It has been a rather turbulent time in the cattle business in the past few months. Feeder calf prices have softened significantly, one of the larger feedlots in Alberta has suspended feeding operations. However all is not doom and gloom. If we go past the numbers that feeder calves have brought in the last couple years, calf prices are not terrible. It is hard to do that, however it seems most people I talk to agree the high price were not sustainable. Although we started out dry in June, there has been a great amount of rain fall during the summer.

There are areas that didn’t cut hay until late August and into September. That is rather frustrating but feedstuffs are good supply. Both hay and feed grain prices are down so wintering cattle for those purchasing feed will be more moderate. Seems like there really isn’t a ‘normal’ year weather wise anymore.

As busy as everyone is these days, don’t forget to stay in contact with your bull buyers. Give them a call, touch base on how their bulls are working, find out how their calves sold. It is keeps the line of communication open, so that when it comes time for bull sales you are more aware of their needs.

Producers are sometimes the last to be consulted on sustainability. The good news is Canadian farmers and ranchers that raise cattle are, for the most part, operating in a sustainable and responsible manner. Our industry was able to assist McDonald’s in delivering on a global commitment they made several years ago to begin sourcing their beef from verified sustainable operations in 2016. It will not end here, they plan to continue on this path globally. As producers we need to understand that McDonald’s Canada is the largest purchaser of Canadian beef, 67 million pounds annually, and is committed to sourcing Canadian beef – they are serious when they say “Not without Canadian Farmers”. Of the $1 billion they spend on food for their Canadian restaurants 85 percent is purchased from suppliers in Canada. The Canadian beef industry was fortunate to have McDonald’s choose our country for the Verified Sustainable Beef Pilot Project. Prior to starting, their project management team (PMT) went through 150+ versions of the indicators that would demonstrate sustainability, ultimately arriving at 36 indicators that looked at what was good for people, planet and animals. Then the PMT went looking for producers that would put up their hands to be part of the pilot project, which meant having a group come to your farm, ranch or feedlot and ask you about your production practices, the care of your animals, the stewardship of your land, environmental awareness, your employment practices, family and community involvement. There was no pass or fail but a scoring system from one to five, with the average being three. There were minimum acceptable levels for each indicator which could create a barrier to entry in the pilot project. The indicators used were derived from the Global Roundtable for Sustainable

Beef and adjusted to suit Canada’s environment, animals, people and practices, as each global geographic area has different challenges. How can sustainability be achieved in a way that makes business sense? Some of the key statements around sustainability that stick in my mind would be “doing more with less”, “constant improvement”, “transparency in the value chain” and “willingness to collaborate”. The challenge is identifying, developing, and validating metrics to measure progress across the three global pillars of sustainability: social, environmental, and financial. Not long ago the Irish Food Board brought together hundreds of sustainability professionals to discuss ways to increase production and consumption of food and drink, sustainably. The Global Sustainability Forum dealt with complex topics such as harmonising metrics for measuring sustainability targets, the importance of collaboration, responsible sourcing, ethical supply chains, food waste, sustainable intensification, and even what sustainability in the food supply chain looks like. Today there are over 7 billion people with a vested interest in food on the planet and they don’t agree on much, especially not science. But one thing everyone at the forum agreed on was the importance of collaboration in order to achieve anything at all. BIXSco Inc. has always held collaboration as one of its core values. BIXSco Inc. has been a member of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) for a year now, and I have been part of the multi-stakeholder group discussions around the Canadian Beef Industry. It has given me the chance to meet sustainability managers from many of the largest retailers in Canada, sit with representatives from major restaurant chains and have

Herd Reference 2016 *

open and frank discussions with them. Even though I attend these meetings as a BIXS representative, my producer alter ego is never far away, which I believe has given me a unique perspective of the processes the CRSB has gone through creating indicators unique to Canada, that are acceptable to our customers – the retailers and restauranteurs. Every step along the way has included representatives from each part of the production chain – cow/calf and feedlot, as well as the value chain. What has become apparent is the need for collaboration in order to avoid the cost of sustainable practices falling solely on cattle producers, and to help consumers buy ethically-which means what they are purchasing was raised on an operation that was not harmful to the planet and the animals were treated well, while being safe for their families to eat. Retailers need to reassure their customers that they source with integrity. Consumers don’t want to decipher confusing labeling, they want proof points ... At the moment it’s too difficult for them to understand because of the plethora of marketing initiatives and programs; and misalignment between them. The CRSB members want a supply chain that’s fit for the future and works in a way that reduces the difficulty for busy farmers, ranchers and feedlot owners to participate.

The farmers and ranchers feel they are often the last to be consulted on sustainability and worry about the strain or demand on them to do more without getting more. We all must be part of the sustainability conversation but it must be economically sustainable as well. The primary producer must get a fair price for the product. This topic has been brought up many times in discussions at the CRSB meetings. I have served as an industry adviser to the Verification committee, which is a sizable group of stakeholders (producer groups and producers included), which is in the process of defining how the industry will verify or validate the sustainability practices, as defined by the indicators that have gone through the public comment periods and been agreed upon. So just how can the supply chain be more sustainable without one partner feeling they are shouldering the heaviest burden? Collaboration and transparency are key to sustainability, it has to benefit the entire chain right down to the consumer. We need to get all parties around the table, including policymakers to cement agreements. This is what BIXS has been working towards for the last 18 months signing collaborative agreements with industry stakeholders, most notable of which is the master agreement with Cargill, while

continuing negotiations with other packers. BIXS was the technology that delivered the chain of custody for the McDonald’s Verified Sustainable Beef pilot project – tracking the animals/beef through verified sustainable operations “from birth to burger”, to quote Jeffery Fitzpatrick Stillwell, Sustainability Manager with McDonald’s Canada. And yes, in case you were wondering, Cargill and JBS, as well as the patty plant were subjected to a sustainability assessment as well as the farms, ranches and feedlots in the pilot project. One key to intensifying sustainability was knowledge intensification, and in order for that to happen there has to be benefits for the producer. We know you all want carcass data, that’s a simple fact, and we continue to work towards agreements that will allow that information to flow. But just as BIXS protects the producers’ privacy, until we get another signed agreement with a major packer, we cannot allow Cargill’s information into the system as their privacy would be compromised. BIXS promises privacy and anonymity to all participants, allowing the data to flow as permitted. We are well down the negotiating path with several additional packers so stay tuned.

More importantly, my comment to producers is this, “perhaps it is wise to consider that if we participate in this sustainability initiative, in years to come, we will have consumers that want to purchase and eat our product.” Per capita beef consumption dropped in Canada in 2015, but there are countries in the world where beef consumption is rising on a per capita basis. China would be one of those countries, but they are demanding verification and validation of production practices in the beef value chain. With tools like BIXS and CLTS (Canadian Livestock Traceability System), and RFID tags we have everything necessary to deliver verification and validation in the beef production chain. Wrap this up with verified sustainability practices and we have a bright future in the Canadian beef industry, with the possibility of being able to demand prices higher than those currently being paid for commodity beef on the world market.

A Message to Producers - From Your Raw Data Brought to you by BIXS Hello, Nice to meet you. We’re the raw data most of you collect regularly. We’re the random numbers about your cattle and how you raise them. And mostly we’re lying here, trapped in your PCs and smartphones, doing nothing at all. Unless we’re lucky enough to get analyzed and shared with a small group of stock growers or academics, we don’t get out much. While we’re being shared in pockets, the current system is too fragmented to get us where we need to be. It’s so frustrating being stored away when we could be out there doing something big. That’s why we REALLY want to get out of here. If we could travel to other parts of the supply chain, can you imagine what we could do to help the whole industry? We could help make it even more profitable and competitive. To do that, we need to get found— by stakeholders, feedlot operators, packers and retailers—and get shared, up and downstream. Then we would have an opportunity to get analyzed and used to make the industry better. Then there’s no telling how valuable we would become! All we need is someone who can introduce us to the rest of the industry, giving us a chance to get in the right people’s hands. Once everyone in the chain meets us, we just know they’ll want to introduce us to others—because connectivity is the key to industry profit and sustainability.

BIXS is the answer to our prayers You’re a typical Canadian cattle producer, right? You do all the right things. You care for your cattle ethically and humanely, around the clock, every day of the week. You detail the history of care until your animals go to auction. Other than analyze your own data, you can’t do much more with the numbers you collect. Because data doesn’t flow up and down the system, bad things happen. (Think Earl’s) Anyway, we’ve heard that BIXS is the answer to our prayers. BIXS is a way to transfer raw data like us to others. BIXS establishes the relationships that let us get found. Data-sharing through the BIXS platform works when people like you input data and let others along the chain of custody find it. Then others can provide supplemental data about their production practices while in their custody. If the industry could link the slaughter animals with where they came from and how they were treated, everyone would get a nice picture of each animal’s life. Retailers could understand and verify attributes they desire in their beef. You would know which bulls did better and which feedlots did better. BIXS facilitates this exchange of data, enabling relationships that allow data like us to be shared. BIXS provides the data, our partners analyze it The next question is how do you use it? It’s all well and good to have data transfer, but if there’s no one who can analyze it….we lose our value.

Herd Reference 2016 *

That’s why BIXS is all about partnerships. It partnered with McDonald’s on the Verified Sustainable Beef (VSB) pilot project. It’s partnering with packers to ensure that producers can access carcass data. It’s finding ways to work with the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) for simpler administration processes. It is creating integration with Verified Beef Production Plus data management system (CORS) to attach VBP status to not just operations but to specific animals. It’s partnering with service providers to allow for better analytics. And now it’s partnering with the Canadian Beef Improvement Network (CBIN) to bring all the breed associations together to enhance analytics and improve the genetic merit of the Canadian beef herd. That improvement will go more quickly once the data flows smoothly and is analyzed properly. BIXS complements and facilitates the various industry improvement initiatives that are already out there. And it’s the best way to help us realize our dream of breaking free from your computer so we can help the whole industry. Plus, data like us can help everyone see the pride you take in your work. You hold the key to unlocking our value. What are you waiting for? You can sign up for BIXS today, by going to ! Now will you please open your Windows and get us the hell out of here?!?

Plan Beef Herd Genetics on Consumer Desires By Hannah Johlman, Industry Information Intern, Certified Angus Beef LLC Mark McCully

Cattlemen have focused on quality from the beginning. Their success at delivering cattle that perform for the next owner kept them in business through market ups and downs. The approach seems to work, but can it keep working in an era of relatively higher beef prices? Mark McCully, vice president of production for the Certified Angus Beef ® brand (CAB®), challenged producers at the inaugural Canadian Beef Industry Conference to consider looking at their business in reverse. “We know genetics are important,” he said. “We know health management is important at the ranch and at the feedyard – but they’re also critically important to consumer satisfaction, which ultimately drives demand for that product.” And that, he said, brings profitability to the whole system. “Let’s start with the consumer and work our way backwards,” McCully said in the August 11 presentation in Calgary, Alta. “That’s how we will most effectively hit the consumer target.” Showing a perfectly grilled and plated steak, he encouraged ranchers and feedyard operators to evaluate how their management decisions affect the end product. He reminded everyone that marbling is the basis of quality grading systems and highly correlated to consumer satisfaction.

“Adding that takes nothing away from cow herd performance but adds much to the value of the end product,” he said. Improved marbling starts with genetics, as carcass traits are highly heritable. McCully shared data from the USDA Meat Animal Research Center that shows Angus cattle surpass all other breeds in ability to marble, even though there is much variation within all breeds. That’s why producers use expected progeny differences (EPDs) as comparison tools, he said, noting recommendations in CAB’s “Best Practices Manual” available online. DNA-based tools can also help select heifers with increased marbling potential. Once calves are born, beef quality is maximized with proper care. “It boils down to what those things are that impact marbling,” McCully said. “Health and management, nutrition and creep feeding in particular. Know and be aware that the nutritional management of the calf while he’s still on the cow can affect weaning, and that calf’s marbling ability.” A slide of a steer chasing men over a cliff demonstrated the importance of selecting for docility. “We all know disposition is important from the family aspect,” McCully said. “They’re also hard to deal with, they’re hard on equipment and they produce a low-quality calf in the end.” He encouraged producers to establish benchmarks and measure progress, keeping records even after the sale. The market price shifts have more ranchers looking at retained ownership through the feedyard phase, but if that’s not a possibility, McCully said there’s no reason to waste any of the hard work and planning that went into their cattle. “A feeder usually gets a set of cattle and knows almost nothing about them,” he said. “There’s no owner’s manual with that set of cattle.” Such cattle are often capable of better, but can be mismanaged in the feedyard, simply for lack of information. To prevent that disconnect, McCully

Herd Reference 2016 *

suggested ranchers and feeders work together. Those who sell should share health and genetic background, and those who buy should give feedback on performance and carcass merit. “Typically, with no background on the cattle, they are managed like the average,” he said. “What we should be doing in an efficient system is managing those cattle to their genetic ability. Do we take them a little bit farther, to maximize their marbling? Or at what point are we just wasting feed on those cattle that don’t have the ability to hit a high-quality target.” Missed opportunities only detract from profitability throughout the system. Beyond marbling, McCully discussed options to improve beef tenderness “While historically we’ve dealt with the issue through aging and other post-mortem techniques, identifying and eliminating those problem genetics should be a goal for cattlemen,” he said, noting the ability to measure and select for tenderness will improve with new technology. Finally, McCully suggested being mindful of the size of cattle. “We do get a lot of questions about carcass size and ribeye area,” he said. “Cattlemen need to think about ramifications as we look further down the chain.” Showing steaks cut from different size ribeyes, he said, “The thinner steak from the bigger ribeye is probably harder to prepare to the perfect degree of doneness. Overcooking this steak jeopardizes the consumer’s experience. Not suggesting a switch to smaller animals, McCully simply said the concern calls for balance. “We have to have pounds for this to be a sustainable business. That’s ultimately what we’re selling,” he acknowledged. “All these things are important. But we have to make sure we’re not losing sight of the consumer’s eating satisfaction.”

Too Much Milk or Too Much Cow? by Larry Corah, Certified Angus Beef Larry Corah

It’s the expansion phase for the North American beef cow herd. For most farmers and ranchers, that means finding ways to increase the number of cows rather than the size of each. And of course, everybody’s talking about size – makes sense when you think about the escalating annual cost of keeping an average cow on the place. Many things power that escalator, but higher land cost per cow might be the top step. For years, anywhere in the U.S. the average land investment per cow was in the $2,500 to $3,000 range. Today, driven in part by the ethanol impact on grain and subsequent farmland prices, that cost is three or four times higher, according to Texas A&M economist Stan Bevers. Land cost per cow was recently noted in the range of $7,500 to $12,500. A bigger-than-average cow requires the upper-end cost. How big are typical commercial cows today? A decade ago, using USDA cull-cow harvest weights, Cargill nutritionist Brian McMurry examined the trend in Feedstuffs magazine. From 1975 to 2005, cow size increased by more than 300 lb., from 1,047 to 1,369. As you can see, that’s more than 30 lb. per year. In the past 10 years this author would suggest we’ve slowed the rate some, but surely added at least another 50 lb. to arrive at an average of more than 1400 lb.

Page 22

Angus World

So how much of an impact does cow size have on pasture needed per cow? Scientists at North Dakota State University reported on research where 50 cows weighing 1216 lb. each required 529 acres or 10.5 acres/cow. Meanwhile, 50 cows weighing 1,571 lb. would need 642 acres or 12.8 acres/cow. That’s 6.3% more pasture per 100 lb. of cow weight. Other research tells us a 100-lb. increase in cow size only nets 8 to 15 more pounds of weaned calf. What’s driving weights higher? That answer is easy. We have totally changed today’s beef cow. She calves easier, milks more, weans a bigger calf in fewer days and, for the most part, she’s a more functional cow. Clearly, she’s bigger; that’s the result of applied genetic selection for growth. Since most cows contain some Angus genetics, the

trend in that breed’s growth EPDs (expected progeny differences, see charts) helps explain the change over time. Like many other producers, Angus breeders were uneasy about the 30-lb. annual weight increases 20 years ago, so they used EPDs to moderate mature cow size while selecting for growth. You may think bigger cows are the big problem, but there’s more to consider, including some that you likely DID NOT KNOW: For one thing, big is not all bad, as the amount of beef per cow continues to grow. We’ve added an average of 5 lb. of carcass weight per year to the grain-fed progeny of those cows across 30 years.

Herd Reference 2016 *

During this summer’s Beef Improvement Federation meetings, Colorado State University geneticist Mark Enns said, “At the rate we’re going, by 2030 we will be selling 1,560-lb. steers as an average, which equates to a 975-lb. carcass.” Cow size gets all the attention because it’s pretty easy to track, but we really should be talking about milk production, which we have greatly increased in these cows. My geneticist friends see no end to selection for milk or growth in the near future. Dietary guidelines suggest a 100-lb. increase in cow size drives energy needs by 6% to 8%, which fits the North Dakota pasture example. But a 5-lb./day increase in milk production increases the TDN (total digestible nutrients) needed by 10%, and crude protein by another 13% to 15%. That says the level of milk production merits much more attention than it usually gets when selecting the perfect cow for each farm or ranch. Talk about it, do something about it, but don’t lose sight of the impact of any changes on consumer demand for beef. An excellent review recently published by Scott Greiner and Jason Smith at Virginia Tech helps put this in context. They conclude on the basis of all available research, that selection for marbling has no effect on birth weight, calving ease, age at puberty, heifer pregnancy, calving interval OR MATURE COW SIZE.

They do note a slightly positive correlation between marbling and milk production but point out that the size and variation in the Angus genetic database allow selection for more or less milk as dictated by forage resources available, with simultaneous and continued selection for marbling.

Well, as the summer draws to a close, we have enjoyed a rather wet one in our country.We made an abundance of feed and are still trying to put up more. The shows we have had to date have all been very successfull. IPE is over with the BC Angus AGM taking place there in Armstron and the BC Board is driving forward with a Pen Show in Prince George in January. I would like to congratulate all folks that hit the road this year promoting our breed t shows. It’s

Alberta Angus Association

I would like to thank the board for another year of support and for the work they have done for the membership throughout the year. Following last year’s AGM we have had another busy year promoting the breed and supporting the membership. Our fall started with the Olds’ Fall Classic, the first of our two Gold Shows. The attendance was great once again with our after show social providing great opportunity for comradery and socializing. We then moved into the second Gold Show held at Farmfair International. Farmfair saw a great set of cattle numbers and great attendance of the show with many breeders traveling from across the country to view the show and many viewing the show online across the country. AAA had the opportunity to sponsor a $1000 bull credit to the Commercial Pen Show where we have become an industry leader in our support of the commercial breeders who exhibit at these events. We believe that our support should not only be to the commercial breeders using Angus genetics but all breeders in the thought that being involved with our breed will continue to prove its rewards.

Our first task that came in the winter was the Medicine Hat Pen Show where we saw record attendance in cattle numbers and people. Here we had our booth to provide information and were able to award two $500 bull credits to the Pen of Open Commercial Heifers and Pen of Bred Commercial Heifer Champions. We also took part in the Steak Fry and would like to thank all the breeders that helped with the event. The new year saw us at the Canadian Bull Congress with our booth and to take part in the Steak Challenge that continues to gain popularity in each passing year. We were able to secure steak sponsorship from CAB in in the form of steaks to be grilled for the challenge. We were also fortunate to have the assistance from a local chef from Camrose that serves CAB beef in her restaurant to take part in the challenge. We felt this was a great way to further add face to the product that we are all striving to produce. We were awarded the Big Valley Jamboree passes and we chose to give them to the AJAA to use as a fundraiser. Once again we were able to win the challenge and felt great pride in showing how excellent our product is. Country Roads Beef Congress in Oyen was to follow. If you have not been to Oyen, it is a great show to see and interact with producers. We were able to represent the members with our booth as well as take part once again in the steak fry there. Later on in the New Year were were approached to sponsor the Chinook Junior Show, Holden Junior Show, and the UFA Country Classic. We felt this would be a great opportunity for further support Juniors and would allow us to spread our sponsorship dollars around to different venues across the province. We also revamped our 4-H awards from t-shirts to toques with our logo

present. We felt this would provide even more awareness as the toques can be worn and seen more readily. They were very well received by all juniors that received them. One of the strongest supported and well received initiatives of the year was awards our Commercial Cattlemen’s Draw where commercial cattlemen can enter to win $1000 Bull or Female Sale Credit. This year we made the draw on Facebook Live video feed with the winner being David Glasier, Lake Thelma Farms Ltd. of Coronation, AB. Please print the form off of the website and have it available to your customers to send in to the office. August brought us to our Annual Meeting where we welcomed new board members Robert Geis (AJAA), Blake Morton,Tiffany Richmond, David Schneider, and Brett Wildman. Thank you to retiring directors Megan Bond, Darlene Glessman, Trish Henderson, Kathy Matejka, and Courtney Stamm for your service to the AAA. The AGM this year was held in conjunction with the Canadian Beef Industry Conference in Calgary, AB. It was nice to have some new faces at the meeting by hosting it in conjunction with such a great event! We were able to host our Hall of Fame banquet over the lunch hour as well where we awarded Breed Builders Bill & Hjordis Armitage of Angus Acres to the Hall of Fame as well as the Spady Family as Contemporary Breeders. The Purebred Breeders of the Year went to Shiloh Cattle Company – Blake Morton & Darcy Olesky of Hand Hills, AB with the Commercial Breeders of the Year going to Pakowki Ranching Ltd. Co., of Medicine Hat, AB. I look forward to seeing you this fall at our Gold Shows at Olds Fall Classic, September 30-October 2 and Farmfair International in Edmonton November 9-13.

Saskatchewan Angus Association

Summer has come to a close and we wish everyone a great fall as we prepare to finish the long list of jobs that need to be done before the snow flies. Fall is always a great time to attend one of the many Angus events that will be taking place. Last spring for the first time we hosted a Breeder Information Session the evening prior to our board meeting. We had an excellent turn out of young and old breeders that thoroughly enjoyed our three speakers. Everyone was able to take away some valuable information about agriculture advocacy and customer service. The evening was capped off with a very candid

and entertaining presentation by Rod Pedersen, the voice of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Our next session will be September 20 at the Bear Claw Casino, White Bear, SK and I hope many are able to take it in. We feel that there is great value for our membership in these events and will continue to look at hosting more of them in the future. The board also feels that there is value in having these sessions hosted in different areas around the province. If you are interested in attending or hosting one of these events please contact the office. We are willing to examine any proposal from our membership if they would like to host a similar event in their area. Our summer tour was held August 8th & 9th in the Moose Jaw area. Attendance grows every year and it is a perfect time to see some great Angus cattle and network and socialize with your fellow breeders. The weather actually cooperated pretty well over the two days and we enjoyed some great hospitality, many thanks to our hosts. Our mentorship program has proven to be a very valuable addition to the programs we offer. The five mentees have attended a variety of events over the past year and it has been very rewarding to watch these enthusiastic breeders learn and grow through the program. We have a new group of mentees who are starting the program this fall. We were very happy to see

Well as we head into fall, the weather challenges continue, but farmers are resilient and the work will eventually get done! We had two very successful events during the summer. The Summer Gold Show at Harding and the MAA Summer Farm Tour. Both events were well attended, and we were pleased to have our new CAA Director of

increased interest in the program and a greater number of applications. The annual Gold & Junior Show has proven to be highly successful the past two years it has been hosted in Lloydminster as part of the annual Stockade Roundup, and we hope to build on that success again this year, November 2-5. The quality of the show in terms of facilities, participation, and quality of cattle exhibited has been exceptional. The junior events have drawn a large number of participants as well. Agribition is always a highlight of the fall show and sale season and Angus always has a dominant presence. It is a great opportunity to see some of the best cattle in the world and to network with your fellow breeders. The Saskatchewan Angus Association also offers over $3,000 in prizes in the commercial cattle show. This year’s show runs November 21-26 and it is business as usual, even with the on-going construction of new and up-graded facilities. Make time in your busy schedule to attend some of these events. There will be many purebred and commercial sales this fall as well, and we want to see strong attendance at all of them. Support your fellow cattlemen and enjoy the best part of our business; the people.

Business Development for SK/MB, Mr. Bob Toner in attendance to speak with many of the breeders. Bob will be out and about this fall at various feeder sales and the Fall Gold Show. Many of you will be weaning your calves soon and others are busy getting ready for the fall show run and sales. Please keep Manitoba in mind as we have a great Fall Gold Show in conjunction with Ag Ex. The MAA Gold Show starts at 10 am onThursday Oct. 27th.There has been over 100 head exhibited the past two years with outstanding quality. This year the show will be shown on the internet via Liveauctions but we’d still like to see you at the barn for a visit with fellow breeders. The next event will be our Annual General Meeting moved to Nov. 5th in Neepawa, this was changed from January. We are hoping that more breeders will find the time to come out to this meeting. The Manitoba Angus Association is currently working on a new Herd Directory which will be published and

ready for distribution the first part of January. This will be a handy item when you are making plans to tour farms of Angus producers in Manitoba. The 2017 Convention Planning Committee continues to make preparations to host the Canadian Angus Nation Convention, June 8 -11, 2017. We hope that many people from each end of the country will be able to attend! The Keystone Klassic Sale will be held December 3rd at the Westman Center of Excellence in the Keystone Centre at Brandon. This is a high quality sale which you won’t want to miss.

sources to replace the lack of pasture and hay. Weight gains on grass have been low in many of the community pasture areas. Early sale reports have heavy losses coming from the sales of these cattle just based on purchase prices this spring and poor gains this summer. The last six weeks have seen the commercial price for fat cattle drop well into the red. I don’t believe we seen this drop falling much below $2.40 /lb. It has shown some bottoming the last couple weeks.The feeder market will likely see prices this fall we haven’t seen since 2013. But early stocker sales this past weekend were stronger than I would have expected. We are trying to build the cow herd up again in Ontario but this fall The first purebred sale of the fall was great averaging almost $6000 but bred yearlings were less than last year.

More cattle were offered up for auction this year and a good offering of cows, bred heifers and calves were sold. Looks like the rest of the fall sales have plenty of good cattle on offer. The trend of optimistic cattle prices may be tested this fall if current commercial prices are any indication for the next few months. The Ontario Angus Association will be hosting The National Angus Show Monday November 7, 2016 at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Hero Burgers is the major sponsor of the event. We welcome all to come and take in the sale and show. If the Preview Show was any indication of the depth of Angus cattle the National show will be worth attending. See you there!

Canadian Junior Angus Association by Raina Syrynk - President, CJAA

Not too long ago the CJAA wrapped up Showdown in Truro, Nova Scotia. There were over 70 juniors in attendance from across Canada and the United States who enjoyed some great Maritime hospitality. Thank you to all the sponsors and supporters of the junior program that make events like these possible. At Showdown, annually, we welcome a new board and elect the Executive for the coming year. Incoming directors include Heidi Tymko representing Alberta, Tyra Fox representing Saskatchewan, and Ella Wood

representing the Maritimes. We would like to thank outgoing directors Chad Lorenz, Patrick Holland, and Shane Roger for their time on the CJAA board. The 2016/2017 executive is as follows: PresidentRaina Syrnyk, Vice President- Michaela Chalmers, Secretary- Brooke Bablitz, and Treasurer- Mark Sample. For any junior interested in becoming a board member, the deadline for nominations is January 31. Contact any current director or our Coordinator Belinda Wagner for more information on what is involved. I can guarantee you will learn from the experience and grow from it, as well as have a lot of fun. Each year the CJAA has been fortunate to receive a donation heifer to raise funds for our scholarships. We will once again be selling a heifer by ‘dutch auction’ before the Masterpiece sale at Canadian Western Agribition and this year’s heifer is being kindly donated by JPD Angus. I would also like to congratulate our 2016 winners Michaela

Chalmers of Ontario, Melanie Wood of PEI and Rebecca Redner of Ontario. There is $4500 awarded and the application deadline is June 15 annually. Mark your calendars for the 2017 GOAL Conference which will be held in Edmonton, Alberta from February 18-20 at the Fantasyland Hotel (West Edmonton Mall!!) and Showdown 2017 which is going to be in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan July 20-22.

There are many opportunities - - various scholarships, awards, travel bursaries, and our annual events. Follow our Facebook page or check out the CJAA website for more information, and APPLY! You never know where it might take you.

Canadian Junior Angus Ambassador by Michaela Chalmers - Junior Ambassador

Greetings to everyone from Ontario! I cannot believe how quickly the summer has slipped away as I attended my first classes back at the University of Guelph today and I find myself wondering where all the time has gone. For those of you who I haven’t had the opportunity to meet yet, I am your new Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador. I am so excited to have been given the chance to represent you all this year!

Page 46

Angus World

Over the course of the summer I have covered a lot of Canadian ground. My journey as the Ambassador began back in June in beautiful Quebec City at the Canadian Angus Association’s National Convention. It was a great couple of days where many exciting things happened in the world of Canadian Angus, including the Ambassador competition Next stop on the list was Showdown. This year our national junior show was held out east in Truro, Nova Scotia at the end of July. We had some very hot weather but despite that an impressive turnout of junior participants and high quality cattle from all over Canada. Finally, I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural Canadian Beef Industry Conference held in Calgary, Alberta at the beginning of August. It was an amazing event that encompassed every aspect of the beef industry. I would highly recommend attending this event in the coming years as it is set to become an annual occurrence.

Herd Reference 2016 *

I cannot wait to see what else is in store for me this year and I look forward to getting the chance to meet with Angus enthusiasts all over Canada and the world, and I hope to be at many of the fall shows. If at any time anyone would like to chat with me or has any questions for me I would love to hear from you. I urge all Junior Angus members to get involved and stay in touch. Be sure to check out all the amazing opportunities listed on our website. Until next time! Michaela Chalmers

Those attending the Convention had the opportunity to stroll on "the Plains of Abraham" situated right beside our hotel; Le Concorde, as well as an overlook of old Quebec, the St. Lawrence River and were able to see how it was a perfect fortress spot years ago to defend the new found land. We listened to excellent speakers, met the new Business Development Team and the Director of New Generation Breeder Development with the CAA, brushed up on some Canadian history, enjoyed touring the Quebec landscape and of course the food delicacies. It was a pleasure to also meet Milford Jenkins, President of the American Angus Foundation, who attended our Convention and spoke briefly during our CAF Annual General Meeting. The highlight of the Convention for the Canadian Angus Foundation of course was the over $172,000 raised at the Building The Legacy 5 Sale following the Saturday evening banquet. On behalf of the CAF, it was my pleasure to personally thank and present a pin to donors, purchasers and volunteers to those at the Convention. Merci, Thank You, to everyone who made this sale happen! Congratulations to the Juniors who attended and participated at Showdown 2016 in Truro, Nova Scotia this July. By all accounts, a great time was had by all. Juniors, the courtesy of sending a thank you note to the CAF and sponsors for our contributions is very much appreciated. Thank You! We are ever so grateful to Belinda Wagner, the Junior Angus co-ordinator,
