espite the freezing December weather, it’s smiles all around as Fred and Donna Borman load out another 1,000 head of black baldie calves from their Hysham, Mont., feedlot. Weaned for at least 45 days, the calves are big, happy and calm as they stroll across the scale, putting up one big fat number after another. The Bormans credit another successful year, in large part, to the advantages of their F1 Hereford-Angus cross. “Since we started using Hereford bulls, we have bigger, longer, stouter calves that weigh more and are healthier,” Fred says. “They gain well, they don’t get sick and they finish great. The guys that finish them just love them.”

The proof is in their repeat customers. Though the Bormans sell the calves on Superior Livestock Auction, their calves often end up going to the same buyers year after year. Taking delivery of the day’s shipment of steers was Rock Valley, Iowa, order buyer Earl DeBey. DeBey purchased 900 heifer calves from the Bormans’ Circle B Ranch in 2009. “We like black baldie calves, and these performed really well,” DeBey says. “We tried to buy (the heifers) back this year, but they went for breeding, so we couldn’t compete.” The heifers were turned out on cornstalks in Wisner, Neb., until Feb. 28 then put on a solid 2.76 lb. per day throughout feeding, DeBey reports.

“The cattle were extremely healthy,” DeBey says. Healthier calves in the feedlot are likely a direct result of the changes the Bormans have made in their breeding operation, says Scott Anderson, Prewitt and Co. livestock marketer and one of the Bormans’ many advisors. “I’ve been marketing the Bormans’ cattle for seven years, and when they brought in the Hereford bulls, you saw more frame, more size and a better disposition,” he says. “I think the improved health comes somewhat from that calm disposition. High-strung cattle will experience more stress and have more health issues.” Rodney Vance, the Bormans’ feedlot manager, reports that on continued on page 14...

by Craig Huffhines, executive vice president

Changing Mindset to Meet the Demand I’ve heard an “ol’ timer” Hereford breeder say, “I was there during the good old days when Herefords were king, but today may be better.” Unquestionably, the demand for the Hereford breed has escalated at a pace that will soon become very difficult for the Hereford seedstock industry to meet in the coming years. This paradigm shift has come at a time when the industry has needed it most. Costs have certainly escalated

on the average farm and ranch, and producers are looking for ways to enhance the productivity of their cow herd without driving up cost. Maternal heterosis is an increasingly real and understood advantage from Hereford crossbreeding, and the inherent Hereford breed attributes such as easy disposition, fertility and longevity that were previously unheralded have suddenly become crucial to driving

chuffhin@hereford.org

out cost and creating convenience and profit on the ranch. This shift in the mindset of the commercial cattle producer to a greater appreciation for what this historic Hereford beef breed brings to the table must be accompanied by a shift in the mindset of the average Hereford breeder. This may come as quite a shock to some of our Hereford breeders out there, but the average Hereford breeder may have a bit of protectionism in his DNA. Certainly there are explainable reasons that have conditioned longtime

Hereford breeders to think this way, but as a rule Hereford breeders keep things pretty close to the vest when it comes to communication, customer relations and customer contacts. For an industry that has faced trying times and competitive situations that took away market share, this mindset is understandable. During the 1970s and 1980s, plenty of new breeds of cattle evolved into composite breeds that attacked the market share base of the Hereford breed. Naturally, producers believed every customer was a precious commodity because every customer mattered to the livelihood and survival of the family operation. Today, the reality of the market place is changing. The Hereford breed has worked extremely hard over the last decade to make gigantic improvement in the quality of the average Hereford animal. The breed trends for birth weight, growth, milk production and, now, carcass traits have made remarkable progress. The adaptation of technology utilizing artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) through the use of proven genetics has created a value for elite seedstock not seen since the early 1980s, but this time with real-world economic purpose. Therefore, I’m suggesting Hereford breeders must become more openminded when it comes to customer development and marketing. We should not worry about whether or not one of our customers buys a bull from a neighboring Hereford breeder or, for that matter, neighboring breeder of another breed. Science tells us crossbreeding is a reality that must be adopted, and I’m sure there will be times when a commercial man may need to change where he’s buying his Hereford genetics for the same reasons. Today, the pie has gotten much bigger. Market share opportunity is as great as the individual breeder wants to m ake it. It will become increasingly important that you reach this vast and growing customer base through whatever means possible.

Why transfers are important Currently most Hereford range bulls sold across the country are not transferred to their new owners. A transfer of ownership is simply a breeder reporting the new ownership of the animal to the buyer where it’s recorded with the American Hereford Association (AHA). The transfer of the animal costs the breeder only $5 per animal. Some breeders today continue to document the transfer of every animal they sell with the AHA. They understand that by transferring the ownership of a bull, essential contact information for that customer reaches the AHA so that the AHA can communicate with that customer.

Coley Joins AHA, Hereford World Staff as Field Rep There are also those who refuse to transfer the ownership of their bulls to their customer. Breeders have stated several reasons for not transferring animals to new owners, but most of them are concerned with the commercial customer being exposed to other breeders. Today, the customer base opportunity is growing rapidly. This expanding customer base makes transfer of ownership an important part of AHA’s overall marketing plan. Past AHA survey data have indicated that bull customers on the transfer list are 10 times more loyal to the breed than those who haven’t used Hereford bulls. Undoubtedly, these cow-calf operators have an appreciation for Hereford genetics, but then they are also kept in the Hereford industry loop through direct communication. Every commercial customer who purchases Hereford seedstock is precious to not only the breeder but also to the AHA. The AHA, its Board and its staff think enough of these customers that we want to reach out to them and provide information to them any chance we can get. Information comes in the form of a tabloid magazine, an e-newsletter or special mailings of upcoming events or sales. In other words, we want them to feel as if they are a part of the Hereford business, and we want them to keep the image of the Hereford breed topof-mind when they think of buying bulls. Touching our customers at least four to five times a year is critical to sustaining a marketing relationship with them. The AHA can deliver these touches as part of a breeder’s extended promotional plan. Secondly, we want to take every opportunity to provide information that might help commercial customers better market their calves. The Hereford-influenced female, whether she’s straight Hereford, baldie or F1 tiger striped, has quickly become the most marketable maternal package in the country. The AHA can assist your commercial customer in adding value to packaged specification females and thereby adding another source of revenue for a commercial operation. This can be accomplished through field service support or online auction services that will plug these packaged females into high demand markets. BuyHereford.com, the AHA’s online auction service, has had more success in marketing commercial females than any other product line sold on the site in the last year. Times have changed and will continue to change for the better for the Hereford breed and for Hereford breeders. It’s time we have the confidence to open new market opportunities while making all Hereford customers feel welcome in what is becoming a very robust and vibrant marketplace for Hereford genetics. HW

The American Hereford Association (AHA) and Hereford World (HW) staff are excited to announce Tommy Coley, Birmingham, Iowa, has joined the Hereford team. Coley will start Feb. 1 as the Eastern region field representative. In this position, Coley will attend Hereford sales and events as well as assist breeders with marketing and genetic selection. He will also assist in educating members and commercial producers about AHA programs and other beef industry opportunities. He will serve as the communication link between the AHA and breeders in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. “We feel very fortunate to hire someone with the depth of working knowledge of the Hereford breed that Tommy has,” says Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of field management and seedstock marketing. “Tommy will be moving back to Tennessee and is excited about the opportunity to work with breeders from the same area where he grew up.”

Coley has been involved in the Hereford industry since birth and has been involved in the beef industry his entire career. He served as general manager of Perks Ranch, Rockford, Ill., for 12 years. Since 2005 he has operated Coley Cattle Co. and for two years he has served as a field representative for Keosauqua Sales Co., Keosauqua, Iowa. Coley judged the 2009 National Western Stock Show National Hereford Show. “I’m excited to utilize my experience in marketing, promotions, cattle selection and people skills to serve the breeders in the Eastern region and help them make their Herefords the breed of choice for both commercial and registered breeders,” Coley says. Coley and his wife, Kim, have five children. HW

Stahly NRSP Results Announced The Hereford breed continues to gain market share within the commercial industry. This was made clear after the survey done last spring prior to the American Hereford Association (AHA) Strategic Planning meeting. The commercial producers who were surveyed showed a great deal of interest in continuing to add wellproven and documented Hereford genetics to their breeding programs. Economically relevant traits (ERT) like calving ease, disposition and fertility were on the high priority list. In the AHA 2010 Strategic Plan, core strategy 1: Improve the overall quality, consistency, predictability and profitability of Hereford genetics, an important focus is objective B: Grow

research and National Reference Sire Program (NRSP). It has become evident that the NRSP is one of the most important programs for the AHA to quickly identify the young sires that can make a difference in the breed. Printed here, you will find the results of the Stahly Ranch test. Mike and Judy Stahly own and operate Stahly Ranch, Cavour, S.D., and they have utilized young Hereford sires in their commercial herd for years. This is one of the structured tests that the AHA utilizes to provide strength and accuracy to a sire’s genetic make-up. In addition to these tests, the AHA membership has done a great job of finding the genetics that will

move the breed in the right direction and provide their customers with the product they need to be profitable. This will continue to be a challenge as commercial cattlemen from around the country look to Herefords for their programs. With this challenge comes responsibility. As a seedstock producer, you will need to continue to throw prejudice out the door and make decisions based on data and needs. Keep up the good work and remember to submit young sires that you would like tested in the NRSP. You can find a form in the January Hereford World or online at Hereford.org/NRSP, or contact me at jward@hereford.org or 816-842-3757. HW

Hereford breeders can order copies of the Harris Heterosis Research Project final report titled Impacts of Crossbreeding on Profitability in Vertically Coordinated Beef Industry Marketing Systems, which was included with the January Hereford World and is available online at Hereford.org/HarrisHeterosisProject. Various package sizes are available, including 10, 25, 50 and 100 copies. To place your order, contact Angie Denton at adenton@hereford.org or 785-363-7263.

Eighty-eight dedicated Hereford breeders achieved Gold TPR™ (Total Performance Records) status for spring 2011, according to the AHA. 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:

Churchill Cattle Co., Manhattan, Mont. Mark Cooper, Willow Creek, Mont.

Schu-Lar Polled Herefords, Lecompton, Kan.

Courtney Herefords, Belle Fourche, S.D.

Educational Forums DVD available Hereford breeders can order a DVD of the Educational Forums presentations from the 2010 American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting. Each DVD costs $25, which includes shipping and handling. To order online visit HerefordPhotoshop.com. Presentations on the DVD include: Fact or Fiction: Genomics and Its Role in Breed Improvement, by Dorian Garrick, Iowa State University; Reproductive Success: Integrating Technology Into Your Breeding Program, by Dr. David Faber, Trans Ova Genetics; Animal Welfare: What does that mean to me as a Hereford breeder?, by Dave Daley, California State University, Chico; Advocating for Agriculture: Stand Up and Tell Your Story, by Daren Williams, NCBA executive director; and Strategizing for the Future: What Hereford Breeders Need to Do the Next Five Years to Meet Customer Needs the panel including, Paul Bennett, Montie Soules, Marty Lueck, Lorna Marshall, Mark Akin, Bobby Harrell and Dave Daley.

New data online The Spring 2011 Sire Summary, published by the AHA, is available in print and online at Hereford.org. A total of 2,228 sires are listed in the summary. There are 880 proven sires, 769 young sires and 194 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 889 highest accuracy bulls for carcass traits. Sire entries include not only expected progeny differences (EPDs) but also $Profit Indexes for cattlemen who prefer to look at one number rather than many to identify the most profitable genetics for their production scenarios. The four indexes are Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$), 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.

New sire DNA policy The AHA will require all Hereford sires born after Jan. 1, 2011, to be DNA genotyped at the official AHA DNA laboratory before their progeny can be registered. This policy has been adopted to improve the quality control of pedigrees. Numerous times during the year, AHA staff identifies pedigree mistakes, and the discovery comes at times when it is very difficult to make a determination of correct parentage of an animal. Genotyping walking herd sires will be very beneficial toward minimizing this issue in a cost-effective manner.

Use Y for 2011 The year letter code for 2011 is Y. This notice is for producers who use letter codes in their identification system. For more on tattoo and identification tips, visit the Education Center at Hereford.org.

...Healthier and Heavier continued from the cover

Scott Anderson, Prewitt and Co. marketing specialist, is one of many experts the Bormans use to help them be a profitable and thriving cattle operation. He advises on everything from health to cattle groupings and helps connect them with the right buyers for their value-added product.

Feedlot manager Rodney Vance punches a scale ticket as another group of all-natural, hormone-free black baldie calves head across the scale and to the waiting trucks. The feedefficient F1 crosses gain about 3 lb. per day in the feedlot, packing on 130 lb. or more in their 45- to 60-day stay.

An F1 Hereford-Angus cross has produced good-growing, healthy calves that, along with value-added programs, help the Bormans achieve top dollar on sale day.

Fred and Donna Borman came to Montana 12 years ago looking for a new challenge; they found it in cattle production.

3,700 calves the pull rate is about 5% with only 1% of all pulls needing retreatment. Death loss is less than 0.1%. Statistics are good in the pasture, too. With good, low birth weight bulls, cow boss Jay Shaw says that of the 1,100 head he calves at the ranch south of Miles City, Mont., he has to pull only four or five calves, usually due to feet being turned back. “The cows calve in the hills, and they’re pretty much on their own, so it’s important to have a calf that jumps up and goes right away,” Shaw says. “We shoot for around 80 lb. at birth.” Between the hybrid vigor of their cross and healthier calves in the pasture and in the feedlot Fred has seen a significant difference. “The cross has given us about 50 lb. more per calf,” Fred says. “And I think they feed more efficiently than the straight Angus calves.” Spread over the 4,000-cow operation, that efficiency means a significant bump in profit potential. Going to the F1

/ February 2011

Hereford cross is one of many management decisions the Bormans have made to boost profits for themselves and their buyers in the last 10 years — which is how long they’ve been in the cattle business.

A new challenge Fred, Donna and Fred’s parents, Frank and Susan Borman, came to Montana in 1998, looking for a new challenge. The younger Bormans ran a successful line of car dealerships in North Carolina, and Frank had reached many peaks in the aviation world — serving in the Air Force, manning space flights on Gemini 7 and Apollo 8 as a NASA astronaut, and serving as CEO of Eastern Airlines for 10 years. “When we first came to Montana, we purchased a piece of land and were farming part of it,” Frank recalls. “We were told we had better start raising cattle if we wanted the land investment to pay for itself.” So they did. Donna bought a book titled “Storey’s Guide To Raise Beef Cattle,” and they purchased 125 head of Angus cows to run the rough pastures around the scenic Big Horn river near Big Horn, Mont. They quickly found their best source of knowledge wasn’t in a book but in the generations of beef-producing families surrounding them. The Bormans started putting together a team of people to help them build and manage a profitable operation. Today, the Bormans have built their operation to 4,000 head that run on two ranches spanning about 160,000 acres of deeded and leased land. They also have a 4,300-head feedlot for weaning calves and wintering bulls and select cows. They raise all their own feed for the feedlot on their farm ground and may one day open it to feeding other livestock. Their team of ranch managers, marketing specialists, feedlot managers and crew has a combined 200 years of ranching experience from which the Bormans draw regularly. “I don’t hesitate to get input from our crew, and they’ve been a large part of our success,” Fred says. “We’ve got a bunch of really sharp, really good guys that I rely on.” It was through their help that the Bormans came to consider www.hereford.org


Value-added programs

Cow boss Jay Shaw helps move the Bormans’ 225 Hereford bulls in from the hills for the winter. Bulls are selected for the ranch by their trusted seedstock source Marvin Feddes and Sons.

crossbreeding. Donna, for one, thought it was a great idea. “One of the first things my book talked about was the benefits of crossbreeding,” Donna says. “It made sense when I was reading the book, and it made sense when we decided to do it on our operation.” The Bormans had always purchased 3-year-old replacements, so it wasn’t difficult to make the transition to an F1 cross program. They started shopping around for a good cross. They tried Gelbvieh and then bought a pair of Hereford bulls from the proven pens of Marvin Feddes and Sons in Manhattan, Mont. Herefords won out. “We looked at other breeds, but we just like the Hereford bulls better,” Fred recalls. “They’re easier to be around, easier to handle and they made a dramatic difference in the calves.” The Bormans picked the Feddeses after researching the best herds in the area. “They’ve got really good birth weights, their EPDs are awesome and they’ve been around forever,” Fred says. “They’ve won the show in Denver and were the supreme champion pen at the NILE (Northern International Livestock Exposition). They’re a proven commodity.”

A trusted resource True to their method of raising cattle, Fred and his team lean heavily on the experienced breeders to secure the best bulls. “The first time they came to us they had us pick out two bulls for them to try, and they must have liked them because they came back for 25 more,” says Dan Feddes. Now the Feddeses pick out about 50 bulls per year to keep the Bormans’ 225-head bull battery fully stocked. www.hereford.org

“I’ve been marketing the Bormans’ cattle for seven years, and when they brought in the Hereford bulls, you saw more frame, more size and a better disposition.” — Scott Anderson “It’s very unusual for a customer to let us pick the bulls, but it’s actually very smart because we really know our bulls best. We know their genetics and what they can do,” Feddes says. “There’s a tremendous amount of trust involved, and we take it as a huge compliment.” About half of the Feddeses’ bulls now go to the Circle B, so they’re sure to pick bulls that will help push the Bormans’ operation to even greater levels, keeping a close eye on their needs. “Our herd has always been known for cows that milk,” Feddes says. “At first, the Bormans weren’t keeping replacement heifers, but now they’re selling replacements, so they’ll be able to take advantage of that.” The Feddeses also are paying close attention to the new carcass EPDs, sending bulls to the Circle B that score well for ribeye and marbling, traits they hope help earn the Bormans repeat customers. “We watch the calves sell every year, and they pretty much top the market,” Feddes says. “They’re definitely doing things right.” Helping the Bormans top the market are the value-added

programs the Circle B follows. The calves are marketed as allnatural, age- and source-verified, Non-Hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC) coming from a private, closed feedlot. “We want the whole process to be more profitable for us and our buyers,” Donna says. “Being allnatural and hormone-free helps us achieve that.” Healthy, thriving Hereford calves fit right into that philosophy. Calves that get sick in the feedlot have to be treated and are then pulled from the natural program, costing premiums. With Hereford-cross calves, pulls are held down and profit potential remains high. But Donna provided possibly the best reason of all to go with a Hereford cross. “The black baldie calves are just so much cuter,” she jokes. HW

From the beginning the Bormans have managed the Circle B Ranch as an all-natural, hormone-free operation. “We think the market is going that way and that there is a lot of consumer awareness and desire to stay away from cattle that have been treated with hormones to get bigger, faster,” Fred Borman says. “We think these programs pay for themselves, and we make more money with them.” The Circle B’s feeder calves were the first in Montana to be Non-Hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC) approved and one of the first to be verified all-natural by IMI Global. They are age- and source-verified as well. “Our verified natural beef has been shown through third-party verification to bring a $100 or more per-head advantage for our buyers,” Fred says. “The advantages of these cattle start with the breeding and then goes to the programs they’re on,” says Scott Anderson, Prewitt and Co. livestock marketing specialist. “Buyers are willing to pay more for these cattle because they know what they have behind them.” Calves are weaned and brought to the closed feedlot over two weeks, starting mid-September. Upon arrival they’re sorted for sex and given an eID tag for IMI source- and age-verification. Any horns missed at branding are tipped, and the calves are vaccinated and dewormed. In accordance with the Vac-45 plan that the Bormans follow, the calves are then backgrounded at the Bormans' yard for a minimum of 45 days. When the calves arrive at the feedlot, they weigh about 500 lb. and gain about 3 lb. per day. They’re started on a weaning pellet for 28 days and then are moved to a grower pellet, silage and hay. “The goal is to put weight on them without the calves getting too fleshy,” says Rodney Vance, the Circle B feedlot manager. Once all the calves are on a grower ration, they’re sorted by color and size to fit contracts. Calves leave the feedlot at about 680 lb. at a cost of gain of $0.69 per lb. “We like backgrounding calves, and we really think it works, especially because we grow most of our own feed,” Fred says. They purchased and rebuilt the 4,300head feedlot in Hysham, Mont., three years ago, making backgrounding more cost effective. “The buyers really like the calves on the Vac-45 program because when they get them, they’re weaned, healthy and they go straight to eating without any problems.” And the Bormans’ various value-added programs give buyers the flexibility to profit, too. The 1,000 head of steers Iowa order buyer Earl DeBey picked up from the Bormans this year will be fed and sold to Creekstone Farms, Arkansas City, Kan., which markets antibiotic and hormone-free beef, at a premium.

— honestly, world-wide — at a very minimal cost,” says John Meents, AHA northeast field representative. “It gives the small breeder an equal playing field.” To consign to the sale there is an initial nonrefundable, up-front fee of $50 per pictured animal or product or $75 for a videoed animal or product. Once the animal or product is sold, a 12% commission will be deducted from the sale price for registered cattle and 6% for commercial cattle.

o assist producers in marketing, 15 months ago the American Hereford Association (AHA) launched BuyHereford.com, an online auction Web site that features regular consignment auctions. The site gives consignors the power to reach potential customers worldwide. Designed to help producers with any herd size, this service provides a marketing option for those producers who do not host annual production sales but can also be a complementary outlet for those who do host a production sale. AHA members can consign females, bulls, steers, cow-calf pairs, donor dams, embryos, semen, picks of the herd or flush

rights. Commercial female lots and groups of feeder calves can also be listed. Offerings are not just limited to Hereford genetics; consignments can also include equipment such as chutes, trailers, show tack and equipment, or feed. Breeders can also host their own BuyHereford.com sale or utilize BuyHereford.com to promote an upcoming production sale. Last fall Split Butte Livestock, Minidoka, Idaho, and Middle Creek Ranch, Carthage, Ill., hosted individual online sales. Journagan Ranch, Mountain Grove, Mo., utilized BuyHereford.com prior to its production sale to advertise its sale offering. Marty Lueck, Journagan Ranch manager, worked with AHA staff

The process: bidding online Every buyer must sign up on the site and be prequalified to be an approved buyer at the auction. The Wendt Group is responsible for collection of the proceeds for each purchase before delivery and will guarantee consignor payment within 30 days of the auction. To sign up as a bidder: • Go to BuyHereford.com and click on “Register” at the top of the page. • Read the “Online Auction Terms and Conditions/User Agreement.” • If you accept the agreement, you will then need to select “I Agree” and this will prompt you to fill out a bidder profile with your name, contact information and credit card information. • After you submit a profile, the auction system will e-mail you a bidder number. • You can use this bidder number and a password you selected when registering to bid on all BuyHereford.com online sales.

to video the sale lots. AHA staff then edited the videos and posted to BuyHereford.com with footnotes. This allowed visitors to view video several weeks prior to the sale. The videos were also utilized during the sale. In early January, BuyHereford.com had 241 registered bidders from 37 states and Canada. Since September the site has had 38,294 page view by 6,963 unique visitors. “BuyHereford.com is a tremendous opportunity for smaller breeders to market their Hereford genetics nationally

The idea for BuyHereford.com is not new to the livestock industry. A similar online auction system has been very successful in the pig industry. Kevin Wendt, a bonded professional auctioneer and owner of The Wendt Group, started www.showpig.com. “After the first year, it doubled the volume of animals sold,” explains Meents. “The next year it doubled again. In fact it doubled in dollars every year the first five years. I think BuyHereford.com could very possibly take the same growth curve.” To start BuyHereford.com, AHA contracted with the The Wendt Group. This organization has a team of customer service people led by representative Tyler Humphrey, who works with breeders to post their listings on the site. Breeders can also contact their AHA field representative to help them with the process. See “The process: consigning” and “The process: bidding online” for tips on how to consign or bid online. If you are interested in consigning or obtaining more information about BuyHereford.com, contact your AHA field representative; Joe Rickabaugh at 816-218-2280 or Tyler Humphrey of The Wendt Group at 419-230-3450.

AnimalWellfare

Through a Different Lens Producers need to consider outside views. by Dave Daley, California State University, Chico

T

Dave Daley shared his thoughts on animal welfare issues with Hereford breeders during the 2010 Annual Meeting Educational Forums. You can order a DVD with his and other forum presentations at HerefordPhotoshop.com.

he animal rights debate seems to get more divisive and argumentative each day. We spend our time looking at undercover videos, responding to false allegations or accusing the other side of trying to destroy all of animal agriculture. As an industry, we do very little that is proactive, and we find ourselves in a defensive posture more often than not. My experience at a university — working with people who don’t understand animal agriculture — has given me an appreciation for those with diverse and different viewpoints. I have watched our students struggle to convince people that we truly care about our livestock and, for the most part, do the

right thing. Perhaps we need to change the way we talk to those we disagree with. Perhaps we should also learn to listen before we attack. As I traveled from a speaking engagement in Idaho back to Sacramento a couple of months ago, I thought about how we have effectively lost the argument on animal welfare/rights in the minds of the general public. We are positioned as the “bad guy,” always defending what we do. I think there is a solution in learning how to dialogue and build trust with those that we disagree with. On that trip I penned a few ideas that I have observed over the past several years. These are sure-fire ways to lose our argument with the

Results from animal rights survey The following survey was administered in three locations in 2009 to more than 200 participants. Those completing the survey included a cross-section of large and small producers, including purebred, cow-calf and stocker operators, as well as some young cattlemen and allied industry representatives. Percentage response to most questions did not vary across type of producer or location of the survey. Surveys were conducted at Beef Day at California State University, Chico; the Harris Ranch Partnership for Quality Seminar, Coalinga, Calif.; and the California and Nevada Cattlemen and CattleWomen’s Convention in Sparks, Nev. Although the survey was not scientific, it is evident that cattlemen are interested in creating a proactive dialogue with people from outside our industry. A clear majority believes that animals have rights, and it was almost unanimous that animals “have the right to be treated humanely and ethically.” The small percentage of respondents who said animals don’t have the right often clarified by commenting, “We have the responsibility to treat animals humanely and ethically, but it is not a right.” With respect to the questions on non-ambulatory (downer) cows at the sale barn, it is already illegal to transport a non-ambulatory cow to slaughter. However, cattlemen were adamant that we shouldn’t take that act lightly — even suggesting criminal/civil penalties when it does occur. Perhaps the most interesting observation is how willing cattle producers were to investigate practical, cost-effective solutions to what could be considered invasive practices (castration, dehorning, etc.). The fact that cattle producers are willing to look for solutions that continue to improve the stewardship and welfare of the animals they care for is a testament to their progressive, forward-looking nature.

What should be the consequences for a producer if he/she unloads a downer cow and leaves her in public view?

public when it comes to the way we raise our livestock.

Here is how producers lose the argument on animal welfare:

✗ Assuming science will give us all the answers.

Science only gives us some of the answers. I believe strongly in science but science doesn’t solve ethical questions. Also, the public does not trust scientists and assumes they can be bought. Watch the news and it is easy to find “scientists” on both sides of almost every issue. It has become a contest of “my science is better than your science.”

✗ Not working hard enough to build coalitions that include the public (consumers).

Most of our coalition efforts are focused on bringing agricultural groups together. There aren’t enough of us, and we don’t represent enough votes on major political issues.

✗ Criticizing/mocking any animal production system that is not “conventional.”

✗ Trying to lead a parade without seeing if anyone is following.

Have we asked producers about the issue? I have surveyed more than 200 cattlemen in three locations, and more than 90% of them say, “Animals have the RIGHT to be treated humanely and ethically.” To see how cattlemen surveyed feel about animal welfare, see the questions and results of the survey on the previous page. HW

I think there is a solution in learning how to dialogue and build trust with those that we disagree with.

There is room in agriculture for lots of different methods of production. Let the market determine their success rather than our hoping for them to fail.

— Dave Daley

Using economics as the justification for all of our practices.

Although it makes sense to those of us who raise animals for a living to say, “Well of course we treat them well or we won’t make money,” statements like these really hurt our efforts with the public. In other words, if this is all about making money rather than working with animals, we would probably be in another line of work. We need to convince the public that we truly care about animals, not just about dollars. Besides that, it is not always true. You can have extreme conditions that are not good for animals that can be profitable.

Doing the

Right

Things An animal welfare checklist for your cow-calf operation.

by Kindra Gordon

W

hen most people think about cow-calf operations, they visualize wide-open spaces, green grass, horse and rider, and a beautiful environment. But, the reality is that cowcalf operations are an outdoor production system and conditions are less than idyllic most of the year. Cattle are affected by changing weather conditions, nutrition issues and diseases. These factors present animal welfare challenges that must be addressed at the cow-calf level, say Kansas State University faculty K.C. Olson and Chris Reinhardt. Olson is an associate professor of cow-calf nutrition and

management, and Reinhardt is an associate professor and Extension feedlot specialist. As animal welfare becomes an increasingly notable issue among the public, Olson and Reinhardt suggest there are several areas that cow-calf producers must consider with respect to animal welfare. Many of these management areas involve things that cow-calf producers are already doing — but simply require better communication with the public as to how and why they are being done. Veterinarian and stockmanship expert Tom Noffsinger says it boils down to doing the right things — at all times. He suggests that livestock caregivers should approach their

interactions with and handling of animals as if someone were following them with a video camera. Noffsinger says, “This industry has a foundation in integrity and character and we need to build on that.” So, what are the “right things” when it comes to animal welfare? Here’s a checklist to consider.

Nutrition and grazing management: Keeping livestock well-fed and at an appropriate body condition is a key animal welfare component. “Sub-par or malnutrition can occur when stocking rates are too heavy or too light. Both situations result in poor diet quality,” Olson says. He explains that when overgrazed, a plant only offers basal stems with

Using science to measure animal welfare Demonstrating and communicating animal welfare practices is becoming increasingly important as the topic becomes a trade issue — particularly in Europe, where several mandates are already in place. It is also a movement that is gaining momentum with many international trading partners such as Japan, China, Korea and Brazil. To that end, Jeffrey Rushen provided an overview of the importance for scientific assessment of animal welfare to participants at the International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare May 20, 2010, on the campus of Kansas State University. Rushen is a researcher in dairy cattle welfare at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Centre in Agassiz, British Columbia, and an adjunct professor in the Animal Welfare Program at the University of British Columbia and the University of Laval in Quebec. Rushen explained that many like to downplay the high animal care standards in Europe, saying they are based on emotion rather than science. But Rushen says the Europeans are starting to build a very formal system of regulations based on science. For that reason, Rushen says a risk assessment approach to animal welfare is becoming increasingly important. He defined risk assessment as a generally accepted, repeatable, transparent and validated measurement.

Rushen says, “It’s a myth that pain cannot be measured in animals. Studies show us that pain control can be measured using anesthetics and analgesics.” He adds, “Can we judge the emotions of animals? People are starting to do this.” Noting this, Rushen encouraged the beef industry to solve animal welfare problems while it has time to do so. He notes that consumers still perceive the cow-calf industry as fairly favorable with the image of cows on green grass. But he states that issues like indoor housing, muddy pens, transportation and pain of dehorning/castration need to be addressed. Rushen notes, “There is a broad agreement on many of the animal welfare practices; it’s just that different terms are being used.” He also suggests that future science should start measuring the “positive” things animals experience on farms. He says, “As scientists we’ve been good with science to measure pain, disease, stress. I think people would feel more comfortable knowing about animals’ play behavior and positive social relationships between animals.” Rushen concludes, “I think this is one of the directions that animal welfare needs to move — it’s not all bad; there is some positive interaction too.” HW

✓Appropriate calving season: Also, from an animal welfare consideration, Olson suggests scheduling the calving season so that calving and lactation coincide with peak forage quality may be more beneficial to the animals for calf survival rates and for nutrition for the cow — while also allowing for savings in feed costs.

Weaning management: Olson adds, “August weaning rather than October allows cows to restore body condition going into the winter months. Early weaning can be a critical animal welfare intervention especially in times of drought. The science says early weaned calves are equally as healthy and in some cases more healthy.”

Genetics: Olson explains that this aspect of “animal welfare” means matching the biological type of the cow to the environment. “A larger mature cow size increases nutrient requirements which increases maintenance costs — and can also result in bigger calves and more calving difficulty.” He gives the example of switching mature cow size from 1,350 lb. to 1,200 lb. For a 400-head herd, that’s 60,000 lb. less body weight, which means less feed, less cost, smaller calves born at birth and the potential for greater cow longevity.

Health protocols: Reinhardt emphasizes that good animal health begins with the cow-calf producer preparing calves for the weaning process and trying to reduce stress. “Preconditioning is becoming an obligation,” he says. Reinhardt identifies timely castration and dehorning, as well as vaccinations and 15 days of backgrounding, as important animal care practices prior to shipping calves.

Low-stress handling: With regard to animal care and handling, Noffsinger says, “The more we understand about animal interactions, the more we can move forward and be effective.” He advocates avoiding human voice around cattle, saying, “Cattle live where it’s quiet; they are not a verbally based species. So understanding this is a place to start.” Noffsinger adds, “Understand that your distance, angles, direction and the speed with which you respond to what an animal is doing impact how they will move.” He believes there should be no need for a driving aid of any kind. Along with this, he says, “Always put yourself in a situation where animals can see you. Go to the front of animals so they can see you and they can see where you want them to go.” As a final animal welfare tip, Noffsinger advises getting animals www.hereford.org

acclimated to facilities. He says, “Some Saturday run your heifers through your facility two or three times before you ever work them. It all takes preparation. When it’s time for cattle to be processed, it’s not a negative experience if they already know the facilities.”

Timely culling: Reinhardt says the state of health of cull bulls and cows should be considered before shipping. As a rule of thumb, Jennifer Woods, a livestock handling specialist from Blackie, Alberta, says, “The question is not ‘Can the animal walk on the trailer?’ It needs to be ‘Is the animal going to be able to walk off the trailer?’” She adds, “The transport of compromised animals is one of the

little nutritive quality, and, conversely, when a plant is allowed to reach reproductive maturity (i.e. a seedhead), the nutritive quality is also low. Thus, Olson says, “A moderate stocking rate allows diet quality to remain high.”

most vulnerable issues for our industry because it is so visible.” She points out that transportation stressors to animals include handling, mixing, fatigue, environmental, and time off feed and water. “A normal healthy animal can handle these stresses; a compromised animal (lame, diseased, low body condition score) cannot.” Bottom line, Woods says, “If you wouldn’t eat the animal, don’t ship it and expect other people to.” All total, Reinhardt concludes, “Animal welfare starts with nutrition, and then it is really about decision making — when to calve, wean, market and what genetics to use. Along with those decisions, producers need to consider the weather — we can’t control

it, but we can manage and be prepared and make different decisions. We need to ask ourselves if we are causing some of our own problems with the choices we’ve made.” HW Editor’s Note: This article highlights comments provided by speakers at the International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare held in May 2010 on the campus of Kansas State University.

AnimalWellfare Producer integrity

Working Together for Industry Quality by Sara Gugelmeyer

Y

ou’re standing chute side, examining a sick calf. What type of medicine should you give it? Where should you inject it? What type of needle should you use? Now, hopefully you’ve spoken with your veterinarian, who can help you with these questions. But just as important is to follow Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) guidelines. “BQA is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions,” according to BQA literature. “These guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase — and can trust and have confidence in the entire beef industry.”

The problem Dee Griffin, veterinarian and professor at University of Nebraska’s Great Plains Veterinary Education Center, recalls when BQA came about. “The BQA program grew from a 1980s

36

/ February 2011

concern about residues in food. At that time beef cattle residue numbers were approximately 1.8%, the pork industry was well over 4% and three out of every 10 cans of fruits and vegetables had pesticide residue,” Griffin explains. “The real concern was nobody knew we had a problem.” At that time Griffin was working as the veterinarian for Hitch Enterprises, Guymon, Okla. Hitch was the first U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Verified Control Production beef operation. “We figured out that the majority of the problem was dealing with management outliers (cattle which require extra management), and within a matter of very few years, we had the number underneath the government target, which was under 1%.” The BQA program, funded by beef checkoff dollars, conducted research and then educated producers on the problem areas. “Approximately 25% of cattle had an injection site lesion,” Griffin says. “In vet school we were told to give shots deep in the muscle, and the rump or back leg was a favorite place.” Once producers were educated on better management practices relating to injections, many of the problems were

eliminated. BQA, however, isn’t just about giving shots. “It starts with animal husbandry,” Griffin says. “If you take care of the animal in such a way that it never gets sick, then you never have reason to worry about injections. The other issue is to verify what you do; keep records and analyze those records if you have a problem.” Jim Collins, the director of industry relations for the Southeastern Livestock Network and former quality assurance coordinator for the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association, stresses that the beauty of the BQA program is that it is producer driven instead of government mandated. “That’s why it works so well,” he says. The effectiveness of BQA begins at the state level. Nearly every state has its own BQA program, which is voluntary, locally led and administered through organizations such as state beef councils, land grant Universities and state cattle associations. BQA links beef producers with livestock specialists, veterinarians, nutritionists, marketers and food purveyors interested in maintaining and improving the quality of cattle and the beef they produce.

But more than anything, BQA relies on the integrity of each beef producer in the production chain, whether it’s in the pasture or feedyard. One such producer is Scott MacNair, co-owner of Cottonwood Corral Inc., Jetmore, Kan. Scott and his brother Michael have a large farming operation and a 2,000 head custom starter feedyard. They straighten out about 5,000 head of cattle a year for customers to feed out or graze on wheat pasture or grass. The starter yard can be the ultimate test of health protocols because it’s a place where cattle are already stressed. A majority of the cattle come in weighing 400-500 lb., and it’s the MacNairs’ job to help the cattle and the owners avoid health problems at the next phase, whether that be the feedyard, wheat field or grass pasture. Scott says, “We work really close with our vet on all health protocols. We’re all certainly here to get the best product on the market for the consumer. We’ve been doing this for a lot of years, and there’s been a lot of things change.” The most major change for them is injection protocols. Scott says they now avoid products that must be injected intramuscularly and always give injections in the neck. Griffin explains the reasoning behind subcutaneous shots is to avoid damage to the muscle, which will ultimately become meat. Research at Colorado State University proved that even an injection of saline in the animal’s muscle results in damage that will last more than a year. Also, Griffin says, tenderness is compromised up to four inches around the injection site. All of this adds up to a lot of trim and wasted meat. Scott says it’s obvious when cattle have received the best animal care prior to arriving in his pens. Last fall he started 1,600 source- and age-verified cattle to be fed at Ford County Feed Yard, some of which will qualify for the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) program. With those, he said his job is more processing than anything because the cattle have been preweaned and already received vaccinations. “There’s not really any health issues with them.” Death loss on those cattle has been .125%. Some of Cottonwood Corral’s customers prefer to buy cattle that are discounted to try to add value. Oftentimes these cattle are “cutting bulls” the MacNairs prepare for summer grass. In contrast, these cattle are weaned on the truck and have never been vaccinated, dehorned or castrated. Even with Scott’s innovative animal health program and www.hereford.org


diligent care, death loss on these cattle is usually around 1%. With all the extra stress and treatment, albeit necessary at this point, it is cattle like these that are most likely to end up a “management outlier” and jeopardize the safety of the food system.

to remember that each person should be responsible for his “We need the same effort from or her area of expertise.

steer calves rose about $13 above last year’s premium. Sale coordinator and American Hereford Association (AHA) President John Woolfolk says, “Once again THMP prices exceeded prices paid anywhere else in the region with some loads getting significant premiums. One consignor told me that when he compared his check to local prices, he was confident that participating in the THMP meant over $100 per calf to him.” The Certified Hereford Beef ® (CHB) and Hereford Verified eligible calves sold to six buyers. Breeders from Alabama and North Carolina participated in the sale, as well as those from Tennessee.

Herefords Sell Hereford feeder calf sales spread across the country. by Sara Gugelmeyer

F

rom Kentucky to Kansas, Tennessee to Montana, cattle buyers and sellers are coming together to prove the demand for Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder calves. Five sales were held May through the beginning of January, all with sellers earning equal or above-themarket price for their cattle. Feeder calf buyers are willing to pay more for quality, uniform, vaccinated, weaned groups of calves, like those at these sales. Plus, more and more cattlemen are realizing the value of Hereford’s efficiency: Hereford-sired calves will gain more while eating less (according to results from Harris Ranch Research Project). Each sale had its own individual requirements, but for all of them, calves had to be at least 50% Hereford, vaccinated with a standard protocol and weaned for at least 30 days. The cattle were also sorted into load lots by weight and kind.

Kentucky Certified Hereford Influenced Sale The second Kentucky Certified Hereford Influenced Sale replicated the success of the Kentucky Hereford Association’s first feeder calf sale. May 11, 2010, sellers earned premiums of more than $4 per hundredweight (cwt.) for heifers and about $3 per cwt. for steers compared to the weekly average price for each weight range. The 733 head of Hereford and Hereford-influenced calves

were sold at the Bluegrass South Livestock Market in Stanford, Ky. Word of the premiums earned in the first Kentucky Hereford sale in fall 2009 spread as consignors responded with about 200 head more up for bid. “Kentucky breeders and the Kentucky Hereford Association have done a great job promoting these sales to both sellers and buyers and that has played a major role in the success of both sales,” says Tim Dietrich, beef cattle marketing specialist for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

Kansas Hereford Stocker and Feeder Calf Sale On Oct. 22, 2010, the Kansas Hereford Association (KHA) hosted its 14th annual stocker and feeder calf sale at Manhattan Commission Co., Manhattan, Kan. Nine consignors earned from $130 to $134 per hundred cwt. on 400 to 500 lb. steers and $124 to $127.50 on 500 to 600 lb. steers. Heavier 600 to 700 lb. steers brought $115 to $117 per cwt. Heifers brought from $110 to a sale top $124 on replacement quality Hereford heifers averaging 597 lb. “The calves in this sale generally sold from $2 to $3 higher than like quality other-breed calves that were there the same day, once again proving the worth of Herefords,” says Tom Granzow, KHA secretary/manager.

Montana Hereford Association Feeder Calf Sale More than $750,000 worth of Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder calves sold Nov. 17, 2010, at the second-annual Montana Hereford Association (MHA) sponsored feeder calf sale. Twenty-seven consignors brought the 1,091 head to Headwaters Livestock Auction Yard, Three Forks, Mont. MHA Director Della Ehlke compared the prices paid with the U.S. Department of Agriculture weekly averages and other local sales. “In comparing the results of the MHA sale to feeder calves sold the same day at an auction in Billings, the price ranges for the 500, 600 and 700 weight steers and 500 and 700 weight heifers sold through the MHA sale exceeded those of the cattle sold in the other known Montana sale with the same date.”

Tennessee Hereford Marketing Program Feeder Calf Sale Buyers and sellers gathered for the annual Tennessee Hereford Marketing Program (THMP) Feeder Calf Sale Oct. 25, 2010. At the Tennessee Livestock Producers’ facility in Columbia, 42 consignors sold 605 head of age-, source- and health-verified Hereford and Hereford-cross calves for approximately $48.50 and $53 per head more on average than the reported weekly average, for steers and heifers respectively.

Greater Midwest Certified Hereford Feeder Calf Sale To kick off the new year, cattlemen and buyers gathered in Carthage, Ill., for the 4th Annual Greater Midwest Certified Hereford Feeder Calf Sale Jan. 4. Twenty-five consignors sold 516 head of Hereford and Herefordinfluenced feeder steers and heifers. “I think the calves sold well; some of the buyers commented that we really ‘hit the market,’” says Jerry Huth, one of the sale organizers and AHA director. Steers averaged: 400-500 lb. – $1.32, 501-600 lb. – $1.28, 601-700 lb. – $1.19, 701-801 lb. – $1.19. Heifers averaged: 400-500 lb. – $1.23, 501-600 lb. – $1.15, 601-700 lb. – $1.07, 701-750 lb. – $1.00.

Upcoming sales Still ahead this spring and summer are two more feeder calf sales you can take advantage of as a buyer or seller. The Missouri Hereford Association is hosting one April 11 and another July 11, 2011, in Eldon, Mo. Contact any Missouri Hereford Association board member for more information or call the sale barn at 573-392-5572. The bottom line is no matter what part of the country you’re in, if you’re looking for a way to earn good prices for your calves at marketing time, one option is clear.

Develop bulls so they are not overly fat or too thin.

Getting Bulls Ready Nutrition considerations before, during and after the breeding season. by Kindra Gordon

“W

hat should I be feeding my bulls?” South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension beef specialist Julie Walker says that is a question she is commonly asked by seedstock and commercial producers alike. Her advice to them is this; “The goal is to have bulls that have been developed on a balanced ration that are not too thin or overly fat.” She further explains that research has shown bulls with too little or too

much condition can have poor reproduction and fertility. To that end, she emphasizes, “Nutrition is very important for bulls.” To put it into context, she uses an example that while a cow produces one calf per year, a bull can potentially sire 25 to 60 calves per year — which means bulls should command some special management and care during the year. Walker encourages producers to pay special attention to bull nutrition before, during and after

the breeding season, with the following guidelines:

Prior to breeding season Yearling bulls should have a body condition score (BCS) of about 6 at the start of the breeding season, Walker recommends. To achieve that goal, she suggests accessing each bull’s body condition at least 30-60 days prior to turn-out to determine what management action should be taken.

Thin bulls should be put on a ration with a higher level of energy to increase rate of gain. Overconditioned bulls should be transitioned to a ration that will help reduce their body condition to the target BCS of 6 to prepare them for the breeding season. In either of these scenarios, Walker emphasizes that when you are changing diets to be more or less concentrated, the change in ration should be made gradually. Gradual change reduces the possibilities of metabolic disorders and impaired breeding performance, she explains. She also points out that ration changes prior to breeding can have an effect on reproductive performance because mature sperm is produced during a 60-day period before ejaculation. Thus, Walker says, “The nutritional effects of over- or underfeeding on sperm quantity and quality will have some carryover effect.” For bulls that are deemed “in good condition” 30-60 days prior to breeding, Walker says the key is to begin adapting them to a high forage ration prior to turnout on grass. She explains that the general method of stepping-down bulls is to gradually replace a portion of the concentrate in the ration with forage over several weeks until the bulls are consuming forage or forage plus a supplement, if needed. As a rule of thumb, she suggests reducing 10% of the concentrate in the ration per week with forage. “Ideally, this should start at least 30-60 days prior to turn-out and yearling bulls should continue to gain 1.5 to 2 lb. per day,” Walker says. Walker also says some special consideration should be given to purchased bulls and transitioning them to a new ration once you get them home.

Nutrition for bull calves For seedstock producers raising bulls, South Dakota State University Extension Beef Specialist Julie Walker offers this nutritional advice pre and postweaning:

PHoto By BEcky HArrEll

Preweaning: Under normal environments, the plane of nutrition from dam’s milk and forage should be adequate for normal growth rates of bull calves up to weaning at 6-9 months of age. “It is important that adequate nutrition is available to the dam during this time,” Walker says. She says early weaning or creep feeding could be considered when the calves’ plane of nutrition is less than desired; however, the cost must also be evaluated when making this decision.

Bulls can naturally sire 25-60 calves per year, so it is important to keep them in good condition and health.

50

/ February 2011

Postweaning: She suggests developing bulls at moderate rates of gain instead of high rates of gain and says there are many possibilities for rations — the best ration for each situation should be determined based on availability and cost of feed ingredients, she suggests. Walker reiterates that the key is developing the ration to meet the desired animal performance without over- or under-developing the bull. “Under-nutrition results in delayed puberty and over-nutrition can reduce semen production and quality,” says Walker. (Nutrient requirements for growing bulls can be found through the Extension service.) As a guideline, Walker says, typically, many of the diets to develop beef bulls contain from 40 to 60% concentrate. Higher planes of nutrition may overcondition bulls, she cautions. HW

www.hereford.org


“The key is to have consistency. Talk to the person you bought them from and see what they were feeding to help in deciding your ration and how to transition them,” she suggests.

During breeding season Walker admits that there is limited opportunity to manage bull nutrition during the breeding season. “They are basically on the same plane of nutrition as the cows,” she says. However, she says producers should still monitor the body condition score of bulls during the breeding season as well as observe the bulls’ ability to service the cows. She says it is normal for bulls to lose from 100-200 lb. during the breeding season. She adds, “If a bull gets extremely thin during the breeding season, you may want to replace him because his ability to service cows will probably be reduced.”

which can add some weight and extra value before they are taken to market.

Additional tips

For producers who may use bulls for two breeding seasons for both spring and fall calving herds, Walker says some extra nutritional management may be needed to ensure that bulls will be prepared to serve cows during each breeding season. “Bulls have a shorter time to replenish their weight loss before the next breeding season, so young bulls may need to be on a ration that allows them to gain 2 to 2.5 lb. per day to recover from weight loss,” she says. HW

In managing bulls for a successful breeding season, South Dakota State University Extension Beef Specialist Julie Walker also emphasizes: • conduct breeding soundness exams prior to breeding season each year for each bull. “this is important each year because a lot of things can impact fertility from one breeding season to the next,” she says.

• Make minerals and vitamins available to bulls year-round to ensure successful animal growth and breeding performance.

• Before and after breeding season, keep bulls in pens or pastures that are large enough to ensure adequate exercise to prepare bulls for the breeding season. “Bulls will remain sound longer and have more sex drive (libido) if they’ve had exercise,” Walker says. As a tip she suggests locating feeding areas away from water to encourage bulls to move around. Additionally, bunk space should be 24-30 inches per bull if all bulls are being fed at the same time.

• Develop a health protocol for herd bulls with your local veterinarian that addresses yearly vaccinations, parasite control and biosecurity. HW

25th Annual

After breeding season Once the breeding season is over, Walker stresses that the need for bull nutrition continues — especially for young bulls that are still growing. “Nutritional management postbreeding is influenced by both age of bulls and amount of weight loss during the course of the breeding season,” Walker says. She recommends producers evaluate each bull’s condition again and sort them into three groups: 1) Mature bulls in fairly good condition. These bulls can be managed on pasture or an all-roughage diet without supplements during the winter, says Walker. Hay quality should be 8-10% crude protein and fed at 2% of body weight. Rations should be modified in order to use available feed ingredients and to manage the bulls to maintain moderate body condition. 2) Growing young bulls and thin bulls that need extra care. Because young bulls are still growing, their ration should be formulated to ensure a gain of 1.5 to 2 lb. per day depending on the magnitude of weight loss during breeding. The need to supplement young bulls on summer/fall pasture will depend on the quality and quantity of forage available, says Walker. She adds that the best method for developing a diet for bulls is to test potential feeds and formulate a ration based on age, size and desired performance. As an example, in the winter, feeding roughage at 2% of body weight plus 3-6 lb. of grain so total diet protein content is 10-11% will often provide the targeted rate of gain in young bulls, according to Walker. 3) Salvage bulls to be marketed. With special management and the proper ration, salvage bulls can gain 3-5 lb./day over 60 days, www.hereford.org

This is a new feature for the Hereford World and designed especially for the tabloid issues, which many progressive commercial operations receive four times a year. The demand for Hereford bulls is growing and we are discovering many commercial operations are returning a white face to their cow herd for numerous beneficial reasons. This section in the tabloid is designed to assist in locating operations that have a good selection of Hereford bulls. Plans are to expand this new section in upcoming tabloid issues. Thank you to all who utilize the Bull Pen. — Joe Rickabaugh

4) Utilize selection tools

Things to Do Before Purchasing a Bull I by Brett Barham, University of Arkansas division of agriculture

know many producers spend many hours in the process of purchasing a bull. It’s a big decision — one that can affect your herd for many years beyond the expected usefulness of the bull due to his daughters remaining in production. It pays to do some homework on determining what kind of bull you need prior to purchase. Here are some steps to help guide you through the process:

1) Identify herd goals Herd goals serve as the foundation for sire selection and provide guidance as to traits with the most economic importance. Defining the production and marketing system, along with management strategies and environment, is the key factor that warrants consideration.

• Will the bull be used on

heifers, mature cows or both?

• Will replacement females be retained in the herd?

• How will the calf crop be

marketed (sell at weaning, retain ownership, sell females)?

• What are the labor and management resources available?

• What are the feed resources

and environmental conditions of the operation?

• How will this sire contribute

to the overall breeding system plan?

58

/ February 2011

2) Assess herd strengths and weaknesses

Fundamental records are key to identifying strengths and weaknesses. Basic performance parameters such as calving percentage and dates, weaning percentage, weaning weights, sale weights, carcass data, feed usage, etc., are necessary to serve as the basis for assessing areas of strength and those needing attention. This type of information is extremely important considering the high input costs and low operating margins of today’s markets.

3) Establish selection priorities Concentrate on those factors that stand to have the largest effect on profitability. Remember that income is derived from performance (sale weight, percent calf crop weaned, carcass merit, etc.). Performance is a function of both genetics and environment/ management. Superior genetics can be negated by poor management, which emphasizes the importance of separating the effect of management (nutrition, health program) from that of genetics when specific priorities for the herd are established. Considering both the genetic and management influences on various traits is important. Focus on a handful of priority traits rather than attempting to change many traits simultaneously. Establishing a few traits to focus on is the key factor.

Once selection priorities have been established through close examination of herd goals and current status, a number of useful tools are at the disposal of beef producers to assist in making genetic improvement. Genetic differences across breeds have been well established, and utilization of different breeds in a complementary fashion through structured crossbreeding plans provides the opportunity for improvement in multiple traits. Most importantly, heterosis attained through crossbreeding has been shown to have significant favorable impact on traits such as reproductive efficiency and cow longevity, which are critical for herd profitability. The limited ability to select for reproductive traits in the form of expected progeny differences (EPDs) further emphasizes the importance of capturing the value of heterosis. EPDs are available for many traits of economic importance. The introduction of economic indexes, which combine several related traits and their economic values into one EPD, are available to assist with simultaneous improvement in multiple traits which impact areas such as carcass merit and post-weaning profit. Again, with the large number of EPD tools available, the critical step is to determine the EPDs which are most important and to establish benchmarks relative to each.

5) Establish benchmarks Several tools can be used to help determine EPD specifications. EPD values for current and past sires can be used as benchmarks. With these benchmarks, EPD specifications can be set to reflect the desired increase or moderation in performance for a particular trait. As an example, establishing a benchmark for milk EPD can be determined through the relationship between previous sires’ genetics for milk and the performance of their daughters in the herd.

6) Find a source With the above defined, you can now begin to look at individual bulls. There are many sources for bulls that warrant consideration — production sales, test stations and private treaty sales. Of critical importance is that the bull be from a reputable source which will stand behind its product. It may be necessary to look at several sources in order to find the correct bull.

7) Do your homework The first step to doing so is to evaluate the sale catalog, performance pedigree and data. By examining the bull’s performance record, determine

which bulls meet the EPD and other specifications that have been established (and, likewise, eliminate those that do not meet the specifications). Be prepared to make tradeoffs, as the perfect record may not be attainable. Do not be surprised or alarmed when the bulls you have highlighted appear scattered throughout the sale order. Remember to stick to the selection criteria and qualifications/specifications that have been established. All this can and should be accomplished prior to departing for any sale.

8) Have a look Once the list has been narrowed to only bulls which meet the criteria, these bulls can be further evaluated and the selection refined. Having a list of suitable bulls prior to arrival at the auction or farm will not only save time but also assist in making sure the right bull for the situation is purchased. After narrowing the potential candidates on paper, the bulls can be evaluated for suitability of phenotypic traits and the potential candidate list can be shortened even further. Not all relevant traits have EPDs (examples include disposition, foot soundness, fleshing ability, etc.) and, therefore, must be evaluated visually.

9) Make a sound investment For many cow-calf producers, purchasing a new bull is a relatively infrequent occurrence. This emphasizes the importance of selecting the right bull, particularly in single-sire herds. The value of the right bull cannot be overestimated. Investments in good genetics will pay dividends, both short- and long-term, through the influence the bull has on each calf crop as well as his daughters if they are retained in the herd.

10) Manage the new bull properly Of equal importance is the care and management of the newly acquired bull. Proper management and nutrition are essential for the bull to perform satisfactorily during the breeding season. With most new herd sires purchased as yearling bulls, management prior to, during and after the first breeding season is particularly important. Plan ahead by acquiring a new yearling bull at least 60 to 90 days prior to the breeding season so ample time is available to allow for adjustment to a new environment, commingling with other bulls and getting the bull in proper breeding body condition.

Management Factors Affecting Fertility by Troy Smith

T

he cow-calf business is really all about reproduction. The goal of any serious cow-calf producer is to maximize the number of cows and heifers that become pregnant. So fertility is very important. During the Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) workshop, hosted in conjunction with the 2010 Cattle Industry Annual Convention, South Dakota State University reproductive physiologist George Perry talked about factors influencing fertility. He also offered a number of managerial considerations for maximizing pregnancy rates for breeding programs utilizing natural service or artificial insemination (AI). Perry advised producers to consider the “equation of reproduction,” which includes four factors: 1) the percentage of females detected in estrus (standing heat) and inseminated, 2) inseminator efficiency, 3) the fertility level of the breeding herd, and 4) the

fertility of the semen. According to Perry, overall reproductive performance of the breeding herd will never be better than the lowest level of performance in any one of these areas. With natural service, Perry said, detection of estrus ought to be easy. It’s the bull’s job. However, Perry reminded producers that libido, or the bull’s desire to mate, varies among bulls. And the factors evaluated during a breeding soundness evaluation are not related to libido. It can only be evaluated through close observation of a bull after introducing him to a cow herd and witnessing a demonstration of his desire to detect females in estrus. When using AI, the herd manager assumes the job of detecting estrus. It is accomplished through observation and with the various commercially available detection aids or “Gomer” bulls. But even when estrus detection aids are used, Perry recommends frequent visual observation to identify the greatest number of

Nutrition and reproduction “Fertility and reproductive traits are lowly heritable, so we need to manage for them,” said Rick Funston, University of Nebraska Extension reproductive physiologist. “You can do everything right with genetics in your program, but if you manage poorly, you can change all that potential very rapidly.” He shared a few tidbits for successful nutritional management of a cow herd:

• Body condition score (BCS) is important, but even more important is the female’s current weight trend. “I would much rather breed a thin cow on an increasing plane of nutrition than try to breed a fat cow on a declining plane of nutrition,” he said.

• When dietary protein falls below 7%, the cows can’t eat enough to meet their requirement, so you have to supplement. However, excessive protein, either degraded intake protein (DIP) or undegraded intake protein (UIP), can also be a problem if total energy is inadequate. Cattle need balanced protein and energy.

• A mineral supplement is best given 45 days before calving and

animals ready to be inseminated and the most appropriate time for insemination. “Timing makes a big difference,” Perry stated, “for inseminating too early or too late decreases the likelihood of achieving pregnancy.” When semen is placed in the right place at the right time, conception occurs about 95% of the time. With AI, inseminator efficiency is influenced by semen handling and technical skill. However, according to Perry, even AI professionals fail to deposit semen in the right place (within the uterine body) about 20% of the time. To enhance conception rates, Perry advised adherence to recommendations for thawing semen and care to maintain thermal protection of straws during transport to the cow. He warned against allowing straw-tostraw contact during thawing as some refreezing and rethawing of semen may occur and compromise semen quality. He recommended that insemination

• Try feeding dried distillers’ grains (DDGs). “I’m convinced there’s something in DDGs that has a positive effect on fertility,” Funston said. “I don’t yet know what that something may be, but I truly believe there’s something there we haven’t learned yet.”

• Feeding fat is not a cure-all. “If your repro rates are poor to begin with, you probably have a better chance of seeing a beneficial difference from feeding fat than if your repro rates were acceptable,” he explained. “However, that beneficial effect still probably would not be anything more significant than would be experienced by feeding any supplement to cows in poor condition. If you’re trying to decide if you should supplement fat, the bottom line should be its affordability and the current condition of your cows. If you have low repro rates and you can get fat cheap, go ahead and feed it. Otherwise you can probably skip it.” HW

be performed within 15 minutes after thawing semen. “Even bulls err when it comes to insemination efficiency,” Perry said, citing reasons that included low libido, low serving capacity, physical deformity and competition among multiple sires. “Fertility level of the herd may be the hardest factor to evaluate,” Perry stated. “Herd fertility includes cycling status, compliance with synchronization protocols, embryonic mortality, body condition (nutrition) and disease.” Stress, particularly heat or shipping stress, can be detrimental to survival of newly formed embryos. Perry explained that stress induces the release of hormones that cause detrimental changes to the uterine environment in which the new embryo is developing. The time when shipping stress is most hazardous to establishing successful pregnancy is between days 5 and 42 after insemination. Shipping during this time may cause up to 10% decrease in pregnancy rates. Stress as a result of nutritional management can interrupt cyclic activity among breeding heifers and may have a detrimental effect on embryonic mortality in heifers already bred. Perry said this is most apt to occur when heifers are developed in confinement and fed prepared rations, then sent to pasture where they must shift to a diet of grazed forages only. The final factor in the “reproduction equation” is fertility level of semen. This factor, Perry said, is managed by always buying quality semen for use in AI and always subjecting natural-service bulls to a semen test before turnout.

In Passing Jessie White, 85, Cody, Wyo., passed away Dec. 8. Jessie was a dedicated ranch wife. After she married Morton White in 1946, the couple ranched near Gunnison, Colo., until moving to the Diamond Tail Bar Ranch in Jelm, Wyo., in October 1948. They moved to the Bridger Valley in 1970, where they started White Herefords and lived there until 1990. They then moved White Herefords to the Piney Creek Ranch outside of Buffalo, Wyo. Morton passed away in November 1990, and the ranch operation was moved to the Natural Bridges Ranch in Douglas, Wyo., in 1995. The ranch was sold in 2000 when Jessie moved to Cody. She is survived by two daughters, Linda Armstrong and Loretta Anderson; one son, Butch White; 17

Grace Skrivanek, 94, Caldwell, Texas, passed away Nov. 13. She grew up in Texas and Alabama, graduating from high school in Houston. She graduated from Southwest Texas State Teachers College in San Marcos. She began her career as an elementary teacher in East Bernard and continued in Rosenberg, College Station and Bryan, where she retired after 32 years. She met her husband, Joseph Skrivanek Jr., when he was a high school band director. One of her greatest joys was seeing the children she taught realize their potential. She had a great love for music. She played the piano and occasionally helped out various churches and organizations. She was active in community affairs and organizations, one was the Czech Education Foundation of Texas. She was the first woman president of this statewide organization. Her hobbies included reading, traveling to Europe and enjoying country living. She was a member of the A&M United Methodist Church in College Station, the Eastern Star and Retired Teachers Association.

She is survived by her son, Joseph Skrivanek III; two granddaughters; and a great-grandson. Lyle Thomas Roberts Sr., Naperville, Ill., passed away Dec. 19. A native of Tecumseh, Neb., and the eldest Lyle Roberts of three children, Lyle grew up on the family farm outside of Tecumseh, which was originally homesteaded in 1873 by his paternal grandfather. Lyle and his late wife, Alice, were married in 1953 and moved from North Carolina to Tecumseh in 1955, where they lived until their health and age required them to move near their daughter in 2005. After graduating from Tecumseh High School in 1934, Lyle attended the University of Nebraska. In November 1941, Lyle joined the U.S. Navy and served in the Naval Air Transport Squadron VR-2 as a Navigator until March 1946. In August 1947 Lyle began working for the American Hereford Journal and was a field director for it until January 1954, when he began working for the American Hereford Association (AHA), covering the Southeastern U.S. It was during this time that his travel took him to WinstonSalem, N.C., where he met Alice. In April 1955 their first child was born, and shortly after, they moved back to Tecumseh, where they built

their life together, raising their family and registered Hereford cattle. Lyle remained employed with the AHA, and in 1962 the family moved to Kansas City, where Lyle worked as the director of field activities and later as Hereford Journal business manager. Lyle and Alice moved permanently to the family farm in Tecumseh in 1968, where Lyle was actively engaged in his own Hereford operation. Lyle loved Nebraska and Nebraska agriculture and remained committed to farming and raising cattle until his health no longer permitted him to continue. Lyle is survived by his children, Lyle Thomas Roberts Jr. and Lauren Bailey, and four grandchildren. Mary Ella Meek, 85, of Burke’s Garden, Va., died Saturday, Dec. 18 at her home. She was a member Mary Ella Meek of the Burke’s Garden Homemakers Club. Mary worked sideby-side with her husband, Marvin, her entire married life. For many years the couple lived in Arizona, where Marvin managed the 26 Ranch. Mary kept the books for the 26 cow herd and fed multitudes of people. She is survived by her husband of 68 years; three daughters, Bobbie Brecht, Doris Meek and Judy Eustis; six grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. HW

Trace Mineral Supplements

Enhance Calf Health and Cow Reproductive Performance by Heather Smith Thomas

R

eproductive performance in cattle, skeletal development in young animals, optimum health and strong immunity all depend on adequate nutrition, which includes important trace minerals. Some soils and plants, however, are short on various minerals, leaving feeds deficient. Ever since the 1950s, for instance, cow-calf producers have been aware of problems caused by selenium deficiencies — white muscle disease in young calves, retained placenta and infertility in cows, abortions, premature or weak newborn calves. In most geographic areas of the U.S., soils are deficient in selenium. Later, researchers found that copper deficiencies were also widespread, resulting in poor hair pigmentation, fragile bones, impaired reproductive performance, poor growth rates and reduced immunity. Copper supplementation has improved conception rates and immune responses to vaccinations. The most recent forage and cattle studies have indicated that zinc may be the most widely deficient trace mineral. Zinc is important in many body systems including production of certain enzymes (particularly for synthesis of DNA and proteins), carbohydrate metabolism, hoof structure and soundness, and male fertility (deficient animals have smaller testicles and reduced semen quality). Zinc-deficient calves may have swollen feet, scaly skin with open lesions, wounds that take longer to heal, loss of hair, excessive salivation, reduced appetite, reduced feed efficiency and growth rates, and impaired immune systems. Moderate deficiencies are not so readily recognized but take an economic toll through decreased growth rate and impaired immunity and fertility. Calves born to zinc-deficient dams have lower levels of immunity even when fed adequate amounts of zinc. Manganese, another important trace mineral, is important for proper bone and cartilage formation — which directly affects bone growth in young animals. It is also crucial for optimum fertility in cows. Signs of deficiency in calves include skeletal deformities, swollen joints and stiffness. During the past two decades, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) studies of blood levels for trace minerals in cattle herds around the country found numerous animals deficient in these four important minerals. Many livestock producers use supplemental minerals to augment cattle diets. These minerals are often supplied in salt/mineral mixes, provided free choice. Consumption is varied, however, with some animals consuming too much while others eat inadequate

amounts or none at all. Also, other aspects of diet (including certain minerals that may negatively interact with the supplement during digestion) may hinder absorption by the body. Because of this variability, some stockmen resort to individually dosing their animals by drench, bolus or injection to make sure the cattle directly receive the necessary minerals. In recent years, the value of injected trace minerals has been recognized as a reliable way to ensure that cattle receive them. Lourens Havenga, Multimin USA Inc. chief executive officer, says the USDA conducted three surveys during the 1990s on selenium, copper and zinc blood levels in cattle. “When they did their most recent survey, they found there was actually a higher number of individual animals and herds deficient in zinc than either copper or selenium,” Havenga says. “When we created our injectable mineral product for the U.S., we based it on the 2001 NRC (National Research Council) requirements and actual absorption of minerals, recognizing proper ratios of copper, zinc, manganese and selenium.” Havenga points to several university studies that have shown the benefits of injected trace mineral products that looked at how rapidly the minerals are absorbed and how long they are stored in the liver. Other studies have evaluated the effects on calf health and reproductive performance when cows were injected before and after calving.

Researching response “After launching our new product, I had a lot of questions from veterinarians and producers, asking how it actually works. For instance, after injection how quickly is it absorbed, how quickly does it go

into the liver, how quickly do we see the different enzymes (that rely on these minerals) start showing response. So I contacted researchers at Iowa State University to do some studies,” Havenga says. “I met with Stephanie Hansen, who has done a lot of trace mineral research, and she agreed to do the research on these questions. So we sponsored this research at Iowa State, and she provided us with an elaborate and detailed trial report and presented her research findings at the animal science meeting in Denver in mid-July 2010.” Hansen found that the injected product is absorbed rapidly. “Once you’ve injected the animal, mineral levels in the bloodstream increase and reach a peak within eight to 10 hours. Most of the mineral that the animal doesn’t utilize is stored in the liver, while some is excreted by the kidneys. The high blood level is maintained for about 24 hours and then drops. Then the body stores the excess in the liver or gets rid of it in the urine or feces,” says Havenga. “We only ran this study for 15 days and found that the storage levels were high for the full 15 days. We later had other studies done at Texas A&M that showed the product actually lasts (stored in the liver) for about two to three months, depending on mineral status prior to injection,” he says. The third part of the research project at Iowa State looked at enzyme responses. “It (enzyme response) starts immediately,” Havenga says, “but by 14 days after injection significant changes were confirmed. This is why we recommend that producers use this product a little bit in advance of stresses, calving or breeding, especially for enhancing reproductive performance. It’s best if you can inject cows about a month before they’d be breeding or about a month before calving (at a minimum) for optimum benefit. You can use it earlier than that, such as at preg checking, but shouldn’t use it much closer to these events because cattle might not get full benefit.”

Other studies A Texas A&M study in beef cattle came up with additional data regarding differences in cattle performance when injected with trace minerals. An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of providing pre-calving and pre-breeding injections of Multimin and vitamin E on reproductive performance of beef cows and on health and survival of their calves. In this study, 67 crossbred cows were randomly assigned to control or Multimin/vitamin E

treatments. Treated cows were given injections 30 days prior to the start of calving and again 21 days prior to start of breeding. The trace mineral injections effectively improved copper levels (liver) and selenium (blood levels), compared to the non-treated cows. The treated cows had significantly higher liver concentrations of copper than the controls, remaining higher for 161 days after the last injection. Previous research had shown that cattle have improved performance and/or immune function with trace mineral supplementation when they are marginal to deficient in copper, zinc and selenium, but differences may not be seen when cattle have adequate levels to begin with. In the Texas study, more cows became pregnant in the treated group; cows in the control group were 2.4 times more likely to be open. “Researchers injected the product before the cows calved and again before they bred the cows. This showed that if you use the product strategically, these two injections can keep liver levels elevated in the cow for almost a full year (one production cycle). We stopped that trial at 256 days just before the cows started calving again the next season,” says Havenga. “The producer benefit in the Texas A&M study was that we increased calving percentage, and those cows also calved earlier. The Multimintreated cows bred back quicker and calved six days earlier, on average than the untreated cows. This gives us a better understanding about how this product works,” he says. Making sure cows have adequate levels of trace minerals during pregnancy also ensures normal bone formation and immune system development in the growing fetus and also enables the fetus to have adequate stores of these important minerals in its liver. Deficiencies in the calf cannot be made up through supplementing the dam after calving since these minerals do not transfer very well through the milk. Some stockmen cover their bases by giving young calves injections during the first days or weeks of life or at branding time. Ideally, you need to make sure the calf has peak levels (and is not deficient) at the time of vaccinations, in order to be able to mount strong immunities. Unless a calf has adequate trace mineral status, vaccination may not be able to protect him against disease. HW

Prepare For Calving Season Now F

or spring-calving herds, calving season will be in full swing in four to six weeks. If you haven’t done so already, now is a good time to prepare for the increased workload by checking calving equipment and facilities. Take the time to do a walk-through and inspection of your calving facilities prior to calving.

• Are the calving pens and working

equipment ready for the demands of calving season?

• Do you have adequate bedding

• Have you inventoried remaining

the mature cows? Heifers and mature cows have increased nutrient requirements compared to your mature cow herd.

• Have the cows received adequate

It is important to prepare now for the upcoming calving season. Don’t wait for the first early calf to hit the ground! By then, it’s too late! HW

feedstuffs? Do you have enough high-quality feed to get you through calving season?

levels of fat soluble vitamins, especially vitamin A? If they’ve been fed low-quality roughage through the winter, providing supplemental vitamin A prior to calving may be warranted.

Editor’s Note: Reprinted by permission of Tri-State Livestock News

• Are the heifers and young cows

being managed separately from

supplies ready to protect mothers and newborn calves from cold temperatures and snow? Hypothermia can be deadly for newborn calves. Keep a supply of bedding on hand in order to provide a more hospitable environment in the event of a storm or cold temperatures.

• Have you examined all the

calving equipment such as calf pullers, obstetric chains, head catches, and calving pens to be sure they are in good condition? Do routine maintenance and make necessary repairs now before you need the equipment.

• Invariably, cows and calves

will require treatment for some sort of sickness or injury during this time. It is best to be prepared ahead of time.

• Do you have a supply of

replacement colostrum available for situations when the cow may not produce enough? Ideally, a supply of supplemental colostrum from cows in your own herd would be used when you need to provide additional colostrum for your newborns. Store supplemental colostrum in Ziploc® freezer bags, Serving Savers®, or 16-oz. plastic soda or water bottles. These storage devices will make storing, thawing and feeding supplemental colostrum easier.

• Do you have pharmaceutical and

veterinary supplies needed for the upcoming calving season? Suture, needles, syringes and other supplies can be difficult to find at 2 a.m. Be sure you have these supplies organized and stored in such a way that they are easy to get to when you need them.

• Cow nutrition plays a big role in

calf health. If calving is still a few weeks or more away, it is time to do a serious evaluation of your nutrition program.

• Are the cows in good body

condition or are they thin? If they are thin, separate them from the rest of the herd to more cost effectively boost the energy level in their diet.
