Promising Profit The demand for its Hereford feeder cattle and its cow herd’s good disposition have been the foundation of Sandrock Ranch’s success. by Julie Mais

H

ereford roots run deep for commercial cattleman and Hereford breeder Kevin Bennett of Sandrock Ranch, Benton, Wis. For more than 70 years, his family has raised Herefords in southwest Wisconsin, where the Fever River winds through the gently rolling hills. The Bennetts run a commercial herd of 300 purebred Herefords along with 130 registered Hereford cows and 30 black-hided commercial females.

While his family has farmed in Benton for more than 125 years, it was Kevin’s grandmother who purchased registered Herefords in the late 1940s and got the Bennetts in the Hereford breed. “We’ve been in the Hereford business a long time,” he says. “My grandmother wanted purebred Herefords for her commercial herd 70 years ago, and our family has been with this breed ever since.” continued on page 24...

Breed Focus by Jack Ward

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

If you would like to market cattle through the Hereford Advantage program, your current bull battery needs to average 28 for Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$). For more information on the new genetic evaluation, please visit the AHA website at Hereford.org.

Selecting Predictability Genomically-enhanced EPDs gives cattlemen more predictability in selecting Hereford genetics. The American Hereford Association (AHA) recently implemented a new single-step genetic analysis utilizing BOLT (biometric open language tools) software that incorporates genomics, pedigree and phenotypes directly into the calculations. The biggest difference in this type of single-step method compared to others is that it only uses the most informative markers in the evaluation. In addition to the new evaluation, the AHA has developed two new traits of economic relevance, Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) and Dry Matter intake (DMI). These two new traits are vital to profitability for producers as SCF is a true measure of fertility, which is seven to 10 times more important than any of the growth traits, and DMI allows producers to begin to look at the input side, or costs of production. The evaluation is now fully automated utilizing a gaming computer, which is more robust than a traditional computer. This system allows efficiency, and expected progeny differences (EPDs) are now released each Monday with all information included.

Making reliable decisions As you sort bulls in catalogs this spring, please keep this tool in mind as we no longer produce interim EPDs. Most

breeders should provide an updated sheet for reference with the current set of EPDs on sale animals. Many of the animals that you will be considering this spring will be backed with a set of genomically-enhanced EPDs (GE-EPDs), and this information will allow you to select animals with a more reliable set of EPDs. This data can be especially useful when selecting animals produced through embryo transfer (ET). When a set of ET calves has been genotyped, there can be a fairly significant difference in those calf EPD values, even full siblings. Many commercial cattlemen have been interested in selecting full or three-quarter brothers to provide some consistency in a calf crop. A set of full sibs can be significantly different in their genetic makeup. This difference can be resolved by selecting a set of animals that come with GE-EPDs. When you combine this more reliable data with disposition, feet and leg structure, pigment, and other traits of interest, you will be able to select a predictable set of bulls. One question asked periodically is, “How much effect does a genotype have on an animal?” To the right is a table showing the average increase in accuracy when buying a young animal

with a GE-EPD versus an animal without. Similarly, an effective progeny number increase is listed by trait that shows how many progeny equate to a genomic enhancement of a nonparent animal (see Table 1). The proof gained on a nonparent animal through a GE-EPD would be like adding two to 17 progeny to a pedigree without any additional information. This genomic enhancement makes your buying decisions much more reliable for the traits of interest. Table 1: Average increase in accuracy when buying a young animal with a GE-EPD.

Performance Matters

NRSP Data Release from Olsen Ranch

by Shane Bedwell

The 2016-born calves at Olsen Ranch show strong carcass results. Below are the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) results from 2016-born calves at Olsen Ranch in Harrisburg, Neb. Because of the American Hereford Association’s (AHA) partnerships with various test herds like Olsen’s, breeders can make better-informed decisions relative to traits of interest. Ultimately the Association’s goal is to identify young sires that can positively affect the marketplace and give seedstock and commercial breeders alike proof that Hereford genetics are profitable. Likewise, proven sires are evaluated in this test to further validate their values and to give the young sires comparison with the Hereford population.

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

2016 Olsen Ranch results Printed in Table 3 are the expected progeny differences (EPDs) for sires used, along with the phenotypes of progeny evaluated in the test. Listed in Table 1 are intake and gain data for the test cattle, along with calculated feed conversion results.

EFBEEF BR VALIDATED B413

The adjusted feed-to-gain (F:G) ratio takes into account body weight. The EPD profiles of the sires used reflect the phenotypes of progeny from the Olsen test and are from the Pan-America Cattle Evaluation (PACE) released on Jan. 15. In summary, in Table 2, of the 218 evaluated on test, 95% of the cattle graded Choice or better and had an average yield grade of 3.4. Even more impressive, 58% of the cattle graded in the upper two-thirds of Choice. On average, during the test period (74 days), the cattle consumed 20.1 lb. per day on a dry matter basis, gained 5.1 lb. per day and converted at 4:1. It should be mentioned that at the start of the test period, weather conditions were extremely hot and dry which explain the suppressed intake of the steers. It’s also important to note these steers are backgrounded for approximately seven months on a forage diet and are not fed any concentrates before being placed on feed. These two reasons help highlight the exceptional conversion during the test period. Regardless, all steers were handled the same, and the differences between sires are the important data to study. All in all, there are some great bulls in this lineup that can move the breed forward — checking a lot of boxes when it comes to being profitable in the industry. I would encourage any commercial cattleman to contact the breeders of these sires about getting semen on bulls meeting his or her criteria. For breeders interested in participating in the NRSP, please refer to the nomination form or visit Hereford.org/NRSP. Nominations are due March 1.

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

by Laura Loschke

Upcoming Whole Herd TPR spring inventory deadline The Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) 2018 spring herd inventories are due March 1. All spring 2018 herd inventories received after the deadline will incur an additional $2-perhead surcharge on every female maintained on the inventory.

Whole Herd TPR inventory tips:

• Replacement heifers won’t appear

on the inventory until they have reached at least 18 months of age. Heifers should only be enrolled on the inventory if they are bred to calve in the season described.

• A female can only be marked

as “Non-Exposed” if this should be her first year to calve (heifer). Once a cow has had a calf, she can no longer be marked as “Non-

Exposed” in the future. She will need to be marked as “Open, Missed Out” if she wasn’t bred.

• If a cow is sold and her registration

papers are transferred to the new owner, she will remain on the herd inventory until she is removed using the disposal code “T-sold with papers.”

• Multi-owned cows should be kept on the inventory if an owner intends to register calves out of them. If you are not the owner who will be

registering their offspring, mark them as “Multi-owned, no calf.”

• Only mark a cow as “Next Season”

if she truly needs to be moved to the next season. In this case it would move her to the fall 2018 inventory. If she just missed out, be sure to mark her as “Open, Missed Out.”

DNA reminders

• Remember, with the new BOLT

evaluation, producers will no longer receive the genomically enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs) of animals on their DNA result statement. EPDs are updated and released every Monday by the American Hereford Association (AHA) and can be found on Hereford.org or through the breeder’s MyHerd page.

• Please always remember to plan ahead

when it comes to DNA testing animals — DNA work takes time. The typical turnaround time for DNA is between three to four weeks from the time the sample is received at the DNA lab. The lab does not do “rush” orders, nor can things be expedited at the lab. Please plan accordingly and think ahead.

• Acceptable forms of DNA are hair

(pulled from tail switch with follicles still intact), semen, blood card or Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU). Remember, when using TSUs, a $4 credit will be added to your account when the AHA receives the animal’s DNA results. For more information on the TSUs or to order, please visit Hereford.org or contact customer service at 816-842-3757.

• Don’t forget all steers being shown at the Junior National Hereford Expo must have a DNA profile on file with the AHA at the time of entry. Now’s the time to start testing.

CHB Bites

Certified Hereford Beef News

by Kaylen Alexander

“CHB Bites” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program. To get involved with CHB on social media, search Certified Hereford Beef on Facebook and Pinterest, @certifiedherefordbeef on Instagram and @crtherefordbeef on Twitter. The CHB program was presented to a large group of chefs and industry professionals in Vitacura, Santiago, Chile.

Certified Hereford Beef presented in Chile Together with the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) and BuenaCarne, a Chilean processing facility and Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) partner, the CHB program was presented to a large group of chefs and industry professionals in Vitacura, Santiago, Chile. “We wanted to do this activity because chefs always want to learn about the different cuts to vary their menus,” says Juan Chau, owner of BuenaCarne. “There are other cuts they can use to vary their menus and not focus on the most typical cuts. “Certified Hereford Beef allows us to tell our customers that in addition to the taste and tenderness of the product, they will have the same results throughout the year,” Chau explains. “Consistency is one of the greatest advantages of Certified Hereford Beef.” Liz Wunderlich, USMEF, led the chef activity and explained the benefits of the CHB program. “The feeding of the animal is important because the meat is like a sponge,” Wunderlich says. “It absorbs the flavor of the other elements. In general terms, Certified Hereford Beef has three main characteristics that differentiate its quality: tenderness, flavor and juiciness.” Lance McFarland, executive chef at the Marina Grog and Galley, Kansas City, Mo., attended the seminar as a representative of CHB. McFarland performed live beef-cutting demonstrations where he deconstructed whole-primals to educate the chefs on how to merchandise each cut. “Chile is a beautiful place with many skilled chefs,” McFarland says. “Certified Hereford Beef is putting the right product in the hands of a talented group of chefs.” Iris Mayaudon, owner of Agri-Food and Feed and CHB export broker, says she has high expectations for the CHB program in the Chile market. “We had a very successful visit,” Mayaudon says. “We were able to introduce the program and educate more than 100 chefs on the benefits of the Certified Hereford Beef brand. I strongly believe the program will be able to grow because there are not many beef programs in Chile with the same quality as CHB. The demand for beef has grown in Chile, and this presents a great opportunity for CHB.” Kaylen Alexander is the director of marketing and communications for Certified Hereford Beef.

Beef Talk by Kris Ringwall

Will the Hay Inventory Feed the Cows? Provide the proper supplementation to meet the current needs of the cow herd or reduce inventory.

Cow herd inventory is a working asset for beef producers, and maintaining that inventory is an important component of a successful beef operation. The challenge is keeping feed resources current to provide the daily feed needs. At the Dickinson Research Extension Center (DREC), 229 calves are anticipated to consume 378 tons of forage before spring grass. At 1,300 lb. per bale, 582 bales of forage will be fed before turnout on May 1. The question is “How much hay should the calves

get before the call is made to sell some calves to spare forage for the cow herd?”

The numbers The calves receive 4 lb. daily of a commercial supplement to balance the forage-based ration and to make for better utilization of the forage. That saves 82 tons of hay for the cow herd. The center summered 262 cows with an average fall weight of 1,369 lb. or a total cow weight of 358,746 lb. The average condition score was 6.3.

The drought cut into feed supplies, so the center sold 117 older cows totaling an average weight of 1,482 lb. That meant 145 younger cows were kept that averaged 1,278 lb. The three-yearold cows averaged 1,341 lb., while the two-year-old cows average 1,202 lb. That extra year of life for the three-year-old cow added 139 lb. to her body weight, or in terms of feed, almost half a big round hay bale per cow for a typical winter. From that perspective, selling older cows removes more weight than

selling the younger cows. The average weight for the older cows was more, thus selling older cows removed more total weight, which translates into feed savings. Of the 117 cows sold, 75 were traditional-bred cows averaging 1,580 lb., while the 42 Aberdeeninfluenced cows averaged 1,308 lb. The 272-lb. body weight difference is interesting because the difference between the standard-size and Aberdeen-influenced cows is almost an additional large round bale per cow for a typical winter. The current center cow inventory is 83 standard beef cows and 62 Aberdeen-influenced cows. The anticipated forage need is 2 to 2.5% of 185,316 lb. of cumulative body weight per day, or about 4,633 lb. of forage daily.

Looking ahead With the nice weather the area has received, the cows are grazing crop aftermath, with 4 lb. of 22% protein supplement cake fed every other day. If feeding begins at the beginning of the year for 120 days, the center needs 555,948 lb. of forage — 428 of the 1,300-lb. round bales. An additional 582 bales are needed for the calves, totaling 1,010 bales to overwinter. Based on the calves’ daily supplement, their bale consumption is offset by 126 bales. The cows’ bale consumption is offset by the cake supplement by 27 bales. Either way, no carryover of hay will happen. More than likely, some hay will need to be purchased. Every day the cows stay on crop aftermath, the center benefits. Keep in mind nice weather is always appreciated but can create illusions that things are fine. Using crop aftermath and late-season dry forage can cut production costs; however, that can have consequences. Cows need to receive a balanced ration to halt poor performance or loss of condition. The cows will enjoy the nice winter grazing. However, if the many extenuating circumstances affecting the cows’ nutrition are not accounted for, the cows will not enjoy calving. Cows must maintain condition prior to calving, and those that lack condition need to add it and grow the developing calf. Do not skimp, skimp and skimp in hopes of saving a few dollars. Rather, provide the proper supplementation to meet the current needs of the cow herd or reduce inventory. Kris Ringwall is a beef specialist at North Dakota State University Extension Service.

Beef Talk by Kris Ringwall

Keeping More Heifers Turned Out Well Keeping more heifers during a drought can help preserve a herd’s genetics and increase management flexibility.

How is it possible to cut cow numbers in half and maintain the same number of cows calving? That seems like a strange question, but the question surfaced as the Dickinson Research Extension Center (DREC) prepped for the current drought on this year’s feed supply. The answer is to develop all the heifers as future brood cows. The answer may seem as strange as the question, but keep in mind one of the center’s focus is to maintain calves

longer in their life cycle, utilizing lower inputs and more forage. The bottom line: more pounds of beef.

The study Fortunately, the center has 86 pregnant heifers from last year’s calf crop, so the current bred female inventory is 229. This is not a traditional approach, but one factor stood out: The younger cows are lighter and require less feed, and bred heifers have more flexibility to seek outside locations to feed.

The bred heifers were transferred from the North Dakota State University (NDSU) Beef Cattle Research Complex in Fargo, N.D., where they were developed and bred, to the Central Grasslands Research Extension Center near Streeter, N.D., for winter feeding. The DREC took advantage of the feed resources in eastern North Dakota and saved hay-shipping costs. Interestingly, cow numbers can vary tremendously within a given time period for a given cattle operation. Depending

on inventory makeup, the reduction in cow numbers will have varying impacts on the cow age distribution. In the center’s favor was the large inventory of younger, lighter cows. That was a good thing this year. Heifer retention at the center means keeping all the heifers. The requirements: The heifer had to be alive with no obvious health issues, no heifers born twin to a bull, no obvious structural issues and at least 500 lb. at 1 year of age. During the past three years following a low-input winter backgrounding period, no heifers had health, structural or weight issues, and only an occasional freemartin was put with the steer calves. Essentially, if a heifer was weaned, she was sent to the NDSU Heifer Development Center in Fargo. The DREC has sent 303 heifers to the NDSU Heifer Development Center in the past three years. Heifers not adjusting to a confined feeding system were sold as yearlings because the lack of adjustment capacity was assumed to be an indication of adaptation issues. The remaining heifers were developed and bred with the expectation they would return to the DREC. To date, 229 developed females, or just less than 76%, are pregnant. Of the initial set of 100 heifers born in 2014, 77 coming 4-year-old cows, or 77%, remain. Of the second set of 93 heifers born in 2015, 66 coming 3-year-old cows, or 71%, remain. Of this year’s 110 heifers born in 2016, 86 coming 2-yearold heifers, or 78%, remain. The point today is simple: If a producer keeps all the heifers and exposes them to a bull, approximately 20% may not become established as a mature cow in the breeding herd. In this particular study, a cow needs to be open two consecutive years to be culled.

Hidden opportunity Producers may have a hidden opportunity to consider keeping more heifers and exposing them to a bull. During droughts, preserving a herd’s genetics can be accomplished by keeping more heifers, which also increases flexibility within managerial options. Essentially, finding a location to park bred heifers for the winter months is easier than trying to purchase and transport hay. In preparation for future droughts, producers should start thinking of how to aggressively maintain more heifers and let Mother Nature select out the less adapted heifers. The bottom line is to explore more options on keeping a higher percentage of the annual calf crop as yearlings and taking advantage of the yearlings’ ability to grow. Heifers may be a good option, and keeping a younger cow herd allows a producer to manage the mature weight of the cow herd.

...Promising Profit continued from the cover

The Bennetts AIed 40 commercial heifers and 140 commercial cows last summer and are anticipating calving season to begin mid-February for the National Reference Sire Program.

He remembers, as a young teenager in the late 1960s, attending a beef symposium at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arlington Agricultural Research Station and hearing about the direction of the beef industry. “They were saying, ‘fellas, we’re going away from our little British breed cattle,’ and that’s when the whole beef industry changed,” he says. Kevin’s family stayed with the Hereford breed, and he witnessed the herd grow from 125 cows to the 460 they run today.

The ranch A self-proclaimed, “die-hard Hereford man,” Kevin says it’s the Hereford breed’s disposition that has allowed his family to grow their program and enjoy continued success. Kevin and his daughter, Stacy, manage Sandrock Ranch’s herd and row-crop and hay ground. Sandrock Ranch’s herd consists of Line 1-influenced cows. Kevin purchases horned Hereford bulls for the breeding program and artificially inseminates (AI) approximately 80 head of heifers each year. “We’ve been selling a few bulls private treaty, so we buy some polled genetics to satisfy that customer base in our area,” he says. The Bennetts have 11 pastures for their more than 400 head of cows. The three largest pastures can handle 60 pairs, and the remainder hold approximately 25 pairs each. “Our pastures really work well with the number of bulls we have and the amount of cows a bull can handle,” he says. “This is a little more labor intensive, but that’s raising cattle in Wisconsin.” Heifers are calved out in mid-February, and the cows begin calving in early March. Calving season at Sandrock Ranch is wrapped up by mid-May.

Herefords at Sandrock Ranch are marketed based upon their end carcass merit.

The operation focuses on carcass quality — calves are weaned in groups of 70 every two weeks starting around Labor Day and are sent to their feedlot to be finished. Fat cattle are then marketed and shipped the following summer. Kevin says they retain heifers for replacements and sell some females, as well. “There’s a market for commercial Hereford heifers,” he says. “We’re getting people calling us wanting some nice straight Hereford commercial heifers. A lot of those producers have majority black cattle, and they want to buy some Herefords.” Kevin’s customers are interested in Hereford’s good disposition and breeding the black baldie cow. “We have people wanting to buy bred Hereford heifers, and we have no trouble getting rid of black baldie females,” he adds. “They make tremendous cows — they milk good and have a great disposition.”

Carcass-focused With the end product in mind, Kevin utilizes expected progeny differences (EPDs) for selecting their 20-22 herd bulls for the ranch. “I focus on the marbling EPD,” he says, “The bull obviously has to be functional and look the part, but I’m a numbers guy and the numbers have to be there.” And, he adds, what he pays for a bull reflects on the animal’s EPD profile. After the calves are fed out, Kevin sells groups to Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc. for a program in which carcasses enter the European market. “Our cattle have been grading very well,” he says. “When we first got into the program, the lead buyer told me he typically doesn’t buy Hereford cattle because they don’t grade, but ours work for them.” Kevin’s focus on carcass traits has paid off — a couple of their semitrailer loads of cattle in the past few years have graded 100% Choice, with the average being 85-95% Choice. “Our Herefords have good marbling and perform well on the carcass end,” he says.

NRSP test herd In 2017, Sandrock Ranch became a National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) test herd. Focusing on carcass traits, Kevin and Stacy selected bulls from the NRSP program. “We, in the Hereford breed, need to continue to focus on getting our cattle to grade,” he says. “With better genetics, we can get cattle well-above breed average in marbling.” The Bennetts AIed 40 commercial heifers and 140 commercial cows last summer and are anticipating calving season to begin mid-February. “I believe in taking what you have and making it better,” Kevin says. “We’ve been steadfast in improving and growing our herd by buying better bulls, and Hereford’s disposition has allowed us to stay with the breed. Herefords have been good to us.” Kevin Bennett and his daughter Stacy own and operate Sandrock Hereford Ranch.

Hereford Genetic Evaluation Hereford’s genetic evaluation takes quantum leap forward — EPD accuracies calculated. by Bob Hough

T

he American Hereford Association (AHA) recently implemented a completely new, ground-breaking genetic analysis. Hereford now has the most sophisticated and up-to-date genetic analysis in the industry. The analysis includes the use of the Single Step model for incorporation of genomics into expected progeny differences (EPDs), calculation — not estimation — of EPD accuracies, and increased frequency of evaluations. The data input was also changed to decrease bias and improve the precision of the genetic predictions. In addition,

32

| February 2018

two new, economically-relevant trait EPDs were added, and the indexes were updated. Foundational to the calculation of precise genetic predictions is the input of unbiased performance data. Therefore, AHA’s genetic analysis no longer uses any performance data submitted prior to 2001 when Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR) were implemented. This removes a tremendous amount of selectively reported historic phenotypic data from the analysis. This culled data had a significant amount of reporting bias, which introduced an

unacceptable amount of bias into the genetic predictions. Reporting bias and genetic prediction precision is demonstrated when an EPD is calculated from equal-size contemporary groups; one containing biased data and the other unbiased data. Because the same amount of information is utilized to calculate the EPD from each contemporary group, the EPDs will have the same accuracy. However, the EPD from the unbiased data will be significantly closer to the true genetic value, making it more precise. This is a major paradigm shift. Until now, breed associations and genetic analysis companies have measured the quality of their genetic analyses based on the size of their database. However, Hereford has demonstrated that data quality far outweighs data quantity. The AHA has its genetic predictions calculated at ABRI (Agriculture Business Research Institute) in Australia. They traditionally ran a model where all EPDs were calculated simultaneously in a “correlated” trait model. This way of calculating EPDs made incorporating genomics directly into the model virtually impossible. To get around this problem in the past, they used a multi-step method in which the genomics were added post analysis in the form of a molecular breeding value (MBV) for each trait. This

had severe limitations. It did not make full use of the information contained in the genomics, and the resulting information from the MBVs did not flow up and down the pedigree. Rather, it only affected the individuals genomically profiled. To solve these problems, ABRI switched to a single-step analysis. This process of analysis uses allnew “BOLT” — biometric open language tools — software that incorporates all the genomic markers directly into the calculations. The BOLT software was developed by Bruce Golden, Ph.D., Dorrian Garrick, Ph.D., and their company, Theta Solutions. However, including up to 50,000 markers per animal in the analysis exponentially increases the size of the mathematical problem to calculate the genetic predictions. To accomplish the Single Step model, ABRI has combined BOLT with new, state-of-the-art hardware capable of doing calculations that people only thought possible on small datasets. Theta Solutions has its customers utilize Graphic Processing Units (GPU) hardware originally designed for the gaming industry. They are a quantum leap forward in computing power compared to traditional computers, and they are relatively inexpensive. Multiple GPUs are stacked and then run at high voltage and water cooled. An example of the power of these GPUs Hereford.org


combined with BOLT software is their ability to solve traditional EPD calculations in 24 minutes. Normally these calculations take 24 hours. The key is very advanced and innovative programming that lets multiple GPUs solve a problem simultaneously. The BOLT software incorporates all the markers from each animal directly into the model, similar to how performance data is added like a birth weight. A major difference between the BOLT Single Step model and the model adopted by other companies producing Single Step EPDs is that BOLT weighs markers as to their influence on a trait and discards markers that are not informative. This is done with each iteration of the math that calculates an EPD, which is computationally intensive. Ultimately, the Single Step model of incorporating genomics significantly improves the accuracy of genetic predictions. BOLT’s method of weighing markers further improves accuracy compared to other single-step methodologies. EPD accuracies have always been estimates of actual accuracy using a BIF (Beef Improvement Federation) method. They were estimated because actually calculating them was too large of a computational problem for existing software and hardware. For the first time among the beef breeds in the North America, Hereford’s accuracies will be calculated instead of estimated using the BOLT software and GPU hardware. Hereford found the BIF estimated accuracies tended to overstate the accuracy of genetic predictions, especially for young animals. Producers will notice right away the calculated accuracies are more conservative than previous ones, but the possible change chart for each accuracy will be far more precise and reliable.

index. As a result, adding the new genetic prediction into their Baldie and Brahman maternal indexes will have a significant impact on them. Dry matter intake will also impact these two indexes, and it will be a major profit driver in the Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$). This amount of change generally causes major heartburn for producers, but the updated indexes are a significant improvement over the previous ones. Also new to AHA’s genetic analysis is it will be run weekly instead of 10 times a year, as was done previously. A great amount of time and effort was put into this to automate the process. Under the new system, the database will automatically download to ABRI weekly, which will trigger a new genetic analysis to be run. The data will then

automatically be uploaded to AHA for review and weekly release. The nice thing is, if any problems are found, they can be solved with the next week’s run. Before, it took a month for problems to be corrected. With these changes, Hereford now joins Angus, Beefmaster, Brangus, Charolais, and Santa Gertrudis running a Single Step model for the incorporation of genomics into its genetic predictions. With the new BOLT software, Hereford genetic predictions should lead the industry in terms of accuracy. Other improvements Hereford has made to its analysis include: data pruning to remove bias; calculation of actual EPD accuracies; more frequent genetic analysis; calculation of genetic predictions for two new

economically-relevant traits; and updated indexes. All this adds up to a significant amount of change for Hereford breeders and the commercial customers who use Hereford genetics. In general, people dislike change no matter how positive it will be in the long run, and these changes will take some getting used to. Ultimately, Hereford stakeholders will have the most precise and reliable genetic predictions upon which to make objective decisions. This can only help the breed in the years to come and will help assure Hereford genetics are having a positive impact on the beef industry. Editor’s Note: Bob Hough, Ph.D., is the retired executive vice president of the Red Angus Association of America and a freelance writer. This article was first published in the Western Livestock Journal on Dec. 22, 2017.

New economically relevant traits AHA has also added genetic predictions for two new, economicallyrelevant traits; Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) and Dry Matter Intake (DMI). The SCF EPD is the probability that once a cow enters the herd at 2 years old, she will remain producing in the herd up to 12 years of age. Since it is a probability genetic prediction, a higher EPD value is more desirable. With DMI, lower intake is desirable, so a lower EPD value is favorable. In addition, AHA’s indexes have been retooled with their basic assumptions reviewed and the two new, economically-relevant traits added. The expertise for these updates was provided by Mike MacNeil, Ph.D. of Delta G, Matt Spangler, Ph.D. of the University of Nebraska, and Larry Kuehn, Ph.D. of U.S. Department of Agriculture Meat Animal Research Center. Due to the changes in the Hereford genetic analysis, the addition of two new EPDs, and an update of the index assumptions, producers will notice some animals’ indexes will have changed significantly. Most of this change will be because of the incorporation of SCF and DMI into the indexes. Stayability, or SCF, is the biggest single profit driver in a maternal Hereford.org

Herd Health

I

t is always beneficial for producers to have a good working relationship with their veterinarian, who can assist with herd health management strategies and preventative medicine rather than only emergencies. A veterinarian can answer questions to help prevent problems, yet many cattlemen still tend to have a narrow perspective of what their veterinarian can offer.

Problem solving is key

Building a

Herd Health Plan

Working with a veterinarian on herd health strategies can pay off big for producers. by Heather Smith Thomas

38

| February 2018

Dean Lusk, a veterinarian in Jerome, Idaho, who has an extensive cattle practice, says consultations often save a producer time and money by improving herd health. “In our practice we have seen many different problems and have helped producers resolve them,” he explains. “A few years ago, one client’s herd had calves with rickets. The cattle were on desert range in Nevada and that year it was extremely dry; the cattle were on dry grass all summer. The calves that came off that range and went into a feedlot were lighter than normal, and when they hit that good feed and started gaining weight swiftly, they started breaking bones.” Lusk was tasked with a pen of calves that had 20 broken femurs. The rancher was at a loss when determining what the problem could be. In the end Lusk says they had a vitamin D deficiency. Every time his client worked those calves they would have fractures because their bones were so fragile. Without enough vitamin D the calcium and phosphorus were not being put down correctly as they grew. Then when those calves started growing quickly, adding more weight to a fragile skeletal frame, their bones didn’t have enough structural strength. After the source of the problem was found, Lusk was able to inject the calves with vitamin D. Within two weeks they started improving bone strength, and within six weeks there was a dramatic change in their bones — they didn’t break any more legs. “Just knowing the physiology and pathophysiology behind rickets and the vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus interactions allowed us to make changes in management for that rancher,” he explains. “On dry years, when we preg-check those cows, we now give them an injection of vitamin D, and when they calve in the spring we give the calves vitamin D.” Their treatment resolved the problem for the producer, and he became proactive to avoid this problem again in dry years. “If he hadn’t had a way to find out what he was dealing with or how to resolve it, or how to get the resources to help with it, this could have been a problem that repeated year after year,” Lusk notes. “Working with a veterinarian can make a big difference on the outcome.”

Preventing disease David Van Metre, associate professor and Extension veterinarian at Colorado State University, says many cattle diseases are more successfully prevented than treated. “If a serious health problem develops in a herd, something has already gone wrong,” he explains. “Most veterinarians can serve as an important resource for helping clients figure out why certain diseases show up, and how management and environment can be changed to help prevent disease.” Other ways veterinarians can be utilized in

Inviting a veterinarian out during vaccination time can provide an extra set of eyes to evaluate herd health.

cow-calf operations include designing herd health programs like vaccination, deworming strategies and treatment protocols to ensure appropriate medications are used for specific problems. John Hall, Extension beef specialist, University of Idaho, tells ranchers there are several advantages to having their veterinarian as a consultant. “This gives the veterinarian a chance to help the producer look over the entire operation in terms of herd health,” he says. “Together they can find weak areas, and identify places for improvement.” The veterinarian may suggest changes and perhaps help the producer get connected with other professionals — a nutritionist, an Extension agent or someone from the Natural Resources Conservation Service if there’s a water problem. Every operation is different, so there may be unique factors to address. It also helps if the rancher and veterinarian can work with a nutritionist regarding the overall health program. Nutrition affects everything else — such as fertility and the immune system. Hall advises ranchers to sit down with their veterinarian once or twice a year to discuss any problems experienced that year or to ask questions about new vaccines. “There’s not much difference in most vaccines, but cattlemen need to make sure they are using a vaccine that matches their management, production or health maintenance program,” he notes. By having the veterinarian as a consultant, a cattle producer can stay ahead of the game if there’s a change in vaccines or dewormers. “The veterinarian could talk about the most cost-

effective and rational strategy for treating certain diseases, including the common things like retained placenta, mastitis, or foot rot,” Van Metre says. The producer may manage cattle in a certain way each year with no problems until something changes. Environmental factors like the weather, more heifers calving and more cattle congregating in the late winter can result in health outbreaks a rancher has not seen before.

Management plan Herd health management must be a strategic plan, reevaluated every year. It’s a moving target. Producers should visit with their veterinarian to find out about new things available and what might be useful in the operation. The switch may also result in saving dollars in the end. It is also important to remember a neighbor’s success rate on a health program is not always indicative of how it will react with other herds. A veterinarian can often answer questions to shed light on a broader picture; every ranch is facing different challenges. For instance, there are more than 400 licensed vaccine products, and it can be challenging to know what to choose. They all work, but some may target different approaches. Discussing the options with a veterinarian, considering herd history and current management, is vital to discovering the best program per herd. A biosecurity program can also be a topic of interest. Looking at sources for new cattle and the importance of keeping purchased animals separate from the main herd until the producer knows they are free of disease is critical. Even if a producer is doing everything possible to ensure good herd health, a challenge can arise if someone in the grazing association or across the fence is doing the minimum. Ranchers should make a conscious effort to understand some of the diseases that could possibly be brought into a herd, and know the risks. A little money spent on consultation with a veterinarian might prevent a big wreck down the road. Mark Bramwell, DVM, at South Fork Veterinary Clinic in Rigby, Idaho, says a good relationship with a veterinarian can help a producer be more successful. “At producer meetings we provide information on ways ranchers can improve their management and be more successful in aspects that will be helpful in their business,” he explains. “We talk about minerals and the huge health benefits for cattle that are not mineral-deficient. In our region, we have severe mineral deficiencies, particularly copper and selenium.” It is not uncommon for Bramwell’s office to reach out to ranchers to offer time to perform a consultation. At the end of the day the veterinarians want the producer to be as successful as possible under their care. “It all comes down to trust,” Bramwell explains. “We also try to keep prices on our medications competitive, so ranchers will come in to buy vaccines or antibiotics, and sometimes they ask to talk to a veterinarian so we can chat with them then.” This contact opens continued on page 40...

the door to some consultations, and the veterinarian can do more than just sell the product. Hall says the veterinarian has to make a living, just like everyone else. “One way to do that is to charge a high fee every time the rancher has an emergency,” he explains. “The other way is by helping the rancher increase profit margin by charging a fee for expertise in certain areas — and possibly prevent those catastrophes. If the rancher can save three more calves, or get three more cows bred, he/she can afford that consultation. Putting the veterinarian into a partnership role can pay off for the producer.” It’s harder to become educated about health issues when the only opportunity to talk with a veterinarian is during an emergency. It’s hard for a veterinarian to concentrate on anything else other than dealing with that particular emergency. “During times of year when things are a little slow for both of you, you could get together and look over things,” Hall says. This time provides an opportunity to look at what kinds of problems arose last year and what things can be done differently. Some topics may include calving rate, length of calving season and phenotype of born calves. The vet is probably more objective, looking at body condition, to help a client evaluate the herd. A growing number of veterinarians are helping clients with records and recordkeeping systems. All of these add up to a chance to fine-tune the health management of the operation, resulting in fewer losses and more profit for the rancher. Van Metre stresses the need for veterinarians to explain and demonstrate health care procedures and diagnostics. “The vast majority of ranchers want to do a good job; they want to raise healthy animals and are willing to learn,” he notes. “Our side of

A veterinarian as an information filter David Van Metre, associate professor and Extension veterinarian at Colorado State University, says making sensible and cost-effective treatment protocols not only helps minimize treatment costs and maximize treatment success but also can be important in quality assurance and residue avoidance. Some stockmen have other businesses outside of their cattle operation. The last data Van Metre saw revealed only about one in seven U.S. cow-calf operations has cattle as its primary source of income. Most of the cattle in the U.S. are produced by people with herds of 50 cows or fewer. “Typically those stockmen have other jobs and raise cattle on the side,” he explains. “It can be hard for a rancher to wade through all the data regarding efficacy of certain vaccines, the proper utilization of vaccine or deworming drugs, the appropriate antibiotics to use for different respiratory conditions in different animals. The primary source of exposure to many products comes from advertising in lay journals and those won’t always show the data that would give a chance to compare claims to efficacy. This is where veterinarians can offer expertise; we are trained in how to critically evaluate scientific literature and can help clients determine whether or not a particular product has been proven useful in the scenarios they will face.” The veterinarian can be an information filter to help make sense of it all. He or she has access to scientific publications that can prove or disprove the utility of a certain animal health product in a particular setting. If cattle are scattered in large pastures in a northern climate, the need for parasite control is much different from that for intensively pastured cattle in Alabama, for instance. “One of our responsibilities is to stay on top of new product developments, and to ask the important questions that a producer needs answered, in order to make the right decisions about which product to use. Product scrutiny and validation of efficacy claims for different products is part of our job,” Van Metre says.

the obligation is to have the capacity to teach. The opportunity to teach is a two-way street; the rancher must be willing to learn, and the veterinarian must be willing to listen and learn as well. For example, some of the best tips on helping heifers with dystocia I learned from a rancher.” Most ranchers work with their veterinarian on common taskbased things such as pregnancy diagnosis, but there is much to be gained by also working together on sound, scientifically valid disease prevention strategies.

Another set of eyes “If clients trust us, they’ll have us out to do their Bangs vaccinations and preg-checking, and then we may also be able to do some liver biopsies to check selenium and copper status,” Bramwell says. “If the rancher has an outbreak of disease he or she is more likely to call us to try to figure it out and maybe do some necropsy work and diagnostics.” If the veterinarian is there pregnancy-checking, he or she is an extra set of eyes to assess herd health issues — to suspect a copper deficiency or some other situation the client needs to be aware of. The veterinarian can also check teeth, eyes, body condition scores, etc. and not only suggest things that might help the producer deal with situations at hand, but also give input that might help in future management decisions. Hall tells ranchers it’s good to get someone else to look at their cattle. “When you are looking at your own operation every day, you become accustomed to how things look and might not notice something an impartial observer might see. If the vet is out there periodically and familiar with the farm or ranch, he or she may be able to see changes more readily,” Hall says. When veterinarians only get to see sick animals, they only see what has gone wrong. By seeing a sick calf in the clinic, they can only deduce what’s wrong with it and which pathogens are making it sick. Veterinarians can’t always tell the producer why something happened until they get out on the place. Hall says that knowing why things happen on a ranch is key to helping prevent future problems. “Many ranchers simply look at the check they have to write for pregnancy testing and avoid calling the veterinarian any other time unless it’s an emergency. But we want them to know that if they see a problem or have a question they could just make a phone call or have the veterinarian out now and then to walk through things and talk about preventative management,” Hall explains. “There is so much that can be gleaned from just having someone looking at things from a different perspective as we walk through a pen and look at the animals.” “We can look at body condition, hair coat health and color, eyes, and more,” Lusk says. “We can talk about parasites, minerals, water sources and feed. We can help head off scour outbreaks or pneumonia, with advance consultation and advice to producers so they can make some management changes.” Some clients may benefit from learning about proper calfpulling techniques or how to get a compromised calf breathing or how to provide colostrum to newborns that are unable to suckle. Some producers are proactive in their efforts to prevent illness in young calves and want to do all they can to minimize risk. They may want to learn better treatment techniques for the ones that do get sick or how to give IV fluids to a calf. “If they want to learn how to pull calves better, or give IVs, we are happy to help them,” Lusk notes. “Some veterinarians are afraid that if their clients learn how to take care of the animals and do these things it will cut down on their work, but our philosophy is just the opposite. We find that the more we teach clients, the more work we have.” The educated client realizes the benefits of working with a veterinarian and values that relationship. He says these clients know that they are benefiting from this additionl knowledge and that their cattle are healthier and more productive because they are doing a better job with their cows. He notices those producers often consult veterinarians more often for advice or to ask a question, rather than waiting until an emergency before they call. Good relationships with clients prompt problem solving, even across a simple phone call. “I have several clients that I have enough confidence in that I can tell them over the phone what to do to resolve something, or I can tell them it’s something we are seeing in herds this year, or struggling with on another farm,” he explains. “I can give suggestions for what to try or what to look for and have the rancher call me back and let me know.”

expensive, but there may be adverse side effects for the animal if it receives too much of a certain drug. Overuse of antibiotics in some situations may kill off the “good bugs” in the digestive tract and lead to other problems.

Dose matters for deworming

Proper Dosage Cutting corners on dosage can cost big in the end for cattle producers. by Heather Smith Thomas

W

hen treating cattle with antibiotics, dewormers and other medications, it is important to use the proper dosage — which is generally determined by weight of the animal. Thus, it is crucial to know the actual weight, rather than guessing. Underdosing may not give the desired results, and overdosing can be harmful. In the case of dewormers, underdosing will not kill all the parasites and may lead to drug resistance. “There are several reasons to not overdose or underdose,” says Steve Hendrick, DVM, Coaldale Veterinary Clinic, Coaldale, Alberta. Hendrick’s clinic is a feedlot, dairy and cow-calf practice primarily, and he consistently sees producers wasting money by improperly treating animals. Hendrick says underdosing wastes money and the animal gets little or no benefit from the product. On the other side of the coin, the producer is also wasting money overdosing by spending more than needed on that animal. “If you overdose, it’s costly,” Hendrick explains. “Underdosing runs the risk of not being effective, and a chance for some of the more resistant parasites or pathogens to survive. There is a big push today to try to avoid development of resistant microbes or parasites. One of the main ways producers perpetuate this problem is continuously underdosing.” Erring on the side of overdose is still not the answer, because there are also disadvantages when overdosing. Not only will it be

Gary Sides, Ph.D., a cattle nutritionist with Zoetis, points to a study in 2004 that looked at the effects of dewormers used in feedlots. “At that time, there were many producers using just a half dose of Dectomax injectable, trying to save money at processing, and believing this dosage would be adequate,” he explains. “Therefore a group of four veterinarians ran a trial to see if this was effective. They took cattle off grass in California and put them in a feedlot in Nebraska. One third of the cattle were not treated, one third got a half dose of injectable Dectomax dewormer and the other third of the cattle got a full dose of that product.” When they slaughtered the cattle, they weren’t able to get feed efficiency results because the cattle were all in the same pen, but they had individual identification on all the cattle and did get carcass weight, daily gain and percentage of the cattle grading Choice/Prime. Researchers reported a 22-lb. difference on carcass weight between the full dose and the no dose cattle, and statistically no difference between the no dose and the half dose cattle. It was deduced the half dose had no noticeable benefit. In essence, using it was a waste of money. “Looking at the percent of cattle grading Choice/Prime, there was also no difference between the half dose and the no dose cattle, but there was a 16% advantage in Choice/Prime in the full dose cattle,” he says. Viewing the situation as cow-calf operators, producers need to make sure they are actually giving these animals enough dewormer. Sides says very few people actually have 1,000 lb. cows anymore — 1,400 or 1,500 lb. is more accurate. Sides advises producers to keep that statistic in mind when determining what the adequate dosage is for a product. Parasite resistance is another important reason to never underdose. “Continuous exposure to less than adequate dosage is what selects for resistance in the parasites,” he says. The most susceptible parasites might die, but the resistant ones survive — and they become the predominant population. This problem may be more of an issue in a pasture cow-calf operation with ongoing worm transmission. Feedlot cattle don’t stay around as long, and the parasites aren’t transmitted or reproducing in a drylot. Thus, the worm resistance could become more of a problem in the long run for the cow-calf or stocker operation. Regarding efficacy, however, deworming at the proper dosage is just as crucial in the feedlot. “It was a feedlot study that showed reduced gain and grade with inadequate dosage — in cattle consuming the best diet known to science,” Sides recalls. “There wasn’t any nutritional stress on these cattle, but they still had a negative response to a half dose.” Sides says internal parasites inhibit feed intake and reduce digestibility. Thus, if the parasites aren’t destroyed, the negative response can be measured in the feedlot.

Vaccines are different Hendrick says vaccines are not an issue regarding dose. They are usually dosed at two milliliters or five milliliters per head, depending on the product. The purpose is to provide antigen to stimulate an immune response, and it is not weight-specific. Nathan Erickson, assistant professor, Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, says some producers ask if they should give the same vaccine dose to a calf versus a mature cow, and the answer is yes. “With vaccines, it’s not about size of the dose; it’s the amount of antigen that is in that dose,” Erickson notes. “Whether the animal is large or small, it needs the same amount of antigen to stimulate immune response.” Antibiotics and dewormers are a different story regarding size of the animal, but for any injection, each animal needs to be given the dose specified on the label, administered at the proper site on the animal and by the proper route listed on the label — subcutaneous (SubQ), intramuscular (IM) or intranasal (IN). “If there is an option on the label [SubQ or IM] for an injected drug or medication, go with the SubQ route and dosage, because there is a smaller chance of creating fibrosis or scarring,” Erickson advises. “If the label includes both routes as options, SubQ administration is always preferred over IM injections.” When giving any injection, make sure the entire dose is deposited where it should go and that none of it leaks back out — or the animal Hereford.org


may not receive an effective dose. “It helps if you use the proper size needle for the animal,” he says. Needle size is dependent on size of the animal, how thick the skin is and the injection method. When giving oral medication or oral dewormers, Hendrick says to keep in mind there’s a chance the animal won’t swallow the dose. The correct technique — over the tongue and at the back of the mouth — will assure the animal is actually swallowing and not wasting it. If the animal spits it out, money is wasted, and the animal is not treated. Proper restraint is also important when medicating animals. This enables producers to use proper technique, whether giving oral medication or an injection. For instance, when giving a subcutaneous injection the animal should be restrained so the entire dose gets deposited under the skin and doesn’t leak out. Producers may think they are administrating the proper dose, but if it doesn’t get there, they are underdosing. When giving antibiotics, there are several important considerations. “One reason it is important to always administer according to label directions, with proper dosage, is for withdrawal times,” Erickson says. “The withdrawal times established for that antibiotic are based on giving the correct dose, for the correct duration and by the correct method. If an animal is overdosed or given an antibiotic more days than recommended, or by incorrect route, it may take longer for residues to be eliminated from the animal’s body.” He says correct dosage is always important for multiple reasons that include food safety, minimizing the chance for development of resistant pathogens and parasites, and efficacy — for the health of the animal.

A chute with a scale can increase accuracy on dosage in an efficient matter.

are roping the animal and trying to guess the weight,” Erickson notes. “If you are on a Verified Beef program it is important that you are dosing those animals correctly and have records showing that you are dosing them correctly.” When using a topical pour-on product for deworming or delousing, follow label directions for the dose, applying it all the way from withers to tailhead. Some delousing products also recommend applying them along the top of the neck and on the poll. “Some producers feel that as long as it hits the animal, it’s acceptable, but maybe it doesn’t all get on the animal,” Hendrick says. “Putting it down the middle of the back is not always possible or practical, but if people knew how important this is, they might make more effort to do this, rather than just squirting it on the side of the animal.” Strive for accuracy Proper topical application of a delousing product will help To be most effective, the dosage should always be appropriate for control lice, especially biting lice that an injectable product won’t size and age of the animal. “This means knowing the weight of the control. According to Erickson, the only way those lice come into animal you are treating,” Hendrick says. “I’ve had the opportunity contact with the product is by moving through it, so producers to work in research herds and ranchers’ herds, running cattle need to spread it along the entire topline of the animal. through the chute, and we often wager bets on what a certain Proper dosage is also important with calves. When treating animal weighs before it’s on the scale. Producers might think their sick calves that might be dehydrated, be aware of the dangers of cows weigh about 1,200 lb., when in reality they have some that overdosing with certain antibiotics and with anti-inflammatories. weigh 1,600 to 1,800 lb. When trying to estimate weight, people “If the calf is severely dehydrated some drugs can be hard on can easily be off by 200 lb. or more.” the kidneys and other organs,” Hendrick explains. “Since calves One study in South Africa had health professionals and are so small, it doesn’t take much for them to become severely producers estimating cattle weights, and, in general, the producers dehydrated if they have scours.” tended to underestimate the weight of their animals. By using weight An overdose could be risky for a calf, especially with antitapes or, even better, using a scale, producers can improve accuracy inflammatory medications that tend to damage the kidneys if of weight-based dosage and also become better at estimating weights. there’s not enough fluid to dilute the drugs when they are being “I know from experience looking at feedlot animals or going out excreted in the urine. “A calf’s body generally contains a higher on a ranch to treat calves, once you get them restrained or on the water content than an adult, and they also dehydrate more readily,” ground it’s tough sometimes to estimate their weight,” Hendrick he says.

Herd Health

What’s

Normal and What’s Not? Detecting signs of illness in cattle. by Heather Smith Thomas

C

onscientious stockmen learn to tell the difference between a healthy animal and a sick one. It helps to be able to detect subtle signs of early disease. Early detection and early treatment can often make the difference of life or death, quick recovery or prolonged treatment and convalescence. Disease is any condition resulting in impairment of normal function. Individuals tend to think of a disease as something caused by infection with bacteria or viruses, but poor health can also be the result of parasites, malnutrition, congenital defects or injury — anything interfering with proper body function. The best way to become a good judge of health and a reader of subtle early signs of disease is to spend time with the cattle. Seeing them on a regular basis enables producers to recognize the signs of health or sickness. Brandon Dominguez, DVM, MS, clinical associate professor of large animal clinical sciences at Texas A&M University, says when going into a pen or pasture to check cattle, the first impression can often give clues regarding whether any of them are not feeling well. “If one is off by itself, or you notice one that’s not eating when you’d expect them to be eating, this might be a tip that something is wrong,” he explains.

| February 2018

According to Tom Hairgrove, Ph.D., associate professor and Extension specialist at Texas A&M, it’s also helpful to assess body condition. “When looking at a group of animals to assess health or signs of sickness, the things we need to look at include current nutritional status,” he advises. “If there are 20 cows and two of them look poor and 18 are in good condition, this may be a clue. Sometimes we’ll see weight loss associated with certain problems as one of the first signs.”

Body language The healthy cow or calf is bright, alert and has a good appetite or is grazing with the herd during times of day the cattle are foraging. Dominguez says cattle generally graze during the mornings, late afternoon and evening, lying down during the middle of the day — especially during hot weather. If an animal is slow to come to feed or spends more time than herdmates lying around instead of grazing or eating hay, take a closer look. Glennon Mays, Ph.D., clinical associate professor at Texas A&M, says the first thing to note is an animal off by itself. Any animal that doesn’t show up or is slow to come to the feed should be looked for or checked more closely. “An older bull may get lazy and might be sluggish coming to the feed wagon, and you might be tempted to think he’s just lazy and slow — and pour out the pellets and go on to the next group or pasture,” he explains. “But it’s a good idea to stick around a bit longer to see if that animal actually comes to the feed and whether or not he eats.” Sometimes an animal will start eating and then quit, just nibble or push the feed around. Make sure each animal is actually eating normally and with good appetite. Any animal off by itself should be cause for concern — unless it’s a cow that leaves the herd to deliver her calf. A sick or lame animal often seeks solitude to avoid the jostling and pestering from bossier individuals. Curious herd members or subordinate animals that ordinarily defer to that individual may take advantage of the sick one and chase it around. It’s a natural instinct for the compromised individual to leave the group when not feeling well or unable to defend itself. Any animal lying down when the rest of the herd is eating should be cause for suspicion. If it seems healthy and normal in other aspects, make it get up and walk a few steps to see if it’s lame. The sick animal may be dull with ears drooping or may have other subtle signs that give clues to a problem. Not chewing the cud may be indicative of pain, fever or a digestive problem that halts rumen activity. An animal with a high fever will not chew the cud. On closer inspection, look for sunken eyes, a moist cough, a snotty nose or any other indication of illness. If it’s a very young calf, make sure it’s nursing, and the cow’s teats are not too large for the calf to suck. Make sure the cow doesn’t have mastitis, sore teats or some other problem that Hereford.org


interferes with her ability to produce milk or to allow the calf to nurse. If her udder is sore, she may be kicking the calf off. Pay attention to any cow with a full udder. If her calf hasn’t suckled recently, the calf may be ill. Often the first sign of sickness in a young calf — even before it shows signs of pneumonia or breaks with scours — is that it doesn’t feel like eating. “If the cow has a big, swollen bag, this could be an indication that her calf is sick or she has mastitis and isn’t letting the calf nurse,” Dominguez says. Charlie Deyhle Jr., DVM, Canyon, Texas, has practiced veterinary medicine for 40 years. “It’s crucial to be able to identify the calf that doesn’t feel well,” he explains. “Usually your first impression is correct.” Even if the calf doesn’t feel good, it may become more alert as a reaction to seeing the rancher. Cattle are prey animals, and the calf doesn’t want to let anyone know it doesn’t feel good, because it doesn’t want to be singled out by a predator. It’s wise to quietly observe cattle from a distance at first before they become aware of your presence — in order to detect any that might be a little dull. Know what is normal and not normal for the herd. “We have to consider breed disposition and general attitude,” Deyle says. “If you look at them early in the morning when they are waking up, this can give clues about how they feel — when they are just getting up and stretching. We see most of the signs of nasal discharge and congestion early in the morning before they have been up and moving and warmed up with sunlight on them.” Mays suggests producers might even look at them with binoculars before they get close to them. He says it makes it easier to pick out any individuals needing a closer look — before they become alert and harder to pick out of the herd. After cattle have been worked or processed, they need to be closely monitored. “If they’ve been handled, transported, put down chutes or restrained, check them closely afterward,” Mays advises. “Maybe one of them got a foot entrapped, and it didn’t cause a noticeable problem at the time, but a day later it might be a problem.” He further stresses the importance of checking cattle after processing because they could be blind, ill or lame.

chest pain or difficulty breathing. A bloated animal will try to stand with the front end uphill, where the front feet are higher, for easier belching. “An animal standing with an extended neck should be looked at more closely,” Mays notes. “It may be having trouble breathing, or in pain. An animal with a cocked tail and maintaining that tail position — that hasn’t just defecated or urinated — may be another clue.” He says if the cow is pregnant and she’s straining, this may indicate a dystocia. In contrast, the same symptoms with a stocker animal may mean an abdominal issue. Some infectious diseases or toxins can even produce abnormal posturing in tail carriage, the way they are standing or position of head and neck. He says any different, abnormal or unexpected posturing of the body could be signs for certain things that need investigating. When an animal is lying down, an abnormal or awkward position may mean a sore or dislocated leg or an attempt to ease internal pain. An animal with pneumonia may lie on the breastbone for easier breathing. Whereas a sick animal often lies with its head tucked around toward the flank. This is also a normal sleeping position, but if the animal is not sleeping, the head-tucked-around position may mean it’s not feeling well. Lack of desire to get up when approached is usually a clue animals are sick. An animal that feels good will usually stretch when it first gets up and show interest in its surroundings. The healthy animal is alert and perky and may also spend some time licking itself. When traveling, animals move freely and easily with energy. By contrast, sick animals may be dull with decreased interest in things around them with less response to external stimuli and may be more tuned in to their own internal discomfort. They may be standing with eyes closed and head drooping. If they are lying down, they get up slowly or with effort and may not stretch. An animal would usually be too preoccupied with discomfort to lick itself. Movement may be slow and methodical or pained. If the animal is forced to move, it will usually walk slowly rather than energetically. An animal with pain, discomfort or fever doesn’t move “right” and lacks the sparkle of vitality and health of a normal animal. “If the animal moves with soreness or discomfort, this should make you suspicious,” Mays notes. “Sometimes they might drag their toes, especially the hind legs, or knuckle over in the ankle joints.” If the animal is lying down, make it get up and move. Just because it’s lying there, seemingly comfortable and chewing the cud, doesn’t mean there’s no problem. “You need to check on that animal’s ability to rise and stand, and walk off,” Mays advises. “Maybe that individual is three-legged lame, but you won’t know until you make it get up. Cattle are stoic and have a high pain tolerance, and first appearance might be deceptive.” If the herd is being moved from one pasture to another, the sick individual ends up at the rear, traveling slower. The more serious the illness, the more indifferent the animal may be to its surroundings and more reluctant to move. At the other extreme is the abnormally excited animal. If the animal is overly alert or anxious, constantly looking around or restless — not acting normally — this behavior may be a sign of constant pain or discomfort. This may be the case with a cow in early labor or an individual suffering from some other condition causing pain or distress. Abdominal pain may cause an animal to be restless, kicking at the belly or switching the tail, looking around at its flanks or lying down and getting up repeatedly. continued on page 52...

Abnormal posture Any abnormal posture should be noted. Resting a leg or sticking it out to the side instead of putting full weight on it may mean a sore foot or leg and lameness. Arching the back with all four legs bunched up under the body usually indicates abdominal pain or chest pain due to pneumonia. Downward arching of the back may mean severe abdominal pain. Wide-placed front legs could mean Hereford.org

someone a lot about what the animal is eating and the health of that animal. With some digestive problems, the animal becomes constipated, and the act of passing manure may be difficult and prolonged, with straining and pain. Manure may be firm and dry or absent if there’s gut blockage. If it is possible to get the cow up, it’s wise to make her walk and follow her to see if she passes manure. If she doesn’t, there may be a problem. At the other extreme is diarrhea. Severe diarrhea in some instances, as in coccidiosis, may cause so much irritation to the rectum that the animal strains continually and may prolapse the rectum. Urination may be absent or scanty if the animal is dehydrated or has not been drinking enough. Urination may be difficult if there’s obstruction or partial blockage of the urinary tract, such as a bladder stone or inflammation of the bladder or the urethra. The animal may dribble small amounts of urine, remain in urinating position for a long time, kick at the belly in pain or stand stretched.

If it’s 9 a.m., the respiration rate should be lower. If the animal has increased respiration at that time of day, look at other animals in the group and compare.” Previous exertion will also elevate the respiration rate. Appearance of the animal can give clues as to whether it’s ill or merely hot. If in doubt, restrain the animal and take its temperature. Abnormal breathing may be audible if the animal is having trouble drawing air into the lungs through narrowed airways or having trouble forcing it out due to compromised lungs. A respiratory problem may also cause exaggerated flank movements.

Eating habits and digestion Another clue regarding health or sickness is whether eating habits are normal. “Look for lack of gut fill,” Deyhle says. “Sick cattle don’t eat, and cattle that don’t eat get sick. This may be influenced by what you are feeding them, but most cattle go off feed if they are sick.” On closer inspection, the breeder should ask themself, ”Does the animal chew and swallow properly, or is swallowing painful? Is saliva or feed drooling from the mouth? Is the animal unable to belch up and chew the cud? Is cud spilling from the mouth? Is the animal coughing up food or regurgitating stomach contents out the nostrils? Is there grunting or extra effort involved in belching up the cud? Is the animal grinding its teeth?” Overactive “chewing” and teeth grinding are signs of belly pain, especially in calves. A calf with a digestive problem or gut pain will often grind its teeth. “Is fecal material red, brown, black, transparent and horizontal (watery diarrhea shooting out in a stream), or normal?” Deyhle asks. The color and texture of calf feces or cow manure can tell

Herd Health

body builds protective antibodies to fight the perceived invader. When the animal comes into contact later with the actual infectious agent, the antibody is present in the bloodstream and can inactivate the pathogen. If enough antibodies are present to inactivate the agents invading the body, the animal will not get sick, and the invasion stimulates rapid production of more antibodies for future protection. A cow in a natural environment may not become exposed to very many disease-causing organisms, but most cattle are grouped or confined during some parts of the year and come in contact with other cattle, providing more chance of disease spread. However, with vaccination and natural exposure to various pathogens, the cow develops antibodies and strong immunity. During late pregnancy, she puts these antibodies into the colostrum she produces, so her calf will have instant immunity after it suckles.

nfectious diseases occur when the body is overwhelmed by pathogens. A healthy animal with strong immunity is less likely to become sick than an animal with poor immunity. Immunity refers to the body’s ability to fight off pathogens, and this ability is developed in a complex process in which the body creates specific weapons for fighting specific invaders. One type of weapon involves the production of antibodies. When pathogens, such as viruses or bacteria, enter the body, they cause damage by multiplying and creating toxic products. This stimulates the body to create an antibody — a serum protein called an immunoglobulin — to react with the invading agent and to neutralize it. These antibodies are carried throughout the body in the bloodstream. The main role of one type of lymphocyte — the white blood cell — is to produce antibodies. Those antibodies are the proteins that can neutralize certain infectious agents. If an animal already has antibodies against a specific disease organism, then any time that particular organism invades the body again an army of white blood cells and antibodies converge on the site to kill the invader. Exposure to one strain of an organism may result in immunity to that specific strain, but it might not protect against other strains of the same organism. Antibody immunity depends on the level of exposure, stresses on the animal, general nutrition status and current health. A severe outbreak of disease in a herd may eventually break down a healthy animal’s immunity, and it will overwhelm a stressed animal’s defenses even sooner. Vaccination can stimulate production of antibodies, since the vaccine serves as the antigen — an invading pathogen. The

Andy Acton, DVM, Deep South Animal Clinic, Ogema, Saskatchewan, reminds producers that baby calves are not born with their own antibodies. He says it is critical they absorb antibodies from their mother’s colostrum because they don’t get any from her via the bloodstream while they are in the uterus. “There is more to it than this temporary immunity,” he explains. “There are more benefits from the colostrum than just the antibodies absorbed when calves suckle the first time. There is also some absorption of white blood cells of different kinds in that colostrum from their mother. These are not present in a colostrum replacer you’d buy.” Calves always get more actual protection from the dam’s colostrum than from a commercial product. He says some of the immune modulators in colostrum that are not actual antibodies are also important to the calf. It is important that producers remember newborns have a limited window of time to absorb antibodies from colostrum. “The optimal time is during the first six hours of life, but it may be less than that in certain conditions — perhaps just the first two hours in cold weather,” Acton notes. As soon as the calf suckles, the “open gut” starts to close to prevent absorption of pathogens. Suckling stimulates the gut to close up, because it’s always a race between the antibodies from colostrum and the pathogens the calf might ingest. If a calf manages to suck a little bit or if the producer feeds him a little, the gut closes up quicker than if the calf has had nothing. “The time window for the gut to absorb something in this situation is a lot longer than if the calf gets a small amount of colostrum,” he explains. Acton has 40 cows himself and he recalls a situation where an old cow made her bag just before she calved, and it left him with a challenge in the end. “When I went into the barn after she calved, it looked like the calf had sucked one quarter. I thought he was off to a good start,” he notes. A number of hours later I looked at that pair again and wasn’t sure, because the other three quarters were still full. I put that cow in the chute to check, and the quarter I thought he’d sucked was blind. The calf might have been sucking on it, but there was no milk. I got fooled because she hadn’t bagged up till the end, and I didn’t know that quarter wasn’t producing anything.” By then the calf was 14 hours old and had never had anything to eat. Acton says that in his own small herd over the years, he has had cows show a number of ways in which he thought the calf did suck but actually hadn’t. The confusion did not result from not looking or checking but, instead, an abnormal situation. Even in a wellmanaged herd, there will be approximately 6 to 20% of calves that don’t get as much colostrum as they should. He says they are below what veterinarians consider the cutoff for good antibody levels. In some situations, the calf is unable to get any colostrum. Sometimes a heifer won’t let her calf get to the udder. In other situations, the calf may be at the udder, but the calf is just sucking the side of the teat and doesn’t really have the teat in its mouth. In cold weather, a cow’s teats may get frostbitten before she calves, and there may be a little scarring or scab at the end of the teat and the calf can’t get the teat started. The calf may get nothing unless the cow is restrained to get those scabs off and get the teats started. “On some of my calves I check antibody levels in their blood,” Acton explains. “They need a bit of time to absorb the colostrum, but afterward you can get an idea pretty quickly — from a blood sample, a centrifuge and a refractometer — to know if they’ve had any.” Acton says when he notices a calf is low, he can supplement with colostrum every two hours until the levels are normal. “A person must be careful doing that, however, watching the calf to make sure it is strong enough to handle the extra Hereford.org


Colostrum prompts performance Acton recalls a study testing approximately 1,000 calves from several different farms. Researchers blood tested the calves to measure the calves’ antibody level, as one of the measures of whether they had nursed or not. The bottom one-fifth was called a fail because those calves probably hadn’t gotten much colostrum. Later, those calves weighed about 30 to 40 lbs. less at weaning than the other calves. This lower weight was not due to sickness; the calves just didn’t perform as well. Calves get off to a better start if they have adequate colostrum soon after birth. “It becomes the producers’ decision regarding how they want to manage this,” he notes. “If they have the facilities, they can manage it if they want to. Certain kinds of extensive operations where cattle are calving in large areas with range cows, this would be difficult. Those cows are generally on their own. With that kind of setup, you want really good calf vigor — calves that can get right up and suckle quickly.” That producer wouldn’t want to be calving in severely cold weather. Also, the cows would need adequate nutrition to have a strong, healthy calf. Acton says calf vigor at birth is the key to success on many ranch operations. It requires good nutrition with the cows in good shape and all the vitamins and minerals needed in a good supplement program. With that, the calves have a good chance to be vigorous at birth, especially if they are not at the heavy end of birthweight. If a cow must calve unassisted with a strong, lively calf that can get right up, it is ideal to have some genetic selection for moderate birthweights. Calving in warmer weather is an advantage in this situation because the calf doesn’t get chilled and has a longer time to work at trying to suckle before it gives up. There are some advantages to calving later with cows out in big pastures unassisted, but if something goes wrong, the breeder is not there to intervene in order to correct a problem. Mother Nature is very impartial and doesn’t care if some of those newborns don’t make it. “When producers want the cows to take care of it on their own, they do have to accept a certain amount of loss,” Acton notes. “There is some definite benefit to making sure every calf suckled an adequate amount of colostrum soon enough but this requires some facilities and more labor. The rancher must weigh these alternatives. Is this a payoff that will be worth your time? Producers must make these choices.” Dealing with ill young calves can be an uphill battle for veterinarians. Acton says when they don’t have the needed antibodies in place it creates a whole new challenge in treating them. “There are some things that can be done when they are older, and you know they didn’t suckle soon enough,” he explains. “You can try plasma transfusions or blood transfusions. I’ve done a few of those — from the mother to the calf — but it’s difficult because you have to give so much volume. I do process some plasma myself to have on hand in case a purebred calf or club calf comes in and the client really wants to have this done. I’ve seen remarkable results doing this with foals that didn’t get adequate colostrum, and it can also be done in calves.” He says a transfusion can be very labor-intensive in the clinic. However, it has helped those calves get up to a normal level and do well. Still, it’s much simpler, however, to try to work within that window of time after birth and to make sure the calf suckles enough colostrum.

Colostrum alternatives Sometimes when the producer knows the calf hasn’t suckled, a colostrum alternative is used. Acton’s clinic uses a lot of powdered colostrum products. An option some stockmen use is dairy colostrum, but because of the volume produced by a dairy cow with less concentrated antibodies, twice as much is needed to get enough benefit. “Today it’s not advisable to use dairy colostrum, and we now have better quality colostrum replacers,” Acton explains. “Commercial replacements don’t have the cellular components found in fresh colostrum, because those cells won’t survive the processing, but they do have fairly good immunoglobulin levels. One or two of the 100-gram packages will provide a calf with seemingly adequate immunity. It is certainly better than nothing.” Hereford.org

The best option, however, is to milk some extra colostrum from the herd to freeze for later use. Acton recommends putting approximately one quart of colostrum into a two- or three-quart Ziploc freezer bag, freezing it flat. Bags can be stacked in the freezer easily and will thaw quickly in warm water. The frozen colostrum, thawed and warmed to a calf’s body temperature, can be very helpful, when needed. Only the first milking should be used for colostrum. It is soon diluted by regular milk. “After a cow has calved and you want to milk colostrum from her, we suggest giving her at least 1 mL. of oxytocin before milking her [if you are sure she doesn’t have a twin still inside her], so she will let down her milk,” he explains. “You can get a lot more from Supplementing calves with colostrum can be done, but her more easily that way.” producers should assure the calf is strong enough to handle the extra. With a gentle cow that produces a lot of colostrum, Acton says to sneak up beside her calf as it is nursing the first time and milk some as her calf is sucking. She will let her milk down nicely for her calf, and extra can be milked out to freeze. “For some of our clients who are milking colostrum, we suggest using a small dose of mild sedative,” he advises. “This is something to discuss with your own veterinarian. This will relax the cow if she’s nervous. This is probably the only time in her life that she’ll ever be milked, and she will likely hold up her milk. If she is relaxed, you will be much more successful. We give our clients the sedative and oxytocin together.” A small container should be used to collect the colostrum. “Milking into a large container is risky because if the cow kicks, you may lose all your colostrum,” he says. “We milk into a small container that can be held with one hand that can be quickly pulled out of the way.” A small plastic pitcher with a handle works nicely — the smaller the better. He says to keep dumping the milk into a larger container so that if some is lost, there is still some to use.

feeding,” he warns. “You don’t want to overfeed a weak calf that might regurgitate. “Producers must decide how much intervention and effort to put into making sure every calf suckles on time,” he advises. “We know that if colostrum intake is managed well, the health of the calf and performance of that calf will be far better.”

Vaccinations to boost immunity Andy Acton, DVM, Deep South Animal Clinic, Ogema, Saskatchewan, says some people vaccinate calves at birth, some vaccinate at branding time and often the producer wonders when the best timing might be. “When calves are very young, antibodies received from colostrum interfere with the calf producing antibodies,” he explains. “Earlier thinking was that vaccinating a very young calf didn’t do any good because of these maternal antibodies, but more recently we’ve found out that early vaccination does produce a cellmediated immunity and also a memory. Then when you re-vaccinate that calf later, the second vaccination acts as a booster.” He says the calf won’t get as much antibody production when it is vaccinated young, but the calf will get some cell-mediated response. Thus, vaccinating calves earlier is more common all the time. Acton advises all calves get a blackleg vaccine — generally in a combination vaccine that also protects against C. perfringins and other clostridial diseases — by approximately two months of age. “At about the same time we also use respiratory vaccines on these calves, such as modified live viral vaccines [IBR-BVD-PI3] in combination with bacterial pneumonia vaccine [pasteurella, hystophilus],” he explains. “This provides some protection against summer pneumonia and gives an excellent base for fall boosters at weaning time. When producers give vaccines at or before weaning, the immune response is much higher and much better and more protective.” This vaccination pays off in less sickness at weaning, especially if the calves are weaned with minimal stress. There are intranasal respiratory vaccines that some producers use, depending on the individual operation. For herds that are winter calving, purebred herds with higher value calves or a commercial herd with a history of baby calf pneumonia, intranasal vaccines have been very helpful. He says they are easy on the calf, and because they are given intranasally, they are producing an immunoglobulin A response right where it is needed — locally, in the respiratory tract. “We are using those in some of the winter-calving herds that are confined and show a history of risk for early respiratory disease in young calves,” he says. “We give intranasal vaccines when the calves are a day or two old.” February 2018 |

Cow-Calf Cost Breakdown —

Breeding Expense Knowing breeding costs can give insight to improve profitability. by Aaron Berger, Nebraska Extension educator

A critical component of the cow-calf business is reproduction. Getting cows or heifers pregnant comes with the cost of breeding expense. The fourth largest expense for many cowcalf operations is breeding expense. Consider the following example. A cow-calf producer purchases a yearling bull for $5,000 and plans to use him

for four breeding seasons with an average of 25 cows per year.

breeding soundness exam of $75 each year for three years needs to be included also.

Bull cost First, let’s take into account costs on the bull side. • There is the expense of feeding the bull annually, which is estimated at $500 per year.

• Annual vet expense for a

• Credit the bull for his salvage

value. For this example use the purchase price of $5,000 - $1,500 salvage value = $3,500 bull cost.

Not every bull has a salvage value. Some die, so include a 2% death loss on an average bull value of $3,000, which is $60 per year. After all of these costs are included, the total cost for using the bull for four breeding seasons is $5,965. Not every cow that is exposed to the bull conceives. At a 92% pregnancy rate, 23 of the 25 cows placed with the bull get pregnant each year, for a total of 92 cows over four years. The total cost of $5,965/92 cows = $65 per cow per year. Purchase price, bull-to-cow ratio and years of service are all factors in bull breeding expense.

Calculated cost Nebraska Extension has developed an Excel spreadsheet titled the “Breeding Cost Cow-Q-Lator” that provides a format for calculating breeding expenses. As the spring bull buying season is just around the corner, consider evaluating costs associated with natural service and artificial insemination (AI). The “Breeding Cost Cow-Q-Lator” can be used to calculate breeding costs and allows for comparing natural service to AI. The spreadsheet can be downloaded at beef.unl.edu by clicking “Learning Modules” and “Beef Cow Reproduction” (beef.unl.edu/ breeding-cost-cow-q-lator). A presentation titled “Understanding and Using the Breeding Costs Cow-Q-Lator” discusses each spreadsheet segment and is also available on the site under “Videos and Webinars.” Evaluating the price per pregnancy using bulls and then comparing it to estimated cost per pregnancy utilizing AI can be an instructive exercise. As timed insemination protocols have become competitive with artificial insemination on detected heat, more producers are considering the option of utilizing AI. This spreadsheet provides a layout to compare the options of natural breeding versus AI. As breeding expenses are evaluated, the question many producers are asking is, “What value is received for the dollars spent?” This spreadsheet can help producers answer that question. Whether you utilize natural service, AI only, or AI with natural service, knowing costs involved with each option and evaluating them against one another can give insight into ways to improve profitability.

Identifies and Promotes High-Quality Feeder Cattle Cattlemen can add market power and brand recognition with feeder cattle sired by a Hereford bull battery ranking in the top 50% for CHB$. The American Hereford Association (AHA) is seeking to identify and promote high-quality groups of Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle to a growing number of reputable buyers.

74

| February 2018

“As commercial producers continue to realize the benefits of incorporating Hereford genetics into their operations, the AHA recognizes the opportunity to provide service to those producers,”

says Trey Befort, AHA director of commercial programs. The Hereford Advantage Program, launched in 2016, not only helps the commercial producer market their calves, but it also helps the Hereford

breeder build brand recognition for their product. This free tool consists of a simple feeder cattle information form, available through the AHA, that producers can complete and return. Along with many other fields, this form requires Hereford bull registration numbers that sired the calf crop, with transferred ownership. Group average expected progeny differences (EPDs) are then determined and include: yearling weight (YW), carcass weight (CW), marbling (MARB), ribeye area (REA) and Certified Hereford Beef index (CHB$). Because single trait selection has a negative effect on the development and improvement of the breed, the focus of this program will be put on the CHB$ index. Once the bull battery is verified to the producer who submitted the form and the group average CHB$ rank is in the top 50% of the Hereford breed is proven, the information is distributed to a list of reputable potential buyers. Additionally, this information can be provided to marketing representatives (i.e. video market reps, sale barn managers, etc.) at the producer’s discretion. Cattle that reach the top 50% CHB$ threshold will also be given the opportunity to utilize a special logo on whatever marketing documents and channels available. “The Hereford Advantage program helps us to focus on providing the best quality genetics that we can possibly provide to our customers, the cattle feeder,” says Nancy Bowling of Bowling Ranch, Newkirk, Okla. “We try to select bulls who will sire calves that will excel in the feedyard.” For questions or interest in the program please contact Trey Befort at the AHA at 816-842-3757. The Hereford Advantage program form is included on this page or can be downloaded at HerefordFeederCattle.com.

In the News Cattle genetics will be the focus of a new set of webinars to help cattlemen and women better use the tool in their operations. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is teaming up with six genetics specialists from across the country to offer the NCBA Cattlemen’s Genetics Webinar Series, which kicked off Jan. 18. Titled “Fake News: EPDs Don’t Work,” the January webinar will be followed by sessions in February, March and April that explore other aspects of genetic utilization that will give cattle producers a knowledge boost on cattle selection and breeding.

In Passing Arthur Ray Timberlake, 84, of Mauckport, Ind., passed away Dec. 12, 2017. Arthur and his father, Floyd, started Pilot Wheel Ranch in 1945, raising registered polled Hereford cattle. They exhibited at several county fairs and Indiana and Kentucky state shows. Arthur judged purebred cattle shows

around the country. Some of the most notable were the Fort Worth Stock Show; the SOP Hereford Show in Portland, Ore.; and the 1979 National Junior Polled Hereford Show. He served as a National Polled Hereford Association director from 1971-1977. He was a lifetime member of the American Hereford Association, the Indiana Hereford Association and the Kentucky Hereford Association and was a founder of the Indiana Poll-ette Association and the Indiana Junior Polled Hereford Association. He served for a total of 42 years with the Federal Land Bank and Farm Credit Services of Mid-America. He was a founding member and president of the Corydon Jaycees. He was a member of the Mauckport United Methodist Church. Arthur was a veteran of the United States Army having served as a supply sergeant in the Korean War. He is survived by his wife, Kathryn Eschbacher-Timberlake; daughter, Alice Cornelia Hayse; grandsons, Brian Austin and Luke Elliott Hayse; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives. Richard L. Willham, 85, Ames, Iowa, passed away Dec. 31, 2017. He received a bachelor’s degree in animal science and a master’s in animal breeding and genetics from Oklahoma A&M College. He later received his doctorate from Iowa State University in 1960. Before receiving his doctorate, Willham served as an officer in the United States Army in Korea. He then worked as an assistant professor of animal science at Iowa State University before accepting an associate professor position at Oklahoma State University. Willham returned to Iowa State in 1966 as an associate professor and was soon promoted to full professor. In 1979 the university bestowed upon him the title of C.F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor in Agriculture. He became professor emeritus in 1997. Willham was a moving force to develop the national sire evaluation, and he worked closely with the beef industry to develop expected progeny differences (EPDs). Outside his work with the beef industry, he also contributed to dairy cattle research. He has published more than 200 articles and books. Willham belonged to several professional organizations including the American Society of Animal Science and the Beef Improvement Federation. He also received numerous honors and awards including a National Science Foundation Fellowship, the J.R. Prentice Memorial Award in Animal Breeding and Genetics from the American Society of Animal Science and more. He was named the recipient of the 2004 Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Award for his outstanding contribution to animal science. He is survived by his wife, Esther; children, Karen and Lee; and numerous other relatives.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

Middle School Drama A couple of weeks ago, our 12-yearold son, Waylon, found himself in the midst of a bit of middle school drama. Let me guess. When you read “middle school drama,” you immediately envisioned a moment from your own life. Maybe an eye roll erupted. Maybe a churn in the stomach appeared. Goodness, haven’t we all been there. The details aren’t important, but you know how it goes down. Many preteen emotions arise. Sides are chosen, and Waylon was fairly certain it was absolutely never going to end.

I promised him it would, indeed, end. Within a few days, a hot new topic of interest would arise in the school, and this issue would be a thing of the past. But, in the moment, it was absolutely draining. I wanted to tell him that he would get through middle school and that issues like this would be behind him, that people grow up, that level heads prevail and that being an adult is, oh, so much easier. But heaven knows that’s just not the truth. My husband, Craig, and I had

the discussion with him that this was just preparing him for the future. As we all know, we all encounter people in our careers, in our community — and, yes, even in the cattle industry — who just don’t align with our values, visions and views on the world. Maybe they just have a rotten attitude. Maybe they just want to stir up trouble. As much as we may try to avoid being in situations with those folks, we are going to be forced to make the best of it from time to time. Unfortunately, it is just part of being an adult.

How we choose to respond and to react to these folks will absolutely define who we are. We can serve as role models to our kids in these instances — hopefully, good role models — so our kids can be equipped to handle these situations throughout their lives, too. I’m a sucker for life quotes to help through rough patches. Here are three I’ve tried to pass along to our children. The quotes apply for middle school drama and for 40-something drama, too. 1. I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to. Great words of wisdom for a middle school student and great words of wisdom for a 40-something parent, too. It’s so tempting to want to defend our position, to explain our standpoint and to try to “win.” But with some folks, it’s just not worth the effort. There will be no winning; there will only be frustration, and it’s just not worth the time or the energy. 2. Gossip ends at a wise person’s ears. Gossip surrounds us at every angle, in every life situation. Yes, even in the cattle industry. How often is gossip all fact, no embellishment? I would say that percentage is in the single digits. We aren’t helping anyone by spreading stories that may — or most likely may not — be true. Let’s be an example to our kids by ending that gossip when it reaches our ears. 3. If you’re constantly surrounded by difficult people, don’t expect a positive life. We are influenced by the friends we keep. This applies to middle school kids, and it applies to adults. Don’t be surprised if you begin to experience a negative life when you surround yourself with negative people. Positive or negative, we often begin to act like those by whom we are surrounded. Make good choices in the company you keep, and your life will have a positive impact. Thank goodness, we parents are out of the middle school years ourselves. I definitely wouldn’t want to go back. But the lessons learned during those awkward, uncomfortable preteen years can definitely carry through adulthood. Let’s make a conscious effort to help our children learn the skills they need now to deal with the difficult folks they will no doubt encounter as adults. And maybe, just maybe, we can leave more of the middle school drama back in middle school, where it belongs. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill.
