Seems like there is no such thing as a normal year. e good news is that for the most part we have been getting a lot more moisture than ‘normal’. It does create some challenges as far as putting hay up, however, there is lots of pasture. Indications are positive for the fall as those who study crop production are saying yields will be up. Increased volume of grains should moderate the price some and allow

cattle feeders to lower their input costs. is should in turn be an indicator of good things to come when it is time to sell calves. is fall there will be an excellent opportunity to access some very high level genetics from breeders who are reducing the size of their herds or dispersing. In these situations, the core of a herd which normally is not available to purchase will be for sale. It is a time when depending on the need, either volume, quality or in most cases both can be procured. It may be a good time to add some different bloodlines to diversify your herd.

Those who work with cattle on the hoof rarely cross paths with the folks who work with beef on the plate, but they each play a vital part in the other’s success. Any gap between them was bridged when 40 distributors, chefs, restaurant managers and retail buyers gathered in Calgary, Alta., this June for a Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) “Canadian Roundup.” They came to learn about the lifecycle of the beef they market and serve, so they are better informed in working with consumers, explained Larry Corah, CAB vice president. “A uniqueness of our brand is we really interface with everyone from the Angus seedstock producers to cow-calf, feedlot, packing, retail, foodservice and all the way to the consumer,” he explained. To get that pasture-to-plate experience, attendees visited Hamilton Farms purebred Angus ranch, Ballco Feeders and Cargill’s High River packing plant. For many, this was their first exposure to cattle production. “I definitely have a much greater appreciation for the amount of time and effort it takes to produce and deliver the Certified Angus Beef we serve in our restaurants,” said Henrique Laier, senior purchaser for Page 8

JOEY Restaurants, a popular CAB-licensed chain with 22 locations in Canada and Washington in the U.S. Rob and Gail Hamilton, along with their sons Wyatt, Wacey and Joel hosted the group at their 300 cow black Angus ranch in the Alberta foothills near Cochrane. In a Hamilton barn covered in ribbons and banners from fairs and livestock expositions, Rob and Gail talked about why they show cattle: “an opportunity to make industry connections and market cattle on an international scale,” Rob said. Gail said all cows are bred first by artificial insemination (AI), her area of expertise, and then the couple fielded questions about the greater breeding accuracy and timing, as well as calving and the marketing of bulls and females. The family’s well-known herd sire, HF Tiger 5T, was on display along with a first-calf-heifer daughter.

In a panel discussion where Rob represented the seedstock segment, Canada Beef’s Duane Ellert spoke for commercial ranchers and Corah held the standard for stocker-backgrounders. CAB Packing Director Clint Walenciak took on the feeder’s role as the group covered basics of production including genetics, nutrition and antibiotic and hormone use. Animal health and detailed records were next for veterinarian and beef industry expert Troy Drake, who explained how producers like the Hamiltons can use data to select replacement heifers and guide every aspect of management. How did all this come across to the people selling beef to consumers? “In terms of the CAB brand, I have learned it is a high-quality product that is well recognized, not only by the people that work in our industry, but also by our guests,” Laier said. “When visiting any of our restaurant locations, our guests know to expect a great product and that is very important to us.” JOEY has been a CAB partner for more than 15 years and features CAB top sirloin on menus across Canada.

Laier was joined by nine others including chefs and managers from the chain’s Alberta restaurants for a roundup that will resonate through the company, he said. “When people have an experience like that, they get excited about what they do. They get excited about serving the product,” Laier said. “At the end of the day I believe that all funnels down to our guests.” Following more Q&A around the cattle with Drake and the Hamiltons, and culinary innovations explained by CAB’s Heidi Schroeder, hungry guests first savored the aroma from the grill and then the flavor of 16-oz. bone-in CAB “cowboy” ribeye steaks. The next morning, it was down to Ballco Feeders near Brant, Alta., where operations manager Mike Pollard explained buying, feeding, health and shipping. He conveyed just what they try to accomplish at a feedlot, how they use well-formulated diets and everything else they do to create animal comfort. Then, over a smoked brisket lunch, Mat Bolduc of Cudlobe Farms, Stavely, and commercial customer Del Giles, Brooks, talked about the importance of continual genetic improvement to ensure production of the best possible calves for delivery to feedlots.

Half of the Roundup group took in the feedlot first and then the tour at Cargill High River packing, while the other half started the day with that disassembly line, sort of touring upstream in the supply pipeline. It began with boxed beef and cutting, “the breaking down of beef in reverse order.” Next it moved to the coolers for a look at grading and uniformity standards before heading onto the main harvest floor where cattle come in one end and carcasses go out the other. It was not the first “roundup” for Roger St. Onge of Longo’s, an independently owned retail chain based in the Toronto area, but he values every chance to stay connected. “These experiences ensure that I’m on top of my game,” he said. “When someone asks me questions, I can say that I’ve been there and I know what happens because I’ve had the opportunity to speak to everyone in the process, from the packer to the farmer.” St. Onge said an understanding of the industry is critical to his role as a meat specialist, where he deals with the selection, placement, price and promotion.

“We always want to be known for carrying the best meat, not the cheapest,” he said. “It needs to perform on the consumer’s plate. And CAB has set the standard.” Longo’s has been a brand partner since 1997, and today their meat cases feature the CAB brand prominently. “I think this experience would be beneficial for everyone at Longo’s,” St. Onge said. “It helped elevate my knowledge and ensure that I can continue to comment on the beef industry, on behalf of producers, to our consumers.” This was the second CAB “Canadian Roundup,” and Corah foresees the need for more such events as the brand presence and influence spreads. “We’re continuing to grow on both production and sales in Canada,” he said. “We want to create better understanding among consumers about how food is produced, but likewise, we can help ranchers better understand consumer expectations.” As of mid-year 2013, Canadian certification rates for the brand were running considerable higher than last year, despite some challenges. “We are optimistic we could see at least a 50% increase in the amount of Canadian-produced CAB tonnage—and that will be well received by our many Canadian CAB retailers and restaurants.”

Calgary Firm Leads Development of BIXS 2

The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) has contracted Arcurve Inc, a Canadian-based software development firm, to create the next version of the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS). The first of a sequence of releases of ‘BIXS 2’ is targeted for the fall of 2013 with each successive release offering additional benefits to BIXS participants. The first release will emphasize easy import and export of data and a tool to help purchasers source important animal attributes within the beef supply chain. Arcurve was the successful bidder in a rigorous request-for-proposals process that solicited responses from software development firms across North America. “Our team is excited to be working with such an experienced, professional and motivated group as Arcurve,” says Larry Thomas, BIXS national coordinator. “We are very pleased to have been selected by CCA to work on the innovative and exciting evolution of BIXS,” says Jay Gohill, President of Arcurve Inc. “We look forward to bringing our technical expertise together with the knowledge at CCA to deliver a state of the art solution for the industry.”

Last winter the BIXS team began a process to evaluate the current version of BIXS to pinpoint shortcomings and decide on a pathway forward. The team interviewed commercial beef industry software development and service firms, packers, feedlots, retail interests, existing value chains and others to discover the precise benefits needed from BIXS. This feedback was used to build a specification of the next version of BIXS. BIXS 2 will be smaller and more nimble than the current version. It will be easier and quicker for users to get onto and get data in and out of. Import and export functionality will be improved and it will handle many thousands of users and millions of records. BIXS 2 will key only on cross-segment data of economic importance and avoid duplicating existing commercial software systems and services. And the next version will enable blind queries using a Sourcer Utility, which enables cross-segment communication based on individual animal or carcass data or health and management protocols. The new version will be animal-centric where actions are applied to animals and recorded across their lifetime up to detailed carcass data acquisition.

BIXS 2 will be built for quick, effective and reliable interfacing with existing software systems, and will be significantly less expensive to build, maintain and evolve than the current version, which is critical to the sustainability of BIXS. “An industry-wide information sharing system remains one of the key priorities for the Canadian Cattlemen’s Associations and I am encouraged with the announcement of our involvement with Arcurve,” says Travis Toews, chairman of the BIXS advisory committee to the CCA Executive. BIXS is presently funded through AAFC’s Agricultural Flexibility Fund as part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.

Coul Angus of Scotland Sponsors Chuckwagon This year the for the first time the Calgary Stampede had an overseas tarp sponsor for the Chuck wagon races. James Arnott of Coul Angus from the county of Angus in Scotland was that person. The law firm Burnett Duckworth and Palmer bought Jordie Fikes wagon and then donated the wagon to the Calgary Food Bank. The Food Bank then sells the advertising rights on the canvas for each night. It is a successful fund raiser for the Food Bank and this year with the flooding in Calgary the Food Bank resources were stretched to the limit. On the first Friday of the Stampede James and friends were entertained at the chuckwagon barn and then witnessed the race. It was a very cold and wet evening but the canvas with "Put the Boots to Hunger and Coul Angus " made a respectable showing. Besides being a generous contribution by James it was also an another positive event for Angus promotion! James Arnott has an angus herd in Scotland as well as a small herd at Belvin Angus.

e Western Beef Development Centre begins weighing production systems impact on beef quality Nobody knows all of what John Termuende saw when he surveyed his three sections of land from the cupola of the round barn he built east of Lanigan, Saskatchewan, a hundred years ago. But it may have been a vantage point for a future where his 1,900 acres would remain intact as a tool for agricultural science to use for improving beef cattle. That’s what came to pass when the family gave it to the University of Saskatchewan in 1974, forever dedicated to mixed farming, beef and forage research. It operated as a University/government/producer research farm for two decades before incorporation as the Western Beef Development Centre (WBDC) in 1996. Ten years later it became a division of Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI), and made a few other changes.

WBDC heritage goes back to the pioneers, but the cow herd and research they channel is as current as today. Part of being current is the ability to conduct genetic research on the breed of cattle with greatest influence in the area. That’s why the Centre’s advisory committee decided in 2006 to disperse its herd of 300 or more mixed commercial cows and restock. “We purchased purebred Angus cattle from about a dozen different breeders around Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta,” says Paul Jefferson, vice president of operations. “The purpose of this new herd was to allow us to have a purebred herd and to do some genetics research as well as our production, grazing and nutrition research.”

Joint funding for the new herd came from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture. The stock were mostly bred heifers and younger cows, selected from the “average” of several leading herds in order to get a good representation of the breed locally. “Angus cattle were kind of a no brainer to use because out of the five important breeds in Canada, they would be one of the more popular,” explains Dr. Bart Lardner, senior research scientist with the Centre. “If we would’ve gone to a lesser breed, we would not be representative of the western Canadian beef cattle industry. We don’t have to justify it very often.”

The Western Beef Development Centre (WBDC) is a division of the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) that plays a unique and vital role in the development of the Western Canadian cattle industry. As a link between "the lab and the land", WBDC communicates directly with the research community and the cattle industry. Practical and applicable research is used to provide technologies that enable producers to become increasingly competitive in today's marketplace.

The herd currently includes about 370 black Angus and Angus-influence females. Though most are purebred, the Centre sells all cattle as commercials as to not compete with producer-owned registered purebred operations. “We’re really an applied beef research facility,” says Lardner, who is also an adjunct professor of animal and poultry science at the University of Saskatchewan. “So the results of what we do can hopefully be integrated by the producers as soon as possible. A lot of the work we do is in some capacity supported by the industry.” Much of the research being conducted at the Centre is in grazing and feeding techniques, particularly those that can help producers lower their costs or reach desired gains in their cattle. Jefferson lists winter feeding systems such as bale grazing, swath grazing and crop-residue feeding as focus areas. “Producers ask us, ‘If I go to this lower cost feeding system, am I going to affect the performance of the calves?’” Jefferson says. “The cow-calf industry is about more than just selling calves. There’s more interest now in knowing performance all the way through the system.” That includes beef quality on the product side.

Round Barn at Termuende Ranch

Recently, feeding trails have expanded to follow calves through to slaughter. A project last fall looked at 120 steer calves that grazed standing corn over the winter compared to a group that swath-grazed barley. All calves were sent to the University of Saskatchewan feedlot for finishing, and carcass data will be compared after slaughter in late summer. Jefferson says this project, funded by the province’s Agriculture Development Fund and Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency, will be a great opportunity to look at the whole system and use data “to make more improvements on the feeding end.” “We're interested in whether or not these different forage programs affect the carcass grade, yield and marbling of these cattle not only in the background phase but all the way to the feedlot finish phase,” Lardner says. He notes the decision to go after this knowledge, much like the one to switch to Angus cows, was largely based on deliberations of an advisory committee. Made up of one-quarter academia and three-quarters producers or industry group representatives, the committee meets biannually. Lately the group has taken note of apparent increases in the price of grains. “I believe forages are going to be more important going forward,” says Lardner. “It’s all about input cost, cost of production, cost of gain and

feed-cost per cow per day—we need to find ways to displace some of the $8 corn and $4 barley with an adequate type forage or roughage in the diet of that ruminant.” His research has centered on finding ways to feed ruminants at a lower cost through more extensive backgrounding, while still maintaining a high-quality carcass. “If we in Canada can say that our beef is not simply commodity beef but it’s superior quality beef that’s aged and marbled for a unique eating experience, then we’re ahead of the game,” Lardner says. “With our research, if we can show alternative management systems utilizing opportunity feeds as well as roughages, and use that animal in our short-summer, long-winter environment, we will continue to produce quality calves that will perform in the feedlot and produce quality grades.” The pioneer spirit never dies. It just shifts priorities to keep up with the new frontier.

Prairie Growers Face Volunteer Canola Challenges

Many Western growers are facing mounting issues with volunteer canola. Presenting a grower with many of the same challenges associated with traditional weeds, volunteer canola competes for light, water and nutrients and can also introduce unwanted traits and oil profile. A second annual Ipsos poll by BASF Canada reveals 54 per cent of growers in Saskatchewan, 53 per cent in Manitoba, and 43 per cent in Alberta report that canola volunteers are becoming more difficult to manage. Prairie growers have been facing volunteer canola problems for years, but soon canola companies will be offering varieties with two herbicide-tolerant traits built in. Although stacked herbicide-resistant traits reduce the threat of other glyphosate-resistant weeds

such as kochia, they increase the chance of stacked volunteer canola — canola that contains two herbicide-tolerant traits. However, when it comes to managing stacked volunteers, the management principles of volunteer canola require even more planning and attention to herbicide rotations. Minimizing volunteer canola needs to be a long-term plan. While most of the seed in the seed bank is eliminated after two years, it’s important that growers plan follow crops to reduce the chance of volunteers occurring and apply herbicides at the two- to four-leaf stage before volunteers have a chance to put serious pressure on the crop. Using a combination of best practices, growers can control volunteers and maximize their yield potential. Planning follow crops, maintaining accurate planting records of past crop rotations, and selecting proper herbicide applications help reduce the chance of volunteer crops occurring in a field. “Rotating crops and chemical systems not only decreases the chance of volunteers, they also manage disease and improve the overall health of the soil,” says

Herd Reference 2013*

Harley House, Brand Manager for Clearfield Crops, BASF Canada. Starting off with a Clearfield canola product such as Ares is an excellent way to control volunteer canola from other systems. Ares controls glyphosate-tolerant (Roundup Ready) and glufosinate (Liberty InVigor) canola volunteers and has residual activity for control of tough, shallow, germinating seeds without compromising seeding the following year. When it comes to controlling volunteer canola, grower Keith Nachtegaele from North Battleford, Saskatchewan understands the importance of a timely herbicide application and crop rotations. “I think it will be a real sustainability issue for the farmers to rotate their herbicide groups around their canola. Growers really have to be diligent in moving their groups around and changing their crops from one to the other,” says Nachtegaele. “BASF has been helping us with our rotational issues with the products they’ve been bringing out. They have a good variety of fungicides and herbicides to address our rotation issues.” Without appropriate crop rotations and herbicide applications, volunteer issues arise. Following best practices, including a well-timed herbicide application, will control volunteer canola and lead to better crop quality and yield. © 2013 BASF Canada Inc.

Research Stations Closing

Forage and pasture research seems to have taken a disproportionate hit in recently announced research program cuts by Agriculture Canada, say some involved in forage and grazing. The department announced plans to close the Grassland Applied Technology Centre in Kamloops, B.C., close the research facilities at One Four and Stavely, Alta., transfer beef grazing systems work from Brandon to Lacombe, Alta., and consolidate rangeland activity research in Swift Current, Sask. Nine former Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration offices that provided additional support for range and grassland will also close. “It seems as though there’s a bit of a target that’s going toward range and forage research, in the fact that it’s the facilities at Stavely, Onefour and Kamloops all had that focus,” said Alberta Forage Industry Network president Don McLennan. He said valuable research into forage, rangeland management and livestock genetics has been done at all three locations, although Stavely and Onefour may have been underused in recent years because of earlier staff reductions. Rich Smith, executive director of Alberta Beef Producers, concurred. “Stavely and Onefour were not being used to their full potential as stations, so it’s hard for us to … suggest that they needed to stay,” said Smith. “That’s another symptom of a situation where you have a declining number of researchers, which then leads you to having less work being done at a station,

which then you see the station isn’t being used to its full potential.” Smith said forage and grasslands research has been neglected for some time, but beef research at Lacombe is serving beef producers well. “Having a position come from Brandon to Lacombe to work on forages will be a benefit for us,” Smith said. Up to 700 jobs will be lost in Agriculture Canada across the country, and McLennan said that means staffing for research projects will continue to be an issue. “They still need to maintain a staff and a research budget and program to go forward,” he said. “If (this is) a step in the process, one step where they shut some stations down and then not support the research in the existing ones that are left, so that there’s another step down the road where they’ll make another cut, that’s a problem.” Doug Wray of the Canadian Forage and Grasslands Association said his group sent a letter to federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz several months ago expressing concern about forage research funding and succession planning for researchers. Wray said the long-term nature of forage research and lower potential profits relative to cereals research makes it less attractive for private partnership research agreements. “In the pasture game, particularly, and a lot of hay acres too, are lower input dynamics, so there isn’t the opportunity for somebody to make a dollar on it.”

In contrast, private companies have developed vast research networks for cereals, canola, corn and other crops, he added. “It perhaps falls to the government to get involved a little more on (the forage and grassland) side,” he said. “We think there’s a public benefit from forage and grasslands, in terms of environmental goods and services, biodiversity, clean air, clean water, less erosion, all those kinds of things, that maybe warrants public investment in their management.” Wray said the beef industry realizes the importance of forage and grasslands research and has increased its funding for it. As well, there is merit in the idea of concentrating resources at one location, such as Swift Current, rather than understaffing facilities over a wider area. However, significant geographical differences could affect the value of research. Wray said vision is needed in forage and grassland research, and that does not appear to be the current federal focus. “You can’t shut down a research station for five years and then start it up again. There’s a long-term continuity thing there,” he said. “Governments are kind of guilty of chasing the latest rabbit that runs by, and short-term thinking, and we’re encouraging them to take the longer view on this one and recognize the value of just staying with it, being patient and persistent, and getting good people in place.”

First established in 1927 as the Dominion Range Experiment Station, Manyberries, the Onefour Research Farm is primarily provincial land under long term lease for research purposes to the federal government. Onefour encompasses about 17,000 ha within the Dry Mixedgrass Natural Subregion of the Grassland Natural Region.

Conservation Attributes * Approximately 70% (12,000 ha) of Onefour is native grassland * Located within the Wild Horse Plain ecodistrict which supports the highest remaining proportion of natural cover in the Prairie Ecoregion in Canada * Supports one of the highest densities of rare species occurrences in the Prairie Ecoregion

* High value to endemic grassland songbirds as breeding habitat * High value for at least 23 federally listed species at risk * A legacy of research dating back nearly a century directed at maintaining healthy native rangelands grazed by livestock * A portion of Onefour has protected area status as a Heritage Rangeland Natural Area

Closing the Onefour Research Farm is part of plans the federal government has announced. The current federal lease for the research farm operations does not expire for some time, however the federal government

may choose to surrender the lease back to the province of Alberta at any time. AWA believes the announcement, the time we have before the lease expires and the pending South Saskatchewan

Regional Plan provide both threats and opportunities for conservation of this vastly important native prairie grassland.

The opportunity exists to ensure Onefour receives protected area status whether it ends up under federal or provincial management. Under the existing lease arrangement with the Federal Government, designating this area as a National Wildlife Area makes sense. Vitally needed prairie research could continue. In addition, grazing

could continue providing an opportunity for local ranchers. The existing research and livestock facilities would continue to be used. The already designated heritage rangelands adjacent to the research farm would facilitate the transition of the research farm lands to protection under the Alberta Government. If Alberta will designate and

protect the area, co-management much like the Milk River Management Committee, by ranchers, government, grazing academics, and conservationists would succeed based on experiences in other rangelands in this part of Alberta.

CBBC Announces New Executive Director

Canadian Beef Breeds Council announced today that Michael Latimer will be their new Executive Director. Latimer brings an extensive range of experience in the beef cattle industry including roles

in brand marketing and management. He leaves his current position as General Manager of the Canadian Angus Association having participated in a number of breed promotional activities including strategic planning sessions for the Canadian Beef Breeds Council. "We are delighted with this addition to the Executive Director role of CBBC and look forward to working with Michael," says President David Bolduc. "Our focus for Canada's purebred beef cattle producers continues with ongoing projects such as international market development through the Canadian Cattlemen Market Development Council and the Legacy Program, CBBC-BIXS value chain system and with the view to promoting the purebred sector both domestically as well as internationally." Michael is a fifth-generation purebred cattle producer. After graduation from the University of Alberta, he worked as a partner with Remitall Cattle Company of Olds, Alberta. He served as President of the Olds Agricultural Society and has also served as a

judge and a mentor in the Cattlemen's Young Leaders Development Program. The Canadian Beef Breeds Council (CBBC) represents, supports and promotes the Canadian purebred beef cattle industry.Their members include national breed associations that collectively represent more than 10,000 producers of purebred beef breeding stock. Associate CBBC members are exporters and sector service providers. "As disappointing as it is for Canada's largest beef breed Association to lose a valued staff member like Michael, he's staying very much involved in our sector and moving into a stronger leadership position that will serve all breeds including Angus," says Canadian Angus Association CEO Rob Smith. "Michael's four years with the Association have been marked by program growth and his tremendous dedication to serving Canada's Angus fraternity. He moves forward with the thanks of a grateful Angus industry supporting him in his new challenge."

“We continue to grow our sales of live cattle and frozen genetics into the United States, and we continue to see more opportunity in the U.S. market specifically. With this in mind, we felt it would be important to have consistent representation from Blairs.Ag on the ground to attend livestock shows and fairs, purebred and commercial sales, association events, herd tours and the many junior events around the United States and in key international markets”, stated Kevin Blair. Kent McCune of Dallas, Texas is a graduate of K-State University and has spent most of his life working in the U.S. livestock industry as a herd manager or livestock consultant for many leading breeding stock operations in the United States. In recent years, Kent has spent considerable time consulting at livestock shows and sales across Canada, and has gotten the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with many Canadian seedstock

producers. “Kent’s extensive network of people and knowledge of the North American livestock industry makes him a great fit for providing insight and direction into our genetics program and for ultimately growing sales of Blairs.Ag genetics. We look forward to the expertise he can provide to our business”, said Kevin. One of Kent’s first assignments will be to represent Blairs.Ag Cattle Co. at the Palermo Agriculture Show in Argentina. Blairs.Ag Cattle Company of Lanigan, Saskatchewan is focused on the production of Red and Black Angus cattle that can perform consistently from pasture to plate. The herd includes over 450 purebred Angus females, 50 purebred Hereford cows and over 250 recipient females for their extensive embryo transfer program.

Blairs.Ag Cattle Company Announces Director of International Marketing

Blairs.Ag Cattle Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Kent McCune as Director of International Marketing effective immediately. Kent will be based near Dallas, Texas and will lead the sales and marketing efforts for Blair’s in the United States and in other international areas of opportunity.

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

Well, hasn’t this been quite the spring or shall we say extended winter! With lots of moisture throughout the province, though be it in the form of snow, it has pushed back

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

Saskatchewan Angus Association Message

Greetings from Saskatchewan! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer months. From reports around our province this summer things look very good with good hay crops and fantastic grain crops progressing well, and seems to be lots of grass in the pastures. Lets hope everything continues to come together for the rest of the summer. Well since my last report Shelly and I had the opportunity to attend the Canadian Angus

Association's annual convention in early June which was held in Guelph Ontario and what a great event it was, hats off to the Ontario Association and the CAA staff for putting on a first class, fun and informative convention. We really enjoyed the tours and the Rancher Endorsed Day, great speakers and a very interesting panel discussion. All this has firmly put the pressure on for us here in Saskatchewan to perform as we will be hosting this event in early June in 2014 so please take this as one of may invitations to experience the Annual convention, in the great city of Moose Jaw we would love to have you join us! Some of the things happening within the province this summer - Our summer Junior & Gold Show was held in Prince Albert late July/early August in conjunction with their fair. Congratulations to all those who exhibited cattle there. Then August 29 & 30 Saskatchewan Angus in conjunction with the Canadian Red Angus Promotion Society and some breeders in the south east corner of our province will be hosting a tour and field day. We hope you can find the time to

join us for this event as it promises to be allot of fun with the opportunity to view some cattle and partake in some Angus fun and fellowship in the beautiful south east corner. (I might be biased there). For the tour details call myself at 306-739-28205 or Belinda Wagner in the Saskatchewan office. I should also mention we are starting to put together a new breeders directory to be ready for the Convention next spring so don't miss out on this great opportunity to have your farm listed and send in your info as soon as possible. Well hopefully you continue to have a great summer and fall and if we don't see you before maybe we will see you at Agribition in November for one of the greatest agricultural shows in the nation!

Well, 2013 has sure turned out to be one of the most challenging haying seasons in recent memory in Manitoba along with the rest of the Prairie Provinces. Hopefully everybody is getting things wrapped up and ready to move on to silage season. Here in Manitoba we just had our 2nd Field Day combined with our summer gold show in the pen format, with only Junior Members showing with halters. It is proving to be a popular format with more cattle showing up this year including some members who brought out cattle for the first time. Fall sale season will soon be upon us along with the show season and hope everybody has a successful one. Also the fall calf run will be starting soon and indications according to the experts prices should be strong. Here’s hoping they are right.

Next up in Manitoba is our fall gold show at the Manitoba Livestock Expo on Friday, November 1, 2013 in Brandon. Following that is the 25th annual Keystone Classic sale in Brandon on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at the Keystone Center. This sale continues to be a great opportunity to acquire top Black and Red genetics from breeders in Manitoba and Eastern Saskatchewan. I wish everyone success with their fall sales both commercial and purebred and hope to see you out on the road this fall. Dallas Johnston President, Manitoba Angus Association

Respectfully submitted, Dale Easton President, Saskatchewan Angus Association

Quebec Angus Association Message

It certainly has been a hot and humid summer in Quebec and earlier in the season we did not think we were going to get any good haying weather but it has been full steam ahead for the past few weeks with many bales of good hay brought in. The QAA had their picnic at my farm on July 11th and there was an excellent turnout of almost 300 cattlemen. It fell on

the second day of good hay weather after a long wet spell and several guests made quick appearances and “dined and dashed” to get back to the fields. There were commercial exhibitors, a MAPAQ demonstration, live country and western music, great Angus burgers and award presentations. Brian Good attended on behalf of the Canadian Angus Association and gave an excellent speech. Awards were presented to Ferme Ghislain Breton of Abitibi for Quebec Commercial Cattleman of the year and to Mario Comtois as Quebec Angus Marketer of the Year. Many door prizes were donated by the commercial attendees. The commercial exhibitors also donated cash and door prizes for the junior show at Expo Boeuf in October. We are currently trying to obtain convenient time slots from Expo Boeuf for industry experts to demonstrate fitting, grooming, clipping, photography and bovine nutrition to the juniors. We will be giving numerous prizes at the junior show this year and hope to have a good turnout.

We are having two Gold Shows in Quebec this year: Brome Fair on Labour Day weekend and Expo Boeuf on Thanksgiving weekend. We would like to thank the many exhibitors at the Gold Shows from Quebec and those that travel a long distance to participate from both Ontario and the Maritimes. They do an excellent job of showcasing the Angus Breed. Wayne Gallup, the Canadian Angus Fieldman for Quebec has arranged five Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed feeder calf sales in Quebec this Fall and Winter. These sales certainly have shown how popular Green Tagged cattle are as they consistently receive higher prices We are having a Quebec Angus Female Sale on September 28th at Brome Fairgrounds. We have selected cattle for the sale and are pleased to report that we have many top quality sale entries. We look forward to seeing you all there. John Donaldson President, Quebec Angus Association

Angus heifers being shown; and lots of friends getting reacquainted. We were pleased to welcome our new Canadian Association president-Kevin Blair, CEO-Rob Smith and Junior Ambassador Stacey Jo Domolewski to the East. Sarah Manthorne had the Champion purebred heifer, and Justin Ford had the Reserve Champion. The first Gold Show of the season will be held in Charlottetown, PEI at Old Home Week on August 15 and 16. With 60 head of Angus cattle shown last summer-hopefully this year’s show will be even bigger. Wayne Gallup (Canadian Angus Eastern Field man) will be visiting a few Maritime commercial herds before and during the Charlottetown show. Next will be New Brunswick’s Gold Show being held in Sussex on September 20 to 22 at Beef Expo. Another great display of Angus cattle will be present, and a great junior show as well. Nova Scotia’s Gold Show will be held again this year in Halifax at Maritime Fall Fair

on October 5 and 6. There are always lots of great junior activities at this event. On behalf of the Maritime Board of Directors and members we would like to congratulate Patrick Holland from PEI, and all other juniors for being chosen to go to the World Angus Forum in New Zealand this fall to represent Canadian Angus. The 15th Annual “Angus in Action” sale will be held this fall in Nappan, NS on October 26, so if you are looking for a great 4-H prospect heifer, a bred yearling, or a nice cow-calf pair come on down to Nappan and have your pick of some of the best Angus genetics in the Maritimes. As always make sure you tag your calves with Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Green Tags and remember to show your Angus pride with the use of these tags in your cattle. Trevor F. Welch President - Maritime Angus Association

Maritime Angus Association Message

Greetings from the East Coast. As haying season should be winding up, many purebred and 4-H shows are going on throughout the Maritimes. Angus cattle are certainly well represented and doing well. The Maritime Angus Field day held June 14-15, in Truro Nova Scotia was a great success, with lots of
