AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2022

Gracing the front cover of The Banner is a future stud buck and exciting fall ewe lamb in the barn here at Pines End Natural Coloreds. “Flash Flood” PENC 21-71 is a fall ram lamb that is Yesterday Road X PRF 1806 (a Diamond Head daughter bred by Thomas Vandeventer/ Purple Ribbon Farms). “Flash Flood” was recently named Champion Ram at the 2022 Minnesota State Fair. “Yesterday Road” (“This Is True” X PENC 19-69) was Champion Ram at the 2018 South Dakota, Minnesota, and Ohio State Fairs and Keystone Livestock Expo, and was Reserve Champion Ram at NAILE. The fall ewe lamb on the bottom half of the cover is “Lady May” PENC 21-57 (“Caprockin’” PENC 19-65 X Borcher 0239). She is a full sib to this year’s Ohio Sale Champion Ewe which sold to Merlau/ Craig. “Caprockin’” is out of two Louisville champions: “Triple H” X “Pretty Woman” (Yesterday Road’s full sister). We’ve got a couple bred ewes and an exciting fall ewe lamb consigned to the North Star Sale on October 29 in Pipestone, MN – call with any questions on these entries. One is a maternal sib to the popular yearling ewe Alivia Porter is showing this summer. There is online bidding this year so tune in to see the sale! A huge thank you to all our supporters – your continued success is our goal. It has been an incredible show season for many of you that are campaigning Pines End sheep and we are so grateful for our buyers that do a tremendous job. Thank you to all those behind the scenes that make everything go, particularly in the past year during the move back to South Dakota. Thank you to my parents and Jerrod & Jodee for their help in the transition and Devon Wolkow for making it possible.

Pines End Custom Fitting would like to thank all our help at the shows and sales! Brandon Cloose, Becca Wilts, Dick Reece, the Knutson girls, Riley Donkers, Ron Waldron, Jarrod Neumeister, Jerrod Nohner, Ryder Juntunen, and everyone else who steps in to lend a hand. We could not do it without you! It’s been a great year. We’ll load the truck and trailer shortly and point it south to Louisville with excitement for the green shavings. Thank you to our custom fitting customers for trusting us and believing in us. I’m unable to thank you all enough for believing in Pines End Natural Coloreds & Custom Fitting and making this dream a reality. Your belief and trust in our program is appreciated more than you know. More than that, when it’s all said and done, the friendships are what it’s all about and I’m incredibly grateful for you all. The new South Dakota headquarters would love some visitors! You’re always welcome on the prairie.

God Bless, Dylan Nohner

Editorial Why do we show sheep? Why do we work so hard to do what we do? It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to fit and show livestock, and even more to raise them. You’re guaranteed late nights, early mornings, and a lot of expenses to factor in . Fitting can be more than difficult depending on the time of year, like when it’s 104° getting ready for the state fair or frigid at the NAILE wash racks . But still, we keep loading our favorites onto a trailer, hauling them off sometimes hundreds or even thousands of miles to wash, fit, trim, and show off the pride of our flocks just to get one judge’s opinion that day. Why? I know there are various reasons, and different aspects carry more weight with different people. For me, I look back fondly on how much I learned growing up in the sheep industry. The technical skills learned to show a sheep may not be very transferable to the non-ag world, but the responsibility, problem solving skills and sportsmanship I learned are valuable everywhere. For some, chasing a purple banner is a high-priority. It feels good to win and have your breeding selections and hard work validated. However, equal pride can be found from breeders who placed 3rd in a very large class with their home-raised ewe. In my opinion, one of the biggest reasons why we show is the irreplaceable human connection that is created in the barn . Priceless memories are made during time spent around a trimming stand and show ring with family – both the biological kind and the add-on, sheep barn family you gain along the way. That connection is why so often former shepherds and showmen still come out to their favorite fairs or shows, long after the sheep have left the farm . I feel very fortunate that as part of my job I get to travel across the country getting to take pictures of sheep shows - I love shooting both the sheep and the people, and if I’m lucky, I’ll get to capture some of those special moments . One example of such a moment took place during the Corriedale show at the Ohio State Fair . Two children, neither of whom were tall enough to handle the front end, had four little hands doing their best to set the hind feet of the sizable but very patient ram. That hind leg was adjusted several times while the pair visibly debated where it should go. It was apparent from how patient that ram was that those two had spent a lot of time in the barn at home . Many special moments that take place in the barn linger long after the trailers have gone home. Those kids may not remember that exact class five years from now, but they will remember their time in the barn learning many of the aforementioned life lessons and making priceless memories with their family.

Tiffany Deakin, Editor Some housekeeping: We’re excited to share that we’ll be offering a new photo site soon, making it easier to view and order the thousands of pictures we take annually. On the sales side of things, we’ve decided to cease all sale management. This decision was not made lightly. The 2022 Great Lakes Sheep Sale in Wooster, Ohio was the final of its kind, and there will be no future events . The National Lincoln, Border Leicester & Merino Sales that had previously taken place in Wooster as part of Great Lakes have all moved to now take place at the 2023 Ohio Showcase Sale held earlier in May in Greenville. We also within the coming months plan to offer our readers a digital subscription in tandem with their print subscription.

USDA Looks to Level the Playing Field for Producers

The COVID-19 pandemic brought home to farmers, workers and consumers the harms caused by bottlenecks in the center of America’s agricultural and food systems. The pandemic exposed the risks and dangers created by many of today’s production systems, which value hyper-efficiency over competition and resiliency. Moreover, longstanding challenges of market concentration and unbalanced market power – which have been part of the agricultural sector for decades – have in many cases worsened. This report highlights the United States Department of Agriculture’s robust and aggressive plan to decrease concentration and increase competition in the agricultural sector and to safeguard against future harm to our nation’s agricultural and food systems. Concentration undermines economic resiliency and robust price competition. It lowers farmers’ and ranchers’ earnings, hamstrings their ability to compete and limits the ability for rural economies to secure, robust, selfsustaining prosperity. President Joe Biden’s Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy puts competition at the core of the Biden-Harris Administration’s economic agenda and calls for a “whole-of-government approach” to promoting competition. The historic Executive Order directs 72 specific actions across the federal government and includes important directives to USDA to support competition and fairness in livestock

and poultry markets, seeds and other inputs, retail food markets and more. The steps are complementary to and supportive of the goals of the Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains. Since President Biden issued the Executive Order on Competition in July, USDA has taken a range of actions to tackle competition issues in agricultural markets. To address these large and complex problems, USDA is using all of the tools available, including working in concert with the rest of the administration. Among other USDA initiatives, the order included the following directive: to ensure that farmers have greater opportunities to access markets and receive a fair return for their products, not later than 180 days after the date of this order, submit a report to the Chair of the White House Competition Council, with a plan to promote competition in the agricultural industries and to support value-added agriculture and alternative food distribution systems. This report responds to that directive and lays out USDA’s approach to promoting competition in agricultural markets. Highlights of USDA’s efforts include: • Launching an unprecedented multi-billion dollar investment plan to directly incentivize competition in food processing and fertilizer, creating more market opportunities and input options for producers.

Reinvigorating USDA’s century-old fair and competitive market laws to establish a regime that counters unfair and anticompetitive practices and empowers producers and growers. • Partnering with the Department of Justice to enforce antitrust laws vigorously. This includes standing up a new one-stop shop at FarmerFairness.gov to make it easier to report complaints of potential violations, with confidentiality protections and whistleblower protections against retaliation for reporting criminal antitrust concerns. • Working in concert with the White House and other agencies to call out bad actors and firms that are padding their profits at the expense of farmers, ranchers, workers and consumers. • Partnering with the Federal Trade Commission to enhance access to retail markets for farmers and smaller food processors. • Working with the Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office to promote access to affordable seeds, fertilizer and other inputs. • Reviewing USDA programs to encourage fair competition and ensure that they are not inadvertently supporting systems and relationships that are prone to abuse. • Providing technical assistance and support as Congress considers legislation to modernize and improve transparency and price discovery in livestock markets. • Enhancing value-added market access and protecting those markets from consumer confusion. • Promoting competition in transportation networks that producers depend on.

Proposed Bills Would Generate Additional Competition The cattle industry and policymakers agree – we need to increase U.S. beef packing capacity, ideally by adding new competitors to the marketplace. The Livestock Marketing Association is leading the charge to change an outdated rule keeping livestock auction owners from investing in small and regional packing plants. LMA is pleased to have great congressional partners in this effort, as well as the support of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, United States Cattlemen’s Association, American Sheep Industry Association, National Pork Producers Council and many state-based groups. Livestock auction markets like mine are in the competition business. We take pride in working for our consignors. It is our job to get the top dollar possible for the livestock our customers trust us to sell on their behalf. However, auctions can only serve the best interests of their consignors if there are multiple

active bidders and buyers. Many auctions have fewer packer buyers than they once did due to consolidation . Some want to be part of the solution by investing in new or expanding packing facilities that can compete with other packers for livestock . In an auction, an additional buyer drives up competition and prices. Unfortunately, an outdated regulation (9 CFR 201 .67) prohibits livestock auction owners from owning or investing in meat packing businesses . In today’s environment, where the cattle industry is focused on wanting more packers to compete for livestock, we should be encouraging investment in packing businesses, not prohibiting it . In fact, the public nature and competitive environment of a livestock auction

makes procurement of cattle through the auction an ideal scenario, although unlikely to be the main procurement method for a large fed cattle plant . The Amplifying Processing of Livestock in the United States Act (H .R . 7438) would help address this issue by allowing livestock auction owners to also own or invest in small and regional packing plants . The Senate companion bill is the Expanding Local Meat Processing Act (S .4709) . To understand why the prohibition existed in the first place, you need to think about the industry structure at the time. The Packer & Stockyards Act, which turned 100 last year, dates back to the terminal stockyards of the early 1900s and issues with a lack of separation between buying

and selling agents in this environment . At that time, many producers sent livestock to terminal markets on rail cars and were not present when they were sold. The market agency selling on commission in that context was an individual who represented livestock to the big packers, who all had slaughter facilities located alongside the terminal stockyards. This predates the current, transparent method of selling livestock at an open auction to the highest bidder . Unlike the terminal stockyards of days gone by, sales at livestock auctions today occur in a sale ring with an auctioneer driving price up between competing bidders. Sellers and buyers both attend the auction and can raise concerns if they do not like the way the sale is conducted. In many

cases, these auctions are also broadcast online for viewers and recorded. In addition to the natural openness an auction environment brings, P&S Act regulations, such as 9 CFR 201.56, further require transparency. For example, P&S mandates livestock auctions sell consigned livestock openly, at the highest bid. The same regulation also requires disclosure to the seller when someone affiliated with the auction buys livestock out of the sale. These rules function well in other classes of livestock, such as calves or feeder cattle, where it is common for a buying business to have a common owner with the livestock auction and often the result is higher prices for the consignors. Allowing livestock auction owners to invest in small and regional packers will create competition against large packing entities that already exist. Large packers will not be able to operate livestock auction markets as there is a threshold cutoff of 2,000 head of cattle/day or 700,000 head of cattle/year in the bills. This would keep the prohibition so livestock auctions could not invest in a packer greater than that size. At the same time, the current 10 largest beef packers would be prohibited from also owning or investing in an auction market. We’ve had LMA member auctions interested in owning local locker plants or being part of an investment group building a regional facility. In the case of a regional facility, we need to allow it to be a large enough scale to be successful. Balancing this with the desire to keep the largest packers from growing in market share is how the threshold cutoff was developed. At the end of the day, perhaps the fundamental question is whether the government should control who is permitted to invest in packing capacity. Under current rules, USDA excludes a large group of knowledgeable and passionate livestock industry participants from creating more competition for slaughter livestock. I know many livestock auction owners who would rather not get involved in the packing industry, which is fine. The problem is they do not currently have a right to choose how to invest their funds and knowledge back into the industry. It does not seem right that this prohibition exists and, at the same time, packers can

currently buy and shut down livestock auctions and then use the facility as a buying station, which is a fixed facility drop off point for livestock in the country. These buying stations lack the benefit of a transparent auction setting to arrive at true price discovery. Producers are paid what that packer is willing to give that day, and that price becomes less competitive over time. Packers are also able to buy packing facilities from others and continue to operate them as packing plants, subject to DOJ review, whether or not these bills pass. Regardless of how you feel about it, packers today can also legally own, finance or align themselves with feed yards. However, a livestock auction owner or manager cannot own or invest in a packing facility regardless of size, scope, if the auction owner is active in packer business decision making, or if the livestock processed are procured at the auction business or not. In one situation, we had a LMA member auction that also had a local meat marketing business. They were having cattle custom harvested in an unrelated facility and selling the meat. USDA went after them, claiming the definition of packer is so broad that they were in violation of the rule having these two complementary businesses. In that case, the family had to separate the two businesses. You can’t tell me that doesn’t feel like a double standard, with livestock auctions being subject to a different set of rules than other businesses in our industry. This bill may not fix every issue the industry has with packing capacity and fed cattle marketing. It does not claim to. However, it is a big step in the right direction. In today’s environment, where the cattle industry is focused on additional shackle space and wanting more packers to compete for livestock, the benefit of new packers entering the marketplace far outweigh the risks contemplated by the dated regulation currently on the books. Anyone with questions or ideas about these bills is encouraged to reach out to Livestock Marketing Association Vice President of Government and Industry Affairs and Legal, Chelsea Good, at cgood@lmaweb.com or 816305-9540.

Wool LDP Available to Producers The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Marketing Assistance Loan and Loan Deficiency Payment programs could provide welcome assistance for wool producers. Currently, the ungraded LDP program offers a 40-cent LDP (per pound grease). This has been the going rate for the past two years for ungraded wools, as graded wools have varied from week to week per grade. This summer, there was a higher LDP payment – $1.22 per pound clean – for graded wools between 23.6 and 25.9 micron. There’s also a 9-cent (per pound clean) LDP available for wools between 20.6 and 22 micron. Current rates are posted on the American Sheep Industry Association website each Tuesday afternoon. Producers with questions about the Wool LDP Program can contact their local Farm Service Agency office. Go to https://www.sheepusa.org/issuesgovernmentprograms-woolldp for more details and current rates.

Kentucky Producers Need Assistance The Southeast Kentucky Sheep Producers Association is organizing relief efforts specifically for sheep and goat farmers in the flood-stricken mountain counties of eastern Kentucky. The association’s first convoy of trucks and box trailers loaded with sheep & goat feed and dog food will go tomorrow to Hazard and Hindman, where supplies will be distributed to farmers who suffered major damage. The association hopes that this will be the first of many trips into the mountains with loads of feed, hay, fencing, farm supplies, building materials, etc. SEKSPA Treasurer Emily Merritt has created a Go Fund Me account, and is asking for folks to donate funds that will be used to provide necessary supplies. SEKSPA’s Board of Directors have volunteered to administer and coordinate all donated funds and materials. Monetary donations can be sent through Go Fund Me, but the association is also looking for individuals who could give actual materials – feed, hay and fencing in particular – provide labor for rebuilding fences, assist with clean-up, and/or make deliveries. The need also remains urgent for anyone who can temporarily keep sheep or goats on their pastures, since most bottomland pastures are covered with a thick layer of mud.

Lamb Summit Pushes Industry Members to Take Action The second American Lamb Summit kicks off August 8 in East Lansing, MI . Its sponsors, the American Lamb Board (ALB) and Premier 1 Supplies, say to expect to be challenged and pushed out of the status quo. “My experience has convinced me that no product is so good that it can’t be improved. Industry members have good intentions… but boasting about US Lamb is not always helpful . Better to focus on what needs to be done to improve it,” says Stan Potratz, founder of Premier 1 Supplies and past member of the ALB . “We’ve gained a huge amount of knowledge in the past 2 to 5 years that tells us what lamb quality issues are most important to fix. Our goal with the Lamb Summit is to share ideas, educate, and provide support to producers who want to not only survive in this industry, but thrive,” according to ALB Chairman Peter Camino . The capacity crowd won’t be spending a lot of time in typical presentations. They will be sampling lamb like a consumer taste panel would do, witness the use of ultrasound to measure muscle quality in live lambs, go into the Michigan State University (MSU) Meat Lab to evaluate lamb carcasses, and testing their

skills at visually assessing animal quality with and without the aid of genetic data . And there’s more … pricing lamb for direct sale to consumers, top line information from a checkoff study measuring lamb’s carbon footprint, and even cookery education. Michigan may be the perfect case study on how the American Lamb industry is changing, and how there’s viability in distinct market segments because of its significant finishing and packing industry focused on the traditional market, while the Detroit metro region is home to one of the largest non-traditional lamb markets, says Richard Ehrhardt, PhD, who is senior extension specialist-small ruminants at Michigan State University. If you aren’t attending, the ALB will be posting updates on its Lamb Checkoff Facebook page during the Summit . The Lamb Summit online has conference information and will be updated with presentations and reports . It is also working with leading ag media to share information during and following the Summit, such as the Western Ag Network, Ag Information Network, RFD-TV news, and more. However, there is no live stream of the conference .

USDA Announces Census of Agri. Details America’s farmers and ranchers will soon have the opportunity to be represented in the

nation’s only comprehensive and impartial agriculture data for every state, county and territory. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will mail the 2022 Census of Agriculture to millions of agriculture producers across the 50 states and Puerto Rico this fall . The 2022 Census of Agriculture will be mailed in phases, starting with an invitation to respond online in November, followed by paper questionnaires in December. Farm operations of all sizes, urban and rural, which produced and sold, or normally would have sold, $1,000 or more of agricultural product in 2022 are included in the ag census . “Census of Agriculture data are widely used by federal and local governments, agribusinesses, trade associations, extension educators, and many others to inform decisions about policy and farm programs and services that aid producers and rural communities,” said NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer. “By responding to the Census of Agriculture – by being represented in these important data – producers are literally helping to shape their futures .” Collected in service to American agriculture since 1840 and now conducted every five years by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, the Census of Agriculture tells the story and shows the value of U.S. agriculture. It highlights land use and ownership, producer characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures, among other topics . Between ag census years, NASS considers revisions to the questionnaire to document changes and emerging trends in the industry. Changes to the 2022 questionnaire include new questions

The American Lamb was raised by Sky Pilot Farm near Longmont, CO, and prepared by Chef Biju Thomas, innovative self-taught chef, author of the FeedZone cookbooks, and cook to some of the best athletes in the world. Consumers fortunate enough to attend this Secret Supper were treated to Chef Thomas’ American Lamb Shoulder Vindaloo, a curry dish inspired by his Indian heritage. Sky Pilot Farm owner Chloe Johnson attended the supper to engage in meaningful conversations about American Lamb, the people who produce it and regenerative agriculture.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and defend the previous administration’s delisting of the gray wolf. “Livestock producers are directly impacted by the species management decisions made by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, especially when it comes to species with significant federal footprints. The decision to allow the coalition to intervene in this case demonstrates what we have known all along: livestock producers deserve to have their voices heard on delisting the gray wolf,” said Kaitlynn Glover, executive director of PLC and NCBA Natural Resources. “We look forward to engaging in this case to defend the delisting of a species that has so clearly recovered.” “ASI is pleased with this action to allow these agricultural organizations to actively participate and seek a positive legal decision that supports our farmers and ranchers,” said American

Sheep Industry Association Executive Director Peter Orwick. “AFBF appreciates the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for recognizing agriculture’s interest in defending the delisting of the gray wolf. Farmers and ranchers share the goal of a healthy and thriving ecosystem, and when the gray wolf exceeded recovery goals, it became an Endangered Species Act success story,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “With populations now thriving, management of the species should be the responsibility of the states, which can more effectively determine the most appropriate actions to manage gray wolf populations.” In the decision the court of appeals wrote, “the district court abused its discretion by denying permissive intervention.” With intervention granted, NCBA, PLC, ASI and our partners will now be full participants in the case defending the gray wolf delisting.

LMIC Offers Sheep and Lamb Market Update Drought continues to plague much of the Western United States and conditions in the Southern plains are worsening. Deteriorating range and pasture conditions are forcing producers to place more lambs on feed, which are at levels that have not been seen since 2018. Since the start of the year, monthly lambs on feed have been running about 40,000 to 68,000 head above year ago levels. Weekly yearling lamb slaughter is averaging about 31,000 head or about 2 percent below last year following the Easter holiday season. Elevated lambs on feed and lower slaughter levels have led to a counter-seasonal increase in yearling lamb dressed weights, which have averaged nearly 70 pounds since the first week of May or 11 percent above the same period in 2021. Higher dressed weights have partially offset the lower slaughter levels, but year-to-date weekly lamb production through mid-July is down 7 percent from a year earlier. At the start of 2022, feeder lamb prices – three-market average: Colo., Texas and S.D. – reached historic levels with a peak of $376.25 per cwt. in mid-January. Since then, those high prices have steadily tracked lower with recent weeks falling below the prior year’s levels. About a year ago, slaughter lamb prices – national negotiated live – reached the historic high of $268.34 per cwt. Prices have moved lower since that point, with the last two weeks falling below $180 per cwt. Current prices – when compared to the record highs set a year ago – have fallen about $90 per cwt. Compared to the five-year average of about $150, prices are still above typical levels. The first week of August last year saw the lamb cutout reach a record level of $639 per cwt. Last week, the lamb cutout value was $537 per cwt., which is nearly $100 lower and since the start of the year the cutout value has fallen about 11 percent or $70. The five-year average lamb cutout value halfway through the year is typically about $350 per cwt. Although

THE BANNER


the current value is lower than a year ago, it is still historically high. The Livestock Marketing Information Center is expecting commercial sheep and lamb slaughter to decline about 6 percent this year. A forecast 2-percent increase in weights will partially offset the decline in slaughter numbers, leading to about a 4-percent decrease in lamb production . Ample lambs on feed are expected to pressure feeder lamb prices for the second half of the year with a forecasted decrease of 12 to 25 percent. Slaughter lamb prices seasonally move lower during the second half of the year and prices are expected to be about 2 to 4 percent lower than 2021 . The lamb cutout value continues to remain well above typical levels despite demand uncertainties and economic recession .

Audit Looking for Producer Input Colorado State University is asking sheep producers to participate in a survey as part of the National Lamb Quality Audit. Producers can access this survey via a mobile device or laptop using the link below . The National Lamb Quality Audit will help identify concerns and opportunities that producers might have, as well as establish a baseline of producer’s definition of sustainability and what that term means to them . Here is basically the outline for NLQA for 2022: 1 . Conduct successful portions of previous audits, such as live animal and carcass in-plant evaluations (n=5 plants). 2. Visit with retail and foodservice establishments and interview individuals that service lamb consumers representing more than eight major cities. 3. Baseline an additional quality attribute – sustainability – perception based through survey questions and well as identify producer concerns and opportunities in the industry. Go to https://colostate.az1.qualtrics.com/ jfe/form/SV_6XArDHlMdDE0us6 to take the survey.

Ag Groups Request Support for Beagle Brigade The American Sheep Industry Association joined a coalition of agricultural associations this week in calling for leaders in both the U .S . Senate and House to support passage of the Beagle Brigade Act of 2022 . The bill would authorize the National Detector Dog Training Center. The center is the primary training facility for the so-called “Beagle Brigade,” which helps protect America’s natural resources and agricultural producers from foreign animal and plant diseases and pests . “The $1 trillion U .S . agriculture sector is a key component of the American economy and is fundamental to our national security,” read the letter to the majority and minority leaders in both the Senate and the House . “The

introduction of foreign animal and plant pests and diseases costs the American economy tens of billions of dollars annually. The Agriculture Canine Teams of the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection perform critically important agricultural inspections at the nation’s ports of entry. These teams play a vital role in trade and travel safety, and work every day to prevent the introduction of harmful foreign animal and plant diseases and pests into the United States . The introduction of foreign animal diseases – such as Foot and Mouth Disease, African Swine Fever, or virulent Newcastle Disease, or plant diseases, such as tomato brown rugose fruit virus, maize lethal necrosis, or citrus greening disease – would have a devastating impact on U .S . agricultural producers, their communities, and the economy if introduced into the United States .

“The U .S . Department of Agriculture trains these dogs and their CBP handlers at the National Detector Dog Training Center in Newnan, Georgia. These specially trained teams are utilized by CBP to sniff out potentially contaminated products at U.S. ports of entry, and prevent their introduction into the U .S . The Center also oversees the private adoption of retirement-age trained dogs and dogs that do not complete training. Congress has consistently supported this work, including through the passage of the Protecting America’s Food and Agriculture Act of 2019, which authorized the training of additional canine teams . The Beagle Brigade Act would provide specific authorization for this highly successful training center and lay the groundwork for its continued success in the future. It would also require a report from USDA on current and emerging threats to

Young Entrepreneurs Tour Diverse Michigan Agriculture

tth haatt W Wo orrkkss!!

A small, but diverse group of aspiring producers and researchers took part in the American Sheep Industry Association’s Young Entrepreneurs tour of the equally diverse Michigan agricultural trade this week following their attendance at the Lamb Summit in Lansing, Mich . Stops at two sheep farms and a centuryold wool mill were absolute highlights of the trip. But the opportunity to venture outside the sheep industry offered the group the chance to not only learn about the issues facing the state’s farmers in other commodities, but also the chance to expose those same farmers to the ways in which they might benefit from the use of sheep in their own operations . ASI Young Entrepreneurs Co-Chair Cody Chambliss of South Dakota was quick to point out the benefits of cover crop grazing at Laracha Farms on Wednesday, where the tour visited a sugar beet field. The company grows a variety of crops, from corn to pickles. Equally interested in the benefits of sheep were the folks at Cellar 1914 on Thursday. The centuryold farm has been home to a variety of crops through the years, most prominently cherries. It also ran a herd of beef cows at one time . But the next generation has transitioned the farm into a winery and tasting room that caters to the Northern Michigan summer tourist crowd . The winery’s ag tourism concept might benefit from a small sheep flock that could graze the vineyard and cherry orchard, while providing yet another attraction for the tourists . The YE group heard how imported products have greatly affected the sugar beet and cherry markets in the United States . Tour participants

shared that similar issues are a problem in the sheep industry. The tour began on Wednesday morning with a stop at Zeilinger Wool Company in Frankenmuth, Mich. The mill has been familyowned for four generations and produces everything from roving and yarn to bedding and socks. Among the company’s products are some created with wool from Great Lakes Lamb in West Branch, Mich . Tour participants got the complete Great Lakes Lamb experience as they stopped for lamb burgers at Highway Brewing Company before visiting the farm on Wednesday afternoon. “I really liked the kind of farm to table experience we had on the first day where we had lamb burgers at lunch and then visited the farm that produced the lamb immediately afterward,” said Agnes Guillo, a graduate student at Cornell University in New York state. “And we had seen some of their wool that same day, as well. That was exciting .” Jim and Sherrie Bristol and their daughter and son-in-law, Elaine and Rick Palm, completed the experience with lamb brats for the group upon arrival at the farm . The next morning began with a stop at Matchett Sheep Farm in Charlevoix, Mich ., where brothers Isaac and Noah Matchett have developed an intensive, rotational grazing system that is home to nearly 2,000 Polypay ewes . “I hadn’t been to Matchett’s before,” said Michigan Sheep Producers Association Executive Director Samantha Ludlam . Members of the state’s young entrepreneurs committee planned much of the tour. “I’ve known Isaac and Noah forever, but it was great to finally set foot on their farm and see everything they’ve been working so hard on for as long I’ve known them.” The group got a final look at the state’s many agricultural offerings – Michigan is the secondmost agriculturally diverse state in the country – with a stop at Harrietta Hills Trout Farm that afternoon. The farm produces fish mostly for food – some go to private ponds – and once again has been affected by imported product in recent years. The two days came to a close with a tour of the Michigan State University Sheep Teaching and Research Farm, conducted by MSU Senior Extension Specialist Richard Ehrhardt, Ph .D . In addition to a tour of the relatively new facility, Dr. Ehrhardt talked about a solar array project that will take over some of the university’s sheep and cattle pastures in the years to come. It will provide a firsthand opportunity for him to study solar grazing and the role sheep can play in the growing industry.

Lamb Board Undertakes Strategic Planning

The world isn’t the same place it was in 2018 when the American Lamb Board (ALB) released its last long range plan . As the board undertakes the development of a new strategic plan, its facing dynamics never before encountered by the industry. “Instability in our economy, economic viability of sheep production, consumer uncertainty, increases in non-traditional markets, domestic industry infrastructure deficiencies, supply chain issues and increasing pressures from imports are examples of critical issues top of mind with the board,” says Chairman Peter Camino. “We are determined to find ways for the US Lamb checkoff to help our industry through our role in promotion, research and producer outreach .” The current plan, which expires in 2022, prioritizes increasing the quality and consistency of American Lamb and regaining market share from imports . Developed and implemented on the heels of the Industry Roadmap, it was a significant refocusing of resources. “We need to give consumers more reasons to desire and ask for US Lamb even though we are premium priced,” adds Camino . Our assessment of the past four years shows that we’ve made progress in many areas, but we need to push harder and farther .” For example, the current plan calls for an increase in retail sales of lamb of 10%. The latest IRI sales data and analysis shows a 9% increase since 2017. “We’ve done well with our promotional efforts to get awareness of lamb as a year-round option to add spark to meals,” says Camino.

Are You Prepared for an FMD Outbreak? What if there was an outbreak of foot and mouth disease on our country’s doorstep? This is the case for sheep producers in Australia who are nervously watching the outbreak in Indonesia. South Africa’s wool industry is experiencing the dire consequences of not being able to export to China due to an FMD outbreak earlier this year. If FMD came knocking on the United States’ door, would it be able to walk right into your flock or are you taking steps to protect your sheep? The American Sheep Industry Association values preparedness, which is why it developed the Secure Sheep and Wool Plan with enhanced bio-security tools and more. At the beginning of an FMD outbreak, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends a 72-hour national movement standstill for all cloven-hoofed livestock and their products. After this time, movement controls will continue in the areas around infected animals, throughout a state or even a region. Restarting movement will require a special permit. The permit will be issued by regulatory officials after a producer meets certain requirements. How prepared are you to meet those requirements so your business can continue? The SSWS Plan was developed to help producers protect their flocks from FMD and voluntarily prepare before an FMD outbreak, rather during the chaos of an outbreak. The plan provides guidance for producers who have sheep with no evidence of FMD infection to meet movement permit requirements. ASI supports several efforts to protect America’s sheep producers from foreign animal and plant diseases and pests, which is why it developed the SSWS Plan. As the association monitors the situation in the southern hemisphere, now is a good time to learn how to protect your flock and business in the event of an FMD outbreak. Go to https://securesheepwool.org/ to learn more and access valuable SSWS Plan resources.

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2022

Festival to Spotlight Women in Ranching This year’s Sheep Tales Gathering at the Trailing of the Sheep Festival in Idaho will present unique stories from three different ranches in the West. Marcia Barinaga’s ranching story is steeped in her family’s Basque heritage, starting a ranch on her own in California. What began as a dairy farm has now transitioned into one that produces fiber. Alongside Marcia will be Julie Hansmire’s story of continuing the family ranch after losing her husband. Although a hard-working rancher by day (and often night), Julie tries to make time for a life outside of ranching in Colorado. Also, not to be missed are the stories of the mother/daughter team of Andrée and Bianca Soares, who manage the family’s commercial sheep and goat business, sharing a commitment to both targeted grazing and protecting the land from the threat of wildfire. This conversation will be moderated by multi-generation Idaho rancher Mike Guerry. Each fall, the Trailing of the Sheep Festival honors the 150+ year annual tradition of moving sheep (trailing) from high mountain summer pastures down through the valley to traditional winter grazing and lambing areas in the south. This annual migration is living history and

the focus of a unique and authentic festival that celebrates the people, arts, cultures and traditions of Idaho’s sheep ranching families, while highlighting the principal contributors – the Basques, Scottish and Peruvians. The five-day festival – Oct. 5-9 this year – includes non-stop activities in multiple venues focusing on history, folk arts, a sheep folk life fair, lamb culinary offerings, a wool festival with classes and workshops, music, dance, storytelling, and championship sheepdog trials. In addition, the always entertaining Big Sheep Parade with 1,500 sheep hoofing it down Main Street in Ketchum, Idaho, remains a highlight of the festivities. Say You Saw It in

Experience Wool Cornerstone Blog Features Provides Solar Grazing Legislative Update Nick Armentrout and his wife own a typical small New England farm in southern Maine . His involvement with the American sheep industry started in 2008 when he began sourcing fine American wool and production facilities for his father in-law’s new venture: an American-made clothier called Ramblers Way Farm. During the course of his career, he developed an understanding of the value of conserving working landscapes. So when a local dairy farm down the road installed a large solar array, he started doing research on solar grazing – a method of vegetation control around solar panels that utilizes livestock (predominantly sheep) instead of mowing machinery or herbicides . The animals can clear solar sites of weeds with minimal cost or damage to the infrastructure . “Solar-grazing contracts open up new acreage, which is a game-changer,” says Armentrout . “Both small and large sheep producers can realize additional value from their animals. This is especially promising for farmers where owning or leasing land for their animals is prohibitively expensive. Thanks to solar farms, they now have access to new acres where they can turn the cost of grazing into a source of profit.” To read the full story, go to https://www. americanwool.org/solar-grazing/.

The American Sheep Industry Association’s lobbying firm – Cornerstone Government Affairs – offered an update on legislative issues in Washington, D .C . House Passes First FY 2023 Minibus Appropriations Package The U .S . House approved a six-bill, minibus appropriations package on a 220 to 207 vote . The package includes the Fiscal Year 2023 Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies; Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies; Financial Services and General Government; Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; and Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies funding bills . The Agriculture appropriations bill provides $27 .2 billion – an 8-percent increase compared to FY 2022 . The bill includes language supporting the U .S . Sheep Experiment Station, the National Scrapie Eradication Program, Wildlife Damage Management, and Wildlife Services Methods Development . Several amendments were adopted on the floor. A division-by-division summary can be found here . The text of the Rules Committee Print can be found here . A list of adopted amendments can be found here . The Rule for

H .R . 8294 – with a list of all amendments and a description provided by the sponsor – can be found here . The U .S . Senate is expected to release its FY 2023 appropriations bills sometime next week . House Holds Hearing on H-2A and H-2B The House Committee on Education and Labor Subcommittee on Workforce Protections convened a hearing to review and assess the impact H-2 Visa Programs – H-2A and H-2B – have on workers . Members and witnesses raised concerns that H-2A employers are discriminating against American farm workers and the lack of protection from extortion and workforce abuse endured by workers. Members highlighted the need for the same labor protections afforded to workers in other industries . Members also criticized the Biden Administration’s immigration policy and handling of the Southern border and said that Congress cannot meaningfully discuss reforming the H-2 Programs until the border is secure and under control . Witnesses noted that employers participating in the H-2 programs – who comply with the many regulations and are subject to oversight from DOL – are frustrated that other employers are hiring undocumented workers with virtually no governmental involvement . It was also stated that from the worker perspective, workers participating in the programs to legally enter the United States are being deterred from doing so due to the high number of migrants crossing the border illegally that still receive similar jobs to those received by H-2 participants Witnesses encouraged Congress to pass the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, which they stated would give opportunities for farm workers to work in the United States with a path to permanent residency. Additionally, witnesses advocated for the passage of the Fairness for Farm Workers Act, which they said would protect farm workers and afford them the same rights as workers in other industries .

Condé Nast Traveler Highlights Wool Condé Nast Traveler offered online readers a look at wool clothing they should add to their travel wardrobes. “When you think of wool clothing, your mind probably goes to chunky socks, stiff slacks, or expensive cashmere that you’re afraid to ruin. But a recent push toward sustainable fashion has put wool under a new spotlight, with more brands using the fabric to create clothes that are both functional and fashionable, and wearable in all seasons. “But what makes wool the perfect fabric for travel clothes? Some may say that wool is too thick and itchy to be comfortable, but wool comes in many forms. Merino wool – for instance – is an ultra-fine and super soft wool that’s lightweight and breathable, creating clothes that are great for adventure travel and city trips in both cold and warm climates. Wool is also odor-resistant – the absorbent fibers in the fabric wick away sweat and lock in odor – so even if you sweat through a wool shirt during a hike in the Adirondacks or a summer day in Paris, once it dries it will be odorless and ready to wear without washing, making it easier to pack light. Wool is also wrinkle-proof, so opting for a wool T-shirt or shift dress on your travels means that you’ll look fresh and polished, even if you forgot to pack a steamer. “While adventure and performance clothing brands have been harnessing the power of wool for decades, recent fashion-forwards brands like Babaa and Nadaam are putting a stylish spin on the material, creating everything from shoes to dresses – and of course, sweaters – that are perfect for today’s travelers.” Go to https://www.cntraveler.com/story/ wool-clothing-shoes-travel-essentials to find out which eight pieces of clothing the magazine recommended for frequent travelers.

“There is a federal definition, and states can have their own definition, but it has to meet the federal requirements,” Busch said. “Some states decided to go above and beyond that. Basically, it means that the veterinarian is familiar with you and your operation and animals. Usually it requires a visit, and that’s where it can vary from state to state.” In addition to listening to the podcast, look for more information on the upcoming changes in the September issue of ASI’s Sheep Industry News.

Podcast Looks at Accelerated Lambing Richard Ehrhardt, Ph.D., of Michigan State University joins Aug. ASI Research Update podcast to discuss Accelerated Lambing Systems. “I’ve always been interested in sheep production, of course,” Ehrhardt said. “My introduction (to accelerated lambing) came when I was at Cornell University in the late 80s and early 90s. I was a grad student there and they worked pretty extensively on accelerated systems. It’s the way they managed their program. So, I got exposed to it that way, and it really benefited my research because I could get sheep to study any time of the year.” Ehrhardt was also exposed to the practical side of area farmers using accelerated lambing techniques developed at the university when he worked as a shearer during his college years. “As a sheep producer, I started my own farm in the early 2000s, and that gave me a chance to put the things I learned both at Cornell and in the field together in my own farm and see what really works and what doesn’t. Eventually, I came to Michigan State and really started studying these systems a little more formally.”

Research Update Podcast: Antibiotic Use Regulations This month’s American Sheep Industry Association Research Update Podcast takes a look at the use of antibiotics and upcoming changes to domestic regulations with veterinarian Rosie Busch from the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The Food and Drug Administration will implement a new guidance recommending that drug manufacturers label all antibiotics as prescription-only beginning in June of 2023. “That means we won’t be able to see these medically important antibiotics over the counter at feed stores or even if we’re buying them online,” Busch said. “Things like Valley Vet and other online pharmacies, we’ll see them there, but they will require a prescription in order to be able to buy them.” It’s also important to note that veterinarians can’t legally write a prescription for antibiotics unless they have a veterinarian-client patient relationship.

Ann Knowles, President 309/333-4880 • ann.runner@gmail.com www.ablasheep.org July 11, 2022 Meeting Minutes Call to Order: 8:36 pm EST Attendance: Stephanie LaRochelle, Colin Siegmund, Siri Swanson, Kurt Burns, Ann Knowles, Tiffany Deakin, Lydia Smith, Jennifer Baird, Jessica Feindt Secretary’s Report: minutes submitted by Siri motion to approve made by Jessica, second by Kurt, motion passed unanimously Treasurer’s Report: submitted by Stephanie • Stephanie has been working with our insurance agent for the upcoming renewal. Jack helped pull together an annual report

to qualify for director and officer coverage. Options for coverage are for a $1 million limit with annual premium $1,949 or $500K limit with premium of $1,485. $2,000 was put into the budget but a previous discussion concluded the $500K should be adequate. Everyone agrees on the lesser coverage. • Not reflected on the treasurer’s report (the bill just came in from AR today) is $102.09 for ballot mailing, $934.81 for newsletter ($458 for printing, $176 for mailing, $300 for layout). With those costs it might be worth revisiting the options of emailing newsletters. - The newsletter costs are still within budget if two more issues are sent this year. Membership/Registration Report: Another 114 registration, 49 transfers, and 3 memberships from the past month. • Stephanie brought to attention that the budget accounts for $10,000 in income from registration and transfer fees. So far, we only have $3,500 in income for the year. o 2022 to date: 274 registrations o 2021: 758 o 2015 to 2021 (except for 2020): average 700-800 registration per year • A monthly report from past years may be worth getting from AR to better understand cash flow throughout the year. Motion to approve made by Colin, second by Jessica, motion passed unanimously Committee Reports: Newsletter: Lydia has been getting familiar with the template provided by Tiffany and contacting folks for material. She has an article about preparing rams for breeding, one about Cache Valley virus, and is working on getting show results. Send links and such to Lydia for “resource” section. Tiffany will send Lydia show results for Great Lakes and MD Sheep & Wool. Lydia’s deadline getting it to AR by August 15? • Ann asked if we want to get set up to distribute this one via email. If yes, it should be with a link instead of a large email attachment. Tiffany can help show Lydia how to do that. Website: Tiffany apologized for the delayed updates. All updates have been forwarded to the new Banner staff responsible for website maintenance. Publicity/Promotion: n/a Youth Activities: Holliday is not present. Sarah Jakeman was the ABLA representative at All American. Jenny was also there and reported there were 15-17 Border Leicester youth with a few less at NEYSS. Border Leicester exhibitors received gifts from ABLA (thank you to the members who organize that.) It was a great opportunity to meet people and put faces to names. Old Business: • Website Redesign: Siri reported that the committee has begun searching for new web hosts used by other breed associations and sheep organizations. The only quote they have at this time is from Novel Design ($1000 one-time design fee and $225 per quarter for maintenance/updates). The committee will continue to explore options. o Tiffany asked about the status of the online database system. Ann has been in communication with Doug and Stephanie has paid him the $250 down payment (half of the set-up fee). He had questions about billing, PayPal etc. With online registration

THE BANNER


payment can be sent through PayPal but how does AR receive that? What about membership fees which have traditionally gone directly to the treasurer? We need to clarify with Jeff what they need at AR. National Sale Location: Jenny spoke with Pat Myers about Border Leicesters entering at the Ohio Showcase Sale . Pat said she will mention it when they meet again in the fall. The question remains, when is the best time of year for the sale? Tiffany says they’ve received feedback from other breeds that earlier dates in May sales are problematic. o Will the wool show remain a part of the National Sale if moved? Email Provider: Jessica is waiting to hear back still on some quotes but will send everything in a chart to review. We have been denied from all free/discounted options available to nonprofits that Jessica has applied to because ABLA is a 501(c) (5) and not a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The main difference between the two being regulations about lobbying. If we were a (c)(3) we could still advocate for sheep and wool causes and make small contributions . Ann asked how much paperwork would be involved to make the switch. Jessica thinks it’s only one form to change tax status, but the status is also included in ABLA’s bylaws. Jessica will continue looking into this . New Business: Youth Sheep Expo sponsorship: This is a youth show in Greenfield Indiana in July started during the pandemic when many shows were canceled. They have asked for us to consider becoming a breed sponsor . ABLA sponsored it the first year and there was a nice little Border Leicester show according to Jenny. No one is sure how many Border Leicesters participate now. Tiffany plans to attend this year and will check in on the Border Leicester show . This is late to ask for donations due by the end of the month. The budget has already been set for the year, so we’ll wait and see how many Border Leicesters show up this year and revisit it during the budget next year. Addition of a Bred Ewe sale: Ann brought up the idea of an online bred ewe sale for everyone to think about. What would be a good time? Which online platform to use? Would it benefit breeders? Thoughts and opinions should be brought to the next meeting . Junior member status (in reference to email conversation from June 24): Jeff has asked us to clarify what’s allowed with junior members and multiple members on registrations . Some families register sheep under multiple children’s names so they can each show the same sheep, some families put just one kid on each paper. Examples were shared from Vida’s grandkids (each child has their own membership and their own sheep) and Holliday’s family (each child has their own membership but both names go on registrations), some families have one “family/farm” membership with multiple names but existing as one owner in the system. o Most fairs have specific requirement, especially junior shows. We don’t want to

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2022

make showing more difficult, especially for youth and new members. o Partnerships (meaning members registering sheep with multiple names from individual memberships as the owner) are held in the system at AR under a different holding account since they don’t fit in the system with two member numbers. §Instead of two separate juniors on a registration, should they be considered family/farm membership? Tiffany suggests asking junior members (or their parents) what their shows require. o Lydia read her blurb in the newsletter about membership clarification for everyone to review. Jenny suggests adding a sentence that individuals are responsible to checking on their show’s specific requirements. • Ann: Jack Price spoke with Ann offering to be appointed as “Legal Counsel” to ABLA and offer free legal advice . Colin remarked ABLA hasn’t regularly needed legal counsel that he’s aware of and that it may be overkill to have someone designated in that role for every meeting. Ann will tell him the board will pass up the offer but come back to him if anything comes up requiring counsel. o Jessica brought up the idea to make board meetings public . Members could sit in (without contributing) and speak during an open forum at the end. Tiffany mentioned there should be a forum with speaker identification and options to mute, like the features on Zoom. Jessica has already looked into Google email options which came with a video meeting feature . • Tiffany thanked everyone for the flowers in memory of Greg. Adjourned at 9:47 motion made by Colin, second by Kurt, motion passed unanimously.

George Saunders, President 909/783-0196 • saundegm@gmail.com www.cormosheep.com

The June/July edition of the Banner just arrived in the mail on August 12 and I was saddened to hear of Mr . Deakin passing . As, a small, very small, association his magazines policy of providing free Association Notes was a wonderful gift . Our association thanks him and are grateful for all the work he did for the sheep industry. A positive comment on the Los Angeles County Fair hosting open livestock after many years of only agriculture exhibits. They treated every one of us sheep exhibitors as if we were something special. They followed up and submitted the sheep show results to the Banner, which were published in the June/July issue. Southern California now has 4 fairs showing

open sheep . The four fairs are San Diego County, Orange County, Ventura County and Los County fairs. Three of the four have wool shows and that combined with the Monterey County wool show gives us a great opportunity to promote Cormo sheep and wool . The cormo breed is unique among sheep. The cormo sheep is the ideal family sheep. They are smaller, but not too small, with the ewe’s weighing in at about140 lbs. They are easy keepers, with the adults thriving on 3 lbs of hay a day, without pasture. They are easy lambers averaging over 1 ½ lambs per year. The wool is fine and bright, with a fiber diameter between 18 and 20 microns. They have a quiet, laid back personality. They are the smallest of the fine wool sheep. They mature a nice carcass at 4 months . If you have not sent in your membership dues please do so . Please register all the sheep you are keeping for brood stock and are selling to other breeders .

George Saunders, President Hell-o to all Members, End of Summer but certainly not finished for the shepherd . Several members have participated in local fairs with their products and raw fleeces to show the wonderful Coopworth sheep . Several members have held open house type tours to enlighten interested future and present sheep people to the assets of owning Coopworth sheep. Dyeing with Natural dyes is always a source of educating the public on how easily the Coopworth sheep fleece takes on natural dyes with ease. It is also a good time to check on ones flock to see that their health is sustained . Hooves trimmed, deworming if needed, and weights are par for a shepherds world . Our members are now preparing for the New York Sheep and wool festival . We will be represented with “Everything Coopworth” booth, a cooperative member products from Coopworth . We will have sheep in the breed display as well. Do stop and visit with us. Respectfully submitted Susan J . Garver President ACR Hell-o From ACR, I am delighted to welcome fall and the start of fiber festivals and cool temperatures. It is also time to think breeding those Coopworth sheep and deciding who stays and goes, what do I need to replace, and general farm duties to ready for the season. ACR is going to Rhineback with the “Everything Coopworth” booth this year so stop and see us and stay awhile to talk sheep. Nick Pouder of MayApple Farm is bringing his Coopworth sheep to the Breed display and you won’t want to miss them. Respectfully submitted Susan J . Garver President ACR

American Romney Breeders Association Notes 615 Lewie Road Gilbert, SC 29054 Email: secretary@americanromney.org Website: www.americanromney.org Georgina Anderson, Secretary

Hello, My name is Hunter Hayes, I had the best trip ever at All American and at NEYSS. I had so much fun with all of the Romney juniors and met so many new people. We stayed in a camper for the whole time which was just another adventure on its own. Some of my favorite things that we did with the Romney Members was the Ice Cream Social, the big sliding board, and the AG Olympics. Did i mention that we also went on a whale watch, to the beach, kayaking and then, a lobster feast? So many good experiences that I have trouble putting it all on paper., I loved playing all the games with the Junior Romney kids, as well as all the other friends that I made with different breeds. It was so much fun to get to know everyone! I also loved showing my romney who is named Ganach like the Chocolate! She did great! I loved having a bunch of my close friends out there in the ring and had fun helping my sister show and helping other Romney kids too! Those 2 weeks were two of the best weeks ever. Can’t wait for next year.

Since 2001, Lisa Rodenfels of Somerhill Farms in Coshcocton, Ohio has been involved in the leadership of the BLU. She has served as a board member, president and, most recently, as an extremely reliable secretary/ treasurer. She is one of the founding members of the BLU, having purchased her first ram in 1991 ands participated in the first import of live sheep from Canada in the early 1990’s. At the end of 2021, Lisa stepped aside from her role at Secretary / Treasurer to enjoy a well-deserved and long overdue respite from her leadership duties for the BLU. The entire organization owes her a great debt of gratitude for the many years of even-handed, unflappable wisdom, well-timed prodding, thoughtful perspective and countless hours of behind-the-scenes work she provided. I step into her place knowing that what she did for the BLU cannot truly be replicated or repaid, by me or any one person. Lisa has been gracious and generous with her advice when I have contacted her with questions, for which I am extremely grateful. You may see her on the Midwestern Angora bunny show circuit; if you do, be sure to thank her for her many years of service to the BLU. In September, 2022, the BLU will be sponsoring their National Show at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival, held in Jefferson, WI , September 9-11. The open show is in Friday, Sept 9 and the junior show is on Sept 10. There is a BFL fleece show as well, which will be judged on Saturday, Sept 10. The show committee is planning a picnic for BLU members, and BLU will be sponsoring some of the awards and premium enhancements for the exhibitors. Lots more information and entry forms can be found at wisconsinsheepandwoolfestival.com. In November of 2021, twelve very excited BFL breeders got word that the shipping tank containing approximately 300 straws of two top-notch UK BFL rams had landed in the US, These twelve investors undertook considerable risk and expense, partnering with Deb Gourley of Heritage Sheep Reproduction (HSR) in Waukon, IA, to bring in some of the first UK BFL genetics to be made widely available in the US since the new, stringent USDA / EU collection protocol went into effect several years ago. This rigorous protocol replaced a moratorium on semen imports that had been in place since the Foot and Mouth disease outbreak in the UK. The first large crop of lambs from the two rams that made it through the protocol (Derwenlas L1 and Towdypotts L10, pictured below) should be arriving in the spring of 2023. See the BLU website (bflsheep.com) for more information on the US breeders who took part in this import.

At this time several of the Midwest state fairs have concluded so congratulations to all those who exhibited at any of these fairs. I want to welcome Nathan Lien from Iowa to the ACA executive board with his election at the annual directors meeting. This is also the time to be getting those brood ewes bred for spring lambs.

Results

To meet the needs of emerging demand within the sheep industry for superior young ewe genetics available in smaller lot sizes, the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association has hosted a Premium Yearling Ewe Sale the last five years. This year’s sale was in late July at Magness Livestock Auction in Huron, S.D. Consignors provided an excellent selection of high-quality, registerable and commercial ewes ranging from traditional white face wool breeds and their crosses to meat breed yearling ewes. Prices remained strong throughout the sale with considerable interest on all offerings. Lots were purchased by buyers from four states. The high-selling registerable lot brought $600 per head for a pen of five sold by Gerdes Hampshires and purchased by Keith Jibben of Big Stone City, S.D. In the commercial ewes, the high-selling lot was five head of fall-born Polypay ewes offered by Shady Lane Farms and Nicole Jessen of Redfield, S.D., and purchased by John Callies of Howard, S.D. for $615 per head. The volume buyer of the sale was Bo Thorson from Towner, N.D., purchasing 80

ewes. Fifty-one sheep producers registered to bid on 17 lots of yearling ewes totaling 575 head. Gross receipts totaled $239,275 and the average price per head was $416. Prior to the sale, a South Dakota State University Extension educational program and lunch were held. A total of 52 sheep producers attended the programming and 107 people were on hand for the free, lamb lunch. It was also very successful day for seven young sheep producers who were awarded the Youth Buyer Credit from SDSGA. All found sheep they liked and got them bought. The winners were John Callies, Amelia Crawford, Austin Crawford, Carly Crawford, Clay Crawford, Jayden Kott and Marlena Retzlaff Tommy Mills of Frannie, Wyo., donated a yearling ewe for this year’s rollover auction to generate funds to support our Youth Buyer Credit Program. Generous donors raised $3,450 toward future winners.

Greetings from the office of the ARSBA! Hope all is well as we conclude another summer, and the kids are back in school with activities going strong. Kristin Marshall has been working on a new brochure for the association, and we now have new brochures for you to utilize at sheep events to promote the Rambouillet breed. As was discussed previously, the 2023 National Show and Sale will be in Huron, South Dakota. Burton and Laura Anderson have been working locally with the fairgrounds, hotel and city to get everything lined up for our 2023 event. We are looking forward to being in South Dakota in June 2023. Next month we should have a good indication of how the Montana, Wyoming and Newell Ram Sales went, and hopefully we will have some sale results. In addition, we have the Northstar Sale in Minnesota and the Utah Ram Sale as well as the National Ram Sale in Utah coming up in October, so there are plenty of opportunities to get high quality, fine wool sheep purchased. If you will be selling ewe lambs in another sale in the coming weeks, you have to get those nomination forms as well as fees to me prior to the sale. Fair season is finished up for most of the country, and from what I have heard, we have had some extremely nice Rambouillet shows around the country with high quality and great numbers of sheep entered. The registration and transfer numbers are looking good for the year as well as the membership numbers. You as members are doing a tremendous job in working hard to promote the breed from coast to coast in all facets of the industry.

I want to remind you that Louisville entries will be coming due fairly soon, and you must send an additional $15/head entry fee to the ARSBA at the Hawley address prior to October 1st . This deadline is to the ARSBA, no matter the official entry deadline that NAILE has. Entry fees not received by October 1st will be double, for a total of $30 per head .

membership about any precedent for transfers. After some discussion, Amy moved that the board of directors discuss and develop a policy. Megan Inbody seconded, and the motion passed . Additional discussion then ensued about transfers . Some have come back to the seller, who must then get papers to the buyer. Others have gone directly to the buyer from the registry office. Ken Scott pointed out that transfers are the responsibility of the seller. No action was taken . The idea of creating a starter flock program was kicked around . Tom Conner moved to table the topic, with Ken seconding . A written paper newsletter was suggested to help inform membership of several changes as the organization moves forward. Amy stated that new members should receive a letter with their registration papers. Some members evidently did not, so there seemed to be an inconsistent

sharing of information . Proposed newsletter would be sent as a regular mailing . Ken moved to draft the newsletter, and Tom seconded. Amy agreed to write a draft and share with directors . The increase in fees, which was discussed and approved last year, is slated to go into effect September 1, 2022 . Ken shared the history of the National Merino Show, informing the group that the event was to be held at a stock show, not a state fair . The event was slated for the KILE every fourth year, alternating with another venue. (National Merino Show is held every other year.) He moved to explore another venue for the national show, and the motion passed . Ken also suggested the language in the constitution needs to be updated to reflect current times . No action was taken . Amy Schroeder, Secretary/Treasurer

Hello from dry Massachusetts! Like many other areas of the US, we badly need rain. We are nothing like last year when it rained twice, once for 30 days and once for 45. The pastures are getting a bit crunchy on the ledge areas but the low spots are still green. But we count our blessings each time I watch the weather reports of other areas and see the massive floods and wild fire devastation. We will just put one foot in front of the other and stop complaining. Hopefully, the weather in your neck of the woods will make for a successful harvest this fall. The Shropshire registration desk has had a busy summer, but still a little short of the 2021 Covid catch-up year. Transfers are steady. The Futurity program is strong with 195 nominations of yearlong ewes and ewe lambs for the year. Point cards are being recorded and results posted biweekly. Two Shropshire starter flock stipends were awarded in April. Lyla Engel of Pennsylvania received $1000 and purchased 2 ewes. Indiana’s Zoey Pressel purchased 2 ewes with the help of her $500 award. The All American Junior Show went off without a hitch earlier in the summer in West Springfield, Massachusetts The Shropshire show was strong. Some stayed on for another week to participate in the North East Youth Sheep Show. Folks enjoyed some New England touring in between shows. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put on those 2 events. Thankfully our show seasons have returned to normal. Several state fairs are now in the books. The Open Shropshire show at the North American will be Monday November 14, tentatively judged by Bobby Spoonster. The

Congratulations to these men and many thanks for their contributions to the Shropshire breed and registry association. Information and applications for the 2023 class are on the Shropshire website and will be accepted until December 31. Thank you to those breeders who have blazed the trail of the Shropshire in the US Current topics within the Shropshire breed are creating animated discussion. Breed Type and Judging Standards are popular subjects. We need to educate judges and new breeders. Also common of late are questions and opinions about genetic testing. We know that the ability to determine Scrapie resistance and find the spider gene carriers helped to almost eliminate those problems within the US sheep population . The technology is so readily available now that it would seem ridiculous not to use it to help eliminate dwarfism and other conditions that are becoming more apparent in the Shropshire breed . So please participate in these talks and learn what we can do to keep Shrops moving in the right direction . I hope to see lots of Shropshire enthusiasts later this fall in Louisville and am looking forward to our chats . Becky Peterson, Secretary

The American Oxford Sheep Association recently sent a detailed questionnaire to all current Association members seeking their input regarding several issues that the Oxford breed, as well as the entire purebred sheep industry are currently facing. We wish to thank all the members who took the time to complete the questionnaire. Results are currently being tabulated and reviewed and a complete report will be shared in the spring 2023 Oxford Newsletter .

The Association did conduct their National Show and Sale and Annual Meeting in mid-June at Joliet Junior College in Illinois. We sincerely want to thank Brad Angus and the staff at the junior college for hosting us. They have a great facility for shows and sales and we would highly recommend that site if other breeds are looking for a venue for one of their events in the future . At the Association’s Annual Meeting, two new directors were elected to the board of directors; Austin Brockmann of Illinois and Laurie Majchrzak of Maryland were elected to replace out-going Board members Kermit Daniels and Beth Allison who had both served maximum terms on the Board . We thank both Kermit and Beth for their dedication and service and welcome Austin and Laurie and look forward to working with them as they help lead the Association . Oxfords had a good showing at the AllAmerican Junior Show in the northeast in lateJune and early July. We want to say a special thanks to Duncan and Lee Averill and to Mike and Kelly Wright for organizing a special gathering, dinner and exhibitor t-shirts for the Oxford exhibitors and their families . We also want to thank all the many Oxford breeders who contributed money to help support this special event . Finally, a big shout out to Logan Averill who had the Supreme Champion Ewe at the NE Youth Sheep Show the week following the AllAmerican. Logan’s Supreme Champion was a ewe lamb he purchased this spring and she is a Futurity nominated ewe lamb. Oxford’s reign Supreme once again! David Trotter, AOSA Secretary

Suffolks LLC, our own brand of certified Suffolk lamb. Our primary customers are young adults who desire an easy-to-prepare lamb product with a mild flavor. Our biggest challenge is demand has exceeded supply. We have an excellent story to tell with Suffolks . We excel in growth and muscle, and the Suffolk story needs to be promoted at all levels, from producers to packers to consumers . One of the core principles for a director is to put the best interest of the Suffolk breed ahead of any personal aspirations. If elected, and with your help, I will do my best to move the Suffolk breed in a positive direction . Candidate: C. McCheyne “Mac” Swortzel, Greenville, VA My wife Karen and I live on the family’s Virginia Century Farm originally purchased by my Great Grandfather in 1904. The farm, now an LLC and run with the assistance of our 3 children and their families, has grown to over 400 acres. I’ve raised Suffolk sheep for over 50 years, with flock size ranging from 25-125. We market rams and have utilized NSIP to build data to improve the flock. I earned a BS and MS in Agricultural Economics from Virginia Tech and spent my career in lending and finance. My agricultural service includes: involvement in FFA, ultimately serving as Virginia Secretary in 1973-74; in the local Young Farmers chapter; as President of the Virginia Sheep Producers Association board; Augusta County Farm Bureau board member; as well as being appointed by the Governor to two tours on the Virginia Sheep Industry board. . In my church, I have served as a deacon and an elder and have been church treasurer for 42+ years. I have also served as a board member, President and VP of the local Weekday Religious Education Association. I believe Suffolk sheep possess traits that are extremely important to the continued success of the sheep industry in this country. We need to keep the breed and organization strong while encouraging new producers to be involved . The Association needs to concentrate on adding value to producers of Suffolk sheep . C.

UNITED SUFFOLK SHEEP ASSOCIATION (USSA) BYLAWS Listed below are proposed changes to the USSA bylaws. Both the current and proposed language are presented . Current Language Article III . MEMBERSHIP Section 1. Membership Eligibility. Any owner and registrant of Suffolk or percentage Suffolk in the United Suffolk Sheep Association shall become a member; provided that each owner and registrant shall be represented by but one membership whether such owner and registrant are an individual, partnership, corporation, association or other entity. To be a member in good standing for purposes of voting in Association matters, a member must: (1) have paid dues for the current year, (2) have no outstanding financial obligation to the Association more than sixty (60) days past due, (3) currently own Suffolk sheep and (4) have registered sheep in the United Suffolk Sheep Association within the past 12 months . Proposed Language Article III . MEMBERSHIP Section 1. Membership Eligibility. Any owner and registrant of Suffolk or percentage Suffolk in the United Suffolk Sheep Association shall become a member; provided that each owner and registrant shall be represented by but one membership whether such owner and registrant are an individual, partnership, corporation, association or other entity. To be a member in good standing for purposes of voting in Association matters, a member must: (1) have paid dues for the current year and (2) have no outstanding financial obligation to the Association more than sixty (60) days past due. Note from the Board: For several years, the Bylaws committee and the board have had discussions on voting member eligibility. Under the current bylaws, approximately 20-40% of our paid members are not eligible to vote in a given year. We have had members express disappointment that they are ineligible to vote despite being a paid member in good standing, and request the board consider making a bylaw change. We do not currently have separate voting and non-voting member categories . One of our current requirements (must own Suffolk sheep) is nearly impossible for us to verify. The board is recommending the proposed bylaw changes as a way to encourage greater participation from a larger percentage of our membership . USSA ANNUAL MEETING The 2022 United Suffolk Sheep Association Annual Meeting will be virtual via Zoom . The board decided to move forward with a virtual annual meeting again this year as they received positive feedback from the membership after last year’s meeting, support through the Needs Assessment and feels it’s the best way to allow all members of the association to participate . We encourage all members to join us on Tuesday, November 29th at 7:30pm central via Zoom. Please note you do not need a computer to join, you can call in!! Be sure to save this connection to join – this will also be posted on the USSA website – www .suffolks . org .

Drought Creating Poor Lamb Conditions Market Report • Reprinted from Sheep Industry News Much of the Western United States has been plagued by drought conditions for almost three years. According to data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service on range and pasture conditions, more than 30 percent of the Western region has been rated as poor and very poor conditions in recent weeks. Compared to a year ago, conditions have improved from the 60 percent rating of pastures at poor and very poor. For the Great Plains region, pasture conditions have steadily improved from 60 percent rated poor and very poor to recent weeks rated just less than 30 percent. In the Southern Plains, range and pasture conditions rated as poor and very poor remain elevated at around 50 percent. Last year, conditions were below 20 percent. Persistent drought and marginal pasture conditions are proving to be a challenge for producers. SHEEP AND LAMB MARKET SITUATION Since the start of the year, Colorado lambs on feed have been tracking well above the prior year. Each month this year has seen lambs on feed at levels that have not occurred in nearly four years. On July 1, the number of lambs on feed in Colorado was 103,032 head – a 74-percent or about 44,000-head increase from a year ago – and well above the five-year average of about 77,000 head. Th last time lambs on feed were higher for the month of July was 2018, which was 107,311 head. Th higher lambs on feed is likely due to drought related issues and poor pasture conditions pushing more lambs on feed. Additionally, producers are likely seeking to put a little more weight on the lambs to maximize profits from the elevated lamb prices. This can be seen in recent weekly slaughter and dressed weights data.

Weekly sheep and lamb slaughter started the year below typical levels for the first quarter. In early April, weekly slaughter levels followed the typical seasonal pattern with increased slaughter rates to fill demand for the Easter holiday. This was evident by the peak weekly slaughter level so far this year of 41,921 head the first week of April. During the month of April, weekly slaughter averaged about 40,000 head with total slaughter for the month at 197,800 head. As expected, weekly slaughter in May and June fell from the April highs with weekly averages at about 32,000 head. During the peak slaughter levels in April, lamb and yearling dressed weights steadily declined from about 70 pounds down to about 60 pounds during the course of four to six weeks. The decline in dressed weights follows the typical seasonal pattern that occurs during the Easter holiday as producers market more lambs to meet rising demand. Typically, dressed weights trend lower through the third quarter before rising in the fourth quarter. Since early May, weekly lamb and yearling dressed weights have been averaging about 70 pounds, a counter seasonal move and higher than the 63-pound average during the same period last year. In June, higher weekly dressed weights have partially off et the lower weekly slaughter levels to keep lamb production at or slightly higher than year ago levels. The three-market (Colo., S.D. and Texas) feeder lamb prices have been on a seasonal decline with prices in June averaging at or more than $200 per cwt. The softening of feeder lamb prices is likely a result of elevated lambs on feed in Colorado and high feed costs. Slaughter lamb prices – national negotiated live – have been trending lower for most of the year and fell below 2021 levels the last week of May.

In June, slaughter lamb prices averaged about $200 per cwt ., which is still well above typical levels that are usually around $140 to $160 per cwt . The support for slaughter lamb prices comes from a lamb cutout value, which has ranged from $553 to $570 per cwt . in June, well above the $340 per cwt. five-year average price . Support for the lamb cutout comes from elevated prices in June for the shoulder, leg, loin and rack, which remain elevated with levels near the prior year and well above the five-year average . SHEEP AND LAMB OUTLOOK The Livestock Marketing Information Center is forecasting 2022 sheep and lamb slaughter to decline nearly 6 percent – or 132,000 head – to 2 .131 million head . The lower slaughter rate during the second half of the year is expected to be partially offset by higher dressed weights leading to about a 4-percent decrease in lamb production for the year. Elevated lamb prices are likely to encourage further imports from Australia and New Zealand with levels expected to be near or slightly below 2021, which should off et some of the low lamb production . Feeder lamb prices during the first half of 2022 averaged just more than $290 per cwt. – 8 percent or $22 higher than the first half of 2021. For the second half of 2022, feeder lamb prices are forecast to be between $238 and $250 per cwt ., putting the annual price range at $263 to $273 per cwt., which is slightly lower than the prior year. Slaughter lamb prices finished the first half of the year up 15 percent or $29 per cwt. from a

year earlier to $218 per cwt. For the second half of the year, slaughter lamb prices are expected to ease lower ranging from $193 to $204 per cwt . with an annual price forecast of $203 to $213 per cwt . for a decline of about 4 percent from 2021 . WOOL With the conclusion of June came the closing of the 2021-22 wool selling season. Annually, the Australian Eastern Market Indicator finished the season with an average price of about 1,385 Australian cents per kg clean – up 15 percent or about 184 cents from the 2020-2021 season average price of 1,201 Australian cents per kg clean . For the month of June, the Australian EMI ranged from 1,438 to 1,474 Australian cents per kg clean with an average of 1,425 Australian cents per kg clean . June’s EMI was a 2-percent increase from the average price in May. Compared to a year ago, the Australian EMI has improved 10 percent . During the month of June, the Australian EMI weekly prices trended higher for three consecutive weeks before finishing the last week of the season on a weaker tone . Season average prices for the fiber wools – between 17 and 21 micron – saw improvement over 2020-21 prices. In June, fiber wool prices were generally better when compared to May with increases ranging from 1 to 6 percent higher. Compared to a year ago, June’s prices were even to slightly weaker with the 18 to 20 micron wools posting 3- to 6-percent declines . June’s prices for the 22 to 32 micron wools were mixed compared to those in May, but compared to a year ago prices were generally weaker . As the new wool season begins, uncertainty remains surrounding the global economic outlook and Australian exchange rates, which will continue to be concerns for global wool demand. Inflationary pressures are expected to remain an issue not only in the United States, but also globally. This is starting to affect some consumers, raising concerns for wool demand in the near term .

At the annual Wyoming Wool Growers Association conference this summer, University of Wyoming Extension Sheep Specialist Whit Stewart announced the launch of the Wyoming Wool Initiative. The initiative leads innovative research and programming that promotes and expands Wyoming’s sheep industry. Its mission is to support producers – both directly and indirectly – in adding value to their wool, says Lindsay Conley-Stewart, manager and project coordinator. The Wyoming Wool Initiative is a non-profit effort supported by UW’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, donations, Mountain Meadow Wool and other partners . Current programs include the Wyoming Blanket Project and inaugural Lamb-a-Year program . Both endeavors connect UW students with sheep industry professionals. It all started with a question, says Stewart, head of UW’s Sheep Program: “If we’re producing this high-quality product in a land-scape that’s really well suited for it, shouldn’t we be capturing some of that value at the state level?” In January 2021, his team launched the Wyoming Blanket Project working with Mountain Meadow Wool Mill in Buffalo, Wyo., to produce blankets using wool from the university farm in Laramie, Wyo. The project – now part of the Wyoming Wool Initiative – will feature new blanket designs each year. A limited number of the 2022 blankets were available for presale at Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days in July. Currently, funds from blanket sales and other donations are used to support student internships and graduate assistantships; travel for wool judging competitions; and research and development for wool processing and manufacturing . As the initiative grows, the team will develop programming for producers throughout the state . The Lamb-a-Year program connects producers with UW students interested in the sheep industry. Participating producers will donate a minimum of five lambs, which will be transported and finished at Double J Lamb Feeders in Ault, Colo., in the fall . As part of the inaugural Lamb-a-Year course, UW students will be involved in the finishing and harvesting phase of lamb production. Students enrolled in the class will visit Double J Lamb Feeders multiple times to measure animal performance and learn about the lamb feeding industry. They also will collect carcass data at a lamb processing plant in Denver . This data will be shared with the producers who donated lambs to the project. While “steer-a-year” programs are common across the United States, UW’s Lamb-a-Year project is one of the first of its kind, Conley-Stewart says. Going forward, she hopes the Wyoming Wool Initiative will “open doors for younger generations to get into the industry, support entrepreneurs making products with wool and help producers get more value from the wool that they grow.” Ultimately, the goal is to build on the unique heritage of Wyoming’s wool industry to support its future, she says. To learn more about the Wyoming Wool Initiative, visit UWYO.edu/ wyowool or email woolinitiative@uwyo.edu.

Lamb Retail Sales and Market Reports Released The American Lamb Board announced the release of two reports this week which provide the industry with valuable information for shortand long-term assessment of the American lamb marketplace. The Second Quarter Retail Sales report (April 10 to July 2) analyzes multi-unit data from food/grocery, drug, mass merchandisers (such as Walmart), club stores (like Sam’s), dollar stores and military commissaries. Key findings are: • Despite a higher price point, U.S. consumer demand for lamb remains strong. As of Q2 2021, the average price/lb. of lamb was $8.41, but grew to $9.47/lb. for Q2 2022. • While lamb sales largely remained flat between the latest 52 weeks compared to the previous 52 weeks, both dollars and pounds have seen impressive growth between Q2 2021 and Q2 2022, with dollar sales increased 15.7 percent and volume increased 9.3 percent. • Easter Week 2022 saw volume sales reach 2.94 million lbs., just shy of Easter 2021 (3.04 million). Given the higher price point, dollar sales in Easter Week 2022 reached $26.8 million, compared to $24.5 million in 2021. • Leg sales exploded between Q2 2021 and Q2 2022. Almost the entirety of the volume growth was driven by lamb leg. Leg saw 43.2 percent more pounds sold and a 53.1 percent increase in dollars. Note that this growth is a reflection of Easter sales, which fell in Q2 of 2022 compared to Q2 2021 - Easter sales fell in Q1 in 2021. Contact Rae Villa for a copy of the full report. A few weeks is all it takes to see a major shift in the American lamb market. The August Lamb Market Summary – prepared for ALB by the American Sheep Industry Association – found what many industry members suspected. Inflation this year has resulted in a decline in real incomes, impacting consumers’ willingness to pay for lamb. While the Consumer Price Index in July was steady with the prior month, food prices kept increasing, with inflation for food at home and at restaurants 13 percent and 7.6 percent higher, respectively. As a result, the demand for live lambs has declined, resulting in a slowdown in feedlot marketings, heavier lamb weights, a rise in over-finished lambs and high feed costs which has reinforced declining live lamb prices. “What makes this situation so disheartening is that the primary culprit – inflation – is out of our industry’s control,” said ALB Chairman John Camino. “What the Lamb Board can do shortterm is give consumers reasons to choose American lamb. An example is the in-store sampling underway in partnership with Superior Farms.” “Finding more ways to increase productivity and efficiency is a top priority for the checkoff, so we can be more competitive in the marketplace,” Camino added. “The Lamb Summit showcased much of that work and is just one way we are sharing that information with the industry.”

USDA Grants Strengthen Meat Supply Chain

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service announced this week an additional $21.9 million of funding is being awarded to 111 grant projects through the Meat and Poultry Inspection Readiness Grant Program, bringing total funding to $54.6 million. This year’s awards will fund projects in 37 states. The funding will help strengthen and develop new market opportunities for meat and poultry processors throughout the United States. To further these efforts, AMS is also encouraging MPIRG awardees and eligible participants in USDA’s Meat and Poultry Supply Chain initiatives to request assistance through the Meat and Poultry Processing Capacity Technical Assistance Program. Launched in March 2022, MPPTA connects participants to a nationwide network of resources and expertise. “The Meat and Poultry Inspection Readiness Grants will help meat and poultry processors make necessary facility improvements, expand their businesses, and strengthen the nation’s food supply chain,” said Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. “These grants are one part of USDA’s Meat and Poultry Supply Chain initiatives and will contribute to our efforts to transform our food system.” “USDA continues to build capacity and increase economic opportunity for small and mid-sized meat and poultry producers across the country,” added Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Jenny Lester Moffitt. Facility improvements and expansions funded through MPIRG will help processors obtain a Federal Grant of Inspection or qualify for a state’s Cooperative Interstate Shipment program. Achieving a Federal Grant of Inspection or operating under a Cooperative Interstate Shipment program allows meat and poultry processors to ship products across state lines, develop new markets, increase capacity, and better meet consumer and producer demand along the supply chain. MPIRG recipients and other eligible participants – especially small and under served stakeholders – in USDA’s Meat and Poultry Supply Chain initiatives are encouraged to take advantage of the broad technical assistance offered through MPPTA. AMS has cooperative agreements with six organizations to form the MPPTA network, which has already provided valuable assistance to more than 300 businesses and organizations across the United States and its territories since its launch earlier this year. For more information about MPPTA and the organizations involved, and to initiate a request for assistance, visit AMS’ MPPTA webpage.

Will FMD Knock, Or Walk Right Into Your Flock? What if there was an outbreak of foot and mouth disease on your country’s doorstep? This is the case for sheep producers in Australia, who are nervously watching the outbreak in Indonesia . Despite separation by a large body of water, there is extensive airline travel between the countries, which increases the chance of introduction. South Africa’s wool industry is experiencing the dire consequences of not being able to export to China due to an FMD outbreak earlier this year. If FMD came knocking on the United States’ door, would it be able to walk right into your flock, or are you doing things to protect your sheep? An outbreak of FMD in the United States would have a devastating impact on the sheep and wool industry. Fortunately, the country has not had a case of FMD since 1929, and it is not within 100 miles of our border . The risk of introduction still exists due to global travel and trade . While FMD does not affect public health or food safety, it is a highly contagious animal disease . Sheep producers would need to put enhanced biosecurity measures in place to protect their flock. ASI values preparedness, which is why it developed the Secure Sheep and Wool Plan (SecureSheepWool .org) with enhanced biosecurity tools and more. PREVENTING FMD SPREAD One way to control the spread of FMD involves stopping animal and animal product movement . Animal products include raw wool, wool products, semen, embryos and manure. At the beginning of an FMD outbreak, the U .S . Department of Agriculture recommends a 72-hour national movement standstill for all cloven-hoofed livestock and their products . After this time, movement controls will continue in the areas around infected animals, throughout a state or even a region . Restarting movement will require a special permit. The permit will be issued by regulatory officials after a producer meets certain requirements. How prepared are you to meet those requirements so your business can continue? SSWS PLAN The SSWS Plan was developed to help producers protect their flocks from FMD and voluntarily prepare before an FMD outbreak, rather than during the chaos of an outbreak . The plan provides guidance for producers who have sheep with no evidence of FMD infection to meet movement permit requirements. The guidance in the SSWS Plan will help producers with sheep that have no evidence of infection, to: • Limit exposure of their sheep to FMD through enhanced biosecurity.; • Move sheep to processing or other premises under a movement permit issued by regulatory officials; • Maintain business continuity for the sheep industry, including producers, haulers, packers and wool processors during an FMD outbreak .

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2022

Producers wanting to tip the scales in favor of surviving an FMD outbreak can prepare now by: • Having a National Premises Identification Number issued by the office of the State Animal Health Official. It’s free; • Working with your flock veterinarian to write an operation-specific, enhanced biosecurity plan; • Keeping movement records of animals, people and equipment; • Developing contingency plans for your operation in the case of limited animal movement . Preparedness resources are available at SecureSheepWool .org, including: • Biosecurity checklists to see how “ready” you are; • Information manuals to learn how to enhance biosecurity against FMD; • Enhanced biosecurity plan templates to customize to your operation; • Movement logs; • Disease monitoring tools – how to recognize FMD.

Published from Sheep Industry News monitors the situation in the southern hemisphere, now is a good time to learn how to protect your flock and business in the event of an FMD outbreak . Explore the SSWS Plan resources at SecureSheepWool .org .

NEXT STEPS ASI supports several efforts to protect America’s sheep producers from foreign animal and plant diseases and pests, which is why it developed the SSWS Plan . As the association

Innovation Comes From Collaboration Sheep Genetics USA • Reprinted from Sheep Industry News

The value of a good team is hard to measure, and the value of a great team is immeasurable. Sheep Genetics USA has been blessed with multiple great teams. Th board members with whom I have the great honor to associate are premier industry leaders, the action leads are equally amazing, and our industry stake-holders provide critical direction and vision for the future. A jet airliner is off course for most of the time it is in the air. Constant course corrections are required to arrive at the correct destination every time. Such is the value of team leadership, which when based on clear future vision provides necessary course corrections to arrive at the desired mileposts. Sheep Genetics USA is collaborating with multiple industry stakeholder teams, including the ASI Genetic Stakeholders Committee and the National Sheep Improvement Program and we will once again jointly offer a genetics-based session at the 2023 ASI Annual Convention. We are excited about team efforts in research areas with the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station and several other research facilities. Th se science based teams will provide topics, scopes of work and structural integrity to the various research projects undertaken. Projects are under discussion with lamb feeders, packers and producers for productionfocused, ranch-based projects assuring real world conditions and outcomes. We are blessed with a large number of young sheep-oriented specialists in our industry. Th se include extension specialists, university professors, researchers and producers. Th se folks make up teams of specialized, empowered and enthusiastic partners that will create a quantum leap forward in the industry through the

transmission and adoption of genetic projects to make American lamb not just the finest meat available, but also make it internationally competitive. We have committed to assisting with the GEMS project, which Dr. Ron Lewis has created. We believe it has the power to make a paradigm shift in the industry, and you can read more about it in this issue. This climate-based project has a variety of real-world components that will assist all producers in making better trait selection for multiple production factors. Get and stay engaged – this is going to be great. What an exciting time to be in the sheep business. What a marvelous opportunity to be part of one of these incredible teams. Earlier the term stakeholders was used. This generic term is used to encompass anyone – and everyone – interested in producing the ultimate lamb, which will be a continuous journey into the future. There is room on this journey for everyone, more importantly we need everyone. While research, education, technological advances and lamb economics continually evolve, no change occurs, no advancement is made, and no success is gained until adoption and implementation are in place. Only then will we take a step closer to achieving the ideal lamb that is consistently an absolute masterpiece on the plate and a powerful competitor on the world economic front. This will only happen as we join forces and collaborate as teams, which is why Sheep Genetics USA was created. Join one of our teams today.

Legislative Update from Washington, D.C. The American Sheep Industry Association’s lobbying firm – Cornerstone Government Affairs – offered an update this week on legislative issues in our nation’s capital. Senate Committee Favorably Reports McKalip Nomination On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance favorably reported the nomination of Doug McKalip to serve as Chief Agricultural Negotiator within the U.S. Trade Representative on a unanimous vote. The nominee, Doug McKalip, has previously served in a variety of positions at the United States Department of Agriculture, most recently as a senior advisor to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. McKalip underwent a contentious hearing in July of this year, though the focus was mostly on the Biden Administration’s trade policy efforts, or lack thereof. This nomination will now go to the full Senate for confirmation, but a date has not yet been announced. Senate EPW Hearing On Wednesday, the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works held a hearing to discuss S. 1475, the Livestock Regulatory Protection Act of 2021. S. 1475 would prohibit the issuance of permits for carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, water vapor or methane emission from biological processes associated with livestock production. In his opening statement, Chairman Tom Carper (Del.) discussed how S. 1475 would take away the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate animal emissions and grant permanent exemption from annual Congressional review. Carper highlighted that the EPA already refrains from issuing such permits because of language sponsored by Sen. John Thune (S.D.) that has been carried in appropriations legislation for several years. The chairman also reminded the committee that using the appropriations bill gives Congress important flexibility. Sen. Thune’s opening testimony discussed how regulating food emissions would lead to higher costs for consumers already facing increased food prices. He also mentioned that beef production is only responsible for a tiny fraction of U.S. emissions. He added that farmers have already been utilizing feed additives, as well as capturing and utilizing the energy potential of their waste using biodigesters, significantly reducing their emissions. Sen. Thune reminded the committee that the issue isn’t limited to cattle producers, and that passing this legislation would give livestock producers long-term certainty that their livelihood would not be compromised by regulatory overreach. Scott VanderWal, vice president of the American Farm Bureau Federation and president of South Dakota Farm Bureau, emphasized that the low emissions from food and livestock production prove that additional emissions regulations by the EPA is not needed. VanderWal noted the tripling of farming productivity across three generations without any additional resources during that period, as.

well as the improvement of carbon sequestration processes. VanderWal also said that emissions controls would cause unjust burdens on ranchers and farmers, and that Congress must protect these groups from over regulation . John Walke, director of Clean Energy Project, Climate and Clean Energy Program at the National Resources Defense Council, argued for the rejection of S. 1475, citing the importance of the appropriations process for safeguarding the livestock industry and emphasizing the danger of emissions from livestock production . While other witnesses testified the overall emissions from the agricultural and livestock sectors are low, Walke believes the emissions impact from the agricultural sector is much higher . Walke said that he believes that the agricultural sector should not get a permanent exemption, as the currently constructed appropriations process

would do a better job in addressing regulation and compliance . Railroad Labor Dispute Causes Strike Fears Fears of a labor strike are rising between railroads and their union workers, as they have yet to reach an agreement on work conditions with harvest right around the corner . Several large railroad companies including BNSF, CSX Transportation, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern, Canadian National and Union Pacific have reached agreements with five out of the 12 labor unions, but have not yet reached an agreement with the rest . Earlier this year, the Biden Administration established a three-person emergency board that would work directly with railroads and unions to establish a solution. The emergency board has released a recommendation that

would increase wages by 24 percent from 2020 through 2024, with a 14 .1 percent increase occurring immediately. The board also suggested changes to health care premiums, benefit enhancements and work rules. The parties involved have until Sept . 15 to reach a deal before a strike begins . A strike could have detrimental effects on a wide variety of industries, as railroad transportation makes up 30 percent of all national transportation . Several agriculture leaders expect western livestock operations to be the first impacted if a strike were to take place .

Sheep Nutrition Alfalfa vs. Grass Hay

Published from Sheep Industry News

High-quality alfalfa hay is the “holy grail” of forages. With high protein levels and digestible energy, it’s great for boosting performance in your flock. But, quality comes with a price. With prices rising across the board, you might be asking, “is feeding alfalfa worth it?” Determining the right forage strategy for your flock relies on many factors, including availability, input cost, farm goals and more. To make the decision easier, I’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions regarding forages for your flock. Alfalfa Vs. Grass Hay – What’s The Difference? The main difference between grasses - such as Bermuda grass, orchard grass or fescue, and legumes, like alfalfa – is protein levels. Quality alfalfa hay can have more than 50 percent higher protein levels than grass hay. Alfalfa also contains more calcium and total digestible nutrients compared to grass hays. On the other hand, grass hays are equivalent to legumes in energy level and are a good filler feed, especially when the grass is cut early and is more tender to encourage intake. Grass hay also has the ad-vantage during breeding season because phytoestrogen in alfalfa hay can negatively impact fertility in ewes. When Should I Feed Alfalfa? One of the most common questions I hear is, “do I need to feed alfalfa year-round?” The answer is no. I love alfalfa, but there are times of the year that are more important to feed it than others. The best time to feed high-quality alfalfa is during lactation. The high protein levels in the alfalfa support quality milk production to give lambs a quicker start and help ewes bounce back faster after lambing. Gestation is another critical time to feed ewes more protein. In late summer, fall and throughout winter, pasture quality is degraded with less moisture, reduced protein levels and generally tough, low-quality grass. Feeding alfalfa during times of low pasture quality helps keep females in acceptable body condition, supporting fetal development and thriftier lambs born in the spring. Feeding forages with lower protein levels (between 12 and 14 per-cent) is recommended after lactation and before breeding. Not only is pasture quality at its peak during this time, but research on flocks utilizing artificial insemination and embryo transfer has shown improved embryo counts when feeding animals a lower protein diet prior to breeding. What Is The Cost Difference? Protein is the most expensive nutrient for your flock. In most cases, alfalfa will have a higher input cost compared to grass hay. But, determining the best feed strategy isn’t as simple as reducing your hay cost. First, start with setting your flock goals. Are you focused on improving return on investment with more animals on the ground or more pounds at weaning? If your goal is to maximize production, feeding higher protein levels is the way to go.

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2022

If your goal is to reduce input costs, feeding grass hay might be the right strategy for you. Remember, forage isn’t the only way to provide protein to your animals. Supplementing lowerquality hay with a protein tub could give you the same results as feeding a more expensive alfalfa hay. Sometimes, you have no choice in what to feed based on what forage is available. For example, in times of drought, you might not have an abundance of high-quality hay available. You might be feeding lower-quality alfalfa or possibly using year-old or older stored hay with the protein leached out. In those situations, you might need to provide additional supplementation to make up for what’s lacking. Bonus Recommendation: Forage Testing I’m a big believer in getting your hay tested so you know exactly what you’re feeding your flock. A forage test can tell you several helpful things, including TDNs, but the most important information is protein levels. To be considered high-quality alfalfa, protein levels should fall between 16 and 23 percent. Lower-quality alfalfa is 10 to 14 percent. Grass hay usually is around 8 to 12 percent protein. When protein levels in your forage fall below 16 percent, I recommend providing additional protein supplementation through a protein tub to meet your flock’s nutrition needs, especially during gestation and lactation. Choosing the best forage strategy for your flock isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Balance cost, farm goals and availability to do what’s right for you and your animals.

Lamb Quality Highly Influenced by On-Farm Practices

Anyone who raises lambs affects endproduct quality. On-farm practices are significant factors in how consumers will or will not find American Lamb a great meal choice. This was a major take-away from the 2022 American Lamb Summit held August 8-9 in East Lansing, MI. Sponsors of the American Lamb Summit are the American Lamb Board and Premier 1 Supplies. It was hosted by Michigan State University. Improving flocks through genetic selection was discussed in multiple Lamb Summit sessions. Tom Murphy, PhD, a research geneticist at the US Meat Animal Research Center, advised producers to start by selecting the right terminal sires. “US sheep producers need to improve reproductive efficiency and carcass characteristics to be competitive inbred meat production. We need to move beyond visual appraisal as our sole means of evaluating breeding stock,” Murphy stated.

He called out 3 strategies: marker-assisted selection, accurate identification of genetic superiority and purposeful crossbreeding. Marker-assisted selection means choosing animals that have a single gene variant that should deliver large impacts. Most growth and carcass traits are controlled by many genes (hundreds or thousands) whose variants each have small effects. However, a few gene variants with large effects on carcass traits have been identified in sheep populations throughout the world. Carriers of the Myostatin gene are “double muscled,” which is really an increase in the number of muscle fibers, while the Callipyge gene increases the size of muscle fibers. However, meat from Callipyge lambs is much tougher than normal. Accurately identifying genetic superiority requires a systematic manner to compare animals. The cattle industry does this routinely using EPDs. For sheep, it’s using the National Sheep Improvement Plan’s (NSIP) estimated breeding values (EBVs). Murphy made it clear that EBVs will always be a more accurate indicator of genetic merit than only considering an individual’s performance, and they will become more accurate with the inclusion of more flocks. “Producers selling seedstock should be in NSIP. Commercial producers don’t need to be members, but it should be standard practice to buy replacement rams (and ewes) with the aid of EBVs,” Murphy said. Crossbreeding has proven its value for generations. Murphy focused on selecting a terminal breed of sire (faster growth, heavier muscling, leaner, higher maintenance costs, fewer lambs born/reared) mated to a maternal breed of ewe(slower growth, lighter muscled, lower maintenance costs, more lambs born/ reared). “It is perhaps more important to select genetically superior individuals by using EBVs instead of choosing a breed then looking at animals only within that breed,” Murphy said. Michigan State University’s Andrea Garmyn, PhD, reinforced the importance of genetics on red meat yield, which has been a focus in Australia and New Zealand for years. She also pointed out that as animals age, connective tissue gets stronger and doesn’t break down with cooking. Rapid growth rate promotes synthesis of new collagen that breaks down easily with cooking while a slower growth rate makes connective tissue that is harder to break down during cooking. Intramuscular fat (marbling) hasn’t been a big topic with lamb. However, Garmyn pointed to research linking marbling to improved eating quality. She also identified a major challenge within the lamb industry: marbling is not assessed as part of USDA quality grading. When it comes to postmortem aging, the majority occurs within the first 7 days. Currently, most lamb is aged about 5 days. Aging carcasses longer will see tenderness continue to improve, but at a slower rate. Research has found that aging lamb 21 days improved overall liking by consumers. Aging more than 45 days doesn’t increase tenderness and can cause offflavors. Presentation slides used by Murphy and Garmyn are on LambResourceCenter.com.
