Congratulations Ian & Carmen Murray Shoestring Ranch

Alberta Beef Producers 2108 Environmental Stewardship Recipient Award our production, our cattle and pastures. I’d like to continue to improve the health of our soil and the cleanliness of our water,” said Ian.

Alberta Beef Producers (ABP) presented Ian and Carman Murray with the 2018 Environmental Stewardship Award this week at the ABP Annual General Meeting. Each year, ABP recognizes a cattle operation that demonstrates leadership in environmental stewardship – one that contributes to the land while improving productivity and profitability.

Ian’s involvement in the industry and community leadership further proves his commitment to environmental ranching practices. He served as Chair with both the Foothills Forage and Grazing Association and the Agricultural Research and Extension Council of Alberta. He was an early adaptor of the Verified Beef Production program and Environmental Farm Plan.

Ian is a fifth-generation Alberta rancher whose family originally homesteaded in 1883, west of Calgary in the Jumping Pound District. In 2007, Ian and Carman moved from north of Cochrane to Shoestring Ranch near Acme, AB. The cow calf and crop operation runs 180 pairs and retains calves for a natural beef program.

“I don’t think anybody has ever won this award based on the culmination of your life’s events… It is more of a recognition for being on the path. I don’t think anybody who is on this path ever gets to the end of it. There’s always something more to accomplish, to make something a little bit better,” said Ian.

“I feel my connection to the land, water, air is really strong and getting stronger as I progress throughout my career,” said Ian. They began shifting the environmental focus of the ranch through pasture management, but once they switched to focus more on the soil, everything came together. The ranch practices minimum tillage when seeding crops to keep residue anchored in the soil and protect the structure to prevent erosion.

Proud suppliers of Black Angus Bulls to

Shoestring Ranch Ian & Carmen Murray have purchased 18 bulls from Matejka Farms in the past 10 years

“We try to take an environmental focus on all the decisions that we do here at the ranch, and try to include it in all of our management steps,” said Ian. “We have tried to work with nature as much as we can and we’ve changed the management of our ranch dramatically to do so.” Dugouts are fenced off with several solar power watering systems to provide better quality water for the cattle and support healthy riparian areas. Shelterbelts are maintained to protect from wind erosion and provide wildlife habitat. “I’d like to continue to improve upon the utilization of our land,

CUTTING EDGE BULL SALE EPD’s - An Effective Tool To Assist Your Bull Buying Decisions To use EPDs effectively you must understand how they work. Imagine you are interested in purchasing a couple of bulls for your herd. You are looking at the EPDs in a sale catalogue. Bull A has a weaning weight EPD of +10 and Bull B has a WW of +60. What does that mean? How can you use the EPDs to choose between the two bulls?

example, bulls with high growth EPDs may sire calves with a higher birth weight as well. And there may be other impacts on your operation to consider.

If these animals were randomly mated with 10 similar cows, we would expect the group average weaning weight of Bull A’s offspring to be 50 lbs lighter than that of Bull B’s (60-10=50).

If all calves were sold as feeders, the milk EPD would generally not rate much attention. Yearling weight will be important if you want to ensure finished steers in the appropriate weight range.

It would be easier if we could assume that the highest EPDs are the best. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple. Like most decisions, using EPDs for sire selection involves tradeoffs. For

Examples: When breeding heifers it is desirable to produce calves with lower birth weights, so a breeder may want to pay special attention to birth weight EPDs of prospective bulls.

BW = Birth Weight – pounds of birth weight (the lower the number, the lighter the calves)

WW = Weaning Weight – pounds of weaning weight (the higher the number, the more pounds will be weaned) YW = Yearling Weight – pounds of yearling weight (the higher the number the more pounds as a yearling) Milk = Maternal Milk – pounds of calf weaned by a bull’s daughters. A management number with reflection of the environment and feed resources. TM = TM Maternal – The total maternal EPD is a measure of both growth and milking ability and is an indication of the size of calf a bull’s daughter will wean. The maternal milk EPD is combined with half of the weaning growth EPD to produce the total maternal EPD. This is a prediction of the total genetic influence that a sire will have on his daughter’s progeny.

This does not making buying a bull any easier – it should only give you more confidence in realizing what the animal can contribute. EPD’s are a pedigree estimate that can help you navigate management and environmental conditions. Keep in mind that it is still a 50/50 contribution between the bull and the female.
