World’s Perspective

Taking Time to Reflect

by Julie Mais

The AHA Annual Meeting and Conference brought Hereford breeders together to reflect and to move forward. I was at a birthday party a few months ago, and it was a typical scene. A nice dinner with family and friends — well, it was pizza, but that’s what the birthday gal wanted and who can argue with pizza — cake and ice cream and a lot of joy and laughter were had by all. We settled into the family room to watch the guest of honor open presents. She received some funny, lovely and practical gifts, a perfect mix. Soon after the last one was opened, one party guest asked her a question: Over the past year, what is something you loved and something you learned, and what are you looking forward to in the next year? It took her a few moments to respond, and if I had been in her seat, I would have needed time, as well, to reflect on an entire year. As I pondered this question for myself, I realized that when living life each day, I often don’t take time to consider the big picture. In the excitement of life, it’s good practice to take time to reflect. The end of another year is fast approaching, and I’m sure many are making plans for 2018. Hereford breeders recently met for the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo. It was a weekend of reflecting on a successful year, learning about new opportunities and technologies, and setting the course for years to come. It was an honor to witness, capture and document Hereford events that weekend. I saw breeders wanting to learn more, asking good questions in effort to improve their businesses and anxious to implement new technologies, all while helping to make those tools available. More than 300 cattlemen attended the educational forum, demonstrating continual learning is valued by our members.

On Friday evening, approximately 500 gathered to honor Hereford legacies. Each Hall of Fame and Hall of Merit inductee received a much-deserved standing ovation. Hereford breeders care about the next generation, which is evident by their immense support of youth programs and scholarships. A nice crowd flanked both sides of the AHA delegate seating on Saturday morning to hear updates from the AHA Board of Directors and to witness three breeders be elected to serve the Association. Hereford breeders care about what’s going on in the industry. The event then moved to the American Royal complex, where quality cattle went through both the sale ring and the showring. As you reflect on the weekend, please take time to share your thoughts with the Association. A survey was sent to attendees in an effort to make each Annual Meeting and Conference better than the last. Turn to Page 34 for a full review of the event.

Looking ahead In 2017, the Hereford World has gone through changes culminating with the launch of its fresh look in July. This fall, we added a new member to the Hereford World team — Kayla Jennings as editorial assistant. Kayla is no stranger to the Hereford breed. She served as the Hereford Publications Inc. intern in 2016 and has since continued to contribute to the publication. In May she graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in agricultural communications and is working toward her master’s degree in the same field. Her talents and enthusiasm are an asset to the Hereford World as we work to bring our readers, Hereford breeders and cattlemen, relevant and timely content. Hereford.org

Breed Focus

A Destination for All

by Jack Ward

The AHA Annual Meeting and Conference is a must-attend event for Hereford breeders and cattle industry members. The American Hereford Association (AHA) recently hosted its Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo. The three-day event included an educational forum, the AHA Board of Directors election, an update of yearend statistics and social activities. The AHA continues to strengthen its position in the industry. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, the AHA documented growth in all segments of the Association, including registrations, transfers, cow inventories, membership and pounds of Certified Hereford Beef (CHBÂŽ) sold. During FY17, Hereford.org received a facelift with focus on making access to important information easier from the field with a simple-to-navigate, mobile-friendly site. The AHA built a stronger presence on social media, and a fresh design of the Hereford World was released in July. With a continued focus on efficiency, electronic registrations reached an all-time high through MyHerd.org, with 77% of all registrations being recorded electronically.

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

Keep looking forward The health of the AHA is strong, but it is always important to keep looking at the future and identify the needs of all segments of the industry. You should have received the current AHA Strategic Plan in the October issue of the Hereford World. During the conference, the process of how the strategic plan was developed was shared with the membership. Other breakout sessions during the conference included updates on what is happening on Capitol Hill, consumer trends, marketing opportunities for Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle, estate planning and how breeders can implement a marketing plan to increase awareness of their programs. During the Friday morning session, breeders heard about the new genetic

evaluation. Dorian Garrick, AL Rae Centre chief scientist, and Bruce Golden, Theta Solutions LLC, CEO, presented the changes in the model along with the development of new traits and how the evaluation will handle the magnitude of genotypes that will be added. AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell and AHA Director of Records Department Stacy Sanders shared the process and expected release of the new evaluation. On Friday evening, the membership was able to gather for a fantastic evening of fellowship as the Association honored its newest members to the Hereford Hall of Fame and the Hereford Hall of Merit at the Hereford Honorees Reception. In addition, the awards for the first National Junior Hereford Association Fed Steer Shootout were presented. CHB honored those who continue to grow the CHB program in all segments including packers, food service, retailers and chefs. The evening finished with the presentation of more than $140,000 in scholarships to Hereford youth. The delegates elected three new Board members from a fantastic slate of six. Nate Frederickson, Spearfish, S.D.; Mark St. Pierre, El Nido, Calif.; and Joe Waggoner, Carthage, Miss., will serve four-year terms. The weekend ended with another great Ladies of the Royal Sale, junior and open Hereford shows, and the crowning of the 2018 National Hereford Queen. Throughout the weekend, the attendees visited with vendors in the trade show. It was a great weekend, and I would encourage you to put the 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference on your calendar for next fall. In the next few weeks, you should receive a survey asking each of you to give us your thoughts for topics for next year’s conference. This event needs to be a destination for all Hereford membership and allied partners. Hereford.org

Board Action

Board Meeting Highlights

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 26-27. The following are highlights of the meeting:

Finance and audit

Breed improvement

Audrey Horton and Ryan Dreher of K.Coe Isom presented the fiscal year (FY) 2017 audit report. The AHA had a consolidated net income of $652,869.

Bruce Golden and Dorian Garrick spoke to the Board about the development of the new genetic evaluation software, Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT), including the new traits, the addition of genotypes and new model changes. They also urged the Board and staff to create opportunities to continue to collect phenotypes on genotypes on hard to measure traits of economic importance such as Dry Matter Intake (DMI). The Board unanimously passed a motion to use the full 50K imputed genotype for parentage verification through BOLT.

Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) CHB sold 55,059,008 lb. in FY17 which was another record year. Retail sales recorded the largest growth of 18%. CHB introduced a new upper ⅔ Choice program, CHB Premium, in January 2017 and has seen sales grow to nearly 2 million lb. since.

Marketing and communications The AHA launched its new national ad campaign, “The Bald-Faced Truth about Hereford Genetics,” in early fall. The advertising placement focus has been shifted more toward digital. The click rate for the first launch of digital advertising is exceeding expectations and better than the industry average. The AHA has also grown its presence on social media outlets, recording a 25% growth on Facebook, an 83% growth on Instagram and a 27% growth on Twitter.

Member service It was reported that electronic reporting continues to grow in all areas of data submission and payments, with more than 77% electronic registrations.

Show and sale The Board unanimously approved the following slate of judges for the 2018 National Junior Hereford Expo. Owned females — Scott Schaake, Westmoreland, Kan.

Steers and bred-and-owned bulls — Ryan Rathman, Slaton, Texas Bred-and-owned females and cow-calf — Chris Mullinix, Manhattan, Kan. The Board unanimously approved a change to the points accumulated at national and regional shows, which doubles points for the grand and reserve grand champions. The Board unanimously approved to support the Foundation 1 Club at all national sales with 1% of the gross sales going to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America. This will not add commission to consignors.

Election The Board elected the following officers and made these additional appointments and decisions for 2018: President: Kevin Schultz Vice-president: Pete Atkins Secretary: Jack Ward Treasurer: Leslie Mathews CHB president: Jim Mickelson AHA’s National Cattlemen’s Beef Association representative: Kevin Schultz Approval of audit firm: tabled Ratification of election process: unanimously approved

Performance Matters

Embracing Genomics

by Shane Bedwell

The AHA continues to advance in breed improvement with help from breeders embracing genomic technology. It’s hard to believe December is here. The saying “time flies by when you’re having fun” would apply for me this last year. What a year it has been for Hereford, and I can’t help but think the best is yet to come. Witnessing the enthusiasm at the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting and Conference was truly remarkable and encouraging as we continue to advance in the areas of breed improvement. This year’s educational forum spent the morning discussing the fundamental changes of the updated genetic evaluation. Bruce Golden, CEO of Theta Solutions LLC, and Dorian Garrick, AL Rae Center chief scientist, dug in deep to changes taking place as we switch over to the updated genetic evaluation utilizing Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT). I have summarized the key differences of the updated genetic evaluation, and you can find these on Page 28.

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

Updated genetic evaluation As we move forward in this genetic evaluation transition, it will be important to understand the changes we have made and the thought process behind them. I feel confident the changes and additions of traits in the evaluation will not only strengthen our ability to better predict future progeny performance but, more importantly, better inform us earlier in life how to better mate these animals for future success. Undoubtedly, there will be individual animals that will change, but it is important to note we have performed multiple analyses comparing the previous expected progeny differences (EPDs) to those coming from the new analyses; the correlations are very high. We will be adding Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) to the updated genetic evaluation as a predictor trait of a

10

| December 2017

female’s ability to stay in the herd through the age of 12 (10 calvings after calving as a two-year-old heifer). This trait is built through Whole Herd Total Performance Reporting (TPR™). We have amassed well over a million records since the inception of Whole Herd TPR in 2001, but because of the lack of females that have been genotyped to this point, we are unable to include the genomic component in the SCF evaluation at this time. Moving forward there needs to be a concerted effort in collecting female genotypes to better predict not only SCF but all female traits as well. In order to accomplish this, two things must happen: You must be willing to embrace the genomic technology and to realize the progress that can be made when you have your entire cow herd genotyped. The price needs to be lucrative enough to warrant testing all females in your herd. I can’t make the first decision for you, but what I can guarantee is the AHA Board of Directors and staff are committed to giving you the most competitive DNA price on the market. Because of our continued collaboration with GeneSeek, we are initiating a limited time, special project price of $20 per female to get your cow herd genotyped. For $20 you will be able to get parentage, a genomic profile and the abnormalities results along with a complimentary Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU). Yes, that’s right. What used to cost $55 will now cost $20 to allow you to advance your herd. This project will be only for females on your cow herd inventory, and you must commit to genotyping all females on this list. Additionally, all samples will need to be submitted via a TSU. Look for additional updates on the specifics of this exciting project and how to participate. Hereford.org

McDonald Farm donates Lot 1 McDonald Farm, Grand Rapids, Mich., has graciously donated MF 104Y Eve 109 19E ET to sell as Lot 1, the foundation female, Jan. 14, 2018, during the Mile High Night Sale at the NWSS in Denver. All proceeds will benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and the “Growing a Lasting Legacy” campaign, supporting leadership and education for the next generation of Hereford youth.

Eve (registration no. 43826516) is a Jan. 14, 2017, daughter of CRR 719 Catapult 109 and out of MF 914W About Yasmine 104Y. “Eve is a powerfully made, stout structured Catapult daughter with explosive rib and stunning design,” says Scott McDonald. “She is a direct daughter of donor Yasmine, who is known for power, mass and a proven track record. Her expected progeny difference (EPD) profile and phenotype are balanced across the board. We believe that Eve is one of the best we have ever raised, if not the very best.” McDonald Farm is retaining ½ embryo interest on the female.

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

by Laura Loschke

Spring inventory reminder Spring 2018 herd inventories will be generated this month for Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) members. Check your mail or your MyHerd.org account for your herd inventory, and remember to get it turned in by Jan. 15 to receive a 25-centper-head discount on every female maintained on the inventory. Inventories turned in between Jan. 16 and March 1 will be charged the normal $5.50 per cow, $3 per first-time heifer and an optional $1.50 per bull. Any inventories turned in after March 1 will incur the $2 per head surcharge. Any dam whose offspring is intended to be registered and have weaning performance data recorded through the Whole Herd TPR program must be listed on the current inventory.

Steps to completing your inventory:

• Review each animal on the list

and assign a herd ID (if one isn’t already assigned) to each animal maintained on the inventory.

• Report disposal information for

animals no longer active in your herd. Make sure these are only animals that are no longer in your herd. If you dispose of an animal and later try to record a calf out of it, there is a $30

SOLUTION 668Z

• Multiply owned animals should be kept on inventory.

• Keep donor dams on

inventory, even if they are not in your possession.

• Report the inventory status

Q: What if I have a multiply owned dam, but I am not in possession of her or registering her offspring?

• Report the inventory status “Non-

“Next Season” for all females expected to calve in the following calving season (i.e. fall). Exposed” for any first-time heifers you wish to keep in your inventory that haven’t been exposed to breeding conditions yet.

• Add any additional animals at

the end. Provide a registration number and a herd ID for each new animal.

Traditional paper registry members can check a box located at the top of the inventory form to receive registration applications with preprinted dam information. Also, any linked-account animals will be listed on the primary account’s inventory. Having trouble navigating through MyHerd?

reinstatement fee to reactivate the animal. The fee applies if it has been more than six months since the animal was disposed of.

Q: How do I get to my bull inventory on MyHerd? It’s only listing my dams.

A: If you are not the breeder who will be registering the offspring of a multiply owned dam, make sure you mark her as “Multi-owned, no calf” in your inventory. This label will ensure you won’t have to provide a reproductive status for her.

Q: How do I submit my inventory for billing?

A: Traditional paper registry members simply need to mail their inventory into the AHA office, and the billing will be taken care of once the inventory is received. MyHerd members need to click the button reading “Submit job now to bill inventory,” shown above the list of dams on the inventory screen. Be sure to make all changes to the inventory before hitting this button. Once you hit the button, the Association will bill you for all dams remaining on the inventory.

Certified Hereford Beef News

by Kaylen Alexander

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

The air has turned chilly and the birds have been stuffed. Thanksgiving has come and gone, leaving the excitement of Christmas in its path. In the midst of Hallmark Christmas movies, holiday parties and last-minute shopping for loved ones on your list, it’s easy to forget about one of the main holiday attractions — Christmas dinner. While the Thanksgiving turkey was good, Christmas is the time to enjoy another culinary option — beef. Whether you prefer yours to be roasted or pan-seared, we can all agree on one thing: It’s not Christmas without a strip loin roast. Waking up to the savory aroma of a roast in the oven doesn’t have to be a dream. It can actually be

quite simple. Although roasting can be scary, it is a much more enjoyable process if you remember these simple tips: 1) Keep it simple. You don’t need a lot of seasoning for a strip loin roast. Simple seasonings enhance the beefy flavor of Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®). 2) Use a thermometer. No eyeing it here. You will need a thermometer to check the internal temperature of the roast. For a medium rare roast, cook the meat to an internal temperature of 130-140 degrees. For a medium roast, cook the meat to an internal temperature

of 145-155 degrees. Once you pull the strip out of the oven, let it stand for 15 to 20 minutes so the juices can return to the center. 3) Transform the pan drippings into a simple Au Jus gravy to top the roast and potatoes. Christmas dinner will be a hit. For the picture-perfect Christmas, try this CHB strip loin roast with the roasted garlic sauce recipe below to keep everyone at your table coming back for more. Kaylen Alexander is the marketing and communications coordinator for Certified Hereford Beef. She can be reached at kalexander@hereford.org.

Youth Movement First Fed Steer Shootout a Success by Bailey Jones, NJHA Director

During the Hereford Honorees Reception in Kansas City, Mo., on Oct. 28, junior members were recognized for their participation in the inaugural National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) Fed Steer Shootout. This program provides an opportunity for NJHA members to gain experience and education in the cattle feeding industry. Participants have the ability to estimate feedyard performance and carcass merit on a pen of steers or an individual steer — in the end, comparing the information to actual performance data. The 2017 Fed Steer Shootout was a tremendous success with 72

head of cattle from 10 states entered in the contest. The Hereford Research Foundation sponsored $5,000 in cash awards, and Anderson Bean Boots provided handcrafted boots for the winners. Custom belt buckles and banners were given out to the various division winners, as well. The NJHA also hosted an informational session during the educational forum in Kansas City, Mo., presenting actual data from the contest and reports from NJHA members Trevor Johnson, Centerville, S.D., and Molly Biggs, Dixon, Ill. For junior members interested in participating in the contest, there are several divisions available. The steers can be entered on an individual basis or as a pen of three. They can also be either purebred Hereford or commercial steers. The purebred animals must be registered in the American Hereford Association (AHA) database at the time of entry, and any commercial animals must meet the Certified Hereford Beef® live animal specifications. Due to the popularity of the program, the NJHA is excited to announce it will be offering two programs this coming year. The first arrival date to the feedlot was Nov. 3, and the arrival date for the second program will be Jan. 5. Calves for the 2018 contest must have been born after Jan. 1, 2017. All calves must weigh between 600-750 lb. at time of delivery, have been weaned 45 days or more and have had two rounds of vaccinations with modified live vaccines suggested. Last year, participants got the chance to attend four different webinars to learn more about

topics such as marketing, feedlot management, genetics, ultrasound and animal health programs. All of the participants had the opportunity to travel to Gregory Feedlots Inc., Tabor, Iowa, to see their steers on feed, review the performance of their steers and tour Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc. The NJHA looks forward to even more educational opportunities for junior members in the coming year as it educates shootout participants on the cattle feeding industry and its relationship to the seedstock industry. Cattle participating in the first contest of 2018 arrived at Gregory Feedlots, Oct. 30 through Nov. 3. There are currently 58 steers consigned by 15 junior members from 11 states on feed, and the feedlot is gearing up for the arrival of the second group the first week in January. Upon arrival to the feedlot, steers will go through a warm-up period, and then all cattle will be weighed, ultrasounded and implanted. This contest is a great way to get involved in a very important part of the industry outside the showring and to learn how to breed cattle better in order to help feed the world. Thank you to the program’s sponsors in 2017: UltraInsights Processing Lab Inc., GeneSeek®, Allflex USA, Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc., Zoetis Animal Health, Anderson Bean Boots, Gregory Feedlots and the Hereford Research Foundation. BioZyme® Inc. has just committed to match the foundation’s financial support of the contest in 2018, and the NJHA is proud to have VitaFerm’s commitment to the program as the association makes the program bigger and better in 2018.

Foundation’s Focus

The Power of 1

by Amy Cowan

No gift is too big or too small when it comes to supporting the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA). While talking to Tim and Kara Coleman, Sierra Ranches, about their vision for the Foundation 1 Club, the conversation kept returning to that message. How fitting, as we wrap up a milestone year for HYFA and are providing more opportunities than even before because of all scopes and sizes of gifts the foundation has been blessed with. The Foundation 1 Club is the newest program offered by HYFA, and I think it is one with the greatest foresight for the entire breed to get involved in creating opportunities for the next generation. Sierra Ranches kicked off the club with its inaugural Western Treasures production sale in October, giving back 1% of the gross to the foundation. I greatly appreciate the Coleman family and Sierra Ranches for their vision for this program and what it means for the future. The power of 1% will truly make a huge difference in the educational and leadership programs we can offer to the young folks growing up in the Hereford breed. Even more exciting news for the Foundation 1 Club is the recent support it is receiving around the breed. Aubrey’s Cattle Co. from Indiana has joined the club and will be offering 1% of its Lot 18 cow-calf pair in the 2018 Mile High Night Sale in Denver.

Lot 1 excitement builds for Denver The Lot 1 Foundation Female has been highlighting the national Hereford sale in Denver the past nine years, with nearly $700,000 generated to support HYFA’s mission. In year 10, the momentum continues as we have a very special lady that will lead off the Mile High Night. Scott McDonald, McDonald Farms in Grand Rapids, Mich., has selected nothing but his very best to represent Lot 1 and the HYFA. This January Catapult daughter is a showstopper, and heads will turn when she enters the sale ring in Stadium Arena. MF 104Y Eve 109 19E ET is yet another example of the power of one. Consider putting Lot 1 to work in your donor battery, taking your program to new levels and supporting a great cause in the Growing a Lasting Legacy Campaign.

One receipt at a time A year ago, we set the wheels in motion on what is proving to be an awesome fundraising endeavor for HYFA. Bob and Lisa Norton and our other friends at BioZyme® Inc. partnered with HYFA to create the Feed the Future program. BioZyme pledged to contribute one dollar to HYFA for every bag or tub of

The Coleman family.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors recently announced the proceeds from the Ladies of the Royal Sale in Kansas City and the upcoming Mile High Night National Hereford Sale will take part in the Foundation 1 Club. What a neat way for consignors, buyers, bidders and all who make up the national sale offerings to give back. I can’t wait to see the power of 1% take hold even more in the new year. Stay tuned as we work to add sales and lots to the Foundation 1 Club lineup and see what HYFA can do with 1%.

At the Hereford Honorees Reception in Kansas City, Mo., BioZyme presented HYFA with a $14,671 check from the proof of purchase receipts on tubs and bags of VitaFerm mineral purchased by Hereford breeders around the country — another wonderful testimony to the power of one. VitaFerm is excited to continue this program in year two, and I am confident we can double and even triple the payback to Hereford youth. Feed the Future has the ability to take HYFA to the next level and to create more opportunities in terms of education and leadership. BioZyme is such a big part of our past, and now this makes it an integral part of our future. Please, keep those receipts coming in year two. One dollar and one bag of mineral at a time, we will make an even greater impact on education and leadership. As we close 2017 and look to a new year, I can’t help being excited about all the good things surrounding the breed and the foundation we are building. I continue to be amazed by the power of our Hereford family. One donor, one lot, one sale and one gift at a time — together, these programs are powerful and are already making an enormous difference in the lives of our National Junior Hereford Association members. Thank you for your belief in the power of one and best wishes for a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year.

Hereford Beef (CHB®) prime rib roast with the bone in. First, you will pull your roast out of the refrigerator a few hours prior to cooking and let it sit. This step ensures the roast is almost room temperature prior to cooking. Next, preheat the oven to its maximum temperature. While the oven is heating, you will rub the roast. Combine all above ingredients in a bowl, making sure the ingredients are mixed well. Coat the entire rib roast with the rub. If your roast is larger than four pounds, you may need to double the rub recipe. Place the roast on a roasting rack with the fat side facing toward the top of the oven. Cook the roast for 15 minutes at maximum oven temperature. Then cover the roast with foil and turn the oven down to 325 degrees. Continue to cook for 15 minutes per pound or until the desired cooked temperature is reached. Finally, watch as your tried-and-true taste testers devour every piece of their new favorite main dish!

Balanced Approach

Gregory Polled Herefords’ longtime commitment to producing high-quality cattle has kept the operation going for four generations. by Austin Black

F

or more than 85 years, Hereford cattle have dotted the pastures along Houston Rd., near Houstonia, Mo. It started with a wedding gift for E.H. and Mary Gregory from Mary’s father in 1932. The horned Hereford heifer became the foundation for E.H.’s commercial herd. In the late 1940s, E.H. started buying registered polled Herefords. “I think he liked the disposition of the Hereford cattle,” says J.D. Gregory, E.H.’s son. His

first set of heifers came from an association sale in Fulton, Mo., and made their home in the front pasture. “That was his pride and joy in front of the house,” J.D. says. In 1955, E.H. made a trip to North Platte, Neb., to buy his first polled Hereford bull. He purchased the bull out of Orville Kuhlman’s winning carload lot in Denver. “Dad had a ’55 Chevy car and rented a trailer to bring the bull back on the car,” J.D. says. It was the start of a long-standing

tradition for the Gregory family. J.D. and his brother joined the operation and Gregory Polled Herefords was born.

The early days From day one, Gregory Polled Herefords has worked to produce high-quality cattle that meet the needs of commercial producers. The Gregorys hosted annual production sales on the farm from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s. Then again in 1990 and 1992. “We always tried to sell around 80 to 100 lots,” says Kevin, J.D.’s son. In those days, J.D. traveled the country buying cattle and later selling “family lots” in their production sale. “We did a lot of business in Arkansas and Mississippi. Then we’d go north to Minnesota and the The majority of Gregory Polled Herefords’ customer base are commercial cattlemen Dakotas,” Kevin notes. with black-hided cows. They also bought cattle in Kansas, their herd. Other buyers have large-framed cows Iowa and Illinois.

But Missouri Hereford Association sale,” Kevin says. “It the baldie trait isn’t the only thing customers like got to where we could sell more off the farm and about Gregory Polled Hereford bulls. “A good get really good prices.” disposition helps,” Kevin says. He recalls one customer who looked at the Making better cows bulls with his wife.

Later, the husband told Kevin “We start calving around Feb. 10 and by April, that his wife now feeds the bull every day — we’re usually down to only three or four left.” something she had never done.

heifers bred to Red Angus, but recently we’ve sold F1 females bred to Red Angus,” Kevin says. The demand for their females continues to grow, and the Gregorys plan to build their commercial herd. “We’re trying to expand the commercial side, but keep it as a closed herd. That way we know the background on the cows and can build on it,” Kevin says. The two breeding programs complement each other well. “The Show-Me-Select sales give us an outlet to supplement the purebred side of our operation,” Kevin says. “People see our females that may be looking for a purebred bull.” Part of the progressive breeding program at Gregory Polled Herefords is stringent female selection. They try to keep both their herds closed and raise their own replacements. “Sometimes we have up to three generations of females on the farm,” Kevin says. “With the girls coming in to the operation, we were bringing in a few females. But now, we might just buy two or three cows each year. A cow has to be a functional female. She has to milk and have a good set of numbers behind her.” This is especially important since the end result is a herd bull. “When a customer looks at the bull, they look at the numbers first,” he says. “We try to balance out the paper side with the animal side.”

Showring strategy Another area Gregory Polled Herefords tries to balance is the showring. “We’ve had a lot of heifers we’ve shown that made phenomenal cows,” Kevin says. The farm has always shown cattle and done well. But they’ve never sacrificed performance for a purple ribbon. “I don’t look for the extreme side of it. I try to find the middle and find out the cow’s background.” The approach has worked well. The Gregorys often place in the top end of their class and

have won division champion several times at the Missouri State Fair. “When we were having production sales on the farm, we had good cattle but not show cattle,” Kevin says. They would advertise their sale in agricultural publications, and people came became they recognized the name. “People would show up at the sale because they saw us at the fair,” he says. It’s still the case today. Showing has helped their bull sales grow in recent years, and the Gregory’s have several repeat customers.

Continuing the legacy It’s no question Gregory Polled Herefords is built on a lasting legacy. From celebrating 85 years of showing at the Missouri State Fair this August to having four generations stay in the operation, the Gregorys take pride in their Hereford heritage. “It’s in our blood, and it’s something we enjoy. I just like looking at green pastures with red-white-face cows,” Kevin says. J.D. is proud his grandkids and great-grandkids want to raise cows. “It’s something you always dream of,” J.D. says. “You always dream they will carry on the tradition of what my father started.” Keeping the family involved is what drives Gregory Polled Herefords to succeed. Kevin says, “Our mission is to keep building on this to pass it on to the next generation. Grandpa started this cattle operation, and he never wanted to keep getting bigger. He wanted to produce top quality animals. We want to keep producing top quality animals and keep our family tradition going.” Hereford.org

Genetic Evaluation Updates The American Hereford Association outlines major revisions to its genetic evaluation. by Shane Bedwell

T

he American Hereford Association (AHA) will continue to offer the most robust and progressive genetic evaluation, helping to identify Hereford genetics that are the most profitable for the commercial industry. Over the last two years, the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors and staff have researched and thoroughly evaluated the

28

| December 2017

necessary steps to implement a single step genomic evaluation using the Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT) software. Along with this, AHA is introducing two new economically relevant traits included in an updated set of economic indexes. The following outlines the major revisions implemented into the AHA genetic evaluation planned to be released late in 2017. Hereford.org


that are optimal for inclusion in the Marker Effects Model analysis. The AHA implemented the decoupling of models to more efficiently perform more frequent evaluations. Plus, moving away from a full multitrait evaluation will better allow for estimating traits of interest rather than building these traits through correlation, as was done in the older analysis. The models are listed below.

PHOTO COURTESY OF VAN NEWKIRK HEREOFRDS

2a. Birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight and maternal milk

1

The Genomic Component

Today’s evaluation utilizes Molecular Breeding Values (MBVs) to predict the genomic contribution. This post-evaluation blending exercise correlates the genetic relationship between the MBVs and the traits of interest. The updated genetic evaluation can more precisely evaluate the genomic differences between animals. This single-step analysis evaluates Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) markers on cattle DNA using an analytical approach called the Marker Effects Model. The set of markers used has been selected to be the most informative for the traits in the genetic evaluation. Like phenotypes, the marker effects of a genotype directly impact an animal’s expected progeny difference (EPD).

2

Model Changes

The AHA has long conducted a full multitrait genetic evaluation, meaning all traits are correlated to one another either through a favorable or unfavorable relationship. With the implementation of the new evaluation, traits have been grouped together into meaningful subsets Hereford.org

The main growth model will stay the same with little effect to traits in the model. However, because of the new analysis’ use of the single-step Marker Effects Model, some animals’ EPDs will change. These changes will primarily be the result of increased accuracy, using the new methods and reduced bias.

2b. Scrotal circumference and weaning weight Scrotal circumference is correlated with weaning weight, but only scrotal circumference EPDs will be reported out of this model. There is a decrease of correlated data impacting scrotal EPDs, but this impact will be very small. Again, because of the change in the way the updated genetic evaluation is handling the genomic component, there are changes in some animals’ scrotal circumference EPDs.

2c. Birth weight, ultrasound back fat, ultrasound intramuscular fat, carcass weight, carcass back fat and carcass marbling score Birth weight is used as the correlated trait with the carcass traits to account for selection that may occur. Weaning and yearling weight are no longer included as correlated traits with carcass fat and carcass marbling. Instead scan fat and intramuscular fat, along with birth and carcass weight, are used to resolve traits of interest when real carcass data are not collected. This method could create some changes in carcass fat and marbling EPDs, the two traits reported out of this model. Also, the variance components used as part of the analysis procedure were reestimated for all carcass traits and the correlation between scan intramuscular fat and carcass marbling decreased from 0.70 to 0.54. Finally, because of the change in the way the updated genetic evaluation is handling the genomic component, there can be changes to some animals’ EPDs. continued on page 30...

the updated genetic evaluation is handling the genomic component, there can be changes to some animals’ EPDs.

2f. Mature cow weight and weaning weight

2d. Weaning weight, ultrasound ribeye area, carcass ribeye area and carcass weight Weaning weight will be used as the correlated trait as birth weight is not adequate to solve for weight traits. However, yearling weight will no longer be included as a correlated trait with carcass weight and carcass ribeye area. Instead, scan ribeye area and birth weight are included with any available carcass data to resolve the traits of interest. Carcass ribeye area and carcass weight will be the only two traits reported out of this model. Analyses comparing the previous carcass trait EPDs to those coming from the new analyses are very high but can be different for some animals, especially because of the change in the way the updated genetic evaluation is handling the genomic component.

2e. Calving ease, calving ease total maternal and birth weight The updated genetic evaluation uses a random regression statistical procedure to calculate calving ease and maternal calving ease (total maternal calving ease). Birth weight is used as the correlated trait in this model, but is not reported. The birth weight EPD that is reported comes from the Growth Traits analysis (2a.) discussed previously. This evaluation moves away from the threshold model previously used, in part because it required that observations that are the same within a contemporary group (e.g., herd) could not be used. This means that the new analysis can use all observations regardless of score as well as use the corresponding birth weight phenotype. Even though this evaluation uses only data from two-year-old heifers, more observations will be used, resulting in a more comprehensive calving ease evaluation than what is being performed today. Also, because of the change in the way

30

| December 2017

Mature cow weight is analyzed with weaning weight, but only mature cow weight will be reported out of this model. The published weaning weight EPD comes from the previously discussed Growth Traits analysis (2a.). Even though the new mature cow weight EPDs are highly correlated to the old analysis, small changes may be seen in part because yearling weight is no longer used as a correlated trait. Finally, because of the change in the way the updated genetic evaluation is handling the genomic component, there could be changes in some animals’ EPDs.

2g. Sustained cow fertility Sustained cow fertility is analyzed by itself, without a correlated trait, using the random regression statistical model to predict female fertility/ longevity. This trait predicts a female’s ability to stay in the herd through the age of 12 (10 calvings after calving as a two-year-old heifer). The EPD is reported on a probability scale, meaning a higher EPD for a sire means his daughters are more likely to remain fertile and to produce more calves throughout their lifetimes. Because of the limited number of phenotypes collected that have a corresponding genotype, the genomic component is not included in this model.

2h. Udder and teat The udder and teat evaluation remains the same basic model as it is today with the exception that it includes the genomic information to increase the accuracy of prediction.

2i. Dry matter intake, weaning weight and yearling weight Dry matter intake includes weaning and yearling weight as correlated traits, but dry matter intake will be the only trait reported out of this model. This EPD predicts the daily consumption of feed. Because of the limited number of phenotypes collected that have a corresponding genotype, the genomic component is not included in this model.

3

Data Pruning Strategy

In the updated genetic evaluation, phenotypes only from progeny born after 2001, the advent of Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™), are used. The pedigree data include at least three generations of pedigrees from the observations Hereford.org


(i.e., through great-grandparents). This data cutoff was implemented to reduce the biases from the incomplete reporting of data that were submitted prior to Whole Herd TPR. The Whole Herd TPR program is based on a cow inventory system. The older data were collected only when a breeder chose to register a calf. Sires or dams that have had progeny born on both sides of Whole Herd TPR may see EPD and accuracy values change due to not including progeny born before 2001 in the genetic evaluation. Being able to have a genetic evaluation backed solely by Whole Herd TPR leverages the AHA’s commitment to its performance program and increases its reputation as a leader among breed organizations.

4

Accuracy Calculation

Because of the computing power of BOLT, the updated genetic evaluation will be able to more precisely calculate accuracy. Accuracy is quite possibly the hardest piece of a genetic evaluation to correctly compute, and because of this complexity, an approximation technique has been used to calculate accuracy by all breed organizations, including the AHA. Because of the vastly improved computing methods, a technique known as “sampling” allows the direct calculation of key variables used in calculating accuracy rather than approximating these variables. The previously used approximations overestimated the accuracy of EPDs, especially for young animals. Accuracy of animals can change with the updated evaluation because the direct method does not contain the bias from the approximations.

5

Updated Profit ($) Indexes

Both Dry Matter Intake (DMI) and Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) will now be included in the AHA $Indexes along with other key Economically Relevant Traits (ERT’s) including Carcass Weight (CW) and Mature Cow Weight (MCW). Adding these ERTs into the $Indexes will provide a more robust and comprehensive selection tool for commercial producers to select Hereford bulls to be used on British-based cows and heifers. DMI and CW will be included in all three AHA $Indexes to help predict the cost associated with feed inputs and to measure the end-product pounds that are critical for profit. SCF will replace scrotal circumference as the predictor of fertility and will be a large contributor to both maternal indexes. Because of the inclusion Hereford.org

of these key ERTs, animal index values may change. Watch for future Hereford World articles breaking down the key differences of the new index calculations. The AHA would not have been able to complete this genetic evaluation overhaul without the guidance of several key scientists. Bruce Golden, co-founder, CEO and president of Theta Solutions LLC, and Dorian Garrick, co-founder, CSO and CFO of Theta Solutions LLC, have developed the BOLT software and engineered the script writing and provided the genomic expertise for the updated genetic evaluation. Brad Crook and Shalanee Weerasinghe of Agriculture Business Research Institute (ABRI) orchestrated the genetic evaluation to run with Canadian Hereford and provided the technical support to ensure the evaluation is performing accurately. Mike MacNeil, Delta G; Matt Spangler, University of Nebraska; and Larry Kuehn, Meat Animal Research Center, provided expertise and technical backing in the update of the new economic indexes. Finally, an advisory committee was assembled to review the revisions made to the updated genetic evaluation. This committee was charged with providing feedback to the proposed changes and ultimately giving the recommendation of approval to the AHA Board of Directors. Advisory committee members include Joe Ellis of Ellis Farms, Chrisman, Ill.; Jack Holden of Holden Herefords, Valier, Mont.; Paul Bennett of Knoll Crest Farm, Red House, Va.; Lee Haygood of Indian Mound Ranch, Canadian, Texas; and Mitch Abrahamsen, Recombinetics Inc. chief commercial and scientific office.

2017 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

AHA Hosts Educational Forum by Stephanie White

H

ereford breeders gathered Oct. 27 to learn from a variety of industry topics at the educational forum during the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting and Conference. Expanded to an allday event, the forum on Friday offered two general sessions in the morning and six breakout sessions followed in the afternoon. In the first general session, Paving the Genetic Path, Dorian Garrick, AL Rae Center chief scientist, and Bruce Golden, Theta Solutions LLC CEO, broke down fundamental changes of the improved AHA genetic evaluation. A full summary of key points can be found on Page 28. In the second general session, attendees learned about the inaugural National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) Fed Steer Shootout. In the afternoon, Hereford breeders had the opportunity to attend four of the six breakout sessions to learn more about topics of their choice.

The differences and importance of the new strategic plan for AHA was shared with Hereford breeders during the educational forum.

The contest was split into purebred and commercial divisions. Purebred cattle had to be registered with the AHA, and the commercial cattle had to be either Hereford or Hereford-British cross cattle that would meet the Certified Hereford Beef® live requirements. “This first year we were pretty pleased with the turnout,” Befort says. “We had 72 total steers to start, that came from 29 different junior members from 10 different states.” Trowbridge, who maintains cattle at Gregory Feedlots in Tabor, Iowa, broke down the specifics of the contest. “The criteria for the contest to pick a winner is based on the retail value per average day on feed,” Trowbridge says. “We start off with a base calf of carcass weight. Let’s say your calf weighs 300 lb. We use a 55% yield on an unfed calf, and that is just an average we use to study base carcass weight.” Trowbridge says what they are looking for in this contest is a calf that puts on the retail value per day on

Fed Steer Shootout AHA Director of Commercial Programs Trey Befort and Gregory Feedlots Manager David Trowbridge share about the success of the first NJHA Fed Steer Shootout. Befort explains, “We sat down about a year ago to try to develop a program for our junior members outside of the showring so they could gain some industry knowledge and experience specifically with commercial cattle feeding.”

feed — rate of gain. He adds that carcass quality and premiums for the United States Department of Agriculture grades affect the value of the calf. The contest also considers yield grade. “All those numbers are put into a formula when we are done, and we have collected all the carcass data and the grades on the cattle,” he says. “We have the performance on the cattle and that’s the calculation that is going to pick the winners and losers in this.” Trowbridge says the contest did a few things not normally seen in feedlot operations. “We wanted to show, as far as the educational program, a little bit of how the growth of the cattle go along with the ultrasound information that we get (backfat and ribeye) and how that progresses during the life of that animal,” Trowbridge explains. At the end of the contest, the data were collected and calculated to determine the contest winner. “We sat down and we analyzed this data,” Trowbridge says. “There are around 50 different points on each calf that we had information on.”

Hereford: Leading the Industry

Trey Befort, AHA director of commercial programs says the Fed Steer Shootout was developed to provide junior members commerical cattle feeding experience.

AHA Executive Vice President Jack Ward discusses the AHA’s 2017-22 strategic plan and shares comparisons of what was done in the past and the importance of the new plan. “Obviously, it is important for any kind of a business, no matter what it is, to set some goals and look to the future,” Ward says. “It helps us as a staff, Hereford.org


with the direction of the Board, to set some goals for some opportunities and to show us where we need to focus and what is going on in the industry.” The AHA involved the membership when preparing the plan. “As you remember we went through the survey process,” Ward says. “But we wanted to include the membership and some industry top leaders outside of the organization who are involved in the beef cattle business. Then we wanted to have some folks who were from outside our industry. We were really fortunate to have five industry leaders that came and spoke to the Board as we got into this planning session.” Ward states the AHA Board of Directors were the ones that worked on the final plans and put the core strategy together. The surveying process had great reach and was critical to the strategy behind the plan. Ward shares the survey had 518 participates from 43 states. “We were well represented in this survey,” Ward says. “We got some really great information from this survey and learned what information and service you want to receive from the AHA. We learned what you are seeing in terms of how we are helping you market your animals and the things we are doing representing you within the industry — that was certainty step two in this process.” After a planning period, the information and the strategic plan were sent out to the AHA Board. The Board voted unanimously to accept the plan that had been developed. “We are all in this industry together,” Ward says. “We are just releasing a new national ad campaign that helps to promote the sale of Hereford genetics in the commercial cow herd based off this strategic plan.” Ward says a new mission statement came out of the strategic plan: To grow demand for Hereford genetics by delivering the highest quality and most efficient services to members and other progressive cattlemen in the area of breed registry and genetic improvements and education. Ward also shares that the vision statement took on a new look and some core strategies were defined. Hereford.org

There is great value in succession planning, and Hereford members learned how they can prepare during the educational forum.

“We need you all to become a part of Team Hereford and to be telling the story on the local and state level,” Ward says. “You need to be active in your local beef cattle associations, the state beef cattle associations and national organizations. You need to be a part of it and you need to be a face at all these meetings and we need to be recognized as industry leaders at some of these meetings.”

Generational Transitions Billy Cordasco, Babbitt Ranches president, shares the importance of succession planning. He points out the value of a plan and how it will help with family unity and future success for both the family and the business. “What I got to see growing up was quite a bit of family transitions and a lot of different family issues,” Cordasco says. “I saw a lot of different ownership issues and management issues, a lot of different things that are really not uncommon. Thankfully for a lot of terrific people, patience and a lot of hard work, we are where we are today and we are very thankful for that.” Cordasco says everyone has a history in their family. “When we start talking about succession planning, yes, we are talking about tomorrow, and transition is just about tomorrow,” he says. “But we as an industry, and as a culture carry a lot of our history with us when we do that. In some ways, we want to pass that down to our next generation, as well.” Cordasco points out a successful succession plan means looking at every aspect of the business and making sure every component and person is addressed.

“When doing succession planning it is not just about the business,” he says. “A lot of the times you have an operation and you have managers hired and that is its own box. Then you have the owners who in many ways are their own box, too, looking for a return on their investment. Then you have the other circle who is the family, kids and the grandparents. The extended cousins and all the other things that are involved. When doing succession planning you just can’t look at one.” Cordasco shares two priorities that his ranch’s operation depends on for succession planning. “Having an understanding of your ownership is very important so that you make better decisions about what you need to do and how you need to do it,” Cordasco says. “The second one is land use and stewardship. We want to say we are in ranching, that is what we want to say. But what we are actually in is owning the land. On this land, we can do anything we want to, including ranching. That was a really big switch for us because it just defined clearly what it is that we were involved in and that helped us with our succession planning.” Being proactive is how the Babbitt Ranch operates. “With the Babbitts I have seen relationships that can be at their worst, and I have seen relationships be at the best,” Cordasco says. “Now that we have been able to identify that, we have been able to develop some structure to address this instead of running away from it.” continued on page 38...

He also states that being recognizable can encourage greater value and a higher price point. “A brand is a journey, it is a series of events,” Weeks says. “It’s how people feel when they purchase products from you or not. It is ongoing engagement. It kind of changes the table a bit because you can do a lot with developing your brand by communicating with clients. There are a number of different avenues where you can reach individuals and its more about the experience and the feeling that people buy from you that helps to inform and develop a plan.” Weeks shares that branding is more than just visuals or words. “Being in the digital age there are any number of ways people can get information,” Weeks says. “It is no longer just mass media, no longer just print advertisement that they find in a magazine. Instead it is really a two-way street. Customers expect to get information when they want it and how they want it. That includes being able to get a text message, on a website, or from social media interaction or any number of ways they want to get information on their time and their terms.” Weeks compares a brand to a lightning rod. He says, “It can be a catalyst to launching themselves to a bigger platform and to new and different ways in which they can attract, retain and communicate with clients and customers.” Weeks shares three easy steps to building a plan: 1) Be laser focused on your customers and the value you provide to them. Understand their likes and dislikes. Understand why they buy from you and why they don’t buy from you. 2) Define and tell your story extremely well. Everyone has a story and this is your unique differentiator.

Beck shares that NCBA worked very closely with the Obama administration on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). “TPP was a negotiation between the United States and 13 other countries,” Beck says. “It would have lowered our tariffs abroad from 49% to 13%. There are huge markets abroad and TPP would have expanded our access. So TPP was a loss for us. The good news for us is that right off the bat (with the current administration) we gained access to China, and we have not had access to China in 13 years.” “The first issue being worked on is robust funding for the foot and mouth disease vaccine bank. Right now, our vaccine bank is the North American Vaccine Bank,” Beck says. “We share all our vaccine with Canada and Mexico. If we were to have an outbreak here in the United States, we would not have enough vaccine to last beyond a week’s time. All of our access to foreign markets abroad would be completely shut down and it would be incredibly devastating not just for beef producers but for all its related industries.” Beck encourages all producers to call their members of Congress and to share their stories with them.

2017 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Schultz Elected AHA President K

evin Schultz, Haviland, Kan., was announced as the new president of the American Hereford Association (AHA) during the Annual Meeting and Conference Oct. 28 in Kansas City, Mo. Kansas Hereford breeder Kevin Schultz, Haviland, Kan., manages his family’s Sandhill Farms, a sevengeneration, diversified farming and cattle operation. Hereford cattle have been bred on their land since the mid-1900s. The farming operation consists of dryland and irrigated corn, soybeans and wheat. “Transparency is vitally important for the success of the members, the Association, board and staff,” Schultz says. “I want to continue with open communication of goals and ideas between the Association and the members. I also want to support the staff in implementing the programs that have been initiated, such as the new genetic evaluation and indexes and the new ideas and programs that will be used to implement the strategic plan.” The cow herd includes appoximately 300 cows. With the maturity of Conservation Reserve Program acres,

Kevin Schultz

the Schultz family is in an expansion phase. Through the use of embryo transfer (ET), approximately 200 of the calves are registered, and the remainder will be purebred commercial. The commercial cows have been purebred Hereford since the mid-1940s. The family has fed out its steers at commercial feedlots for the past 15-20 years. Feedlot performance data, as well as individual carcass data, have been collected and tracked. In 2008 the family started a spring bull sale. In the sale all 5-year-old cows that are pregnant with heifer calves sell. The Schultz family also sells

commercial open heifers and customerowned black baldie heifers each year in the sale. Sandhill genetics have been part of the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) and the Circle A Ranch heterosis project. Kevin uses these programs to increase the accuracy and predictability of his bulls and to identify outliers that will help move the breed in the desired direction. Sandhill Farms is a Gold TPR Breeder; the family has been whole-herd reporting since the beginning of its registered cattle program. Kevin was a longtime member of the Kansas Polled Hereford Association, serving multiple terms on the board and as president. He is a current member of the Kansas Hereford Association. In 2004 he was AHA’s nominee to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Young Cattlemen’s Conference. Sandhill Farms was honored with the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Seedstock Producer of the Year Award in 2010. Kevin and his wife, Vera, have three children — Brooke, Tyler and Courtney.

Atkins selected vice president Selected to serve as the 2018 vice president was Pete Atkins, Tea, S.D. Atkins and his wife, Laura, and three sons, Scott, Craig and Pete Atkins Paul, own and operate Atkins Herefords, Tea, S.D. Pete was raised on a diversified cattle, hog and crop farming operation in southeastern South Dakota, where he and his wife live today. The Atkins family started collecting and reporting performance data in 1975. Additionally, they have used artificial insemination (AI) since the late 1970s and embryo transfer (ET) for the past nine years. Atkins Herefords’ goal is to produce high-performing cattle with moderate birth weights that have eye appeal and will work for the commercial cattleman. Emphasis is placed on raising sound, trouble-free cattle, and udder quality in the cow herd is stressed heavily. Pete thinks it is important to use a balance of all tools available when selecting breeding stock. Today, Atkins Herefords consists of a base herd of 25 registered cows, and it produces an additional 20 to 50 ET calves each year. Together with their good friends and partners, the Jerry Delaney family, the Atkins market bulls through a bull sale each year, and every other year they market females through a fall production sale. Atkins Herefords consigns bulls and females to the Mile High Night Sale and exhibits carloads of bulls and pens of heifers with the Delaneys each year in Denver. Retiring AHA directors were thanked for their four years of service with the presentation of bronze bull statues. Pictured (l to r) are: Dave Bielema, Ada, Mich.; Terri Barber, Channing, Texas; and Joe Van Newkirk, Oshkosh, Neb.

While the ranch received recognition in the showring in the ’70s and early ’80s, including cattle shown on the Hill and in the carloads at the NWSS, the Pedrettis’ goal has always been to produce cattle that work for the commercial cattlemen in California. Pedretti Ranches raises approximately 80 bulls each year, which are marketed by private treaty sales. With two calving seasons six months apart, the ranch always has the next set of bulls on test. Both Mark and his father-in-law, Gino Pedretti, work with commercial customers. Pedretti Ranches focuses on sound cattle with balance EPDs, good disposition and udder quality. Mark manages the day-to-day work including addressing herd health issues, vaccination schedules, feeding, pasture management, breeding and calving. He also works in the farming operation, which involves growing cotton, corn and hay. He also has some limited duty on the family dairy. continued on page 42...

Hereford Breeders Celebrate 50 Years in the Hereford Business

I

n celebration of 50 years in the Hereford business David Smith, Tru-la Da Ranch, NS Polled Herefords, Hot Iron Enterprises, JC Cattle Co. and WCN Polled Herefords were honored as Golden Breeders Oct. 27. The six were recognized during the American Hereford Association (AHA) Hereford Honorees Reception in Kansas City, Mo. “The Golden Hereford Breeder award represents a tremendous milestone,” says Shane Bedwell, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. “The AHA commends the dedication and longevity of these families within the Hereford breed.” David Smith, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, developed a love for cattle from his grandfather. He started out showing sheep in 4-H, but he soon decided to show steers. His father told him, “if you want a good one, it’s got to be a red and white face,” and David has been with Herefords ever since. He saved money from his 4-H projects and bought his first registered polled female in 1967. To continually improve his herd, David utilizes artificial insemination (AI).

Dayle Deveining, Fieldon, Ill., has been raising Herefords since 1967, and his dad and brothers have been in the business since 1947. Dayle and his wife of 50 years, Mary Lou, run Tru-La-Da Ranch and have only owned two bulls that weren’t Herefords. The couple markets cattle to the commercial sector through private treaty sales. Norman Starr, NS Polled Herefords, Shaker Heights, Ohio, purchased his first two Herefords in 1954 for $150 each, and he’s been raising Herefords ever since. Norman has a strong focus on performance and has achieved Gold TPR™ (Total Performance Records) status for several years. Tom Morrison, Mt. Gilead, Ohio, grew up in the purebred cattle business. He and his wife, Nikki, operate Hot Iron Enterprises. Having a passion for fitting, exhibiting and marketing cattle led Tom down the road of a lifetime full of friendships and experiences. Tom has worked sale and show cattle for several of the reputable outfits in the industry. It is through dedication, loyalty and years

of genetic innovation that Tom has succeeded as a 50-year breeder. Jim Curry, JC Cattle Co., Norman, Ind., started in the cattle business with a 4-H heifer in 1953. After winning the Jackson County Fair two years in a row, he was hooked. Orville Kuhlman, George Ellis and Harold Younger were big influences in his Hereford operation. Jim bought Herb Bradners herd in 1968 and has utilized AI to build cow families. Jim’s advice for younger generations is start with the best heifer you can afford. He says, “Take care of your cows, and they will take care of you.” William Norris, WCN Polled Herefords, Burkesville, Ky., has been an AHA member since 1965. His first purchase actually dates back to 1961 when he bought his first heifer as a member of the junior association. Bill has been breeding registered Hereford cattle for 56 years on the Cumberland River family farm near Burkesville in south-central Kentucky. Performance testing was initiated in the mid-1960s, and the herd is currently recognized as a Gold TPR herd by the AHA.

Hereford Hall of Fame, Merit Inductees Honored T

he American Hereford Association (AHA) recognized two Hereford breeders who have committed their lives to the Hereford breed Oct. 27 at the Hereford Honoree Reception during the AHA Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo. Lester Schafer, Buffalo Lake, Minn., and Byron Bayers, Twin Bridges, Mont., were inducted into the Hereford Hall of Fame, which recognizes breeders who have dynamically influenced the direction and advancement of the Hereford breed. “We congratulate both of these men for the impact they have made on the Hereford breed,” says Jack Ward, AHA chief executive officer. “Their dedication to the breed is inspiring and I am honored to induct them into the Hereford Hall of Fame.” Schafer was also honored with the Century Breeder award, which recognizes Hereford breeders who have stood the test of time and families who have been dedicated to raising Herefords for 100 years. Also during the reception, Eddie Sims, Elgin, Okla., and Dwayne Dietz, Billings, Mont., were inducted into the Hereford Hall of Merit. These

inductees are not necessarily Hereford breeders but have, in their own ways, greatly influenced the Hereford breed and the cattle industry. “Eddie and Dwayne are great friends of the Hereford breed, and the AHA is honored to induct them into the Hereford Hall of Merit,” Ward says.

Lester Schafer Lester Schafer was raised on the farm where he currently resides. He graduated from Buffalo Lake High School in 1944 and went on to serve in the military in 1945, where he was a member of the Army of Occupation in Germany after World War II. He was discharged from the military in 1947 and attended the University of Minnesota-St. Paul, where he graduated with a degree in animal husbandry. The registered Hereford herd Schafer runs was originally started by his aunt and uncle in 1917. The farm received century farm status in 2000. Schafer purchased a scale and began collecting weaning weights

on calves in 1960. When the AHA established the Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program a few years later, he was one of the first to sign up. Throughout the years, he has remained active in the Minnesota Hereford Association, the Minnesota Hereford Breeders and the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association. Schafer served as the secretary for the Minnesota Hereford Association for 25 years and has been inducted into the Minnesota Hereford Breeders Hall of Fame and the Minnesota Livestock Hall of Fame. He and his wife, Kathleen, have four children — Mary, Kala, Laurie and John. The couple have spent their entire lives farming and ranching on the same farm where Schafer grew up.

Byron Bayers Byron Bayers has spent almost all of his 80 years involved with the Hereford breed. Bayers Hereford Ranch was established in 1918 and is the oldest continuous running Hereford herd in the state of Montana. The original herd was primarily polled and was gradually transitioned to horned cattle until polled Hereford influence was brought back in the late 1990s. After graduating from the University of Montana in 1952, Bayers served as an officer in the United States Air Force before returning to the ranch in 1955 after he married his wife, Pauline. He served as president of the Montana Hereford Association in 1958, 1960 and 1970 and was elected president of the AHA in 1976. Bayers Hereford Ranch was a member of the Montana Beef Performance Association and a charter member of the AHA’s Whole Herd TPR program.

In the ‘60s and early ’70s, he judged at almost every major Hereford show in the U.S. including the National Western Stock Show, the Chicago International, Fort Worth, Houston and Phoenix. Bayers was given the University of Montana’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 1976 and was inducted into the Montana State Fair Pioneer Hall of Fame in 1981. In 2008 he received the Canadian Ambassador Award from the Canadian Hereford Association. In 1966 he and his family established Hereford America. The paper is currently mailed to every state and seven countries.

Eddie Sims After graduating with a degree in animal science from Oklahoma State University, Eddie Sims started his career in the Hereford breed as a fieldman for the American Polled Hereford Association. Since then, he has dedicated his life to promoting Hereford cattle. He established National Cattle Services

in 1968 and quickly became one of the industry’s leading auctioneers. Through National Cattle Services, he has sold and managed purebred cattle sales in 44 states and seven Canadian provinces. As an auctioneer and sale manager, Sims has been instrumental in influencing the value and quality of Hereford cattle for the past 50 years. Along with his wife, Ruth, he helped to found the Junior Hereford Association of Oklahoma (JHAO). He, Ruth and their children and grandchildren are active in both the National Junior Hereford Association and the JHAO. Sims is quick to volunteer his auctioning services to help raise money for junior activities and scholarships. His commitment to the Mile High Night Sale in Denver has benefitted the Hereford Youth Foundation of America.

Dwayne Dietz After graduating from Kansas State University, Dwayne Deitz began his career as a fieldman for Drovers Journal. He then transitioned to a fieldman

position for the Western Livestock Journal in 1969, where he visited many ranches and traveled to many cattle sales throughout the United States. After a five-year stint as a fieldman for the American Angus Association, Dietz became a fieldman for the AHA in 1979. His territory covered Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and parts of Alberta, Canada. It was during his years at the AHA that he became recognized as one of the best cattle marketers in the country. His passion and excitement for the Hereford breed was infectious. His commitment to serving those around him has influenced industry professionals across the country. After retiring from the AHA in 1992, Deitz began promoting and selling Herefords and has been instrumental in helping several Hereford breeders begin their herds. In 2006 he began selling commercial advertising for the Western Ag Reporter in Billings, Mont., where he still works today. Deitz and his wife, Janet, have six children and eight greatgrandchildren.

Hereford Youth Awarded in Inaugural

NJHA Fed Steer Shootout H

ereford youth gained invaluable cattle feeding and industry education experience through the inaugural National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) Fed Steer Shootout. “We are proud of the growth of our junior program and the benefits it brings to our younger breeders,” says Jack Ward, American Hereford Association executive vice president. “Over the years, the NJHA has had a strong focus on leadership and education. We are excited to offer an opportunity for our junior membership to become more directly involved with the beef industry outside of the showring.” In its first year, 29 youth from 11 states entered 72 steers in the Fed Steer Shootout program. Participants estimated feed yard performance and

carcass merit, and then compared the information to actual performance data. They also had the opportunity to measure and compare the profitability of their animals during the contest. The steers were fed at Gregory Feedlots in Tabor, Iowa, in partnership with David Trowbridge and the Gregory Feedlots. The Hereford Research Foundation sponsored $5,000 in cash awards and Anderson Bean Boot Co. provided handcrafted boots for winners. Program sponsors include UltraInsights Processing Lab, Inc., GeneSeek®, Allflex USA, Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc. and Zoetis Animal Health. Tava Gustafson, Junction City, Kan., entered the grand champion and highest retail value steer of the first NJHA Fed Steer Shootout.

2017 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Jean Priefert, Fairmont, Neb., was honored as 2017 Hereford Woman of the Year. Pictured (l to r) Suzanne Matheny, Mays Lick, Ky., NHW board member; Jean Priefert; and Donna Riffel, a longtime Hereford friend.

Priefert Named Hereford Woman of the Year J

ean Priefert, of Priefert Farms, Fairmont, Neb., was recognized as Hereford Woman of the Year Oct. 28 during the National Hereford Women (NHW) annual meeting in Kansas City, Mo. Each year the NHW recognizes and honors one woman for her achievements, leadership, dedication and promotion of the Hereford breed. A “die-hard Hereford breeder,” Jean has promoted Hereford cattle, supported Hereford youth and welcomed new breeders to the Hereford family for many years. Jean and her husband, Neil, got their start in the Hereford business with a wedding gift. In the 1950s when they got married, Jean’s parents offered her a choice between a registered polled Hereford cow or an electric automatic washer and dryer — Jean chose the cow and set the foundation for their Hereford operation. While attending numerous shows and sales, Jean saw a vision for a Hereford women’s organization that would serve breeders by promoting the breed and fostering opportunities to support youth programs and provide a

means of fellowship and networking for women in agriculture. Jean was one of the 12 founding members of the National Organization of Poll-ettes. She served on, chaired and co-chaired numerous committees including the ways and means, and cookbook committees. Jean served as

president of the Nebraska Poll-ettes from 1968-1969 and stayed active during the mergers of the women’s Hereford organizations at the national and state levels. “One thing I have counted on with Jean is that she is always willing to lend a helping hand to promote Herefords and beef to the public,” says Melissa McGee Buehler of Valley Creek Ranch in Fairbury, Neb. Jean was instrumental in developing the hospitality booth at the Nebraska State Fair, and at Husker Harvest Days she has helped serve Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) to the public. In her local community, Jean is a 50-year member of the Fairmont Community Church and has held offices in the Fairmont Federated Women’s Club. She continues to serve as the beef editor for Women Involved in Farm Economics’ quarterly newsletter to help educate women in the group about the beef industry. Today, Jean can still be seen at most cattle events in Nebraska and Kansas, talking with new and potential Hereford breeders, and promoting beef to the public. Lori Riffel Hambright of Kanza Cattle & Vineyards, Chapman, Kan., says, “Jean is not one for spotlights, but a steady, loyal supporter who has made big differences that today’s people in agriculture benefit from.”

The Reign in Review: Hereford Nation’s Youth H

ello! My name is Annah Dobson, and I am 19 years old, and the daughter of Roger and Rachelanne Dobson of Johnson Creek, Wis. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, studying agricultural marketing communications with a minor in agricultural business. It’s been just over 365 days since the first time I walked around the showring in Hale Arena. I was about to begin a year full of traveling, excitement and a brand-new level in the Hereford breed. This past year, I have had the opportunity to meet and to learn from many highly recognized breeders and staff members within the American Hereford Association. The national shows and guest appearances were some of the most notable moments during my time as National Hereford Queen. While these people have had a great amount of impact on me, the most rewarding part of my reign was interacting with the youth of this industry. At every show, sale and agricultural event that I attended, the most enthusiastic and eager individuals to talk to were the young members. No matter the age, from pre-peewee to senior, the excitement they displayed for their Hereford cattle was a constant reminder of why I love this breed. At the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Louisville, Ky., I was surrounded by more than 900 other young cattle enthusiasts. Throughout the many events I participated in, I had the pleasure of meeting so many of them from various states across the U.S. I had the opportunity to plan one of these events — the annual Queen’s Tea — at JNHE. During this, I met over 100 young ladies who all shared two common interests, cows and cookies. Together we decorated crown, cow and rose shaped cookies. While we decorated them, I learned about some of their cows, farms and towns and how they wanted to become a princess and the National Hereford Queen someday. Seeing and hearing their desire reminded me of the same dream I had when I was younger. Hereford.org

The second part of JNHE, and the most unforgettable portion of the year, was the pre-peewee showmanship. If you’ve ever had the chance to watch some of the youngest members of our Association in the showring, you will understand why it is such a wonderful part of our week-long event. If you have not had this opportunity, then here is why this is an unforgettable moment of my year. This showmanship class is one of the last events that happens during the JNHE, and I believe the reason is that the best is being saved for last. Every young showman that stepped foot into the ring did so with determination, focus and passion. No matter how big the animals were, these pre-peewees lead them around the ring with great pride. At the end of their class, I got to hand out a prize and take a picture with each and every one of them. Some of these showmen I had met already during the year, and they remembered who I was. I was able to share this moment with pre-peewees from my home state and that meant more to me than they will ever know. While JNHE may have been the longest week of the year, it was definitely the most rewarding. I now see why so many people are encouraged by the youth of this industry. They are some of the brightest and most dedicated people around, and I am so blessed to have met many of them this year. If I could give one lasting piece of advice to any young member, it

would be this: Follow your passion. Don’t let others define you or your circumstances. All you have to do is believe in yourself and go for it. — Annah Dobson 2017 National Hereford Queen

2017 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

“I’m looking forward to the next year serving as the National Hereford Queen,” she says. “As the face of the Hereford breed, there will be many roles to fill, but I’m excited to take it head on. I hope to meet as many Hereford breeders as possible and serve as a positive role model for the youth in our breed.”

A Passion Set on Fire

Embarking on a journey

Abbygail Pitstick begins her journey as the National Hereford Queen. by Kayla Jennings

T

he application had been filed, the interviews were over and the week at the American Royal was coming to an end. While the weight should have been taken off the candidates’ shoulders, the anticipation only built for seven young Hereford enthusiasts in contention for the crown. These young women came from diverse backgrounds, both personally and geographically, but they shared one common goal — gaining the title of National Hereford Queen. An infectious grin and a twinkle in eight-year-old Natalie Pitstick’s eye said it all when Abbygail Pitstick, South Solon, Ohio, was announced and crowned as the 2017-18 National Hereford Queen during the 2017 American Royal National Hereford Show in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 29. In that moment, Abbygail remembers holding back tears after seeing the excitement in her little sister’s eyes and on her mom’s face. She jokingly recalls, “I had to tell myself to ‘hold it together, we have to take pictures!’” The first National Hereford Queen from Ohio is now setting out to inspire many young girls, like her

younger sisters, to chase their dreams with all they have. Abbygail is the 17-year-old daughter of Neil and Elizabeth Pitstick. She also has three younger sisters, Madison, Emma and Natalie. She has been a member of the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) for four years and is currently serving as the Ohio Buckeye Junior Hereford Association president. After she completes her senior year at Miami Trace High School in May, she plans to attend Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio. While there, she will double major in agricultural business and animal science. In the coming year, Abbygail will be a role model to the youth as she serves as the face of the American Hereford Association (AHA). She will travel to all the national shows, as well as advocate for the Hereford breed and agriculture as a whole.

Her family owns and operates a diversified farming operation where they grow corn and soybeans and raise Hereford cattle. When Abbygail is not at school or participating in FFA events, she finds great joy in spending time with her family and helping on the farm. She affectionately remembers her dad sharing stories with her about his childhood raising Hereford cattle. Since his childhood, the family had sold out and focused exclusively on row crops. Abbygail is credited with the reintroduction of Herefords on their farm four years ago. It was her first Hereford heifer that set fire to a passion sure to last Abbygail a lifetime. “When I got into cattle and discovered my passion for it,” she explains. “I knew I found where I needed to be.” Abbygail, along with her two youngest sisters, own and operate Sisters Livestock Co. LLC. They make all the decisions from breeding to nutrition. That responsibility is quite the undertaking for three young girls, but Abbygail enjoys the challenge. In an effort to establish herself as a

young, progressive breeder, Abbygail is artificial insemination (AI) certified and spends countless hours researching best management practices to maintain herd health and development. Their involvement does not end on the farm. Abbygail and her sisters get the opportunity to travel to state and national shows with their cattle each year. This is where Abbygail first became familiar with the NJHA and the queen program. “I had fallen in love with the breed,” she recalls. “When I realized there was a National Hereford Queen, I said to myself, ‘I am going to be her one day.’ I set that goal then.” She saw the influence the queen had on youth, and she knew she wanted to serve in that role. It wasn’t long before Abbygail earned the chance to represent Ohio as its Hereford queen. Her favorite moment as a state queen was the opportunity to interact with the younger girls in the showring. “That is the most rewarding part because you know you are the role model for our youth,” she notes. “That is really important to me because I want to continue building our breed, and getting our youth involved.” As the national queen, she says, “I want to be there and support the youth during their journey in NJHA.” She recognizes the value in growing awareness for the breed and that it starts with the youth. In her reign as queen, she hopes to play an integral part in growing the queen program, as well as other youth activities within states and the country. In addition to her efforts with youth, she looks forward to expanding her network. She remembers the feeling of family that overwhelmed her when she first became involved with the Hereford breed. To her, the road to becoming National Hereford Queen was much more than a contest. This was a life-changing week as she took a step, or two, outside of her comfort zone to foster relationships with friends old and new. “I have so many people supporting me in this journey, and I look forward to meeting even more Hereford breeders from across the country,” she says. Hereford.org

What the future holds Today, Abbygail is a senior in high school who has just experienced a dream come true, but she has even bigger plans for tomorrow. She has aspirations of learning all she can in order to return to the farm and work with her sisters to grow their herd in numbers and quality. “I have really come to love the animal nutrition side because of my experience in the Hereford business,” she explains. “I think that track will be valuable as I grow in Abbygail pictured with her mother, Elizabeth, and her the industry.” sister, Natalie, moments after being named the 2017-18 Although Abbygail is an National Hereford Queen. independent, driven young As the excitement will inevitably begin lady, she credits her motivation to wear off in coming months, Abbygail and success to her family. “Family will says she will never forget the significance always be there for you and mine are of this experience in her life. my biggest role models,” she notes. “It has been quite a journey, “They have had a huge influence on but one that was well worth it.

Dear Hereford Breeders, Welcome to the 112th 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. The Mile High Night sale hosted on the stadium floor is a spectacle to behold. The Hereford breed returned the National Hereford Sale to the stadium floor in 2013 and the five sales since have been the talk of the National Western. We look forward to our sixth sale on the stadium floor. 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 outstanding females for the sale. The Mile High Night affair offers females from the top operations across the country. The “picks” in this year’s sale are uniquely special and offers some rare opportunities only found in a sale of this caliber. 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, the “Mile High Night” promises to be an event for all serious Hereford breeders. We want to thank McDonald Farm, Grand Rapids, Mich., for donating the Lot 1 Foundation Female — Lot 1 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 a great female. Many thanks go to the consignors of the 2018 Mile High Night sale. They are bringing the good ones to the 2018 National Western. I also want to thank the many Hereford volunteers, National Western Stock Show staff, Express Ranch crew along with the Colorado State University and Missouri State University students 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 of seats on the stadium floor.

• It is with great pleasure we offer this heifer as the 2018 HYFA Foundation Donation Female. Honestly, we are truly humbled for the exciting opportunity to donate for such a great cause as the Hereford Youth Foundation of America. • Eve is a powerfully made, stout structured Catapult daughter with explosive rib and stunning design. She is a direct daughter of donor Yasmine, who is known for power, mass and a proven track record. Her EPD profile and phenotype are balanced across the board. We believe that Eve is one of the best we have ever raised, if not the very best. We believe Eve is a very SPECIAL Hereford Female! • Thank you to McDonald Farm for donating this phenomenal heifer calf to highlight the 2018 Mile High Sale on January 13, 2018, in Denver and supporting the Hereford Youth Foundation. • McDonald Farm is retaining 1/2 embryo interest.

Lot 8 — AH JDH Munson 15E ET • This year we are offering you this exciting herd bull prospect from our carload. The rest of the carload will sell January 22 in our annual bull sale at Delaney Herefords. This could be the premier genetic package we have ever offered in the Mile High Sale. Here is a high quality, high performing son of 33Z, who is a full brother to the high seller in the 2016 Mile High Sale. This calf stood out at a young age and has continued to get better every month. He is loaded with muscle, volume and power yet moves smoothly and strides out well. Clean in his makeup, pigmented and homozygous polled, his EPDs show a great birth to yearling spread and outstanding carcass numbers for both REA and MARB. He comes from a long line of very high quality uddered females and his mother is a Dam of Distinction. Not only was his full sister a Denver high seller at $62,500, but she has gone on to be a top producing cow with an outstanding udder. She is pictured here at 27-months of age. Here is a bull that could leave his mark on the breed. • Selling ½ interest and full possession. We will be retaining ½ semen interest.

Excellent birth to yearling spread to go along with high REA and MARB, and to top that off, she is homozygous polled. She comes from generations of some of our top producing cows with high quality udders. Her mother is a Dam of Distinction and raised the pick of our carload in the 2016 Mile High Sale, selling for $20,000 to Dvorak Herefords. She has raised four calves with an average BW ratio of 97.3, WW ratio of 107.9 and her calves have ratios for REA of 104 and MARB of 121. Her maternal grandam is also a Dam of Distinction and was the mother of our 2016 sale topping Mile High heifer at $62,500. She has also consistently produced calves with high REA and MARB to go along with great phenotype. This is a herd building female from the heart of our program. • We will retain one (1) flush to be completed at the buyer’s convenience and the seller’s expense.

• McDonald Farm is sharing the opportunity to purchase one-half interest in one of the most elite and unique young cows in the Hereford breed. Elite in her makeup being so super stout made, wide based and square on all corners. “Big Butt,” as she is referred to, is elegantly made and still so pretty fronted with a picture perfect udder. Unique in her pedigree being that her dam is a full sister to the maternally popular Sooner himself, and her sire is the Homegrown 8Y bull. I feel very privileged to own this great Hereford female! She was bred IVF very successfully in 2017, and I have 10 heifer calves due this spring. Two flushes sold in the 2017 Definitely Different Sale for $16,000. This is an investment opportunity! • Selling one-half interest.

• A special female to say the least. 7010 has all the pieces it takes to make it big time as a show heifer, and a pedigree backed with not only champions, but cow power and performance as well. We raise show heifers that have proven themselves to make it where it matters – in production raising the champions. 7010 will be no exception. • 7010 has a beautiful sweep to her rib cage with plenty of mass and dimension when you get right in behind her. She’s extremely stout made and still remains smooth in her shoulder and feminine up front. • Then study her from the ground up. Huge boned with that perfect show heifer hind leg that sets down on a big, sound foot as you watch her move away from you. • This heifer has it all, and as always, we put in our very best. Flirtatious out did herself with this mating and she isn’t getting any younger. • We couldn’t part with full interest in this female, because of the future we believe she has. We are retaining ½ embryo interest.

• Shameless has been a standout since birth and one of the most unique animals to ever have been born here at FECR. Not only is he unique, but he is also backed by one of the most proven donors in the breed. Full siblings have been extremely successful, hanging multiple national banners, including Who Maker, who was the national champion polled bull at American Royal and Denver, full sisters being named Champion Polled Female at the 2016 JNHE, 2016 Keystone Reserve National Champion, 2017 Houston Supreme Champion, 2017 San Antonio Champion, 2017 American Royal Junior Show Reserve Champion, and countless regional and state champions. Not only do they win but they produce. Full sisters have produced 2016 Denver Reserve National Champion Female, Redemption and 2015 American Royal Reserve Grand Junior Show just to name a few. Plus, the list of high sellers/winners that Who Maker has produced from his limited use has been extraordinary. The list of winners and feature donors that have begun from this same mating is endless. Add width, bone, body and mass to Who Maker without sacrificing extension and soundness and you have Shameless. • Selling ½ interest and ½ possession after show career.

• A great breeding bull prospect – a mating of the no miss donor, Karly, with the exciting Perez Cattle Co. and Upstream Ranch herd sire, NJW Mighty, who was the 2017 NWSS Reserve Grand Champion Bull. This young bull has that extra length combined with unmatched muscle that will advance anyone’s program. He is an extremely good footed young calf with the substance of bone needed in a herd sire.

H Karly 2515 ET — Dam of Lot 15 • Karly is my foundation Hereford female that my family purchased for me to start my Junior National Hereford Assn. membership from Hoffman Ranch. An own daughter of the tremendous donor HH Miss Advance 5139 ET, who has produced over $1 million in progeny sales, Karly is on her way to possibly being her most prolific production daughter to date. She has proven to be a no miss donor no matter who we have mated her to. Her first natural calf sired by Hometown was a many-time champion for me and went on to be named Supreme Champion Bull at the 2016 Black Hills Stock Show, the first Hereford to ever accomplish this feat. He sold through hat sale to George Ochsner & Sons, where is a featured sire. Her son, K Kendrick 551 ET, was the 2016 JNHE Senior Bull Calf Champion as well as the 2017 NWSS and Grand Champion Bull at the 2017 Wyoming State Fair and Nebraska State Fair. He is now a featured herd sire in the Middleswarth Hereford and Ward Hereford ranches in Wyoming.

CHOICE OF BULL PEN • This will be the first Hereford Pen of Bulls I will exhibit in Denver. I am very proud of these flush brothers sired by ECR Who Maker 210 ET, out of Peggy, who was my 2015 junior heifer project. She was a popular division champion at the 2015 JNHE as well as the Supreme Champion Heifer at the Nebraska State Fair junior show. Her first natural calf, K Caliber 602, was the Reserve Spring Calf Bull at the 2017 NWSS and went on to claim my first Grand Champion at the JNHE, when he was named Grand champion bull in Louisville this past summer. These three bulls offer the quality, performance and genetics to advance any program. Be sure to look them up in the Yards prior to sale night.

• Once again we reached into the best of our young female battery for a cow-calf choice lot in the Mile High sale. This pair combines a 2-yearold horned cow by Cracker Jack and her April polled heifer calf by UPS Sensation 2296. • The cow is bred back early AI on May 29, 2017, to MSU TCF Revolution 4R with sexed heifer semen. • This is the ultimate option. Take the cow, Aubrey’s Fuschia, and you’ll have a young female that combines the popular genetics of Cracker Jack, About Time and the national champion H Paula 625 ET. She’s a soggy, sound and functional female with dark red pigment and obviously great fertility being bred back early. The 2296 heifer calves are taking the showring by storm, so if you choose the heifer calf, Aubrey’s Magnolia, you have a show prospect now for JNHE and a cow in the making that goes back to some of the best bulls in the business, 028X and Domino 3027.

This is Hereford efficiency at its best! • Sire 5044 is on his way to being one of the breeds best for fast growth and CHB while keeping birth weight down and udder scores up. His 35 bull calves had an average wean ratio of 104 in the Churchill herd. 20 bulls sell in the Churchill Bull Sale that are 3/4 brothers to Rough Rider and they are an outstanding group! • 5044’s cow family dominated the recent Holden female sale with his mother, grandmother and full sister being the three top sellers. • We believe Rough Rider is like his famous grandsire, Sensation, in that he got the best genes from both parents. These are the kind of bulls that make a lasting impact. • Selling 1/2 interest, 1/2 possession and 1/2 semen sales in Rough Rider.

• It was a hard decision to let this bred heifer go, but when Joe said he needed a damn good bred for the Denver sale, we decided to open the gate and send our best one. Danica has always been a standout in and out of the ring and with her pedigree we weren’t surprised. Her dam was reserve division at Junior Nationals and Hometown needs no introduction. We love her added look and balance in addition to her stoutness and maternal cow power. The last Hometown we sold in Denver ended up in Buck’s donor pen and we think this one is as good or better. Take advantage of this opportunity to own a female with unlimited potential. • Imagine the possibilities of her calf sired by our lead herd sire JDH Cracker 26C who was a crowd favorite and our pick of the entire Delaney offering. We are in love with his ability to add hip shape, bone, squareness and look. • Retaining the right to two (2) successful flushes (minimum six (6) embryos per flush) at the seller’s expense and buyer’s convenience.

Belle’s Udder

• Compton is a full brother to the 2017 NWSS Supreme Champion and Grand Champion Horned Bull, Belle Air. This is a great opportunity to turn out an exceptional individual that boasts the genetic profile and EPDs that today’s industry demands. As was the case with Belle Air, this bull was born light, 70 lb. act. BW, while still maintaining excellent performance. He also ranks in the top 5% in both MARB and $CHB. Phenotypically, Compton is as complete of a bull as we’ve raised and his dam is an elite uddered 3-year-old, Outcross x Sooner/ Gabrielle daughter. And just like Belle Air, he offers outstanding pigment, large testicles, a great disposition and awesome hair. We plan to use him heavily in our herd as we expect him to sire elite show heifers and replacement females, and the type of bulls commercial cattlemen want. • Selling ½ interest and ½ possession after his show career.

HEIFER CALF PREGNANCY — YOU PICK DONOR AND SIRE • A unique opportunity to acquire a guaranteed heifer calf pregnancy by the bull of the buyer’s choice from four of the top donors in the Sierra Ranch herd. Offering a buyer’s choice pregnancy from these legendary donors.

HH Miss Advance 5139R ET — Donor dam

RPH Maiden 95T — Donor dam

• HH Miss Advance 5139R ET, who first topped the 2010 Holden Female Sale at $40,000 to Haxton Hoffman. We selected her from Hoffman’s 2013 Fall Sale at $175,000 which was a breed tying record sales price at that time and she has since proven her worth time and again, as is evident in the progeny and descendants that represented her in the 2017 Western Treasures Sale offering. She is one of the very top cows in the breed and combines curve bending EPDs with tremendous eye appeal, udder quality, and structure. She has already produced almost $1 million in progeny sales including the $180,000 new record selling female for the Hereford breed that sold in Hoffman’s 2014 Fall sale. Her daughters are some of the very top females in our herd and are across the breed, and she has sons working in many top registered herds across the U.S. Her impact will be felt in the Hereford breed for many generations to come. 5139 records impressive average progeny ratios of 5 at 99.2 for BW, 4 at 104.8 for WW, 3 at 102 for YW, and 45 at100.6 for REA.

• RPH Maiden 95T, who not only produced C ETF Wildcat 4248 ET, the popular Grand Champion Polled Bull at the 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show and division winner at the 2015 National Western Stock Show, but more recently in the fall of 2016, produced a $77,000 heifer calf and a $44,000 bred heifer. 95T was the top selling bred heifer in the dispersion of the Frank Rodgers herd, where she posted an individual ratio of 163 for Marbling. 95T was a feature donor in the 2014 Colyer Hereford Female Production Sale, selling for $18,000. She is one powerfully constructed female with added everything… bone, butt, body and look. Her progeny at Colyer and Iron Lake are something to see and we can’t wait to get ours’ on the ground. This power donor combines a tremendous EPD profile along with the phenotype to show at the highest levels and she has worked to multiple sires.

Churchill Lady 037X — Donor dam H Raylee 2090 — Donor dam • H Raylee 2090 ET, who is a direct daughter of the $175,000 5139R and is among the ranch favorites in the donor herd at Sierra. Thick, stout and powerful are the basics in this unique female’s build. 2090 is wide based, heavy boned, big hipped and powerfully constructed, while still offering the length of spine, and functional traits needed to be a high-quality brood cow or donor option. Her impressive profile highlights her feminine features while showcasing her volume and center body dimension that is further complemented by a prototypical udder. 2090 posts impressive progeny ultrasound ratios for IMF of 4 at 112.

34  Mile High Night • National Western Stock Show

• Churchill Lady 037X, who was our $75,000 selection from the 2015 Churchill World Class Female sale and has proven her worth since, producing a $62,500 daughter, Churchill Lady 579C ET, who sold to Devon Lockhart and a $12,000 flush to Will Iager from the Mile High Eve Sale in Denver. 037X posts 4 at 98.3 for BW, 3 at 103 for WW, 2 at 104.5 for YW, and 9 at 104.8 for REA.

• Great Opportunity to add value to your show string and donor pen! The marketing homework has been done for you! PUGH GGSC Rose PE1 is the full sister of GGSC Carlee 6B. Carlee was no stranger to the back drop and this one has all the same potential. Their dam, SHF Coyotte Done, or as we call her “Caroline,” was Champion Hereford in the junior show at NAILE in 2013. She and Carlee were Champion Cow/Calf Pair at the 2014 JNHE. Carlee won her Division in the open show at the NAILE National Hereford Show on her first outing. Half interest in Carlee was sold in Denver for $25,000 where she was Reserve Grand in the NWSS junior show. Carlee was also Champion Cow/Calf Pair at the 2016 JNHE. 6 maternal sibs to this heifer have averaged $28,000. • This heifer is long bodied, good in her lines, extended in her make up and has a powerful square hip. You will appreciate her true dimension and overall maternal look, while still having that exceptional show ring presence. Buy this deep cherry red sweetheart and after success in the show ring put her to work making money for you selling embryos or producing award winning cattle. • Heifer is entered in NWSS. Buy and show with confidence. Photo not available at catalog time. See Grimmel Girls Website and Facebook for photos.

Hereford Mom Diaries You Do You Nearly five years ago to the date, I opened up a portrait photography studio in our rural Illinois hometown. I expanded my agricultural photography business to include weddings, newborns, families and seniors. A studio seemed like the next logical step for the business. The excitement leading up to the studio opening was incredible. It truly made the business seem “real.” Truly, for the first few years, it was fun. But what have I learned throughout those five years? I don’t use the studio for photography much. Don’t get me wrong — business has been great. But actual “studio photography?” It’s just not my thing. I would much prefer capturing images of families and individuals in their natural settings on their farm or ranch, or beautiful outdoor locations. I was actually steering clients away from studio photography. This tendency resulted in maybe a handful of actual studio sessions each 12-month period. But I was still paying for the space the entire year. My husband, Craig, has always been the practical one of the couple. Sometimes I love it; most of the time I don’t. When he first brought up the idea of closing the studio a year ago, I was — ahem — less than receptive to the idea. “What will the people in town think? They’ll think I just ‘couldn’t cut it,’ even though that’s not even close to the truth. The rumor mill will go crazy. How will that make me look?” He reminded me of how much more profitable my business would be without the overhead of a studio I rarely used. He’s so practical and reasonable. After Craig and I visited, he stepped out of the room — likely to give me time to think and to cool down a bit. I sought out the counsel of my Bible study friends, who always speak truth with love.

| by Christy Couch Lee They first took pity on Craig, as they knew what position he was likely in. They reminded me we needed to do what was best for the business and our family. The rumor mill? Well, did their thoughts really matter to me? Did their opinions have any effect on my business or my family? I came to terms with the fact that Craig and my friends were right. And after much prayer, the studio closed on Oct. 31 of this year. This entire experience has taught me many things that extend far beyond photography. How often do we worry about the thoughts of others more than we worry about what is best for our families? We “need” that new trailer because how would it look to pull in with that old thing? We “need” to wear the latest trend in the ring because what would people think of us in last year’s style? We “need” to win at everything, sometimes at all costs, because what would people think if we didn’t? It’s a never-ending cycle, and it’s exhausting. I have begun making a real, focused effort to ignore those voices in my head that tell me what I “should be.” What our family “should be.” Believe me, I’m by no means perfect. It’s a constant work in progress with help from Craig and my closest gal pals. But it’s oh-so important. What is right for someone else is not necessarily right for us. We must do “us.” Whatever that looks like and means. For me, it means capturing memories for incredible folks the way I always have, without a studio. It means our family doing what fits into our budget and works for our family’s lives, even if it may not look the same for someone else in a similar situation. Maybe, for me, it means splurging more often on Starbucks. Because, hey, no more studio overhead. Right? Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill.

Low-Stress Cattle Handling Pays Seasoned stockmen highlight cattle handling concepts and tools to maximize cattle operations. by Kayla Jennings

O

nce the dust has settled and the workday has come to an end, thoughts of how to increase efficiency begin spinning through many producers’ heads. The evening promotes time to weigh options, to make business decisions and to think about how to maximize the operation while still being good stewards of the livestock and land. Today’s progressive cattlemen are employing new technologies all the time to achieve that goal.

Ideas of artificial insemination (AI), embryo transfer (ET), flushing donor cows and other technologies surface as the perfect avenue for breeders looking to get ahead. However, there is a challenge — handling the cattle in a safe and effective way to capitalize on those technologies. Reinaldo Cooke, Ph.D., and his team of researchers at Oregon State University conducted a study analyzing the effects of temperament and animal handling

yielded calves with a 36 lb. advantage in weaning weight

on fertility. In the 2012 study, 433 multiparous, lactating black baldie cows were sampled for blood and evaluated for temperament. Once the cows received a score by averaging the data collected, they were separated into an adequate and aggressive temperament group. The study concluded cows with an adequate temperament had a 6% higher pregnancy rate, as well as a 7% higher calving rate. Additionally, those cows yielded calves with a 36 lb. advantage in weaning weight. When the dust settles, those numbers mean more profit for the producer. All that to say, increased emphasis on proper handling techniques pays off in more ways than one.

Stockmanship is key Everyone has his or her own theory on the best way to achieve low-stress handling via advanced systems and techniques. However, seasoned stockmen Ron Gill, Ph.D., Extension specialist for Texas AgriLife Extension and associate department head for Extension at Texas A&M University, and Curt Pate, veteran stockmanship clinician, argue it all starts with the handler using just a few simple principles early in cattle development. In addition to his role with Texas A&M, Gill and his wife have a cattle operation near Decatur, Texas, and for the past decade Gill has presented stockmanship and stewardship programs at clinics across the country. In an effort to keep things as simple as possible, he uses five principles of cattle behavior that, if they are fully understood, will allow individuals to improve their stockmanship skills. These principles are cattle want to see you, they want to go around you, they want to be with and go toward other cattle, they want to remove pressure and they can only have one main thought at a time. Similarly, Curt Pate and his wife have a small operation in Ryegate, Mont., and for more than a decade, he has been conducting Hereford.org

demonstrations to promote proper horse and cattle handling around the nation. He teaches three main concepts: driving, drawing and maintaining pressure. While the principles are worded differently, the simplistic ideas are a common denominator between both. Effective stockmanship involves the ability to initiate movement in cattle and to manage its direction or flow. When it comes to moving cattle, Gill says to think about it Training cattle to handle properly begins in the early stages of development. as guiding them using pressure to By using proper positioning, While driving and drawing are indicate where they should go. The guiding the cattle becomes much the two main concepts related to types of pressure emphasized by Pate easier and less time consuming. moving cattle, maintaining their are the exact same as those Gill uses Gill says to remember, “Where the attention and rewarding them for when managing the five behavior nose goes, the body will follow.” success is critical.

are trying to get cattle to move down a chute, we may have to give them a split second to think about it before moving forward. Slowing down enough to let them think is important.” Raising children to do the right thing and to behave begins from the time they are babies. Similarly, Gill and Pate note training cattle and promoting positive human interaction begins early in development.

The thing I think we all have missed is it is not about a tub, a box or a Z on the ground, it is about how well you prepare the cattle to handle before you get them to any facility; and that is where we need to keep focus.

— Curt Pate

“If you take the time to train them during the weaning and development phase, then they will be trained for life,” Gill explains. “As long as we handle them correctly from then on, they are not going to become untrained, so that is why we want to start early.” Pate stresses the idea of continuing to handle cattle correctly and to reward them throughout their life. With producers bringing cattle into the chute more and more today, even the most docile cattle can become chute sour. He says they begin to associate the chute with an uncomfortable situation and, therefore, resent the space. He advises producers, especially in early development, to allow the cattle to run through the chute without any treatment a few times periodically. This approach prevents them from stalling as much when it comes time to work them. According to Gill and Pate, employing these concepts on an operation can make handling cattle more enjoyable for the cattle and

the producer and can promote safety and increased profit in the long-term. Gill notes several studies indicating a relationship between low-stress handling, fertility and average daily gain. These concepts may take slightly more time on the front end, but they save time and money in the long term exponentially. In addition to stockmanship, there has been an increased emphasis on facility design to prompt low-stress handling. While there are a number of systems that have the potential to achieve that goal, Pate encourages producers not to lose sight of the bigger picture. “The thing I think we all have missed is it is not about a tub, a box or a Z on the ground, it is about how well you prepare the cattle to handle before you get them to any facility; and that is where we need to keep focus,” he explains. However, there is value in using a system well to increase efficiency. Gill says, “You can make any system work better if you handle cattle correctly, and any great system a mess if you don’t.”

Applying a system Travis Meteer is an Extension educator with an emphasis in beef production research and herd management. He offices at the University of Illinois Research Center, and he says individuals at the center have the opportunity to handle cattle more frequently, to conduct a variety of studies, than a typical seedstock or commercial operation. “That can be good and bad,” he explains. “As you continue to handle cattle they get used to certain things. You wear down on their flight zone that can present challenges.” According to Meteer, those challenges come in a variety of forms. Some cattle become so docile they, in turn, are dull to pressure. Additionally, with larger research projects, he says the center will have handlers with a wide range of backgrounds. At the university, some graduate students assisting

with studies may have grown up in production agriculture, while some are considered beginners in handling livestock. With their system, Meteer says it is easier to maintain safety of all individuals involved, regardless of their skill level. However, he does not discount the value in reading livestock at all times to maintain safety for the stock and employees. The university’s main cattle facility is a tub-snake with a hydraulic squeeze chute. In addition, its calving facility is a self-fabricated system with a selfcatching headgate. It has swinging custom panels that allow cattle in and swing out if a cow goes down. The chute has proven extremely beneficial to the handlers, and Meteer says it would be fairly costeffective for producers to duplicate on their operations. The main facility is modeled after Temple Grandin’s research based on the concept that cattle like to go back to where they came from and to move in subtle circles. “The system we have gives us the flexibility of whether you are experienced or not, you can handle cattle through our system,” he explains. This system obviously works for the unique situation at the research center, but Meteer stresses every operation requires different systems to reach its goals. When determining which facility to employ, Meteer advises producers to consider the cost, the frequency of use, the handler’s skillset and how portable the system needs to be. “For the producers that I consult with, I advise them to investigate the Bud Box system as well as others,” he notes. “Cattlemen are very handy. They like to build their own. They are very creative and constructive. If they can construct it themselves, a lot of them like to go that route.” For example, commercial producers may just be getting cattle in and sending them to the sale barn, so there is not a need for an elaborate system. However, he says commercial producers or Hereford.org


On your farm Hereford breeders are among some of the most progressive in the industry. With that, it is no surprise many of them are actively incorporating some of these concepts and also building tools for handling on their farms. Kevin Bennett owns and operates Sandrock Ranch Herefords in Benton, Wis. The business began with purebred Herefords in the 1950s and is still a purebred Hereford cow-calf operation today. Sandrock Ranch Herefords is part of the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) and employs technology like AI often. Bennett says the ranch AI’d approximately 260 cows last year for the program, and it would not have been possible without its breeding box. “If it wasn’t for that box I would not have gotten involved in the young sire evaluation program,” he notes. “With Hereford cows docility, it was a struggle to get them into the chute the minute their hoof hit the floor. Once we went to the breeding box with no floor in it, it made all the difference in the world. I would never go back to a regular chute again — no way.” Hereford.org

PHOTO COURTESY OF RON GILL

progressive purebred breeders who are trying to use technologies have to have the facilities that meet their expectations. Furthermore, he advises not to discount the return on investment on proper stockmanship, with or without facilities. “When you think about the safety associated with cattle handling, knowing how to operate a facility and work with cattle in a low-stress environment pays off.” At the end of the day, Meteer says, “Your system has to fit you and your operation. I don’t feel like there is a one size fits all. If you look at the big picture, it has to be something that you are comfortable with that allows you to get the most out of your cattle, and allows you to be safe when deploying those technologies you are looking to improve your herd with.”

Reading the cattle to determine their temperament is a necessary step when safely working cattle.

The box is completely dark with plywood on all sides. The only light coming in is from the back and a small area at the bottom on the front gate. The boxes are typically built wider at the top and narrower at the bottom to conform to the body of cattle, and it has no floor. The boxes can be easily made portable with the installation of wheels and a hitch. The breeding box creates a more positive experience for cattle, and Bennett attributes that to his ability to work through more cattle with varying temperaments in less time while maintaining safety. With the added efficiency, without taking away from proper stockmanship, Bennett says he feels this tool may prompt producers to handle their cattle more often and to use more technologies. “Anybody that is going to AI a lot of cows needs a breeding box,” he notes. Bennett constructed his box with a couple of modifications to allow for more light at the bottom of the front gate and a small door on the top to check tags and tattoos. He also has a waiting pen just outside the box for the next cow, and Bennett says it is a nice addition for Hereford cattle specifically. It helps maintain their attention, and they are ready to move in as soon as the door opens. “Herefords have to think about where they are going,” he notes. “They are slower, that is the docility in them, and I would not trade that for the world.” Curt Pate agrees Hereford cattle are more docile and, therefore, more apt to learn how to go through these facilities quietly with the right training. He says anybody can handle Hereford cattle since

they allow for more mistakes from the handler. “Hereford cattle are the kind of cattle that do not react,” Pate explains. “They think their way through pressure. They can learn to go through a facility with no problem at all because they are docile animals.” Like with any other breed of cattle, low-stress environments promote average daily gain and, therefore, profit. “I have never seen a thin, gentle Hereford cow,” Pate jokes. “They really do well if they are not scared. That is what is so nice about the docile quality of Hereford cattle. They can really put their head down and eat because they are not afraid.” The docility of the breed and the return on investment should serve as encouragement to Hereford breeders to adopt the new concepts and tools available today. With the right stockmanship strategies and facilities that fit the needs of an operation, Hereford breeders will only continue to improve the breed as a whole. “The rest of the world, horses, dogs and the pet world, love working with their animals, and they are really proud of how they behave and handle,” Pate emphasizes. “I don’t understand why we can’t take pride in the way our cattle handle also. It is not only a profit thing, but it is a pride thing for your ranch when we talk about how easily your cattle handle in different environments because of how important it is today.” Editor’s Note: Producers seeking more information regarding proper stockmanship or upcoming clinics can visit EffectiveStockmanship.com, CurtPateStockmanship.com or StockmanshipAndStewardship.org.

Winter Hay Considerations The type of hay feeder used can affect hay waste. by Steve Tonn, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator, beef.unl.edu

H

ay feeding time has started, and feeding big round bales sure makes the job easier. Large bale feeding systems are designed to minimize labor but not waste. Most producers feed hay in some kind of feeder, but did you know the type of feeder can affect how much hay is wasted? Feeding hay in a rack or a round bale feeder limits the opportunity animals have to trample or soil hay and reduces waste substantially. Minimal feeding losses occur where hay is fed with a rack or bale feeder that forces the animal to turn its head when backing away from the feeder. When animals can back straight out of a feeder, they can pull

out large chunks of hay that drop on the ground and are lost as feed. Research at the University of Nebraska and Michigan State University has shown feed waste with the following: • Cones: 3.3%

• Ring feeders with a skirt: 5.9% • Racks: 9% • Trailers: 11.1% • Cradle feeders: 14.2%

Cone feeders are more expensive, but when you figure the amount and value of the hay that is saved, cone feeders may be worth the extra cost — especially if your feeders have no skirts.

Hay loss and waste can also be reduced by how often you feed. Daily feeding will force cattle to eat hay they might otherwise refuse, overconsume, trample and waste. Cattle waste less hay when the amount fed is limited to what is needed each day. Twenty-five percent more hay is needed when a four-day supply is fed with free access. Cows will overconsume if hay is fed free choice. Long feeders are less effective than round or square feeders because boss animals will push others back by walking down the long feeder, interrupting other cows’ feeding and reducing their intake. While some losses will always occur, keeping losses to a minimum can reduce feed costs, resulting in more efficient use of forages and increasing the profitability of the cow herd enterprise. The Noble Foundation has an easy-to-use spreadsheet to help you calculate hay wastage, noble.org/ag/tools/livestock/ hay-ring/.

Hay wrap, digestible or harmful? North Dakota State University has studied the potential for digestive problems in cattle that consume net wrap, plastic twine, biodegradable twine and sisal twine. This research shows that after 14 days net wrap and biodegradable twine are not broken down in the rumen. Seventy percent of sisal twine breaks down in the rumen. A little twine or net wrap in the rumen may not be damaging, but as the cow accumulates it over time, problems could arise. It might pay to take a little more time to remove all the net wrap or twine.

Test your hay for nutrients Finally, do you know the nutrient content of your hay or forages? Testing forages lets you determine their best and most economical use in a ration. Forage testing helps you to allocate higher quality forage to high producing livestock (i.e. a growing calf) and poorer quality forages to animals at lower levels of nutritional needs (i.e. a dry cow).
