First and foremost I would like to say it was a pleasure putting together a tribute to our long time Angus fieldman Brian Good. Without exception every conversation I had when contacting people in the industry had a positive response and usually a good story. It was a daunting project as Brian not only knew people in every level of the industry, he had a good relationship with them. It was very clear that he could relate to them and understand what

would work to the benefit of all dealing with them. Brian is an Angus man and will always be recognized that way wherever he may be. The years, the many miles and countless hours he has put in over his career have earned him a reputation of respect based on a vast knowledge of the Canadian beef industry at a level that few achieve. Although his passion for Angus cattle was foremost with Brian, he always had time to look at other breeds and usually had a pretty good idea of what was happening within each breed. I would like to thank Piper Whelan and the Canadian Cattlemen magazine for allowing me to re-print their article, I felt it was well written.

Fall 2021 **

The agriculture business is a challenging one by any standards and this year in the beef business those challenges are centered around the drought and the effect it has on feed. There are many predictions as to how much the Canadian beef herd will shrink and I am not going to quote any of them other than to say it will be smaller. That might be something to keep in mind when deciding how many sale bulls to keep. At this point the fall show season this year will be more robust than last year with several shows going ahead. The number of cattle shown will be slightly lower than we are used to seeing attend however it will be an opportunity to get together, visit and maybe get some commerce done. Until next time,

There may also be different references for the use as livestock feed for different plant types and species. For example, small cereal grain crops sprayed with one product may be acceptable as livestock feed, while legumes may not. Withdrawal period is another key piece of information contained on a product label. A product may specify the number of days before the crop can be grazed or harvested for livestock feed and it may also contain a withdrawal period for when cattle are moved off a pasture to hold prior to shipping. Stress and damage can also affect how plants respond to chemical and has potential to impact these very important dates. If in doubt, contact the product representative in your area to inquire about updated information around use of crops sprayed with their product used as livestock feed. If cattle are inadvertently exposed to sprayed crops used for feed or grazing, it’s time to do a Toxin Exposure investigation. Your veterinarian will have access to the Canadian Global Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (CgFARAD) which is designed to provide veterinarians, and their clients (producers), with accurate withdrawal information on the disposition of drugs or chemicals in animals and their products. Contact your veterinarian, have the product and exposure dates available, and request withdrawal information. VBP+ has some new resources that can help producers in managing on-farm food safety risk. We have an improved template for recording spraying information and a new template to help a producer and/or veterinarian record information for toxic exposures.

Premature Calf Provides Opportunity for Vet Students by Nykole King During the first ever calving rotation held at the Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence (LFCE) this spring, senior veterinary students were met with a challenging calving.

Palmer says that the premature calving at the LFCE gave the veterinary students valuable first-hand experience in following through on treatment plans. These plans included frequent feedings, encouraging the calf to suckle on its own, and then monitoring its intake of colostrum. Colostrum is the mother’s first milk — it’s thicker than the usual milk and is only produced during the first day or two after calving. The newborn calf must consume an adequate quantity of colostrum preferably within the first six hours of birth to ensure a successful transfer of immunoglobulins (antibodies). Calves absorb immunoglobulins from the colostrum directly into their blood stream. But after six hours, gut closure begins to occur, meaning the calves begin to lose that ability, and gut closure is completed 24 hours after birth.

“Students on the first calving rotation spent many hours monitoring calving — recording the time to mothering and first intake of colostrum,” says Palmer. “Blood samples were harvested before colostrum ingestion and two days after birth to assess the level of intake. This was a valuable learning opportunity and will be included in future rotations.” Because colostrum is so vital to calf survival, it is important for producers to look at the immunoglobulin content of the product they use, says Palmer. Some newer products also contain additional energy sources, which is especially helpful in situations where calves are weakened due to cold weather or a difficult birth. “Newborn calves do not have a lot of energy reserves, so it’s quickly used up trying to stay warm,” says Palmer. “Premature and otherwise undersized calves have even less reserves, making their situation all that much more critical. Weak, hypoglycemic calves often cannot stand and remain sternal or lie flat on their sides.”

A premature calf born three weeks earlier than expected gave WCVM veterinary students some valuable experience. The fourth-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine “Without (DVM) students were on the final day of their rotation colostrum, the risk when a male calf was born on April 12, 2021, about of the calf three weeks earlier than expected. In April and May, 400 succumbing to cows and heifers calved at the LFCE’s Forage Cow-Calf infection during Research and Teaching Unit, located south of Clavet, the first several Saskatchewan. weeks following birth is much Typically, a premature calving would be concerning higher than a calf for beef cattle producers, explains Dr. Colin Palmer, that receives associate director of the LFCE and co-ordinator of the adequate quantities WCVM calving rotations. However, for the six students of colostrum,” says on the clinical rotation, it provided a learning Palmer. opportunity in the last weeks of their veterinary program. “It really gives the students a chance to develop their skills,” says Palmer. “Examining the calf, determining its needs and developing a treatment plan — it’s all good stuff [for them to experience].” The students and animal technicians at the LFCE noted that the newborn weighed 43 pounds, which is about half that of the other calves in the herd. The calf’s front incisors hadn’t erupted yet, and he had a very short hair coat and very soft toes. He was able to nurse from his mother on his own from the first day of birth but required supervision. For the students, knowing what to do in situations where a calf is chilled from the cold, mismothered or when twins are born is critical once they’re working in the veterinary field. Page 10

By the end of May, the young six-week-old calf was out in pasture with his mother and growing Fortunately, there are dried colostrum products available, and producers can reconstitute the dried product in warm water. During their calving rotations at the LFCE, the fourth-year veterinary students learned more about the importance of colostral immunity from Dr. Philip Griebel, a professor at the USask School of Public Health and an associate member of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine’s (WCVM) Department of Veterinary Microbiology. They helped Griebel by recording data and harvesting samples.

Calves born a month or more preterm are not viable without intensive care and will not survive past one or even two days. Yet this small calf survived the critical period in the first hours of life, thanks to the supervision of the veterinary students and LFCE staff. Palmer says that by the end of May, the young six-week-old calf was out in pasture with his mother. And although he’s small for his age, the calf is still viable — and growing. This story was first published on the WCVM's website.

Brian Good ‘Respect Underpins Successful Career in Cattle Business’ by Piper Whelan, Field Editor, Canadian Cattlemen magazine As the Canadian Angus Association’s longtime commercial fieldman retires, Brian Good looks back on those who shaped his path and what he learned about an industry that is all about people. When Brian Good became a field representative for Independent Breeders Service in the 1990s, a fellow fieldman offered some simple yet valuable advice that’s served him well through the years. Keith Coates, then a fieldman for the Canadian Hereford Association, took Good under his wing in his early days in this role. “One thing he said was ‘treat everybody the same.’ The guy that has a good bull or a bad bull, it doesn’t matter because guess what? They all pay the same amount of money. Don’t forget that,” Good recalls. Treating everyone with respect and fostering genuine connections has allowed Good to become one of the best-known figures in the Canadian beef industry. As the top field representative for the Canadian Angus Association (CAA), Good worked for two decades to bridge the gap between purebred and commercial sectors. He’s developed an ability to remember names and details about people that others have to take Dale Carnegie courses to master, something that he notes makes a difference in building relationships, and you’re sure to see him at field days, bull sales, auction markets and cattle shows across Western Canada. Good announced his retirement in February, after 21 years of representing the Angus breed across the country and on the international stage. The scores of well-wishers who sent their best at hearing this news are a testament to his success in creating connections. Good’s career path provided opportunities to experience a variety of facets of the beef industry, and Angus cattle have always played a starring role. His father, Glenn Good, started their purebred Angus herd, Black Browe Cattle Company, at Red Deer, Alta., in 1957. “I was four years old, so I’ve been in it all my life,” says Good. His grandmother named their farm, he explains, for the “black cattle and the brow of the hill, because that went down into the river valley.” Good’s father was a well-known figure in the breed who served as CAA president in 1983. The farm’s entry in the Canadian Angus History Book published in the 1980s lists numerous noteworthy bulls and females from the Black Browe breeding program, cattle that left their mark in the show and sale rings and on purebred herds across the country. As a teenager, Good spent three summers Page 12

working for friends of his father’s, Berwyn and Leta Wise of Boa-Kae Ranch at Irricana, Alta., travelling to cattle shows and taking care of their large show string of Shorthorns. It was a valuable experience for Good, who learned much from the Wises and looked up to them. In the fall of 1971, Ken Cox, who worked for San-Dan Charolais of Erskine, Alta., invited Good to come along to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. “Ken was a great teacher and a great guy to work with,” he says. They travelled to Toronto by train, taking care of the cattle in uninsulated boxcars. They often had to wait hours in the cold before the train stopped and they could return to the passenger cars. After these early experiences on the road, Good returned to the family farm where with his wife, Lynanne, they raised their two children, Kevin and Tracey. In 1991, they dispersed their main herd, and Good looked towards new opportunities in the beef industry. He worked for a time with Gary Smith of Alta Exports. Smith connected Good to Harry Haney of Lethbridge, who then owned Independent Breeders Service and was looking for a fieldman. To help increase business for Independent Breeders and raise its profile, Good quickly realized he needed to visit more potential customers. “You’ve got to go to a sale, and when the sale’s over you’ve got to over there and visit the guy that bought the bull,” he explains. “I was lucky because when I went to some of these deals, I happened to know a lot of people.” He met many beef producers through his involvement with Red Deer Westerner Days, chairing the beef committee for several years. “I was never scared to approach people anyway. That’s half the battle.” Good enjoyed his time with Independent Breeders, and he speaks highly of Haney. “He was probably one of the greatest guys to work for,” he says. This role required him to be on the road quite frequently, travelling throughout Canada and the United States. He recalls one year where he made at least 11 trips from Red Deer to Lloydminster to attend sales. “I got to the point where I could go up and back in the same day.” Tying together purebred and commercial sectors After Independent Breeders, Good worked briefly in sales management with two of his mentors — Rob Holowaychuk of Optimal Bovines Inc. and Doug Henderson of DJH and Associates Ltd. — and on his own, but decided

it wasn’t for him. The opportunity to step back into the role of fieldman came when he mentioned to then-CAA president Mabel Hamilton of Belvin Angus at Innisfail, Alta., that it would be valuable for the association to have a fieldman focused on commercial producers. Good took on the position of commercial fieldman in 2000, primarily serving Alberta and British Columbia. As an ambassador of the breed, he’s travelled across Canada, the U.S. and to international beef events, always with the goal of connecting the CAA to the commercial cattleman. “Between the purebred and the commercial side of it, you have to tie them together,” he says. “To me it’s so simple: work with your commercial customers. Go to the auction mart, pat them on the back for selling their good set of calves.” He believes it’s a mistake to give less attention to the commercial sector, and he feels that some purebred producers don’t truly consider the needs of these customers. Meeting countless commercial producers provided a better understanding of what matters to them, and learning what traits and numbers really matter to them is just one example of this. He’s had ranchers who run large operations tell him that they leave the EPDs for the purebred breeders, preferring to focus on performance data instead when purchasing seedstock. “I think the purebred guys could listen a lot better to the commercial guys,” he says. “Why would you try to raise something that they don’t want?” This extends to taking the time to get to know your customers. “What I always thought was a good deal in the purebred business, if you’re having a bull sale, is delivering the bulls,” he says, mentioning the importance of not being in a hurry to leave once you arrive at the customer’s place. “You have a visit with that guy, and (say) ‘Okay, this is the bull, let me have a look at your cows.’ You’ve got to help them out that way.” Being visible, available and knowledgeable about what he promoted was key to doing his best as a fieldman. His favourite events, bull sales, provided the perfect opportunity to see as many people as possible at once. This is true for producers as well, he adds, pointing towards breeders who attend as many community events as possible to build connections and market their cattle. “If I ever had to do it over again — start in the purebred business — I don’t think I’d have much trouble selling bulls because I know all the little tricks,” he said laughing.


It’s a people business In addition to his love for the Angus breed, Good has always respected other beef breeds and believes in the value of purebred breeders connecting with each other. On social media, he shares posts promoting the sale of cattle of all breeds, not just Angus. “You’ve got to reciprocate,” he says, adding that the perception of arrogance on the part of one breed can lead to trouble. “One of our problems in the beef business is that we don’t respect the other breeds.” Respect in every capacity is vital when navigating a job that, at its heart, is all about people. “One thing that I’ve always known about this business is it’s a people business, and I think that’s probably true in a lot of businesses,” Good explains. His most important lesson in working with others has been to truly listen to them. “You’ve got to learn to be a good listener,” he says. “When you go one-on-one with somebody, when you drive into their yard, they don’t want to hear what I’ve got to say… unless they ask. Let them do the talking.”

It’s people just as much as cattle that have made this job memorable. From mentors such as Bob Prestige to colleagues such as Belinda Wagner and Bob Toner, industry figures such as Dave Callaway and Grant Rolston to breeders such as Bob Switzer, Millie Boake, Stacey Stauffer and Jon Fox, Good is quick to mention those who stood out during his time with the CAA. “Those people have always been pretty important to me over the years.” In turn, Good has been important to many people in the beef industry. His commitment to going the extra mile to establish mutually beneficial connections is illustrated by the partnership he fostered between the CAA and the Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC). Building a relationship with LMAC executive secretary Rick Wright allowed for greater access to the commercial sector. Early on Good facilitated the association supplying all the beef to LMAC’s annual convention. Later, the CAA sponsored the Livestock Auction Market of the Year award. This visibility at a gathering of auction markets and order buyers from across the country was valuable for the CAA, and Good encouraged field representatives at other breed associations to

sponsor the annual conference. Together with the Canadian Simmental, Limousin, Charolais and Hereford Associations, the five breed associations sponsored buckles for the top Canadian auctioneers. This sponsorship is now rotated each year. To recognize how he’s gone above and beyond to support its members and build these relationships, LMAC presented Good with the special Industry Champion award in 2019, which has only been given out three times in 20 years. “I’m pretty proud of that,” says Good. “That’s the biggest honour I ever got.” To transition from raising cattle to a job that allowed him to be a “professional visitor,” as his wife describes, in the industry he loves, has been a rewarding experience for Good, who reflects fondly on the people and cattle that have shaped his time as a fieldman. “It’s been a great career for me because when you sell your farm you’ve got to go and do something else,” he says. “To me, this has been an ultimate job because I’ve got do what I wanted to do — I get to see cattle every day, get to see people every day.” Re-Printed with premission -Published April 7, 2021

Tributes to Brian Good Brian has had a long and accomplished career in the Canadian cattle industry. He worked in many capacities and levels during his lifetime, all with the central focus being the Angus breed. He was always one that was appreciative of what was happening in other breeds, always had time to stop and chat with everyone no matter their age or their lot in life. He is known and respected at all levels of the industry from the cow-calf producers, auction markets, backgrounders, feedlots and packing plants and on to the retail side of the business. On the seedstock side of things quite simply he is known by all, no matter the breed. Best wishes Brian! Dear Brian, Well it's all over . . . it's time to put the horse away, hang up your saddle and bridle . . . brush your horse one more time and turn him out to pasture . . . a job well done! Congratulations on the hanging up your spurs. I always knew you a ‘Man of Vision’ . . . like the cowboy on his horse on the hill at Cochrane. The Angus association is in a much better place because of you my friend. You are an ACE . . . ACE stands for the qualities that make a man. A is for Attitude - C is for Character - E is for Enthusiasm. Brian you have proven and been a huge Ambassador for the Angus breed and Agriculture your whole life. Thank You! Enjoy your time!

Brian Good (Brain God) Nicknamed by Gary Smith of Alta Exports. The Goods & Switzer’s go away back when Angus weren’t that popular. We worked on many things together for the betterment of the breed! Brian’s biggest accomplishment was his dedication to the commercial industry - he was respected by every segment whether you were cow/calf man, backgrounder, feedlot operator or packer. His general knowledge of everything in general he has been recognized by many other breed representatives for his contributions to our livestock industry!! We have many experiences from riding on a train with cattle to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, the first Agribition and numerous commercial sales across Canada. One of the best was when we went to Mexico to judge their National show. Brain god was supposed to be the ring man. He will have to tell u the rest of the story! Brian you are truly the champion!

Brian Good Having anything to do with Brian Good was and will continue to be an outstanding experience to be cherished. I was fortunate to be able to spend considerable time attending sales and at times traveling with Brian. I would say the best word to use when describing Brian and his entire way of life is Page 14

Angus World

“gentleman”. Everything Brian tackles is carried out with class and kindness. And I mean everything from ordering a meal from a waitress, to ordering a rent a car, to discussing pedigree on a not so wonderful animal. No matter the outcome of the conversation, one comes away knowing that the opinion rendered was fair, truthful, and honest. Furthermore, you appreciated the opinion that was rendered because you knew it was formulated without bias or prejudice, without ego or malice, and without jealousy or envy. Brian delivers the real deal, something that is becoming a rare commodity. Many times, he leaned over to me and said “have you seen the Hereford Bulls”? (or other breed present) “Gosh there are some incredible animals in there”! That is why his name is spoke with respect and reverence by many cattlemen, and yes ladies, “cattle women” as well, because he delivers the honest truth in a kind and honest manner. Something you can hang your hat on; not always what you want to hear, but worth it’s weight in gold. I have never heard Brian say anything critical without giving credit for what was good or what he liked. Retirement can mean many things to many people. I am wishing Brian the best retirement possible. But I am also hoping that from an industry perspective, (and perhaps selfish interests on my part), that this fine gentleman continues to be active within the industry. His way and means are a breath of fresh air to us all. I am so very proud to call Brian my friend. Thank you Brian for your inspiration, insight, and especially for the class act that you live by. You mentoring the industry would be good for us all! Most sincerely, Miles Crandall Verified Beef Production Plus, Delivery Services

Brian Good to me is not only the face of the Canadian Angus Association, he is a well known face in the cattle industry. Brian is highly respected by purebred and commercial cattlemen of all breeds, and everyone enjoys to visit him. Every since I was young, when ever I saw Brian I made sure to visit with him. He always offered encouragement for you, your operation, and your family. Most of all, he always had time for you regardless if you were a well known breeder or small breeder just starting out, you felt important. Brian's presence will be missed in the Angus breed and the cattle industry as a whole! Brian, thanks for all your time and dedication to the Angus breed! Enjoy your retirement and please know you are always welcome at our farm, our sale and any other place our

paths may cross! Our boys Cody and Logan enjoy your presence as much as I did when I was young! You are an amazing mentor and ambassador and will always be the "Angus Guy" in my mind! BJ, Jody, Cody & Logan Scheirlinck BJ Cattle Co.

} Brian Good is and has been the face of the Canadian Angus Association. I don't think there is a Angus breeder, commercial cattleman, feedlot operator, or auction yard that hasn't had the opportunity to meet and work with Brian, and that is a testament to the time and effort that Brian has dedicated to the CAA over the years. I don't think people realize how hard it is to spend so many days a year on the road, yet Brian did that year after year. He had amazing support from Lynanne for all those years and he would be the first person to confirm that as fact Brian, you have been a good friend. We have solved all the world's problems and talked each other off the ledge from time to time, but you have taught me two things: the first, I have a friend that lives in Red Deer and secondly, my door is always open for you and Lynanne. Enjoy some down time at home. Grant Rolston Grant Rolston Photography

I met Brian Good at Rancher’s Choice Bull Sale in Medicine Hat about 25 years ago. I was intrigued by his knowledge of the Angus industry and his welcoming demeaner. Me being a partner in the Medicine Hat Feeding Co. we had continuous visits. Brian would call me and request our fall run Angus Sale dates as well as just to catch up on how things were going. Though his schedule was busy, he would make an appearance at least one fall run sale a year. Brian was a real supporter and advocate of the auction method to market cattle. He has probably attended more cattle sales in his career than any other person in the cattle industry! That leads to my memory and gaining respect for Brian. My wife and I were on our way to our first LMAC conference in Brussels, Ontario. We were at the Calgary airport very early one morning to catch our flight. We were astonished when we were walking to

our flight gate to hear “Jay-Gail”. It was the Good’s sitting in a café having breakfast. We were welcomed to join them for breakfast and a visit. During breakfast we had mentioned that once we hit Ontario “We didn’t know where the hell we were going!” Brian says “Don’t worry, we will take care of you!” And he definitely did! Brian and Lynnanne were meeting John and Susanne Milhausen from the Canadian Charlais Association at the airport. Brian and John waited patiently until we got our rental car and allowed us to follow them to Grand Bend. Being at our first LMAC convention we did not know many people. We were sitting in the lounge having a cocktail and Brian and his entourage were at a table. Brian was the first to invite us over to their table. Within the first half hour we had been introduced to half the convention. Because of Brian, we look forward to attending LMAC convention yearly. We have made lifelong friendships with many people from across Canada in the cattle industry! Brian received the prestigious buckle for “Industry Champion” from LMAC in 2019. That was so exciting for all of us and could not have gone to a more deserving individual in the cattle industry as well as the cattle marketing industry! Brian has the respect of many people in the cattle industry for his knowledge of cattle, his personality, and his welcoming presence. I am very blessed to have many memories with Brian and Lynnanne! They have turned out to be great friends. My wife and I would like to wish Brian a happy retirement! Thank you Brian for everything you have done for us.

Long Time Angus Ambassador Brian Good Brian Good is truly an Angus legend with his in-depth knowledge of the commercial and purebred business. Along with the respect that he enjoys from his peers. Brian has Angus blood in his veins. He along with his family have a long and legendary history of devotion and dedication to the Angus breed. No Angus event was ever too far for Brian not to attend. He truly loved the Angus breed and Angus people. If we are fortunate to have another one like him in the industry there is only one way—and that’s to clone him! Cheers! Tom Burke American Angus Hall of Fame

Champion and since then we have become good friends. We hit it off and would seek each other out at functions two-three times per year that we would attend. Brian is my kind of guy, “shoot from the hip” and “brutally honest”, two great qualities!! As far as stories Brian has told a few but I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard as the one that was told of him and Bruce Holmquist visiting Japan. I believe, representing Canadian Angus and Simmental referring to how hot it was at the time and the walking they did. All in all I will miss him along the trail however I don’t want to keep him from Lynanne and the kids. Enjoy retirement my friend, you’ve earned it. Kevin McArter Auctioneer Brussels Livestock & M-R Farms

We have truly appreciated Brian's contributions and dedication over the years to the Angus breed. It was always great to catch up with Brian on the road and for his updates on the commercial markets. He was always very insightful to the Angus and cattle sales. Brian always had a smile and always had time to chat and share a laugh or two, he was a huge asset to the breed over the years. We will miss you but hope to catch you on the Angus trail, in your new retirement role. Thank you, for all the endless hours and time you dedicated to Angus and the cattle industry in general!

} Brian Good was an excellent ambassador of Canadian Angus. As an operator in facets of the purebred and commercial industry, his experience and dedication have been invaluable and will be sorely missed in the future. We hope he enjoys a well earned retirement after his many years of service to the Canadian Angus Association.

First and foremost, we as an industry are going to miss this man! He is a staple in our business that will never be replaced. I met Brian for the first time at the LMAC convention and Auctioneer contest in 2005 in Waterloo, Ontario when I became the Rookie Page 16

Brian and I often crossed paths during his time with the CAA. He was always a welcome face with something relevant and interesting to say or talk about. It seemed like he was always at "the industry events" and knew just about everyone there (or at least they knew who he was). There has never been an breed ambassador equal to Brian. Brian was (and is) also one of the more active members of our industry on social media (Facebook & Twitter to be specific). If you are interested in what's going on in the cattle industry, look no further than Brian's twitter account! He is a true promotor! "Cheers to you Brian, it was an honour working with you!"

The Perlich family and staff would like to congratulate Brian Good on an outstanding career promoting the Canadian Angus Association. His years of hard work and dedication to this industry is evident in the success it has had. We are honoured to have been on a small part of Brian’s journey. We thank you for you service and commitment in the cattle industry. And we wish Brian all the best in his future endeavours. If Brian is ever in our neck of the woods, the coffee is always on my friend! Perlich Family & Staff Perlich Bros Auction Market

} When I was the BC Angus Field Man, Brian was my boss, so to speak. It was more of a team relationship than boss to employee. I enjoyed the time we spent together at sales and conventions. Angus breeders from every part of Canada have benefited from the untold hours and miles Brian devoted to the breed that he loved. It was my privilege to work with Brian, and I wish him a long and enjoyable retirement. Jack Brown, British Columbia Fieldman, Jalormi Red Angus, Retired

I traveled with Brian Good in 2012 to the Williams Lake Bull Sale while I was the Junior Ambassador. He knew I would love the BC Interior and we spent several days visiting ranches in that area and meeting producers. He had such a skill for conversing with people and building relationships.

What I’d like to say about Brian Good is the fact that I can’t think of anyone that’s been a better ambassador that encompasses the qualities that Brian Good has exemplified over the years. From the first time I met him to running into him in Denver at the National Western to seeing him up in northern Alberta at the Northway Bull Sale, Brian has always had a smile on his face and represented the Angus breed with integrity. I’ve never met such a personable man in the industry and he sure has done the Angus breed proud with his representation. It’ll be hard to replace a man of his stature. Our hats are off to Brian and we thank him for his years of service. Sincerely Clint Ellis and Cordy Cox Ellis Cattle Company

I vividly remember my first encounter with Brian quite vividly. I was working as a Feed Sales Rep in central Alberta and had dropped by a fall feeder sale at Innisfail Auction Market to see how the calf market was. Brian took it upon himself to introduce himself and welcome me to his table where he proceeded to introduce me to his industry connections and friends. Brian is a connector, he actively takes an interest in people and enjoys learning more about them. In his quiet way he has guided me towards opportunities and steered me away from potential disasters. I always feel like I have learnt something valuable following a visit with Brian. I want to thank Brian for the mentorship over the years and look forward to keeping in contact. I wish him the very best in his retirement from CAA and future endeavors.

} I just got finished reading a well written article by Piper Whelan announcing the retirement of Brian Good as commercial fieldman of the Canadian Angus Association. I felt compelled to add my two cents worth. I first met Brian when we were teenagers at the PNE in Vancouver. Brian was working with the Slezinas of Southolm Angus and I was a 4-H member with the Saanich Peninsula Beef Club under the leadership of the legendary Mrs. O’Reilly. My next run in with Brian was in Alberta about six years later. I was working in the beef barns at Western Breeders and Brian was at the stud taking an A.I. course. We renewed our friendship and became close friends over the years. Brian worked with his family and helped make Black Browe Cattle Company one of the premier Angus herds in Canada. I pursued a career in the auction business where Brian and I would run into each other frequently over the years. One memorable excursion with Brian and Lynanne, Brians brother Stan and his wife Roxann, was a ski trip to Whitefish, Montana on a bus with 30 of our new closest friends. Brian announced that he was going to join a Page 18

Angus World

group of us on the ski hill but instead chose to hold a table for us at the ski lodge for six hours. When we got off the ski hill, we found Brian with a new group of friends. Athletic prowess aside, Brian was the ultimate people person. He has never met a stranger and had the ability to give anyone a nickname. I never had the courage to ask him what mine was. Brian Good was the ultimate fieldman, he was professional, and he always rode for the brand whether it was for Independent Breeders or the C.A.A. Brian had a great eye for livestock. There was a time when he judged different breeds of cattle at some of the biggest shows in North America. We’re going to miss you Brian and your always shiny boots. I have a feeling we will still see both Brian and Lynanne at certain sales, whether he gets paid or not. Good Luck and safe travels my friend, your dedication to the industry has been incredible.

Thank you Brian for your years of dedication and service to the Angus Breed and the CAA . Brian Good , or as he's known in China, Dr Good, was and probably will remain " The face of Canadian Angus " in many circles. It didn't matter where you went he was recognized and always seemed to have a group around him as he "held court" . Brian opened many doors while with the CAA mainly in the commercial sector and with LMAC which were beneficial to all parties involved. I've known Brian since the mid 70s when we used to go to the Red Deer Summer Fair and the Junior Show in Bashaw and a few things have never changed about him . There's always a good story, you're going to get introduced to someone new and if you're not sure about Brian's opinion on something, wait a minute or two and you'll find out, like it or not. Brian is one I reach out to for some advice because he's "been there done that" for a lot of situations. He was and will likely remain a sounding board for lots of things I have on my mind. I'm sure you will still see Brian out and about at some sales and industry events, however if you really need to find him you might start by checking the Red Deer Dog Park or coffee row at Innisfail Auction Mart. Brian and Lynanne enjoy your retirement and I will "See ya down the road " Bob Toner

Like everyone in the industry I have known Brian for long time. He was a real asset to the Angus breed. What always impressed me was Brian was very knowledgeable about the whole cattle industry whether feedlot, commercial, Cow calf, packer. He would treated everyone the same young or old, large or small, commercial or seedstock producer and is truly interested in the full value chain. Doug Price Echo Sands Ranching

No one from coast to coast to coast in Canada is and has been better known the Brian Good. He is respected by more Angus movers and shakers for the last quarter century. From conception to consumer, Brian knows the business and all the personalities in the purebred, commercial, auction services, truckers and feedlot operators on a first name basis of the complete industries. Brian you have been a very trusted friend, someone you could rely on and have a great conversation with. Margaret and I wish you the bestin your retirement and hope that you and Lynanne and your family get to enjoy some valuable time together. We know you will not be far away!!

It all started 40 years ago when I was in high school. I would drive up the C&E Trail on my way to Red Deer. I would always see the Black Browe Cattle Co signs, and admire the beautiful black cattle there. In high school there was a program Work Experience, and I had work experience at Parsonage and Homes Cattle working for Duane Parsonage. I was telling Duane about seeing the Black Browe cattle, and he said I should go see Brian Good about going there for my next work experience. I went to see Brian and asked if I could take work experience there. He said it sounded like a plan to him! I started in the fall, and helped with feeding, calving, processing cattle, and with their annual Back to Basics production sale. Man did I learn a lot! I bought my first purebred Angus heifer out of their sale! As time went on, me and my girlfriend Shannon (who later became my wife) Brian and Lynanne became very good friends. Brian ended up being the Master of Ceremonies at our wedding. To this day, Brian means a lot to me and has helped me with my Angus herd along the way. Ive always found Brian to be a gentleman and have never seen him lose his cool. He has been a great ambassador for the Angus breed, and the cattle industry as a whole. Thanks Brian for the memories! Your friend, Mark Daines

Congratulations to Brian Good on his retirement from the Canadian Angus Association. My first introduction to Brian Good was when we traveled together to Humboldt, SK. We were both asked to speak at a producer meeting. Mr. Angus was asked to address the audience on the programs that the Angus association were involved with, and I was to talk on live cattle marketing. The meeting was in the evening and it was 45 below that night with a nasty wind. I think five or six cattlemen showed up to the meeting, and the lady serving coffee maybe would have been included in that count. I’m not sure if you would call us dedicated or crazy for venturing out that night. I have had the opportunity many times to witness Brian in action. Managing Saskatoon Livestock Sales for years, I would see Brian at many cattle functions and cattle sales. Brian has amazing communication skills; he can talk to anyone and has the ability to converse well with commercial and purebred cattle producers. Brian Good is a knowlegable cattleman himself, so I believe it comes very natural for him to converse with all sectors of the cattle industry. Brian has a great understanding of the cattle production and marketing sector and the importance these two roles play to guarantee success. Brian has invested a tremendous amount of time and has put on a lot of miles, promoting the great Angus breed of cattle. He is truly a profressonal, and has spent an entire career dedicated to the betterment of Angus. Brian is a huge supporter of the Livestock Markets Association of Canada and recognizes the auction system as being the true price discovery of live cattle. Brian was very instrumental in involving the Canadian Angus Association as a major sponsor with the Livestock Markets Association of Canada, the first breed association to participate. It was Brian who helped attract all the other major breed associations to become involved as major sponsors of LMAC. Brian and Lynanne attended many LMAC Conventions and Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championships. Brian’s involvement in the LMAC was not only monetary, but he involved himself in the association as a participant, contributing his expertise. The members of the LMAC have always greatly appreciated Brian’s opinion. Congratulations Brian and Lynanne on a most successful career with the Canadian Angus Association. Brian is truly recognized throughout the country as an ambassador of the Angus breed of cattle, has earned the utmost respect from all aspects of the cattle industry and has made many good friends along the way. Good Luck Brian, and enjoy your retirement. Your friend, Mike Fleury

Few people have had as broad scoped of a career in the seed-stock sector as Brian has, and even fewer have left as strong of a mark on so many people within it. Brian has a personality and knowledge of the beef business that was only surpassed by his passion for the industry itself, and for the people within it. One of Page 20

Angus World

the best examples of this is the relationship that he developed with the Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC). Through his efforts he brought all of the major Canadian Beef Breed Associations together in support of LMAC and its Auctioneers competition. Each year Canadian Angus, Canadian Charolais, Canadian Hereford, Canadian Limousin and Canadian Simmental joined together to sponsor buckles for the top five auctioneers as selected from the best Livestock auctioneers from across Canada. Through this relationship the seed-stock sector has established a close connection to the Auction mart owners that sell our bull buyer’s cattle. I was fortunate to attend many LMAC conventions across Canada along with Brian and Lynanne and have many great memories from those as well as other events. Time to “Pull a Hank’ Brian! Congratulations on a great career and thank you for the work you have done on behalf of all of us! Thank you Bruce Holmquist General Manager Canadian Simmental Association

Brian exemplifies all that is good about our business [no pun intended, Dave]. His knowledge of the cattle industry is extensive and he will gladly share his insights if you ask him. Brian also knows quality cattle, regardless of the breed or cross, and is not bashful about saying so. On a personal level he is a great one for attracting folks, and a simple conversation invariably leads to a gathering or a crowd; and Brian is always respectful of others. His sense of humor and one-liners never fail to crack me up and he is a super guy to travel with, or encounter at an industry event at home or abroad. One is blessed for certain if Brian calls you 'friend'. Best regards, Herb McLane

All the miles on Brian's truck are a testament to his commitment to the cattle industry and the people who work in it. I have a feeling he'll continue to put more miles on as he visits the many friends he has across western Canada. I look forward to catching up with him in his retirement.

As some people might know Brian and I are first cousins so have known Brian my whole life. Many fond memories of time spent at Black Browe Cattle Company when I was growing up. Brian and his Dad Glen were the biggest influence in us getting into the Angus business. Over the years Brian was responsible for guiding us down the right path when learning the business. As with any young breeder I would get excited about the latest trend or fad and would ask Brian what he thought. In his classic no BS manner he would say “Up to you but you might want to stick to raising sound functional cattle that the cowboys want.” I also credit Brian for giving me the best advice I ever received in life and that was “Dont sweat the little stuff”. I always admired Brians respect for the Angus breed and breeders but also how he was respected by other breed associations and cattlemen in general. Happy retirement Brian Gerald Oxtoby Southern Ox Angus

Like most people in the cattle industry, it was always a pleasure to catch up with Brian at an event. He always had time to tell me a story or two, never short on entertaining details. I envied his impressive network as he knew everyone at every deal. Perhaps our most interesting destination was to attend a beef conference in China in 2018, where several of us were speakers. Most of the Canadian group travelled to Beijing a few days early, but I chose to make my stay as short as possible. By the time I arrived at the hotel, Brian already had lots to say about the authentic Chinese food he had been experiencing and begged me to join him for dinner at a near by Burger King! I wish you the very best for your well-deserved retirement Brian! What an honor to have spent some time with you. Anne Brunet-Burgess General Manager, Canadian Cattle Identification Agency

} Brian you were a true ambassador, not only for the Angus breeder but all cattleman in general. You put in countless hours and endless miles promoting this industry that we all love and appreciate. We admired how you always had the time to visit at any event and share your wealth of knowledge to help improve the breed. You will be truly missed by all members of the association. Thank you for your years of dedication, enjoy your well-deserved retirement and we hope to see you down the road. Doug & Cheryl Domolewski C.D. Land & Cattle Company

Memories of a trip with Brian The phone showed the call was from the Canadian Angus Association, I answered and to my delight, it was Brian Good. He wanted to know if I would go on a field trip with him to the area around Barrie, Ontario and then on to West Bolton, Quebec to attend John Donaldson’s dispersal sale in the fall of 2009. I couldn’t say yes fast enough. Brian was so well respected by the members and had been so helpful to us when we first got involved in this business. It was an honour to be asked to accompany him on such a tour. He neglected to mention at that time that two other individuals would be on the trip with us. Namely Bob Switzer and Jon Fox. Well, it turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. More humour and laughs than you could imagine. I received a Master’s Degree in the art of selling bulls and spreading manure from two experts! We landed in London, Ontario. A vehicle was rented and we proceeded to drive to Barrie. Three of us actually got out and walked on the 401 while the other guy drove because of endless construction delays and unbelievable slowdowns. All this while passing three airports. Along the way, Bob pointed out that Tom MacDonald lived at Milton, Bill Jackson lived just off the north runway of Toronto Airport and Gord MacArthur was due North on the edge of the Niagra escarpment. Brian’s credentials as a travel agent were questioned. It did not matter. We arrived at Barrie, attended two sales, met with some ex-Sask guys who were feeding cattle, went to a couple of auction barns and visited with owners and staff at a fantastic meat processing facility. Everywhere we went Brian was met with so much respect. People loved to see him and visit with him, greeting him with smiles, hand shakes and grins. They just appreciated the fact that he showed up at their event or facility. It was fun to watch. A lifetime of dedication to and excellence in his job was being recognized. John Donaldson’s sale was truly unique and showed how different agriculture is viewed in Quebec as compared to the West. Many other facets of the business were present. Honey, maple syrup, dairy, cheesemaking, wine and liquor, vegetables as well as other food producers were there with many products on display. Industry, municipal and provincial government agencies were also present exhibiting the many funding efforts and other programs that were available. It was truly an event worth attending in the middle of an unbelievably beautiful part of our country. John Donaldson was a very skilled man and the Canadian Angus Association had been fortunate to have him serve as president. Page 22

The trip home was uneventful as we digested the events of the previous days. But one thing was quite apparent to me, all three of us had a deep respect for Brian. The way he conducted himself as fieldman, the very face of the Canadian Angus Association was remarkable. Brian, I wish you the best in your retirement. Drop in when you’re in the neighbourhood. Vicki has a couple of red varieties you should sample.

} Working with Brian Good through the years has truly been a privilege and a pleasure! Brian’s honesty, intergrity and sincere commitment to the Angus industry and the cattle industry is a testament to a knowledgeable man getting a job done! His willingness to work with both purebred and commercial cattlemen has benefited all Canadian cattlemen! Good luck in retirement. R.C. (Bob) Balog Balog Auction, Lethbridge, AB

} I think the first time I met Brian was when he started at Independant Breeders Service and was impressed by the sincere way he talked to people and by the way he always knew you no matter where or when he saw you and no matter what breed of cattle you raised. Never heard him run down any other breeds and that was nice. You Angus guys were lucky to have had him as breed ambassador for so long but in reality he championed the whole beef industry. Thanks Brian enjoy your retirement. Roger Deeg Deeg Simmental

Mention the name Brian Good in any cattle circle and everyone knows who you are talking about. Undoubtedly one of our breeds greatest assets out on the front line promoting the greatest most versatile beef breed ever to walk the pastures of the world. I thank you Brian for your years of service on the road always smiling, professional and able to accurately discuss the state of the beef industry and how the Angus breed fits in. I am privileged to be able to call you a friend for more than 30 years and hope to do so for many more . Wishing you nothing but the best in your retirement. Doug Allen Allencroft Angus

Brian Good was the breed industry ambassador that other breed representatives looked to emulate because of his amazing ability to connect with everyone. Purebred breeders, commercial producers, auction markets and individuals from the very young to the more seasoned, he developed relationships with ease and confidence. While I was employed with the Canadian Hereford Association, I had the opportunity to cross paths with Brian frequently at bull sales, shows and industry events, always looking forward to catching up. He appreciated good cattle of all breeds, but his true passion was Angus and he represented the breed across Canada and around the world with dignity. On a couple of occasion's, we had the opportunity to travel to bull sales together and I can't remember a silent moment. When I was new in my position at Hereford, he went out of his way to introduce me to commercial producers and when I moved to Alberta Beef Producers, he continued to be a sounding board for me providing feedback from producers and his thoughts about different initiatives ABP may be considering. Brian is a true cattlemen and gentleman and I know his efforts for the Angus breed will be missed. Brian, enjoy your retirement, it is well deserved. Brad Dubeau General Manager, Alberta Beef Producers

} On behalf of GENEX Canada we would like to congratulate Brian on his retirement. Brian is a true cattleman and passionate about the Beef industry. Brian always had time to stop and visit at many industry events. He enjoyed catching up with you on what is new and how you are you doing. Brian made friends everywhere he went his kind and caring manner always left a lasting impression with lot of people young or old. Brian the GENEX crew will miss you at field days, sales, and industry events. The next person will have big boots to fill. Thank you for all you have done for the beef industry and the people you met along the way. Patty Lasby GENEX Western Canada Manager

It has been my understanding that a philanthropist is a person who dedicates a large sum of money over time to a cause. It also means devoting a great amount of time or even a life time to a cause. Brian Good has been a philanthropist to the Canadian Angus Association and Angus cattle in general. When a person dedicates that amount of time to something he tends to influence a large number of people along the way. I was definitely one of those people. Over my time in the Angus business I have met many absolutely wonderful people but I can say that there has only been a few that have had an


influence over my devotion and decision making in Angus cattle. Brian Good was one of those people. He was always someone you could count on to tell you how it was and had his “modest” way of doing that. As I attended a number of sales this spring it was a great honour to listen to all the tributes and stories that people had for Brian. Most were just funny anecdotes but when you listened to them they were stories of how Brian brought people together and promoted Angus cattle. In some instances probably changed some minds of how they perceived Angus cattle because of his straight-shooting way of communication. One story, and there are many, takes place at the World Angus Forum at Spruce Meadows. My wife Shauna and I were looking for a beer after a class of cattle was complete. We ended up running into Brian and Don Raffan who were doing the same thing, they invited us to join and the conversation started. After a short time Doug and Linda Henderson and Brian and Judy Sutter and Grant and Sharon Cooke came by and Brian invited them in as well. Soon after, Jim and Carol Hern wandered by and Brain invited them to join as well. Our table took up the whole patio and Jim hinted the table was full and they would find another spot, but Brian in his “special way” said there was lots of room and had them join us adding, to our great time. The conversation went from cattle to kids, to the show itself, and the progress of Angus cattle world wide. It was a wonderful afternoon with all of us brought together by Brian Good. It took me a bit to realize the dynamic of the conversation as we were all involved in Angus cattle, but upon closer reflection, I realized that our group consisted of an auctioneer, a sale consultant, purebred breeders and commercial breeders all brought together by our Canadian Angus Fieldman/Promoter. Brian was doing what he was being paid to do but it didn’t matter because it was what he loved to do, and I for one was always amazed at how he did it and the time and devotion he spent doing it. Brian Good has been an immeasurable asset to Canadian Angus cattle and the Canadian Angus Association. He was always the one person who made everyone realize that Canadian Angus is not just purebred breeders and not just commercial breeders and not just cattle feeders, it’s a huge assembly line that has to work together to bring an amazing beef experience to the growing public.

the way. His passion for Angus cattle, and the programs that the CAA brought forward was apparent when speaking with breeders, or industry. He will be leaving big shoes to fill, and I look forward to sitting and having a "pop" with him when we can travel freely across the country again.

The Canadian Angus Association was very fortunate to have an ambassador of Brian's caliber. He was a very special asset that helped in growing Angus (Black and Red) into the leading, dominant beef breeds in Canada. Brian gained the respect of cattlemen from coast to coast and abroad, not an easy task to say the least. He did this by always being respectful of others no matter where they came from or what their role was in the industry. When I was working as Fieldman for the Canadian Charolais Association he always included me and colleagues from other breed associations in industry events and trade shows, asking our opinions on how best to

As an Angus breeder, past Maritime Director, and past President of the Canadian Angus Association, I have always enjoyed and valued any time spent with Brian Good. His knowledge of cattle, the ability to remember breeders names from across the county (and their cattle) has always impressed me.

represent the seed stock sector in the cattle industry. His genuine respect for others and always doing what he said he would do gained respect and admiration from everyone that he met. The only thing that ever made me question his character is that I don't know any other man that hasn't missed an episode of Grey's Anatomy in 18 years! Brian's quiet way of leading and thoughtful way of dealing with people made him a titan in the cattle industry and deserving of all of the accolades he is receiving on his retirement. Job well done Brian!! Garner Deobald Cedarlea Charolais

Over the course of many years I have had the opportunity of working with Brian. Both in my involvement through Bull Sales, and through the Auction industry. One thing that has always stood out to me is regardless if we were in British Columbia or Quebec, a seedstock sale or a commercial calf sale, regardless of what breed of cattle you raised, everyone knew who Brian was. I'm sure if you ask many people to associate one word with Brian they may say Angus, to me its Cattleman. His dedication and passion towards the entire cattle industry was unwavering. Our entire cattle industry should be greatful for his devotion and drive to better our entire industry. I am honored to call Brian a friend and wish him and his family all the best in his retirement.

Brian has been a true ambassador for the Angus Faternity. Brian has been faithful to the breed and would talk to anybody about Angus cattle. His hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed! A true asset that will be greatly missed!! “Brian was Angus when Angus was not cool!!” We wish him all the best in his retirement. Sincerely The Rodgers Family Rodger’s Red Angus

} The first story that came to mind about Brian was at Hillary's first Showdown experience. Brian was the judge for the Sales Talk. I think Hill was 11 or 12. She is not a public speaker or talker and was very, very nervous (her mom made her participate). She had phoned her Dad and they discussed what animal she should try to sell to Brian. She had to be convinced this was only for the competition, that she actually wasn't selling the cow! Imagine this her Dad gave her all the info and history on the cow. There were many phone calls back and forth. He even faxed her registration paper to the hotel, so Hillary had something to show Brian and start the discussion. As much as she didn't want to participate, she went to the corner of the barn to meet with Brian and pitch her sales talk. When I think back on it, the poor kid was shaking. Anyway she sat at the picnic table with him for about 10/15 mins. When she was done, she found me and I knew something was wrong immediately. She was very mad!!! This was her comments...Mom "I introduced myself to Mr. Good and he never asked me a single thing about the cow!!!!!" He said OH "I know your mom and dad, how are they? Did they come with you? Then he started talking about our farm and stories about Dad. He asked about our bull sale and told me that he had been to our place. Why didn`t you and Dad tell me you knew him. All he wanted to do was visit and talk." I thought yup... that's Brian!

It was with surprise and loss that we received the news from Brian that he was making the ‘giant leap’ into retirement from Canadian Angus Fieldman. From the British Columbia perspective; he provided a solid, trustworthy and honest approach to changes from our own provincial Fieldman to a national shared one. Brian skillfully navigated the vastness of the Angus ranching business of BC, putting on thousands of miles, and thousands of hours from the big Island to the Peace, the Kootenays, Cariboo, Okanagan to the

Thompson/Nicola, Chilcotin, Nechako, Skeena and northern Rockies…he was everywhere, while working to promote the Angus breed. Perhaps the best measure and one he may not realize is the number of commercial ranchers out here who ask of him and his thoughts on the marketing of their calves in the fall. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him as a friend & professional, and will miss his help in the sale season. All our Best from the Far West Brian!

} Thanks for your request Dave and your desire to honour your longtime friend Brian Good in this way. You’re right Brian epitomized the word “ambassador”. Brian filled so many shoes and played so many roles in his life long commitment to the Angus breed. The Angus breed was very fortunate to have Brian on our side. Although he supported many of us as breeders with his knowledge and insight, he really supported all levels from junior to the lifelong breeders that he knew as he was growing up. Always respectful and yet expressing his opinion in his kind mild mannered way you knew he spoke the truth. Brian often ended his statements with “you know”... but in reality you had just been informed. In many cases “I didn’t know” and I learned by talking to Brian Good. Brian was a “treasure chest” of knowledge about the people behind the cattle in our industry and our breed. Experience is difficult to replace and we will discover that more and more as Brian’s retirement takes hold. Thanks Brian for your lifelong commitment to the people and the cattle in the Angus breed. Happy Trails. Thanks again Dave for doing this. I only hope that there is an opportunity down the road, in a Covid free world where we can honour our good friend Brian Good in a more fitting way. Healthy Regards, Doug Reid & Family Reid Angus

We are extremely appreciative of what Brian Good has done for the Angus breed and our family as an ambassador to the commercial segment of our industry. At all times he was very approachable, always well presented and respectful. There is no doubt that he was the right candidate for his role for so many years. Thank you Brian for all the time that you spent away from your family to serve ours. Wishing you all the best. Don & Linda Mackenzie Jade Mackenzie & Steve Brander V8U Ranch Ltd.

When I think of the Canadian Angus Association the first thing that pops to my mind is Brian Good. He has been such a great ambassador to the breed and to the entire cattle industry. I always thought he must have a leer jet or maybe there was two of him because he seemed to be everywhere. I can't imagine the number of miles he put on in his career. He is one of the guys that I am proud to call a friend and there is always a handshake when we cross trails. They say that the cattle business is a people business and I would say the industry needs more people like Brian Good. Congrats on your retirement my friend. I know we will continue to see you where ever cattle people are gathered together. Frank Jenkins Jenkins Lazy U Ranching Ltd.

Brian Good-The Legend Brian Good is a legend in his own time, in the world of Angus cattle and Angus producers. He is recognized and respected across all beef breeds and all components of the industry. To me, he was the lighthouse of the Angus industry, guiding the industry in his quiet, conscientious manner. His wry sense of humour and casual jokes, many of them rated PG, made any tour a memorable excursion, whether rolling through the red soil of PEI or in a bus winding its way up to a Scottish castle where the mirrors of the bus were almost touching the stone wall on both sides as we inched up the steep incline. His knowledge of cattle and the

Mr. Brian Good will be missed by so many in the cattle business, and particularly the Angus fraternity. I believe I first had the pleasure of meeting Brian at Edmonton Farmfair. After that first introduction, every time he saw me, we chatted as though we were longtime friends as he is always up for a good laugh, and always supported our cattle program. Brian, you are a true gem of a man, and you are a great ambassador of the Angus breed. Wishing you only the very best on your retirement, and hope to see you down the road. Best Wishes my Friend!!!

The Canadian Hereford Association acknowledges Brian’s extensive contribution to the livestock industry. Hereford Digest Editor, Judy Finseth, recalls that her first assignment was travelling to Williams Lake Bull Sale with Brian Good “Brian welcomed me and gave me lots of sound advice regarding my new job. Since then, it is amazing how many cattle producers have acknowledged what a great ambassador Brian has been for the Angus breed and the cattle industry in general.” Stephen Scott echo’s Judy comments on Brian’s impact on the industry “Brian is a true champion for the beef industry. No matter the breed, Brian was always quick to support anyone raising cattle that fit what the industry needs. We wish Brian all the best in his retirement, and would like to thank him for his dedication to the cattle industry. Canadian Herefrod Association Calgary, AB

The Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC) Industry Champion Award was established 20 years ago, and Brian Good is one of only three people, and the only non-member of LMAC, to have received this prestigious recognition. LMAC recognized Brian for passion for, and contributions to, the Canadian cattle industry. He has been the “Face of the Angus Association” at auction markets across Canada for over 20 years. Brian Good has been a great promoter of “Price Discovery by Public Auction” across Canada. He travelled worldwide promoting Canadian cattle and the Canadian cattle industry. He has worked on many committees and freely offered his time to promote Canadian cattle production, genetics, feeding and marketing. Brian was also the first non-market operator or auctioneer asked to judge at the Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championship. Brian was one of the original committee members and was an integral part of the sponsorship committee for the event. Although Brian has retired from his position at the Canadian Angus Association, he will always be a member of the LMAC fraternity. From Livestock Markets Association of Canada

I met Brian over 20 years ago in Moose Jaw at the LMAC convention. Since that time, we have become very good friends. Brian has been an ambassador for the cattle industry and he is an accomplished “cattle” diplomat. Brian has a keen eye for quality cattle regardless of the breed or owner. His network of contacts in the cattle industry is extensive, and he has done so much good work for the Angus breed and the cattle industry. Brian is one of those rare people you can count on; he always made time to volunteer on committees or help with events. He is one of the most recognizable people in the Canadian cattle industry. With his retirement, Brian Good has left a very big pair of shoes to fill. Rick Wright Cattle Buyer Virden, MB

} When thinking of Brian Good the first word to come to my mind is respect. Brian both gives respect and receives respect and has done so throughout his career. I first met Brian in the late 1970’s. I had got to know his dad, Glenn and during a visit with Glenn & Brian’s mom Dot at Black Browe Cattle Co. Glenn took me for a herd tour and Brian was feeding weaned calves. We were introduced, exchanged a few words and Glenn and I moved on. Little did we know that we would later become good friends. I really got to know Brian in the 1980’s when we both served on the Alberta Angus board. Brian was always willing to share his knowledge, perspective of the industry and people and his experience. I learned a lot and received some great advice from Brian. He is also a great listener. When Brian joined Independent Breeder Services in the 1990’s our paths crossed many times and we spent time together at many industry events. I truly saw that his respect for everyone and the industry was something that he lived each day. Traveling with Brian is a time to share stories. He lights up when talking about his family, especially his grandkids. I’ve had the privilege to travel many miles with Brian, an enjoyable and always enlightening experience. His knowledge of people is amazing. We agree as Brian says “it’s a people business”. He seems to know everyone and certainly most everybody knows Brian. He remembers names and other details of those he has met. People are genuinely glad to see and visit with Brian. Whether at a field day on the east coast, at a packing plant in Ontario, at a show or sale in the West, an auction market or an industry convention anywhere in Canada, it’s all the same. One of Brian’s favorite events to attend are Bull Sales. He relates how you can do a huge number of farm/ranch visits in one stop. Whether purebred or commercial producer they are all together and that to Brian is the way it should be.

It’s also a time to enjoy great hospitality including a great meal. Brian and I share the delight of a great donut. We agree the Laura Brown’s donuts at any LLB sale are a must and while we are both of the age when we are told we should not partake, we also agree the at least one has to be enjoyed. While with the Canadian Angus Association Brian was a driving force in the establishing of the Breed Feeder Calf Sales which has become such a valuable component in the marketing for weaned calves. He worked with auction markets and commercial breeders to see this grow from start to success. Brian is comfortable in all sectors of the cattle industry. While representing Canadian Angus he became a real ambassador for the whole Canadian beef industry. He lived Angus but embraced the idea that all sectors should work together and that included all the different purebred breeds. He represented Canada as part of several International missions. He laughed as he shared the story of an international trade mission where the delegation was split up and he was tasked with not only giving presentations for all Canadian beef breeds but also dairy genetics. I bet he did his homework and did a great job. It’s not often, if ever that one has the privilege to meet, connect and in my case to travel with someone of the qualities of Brian Good. His respect for all. His knowledge. His perspective of all sectors of an industry. His commitment to family, friends and the industry. To quote one of Brian’s favourite sayings, “That’s just the way it is”. John Lee Chico Ranches Past CAA Board Member

} It is a great pleasure to recognize the career of Brian Good. A man of high character and integrity. Throughout his life, any job path he followed was graced with dedication and honesty. The Canadian Angus Association was very fortunate to have a man versed so well in the seed stock industry, but moreover a man that recognized the importance of the commercial cattle sector. Thank you Brian for all of the great advice and friendship over the years, and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

In the late 60’s and early 70’s Brian Good and his family at Black Browe Cattle sold cattle with Heatherbrook Farms in December in Lacombe at the Ag-Grounds and after the sale every year we would have a post sale party at the Henderson home three miles east of Lacombe. Brian was the lead guitar player and singer with the Good Brothers Band ! Something most fellow Angus Breeders won’t know! Brian would play music, sing and entertain the post sale party Crowd that would go most times till chore time the next morning! Brian is so talented at what ever he tried to do from breeding, fitting and marketing his own cattle to the work he did in the sales management world to international marketing. Then his outstanding job with the Angus Association. Brian you did a outstanding job for the Angus membership and made a real impact in the commercial cattle business promoting Angus Cattle, know one could have done a better job then you Brian! Jimmy Joe Henderson

}

As a young Angus enthusiast that was new on the scenes in the early 1980’s I was fortunate enough to meet Brian Good and tour the Black Browe cowherd. Even in his younger years Brian was a wealth of knowledge on cattle assessment and pedigrees. For me, it was an exciting day in 1982 when I was able to purchase Black Browe Eline 97L, a daughter of Bandolier of Eileenmere 4Y. As the prominent herd sire at Black Browe he was one of the most admired bulls in the breed and highly sought after by the top herds in the nation. Over the years Brian has remained one of the friendliest, most down to earth, honest and positive people I was ever fortunate enough to meet. The Canadian Angus industry was fortunate to have Brian as a representative and promoter of the breed for so many years and the Angus fraternity is in a much better place because of Brian’s efforts. Brian has always been one of those people that I am honoured to call my friend and I wish him nothing but happiness and health in his future endeavours. Byron Brandl Brandl Cattle Co.

All of us here at Ter-Ron Farms certainly always look forward to a visit with Brian. He always has a friendly "hello" and time for a chat. Rob especially remembers the "Dad Day" trip from the CJAA show in Armstrong, BC a few years back. Brian arranged a day trip to Douglas Lake Ranch, Quilchena, and a couple other local ranches for a few of the Dads. It was a great day!! Thank you for all your years of dedication to the promotion of the Angus breed. We look forward to seeing you down the road. Enjoy your Retirement! Rob & Maureen Adams & Family Terry & Sharon Adams Ter-Ron Angus, Forestburg, AB

I met Brian many years ago with Keith Coates when he worked for independent Breeders. We attended numerous events where he represented the Canadian Angus Association as their commercial field man. Brian became a respected advocate for both the commercial and purebred industries. He was revered for his practical approach to industry issues and his empowerment of commercial cattlemen. During the implementation of the Canadian Cattle Identification program Brian‘s support and voice for grass roots producers was integral to its success. I wish Brian the very best and hope he enjoys his retirement. He will certainly be missed by all sectors of the Canadian cattle industry.

} I first met Brian on the summer show circuit in 1969. We both worked for Shorthorn operations. Brian was with Boa-Kae Ranch, Berwyn and Leta Wise my aunt and I worked for Downsview Shorthorns my uncle Bud Boake and cousin Ed. Going to all the fairs through out the summer you got to know everyone. All though Brian's family farm was Black Browe Angus a few prominate Angus breeders today had Shorthorns such as Cudlobe; the Bolducs, Remital; the Latimers, Rannoch; the Hamiltons and the Mackenzie's at Mountainview, AB. Brian had a full show string of white Shorthorns that summer. Brian was as neat and tidy then as he is now. Cattle and stalls were always clean. We had one white heifer in our string and I couldn't keep her clean. The whole time Brian was with the Angus Association his truck was washed and clean and boots always polished. Brian helped me out a lot over the years, he and Jeff Groeneveld pushed me into having our first bull sale 24 years ago with Optimal Bovines Inc. then later with D.J. Henderson & Associates. He's helped source herd bulls and sell our bulls like he did with so many other producers. I always enjoyed road trips with Brian. We were siting in the bar on the hill at the Denver stock show and Brian notices a guy sitting a few tables down says “Jay that's Buck Owens". "Yeah could be" I said. Well Brian goes over and talks to him for at least 15 minutes - he's good at striking up a conversation. Comes back, "He said he's not Buck Owens". To this day we're still sure it had to be Buck Owens. Who else could it have been? I remember going to Black Browe for barbeque and Brian would play the guitar and brother Stan played the fiddle (played Buck Owens) good times. If it was a auction barn or some bull sale if I couldn't remember someone's name all I had to do was ask Brian he remembered everybody's name. Brian has made a connection with all our kids over the years and made them feel part of the cattle industry. Always boosting there confidence. Hope you have a great retirement Brian I know we'll miss you as our Angus representative and bringing Angus coffee cups to all the sales. Thanks for the memories. See you and Lynnanne down the road.

} When I was first asked to share some of my memories of working with Brian Good, I was initially a bit overwhelmed. Where to start? How many years had Brian dedicated to promoting the Angus breed in his role as a fieldman at CAA? The next time I see him I am going to get him to share with me some of the changes that he saw with both the breed and industry over those years. So I would like to begin by offering my heartfelt congratulations to Brian on his retirement. He was an always present and friendly face at so many of those sales and shows across Canada; someone who would always find time to talk with you and share some stories of what he encountered on his travels. One of my fondest memories of working with Brian is when Gary Smith and I were putting together a long-shot opportunity to ship cattle genetics into the modern-day Russia. With no import permit and little knowledge of what we would find, Alta Exports International organized a trip to Russia to explore this. Our delegation, including Brian, was made up of representatives from the other beef breed association and the Canadian agricultural industry. The delegation travel to Moscow, February 2004 with a delegation of 14 persons. That was a fun trip, and we sure learned a lot. There was great comradery amongst the delegation, and Brian certainly was teased for packing along duct tape and toilet paper! He also showed off some of his other talents, playing some of the great Stompin Tom Connors tunes at an evening gathering at a dachca in the country. That trip provided a great return on investment. Many thousands of embryos and cattle were shipped to Russia, and later, Kazakhstan. This was a blessing to many cattlemen across Canada to have a such a large market opened up during the BSE crisis. Alta Exports success in the Russian market was in part, achieved with the support of Brian. As the representative of the Canadian Angus Association, he helped us build the confidence and trust needed in Russia to be able to put these deals together.

Brian’s commitment, knowledge and promotion of the breed and the industry will be missed. However, I am certain that Brian is likely to show up at a few sales and shows just because, and I look forward to seeing him there! Kate Kolstad Wild Rose Global Exports formerly of Alta Exports International I appreciate the opportunity to say a few words about working with Brian, but really wish we could gather together to celebrate his Angus career and do a proper roast. We could have a lot of fun sharing stories. These might include travels with “Brian’s Angels”, debating how many Angus steaks were covered by his expense account, how much wine he had to drink trying to select an appropriate Angus wine, or how many trucks he ran through travelling from auction to auction. Actually, I do hope someone has calculated how many miles he put on his truck because the number would be impressive. I remember the day Brian sat in my office and I offered him the job of Angus Fieldman and how happy he was. He didn’t really say that he wanted the job, his comment was that his Dad would have been very happy. If his Dad had seen the commitment and effort Brian dedicated to the job, he would have been, beyond proud. Brian’s job description was to reach out to the commercial cattlemen and promote the value of Angus genetics. There’s no doubt he was successful but he never quite left his purebred roots behind and certainly extended his tours to a lot of purebred sales. Shortly after Brian started, Harry Haney, of Independent Breeders, asked me outright, “how much are you paying Good?”, then he quickly added, “no, that’s none of my business, but why are you paying him? He’s just doing what he’d be doing anyway except now he’s being paid to do it.” That may well have been true, but it’s also the reason Brian was so successful at his job, he was doing what he wanted and put his total commitment into it. Brian developed a great relationship with the livestock marketers and although he was paid to be the Angus face at the auction, he also became the purebred contact as well. There’s been a lot of miles and a lot of time spent promoting Angus cattle since Brian officially started. I suspect retirement just means slowing down a bit and only going to a few sales a week now. Hats off to you Brian. If we had managed to get your Angus wine project going, we would have been able to toast you properly. Enjoy the well earned retirement. Doug Fee Chief Executive Officer (1994 - 2011) - Canadian Angus Association

I’m not sure exactly just how long Brian has been involved with this breed of cattle but I’d dare to wager it rhymes with ‘Forever!’ His vast wealth of knowledge on the history of the breed has been enjoyed by all... some stories the colour varies as to how good of friends you are with him! I’ve always enjoyed talking with Brian about the older days of showing cattle... especially the tales of my Uncle Rod. Brian, you have certainly put in one hellava shift for this association and for this breed of cattle which you so much love. Thank you is simply not enough for everyone to say on the time you dedicated to helping advance this industry!! Bryan Mackenzie Brylor Ranch, Pincher Creek, AB

Some of Doug Haughton musings of Brian . . . Doug remembers back in the day when all Albertans of all breeds would stay at his families ranch on their way to show cattle at the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) in Vancouver, including Black Browe Angus - Brian’s family herd. There were many friendships that began then. As a result of relationships started way back when, Doug’s father began attending the Calgary Bull Sale which increased the familiarity of the Haughton family and seedstock breeders in Alberta. Brian and Doug became very good friends and travelled to several sales and other events together. Doug commented that Brian not only represented the Angus breed but the whole beef cattle business. Brian attended attended many BC Cattlemen’s Annual General Meetings and was present at special sales at Valley Auction Market and BC Livestock Producers auction markets. A regular attendee at the

Williams Lake Bull Sale, Brian would bring representatives with him from other breed associations, which was not only noticed, but appreciated. Doug said that he got to meet many people because of Brian and considers him one of his best friends, a fine gentleman and an honour to know. Doug Haughton, - Knutsford, BC

Canadian Angus Foundation Message Kirk Wildman, Canadian Angus Foundation Chair

It seems like every time I submit a report for the Foundation, we, as an industry, are facing another set of challenges. Whether it is dealing with adverse weather, political climate, the pandemic or the economy, something is always on the docket to challenge us. The old saying reads, “Grab on to the Angus cow’s tail and she will always pull you through”. I think that is right for the most part, but I think even stronger than the Angus Cow is our fraternity of Angus breeders. I am continually proud of the strength of our people, not only as breeders of superior Angus genetics, but as industry and community leaders. I think a huge part of our breed’s success in this country relates directly to our

breeders. We, as your Canadian Angus Foundation, have been proud to serve such a great group of people. The Building the Legacy Sale in late August saw a new online format this year and went quite well. Thanks to DLMS for hosting the sale and our Legacy Sale Committee for putting together an interesting and diverse sale offering. Of course, the sale could not happen without our generous donors and buyers. I am amazed by the support from our Angus fraternity in these challenging times. We hope to have a bigger and better Legacy Sale next year at the CAA Convention in the Maritimes! Our 2021 programming was adjusted to make the most of what we were able to do both in-person and virtually and recently we were able to award the Angus Roots scholarships for the top six intermediate aggregates at Showdown as well as the prizes for champion and reserve champion aggregates. Heifer vouchers were provided for three lucky Showdown exhibitors as well, and we are proud to announce the winners of the fall Junior membership draw heifer vouchers – congratulations to Layne Chantler, Egbert, ON, Grace Glover, Boissevain, MB and Karsen Van Sickle, Red Deer County, AB. These three juniors each have $2000 to spend on a heifer this fall.

This will be my last address as the Chair of the Foundation as Tammi Ribey will be taking over at the end of October. I have sat on numerous Boards with Tammi over the years and cannot think of a better candidate for the job! She is dedicated to the pillars of the Foundation and is a strong leader. My thanks go out to all the Directors I have worked with over the last number of years on the Foundation and the staff at the Canadian Angus Association. Special thanks go out to Executive Director, Belinda Wagner, for her dedication and service to the Foundation. Belinda is meticulous, organized, and is steadfast in getting tasks done on time. Those are traits I certainly don’t possess! Thanks Belinda, for taking all the musings and goofy thoughts from a self-professed idea guy and turning them into tangible benefits to our Foundation and its members and supporters. Thanks also to the many members that took my numerous calls over the years and never let the Foundation down. Kirk, Out

Canadian Junior Angus

Hello Juniors and Fellow Angus Breeders, I hope you had a good summer and are making enjoying these beautiful fall months. There are a few events to reflect on from the past couple of months and some exciting times ahead with the Canadian Junior Angus! We were able to host Showdown “Hybrid Style” in Olds, Alberta at the end of August. We want to thank all of our juniors who were able to attend and the sponsors for our show, as their support is greatly appreciated. It was great to have our junior angus family back together! We were able to award our

Naomi Best ~ President, Canadian Junior Angus CJA scholarships to three very deserving junior members; Keely Adams, Beverly Booth and Sarah MacDonald. A special congratulations goes out to the Canadian Angus Foundation heifer voucher recipients from Showdown as well – Hiller Gardner, Joran Frey and Will Rosso. We would like to thank Triple L Angus, the Tetzlaff family from Viscount, SK for donating the CJA scholarship heifer for 2021. The heifer will sell via dutch auction at the 50th Anniversary Sale at the Canadian Western Agribition on Friday November 26th. Proceeds from the sale of the heifer go directly to the CJA scholarship fund. If you have any questions on how to support us, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of the CJA Board of Directors. Our next major event; the annual GOAL Conference will be held in Toronto, Ontario February 19th-21st, 2022. As always there are some great speakers and activities lined up for everyone who attends. I highly encourage juniors to register for GOAL and for those who are further away we do have travel bursaries available. As a junior attending GOAL you will be able to take in some great knowledge from industry leaders as well as

Fall 2021 **

make connections with your fellow juniors from all across the country. Keep in mind that those who attend will be eligible to win a heifer voucher from the Canadian Angus Foundation. For our older members, mark in your calendar that January 5th is the deadline to apply for the Foundation Legacy Scholarship. The interviews, panel discussion and awards will take place at the GOAL Conference held in February. If you have any questions about any of these opportunities don’t hesitate to ask myself or any of the board members. We are also looking forward to hosting Showdown 2022 from July 27th to 29th in Brandon, Manitoba. I hope to see you all this fall or into the coming year whether it be at GOAL, Showdown or out and about at sales and events. Best regards, Naomi Best


Canadian Junior Angus Ambassador

Hello all! I hope that the transition into fall and back to school has gone smoothly and everyone is settling in to their new routines! It seemed that the past few months of summer flew by quickly, but they were jam packed with some awesome events! I am currently down in South Dakota attending school and the weather sure has been awesome (I think

Lexi Hicks ~ Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador

that I have seen more rain here in the past month than the past 3 years at home!), I have learned a lot in the first few months of classes and have had the opportunity to see some high-quality Angus cattle and meet the people behind them. I was extremely sad that I was unable to attend Showdown in Olds, AB this year for the “hybrid” version of this show. However, I have only heard great things about the show and that it was run smoothly so hats off and a big congratulations to the Canadian Junior Angus board for all of your efforts. I was able to attend the first day of the Alberta Junior Angus show in Bashaw, AB and it had an amazing turnout! It was good to see the barns filled with happy kids and cows from all over Alberta and Saskatchewan. I also had the opportunity to tune in and attend a few sessions of the virtual Canadian Beef Industry Conference at the end of August and learned a lot from some excellent speakers!

As fall is closing in on us, I can’t help but to feel excited. It truly is my favorite time of year as calves are being weaned off of the cows and coming home off pasture, as well as the start of the fall show and sale run. From what it looks like so far this fall show run isn’t going to be one that you are going to want to miss. The few shows that have already started earlier this month looked to have an excellent number of people show up and as always, the quality of cattle never seems to disappoint. I am hoping to make it up to the National Show at Canadian Western Agribition. I hope you all have a great fall and I look forward to visiting and meeting with everyone in the near future!

Hello Canadian Angus members and Angus cattle enthusiasts, this is my first report as you’re newly elected BC Angus President. BC Angus Association held their Annual General Meeting in Kamloops at BC Livestock Co-op on Saturday, September 11, 2021. As we continue to deal with Covid restrictions and Provincial Health Authority protocols, attendance for the AGM was approximately 30 attendees including those in attendance and those calling in via Zoom. BCAA President Jim Moon chaired the meetings and provided a Presidents year ending report. Canadian Angus BC Director Tom de Waal provided a verbal report updating attendees on CAA activities, programs and DNA testing. Tom spoke of the recent Bovine Expert Tracking Surveillance demo known as BETSY by One Cup AI Livestock ID

presented during the recent CAA Angus Extravaganza held in Balzac, Alberta. BETSY is a 360 ID platform for tracking and recording data such as; health, growth, activity, nutrition, ID tracking and many more herd health benefits. Watch for more on this exciting initiation and its potential breed improvement benefits. BC Junior Angus President Sarah MacDonald provided a virtual update referencing the Junior Association activities, including their future planning. Sarah thanked outgoing Junior Association members and welcomed new members. Three BC Junior members joined the AGM in person and multiple others were logged in on line. BCAA recognized the 2021 Angus influence Commercial Breeder of the Year, Allison Creek Ranch, Princeton, BC, owned and operated by Linda Allison and son Shelby. Election of Directors – BCAA members accepted outgoing President Jim Moon’s retirement after 23 years as a BCAA Director and two years serving as President. BCAA presented Jim with a gift in appreciation for his time, guidance and leadership provided throughout the many years. BCAA welcomes two newly elected directors Robyn Mumford of Alexis Creek, BC and Sue Gereau, Princeton, B.C. Previous directors, Todd Marchant and Robyn Burt were both re-elected for another term. BCAA Secretary / Treasurer; Carley Henniger is leaving her role with the association after serving admirably for five years. BCAA Directors presented Carley with a gift in appreciation for everything she has

Pandemic and drought, two words in most people’s vocabulary as of late. While the whole world is dealing with the pandemic, only the prairie provinces are faced with the drought and yet the drought is much more relevant to most of our households. For most cattlemen and rural areas the effects of the pandemic aren’t near as paramount as those of the drought. It is easy to social distance on the farm, while you are calving, seeding, breeding, harvesting and doing fall work. We have seen Mother Nature throw all sorts of curve balls at us this summer, extreme heat, no rain, tornados, frost and still no rain. Throughout the summer as I watched neighbors, family and friends haul water to pastures, constantly rotate pastures (in hopes of finding more grass or better water), cull earlier and more heavily, harvest very little Page 42

to no crops, there is still optimism. Everyone either talks about “loving what they do”, “living the dream” or “there is always next year”. Yes, it may be to mask the frustration, the stress, the concern, but I also believe it is still everyone’s passion, and that is to be involved in Agriculture, make a living at it and feed the world that is trying to survive the pandemic. Despite the drought and heat we did see a large turnout at the Saskatchewan Angus Tour in the Meadow Lake area in August. We were treated to great hospitality and excellent farm tours that presented a tremendous set of cattle at each host farm. We appreciate the time and effort that went into hosting and we would like to thank Lacey Brooks and her committee for organizing a top-notch event. If you have not yet had the opportunity to attend an Angus Tour or host, please put it on your calendar as a “must do”. There is no better way to socialize with fellow cattleman and look through great cattle with excellent hospitality. We are pleased to once again be working with the Lloydminster Exhibition to hold our Gold & Junior Show at Lloydminster Stockade Roundup November 3-6 and thank all involved in hosting, sponsoring, volunteering and exhibiting at Roundup and making it a great event. We are also excited to announce our 50th Anniversary plans for Canadian Western Agribition in November. The National Black and Red Angus Shows will be held on Thursday, November 25th, the Commercial Cattle Show on Friday, November 26th and the Bull Pen Alley Show on Saturday,

meant and done for the organization during that time. We all wish Carley well and thank her again for her loyalty and dedication. Carley will continue to serve the Association as the Junior Coordinator for the BC Junior Angus Association. BCAA welcomes Kristina Moller as the newly selected Secretary Treasurer. Kristina graciously accepted the position after a series of interviews was conducted by a selection committee of board members. Kristina was in attendance at the AGM. Welcome again Kristina. Please reach out to Kristina with any Angus related beefs or bouquets or simply to introduce yourselves. . The BCAA Board of Directors met immediately following the AGM to conduct their annual planning meeting and to elect an executive. Robyn Burt, Quesnel, BC was elected VicePresident and I was elected President. Robyn and myself, as well as the entire BCAA Board of Directors, vow to the membership that we will provide to the best of our knowledge and ability; positive leadership, direction and vision, all in a sound financial manner while we represent you the membership in these most important roles as BCAA Directors.

November 27th. As a special addition to Agribition and to commemorate the 50th Show, the Saskatchewan Angus Association will also be hosting a People’s Choice ‘Belle of the Ball’ Heifer Calf Jackpot on Friday afternoon followed by the 50th Anniversary Angus Sale in the John Deere Sale Arena. Our Show and Sale Committee and Anniversary Committee have been working hard on achieving a premiere event to mark this occasion. Please join us for fellowship and hospitality. The Saskatchewan Angus Masterpiece Sale will be hosted by First Class Cattle Marketing and will be an online sale December 13th and 14th on DLMS Farm Gate. Check out the lots in this sale and consider joining in for the closing of the sale. We are planning to gather for some fellowship and Christmas cheer at Hollinger Land & Cattle the afternoon and evening of December 14th and all are invited to join us there! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the board and Belinda for their support and extra effort in working through the hoops of hosting Zoom meetings, in person meetings and the commitment to put on events during the Pandemic. It offers challenges to all of us. Here’s wishing everyone a great fall filled with moisture in whatever form it arrives! Michelle Potapinski

Ontario Angus Association

Greetings from Ontario. As we continue to battle through the grips of Covid and the changes and restrictions it has placed on our lives and daily schedules, we can generally be thankful that we live and work in rural areas where there are chores, crops and responsibilities to get us outside and to maintain routines, challenges and opportunities that are close to normal. We can also be thankful that technology has advanced to the current stage to allow us to communicate and virtually meet with our families, friends, neighbours and business associates. In thinking about things to be grateful for let us

Maritime Angus Association has been working the best it can to provide some of the programming that we used to do back in the old days of 2019 . . . Prince Edward Island was able to host a pasture tour with co-hosts Dixon Farms

not forget our health care workers and system. Ontario generally had more precipitation than normal in 2021 and although that created some challenges, we all agree that too much moisture is a better situation than too little. As a result, for the most part, there are ample feed supplies for livestock in Ontario with limited pockets to the contrary. We are definitely aware of those who have and are suffering drought conditions and can only imagine the resulting stress and worry let alone those who may have had a wild fire jeopardizing their property. In 2021 Ontario has transferred our website to join the Canadian site similar to other jurisdictions across Canada and we are pleased that we took this step and the results to date. We believe it will allow our website information to be easily found and to be more current and up to date. There were certainly many fairs and local exhibitions cancelled again this year but a few associations and private individuals or businesses made significant efforts to procure approvals and meet protocols to organize shows for the beef industry and there was excellent participation from the Angus breeders and youth. This included the Ontario Juniors who held a successful Junior Show during the summer and the opportunity to have a Gold Show for 2021 in conjunction with the recent Fall Finale event in Lindsay. We extend our thanks to those associations and

be joining forces to combine two of the longest running purebred Sales in Canada. This was a near unanimous decision by the consignors of both breeds to make this event happen. We have yet to make a decision on how we will go about hosting our annual meeting, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated on whether it be in person or by zoom.

people that made this very special effort to make these shows happen this year. The Ontario Directory is produced every three years and 2021 was directory year. The new directory looks great and is available and has been mailed to our membership. If you want a directory contact our Ontario secretary at sectretaryontarioangus@gmail.com Our annual Futurity Sale is scheduled for early November and this sale has provided a great opportunity for both consignors and buyers of great quality Angus genetics. We also look forward to hosting the Angus National Show at the Royal Winter Fair in the fall of 2022. Our 2020 award recipients were selected back in the spring but due to Covid there has not been an appropriate opportunity to present these awards but it will happen. We take this opportunity to publicly congratulate the recipients being 2020 Honourary president-Richard and Mary Tanner, Oaklane Farms; 2020 Purebred Breeder – JPD Angus and 2020 Commercial Producer – Ken and Nancy Mills. In closing, we extend best wishes and good health to our fellow breeders and citizens across Canada. Don

and Alberia Farms. Les Halliday presented on the value of utilizing genomics in the commercial herd. Additionally Nova Scotia hosted a Gold Show at the Heritage Classic Beef show in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Angus swept the Supreme Championship (JEM Farms specifically swept) with their Champion Angus Female JEM Flora 20F going on to be Supreme Champion Female and JEM Colossal 41H earning Supreme Champion Male after winning Champion Angus Male in the breed division. Colossal also went on to win the Angus Division and Reserve Supreme Male at the New Brunswick Beef Expo Gold Show that occurred in Sussex a few weeks later. JEM Farms won the Supreme Division in the females at Beef Expo as well, but with JEM Bluebell 48H who topped the Angus Female Division the day before. It was very nice to get back out to see everyone in the show ring again after a little hiatus. In August, the Maritime Junior Angus hosted their own

virtual Extravaganza with a Photo Contest (Senior Division Winner- Abby Falconer; Junior Division- Anna Long; and Pee-Wee Division- Konor Younker), a Tik-Tok Challenge (Sr Division- Abby Falconer; Junior Division- Anna Long; Pee Wee Division- Konor Younker) and a virtual Conformation Class which was judged by Sheldon Kyle (Junior Division- Anna Long; Pee Wee Division- Konor Younker). We thank the membership for being involved as we attempt to adjust programming to fit things. We are looking forward to hosting a Convention in June 2022 in Moncton. While event planning has certainly be a challenge, it will be worth the headaches once we are able to get together! The organizing committee is keen to be able to put on a great event. And that's all from the Maritimes at this time, take care all!
