World’s Perspective

Mastering the Keyboard

by Diane Meyer

Pursuing quality and tackling challenges require a musical approach.

Diane Meyer is the editor of Hereford World. She can be reached at dmeyer@hereford.org.

When this issue went to press midMarch, many parts of the country were dealing with severe weather. The staff at the American Hereford Association send our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by those storms, and we hope you, your family and your herd stayed safe in those adverse conditions. With April upon us, the peak of bull season is tailing off, and plans for marketing this year’s calf crop are underway. Marketing has never been a mindless task, and a challenge unique to the present is the extensive number of communication outlets available for interacting with clients. There are limitless questions to ask when coming up with a marketing plan: What form of advertising appeals most to my customer base? Which publications or websites should I advertise through? What is all this obsession over social media and how in the world can I use it to market my business? If you are like me, it is daunting to establish a game plan when faced with copious options. Many of my mentors have advised, “Just dive in.” But even that requires some forward thinking — you have to make sure the water is deep enough before jumping in just anywhere. Instead of blindly diving into a task, I like to use a strategy I learned from playing piano: Learn the song one note at a time.

Note by note I am no musical genius and was not blessed with the ability to memorize a song after a couple of run-throughs. In order to master a piece, I need to establish my fundamentals. I start by listening to another pianist’s rendition of the piece to get a feel for the melody, tone and tempo. Then I lay the foundation: I go through the score one hand at a time, marking the sheets with a pencil with the fingering needed for a seamless transition from note to note. By the

time I combine my right and left hands, muscle memory kicks in, and I focus on pacing at the right beats per minute with the correct sound dynamics. Oh, yes, and somewhere in the mix, I fine-tune using the foot pedal. It takes hours and hours of consistent practice, but in the end I am rewarded with a sound almost resembling what I hear on the radio. This strategy of slowly building a solid foundation and adding to it little by little is a concept I apply to everything. Whether building your marketing plan, selecting replacements or planting crops, it is important to remember a quality end product takes time to come by — minor, intentional adjustments eventually metamorphize into a successful operation.

In this issue In the April Hereford World, we recognize the exceptional dams of the Hereford breed and the sires who produce those females. See Page 26 for the list of breeders recognized for their Dams of Distinction and Page 32 for the Sires of Distinction. I think it safe to wager breeders of these quality animals did not establish their superior breeding programs overnight — decades of minor adjustments and diligent selection have and will continue to propel these operations forward. Other features include tips for matching your cow herd to your environment (Page 36) and factors influencing fertility in females (Page 42). Glean insight into the latest trends in the beef industry on Page 50 and turn to Page 56 for a recap of the 2019 CattleFax market and weather outlook presented at the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show earlier this year. Finally, see Page 62 for the full rundown on the Fort Worth Stock Show. On behalf of the entire Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) staff, we hope you enjoy this issue. May your spring be bright and your smile brighter. Hereford.org

Breed Focus

Defining Distinction

by Jack Ward

Look ahead with excitement as we commend the best of the breed. The following are MerriamWebster definitions for “distinction” (dis-tinc-tion):

a) The quality or state of being excellent or superior

b) Special honor or recognition

c) An accomplishment that sets one apart Synonyms include:

Jack Ward is the executive vice president of the American Hereford Association. He can be reached at jward@hereford.org.

a) Excellence

b) Greatness

c) Superiority

In this issue of the Hereford World, you will find the updated list of American Hereford Association Dams of Distinction (DOD) and Sires of Distinction (SOD). Producers can be proud of breeding and owning animals making this list. As Webster defines them, these superior animals are set apart with special recognition.

Making a mark This year will certainly define Hereford as the breed of choice to build a commercial cow herd. As cattlemen have made their way through one of the toughest winters in decades, cows needed to be equipped to handle some very taxing environments. Obviously, producers spend substantial time determining the genetics needed to produce an animal with growth and efficiency in the feedlot, which ultimately produces a high-quality and high-yielding carcass offering the taste and tenderness consumers demand. But it all starts with a female that withstands a variety of environments, that gets bred consistently and that raises a calf performing better than its contemporaries. Over the years, I have been asked what type of expected progeny

| April 2019

difference (EPD) trait profile it takes to produce a DOD or SOD. The answer to that question is unique to every member, but the simple answer which applies to everyone is the cows will tell you. It is not always those dams and sires with the most extreme sets of figures that make it on these distinguished lists. Rather, the right combination of traits sets these animals apart — and as soon as you find the right combination, you need to propagate those animals as much as possible. For instance, some areas can handle more mature size with an abundance of milk, but many environments cannot take those genetics and sustain them. Breeders need to remember there are always antagonisms associated with each trait of interest and selecting for “more” is not always going to make you or your customers profitable. Certainly, push your environment, but be sure your environment mirrors that of your customers as much as possible. It has been an interesting and difficult winter across most of the country. If cattlemen were not fighting snow and ice, they were fighting rain and mud. The resilience of cattlemen is amazing, and it is obvious the heart and effort each of you puts forth in moving forward and producing a wholesome product for a growing world population. As you receive this issue of the Hereford World, I hope you have seen more favorable weather conditions and, hopefully, the grass is growing. I know at our house Mary Ann and I will both be happy to see warmer and more peaceful weather. Congratulations to all of those with a cow or a bull recognized as a DOD or SOD. This honor truly is the state of being excellent.

Performance Matters

MSUD Explained

by Shane Bedwell

Understanding the basics of Maple Syrup Urine Disease. I hope everyone is getting some relief in terms of weather. The winter we have endured surely has been trying, and I would like to thank all of our Hereford breeders for their resiliency and dedication. Recently, a genetic defect known as Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) was identified in the breed. I would like to take the time to answer some recurring questions concerning this disease.

Shane Bedwell is the chief operating officer and director of breed improvement of the American Hereford Association. He can be reached at sbedwell@hereford.org.

What is MSUD? MSUD is a lethal genetic abnormality and is a simple autosomal recessive gene. Affected calves have a defect in an enzyme that breaks down complex amino acids in the diet. The resulting buildup of these amino acids in the body causes lethal brain damage. What are the symptoms of MSUD? Affected calves are typically born without symptoms, but by 2 to 4 days old become slow, dull and eventually recumbent. The calf will often throw its head back and lie on its side, unable to rise. These calves may have some swelling of the brain at autopsy, but diagnosis requires laboratory investigation. This disease is also found in humans and is named for the smell of urine observed in human babies — the smell is not always noted in calves. What is the frequency level of identified carriers for MSUD? At this time, less than 1 percent of the 33,000 animals genotyped with the marker test for MSUD have been identified as carriers. Will an animal identified as a carrier always sire a carrier progeny? No, a carrier animal has a 50 percent chance of siring a carrier animal and a 50 percent chance of siring a noncarrier.

8

| April 2019

Can a calf have MSUD if only one parent is a carrier for MSUD? No, for a calf to have MSUD, both parents must be carriers. Even then, there is only a 25 percent chance of having an affected calf. Consequently, this mating profile would also yield a 25 percent chance of an MSUD-free animal and a 50 percent chance of an MSUD carrier. Did the American Hereford Association (AHA) pick and choose which animals were initially tested for MSUD? No, the AHA published all results found for MSUD. Why do some of my genotyped animals have a MSUD result while others do not? The marker test for MSUD was only available on AHA genotype panels from roughly the fall of 2014 through the fall of 2017. Animals previously genotyped outside this timeframe are eligible for a standalone MSUD test at $18. These requests must be made through AHA Customer Service. Going forward, how will MSUD testing be handled when an animal is DNA tested? The AHA has moved to a higher density genotype panel that will return MSUD results along with other abnormality results and a genomic profile. This genotype panel will allow for continued genetic advancement of the breed. How can I identify animals in my herd that warrant testing for MSUD? Members can run a potential defect carrier job for MSUD or any of the genetic abnormalities through MyHerd. This job can be accessed under the “Jobs & Reports” tab. For more information on how to run this job and Hereford.org


to receive a report for MSUD, please use this link: Iorad.com/player/1553175/How-ToRun-The-Potential-Defects-CarriersReport#trysteps-1

for MSUD. With continued testing for MSUD, there will likely be additional animals identified as carriers, so it is best to run the defect carriers report periodically.

When I ran the MSUD carrier report, no animals came up as potential carriers. Does this mean I do not have any animals that could be carriers? Not necessarily, because not all genotyped animals have a result

Where can I access a list of animals identified as MSUD carriers? Members can access a list of MSUD carrier animals at Hereford.org under the “Genetic Abnormality” tab under “Genetics.”

Reports of MSUD to the AHA and to the diagnostic lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are absent in recent years. With an estimated gene frequency of less than 1 percent, the current occurrence of calf losses is estimated at less than 20 per 1 million births and is likely going unrecognized. Even with this low incidence rate, testing of at risk animals should be completed to ensure this abnormality does not propagate.

Genomics Continue to Advance Our Understanding of Calf Diseases by David Steffen, DVM, Ph.D., ACV, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Modest cost sequencing, the ability to cheaply and rapidly genotype tens of thousands of markers, and large genomic databases available to researchers have advanced industry approaches to investigating potentially heritable diseases. Decades ago, investigation was long, costly and often uncertain — breeders may have been reluctant to report problems, and breed groups considered risk and cost when confronted with abnormal calves. Current technology allows modest investments to enlighten producers’ understanding of diseases and can rapidly place tools in the hands of breeders to mitigate impacts and losses associated with deleterious genotypes. Cost benefit analysis is still prudent in prioritizing projects for funding, but benefits and cost reductions allow for affordable investigation of more cases.

Investigation Current investigations into several diseases at the University of NebraskaLincoln (UNL) are being slowed by incomplete reporting and inadequate sampling of affected calves and related individuals. Vigilance in investigating neonatal calf problems is paramount. The first step to investigate calf problems is to establish a clear phenotype definition of the condition. Your local veterinarian can often assist and will accurately diagnose wellHereford.org

known and common calf conditions. Veterinarians are also helpful in accurately communicating phenotypic features of uncommon or emerging diseases, as well as collecting and properly shipping diagnostic or research samples. Breed association field officers also have knowledge of disorders in the breed and can be a conduit to further diagnostic assistance. The cell phone camera is a huge asset to facilitate disease reporting — often those images and a brief description of interpretation from the ranch serve as a valuable starting point. These images and initial reports help determine sampling needs. Samples used to diagnose and to evaluate environmental or infectious disease vary by the condition presented. When calves are reported with a phenotypic or epidemiologic feature suggesting a genetic component may be present, we add sampling to enable harvest and banking of DNA for research. Blood preserved in an EDTA (purple top) blood tube is the easiest sample for scientists to work with as a DNA source. When affected animals are deceased, an ear may be used to extract DNA for research. The ear cools rapidly at death and is an easy sample to collect. It is important to report disorders when samples are still

available. For research, the affected calf, dam, a few half siblings and the sire are sampled for DNA harvest. Samples are saved, and when the analysis suggests further research is justified, genotypic or sequencing studies are pursued. The diagnostic program at the UNL accepts referrals from breed associations and veterinarians. I encourage breeders to contact their breed associations to report concerns and to access assistance. A local veterinarian, a local diagnostic facility or the UNL program can all initiate investigations when congenital calf disease concerns arise, and they will work together as a team with breed associations to solve these industrywide problems.

AHA Hosts MyHerd Webinars

by Laura Loschke

The AHA staff takes great pride in providing the best educational resources to its members.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) launched the new MyHerd platform Jan. 29. All MyHerd users were sent an email invitation with a link to activate their account by setting up a new username and password. A follow-up invitation was emailed March 4 to MyHerd users who still had not activated their new account. Users who have not transferred over are asked to contact the AHA Customer Service department to receive another invitation.

Member testimony and webinars The Association has had great response to the release of the updated MyHerd. Members are enjoying the platform’s userfriendliness and efficiency. Prairie Topp with Topp Herefords in North Dakota says, “I seriously love the new

MyHerd upgrade! It’s notably faster, way more efficient and far easier to navigate. There wasn’t even a transition period. A couple questions and I was up and running. I love it!” With the launch of the updated platform, the AHA hosted a series of webinars in February and March to help members navigate the changes. In the webinars, attendees were given a step-by-step tutorial of the updated platform and had the opportunity to ask questions along the way. The sessions were attended by people from across the globe and have received a great response. Jan Adcock with Adcock Cattle in Illinois says, “[I] enjoyed tuning into the webinar and your overview of the upgrades to MyHerd. At first glance, I really appreciate the easier-to-read screens and the new dropdown

Along with many other valuable changes, the new MyHerd employs a cleaner and bolder look for ease of use.

menus. You did a great job walking us through the changes with the new setup and I look forward to learning more as I dig into using it. I always appreciate your willingness to answer questions!” The AHA staff is committed to providing members with the best learning tools and opportunities as possible. The AHA Customer Service team and I are excited to work on more webinar opportunities and to help the membership in any way we can. We encourage anyone with questions to view the “Help” pages within MyHerd, to watch any of the 20 video tutorials or, as always, to contact Customer Service at 816-842-3757. Laura Loschke is the education and information service coordinator of the American Hereford Association. She can be reached at lloschke@hereford.org.

Username and password reminder The username to log into the new MyHerd is no longer a membership number. Instead, the username will be an email address — this change is an update made to help with security. Users will also create their own password. The AHA will no longer create passwords nor have access to view a user’s password. In the case of a forgotten password, simply click “Forgotten Password” and follow the prompts to receive an email with instructions to reset your password. If the email address designated as the username is forgotten or is no longer accessible, contact AHA Customer Service for further assistance.

CHB Bites

Showcasing Quality

by Kaylen Alexander

“CHB Bites” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program. To get involved with CHB on social media, search Certified Hereford Beef on Facebook and Pinterest, @certifiedherefordbeef on Instagram and @crtherefordbeef on Twitter.

The Certified Hereford Beef ® team kicked off the year in full force by marketing the Certified Hereford Beef brand at the 2019 National Grocer’s Association (NGA) Show in San Diego and the 2019 Annual Meat Conference (AMC) in Dallas. Certified Hereford Beef stood out on both the NGA and AMC expo floors, showcasing a new booth design focusing on the rich history behind the brand and the premium products offered to help retailers succeed in a competitive marketplace. The team sampled several new products during both shows, including a ready-to-eat Certified Hereford Beef pot roast, sous vide prime rib and four varieties of summer sausage. The team focused on value-added items due to their increasing popularity among the millennial generation because of the items’ simple and easy preparation methods. The

Certified Hereford Beef team also showcased retail-ready items like cut steaks and ground beef bricks, which provide solutions the brand can offer to retailers. “We had a lot of great retailers stop by our booth to sample our products and discuss the opportunities Certified Hereford Beef can provide them to be successful in their markets,” says Kaylen Alexander, director of marketing and communications for Certified Hereford Beef. “We are a great choice for many retailers because of the premium product our breed-specific program offers, as well as the marketing opportunities we provide our partners through in-store signage and our farmer and rancher support. The level of customer service our team provides lays a groundwork for success for the retailers who partner with our brand.” In addition to the expo food shows, both the NGA and the AMC

provide attendees access to more than 100 educational seminars and sessions to further their knowledge about the newest industry trends and technologies. “The educational sessions are another great reason we attend both the NGA and AMC shows,” says Trey Befort, American Hereford Association director of commercial programs. “The retail industry is constantly changing, and these sessions give our team the ability to learn about what is new and to capitalize on this knowledge to better serve our customers in the field. Continuing education plays an important role in how we work with our partners to cultivate success for the Certified Hereford Beef brand.” Overall, these two shows provided the Certified Hereford Beef team with the tools, resources and leads to continue the brand momentum and to catapult the brand to success. Each year, the NGA Show hosts more than 3,500 independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, food manufacturers, and service providers for unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage, share and network. The AMC hosts more than 1,600 high-level retail executives focused on one thing — the newest innovations in meat and poultry products retailers need to increase their bottom line. Kaylen Alexander is the director of marketing and communications for Certified Hereford Beef. She can be reached at kalexander@hereford.org.

Youth Movement

Moving Forward with the NJHA

by Taylor Belle Matheny

Edward Everett Hale describes success in a way I feel reflects the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors: “Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.” As our board of directors sat in meetings last summer, we began to dream big about what we could do for our junior membership to successfully fulfill these goals. Our individual classes within the board made goals for what we wanted to achieve during our tenure as board members and planned ways we intended to implement them. As progress continues to be made behind the scenes and as changes are unveiled to our membership, these dreams are becoming a reality. During this

time of implementing changes, working together has allowed us to move toward achieving our goals.

Big changes ahead Our oldest group of board members had a goal to offer a college and career fair at the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) to provide an engaging pathway to network with a wide variety of individuals. During this year’s JNHE, colleges from around the area and industry professionals will be in attendance to help juniors “bridge the gap” between high school and higher education or the work force. Austin, Brooke, Bailey and Nathan are excited to see this event come together and to connect our members with potential opportunities. This is a great way to utilize many valuable resources to help set members up for success. When it came time to discuss NJHA communications, our board felt we could update The Advantage newsletter. We had a great discussion about offering members a newsletter covering education, leadership and scholarship topics. To make sure we were on the right track, we met with juniors attending the Faces of Leadership Conference to hear what they would like to see in the newsletter. The junior board then teamed up with Hereford Publications Inc. to redesign our newsletter and to give it a fresh look. We are excited to incorporate these recommendations and updates to take our newsletter to

the next level. When you get a copy this spring, I encourage you to look at the new changes and, most importantly, to look at the new content. The Advantage has many great resources to help you prepare for the JNHE and contests. With the new design, there is now an opportunity to be featured on the cover. Simply submit a highquality photo in the JNHE photo contest — your photo may be one of the two images from the contest selected as a cover photo. As an agricultural communicator myself, I understand the feeling of getting your work published. Start carrying your camera around with you to capture our next cover shot. Often when we think of change, we are hesitant to take the leap because of the fear of the unknown. When I look at these two exciting changes our board has made for the NJHA, I feel the outcome is one that will take our association forward in many areas. Working together has made our dreams a successful reality for the NJHA. As this year’s JNHE nears and spring turns into summer, I encourage you to find a new way to be involved at JNHE. Start preparing for contests early and get in contact with any junior board member with questions. I am looking forward to this being our best JNHE yet, and with the participation from our junior membership, this will be an easy goal we can all achieve together.

Communications Corner by Kendra Davis

Five Reasons to Attend ‘The Brand’ Marketing Summit

Big or small, new business or old, one of the most important things you must do to stay relevant in the industry is to be a marketer. Marketing can take many forms and do many things for an operation. It can inform your audience and potential customers what your business is about or be a way to engage with clients, or it can build your reputation and allow others to know what you stand for. Most importantly, it can grow your business and sell your product. While most of us know how important marketing is, it seems to get pushed to the backburner because of other things taking precedence. Calves need vaccinations, cows need to be fed, fields need to be planted, etc. That is why the American Hereford Association (AHA) is hosting “The Brand” Marketing Summit — to help farmers and ranchers develop a streamlined marketing plan. The Brand will provide an opportunity to learn from fellow Hereford

breeders and industry experts. Just in case you need some more convincing, here are five reasons to be in Kansas City June 3-4 for The Brand. 1) Develop a better understanding of social media. Participants are sure to learn something new in the Social Media 101 and 102 sessions. Participants will be put into groups based on their experience level while a team of social media gurus help them to gain a better understanding of the marketing platform and to establish a streamlined process for simple execution. 2) Gain insights into trends and marketing in the industry. With more than 15 speakers from diverse parts of the industry, the event will be packed full of information from all segments of the industry. From cow-calf ranchers to sale barn managers to branded-beef company owners, there’s a little bit of everything.

3) Rejuvenate your current brand. Every once in a while, it is a good idea to sit back and analyze your current marketing strategy or to develop a new one completely. The Brand will offer insights on new and innovative ideas you can take back to your ranch and implement into your marketing plan. 4) Make your mark at a low cost. Big or small, your Hereford operation has a story to tell. The Brand will help you develop a strategy to tell your story at a very low cost. 5) Network and idea share with other Hereford breeders. Working for the common cause of promoting your brand while simultaneously promoting the breed we all love, The Brand will give participants the opportunity to analyze marketing stories from other ranches and business owners. Kendra Davis is the American Hereford Association’s director of marketing and communications. She can be reached at kdavis@hereford.org.

The Brand Marketing Summit provides an opportunity to learn from fellow Hereford breeders and industry experts. Some highlights include sharing the Hereford story, building your brand, developing an effective social media strategy and analyzing marketing success stories.

To be successful at anything you have to stay ahead to stay competitive. I am hoping to gain new and useful information from the summit that will position our operation for a profitable future.

You’ll become a marketer, you’ll hear trends, you’ll be around people who will empower you to do more and do better when you go back to your farm or ranch.

We want to be current with the breed and industry updates. We hope to gain valuable knowledge to use to promote beef, Herefords and our cattle program.

Hereford Women

Heifer Award Program Underway

by Trudy Nolles

Over the last few months, I have seen several pictures of baby calves posted on Facebook. Some of these were born on nice green grass, while others were born during famous snow storms. Many steps were taken to get these live calves on the ground — nutrition, overall herd health and bull selection. With many changes in the beef industry, it is rewarding to observe experienced cattlemen sharing their knowledge and accomplishments with younger cattlemen and women. One way a Hereford breeder can mentor a junior member is through the Heifer Award program.

Heifer Award program Each year the National Hereford Women (NHW) and a Hereford breeder award a $1,500 scholarship/credit to a National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) member during the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) toward the purchase of a registered

Hereford heifer. In addition, the NHW offers a $1,000 award after proof of purchase — totaling $2,500 for the junior member. The rules of the contest are as follows: 1) Junior must be present at the JNHE to be eligible. 2) Junior must be 21 years old or younger by December 31 of the current JNHE year. 3) Junior must be a member in good standing with the NJHA. 4) Winners will be drawn during the JNHE and announced during the opening ceremony. 5) The donating breeder agrees to award a $1,500 credit toward a heifer purchased at that breeder’s sale. 6) The Heifer Award winner will have until May 1 of the following year to coordinate with the donating breeder for selection, transfer and registration of the heifer. 7) Heifer Award winners must send a copy of the registration papers to the NHW treasurer, to be received no later than June 15 of the following year. 8) The winner will be awarded $1,000 from the NHW to be used toward the purchase of a heifer from the donating breeder. The winner will receive this amount upon providing proof of the purchase of the heifer along with thankyou notes sent to the NHW treasurer and the donating breeder. 9) Transfers within an individual’s own herd or family herd are not allowed.

10) Donating breeder will provide paperwork to the award winner indicating: • Date of transfer between seller and award winner • Youth Heifer Award winner’s name and address • Hereford heifer registration number and heifer’s name

We would like to thank each and every Youth Heifer Award sponsor, including Mohican Farms/Mohican West, Ridgeview Farm/Bob Goble, Barber Ranch, Churchill/Vanheizen, H2 Ranch, Bill King Ranch, Delaney Herefords/Atkins Herefords, Tennessee River Music Inc. and Hoffman Ranch. Hereford breeders interested in donating to the Heifer Award program may contact the NHW at nationalherefordwomen@gmail.com. The NHW sponsors many scholarships and contests during the JNHE, along with the National Hereford Queen program and the NHW Outstanding Hereford Woman of the Year. Go to HerefordWomem.com to learn more and to become a member. Let’s continue mentoring juniors to help fulfill their dreams!

Keayla Harr, Ohio “I won the NHW (National Hereford Women) heifer drawing in 2013 in which a $1,500 sale credit to Churchill Cattle Co., Montana, was awarded. In September of that year, I was able to purchase a January, Golden Oak Outcross heifer calf out of the Venhuizen’s fall female sale. This female did well as a show heifer, but has made an even better cow being the mother of one of our herd bulls and consistently producing a high-quality calf every year. Being awarded this credit not only gave me the opportunity to add a new female to my herd, but it also allowed me to get to know Dale and Nancy Venhuizen better and to make a new contact within the breed.” Jett West, Wyoming “This scholarship meant so much to me. I was able to start my own little herd of Herefords. I am very thankful for the registered Hereford heifer gift. It was really nice of the Bill King Ranch to give me the chance.” Hereford.org

DAMS

OF DISTINCTION

2,586 Dams of Distinction Honored

Top 20 States

No. of Dams Rank State 1 South Dakota 432 2 Kansas 382 3 Nebraska 298 4 Montana 141 5 North Dakota 132 6 Missouri 131 7 Idaho 105 8 Iowa 87 9 Minnesota 84 10 Texas 77 11 Wisconsin 76 12 Oklahoma 63 13 Wyoming 61 14 Virginia 56 15 Colorado 50 16 Georgia 39 17 Oregon 32 18 Illinois 30 20 California 28 20 West Virginia 28

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 2018 Dam of Distinction, a cow must have: 1) Weaned a calf born since Jan. 1, 2017. 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, 2018. 6) Had a progeny average 205-day adjusted weaning weight ratio of at least 105. A cow receiving the Dam of Distinction honor meets the highest standards of commercial cattle production. The cow must do her job, but her owner must also 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 “Genetics” and select “Recognition Programs.” Females attaining the Dam of Distinction status are recognized with “DOD” after their names on the AHA website. The 2018 Dams of Distinction list recognizes 2,586 Hereford cows from 644 Hereford performance herds in 40 different states. For 38 years Rausch Herefords, Hoven, S.D., has led Hereford breeders with the most cows qualifying as Dams of Distinction. With 432 cows recognized, South Dakota is the top state again this year. A list of the top 20 states and top 20 breeders who have females recognized follows.

105 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 “Genetics” and select “Recognition Programs.” Bulls attaining the Sire of Distinction status are recognized with “SOD” after their names when doing an animal or expected progeny difference (EPD) inquiry on Hereford.org. A list of the 105 sires recognized as Sires of Distinction for the first time follows.

evaluating animals based on cost per pound of calf produced — including cow maintenance — rather than average weaning weight. “In general, cow carcass weights are beginning to plateau, and that’s a good thing,” he says. “This suggests that producers are making good use of mature cow weight expected progeny differences (EPDs) and are using them to control mature cow size … therefore controlling cow costs. “Every producer needs to monitor their herd records to determine if average weaning weight and perhaps more importantly, weaning rate, are improving over time,” he continues. “If weaning weights aren’t increasing, what else can minimize cost and improve profitability?” Lalman poses a “job description” and an “annual performance review” against which cows should be measured to determine if they are a good match to their environment and production system. He notes a cow should: 1) Wean a calf every 365 days

atching a cow herd’s genetic potential to the resources an operation has at hand is the best way to find efficiency and to improve profitability, according to Oklahoma State University Professor and Extension Beef Cattle Specialist David Lalman, Ph.D. At the recent four-state KOMA Beef Conference, Lalman shared his insights with Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas producers on the importance of matching cows with their environment and forage resources. He also emphasized the importance of

2) Wean a calf every year for 10 consecutive years 3) Be problem free and should not require extra handling or treatment for medical problems or diseases 4) Require minimal protein or energy supplementation 5) Utilize all of her country — travel and forage where the grass, weeds and brush have not been grazed 6) Get fat in the good years and maintain reasonable body condition in the tough years 7) Produce a calf with the capacity to gain on grass, convert in the 5s, gain 4 pounds a day and never need treatment — calves should convert to a finished product with the potential to build a ranch’s reputation

Finding the bottom line Lalman presented data from the Kansas Farm Management Association evaluating 79 commercial cow-calf operations which showed the top onethird of those operations averaged $415 more net return per cow than the bottom one-third. Of the $415, about 30 percent of the difference could be attributed to output: weaning weight, calf prices, weaning rate and cull cow income. The remaining 70 percent was found in operational production costs — the top one-third of operations figured out how to get more out of less. By applying many of the principles Lalman outlines, Alex Mih, who owns and operates MM Ranch Polled Herefords along with his wife, Alison, and his mother, Mariam, says gaining a Hereford.org

better understanding of overlooked economic issues in the beef industry has helped make their operation more profitable. The Chanute, Kan., based Hereford operation began in the 1960s and has grown to calve around 1,200 cows, split into fall and spring calving seasons. “We are in a transition area of southeast Kansas,” Mih says. “West of us is all native grass and east of us is all fescue — we have both, so we try to take advantage of both types of forage. That is one of the reasons we have a fall-calving cow herd. We do a lot of fescue stockpiling for the fall and find that our fall-born calves can do well on that. It also spreads out our calving work into two different seasons.” Utilizing resources and evaluating operations is critical in minimizing inputs. “In our cow selection criteria, we emphasize fertility, disposition, udder quality, marbling and moderate mature cow size,” Mih says. “In the mid2000s we realized our cull cows were weighing between 1,400 and 1,600 pounds, and we knew we were headed in the wrong direction.” Current research shows the average U.S. mature cow weight is more than 1,400 pounds. Today, the cows in Mih’s herd average 1,200 pounds. “Learning from Dr. Lalman and Dr. [Kris] Ringwall, we realized cow maintenance costs go up to a point where it isn’t covered by a larger calf. For every 100 pounds of increase [above 1,200 pounds], research shows the increase in calf weight was only about 6 pounds. So, you aren’t gaining much, except in having a much, much greater nutritional need for the cow,” Mih explains. In addition to the ratio of pounds of cow to pounds of beef weaned, Lalman also asked producers to think about other production variables directly influencing their bottom line such as milk production, fertility, feed efficiency and the longevity of cows in the herd.

Finding the best balance of milk production to weaning weight is one important component in discovering maximum profitability in a cow herd.

“However, in many situations, the efficiency of extra milk to extra calf weight gain is not very good. This is because calves consume more forage as they grow. During the last half of the lactation period, the less milk the dam produces, the more forage the calf consumes. Therefore, if forage quality is reasonably high, then high milk yield in the dam results in replacing forage with milk. And forage is generally a less expensive nutrient source than milk.” To determine the economic efficiency of increasing milk yield for the purpose of improving ranch profitability, a critical question is: How much cow feed is required to get another pound of milk production? It takes about 2 pounds of a 70 percent total digestible nutrient (TDN) diet to achieve one more pound of milk production. This diet represents high quality forage, similar to lush spring growth. For example, it takes 42 pounds of milk (on average) to gain an additional pound of weaning weight and about 2 pounds of high-quality feed to achieve one more pound of milk production: 42 pounds milk × 2 pounds feed = 84 pounds total feed. Therefore, an additional pound of calf continued on page 38...

Valuing added milk pounds One of the most influential factors contributing to a calf’s weaning weight is the quantity of its dam’s milk production. If a cow does not produce enough milk, a calf will fail to reach its genetic potential; too much milk production, however, will increase a cow’s maintenance requirements and, many times, financially negate the calf’s nominal weight gain. Lalman advocates finding the ratio of milk production to weaning weight best matching the resources an operation has at its disposal, noting research shows it takes an average of 42 pounds of additional milk production to achieve only one additional pound of calf weaning weight. “Based on the results of eight different studies, we know more milk yield in cows does generally result in more calf weaning weight,” Lalman says.

weaning weight requires the cow to consume about 84 pounds more high-quality feed. “In many cases, modest negative selection pressure on milk production would better fit cows to their forage resources,” Lalman says.

If you buy females from cows that produce calves every 365 days and select bulls out of reproductively successful cows, you have a better chance of creating a fertile cow herd.

Increasing fertility Among the many commonalities between seedstock and commercial operations, a live calf to market is the difference between profits realized and profits lost. The annual maintenance cost of a cow remain the same whether she produces a calf or not, and while 100 percent calf-crops from breeding through gestation are difficult to achieve, research has shown producers can use heifer selection to help hedge fertility issues within a herd. “We always try to select heifers that were calved in the first one-third of the calving season — the earlier in the season, the better,” Mih says. “Cattle from that early group of calves have inherent fertility advantage we want to put back into the herd.” Like many producers, Mih also selects replacement heifers based on a balanced criterion of growth by assessing birth weight, weaning weight and yearling weight. Adhering to a strict 60-day calving season in both fall and spring herds, all heifers are bred to calve at 2 years old. Heifers that do not settle in the first 60 days of breeding are removed from the herd and fed out. Lalman applauds such rigorous strategies, noting, “If you buy females from cows that produce calves every 365 days and select bulls out of reproductively successful cows, you have a better chance of creating a fertile cow herd.”

Converting data to beef Seeing the value in capturing feed efficiency data, MM Ranch partnered with Green Springs Bull Test, Nevada, Mo., in 2007 to purchase a GrowSafe® system. Since then, every head of cattle retained in the MM herd has been individually tested for residual feed intake (RFI) and ultrasounded for carcass measurements. “We try to only use bulls that are feed efficiency tested, but it is hard to find them, so we usually use 50 percent home-raised bulls and 50 percent outside

38

— David Lalman bulls,” Mih notes. “We also [feed efficiency] test all of our heifers.” Moderately framed MM bulls and heifers are sold across the Midwest and into Texas, providing genetics that add value to a herd with the potential of reducing feed costs. “We sell bulls and heifers mostly to commercial operations, and there always seems to be a good demand for them … especially quality females,” Mih says. Replacements are not the only source of herdimproving performance data collected. Mih receives individual carcass data on the 450 head retained through finishing, an avenue MM Ranch pursued because of the genetic and input reduction advantages the feed efficiency and carcass data provide. Identifying feed-efficient cattle is one of the ways MM Ranch works to lower input costs, as feed-efficient cattle should have an effect on the bottom line. The results from the carcass-tested calves also factor into Mih’s selection decisions. “What the carcass data results give us is a lot of information on where our cow herd is and which bulls are producing calves with economically relevant traits,” he says. At the end of the day, creating a better match between cows and the environment, while improving post-weaning traits, requires a long-term commitment. To see both economic and genetic gain, producers will have to challenge their cows to reach their genetic potential in their environment. Lalman suggests matching cows to forage and notes that for many herds, modest negative pressure on milk production would improve the match to forage resources. There are many tools to minimize cow costs while making progress in post-weaning efficiency and carcass traits — producers do not have to choose one over another. “Producers today have more tools than they did 30 years ago, and we are seeing the progress of those tools in the phenotype of cattle,” he says.

Growth and size. Most beef producers have been selecting for growth and carcass traits for the past 50 years at the expense of reproduction. A problem in many herds is producers have selected for more growth and less back fat, inadvertently selecting for lower levels of fertility. Those cows may wean off big calves, but they tend to be hardkeeping, high-maintenance, unproductive cows. The all-too-common “solution” to this problem has been to reduce stocking rates and/or increase supplemental feeding — instead of producing cows well-suited to their environment, many producers have artificially changed the environment to fit their cows. Hendrick challenges the belief the two most determining factors of pregnancy rates are the age and size of heifers at breeding. “I agree with age as a criteria, but size is a tricky topic,” he says. “It’s all too easy when selecting heifers to choose the bigger animals, but they may be slower to mature.” Bigger heifers are often still growing at the time smaller ones have already reached puberty. Hendrick has been working with feedlot clients as well as cow-calf producers to receive carcass data on heifers and then estimating their mature body weight. He has found cows in most breeds today are much larger than they used to be on average. “This makes it hard to judge a heifer and determine whether she will mature to be 1,300 pounds or 1,500 pounds,” he says. “When estimating whether a heifer is between 55-65 percent of her mature body weight at breeding time, you don’t really know. You could look at the Hereford.org

Replacement selection. When selecting replacement females, one thing to keep in mind is the ideal cow will calve on time each year. “It’s important to put selection pressure on replacement heifers with a short breeding season — just one or two cycles,” Hendrick says. “The ones that don’t breed early are not as fertile.” He recommends giving heifers a very short time with a bull and culling those that are not pregnant. Additionally, he advises keeping heifers from older, dependable cows with longevity in the herd to create a more fertile herd in the long run. It helps to select for genetics producing lower birth weights, but still provide good growth after birth. A short gestation period also allows for lower birth weights, and gives the cow more time to breed back. “Fertility and performance don’t have to be completely antagonistic,” Hendrick notes. “We can try for a happy medium rather than saying some traits are maternal and some are terminal. With conscientious selection, the herd can do a good job of both.”

Maintaining a short calving window on heifers can aid in selecting profitable females to retain in the herd.

dam and have an idea, but that’s only half the equation. We don’t always know what genes for size the heifer got from her sire,” he explains. Fleshing ability. Fertility is primarily a function of fleshing ability, which is a function of low maintenance requirements. Reproduction is a luxury — it cannot happen until maintenance requirements have been met and cows are storing energy reserves in the form of fat. Easy-fleshing and easy-keeping cows tend to be more fertile than cows requiring a lot of feed to get them bred. “Measuring individual animal intakes and feed efficiency is something we don’t give a lot of thought to in the cow herd,” continued on page 44...

difficult for them to rebreed in 80 days. It may stretch to 100 days or longer.” Proper nutrition is necessary for a female to return to heat — and if she is subject to a short breeding season, she will likely end up open if she did not receive adequate nutrients. Hendrick says body condition scores are a good indicator of sufficient energy and protein levels in the diet, but to not “forget the minerals. … Minerals are important for cows cleaning, and having vigorous calves, and are also important for fertility,” he says. “We see different minerals in forages, and ultimately in cows and in how they perform reproductively.” Producers should check the mineral levels of their feeds and, sometimes, their soils. Hendrick suggests checking mineral levels in feed first — if the feed is lacking in certain minerals then checking the soils growing those feeds would be necessary. Soil minerals can vary by region and even by pasture. In some regions, soil is known to be deficient in copper or selenium and other important trace minerals. Additionally, mineral profiles vary by plant type even between plants grown in the same soil. Cattle are adaptable, and will naturally seek out plants to help balance their diet, but if there is a serious mineral deficiency it will show up — often in the animal’s fertility and breed-back/pregnancy rate. Proper nutrition is critical to fertility in a cow herd.

Disease. Reproductive diseases like vibriosis Hendrick says, noting there are always some or trichomoniasis may adversely affect pregnancy cattle that hold their flesh better than others rates. Other diseases including infectious bovine under the same environmental conditions. Cows rhinotracheitis (IBR), bovine viral diarrhea need to be able to maintain themselves and (BVD) and leptospirosis are noted for causing still wean enough pounds of calf, and become abortion. “These are problems we may not see pregnant again. If a cow holds her weight but until after breeding season, when cows come doesn’t produce enough milk for her calf, she’s up open, or lose their calves during pregnancy,” also not what you want. It’s often best to select Hendrick points out. “Some of these diseases are heifers from the good, old sleepers because you see the It’s important to put cows that stay in the herd, cows being bred and think raise a good calf every year, is fine, but with selection pressure on everything and never missed a calf. early embryonic loss the cows may cycle back again.” He replacement heifers Nutrition and body advises working with your with a short breeding veterinarian to come up with a condition.

may have complications afterward,” Hendrick explains. “The less we have to intervene at calving, the less risk for causing infections in the cow or heifer afterward.” Don’t forget the bull. A bull with borderline fertility may sire daughters with borderline fertility. “We often correlate the bull’s scrotal circumference with fertility of his daughters,” Hendrick says. “There’s been a push to select for larger scrotal size, and some emphasis on this is good, at least meeting the minimum for the age of the bull. The bull also needs an acceptable number of normal sperm and good libido.”

Productivity in a cow herd is a two-way street — selecting for fertile bulls is just as important.

A study of 8,000 cows have been pregnant with a second calf. Dystocia and inadequate feeding — particularly during the last trimester — were the culprits in this case. Without proper nutrition for her own growth and maintenance, her fetus and lactation, a cow cannot cycle soon enough to breed back. Mickelsen notes, “Some cattlemen still believe that if they feed heifers too well during the last trimester they will have bigger calves and more calving problems, so they don’t feed their heifers adequately.” However, he points out they are shortchanging cows when needs they have high nutritional needs. “Inadequate feed will reduce birthweight a little, but is detrimental to the heifer and to her ability to create adequate colostrum,” Mickelsen stresses. “If you feed them poorly during their last trimester it causes too many problems. The heifer puts it all into the calf and won’t breed back.” Still, there was an age group which experienced a 97 percent pregnancy rate. “The most successful group in our study were the 6,000 cows in the 4 to 9- yearold group,” Mickelsen says. “They are in their prime and tend to have good body condition. They no longer need extra nutrients for growth, and know how to get to the feed trough.” Within that group, though, was a group of “old gummer cows,” where only 78 percent were pregnant. This might vary

from ranch to ranch, depending on the feed program, management, health program, and genetics of the cow. Crossbred cows, especially, tend to last longer in the herd before they are deemed too “old.” “The clients who took really good care of their cows and monitored them didn’t have very many open cows,” Mickelsen observes. “A good [vibriosis] and [leptospirosis] vaccination program seemed to help. We also didn’t see much IBR [infectious bovine rhinotracheitis] or BVD [bovine viral diarrhea] in those herds. Our main problems seemed to be trichomoniasis and nutrition. In the herds where at least 25 percent of the replacement heifers came up open, Mickelsen asked two questions: Number one was the fertility of the bull(s) and number two was nutrition. “Inadequate nutrition can delay puberty, lower conception rates, decrease skeletal and muscle growth and increase the frequency of dystocia and failure to cycle again after calving,” Mickelsen says. “In one herd we looked at, 87 percent of the heifers were not cycling due to lack of protein and energy in their diet. Sometimes it’s partly genetics if the heifers are bigframed slow-maturing cattle, especially if they haven’t had adequate feed. Our study showed that in this group it was primarily a feed problem.”

Duane Mickelsen, DVM, spent his career specializing in reproductive problems in cattle and is the first veterinarian to diagnose trichomoniasis in Washington, Oregon and Montana in 1978. Commonly known as “trich,” this venereal disease in cattle leads to infertility, low pregnancy rates, extended calving seasons and abortions. At the time, Mickelsen and his students were keeping records on more than 8,000 cows. “We saw open cows with an involuted uterus, which signified abortion,” he says. “Some cows were pregnant and then a few days to a few months later, they sloughed the fetus. That’s when I started looking closer and discovered trichomoniasis. Those cows were pregnant early on, but lost the fetus.” Cows examined in the study were classified into different age groups. One group included 1,000 heifers — these had been exposed to a bull and should have been pregnant with their first calf. “A high percentage of them were not pregnant,” Mickelsen says. “The 2-year-old group had calved and should have bred back again for a second calf. A similar number of them did not get pregnant.” He cites dystocia as a main reason for poor breed back in the 2-year-olds. “Calving ease is a major factor in a heifer’s future ability to breed back,” he explains. In the 3-year-old group, 25 percent of the cows were open when they should

Seven highlights heard at the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention. by Kindra Gordon

N

PHOTOS COURTESY OF NCBA

early 9,000 beef producers and industry representatives gathered in New Orleans, Jan. 29-Feb. 2, for the Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show. The latest research on topics from herd health to forage management was presented in various educational sessions, market outlooks and policy updates were shared and innovative discussions outlined advancing beef markets and product development in the ever-changing consumer-driven marketplace. Presented here are the talking points shared with the cattle industry throughout the week.

Bill Cordingley called upon beef advocates to be transparent and open in today’s cluttered media landscape.

1

Consumer confidence and demand

Bill Cordingley, head of wholesale banking for Rabobank North America, provided the keynote at the Cattlemen’s College opening session. He shared consumers are continuously looking for authenticity and often feel conflicted in their food choices.

| April 2019

“Eating food is now more complex than ever,” he said, explaining consumers will eat for good, for themselves, for their communities and for the environment. “Those active on social media are creating a new truth for the consumer. Consumers are looking for authenticity.” To address this trend, he said, “It comes down to trust. Consumers must feel the beef industry is on board with growing a better world together through continuous improvement.” Therefore, he advised, “Favor transparency and openness in our dealings with the community. Tell what we do and how we do it. … The beef industry must become better at telling their story. We need an army of advocates.” Looking globally, Cordingley expressed optimism for U.S. beef in the area of exports, noting there are few significant competitors to America’s high-quality, cornfed beef. There are currently 300 million consumers in China classified as wealthy, and many still-developing export markets

have rising middle- and upper-class consumers — all of which indicate more demand for a high-quality protein source. Cordingley reported exports add about a $300 value per head, and he anticipates exports currently at about 12 percent of the market share could grow to 15-20 percent of the global market.

Superior quality

Bill Thoni, vice president of cattle procurement for Cargill, noted the quality of U.S. cattle today is “outstanding.” He reported, on average, about 80 percent of cattle coming to market are in the top two quality grades of Prime and Choice, with 7-10 percent of carcasses reaching Prime. “The quality of our cattle today has never been this high,” Thoni said. However, he expressed, “The caveat is we are fat as an industry. The amount of yield grade 4s was historically 10 percent and is now 20-25 percent. We are going to have to deal with this down the road. That’s inefficient product.” Hereford.org


Cargill Sustainability Director Heather Tansey also advised Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification to everyone in the industry. “It’s our opportunity to show our consumers we care about doing things right,” she said.

3

Traceability

A panel discussion on traceability highlighted the efforts of three current pilot projects in Kansas, Florida and Texas. Regarding a way to increase producers’ understanding of the importance of traceability, Ross Wilson, chief executive officer of the Texas Cattle Feeders Association, said, “Can I use the word mandatory?” His comment evoked scattered applause from attendees throughout the room. “We’ve been talking about [traceability] for 20 years,” he added. “At some point in time the industry must make tough decisions or we will be here 10 years from now having the same discussion.” Wilson acknowledged decisions must be made as to how a system will work and which technology (high or low frequency) will be used but concluded, “We are behind nearly every other beefproducing country in the world [on traceability]. It’s difficult, but it’s not rocket science.”

Potential for trade

In the closing general session, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue emphasized that a top priority for agriculture is “trade, trade, trade.” Likewise, regarding international trade, NCBA’s Kent Bacus shared one of NCBA’s top priorities is convincing Congress to ratify the new U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA). Bacus noted Korea is one of the best success stories for beef exports in the past year and eyes are on growing access and reducing tariffs in Japan and China. Regarding this existing potential, he reported the U.S. Meat Export Federation estimates China could be a $4 Hereford.org

Cargill staff members Nathan Pike, Bill Thoni and Heather Tansey highlighted the high-quality product U.S. beef producers provide year after year and noted the importance of sharing that trend with consumers.

billion market for U.S. beef in the next few years — if trade barriers are removed. Also on the watch list is a beef trade agreement with the United Kingdom (U.K.), which is set to leave the European Union March 29. However, formal trade talks cannot begin until Brexit occurs. As the fifth largest economy in the world, the U.K. represents sizeable market potential for the U.S. The U.K. imported $1.7 billion of beef in 2018, but 86 percent of that came from other European Union countries which offered nonhormone treated cattle (NHTC).

Grow yards

RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness Senior Analyst Don Close shared grow yards — or backgrounding facilities — are becoming increasingly important within the beef industry. Grow yards provide an avenue for family operations to expand and to bring in a new revenue stream. Close noted these facilities are helping to improve the performance of lightweight and high-risk cattle for a seamless transition to commercial feedlots. Furthermore, grow yards allow for increased economies of scale due to shared resources with feedlots. To achieve efficiencies and success, calf management in grow yards should be based on a close relationship between the grow yard and the commercial feedlot — even sharing a nutritionist

and veterinarian if possible. A solid relationship can also avoid duplication in processing while promoting health and performance at lower cost of gain. “Commercial feeders increasingly have marketing agreements that require cattle to meet specific feeding and management regimens with targeted out dates and finished weights,” Close said. Grow yard operators should also establish relationships with a handful of commercial feedlots to improve the odds of having multiple buyers. “I don’t think grow yards will displace conventional stocker operators, but it will increase competition for calves, which will be price supportive,” he noted.

...Industry Insights continued from page 51

For the best economies of scale, Close suggested grow yards strive to handle 3,000-5,000 head at a time. Typically, commercial feedlots want backgrounded cattle to gain up to 250 pounds within 150 days. However, feedlots may want cattle coming at different weights, allowing a grow yard to tailor cattle for specific needs. Regarding labor, Close said high-risk calves require more hands-on work and animal health knowledge. A good rule of thumb is to figure 1.5 people per 1,000 head.

Financial self-sufficiency

Farm financial consultant Mary Jo Irmen shared a message of seeking self-sufficiency instead of relying on government bailouts. Irmen asked attendees, “Who is running your business? Your accountant, your banker or you?” She noted farmers and ranchers often find themselves asset rich, but cash poor — with the bank controlling their paycheck. She also expressed frustration that banking has not changed for the past 100plus years, which contributes to the

Cattlemen and women gathered at the popular Cattlemen’s College workshops to gain industry knowledge on a variety of topics pertinent to the beef industry.

cash flow struggle many farmers and ranchers experience. But, Irmen believes family farms and ranches can break this dire financial cycle by using whole life insurance. Irmen has authored her own book, “Farming Without the Bank,” which suggests using the cash value of life insurance as a means of financing to benefit successive generations. She refers to it as the Infinite Banking Concept. For example, say Grandpa starts a whole life insurance policy on himself at age 60 and budgets for $20,000 of premium every year. If he passed away 20 years later at 80 years old, the death benefit on the policy would be more than $650,000 — which his son, and farm business partner, would receive income tax free. This would allow Grandpa’s son to have access to cash for operating and other expenses. If his son takes out a similar life insurance policy, the next generation would also benefit financially.

Retail

On the retail beef marketing front, efforts continue to market innovative products including “Beefshi” — a spin-off of sushi initially launched in 2018. This year, regionally inspired flavors have been created with input from state beef councils and Beef

Checkoff funds. These include the St. Paul roll, representing Missouri; the Dansk roll, representing Minnesota; the Taco Maki, representing Arizona; the BeefyWecky Maki, representing New York; the Muffarolleta, representing Louisiana; and the Beefy California roll. These items and recipes were showcased to retailers at the Annual Meat Conference in March. The “Chuck Knows Beef” campaign is also growing. Powered by Google Artificial Intelligence, Chuck (available for download at ChuckKnowsBeef. com) provides information found on BeefItsWhatsForDinner. com through the ease of using a computer, mobile phone, Amazon Alexa or Google Home Assistant. Efforts to expand Chuck’s use by consumers include Pandora radio ads and YouTube videos, as well as encouraging more retailers to use Chuck as a resource at the meat case and butcher counter. Additionally, Beef Checkoff funds are being used for a new effort called “The Drive,” which aims to connect and to communicate with producers via print, online and social channels. Producers can subscribe to print or email copies of the monthly newsletter at DrivingDemandForBeef.com.

CattleFax Market Outlook:

Forecasting for the Future Cattlemen and women flocked to the 2019 CattleFax Outlook Seminar during the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans.

C

attle producers have been faced with harsh weather, uncertainty regarding policy decisions and a plethora of other challenges over the last year. Even so, many remain optimistic for this fiscal year. Marketing experts from CattleFax provided an all-encompassing look at the market outlook for cattlemen and women during the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show earlier this year.

Douglas notes as the highpressure ridge moves into the Rockies this spring with a split jet favoring moisture in the Northwest and Southern Plains, the eastern third of the country will turn drier. “After a cooler February, the United States will mostly enjoy a relatively mild spring with a reduced threat of delayed planting,” Douglas says. Summer conditions are highly dependent on how abruptly El Niño fades. Douglas predicts La Niña conditions are unlikely to occur in the next eight months because the

Goodbye, El Niño

equatorial current is showing slow cooling only. “The residual warmth along the equator will lead to a wetter summer in the southern half of the U.S., while warm waters off the coast of Mexico will favor an active monsoon season in the Southwest,” Douglas explains. This enhanced summer monsoon is forecasted to promote a strong ridge of high pressure along the Canadian border — leading to warm, dry weather and a spotty drought forecast for the Corn Belt by late summer.

Weather has been on the forefront of cattle producers’ minds lately, as many have experienced recordbreaking low temperatures and moisture coming out of winter. Art Douglas, Ph.D., Creighton University, Omaha, Neb., predicts weather patterns will shift away from El Niño as a strong ridge builds off the West Coast and a trough becomes established in the Great Lakes.

GRAPHS COURTESY OF CATTLEFAX

Kevin Good enlightens attendees on what to expect from the markets in 2019 and beyond.

Coffee shop talk: cattle reports Regarding the market outlook, CattleFax analyst Kevin Good is optimistic prices and demand will remain strong. “We’ve been on one heck of a good run for a few years, and I expect that to continue into 2019,” Good says. “However, we expect to see margins begin to compress and leverage to shift from the cow-calf and stocker sectors to the feeder as we expand the supply of cattle.” The beef cow herd has expanded over the last five years, and this cycle is expected to be completed within the next two years. Therefore, Good says, price risk remains apparent — cattle producers will receive a smaller percentage of the retail beef dollar as supply increases. In tandem, a healthy economy, with higher wages and job growth, supports prices and domestic demand. CattleFax projects the all-fresh retail beef price to average $5.73 per pound, up $.06 from last year, while the composite cutout will rise $4 to an average $216 per hundredweight (cwt.) during 2019. Fed cattle prices are expected to be steady during 2019, averaging $117 per cwt., with market resistance at the $130 level and downside risk to $100 per cwt. at the low end of the trading range. Good attributes a larger supply of cattle outside of feedlots, coupled with limited profitability in the feeding sector, will hinder demand and pressure feeder cattle prices. CattleFax projects 750pound steer prices will range from $130$160 per cwt. with an average at $147 per cwt. for the year ahead.

Each year cattle producers have consistently increased the quality of U.S. beef.

As cattle numbers continue to increase, demand and prices may be hindered.

...CattleFax Market Outlook continued from page 57

Livestock expansion is supporting the increase in corn and wheat acres; however, soybeans are experiencing a decline.

“The relatively strong calf market we saw in 2018 will be under pressure this year,” Good says. “However, values in the spring should have the potential to reach the mid-$180s. On the other hand, a larger calf crop and softer demand have the potential to erode prices to the $140-level next fall, so there is certainly more price risk in feeder cattle and calves than in the fed cattle markets in 2019.” During the year ahead, Good notes cull cow prices will have additional downside risk. “Years

of expansion and poor operating margins in the dairy sector are generating more cull cows, which weighs on the markets,” he explains. “The additional supply and the limited packing capacity for non-fed cattle will result in a market which averages approximately $55 per cwt. during 2019, with a springhigh near $60 per cwt., and a falllow in the lower $40s.” On the feed and grain side, prices are expected to remain stable during the year ahead, as the last several years of livestock

expansion have supported demand. Corn and wheat acreage is expected to increase — corn by 2 million (91 million acres total) and wheat by 1 million (49 million acres total). However, soybeans are projected to decline by 2.2 million acres to 87 million total acres. Collectively, a glimpse into a crystal ball suggests price risk maintains throughout 2019 and into 2020. With record-breaking beef production projected for the next few years, the supply chain may undergo a burden. While the increase in production and improved grazing conditions is encouraging, it is also a doubleedged sword. This increase is projected to weaken bargaining power for cattle producers into the next decade. In contrast, beef exports are on pace to increase and to hold domestic beef supplies flat. Per usual, conversations with trade in other countries, such as Japan and China, remain critical to U.S. protein exports. CattleFax CEO Randy Blach stresses trade is of utmost importance to cattle producers moving forward. “Longterm, the profitability of our industry is tied to trade,” he notes. “We must have open markets and science-based trade standards for our products if we’re going to continue the run of profitability we’ve experienced in recent years.” The big picture indicates trends will remain positive and profit opportunities will remain, so long as focus stays on adding value, minimizing costs and managing market risk.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

Do the Hard Things I would never cut it as the First Lady of the United States. How do I know this? Being a local school board member’s wife is sometimes more than I can handle. My husband, Craig, is wrapping up his second year of his first four-year term on the local school board. His intentions were noble when he ran for election. His grandpa had served. His dad had served. He saw it as his way to give back to the community in which he was raised — a way to try to help make the school district better for our children and for all children in the community.

aren’t important. What is important, however, is that a school board often receives confidential information from which to base decisions — information that cannot be shared with the public. Sometimes, it’s for the protection of a student. Sometimes, its’ for the protection of a faculty member’s privacy. Regardless, it’s confidential. When members of the community see a decision being made and begin to make judgements, they often don’t have the full story. Let’s just say things can get ugly — especially where social media is involved.

Perspective

Rather than saying something I shouldn’t, I’ve decided to remove Facebook from my phone for a time. Truly, my blood pressure is thanking me. What is most disappointing to me, however, is that those who often raise the loudest noise don’t often step up to serve in these roles. The good folks who would be great in these roles? Well, they see all the mess they could get themselves into. Who in their right mind would want to volunteer for that craziness?

I was proud of him — still am. But, oh, how I underestimated how much differently I would view some in our community after watching various issues be raised, with half-truths being shared on social media and people whom I have considered friends questioning the integrity of the board. I’m not a controversial person by nature. Really, I hate confrontation. But recently, our board has been dealt a no-win situation. The details

It’s not just limited to the school board. By nature, livestock folks are often community people. They step up to serve in so many ways — on the county fair board, as state association advisers, as 4-H leaders. Every one of these scenarios often involves long hours and zero paychecks. Perhaps they receive a thank-you note once in a while for the work they’ve put in, and I certainly hope they do. But more often than not, it’s a fairly thankless job, and the phone calls that come are often with complaints or “suggestions for improvement” rather than a pat on the back.

Our why Regardless of the thanks we may or may not receive, we know it takes good people to make these organizations run. Because we believe in the cause, because we know if we don’t approach the issues with the best interests of others in mind, who will? I’m so thankful to be involved in the livestock industry and for our children to be surrounded by so many examples of true servant leadership in action. Regardless of what issues may come, I’m thankful our children can see their dad do the thankless work for the right reasons. Keep doing the tough work, friends. Lots of young folks are watching and learning. And you’re appreciated by many — even if you don’t hear it often enough. As for me, I think I’ll keep Facebook off the phone for a while longer, and maybe I’ll write a handwritten thank-you note to a leader I appreciate instead.

From the Field In Passing Jerry Gliko, 75, Little Belt, Mont., passed away Feb. 10, 2019. Jerry graduated from Jerry Gliko Belt Valley High School and attended Montana State College, Bozeman to study animal science. He was then hired by the American Hereford Association as a fieldman. Eventually, he found a spot with the Western Livestock Journal, where he was actively engaged for several decades. Livestock insurance added another industry dimension to his numerous capabilities. In addition, he produced the annual Stock Growers Association Directory. Elaine Adams and Jerry were married in 1973 and moved to Billings, Mont., where sons Josh and Aron completed their family. In 2008 Jerry and Elaine moved to their present residence north of Belt. In recent years, Jerry has found strength through his church and the Knights of Columbus activities.

He is survived by his wife, Elaine; sons Josh and Aron Gliko; two brothers; three sisters; and fourteen nieces and nephews and their families. Willene Davis, 93, Coleman, Texas, passed away Feb. 12, 2019. She graduated from Willene Davis Coleman High School and then graduated from Draughns Business College in Abilene, Texas. She married Weldon Davis July 3, 1949, and she worked for Production Credit, C.M. Huckabee Insurance and Coleman ISD. She was treasurer for the First United Methodist Church in Coleman for many years and a charter member of the Dunson Class. She was also a charter member of Circle C Cattlewomen and the Texas and American Hereford Auxiliaries. Willene was an adult 4-H leader in Coleman County for many years. She is survived by her two children, Ann Guess (Jim), and Jay Davis

(Tammy); three grandchildren, Reid Guess, Haley Guess and Taylor Shorb; and four great-grandchildren. Cecil C. Jordan, 87, Dresden, Ohio, passed away Feb. 15, 2019. Born June 13, 1931, in Cecil Jordan Zanesville, Ohio, he was a son of the late Clark and Bernice (Fleegle) Jordan and was a 1949 graduate of Frazeysburg High School. Cecil retired in 1994 from Armco Steel in Zanesville after 42 years of service. He was also a lifelong farmer, and he raised polled Herford cattle. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lee (Lichtner); a son, Jeffrey Jordan; a daughter, Leanne Bell (Stan); five grandchildren, Jennifer Fick (Josh); Ryan Bell, Allison Bell, Jenna Jordan and Jaylee Jordan; one great-grandchild, Brantley Fick; and many other family members and friends.
