here’s no better female than the F1 baldie,” says Matt McKinney, Bently Agrowdynamics cattle operations manager. “The maternal aspects of the baldie female are unbeatable. She will work harder than any other cow.” McKinney joined the staff at Bently Agrowdynamics, Minden, Nev., in 2001. At that time the cow herd was 100% straight Angus-based. Wanting to add hybrid vigor and improve the maternal characteristics of the herd, he incorporated Hereford genetics into the Bently breeding program. He credits the addition of Hereford genetics and the effect of heterosis for improved growth and livability of calves and fertility of the cow herd. “The calf’s livability in a F1 is extremely high, the calves want to get up and suck right away,” he explains. Since Bently has implemented a crossbreeding program and incorporated Hereford genetics, its calf crop has seen an increased average weaning weight of 75 lb.

The Bently herd Today the Bently herd is roughly 1,800 head of Angus and Hereford-based mother cows. McKinney says the herd is about 75% black and 25% black whiteface. The bull battery includes Angus, Hereford and Charolais bulls. The Bently breeding plan is to use

“Hereford is the best choice for commercial producers who have used a straight-Angus breeding program.” — Matt McKinney

After working nine years in the seedstock industry, Matt McKinney joined the staff at Bently as cattle operations manager. Because of his experience during a college internship at the K74 Hereford ranch in Oklahoma, he decided to incorporate Hereford genetics into the Bently breeding program.

Hereford bulls on the Angus cows, Angus bulls on the baldie cows and Charolais bulls as a terminal cross on the older cows. Cattle summer on private irrigated and Forest Service-owned high mountain meadows in both California and Nevada. The company also manages cattle on the high desert and mountains of the Pine Nut range in a combination of private ground and Bureau of Land Management managed lands. Bently winters the herd in California west of Red Bluff and near the ranch headquarters in Minden, Nev.

Calving season starts in mid-January and the calves are weaned in September.

Finding bulls McKinney says he thinks the Hereford breed has really progressed. “Hereford genetics have transitioned from big and tall with no guts to now more moderate with improved carcass merit. Hereford breeders have also fixed the negative issues that were at one time associated with the breed such as prolapse and cancer eye.” He also is glad to see an increasing number of Hereford bulls available, but he thinks there is still a demand for Hereford breeders who are committed to producing bulls that meet the needs of Western commercial producers. Most herd bulls are kept for five years. With this practice Bently keeps a young bull battery that is aggressive and not too big, McKinney explains. continued on page 18...

by Craig Huffhines, executive vice president chuffhin@hereford.org

Animal Activism in Our Backyard Have you ever stopped to think about whether or not you are producing your crops or raising your livestock in the right way? If you have been in business a long time or perhaps even for generations, the reason you are still in business is that you ask that question every day. You have adopted new technology that made you more productive, you have evaluated the sustainability of your land resource, and you have looked for ways to make your cattle more efficient and more profitable. As a beef producer, you studied genetics and pedigrees, you adopted beef quality

assurance measures, and you were genuinely interested in the well-being of your livestock because it meant the difference between feeding your family and remaining in business or not. This hard work and dedication are driven by a passion for our business and doing things the right way. There are those in this country who want to argue that we are not producing our product in the right way. In fact, they’ll argue we’re not producing “good food.” Recently, I attended an American Royal board meeting. The business men and women serving on the board

are bankers, lawyers, owners and chief executive officers (CEOs) of major health companies, small independent business owners, and retired CEOs of some of the largest food manufacturers in the country. Most of them have agriculture or food production and distribution roots. They have a passion for preserving agrarian values, and they annually battle Kansas City politicians for continued support. At the recent meeting, a handful of businessmen proposed developing a not-for-profit foundation with the mission of developing standards and

an educational forum for both livestock producers and farmers that will address the proper production of “good food.” On more than one occasion, I heard the terms “good food” versus “bad food.” Hearing the use of these terms was unsettling. I sat quietly listening to the proposal as one of the directors spoke of the “locally born and raised” movement, the natural/organic movement and several concepts that appeared to be rooted back to animal rights organizations’ demands on animal handling and care. My first thought was that some of the radical demands from leftist environmental and animal welfare groups are beginning to influence our own community leaders. There was a bit of uneasiness about the proposal being discussed, and one of the elder statesmen on the board and a past CEO of former Farmland Industries said, “You know, we need to be very careful that we don’t offend our livestock association customers such as the American Hereford, Angus and Charolais Associations as we discuss these guidelines and strategies.” He looked straight at me and asked my opinion. My answer was, “The breeders of cattle that represent all of the beef breeds that participate in the American Royal are some of the most dedicated and hard working people I have ever met in my life. They stay up all night calving heifers, they ritually care for their livestock, sometimes feeding in sub-zero weather, and they slave all summer producing feed to get them through winter. Their practices are profit-driven, which happen to be synonymous with excellent animal welfare. They all believe that they produce a ‘good food’ product.” I then asked, “What is the difference between “good food” and “bad food,” and who gets to define those standards?” One of the presenters explained that good food is a movement that began in Europe, settled in on the East coast and is migrating across the country. The concept addresses the wholesomeness, freshness and safety of our food supply. A warning flag was raised, and I requested to serve on the committee that’s working on the concept. Again, I ask: Do you believe that you are raising your livestock in the right way? Are you humane with your husbandry practices? Are you conscientious about the end product that will eventually enter the food chain once the animal leaves your place? We had better be ready to defend our practices or conform to the wishes of others. I’m not convinced that the “others” prescription for “good food” production produces any more wholesome, safe or higher quality food. I’m certain it could raise the cost of food by limiting efficiency. My goal is to get into these discussions and defend many of our practices with sound science. You will likely begin to hear these discussions in your backyard, if you have not already. I recommend you get involved in the debate as well. HW www.hereford.org

What's New?

“What’s New?” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about Hereford happenings. You can also sign up for Hereford eNews, a weekly electronic newsletter from the American Hereford Association (AHA). Send an e-mail to eNews@hereford.org to subscribe. Archived issues are posted at Hereford.org.

New data online The Spring 2010 Sire Summary, published by the American Hereford Association (AHA), is available in print and online at Hereford.org. A total of 2,214 sires are listed in the summary. There are 938 proven sires, 796 young sires and 181 reference sires from the National Reference Sire Program. The balance of the sires can be found in the carcass section, which is a list of the 783 highest accuracy bulls for carcass traits. Sire entries not only include expected progeny differences (EPDs) but also $Profit Indexes for cattlemen who prefer to look at one number rather than many to identify the most profitable genetics for their production scenario. The four indexes are Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$), Brahman Influence Index (BII$), Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) and Calving EZ Index (CEZ$). In the summary preface are explanations of these indexes and a wealth of other knowledge to help users understand the listed sire information. To request a sire summary, contact AHA staff at 816-842-3757.

Gold TPR breeders announced Eighty-nine dedicated Hereford breeders achieved Gold TPRTM (Total Performance Records) status for spring 2010. The Gold TPR Breeder recognition is presented to progressive Hereford breeders who have measured traits and collected and promptly submitted performance data at all levels of production.

“The reason the Gold TPR program was established was to recognize those breeders who go the extra mile to collect data at all levels of production and report that data in a timely manner,” says AHA Chief Operating Officer and Director of Breed Improvement Jack Ward. Since the program’s inception in 2005, Hereford breeders have increased their data collection efforts. Breeders must meet a specific set of requirements in order to be eligible for the program. They are: • Herd inventory submitted prior to date inventory surcharge goes into effect. • Complete reporting of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on inventory. • Complete reporting of birth weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of weaning weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of yearling weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight. • Ultrasound data reported on 25% or more of the calf crop. • Note: For weaning and yearling weights, disposal codes are accepted if the animal has been removed from the herd.

Celebrating 100 Years of Hereford Publishing This month we continue to commemorate the 100th year of Hereford publishing. Here are some highlights printed in the Feb. 1, 1911, issue:

• An excellent display of whiteface breeding cattle was shown by breeders from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado at the 1911 National Western Stock Show in Denver. Prince Rupert 27th was named the champion bull and Queen Bess the champion female.

• Hereford steers also took the highest honors at the Denver show in each department of the steer show — single steer, dressed carcasses, carload fat cattle and carload feeders.

• Very satisfactory prices, lively bidding and a good offering were the features of the Hereford sale at the 1911 Denver Show. The offering included 50 bulls and one female. The bulls grossed $9,305 with an average of $182. — Angie Stump Denton, editor

Correction: In the “Performance Matters” column on Page 8 of the January Hereford World, there was an error in the table reporting the data on the 2008-born calves at Olsen Ranch. The third bull reported was incorrectly identified. His correct name is C&L Advantage M326 22S ET, registration number P42728283. All of the data reported was correct.

...Unbeatable Baldies continued from cover

New genetics

All Bently calves are tagged with electronic identification (EID) tags to qualify for age-and-source premiums.

Bently keeps about 250 heifers each year. The selection process starts visually, first looking for moderate frame, correct feet and legs, and broodiness with a lot of capacity. Another selection tool is if the heifer is out of a first-calf heifer. “These are our newest genetics and they should be the best if we made good decisions,” McKinney explains. The Bently crew also looks at the age of calf. “If a heifer was born in the first half of calving season, that shows her mom got bred and calved first, so that heifer is more likely to do the same,” McKinney says. All replacement heifers are artificially inseminated

(AI bred) to calving-ease bulls. After development the heifers are synchronized and watched for heat. Those that do not show signs of heat are resynchronized and then time-bred.

Marketing angles The Bently marketing strategy is to maximize opportunities and earn the premiums available today in the marketplace. The ranch has become non-hormone treated cattle (NHTC) compliant and participates in age-andsource verification and all-natural programs. Staff is also looking into green certified and what marketing opportunities that represents. McKinney explains half of the Bently calf crop is sold by

video. After weaning, calves are sorted by size and type and then backgrounded for 45-60 days. McKinney says he groups red baldies with the Charolais-cross calves. He says the two make a great package. The first groups are sold on the December video. The lighter-weight calves are shipped to the Red Bluff, Calif., area to run as stockers. They will gain about 2.75 lb. per day on grass and be sold in May on the video, averaging about 900 lb. McKinney has been able to get carcass data on the calves sold. The last groups have been averaging 75-95% Choice. Heifers that do not make the selection as replacements or that don’t breed are sent to Open Space Meats in Newman, Calif., which is a grass-fed beef program. This past year the heifers graded 100% Choice off of grass.

Challenge to Hereford breeders McKinney admits there are a lot of breed choices. He says he thinks the commercial cattle industry as a whole has gone straight black for too long. “Hereford is the best choice for commercial producers who have used a straight-Angus breeding program,” he says. “Incorporating Hereford genetics into the herd will add hybrid vigor, which will get you more livability, increased production, improved health and fertility, and baldie calves will get you a premium in any market. “The Hereford-Angus cross cow has always been the benchmark in the commercial industry. They raise the best calf each year, stay in good shape and breed back year after year. Plus it doesn’t matter what you breed her to; she’ll always give you a good product,” he adds. McKinney challenges Hereford breeders to continue to produce and provide the type of bulls that work in the West. He also says the breed needs to work on making AI semen more accessible and less costly for the commercial industry. “There is a huge opportunity for the Hereford breed today,” McKinney says. “The Hereford bull and the Angus commercial cow make the perfect pair.” HW

Heterosis — Ignored or Forgotten? by Dave Daley, California State University-Chico

reason, poultry and pork have seemed to figure out how to take advantage of genetic diversity and produce a consistent product. The beef industry has not done so on a widespread basis. After participating in this industry at many levels (educator, cow-calf and stocker producer, purebred breeder), I thought it appropriate to summarize 10 reasons that we have ignored or forgotten about heterosis in our quest to make genetic progress. If assigning blame is important there is plenty to go around, including much of it directed to the historical direction of our research and education at universities. 1

S

o why are we still talking about heterosis? I remember attending a cattlemen’s meeting in 1967, in Bangor, Calif., when I was 9 years old. Our farm advisor gave this very clear, simplistic report on crossbreeding — and the data was irrefutable. Crossbreeding generates economic returns for commercial beef producers. The following spring, my dad purchased the first Angus bulls to be used on a herd that ran very heavy to Hereford, with a smattering of “Durham” (Shorthorn) influence. It was not necessarily a popular decision with all of the neighbors! Yet, 40 years later, I think that as an industry, we have ignored or forgotten the value of heterosis. The classical work conducted at Fort Robinson in the early 1960s, provided the scientific documentation for heterosis. These elegant and truly remarkable germ plasm evaluation and germ plasm utilization studies at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) provide substantive and meaningful data on the value of crossbreeding. If we design breeding programs that capture direct and maternal heterosis, we can increase lifetime production by more than 20%. The literature is clear, overwhelming and consistent regarding the benefits of capturing heterosis in beef production systems. I think back to my first animal breeding classes studying crossbreeding systems and discovering that nature was good to us — we were able to use both selection and crossbreeding to make genetic progress. Not only could we effectively utilize

20 Hereford World / February 2010

selection within breed for highly heritable traits, we could also make significant improvement in lowly heritable traits with crossbreeding. In graduate school in the early 1980s, I had the very fortunate experience to work with people like Bob Taylor and Jim Brinks — practical, skilled animal breeders — who had the ability to clearly elucidate the importance of designed breeding programs. From that experience, I was one of a handful of people who met in Denver in 1990, to form a group that worked on the utilization of “composite” seedstock. What I particularly appreciated about those “out-ofthe-box” thinkers is that it was not about protecting territory, but about making progress. Heterosis (hybrid vigor) is the amount (percent) by which the crossbred average exceeds the average of the two (or more) parental purebreds for a measured trait. From an economic perspective, the most important gains are made in lowly heritable traits that are often difficult to measure. Traits like calf livability, survival to weaning, conception rate, age at puberty and many others, all benefit from heterosis. The individual change in one trait is small, but the cumulative effect on total productivity and lifetime productivity is tremendous, ranging well over 20%. I do not believe it is necessary to revisit the scientific evidence regarding hybrid vigor, but more importantly to address the failure of our industry to effectively utilize the powerful tool that nature has provided. For some

A cultural bias that clearly reflects “purebreds as better,” if for no other reason than they have a registration paper. Society, at many levels, rewards purity. Is your dog registered? Does your quarter horse gelding have papers? How far can you trace your ancestry? Please don’t misunderstand — there is certainly value associated with that record, particularly our ability to track performance and predict genetic potential of purebreds. But being purebred should not be a presumption of superiority.

2

Our predilection for single-trait selection focusing on “bigger is better.” This industry seems to choose a trait of importance and then puts an inordinate amount of pressure on that trait, ignoring genetic antagonisms. If a 90-pound (lb.) yearling expected progeny difference (EPD) is good, 100 must be better! It is intuitive! We have already done that with frame, growth (weight of all kinds), milk and carcass traits (both ribeye and marbling). I sometimes have to ask myself, “So what is the trait of the year this time?” It is akin to the “flavor of the month” at the local ice cream shop. And, because we have often chosen relatively highly heritable traits, we have not needed to crossbreed to achieve those goals. The subtle, and cumulative improvement that heterosis provides does not lend itself to maximums. 3

We have decided that measuring outputs is more meaningful than measuring inputs, as well as easier to

do. It is certainly easier to measure calf performance on an individual basis, rather than all costs associated with that production. “I can weigh them at weaning quicker than I can determine differences in treatment costs over time.” 4

Uniform phenotypes for qualitative traits (color) have a distinct and real marketing advantage that is difficult to ignore. That does not mean you cannot have uniformity of color within a crossbreeding program, but the widespread and indiscriminate planning (or lack thereof) of many crossbreeding programs certainly gave us some interesting marketing challenges. Generally, it is easier to produce a uniform color in straightbred programs.

5

Heterosis is very difficult to visualize and even more difficult to measure. Because heterosis is expressed as a small net positive in many traits, we do not know it when we see it. Slight changes in morbidity, age at puberty, conception rate and significant changes in longevity are not easily observed. However, we all know when calves gain faster in the feedlot.

6

The presentation of complicated crossbreeding systems as a “normal practice” to diverse cattle operations, especially the countless small beef herds in the U.S. Many of the systems that we teach as part of standard animal breeding or beef production courses have very limited application in the real world. Most beef herds are too small to implement the “standard systems.”

7

Our penchant for telling people how to modify their environment in order to “get heavier calves, higher percent calf crop and more total pounds,” rather than how to increase net worth. How many new supplementation programs can you develop in order to get your heifers bred or wean bigger calves? In fact, we can recommend programs for noncycling females… you just have to pay for it and then pass those genetics to the next generation. Heterosis provides some improvement in traits at relatively low cost. www.hereford.org


However, we have obscured the opportunity for producers to focus on those traits, because they are so busy masking differences with artificial environments. 8

Historically, there has been active resistance to crossbreeding from some traditional marketing outlets, some purebred producers and (in some cases) breed associations. I would like to commend many of the associations who, quite recently, have taken the risk of suggesting where their animals fit most effectively in crossbreeding programs.

9

Inappropriate use of breed diversity. Nothing undermines crossbreeding more quickly than the unplanned “Heinz 57” or “Breed of the Month Club” approach. For those who were willing to experiment in crossbreeding, there was often very poor planning of the combination of breeds and the selection within those breeds.

10

Our industry and university systems have focused on individual trait measurement for more than 50 years. We have done a very poor job of incorporating real world economics into our models. We have EPDs for a plethora of traits, and we are adding more. Economic indices are starting to catch up, but we are still behind. Has anyone thought about measuring return per acre or return on investment? We have had a disconnect between agricultural economists and animal science that has not been well bridged. We tend to think lineally rather than laterally, which has reduced the applications of innovative crossbreeding.

in any environment without that incredible value. And, the tougher the environment, the more critical hybrid vigor becomes. For those of us who are educators, we need to work more effectively in presenting straightforward workable solutions. We need to renew our efforts in educating producers that selection is not about maximums — other than sustained profit. Animal breeders do not need to give us one more individual EPD that measures outputs. We need to incorporate dollars and we need to measure inputs. With all of the potential pitfalls in utilizing heterosis, I have observed success in pockets of the industry. Producers who have developed a plan, targeted a market, understand

“It is time for many producers to design long term, simplistic plans that capture maternal heterosis. I would not want to manage cattle in any environment without that incredible value.” their resources and environment and are focused on profit are successfully capitalizing on heterosis. I see terminal systems with moderate crossbred cows under limited feed producing a successful product that performs in the feedlot. I see other ranches that are highly focused on quality, using moderate crossbred cows mated to produce ¾-blood calves for specific market —

the heterosis is lower, but the market rewards are real. There is no single solution. However, as we turn the corner in the cattle cycle and begin to experience somewhat lower prices, I am confident that we can no longer forget how to reduce input costs — and heterosis has to be part of that equation. HW

Summary So where are we now? In the Far West, as in much of the U.S., we have seen a move toward less crossbreeding and more reliance on a single breed. Generally, that has been quite positive, because many of the herds were crossbred and had high levels of heterosis. Therefore, five to eight years of one breed has reduced heterosis, but provided a consistent, highly marketable product, with some maternal heterosis still pressing in the cow here. Recently, I am hearing concern from some very large, progressive producers as their cows become more straightbred in a tough environment. Longevity, rebreeding and calf survivability all become important issues. I don’t think it is because they have bought the wrong bulls or managed their ranch incorrectly. It is because they have forgotten or ignored heterosis. It is time for many producers to design long term, simplistic plans that capture maternal heterosis. I would not want to manage cattle www.hereford.org

The F1 “tigerstripe” Hereford-Brahman cross female is a superior cow for the South. by Sara Gugelmeyer

T

hese guys know tigerstripe females. If you add them together, Tom Johnson, Mike Armitage and Jay Wright sell approximately 10,000 head of F1 tigerstripe females each year. Tom Johnson, Wortham, Texas, sells at least 7,500 head of F1

tigerstripe females each year for himself and customers through his marketing business, and maintains a 300-head cow herd of tigerstripe cows. He’s the largest marketer of tigerstripe females. Mike Armitage, Claremore, Okla., started his commercial cow

operation with tigerstripes in 1994, and he continues to buy, add value to, and sell between 1,500 and 2,000 head of tigerstripe females each year. Jay Wright manages W4 Ranch, Morgan, Texas, where Hereford seedstock and F1 replacement females are raised. All three agree that the F1 tigerstripe female is a superior cow for the South and Southeast.

What is a tigerstripe? “Tigerstripe” is a term used to describe the F1 cross of Hereford and Brahman because of the animal’s tigerlike striped brindle hair. The cross is traditionally known to combine the beefier Hereford of English descent with the more heat-tolerant Bos indicus Brahman.

What’s the advantage? These F1 tigerstripes are ideally suited to hot and humid climates, Wright says. “They will get out and chase what feed is there better than the straightbred cattle; they are more heat tolerant and withstand that kind of climate a whole lot better.”

Tigerstriped Value

Armitage says they work really well in his environment where sore feet and eye trouble are management issues related to the climate and conditions. “They fit our country real well in central and south Texas where the climate and the terrain demand that you have some Brahman influence,” Johnson says. Comparing tigerstripes to straight Brahman is where the difference really shows. “Your breed-back is going to be a lot better with F1s, and there’s more performance in those cattle as far as weaning weight and yearling weight. And the cattle are going to feed much better and grade a lot better,” Johnson says. One of the biggest advantages, though, is longevity. “Real-world ranchers know that the F1 female will outlive and be productive three to five years longer than a straight English animal because of the Brahman influence,” Armitage says. Wright adds, “You’ll get maybe 10 to 12 years out of a straight bred cow. I’ve seen F1s that will last up to 20 years.” And Johnson’s cows prove it. “This week I shipped some packer cows, and some of the cows were 19 and 20 years old and have raised a calf every year. For a cow to last 18 or 19 years and not miss any calves and still have a few teeth in their head is pretty remarkable.” Not only do the cows last 18 or 19 years, but they raise growthy www.hereford.org


calves as well. “Tigerstripes will consistently wean from 30 to 50 lb. heavier weights than any other cross in this region,” Armitage says. Johnson explains, “When you breed Brahman to Hereford, you’re breeding cold to hot. You get kind of a genetic explosion, and that extra jolt of hybrid vigor just makes a cow that is a real heavy milker and can function in some pretty tough environments.”

Are they wild? Many cattlemen believe Brahman or cattle with “ear” to be wild and unmanageable. Armitage says that isn’t the case. “If they’re managed properly and handled correctly horseback, they can be the simplest cows to handle and are much smarter than the average bovine. But I don’t recommend them to the guys that have portable panels and a four-wheeler. The main difference is you don’t need to touch these cows but twice a year. They take care of themselves.” Johnson agrees, “With that tick of Brahman in them they are going to have a little different disposition. It’s all in the way you cowboy and how you handle them. We do everything horseback and our cattle work well horseback. You are going to get some (wild ones) every once in a while but those need to be culled anyway. The less time they have to spend in a set of pens the better off they are and you are too.”

But, the good news is the heifers are in high demand for replacement females. Johnson breeds his F1 cows to Brangus bulls and enjoys a good marketplace for his heifer calves for replacements. “I probably get beat up a little on my steers because they get a little too much navel on them and too much ear. But the heifer side of it surpasses and makes up for that.” Armitage says, “The reason for the tigerstripe’s value is partly due to the simple laws of supply and demand. There’s not many of those females available in this region. We find that in northeast Oklahoma the tigerstripe is our top seller, they will outsell the very best Angus cattle in this region. We buy (tigerstripes) as heifers or young cows in whole herd liquidations primarily out of Texas, mate them to Angus or Charolais bulls and market them through one of our sales.” Armitage Livestock organizes about five commercial female sales annually with 800-3,000 head sold at each event located throughout northeast Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas. As the largest marketer of tigerstripes, Johnson buys no less than 2,000 head of open heifer calves each year, usually about 550-600 lb., straightens them out, groups them by weight and resells them. His company, Johnson Cattle Marketing, also sells about 1,400-1,500 head of primarily tigerstripes at six sales in south

A Bar Ranch/Armitage Livestock

Mike Armitage, along with his wife, Martha, and sons, Merrit, 22, and Turner, 17, own and operate A Bar Ranch and Armitage Livestock near Claremore, Okla. Mike started his own Hereford herd in 1994 after working for Brushcreek Herefords who owned “Lerch,” a record-breaking bull that sold for $260,000 for half-interest in 1980. “A lot of my original cow herd was Lerch descendants and we decided to use a Brahman bull on our Hereford cows and start raising our own tigerstripe cows.” By 2001 Armitage had grown his A Bar Ranch herd to about 400 head by keeping replacements out of those original Hereford cows and their tigerstripe daughters. Now, Armitage’s cow herd consists of about 1,200 head of mainly F1s and F2s sired by Angus bulls. Armitage says fertility can sometimes be a problem with Brahman crosses. To ensure that would not be the case with his herd, “we decided to ultrasound our entire group of replacement heifers in 1995 and kept only heifers that conceived the first 30 days of exposure,” Armitage says. “And since we did not keep any that didn’t meet those criteria, all were selected from those cows that were extremely fertile.” Handling cattle horseback isn’t just something the Armitage family enjoys, it’s business as well. A Bar Ranch maintains a broodmare band of about 100 head of modern cow-bred Quarter Horses. At their annual fall sale, ranch geldings and weanling prospects are sold. Because of their program of buying female tigerstripes, adding value by breeding them, calving them or simply holding them until the market improves, the Armitages are often caring for as many as 5,000 head of bred cows and heifers at a time in addition to their home-raised cow herd.

Where’s the market? Cattlemen do find one disadvantage to the F1 tigerstripe cow. As of now, there is not a great marketing outlet for feeder calves with Brahman influence. Even if they are 50% or more Hereford they are not eligible for Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) and are sometimes discounted at sale barns. Wright has developed a relationship with feeder calf buyers who appreciate his F1 calves. “The misconception is that those Brahman-cross steers won’t feed as well as straightbred cattle, but that is not entirely true in my opinion. They’ll buy them because they come from here and they know they are taken care of, had their shots and everything. And they say they’re feeding as well as straightbred cattle.” Johnson hopes that a niche market like CHB will be developed for Hereford-Brahman cross feeder cattle to help maintain and develop the market for Hereford bulls in his area, because many of his customers are using Hereford bulls on F1 tigerstripe cows and taking a discount when the calves are marketed. www.hereford.org

“When you breed Brahman to Hereford, you’re breeding cold to hot. You get kind of a genetic explosion, and that extra jolt of hybrid vigor just makes a cow that is a real heavy milker and can function in some pretty tough environments.” — Tom Johnson

Texas throughout the year, in addition to order buying and marketing F1s for ranches like W4. In fact, Johnson organizes W4’s annual production sale where about 150 F1 tigerstripe replacements are sold each year. Whether it’s raising, managing or marketing females, it’s pretty clear these three cattlemen see value in tigerstripes. HW

W4 Ranch W4 Ranch, Morgan, Texas, is a large Hereford seedstock operation that also raises F1 Hereford-Brahman and F1 Hereford-Angus replacement females. Jay Wright is the general manager, and the ranch is owned by James, Joe and Joey Walker. Producing F1 females is something W4 has done since the ranch was started in 1961. “That’s been our bread and butter,” says Wright. “That’s how we got to where we are. We sell more Herefords now, because our Hereford genetics have improved.” In 2002, W4 purchased the K74 herd owned by Cliff Knight, Sulphur, Okla. About 300 K74 females and seven herd bulls were bought by W4 to improve its genetic base and increase the quality of its seedstock. Encompassing about 12,000 acres, the W4 ranch keeps an average of 1,000 head of Hereford cows and produces about 75% purebred seedstock, and the remainder is Brahman and Angus crossbreds. W4

sells about 100 bulls and 150-200 replacement females at its annual production sale the fourth Friday of October. W4’s F1 tigerstripe females are now sold as open heifer calves, Wright says. “We used to sell them as bred heifers or pairs, but in this day and time it’s been more feasible for me to sell open heifers. I’ll wean the calves, get them all ready to go and the buyers take and raise them in their own climate, feed resources. It’s been more beneficial and economical for me to sell them as open heifers.” Most of the time, W4 heifers are bought by one ranch. “These people are set up so they come in and want to buy large groups. They generally buy from a reputable Hereford place that can put a big group together, because if they get them from one ranch, they know how they’re going to perform.” For more information about W4, visit www.W4ranch.com.

Johnson Cattle Marketing/87 Ranch Tom Johnson started Johnson Cattle Marketing, Wortham, Texas, in 1991, after working for 15 years as a field representative for The Cattleman magazine. The Cattleman is the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association’s publication, based out of Ft. Worth. Because he had been

24 Hereford World / February 2010

traveling around the area visiting with cattle producers for many years, starting a marketing business was a simple transition. “I already knew where the cattle were,” Johnson says. “And the relationships were in place.” Johnson, along with his wife, Spring, and sons, Josh and Calvin, grew the business to where it is now: one of the largest cattle marketing firms in the country. Johnson Cattle Marketing manages six regular consignment auctions a year, of about 1,400-1,500 head each, plus additional dispersal and special sales for clients, and order buying and selling. The six annual consignment auctions are held in Groesbeck and Navasota, Texas, south of Wortham. Johnson Cattle Marketing also manages two Hereford production sales each year: W4 Ranch and Powell Herefords, Ft. McKavett, Texas.

Of these approximate 10,000 or more head sold through Johnson Cattle Marketing each year, Tom estimates 60% or greater are F1 tigerstripes. In addition, Tom has had a primarily F1 tigerstripe cow herd of his own for about 20 years, operating under the 87 Ranch name. The 87 herd currently consists of about 300 head, which are bred to Brangus bulls. The heifer calves are sold as replacements and the steers as feeders. Johnson says, “The F1 cow for our country is a thriftier individual and will make it on a lot less and wean a bigger calf every year and works the best for us.” A low-maintenance cow is important for the Johnsons, who manage the replacement heifers, cows and sales with only one hired hand and a few day-working cowboys.

A checklist for effective bull management. by Codi Vallery-Mills

T

he seedstock you choose to put in your pasture every breeding season has the greatest potential to influence your herd’s genetics and calf characteristics and a bull’s nutrition can be a limiting factor on how well that potential is tapped.

With the 2010 winter and spring bull sales just days away now is the time to begin planning your herd sire needs and management practices to assure an efficient breeding season. Speaking at the Range Beef Cow Symposium in Casper, Wyo., Dec. 5, Beef Extension Specialist

To Make Your Breeding Season Successful, The Work Starts Now

Julie Walker of South Dakota’s West River Ag Center gave bull nutrition reminders to cow-calf operators. First, it is important to remember that puberty equals fertility. A common measurement of puberty is in a bull’s scrotal circumference. Most bulls that have a circumference between 27-29 centimeters (cm) will have reached puberty. Walker says only 35% of bulls reach maturity at 12 months, 60% at 14 months and 95% at 16 months. Scrotal circumference is relative to daily sperm production; the larger scrotal circumference bulls (non-fatty types) will have large sperm production. Their sons will generally also have big scrotums and it has been proven in research that their daughters will often reach puberty earlier. Nutritional requirements and how those needs are met will influence how fast those bulls reach maturity. For pre-weaned beef calves it is adequate to leave calves at dam’s side and on forage. Once calves are weaned Walker recommends moderate rates of gain instead of high rates of gain. She says there is no magic feed meridian and there are several ration variations to choose from, but the key is to develop a ration that meets the desired animal performance without over- or under-developing the bull, which can have negative impacts on semen quality and quantity. Prior to breeding season Walker gives these tips: 1) Have a plan of which bulls will be together in the pasture by observing them in the pen. “This is when you let them pick their social structure,” Walker says. 2) Make sure bulls are given exercise. Whether they are wintered in a pasture or on dry lot, bulls need a reason to get up and move. Make sure they are getting daily movement by walking to water or feed. Exercise is known to increase libido and will keep the bulls physically fit and ready for breeding. 3) Bulls entering into breeding season should be at a body condition score (BCS) of 6. Bulls should be gaining weight and maintaining condition 120 days before breeding.

Walker also advises that cattlemen buying bulls from seedstock producers need to have a conversation about what they are feeding because an upset in diet can affect sperm quality and quantity. If bulls are highly fitted, their diet should be brought down 10% each week to effectively incorporate them on to grass.

Pasture time It’s breeding season, your bulls are in top shape and are ready to go pasture to join the cow herd. Now what? Walker says producers need to consider the male-to-female ratio. A good rule of thumb is to place the same number of females as the same number of months in age the bull is to each bull. For an 18-month-old bull it would then be understood that he would be expected to service 18 females. Once the bulls are divided into their pastures observe them in action. Walker recommends checking in on the bulls between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. This is when the majority of cows are in heat and bulls will be most active. Producers should observe bulls for their level of interest and efficiency. “It is worth the time to make sure they are okay and doing their job,” Walker says. During breeding season bulls will be able to eat the same diet as the cows, which is most often a forage-based diet with mineral and protein pack supplements. After breeding, bulls should be visually appraised and placed into three groups: 1) mature bulls in good condition, 2) growing bulls and thin bulls, and 3) salvage bulls that will be marketed. For salvage bulls Walker recommends giving a little extra care, helping them reach an average daily gain of 3-5 lb., before selling. Walker says that the semen quality of a bull can change over time as several factors include weather, nutrition and injury can affect production. It is important for producers to conduct annual bull soundness exams through a veterinarian to ensure their bulls have viable semen.

To AI or Not to AI? The question requires some consideration. by Sara Gugelmeyer

R

anching, put simply, is managing one’s own business with the added benefits of pretty scenery and a rural lifestyle. So when it comes to decisions like choosing between buying a bull or buying semen for artificial insemination (AI), the business manager ought to determine which one is most cost effective and best fits the operation. And it’s one of the most important decisions a manager must make because the right choice will greatly affect the profitability of the saleable product: calves. The traditional method for many a cattleman is to choose a bull or bulls based on the operation’s production goals. The bulls are turned out with the cows or heifers, and, hopefully, about 283 days later, good quality, consistent calves are born without incident. But others may prefer using AI. Still, the cattleman must choose a bull or bulls that fit his production goals, but then the cows or heifers are likely synchronized, then inseminated. And again, hopefully, he gets the same result: good quality, consistent calves are born without trouble. Although the end result may be the same, the costs and

“If producers are too spread out and can’t highly manage the cows or if they are running on large allotments of land and cannot gather them, AI isn’t going to work for everybody.” — Chad Ellingson 34 Hereford World / February 2010

decisions involved with each method must be considered.

Management The major difference between the two methods is management. This will be the deciding factor for many operations, and Tim Shaw Herefords, Cascade, Idaho, is one. Tim runs about 300 registered cows and only uses bulls via natural service to breed his cows. The decision for him is simply about management, he says. “We summer the cows near Cascade, where I live; then in the winter, we bring them down about 70 miles to the Boise Valley, below the snow level,” Tim says. Tim and his son, Thomas, plus their wives are the only employees of the operation, and at breeding time, the cows are at least 20 miles from their homeplace. Plus, it is rented land, and there is no working facility, making it impossible to AI their cattle. Grazing the lower elevation rented land helps the Shaws to feed their cows only 30-45 days a year, and they are still able to keep a tight calving season of 60 days. They have been using this program for about 10 years, and before that they did use AI. “We did it all ourselves; it’s just that the cows were right here where we could see them all the time, and we were set up with the right facilities to handle them.” For Tim the advantages of wintering his cows in the valley outweigh any advantage he may have had with AI. There are other operations like Tim’s that just aren’t set up to handle the AI process. Chad Ellingson, beef sire procurement manager for Genex/Cooperative Resources International, admits AI does take a high level of

management. He says, “If producers are too spread out and can’t highly manage the cows or if they are running on large allotments of land and cannot gather them, AI isn’t going to work for everybody.” Ellingson says there are situations where Genex field staff will visit with a producer and explain that AI won’t be successful for him because of the management situation.

Cost analysis If a producer has examined his operation and believes that he can provide the right management to make an AI program work, he next needs to determine if the benefit will outweigh the cost. For Vern Rausch of Rausch Herefords at Hoven, S.D., the benefits are not always worth the added time and expense of AI. Rausch’s operation consists of about 1,000 registered Hereford females. The massive time requirement necessary to synchronize and inseminate that many head makes it too costly to AI the whole herd. Rausch explains that for his operation, the cost of AI when considering conception rates, labor, yardage and other management expenses is the equivalent of spending $7,000 per bull. When considering which method will work best, producers need to consider all expenses involved with each. For natural service, it’s important to consider the initial price paid for the bull or if the bull is home-raised, the opportunity cost of what the bull is worth if he were sold should be used. Added to that should be the cost of maintaining the bull year-round and the added

revenue that would be earned if an extra cow could take his place. The yearly depreciation expense should be considered plus any vet expenses throughout the year like vaccinations, deworming and semen testing, among others. Ellingson says, “If you do a cost analysis of keeping a bull, I think a lot of times people don’t realize first they have the investment costs: they’ll have a $500 feed bill on top of that per year and then the depreciation of the bull; there are a lot of costs involved. If you divide that out by natural service bulls breeding 25 cows per year, it’s very comparable and sometimes at a savings with using AI.” He adds that with AI, depending on the bull chosen, in a commercial situation, a pretty good bull will be about $15 per unit of semen. “On a percentage basis on calves conceived or pregnancies, you are going to be in about that $25 range,” Ellingson says. “If you put the arm service, or time if they’re doing it themselves, and labor costs and synchronization costs, they’re still going to be in that $35-40 range per pregnancy.” Most likely producers are still going to need some bulls to use for cleanup, and those costs should be included in the cost analysis. Ellingson says it’s important to remember that breeding with AI after synchronizing will be much more successful, resulting in a shorter calving interval. “If you synchronize a herd of cows, there’s going to be a lot more cows conceiving a calf on day one of your breeding season versus strung out over 21 days,” he says. “So from a calving interval standpoint, you are going to shorten up the www.hereford.org


interval, have earlier calves with a combination of synchronization and AI versus natural service.” With that considered, a shorter calving interval will result in a more even set of calves at weaning, which is important for earning top dollar at marketing time. However, using AI isn’t the only way to get an even set of calves. When examining conception rates of AI versus natural service, Ellingson admits that natural service has a slightly higher percentage of conception on a per service basis.

Pros and cons Rausch and Ellingson agree that the major advantage of AI is that the sires are proven for certain genetic traits, resulting in a higher chance the producer will get calves with the traits he wants. “If they’re looking for calving ease, they can choose a high accuracy calving-ease bull that when they come to calving, they are not having to pull a calf,” Ellingson says. “Or from a maternal or a carcass standpoint, if they are trying to improve their carcass, they can use a sire that is proven maternally or for growth. There are many different options where you can know what you’re getting before you put the semen in the cow.” Rausch agrees, saying, especially for a smaller producer, “Using AI can be very beneficial to breeders who have limited cow numbers because it gives the breeder access to more than one sire to mate the females to.” He adds, “The American Hereford Association’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPRTM) program is the best thing to come along for the Hereford breed since performance records started in 1960. The fruits of the program are starting to come of age. The volume of complete data is making genetic predictability much more accurate.” This program is making it easier for producers to find bulls to use by natural service with a more accurate predictability of the sire’s heritable traits. Plus, Rausch adds, using AI bulls to sire herd bull prospects doesn’t allow for seedstock producers to predict how the progeny will stack up in terms of economically important traits such as fertility, ability to service the cow, ability to cover a big pasture, mothering ability of the daughters, temperament and longevity. Also, while AI allows for genetic improvement by giving more producers the chance to breed their cows to industry-leading bulls, it also makes genetic defects more likely to adversely affect the breed because it limits the breed’s genetic base by spreading it over several more animals. Rausch says, “AI has the ability to scatter more rapidly both the good and bad undiscovered genetics in the population of the breed.” For many these pros and cons result in using a combination of both methods of breeding for cows and heifers. In 2008 Rausch selected www.hereford.org

some of his cows and young heifers to breed AI because of the genetic predictability of AI sires for traits like calving ease but prefers to use natural service to breed the large majority of his cows. Even Tim Shaw has tried using AI in recent years on his heifers, despite the management issues associated with a more laborintensive method. Each producer needs to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of both natural service and AI to determine which method will work for the type of female being bred and the type of calf he wants to produce. The good news for the Hereford breed is that more cattlemen are turning to Hereford genetics, whether it be for AI or natural service bulls.

“Using AI can be very beneficial to breeders who have limited cow numbers because it gives the breeder access to more than one sire to mate the females to.” — Vern Rausch On the AI side, Ellingson says he is seeing growth in the demand for Hereford semen. “I think there’s a growing demand for AI amongst Hereford bulls, and we have been actively seeking bulls that not only will fit the elite registered producers but that will fit the commercial producers that are probably using crossbreeding to produce quite likely baldies for

replacement females,” Ellingson says. “We think there’s a growing demand for using Herefords among commercial cattlemen, and for that reason we are bringing in bulls that have a balance effect of calving ease, maternal and structural correctness, and longevity with top-percentileranking growth traits.” HW

Can Commercial Cattlemen

Make AI Pay? by Troy Smith

S

uppose you gathered up exactly 100 cow-calf producers representing a true cross-section of the commercial industry. And just suppose you asked all among the crowd who currently use artificial insemination (AI) in their operations to raise their hands. It’s likely there would be no more than eight hands waving in the air. There would be even fewer if you asked how many producers were practicing AI on mature cows. The simple fact is that most commercial producers shy away from AI. Of those who do use AI, most use it only for breeding replacement heifers. “I think, as an industry, we have made people think that AI is very difficult,” says Herb Holzapfel of Willow, Calif. “I happen to be living proof that it is not.” Holzapfel is a veteran of utilizing AI as a breeding tool. He started using the technology in his commercial operation more than 30 years ago. Like a lot of producers, he started by artificially breeding replacement heifers. But for a lot of years now, AI has been applied to mature cows as well. Holzapfel says many people seem to think success with AI depends on having fancy facilities. But he and his wife, Ginger, have bred heifers and

cows in a variety of situations, including very simple facilities fashioned from portable panels. “Facilities can be whatever you have on the ranch. Any chute setup that you are presently using can be made to work for an AI program,” Holzapfel explains. “We still breed in what I would call plain ol’ commercial ranch facilities.” Anderson Land and Cattle Co. has been using synchronized AI nearly as long as Holzapfel. Clay Anderson, his brother, Jason, and their mother, Gayle, share in the management of the operation near Oberlin, Kan. Anderson says many of their neighbors perceive AI as requiring too much time and labor. Granted, cattle have to be put through the chute a few times for estrus synchronization and insemination. It does take planning to schedule the work and do it right. But Anderson says modern synchronization protocols for timed AI can dramatically reduce the time devoted to heat detection. He thinks devoting a few days to careful implementation of AI pays ample dividends. “Synchronized AI means more cows are bred on the first heat cycle. So more calves are born early and they’re closer in age,” Anderson says. “Certainly, the calves are sired by better bulls than we could afford to own and

“I believe some of the best ways to increase net return is through estrous synchronization, artificial insemination and retained ownership through slaughter.”

use naturally. With AI we access some of the best, proven genetics available, using a $40,000 or $50,000 sire at a cost of about $20 per calf. AI consistently delivers above average returns on the cattle we market, and we’re improving our cow herd faster with the AI-sired replacement females we keep.” Among cattle finished in the Andersons’ own feedlot and marketed in 2008, 84% achieved a Choice carcass quality grade — a far cry from the 46% of the mid1970s. In just the last four years, the number of Yield Grade (YG) 4 carcasses has been reduced by 10%. Yield Grade 1 carcasses are up by 10% and the number qualifying for YG 2 increased by 16%. Anderson credits these improvements to sire selection based on the highaccuracy EPD (expected progeny difference) values of AI sires and a focus on improving carcass merit while maintaining the herd’s strong maternal traits. Anderson and Holzapfel think more commercial producers could make AI work. Whether they sell feeder cattle like Holzapfel or retain ownership through the feedlot like Anderson, AI provides opportunity to improve the value of cattle marketed. Of course, the true measure of success with AI would be increased net return from the cow-calf enterprise. Tim Sutphin, who operates Hillwinds Farm near Dublin, Va., says net return is the one measure he seeks to maximize. “I believe some of the best ways to increase net return is through estrous synchronization, artificial insemination and retained ownership through slaughter,” Sutphin says. “These things, in combination, have made a big difference in our bottom line.” Since 1999 Sutphin has applied synchronized AI on a whole herd basis. All cows are inseminated on Day 1 of the breeding season, after which clean-up bulls are turned into the pasture. Sutphin has put his pencil to it and found that AI does cost more than natural service. His figures show the cost of one-time AI, including semen, synchronization protocol and other costs, is about $39 per pregnant cow. That’s assuming a 65% conception rate with AI. According to Sutphin’s calculations, using a $2,800 bull for four years and assuming a 90% conception rate, puts the cost of natural service at about $33 per pregnant cow. That makes the cost of AI $6 per pregnant cow higher. However, Sutphin cites a 2% improvement in pregnancy rate since implementing AI, with more calves born early in the calving season. Typically, pregnancy rates range from 95% to 97.5%, with 85% to 90% of calves born in the first 30 days of a 65-day calving period. AI-sired calves are about 27 days older than the average age

of calves resulting from natural service. The average age of all calves is 16 days older than before AI was implemented. In Sutphin’s experience, there is less dystocia among cows bred AI. He credits the difference to the higher accuracy of birth weight and calving ease EPDs for the AI sires, compared to unproven bulls used naturally. Sutphin’s older AI-sired calves also appear to have more resistance to pneumonia and scours. From birth through harvest, treatment costs and death losses are lower for AI-sired calves. Also credited to the use of proven genetics is the increased feedyard performance and carcass merit of AI-sired calves. Sutphin has even looked at how saving AI-sired replacement females has influenced the value of marketed animals and improved net return to the operation. “The value of our calves has improved with increasing AI influence,” Sutphin says. “If we compare a calf that is AI-sired and out an AI-sired cow, with a calf that is sired by a clean-up bull and a non-AI-sired cow, the difference in the end value is as much as $175. That’s worth the little bit extra that it costs to AI.” Representatives of AI technology suppliers (bull studs) generally agree that most commercial producers practicing AI still focus primarily on breeding yearling heifers to sires promising calving ease combined with performance. These producers seek benefits including lower labor requirements during a short calving season and better performing calves out of first-calf heifers. However, development of modern synchronization protocols for timed-AI has caused more producers to think about breeding cows. Many of those producers also retain ownership of calves all the way to harvest. It has been said that producers who market fed cattle have a better chance of earning premium prices reflected by genetics available through AI. Herb Holzapfel says calf sellers also can claim rewards for cattle with “added value” associated with more uniform age and weight and genetics known for performance and quality. “Our steers consistently sell above the average market price and our heifers are sought-after,” Holzapfel says. “I believe if you are going to be in the ranching business in the future, your very existence will depend on your ability to supply a better, more consistent product. I don’t know of a better way than with AI.” HW Editor’s Note: This article is provided by the National Association of Animal Breeders/Certified Semen Services, P.O.

the sales.

Elizabeth Bryant has always been eager to help and has never shied from a “man’s job.” As a youngster, Elizabeth helped her father with the cattle, horses, pigs and sheep raised on her parents’ farm. Even now, at 100 years young, she is the all-knowing matriarch of the Bryant family — keeping up with the Hereford herd and, of course, putting food on the table for the crew. Her strong will and work ethic are not surprising, considering her upbringing. Always fearless, when she was only a child, her father would place her on an unbroken Belgian horse’s back to get him used to a rider. When she got older, she enjoyed standing up on the Belgians’ wide backs like a trick rider. Elizabeth married Ermon Bryant, and they spent many years in the dairy business at Covington, Tenn., milking cows side by side. They had two sons, Elton and Ray, and a daughter, Margaret Ann. In 1949 they bought a polled Hereford bull and bred him to their dairy cows, leaving the dairy industry for the beef cattle business. Ray wanted a registered Hereford heifer, and so in 1952 he made a deal with nearby Hereford breeder Bill Reeves of Howard and Reeves Polled Herefords at Stanton, Tenn. Ray explains the deal was

Hospitality Made Right

Two dining establishments in Virginia serve CHB with their hospitality.

Sister restaurants Vintage Tavern (left) and River Stone Chophouse (right) feature CHB on their menu.

U

pscale dinning with a twist of Southern hospitality is what sister restaurants Vintage Tavern and River Stone Chophouse, Suffolk, Va., bring to the plate; and on the menu is Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) with a unique flavor. “Our goal in opening the restaurants was to carry on the tradition of Southern hospitality,” says Sam McGann, executive chef. He owns the restaurants with his wife, Cindy, and partners Brian and Teresa Mullins. “We think of it as a way of life: a lifestyle, if you will, in the importance of social graces.”

First to open in 2006 was Vintage Tavern in the bedroom community in southeast Virginia. River Stone Chophouse was opened in 2008 in a location just 15 minutes away. The establishments are distinct in design and atmosphere, but both carry out the genuine sense of treating guests like family. Serving seasonal Southern cuisine, Vintage Tavern is driven by its community in Governor’s Point. Welcoming guests to the 150-seat restaurant is a 40-seat bar and outdoor covered dining on the front

patio, and out back is a waterfall, fire pit and fishpond. “We work with local farmers, fishers and foragers to bring the restaurant as much local product as we possibly can,” McGann says. He realizes that sourcing close to home is important to the restaurant industry. “We are all concerned about our carbon footprint and being conscious of our environment,” he says. They grow their own herbs, grind their own grits and make their own breads in-house. They also make their own sausages and cured meats. “There is that strong movement of farm to table right now,” McGann says. River Stone Chophouse is a classic chophouse, serving steak and seafood. Located in a new business district, the restaurant is driven by the nearby businesses. It holds four distinct dining rooms and private rooms on the second floor for private events. The design was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s creations, and each private room is named in honor of him. “With the steak and seafood concept in mind,” McGann says, “that’s where we look long and hard at the opportunity to work with Hereford beef.” Hereford tenderloin was used from the beginning, and McGann was impressed with the flavor, consistency and age-ability. “It won the taste test and completely surprised me,” he says. McGann went to their supplier, Sysco Hampton Roads, and asked the company to look into Hereford beef. Consequently, they brought CHB on board. “The product performs on a very consistent basis, which is very important to our customers who menu it,” says Stephen Tracy, brand manager for Sysco Hampton Roads. McGann says the choice was made by their guests’ admiration of CHB. “We’ve had an overwhelming response from our customers at both restaurants for an extended period of time now,” he says. “They have come to accept CHB and enjoy its flavor. The best answer comes from our guests.” As a business owner, McGann finds tremendous value for the dollar in using CHB. “With the economy the way it is, we need to look at the price point as hard as we possibly can,” he

says. “CHB has been able to help us prove that value and keep the customer happy at the same time. It’s a win-win situation for all of us.” River Stone Chophouse focuses on and serves traditional steakhouse cuts prepared in a unique way. A signature found on the menu is the 22-ounce (oz.) bone-in ribeye that has been dry aged between 21 and 28 days. “From what we understand, and from talking to some of the reps, we may be one of the first and only restaurants to dry age Hereford products,” McGann says. The bone-in 18-oz. Kansas City strip steak is first cold smoked as the whole strip loin before it is cut, grilled and served. “It has a natural applewood smoked aroma once it comes off the grill,” McGann says. Also offered is a 24-oz. bone-in porterhouse, an 8-oz. tenderloin for ala carte dining and a 12-oz. sirloin au poivre. The primary steak at Vintage Tavern is the tenderloin. McGann is pleased with how CHB products perform, but he also supports what CHB stands for. “We believe in the way the calf is matured and raised,” McGann says. “There is a conscious effort to have it grazed as long as possible and still has wonderful flavor and is freerange fed as long as possible.” McGann compares CHB to other branded products and appreciates that the breed is pure. “Angus is so popular, but I think it is confusing now,” he says. “At one time I think it had a lot more meaning that what it does today. I like to think that CHB will learn from that as they start moving forward.” He hopes that Vintage Tavern and River Stone Chophouse will help make a name for the product and encourage other restaurants to serve CHB. “I’m proud to say we have found a great niche for it in our concept, and I hope that it will springboard other operations to try it; we are kind of laying the ground work.” McGann looks forward to the relationship between CHB and his restaurants to expand. For now, he’ll continue to serve the product that has proved valuable to him and stick to the type of service he knows best. “It’s a comfortable sense of caring for your guest and really meaning it. In our case, we like to say hospitality is our life.” HW www.hereford.org

Yoder Named 2009 Lifetime Cattleman

Dick Yoder, Custer, Wash., was recognized at the Western Nugget National Hereford Show in Reno as the 2009 Lifetime Cattleman Honoree. Dick and his wife, Karen, have been married since 1956 and have six children — Alan, Renetta, Dale, Sharin, Deborah and Nadine. The Yoders bought their first farm in 1967 and started a small herd of commercial cows, mostly black and whiteface. They also had a small herd of dairy cows, registered Holsteins with a few grade ones too. Since the Holstein Association insisted on a prefix to register animals, the Yoders selected Yoricka, which continues to be their farm name today. At the time, they were milking cows and raising row crops for a frozen food plant, but when environmental issues over water usage at the plant arose, the Yoders had to close down and move out of the area. It was a big change for the Yoder family after 25 years. In 1982 the Yoders joined the American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) with a startup herd of six heifers from Justimer of Maidstone, Canada, and six heifers from Curtis & Martin of Florence, Mont. They have grown to calving out Pictured at the 2009 Western Nugget Show (l to r) are: Mark Holt, AHA fieldman; Dick and Karen Yoder; Katie Yoder, granddaughter; and Deborah and Jay Johnson, daughter and son-in-law. about 200 cows in April and May, which is a little drIer time of year in northwest Washington.

Hereford Faces Andee Marston

The beef industry is unique in the way it invests so much time and dedication into the next generation of leaders. Junior cattle associations provide members with the opportunity to gain lifelong skills not only in the showring but also in available leadership roles. Many beef leaders started their careers when they were barely big enough to lead a heifer; showing cattle was a hobby and family activity. Through the years, these leaders expanded their roles and established careers based on something they have been passionate about all their lives.

Andee Marston, American Hereford Association (AHA) field representative, fits the profile of a beef leader. While involved in the Shorthorn breed, Andee was an active junior member and successfully showed across the nation. While taking part in something he enjoyed, Andee was able to prepare for a professional career as a field representative for the AHA. Andee is originally from Canton, Kan., where he grew up on his family’s Shorthorn and farming operation. While managing 150 cows, his dad also managed a custom fitting service in the late 1970s and early ’80s. Andee decided to following in his father’s footsteps by starting Lucky 7 Cattle Services, preparing cattle for shows and sales. He has accumulated several purple banners. His family raised the 2009 National Western Stock Show (NWSS) champion Shorthorn bull, 1998 NWSS champion Shorthorn heifer and 1996 All-American Shorthorn heifer, along with several other division champions at national shows. Andee attended Kansas State University (K-State), receiving his bachelor’s degree in animal science.

by Nicole Starr

After college he worked for an Angus operation in Oklahoma until deciding to return to Kansas to work for Jensen Bros. He was then offered and accepted full-time employment as show cattle manager for Bohi Land & Cattle, located outside of Kansas City, Kan. Recognizing an opportunity for career advancement, Andee interviewed for and accepted the job as AHA fieldman and packed his bags to move to Nashville, Tenn., to start a new endeavor with the Hereford breed. After accepting the job, he remembers saying to Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of field management and seedstock marketing, “I don’t know much about being a fieldman.” Rickabaugh reassured him by replying, “Don’t worry; you can always call John Meents; he will have all the answers.” During the past three years, Andee has traveled to shows, sales and Hereford operations in eight Southeast states. He covers several thousand miles each year and has come to think of the Hampton Inn as a second home. Year-round he works closely with breeders, assisting them in marketing purebred and commercial cattle. Public relations is a big portion of Andee’s job. He has become the familiar face at shows and sales throughout the Southeast. He is a spokesperson for the breed at state association meetings. These events give Andee an opportunity to communicate with members, informing them of new services and upcoming Hereford World deadlines. He says he treasures the connections made at the AHA. Wednesday is his favorite day of the week; this is his time to catch up on Hereford events in different parts of the country during the fieldmen conference call. John Meents, AHA field representative for the Upper Midwest, compliments his coworker, “Andee is one of the great bright stars on the AHA staff. He is super knowledgeable of beef cattle, has a great eye for the good ones and is a very dedicated, hard-working staff member. It is great

to have Andee on board, and I enjoy working with him.” Andee is enthusiastic about the future of the breed in the next five to 10 years. He says the table is set for a change in the way the cattle industry works. He speaks confidently about the breed, “Cattlemen all over the country are looking for stock that will move their herds in the right direction. A good Hereford bull or female is the perfect answer.” Andee continues adding, “Cattlemen are beginning to see the improvements heterosis can bring to a herd and how it will put more money into your pocket.” In years to come, the Hereford breed is poised to gain market share against other breeds. Andee challenges breeders to sell a product that continues to improve with each generation. Andee’s favorite aspect of his job is going to Hereford events and establishing friendships with people in the breed. David and Beth Burns, Burns Farms, Pikeville, Tenn., have become close friends with Andee through the years. Beth and Andee attended college together. Andee has enjoyed watching Burns Farms grow and was honored to be a part of its first sale in November. “Andee was instrumental in the success of our first sale,” David says. “He was involved all along the way. He helped with mating advice, advertising, brochure and catalog layout, as well as on sale day. Southeastern Hereford breeders are lucky to have such a valuable resource at their disposal.” Andee says he is grateful for the people who have made a difference in his life, shaping him into the person he is today. His parents, Twig and Mary, have been amazing role models and provided him and his sister, Katie, with the cattle lifestyle. He says his parents taught him the importance of pursuing his dreams and working hard to accomplish his goals. When talking about his future, Andee says, “This Hereford thing must be contagious.” Without a doubt, Andee will be in the Hereford breed for a lifetime, as he will marry Robin Valek, a Kansas Hereford breeder, this February. Her family has raised Herefords for three generations in north central Kansas. Robin received an agriculture journalism degree from K-State in December. Andee is an inspiration for Hereford junior members across the country. Like many juniors he was competitive in the showring; and because he valued hard work, dedication and education, he has climbed his way to the top as a leader in the beef industry.

Hereford Heifer in Top Five at Hoosier Beef Congress

A Hereford heifer, shown by Cody Beck, Bainbridge, Ind., placed fourth overall at the Hoosier Beef Congress in Indianapolis. Cody’s heifer, EF Mona 607 907, is a daughter of MH Monument 3147 and was bred by Bruce Everhart. She qualified for the grand

drive by winning first-place Hereford heifer. This is the first time a Hereford heifer has made the top 5 at the Hoosier Beef Congress. There were 784 total heifers exhibited. HW

• This is a bull we would like to use in our herd, but looks like we don’t have the cows as we have too many sisters out of Fusion. I think Impulse could add a lot of red, a lot of muscle and a lot of milk to your cow herd. His sire is Fusion out of Momentum and Joy. His dam is a Standard Lad daughter. Her dam goes back to CL 1 Domino 501. Lots of good breeding in this bull. Come see our pair and herd bull at the Northeast Texas Sale, March 13, 2010.
