsor; and on the way down Channel a stop was made at Cardiff, where a band of sheep was added to the cattle, horses and dogs already aboard in charge of George Macdonald.

Four bulls, gloss black dodded, formed a part of Ee Alabama’s colonial cargo

Seasick Victims of a Storm The modern ark now put to sea, running straightaway into rough weather. To ease the strain the skipper turned the Alabama off her course for three days and nights, losing time, of course, but contributing to the comfort of both man and beast. During the storm nearly all hands were sick, the herdsman among the rest. One day a deck hand came to him, saying "I think the smallest black bull is sick too." The Scot's rejoinder was: "Well, if he's as sick as I am, I feel blasted sorry for him!" The chances are that the poor brute was only grieving for his missing master. Pigs are notoriously bad sailors, but cattle go a-sea with apparently little disturbance of their various stomachs. Resuming the voyage, in due course the Gulf of Mexico was safely entered and traversed, but more trouble awaited. The Alabama - a new ship on her maiden voyage - drew eighteen feet of water, and there were but sixteen feet in the Mississippi channel. Two barges, two white bosses and some fifty negroes were sent down from New Orleans to help her off. It was just a question of lightening ballast, so at length the big vessel was freed. It was spring in Dixie's Land as the expedition docked at the great levee of New Orleans. Blue skies and balmy airs took the place of North Atlantic gales. Not only the birds but the negroes on the dock sang as they went their diverse ways. Silent and speechless, however, were the black brethren as those four Aberdeen-Angus bulls - bovine "colored folk" - came into view. All of the livestock had to be taken off with block and tackle. While the bulls did not care specially for this rather trying operation, no serious mishap occurred save in the case of one of the English rams. His neck was somehow broken and his body consigned to the tender mercies of the river gods. Country Gentleman (1831-1955) was an American agricultural magazine founded in 1831 in Rochester, NY by Luther Tucker and was purchased by Curtis Publishing Company in 1911. Curtis redirected the magazine to address the business side of farming, which was largely ignored by the agricultural magazines of the time. In 1955, Country Gentleman was the second most popular agricultural magazine in the US, with a circulation of 2,870,380. That year it was purchased by, and merged into, Farm Journal, an agricultural magazine with a slightly larger circulation.

 The first of their kind to set hoof upon United States soil, the black humlie cattle were indeed a revelation. The Queen's bull was interesting enough, but to native Americans the blacks were real freaks of Nature! At last all were safely on the deck of a packet bound upriver. Around the great bends of the lower Mississippi, past canebrakes and cotton fields, 'midst dark forests, with distant vistas of green hills, day after day the turbid northern flood was breasted. Each night the plaintive strains of Suwanee River and Old Black Joe fell upon the ears of the wandering Scots; replied to, on behalf of the colonists, by Annie Laurie and Auld Lang Syne. At last St. Louis, and terra firma! American railway equipment looks fearfully big and clumsy to Europeans. But our box cars were rather more comfortable for those four black bulls than their own "vans" would have been. It is now the middle of May! Men and mules are busy in the corn lands. Wheat fields give color to a strange new rural panorama. In the feed yards cattle, but no black-skins! Aye! Not yet. But wait! On May 18, 1873, the Victorian colonists, horses, dogs, sheep, cattle and all, debarked at their Midwestern Ellis County, Kansas, destination. The world was theirs! A world of grass, with far, far distant horizons! Womenfolk wept a bit. It "wasna' Scotland," but the men for the most part felt at once the bigness of it all, and one by one the spirit of the boundless West - which once felt is never quite forgotten - caught them in its grip. Along the Smoky Hill and its tributaries the settlers took their stand. Shacks and dugouts served at first for shelter. The situation was not altogether rosy. Alvin Howard Sanders (1860-1948) was the son of James Harvey Sanders, a renowned livestock author and founder of the leading livestock journal, The Breeder's Gazette. By 1892, Alvin had become editor and owner. He wrote many livestock books which included such works as A History of Aberdeen-Angus Cattle (1928), Red White and Roan (1936), Short-Horn Cattle (1900), and The Story of the Herefords (1914), as well as the collaborative A History of the Percheron Horse (1917). {wikipedia.com; Cornell University Library} Spring Edition 2013

At Ee End of Ee Trail One Glasgow family, consisting of the parents and five grown sons and daughters, contracted fever coming up the Mississippi. Accustomed at home to all the comforts of life, they were here installed in hastily and crudely prepared quarters; no screens to keep out the swarms of mosquitoes, flies and other insects; no ice to cool parched lips or brows; no food appealing to a fever sufferer. Only the father and one son survived. Five graves on the wind-swept plains marked the end of the trail for the other members of the family. Such was the Western welcome to the Victorian Scots.

The first two years were devoted to building homes, breaking the sod and attending to the herds and flocks. During short spells of relaxation they hunted buffalo, antelope and prairie chickens in the fall months. Buffalo passed through Victoria to their northern feeding grounds as late as 1875. Disaster, however, befell Victoria the very first year. The prairie took fire from Hays to Victoria along the railroad track, and the flames swept south as far as the Smoky Hill River. Grant was forced to transport his entire livestock to the Kaw Valley near Junction City, where they wintered. The settlers did not suffer, not having bought much stock up to that time, and a few stacks of fire-guarded prairie hay supplied their needs. But this was not all. The following year a plague of grasshoppers appeared and destroyed the green growing crops, when the cattle were sent north to Hill P. Wilson's ranch on Eagle Creek, a branch of Paradise Creek. This was an ideal refuge for a fair-sized bunch of cattle during winter blizzards. The creek banks were densely wooded, meadows on each side, sheltering hills beyond and ample pasture. No wonder Herder Duncan and his young wife felt happy and contented in their lonely cabin on the distant Eagle. The blooded stock was kept meanwhile at Victoria, supplied with hay and grain from the Kaw Valley.

Which Came First? The next year saw Grant indulging in a great sheep-raising enterprise, in which he was badly advised by friends in Colorado and elsewhere. What was partially successful in Colorado proved a failure on Victoria's unsheltered ranges. Even Clarkson's sheep ranch on the Saline River and Brook's large ranch on Wolf Creek, only about fifteen to twenty miles from Victoria, had to quit; the latter having lost a whole crop of lambs one year. Naturalists all over the world will be interested in what now happened in connection with attempted range cattle operations. Scientific men will here find confirmation, all but irrefutable, of an hypothesis that has been advanced by certain taurine paleontologists in comparatively recent years. Was the primordial neolithic herd horned or hornless? Which came first, the horned or the no-horned? It has been commonly assumed that horns were a part of the primary bovine equipment. George Grant's black bulls seem to have quite upset that popular belief. Deciding to engage in the range cattle business, the importer of these humlie bulls bought a considerable herd of cows of the old-fashioned Texas type-the real old Spanish Longhorns.

Crossing Ee Longhorns and Ee Polls Back of the Texans were countless herds which for unnumbered generations had defiantly carried their wide-branching weapons of defense. On the other side, the newly arrived North-of-Scotland polls! What sort of horns, if any, would be borne by the progeny of these two diametric extremes? It is not likely that George Grant was particularly worried as


to that. He only knew, like all Britishers emigrating to foreign lands, that he wanted round about those things that he had been accustomed to at home. His own folk had hornless black cattle on their farms. Men who had attained his station in life put on their dinner coats at night, whether in London or on a Kansas cattle range. So the black bulls and the formal dress and the decanter and the pipe and Robert Burns and The Scotsman went with him out upon the American plains as a matter of course. In taking out the bulls he had no thought whatever of planning an experiment that was to stir zoologists. He did not know, neither did he care, whether primordial, prehistoric cattle were horned or hornless. He knew that black polled cattle were good cattle where he came from. He knew that the buffalo had grazed and thrived upon those far Western ranges since long before the time they were first seen by Coronado. And so the Victorian herd was founded. History does not record whether the owner was amazed or not at the outcome of this cross between the horns and nohorns. It is more than probable that with traditional British assurance he considered that it all turned out as was foreordained. Be that as it may, the fact has to be recorded that, strange as it may seem with those big-horned mothers constituting the foundation herd, an overwhelming percentage of the progeny of the union of the horns and no-horns was not only black in color but entirely free from horns as well! Upon this point the evidence of James McDonald, an Edinburgh newspaperman and distinguished agricultural writer of his time, who toured the States in 1877 for The Scotsman, is conclusive and dependable. He says: "The descendants of the polled bulls are easily recognized. They are nearly all black, and few have 'scurs' or horns." As there were large numbers of these crossbreeds produced between 1874 and 1878, the demonstration of the superior antiquity of the hornless beast is most impressive. It has been scientifically demonstrated by elaborate experimentation in other, but comparable, lines that when two distinct varieties are subjected to such a test the more ancient of the two types involved is certain to prevail.

A Scotchman’s Dream of Empire The truth seems to be that while the polled Aberdeen-Angus are themselves a comparatively modern development - probably descended in their nearer ancestry from the horned Bos urns - that very fact coupled with the record for dominance disclosed by this Victorian record strengthens positively the probable correctness of the theory that originally all cattle were hornless; otherwise the polled characteristic would not, in this now celebrated case, have so completely overcome the southern Longhorn! It is apparently a well-marked instance of reversion, through horns on both sides, to the common primordial formation. Thus did the Scotchman's dream of empire - with its hoped-for baronetcy from the Crown - contribute unwittingly at last to the world's knowledge touching one of the most mooted points in the science of heredity. Commercially, too, it had vast consequences. George Grant was vain enough actively to seek a title from the Queen. That ambition was behind his naming of the colony. It explains his going to Windsor to buy a bull from Her Majesty's herd to send out to his American principality. He used to have house guests well supplied with "Scotch and potash water," and at these parties he would be hailed and toasted as "Lord Grant!"

Disappointment :rant’s Reward He loved to see his name in the newspapers, and those who toadied to him would send marked copies of references to him addressed, "Lord George Grant!" There were great goings-on at times at headquarters. It must be remembered that while some of the colonists were of a substantial, hardworking sort, there was a goodly number of lads in their twenties younger sons of more or less well-to-do families on adventure bent. They did their best to enjoy themselves. They built a race track and brought in some good horses.

Meantime, that silk and crape money was being rapidly dissipated. Moreover, the lands were not settling up as the founder had expected. All were not amenable to his paternalistic plans, and so gradually his cash and his picture of himself as the titled laird faded into thin air. Broken in health and fortune, "Sir George" died in the midst of the scenes that had not yielded him the personal satisfactions he had so fondly anticipated. He passed on in 1878 and sleeps near the old Presbyterian kirk that he helped erect. The dispersion of the cattle followed shortly after the founder's death, and it was the results obtained with these polled half-blooded cattle in feedlots in Kansas City territory that a few years later led to the extensive introduction of black polled cattle into the Middle West.



The First Angus in America When George Grant transported four Angus bulls from Scotland to the middle of the Kansas Prairie in 1873, they were part of the Scotsman's dream to found a colony of wealthy, stock-raising Britishers. Grant died five years later, and many of the settlers at his Victoria, Kansas, colony later returned to their homeland. However, these four Angus bulls, probably from the herd of George Brown of Westertown, Fochabers, Scotland, made a lasting impression on the U.S. cattle industry. When two of the George Grant bulls were exhibited in the fall of 1873 at the Kansas City (Missouri) Livestock Exposition, some considered them "freaks" because of their polled (naturally hornless) heads and solid black color (Shorthorns were then the dominant breed.) Grant, a forward thinker, crossed the bulls with native Texas longhorn cows, producing a large number of hornless black calves that survived well on the winter range. The Angus crosses wintered better and weighed more the next spring, the first demonstration of the breed's value in their new homeland. The American Aberdeen-Angus Breeders' Association was founded in Chicago, Illinois, on November 21, 1883, with 60 members. Today the AAA operates the largest beef breed registry in the world, with more than 25,000 members. {angus.org}



The First Angus in Canada Angus animals arrived in Montreal, Quebec by 1860 and some landed in Victoria, BC in 1874. The first recorded importation was in 1859 by Sir George Simpson, Governor of the Hudson Bay Company. No progeny was recorded, therefore credit for the first productive importation was given to Professor Wm. Brown at the Ontario Experimental Farm in Guelph, ON. "The first of the breed born in North America" is commemorated on a bronze plaque in Guelph recognizing the birth of Eye Bright 2nd on January 12, 1877 sired by the bull Gladiolus. In 1882 there were 323 Angus imported from Scotland. The Hon. M.H. Cochrane had his headquarters in Montreal and a ranch in Alberta. He purchased 10 animals from Scotland in 1881 for the tremendous sum of $9,975. These were the days when top bulls were selling for $300. The town of Cochrane, just west of Calgary, is named after this early booster of Aberdeen Angus cattle. The "Canadian Aberdeen Angus Breeders Association" was incorporated May 4, 1906 with the first Annual Meeting held in Winnipeg, MB in July 1906. The CAA today represents 3,000 members, registering both Black and Red Angus. {cdnangus.ca}

Nerve Block and Meloxicam Injection to Stop Castration Pain Research suggests that beef calves of all ages experience stress when they are handled or when management practices are applied to them which might cause pain, writes Barry Potter, Agriculture Development Advisor, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food. The recently released Canadian Code of Practice for Beef Cattle contains strong recommendations for producers to use pain blocks, such as anaesthesia, in dehorning animals over 4 months of age or castrating animals over 9 months of age. These ages represent a compromise between what is achievable on farm versus the amount of pain an animal suffers. Can we do something to reduce pain in our animals? Is it worth it from a management perspective? Is it the right thing to do? Let's consider the impact of alleviating pain at castration time. Some people say the impact of castration is so quick that the animal gets over it without any loss of weight. However, calves given a local anaesthetic prior to castration have been shown to weight 35 lbs. more at the end of the trial than calves castrated without any pain alleviation. Often times these production impacts are hard to measure. But new methods of measuring the neurological impact on calves under stress from dehorning or castration show that we can reduce the pain animals feel from these invasive procedures. Recent research at Iowa State examined the impact of aspirin on reduction of cortisol, a measure of stress in calves. Calves were split into groups, either uncastrated, untreated and castrated, or treated and castrated. In the trial, calves which did not receive aspirin ended up having higher levels of cortisol.

At a recent Dairy Animal Welfare conference at Guelph, Hans Coetzee,Iowa State University, discussed the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) used to reduce pain in dehorning calves. He presented research to indicate the impact of the use of these drugs. Heinrich et al. (2009) demonstrated that 0.5 mg/ kg meloxicam intramuscular (IM) combined with a corneal nerve block reduced serum cortisol response for 6 hours in 6-12 wk. old calves, compared with calves receiving only local anesthesia prior to cautery dehorning. Furthermore, calves receiving meloxicam had lower heart rates and respiratory rates than placebo treated control calves over 24 hours post-dehorning. Stewart et al. (2009) found that meloxicam administered intravenously (IV) at 0.5 mg/kg mitigated the onset of pain responses associated with hot-iron dehorning in 5 week old calves compared with administration of a corneal nerve block alone, as measured by heart rate variability and eye temperature. These findings indicate that administration of meloxicam at 0.5 mg/kg IV or IM decreases physiological responses that may be linked to pain and distress associated with cautery dehorning in preweaning calves. Meloxicam is an injectable product (Metacam) approvedfor use in calves in Canada. Its labeldirections are quite specific: "As an aid in improving appetite and weight gains when administered at the onset of diarrhoea, in combination with oral rehydration therapy, in calves over one week of age.

Spring Edition 2013 *

For relief of pain following de-budding of horn buds in calves less than 3 months of age." So if we can dehorn prior to 3 months of age, Metacam can be useful in reducing pain in calves. Pain block to reduce immediate pain from dehorning is possible. Work with your veterinarian to learn how to properly block the nerves going to the area around the horn. There is a valley or soft spot on the side of the calf's head between the eyes and the horn. By slowly inserting a needle here and fanning the pain block medication into this area, nerve pain can be blocked to the horn area. Calves can be dehorned with much less stress than without any pain block. Regardless of their age, calves will benefit from the use of pain medication for invasive procedures. Using a pain block, and a pain medication can help lower cortisol or stress levels in calves. The benefits are many fold for the producer: calves are easier to handle when they are not feeling pain, will have reduced sickness and a shorter recovery time afterwards, and increased weight gain as compared to unmedicated animals. The Code of Practice recommends using them for dehorning and castrating when animals are a certain age. The research shows a benefit to the animal at any age. Work with your veterinarian to develop a program that works for you and your animals. -The Beef Site

Canadian Junior Angus Association

The Canadian Junior Angus Association was very excited to once again put on our annual GOAL conference. We had it this past February in Edmonton at the Fantasyland Hotel. We had a schedule of events that all the juniors in attendance enjoyed! Our keynote speaker for Saturday night was Dr. John Fast speaking about “Succeeding at Succession: The Ultimate Farm Management Challenge�. Other exciting speakers we had this year include Heather Hargrave speaking to us about beef advocacy, Cassie Dorran educating us about professionalism and marketing and Stephen Scott spoke about beef markets around the world. We also had many fun activities that we did throughout the weekend

including an Amazing Race Challenge and the opportunity to go to either the water park, games land, or take some time to shop around the mall. We said goodbye to three retiring directors at GOAL. Kevin Bolduc, Rebecca Gilby, and myself will be retiring off the board this year and have extremely capable fellow juniors taking over our positions. Thank-you for your time and commitment to the board. I can say as a retiring director that we are all very thankful for this experience. As many know the Canadian Angus Association is sending three teams to New Zealand this fall to take part in the Junior Competition of the World Angus Forum. From nineteen applicants there were twelve chosen to make up the teams, each consisting of four juniors. The lucky juniors who were selected to attend were announced at GOAL and are as follows: Austen Anderson, Matthew Bates, Kaitlyn Bolduc, Ty Dietrich, Stacey Domolewski, Erika Easton, Sean Enright, Michael Hargrave, Patrick Holland, Jared Hunter, Chad Lorenz and Melissa McRae. Needless to say the selections committee had a big job and were able to select a great group of juniors who will do an amazing job representing Canada in October. The CJAA is once again offering three scholarships to deserving juniors. This year we are changing to a tiered funding method which has the first place recipient

receiving $2,000, second place receiving $1,500 and third receiving $1,000. To apply you must fill out the application form and write an essay. Applications are due June 15th. Check out the Junior Connections newsletter or the CAA web-site for application forms. Showdown is going to be in Armstrong BC this July 25th-27th. This year we have a new competition that we are introducing. This will be a farm sign competition. Contestants will create handmade farm signs to be displayed with their cattle, or in another location in the barn for participants that did not bring cattle. Farm signs can be created from any medium except the use of computers and professional printers. There is no size limitation for this competition. Judging will take place during the herdsman competition. The content of the sign can include an original farm name/logo or an existing farm name/logo. We are once again offering all of the other competitions for juniors to take part in. The deadline for entries if June 1 and June 20 for late entries. See this issue of Angus World for the entry form, or the web-site. I am looking forward to Showdown and am excited to see everyone there! Erin Toner President , Canadian Junior Angus Association

Alberta Angus Association Message

Well, hasn’t this been quite the spring or shall we say extended winter! With lots of moisture throughout the province, though be it in the form of snow, it has pushed back seeding – but pastures & hay land should be lush!

Alberta had a very successful bull sale season. It is fantastic to see that Angus are still in high demand. The Alberta directors are working hard after their Strategic Planning meetings in May. They are preparing for the 40th Anniversary of Farmfair this fall and hosting the National Angus show. If interest stays high the AAA will be funding a liner for the Alberta Junior cattle to go to Showdown in Armstrong this summer. Join us August 13 in Bashaw – in the morning will be the 38th Annual Alberta Junior Angus Show then in the afternoon is our AAA AGM and round out the evening with our Hall of Fame Awards Gala. It will be a great event! The Alberta Junior Board of Directors has another busy summer ahead of them starting with - hosting an Angus Show at Summer Synergy in Olds July 8 – 12. Then a group is heading out to Armstrong to

represent Alberta at Showdown and they will host their 38 Annual Provincial Show in Bashaw August 11 – 13. To round out the summer will be the Canadian Junior All Breeds Show August 14 – 17 where the juniors will crown their “Triple Crown Champion”. This is an award where animals entered in ALL 3 Alberta summer shows (Synergy, AJAA Show & All Breeds) accumulate points and the highest point animal wins. This encourages juniors to participate in all the opportunities during the summer in Alberta. Feel free to contact any of the AAA directors with your thoughts or ideas for 2013. Sincerely, Carol High President - Alberta Angus Association

Hello from the Saskatchewan Angus Association! I am sure everyone will have to agree they are looking forward to the end of this lengthy winter season. Anyone hear a scientist talking about global warming these days?? As for Saskatchewan Angus business our Summer Gold & Junior show will be held in Prince Albert this

summer in conjunction with their summer fair and exhibition, we hope to continue on with our pen show if at all possible. Watch our web-site and provincial newsletter for entries and details later this spring. We have two worthy recipients of our major annual awards. Taylor Enterprises of Wawota, SK, a family run 600 head cow/calf operation using strictly Angus genetics was awarded the Commercial Producer of the year for 2012 and Blairs.Ag of Lanigan, SK was awarded the Purebred Breeder of the year for 2013. Congratulations goes out to both operations for their success! We would also like to congratulate Ron & Marilyn Mountenay of Ivanhoe Angus on receiving the honour scroll presented by the Saskatchewan Livestock Association in January at the Beef Industry Conference. Thanks goes out to our retiring directors Adam Knutson and Glen Briere for their work on the SAA board. We also welcome Kelly Feige of Parkside, SK and Kristine Sauter of Wawota, SK as new directors.

I will be attending the Canadian Angus Convention in June in Guelph, Ontario, along with our General Manager, Belinda Wagner. If there is anything you would like brought forward, or discussed with the other provincial representatives at our Can-Prov meetings, please let us know. Initial planning has also started for the 2014 Canadian Angus Association Convention and AGM which will be held in our province, so look forward and consider this to be one of the first of many invites to join us in Moose Jaw in June of 2014 for a great Angus event. Well that is a few of the highlights since my last report so I will wrap it up till the next one, but please remember if you have any questions or concerns please call myself, any board member or our General Manager Belinda Wagner and we will try to help you find an answer!

Well it appears that spring has finally arrived after being long overdue. With the extended cold it has been a challenging 2013 calving season.

The 4H shows will soon be upon us so please get out and support the youth in the beef business in Manitoba.

Manitoba Angus Association Message

The 2013 bull sale season was fairly steady and if a person takes into account the number of cows that have left the cow herds in Manitoba, sales were pretty good I would like to remind everybody that the CAA is being held in Guelph, Ontario June 5-9 and would encourage everyone to attend if you can.

Next up will be our second Field Day and Gold Show using the pen show format in Neepawa on July 26, 2013. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for everyone to get out on the land and get their crops in the ground. Until next time, have a great summer.

Quebec Angus Association Message are some new faces on the Board which now consists of Ryan Currie (Vice President) with the other Director positions filled by Donna Donaldson, Jerome Richard, Stan Christsenson, Pierre Laberge and Chris Bushey. Cynthia Jackson was officially designated Secretary and Arlene Brock has agreed to act as Treasurer. Cynthia will be working on a new breeder directory and newsletter in the next month. We will be having a Field Day and Picnic at JD Farms on July 12th and invite everyone to attend. We will have things of interest both purebred and commercial producers. We will be having a Female Sale at Brome Fairgrounds on September 28th so mark the date on your calendar and come out for some quality cattle.

For the first time we will be hosting two Gold Shows this year, one on August 30th at Brome Fair and the second at Beef Expo on October 12th. The juniors will be holding their Annual Junior Show at Beef Expo. Bull sales have done extremely well this year with some of the highest prices ever seen in Quebec. The Green Tagged feeder sales have shown excellent increases both in volume and price. We are all hoping for an early spring and the end of this long cold winter. Hay prices are certainly challenging now, especially for the members in Western Quebec. I am looking forward to representing the members as President of the Quebec Angus Association this year. John Donaldson President, Quebec Angus Association

year we will be hosting the Canadian National Conference in June this event is being held in Guelph Ontario. The Rancher Endorsed day had some exciting speakers and tours planned. Hope everyone can attend this event. The first gold show will be held at Brampton Fair along with a junior show. I hope everyone is having a great breeding season, the grass is turning green and the cows are out on pasture. I hope to meet some new people and catch up with some old friend this year as Ontario President.

Greetings from Ontario, the weather has changed to spring and the planting season has begun. Two spring

junior shows were held in Ontario, both shows the Angus division has the most entries, shown by bred. At Junior Beef Expo in London the Champion Angus shown by Lauren Enright claimed the Supreme bred heifer. At Youth Forum in Orangeville the Champion Angus shown by Jarrett Hargrave received Reserve Overall breeding heifer. Congratulations to all juniors who participated, keep those Angus numbers strong. Tammi Ribey our past president will be our new Canadian director. Thanks to Tom McDonald for all his years of service to the Ontario and Canadian board of directors. In 2012 we hosted 2 very successful National events. The Canadian National Junior show held at Lindsay and the National Angus show held in Toronto. This

Greetings from the sunny and warm East Coast. Most purebred breeders are winding up spring calving and have already bred back some cows to those new bulls they are using in their AI programs. And many commercial herds are beginning spring calving on the grass. Fields are drying up fast this spring and crops are being planted, and a little rain would really green things up.

The 40th Annual Bull sale at the Nappan Beef Test Station in Nappan, Nova Scotia on April 6 was a great success with Black and Red Angus holding the high sale averages, $3600 and $3500 respectively. A lot of Angus steers and heifers have been shown at Spring Show and Sales in all 3 Maritime Provinces. Cole Hunter had the Champion steer, Champion 4H steer and Champion Angus steer at the Carleton County Spring Show & Sale held in Florenceville, NB with his Angus Cross steer. Katie Antworth took Reserve Champion Angus in the 4H classes. The PEI Easter Beef Show & Sale in Charlottetown saw many classes dominated by Angus genetics. The Reserve Champion steer was an Angus raised by Joanne and Ernie Mutch. The Champion Simmental (raised by Joanne and Ernie Mutch), Reserve Champion Maine Anjou (raised by Worth-aBit Angus, Tim Dixon), and the Reserve Champion “Any other breed� (raised by Ronnie Ford) were all Angus influenced. The 4H Champion and 4H Reserve were also Angus influenced steers raised by Worth-a-Bit

Angus, Tim Dixon. Our Annual Maritime Angus field day will be held this year on June 14-15, at Truro Nova Scotia. Details are still being ironed out by the Nova Scotia members, but watch our Maritime Angus blog (http://maritimeangus.blogspot.ca/) for details on hotel reservations, and schedule of events. Perhaps some folks from the west could extend their visit to the Canadian Association Annual Convention in Ontario, and keep heading east to Truro to enjoy some Nova Scotia hospitality, and see some really nice Angus cattle. There has been a lot of demand for Angus genetics this spring as well, with many breeders noticing an increase in phone calls and visits to the farms looking for quality Angus heifers and bulls. Make sure you tag your calves with Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Green Tags and remember to show your Angus pride with the use of these tags in your cattle. Trevor F. Welch President - Maritime Angus Association

Our AGM was held in February with a larger attendance than usual with many new members participating in their first meeting. Rob Smith gave an excellent presentation assisted by Brian Good. There
