Dave’s Desk

e Angus business is certainly vibrant this fall. Sales have been very strong, some achieving sale averages at new higher levels. American interest in our genetics is very evident with many animals going to herds south of the border. is is happening as a results of the work many breeders are doing there. Congratulations and thank you to them for efforts in this regard.

Angus World

e Canadian Angus Association has had it’s Ground Breaking Ceremony for the new Angus Building (see announcement on Page 51). is is a very ambitious untaking that will move the Association into a new level in the industry. ere is a lot of work and planning involved in a project of this magnitude.

When you are doing well it is always wise to take a look back and remember how we got here - the traits, the people, the hard work that helped place Angus in the position it is in today. Continued strength and growth comes from learning from the past while building upon proven success.

e fall calf run is well underway with prices staying steady. We have experienced some challenges in the industry with drought, inputs costs and processing issues, etc., however at this point things are favourable for the beef business and Angus in particular.

2012 Alberta Angus Association Breed Builder - Hall of Fame Inductee Dennis & Shelly Ericson have spent 35 years in the Angus business. Get-A-Long Stock Farm is located at the old family farm two miles east of Woodlawn Angus and 12 miles west of Flint and Flint near Wetaskiwin, AB. Dennis was raised on a mixed farm and with his cousin Len Dyer they played with bulls cut out of the American Angus Journal. However, Dennis’ dad thought he wanted to be a purebred Hereford breeder. He purchased a big old barren Hereford cow. Her first calf weaned off at 350 lbs, had twins the next year, and then couldn’t get her back in calf. That was the end of the Hereford business. When Dennis was ten his father passed away and his mother continued to run the farm. He was a member of the beef and dairy 4-H, being very competitive in showmanship and grooming. He always had big old plain Hereford steers, while his sister ‘who didn’t know one end of a cow from the other’ always had cute little Angus steers, which always beat him. Dennis went to Olds College and came home ready to start dairy farming. Luckily for the Angus business his mother and her new husband did not want to go into debt so his mom told him he should go work for someone else, ‘cause if he broke something they had to fix it! So he became an A.I.

technician for Lacombe A.I. Unit. He worked there for two years, bred cows from Leduc to Innisfail, Bashaw, Rimbey, and all roads in between. Dennis learned his legendary people skills in this job because “a great A.I. man had time to visit, and didn’t run over the family dog or cat”. From there he went to work for Don and Mary Henderson who offered him a part time job at Heatherbrook. Dennis says the real reason was to keep an eye on Doug! He learned a love for livestock from Don and Mary, and from Doug he learned his love for Angus cattle and Angus pedigrees. (Fitting they are inducted in the same year, as it is 45 years since they first met.) Dennis went to work for the National Livestock Brokers of North Platte, Nebraska in 1970. Jim Bladridge proved to be another mentor as merchandising was truly his forte. Jim auctioned the $43,000 Cracker Jack Bull for the Kolesar’s (another inductee this year). Jim also owned Great Northern for the time and was instrumental in the industry. Dennis was there for two years when he realized he wanted to come home and be a Canadian again. He went to work for Transcon Livestock and Rodney James became another one of his mentors.

Fall Edition 2012

Dennis met Shelly at a Simmental Sale in 1975, were married in 1977, and it has been a team effort for 35 years. Dennis bought a skinny, little, underfed red Angus at Red Roundup in 1976 that became a very influential cow in the Red Angus, showing his eye for cattle. At the Happyvale Sale they bought a bull called Metric with Cadence Angus in Montana, Rodger and Kay Bowers. The only reason they could afford him was that he had no ears or tail, and the American’s didn’t think he was pretty. They had a bull but no females, so they went to the Superstar Sale in Calgary in 1976 and bought 12 heifer calves. These heifers went to Cadence ranch to be bred to the no eared bull. Dennis had inside information as he had selected the cattle for the sale, and he had seen all their mothers. He also says “the ones they could afford were not fed good enough, clipped with a chainsaw, and from people no one knew”. In 1978 this group of heifers went north to Ajax Angus, Rob Holowaychuk. Contrary to popular opinion, Rob actually did used to calve cows - this was the beginning of Get-A-Long. They ended up with 9 two year old females, seven of which had bull calves. Dennis learned that “if you’re going to survive, you better learn how to sell bulls.” They sold their first bulls at Cadence Ranch for $1700 - $2000 USD. From their humble beginning, they progressed to their peak, at which they sold 93 bulls by private treating in 2003, the year of the drought. Now Dennis thinks that 60-70 a year by private treaty is reasonable. People would hope that Dennis was around when they went to look at bulls because Shelly was the tougher salesman by far when it came to the Get-A-Long bull pen. Dennis says that the little cow man with a smaller number of cows that bought bulls for $2000 - $2500 every two or three years are the ones who kept the groceries on the table. These customers were and will always be very important to Get-A-Long. The peak in terms of cow numbers came in 2006, when those original eight pairs had grown to 325. That year Ringstead Ranch wanted to buy a complete set of Black Angus cows, so the black portion of Get-A-Long was sold. There were 170 cows and all the black yearlings. The herd size was cut in half, and Dennis said life became fun again. This spring Brylor Ranch made them an offer for all of their red cows. Everything but the herd bulls went to Pincher Creek. They will calve some embryos this year and the year after. Dennis says that “Shelly needs something to do with her spare time!” As far as the future of Get-A-Long’s involvement in raising Angus, only time will tell.


For a farm name that many laughed at when they first heard it, it became a household name that people associated with sound, functional cattle with excellent pedigrees .Dennis says that “the cattle business has been great, but truly the people who have touched our lives have been our reward.” In 1986, things shifted at Get-A-Long when a young man by the name of Boyd Monea knocked on the door and said “I heard you need some help”. Twenty six years later he is still thinking they need some help. That knock on the door has built a friendship and a partnership, and the Brox Red Angus herd. Dennis & Shelly say thanks and congrats to Boyd and everyone at Brox on a job well done. Get-A-Long would not be what it is today without the Monea family. Some days you get a long, and some days you don’t. There were many highlights of Get-A-Long. One of the highlights was selling cattle to many countries. Although Dennis and Shelly never made it to many of these places themselves, the cattle were very successful, and they are very grateful to all of their international customers. One of the first highlights was selling Red Get A Long Licorice in 1979 to Six Mile Red Angus, Ken & Birdie Fraser. Selling the $60,000 Linebacker bull at auction in Agribition in 2001 to Swan Creek was another. They were very fortunate for Linebacker, because that year, the dry weather lead to a $120,000 feed bill at Get-A-Long. At Red Roundup 2007 Misty was the high selling bred heifer to Glengarry Red Angus. In 2007 at the Gala event in Regina, Penny was purchased by Chinook Arch for $20,000. Dennis would like to give a big thank you to Shelly, president of Get-A-Long (it took her 10 years to figure out that title offers no extra money!) Dennis & Shelly were proud to be Angus breeders at the 1985 World Angus Forum, with the Queen Mother in attendance, as well as at the 2009 World Angus Forum at Spruce Meadows. They would like to say thank you for the nomination and are proud to be included in the Alberta Angus Association Hall of Fame. Dennis says that one story should be included in the longest footnote ever written, so here it goes... “In 1967 when I worked at Heatherbrook, I didn’t own anything. Hambley brothers from Benalto were selling a great one in one of Lloyd Pickard’s sales. The cow’s name was Ruth of Glenarden 26U. Anyways, Doug and I both figured this cow should be my very first serious angus investment. I went to my banker and said I would like to buy a cow. He said that was a great idea, would $300 get her bought? I told him it was a registered heifer and she would cost $1000 - $1500. He said I was crazy, purebred cattle are a terrible investment, and there was no way he would even consider loaning me the money on such a ridiculous venture. I said I would take his $300 and find the rest somewhere else. Her heifer calf next spring brought $600 in the 1968 Cross

Country Sale. I won enough showing her for two years to pay the difference. My start in the Angus world cost $1150.” In closing, Dennis summarizes his time in the cattle industry, “25 years of the Hayshaker Sale Series is a feather in all the consignors’ hats. The actual sale of the cattle was secondary to good food, good times, and good friends. Thank you to Geis Angus (Brian, Kim and Family), KBJ Round Farms (Jim and Barry Round and families), Everblack Angus (Ernie & Judy Gibson and family), and Ajax Angus (Rob Holowaychuk). This fun event started in 1983 finishing in 2008 many, many high rollers, plus many new friends year after year. Someone would always step forward to help make it happen. Talk about a sales party, when we could still handle a boat race, or an all nighter. It doesn’t happen that way anymore. Good times, friends, cattle, but most importantly, good certified Angus Beef (and 30 different kinds of homemade pies does make for a good day...pecan pie was my favorite!)”



-Alberta Angus Hall of Fame Awards Presentation

I grew up reading the Angus News magazine that Dick Turner put out and every month was the Get-A-Long ad. You could count on it being there month after month. Just like you can count on Dennis being at a sale that involved Red or Black! He has been the face of the Angus breed for many years and probably would be considered to be the ‘Barrier Breaker’ between breeds. Meaning he is responsible, single handedly, for placing more Red & Black Angus females in the hands of

people from other breeds than anyone else. He knows everyone in every breed and has convinced most of them that they need a few females!! I learned a lot of things about managing sales from Dennis when he was in change of the Mackenzie/Brylor Female Sales at Mountain View, Alberta in the mid 80’s to 90’s. He is a master at not only sortin’ cows, but at sortin’ out people as well!! We not only as Angus breeders, Red & Black, owe Dennis a huge award for his service and dedication to our breeds, but Fall Edition 2012

to Shelly as well. She kept it all together at home while Dennis was on the road making a living for himself and his wife, helping others along the way. Thank you Dennis and Shelly for the opportunity to purchase your excellent set of Red Angus cows with the G-A-L prefix. Enjoy your moments without cows around the yard and take some time to smell the flowers that Shelly plants. Bryan Mackenzie

I first met Dennis Ericson when he came to Heatherbrook in 1967 to A.I. the Holstein milk cow. After graduating from Olds College and taking the A.I. course at Vermilion, Dennis got a job working for the Lacombe A.I. That first encounter quickly developed into a friendship and within a very short time Dennis was living in the Henderson house and working part time with the cattle at Heatherbook while continuing to A.I. Dennis had hopes of becoming a Hereford breeder but I worked on convincing him that Angus was the way to go. A sale managed by Lloyd Pickard was coming up and I helped Dennis select a bred female from Hambley Bros at Benalto. The cow’s name was Ruth of Glenarden 26U and with that purchase Dennis had made his first serious Angus investment. Dennis tells the story of how before the sale, he went to the bank and said he wanted to buy a cow. The banker said that would be a great idea and asked if $300 would get her bought. Dennis told him it was a registered heifer and she would cost $1000 to $1500. The banker said Dennis was crazy, purebred cattle were a terrible investment and there was no way he would even consider loaning him the money on such a ridiculous venture. Dennis said he would take the $300 and find the rest somewhere else. Dennis’ start in his Angus adventure cost $1150. Her heifer calf the next spring brought $600 in the 1968 Cross Country Sale and Dennis won enough showing her for two years to pay the difference. In the summers of 1967 and 1968 Dennis and I took out the Heatherbrook show string. We went to Calgary, Benalto, Red Deer, Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon, had a very successful run and Ruth did very well and in 1968 Heatherbrook had the Champion Bull at Saskatoon. In the fall of 1967, Dennis, John Boake and myself enrolled in the American Herdsman Institute, in Kansas City, MO., run by Dr. Jack Philips and Gail Long. Working there at the time was a young man by the name of Paul Hill who became a top herd manager, later becoming a partner in the Champion Hill Angus Herd and elected President of the American Angus Association. Our term at the American Herdsman Institute was very useful. They taught us herd management, show and sale presentation and merchandizing. We took over thirty head of show cattle to the American Royal in Kansas City; they included Angus, Hereford, Polled Hereford, Shorthorn and Charolais. After the big show at Kansas City, before we were to return home we were taken to one of the famous Steak Houses, the Golden Ox at the Kansas City Stockyards. This was the first time we had ever eaten in a high-end restaurant. In 1967 the Kansas City Sirloin cost $4.50, the Filet Mignon cost $4.75 Page 12

and the red wine was $2.50 per bottle. Dr. Philips told us the Danish Blue Cheese dressing was very special and we had to try it, even at first we might not like it, it was an additional 30 cents and 5 cents more than a glass of red wine. Well, I have been hooked on blue cheese ever since. On the return from Kansas City we went through Denver to see the bull known as “Canadian Colossal” Camilla Chance 37T who the whole industry was talking about. He was the start of the flow of great Canadian cattle to the U.S. that existed all through the 1970’s into the early 1980’s. Dennis and I worked together for another year. In January of 1970, I joined the Sale Management firm of Lloyd Pickard and Associates and in 1970 Dennis went to work for National Livestock Brokers (NLB), North Platte, Nebraska. Jim Baldridge owned NLB, and was a top Angus Auctioneer and Sales Manager who had worked a number of years as a field man for the American Angus Journal. He was one of the owners of “Great Northern”, the Canadian bred bull that was the 1969 Chicago International Grand Champion. After working for Jim Baldridge for two years, Dennis decided to come back to Canada and pursue a career as a ring man. With much perseverance and determination Dennis became a very sought after ring man. In 1975, Dennis met Shelly and they were married in 1977. They soon started the Get-A-Long herd and for thirty-five years have operated this very successful breeding operation. Dennis’ years of working ring, every available cent went back into the farm and the Get-A-Long herd.

Fall Edition 2012

In 1976 in Dennis’ words he bought a skinny little underfed Red Angus at the Red Round Up that became a very influential cow in the Red Angus. At the 1976, Alberta Super Star Sale, Dennis bought twelve heifer calves to start his Angus herd. Dennis was very influential in starting and the early success of the Super Star Sale. The herd grew and by 2003, Dennis and Shelly sold 93 bulls by private treaty and by 2006 their cow numbers had reached 325. Dennis and Shelly sold the Black Angus cows to Ringstead and were left with 170 Red Angus cows and all the Black Angus yearlings. In the fall of 2012, Dennis and Shelly sold the Red Angus cowherd to Bryon Mackenzie. Some of the highlights of the Get-A-Long herd include the sale of Get-A-Long Licorice in 1979 to Six Mile Red Angus, Ken and Birdie Fraser, the selling of the $60,000 Linebacker bull at Auction at the 2001 Agribition to Swan Creek, the high selling bred heifer at the 2007 Red Round Up to Glengarry Angus and a $20,000 bred heifer to Chinook Arch at the 2007 Gala Event in Regina. Dennis and Shelly give a lot of credit to their association with Boyd Monea and his family. For twenty-six years they have certainly contributed to the Get-A-Long success. The success of Dennis and Shelly Ericson is a lesson in having a goal and working hard to achieve success, a great example of, “Dream, Believe and Achieve”. Linda and I congratulate Dennis and Shelly for being inducted into the Alberta Angus Association Hall of Fame as Breed Builders. It was an honor for Linda and I to be honored with them.

I am extremely proud to write a few words about a man that has made a profound impacxt on my life, on both a professional and personal level. There are few men in the purebred livestock industry that are as recognizable as Dennis. Literally everyone in the business in Canada knows Dennis, not only as a breeder of premium Angus cattle, but also as a world class ringman. Few people in our world could possess the complete knowledge of our industry from conception to the final stages of marketing out product as Dennis. From being a part of sales management teams, to blcokman to ringman, he has done it all in a manner beyond reproach. Dennis has always conducted himself as a consummate professional, with the best interests of the seller in mind. Dennis made a huge impact on my professional career, first as an acquaintance, then as a fellow member of many sales staffs, but most importantly as a mentor and close and dear friend. Over the years we have had the good fortune of travelling many thousands of miles together on the sale trail. We have also had the opportunity to experience three world class fishing adventures, both with my family and friends.

The rocognition and awards that Dennis and Shelly have received in the past few years is a real source of pride for not only me and my family, but many others in the industry. It has been one of my life’s most rewarding friendships, and the good news is the book is far from over. Congratualtions on all of the much deserved accoldaes my friend. Brent Carey

Working ring

When I first met Dennis he was working at Heatherbrook Farms, in Lacombe. Dennis and Doug Henderson went on the road showing a large string of Black Angus. They did a great job and us younger guys looked up to them for a few tips on showing and presentation back then.

Through the years, Dennis became a ringman, and a real good one. I have had many people say they would move their sale date to accommodate Dennis being able to work their sale. He worked every sale at “Black Browe� along with some great such as Jim Baldridge, Gary Green, George Anderson, George Earley and Jerry Kanewischer.

It has been a great pleasure and experience to travel with and spend such quality time with such a valuable and great ambassador to the cattle business. Dennis, you are a mentor to me! Brian G. Good

Exactly What Feedyards Want

C E R T I F I E D A N G U S B E E F

Some cattle grow like weeds; some hit the That may be basic intuition for most cattlemen, high-grade targets. Some do both, some neither. says Mark McCully, Certified Angus Beef LLC That’s the way it goes in the world of commodity (CAB) assistant vice president for production. “But cattle. But cattle can be so much more, adding profit we don’t often see how big the dollar difference is throughout the supply chain. between grid-marketed pens of “Cattle that grow fast and grade well cattle that do it all and those that create exceptional value and profit don’t grow or grade well. An potential at all points along the beef $80-per-head profit advantage supply chain,” says Tom Brink, president on a whole pen of cattle is and COO of J&F Oklahoma Holdings enormous,” he says. Inc. The cattle ownership arm of Five Brink evaluated feedyard Rivers Cattle Feeding tracks the bottom performance and carcass data on line, closeouts of feedlot pens in its dozen two groups totaling 63,000 Plains and Western U.S. locations. yearling steers fed at Five Rivers Of course, cow-calf producers want top (see Table). All were placed on feed dollar for calves—they need profit to stay at approximately 800 pounds in business after all. Five Rivers data says (lb.), managed the same and Tom Brink the key to ensuring that profit is to ramp up marketed on a grid in the same the management and genetic potential for both rapid recent time period. “Most of the difference in how these growth and high quality grade in each calf. two groups performed has to be genetics,” he says. “Feedyard managers and packers really like those Cattle from 151 pens (36,266 head) weighed 1,350 lb. or more leaving the yard and graded 65% Choice cattle, and will bid aggressively to get them,” Brink or higher at the plant.

Grid, pen closeouts show contrasting values. Aptly labeling them as High Growth/High Grade (HGG) or Low Growth/Low Grade (LGG), Brink says the top group “did exactly what they were genetically programmed to do, posting excellent results in the process. The [LGG] cattle also expressed their genetics via slower growth, lower quality grades and a poor financial outcome.” Almost anybody can produce the LGG kind, although they probably cost about the same amount to raise as HGG cattle, McCully points out. He and Brink agree that the upper-percentile cattle do not just show up by accident. “Those cattle were undoubtedly produced by people who care a great deal about the genetics they build into their herds, Brink says. “High-quality Angus bulls, emphasizing post-weaning growth and marbling ability, represent a sizable portion of their genetic inputs. The carcass profile of these cattle alone is evidence of that.” The HGG steers spent 16 more days on feed, taking in calories beyond maintenance needs to add energy for growth. “They kept eating and had the genetic propensity to continue growing efficiently and reach a heavier finish weight,” he notes. “Feedyards appreciate that, especially when feeder cattle numbers are limited.” The group of lower performing steers fell 0.29 lb. short of the HGG steers in average daily gain, or 8.7% over the whole feeding period. Equally critical, they gave up a 5% feed efficiency margin. “That’s especially important with today’s feed costs,” Brink says. “Besides saving money, the top steers were better stewards of the high-priced feed they consumed.” You might expect cattle that gain fast and efficiently to have a relatively low cost of gain. “That is exactly what the High Growth/High Grade cattle did, beating their lower-performing peers by more than $5 per hundredweight (cwt.) of live weight gain or 6%. Cattle with lower gain costs are simply more profitable to feed, in this case producing a $25- to $30-per-head feed-savings advantage over the low group,” he says. On the carcass side, the HGG had the weight, dressing percentage and quality grade advantage to beat the average live market price by $39 per head on the grid, compared to the LGG $13 discount. While the lower group did produce better yield grades, those premiums were more than offset by their lighter weights and quality grade discounts.


Most cattlemen intuitively understand that faster gaining, higher grading cattle are more valuable. But few probably realize just how much economic difference exist between the high growth and grade pens of cattle when compared to low growth and grade pens. An $80 per head profitability advantage is absolutely enormous. And also noteworthy is how important the $52/hd difference in grid premiums is to those profits. You have to have pounds but those pounds need to be high quality. “You need pounds,” McCully says, “but it takes pounds with quality to get to this total value advantage of $159 per head.” “The good news does not stop there for our top group,” Brink says. “They were more profitable by $80 per head, so half of that added top-line value they created worked its way right into bottom-line

There was $159/hd difference in value between these two groups of cattle. Putting that back to the original 800 lb steer, that equates to nearly a $0.20/lb difference in value. Cattlemen need ways to identify these high potential genetics earlier to properly assign premiums and discounts on feeder cattle and give feeders some genetic risk management. DNA-based tools like GeneMax will give us that opportunity.

Last February, Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) released a genomic test designed to evaluate Angus-based commercial cattle for growth and quality grading potential. “They chose two very important traits to emphasize—I would even say they chose the ‘right’ traits,” Brink says. “GeneMax™ helps producers identify faster growing, higher grading cattle from within their own herds. It can be used to help select replacement heifers or test steer calves for sale to stocker producers or feedyards.” The test is available in the U.S. and Canada. (http://www.cabpartners.com/genemax/index.php)

“The Five Rivers data showed a $159 per-head gross value advantage for higher grade and growth cattle over lower performing cattle, which amounts to $20/cwt. for the 800-lb. feeder cattle, McCully says. “Cattlemen need ways to identify the high-potential genetics earlier so they can properly assign premiums and discounts on feeder cattle. DNA-based tools like GeneMax will give us that opportunity and give feeders some genetic risk management.”

Brink says over time, “Producers who use GeneMax will have a greater ability to build more growth and quality-grade genetics into their herds. We need many more cattle like the strong-performing steers profiled above. GeneMax can become a key tool to help commercial Angus producers accomplish that goal, and put more dollars in their own pockets at the same time.”

Mabel Hamilton Inducted to Alberta Agricultural Hall of Fame

H A L L O F F A M E A W A R D

Verlyn Olson, Alberta Minister of Agriculture; Mabel Hamilton & Honourable Donald S. Ethell, Lieutenant Governor

Mabel Hamilton is one of Canada’s top purebred beef producers as well as a recognized and respected leader in the Alberta and Canadian beef industry. Along with her husband Gavin, she has been a producer of purebred Angus cattle for 35 years. She is active in all aspects of Belvin Angus, which has led to international respect and an award winning operation. Their Angus bulls and cows are the backbone of many prominent herds across Canada. Belvin genetics can also be found in 15 countries, including the Queen Mother’s herd in Scotland. But it is perhaps as a leader in many beef industry organizations and initiatives that Mabel’s star has shone the brightest. Raised on a purebred Hereford ranch near Balzac, Alberta. Mabel has a degree in education from the University of Calgary. She taught school for 15 years. Following her daughter’s birth, Mabel became the chair of the Alberta Cattle Commission’s Agriculture in the Classroom program. She not only helped design the Grade Four program, including writing the curriculum, she also became the second woman to serve on the ACC board now known as the Alberta Beef Producers. But this was only the beginning. As one of the founding members and past chair of the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency, Mabel

played a huge role in the establishment of Canada’s national cattle identification program. She was instrumental in gaining producer support for the new system – a system that became critically important to the reputation of Canada’s beef industry and the re-opening of export markets after BSE was found in Canada. As president of the Canadian Angus Association, Mabel was at the helm when the Angus breed experienced exceptional growth to become one of the largest and most influential beef breeds in Canada. She also worked with advertising and promotion as a Beef Information Centre director, then chairperson. Her leadership helped refocus the organization and advance consumer education and beef promotion. From 1992 to 1998 she served as a Canadian Cattlemen’s Association board member, and was one of the first women ever elected to this national industry organization. In 1999, as president of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council, Mabel hosted over 700 delegates from the United States, Australia and Canada at the International Beef Improvement

Federation in Calgary, increasing the profile of Canadian genetics worldwide. More recently, Mabel was the sponsorship chair of the highly successful World Angus Forum held at Spruce Meadows in July 2009 and was highly instrumental in its international outreach and participation. And, as chair of the Alberta Cattle Breeders Association, Mabel led a committee that made the 2012 Calgary Bull Sale one of the most successful in its long-term history. As a mother to the next generation of leaders at Belvin Angus, Mabel has helped support her son Colton, who has returned to the family enterprise and is also the immediate past president of the Alberta Angus Association. Mabel’s daughter Quinn, who is the past president of both the Alberta and Canadian Junior Angus Associations, shares this passion. Her volunterism has extended beyond agriculture. She is the director of the annual Bowden United Church dinner theatre fund raiser, a 4-H public speaking judge and past leader, former chair of the community minor hockey association, and coach of her daughter’s basketball team. In 1997 Gavin and Mabel were recognized as the Canadian Cattleman of the Year, making her the first woman to share this award. In 2007 she was recognized by Farm Credit Canada with the (FCC) Rosemary Davis Award for her accomplishments in agriculture and the 2010 Woman of the Year in Agriculture from Alberta Beef Magazine. Mabel Hamilton is a leader, a devoted industry champion, and a passionate advocate for a stronger, more successful and more vibrant beef industry. Her efforts and accomplishments make her a very worthy inductee into the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame.

Quinn, Gavin, Mabel & Colton Hamilton

The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame, held every two years, was created to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the agriculture industry. The 123 men and women named to the Hall of Fame since its inception in 1951 exemplify agricultural leadership and accomplishments. Interestingly only 17 women have been inducted and the last one inducted was in 1991. Three nominators must complete a very complex nomination form plus submit letters of support for the candidate. The 25 plus candidates are then judged by a panel and 3 are chosen. These 3 are then inducted into the Agriculture Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Edmonton. Page 20

Organic Versus Inorganic Selenium for Oral Supplementation by Dr. Michael Jelinski, DVM

Selenium is recognized as an essential trace mineral for ruminants and deficiency has been associated with a variety of clinical and subclinical conditions in cattle including heart and skeletal muscle degeneration (white muscle disease), reproductive inefficiency, mastitis, retained placenta, reduced weight gain and depressed immune function. Soils in many regions of Canada are known to be low or deficient in selenium and consequently supplementation is essential for optimum health and productivity. Other minerals in the feed or water, including molybdenum and sulphur, may interfere with absorption of trace minerals, further increasing the need for appropriate supplementation. Trace mineral supplements come in two basic chemical forms – inorganic and organic. Examples of inorganic forms would include sodium selenate, zinc oxide or copper sulphate. The organic or “chelated form” is made by attaching one or more protein molecules to the trace mineral element to improve absorption across the gut wall and includes compounds such as selenomethionine and zinc methionine. There have been numerous studies published over the last decade comparing the efficacy of chelated trace minerals to inorganic forms on absorption characteristics, animal performance, immune function, etc. While chelated forms generally show some absorption improvement over various forms of inorganic minerals, cost differences between these and the inorganic forms have limited their wide spread use in typical trace mineral mixes. Two recent studies1,2 published in the Journal of Animal Science evaluated the oral bioavailability of organic selenium versus inorganic selenium in ewes and the subsequent efficiency of transfer from ewes to lambs. The studies produced some interesting results. In the first study ewes were orally dosed once weekly with either inorganic selenium or an organic form. The current Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowable limit for selenium supplementation in the diet of cattle and sheep is 0.3 mg/kg dry matter - the same as the limit allowed in Canada by the CFIA without prescription. In this study there were 8 treatment groups and they received selenium as either the inorganic form of Na-selenite or the organic form of Se-yeast at the following levels: (1) 0 mg selenium/week, (2) 4.9 mg/week which is equal to the FDA allowed supplementation rate), (3) 14.7 mg selenium/week which was 3X the FDA allowed rate; or (4) 24.5 mg selenium/week which was 5X the FDA allowed rate. Ewes were treated once weekly for 12 months and selenium whole blood and serum levels were monitored every 1- 3 months. Irrespective of the selenium source, whole blood selenium concentrations tended to peak after about 90-120 days and then decreased during the last third of pregnancy and during lactation due to increased transfer to the growing fetus and lamb. Blood levels of selenium in ewes given the Se-yeast product increased with increasing levels of Page 22

supplementation while the blood levels in the Na-selenite group reached a plateau at the 14.7 mg/weekly dose of Na-selenite. More importantly, blood levels of ewes fed the 4.9 mg/kg dose of Se-yeast were equivalent to levels obtained with either the 3X or 5X weekly doses of Na-selenite indicating that organic Se-yeast has greater bioavailability than inorganic Na-selenite. While the findings in this phase of the study were interesting, the second phase provided important information on how lambs were affected by the selenium status of the ewe. Selenium efficiently crosses the placental barrier into fetal tissues as well as entering colostrum and milk. These are the principal means by which neonates acquire selenium. In the second study the selenium levels were measured both in the blood of the new born lambs as well as in the skeletal muscle at 14 days of age. Similar to the blood levels seen in the study on the ewes, in lambs the selenium levels in blood and skeletal muscle continued to increase with increasing dosage of Se-yeast given to the ewe while the levels reached a plateau at 14.7 mg/week with the Na-selenite form. Also similar to results seen in the ewes, the 4.9 mg weekly supplementation rate of Se-yeast was more efficient at improving Se status of lambs than was the 24.5 mg weekly dosing of Na-selenite. Although a sheep model was used in these studies, the results can reasonably be extrapolated to cattle and have important implications. Since many beef herds have limited selenium supplementation through summer, these findings would support supplementation beginning by December for herds calving in April to optimize selenium transfer from the cow to the developing fetus. Previous research has shown that the selenium level which optimizes immune function is different from that needed to prevent white muscle disease and so it is difficult to determine what the ideal blood selenium level may be for a given herd. Supplementation with inorganic selenium may meet the requirements of most herds if given at the correct levels. However, herds experiencing persistent health problems may benefit from organic selenium supplementation, either at approved levels or higher when dispensed under veterinary prescription. Your veterinarian can assist you in evaluating your herd trace mineral status with ration evaluation and blood sampling and make further recommendations.

To Be or Not to Be - on TV! by Jan Lee, Chico Ranches Ltd.

Promoting the role purebred Angus play in beef production just too good to miss These days consumer education is key. The chance to promote the role purebred cattle play in the beef business in Canada does not arise all that often, so when it came knocking at our door, it seemed wise to grasp the opportunity to feature both our industry and the Angus brand. But what if that promotion is for television - it can be a frightening thought! That’s exactly what happened this fall at our place, Chico Ranches Ltd., located northwest of Airdrie, AB. "Farm Fresh" is a 10 part series, with each half hour program introducing Shaw TV and Shaw Direct viewers to three farm and ranch families in the Southern Alberta region. It's a virtual flavour-filled road trip to learn how they grow their crops, feed their animals and produce their food, according to Jim Cummings, Senior Producer at Shaw in charge of the series. “UFA is proud to support agriculture education and awareness initiatives and we believe that Farm Fresh can extend this reach to the urban audience,” says Jenn Norrie, Manager, Communications and Brand Strategy at UFA, the series sponsor. Lucky us live just in the right region - close to Calgary with great views of surrounding cities, countryside and the Rockies. When contacted about filming our priority at the time was preparing our cattle for the Black Magic Production Sale. Shaw was enthused with the concept as an interesting addition to their series, and after much thought we agreed to participate. The focus: these are the cows that produce the bulls that go on to produce the good Angus beef you eat. Personally I am most comfortable behind the scenes whether it be at a sale, a meeting or in every day life, and thought it was an opportunity to document what is involved in a "reality" TV shoot; all while quietly staying in the background. Boy was I fooled. Too many photos taken that day ended up being of me shooting them filming me. Page 24

Directions: • walk past camera • turn around • do it all over again

The afternoon started with producer Jim and cameraman Ron arriving to scout locations. They ideally wanted a scenic panorama and were immediately sent to our west field which boasts a beautiful backdrop of mountains in the distance. The pair spent quite some time setting up a camera on a finicky pan slide to interview John about daily life on a purebred cattle ranch, its challenges and rewards. Then it was off to the barn where John and our daughter Dallas clipped and tagged a heifer while explaining all the work that goes into getting ready for a sale; how the income from that one day effects your entire year. Top Left: Scouting locations on a Recording for TV may not be quite as nerve wracking as shooting live, it still beautiful October afternoon can be a challenge to remember all you want to say. Not to mention getting Bottom Left: UFA’s Jenn Norrie your point across clearly yet intelligently, and in terms the average consumer discusses strategy with John can easily understand. I found this out first hand when finally convinced to mike up and talk - that Jim is a persuasive fellow. While John is relatively Above: Acting skills on a phone call to demonstrate cell phones as essential comfortable in front of a camera, I certainly am not. Fortunately the capable equipment in a purebred operation ‘A Team’ from Shaw had a way of asking the right questions and listening to [Directions: Photo by Tyler Calhoun] the answers, guiding you to tell your story in your own words. What do consumers want to see? Where and how their food is raised (as it really does not originate in the grocery store). Our dog Jessie riding on the back of the quad got a lot of footage, as did ‘guard’ donkey Ernie, along with our sale females and herd bulls. They all behaved beautifully for the cameras. Four hours and many, many gigabytes of footage later, production was done at our place, but continued two days later at the Black Magic Sale at Olds, where Jim wanted to check up on the bred heifer filmed earlier at the ranch. It is amazing how quickly people can disperse when they see a television camera pointed in their direction, but there were also many at the sale that day who cooperated with the filming. Thanks to them all for smiling and their participation, along with the other Black Magic family operations, Dallas and fiancé Kyle, our son TJ and whenever-we-need-help family friend Tyler Calhoun. How the segment ends up after editing I guess we will all find out soon enough. Yes, you ‘stage’ much of the action to represent reality (I don’t recall ever strolling with John along a fence line unless we were actually fencing); you describe your life and product the best way you can and then hope your message gets across in the final cut. I now know why news crews have their go-to people they ask for a quote or interview time after time. It is obvious that speaking in front of a camera would get easier with each experience. Too often the only time our industry is seen on TV is when a weather or disease “UFA Farm Fresh” Episode 6 (of 10) featuring purebred Angus related disaster occurs. If you get the chance at Chico Ranches Ltd. will premiere on Shaw TV @ 7:30 pm, for a positive promotion, take advantage. Sunday, November 18th. It will go into a rotation throughout Note to Producer Jim: If you asked again the following week and will also be available online. A second if there was anything else I wanted to say, run of playbacks is scheduled for January 2013, with the series I’d have a quite a long list. I’ll be better then available on the national Shaw Direct satellite system. prepared in my next life!

Quebec Feedlot Presented with Eastern Feedlot of the Year Award The Canadian Angus Association is pleased to honour Ferme Jacques and Eric Desrosiers and Ferme B&L (Liette and Benoit) Desrosiers senc of Mirabel, Québec, with the Eastern Feedlot of the Year Award. They were presented with the award by CAA Director of Field Services Brian Good and CAA General Manager Michael Latimer, for their work feeding and promoting Angus and Angus cross cattle. Ferme Jacques & Eric Desrosiers & Ferme B &L( Liette & Benoit) Desrosiers senc are a family farm-feedlot operation located in the territorial region of Mirabel, Quebec, an off-island suburb Northwest

of Montréal in Québec. In 1970, Jacques & Liette purchased the farm from Jacques' father. They managed a herd of dairy cows on a 120 acre farm that was leased from the federal government. This land was part of the expropriation for the construction of the Mirabel Airport. Over the ensuing years they leased additional land in Mirabel and improved the herd. In 1980 the operation sold the dairy herd and the milk quota to start a beef herd. With purchased land, in 1979 they built a feedlot with a slatted floor barn. With the proceeds from the sale of the dairy herd, 300

F E E D L O T A W A R D

feeder calves were purchased. In 1983 an extension of the feedlot was built as well as corrals to hold 600 head. In 1987, the federal government sold back the family farm and the operation constructed a feedlot (drylot) with a capacity of 400 head. The family was fortunate to have two sons interested in agriculture to continue to improve the land and the buildings. In 1994, son Eric finished his course at AgSchool, the Institut Technologique et Agroalimentaire (L'I.TA.) and joined Jacques to form an operating farm company. In 1997, son Benoit finished his course at AgSchool, the InstitutTechnologique et Agroalimentair (L'I.T.A) and formed a business partnership with Liette. Another feedlot (drylot) with a capacity of 1500 head was included. In 1999, Jacques and Liette sold the farm equipment to Benoit and Eric to do custom work for the other two enterprises. In 2000 the capacity was once again increased to 2,000 head. Angus feeders are now bought from Western Canada for the feedlots. Today, Jacques Desrosiers, Liette, Eric and Benoit own 1900 acres, of which 1550 acres are all drained, cultivated land for crops –corn, soybeans and wheat. The total number of animals sold in 2011 was 4000 head with a total gain of 3 million pounds. 90 percent of these animals were Angus Influence.

l-r: Wayne Gallup, CAA Eastern Fieldman, Michael Latimer, CAA General Manager, Liette and Jacques Desrosiers of Les Fermes Desrosiers.

Congratulations to Ferme Jacques and Eric Desrosiers and Ferme B&L Desrosiers. Your hard work and dedication over the years has definitely paid off, and the Canadian Angus Association proudly awards you for your efforts last year and for years to come. The Canadian Angus Association introduced the Feedlot the Year award last year to recognize feedlots that promote Angus to their customers and that feed Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed tagged cattle. The award for 2010, recognized in 2011, was presented to Ferme d’Anjou et Fils of Saint-Agapit, Québec . Cassie Dorran Director of Marketing Canadian Angus Association

Fall Edition 2012


British Columbia Angus Association Message

The calendar may say it’s fall, but it sure feels like summer! Temperatures are still in the low to mid 20’s and very dry. We will enjoy it while we can, as it will change sooner rather than later. Alberta’s hospitality during the CAA Convention in Lethbridge this past June, was second to none. The tour of feed lot alley was a real highlight. The first thing that struck me was the cleanliness. It was a real eye opener and I did learn a lot about their handling facilities and their expectations from us as producers. Doug Haughton, Kamloops, BC received the honorary presidents pin. I have to say Doug was more excited than anyone I know to receive this award.

2012 has been a busy year. Bull sales last spring were above average with Sealin Creek and Poplar Meadows each selling a yearling bull for over $10,000.00. The Pacific Invitational All Breeds Female sale in September was very encouraging as well. Poplar Meadows had the high selling female selling to Clint Ellis and Cordy Cox, Tatla Lake, BC for $4000.00 Every female sold with the heifer calves averaging $2466. BC Angus held their AGM in conjunction with the Pacific Invitational sale. Attendance was down for the meeting, but everyone still appreciated Rob Smith and Gary Latimer taking the time to come and update us on what is happening at the Canadian Angus Association and to attend the sale on Saturday. Thank you to Lynn Jackson and Harry Hooke, Canyon Tree Farms, Fort St. James for donating a beautiful heifer for our fundraising auction. The lucky winner was Red Moon Angus, Vanderhoof, BC We have a good cross section of the province represented on the BC Angus Board. The 2012/2013 BC Angus Board of directors is as follows: Lance Savage, Armstrong – president; Brad Chappell, Courtenay - Vice-president; Lorraine Sanford, Quesnel - CAA director. Directors: Diane Fletcher, Quesnel; Lynn Jackson, Fort St James; Donna Mills, Aldergrove; Tom de Waal, Prince George; Todd Marchant, Big Lake; Steve Gibson, Beaverdell. Fieldservices – Jack Brown, Surrey; Secretary/Treasurer – Jill Savage.

Alberta Angus Association Message

What a great way to start the fall, great hay crops…lots of harvest already done with bumper crops…makes for a great cattle market!! The Alberta Angus Association (AAA) held their Annual General Meeting on August 7 in Bashaw in conjunction with the Alberta Junior Angus Show and

it was a great success. The junior show hosted 61 juniors with 72 cattle exhibits. The AAA membership was amazed at the talent, experience and maturity of our junior members. We are proud to see the Junior Association excelling. Thank you very much to our retiring directors – Colton Hamilton, Bob Hahn, Clint Morasch and Camille Scott. We appreciate the time you have given to the Association. We were fortunate enough to have the following join us as new directors: Greg Pugh, Jill Wildman, Cole Goad, Dave Hofstra and Georgina Smith. We look forward to some fresh new ideas from this terrific group of Angus Breeders. The fall is a busy time for our Association. We have our first Gold Show in Olds at the Fall Classic and the entries numbers were good, we had a red and black show with great numbers. Our second Gold Show will be held at Farmfair on November 9 @ 10 am with a red and black show as well. This year will feature

Frank and Beth Plain received their 50 year membership award from Rob Smith and Brian Good this summer at their home in Surrey. Allison Speller, Monte Lake, BC was the recipient of the $500.00 BC Angus scholarship. Allison is the BC Angus Director for the Canadian Junior Angus Association. She is attending school in Kamloops at Thompson Rivers University. Bulkley Valley Exhibition, Smithers BC and Interior Provincial Exhibition, Armstrong held the Gold Shows this year. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Smithers Show, but Armstrong had a strong representation of Angus Cattle and a good show. BC Angus will have representation at all of the Rancher’s Endorsed calf sales this fall. Jack Brown will be presenting six Angus Influence jackets to breeders throughout the province that have purchased Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed tags in 2012. The jackets have proven to be very popular and are a great way to promote Angus cattle in BC. I look forward to attending the CAA convention in Guelph, Ontario and of course the 2013 CJAA Showdown in my backyard – Armstrong BC.

exhibitor display space so we are looking forward to see how the exhibitors utilize their space. The Alberta Association will host 6 steak fry’s this year at Angus Sales in Westlock, Provost, Stettler, Vermilion, Veteran and Viking. While the Southern Alberta Club will host 8 steak fry’s at Angus Sales held at Strathmore, Stavely, Lethbridge (2), Fort Macleod, Medicine Hat, High River and Brooks. This has been a successful program and we hope to have CAA office staff at some of the sales to promote the Angus tags. The best to everyone getting the rest of the fall harvest off, selling calves this fall and we will see you at the fall shows and sales. Sincerely, Carol High President - Alberta Angus Association

Saskatchewan Angus Association Message

P R O V I N C I A L

Greetings from Saskatchewan Angus Board!!! I hope all is well - what a great harvest season certainly not many stops because of mother nature in most places, although most people would gladly take some time of out of the tractor cab or those dusty corrals in exchange for a three day soaker right now, or at least I sure would. We held our fall director’s meeting on October 1st and had a very good discussion about the future of our

Association and the Angus breed in our province and how we could formulate a strategic plan for that future. We as a board decided we must find ways to add value for our membership with the resources we have in front of us. A committee will be formed to find our way - SAA director Michael Wheeler is heading the committee and will tell you about the way we will proceed on in his report in the Angus Edge. I hope you can find the time to stop around the Angus booth at Agribition and help us out! So on to Agribition notes, plans were finalized for us hosting the show again; many do not realize what it does take to put on a show of this calibre. The entries are up a bit from last year, great news and the Saskatchewan Angus sponsored Masterpiece Sale sounds like it is being supported well with some very good consignments! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors of the show there are far too many to name but if you have sent a cheque into the office for sponsorship, we thank you for that generosity!

If you make it to Agribition be sure to take a walk through the commercial barn and visit some of the commercial cattle exhibitors, of course the barn is high percentage Angus influenced so it should not be hard to find someone to talk about the Angus cattle business and what it may be offering to them. And when you are there check out bull pen alley I am sure it will have a strong showing of some very good Angus bulls displayed in their working clothes. I urge you to try to make time to get out to a Rancher Endorsed Angus feeder sale sometime this fall and see the program as well as some commercial Angus producers and find out their stories of how they may be enjoying the Angus genetics and programs that are in front of them, I believe we may be able to learn greatly from each other! Hope to see you this fall at Agribition, stop by the Saskatchewan Angus booth for a cup of coffee! Respectfully submitted, President, Saskatchewan Angus Association Dale Easton

Once again we will be having our fall gold show at the Manitoba Livestock Expo in Brandon on November 1-3. The Angus show will be on the 2nd at one o’clock and it will be a split show. We always have a solid show with good numbers, strong competition, and a fun environment. This year there will be an All Breeds pick of the barn. This is a great opportunity to find a new addition for your farm or enter an animal and have a chance to win $5000. There is also a jackpot heifer show which always gets a lot of attention and has some great prize money. Fall feeder sales are underway and prices seem to be steady for the amount of uncertainty in the market these days. With soaring grain prices and drought conditions in many parts of North America it’s hard to say what is going to happen in the next few months. We are seeing many commercial cattle producers dispersing there herds

again this year and many of these cattle are not being bought for breeding stock. I think the cow herd is still going to be on the decline with less people willing to expand their herds and fewer young people staying involved in the cattle business. It worries me to see the beef industry in this situation because I believe that the demand for beef may soon exceed what is currently being produced. I would like to wish everyone the best of luck at their fall production sales and on the show road. I would also like to invite everyone to Manitoba - we put on a very good fall gold show and there are also going to be some good female sales this fall. Hope to see you soon.

Angus enthusiasts have been busy in Ontario this past summer and early fall. We were very proud to host the Canadian Junior Angus show this past July. A large number of juniors participated in this well organized and enjoyable event. I am told the juniors raised the most money ever at this event to help finance their activities for the next year. Many Angus breeders have been participating in the many shows we have over the summer and fall season. The Preview show at Brampton Fair had large numbers of animals vying for the $2500 awarded to both champion bull and female. We want to thank Vos Vegas Farms for sponsoring the awards in memory of Ross Bailey. I want to thank all Angus exhibitors for making the effort to show their animals at all shows. It is a great way for the public to see our outstanding breed.

There are many purebred sales being held across the province this fall. So far the prices have been very strong. Take time to visit these sales and try to support your fellow Angus breeders. They are proud of their Angus animals and offering us a chance to share in their genetics. The fall calf run is just starting and hopes are high for good prices. We suffered a severe drought this summer but rains came to most areas in late August and allowed producers to get some second and third cut to help get through the winter. Ontario is proud to host the National Angus Show at the Royal Winter Fair November 4th. We are planning a great show and looking forward to having Angus breeders from across the country and from our friends south of the border join us inToronto. Plans are also underway for the Canadian Annual Meeting which will be held in Guelph next June. Take care, Tammi Ribey President - Ontario Angus Association

Maritime Angus Association Message

Greeting from the Maritimes, as the fall harvest continues we are now getting the rain and moisture that we needed in late summer to help pastures, most Maritime breeders have been feeding some hay to get cattle into fall. It has been a busy summer for Maritime Angus breeders, with Angus cattle doing very well at local and provincial shows. The Maritime Angus Field day was

held in Crapaud, PEI; and was very well attended by Angus breeders, and junior show participants. The local CBC news also had a spot about the Field day on their evening broadcast. At the Field day, Island Meadow Farms of PEI, received the Maritime Angus Commercial breeder of the year award. The Charlottetown Old Home Week show had a record number of Angus cattle shown from all three Maritime provinces, with the Supreme Beef animal (and Champion Angus female) owned by Stephen and Jennie Mutch of PEI. The Reserve Champion Male was also owned by Stephen and Jennie Mutch. Their winning streak continued at the Truro Provincial Exhibition, in Nova Scotia, also claiming the Champion female honors. At the New Brunswick Beef Expo held in Sussex the Champion Angus Female and Supreme Beef animal honors went to Miltonvale Farms of PEI. Taylor Welch’s Angus yearling heifer took the Champion Beef animal honors at the Junior show, held the same weekend in Sussex.

Canadian Junior Angus Association

Hi everyone! Hope that fall is going great for all of you. The Canadian Junior Angus Association is gearing up for more junior events! Our annual scholarship ‘Donation Heifer’ fundraiser at Agribition in November is actually TWO BRED heifers - Canadian Lynn 18Y and Canadian Lynn 22Y. Both are donated by the CAA Staff as their outcome from the 2009 Foundation embryo lottery. Doug & Wendy Newton kindly donated the recipient dams for the staff’s three embryos and shepherded two live calves to weaning. From there, Remitall Farms took possession

of the two heifer calves and have raised them ever since, including a top quality, exciting breeding to Remitall F Odyssey 67X. The CJAA have partnered with the Canadian Angus Foundation on the fundraiser this year and CJA and CAF board members are selling raffle tickets for one of the heifers and the other will be 'dutch' auctioned at the Masterpiece Sale at Agribition. Many thanks to the the CAA staff for the donation, the Newton’s for taking them to weaning and the Latimer family for looking after them for the past year and getting them bred. Also, the CJAA is once again in the process of planning our annual GOAL Conference. This year it will be held in Edmonton, Alberta at the Fantasyland Hotel February 16 - 18. John Fast is going to be the key note speaker and we are planning to have other awesome and informative speakers. Sunday afternoon the juniors in attendance will have the opportunity to experience the West Edmonton Mall! The deadline for registrations is January 10 – check out the web-site for applications and more details on the schedule later this fall. I strongly encourage all juniors to attend this conference as it is educational, a great way to interact with other juniors and a lot of fun!

The 14th Annual Angus in Action sale will be held October 20, at the Nappan Beef test station, in Nappan, NS. There will also be a Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed sale scheduled for Nov 10, at the Truro Stockyards Sale barn. Our Maritime Annual meeting will be held December 2, with new Directors and Executive being elected at that time. Take time to go for a drive and enjoy the Maritime fall colors, and perhaps look over some great Angus cattle while you are out. You may also see some of the new Maritime “Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Farm-Gate” signs on Angus breeder’s gates and barn doors. Remember to order your Angus Rancher Endorsed green tags before calving season begins at your farm, and show pride in your breed. The top breed in the country, by the way. Trevor F. Welch President - Maritime Angus Association

Canadian Angus Association - CEO Message 3) … Red Angus genetics in addition to and equal with Black Angus genetics.

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

Good day, fellow Angus fraternity members; I am sitting in my hotel room in Victoriaville, Quebec writing this at 1:23 a.m. Assistant Registrar Ciara Buchanan and I are here for the Quebec Gold Show, Expo Boeuf, which starts in less than 7 hours, but I’m too excited to sleep so thought writing this made more sense. Please let me share with you what I’m excited about. Ciara and I just had dinner at “Angus Zone” in Saint Agapit, the D’Anjou – family owned and operated vertically integrated participant in our Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program with our logos on the windows and the best quality Angus beef (which means the best quality protein available anywhere, anytime) you can find. We had, respectively, an 8 oz and 12 oz (my diet took a break tonight!) strip loin that was positively delectable, and the whole atmosphere of the restaurant / lounge was exceptional. The bar was truly hopping with a younger demographic listening to the live band jamming out to rock and roll songs from the 1960’s to today, with even a little Michael Bublé thrown in. This was an amazing dinner in an exceptional establishment, and I recommend that you take the time to check it out, about two-and-a-half hours outside of Montreal and within an hour of Quebec City; I GUARANTEE you will not be disappointed!!! I’m also excited because I’m heading for the remainder of this month to Russia and Kazakhstan on a Trade Mission with the federal and Alberta provincial governments. We have been sending hundreds of cattle to these two countries and they are, without a doubt, our most significant importers right now and have been for the past few years. Accompanying me will be CAA President Gary Latimer with three key objectives in mind to achieve during the duration of our trip: To prove the merits and value of…: 1) … Angus cattle over all other breeding alternatives; 2) … Canada as the exporting country of choice;

While I’m in these two foreign lands, I will be posting updates as often as I can (hopefully daily) on our CAA Facebook page so, if you are interested, please check that out. I’m going to try and make this my regular reporting format while I’m away on CAA business, either domestically or internationally, so please look it up if you have time and are a tad interested. I’m VERY excited because the CAA is posting a tremendous year in growth. Our level of registrations is currently 4% ahead of last year which was, in the end, 1% ahead of 2010. The national cow herd may be shrinking, but we are expanding and growing which, accordingly, means we are increasing our domestic market share. For a more expansive perspective on what this mean, and to illustrate the extent to which our chosen Angus breed is truly the greatest contemporary success story in Canada, please read this next section: 2011 Canadian Beef Breed Registration and Transfers Analysis This past month, the federal government posted the analysis of the 2011 registrations and transfers from all our fellow national breed associations and, for the second year, our Angus registry makes up 49 percent of the total national registered Herd Book. Further, we are 45 percent of the total number of transferred animals in Canada. There are basically six tiers of registered stock in Canada representing the Top 10 breeds then everyone else: Top Tier Angus – 55,816 registrations, 1% increase, 49% market share; 23,008 transfers, 4% increase; 2nd Tier Simmental – 17,052 registrations, 2% increase, 15% market share; 8896 transfers, 5% increase; Hereford – 15,078 registrations, 0% increase, 13% market share; 5520 transfers, 0% increase; Charolais – 12,878 registrations, 1% increase, 11% market share; 6998 transfers, 169% increase; 3rd Tier Limousin – 5516 registrations, 18% increase, 5% market share; 2596 transfers, 18% increase;

4th Tier Gelbvieh – 2171 registrations, 33% increase, 2% market share; 884 transfers, 16% increase; Shorthorn – 1979 registrations, 15% increase, 2% market share; 1014 transfers, 17% increase; 5th Tier Maine-Anjou – 683 registrations, 23% increase, 1% market share; 361 transfers, 2% increase; Salers – 582 registrations, 21% increase, 1% market share; 131 transfers, 37% decrease; Galloway – 464 registrations, 28% increase, < 1% market share; 286 transfers, 0% change; Bottom Tier everyone else: < 300 registrations; < 1% market share. So we do see where other breeds experienced the same level of growth in this past year than we did; in some cases even more as a percentage of their previous year’s Herd Book – namely Limousin. I consider, however, the most important metric to be the total change over the course of the past 11 years, and in that metric there is only one story and it’s alllllllll Angus! This list is ranked from the highest growth to the highest decline: Posting Growth (only two breeds, both originating in Scotland! Let’s hear it for the Scots!!!): Angus: 52,880 to 55,816 for an increase of 2936 or 6% since 2001; Galloway: 448 to 464 for an increase of 16 or 4% (the only other market share increase in Canada); Posting Declines (making up the 36,559 registration decrease or 24% from 150,380 in 2001 to 2011’s 113,821): Shorthorn: 2273 to 1979 for a decrease of 294 or 13%; Simmental: 23,661 to 17,052 for a decrease of 6609 or 28%; Gelbvieh: 3624 to 2171 for a decrease of 1453 or 40%; Limousin: 9220 to 5516 for a decrease of 3704 or 40%; Hereford: 25,552 to 15,078 for a decrease of 10,474 or 41%; Charolais: 25,649 to 12,878 for a decrease of 12,771 or 50%; Maine-Anjou: 1523 to 683 for a decrease of 840 or 55%; Salers: 1531 to 582 for a decrease of 949 or 62%. continued on next page

Fall Edition 2012


Canadian Angus Association - President’s Message

After having over a month of great harvest weather with farmers working around the clock, most field work is wrapping up. Bins are full and the fall cattle sale season is gearing up. So, the opportunity arises to expand your herd with the purchase of proven genetics from our breeders at sales that take place across Canada. I encourage Angus members to get

out and support all the fall shows and sales. It's a great way to meet fellow Angus breeders and to visit about breeding programs. Also, remember to top up your cattle numbers. Angus will be in great demand knowing feed costs are going to be high coupled with the Angus breed’s ability to efficiently convert feed to profit. CEO Rob Smith and I travelled to BC for their annual meeting, and there was lots of optimism at the meeting and well attended sale. The sale averaged $800 more than last year. The quality of cattle was excellent, so congratulations on the going forward attitude. After all reports were in at the Board of Directors’ September meeting, it was very evident that every region has lots of activity with organizing shows, sales, preparing newsletters and Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed sales. It was a very interesting meeting your Canadian Angus Association directors had. Topics included quite a few ideas

of how to add value to the Angus breed, how to be at the forefront with international trade of live cattle, keeping the push for the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program all the way through to the commercial sector, having more tools more easily accessible to the breeders such as genomics testing, keeping our registry efficient, and providing more information on performance data. Keeping up-to-date is essential, so always check the Canadian Angus website for new information. The sod has been turned for the new Canadian Angus Association office. CEO Rob Smith has his hands full with permits on construction detail. This is turning into a great facility for the Angus breeders of Canada. Looking forward to visiting with as many of you as possible at the events this fall. Gary Latimer President - Canadian Angus Association (403) 507-1123

CEO Messsage continued . . . So while I think it is always necessary and essential to pay attention to your competitors, we do have to be honest; there is one major success story in the Canadian cattle industry in the past 11 years and that whole entire story is Angus Angus Angus! Everyone else’s story is either a triple-digit loss in total registered numbers and a double-digit loss of percentage of registrations. I know we can’t get complacent, but whenever anyone goes to feed you a line about any particular breed’s ‘buzz’ or ‘momentum’, please feel free to quote these numbers because the metrics don’t lie!!! Tying this to the national commercial cow herd, we maximized at 17 million head in 2005 with an inventory in 2011 of 12.5 million for a 27% drop. We have also decreased our total number of producers in that time frame by 25%. Angus continues to increase. So please remember… there’s us… and then there’s everyone else! I’m excited because tonight Mabel Hamilton was inducted into the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve been inundated nationally with media reports of the problems at the XL plant at Brooks. When I think of the number of excellent Angus steaks I’ve consumed sitting around Gavin and Mabel’s dining room table in the past few years (mostly with World Angus Forum dialogue dominating the conversation), it makes me focus on what we do that’s good and right as opposed to our occasional stumble; Mabel Hamilton has certainly done so many things right and tonight, in Edmonton, Alberta, she is being thusly acknowledged for doing so.

I’m excited because our Canadian Beef Breeds Council is receiving the makeover it needs with my predecessor, Doug Fee, at its interim helm. This is an incredibly important organization that is our purebred sector’s voice and representation with government and industry and it has, in the past few years, lost its way. Through the hard work and dedication of some of our personalities (like David Bolduc, now the CBBC Vice Chair) as well as my counterparts in the other breed associations, we will reform this organization to be ‘better, stronger, faster’ than its ever been, and a whole pile more representative. I’m excited because, last week, we ‘broke ground’ on our new Angus office building. This is such an exciting development and gives Angus our true national home and identity. Complete with our own landscaping and boardrooms and hospitality area and museum / archival library, the “National Angus Centre” is the realization of a longstanding dream for many Canadian Angus cattlemen and will be a focal point of pride for our Angus fraternity for generations to come. I’m excited that it is the fall calf run and we will have hundreds of thousands of Angus calves selling in Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed feeder sales in the coming months. Please check one (or more) of these out because you are our greatest Angus advocate and voice. No one spreads our ‘gospel’ like you to our collective… and your specific… commercial base. I’m excited because it is the fall show and sale season and there is nothing I love more than ‘marrying’ the inspection of our people’s best quality cattle to the best aspect of our industry… our people… over visits and

hospitality at shows and sales. Even if you don’t show, or your don’t buy, come out to these events anyway and talk to your fellow Angus breeders and CAA members; you will learn something, you will reaffirm or expand your network, and you’ll likely make a friend or two and those are always good to have. Finally, I’m excited for the work our… YOUR… CAA Board of Directors did last week at their meeting in Calgary. From recommitting to the need to establish a provably pure Herd Book to their commitment to genomically enhanced EPDs, they are most certainly working for you and bringing about positive change and progress for the Canadian Angus cause. This is a very dynamic, forward-thinking Board and I believe there is no-telling what they’ll achieve in a few short years. If you have ideas, I really recommend that you share them with your elected Board members because it is a certainty that this group will bring your ideas forward for discussion and decision. Who knows… your idea might just change CAA policy or lead to a new program for membership value enhancement. So I’m just excited. If I get to see you this fall, let’s share this excitement together and talk and celebrate Angus! Our status has never been higher and our future has never been brighter! Cheers, Rob Smith Canadian Angus Association Chief Executive Officer

Canadian Angus Association - General Manager’s Report

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

Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed e importance of ‘Branding’ A common topic of discussion over the past year revolves around ‘branding’. No, not the ‘branding’ of your cattle with a branding iron. I am referring to the branding of you, your farm and your cattle as a piece of your marketing image. Your brand includes all of these and more. Your brand is created beginning with the style of hat you wear to the quality of your cattle, the look of your sale barn, your advertisements in this magazine, your logo, to how you treat your customers. Everything you do affects your brand. The branding of beef is a relatively new concept and is one of the reasons Angus is in the position it is today. Purebred breeders have been involved in branding for a lot longer than I have been

around and have done a good job. By creating an identity for your farm, you create an emotional attachment for your customer that transcends specific details. Take John Deere for example. Before you go look at a John Deere tractor you already know quite a bit about it. You know what to expect for service, parts, sales, performance, resale, and what your neighbors will think. You know all this before you set foot in the dealership and will have decided if it is the right one or that maybe it is the New Holland that you prefer. Branding your farm is pretty much the same. Your customers will know quite a bit about your operation before they buy from you. There is not a right or correct brand to strive toward, and Angus breeders have been successful with a wide range of brand identities. Be true to yourself and identify your strengths, weakness and look for opportunities. Study your competitors, and identify what they are good at and where they could improve. Find what works for your operation and be mindful that you are establishing your brand. Look to set your operation apart from your competitors’. And remember “Your reputation precedes you…” Canadian Angus Foundation The Foundation is preparing to send two teams to compete in the Youth Program at the 2013 World Angus Forum in New Zealand. A whopping $40,470 was raised by the Foundation

at the CAA National Convention in Lethbridge, Alberta. This will be used to support the Junior Ambassador program and the 2013 WAF Youth Program. The Foundation is also working with the Canadian Junior Angus Association in a joint fundraising project. The staff of the CAA were fortunate to win one of the lots in the 2009 World Angus Forum Embryo Lottery. The result was two Black Angus heifers that were donated to the Foundation which in turn donated half to the CJAA. The two heifers are now safe in calf (REMITALL F ODYSSEY 67X) and will be auctioned and raffled at Agribition 2012. You can find more information on the heifers by using the CAA Animal Inquiry function on the CAA website. They are CANADIAN LYNN 18Y (1599534) and CANADIAN LYNN 22Y (1599535). Feel free to contact either myself or Belinda Wagner on locations to purchase tickets or to view the heifers. The Foundation board is passionate about supporting our youth and giving them every opportunity for long successful careers in agriculture. More information about the WAF Youth Program application process and other Foundation initiatives are available on the Foundation website www.canangusfoundation.ca.

Canadian Angus Association - Registration Department

As everyone is coming out of the fields and the end of the year quickly approaches, it is time for a reminder of board changes that will take effect January 1, 2013.

HERD NAMES: It will be mandatory for every herd to have a herd name. Placement of the herd name will also be standardized to be the prefix of the calf name so that the herd origin will always be identifiable. Starting January 1, 2013 if your herd name is “Bubbles”, all of your calves’ names will start with “Bubbles”. Example: BUBBLES EXTREME DIVA 2A or RED BUBBLES EXTREME DIVA 2A. HERD SIRES: Also, starting January 1, all herd sires born 2013 or later will require both dam and sire verification. Regardless of your sire serving your herd as a walking bull or AI sire, all bulls will need to be parent verified. If you are keeping bulls to sell, you should be testing their dams as soon as possible, so we have the SNP markers on file. ET CALVES: Effective immediately, we have changed the format for registering ET calves. Rather than having transfers pending and

holding up registration, we now require information on each flush. Each Flush Recovery, regardless of the number of embryos received, will be charged $30 for the flush. Once that flush is recorded, as long as the flush information is given, we will process the registration. DNA testing will still be required for the calf to be registered, but you will not be held up with a transfer. Needless to say, to speed things up, if you have a Flush Recovery, sending in the documents prior to the registration of the calves will assist us greatly in moving your registration along. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the office. Enjoy the fall!

are assuring membership value by building equity in what will be the Centre of Excellence and Service for Canada’s Angus customers, supporters and partners.” “We are extremely excited as we look to the future in providing our members with the best possible service and the highest achievable value,” said CAA CEO Rob Smith. “The CAA goal is to maximize the Angus advantage of providing our nation’s consumers with the most consistent, demanded beef product in the world. Our members deserve a world-class facility where industryleading thought and innovation takes place assuring not just our security as Canada’s number one beef breed but catapulting Canadian Angus into the global cattle and beef trade spotlight.” The CAA will focus on administration of member services, training, meetings, promotions and industry partnerships in their new building. With the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program at an all-time high for demand, the future of the new CAA building will provide means for improved marketing and exchange of ideas.

“The building completion cannot come soon enough for our Association,” said David Bolduc, Past President of the CAA and President when the decision to move forward with the project and purchase of land was made. “We have anticipated this kind of value for our membership for years. With the CAA experiencing growth at a time when the national cow herd is shrinking, we have the momentum and the passion to create a national identity to further the Angus movement, increasing domestic and international market share and recognition of our Angus brand, the most recognized beef brand in the world for quality.”

Stacy Price Registrar, Canadian Angus Association

Ground Breaking Ceremony of New Angus Building Work has officially begun on the new office site of the Canadian Angus Association after groundbreaking ceremonies took place on Monday. A consortium of CAA board of directors, members and staff helped with the ceremony which included live Angus cattle and building contractor Boychuk Design Build. The new building will be Canada’s leading beef breed’s first owned national centre. The building may include additional beef and cattle industry organizations among tenants. Planning permissions are being secured from Rocky View County with the building schedule suggesting occupancy in the new building as early as the fall of 2013. The building will be located near Airdrie, Alberta, east of Balzac and the QEII highway. The new building will provide a modern, more easily accessible office with pride of ownership. “This is the satisfaction of decades’ worth of dreams and goals from many members of the Canadian Angus fraternity,” says Gary Latimer, President of the CAA volunteer board of directors. “We’ve come close in the past but now we

The Power of Information: the Canadian Angus Association offers Pfizer and Igenity marker panels for more accurate EPDs. The Canadian Angus Association has reached an agreement with Pfizer Animal Genomics and Igenity to offer its members Table 1 Trait Calving Ease Direct Calving Ease Maternal Birth Weight Weaning Weight Yearling Weight Average Daily Gain (Post Weaning) Milk Marbling Rib Eye Area Fat Carcass Weight Dry Matter Feed Intake Residual Feed Intake Tenderness Docility Yearling Height Scrotal Circumference Mature Weight Mature Height Heifer Pregnancy

genomic marker technology that will increase the accuracies of EPDs. In addition, the Association, with Livestock Gentec, has secured funding from Alberta Innovates Program (AIP) that will allow Association members to get this technology on a “2 for 1” price base. These genomic tools provide data that is the equivalent to approximately 10 progeny data points for incorporation into EPD calculations resulting in more accurate EPDs. To date, the Association has only included physical measurements such as birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight and ultrasound data into the calculation of EPDs. We can now look forward to Genomic marker information and eventually progeny carcass data which can also be included in the calculation of EPDs. The result = more accurate EPDs for younger animals so that you can use them with confidence.

Igenity Score 1 - 10 10 = more unassisted 10 = more unassisted 1 = lighter 10 = heavier 10 = heavier 10 = heavier 10 = more milk 10 = more marbled 10 = bigger 1 = less back fat 10 = heavier carcass 1 = eats less 1 = lower feed / lb 10 = more tender 10 = more docile 10 = more hip height 10 = larger 10 = heavier 1 = more height 10 = more pregnancy

For Canadian Red Angus Breeders: the Association in conjunction with the Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) is offering the Pfizer 50K HD Red Angus Panel priced at $139 (a 2-for-1 pricing of $75 from November 1st 2012 to March 31st 2013 with AIP funding). For Canadian Black Angus Breeders: the Association is offering the Igenity Angus Specific Panel, $85 (a 2-for-1 pricing of $45 from November 1st 2012 to March 31st 2013 with AIP funding) and the Pfizer 50K HD Black Angus Panel priced at $139 (a 2-for-1 pricing of $75 from November 1st 2012 to March 31st 2013 with AIP funding). *At the time that I am writing this, this is pending an agreement from the board of directors for AAA. Reporting and Traits: Results from all three panels will be incorporated directly into our two genomic evaluations for more accurate EPDs. In addition, the Association will make available Igenity and Pfizer Percentile Ranks scores. Below are the traits and the percentile rank information that members will receive. (Table 1) The American Angus Association, who have been using the Igenity and Pfizer panels towards more accurate EPDs on young unproven animals, for three and two years respectively, and have calculated the correlation they’ve seen between the panel results and phenotypes in the AAA database. These results are listed below so that you know the strength and accuracy with which each panel will add to the prediction of breeding value for your animals. For most traits, the panels from both companies have similar prediction power.(Table 2) Historically, EPDs have been calculated using an animal’s own performance and performance records from parents, half sibs, sibs, and progeny. EPD calculations can also use other data points like genomic marker panel information and progeny carcass data. The Canadian Angus Association is developing the ability to include these extra data points into our EPD calculations to give its membership more accurate EPDs for younger animals. 2 for 1 Pricing: The Association is very pleased to be able to offer its membership the opportunity to buy 2 DNA tests for the price of 1 through AIP funding that was secured with Livestock Gentec. Not all Canadian Beef breeds will be able to do this for their membership. continued on next page


Canadian Angus Association - Field Staff Report

By the time this report reaches your hands a lot of water will have gone under the bridge in the cattle world. With feeder sales getting into full swing, it will be interesting to see

Breed Development continued . . . This funding can be applied to the Pfizer 50K HD panels and the Igenity Angus Specific panel, as well as, SNP parentage verification. From November 1st 2012 to March 31st 2013 Canadian Angus members will receive SNP parentage verification at $12 per test. This is a great time to parentage verify your cows in preparation for the new Sire

what kind of impact our recent packer troubles will create for producers. It has held steady compared to last year, which is a positive and exciting happening. There are a number of great female sales booked for fall, some that can definitely increase our cow numbers in areas if kept in the system. Right from BC to the Maritimes, the bred heifer sales will be in full force come November. Along with them are a number of purebred sales, both production and dispersal sales. A lot of great cattle will be going through the ring this fall. Angus, again, is in great demand from our feedlots with the demand holding all the way through to the consumer, both on the retail and food service levels. Lets take a minute this

fall and attend a commercial sale be it a feeder, replacement bred heifer or cow sale, and give our customer some confidence about our great breed of cattle. Our field staff will be out and about and talk to lots of people regarding Angus. Get your customer to become familiar with the programs that are so essential in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing. Give any of our guys a call, and they will and can assist you with questions about tag ordering and much more. See you all at a sale or show this fall.

Parentage Verification policy which states that any bull born after January 1st 2013 will need to be parent verified (to both sire and dam) before any progeny from the bull are eligible for registration. A $12 SNP parentage verification test will make multisire pastures and ensuring accurate pedigree information economically possible. Ordering Kits: Test kits can be ordered by

contacting the office. DNA test results of any kind will only be accepted if the test request was processed through the Association. Please contact Kajal Devani, Director of Breed Development Canadian Angus Association, for more information.

Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed

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

Summer months bring many opportunities for people from across the beef industry to get together at events, conferences and forums. These opportunities provide insight into global trends and markets and updates on what other organizations and companies are doing; strategies can be aligned, partnerships formed and new ideas seized which can be used to strengthen programs and services offered by the Angus Association. The optimism and excitement out there right now is contagious with so much great stuff happening right now. One of the great things I noticed at many of these events was that everyone was talking Angus. Over and over again

Angus was recognized from Angus branded beef programs to showcasing the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed program as a successful example of proactive industry leadership. The momentum surrounding Angus right now is moving at astronomical speed, and there is so much going on. The Angus tag program specifically is growing but more work still needs to be done. To keep this going we need everyone's help. If it takes a village to raise a child, it definitely takes every Angus member to tag every eligible animal in the country. I have been trying to find a way to clone myself over the last month, but alas I have been unsuccessful so it is impossible for me (even with the help of our great field staff) to reach every eligible tag customer. This is where help is most needed. As producers, selling purebred animals and providing an entire customer service experience includes taking the time this fall to touch base with your bull customers and see how the their calves turned out. This is a great time to speak to them about the tag program. We also run the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Feeder Calf Listing and the Fall Feeder Sales program which are directly aimed at the commercial producer. Further information is available on both these programs from our website, or feel free to call me or any of our field staff.

I will be out and about again this fall and winter selling tags at various events. Watch for me at Agribition, Ag Days in Brandon, Manitoba, and Camrose Bull Congress in Camrose, Alberta. Other events are also being finalized; watch our website and Facebook page for the most up to date list. Looking even further ahead, it is never too early to start planning for your bull sale. We will have information packages available upon request full of information to have at the sale or to send out when you mail the transferred papers. I hope to attend some sales again this year. If you are interested in having me attend your sale, please send me an email as soon as possible so arrangements can be made. If there is anything else I can do to help you in promoting Angus and Angus programs, please feel free to contact me. Also, be sure to say hello to me or any of the field staff this fall while we are out and about. Cheryl Hazenberg Director of Technical Services Canadian Angus Association


Canadian Angus Junior Ambassador Report

For the first time this morning, I woke up to it being dark outside, and the fact that I am

writing this report as a much needed break from studying, I think I can safely say that fall is upon us. Although I am not looking forward to the upcoming cold weather, there are many things about the fall that I am looking forward to. Like so many of us, fall to me means show season, and as the ambassador, I am excited to spend my fall at many shows across the country. At the beginning of November I will be starting out at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, Ontario. This is the show I am most excited for as I have grown up hearing all about it but have never had the opportunity to attend. From there, FarmFair

International in Edmonton, Alberta, is just around the corner. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see many of my fellow Angus breeders out and about in Edmonton. I have a short break then in which I may actually attend school for a little while. Then, I am off to Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, Saskatchewan. Agribition is always a great chance to see so many great people and great cattle. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to begin my travels this fall and to see many of you along the way! Contact me if I can help as the Junior Ambassador at your upcoming event. Stacey Domolewski Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador

2012 Canadian Junior Angus Association Scholarship Donation Heifer

The annual 'Donation Heifer' fundraiser at Agribition in November is actually TWO BRED heifers - Canadian Lynn 18Y and Canadian Lynn 22Y. Both are donated by the CAA Staff as their outcome from the 2009 Foundation embryo lottery. Doug & Wendy Newton, Heart Bar Angus, kindly donated the recipient dams for the staffs' three embryos

and shepherded two live calves to weaning. From there, Remitall Farms took possession of the two heifer calves and have raised them ever since, including a top quality, exciting breeding to Remitall F Odyssey 67X. The CJAA have partnered with the Canadian Angus Foundation on the fundraiser this year, and CJA and CAF board members are selling

raffle tickets for one of the heifers with the being 'dutch' auctioned at the Masterpiece Sale at Agribition. Many thanks to the the CAA staff for the donation, the Newton's for taking them to weaning and the Latimer family for looking after them for the past year and getting them bred.
