Looking Ahead

As you study this issue of the Hereford World, you will see that the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting was a great success. I would like to congratulate Jack Turner and Jimmy Powell for their induction into the Hereford Hall of Fame and Art Handel Jr. for being inducted into the Hereford Hall of Merit. It was great to hear the stories they told and to share in their history and their contribution to the Hereford breed during the Hereford Honoree Reception. The Hereford Youth Foundation of American awarded 23 deserving National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members with more than $140,000 in scholarships, including 10 recipients of the Vanier Family scholarships at $10,000 each. It was exciting to hear the juniors express their appreciation as they accepted their scholarships. Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) recognized their partners in the packing, food service and retail segments who have shown growth and commitment to the CHB brand over the past year. To start Friday evening’s reception, the AHA recognized the Shaw family for its leadership. As Sam retired on Saturday morning, he represented the third generation of the Shaw family to serve as AHA president. The Shaw family’s commitment to the breed and the seedstock industry is unprecedented, and I

/ December 2016

would personally like to congratulate the entire family. A big change with this year’s Annual Meeting was the addition of a trade show and the expansion of the educational forum on Friday afternoon. The breakout sessions during the forum were intended to give members an opportunity to interact with staff and industry leaders. The AHA will continue to build on these for the 2017 Annual Meeting, and I ask that you take part in the survey that has been sent out so we can identify additional topics you would like covered. To close out the weekend, the AHA had six great candidates to fill the three open Board positions, and I would like to congratulate them all. It is exciting to see the passion that members have for the position and the commitment that all of the candidates have for the breed. As strong as fiscal year 2016 was for the AHA, it is more exciting to look to the future. Plans are in place for the AHA to build on its young sire test program, to move toward a more robust genetic evaluation, to conduct a new strategic plan, to grow and expand CHB, to continue to build a marketing opportunity for documented Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle, redesign the AHA website, and to grow membership and demand for Hereford cattle. All of these, along with other

projects, are attainable for the next fiscal year and will continue to position Hereford cattle well within the commercial industry.

Bridging the gap More specifically, as the junior membership keeps growing, we need youth to understand the task and opportunity ahead of them. As the world population grows, the demand for highquality, wholesome, efficient cattle will be needed to feed this growth. The NJHA is filled with energetic, sound minds with the desire to continue to promote Hereford cattle and the entire beef industry. The NJHA has done a great job of providing a platform for youth to get involved with various parts of the industry, but our staff and Board would like to continue to bridge the gap and to build a program that will allow our youth to understand all parts of the industry. In the next few weeks, the AHA will introduce a program that will allow our junior members to send cattle to a commercial feedyard to feed and harvest these cattle. This will provide them insight on how the commercial feedlot and packing industry work. As we close out 2016, I would like to wish all of you a very blessed, merry Christmas. HW

BOARD ACTION The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 27-28. The following are highlights of the meeting:

Breed improvement The AHA Board voted to support trait development and script writing for the new genetic evaluation software, BOLT, by Theta Solutions. The Board was given an update on the peer review of the profit ($) indexes by Warren Snelling, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (MARC), and Matt Spangler, University of Nebraska. The Board asked the staff to explore the possibility of building another feed efficiency facility at a commercial feedyard.

Member service AHA staff updated the Board on the progress of requesting DNA kits through MyHerd.org and the introduction of the Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU). The TSU will allow breeders to collect DNA on much younger animals. The AHA created a relationship with Allflex for breeders to order dangle tags, EID (electronic identification) tags and TSUs. The staff also reported that a soft launch of the spreadsheet registry option on MyHerd is ongoing. Jim Mickelson moved that pending transactions in MyHerd be converted to live transactions on the members ILR2 registry

system account once the pending transactions had been pending for six months or longer. Curtis Curry seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

Dave Bielema moved that the Strategic Plan proposal with AGcellerate be approved. Terri Barber seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

Show and sale

Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®)

The Board discussed and suggested that national Hereford show judges limit discussion of division champions in order to keep the show moving at a quicker pace. Curtis Curry moved that heifer calf divisions for those born in the show year be eliminated from the owned division of the Junior National Hereford Expo. Kyle Pérez seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

CHB LLC staff reported another year of growth with more than 54 million lb. sold. Amari Manning, CHB LLC chief operating officer and general manager, introduced her new staff and shared with the Board her strategic growth plans for the next five years.

Genomics Critical, but Phenotypes Still King I have a lot to be thankful for in my life. The good Lord blessed me with a wonderful wife and two energetic kids that bring me great joy. We have made a new home in Missouri, which I have really enjoyed since moving from Colorado. I can’t believe it’s been a year working for the American Hereford Association (AHA). I’ve met so many great people in this breed and I’ve found one thing AHA members have — passion. A true testament to this was the enthusiasm during the Annual Meeting. It was a definite culmination of an exceptional year at Hereford but also a great optimism for continued growth and promise for the breed in the next years. During the educational forum, I shared some key points of the new genetic evaluation that AHA will

Hereford Foundation programs The Hereford Research Foundation board and the American Hereford Association (AHA) are excited to announce two new programs that will allow for data collection: The Founders Club — For every 10 members in the club AHA will draw a lucky winner to get a free sire test through the National Reference Sire Program. You can join for 1 year for $3,000 or make a two-year commitment for $5,000. All club members may use the “Founders Club logo” for marketing and showcasing their pride through this performance program. Contact me for more information. NJHA Fed Steer Shootout — Calling all National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members — Are you competitive? Do you want to know more about how your cattle can perform? If you’ve answered “yes,” then you’re perfect for this program. Enter a pen of three steers in the Fed Steer Shootout. Divisions will include feedlot performance, carcass performance and an overall grand champion. Stay tuned for more information and how to enter this educational program.

move to, hopefully, by late spring. One fundamental difference between the current evaluation and the new evaluation will be the change in the software platform used. Today we use a software called Breedplan, but in the new version, the software is called Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT). In short, BOLT will allow for better use of genomics. Rather than calculating molecular breeding values (MBVs) we will be able to use the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), thus taking advantage of the informative markers that affect specific traits in the genetic evaluation. Because of the computing power of BOLT, the true accuracy can be calculated on animals. Today, estimating accuracy, particularly on young animals, is tough, trying to take into account all of the factors that affect accuracy, and is simply too cumbersome for computational devices. Utilizing BOLT, all factors associated with contemporary group make-up such as number of sires, accuracy of sires and dams, size of group, etc. will be accounted for in calculation of the true accuracy — all of which will allow for a more robust evaluation. In addition, we should be able to move to more frequent evaluations that are run at least twice a month to even, possibly, weekly. This change is important to understand, as the interim model will no longer exist. Being able to include the

genomic component and phenotypes directly into the evaluation is a big advantage. Besides, interim phenotypes don’t impact sire or dam until they’re run through the evaluation, which can cause confusion from one run to the next. Also, as new discovery is made on traits that are hard to measure phenotypically, through genomic markers, they can easily be added into the evaluation more efficiently. BOLT allows for more adaptability once the research has been completed. Finally, Agriculture Business Research Institute (ABRI) will remain as our service provider. This has kept AHA from hiring additional in-house staff to run the evaluation. Plus, with the development of BOLT through script writing and trait models specific to AHA genetic evaluation, ABRI will be a more effective customer support team to AHA. Once all research is completed, we will be doing webinars on differences expected. Please look for updates in upcoming Hereford World articles and eNews. Phenotypes are still king. You don’t throw away your screwdriver and vise-grips when you get a new end wrench. Even though the genomic component is critical to advancement, breeders must still collect phenotypes. Collecting real carcass data and dry matter intake and recording accurate culling codes will only further validate that Hereford needs to be the cornerstone in commercial cow herds. HW Hereford.org

A: When you log into MyHerd.org and you don’t have owned animals or data in your to-do lists, check your browser compatibility with the recommendations below. 1) PC (Windows) — Please use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer a) Google Chrome — Download and install Google Chrome and then log into MyHerd.org.

Q: How do I register calves with multiple owners? A: Multi-owned animals can have no more than four owners. Once you have completed the calf details, please add additional owners by clicking the search tool (magnifying glass). This will prompt a box for you to search and select your multi-owner.

DNA request FAQ Q: I want to upgrade to genomicenhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs). Do I have to make another full DNA request if I already have a basic profile on that animal? A: GeneSeek can use your sample on file to give you access to GE-EPDs. To make this request, click “Other Test” for your reason and “GE-EPD Test” for the test required. Once you “Finish” and pay your “Pending Transactions,” the request will go to the lab. As soon as the American Hereford Association (AHA) receives the results, they will be processed, and a result statement will be e-mailed to you. Q: Why am I not able to make a DNA request on an animal that has a “Processing Request”? A: If a status of a DNA request doesn’t show as “Tested,” you will not be able to make a new DNA request on that animal until you have the results back. This process is in place so that we don’t get duplicate requests sent to the lab. If a test is still “Processing” and you decide you want to change or add on to your existing request, call the AHA records department and we can assist you. HW

Fear not: for, behold,

I bring you good tidings of great joy‌

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all

the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:1-14 KJV

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

CHB travels to food shows The Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) team attended nine food shows this fall to discuss the benefits of CHB with restaurant owners across the country. CHB Chief Operating Officer Amari Manning, Regional Brand Managers Ron Santoro and Sarah Samuels, and Marketing and Communications Coordinators Kaylen Baker and Katy Holdener attended these shows, hosted by distribution partners including Sysco, Kohl Wholesale, Springfield Grocers and Jake’s Finer Foods. “I really enjoyed visiting with our CHB customers at food shows this fall,” Holdener says. “Meeting with our distributors and licensees helps to better our understanding of what they are looking for from us

from a marketing standpoint, which will help our team improve our marketing strategies to better serve our customers.” While at food shows, the CHB team can hold meaningful, one-on-one conversations with future customers, which allow a greater understanding of the brand. Santoro says the opportunity to hold individual conversations with consumers creates a great advantage for the company. “When we are at food shows, the customers are on our turf,” Santoro says. “They don’t have the dayto-day distractions of their operation or employees interrupting them. The bonus is they can also try what we are sampling. Once they try our product, they are impressed with the quality of what we offer and ask even more questions.” Baker says in the end, the product sells itself. “One of the things I enjoy talking with customers about most is the 7,000 Hereford ranchers across the country that work hard to produce a healthy, safe and affordable product for consumers,” Baker says. “We are a local brand, and people love that. They like to know they are supporting their local rancher while getting a delicious product to serve to their customers.”

Driving Success, Fueling Ambition Every January livestock exhibitors flock to a place full of life, history and ambition — the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver. The NWSS is more than just a stock show. It is every livestock exhibitor’s dream — a dream to compete on a stage set like no other. The air is crisp, the mountains are tall, and the competition is fierce. The National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) is ready to parade possibly the strongest set of Hereford cattle ever to be shown at the NWSS. As incredible as the cattle may be, there is one animal this January that will be studied, awed and admired more than any other. This animal will set the pace for the NJHA in 2017 and will provide the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) the opportunity to

continue its unprecedented strides for Hereford juniors. If you have not seen this animal yet, you will need to make your way to the Rockies and take a walk up the long hill at the NWSS. In the barn you can navigate your way to Barber Ranch’s stalls. There you will find a heifer donated to HYFA whose phenotype is exceptional and whose pedigree runs as deep and rich as the passion Hereford producers possess. BR Kate Rielle 5532 ET, born Aug. 5, 2015, is sired by NJW 73S W18 Hometown 10Y ET and out of BR Gabrielle 5082. On Jan. 13, 2017, Kate Rielle will be offered in the Mile High Night Sale as Lot 1. Do not miss your opportunity to be a part of “Growing a Lasting Legacy,” a campaign by HYFA supporting Hereford youth across the country. This heifer already has a story written for her, and now it is time to let her start yours. Hereford breeders continue to support the NJHA. This past November the NJHA offered an extremely attractive choice as Lot 1 in the Bluegrass Stakes Heifer Sale in Louisville, Ky. This premium lot was sold to help raise funds for the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Louisville. The lot included the pick of the stalls at JNHE 2017. As many of you know, a good spot in the barn can make the difference between a good week and a great week — we don’t have bad weeks at JNHE. Thank you to all of the supporters of this awesome opportunity. We cannot wait to see you in Louisville next summer. This fall the NJHA board of directors wrapped up another round of selling calendar ads. With some creative thinking, our annual calendar has been revamped. The calendar ads are bigger and more vibrant and attractive, and the

calendar itself is even bigger and much more useful. This calendar is perfect for cattleman all around the country. What makes it unique is that it is an awesome advertising opportunity. For a month, thousands of livestock producers are looking at your ad. Think about how many people you can expose your operation to without having to lift a finger. Advertising can be very expensive, and although the NJHA board feels its calendar ads are affordable, you need to make every penny count. If you want to be a part of it, feel free to contact an NJHA director. We will be more than happy to walk you through the details and to set your operation up for success. Why should you want to participate in fundraising activities presented by HYFA and NJHA? Why is fundraising important? HYFA and NJHA are doing all they can to provide opportunities for the next generation of leaders within the agriculture industry and the Hereford industry specifically. These fundraisers do more than generate money. The money raised fuels dreams for higher education, careers and ambitions. Members of the NJHA are passionate and diligent to become successful in one facet or another. The money raised by the foundation heifer in Denver is used by HYFA to support leadership for and education of Hereford youth. The annual calendar allows the NJHA board to be heavily involved in leadership and communication with state associations. The money raised pays for travel expenses and ensures your junior directors can be as effective as possible during their terms. As your NJHA fundraising chair, I would like to send a sincere “thankyou” to all of those who support NJHA, HYFA and JNHE. HW Hereford.org

Energy is the Color of Red and White Every year we all come home energized from the American Hereford Association (AHA) and National Hereford Women (NHW) annual meetings in Kansas City, Mo. And this year’s meetings might be the most exciting in years. The pride that is exhibited from every breeder, junior and Association employee was dripping from every forum, meeting and event. The next phase in that pride is the energy to come home and to continue to share the message of what Hereford genetics can do for your neighbors and how great the people are that are tied to the breed.

Lot 16 NHW made the formal announcement at the AHA Annual Meeting to all breeders that it has launched a new fundraising campaign, Lot 16.

National Hereford Women OFFICERS AND COMMITTEE CHAIRS President – Jill Folkman, Ixonia, Wis. President elect – Rhonda Eck, Putnam, Okla. Vice president – Kim Herinckx, Lafayette, Ore. Secretary – Michelle Beran, Claflin, Kan. Treasurer – Karen Smith, Gatesville, Texas P.O. Box 1125, Gatesville, Texas 76528 Historian – Suzanne Matheny, Mays Lick, Ky.

This announcement has stimulated much conversation throughout the weekend on how to continually support NHW efforts. We are excited that this campaign will allow sponsorship of scholarship funds that we are currently working on. If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact Kim Herinckx at kim.herinckx@daytonmeats.com for more information.

A true Hereford leader Jane Durham, Stillwater, Okla., was recognized as the 2016 Hereford Woman of the Year. Durham’s dedication to the breed has not gone unnoticed by several generations of Hereford breeders. She has served as a member of the Oklahoma Women’s Association, in leadership positions with the Oklahoma Hereford Women and the Oklahoma Hereford Association, and later as the Chairman for the National Organization of Pollettes. She is also noted for being a key person in organizing three Junior National Hereford Expos. Rindy Willoughby Bacon said, “Jane is a constant presence at nearly every single event in Oklahoma. You just know that Jane will be there with a smile, coupled with a genuine inquiry of ‘How are you?’”

Holiday gifts Look no further than the NHW Ways and Means items for wonderful holiday gifts. We have several prints that can be framed and matted along with other Hereford branded items. Many of the items can be seen on the NHW Facebook page. If you are interested in purchasing any of the items you may have seen throughout the year, please contact Jill Folkman nhwjillfolkman@gmail.com. A wonderful stocking stuffer would be a yearly membership to the NHW. Annual dues are $20; membership forms can be found at HerefordWomen. com and can be submitted with payment to Karen Smith. Thank you to all of the Hereford breeders that have made another successful year for NHW. We look forward to continuing the success we experienced last year and creating new memories with breeders from across the country. HW

New board members Every year, the NHW seeks a slate of nominations from across the country. This year, we could not be more thrilled with the interest that we received from highly qualified candidates for board positions. The new board members are as follows: Northeast region, Amy Green Taylor of West Virginia; Southeast region, Sharon King of Mississippi; and Southwest region, Erin Lockhart of Texas.

Characteristics of a Leader I recently heard the story that department store founder J.C. Penney once filled a key executive spot in his company based on the food salting habits of those being considered for the job. As the story goes, Penney held a dinner attended by those whose names were, unbeknownst to them, on the short list for a vice president position. Penney’s advisors made a unanimous recommendation to the magnate, so when another man’s name was announced as the new vice president, the inner circle was naturally perplexed. “Why did you pass over the gentleman we recommended?” they asked. “He clearly has the most experience and the best qualifications.” “He’s not the right person for the job,” Penney said. “He put salt on his potatoes before tasting them. We need someone who isn’t so quick to judge, and who makes more carefully researched decisions.” Whether the tale is true or not, it bears a lesson. Decisions shouldn’t focus only on “qualifications”; remember to give regard to character, personal qualities and leadership behaviors.

Communication critical Garrison Wynn’s book speaks to that same topic of character and leadership qualities. In his book, titled The Real Truth About Success: What the top 1% do differently, why they won’t tell you, and how you can do it anyway!, Wynn studied 5,000 top performers over 10 years in multiple industries, including agriculture, in the areas of leadership, communication and change in order to determine what they do that makes them successful. He whittled it down to a few basic concepts for building relationships and effectively communicating across age groups.

24

/ December 2016

To start, he emphasizes “Build trust.” As an employer or manager, establishing trust is a critical component to developing a loyal and reliable employee team. Trust is built on the foundation of two things: compassion and competence. These mean demonstrating to others you have concern for their well-being while also delivering on promises and expectations.

“The number one thing on Earth that humans value is feeling valuable.” — Garrison Wynn Also high on the list is “Make people feel heard.” Wynn says if there is one thing a person can do to quickly gain trust, it is to listen to others in order to reassure them that their thoughts and opinions are being considered. For example, when proposing a change, managers can accomplish this feat by first allowing others to share their concerns. He explains that there is scientific proof that the human body chemically and physically reacts. “When someone feels listened to and heard, in that moment, the pituitary gland puts that person in an anesthetized state,” according to Wynn. Additionally, when people feel “heard,” their sense of value goes up, too. Employees who feel valued are more likely to take pride in their work and to strive to meet performance standards. “The number one thing on Earth that humans value is feeling valuable,” Wynn stresses. “People who feel

valued tend to make fewer mistakes and do a better job as employees.”

Advice for change Wynn also has some tactical advice for implementing changes. He notes that when businesses announce and implement changes, the initial reaction from employees may be fueled by fear and uncertainty. The “old way” of completing a task makes workers feel smart, and the last thing they want to hear is that the way they are comfortable with doing something is no longer valid. As Wynn explains, “No one wants to be a ‘senior beginner.’” To ease into changes, he recommends first explaining how the “new way” will be similar to the “old way,” such as with a lead-in statement like, “Let me show you how the way you have done things for so many years is going to help the new way.” Lastly, Wynn says intelligence isn’t enough to achieve success. “I wish I could tell you being smart was enough, but it is not,” Wynn says. Given that the average American I.Q. is around 100, most executives are somewhere around that mark, averaging 104, and middle managers slightly above at 115. Out of 400 billionaires in the world, only one has a geniuslevel I.Q. Thus, the true key to success, according to Wynn, is clarity. People who are successful can clearly explain what is important. They can articulate it in a way that is easy for others to understand quickly. HW

Thousands of young cattle enthusiasts have had many of their best memories through involvement in the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA). The NJHA hopes to shape young, responsible leaders, and it has done just that. Many NJHA alumni are in the industry now raising Hereford cattle, taking on impressive careers and even bringing their kids back to the Junior National Hereford Expo every summer. Follow this series to read more about just a few past NJHA members who are making a difference in the industry.

He says the experience there initially sparked his passion for giving back to the Association for all these years. “Unfortunately, I was 14 years old before I attended my first junior national,” he explains, “and that is one of the reasons why I have such passion right now for helping younger families utilize all the time they have in the junior program and get kids involved at a very young age.” In addition to the NJHA, McMillan was an active 4-H and FFA member. After much leadership experience in those organizations throughout high school, McMillan embarked on a new role — a NJHA board member. Upon graduating high school in 1993, McMillan was elected to the NJHA Board of Directors. “The junior national that year was in Perry, Ga.,” he recalls. “I remember distinctly looking up to those junior board members in maroon coats and from that time was always striving to figure out how I could get on the board.” McMillan became the chairman in 1995, the year before his final JNHE in 1996. In the meantime, McMillan’s journey as a college student was beginning at the University of Illinois, where he majored in agricultural economics. Upon graduation, he married and began

His first job was working as an agriculture chemical representative in southwest Iowa for Novartis Crop Protection. After several years, McMillan and his wife decided to move closer to family so he took a job with BASF Plant Science,

which specialized in nutritionally enhanced corn. He says the change created the perfect career because it married his interest in crops and livestock. However, after 10 years on the job and a daughter growing up quickly, McMillan desired a position that allowed more time to spend with his family. This opened the door to his current role as an area business manager with Monsanto. He says his passion for the position lies in more areas than one. “It is a great opportunity to lead a team of highly talented individuals as well as represent some of the best products and continued on page 30...

2016 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

AHA Hosts Educational Forum by Julie Mais

H

ereford breeders gathered to “Talk Hereford” Oct. 29 during the educational forum. This year the American Hereford Association (AHA) expanded the forum format to include six breakout sessions for an in-depth look into Association programs including MyHerd.org, Creative Services, Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®), Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™), social media marketing and leadership. Attendees had the opportunity to attend four of the six sessions to learn more about topics of their choice.

MyHerd.org: The Efficiency of Electronic Recording AHA Director of Records Stacy Sanders and Education and Information Service Coordinator SyAnn Foster gave an overview of MyHerd.org for nonusers and new members. Sanders said MyHerd provides efficiency through electronic recording. “This efficiency is not just what happens on the ranch or in the AHA office,” he explained. “This efficiency in the exchange between the two. By doing things electronically, we take the postal service out of the equation so both sides are not waiting on mail. And, if you are doing things through MyHerd, there’s no processing. As soon as you enter registration or transfer and there are no errors or warnings and you pay for it, it’s done.” Sanders stressed that MyHerd still provides options. “We understand not one system will fit every member’s herd management needs.” Herd software programs like CattleMax and GEM work well with MyHerd. In fact, he said, 25% of the information coming into the records department is from herd management software. In this session, Sanders also talked about the many features of MyHerd including registration, animal transfer, personal lists, artificial insemination (AI) certificate release and online bill pay. He also discussed two new features recently released: calf crop data download and DNA test requests and results. Foster shared ways MyHerd users can learn more about features. “When it was launched in 2014, the AHA wanted to make it as user-friendly as possible,” she said. “The School of MyHerd was developed and staff hosted webinars to help members learn more about MyHerd’s features.”

/ December 2016

The School of MyHerd recently transitioned to tutorials to help breeders utilize MyHerd to the fullest. “On Hereford.org you can access the tutorials at any time,” Foster said. Right now we have 23 tutorials to cover basic features.” MyHerd tutorials can be found under the “Education Center” tab and then by clicking on “School of MyHerd Tutorials.”

Creative Services: Capture an Outstanding Photo, Logo, Brochure or Catalog During this session, Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of field management and seedstock marketing, led the conversation between attendees and Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) staff, opening the door for learning how to get the most out of Creative Services projects. “It all starts with knowing your timeline,” said Caryn Vaught, HPI production manager. “Working back from your sale date or deadline and getting us the pieces in a timely manner really helps us create a superior product for our customers.” Vaught encouraged attendees to work with the Creative Services staff to create a project timeline. Graphic Designer Sean Jersett, and Editorial Designer Christy Benigno said high-resolution photos play an important role in producing standout advertisements, sale catalogs and magazine layouts. Benigno said a professional camera is the best choice for capturing photos for print design, and when breeders send in photos, e-mail is better than texting when it comes to sharing quality photos. Advertising Coordinator Alison Marx directed attention to HPI’s new media kit, which details numerous marketing options for breeders along

with the many services HPI can provide. The 2017 Media Kit can be found at Hereford.org.

Certified Hereford Beef: Excellence Built By Tradition Participants learned the reason why the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program was formed and the requirements to qualify for the program from Chief Operating Officer Amari Manning and Director of Commercial Programs Trey Befort. “CHB was created to provide a way to market the Hereford breed,” Manning said. “Creating consumer awareness of the brand ultimately creates demand for the product and, in return, creates additional value for Hereford cattle.” Befort said cattle that qualify for this U.S. Department of Agriculture certified program must first meet live animal specifications. “They then have to meet 10 carcass requirements, which ensures the customer is getting a highquality, consistent product,” Befort said. Manning said the CHB team works to market the product through food service and retail and by creating consumer awareness. “Our goal is to have a food service distributor and retail in the same market so when someone has a great eating experience and wants to recreate that at home, they can go to their grocery store to purchase CHB,” Manning said. In fiscal year 2016, 54.8 million lb. of CHB product was sold — a 7% increase from the previous year. Befort said as CHB demand continues to grow, the importance of raising high-quality animals will continue to grow. “Hereford breeders have done a great job of growing the breed and fixing problems,” he said. But Befort challenged breeders to get more involved in the brand. Hereford.org


For seedstock producers, customer service and communicating with customers are key, Befort said. “If they have a group selling, offer some ideas of people interested in buying Hereford and Hereford-influenced cattle.” Befort also shared about The Hereford Advantage feeder calf program, which identifies groups of cattle out of superior genetics. More information can be found at Hereford.org.

Whole Herd TPR Genetic Evaluation Updates: What You Need to Know AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell discussed the implementation of new genetic evaluation updates and provided a roadmap for the future of the Hereford breed. “A lot has changed in a fairly young and new genomic era,” Bedwell said. “It’s only 5-6 years old, and there’s a great horizon still out there.” It’s the Association’s responsibility to collect genomic information, and Bedwell shared that the AHA has more than 28,000 genotypes. To keep up with progress, Bedwell said the Association needs to stay updated. This need led the Association to begin moving to the new genetic evaluation software, BOLT. Bedwell outlined advantages of the new software. He said BOLT will create a more robust evaluation. It increases efficiency due to automated data extracts and runs and will have a more streamlined process. This software also allows for more frequent evaluations and the possibility of weekly or biweekly evaluations. “BOLT offers adaptability of adding new traits,” Bedwell said. “The sky is the limit as DNA marker research continues.” Bedwell also said Agricultural Business Research Institute (ABRI) will stay as the provider. This arrangement will have mutual efficiency benefits like increased diagnostic and customer support and saving AHA costs for additional staff. “Genotypes are a valuable tool, and we need to continue to capture more genotypes,” Bedwell said. “However, phenotypes still drive the bus and will continue to be important. What are now hard-tomeasure phenotypes can now have Hereford.org

Hereford breeders had the opportunity to attend four of six breakout sessions at the educational forum during the AHA Annual Meeting.

markers developed to give us a better idea of how to progress.” He shared that the goal implementation date is late spring 2017. Look for updates in upcoming Hereford World issues.

Social Media Marketing: Navigating a Social World In this session, AHA Marketing and Communications Coordinators Kaylen Baker and Katy Holdener gave breeders tips on how to take social media marketing to the next level. When compared to a website, social media can help businesses connect on a personal level. “Branding is everything,” Baker said. And social media can be a tool in branding a business. The first step in utilizing social media is to create goals via audience. For those using Facebook, analytics can be helpful. “It’s important to create engaging content people want to see,” she said. To create engaging content on Facebook, Baker said sharing photos and videos increases engagement by 80%. Holdener said video is up and coming, but it’s important to keep videos at 60 to 90 seconds in length. Once content is decided, it’s time to share information. Noting cattlemen are not always near a computer, Holdener suggested scheduling posts. “This is a great tool to keep up with social media for those who are traveling or will be away from a computer or smart phone,” she said. Instagram, a photography-based platform, is popular with the millennial group. “This platform is a great way to reach a young audience,” Baker said. Holdener said it’s important to take high-quality, relatable photos. “Use hashtags as keywords in captions, and engage with others by liking posts,” she said. When setting up an Instagram

account for a business, Holdener suggested choosing a name as close to the business name as possible. Baker and Holdener also discussed Twitter with the group. “This platform is a great way to start a conversation,” Holdener said. Because of a 140-character limit, Holdener said sharing photos is a great way to share more information within a post.

New Heights in Leadership Hereford breeders heard from Kelly Barnes, Norman, Okla., who led an inspiring and entertaining discussion on the difference between being “in” an organization and being “involved.” Barnes grew up on a family farm in eastern Oklahoma and is a past Oklahoma FFA president. He questioned the audience about why they are a part of the Hereford breed and cattle industry. “Whatever the reason you’re a part of this industry, what we have in common is that we are involved,” he said. With group participation, he asked another question to younger participants and then to the older, “What are some things you see the other generation doing that is hurting them on a big scale?” Upon hearing the answers, Barnes gave three tips to bridge the gap. First, be present. “Be here and be now,” he said. “The most important thing you can learn is about one another.” Second, appreciate the little things. Third, pack an extra sandwich, referring to a story of a young boy who asked his mom to pack him an extra sandwich for school trips to share with a classmate who goes without. “Let’s not forget to help others out and do good for goodness sake,” he said. “In our life people will remember one of two things — what you did to them and what you did for them.” HW

Barber Elected AHA President T

erri Barber, Channing, Texas, was announced as the new president of the American Hereford Association (AHA) during the Annual Membership Meeting Oct. 28 in Kansas City, Mo. Terri has been involved in the Hereford business since birth. Her family owns and operates Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas. “Serving as our AHA president is a prestigious honor that both humbles and inspires me to serve our membership in the most effective and enlightened way possible,” Terri says. “One of the most rewarding opportunities all members of AHA can experience is serving your membership on the Board of Directors. There’s no better way to learn, grow and contribute to the all-important decision making processes that have and will continue to make our breed prosperous. Special thanks to those who invested your confidence and trust in my leadership when being elected to the Board in 2013 as well as your president this year.” Founded in 1904, Barber Ranch was a 2004 honoree of the Texas Family

Herefords have been the mainstay of the Barber program since the beginning, with the herd currently consisting of 350 registered females. Terri says as president, she plans to continue to focus on programs that will help Hereford breeders produce genetics that will benefit from economically relevant traits highly sought in all industry segments. “Our priority in genotyping to identify genetics that can build profitability will remain center plate as well as providing our staff and allied

leaders the resources to maintain efficiency of member services,” Terri says. “Marketing value-based programs will also be a key component to ensuring Herefords are committed to industry demands whereby growing our Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) brand. Equally important will be supporting our junior members, Hereford Youth Foundation of America and National Hereford Women affiliates and their unparalleled growth in ensuring the next generation stays committed and successful.” The Barber family uses extensive artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) in their efforts to offer customers the best genetics available. They host an annual bull sale in November in San Saba — the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Show heifer and donor prospects are sold in special sales in the spring and fall. To increase marketing efforts, the Barbers also exhibit at the national shows.

She has also served as Elanco’s branded beef marketing associate and has worked directly with premier branded programs in the U.S. “Every single person involved in our present state of success should be commended and thanked for their contributions in this monumental state of achievements in the Hereford breed,” Terri says. “While we continue our growth and enviable positioning within the beef industry we cannot lose sight of the dynamic efforts we have taken to position us where we are today nor shall we become complacent. Our breed is in what I would term as the best it’s ever been in my lifetime.

Joel Birdwell Hereford breeder Joel Birdwell, Kingfisher, Okla., grew up on a ranch in southwest Oklahoma, where his family homesteaded Joel Birdwell 114 years ago. “I want to be sure that we continue to be forward thinking in terms of advancing and strengthening our breed and Association,” Birdwell says. Joel raised and showed Hereford cattle in his youth and was involved in the state and national junior Hereford programs. He attended Oklahoma State University (OSU) and was a member of the 1995 livestock judging team. Upon graduation, Joel was hired by OSU to manage its purebred beef cattle herd, which consisted of 500 purebred cows and five breeds. He was responsible for managing the artificial AI and ET programs, the student workforce, and the annual production sale. In 2002 Joel and his wife, Bridget, moved to Kingfisher to help expand Bridget’s family’s farming and cattle operation. They run approximately 2,000 head of stocker cattle annually that graze winter wheat. They also have more than 400 commercial cows and utilize a three-breed cross breeding rotation of Hereford, Angus and Charolais genetics. Joel partners with his father on 300 registered Hereford and Angus cows, which are on the family ranch in Fletcher, Okla. They utilize AI and calve both in the spring and the fall. continued on page 38... Retiring AHA Directors were thanked for their four years of service with the presentation of bronze bull statues.

2016 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Approximately 100 head of bulls and females are marketed through their production sale hosted in February as well as through private treaty. Joel’s focus is to raise bulls and females that excel in the economically important traits — calving ease, marbling, fertility, fleshing ability and rapid growth to a moderate mature size. Joel has also followed in his father’s footsteps and has been growing his purebred auction business for the past 10 years. He is a member of the Oklahoma Hereford Association and has served as a voting delegate for the AHA Annual Meeting. Joel is also involved in the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association as district director and the American Quarter Horse Association and is president of the Kingfisher County Cattlemen’s Association. In his community, Joel is a member of the First Baptist Church and is on the grounds and property committee. Joel and his wife have three sons, Jarret, 14, Judson, 12, and Jhett, 9.

Tommy Mead Involved in the Hereford business since his youth, Tommy Mead and his wife, Valarie, own and operate Mead Cattle Enterprises in Tommy Mead Midville, Ga. “With the rapid increase in the use of genomic testing, I think the Association must continue to be on the forefront to improve the breed and to offer customers the best information available,” Mead says. Tommy purchased his first registered Hereford in 1977, and at the age of 12, Tommy began showing Herefords in 4-H. Although he has always lived in Burke County, he has a broad base of experience managing complex issues in both large and small operations. Tommy manages the day-to-day operation of Mead Cattle Enterprises. Mead Cattle consists of a base herd of 250 registered Hereford cattle, and it produces an additional 150 ET calves each year. Tommy manages a vigorous ET program that flushes every five

Tommy has served on the boards for the Burke and Jefferson County Cattlemen’s Associations and the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association, and is a 4-H advisor and consultant. Tommy and Valarie have four children, Tommie Lynne Mead, C.W. Walker, Katelyn Walker and Jackson Walker.

Bruce Thomas Montana Hereford breeder Bruce Thomas has been involved in the Hereford industry since birth. Bruce and his wife, Bruce Thomas Tammy; son, Kurt and his wife, Jessica; and his parents, Richard and Shirley, manage Thomas Herefords, Gold Creek, Mont. “As a Board member, one of my goals is to enhance the market share for Hereford cattle,” Thomas says. “One of those avenues is through the continued growth of the CHB program.” Bruce’s parents began their registered Hereford operation in 1957 and brought Bruce up in the business. In the late 1970s, Bruce started

Thomas Custom Fitting, in which he fed, fit and showed Hereford cattle across the United States, culminating with winning grand champion horned female at the 1984 National Western Stock Show. As his family began to grow, Bruce dissolved this business to be home with his family. He then started a 25-year career in the timber and sawmill industry while helping with the day-to-day responsibilities of the ranch. During this time, Bruce had numerous responsibilities including being in charge of ranch sales, managing the operation’s human resources and ensuring the safety of 150 employees. In the 1970s Thomas Herefords began to use AI, but the ranch became aggressive in using this technology in the 1990s when the Thomases also started to utilize expected progeny differences (EPDs). Today Thomas Herefords maintains 250 head of registered Hereford cows and markets cattle private treaty throughout the United States and other countries. The ranch sells 75 bulls and more than 50 head of females annually. Its partnership with Accelerated Genetics has provided an opportunity for domestic and international semen sales. The focus of Thomas Herefords is to develop cattle to meet the needs of commercial customers by producing sound, efficient cattle that can excel in all segments of the beef industry. Bruce is a member of the Montana Hereford Association and has served numerous terms on the board of directors and held various officer positions including treasurer for the 2016 Montana Hereford Association Tour. He has also served as an advisor for the Montana Junior Hereford Association. Currently, Bruce is vice chairman of the Watershed Restoration Coalition of the Upper Clark Fork River and is on the Powell County Planning Board. He is also a member of the Montana Stockgrowers Association and Clark Fork City Church. Bruce and Tammy have three children — Kurt and his wife Jessica, Amber and her husband Travis, and Heather and her husband Ben — and five grandchildren. HW

Huff Family Honored as Century Breeder L

eRoy Huff of Huff’s Polled Herefords, Rutledge, Mo., was honored as a Century Breeder Oct. 28 at the 2016 American Hereford Association (AHA) Hereford Honoree Reception in Kansas City, Mo. The Century Breeder award recognizes Hereford breeders who have stood the test of time and have been dedicated to raising Herefords for 100 years. The Huff herd began when LeRoy’s grandparents were married and gifted four Hereford cows and a bull. The original herd consisted of horned genetics, but later moved to polled lines from Ernest Clarkson in 1957. Since 1915, no other breed has walked onto the original homestead. Huff has served as an exhibitor, judge, junior advisor and more throughout his tenure with the Hereford breed. “The Century Breeder award represents a tremendous milestone,”

says Shane Bedwell, AHA director of breed improvement and chief operating officer. “The longevity and

dedication Huff’s Polled Herefords has displayed is truly amazing.” HW

Jack Turner A third-generation Hereford breeder, Jack Turner has been a long-time friend and supporter of the AHA. Turner of Turner Bros. Herefords started his Hereford herd after graduating from the University of Oklahoma with the basic principles of keeping an eye on birth weight and keeping mature size in check while emphasizing as much end product merit as possible. Jack believes in line breeding and is always looking at ways to better identify good genetics within his herd. Jack focused on his customers and the largest customer he had for many years was Matador Cattle Co. He bred the famed L617 bull that was used in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) carcass merit project, which led to the first tenderness expected progeny difference (EPD) in the Hereford breed, and is still the basis for the current genetic markers for tenderness. Jack serves on the Hereford Research Foundation board and has helped guide the AHA by identifying the research projects the Association should be involved with. He supports AHA research projects financially and with genetics. Jack was inducted into the Hereford Hall of Fame on his 88th birthday.

It’s the Life in Your Years Taylor Belle Matheny, 2015-16 National Hereford Queen, reflects on a year representing the breed.

A

year ago I embarked on a journey that allowed me to travel the country, to represent the Hereford breed and to meet people from all facets of the agriculture industry. When I was crowned National Hereford Queen in Kansas City, Mo., last year, I was so excited to have the opportunity to represent the breed that I love so much, but I was unaware of how deeply rewarding this honor would be. I am Taylor Belle Matheny, a fifth-generation Hereford breeder from Mays Lick, Ky. I am currently a sophomore at Kansas State University, majoring in animal sciences and agricultural communications.

Hereford.org

As a little girl, I would find pictures of my mom serving as the 1988 National Polled Hereford Queen and set a goal to one day follow in her footsteps. Traveling to shows and seeing the National Hereford Queen during my childhood only fueled my dream to one day serve in that capacity. On Nov. 1, 2015, my mom and I became the first mother and daughter duo to serve as National Hereford Queen. On that day I started a journey that would inspire me, grow my leadership skills and help me learn about and represent the breed of cattle that means so much to me. The white outfit has been an icon in the Hereford breed and continues to be known throughout the beef industry. The first show that I attended as National Hereford Queen was in my home state at the North American International Livestock Exposition. The green shavings in Louisville stained my white boots, but it was the first time I got to be in the outfit that I had dreamed of one day wearing. It is hard to believe that this past year went so fast. Each time I put on the crown and sash I was reminded how lucky I was to have grown up in the Hereford breed. At the JNHE I hosted a couple of events that will have a lasting effect on me. The Hereford breed is comprised of members who have compassion for one another. For my National Queen Service Project, Kiss the Cow 4 Nathan, junior and senior breeders came together and raised $17,000 to benefit Nathan Largent, a junior member

battling cancer. The Queen’s Tea was a tremendous success. The highlight of that week was meeting young ladies from across the country who will someday represent our breed. Throughout my reign, I met breeders and youth from all over the nation. Hereford breeders were eager to welcome and to help me in any way possible. The queen program has a bright future. To any girl who is considering running for state or national queen, I encourage her to do so. This has been one of the most rewarding years of my life and has allowed me to grow in so many ways. This journey has put me in the spotlight countless times, but it couldn’t have been possible without a very special team. My family was there to support me and to help make this dream come true. The staff at the American Hereford Association was has been great to work with. The National Hereford Women was also an integral part of my success. Its continued support is greatly appreciated. Hereford breeders made me feel welcome and appreciated. Whether it was a smile or a helping hand, I always knew that it was a team effort in a family atmosphere. Abraham Lincoln once said, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” This past year has been one of the most rewarding and fulfilling I have experienced. From the bottom of my heart I thank each and every person that I met along the way for making this year so special. While this chapter in my life is over, I look forward to my future in the Hereford breed. — Taylor Belle Matheny 2015-16 National Hereford Queen

2016 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

More Than a Crown and Sash Annah Dobson has high aspirations for her year as National Hereford Queen. by Kayla M. Wilkins

T

ears welled up in her grandfather’s eyes and the excitement from her family was contagious as Annah Dobson, Johnson Creek, Wis., daughter of Roger and Rachelanne Dobson, was crowned the 2016-17 National Hereford Queen Oct. 30 at the American Royal National Hereford Show in Kansas City, Mo. Although appearing calm to most, Dobson recalls her heart almost beating out of her chest as she awaited the announcement. In that moment, all her hard work and dedication to the Hereford breed paid off in a big way. “That just meant the world to me, because not only did I know I made my family proud,” she says, “but I made the state of Wisconsin proud, and I did something that I’ve always dreamed about.” Dobson knew on that day she was soon to embark on a journey she would never forget. She has always looked up to the national queen, and she says it seems surreal she is now stepping into those shoes. “I’ve always seen her as a figure that’s more than just someone that

stands in the backdrops and walks in classes,” she explains.

The Hereford bug At the ripe age of 8, Dobson knew her passion was in the cattle barn. That year her grandparents, owners of GariAlan Farm, first introduced her to the Hereford scene with a show steer, and the excitement for the cattle industry grew rapidly. “My grandfather gave me my first Hereford steer when I was in third grade,” she says. “I showed and I absolutely loved it. From then on I caught the Hereford bug.” She soon found herself purchasing cows on her own and spending her

summers at the end of a show halter. In addition to her love growing for the breed, it also spread like wildfire through her family. Dobson said, much like other Hereford families, her family spends its vacations at cattle shows now and her brother even showed at his first junior national this summer. “Sharing this love of Hereford cattle not only with my grandparents and my uncle, but with my brother and my parents is something that means a lot to me. This is something I want to do for the rest of my life,” she says. Dobson’s enthusiasm for Herefords didn’t stop with the cattle alone. She says the opportunity to work with veterans in the industry, as well as young showmen, has been rewarding in itself. She is thankful each day for the investment the Hereford family has made in her life, and because of that, her investment in the industry didn’t end in the showring. Her name can be seen on rosters for the state junior board, in the books as a past princess and, most recently, as state queen last year. She says she attributes much of her success to her family. “Without them I wouldn’t be able to do the things I’ve done,” Dobson explains. “They’ve done so much for me and have taught me so many things Hereford.org


with hard work and communication and leadership. They’re always there for me no matter what.”

Road to the crown While she served as a princess in her state association, Dobson recalls some vital role models that paved her journey to being the national queen. Nikki Folkman was the state queen during her first year as princess, and Dobson vividly remembers looking up to the influence Folkman had on not only herself but also other young girls across the nation. Dobson always loved the idea of running for national queen someday but never dreamed it would indeed happen. After much encouragement from Folkman, her state advisor and family, Dobson prepared to take a chance to pursue her dreams. “I looked up to those girls in the white,” she says. “They’ve been role models to me. Now it’s my turn to be a role model for someone else. That is just the greatest feeling ever.” Dobson says even with the application and interview, the road to the crown was very rewarding in numerous ways. Being an inherently outgoing young lady, it was no surprise that meeting people and hearing everyone’s stories was a highlight for her. “I like to hear everybody else’s stories,” she explains, “because Herefords have impacted me. I know I’m not the only one with a unique story and that’s why I like hearing everybody else’s. That is something that I really took away from being with them in Kansas City.” In fact, her week in its entirety was full of experiences that confirmed her desire to play an integral part in the junior association in the coming year. “The people in the American Hereford Association (AHA),” she explains, “whether it’s in our state or across the nation, are some of the most supporting loving people out there. This breed has the best people around. I can’t say or stress that enough because it’s been an amazing opportunity and I’ve not even been queen for a week.”

Hereford.org

Making a mark The freshman agricultural marketing and communications major from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls knows her long-term goals are to raise Hereford cattle with her family and to be an advocate for the industry. Coincidentally, she says her new role as queen aligns perfectly. “My goal is to get people to understand the livestock industry and explain to them, not only what I do and what it means to be the national queen, but what it means to be a part of the AHA,” she says. “That’s something that really means a lot to me. I want to break the stereotype, and go out there and put a new twist on what it means to be the national queen. That’s something I’m very excited to do.” Dobson adds that while she has grown up in the industry and does know a fair amount about Hereford cattle, she is always eager to learn more and to grow as an advocate. Her experiences already have proven that this year will come not only with the opportunity to teach others and to be a role model but also with the opportunity to learn and to grow as an individual. “I have learned so much about the Hereford breed,” she explains. “I feel like I know so much more than I did before even this week. Regardless of the competition aspect, I would have been so thrilled to know all the information and have met the people that I met along the way.”

Taylor Belle Matheny crowns Dobson as the National Hereford Queen at the 2016 American Royal in Kansas City, Mo.

The opportunities with which she has been presented are only the tip of the iceberg of what is to come for Dobson this year. As a matter of fact, it has been a mainstay on her bucket list to attend all the national shows, and in this role, she will get to mark that experience off the list. By her attendance, she hopes to strike individuals as more than a pretty face at the backdrop. She aspires to serve as a face of the industry and, most importantly, as a role model to youth stepping into the showring. “My parents have helped put goals and dreams in my life and that has made my life so much better,” she says. “If I can make that impact in one girl — to give her hope, to give her dreams, to give her the idea that maybe what she wants to do isn’t so silly because I did it, that would make me the happiest person ever. I want someone else to have the opportunities that I have thus far and do the things that I’ve done because of how much it’s impacted my life.” HW

Making a Living by Giving BioZyme Inc. owners, Bob and Lisa Norton, desire to serve and to give to Hereford youth. by Katie Roberti

F

or many years, BioZyme Inc. has been supporting young people interested in production agriculture as well as youth raising and showing livestock around the world. Hereford youth are no exception. It’s now been a decade since BioZyme Inc. became the title sponsor of the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). The National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) and VitaFerm® work together to enrich the lives of Hereford youth and JNHE participants, but there are two humble people primarily responsible for this unique partnership. Bob Norton, BioZyme Inc. president, and his wife, Lisa, the company’s vice president, have built the foundation for this relationship out of their commitment, generosity and service to Hereford youth.

Perfect partnership The Nortons partnership with the NJHA goes back beyond the 10 years that the VitaFerm banner has hung in JNHE show rings. This partnership is the product of a special relationship that was built more than 25 years ago.

58

/ December 2016

and I believe “inBobgiving and the

feeling you get back. — Lisa Norton

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Bob was working in the meatpacking business when he met Hop Dickenson, the American Hereford Association (AHA) executive vice president at the time, and Craig Huffhines, former AHA executive vice president who was in the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) director of feedlot and carcass programs role at the time. The two were looking for a place to process CHB. This introduction would lead to big things for future Hereford youth.

Years later, after Bob returned to St. Joseph, Mo., he reengaged with Huffhines to talk about possible opportunities to be involved in supporting young people. The partnership came as a result of contact and context, Bob says. Since its beginnings, Bob’s support and service to the organization has only continued to grow. While he was at the forefront of the partnership with the NJHA, Lisa is responsible for much of the development as well. “I may have started it,” Bob says, “but Lisa took the reins and has a huge hand in what we experience today.” She has a background in education, and Lisa saw the JNHE as a perfect place for educating youth after she attended the JNHE for the first time in 2008. Since then, Lisa has focused on ramping up the program with sponsorship and educational opportunities. The SureChamp wheel, which gives juniors a chance to test their animal science knowledge, was added to VitaFerm’s booth at the 2010 JNHE as one product of Lisa’s vision. “After attending and seeing the amazingness of JNHE you feel like part of the family,” Lisa says. “I see Hereford.org


it beyond supporting. It’s being a contributing member of the family.” Bob also feels this sense of family. The Nortons say they have built a great relationship with the Hereford family, and this relationship is not done growing. In September, BioZyme Inc. took its sponsorship to the next level as the Nortons joined forces with AHA and HYFA to launch the “Feed the Future” program. Through “Feed the Future,” BioZyme Inc. will contribute $1 to HYFA for every bag or tub of eligible BioZyme supplement bought by AHA members through 2017. “This program is another way for our company to support the organization on an ongoing basis,” Lisa says. The Nortons hope the outcome of this program will exceed their expectations. Additionally, they believe it is a good model, as it will continue to help more and more people. Through doing programs such as “Feed the Future,” with the AHA and the HYFA, Bob says he and Lisa have also gotten to know people and to make connections that have developed into long-term relationships they value. But stronger than the depth and scope of these relationships that have continued to grow is Bob and Lisa’s desire and drive to raise, protect, teach and educate youth. “When it comes to young people, they reach a point in their lives when they recognize how very special they are,” Bob says. Making the decision to support and give to youth isn’t something he nor Lisa has to think about or to consider. Ultimately it is just who the Nortons are. They believe giving is just a form of serving. “It’s who we are because we had somebody who taught us these same things and most of the time we get taught by example, by sharing, caring and loving,” Bob says. “Bob and I believe in giving and the feeling you get back,” Lisa says. Two years ago Bob was able to start serving in a new way when

Hereford.org

he became a director on the HYFA board. “I was grateful that I was given this opportunity to serve with a great group of people. People that understand that wealth doesn’t come from your wallet, but wealth comes from your heart,” Bob says. “And the ability you have to give back and to pay it forward… and I can’t think of any better place to do that than with young people.”

Lifestyle of giving Bob and Lisa believe it is important to support this lifestyle and the sustainability of this lifestyle because kids learn from being involved in agriculture. Being able to watch young people grow without even recognizing it amazes Bob and Lisa and is one of their favorite parts of giving to youth programs. “They are our legacy, you know, and one of the joys of being involved with this organization, again, is watching these young people grow up and watching them do the same things that we’re doing and having the same opportunities,” Bob says. The couple say they are fortunate and proud to receive hundreds of thank you notes from youth each year. The joy and good feelings the Nortons get from these notes amazes them. One particular note they received illustrated exactly why they give.

To kick off the Feed the Future program, a pallet of VitaFerm Concept•Aid® mineral was auctioned off at The Harvest II event Aug. 27 in Sonoma, Calif.

T.R. Putz, a young NJHA member from Iowa, wrote thanking the Nortons for supporting youth. In addition to thanking Bob and Lisa, T.R. wrote in the note that he had a steer and then he explained the process of raising the animal. From putting the halter on to taking him to the washrack for the first time, it continued on page 60...

The SureChamp wheel at JNHE gives juniors a chance to test their animal science knowledge.

was evident T.R. had spent many hours with his steer. T.R. told the Nortons that he would be selling his steer at a fair soon and that all the funds would go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. In response to selling his steer. T.R. wrote, “I will be very sad, but proud.” This is the type of learning that makes it all worth it for Bob and Lisa. “This young man is figuring it out,” Bob says. “It’s amazing for us to see this happening and learning at their age the importance of life. When we see people like T.R. recognize it, that’s what it is all about.” There are many lessons to be learned in life which Bob believes these youth learn in the showring. They learn about life, relationships and friends. They learn about losing and winning. And in addition to learning lessons, they are gaining values along the way. “Our country is at a crossroads — things have changed, values have changed,” Bob says. “The values young people gain from being involved in production agriculture, and organizations such as junior programs are very important.” Youth with backgrounds in agriculture quite possibly learn these lessons and values a little earlier in life because of events like the JNHE, and that is why Bob and Lisa continue to support and give to them. “Our Lord was here to serve us and he gave to serve us,” Bob says. “Giving is just a form of serving.” There is no way to know how many lives the Nortons have influenced by giving and serving in so many ways, not just to Hereford youth but the entire livestock industry. The “Feed the Future” program is just one more way Bob and Lisa will give and continue to do what makes them happy while being an example for all. “What provides great joy to our hearts and our spirits is serving,” Bob says. “Just like T.R. Putz has learned.” HW

Herefords Heading to Denver

Plan now to attend Hereford activities during the 2017 National Western Stock Show in Denver Jan. 12-14.

H

ereford exhibitors, breeders and enthusiasts will make their way to Denver Jan. 12-14 for the National Western Stock Show (NWSS). Hereford events in Denver will begin with the National Hereford Bull Show in the Stadium Arena on the Hill at 8 a.m., Thursday, Jan. 12, followed by the junior heifer show at noon.

Mile High Night Friday’s highlights begin in the Yards with the pen and carload show at 8 a.m. The Mile High Night National Hereford Sale on Friday evening promises to be

another great event, featuring 33 lots from consignors across the U.S. “This incredible event has grown into an exhibition among all breeds at the NWSS,” says Joe Rickabaugh, American Hereford Association (AHA) director of field management and seedstock marketing. “A great deal of this event’s success stems from the foundation established by Eddie and Ruth Sims, National Cattle Services Inc., Elgin, Okla., since 2003. The late Stanley Stout assisted with this sale from 2003 to 2006. This event would not be what it is without all the volunteers who turn

the Denver stadium floor into a sale spectacle on Friday afternoon.” Kicking off the Mile High Night National Hereford Sale that evening will be Lot 1, BR Kate Rielle 5532 ET, a female donated by Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas. All proceeds will go to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) “Growing a Lasting Legacy” campaign to ensure the sustainability of future Junior National Hereford Expos (JNHE) and leadership events for generations to come.


“A big thank-you goes to the Barber family for selecting one of their best heifers to highlight the Mile High Night Sale,” says Amy Cowan, AHA director of youth and foundation. Kate Rielle (registration no. 43675990) is an Aug. 5, 2015, daughter of NJW 73S W18 Hometown 10Y ET and out of BR Gabrielle 5082 by BR Lansing 3060. “We are proud to be donating this year’s foundation female,” says Terri Barber of Barber Ranch. “Kate Rielle is out of our Gabrielle foundation female and out of the acclaimed Hometown bull, so she’s the best of both genetics that we’ve ever offered and we’re very proud to be supporting HYFA by donating her.”

National Hereford Show Hereford events conclude Saturday morning, Jan. 14, with the National Hereford Female Show in the Stadium Arena on the Hill at 8 a.m. Judging the National Hereford Show on the Hill will be Bill Conley, Clarksdale, Mo., along with associate judge Kyle Conley, Sulphur, Okla. Pen and carload show judges are Dale Micheli, Ft. Bridger, Wyo.; Ryan Rathmann, Stanton, Texas; and Travis Pembrook, Fairview, Okla. Evaluating the junior show is Brandon Callis, Minco, Okla. For those unable to attend the NWSS, you can find Hereford show results online at Hereford.org.

Plan to visit the Hereford General Store and Lounge Stop in to mingle with Hereford breeders and take some time to shop the latest Hereford apparel and goods at the Hereford General Store and Lounge this year at the NWSS. Sponsored by Hereford breeders, the General Store and Lounge will be on the third floor of the Exchange Building and open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday Jan. 11, through Thursday Jan. 12, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13.

Joe Rickabaugh Office 816-218-2280 • Cell 785-633-3188 jrick@hereford.org

Dear Hereford Breeders, Welcome to the 111th National Western Stock Show and the “Mile High Night” National Hereford Sale. The powerful showing of Herefords on the Hill and in the Yards has captured the attention of many cattlemen regardless of their breed loyalty. Last year the talk of Denver was the “Mile High Night Sale” hosted on the stadium floor. It was a spectacle to behold. The cover of the 2017 Mile High Night sale catalog captures a view of last year’s incredible event. The Mile High Night sale offers a superior selection of genetics from the top Hereford operations in North America and features a stout offering of bulls. A concerted effort has been set forth again this year to offer a set of bulls that can not only headline many programs but will also supply these breeders a genetically superior bull to walk the pasture after an AI program. Bulls from past Denver sales have made their mark in the Hereford industry. If you are considering a top Hereford bull for your operation please take some time and review the bulls in this sale-they are a stellar set. These handpicked females have traditionally been elite, offering some of the best genetics to be found in the Hereford business. Again sale management has reached out to gather more outstanding females for the sale this year. The “Mile High Night” affair offers females from the top operations across the country and it will feature "pick of the herds" with breed leading genetics. The sale will be hosted following the pen and carload show on Friday afternoon. Sale management has the privilege of adding lots to the sale selected from all the Hereford entries that show or display in Denver. Combine this with the outstanding consignments in this sale catalog and the “Mile High Night” promises to be an event for all serious Hereford breeders. We want to thank Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas for donating the Lot 1 Foundation Female — to this year's sale. Lot 1 is a powerful female that has the genetics to be a leading donor for many Hereford operations. She is one great female. Many thanks go to the consignors to the 2017 Mile High Night Sale. They are bringing the good ones to the 2017 National Western. I also want to thank the many Hereford volunteers, National Western staff and the Express Ranch crew for turning the stadium floor into the great National Hereford Sale venue. We would like to invite Hereford breeders from across North America to join us for this great Hereford evening. The sale starts at 6:30 p.m. (MST) with plenty seats on the stadium floor. The sale cattle will be on display one hour before the sale directly behind the salering. Make your way around the carousels to view some of the best Hereford genetics to sell in 2017. We look forward to seeing you in Denver. If you can’t make it to Denver the sale will be broadcast on LiveAuctions.tv. Feel free to contact us to answer any questions or provide additional information. All the best, American Hereford Association Joe Rickabaugh

• Bred in the purple, Kate Rielle is a direct daughter of Gabrielle 5082, the all-time most prominent foundation female at Barber Ranch and a 2-time NWSS Champion and Supreme. Her real contribution to the breed is her ability to produce maternal daughters who have exceptional udders with plenty of milk. Her progeny have that rare look everyone tries to raise and they pass it on to the next generation. Numerous females out of Gabrielle daughters have topped Barber’s sales, including the 2015 NWSS Champion, Anastasia. You will not find a more consistent, top quality producer than a Gabrielle daughter and Kate Rielle combines Gabrielle with NWSS champion Hometown. • Selling half interest and no possession. Barber Ranch will also pay show expenses.

• It is an honor to be returning to the Mile High Night sale again and we aren’t holding anything back! Paradise may be the best heifer we have ever raised and has been a standout since day one. She is stout yet feminine with a big foot, sweeping rib and a pretty front. Paradise is a full sister to our pick of the pen in last year’s Mile High Night sale, purchased by Harvie Ranching and Blairs.Ag. She has gone on to be a successful addition to their show string, being the 2016 Canadian Hereford Bonanza Reserve Overall Female. We think enough of this heifer to have entered her in the Hill show Saturday morning for the new owner. You are going to want this little piece of Paradise!

• "Karly" is my foundation Hereford female that my family purchased for me to start my National Junior Hereford Association membership with from the Hoffman Ranch. I showed her for two years as a senior calf and senior yearling. She is an own daughter of the tremendous donor, HH Miss Advance 5139 ET, owned by Sierra Ranches and Holden Herefords, who has produced over $1 million in progeny sales. Her first natural calf, sired by Hometown, was a many time champion for me and went onto be named 2016 Black Hills Stock Show Supreme Champion Bull. This was the first Hereford to ever win this honor. He sold through the sale to George Ochsner & Sons for $20,500. After three more successful flushes and a spring 2016 natural bull calf, Karly looks to continue her dam's phenomenal production.

24 Mile High Night • National Western Stock Show

• Undoubtedly one of the best bulls Perks Ranch has ever raised and it is only fitting that he sells in the same place where his sire’s fame started! His sire, Perks 0003 Easy Money 4003 ET, sold in the 2015 Mile High Night sale for $86,000 and has since become well over $100,000 due to semen sales. Easy Money created quite a stir in 2015 and we think Rio will in 2017. Like his sire, Rio is super stout with a tremendous hip, tons of bone, body and thickness and combines it with a cool look. Added to this package, Rio is out of the famous 172P cow that is a cornerstone female at Perks Ranch. 172P has produced over $190,000 in progeny sales and has 12 bulls and numerous females already working in renowned herds in the Hereford breed, as well as one herd bull and 11 daughters here at the ranch. 172P has been extremely fertile and has clicked with every sire she has been mated to. Rio's full sister was recently named Reserve Spring Heifer Calf Champion in Kansas City. The guesswork is done; there is predictability and proven genetic profitability here! Buy Rio with confidence and take your herd to the next level! • Selling ½ interest with possession negotiable.

Mile High Night • 2017 National Hereford Sale PICK OF HEIFERS

Lot

27 PICK

• We wanted our best heifer for the Denver sale and it has been a challenge for us to decide which heifer we like best. So, rather than offering our best one, we will give you a choice of the best three from the heart of our program. You tell us what you want and it is here. These Hometown heifers have us really excited about their futures and we think they would be an asset to anyone. The Odetta mating would be full sibs to the popular bred heifer we sold in last year’s Denver sale for $9,750 to Buck Cattle. The Caliberry cow is producing super show heifers that are leaving their mark in the ring. If you like their pictures, they are even more impressive in person. Stop by the pen and tell us which one you like the best. There is something for everyone in the set of females. You won’t be disappointed.

• This female has been a head turner on our place since the day she was born. The dam is a full sib to the Topp 755T bull that has been a leading sire in our breed for many years. The mating to Perks Easy Money, a past high seller in Denver going to Upstream Ranch, was an easy choice once you see the power, rib shape and foot this female combines into one awesome package. We feel the mating potential with this female is unlimited, making her a sure donor that will produce champion caliber offspring. • The seller reserves the right to two future successful IVF flushes with a minimum of 6 embryos per flush at the buyers convenience and sellers expense.

• This horned daughter of Showtime is backed by a powerful cow family that has produced high sellers, national champions, elite donors and herd bulls. Her dam is a past division champion in Denver who is also a full sibling to the 2016 NWSS Reserve National Champion Horned Female and JNHE Champion Horned Female. This youngster is long bodied, tight necked and has an abundance of body and mass. She’s feminine and super sound yet still possesses enough power and muscle. She will have a bright future in the showring, but that is not where this female stops as she will be one that will out produce herself as an elite donor.

HEREFORD MOM DIARIES This Dirt ‘Don’t Hurt’ I’ll admit it: I’m somewhat of a neat freak. Or, at least, I was before I had children, a husband and livestock. Before I met my now-husband, Craig, I once broke up with a guy because he left my bathroom towels crumpled in my bathroom every time he dried his hands. OK, so maybe there was a bit more to it than that, but the towels were the final straw. Another of my former-life pet peeves was walking barefoot on a floor only to have dirt or who-knows-what stick to the bottom of my feet. And, most days, it still drives me to “crazy lady” status. Every day, I sweep the kitchen floor and the hallway that leads to the back door. Every day, I have a resulting pile of straw, hay, dirt and unknowns I’d rather not think about. I’d be lying if I said I handled it with a Mary Poppins attitude. I probably more likely resemble Miss Hannigan from Annie’s orphanage. But the other day, it hit me. This isn’t just dirt from kids and a husband who don’t always take off their boots at the back door. Although I wouldn’t complain if they decided to remove those boots at the back door as I’ve asked them a time or two or 75. However, that’s another story. That dirt and straw and those remnants from the barn and pasture

Hereford.org

are also the signs of the life we’re offering our children near the Lee family farm, raising Herefords — and horses and chickens, too. That dirt represents kids who are taking the lives of their animals as their responsibility. That dirt is a sign of kids who know life beyond themselves and kids who know what it means to put something else before self. That dirt symbolizes early mornings and late nights with animals which sometimes take priority over any other task of the day. Of sitting up late nights to ensure a healthy delivery of a new calf. Of an early-morning check on a heifer which didn’t clean her feed pan the night before. It’s a sign of a boy who’s ridden alongside his grandpa in the tractor and grain cart from sunrise to sunset — talking on the CBs with the men in the combines, making the trips to the elevator with hard-working guys who are teaching him wisdom from working the land for decades and maybe a bad habit or two, as well. That dirt exemplifies kids who are learning the skills they will need to succeed in life, whether or not their careers take an agricultural path. You’d be hard pressed to find another

lifestyle that teaches so many life skills so readily, so often. And that dirt represents a family working side by side to achieve a goal. Sure, there are moments that aren’t picture perfect — far from it, for sure. But, hopefully, that dirt is a sign of kids who know just how much their parents love them, believe in them and will support them in achieving any goal they set for themselves. No doubt, there are many days when I believe life would be so much easier without the responsibilities that the livestock bring. And, yes, it would be a lot less hectic. Heck, I might even be able to get regular pedicures and manicures, and we might be able to take a “real” family vacation each year. But then I think about what our kids would not experience: The responsibility of pulling on those dirt-covered boots each morning and evening to head out to the barn, the knowledge they have of the circle of life, the satisfaction in a job well done. So I’ll take the dirt. Because before too long, that dirt won’t be tracked in by little feet any longer. And who knows? I just might miss it, after all. HW

Are You Ready? Understanding the new Veterinary Feed Directive can help cattlemen prepare for the new antibiotics in feed rule. by Heather Smith Thomas

B

eef producers must comply with the new Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) regarding use of antibiotics in feed as of Jan. 1, 2017. This rule is aimed at improving management of certain antibiotics considered medically important to humans — putting them under more veterinary supervision. It is part of a larger movement to minimize development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

What is a VFD? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken steps to change how these antibiotics can be legally used in livestock production through adding antibiotics to feed to enhance growth. The VFD is a written statement from a licensed veterinarian authorizing the producer to

114

/ December 2016

purchase certain antimicrobial drugs and to use them in livestock feed. It does not apply to antimicrobial drugs injected into individual animals for treatment of disease or to medications added to drinking water. Extension veterinarian and professor at South Dakota State University Russ Daly says to best understand the way the new VFD works is to think of it in terms of a prescription. “For instance, if a person needs medication and goes to a doctor, you get a form filled out by the doctor and you take that to the pharmacy to have the prescription filled,” Daly explains. “In this instance, you take the form from your veterinarian to the feed store or supplier and they sell you the medication for your cattle.”

In order for producers to obtain a VFD, they will need to establish a veterinarian-clientpatient relationship (VCPR). This is similar to a relationship a patient has with his/her doctor; the veterinarian understands what and why they are treating, all with knowledge of the cattle. The VFD is designed to give veterinarians more overview of how certain medications are used in livestock feed. “FDA’s intent is to add checks and balances regarding certain feed additives. It is important for beef producers to know that it doesn’t affect every feed additive. Mainly we are looking at the tetracyclines — things like chlortetracycline (CTC crumbles), and oxytetracycline,” Daly says. There are many medications that are not affected, such as those Hereford.org


to control bloat and parasites. “If people are only using ionophores like lasalocid (Bovatec) or monensin (Rumensin) or melengestrol (MGA) and other things that are not on the list, the new directive won’t affect them. When combinations of these products are used with drugs on the VFD list, however, the VFD would be required,” Daly says.

Follow the label Producers should talk with their veterinarians ahead of time to discuss the feed-grade medications they are currently using, to find out which ones will be affected and to discuss the medications being used and the ones they might plan to use. “Producers need to understand that VFDs can only be written for what’s on the label of the medication. This includes feeding rate, length of time it will be fed and uses of the drug,” Daly says. “It always has been, and continues to be, illegal to use any medication in a manner that is not on the label. In the past, because these drugs were available overthe-counter, there was no way to make sure these rules were being followed. Now that a veterinarian is involved, and has to fill out the form, there won’t be any leeway regarding going off-label in a different dosage rate, or using the drug for a disease that is not on the label,” Daly explains. Therefore, everyone is assured that these medications are being used in the manner for which they were designed. “Most producers and veterinarians want to show the public that the industry is using and always has used these medications in a responsible and appropriate manner,” Daly says. “It is frustrating dealing with some of the new regulations because there is not a lot of hard science behind them regarding how this actually is going to affect antibiotic resistance in humans. At the same time, we want to be able to keep using these drugs, and have these still be available for us to provide treatment.” Hereford.org

By Jan. 1, the drug manufacturers will have labels up-to-date reflecting the FDA requirements. Anyone wishing to use those antibiotics after Jan. 1 will need to have a VFD in hand. “This also includes drugs purchased before Jan. 1 and ones producers still have on hand and want to use,” Daly says. “The VFD is considered an authorization to feed that medication.”

How to get a VFD In order for a producer to obtain a VFD, the veterinarian fills out the VFD, giving a copy to the producer, who can then take it to a supplier. “This can be done in paper form, or electronically through online services,” Daly says. Producers should talk with their veterinarians to understand the logistics of how this process will happen with their own operations. “The rules did leave flexibility in how these can be written,” Daly adds. “Antibiotic companies will be coming out with their own forms, specific to their product, and in some cases this will be helpful.” Along with changes in authorization needed for use of medically important food-grade drugs, there will be changes in medically important drinking water medications, which will now be classified as prescription drugs. “It will be similar to how producers currently go to the veterinarian to get a prescription for antibiotic treatment of respiratory disease in a certain animal,” Daly says. “This includes water formulations of tetracyclines and sulfas. Being a prescription drug means there is some flexibility in their use. Veterinarians could authorize extra-label use for these if they think it is necessary, on a caseby-case basis — keeping records and noting withdrawal times.” In some cases with diseases, Daly says water medication is more feasible for a certain group of animals than feed-grade medications because there may be more options available. “Your

veterinarian will be aware of the possibilities for treating your animals in the best and most appropriate manner.” Daly says many producers use feed-grade medications out of habit. “These additives may not be based on real need,” he says. “This could be a chance to discuss their feed program with the veterinarian and maybe simplify and reduce some costs. Their veterinarian could work with them on different ways to prevent and treat diseases besides what’s traditionally used in the feed.” HW

“Most producers and veterinarians want to show the public that the industry is using and always has used these medications in a responsible and appropriate manner.” — Russ Daly
