A Standard Comes Before Public Consensus

4

/ April 2011

It is extremely easy to be lulled into complacency when it comes to animal welfare issues. After all, for most of us, there does not appear to be an immediate or detectable threat challenging the way we are currently doing things. The market has been exceptionally good. Bull sales are setting record tops, and the U.S. consumer is purchasing our product at record meat case prices. So should we really be concerned about something that does not appear to be an imminent threat? Being proactive tends to lend itself to those things we understand and have knowledge of or things that have urgent priority such as taking pictures for the sale catalog that has a print deadline next month or synchronizing females for breeding season this spring. However, I am hopeful that we, as an organization, might consider a proactive stand by defining a standard when it comes to the way we conduct our dayto-day business of animal care. If we don’t, there will certainly be those who will define it for us. In our minds caring for the well-being of livestock is a given; it’s a part of our DNA, and our livelihoods are dependent on it. Since the first domestication of livestock and the biblical pronouncement of God-given dominion over food animals to man, unnecessary cruelty to animals has, for the most part, been strictly

forbidden. However, standards for cruelty are very different depending on where society is as it relates to the sensitivity of cruelty. In other words, cruelty is and always has been measured on an ethics gradient. Animal care and welfare laws were some of the earliest laws of human culture. As part of the law, ancient Hebrews were required to relieve an animal of its burden even if they did not like its owner, did not know its owner or even found that it was ownerless. The ancient law required a farmer to send away a mother hen before taking her eggs. Ancient farmers and ranchers were not even permitted to purchase an animal unless they had made provisions to feed that animal first. In fact, they were expected to feed their animals even before they fed themselves, but, of course, that was before the microwave oven or the ballpark frank at the local gas station. Most of this sounds like common sense to us. There is a moral fiber that we all are a part of that tells us the difference between right and wrong when it comes to animal welfare. The emancipation of slavery after the civil war escalated further the standard of welfare as it relates to human rights and well-being. Today, there are those who wish to bestow those same human rights upon

animals. The humanization of animals has become a very real and dangerous philosophical battle between those of us with agrarian values and those from urban backgrounds with no understanding of the food chain. The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS), the richly resourced “animal advocate” group, is currently lobbying states for defined “rights” and new rules for animal care. These go beyond puppy mills and dog fighting. In Missouri alone, HSUS has two full-time lobbyists in Jefferson City. Bernie Rollins, leading scientist on animal ethics from Colorado State University, says that when it comes to ethics, consensus rules as it relates to rightness or wrongness, and when a public consensus of ethic principles is formed, then new laws are written. The most recent and hotly debated universal healthcare law is a great example of what can happen when there is enough political capital and public consensus regarding an issue for which many have strong convictions. Momentum is gathered through massive financial resources that can influence public perception, and finally new laws are written and passed even without the full understanding of the consequences. Animal management practices have come under the same level of public continued on page 6... www.hereford.org

scrutiny that the healthcare system fell under, and we have seen firsthand where a radical change in law can be instituted overnight. In Ohio, HSUS has been very aggressive in petitioning lawmakers and the public on their position regarding the treatment of animals. The Ohio Department of Agriculture has organized the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board, made up of producers, animal scientists and trade organization representatives, whose sole purpose is to get ahead of HSUS in defining what is right when it comes to food animal handling and care.

6

/ April 2011

Most of this board’s proposed recommendations are very practical, while some may be outside the norm or have regional bias. Nonetheless, members are making a noble attempt to define practices that are manageable and deemed publicly acceptable so that more extreme measures proposed by HSUS’s lobbyists might be defeated. In the next Hereford World, we will take a look at what the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board is proposing, and we will ask a few Hereford breeders their thoughts on the proposed written management

practices. Defining what we do on a day-to-day basis may be the best tool for educating the public and defending our industry. HW

Loewens Donate ‘Foundation’ to Support Hereford Research The 2010 American Hereford Association (AHA) Strategic Plan put forth a very dynamic set of core strategies, objectives and tactics. The breed improvement committee is focusing on core strategy 1: Improve the overall quality, consistency, predictability and profitability of Hereford genetics. The AHA has started to put together tools that will help facilitate this strategy which include whole herd reporting, National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) and the development of additional economically relevant traits (ERTs).

His genetic make up is incredible and his ratios of BW 84, WW 106, YW 101, REA 106 and MARB 115 have given him a tabulation that puts his Index Values in the top 5% across the board including the top 1% for both BMI$ and CHB$. His dam has had two calves reported at BW 86, WW 108, YW 104 and three for REA 107 and MARB 89. His dam is a donor in the Loewen program because she has a perfect udder and her dam, HVH Oksana 4L 33N, is truly one of the great cows in the breed. • John and Mona Loewen have donated this bull to the HRF and we will be selling breeding shares in the bull with all proceeds going to HRF. • ABS has leased the bull and the royalties from semen sales go directly to HRF. • Anyone who purchases a breeding share will have the chance to also win three embryos donated by John and Mona on the dam of Foundation. • For more details on how to get a piece of Foundation and support HRF, contact Jack Ward, jward@hereford.org or 816-842-3757.

In addition to these, the extension or education side of this strategy is very important. As with most things, all of these tools for genetic improvement will cost money and require resources. So, prior to this Strategic Plan, the AHA Board recognized that in order to make progress, there needs to be a funding entity outside the AHA budget to help with these programs; as a result, the Hereford Research Foundation (HRF) was organized. HRF is a division of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America, a 501(c)3 notfor-profit organization. In less than a year, HRF has raised more than $20,000 to help with different AHA breed improvement projects. Obviously, this is not enough, so HRF must continue to grow. Last fall, Lorna Marshall, ABS beef sire acquisition manager, approached the breed improvement committee with an opportunity to raise funds for the HRF. If we could identify a young sire that fit the genetic parameters of ABS and a breeder that was willing to support the HRF, we could work a joint venture that could help with some long-term HRF financial support. A young sire has been identified, and the breeders have graciously agreed to donate the bull to the HRF. The bull, Loewen Foundation 34X (43074983), owned by John and Mona

Loewen, Waukomis, Okla., has a very modern pedigree with an incredible set of numbers and he has jumped through all of the production hoops. Study this guy, and let me tell you that he has all of the bells and whistles. He is red to the ground, fully pigmented and google-eyed, moderate framed and he is backed by a powerful dam that has a perfect udder. In addition, the maternal grandmother is one of the great cows in the breed and full sisters and brothers to the dam are making a huge impact in the Hereford breed. “Foundation” has a very impressive full sister at Loewen Herefords that will be heard from in the future. The AHA would like to thank both John and Mona Loewen and ABS for this generous donation. The purchase price of this bull will be totally donated to the HRF and residual income will come from the semen sales at ABS. As I write this article, the details of the sale are still being worked out, but please study the pedigree and contact me at 816-842-3757 or jward@hereford.org to talk about the possibilities. This donation will be a tremendous opportunity to help build resources through the HRF for current and future research opportunities. HW

Enter Early and Speak Out There is a saying that I have heard many times growing up. It goes, “If you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, then you are late. If you are late, then don’t bother showing up!” Entering your cattle for the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is no exception to this adage. This year, the early bird entry deadline for the JNHE is May 2. The early deadline is beneficial to you as a National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) member in that it saves money. By entering early, you pay a smaller entry fee than at the final June 1 deadline. The early bird deadline also makes preparing for the show a little easier on the American Hereford Association (AHA) staff in Kansas City. Everyone at AHA works hard to support the NJHA and help us have a great JNHE every summer, so help them by sending your entries in early. If you do not make the early deadline, there will still be time to National Junior Hereford Association Chairman – Rossie Blinson, vrblinso@ncsu.edu Vice chairman – Danielle Starr, dstarr@purdue.edu Communications chair – Mallorie Phelps, aggiegerl15@sbcglobal.net Membership chair – Andrew Albin, albino1991@gmail.com Leadership chair – Jake Metch, metch24@aol.com Fundraising chair – Justin Bacon, justin.bacon@okstate.edu Directors Hunter Grayson, hunterg@blackhatranch.com Kevin Ernst, kevin_ernst13@msn.com Tamar Adcock, tamar@adcockshowcattle.com Austin Buzanowski, abooze74@yahoo.com Jaime Hanson, jaime_lh_30@hotmail.com Matt Woolfolk, mrw216@msstate.edu Director of youth activities Amy Cowan P.O.

enter the JNHE. However, if your entries are not received by June 1, you will not be able to show your animals in Kansas City this summer. While you are preparing your cattle for the summer show season, it is important to look into the many contests and competitions that are offered each year at the JNHE. One of my favorites is the illustrated speech contest. The age divisions for the illustrated speech contest are the same as those for JNHE showmanship: peewee, junior, intermediate and senior. The length of the speech depends on your level of competition. Speeches must relate to the beef industry, but not necessarily to Herefords. Each speaker must have at least one illustration, such as a poster or something similar. No electronic devices are allowed for illustrations. Items such as video and PowerPoint slides are no longer permitted. There are several benefits to participating in the illustrated speech contest. First, it allows juniors to stand up in front of a room of people and talk about agriculture. It is important to be able to talk about agriculture to others. Giving a speech at JNHE is a great opportunity to hone

communication skills for the future. Another great benefit to the illustrated speech contest is the prize money available to the winners. The National Hereford Women presents the winners of the junior, intermediate and senior divisions with scholarships. They are awarded as follows:

Senior division: First, second and third place will be awarded scholarships of $750, $500 and $250 respectively.

Intermediate division: First, second and third place will be awarded scholarships of $100, $75 and $50 respectively.

Junior division: First, second and third place will be awarded scholarships of $100, $75 and $50 respectively.

As you finish the spring semester and gear up for the summer show season, keep these things in mind. For entry information and speech contest rules, visit JrHereford.org. Remember to get your JNHE entries in early, and consider putting together a speech for the illustrated speech contest. It will be well worth your effort. HW

NJHA Members: We Have Scholarships for You Well, it’s that time of year when juniors, seniors and even those already in college are looking around for extra dollars to help with school. Well, the National Hereford Women (NHW) is dedicated to helping Hereford youth looking to further their educations. NHW sponsors five different scholarships and four awards — not to mention the Heifer Award Program! All of these are excellent scholarships and hold great honor for those who receive them. The Ed Bible Scholarships are designed to help finance higher education for National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members who excel in communication, leadership, and Hereford and agriculturerelated activities. Bible joined the American Polled Hereford Association staff in 1973 and for 25 years supported the senior, junior and poll-ette associations. He positively influenced the Hereford breed and industry. Therefore, NHW offers four

annual scholarships for a total of $2,500. The Golden Bull Achievement Award recognizes NJHA members who have excelled throughout the junior program. Selection of winners is based on the juniors’ individual accomplishments, as well as leadership, employment, management and herd goals. Each recipient receives a bronze Hereford bull as well as a $1,875 scholarship from the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and NHW. The next prestigious scholarship is the John Wayne Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship is awarded to two individuals who have made outstanding contributions to agriculture and the Hereford industry. Winners must be interested in a field directly related to the Hereford breed. Applicants must submit an essay discussing how John Wayne’s characteristics can benefit the beef industry. Honoring the women who laid the foundation for the National Organization of Pollettes (NOP) is the purpose of this next scholarship. The NOP was established in 1965 and, at that time, it was known as the National Council of Poll-ettes. The Poll-ette Founders Scholarship recipient must be a member of the NJHA and between the ages of 17-22. The amount awarded by the NHW and HYFA is $1,000 given each to a deserving male and female. The Future Cattleman Scholarship is for college students who are active NJHA members. An applicant’s parent or guardian must be a current paid member of the NHW or the American Hereford Association (AHA). The amount of the NHW and HYFA award is $500.

Award programs NHW sponsors the Bud Snidow Award. Snidow was a longtime

AHA employee. The award is given annually to a deserving NJHA member who exemplifies the qualities most admired by Snidow, including honesty, fairness, hard work, enthusiasm and dedication to the Hereford breed and its breeders. The honoree is awarded a belt buckle. Each year the NHW and the NJHA sponsor the Junior Prospect Awards for kids in third through eighth grade. The Senior Prospect Awards are for students in ninth through 12th grades and the Junior Golden Bull Awards for young adults in ninth through 12th grade. Winners are selected from each grade represented based on their written applications. Junior and Senior Prospect Award winners receive leather show halters and Junior Golden Bull recipients receive bronze statues. And lastly, but certainly not the least, is the Hereford Heifer Award program. Each year the NHW and a Hereford breeder award a registered Hereford heifer to an NJHA member at the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). This is a random drawing, and the recipient then receives a Hereford heifer to show the following year. If the recipient brings this heifer back to show the following year at JNHE, he or she will receive an additional $500 scholarship!

Watch for Delegate Nomination Postcards The postcards will be mailed to all American Hereford Association members in late April. Replies must be postmarked by May 31, 2011. Kansas youth are still seeking sponsors for the event. Division and class sponsorships are available as well as show program ads and trade show booths. This year JNHE attendees will be able to set up trade show booths in the stall area. This option is for individuals who have family members with animals and it is more convenient to set up their booth near their stalls. The booth cost will be $200. Vendors selling jewelry or other items in the stall area mush have paid for a booth space and will be given an office trade show participant banner to display. For more information about the trade show, contact Angie Denton at adenton@hereford.org. Hosting the JNHE is a huge investment.

Experience with ET

Embryo transfer can provide many benefits to Hereford breeders. But is an ET program the winning choice for you? by Christy Couch Lee

T

he possibilities are enticing. With the advancements of modern technology, you can produce dozens of calves from your best cows each year. Yes, embryo transfer (ET) can appear to be the golden ticket for your operation.

David Faber, DVM, Max Stotz and Jason Hoffman have years of experience with ET. They say this tool can be a great asset to your ranch. However, with the investment required, you must determine if the odds are in your favor. Before you

Faber is the president and founder of Trans Ova Genetics, Sioux Center, Iowa. In 1980 Trans Ova began offering ET services, and today, its services have grown to include in-vitro fertilization, sexed semen and cloning to beef and dairy producers across the U.S. “Our goal is to be able to help producers take their elite animals and have a great impact on their herds,” Faber says. “And by utilizing ET, the top few percent of females in a herd has the ability to make faster genetic gain or progress for a producer.” Stotz, Star Lake Cattle Ranch, Skiatook, Okla., says by utilizing ET for more than two decades, Star Lake has discovered its highest valued calves are often ET calves. “You are able to identify the cow that you want to get more offspring from — the one you would like to produce more than one calf per year,” he says. “We’re not rocket scientists. We just try to pick the right cows.” In a typical year, Star Lake flushes about 25 cows. In addition to selling embryo calves year-round, Star Lake also sells 40-45 embryos in monthly Internet auctions. Hoffman works with his dad and stepmother, Dennis and Dixie; wife, Kaycee; and hired herdsman, Andy Scasta, on the family operation — Hoffman Herefords, Thedford, Neb. They annually register 200 Hereford calves, with plans to grow to more than 300 registered calves per year — 75% of which will be ET calves. continued on page 18...

...The Winning Ticket? continued from page 17

ET allows you the opportunity to sell groups of full and half brothers, which is very appealing to commercial producers. — Jason Hoffman He has utilized ET for the past six years and recently has taken their ET program to a new level with the addition of an ET center on their ranch. This center allows their embryologist to work yearround on concrete in a heated facility, if needed, to flush about 30 cows at a time. These men say for a program wishing to propel its operation quickly, ET is an excellent option. And, Stotz says, it all boils down to simple mathematics. “Rather than a cow having one calf a year, she can now

have multiple calves in that same time,” he says. “Rather than only producing one $2,500 calf a year, she may now produce three or more times that.” Faber says, in some cases, a producer’s top cows have the ability to improve the entire herd with ET. “The top 5 to 10% of cows in a herd have the ability to produce high-quality calves to significantly provide return on more than one calf a year,” he says. “You really can multiply success and improve the genetic gain in your herd.” And, for cattlemen with a commercial bull market, Hoffman says, ET can also be beneficial. “When you can sell a commercial producer half to full brothers and know the consistency of EPDs (expected progeny differences) and phenotype, it’s very appealing to them,” he says. “And, for the consistency of the cow herd, you can have many cattle bred similarly — flushmates to go back into your replacement herd. That will pay off down the road.” Although the benefits can lure you to begin an ET program immediately, these men say you should keep a few things in mind before you start.

/ April 2011

Look before you leap Faber says before you begin an ET program, you must have realistic expectations of what the technology can offer your program. “There is a large amount of variation — some cows produce very few embryos, while others can produce hundreds a year,” he says. “It’s important to understand there can be wide variations in the end result.” Stotz says you must also determine your market to understand your desired calving dates. Reproductive experts often recommend keeping a cow fresh for 90 days before flushing, he says. For example, if she calves in January, she can be flushed in April. Therefore, you must plan accordingly. Perhaps the greatest initial consideration, Hoffman says, is to determine the financial feasibility of ET for the operation.

Know the costs “No matter what you think it’s going to cost, you should plan on multiplying it by half again,” he says. “You need to determine if your customer base is going to reward you for taking that risk.” Stotz says ET can be expensive. Therefore, you must ensure you’ll make a profit before you begin. “The name of the game is to make a profit or a living,” Stotz says. “If the grandmother is a good cow and that cow is going to produce a top calf, it’s more probable that you’re going to have good offspring.” Faber says ET is a profitable choice when a producer has a superior female that he or she believes can cover the cost of the services and provide a return on the investment made. “You need to have the ability to sell calves or replacement heifers that will have a high value to offset the costs,” he says. Of course, the greatest cost to your ET program could be the donor female, Faber says. Then, you must determine if you prefer to do much of the work at your farm or to take your donor to www.hereford.org


a facility where much of the labor and inputs are included in the fees. In an on-farm setting, the producer provides most of the inputs, including feed, labor and recipient cows (recips). Often, in this situation, Hoffman says, a producer must also be able to adjust his schedule and plan on additional time inputs. “It’s like anything else — you’re going to get out of it what you put into it,” Hoffman says. “The management doesn’t kill you when you follow a routine, but it does get tiresome. We breed off the cow’s heats — 12 hours later. So, if she comes into heat at noon, we breed at midnight. No matter what you’re doing, you have to drop it to keep the proper schedule for embryo work.” At the other end of the spectrum, a producer may take a cow to a center that provides all services, including the pregnant recips, Faber says. “The time involved in the latter is as little as delivering the donor to a center where the services are provided,” Faber says. “The center will manage the donors and provide heat detection, super-ovulation, synchronization and breeding for the donor cows, as well as synchronizing the heat detection on the recips.” The center will also transfer embryos to recips or freeze the embryos. Selection of the embryologist for your operation can play a major factor in costs. However, these gentlemen recommend not allowing cost to determine your technician. Rather, Faber says, experience and service should drive your choice. “Can the ET practitioner provide the necessary services that you need?” Faber asks. “It’s like any other service: locating experienced professionals who have trust, respect and integrity should be your top priority. Really, you should be looking at cost per pregnancy, not cost per service.”

...The Winning Ticket? continued from page 19

In addition, a high-quality donor must also be able to produce the number of embryos that an owner needs, Faber says. “Some cattlemen assume more is better, but that’s not always the case,” he says. “In some operations, they may only wish to have a finite number of embryos out of that particular cow. Then, it’s not about how many, but about having an adequate number of embryos to meet their expectations.” And, should a cow have difficulties in producing an adequate number of embryos, Faber says, technology such as in-vitro fertilization can be of assistance. “Today, we have so many tools available to work with donor cows; we have the ability to produce embryos out of almost all donor cows,” he says. Hoffman says you can learn a lot about a potential donor cow by evaluating her pedigree. “That cow family backs up a lot,” Hoffman says. “I’ll take a much higher risk on one that is plainer but has several good cows behind her, than one who is better phenotypically that doesn’t have the cow herd behind her. That cow family and the genetics are way more important than one special individual.” He says to also evaluate pedigrees for any red flags — anything two or three generations back that could surface again. “Through ET it’s probably going to surface again,” he says. “You want to stay far away from any red flags in a cow family’s history. Otherwise, you take a huge chance of mass multiplying it.” Once you have determined a cow is donor quality, you must ensure she is managed properly if you want to reach her full potential.

Maximize results In order for a donor cow to perform at her peak, you must ensure she has the proper nutrition and management, these men say. Faber recommends you sit down with your herd veterinarian or ET provider to ensure you have the proper rations for your cow herd, including the proper levels of all-natural protein. “We like to see producers utilizing a quality vitamin and mineral program with chelated minerals added,” Faber says. “I believe there’s no ‘magic bullet’ program to magically boost performance. Good nutrition is based on basic, solid nutrition and quality feed ingredients that have been properly stored and prepared.” Nutrition is critical in a cow responding to synchronization, Stotz says. “Poor nutrition can lead to a poor response from the donor,” he says. “It could be one of 10 things that could be causing her not to produce embryos, but it could be No. 1.” Hoffman believes, in their program, cows flush best when they are a bit thinner and in the process of gaining weight rather than a cow with more condition on the decline. “After we flush three or four consistent times, we must be disciplined enough to kick her out, tone her back down and harden her back up,” he says. “Our embryologist always tells

20

us that when breeding cows back after so many flushes, you need to know when to say when.” And, Faber says, let’s not forget the management of the recipient cows. “All of those same management principles apply to the recip,” Faber says. “That’s the part, in farm settings, that may be overlooked. Producers sometimes pay so much attention to the donor cow because she is their pride and joy. Recips are sometimes the afterthoughts, but they are critical to having a successful ET program.” In addition to proper management and nutrition, a producer must consider when he plans to begin an ET program with a female. Some producers flush before a heifer has calved once; some wait until at least one natural calf is born; and some may wait until the cow is a few years old. It’s really a matter of choice.

Devise a plan Faber believes each operation can benefit from different ET programs and there’s no “right” or “wrong” time to ET. “However, I advise producers to wait until a cow has followed through a pregnancy and lactation to most effectively evaluate her potential as a donor cow,” he says. “This allows her to gain a bit more maturity, as well.” Hoffman says they’ve only flushed a virgin heifer a couple of times. “Your embryologist must be disciplined enough to run them on a low drug level,” he says. “You need to have it in mind that you’re going to shoot for a low number of eggs, just so you don’t damage the female. And after they have a calf, then it’s game on.” Star Lake prefers to let a heifer calve once naturally before bringing her into the ET program, Stotz says. “If she’s that good and she has that first calf, then she makes our ET program,” he says. “Our criteria are the same as for many producers. Phenotype is important, as we sell many cattle to junior exhibitors. EPDs are also important.” Once a cow enters the Star Lake ET program, Stotz says, she is flushed three to four times during a one-year period between her first and second natural calf. Hoffman says persistence can pay off when utilizing ET on your cow herd. “We often see that cows are more rewarding on their second and third flushes than on their first,” he says. “We can go from five to seven embryos on the first flush to an average of 10 on the third time.” Although ET can provide many benefits, all three men agree it’s not the right choice for everyone. Hoffman says if you breed functional, good, middleof-the-road cattle with a consistent cow herd, ET may not be needed. “For someone who wants superior cattle and can take a higher risk, the embryo project can really pan out,” Hoffman says. Take the time to put the pencil to the paper and determine if ET really could be a profitable choice for your operation. If so, it truly could be the golden ticket you’ve been seeking.

Dams of Distinction

OF DISTINCTION

1,945 Dams of Distinction Honored

The Dams of Distinction program recognizes superior cows in the breed and the cattle producers who manage them based on data submitted to the American Hereford Association (AHA). Efficient, fertile and productive females are the foundation of the most successful cow herds. To be honored as a 2010 Dam of Distinction, a cow must have: 1) Weaned a calf born since Jan. 1, 2009. 2) Produced at least three calves. 3) Initially calved at 30 months of age or less. 4) Had an interval between the first and second calves of no greater than 400 days. In addition, a 370-day calving interval must have been maintained after her second calf. The longer initial calving interval allows breeders to calve 2-year-old heifers prior to the mature cow herd. 5) Had weaning records submitted to the AHA Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) Program for every calf produced that was born before June 30, 2010. 6) Had a progeny average 205-day adjusted weaning weight ratio of at least 105. A cow receiving the Dam of Distinction honor is a cow that meets the highest standards of commercial cattle production. The cow must do her job, but also her owner must manage the herd correctly to give her the opportunity to excel. Only a few active cows are recognized. All heifers have the potential to be a Dam of Distinction, but only a small percentage fit the job description of an ideal cow year in and year out. For more information about the Dams of Distinction Program, visit Hereford.org, click on “Records/TPR” and select “Recognition Programs.” Females attaining the Dam of Distinction status are recognized with “DOD” after their names on the AHA Web site, Hereford.org. The 2010 Dams of Distinction list recognizes 1,945 Hereford cows from 638 Hereford performance herds in 43 different states. For 30 years Rausch Herefords, Hoven, S.D., has led Hereford breeders with the most cows qualifying as Dams of Distinction. With 308 cows recognized, South Dakota is the top state again this year. A list of the top 20 states, top 20 breeders and breeders who have females recognized follows.

Sires of Distinction

Sires of Distinction

74 Bulls Recognized as Sires of Distinction The Sires of Distinction program recognizes superior Hereford bulls. The American Hereford Association Board of Directors initiated the program in August 2007 to recognize Hereford bulls that sire efficient, fertile and productive females. To be honored as a Sire of Distinction a bull must have produced daughters that have received at least seven Dams of Distinction awards. See Page 26 for the criteria a cow must meet to be recognized as a Dam of Distinction or visit Hereford.org and click “Records/TPR” and select “Recognition Programs.” Bulls attaining the Sire of Distinction status are recognized with “SOD” after their names when doing an animal or EPD inquiry on Hereford.org. A list of the 74 sires recognized as Sires of Distinction follows.

Rocky Mountain Round-Up Highlights of the 2011 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show.

M

ore than 5,000 cattle industry members were in Denver Feb. 2-5 for the 2011 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show. The event is the largest of its kind and includes the annual meeting of NCBA, Cattlemen’s Beef Board, American National CattleWomen, Cattle-Fax and National Cattlemen’s Foundation. The blizzard that hit many regions of the U.S. that week and freezing temperatures didn’t keep cattle producers away. “It was as cold as 25 below zero this week. Kansas City, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, O’Hare, and many other airports were shut down, trying to keep cattlemen from attending,” said Marvin Kokes, NCBA vice

The American Hereford Association (AHA) and Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) LLC booth attracted trade show attendees in Denver. Kaycee Hoffman, owner of Bar None Hat Co., Thedford, Neb., offered attendees hat shaping and cleaning while AHA staff visited with them about the value of Hereford genetics.

president of association marketing. “But the education, engagement and entertainment of the 2011 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show proved to overpower what the snow and the cold could dish out.” NCBA President Steve Foglesong encouraged the attendees at the opening general session on Wednesday to serve as a united front for the industry. “This week we’ve got opportunities to stand tall. We need to agree to disagree and move on. Let’s put together a plan and move this industry down the road,” he said. Highlighting the opening session was Richard Picciotto, the highest ranking New York City firefighter to survive the

Hereford breeder elected to beef promotion operating committee The Cattlemen’s Beef Board seated new members and elected 2011 officers, as well as members of its executive committee and the beef promotion operating committee, during its annual meeting in Denver Feb. 5.

September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He was in the North Tower assisting with evacuation when it collapsed around him. Picciotto said he learned three lessons that day: 1) You have to remember priorities in your life. “Any time there’s a tragedy, you get very focused. Embrace what is important, and don’t lose sight of it,” he explained. 2) This country needs to stay united. “We need to agree to disagree. There is no room for picking sides in organizations or politics. We need to try to fix what we can; we can’t let our minor differences divide us,” he said. 3) “Faith, hope and charity are what got me through this,” Picciotto said, and added, “That’s what we do in this country is help those in need. Let’s not forget that.” Another highlight of the convention was Karl Rove’s keynote address during the second general session on Thursday. Rove is the former senior advisor and White House chief of staff for President George W. Bush. He currently serves as a Fox News contributor and writes a weekly opinion column for the Wall Street Journal. During the speech, Rove challenged NCBA members to “get involved and stay involved” and to contribute to the www.hereford.org


NCBA Political Action Committee (PAC) to help elect members of Congress who support the beef cattle industry. The convention wrapped up Saturday with the NCBA board of directors’ and membership meetings. Bill Donald, third generation Melville, Mont., rancher, was officially elected to succeed Steve Foglesong as NCBA president during the association’s board of directors’ meeting. J.D. Alexander, Pilger, Neb., was elected as NCBA president-elect, and Scott George, Cody, Wyo., is the new NCBA vice president. David Dick, Sedalia, Mo., was elected chairman of the NCBA Federation Division, and Craig Uden, Cozad, Neb., is the new federation vice chairman. The new NCBA Policy Division chairman is Bob McCann of Victoria, Texas, and Don Pemberton of Hopkinsville, Ky., is the new policy vice chairman. CBB directors seated Arkansas cattleman Tom Jones as chairman; Wesley Grau of New Mexico as vice chairman; and Weldon Wynn, also from Arkansas, as secretarytreasurer. In addition to electing the new officer team, NCBA members also voted on new and expiring policy issues, including resolutions on cattle health and well-being, food safety, immigration, cattle marketing and trade, and federal lands ranching. During the annual board meeting, NCBA members approved a beef industry statement of principles. The statement was developed as part of a checkoff funded issues management project and includes the following principles: preserving the environment, protecting our livestock, providing quality food for consumers, enhancing food safety, investing in our communities, embracing innovation, and creating a sustainable future.

Outlook suggests tight global supplies, higher prices and herd stabilization Beef industry economists reported on the 2011 beef industry outlook during the CattleFax seminar on Friday morning. CattleFax predicts strong cattle prices will continue into the foreseeable future, with prices on all classes of cattle at record high levels in 2011 and 2012. Brett Stuart, CattleFax market analyst, said global beef demand is increasing alongside tighter world beef supplies. “2011 will be the fourth consecutive year of global beef production declines,” said Stuart. “This will not correct quickly. We will see very tight supplies moving forward.” A major contributing factor to increasing demand comes from outside U.S. borders. Stuart said business in the international marketplace is growing quickly as improvements to infrastructure and logistics are made. Beef exports are witnessing substantial growth with 75% of all U.S. beef exports going to Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam. “Korea is very aggressively buying beef from the United States,” said Stuart, adding that the foot and mouth disease issue is causing substantial reductions in Korea’s domestic meat supplies. “Last week we had outstanding sales to Korea at 24,000 tons, which is up from 9,000 tons a year ago.” Stuart projects the increasing demand from outside the U.S. will continue the upward trend. He suggested an 8% to 10% increase in U.S. beef exports in 2011 compared to last year. He said it could even surpass his expectation. “I am not saying exports will be up 18% (from 2010), but I’m not saying they won’t be,” he said. Kevin Good, market analyst for CattleFax, said 2011 will be another year of tighter supplies and a “very mild” cow herd reduction. He added that stabilization is also in sight, projecting the early half of the year will bring continued reduction but suggested the decline will simmer in the latter half of 2011. The smaller herd is a “double-edged sword,” according to Good. “Demand will be a notch better this year. Total domestic supplies will be lower this year than last. I am very bullish on price, which is good. But we have to start

retaining heifers and rebuilding the cow herd to meet this demand and compete globally,” Good said. The industry experts offered a sense of cautious optimism. Basically, supplies are tight, global demand is up, live cattle prices are good for U.S. cattlemen and women, and 2011 will be the year of stabilizing the cow herd. “We’re going to see some real profitability over the next several years,” CattleFax Chief Operating Officer Randy Blach said. “The payday is just beginning.” Here are some highlights from the CattleFax Outlook 2011 Executive Summary: Cattle supplies

• Total cattle numbers are down 1.4% for 2011 and another 1% to 1.5% decline is expected by 2012. • Reduced slaughter levels of fed steers, heifers and cows are expected to result in a 373 million lb. (-1.4%) reduction in beef production despite a moderate increase in average carcass weights. • Reduced beef production and increased exports are expected to drive 2011 per capita net beef supplies lower for the fifth consecutive year. Beef demand • Domestic beef demand is expected to be steady to slightly better during the next two years. • Higher fed-cattle prices will result in higher retail prices and could influence menu prices. • Retail beef prices are expected to be less competitive compared to pork and especially chicken in 2011. Cattle and beef prices • Record-high prices are forecasted for all classes of cattle in 2011 with continued increases in 2012. • Fed-cattle values are expected to average near $103 per hundredweight (cwt.) in 2011 with higher prices again in 2012. • Feeder-cattle values are projected to average near $118 per cwt. and calf values are projected near $138 per cwt. • Cull cow values will also experience an increase, averaging near $65 per cwt.
