VIEWPOINT By ASA Trustee Dale Miller, Gildford, MT This being my last Viewpoint as an ASA Trustee, it is somewhat emotional. The last seven years in this role have been so rewarding to me and my wife, Paula. From the first meeting, when she was wondering why she was even going to some “boring cattle meeting”, she became as much a Trustee as I did. Her acceptance and “fun times” with the other Trustee wives, was the highlight of every time we got together. The friendships we have made over these past seven years will never be forgotten. From this, I encourage all members to get involved and put in your time as a Trustee. The accomplishments and improvements to the cattle industry over this time have also been a highlight, with the THANKS of ASA and all their staff; I think we are all set to plunge into the future of this business. Thanks to dedicated Trustees for the direction needed to stay ahead of the future needs of the beef cattle world. As I write this Viewpoint, I am learning of Wade’s need to have a heart valve repaired. Wishing him and Kathy all the best and a speedy recovery. As we do need him back at the helm! A couple years ago when Pennsylvania hosted the first traveling Fall Focus, producers in other areas of the country had a

September 2017

chance to meet ASA staff face-to-face and participate in educational workshops and the Board meeting. Paula and I met a couple from Pennsylvania, Arnie and Linda McClure. A few days ago, in the midst of our busy harvest they dropped by for a visit while traveling across Montana. They spent a bit of time on the combines, asking questions and seeing a bit of our lifestyle. The visit also included a tour of our bull calves and some of our brood cows, at least the ones closest to the harvest field, as we were very busy. (Sorry, Arnie, that we didn’t have more time to give back the great hospitality you showed us in Pennsylvania, but hope you and Linda got some idea of our lives.) What a great visit we had as they stopped by on their way across this great land we call America and home — a friendship born from a shared interest and love of Simmental cattle. We would like to urge all of you and your neighbors to join us in North Dakota in a few weeks for another Fall Focus event. I guarantee you will learn something and maybe even make a friend or two. As I come to the end of my tenure on the ASA Board of Trustees, I want to thank you for the privilege and honor of serving you in this capacity. Not only do Simmental breeders have cattle we can be proud of, our Association is the finest in the cattle industry. A huge thank-you to our staff for their commitment to helping us in every way possible. ◆

MAIL BAG Dear Editor: I met Don Burnham at Montana State College in 1960 when I pledged Signa Nu Fraternity. Don had already graduated with a degree in Animal Science and I was enrolled in Animal Science, so Don Vaniman we had much in common. Don lived his life by the Creed of Sigma Nu: “To Believe in the Life of Love, To Walk in the Way of Honor, To Serve in the Light of Truth.” This is the way Don lived his entire life. I owe Don quite a debt of gratitude, because after I returned from serving 3½ years in the military, I was a ranch manager on a ranch in the Bitterroot. Don called and said I should interview for the Executive Secretary position that had just come up with the Montana Beef Performance Association, in Bozeman. Performance Testing Beef cattle was just beginning to become the modern way to breed beef cattle because all the genetic traits had known heritability levels. These came from 30 years of measuring cattle genetics at the Miles City Research Station. I interviewed and won the position, which gave me an excellent background when I interviewed several years later for the first full time job as Executive Secretary of the American Simmental Association. Don was one of the first Montana cattlemen to artificially inseminate over 300 cows to Simmental. Don’s fatherin-law was an Angus man and he did not think much of his son-in-law using this untried, expensive AI Don was not only throwing good money away with frozen semen, but breeding to an unproven, unknown, foreign milk and draft breed from Switzerland and/ or France. However, after Bardy witnessed the first half blood Simmental heifer sell for $3,500 in Great Falls, his respect for Don increased greatly. Don was a founding member of both the American Simmental and the Montana Simmental Associations. Don was also very active in the World Simmental Federation by having cattle tours at his ranch and attending many of their meetings all over the world.

September 2017

There were no color restrictions from the beginning and Don was one of t he first “Purebred Breeders” (through upgrading) to breed a Black, Polled Simmental Bull. He accomplished his goal and his Prickly Pear Ranch became famous for producing the first Black Polled Purebred Simmental Bull in the breed. Don named that bull the “Ace Of Spades.” His semen sales were very successful. After the bull died, Don had his penis made into a cane, and would show it off to all the ladies, saying “Believe it or not, but this ‘cane’ produced millions of dollars worth of semen.” Don supported Simmental wherever he went. He never complained. He lived to tell everyone how the Simmental breed got started in the United States. He was a big supporter of the 4-H and FFA programs helping youth learn about cattle breeding. Don loved his family and was always there for them. Sincerely, Don Vaniman Editor’s Note: The above letter is a personal reflection of Don Vaniman’s 57-year relationship with Don Burnham. See page 108 of this issue for a summary of Burnham’s career as a breeder of Simmental cattle.

A Lasting Friendship

COW SENSE


All inthe Family By Emme Troendle

After retiring, a Colorado man jumps headlong into the cow business with his son.

SimAngus™ bulls.

eter Reardon of Montrose, Colorado, spent the majority of his working career as a certified financial planner, developing an asset management company in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the time of his retirement in 2001, Reardon and his late wife, Inis, moved back to Colorado and eventually partnered with their son on a heavily integrated cattle and hunting outfit. “I was born into a hunting and fishing family in Texas,” he recalls. “We moved to Southwestern Colorado in 1959, where my dad and grandfather purchased a ranch. We ran 250 Hereford cows. The ranch was my entire life in high school, and I really wanted to get back to that”. Reardon earned a doctorate in veterinary medicine, and practiced for ten years. “When I was in college, the beef industry tanked, and my father ended up selling the ranch the year that I graduated. I was on my way to becoming a practicing veterinarian, and I ended up in the Phoenix metro area,” Reardon explained. “We spent 30 years in Arizona and raised our family there.”

10

September 2017

Eventually, Reardon sold the veterinary practice and established a career in the financial services industry. When he moved back to Colorado after retiring, Peter and Inis started an organic truck farm in Chimney Rock, where they planted 2,500 fruit trees, raised and sold fruit and vegetables. At the end of 2011, they sold their organic farm and moved to Montrose, closer to Daniel, their youngest of three children. Daniel approached his dad about starting a cattle operation. In early 2013, they purchased six high-quality, unregistered Red Angus cows. While looking at land, the hunting potential of many of the properties encouraged them to acquire a 2-section area in the mountains for summer grazing and elk hunting. They subsequently acquired an 88 acre farm outside of Montrose for winter grazing and hay production. “Buying these six cows compelled us to look at the market and decide what platform we wanted to be on. My son went down the black Angus pathway because he liked what he saw in that market, and, in the next year, purchased 20 registered females.” Peter states, “When I looked at the business opportunities, I liked what I saw in the Simmental industry for upside potential.” Today, Peter runs 35 registered Simmental and SimAngus™ cows alongside Daniel, who runs 75 registered Black and Red Angus cows. Running R Beef is an expanding operation, as Peter further explains, “We are growing into the feed capacity of our hay ground and mountain grazing. We put up enough hay for wintering our cow herd.”


Simmental and Performance Driven Running R Beef currently markets their yearling bulls private treaty, with a goal to grow, and develop a joint family bull sale. Peter and Dan plan to sell 45 to 60 top-end EPD seedstock Simmental, and SimAngus bulls by 2019. To accomplish this, Peter uses sexed semen with the goal of marketing at least 20 to 25 Simmental influenced bulls every year. Reardon admits that his breeding program often detours from the popular, more conventional path, “We have at least four different AI dates, and that means four different dates of synchronization. We AI to purebred Simmentals, but I want that cow settled when she comes into heat the first time, so the next day, I stick our registered Angus bulls in with the cows that are bred AI.” The focus of the operation is to set up a solid genetic foundation for the replacement females as well as the yearling bulls. To ease calving and breeding management, Running R Beef pushes their calving dates forward, even if it means pasture exposure over AI. Peter states, “The single biggest thing that I am looking for in my breeding program is heterosis. Bull buyers are looking for a calf that gets up, no matter what, and starts nursing. I want calves that show vigor and get going early.” When making selection decisions, Peter appreciates a balance between phenotype and EPDs. He concentrates on five EPDs that are the most important to his herd. He weights the characteristics and assigns mathematical values to each of them and develops his own, proprietary index. He then calculates index totals for the top bulls at a sale and compares them phenotypically before making a final selection. Peter believes that the heterosis in SimAngus not only affects his customers’ cattle performance, but also the cattle industry as a whole, “As a veterinarian, I have waded into snow to look at too many calves in snow drifts that won’t get up and go. I am not going to talk breeds down, but when you breed cattle in a linear fashion, you get genetic suppression. You rarely see a heterotic calf not perform down the line. I feel hybrid vigor is important from calving to the feed bunk. Same for the productivity of females, and the viability of those cows in the herd.”

Latterly Integrated In the summertime, Peter and Dan push their cow-calf pairs up the mountains onto their hunting ground, and when hunting season comes, they move the cattle around to keep them out of the

way of the hunters. Daniel runs the hunting outfit, Rocking R Elk and Cattle, specializing in archery elk hunts, and he also rents out the lodge for special events, such as weddings and family reunions. On average, 60 hunters are guided each year. Their business has been generated primarily by word of mouth and on-line. “We have a latterly integrated approach to the cattle operation. My son and his wife, Katie, lease the lodge in the summertime for family retreats, weddings, and in August, the hunters use the cabins on guided hunts that Daniel leads,” Peter says. In the beginning of October, Peter and his son gather the cattle from the high country, and move them back down to the lower paddocks to wean the calves. Reardon points out the weaning weight differences between his Simmental influenced calves and other calves on the mountain. “When my calves come off the mountain, they will weigh 100 pounds more than other breeder’s cattle. My son also gets pretty competitive about weaning weights because he breeds with high quality Angus genetics and early coordinated, predicted calving dates. When our calves come off the hill, our calves are just bigger — they weigh more.” The cattle graze during the summer at an elevation around 8,000 to 10,000 feet, and in the fall, they are brought back down the ranch to about 5,000 feet. With the high altitude comes the risk of High Mountain Disease (HMD), also known as Brisket Disease or Dropsy. It is the result of elevated pulimary arterial pressure caused from a lack of oxygen and generally affects cattle raised at 5,000 feet or higher. HMD is not limited to one sex or breed of cattle, but can be tested through a pulmonary arterial pressures (PAP) score. (Continued on page 12)

All In The Family (Continued from page 11)

Peter has all his yearling bulls PAP tested, he explains, “If you read the literature on HMD, it is extremely rare in Simmental. Which is another selling point for the bulls in this region. They are naturally resistant to this disease.” In the last four years, Peter acknowledges that he and his son have made great strides toward a successful cattle operation and hunting outfit, but he admits that most of their success is following in the footsteps of other successful breeders, “I am just a little guy. I have a great respect for the people in our industry that have been doing it for 20, 30, or 40 years because they are good at what they do. All I can try to do is follow the research, find out how the good guys are doing it, and emulate them the best I can. I am not that creative, but I am a pretty diligent researcher.”

September 2017

The Heart of it All Back in 2013 when Daniel and Peter were first getting their cattle business started, Peter lost Inis, his wife of 50 years. He credits three major influences that have supported him during his time of lose: his family and friends, his writing career, and the cattle operation. Peter and Inis are the parents of three married children with seven grandchildren, Jennifer and Jim, with their children, Halee and Hayden live in La Mesa, California; Jill and Chris are the parents of Christopher, Jane, and August, Moraga, California; and Daniel and Katie are proud parents of Nolan and Lyla, living just down the road from Peter. When Peter first went to college in the mid-1960s, all the electives he took were in the liberal arts. He jokes that his writing skills, not his scientific achievements, got him into veterinary school, “With vet school being competitive in those days, they were only taking 60 students out of four to five thousand applicants, most of whom couldn’t complete a sentence, but were strong on the sciences. I had a game plan of staying with the other, so all my electives were in creative writing and philosophy.” In July, Peter went back to school to get a master of fine arts in creative writing, where he focuses on the genre of romance fiction. He laughs, “Being married for 50 years you get to know everything in the book when it comes to romance. Writing has been a great outlet.” Focusing on the cattle helped Peter move past losing his wife and life partner, he says, “I know it sounds funny, but I used my brain and the cattle business as my motivation to rehabilitate myself after my wife passed away.” Reardon focused on the research side of the cattle operation, becoming acquainted with new methods and practices since he retired from veterinary practice. Peter concludes, “The key to the cattle business is to produce more steaks and better steaks. I am completely convinced that you need a better cow to do this. Every time you introduce a little hybrid vigor with a SimAngus bull, or some other concept, I think you’re adding to the gene pool. Simmental people embrace this concept and they are right! Other breed associations shun outside genetic influences, and I think that’s a mistake. I’m interested in the best cow I can produce, not the purest.” ◆


BIF Annual Meeting The Beef Improvement Federation’s Annual Meeting drew a strong contingent of Simmental members. By Emme Troendle

The American Simmental Association had a very prominent role at the Beef Improvement Federation’s (BIF) Annual Meeting and Research Symposium, held May 31 to June 3, in Athens, Georgia. The 2017 event was co-hosted by the University of Georgia and the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association and was attended by more than 360 producers, geneticists and allied industry professionals. • Dr. Matt Spangler, Associate Professor and Extension Beef Genetics Specialist at the University of Nebraska, was given a BIF Continuing Service Award. Spangler is a scientific contributor to International Genetic Solutions (IGS). He works alongside a team at the US Meat Animal Research Center (MARC), Clay Center, NE, to improve genetic selection tools and methods. He is also currently part of an effort funded by the USDA to develop genomic predictors for feed efficiency in beef cattle. • Dr. Dorian Garrick, Theta Solutions LLC, was presented the 2017 Pioneer Award for his dedication to improving the accuracy of predicted genetic and phenotypic merit using high-density genomic information. Garrick, former professor at Iowa State University, and Bruce Golden, CEO of Theta Solutions, are the creators of BOLT, International Genetic Solutions’ genetic evaluation software. • Dr. Mahdi Saatchi, ASA and IGS Lead Genomicist, was selected to lecture on the development of the genomics pipeline for the IGS BOLT genetic evaluation during BIF. Saatchi, also an Affiliate Professor for Iowa State University, has been instrumental in the development of the IGS genomics database and many key developments in the advancement of genomics as a whole.

• Donnell Brown, RA Brown Ranch, Throckmorton, Texas, was elected to a one-year term as BIF president. Brown, whose father, Rob, served as one of the early presidents of the American Simmental Association, has been active in Simmental breed since his youth. Brown displayed leadership qualities at a very young age, as he led a team of fellow Texans to the Summer Classic team championship on several occasions, and then transitioned to the national presidency of Future Farmers of America (FFA). He is a graduate of Texas Tech University, and is among the sixth generation of his family to work the Brown operation. He has appeared frequently as a presenter at various ASA educational programs. Today, the performance-oriented Brown Ranch runs SimAngus™, Red Angus, Angus and composite cattle, plus registered Quarter Horses. • Dr. Lauren Hyde currently serves as ASA’s representative on the BIF board. Hyde, of Keenesburg, Colorado, is the lead geneticist for ASA’s groundbreaking IGS program. Other members of the 20-member board who have longstanding ties to Simmental cattle are: Past BIF president, long-time ASA employee, and owner of Allied Genetic Resources, Marty Ropp, Normal, Illinois; Dr. Bob Weaber of Kansas State University, former ASA Director of Performance Programs; Craig Bieber, Bieber Red Angus Ranch, Leola, South Dakota, who uses Simmental in the Bieber Ranch’s crossbreeding program; and Joe Mushrush, Mushrush Red Angus, Strong City, Kansas, who also utilizes SimGenetics for crossbreeding. ◆

Pathway to Profit Step inside the IGS Feeder Profit Calculator™ By Chip Kemp

Editor’s Note: In the 2017 July/August Issue of the Register, Kemp wrote an article titled: The 60’s, Jumbo Jets, Dad’s Toolbox and Humility, where he discussed the history behind IGS’s Feeder Profit Calculator.

Chip Kemp, Director of Membership and Industry Operations

IGS Homepage

Recently, we visited about the history and inception of the revolutionary IGS Feeder Profit CalculatorTM and its role in providing true awareness of feeder calf profit potential. In this article, we are going to walk through the simple and straight forward process of getting an IGS Feeder Profit Calculator certificate generated on a specific set of calves. The first step is to get to the IGS website. You can either use the IGS link at the top of Simmental.org or you can go directly to InternationalGeneticSolutions.com. The IGS Feeder Profit Calculator link can be found in the upper right-hand corner. The second step will take you to the input form. Complete the form and submit that information for certification. You will provide contact and location information, weaning and herd health specifics, marketing weights and timelines, and of course registration numbers on sires. It is possible that staff will reach out seeking additional information, but roughly three business days following your submission you will receive an email providing you a digital copy of your IGS Feeder Profit Calculator certificate. Now it is time to interpret the information on your certificate. On the left side of the certificate will be all information provided by the producer. This gives confidence and knowledge to a potential buyer, knowing you are hanging your credibility on

the details you provided. The buyer is able to quickly gauge your management and health practices that built value into this set of calves. The lower right-hand side of the certificate focuses in on five categories that are crucial to feedlot and carcass success. The star metrics reflect the ranking of your calf genetics versus the IGS database. The upper right portion of the certificate is the true foundation and core of the IGS Feeder Profit Calculator. Using the largest genetic database in the industry and some of the elite minds in the business we have leveraged known genetics, herd health, current economic conditions, and basic accounting principles to provide the most robust indicator of feedlot profit potential to date. It breaks it down to a language we all understand — dollars and cents. Frankly, feedlot buyers want to know if a set of calves has a reasonable chance to turn a profit.

An example of a certificate.

Three measures are highlighted on the certificate: Relative Genetic Value: Predicted difference in value due to genetics between the calves being evaluated and the average Angus calves of the same sex, starting weight and management conditions. Relative Management Value: Predicted difference in value due to management between the calves being evaluated and those same calves under the assumption of an industry average of 60% of calves being vaccinated against BRD and 60% of calves being weaned for 30 days or more. Total Relative Value: A combination of Relative Genetic Value and Relative Management Value. (Continued on page 18)

Pathway to Profit — IGS Feeder Profit Calculator™ (continued from page 16) When evaluating each of the relative value categories it is important to be aware that the average in each category is zero. A $0.00/cwt means these calves reflect the breakeven potential of the average calf. There is no artificial adjustment to the base just for marketing advantage or to provide a feel-good effect. You expect the truth and the facts. So do your customers and your buyers. On the example certificate provided, we predict a breakeven price (at the time they are sold as feeder calves) based on their predicted feedlot performance of an additional $9.84/cwt. In laymen’s terms, that means the buyer at your local auction market or through your online platform could afford to pay an extra $9.84/cwt over the average

animal on that day and still come out breaking even. To be clear, the buyer isn’t looking at these calves to break even. Like you, the buyer has an eye on profit. But in this example the buyer has true awareness, through IGS, that leads him to believe these calves are a safer bet. So is he looking to pay an additional $9.84/cwt? No. Is he willing to give $2, $3 or $4 more on a safe bet rather than risking everything? We think he is. Additionally, a second page highlighting all registration numbers and known genetics accompanies each certificate. It is really that simple. And you won’t pay a thing. Roughly 20 minutes of work will provide you with the most credible and trusted information available on the potential feedlot performance of your calves. Trust is the Gold Standard. Your success is wrapped up in the value of each year’s calf crop. You’ve invested years, significant dollars, and countless hours of sweat to get the calves to this point. Why leave calf knowledge to chance? You can either Know or Guess. Choose Know. ◆

PTP Shows Contribute to Our Success Contributors: Steve Reimer, Curt Rincker, Marty Ropp, Jerry Lipsey

Editor’s Note: In response to numerous inquiries about the “PTP Shows Contribute to Our Success” series originally published in 2013, we are updating and republishing this four-part series, which began with the July/August issue and continuing in the September, October, and November issues of the Register.

Evaluating and Emphasizing Muscle and Fat in Shows. This is an ongoing discussion of the possibilities of show ring selections impacting the beef industry popularity of SimGenetics. There is widespread consensus that selection for show winners decades ago had long lasting, near disastrous impacts on Simmental and Simbrah beef industry demand. Consequently, leaders of the American Simmental Association established PTP Shows in an effort to provide judges and audiences with information crucial to SimGenetic seedstock marketing success. Since the first PTP Shows of the early 1990s, comments by both spectators and exhibitors always include, “the judge spent all day with his head buried in the paper,” to “those judges paid no attention to the numbers.” We doubt if the controversy will ever end; however, there seems to be less debate in recent years that soundness, size, and composition (the conformation of exhibited cattle) are now days, more industryfriendly. Part I focused on skeletal soundness. Positioning SimGenetics as the mostvaluable Continental maternal seedstock source meant we had to account for every EPD that impacts cowherd profits. ASA’s All Purpose Index ($API) does that. It is imperative to use an economic index to measure the

genetic contributions to cowherd worth if we are to convince the cattle producers of this nation that Simmental influence will improve their financial success. In Part I in this series, we tried to evaluate if show ring emphasis on skeletal soundness traits had any impact on our downstream customers’ vision of SimGenetic value. This time, we explore how muscling and fatness impacts exhibition success, and if show ring trends are friendly to future beef business demand for Simmental genes. Our role is to produce better food; obviously we eat beef, which is a perfect combination of muscle and fat. Ideally, our industry will produce great tasting beef with just the right amount of intramuscular fat and minimal external waste fat. We have already committed to improving our cattle maternally. Many believe this position means we do not prioritize carcass traits, which is not true. If we plan for more and more US cows to benefit from Simmental genetics, our reputation for contributing to both cowherd profit and ideal carcasses must be unquestioned. The ASA Carcass Merit Program (CMP) is among the best of all breeds. From CMP and member ultrasound data, ASA produces some of the most accurate Backfat, Marbling and Ribeye EPDs in genetic evaluation history. So, where does that put show ring evaluations and comments on maintaining and improving maternal and carcass traits? Let’s talk fat first: Certainly, visual fatness is more management-driven than the environmental factors that affect muscling. Variation of nutrition, health, weather, and animal age differences make for potentially huge variation in condition (fatness) of both bulls and heifers. Since there is massive fat accumulation in the bovine lower body, we wonder if comments concerning depth-of-rib aren’t more fat-driven than real differences in skeletal dimensions. In any event, we have experienced many years of seemingly preferential placement/preference for deeper bodied, and perhaps, fatter Simmental influenced cattle.


It’s imperative that we digress a moment and think about the fat accumulation consequences of reproductive cattle vs. finished cattle producing Select, Choice and Prime carcasses. Science has proven that proper management resulting in cow condition scores 5 and 6 makes for higher pregnancy rates than cows with scores of 4 or less (condition scores higher than 6 do not improve preg. rates). On the other hand, if we are ever to produce 70% Choice and 70% YG 2 carcasses, we have to control carcass backfat. Is there a clear-cut relationship between breeding animal fatness and carcass fatness? Of course, there is a relationship if the animals (heifers or bulls) are birth contemporaries. For more than 20 years, breed association databases proved that information from ultrasounded contemporary bulls and heifers provide powerful influences on our carcass EPDs. In the same environment, animals with more “carcass fat genes” nearly always get fatter than those with less geneticdrive to fatten. Essentially, every breed association uses ultrasounded contemporaries to produce carcass EPDs. So, how can SimGenetics have it both ways, that is, pragmatic body fat storage in breeding animals and industry-leading finished cattle carcass yield grades? Using deductive reasoning, feed and forages are expensive, the most costly item of cowherd enterprises. All of us would like to use these precious resources efficiently, and judges often comment on and seem to prefer easy-keeping qualities. We assume that judges are taking the perspective that all the animals in the class have had access to similar nutrition and environment; subsequently, judges perceive the fatter ones as easier keepers. But is this true? Not necessarily. Fatter cattle could just be individuals that ate more (hence, no more efficient), grew in a more comfortable environment, or simply offered more feed by owner-exhibitors in order to attract judges to deeper bodied cattle with copious external fat deposits? This appeal for fatter show females assumes they get and stay pregnant easier, i.e. they are easier to keep in condition scores 5 or 6 through all kinds of weather. But, how do judges decide if cattle are too lean or too fat. If you think this is confusing, it is! The most-proven genetics for Simmental maturecow reproduction (fertile longevity) are contained in Stay EPDs. The most important genetics for backfat and yield grade are constantly presented in the ASA Carcass EPDs.

Since more than 40,000 carcasses and 100,000 ultrasounds have contributed to the accuracy of ASA EPDs, effectiveness of genetic selection for carcass traits strongly favors EPDs over visual evaluation of one animal in the show ring; even though we contend muscularity is reasonably assessed by conformation (you’ll read this later). Since nearly all the animals in show ring classes are non-contemporaries, visual evaluation for genetic fatness in shows is very questionable. Stay EPD is a much more powerful predictor of cow fertile longevity than show ring external fat. A note before we move on to the subject of muscularity. We occasionally hear judges criticize obese animals, typically heifers. For decades, animal husbandry has documented reduced milk and reproduction resulting from over-fattening. In addition, cow condition scores over 6 do not result in increased pregnancy rates. Clearly, there is a law of diminishing returns relative to cow fatness and how much judges should prioritize “easy-keeping” heifers. The position of SimGenetics’ role in crossbred cows is a “tight-wire act”. Somehow, we must provide cow-genetics that easily accumulate enough fat for cow condition scores 5 and 6; yet, advance our reputation for superior carcass yield grades in their carcass progeny. Is visual evaluation for muscling effective? There’s every reason to discuss muscling differences in meat animals. By preferentially growing muscle vs. fat or bone, we can greatly influence the efficiency of producing a great tasting, protein-rich food. Carcass yield grades are reasonably good indicators of percentage muscle in market animals, and ribeye area is most commonly used to measure differences in muscle thickness. Similar to our comments on managing carcass fat, the thousands of carcasses resulting from the ASA Carcass Merit Program provide the solid foundation for ASA’s carcass trait EPDs. If modifying carcass traits is the goal, no information source rivals our EPDs. So, what does that leave for muscling evaluation in shows? Bull and heifer muscularity, evaluated in terms of body shape, is not as strongly affected as fatness by environmental differences. Likely, judges do a good job of detecting muscularity, so the question is, are we having any impact on genetics for muscling through PTP Shows? Simmental genetic trend for REA has been steeply positive since 1990, and PTP Shows were initiated then. So, isn’t it logical to assume the PTP concept had something to do with the trend for greater muscularity? Contrary to that notion, PTP Show printed programs have seldom provided REA EPDs, so judges had little chance to make decisions from our database information. In addition, over the same years, Angus and Hereford genetic trends for REA are just as positively steep as Simmental, and they did not routinely use genetic data in shows. The best conclusion is that in the early 1990s, seedstock producers intensified visual selection for muscularity. Our industries apparently decided the 80s commonly used term, “late maturing, long muscled”, was not effectively advancing meat production, and we began to focus on improving muscle shape. There’s proof this was not just a show ring function. The ASA CMP didn’t produce progeny carcass data impacting EPDs until 1999, but our genetic trend for REA EPD was clearly intensified by then. Clearly, SimGenetic producers were using visual appraisal for sire selection, and this wasn’t just a show ring function. If you review historic sires that had great influence on “performance cattle”, most had significantly positive REA EPDs. Visual appraisal for muscling in seedstock is effective, and it is extremely effective when combined with EPDs. (Questions and Answers found on page 24) September 2017

PTP Shows Contribute to Our Success

Question: In the same context, how do you decide if an animal is too shallow, just right, or too deep bodied? Does fatness impact your evaluations?

(Continued from page 21)

Questions and Answers: Question: How do you decide if an animal (in the show ring) has too little or too much condition? Do you treat bulls vs. heifers equitably in terms of fat evaluations? Reimer: Determining the amount of condition on cattle in the showring is obviously done by keying on external fat deposition. Areas like the brisket, topline, tailhead and udder on females are the most pronounced indicators. If you can readily see that extra condition in those areas, they are too heavily conditioned and if the spinal process is visible, they are too lean. I do feel it’s more critical for females than bulls because problems with female reproductive performance caused by internal fat deposition can be very detrimental to longevity. Rincker: Fat will layer from front to back and from the upper rib to the lower rib, so the overly fat cattle will show fat first in the brisket and in the upper rib, and may be deemed overly conditioned when it is visibly detected in the lower rib, and going back into the pins, udder, and cod, in case of steers. Apparent openness of rib and hardness to the top typically indicate a lack of proper conditioning. While we may want breeding cattle to all be in that “ample condition” range, bulls will typically be shown with slightly less fat and condition than females due to a faster gain and the presence of testosterone. Ropp: First, look in the places where fat is deposited and easiest to see, i.e. the brisket, flank, around the tail head etc. Then the disproportionate appearance of width of body behind the shoulder and over the top is a good indicator as well. Finally, handling an animal over the ribs along the loin edge and in the flank can give you a very good idea of fatness if necessary to do so. It is not particularly difficult to decide whether and animal has .2 inches of backfat, .5, .8 or more. The difference of opinion comes when you make a value judgment based on fat being insufficient, optimal or excessive.

September 2017

Reimer: Balance is an important factor in skeletal design and determining ideal body depth. I don’t think there is a formula to determine too little, too much or just right. The amount of condition can impact evaluations both positively and negatively. Rincker: Body depth needs to fit the skeleton and maturity of an animal and, therefore, animals considered “too shallow” and “too deep” were evaluated that way considering their skeletal size, age, and weight. Our SimGenetic cattle today are naturally deeper and softer made as seen in both the showring and in the cowherds themselves and yet can successfully have that body and look without laying down excess fat. That is not to say that some deeper made cattle aren’t overly fed or even considered too fat giving evaluators the decision of “true and honest depth” as compared to “deeper due to fat”. Ropp: Certainly fatness affects depth of body, but there are body depth and capacity differences between cattle that are not due to fatness. Even in a group of thin cows or just-weaned calves when fat differences are very small, substantial differences in depth of body still exist. I try to adjust the evaluation of depth based on my evaluation of optimum vs. excessive condition. A relatively lean (.1-.3 in.) animal that has wonderful depth of fore rib and flank is particularly appealing. Question: Since the early 1990s, Simmental have increased muscling. When do you know when muscularity is ideal? Reimer: Speaking in terms of ribeye area, REA, ideal muscularity seems to be a moving target. Marketing grids may have differing REA targets, depending on the trade being supplied. As we evaluate ultrasound data on yearling bulls, a 14 to 16 inch REA is really a comfortable number for me. In the showring, having enough muscle expression to hit that target REA without inhibiting movement and production would be my target. Rincker: Our SimGenetic cattle are continuing as a breed for “completeness” and muscle and carcass traits have been included in our selection of “the right kind.” So often as cattle, and this is not just restricted to the Simmental breed, but as cattle get more extreme in their muscle, it will begin to impede movement, or affect balance, or create a high lean to fat look that might become questionable on their ability to maintain themselves. Our breeding cattle can accept a wider range of actual muscle and shape and still be acceptable or ideal, if the other phenotypic traits balance up with their muscle shape and mass.


Ropp: I assume you are talking about the overall appearance of muscling and not just ribeye size? The two are actually not as highly related as one might think. Muscling is obviously important. In this country we eat the cattle and high quality muscle proteins are our food production goal. That being said, extremes in muscling are not necessarily ideal from a production standpoint. Light muscled animals convert inefficiently, have reduced fleshing ability and keeping quality, dress poorly and produce less food than muscular ones. Extremely heavy muscled animals can have issues with reproduction, soundness and subsequent longevity. A balance is important, but as a Continental breed in particular, we must continue to provide an extra degree of muscling to better complement generally less muscular British breeds for successful crossbreeding programs. Also remember that when an animal is nutritionally challenged because of low feed resources, lactation etc., they lose protein tissues and fat at nearly the same rate. Therefore, more muscular animals actually tend to stay in better condition longer when challenged than light muscled animals. Question: Is there less intensity of selection for muscularity when you sort females? Why? Reimer: For me, priority for muscularity isn’t as high for females expected to be utilized in a breeding program. Physical traits affecting longevity, performance, body volume, femininity and adequate muscularity more closely fit my target. Rincker: Bulls tend to muscle up more with feed and time than do their counterpart heifers fed similarly and are often presented with more power and shape. However muscularity is a heritable trait so muscle in females is considered when I evaluate. With that said, rarely would muscle be my first discussion point, rather it would be a description of the amount or type of muscle with the preference for “ample muscling” that balances with their structure, condition, and growth. Ropp: Probably, females are less muscular in appearance without the effects of androgen hormones anyway, so understanding how that affects progeny is important. Bulls with below-average muscling are apt to produce steer progeny with insufficient efficiency and cutability. It too makes more sense to breed a muscular bull to a group of average muscled females than an average muscled bull to a group of heavy muscled females from a production standpoint. Besides, almost no one wants to buy a light muscled bull, but there is marketing hope for below average muscled females. In my opinion, however, selecting light muscled females for the sake of so called “femininity” is overrated. Truly feminine females become pregnant early in the breeding season, calve quickly with no assistance, raise a heavy calf, breed back quickly, stay in good condition given their nutritional environment and stay in the herd a long time without chasing their owner over the fence or up a tree.

Question: Since carcass weights continue to increase, will REA just get bigger and bigger? Can ribeyes get too big? Reimer: As we listen to packers, their most profitable carcass weights have increased because they have a fixed cost per head and a larger carcass yields more saleable product. Acceptable portion size does become a problem on exceptionally large REA’s and require specialty marketing. Rincker: We are increasing our carcass weights and have added seven pounds per year for the past 50 years! Our ribeye size has increased incrementally during that same period and using average muscled cattle at one inch of REA per 100 pounds of live weight, it only makes sense that our 13 and 1,400 pound cattle have an additional inch or two REA over our 12 weight cattle from what seems like just a few years ago. As long as our processors continue to tool up for larger carcasses on the rail, if our heavier weight cattle retain their feed efficiency, and if we keep below grid deducts for heavy carcasses, carcass weight and therefore ribeye size may continue to see some increase, challenging our foodservice industry with bigger ribeyes. Ropp: It stands to reason that may happen, especially with no adjustment to the UDSA Yield Grade (YG) formula to help heavier cattle stay out of the YG 4 and 5 categories. Insufficient numbers of slaughter cattle are increasing the demand for tonnage replacement that heavier carcass weights provide. It is simple. If slaughter cattle numbers are reduced by 5%, you need about 5% more carcass weight per animal (40-50 pounds per head) to replace the lost product. Actually it probably takes more than that with the increased fat that accompanies heavier weights, but it is close. The industry says ribeyes can get too big, however, I only know of one packer who discounts for large ribeyes. Some retailers have gone to cutting large pieces in half or reducing thickness to deal with these issues, the latter of which can really cause preparation issues. It too can be an issue getting enough intramuscular fat in larger ribeyes to reach premium Choice grades. (Questions and Answers continues on page 28) September 2017

PTP Shows Contribute to Our Success Questions and Answers: (Continued from page 25)

Question: Relative to your view of breeding better cattle and better beef, what is your best comment about the muscling of SimGenetic cattle relative to our role in crossbreeding? Reimer: SimGenetics bring a positive contribution to yield grade and the opportunity to extend market weights at those yield grades. Rincker: Yes, our breed is recognized as one that can provide muscling and cutability while at the same time our CMP Program has also identified SimGenetics’ ability to meet grid requirements for marbling. In particular, the last decade has seen an even wider acceptance of our breeding bulls and females to be used to both maximize heterosis in terminal scenerios and yet also provide “breed complementation” to herds attempting to enhance quality and breeding for better cattle.

September 2017

Ropp: Simmental genetics add muscling and cutability when combined with British breeds and that is a very good thing. With such a large number of British breed commercial cows in the country, Simmental muscling can help improve everything from the keeping quality of cows to the reduction of discounted, over-fat carcasses at the end of the production system. Muscle is about 2.25 times more energetically efficient to lay down when compared fat and that too provides big feed savings where energy has become the highest price component. Simmental does not, however, change ribeye size as greatly as some of our Continental competitors do which may actually be a benefit long term. Our CMP data shows that an average Simmental bull adds about 1 square inch of ribeye to an Angus cow versus breeding her to an Angus bull. This helps greatly with retail yield, but should not push ribeye sizes up to a point of risking discrimination by the retail and food service industry. ◆

ASA Foundation Golf Tournament The 2nd Annual American Simmental-Simbrah Foundation (ASF) Breeders Cup Golf Tournament was another success, held in conjunction with the 2017 AJSA National Classic in Hattiesburg, MS. It was a typical muggy Mississippi summer morning on July 10, as six teams teed off for a fun-filled day to help raise funds for junior scholarships and leadership workshops. There were participants from Mississippi to Wisconsin and back down to Missouri and Texas that made their way to the Timberton Golf Course, located just down the road from the fairgrounds. A lot of golf strategy, birdies, pars, “fours,” and many, many laughs were had by all. “This is a great event for us big kids to get out and have some fun with our own competition event to raise money for a good cause,” says Casey Buzzard from Southern Jewel Cattle Company, Victoria, Texas. “We are helping our next generation of breeders and leaders in the Simmental breed by creating more opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills.” First Mississippi #1 – Score of 59: Joey Rouse, Mike Funk, Ray Harris and David Williamson Second: Mississippi #2 – Score of 60: Doug Mooney, Troy Fleming, Richard Darrett and Jeffery Lee Thank you to all who participated in the great event! The ASF Breeders Cup Golf Tournament was created to raise funds for the youth of the Simmental and Simbrah breed. This year, the tournament raised a little over $6,000 that is earmarked for education, scholarships and leadership opportunities through the American Simmental-Simbrah Foundation. We could not have done that without the donation of all of our sponsors of the tournament and cannot say THANK YOU enough for your support and generosity. Make plans for 2018 AJSA National Classic held in St. Paul, MN, and plans are already in the making for the 3rd Annual ASF Breeders Cup Golf Tournament.

559R was Lot 1 in Lassle Ranch Simmentals’ sale this past spring near Glendive, MT, and we have confidence she will be a great addition to us in Missouri as we strive to produce profitable beef bulls for the true beef producer. She earned her way into the donor pen as a 6-year-old cow in 2011 and exploded onto the scene in 2013. She’s called the dam of herd sires, and it is well earned. 559R has placed six sons into breeding stock operations and AI studs in the last three years. Her other sons have consistently commanded the attention of and are highly sought after by progressive commercial cattlemen. She calved as a 2-year-old and every spring thereafter except 2012, 2014, and 2016 when she was left open to flush. She is now raising a March 2017 CCR Wide Range bull calf. She has earned a BW ratio of 101, WW ratio of 112 and a YW ratio of 107 on her seven natural calves.

Cow Herd DNA Roundup 60% off genomic testing (50K) on females for a limited time only A win for breeders and a win for the breed! In this time of rapid technological advancement, animal breeding is entering a new era. As demonstrated in the pig and dairy industries, gathering and incorporating vast amounts of genomic data into the genetic evaluation accelerates progress. Holsteins, for example, have genotyped 1.6 million cattle and subsequently doubled their genetic improvement rate. Female genotypes are rare and valuable, especially to predict maternal traits such as stayability and maternal calving ease. Furthermore, genotyping entire herds improves genomic evaluations by reducing bias created when only the best cattle are genotyped. Therefore, gathering massive amounts of genotypes on entire cow herds will significantly improve the genomic predictions and rate of genetic progress. Considering these facts, the ASA Board of Trustees passed an innovative resolution to invest in the future of genomic technology for ASA members. In August, the Board of Trustees voted to offer a $20 genomic profile (50K including parentage) to members who test their entire cow herd (a $30 savings). Wait, there’s more! Breeders who submit cow weights with either body conditions scores or hip heights receive an additional $5 off per test — an amazing price of $15/sample for something breeders currently pay $50 per test. This offer is for a limited time only — samples must be submitted to ASA by December 15, 2018. Don’t wait until next December 2018 to join this movement, there is a capped budget for this project so breeders need to submit samples early to ensure these discounts.

Benefits to participating members: 1. Genomic testing is most valuable in cattle with low accuracy EPDs. Typically, all cows have low accuracy EPDs because they don’t have enough calves in a lifetime to gain enough records to reach moderate or high accuracy EPDs. Therefore, adding genomic results to EPDs of the cow herd will markedly improve the accuracy of their EPDs allowing breeders to make better decisions. 2. At $20, if someone has 100 cows, they can test the entire herd for $2,000. Furthermore, if they submit cow weights, they would only pay $1,500. Based upon ASA’s current fee structure, the same allotment of funds would only be enough to GE-EPD 30-40 head and the whole herd would not benefit from the testing. 3. Parentage included — current error in parentage is estimated at 7%. Large scale testing will reveal and help correct errors in the pedigrees resulting in better EPD predictions. 4. Parentage markers will be in the database making future parentage testing easier. 5 In the future, maintaining a fully tested herd will only require testing yearling heifers.

September 2017

Benefits to the ASA and all members: 1. Harnesses the membership’s collective strength to bargain a better price with DNA companies. 2. Feeds large amounts of genotypes into BOLT and single step genetic evaluation, which improves the predictive power of our genetic evaluation. 3. Continues development of new and better DNA markers for even more accurate future tests.

Rules and restrictions: • $20/test for ASA members who submit DNA on their entire cow herd (with a 10% window). • $15/test if members also electronically submit mature cow weights and either body condition scores or hip heights on the herd. There is a finite budget for the reduced price so act fast. • The above prices are a one-time opportunity. Samples must be received at the ASA by December 15, 2018 to qualify. • Cows must be recorded in the ASA database. • As this is part of research and development, the timeline for results is uncertain. Breeders enrolled in this program acknowledge there is not a definite timeline for reporting results. • Breeders will be billed after results are completed. • Donor cows and bulls do not qualify for this project. • There will be no additional DNA tests available (no traits or genetic conditions). If breeders want these additional DNA tests, they need to collect a second sample and use the normal DNA services for these tests. • Breeders may submit DNA on heifers but they must recognize the uncertain timeline for results. If you are working your cattle this fall, consider joining the Cow Herd DNA Roundup. Jump on board and be a part of this maternal revolution.

DIRECTOR’S DIALOGUE By Jackie Atkins, Director of Science and Education

I love my job! When I was in graduate school studying reproductive physiology, I thought I would eventually have an academic career. I enjoyed teaching. I enjoyed working with producers. I enjoyed research. I figured a future career in extension or research with a teaching appointment would be a perfect jatkins@simmgene.com fit. Working for a breed association was not on my radar. Fast forward several years to an out-of-the-blue phone call from Dr. Jerry Lipsey, then the Executive Vice President (EVP) of the American Simmental Association (ASA). Jerry asked if I had any interest in coming to the ASA and learning about this Association. After that fortuitous phone call and meeting Jerry and our current EVP, Dr. Wade Shafer, I started part-time helping with a specific project. This project bloomed into my current position a few months later.

September 2017

I simply love working at the ASA for you, our membership. The culture of the Association, putting science first and developing programs to make our breeder’s customers successful, is so appealing to me. A few new services fit this philosophy to a “T”. The new IGS Feeder Profit Calculator™ (FPC) helps beef cattle producers evaluate the value of their feeder calves using the known management practices and genetics to predict post weaning performance. What a great development for the beef industry — to empower the cow-calf producers with information to better market their product. The ASA also recently launched the Cow Herd DNA Roundup (CHR), a new drive to collect more genotypes on females from whole herds. This project offers 60% off 50K testing ($20 compared to $50) to ASA members who test their entire herd. If members also include mature cow weights and body condition scores (BCS) or hip heights, then the price drops to $15/test. This is a fantastic opportunity for breeders to test their entire herd, verify parentage, and add valuable phenotypes to the genetic evaluation. The CHR promises to deliver more accurate EPDs not only to the participants of the program but also to all members using the IGS evaluation. The FPC and CHR are just the shiny new programs. The ASA has so many activities and projects aimed at leveraging science and technology to help breeders and cow-calf producers of any age be more successful. Educational programs like Fall Focus, the Steer Profitability Competition (SPC), the first annual joint IGS youth leadership conference, the Summit, offer unique educational opportunities for beef cattle enthusiasts. The Carcass Merit Program (CMP) marks its 20th year of progeny testing young sires from birth through harvest. The CMP has expanded to include more herds, thus test more bulls, has added feed intake to a portion of the calves, and now is genotyping the CMP calves to do an ever-better job predicting hard to collect traits like carcass and feed intake. The ASA collaborates with researchers at several institutions doing their part to better understand economically relevant traits in beef cattle, genomics, animal breeding principles, and applying this information to improve beef cattle production. The science team at IGS is on the cusp of revolutionizing the genetic evaluation with BOLT and single step genomic evaluation on all traits. The list goes on and on. All of these programs wrapped up in one humble and hard-working association. Thanks to our members, to our Board, and to the staff of the ASA — I am proud to be a part of this innovative company and can’t wait to see where we go next. u

New $50 Reinstatement Fee During the April, 2017 Board Meeting in Bozeman, the ASA Board enacted a new Annual Service Reinstatement Fee of $50 for members who have not paid their Annual Service Fee (ASF) by October 23, 2017. The current year’s ASF was billed at the beginning of July, and if not paid prior to October 23, ASA removes this billing from the member’s account and the membership becomes inactive.

ASA Updates DNA Test Result Notifications The ASA has updated their process of notifying members of DNA test results. DNA test results will now be sent automatically by email from Herdbook Services when DNA has been completed on a member account. If a member does not have an email on file with ASA, the member will still receive the test results by mail. Members may now view DNA test results by logging into herdbook.org, pulling up the animal’s pedigree, and selecting “DNA Detail” under the “Report” section. If you have further questions or want step-by-step instructions you can go to simmental.org/haveyouherd for more details.

Members, do you know a commercial operation with accurate and consistent records? Do they retain ownership of the calves or have an interest in collecting carcass data? Would they like to get paid to use some of the most promising young bulls in the industry? Maybe you have a commercial herd of your own that could work as a cooperator herd for the ASA’s CMP. Spring or fall calving “Participating as a CMP cooperative herd for nine years has enabled us to get the hard facts on feeding efficiency and harvest value by traits on our calves. As a commercial cow/calf operation, interested in making genetic progress in the cowherd, we have used the data in replacement selection and are seeing a difference in our bottom line.” Lynda Stuart, Stuart Land and Cattle Co. “We are glad to be part of the CMP program. It provided us with top quality calves while we get to participate in improving Simmental genetics.” John Hall, Ph. D., Professor and Extension Beef Specialist and Superintendent at University of Idaho Nancy M. Cummings REEC.

Incentives for Cooperators

u Free semen from the industries top herd sire prospects u All cows in herd will be put in ASA’s database which will provide EPDs for every female. This allows you to make selection and culling decisions within the cowherd based on EPDs. u You have the option to retain all or some of the females produced from the program u ASA will pay $60/AI sired carcass that is harvested u Cooperators will get carcass data back on all the calves harvested through the program. u A portion of the CMP calves have feed intake collected and records shared with the cooperators.

How does it work?

u ASA assigns all matings in a random fashion so that the test produces unbiased, accurate results. u ASA will work to provide bulls that fit the general criteria of your herd. However ASA must use only bulls that are enrollled in the program. u At least two sires will be used per contemporary group and ASA likely will use several sires per contemporary group to provide better more accurate test results. u Only bulls with high calving ease EPDs are used on heifers.

Qualifications 1. All cows will be individually identified along with birth year and approximate breed makeup 2. Collect birth weights, calving ease scores, and weaning weights on CMP sired calves 3. Beneficial but not required — have a current AI program established 4. Must commit to collecting carcass data Contact Jackie Atkins or Jannine Story for more information at 406-587-4531.

Foundation Focus By Mark Smith, ASF Board Member, Picayune, MS

The Joy of Giving Three years ago when Mississippi started our campaign to host the AJSA National Classic, the last thing I was concerned about was raising enough money. After all, Mississippi is one of the most charitable states in the US, and after raising enough in just six months to host the 2012 Eastern Regionals, money was the least of my worries. Like many, I was more worried about manpower — the physical labor it would take to accommodate 700 folks at one time. Once we were secured as the host state, we started on the money. In a year and a half, we only raised $38,000. That was same amount we raised for Eastern Regionals in 2012 and spent it all to make for a memorable event. Actually, that’s why we thought we were big enough and strong enough to host a National Classic. Around October 2016, this big ole southern boy was almost ready to throw in the towel. With a great deal of begging and pleading, we had sold heifers, semen, embryos, and other auction items, as well as bought all we could afford just to help the host funds. I was starting to question if this was something we were capable of doing. In my mind, we could do it for a minimum of $80,000 but really wanted to reach our goal of $100,000. We wanted the hospitality we are known for to shine in all aspects of our event. The folks who laughed at us for trying may have been right — we were going to have egg

Foundation Mission Statement The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage by public or private contribution, support of worthwhile educational and charitable projects that are of interest and benefit to devotees of the American Simmental Association. Further to receive, maintain, use and apply donated funds for such purposes; and to implement such educational and charitable projects, including, but not limited to: • Support of ASA's youth program through scholarships or program sponsorship. • Continuing educational programs for beef enthusiasts and members of the youth program. • Expanded educational programs for ASA and members of the beef industry in the areas of performance testing, leadership and bovine management. • Research grants to qualified colleges and universities, for documentation of bovine performance, and research into the prevention of, or cure for cattle diseases. • Other projects or activities as may be determined by the parent association.

all over us, not just on our face. So my wife, Debbie and I sat down to discuss our options: simply fail, steadily keep trying, or really get in high gear and keep going. We took it to our MSSA membership. Nine months before the event, we reviewed our financial report and all agreed we needed to get our act together or else the event was not going to be up to the standards we had set for ourselves. After mailing out letters to all state Simmental Associations, major donors, and potential sponsors, we kept praying that God would help us. Our entire membership was onboard the fundraising train and blowing full steam ahead! Then, we took a donation to Denver for the ASSF Annual Auction — a remanufactured Black River Precision Turkey gun and basket full of Mississippi products. This seemed to kick-start our fundraising campaign. Money started rolling in. The closer to July it got, the more money that came. It was so incredible! Every day, Debbie or I would go to the mailbox only to find another check, each one $500 or more, and each one equally appreciated. Not to mention, the amount of phone calls from major donors searching for sponsorship forms was humbling. We finally reached our goal of $100,000 and then some! Now, I know I’m not the only person that believes it is a greater blessing to give than to receive. “I have showed you all things, how that so laboring ye aught to support the weak, and to remember the words of the LORD JESUS, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35 There are so many individuals that helped support the 2017 AJSA National Classic with their time and money; they must believe the scripture as I do. During the banquet on Friday night, seeing the purest joy and excitement on young AJSA faces was absolutely PRICELESS! It all happened because of YOU believing in the joy of giving! Why do I give? I give, because I enjoy the reward of seeing my support help others. I give because the two kids God blessed Debbie and me with gained so much from the AJSA. It has helped make a huge impact on the individuals Alan and Jessica have become. I give, because there is a return on my investment, a life-long payoff of a neighbors’ child receiving benefits from the AJSA. I love giving. We gave back July 8-14, 2017, and it was such a JOY to watch! God took a little and made it HUGE!!! Another hearty THANK YOU to all you folks out there who love to give! All gave some, some gave a lot, and some gave all!! I thank God for His blessings, I thank each of you who came, and I thank all of you that believe in the joy of giving. ◆


By AJSA President Jordan Cowger, Kansas City, MO I hope this article finds you well as we wrap up our exciting summers and head back to school this fall. This summer was an exciting one for the AJSA, because we had a Regional Classic in all four regions, an outstanding National Classic hosted by the great state of Mississippi, and the very first IGS Summit Leadership Conference hosted with the junior Gelbvieh and Shorthorn associations. We also completed the very first cycle of the Steer Profitability Contest, extending our reach into the commercial world and touching the lives of all types of junior livestock members. It is a thrilling time to be a part of the Simmental breed, as we are growing, changing, and expanding our brand in the beef world. We are continually recruiting new members and building new relationships both with other junior breed associations and with the commercial industry. Through these exciting changes, I cannot wait to serve you this year as your 2017-2018 AJSA President.

This year, your Junior Board will continue working hard to improve upon the AJSA at our annual fall meetings held in conjunction with the IGS Summit and during conference calls throughout the year. We will work to improve the events we conduct, the programs we provide, and how we communicate with our members. We are working hard to keep up with our continually growing and changing organization, but we cannot do it alone! We want to be sure that the decisions we make have the positive influence that we hope they will, so please always feel free to contact a Junior Trustee at any time with any questions, concerns, or comments you have about the changes happening within the AJSA. We meet regularly and would love to hear from you! Finally, I would like to extend a thank-you to every state, person and volunteer that helped put on an AJSA event this summer. The effort, efficiency, and hospitality put into a Simmental event is always top notch and I know every junior member is grateful for the opportunity to compete, show, and connect with people across the country at these events. I wish everyone the best throughout this year, and let the countdown to the 2018 National Classic begin! â&#x2014;&#x2020;

Mertz Steers Post Impressive Numbers The combination of good genetics, a reputation feedlot and a beef-processing plant that rewards outstanding carcasses results in excellence and economic rewards. Joe Mertz of River Creek Farms, Manhattan, KS, has experienced that formula first-hand. Thirty-nine Mertz steers, males that were not retained as bulls because of less than desirable conformation, lower performance and/or ratios among their contemporaries, structure, lower birth weights, pedigree, etc., were fed at Tiffany Cattle Company, Herrington, KS. The in-weight of the steers was 1,028 pounds, valued at $118/hundred-

weight. They were fed for 96 days and gained 3.83 pounds/day with a cost of gain of $0.75/pound. The steers dressed at 63% and 35 graded Choice (15 were branded as Certified Angus Beef); three graded Prime and one graded Select. In addition, 76% were Yield Grade 1 and 2 with just one Yield Grade 4. One carcass was three pounds overweight. The base live price at harvest was $121.63/100 pounds, but the average premium was $7.62/100 pounds live weight (1,409 pound out-weight) for an average of $108/head.

Simbrah Roundup Breaks Last Year’s Record The annual American Junior Simbrah Roundup, held July 12-24 at the Wharton County Fairgrounds in Crescent, TX, drew record-breaking attendance for the second year in a row: 143 head of cattle and 94 exhibitors from the states of Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, an increase of 25 cattle and four exhibitors from 2016. The event was dedicated to long-time supporter Rodney Finch of Anderson. Javier Martinez of Angleton won the Animo Award. The $2,000 American Junior Simbrah Roundup scholarship went to Amelia Stavinoha, Trever Jenkins, Andrew Cano, and Hunter Wells.

CSA to Host 2017 Simmental Federation The Canadian Simmental Association (CSA) will be hosting the 2017 Simmental Federation of Americas meeting. To be held in conjunction with the National Simmental Show during the Canadian Western Agribition, November 20-25th, in Regina, Saskatchewan. US Simmental breeders and affiliated industries are invited to attend. A block of rooms is available until October 20, 2017, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Regina. Registration is at a discounted rate before September 15. Go to www.simmental.org to register and find the schedule of events.

AJSA Youth Development Scholarship The American Simmental-Simbrah Foundation (ASF) is collecting donations to fund six scholarships for young beef enthusiasts that participate in the Steer Profitability Competition (SPC). A goal of $12,000 has been set to create scholarships, and help pay the expense of capturing feed intake and carcass data. The SPC challenges participants, ranging in age from eight to 21, to measure and compare the profitability of their own animals, through monthly meetings, lectures, essays, and reports. Last year, 31 beef industry youths enrolled 66 cattle from nine different states. During their involvement, they were introduced to peers, mentors, industry advocates, and experiences that are exceedingly difficult to acquire for any beef producer.

2018 Steer Profitability Competition Eligibility The AJSA’s inaugural Steer Profitability Competition (SPC) kicked off November 1, 2016. It’s time to begin thinking about the 2017/2018 SPC. Any steer calf calved January 15 — April 15, 2017, is eligible for this fall’s SPC competition. There is no breed requirement for entry. The animal requires one parent be on file with ASA as either a Simmental or Foundation animal. Youth aged 8-21 years of age are encouraged to retain ownership on spring steer calves for 2017-18. Entries are due September 15, 2017. Please direct questions to ASA Membership Director, Chip Kemp at 406-587-4531 ext. 508 or ckemp@simmgene.com (Continued on page 114)

STATE SCENE TSSA Holds Field Day The Tennessee Simmental-Simbrah Association held a field day April 22, at Austin Peay State University’s farm in Clarksville. There were many educational speakers at the event, including Jamie Spears, Kentucky, who lectured on embryo transfer and IVF techniques, and Zach Bartenslager from West Virginia, who is finishing his masters at the University of Tennessee, and spoke about genomically enhanced EPDs, and balanced selection for herd sires and replacement heifers. At the end of the field day, Dr. Rod Mills from Austin Peay State University lectured on intensive rotational grazing and the benefits it brought the SimGenetic and Angus university herd.

McDonald Farms Hosts Field Day McDonald Farms, Blackburg, VA, hosted the 2017 Virginia Simmental Association Field Day on August 4. With nearly 50 SimGenetic enthusiasts in attendance, ASA members as well as commercial producers caught up with Luke Bowman on the latest ASA programs and learned more about the Feeder Profit Calculator™. This group was one of the first to hear about the new Cow Herd DNA Roundup that will be launched by the ASA. Participants observed new feeding practices taking place at McDonald Farms and the SimAngus™ herd, as well as enjoyed refreshments provided by a local dairy.

Don Burnham, Simmental Pioneer Passes January 4, 1934 – July 16, 2017

Don Burnham, whose ASA charter membership number is 174, passed away July 16, at the age of 83. With his wife, Nancy, Burnham ranched for nearly 60 years near Helena, Montana, and after joining the American Simmental Association in 1968, bred and raised his chosen cattle breed for just short of half a century. After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease 30 years ago, Burnham soldiered on, remaining active in cattle production and the promotion of his beloved Simmental until his death, which came following an accidental fall in his home. Tributes poured in from those who knew him well, including his fellow breeders who respected and admired his Prickly Pear Simmental operation. Jim Butcher of Gateway Simmentals of Lewistown, a former ASA Board Chairman called him, “Dedicated and persistent. There was not a state function that Don didn’t attend and support. He was an unrelenting promoter of Prickly Pear Simmental and Simmental in general. It never ceased to amaze me how a man could continue being so energetic in spite of declining health. He had a great love for Simmental cattle and the people who raised them.” Maureen Mai, who lives near Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, but has served for several years as Secretary of the Montana Simmental Association (MSA) echoed Butcher’s thoughts. “He was a pioneer, a true and proud believer of the Simmental breed,” she said. “Don was always a center piece at any MSA meeting, sale or function. His stories of the past and his vision of the future were always listened to intently by fellow breeders and friends. Don and his stories will be missed.” Former ASA Executive Vice President Jerry Lipsey summarized Burnham with these words. “He was among our greatest advocates for performance data collection and knew that accurate reporting is the

108

September 2017

bedrock of ASA’s genetic evaluation. Even when the outlook was less than bright, he was always optimistic,” he continued. “Don and Nancy built their business into a Simmental treasure and every visitor was welcomed and valued.” A Navy veteran, he served as an aviation navigator, serving with the Seventh Fleet stationed in the Pacific theater. Active in many agricultural organizations, he was a member of the Farm Bureau, the Montana Stockgrowers and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Locally, he served the Helena Chamber of Commerce, the water users association, and as a 4-H leader, judge and volunteer. Between 1988 and 2000, Burnham made 10 trips to Nigeria as a consultant on animal health, nutrition and genetic programs. He also attended World Simmental Federation Congress meetings in the US, Canada, Austria, Brazil, Ireland and Scotland/England. Born and raised in nearby Missoula, he was an animal science graduate of Montana State College (now Montana State University), where he met Nancy, his life’s companion. In 2014, his alma mater honored him with its Outstanding Agricultural Leader Award. Burnham served 13 years on the board of the MSA, including several terms as president. In addition, he spent six years as an ASA Trustee. In 1999, Don was among recipients of ASA’s prestigious Golden Book Award and the MSA recognized him with its highest honor — the Pioneer Award. He is survived by Nancy, his wife of 59 years; four children: Kent, Kurt, Gary and Marla; 10 grandchildren; four great grandchildren; a brother, Neil; and a sister, Joyce Smith. “Don’s contributions to our businesses and lives were large,” Lipsey remarked. “Thanks, Don, we needed you.” ◆


NEWSMAKERS ASA Member Injured in Farming Accident Doug Bichler, Bichler Simmentals, Linton, ND, was injured in an accident involving a baler in late June. Bichler was airlifted to St. Paul, MN, where his arm, severely damaged in the accident, was amputated just below his shoulder. Bichler Simmentals have been active members of ASA since 2001 and active members of the North Dakota Simmental Association (NDSA). Doug represented NDSA and ASA at the 2013 NCBA Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC). The family started a YouCaring Fund Page where they have raised almost $58,000 as of the beginning of July.

BEEF BUSINESS USDA Proposes New Method of Grading

New Trade Post Filled

USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is proposing to include dental condition and documentation of actual age as additional methods of classifying maturity of beef carcasses for quality grading. Currently, the US Standards for Grading of Carcass Beef only include skeletal and muscular evidence as a determination of maturity grouping. The proposed revision would allow carcasses of grain-fed steers and heifers determined to be younger than 30 months old by dentition or by documentation of actual age to be included in the youngest maturity group for carcasses recognized as “beef” (A maturity).

Ted McKinney of Indiana has been nominated to be under secretary of agriculture for trade and foreign agricultural affairs. Agricultural Secretary Sonny Purdue had announced the creation of the new trade post as part of USDA. McKinney has served since 2014 as director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. A native of Tipton, where he grew up on a family grain and livestock farm, McKinney also worked for 19 years with Dow AgroSciences and 14 years with Elanco, where he was director of global corporate affairs.

Cattlemen Sue to reinstate COOL Food Safety System Works NCBA has issued the following statement regarding the announcement by US agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue that the USDA is placing a ban on the import of fresh beef from Brazil: NCBA supports the action taken by Secretary Perdue to suspend fresh imports from Brazil. “This action is the result of USDA’s strong, science-based testing protocol of imported beef and this proves that our food safety system works effectively. NCBA supports USDA’s commitment to science-based trade and its commitment to keeping our food supply as safe as possible.”

A group of US cattle ranchers has filed a lawsuit against the USDA alleging that the agency is violating federal law by not requiring country-of-origin labeling (COOL) on imported beef and pork. The complaint was filed in federal district court in Washington state on behalf of Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund (R-CALF) and producers in Washington. NCBA is among those organizations that oppose COOL. Congress repealed COOL in December 2015 after Canada and Mexico convinced the World Trade Organization (WTO) that the rule discriminated against their livestock and violated trade laws.

Agro-terrorism Bill Passed A bill designed to heighten preparedness of the nation’s food, agriculture and veterinary systems has been signed into law. The US Senate passed the “Securing our Agriculture and Food” Act unanimously, and the US House approved it as well. Sponsored by Rep. David Young (R-Iowa), the legislation addresses concerns highlighted by the 2015 avian influenza outbreak that wiped out millions of layer hens, turkeys, and backyard flocks.

Farm Groups Critical Farm groups, including the Farm Bureau, are openly critical of the administration’s policy toward Cuba that places new restrictions on travel and business, shifting away from the previous administration’s push toward greater engagement. The announcement imposes new limits on commercial transactions that involve Ag exports to Cuba. Cuba has been open to US exports since 2015, but limited to cash sales. Last year, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) set updated export requirements for exports to Cuba, including fresh and frozen pork, poultry, beef, sheep, and goat meat.

Menus of Change Released The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health have released the “2017 Menus of Change” report, focused on efforts by restaurants to decrease meat consumption. The collaboration advocates for chefs to “rethink the longstanding emphasis of red meat and animal proteins on our plates”. The report was released in conjunction with the fifth annual Menus of Change Summit and includes an analysis of issues at the convergence of public health, the environment, and the business of food.

The US Beef Cow Herd Increases The total US cattle herd was at 103 million head on July 1, 2017. According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the total herd count has increased 4% since the previous summer report on July 1, 2015, when there were 98.2 million head. The total cow herd was at 41.9 million head, up 5% from the 39.8 million head mark two summers ago. Beef cows composed 32.5 million head in the total herd, and accounted for a 7% increase during the last two years. While the live inventory is up, USDA’s Cold Storage June report revealed total red meat supplies in freezers were down 3% from the previous month and down 7% from last year.

Judge Strikes Down “Ag-Gag” Law A federal judge in Utah has ruled that a state law barring unauthorized filming of agricultural operations violates free-speech rights, marking a victory for animal rights groups. The Judge issued a 31-page ruling that rejected the defendant’s arguments that freespeech rights are not guaranteed when people are on private property (like animal processing plants), and the law protects the safety of animals and workers. The ruling noted that the agriculture industry is vital to the US economy but the First Amendment rights of individuals must be protected. ◆

Spanish-inspired Smoked Beef La Tienda, the largest online retailer of Spanish foods in the US, has announced the launch of American-made Cecina, a dry-cured smoked beef created following the traditions of its origin in Leon. Cecina consists of tender, smoky slices of cured beef with a deep red color that is low in fat and high in protein. Similar to Spanish Jamon, Cecina is always served thinly sliced and at room temperature. The US ban on Spanish beef, in place since the 1990s, had prevented US consumers from buying Spanish-produced Cecina.

CUTTING EDGE

BULLETINS continued from page 104

FDA Approves First Pain Medication The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced the approval of Banamine Transdermal (flunixin transdermal solution), for use in food-producing animals. The drug can now be used for the control of pain associated with foot rot and the control of fever associated with bovine respiratory disease. This is the first new animal drug approved in the US for controlling pain in cattle. Animals affected by foot rot become severely lame, and the disease can affect deeper structures in the foot and leg if not treated. As a prescription medication, Banamine Transdermal can only be used by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Cows Important for Human Research Cows are contributing to the field of HIV vaccine research. An outline in a recent study reported the elicitation of powerful HIV-blocking antibodies in cows in a matter of weeks — a process that usually takes years in humans. All cows immunized responded within 32 to 52 days. In comparison, it takes HIV-positive people multiple years to develop comparable responses, and only 5% to 15% develop a response at all. The animal model is providing clues for answering important questions at a moment when new energy has been infused into HIV vaccine research.

Fast Listeria Test Developed Neogen Corp. announced that it has developed an innovative test that can detect Listeria in less than 60 minutes. The food safety products developer said its Listeria Right Now™ test uses the ribosomal RNA to detect all species of the bacteria. The test is currently under review by the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) Performance Tested certification to further validate its accuracy. Neogen’s vice president has said the test means companies will no longer have to grow or store potentially dangerous cultures in their facilities during the testing procedure.

Hospitals Asked to Eliminate Processed Meat The American Medical Association (AMA) has adopted a new policy on hospital foods that calls for, among other changes, the elimination of processed meats from food items. At the AMA’s annual meeting in June, its House of Delegates adopted a policy calling on US hospitals “to improve the health of patients, staff and visitors” by providing a variety of healthy food, including plant-based meals, and meals that are low in fat, sodium, and added sugars; eliminating processed meats, and; providing and promoting healthful beverages.

Salt Poisoning Kills Cattle The death of 200 head of cattle in southwest Saskatchewan, Canada, has been attributed to salt poisoning. The cattle were moved into a new field on July 1, and checked on the following day. On regular schedule for the pasture checks, staff found the cattle dead on July 7. Environmental conditions such as heat and dryness may be contributing factors as salt concentrations increases as ponds, tanks, mud holes, creeks and other water sources dry up. Over 24,000 milligrams per liter of sulphate was found in water tested from a dugout. ◆

CORPORATE REPORT Select Sires Acquire Accelerated Genetics

JBS Sells Canadian Business

Select Sires and Accelerated Genetics have announced that Select will acquire the assets of Accelerated. The two AI co-ops will join forces of employees and independent sales representatives in each of their respective geographical member organizational areas. The two co-ops have been working together since 2001, and each owns shares in World Wide Sires to market semen in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania. The merged co-op will operate under Select Sires, Inc. name. Select Sires operates out of Plain City, OH, and Accelerated Genetics is headquartered in Baraboo, WI.

JBS announced the sale of a feedlot and neighboring farmland for $40 million ($50 million CAD). The operation, located near Brooks, Alberta, has been sold to MCF Holdings Ltd. The Lakeside Feeders yard has a capacity of 75,000 head, and has been owned by JBS Food Canada since 2013. JBS Food Canada will maintain ownership of the packing plant in Brooks, and MCF will supply cattle to the plant. The deal is pending review and approval by regulators.

Amazon Buys Whole Foods Amazon and Whole Foods Market Inc. have announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement for Amazon to acquire Whole Foods Market in an all-cash transaction valued at $13.7 billion, including Whole Foods Market’s net debt. The move has sent shock waves through the grocery industry. Kroger fell 14.5%, Supervalu dropped 17%, and Costco decreased 7%. Target was down 10%, and Wal-Mart was down nearly 7%. Amazon will most likely make Whole Foods more affordable in price.

Chick-fil-A’s system sales have increased nearly 73% to about $7.9 billion from $4.6 billion, over the past five years, putting the Atlanta-based quick-service restaurant on track to overtake Dunkin’ Donuts this year as the country’s seventhlargest restaurant chain, according to the report. Chick-fil-A generated unit volumes of nearly $3.9 million, up 10.7% over the last year, despite being open six days a week, closing its restaurants every night, and serving a chicken-centric menu. ◆

INTERNATIONAL USDA Expands Netherlands’ Access

US Beef to China

USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced it will begin allowing imports of raw intact veal intended for raw non-intact use from the Netherlands. The agency explained procedures for inspection personnel to verify the accuracy of inspection certificates for use by the central competent authority of the Netherlands. The certificates provide assurance that these products meet FSIS requirements.

In a historic ceremony, officials formally welcomed the first shipments of American-produced beef into China since 2013. NCBA president Craig Uden joined US Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, US Ambassador to China Terry Branstad, and Chinese officials at the ceremony in Beijing, China’s capital. NCBA has worked since 2003 to help restore access to China’s 1.3 billion consumers for America’s cattle and beef producers. Those efforts finally bore fruit earlier this year, when the Chinese negotiators and US reached agreement on the final protocols that would break the nearly 14-year logjam.

US Eyes EU-Japan Trade Agreement The European Union has announced it reached a trade agreement with Japan that will reduce tariffs on several imported items, including pork and beef products. Under the terms of the pact, about 85% of tariff lines concerning EU agricultural food products exported to Japan will be allowed to enter duty-free over time, corresponding to the 87% current export value for agricultural products. Under the EU/Japan trade pact, tariffs on beef and veal will be cut to nine percent from 38.5% over 15 years with an initial cut to 27.5% for an increased volume of beef products, which could put the US at a significant disadvantage.

Brazilian Beef Ban Holds Brazil needs to demonstrate progress on food safety issues before timeline can be set to end a US ban on imports of fresh Brazilian beef, US Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said after meeting with his Brazilian counterpart. The US government in June announced the suspension of all fresh beef imports from Brazil because of recurring concerns about the safety of the products.

China Bans Australian Beef China has imposed a temporary ban on beef products from six Australian processors because of concerns about label noncompliance. Australian government officials confirmed the ban and vowed to work closely with the beef industry and Chinese trade officials to resolve the issue. The dispute does not involve health or food safety problems, but stems from non-compliance issues centered on the labeling of meat from Australian processors. China is the fourth-largest beef market for Australia, whose beef exports to the country were worth more than $600 million in 2016.

Research Center Expands Canada has announced an investment in research designed to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the country’s livestock industry through genetic profiling of cowherds to boost feed efficiency. The Elora Beef Research Centre at the University of Guelph will be expanded as part of an investment with Ontario beef producers that will focus on enhancing the genetic profile of Canadian cowherds. The project is expected to reduce the amount of feed needed for every pound of beef, while reducing methane and manure. ◆

FLECKVIEH FORUM Brandy Jordan, FSFF Coordinator

The purity and consistency of the Fleckvieh Simmental lineage offers significant heterosis when utilized in Purebred and Commercial herds. Heterosis, or hybrid vigor, refers to the phenomenon that progeny of two different purebred lines exhibit improvements in such characteristics as growth, fertility, and yield over those of the parents. Use Fullblood Fleckvieh Simmental sires to take your program to the next level. You can rest easy knowing that Fleckvieh cattle are “easy calvers,” and you will be pleasantly surprised to see just how easily your calves pack on the pounds. That increased growth rate reduces your time to market as a producer. Fleckvieh Simmental cattle excel in the feedlot and on the rail and consistently yield the desirable carcass traits demanded by today’s consumers. Need to keep some replacement females? Your new Fleckvieh Simmental bull will have passed on exceptional maternal traits that will have you lamenting why you waited so long to use Fleckvieh genetics. Fleckvieh females have improved udder and teat quality and incredible milking ability. They are also known for their fertility and longevity. Your Fleckvieh influenced replacements will become pillars of excellence within the cow families of your program. Check out our member list online, and call any of our members to ask what Fleckvieh has done for them! The Fullblood Simmental Fleckvieh Federation (FSFF) operates as a marketing organization to promote Fleckvieh Simmental cattle worldwide to purebred and commercial producers. These are some of the FSFF’s new developments and upcoming events: 1. Advertising opportunities are available in the upcoming 2018 FSFF Membership Directory. All FSFF members receive a complimentary breeder listing in the Directory and on the FSFF website. The deadline for camera-ready ads is September 30, 2017. Please see our website or contact the office for pricing and other information. 2. As breeders, enthusiasts and agriculturists, we know youth are the future of our industry. In November 2017, the FSFF will award its very first $1,000 scholarship to a FSFF junior member. The application is available online at www.fleckvieh.com and lists all requirements. Join the FSFF junior today ($15 per member per year) to be eligible for future scholarships! 3. The FSFF’s second fundraiser, a “Herd in a Tank,” will sell as a special lot at Little Creek Farm’s Magnolia Classic sale on October 28, 2017. ALL proceeds will fund additional scholarships for FSFF junior members! Please contact the office toll free at 855-353-2584 for more info or to contribute frozen Fullblood Simmental genetics.
