eeder calf buyers are willing to pay a premium for quality, uniform, vaccinated, weaned groups of calves. After last fall one could add Hereford-influenced to that list of traits buyers are looking for. And it doesn’t matter what region the sale is in. Prices proved it from three Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder calf sales across the country where calves brought more than at other comparable sales in each area. Why are Hereford and Herefordcross calves selling for more than others at these sales, even outselling straight black cattle? It’s simple, especially in these market conditions; buyers just don’t want to take a chance on cattle that don’t meet their criteria of health and quality. Plus, more and more cattlemen are realizing the value of Hereford’s efficiency: Hereford-sired calves will gain more while eating less. Each sale had its own individual requirements, but for all of them, calves had to be at least 50% Hereford, vaccinated with a standard protocol and weaned for at least 30 days. The cattle were also sorted into load lots by weight and kind. Starting in Tennessee Oct. 26, at the 11th-annual Tennessee Hereford Marketing Program (THMP), 66 consignors sold 852 head of age-, source- and health-verified Hereford and

Hereford-cross calves for $35 and $57 per head more than the reported weekly average for steers and heifers respectively. Sale coordinator John Woolfolk says, “For a more direct comparison, we used an organized sale for weaned and vaccinated cattle that were primarily black. THMP steers outsold comparable pens in that sale in three out of five weight breaks, and THMP heifers outsold their counterparts in four out of five weight breaks with THMP sixweight heifers bringing more than $6 more per hundredweight (cwt.).” The calves, which were Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) and Hereford Verified eligible, sold from six states — West Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee. The demand for CHB continues to drive sales of Hereford calves, as CHB-participating feedlots were volume buyers at the sale. The Kentucky Hereford Association (KHA) hosted a sale the very next day, Oct. 27, with much the same result. This sale was only in its first year, but sellers earned premiums of more than $8 per cwt. for steers and $10 per cwt. for heifers. Those premiums were multiplied on 532 head sold at the Blue Grass Stockyards South, Stanford, Ky. Kentucky Department of Agriculture Beef Cattle Marketing Specialist Tim

Dietrich says, “It’s not that Hereford cattle in Kentucky have been inferior in quality; they just simply haven’t been marketed in large enough numbers under a standard health program to attract the big buyers that target truckload lots.” The sale drew a large crowd — 250 people were fed a steak dinner that evening at the sale facility. But just as important was that the organizers drew the kind of buyers they were hoping for. Kentucky Hereford breeder and sale coordinator Lowell Atwood says plans are in progress to make the Kentucky Certified Hereford Influenced Sale an annual event. These types of results are not limited to Hereford cattle in the Southeast. On Nov. 16 nearly 1,200 head of Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder calves sold at the first Montana Hereford Association (MHA) sponsored feeder calf sale at Three Forks. The calves sold at the MHA sale brought as much as $6 per cwt. more than the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) average in Montana that week for that weight group. The Hereford and Herefordinfluenced steer calves exceeded the USDA compiled Montana average market report in six of seven weight breaks. Heifer calves matched or exceeded the USDA compiled Montana average market report in four of six weight breaks. “The premise for our sale was to demonstrate that Hereford calves of good quality and in volume lots would sell equal to or even better than their (straight) black counterparts,” says Jerry Gereghty, MHA board member and sale organizer. “I think the underlying theme of our sale has been met and even exceeded.” Buyers turned out at the Headwaters Livestock Auction barn to buy the calves, of which about 65% were ageand source-verified. The age- and source-verified calves earned the largest premiums, of up to $25 per head. The MHA plans to make the sale an annual event, and organizers are considering hosting a second sale in Miles City. The bottom line is, if you’re looking for a way to earn premium prices for your calves at marketing time, one option is clear: breed your black cows to a Hereford bull, capitalize on the advantages of crossbreeding and get a bigger check on sale day.

Influencing the Industry Hereford genetics continue to bring profitability to the commercial producer. The value of Hereford crossbreeding continues to be discussed around the industry, for good reason. Producers are pulling out all stops on those things that can add dollars and drive down cost. Uncertainty in the political landscape of the nation has undoubtedly threatened and ultimately stymied small business while banks are clinching cash, preventing entrepreneurs from doing what they do best and that’s grow business.

Consequently, the nation’s job losses have contributed to slowed beef demand, and this, along with high inputs, has contributed to a reduction in the nation’s cow herd and strained profitability in the beef industry. Many of the packers have gone to a 36-hour workweek, processing only five days compared to six days a week when beef demand was at its peak. Consumers are under a cash crunch and many have curbed their

spending, taking on a “save-for-arainy-day-fund mentality.” Our grandparents’ generation that survived “the Great Depression” preached the “live-within-your-means lifestyle.” That generation tended to accumulate a great deal of wealth through hard work and good money management. There were a lot of ranches paid for under that strategy, so some of this may prove to be beneficial in the end.

But how do we become more efficient as an industry so that we can survive and thrive in this type of economic environment? The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors has been contemplating that question for some time. As a breed, what does Hereford deliver to the commercial sector that can keep commercial customers in business? What can the breed do to improve the genetic base even further? For several years now, the AHA Board and staff have worked diligently to demonstrate the value of the Hereford breed in effecting profitability in the commercial beef industry through the simple science of heterosis. Projects such as the Harris Ranch/Lacey Livestock project in California and the Circle A heterosis project in Missouri are two high profile real-world field trials that have demonstrated what smart crossbreeding of two maternal breeds can bring to the industry table in the form of higher pregnancy rates that drive more efficiency. Industry thought leaders and scientists from across the country are beginning to stress to producers the necessary and economically relevant use of breeds in crossbreeding systems to assure profitability on the ranch. Jack Whittier, Colorado State University beef cattle specialist, recently reminded producers at the 21st annual Range Beef Cow Symposium in Casper, Wyo., that fertility and pregnancy rates are the paycheck that lays the foundation for profitability for cow-calf producers. Whittier made comparisons to 40 years ago and confirmed that, just like back then, nutrition, genetics and management each play a role in pregnancy and calving rates with nutrition being the biggest cost factor in the equation. To reduce costs and assure higher and more profitable pregnancy levels, he encouraged the use of crossbreeding and stressed that, “Not incorporating breed complementarity and heterosis is not an option.” Choice of genetics and proper breed use, for all intent and purpose, are probably the cheapest things a cowcalf producer can do to assure higher levels of fertility, pregnancy rates, calving rates and calf survivability.

The AHA breed improvement committee is currently working on strategies that will continue to improve the Hereford breed to make it even more invaluable to the commercial cow-calf producer. Below is a list of strategies that were mentioned at the most recent AHA membership meeting in Kansas City last October:

• Establish an expected progeny

difference (EPD) for heifer calving rate that will begin to identify those sires whose daughters breed quickly and calve out a higher percentage of the time on their first try.

• Establish an EPD for cow longevity that will begin to identify those sires whose daughters last longer

in the herd with a timely rebreed each year.

• Work with genetic companies or

universities to conduct research in the area of feed efficiency in an effort to identify genetic tools that might find genetic differences in feed conversion within the Hereford breed.

The AHA has directed its focus on those objectives that have the most impact on the cow-calf operator’s bottom line. These traits are lowly heritable and hard to measure; however, making slight improvements will benefit you, the producer, even more when you use Hereford genetics in your crossbreeding plans. HW

Member service committee formed American Hereford Association (AHA) President Bob Harrell formed a new committee during the AHA Board meeting last fall. Paul “Butch” Funk was named chairman of the committee that will have a very diverse responsibility for the organization. A few of those responsibilities will be:

• Review and continually evaluate improvements in the Association’s online registry

• Review and develop strategies with private company software providers that might

system. make good partners in managing on-farm data and assisting with the transfer of data to and from the Association and breeders.

• Find ways to reduce costly postage and move more breeders to electronic information and storage.

• Maintain and monitor acceptable turn-around time and accuracy of record keeping. • Address other service issues that affect the membership. For comments or ideas, contact AHA Director Butch Funk at 254-289-7657. HW

Olsen NRSP Test Results Announced I’m excited to include in this column the final report on the 2008-born calves at Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb. As most of you know, the Olsen Ranch has been instrumental in working with the American Hereford Association (AHA), along with several other commercial ranches, to test young sires as part of the National Reference Sire Program (NSRP). This program was developed to confirm the value of Hereford genetics in the commercial industry while proving younger sires. The 2008-born calves performed exceptionally well at Olsen’s. Below you will find the

performance of the progeny from nine young sires compared to two reference sires. A reference sire is one that has actually been through the sire test program previously. In addition, EF Beef Schu-Lar S604009K G824 ET was used at both Stahly Ranch and Olsen’s to provide some linkage between the two test herds. The steers were harvested in mid-November and the entire group graded more than 90% Choice. This group had one less implant at the end of the feeding period versus other years. So, we might have seen a slight increase in grade.

The cattle were on feed for 20 fewer days than the previous year and the live weight was about 40 lb. less. If you remember, the report on the Stahly data (see November 2009 issue, Page 6) was that we had more than 70% Choice cattle in the 2008-born calves. All data on the Olsen cattle, except the harvest data, will be included in the new genetic analysis, and the spring 2010 expected progeny differences (EPDs) will be reflective. The harvest data will be part of the fall 2010 run. This is due to the harvest time of the Olsen steers. Please remember that we are beginning to take nominations for the

2010 National Reference Sire Program. You can find that nomination form below, or you can contact me at 816-842-3757 or jward@hereford.org. Circle A Ranch, Iberia, Mo., is testing 23 natural service sires in its fall commercial cow herd. The bulls were delivered in November and are working in single-sire pastures. I personally would like to thank everyone who participates in these programs, which have been very influential in the increased demand for Hereford genetics in the commercial industry. HW

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

• Hereford steers in Canada won

the best three shipping steers over all breeds. The Canadian Hereford Breeders’ Secretary, R.J. Mackie, reported that Herefords excelled at the winter fair in Guelph, Ontario. In a tough 2-year-old class for grades and crossbreds, a Hereford took top honors.

• A.F. Mammen, a Hereford breeder

and feeder from McClelland, Iowa, topped the Omaha cattle market Dec. 14, 1910, with a load of yearling Herefords. They averaged 933 lb. and sold for $7.15.

• On Jan. 1, 1911, Prof. R.J. Kinzer

succeeded C.R. Thomas, who retired as American Hereford Cattle Breeders’ Association secretary. — Angie Stump Denton, editor

Hereford on the Beach Head chef Jason Pelham puts Hereford beef on the table for Jersey shore tourists.

The Windrift Hotel is a beach-front resort where tourists can relax in luxury and enjoy delicious Certified Hereford Beef.

by Sara Gugelmeyer

A

s a young boy, Jason Pelham loved watching the Swedish Chef on the Muppets, and he says he just always knew he wanted to be a chef. Now he’s the head chef at the Windrift Hotel, Avalon, N.J., where the only beef product he serves is Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®). For his commitment to Hereford beef, Jason Pelham was honored with the CHB Distinguished Chef Award. Pelham started his culinary career after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in New York City

16 Hereford World / January 2010

in 1999. Afterward, he gained valuable experience at several hotel restaurants and even a casino before accepting his current position at the Windrift Hotel in May of this year. As head chef Pelham oversees more than 25 kitchen staff members and prepares food to be served in five

dining locations throughout the hotel. Although only 15% of the ocean-front tourist hotel’s menu is beef, 100% of the beef served is CHB product. During peak summer season, between 1,500 and 2,000 meals a day are prepared under Pelham’s supervision. Pelham has only been at the hotel for less than a year, but hotel director Rick Wolf says Jason caught on quickly. “He only had four days of getting acclimated before we opened for the season. He was new, and he had to get familiar with the staff and the kitchen and the whole hotel while working, and he was able to do it in only a couple of weeks.” One of the first changes Pelham made as head chef at the Windrift was switching from Angus to Hereford beef. It was a change he had made with success at his previous job. His interest in Hereford beef was piqued because his family had a small hobby farm with

CHB Distinguished Chefs Program

Hereford cows when he was young. After some research, he discovered the features of CHB products. “Initially it was because of the price of burgers,” Jason says. “I found in an average month I save around 18% by using Hereford beef, just on one menu item.” He decided to try other CHB cuts. “I prepared each of the menu items with like cuts from both breeds of cattle and used our patrons and restaurant staff for blind tastings,” Jason says. “100% of the time, Hereford came out on top. Through these tastings, I have found that Hereford actually tastes more robust, like beef should taste, contrary to Angus, which delivers a more watered-down flavor.” The better value and taste convinced Jason. “I started using other cuts on the summer menu. Not only did I like the savings, I also found the quality of the beef in this program to be much higher.” HW

Management of a toothbrush, the ink can be worked into a fresh tattoo easily. A good working chute is also critical to a legible tattoo. The chute should restrain the animal from making quick head movements. “The only stress on the animal during the tattooing process comes from poor restraint,” Twig says. “For a readable tattoo to happen, the animal must hold still and be kept from moving its head.”

steps. Here are some steps that can be taken to help ensure a legible tattoo.

Proper equipment

roper identification at birth and legible tattoos are essential to maintaining accurate parentage and production records of Hereford cattle. A readable tattoo is also a requirement for registering an animal with the American Hereford Association (AHA). Hereford breeders were the first to adopt the ear tattoo as a requirement for registry. Tattooing can be done any time before registering, although it’s best done when the animals

are young. Twig Marston, director of the Northeast Extension and Research Center and professor of ruminant nutrition for the University of Nebraska, recommends tattooing calves before 3 months of age. “The younger you tattoo a calf, the more legible the tattoo will be,” says Twig. “The tattoo will grow as the calf gets older, making it easier to read.” Twig says successful tattooing is a result of proper technique and the completion of a series of

Success starts with having the necessary tattooing equipment. Before beginning, a breeder should have a complete set of number and letter characters, if used. Sets of tattoo characters have one of each number (0-9) or letter (A-Z), so you may have to purchase more than one set. Tattoo equipment can be purchased from a livestock supply dealer. Remember that a registered tattoo can have a maximum of eight characters (digits and/or letters) applied in a straight line. There are a variety of different types of tattoo pliers, which use removable digits, on the market. Some pliers have revolving heads and will hold two different tattoos at once. You’ll need a rag or a sponge and some rubbing alcohol to clean out the ear before you apply the tattoo. Tattoo ink, green or black, is critical in getting a readable and permanent tattoo.

18 Hereford World / January 2010

Once you have the calf in the working chute, check your records and establish the tattoo that will identify the calf. Place the corresponding digits in your pliers. Twig suggests checking the tattoo on something like a piece of cardboard or an old feed sack. Otherwise, you run the risk of incorrectly tattooing the calf. Check to make sure that all of your digits make an even perforation. One common mistake breeders make is not throwing away dull, broken or hair-matted characters. Such digits do not allow for deep penetration into the ear tissue. Cleaning the ear and ridding it of all wax and dirt is the next step. Twig says the key to a good tattoo is a clean ear. “To really do a good job, you need to clean out that ear with alcohol,” Twig stresses. “You can’t get a tattoo to take with all the wax and dirt that is normally in the ear.” The ear should be dry before moving on to the next step — applying ink. AHA recommends tattooing the animal in the upper two-thirds of the lobe, reserving the lower third of the right ear lobe for the Bangs tattoo. Tattoos in either ear can’t exceed eight characters in length. The Association also strongly advises that breeders place the tattoo in both ears to enhance the chances that a complete tattoo identity can be established. “Make sure that the tattoo is stamped in the center of the ear, close to the head,” says John Meents, AHA upper Midwest field representative. “Not the tip or the end of the ear.”

Tattoos should be placed in the upper two-thirds of the lobe and where the skin is lightest in color and free from hair. Be sure to avoid ribs or cords in the ear. www.hereford.org


Tattoos should be placed where the skin is lightest in color and free from hair. Be sure to avoid ribs or cords in the ear, as placing the tattoo in one of these ribs means a poor tattoo as well as an excessive flow of blood. Before tattooing the animal, rub the ink in with a toothbrush or your thumb. By doing this, the ink will more likely be carried into the new tattoo. When ready to proceed, place the ear between the jaws of the pliers. It’s important when clamping the pliers to use the right amount of pressure. “Close the jaws quickly and firmly and release quickly to avoid tearing the ear,” says Twig. “Use enough pressure that it pierces the skin, but don’t go so deeply that it bleeds profusely.” The only way to stop an ear from bleeding after the use of too much pressure is to reapply ink, Twig points out. Put on more ink and use that toothbrush to get the ink down in those perforations. The ink helps the blood to coagulate. Make sure that the ink is worked thoroughly into the tattoo to ensure a legible and permanent tattoo mark. When the tattooing process is finished, clean the characters to remove all hair, dirt and blood. This is also the time when you should throw away and get replacements for the ones that are dull.

When to tattoo There are advantages and disadvantages to tattooing at birth or the alternative, waiting to tattoo calves as a group. Max Stotz, Star Lake Cattle Ranch, Skiatook, Okla., has tried both, but prefers to tattoo at birth. “We find we have less human errors and don’t miss calves if we tattoo at birth,” says Max. “You must get that tattoo close to the inner ear and make sure it is not too far out or on the ribs.” Bob and Jami Goble, Ridgeview Farms, Alto, Mich., prefer to tattoo calves at weaning in the fall. “We feel since the calves are older the tattoo looks better and continues to look good,” says Jami. “Not to mention

we do not turn green everyday for three months while we are calving, and mother cows are not breathing down our backs.”

Imperfect tattoos The Association recommends checking all tattoos at weaning or any time an animal is in the chute. Tattoos are not always perfect. Two frequent causes of imperfect tattoos are poor technique and, for breeders calving during the cold months of January and February, frozen ears. Gobles have been able to minimize the number of frozen ears through management practices. “We bring cows down off the hill when we can see they are getting close to calving, although some calves still hit the ground out in the elements. The sale ring in our barn is heated. The cow and calf can be placed in the barn till the calf warms up, or if their ears are a little cold, we place neck warmers on their ears,” Bob says. Jami says they use neck warmers that are made for people. “We lay their ears flat to their neck by slipping a neck warmer over their face. The heat from their neck warms their ears. The cow can still lick her calf but the ears warm up quickly,” she says. Other suggestions for managing frozen ears include putting alcohol on cold ears to revive circulation or using duct tape to hold the ears next to the head. Both practices work well during long stretches of cold weather in the middle of calving season.

Establishing a herd ID system

EID on the farm In 2008 the AHA implemented an electronic tagging system for all national shows, which has made cattle processing more efficient. In addition, a number of producers use electronic identification (EID) tags to manage their entire cow herds. Star Lake Cattle Ranch started using EID five years ago. “In my personal opinion, EID provides the traceability and source verification that our industry must have to keep open key foreign markets,” says Max Stotz, Star Lake Cattle Ranch. Utilizing EID technology has provided its share of headaches in the form of information flow between software and glitches at the chute. “We’ve had to run calves back through the chute when their weights were not captured by the system,” Max says. “In our current situation, we don’t see a huge advantage, but investing in a laptop for chuteside use would sure help.” Bob and Jami Goble of Ridgeview Farm, Alto, Mich., began using the EID program long before it was implemented by the AHA. “We use the system as a time saver at the chute. All the cattle are in our computer system by ear tag, tattoo, name and EID,” Jami says. “If a cow loses her tag or comes without a tattoo, we can scan her EID and not only know who she is but see her breeding info, calving info, as well as vaccinations and drugs she has been given. We have a lot less “paper” work at the chutes; it is all on the laptop.” Additional benefits come when producers EID cattle before shipping them to a feedlot. Danny Herrmann, Ford County Feed Yard Inc., Ford, Kan., says using EID tags as a service to producers.“There certainly are opportunities with EID, it just takes coordination and communication,” he explains. “Producers that put the tags in on the farm are able to connect information we collect back to what they have on an animal.”

Application site for EID tags must be free of foreign debris prior to placement. According to Allflex, the EID tag should be placed in the middle of the ear between the two cartilage ribs close to the head. The female portion of the tag should be on the inside of the ear with EID tag application. Note that this is a thicker part of the ear. Application may be more difficult than when applying a visual tag. When tagging try to avoid placing the tag within a tattoo.

Utilizing EID tags on the farm or ranch allows breeders to electronically capture weights and input health and management practices and tie it to an animal ID number.

This data may include weights or animal health information. Danny sees even greater advantages for producers using EID tags at slaughter. “I’d say the carcass data is of the greatest value to a producer,” says Danny. “Producers just need to utilize the technology.” HW

Before tattooing, an effective and well-planned herd identification system must be established. This system should benefit the producer and make herd recordkeeping easier. Depending on a breeder’s needs, a tattoo can reflect several different things. The tattoo can refer to the year the calf was born or the offspring’s parents or relate a number in a sequence as to when the calf was born. The Gobles say the system they use is simple. “The first number

in the tag is the month they were born; the remaining numbers are the order they were born in,” Jami says. “If a calf is the 15th calf born in February, its tag number is 215 followed by the current letter year. If a calf is co-owned, the letter year comes first but still follows in the same numbering order.” The international letter code system, where a letter represents the year a calf was born, has become popular worldwide. W is the letter producers are using to represent 2009. The letter for 2008 was U and calves born in 2010 will be Xs. With

this system the letters I, O, V and Q are not used. Guy Colyer, Colyer Herefords and Angus, Bruneau, Idaho, says the key to any good system is to avoid duplication. “We use a five digit number for herd ID and a four digit tattoo. For example, our first calf born in 2009 has a herd ID of 09001 and tattoo 9001.” Breeders need to develop a tattoo system that fits their needs, depending on how important the sire, dam, or the relationship of age between calves is to them.

ud is the enemy of good health. Wet seasons create stress for livestock: a wet hair coat loses its insulating quality and cattle suffer more stress in wet cold weather than in dry cold weather. Under dry conditions, the hair is fluffy and has tiny air spaces between each hair, holding a layer of warmer air next to the body. A good clean hair coat can keep cattle warm

even when temperatures drop to zero and below. When the hair becomes wet, however, it lies down flatter and loses this insulating layer of air. If cattle must lie in mud, the hair becomes muddy and matted and also loses its insulating quality. Cattle chill more readily, and this stress can lead to illness; stress inhibits the immune system and makes cattle more vulnerable to

Mud also harbors bacteria and other pathogens, especially from manure, which can affect cattle health — especially in baby calves. A mix of mud and manure in a calving lot can lead to dirty udders. When the newborn calf suckles, he ingests bacteria along with the colostrum. It’s a race between the antibodies from colostrum and the pathogens, and if he nuzzles a dirty udder (or makes a few false tries on the cow’s dirty flank or brisket before he finds a teat) the pathogens win. Some of the bacteria that can cause deadly scours in newborns or toxic gut infections in older calves are present in the soil wherever there have been cattle feces, and wet conditions make it much easier for calves to ingest these pathogens. Dry ground is always a safer environment for calves than mud; they are less apt to pick up scour-causing bacteria or the toxin-forming bacteria that cause acute and often fatal intestinal infections. Some clostridial infections (such as C. perfringens, which causes various types of “enterotoxemia”) and E. coli infections are much more prevalent in muddy conditions than in dry or frozen ground. Calves nibbling mud or drinking from mud puddles are always at risk for digestive tract infections. Calves born on wet, muddy ground are also more vulnerable to naval ill or joint ill. If the umbilical stump comes into contact with contaminated ground or bedding before it dries and seals off, it offers an open doorway for pathogenic bacteria. A calf born in the mud may need antibiotics as well as intensive disinfecting of the navel stump (applying iodine or some other good disinfectant several times) until the stump is completely dry. Infection may localize at the navel or may enter the bloodstream and cause septicemia. In the latter instance, the bacteria attack various organs and create a potentially fatal infection or may localize in certain areas such as the joints, to permanently cripple the calf. Protozoan pathogens are also lurking in mud wherever there have been cattle. Coccidia and cryptosporidia are spread via manure. Coccidiosis and cryptosporidiosis infections in calves are always more common in wet conditions. Whenever

cattle are concentrated in small areas, coming into contact with manure, they are more vulnerable to massive infection with these protozoa — especially calves, because they have not yet developed any immunity or resistance and because they often nibble dirt or mud or pick up the pathogens when nursing a dirty udder. If cattle must lie on contaminated ground, such as mud mixed with manure, the hair coat becomes dirty also, and calves pick up the pathogens when licking and grooming themselves. One of the things that can lead to increased incidence of illness in calves is the use of big bale feeders in wet weather — in calving lots or pens or pastures where there are cow-calf pairs. If footing around feeders gets churned to mud, there is more chance of the cows having dirty legs and udders. If conditions are muddy, bale feeders should be moved regularly to cleaner, drier ground. If this is impossible, clean material such as straw should be put around feeders regularly to keep footing clean and dry. Increased incidence of scours has been noted on a number of farms and ranches after they began using big bale feeders, especially if the cows’ udders must be dragged through deep mud when the cows are using the feeders.

Problems for all cattle Other bacteria that lurk in mud include the pathogens that cause foot rot in cattle. Foot rot is an infectious condition that causes inflammation in the foot, resulting in severe lameness. The swelling and lameness develop very suddenly. One day the animal is fine and the next day the foot is so sore the animal may not put any weight on it. There are several bacteria that can cause foot rot, but the most common culprit is Fusobacterium necrophorum. Cattle are apt to pick up the infection if there is a break in the skin. Wet areas, where cattle must walk through mud or bogs or stand in mud in a pen, are the most likely places to pick it up. Foot rot can occur year round, but prevalence is always higher during wet seasons or in wet, muddy pastures. The bacteria persist in wet areas around springs, swamps or wet ground. Also, the skin of the feet becomes softer and more tender when wet and more easily nicked and scraped, so foot rot is very common in wet weather or in situations when cattle walk through mud. www.hereford.org


A good prevention measure in pens is the creation of mounds or built-up humps of soil or bedding where cattle can be on dry ground. Lameness may hinder ability to travel to feed and water or reduce the amount of time the animal spends grazing. The animal may spend most of its time lying down and lose weight. The swelling in the foot usually breaks open, often between the toes or the heel, and discharges pus after a few days. This drainage will further contaminate the pen or pasture, putting other animals at risk for foot rot, and calves at risk for navel ill (since the same bacteria is often involved in navel infection). Many cases of foot rot will eventually clear up on their own without treatment, but the animal will be lame longer and may spread the bacteria around the pen or pasture for the whole time the foot is swollen and discharging. It’s always better to treat the problem rather than wait to see if it will get better. If you can clear it up quickly, there will be less contamination and much less risk of permanent damage to the foot. If neglected, the infection may eventually get into the joint, causing infectious arthritis.

Minimize mud problems Anything you can do to minimize mud and dirty conditions in cattle lots and pastures can help decrease the incidence of problems. During calving season, the calving cows should be moved periodically to clean, dry ground, or extra bedding should be used in the calving lot (with more put in as needed) to cover the mud and keep the cows from becoming wet and dirty. Using your driest pastures and lots (well sodded instead of churned to mud or higher, drier areas with better drainage) will help prevent a lot of wet weather problems. Incidence of foot rot can be minimized if pens are clean and dry, and free of sharp stones or frozen mud (which create rough ground that may cause hoof injury). Covering frozen ground or deep mud with straw can be helpful in preventing foot rot. Thoroughly cleaning pens after the cattle are removed and liberally sprinkling lime over the pen www.hereford.org

surface can often avoid infections in feedlots. Leaving a pen vacant for at least a week after liming will help control foot rot bacteria. Maximizing drainage in pens is essential to good cattle management and will also help prevent constant contact with manure-laden mud. A good prevention measure in pens is the creation of mounds or built-up humps of soil or bedding where cattle can be on dry ground. Concrete slabs by feed bunks or feeders can also give cattle a dry place to stand, especially if these are kept cleaned off periodically. The use of concrete around watering areas and feed bunks where animals congregate can be very helpful, minimizing contact with mud. HW

After the bacteria gain entrance to the foot, inflammation and swelling start quickly. Usually the swelling is around the coronary band above the hoof, between the toes or at the heel, depending on the site of entry. The swelling may spread toes on the affected foot apart. The enlargement may include the area above the hoof, extending upward past the fetlock joint in some cases. In severe cases the animal will have a fever (which may cause temporary infertility in a bull).

The use of big bale feeders in wet weather can increase incidence of calf sickness because the area around the bale becomes heavily trodden and soiled, and if the mud is deep enough can contaminate the cows’ udders. Producers who use big bale feeders should move the feeders regularly and put straw around the feeder to keep the footing clean and dry.

The Far-Reaching Effects cattle, Hess says the potential effects on offspring, due to nutritional insults to the dam, can include enlargement of the heart, hypertension (as early as 8 months of age), insulin resistance and hampered ability to produce insulin. Evidence suggests kidney development may be affected as well as basic protein synthesis essential to normal skeletal and muscular development.

What’s happening during early gestation?

by Troy Smith

W

hen cow herd managers ponder nutrition programs, a primary concern is the fueling of optimum reproduction. Cow-savvy managers know that quantity and quality of feed sources influence the cow’s ability to breed in timely fashion, and deliver a healthy, vigorous calf. Producing that annual coupon is really tough when cow nutrition isn’t up to snuff. And producers are often reminded of how important it is to provide adequate nutrition to cows during the third trimester of pregnancy. Most of an unborn calf’s growth occurs during that

latter part of gestation, with about 75% of growth occurring during the last two months. The cow’s nutritional status during those later months of pregnancy also influences how quickly a cow’s reproductive system recovers postpartum and resumes normal estrous activity. It’s hard to get a cow ready to breed if she was in sorry shape at the time of calving. Consequently, much research and plenty of producers’ efforts have concentrated on the cow’s dietary needs during late gestation. The first half of gestation may have seemed less important — at least when you consider her fetus’ limited nutrient requirements for growth and development. However, evidence suggests there is a lot going on at the beginning, as well as later in the pregnancy — things that can affect producer profitability — as a result of fetal or developmental programming.

What is fetal programming?

Reproductive physiologist Rick Funston says that along with its effect on steer performance and carcass characteristics, dam nutrition appears to have a fetal programming effect on heifer fertility.

22 Hereford World / January 2010

The Center for the Study of Fetal Programming was established at the University of Wyoming in 2002 to investigate the special effects maternal stresses may have on offspring later in life. Scientists from multiple institutions and disciplines are associated with the Center, including medical doctors looking at how fetal programming affects the health and well-being of humans.

In fact, the concept grew out of human health studies. David Barker, at Southampton University in England, related maternal stresses to infant weight and physical characteristics at birth and to eventual health status. It was Barker who coined the term “fetal programming.” Prompting the human studies were the eventual health problems occurring among offspring born to undernourished women in Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II. The women delivered apparently normal, healthy babies that later developed hypertension, diabetes and other diseases at much higher rates than the remainder of the population. “The Center’s primary focus is to discover how maternal insults during gestation impact offspring later in life. These impacts can be due to hormonal and environmental stresses as well as nutrition,” says University of Wyoming ruminant nutritionist Bret Hess. Involved with studies of fetal programming in sheep and

Kimberly Vonnahme

North Dakota State University (NDSU) reproductive physiologist Kimberly Vonnahme says a key to fetal programming is development of the placenta. Development of the placenta and a vascular system between it and the fetus begins early in gestation. In cows, she says, vascularity of the caruncles (sites of attachment between placenta and uterine wall) begins at Day 90 of gestation, with a marked increase in both blood flow and vascular density by Day 120. “The establishment of the vascular architecture is essential if the maternal side is to support the exponentially growing fetus during the last trimester of gestation,” Vonnahme explains. “Any detrimental effects of maternal nutrition during this critical establishment of the maternal-fetal vascular systems would impact the ability of the fetus to acquire the proper amount of nutrients and oxygen.” Plus, organs of the fetus are developing simultaneously with the placenta, including the heart, pancreas, liver, lungs, adrenals, thyroid, spleen, brain, thymus and kidneys. By Day 45 of the pregnancy, testicles of male calves are being developed, and ovaries of female calves begin development at 50 to 60 days. The rates at which different organs develop vary, but Vonnahme says each is susceptible to stresses, including inadequate nutrition of the dam, during early gestation. Vonnahme says maternal nutritional status is a factor in the programming of nutrient partitioning in the fetus. In other words, some fetal tissues have priority when receiving

of Fetal Programming nutrients. Skeletal muscle has a lower priority compared to the brain and heart, so it is particularly vulnerable to nutrient deficiency.

What does it mean to performance? Bret Hess says a collaborative study between the University of Wyoming and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Ft. Keogh Livestock and Range Laboratory (Montana) provided evidence of the real-world effects of fetal programming. The study involved spring-born steer calves whose mothers had grazed native range during mid-gestation, compared with steers out of cows that grazed improved pastures. Neither group of cows received supplemental protein. “This would be comparable to a common ranch scenario, with cows grazing late-summer or fall range consisting of forage that has gone through reproductive stages and is of lower quality,” Hess says, noting that cows on improved pasture would consume forage of higher quality. All calves were backgrounded and entered the finishing yard at comparable weights. After 120 days on feed, the steers whose mothers ran on native range exhibited lower gains, produced lighter carcasses, lower backfat and lower marbling scores. Studies also suggest fetal programming affects the future reproductive performance of heifer calves kept as herd replacements. It appears that the groundwork for a replacement heifer’s success is laid even before she is born as a result of her dam’s nutrition during pregnancy. While studying the impact of protein supplementation during winter grazing, University of Nebraska researchers observed how dietary protein may have less effect on mature cow reproductive performance than previously believed. However, according to reproductive physiologist Rick Funston, the research suggests the cow’s dietary protein probably has a big effect on her calf. Data was collected on three consecutive calf crops born to cows that, prior to calving season, grazed winter range and received protein supplement. That was compared with data from calves born to cows that grazed winter range but received no supplement. The researchers also looked at data from cows wintered on corn stalks with and without supplemental protein. The resulting evidence suggests adding no supplemental protein to the dam’s diet can result in a higher incidence of sickness among calves and lower weaning weights. The calves are likely to exhibit lighter finished weights too, and the potential for achieving carcass quality grades of Choice or better is diminished. www.hereford.org

Bret Hess says a collaborative study between the University of Wyoming and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Ft. Keogh Livestock and Range Laboratory (Montana) provided evidence of the real-world effects of fetal programming. Steers whose mothers grazed on lower quality pasture exhibited lower gains, produced lighter carcasses, lower backfat and lower marbling scores.

Funston says the research also showed how cow nutrition during gestation affects the heifer calves developed as herd replacements.

Supplemented cows produced daughters that exhibited higher pregnancy rates. In addition, more of those retained heifers delivered their

first calves early in the calving season. More study is needed, but along with its effect on steer performance and carcass characteristics, dam nutrition appears to have a fetal programming effect on heifer fertility. “There is already enough evidence to make producers rethink nutrition management strategies that focus only on the cow,” Funston states. “The research indicates our management also influences the profitability of the calf she’s carrying.” HW

Management

Managing for Treatment Success W

hile preventing disease in the cattle herd should be the top priority, it is not always possible to avoid all illness. If an animal does get sick, there are steps that can be taken to improve treatment success. The primary focus should be on making sure the animal gets well with the first treatment because the likelihood of changing disease outcome with a second or third treatment is low. For this reason, additional attention, best management practices and most efficacious products should be focused on the initial treatment.

“Maximizing success with the first treatment helps to minimize treatment cost and reduce the likelihood of a chronic animal,” says Robin Falkner, DVM, Pfizer Animal Health veterinarian from Christiana, Tenn. “You cannot realistically avoid a poor economic outcome when two or more treatments are required. Animals that don’t respond to the first treatment have a high probability of becoming a dead or chronic, and most of them have permanent lung damage that compromises future performance.”

Effective treatment: Use of the most effective means of treatment available will greatly decrease the likelihood of treatment failure. The difference in cost between the least efficacious and the most efficacious product is not large enough to justify the risk of treatment failure and the additional costs (additional treatment cost and reduced performance) associated with it. The high cost of treatment failure more than justifies the small difference in the cost of treatment options.

According to a recent study, animals that required retreating (two or more treatments) for bovine respiratory disease (BRD) returned $184 per head less than those animals that required only one treatment for BRD, demonstrating the importance of managing to improve first-treatment success. Falkner shared these tips on how producers can improve first-treatment success rates: Timely identification: Identifying a sick animal immediately is vital to the success of any treatment plan.

needs to be conducive to healing and recovery. The hospital pen should provide the cleanest and driest conditions available, while offering plenty of space for the animal to heal.

Identifying and treating • People: sick animals is an art. It is also

a unique skill. Employees must be trained to effectively identify and treat a sick animal. Improper identification of sick animals can lead to the filling of a hospital pen with cattle that do not need to be treated, thus exposing those cattle to the pathogens that are causing sickness. The training and managing of employees are equally important and should not be neglected. The driving focus for any cattle producer should be on reducing the number of animals that become sick through the use of sound prevention and control programs. Falkner says this reduction starts with the type of animal purchased, the techniques used for handling the cattle, and the arrival health program the cattle receive. Once animals are sick, Falkner emphasizes, proper identification, treatment and handling are integral to a successful first-treatment program. By focusing on first-treatment success, one can lower the number of sick animals in a herd and the overall economic cost of disease. HW

Extreme Makeover:

Hereford Edition AHA’s Web site, Hereford.org, gets a major facelift. by Sara Gugelmeyer

W

e live in a Web age: a time when youngsters don’t remember life without the Internet and even old-timers are breaking down and learning the advantages of the technology. In 2008 more than 70% of U.S. households had Internet access according to a study by World Development Indicators, and no doubt, that number has grown exponentially since. For this reason, a strong Web presence is a must for the American Hereford Association (AHA) and its affiliates. In early December, the AHA launched a new Hereford.org. AHA has had a Web site for many years, but because of evolving Web technologies and

32 Hereford World / January 2010

more and more content, it was overdue for an update. The AHA staff and Board made the decision to do a redesign because a comprehensive Web site makes AHA information available to members and those interested in Hereford 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. “The primary goal for the redesign was to reduce clutter, improve layout and design, and increase overall usability,” says Angie Stump Denton, AHA director of communications. “We wanted it to be simple, accessible and customizable.” Some of the problems with the old site were the difficulty for the user to find information and the challenging process for

AHA staff to update the site. Denton says those issues were of major concern when they were discussing the site redesign. “We wanted cutting-edge functionality and member-driven customization — all of which further the core strategies of the AHA,” she says.

One step at a time But Web redesigns don’t just happen on a whim; it took months of discussion, planning and programming to make the redesign happen. Once the decision was approved by the Board and agreed upon by the staff, a Web design company had to be chosen and commissioned to complete the project. Denton sent out information requesting bids, and the Hondo Group was ultimately picked. The Hondo Group is a fullservice communications agency, offering clients advertising, market development, digital strategy and everything in-between. Hondo’s main office is in Austin, Texas, with an additional location in Darlington, Wis., which handles agriculture-related accounts. The Hereford Web site was handled out of the Wisconsin office. The group’s agriculture experience was a plus in the

decision, along with the staff’s ability to do the open-source content management system necessary so AHA staff could manage the site after the project was complete. Denton says, the group’s feedback from past clients was good and its number and efficiency of programmers would allow the project to be accomplished in a short time. Plus, the company has a Hereford connection. “We’ve been very lucky to have our lead contact be Kim Jones, whose family is in the Hereford business,” Denton says. “She understands our audience and has been very helpful.” Jones’ husband grew up in the Hereford business, and now her family operates a Hereford cow-calf operation called Wildcat Cattle Co. Their five children are involved with the cattle as well, with the three eldest already participating in National Junior Hereford Association shows and activities. Not only did that give Jones a personal interest in the project, but she used her knowledge of the industry when developing the site. Once Hondo got the job, site maps had to be developed, content had to be generated and then everything had to be programmed for the Web. www.hereford.org


“The first step was to determine what the users were going to be most interested in and what was going to be most useful for them,” Jones says. “The site was developed around two factors: density and usability. Because there was so much information on the original Web site, it was critical that we allow the site to be as user-friendly as possible and make every page available with two clicks from home.” Analyzing the data and information that were already on the original site and determining a way to organize it all so that it could be easily navigated are probably the most important parts, Jones says. “Because you want users to be able to easily interact with the information we’re providing.” Hondo worked tirelessly on the site because of the short time frame in which to complete the project. AHA accepted the bid and work began in August 2009, and the site was launched in December, which Jones says is much less time than would usually be allotted for such a big project. “Typically a site of this magnitude would take a year.” Twelve Hondo employees, including Jones, worked on the site during the five-month period. Six were full-time programmers. Jones is quick to point out that this project was truly a team effort between her staff and the AHA. “Typically, this takes a lot longer, and it was a big advantage to have a dedicated group at the Association to help us make this possible,” she says.

Site features The end result is exactly what staff and Board members hoped for and something that members and non-members alike can appreciate. The AHA focuses on four distinct audiences and enduse opportunities:

• Seedstock producers • Commercial breeders • Juniors • Consumers interested in

National Junior Hereford Association information is available for junior members and prospective members, as well as details on the Junior National Hereford Expo, Program for Reaching Individuals Determined to Excel (PRIDE) Convention and other activities. Plus, they can read The Advantage newsletter and download scholarship applications and contest forms. The junior area also features a special section just for junior advisors. The Certified Hereford Beef Web site is easily accessible by link from the main site, and information on CHB-related programs like Hereford Verified can easily be perused as well. Other features include the Hereford Marketplace, a one-stop site for Hereford genetics with access to data-driven, portable downloadable files (PDF) and flip-style production sale catalogs as well as private-treaty offerings, semen catalogs, and listings for feeder cattle and commercial females. The site will also post results of Hereford sales. Other new aspects are a searchable events page, an educational resource page and a dynamic search function that searches Hereford.org and related sites. The Hereford World and other AHA-produced media are easily accessible. Current and back issues of The Whiteface and Hereford eNews are available, and the Hereford World can be read in a new flip-format. Users can also search for articles from back issues of the Hereford World. In its entirety, says Denton, “It’s a streamlined, modern site that offers both educational and dayto-day functional aspects for both current members and prospective members.

Economy Still Top of Mind

After a roller-coaster year, 2010 will hinge on consumer spending. by Kindra Gordon

F

or many people, 2009 won’t be a hard year to say good-bye to. As the door opens to 2010, most are hopeful that the economic ups and downs of the last 12 months will take on a more optimistic tone. While Wall Street seems to be trending that way, what can rural

America — particularly the cattle markets — expect? Darrell Mark, an associate professor and Extension livestock marketing specialist at the University of NebraskaLincoln, offers his view, saying, “I look for fed cattle prices in 2010 to remain mostly in the $80s, similar to 2009. Seasonally, we should see upper $80s in the first and second quarter, with a drop to the lower $80s by the third quarter. Fourth quarter 2010 has a chance to move back towards $90.” That said, Mark acknowledges that the outlook for 2010 is difficult to peg right now. “It is difficult in many respects because market prices will be more demand driven than supply driven and that is hard to forecast,” he says. He further explains, “We really don’t have a supply problem — we have an historically tight beef cow inventory, calf crop supply, and heifer retention is down. Cattle supplies won’t be burdensome and cause lower prices. Demand will be more of a factor in determining whether we see higher or lower prices in 2010.” Specifically, Mark points out that roughly 90% of America’s beef product is consumed

This outstanding heifer will be sold at the Cattlemen’s Classic in Kearney, Neb., on February 17, 2009.

“Demand will be more of a factor in determining whether we see higher or lower prices in 2010.” — Darrell Mark domestically, so it is important for domestic consumer demand to remain strong. However, he says, “With the economic recession still looming on people’s minds, consumer spending for many products, including higher-end protein, will be hard to improve in 2010.” Mark adds, “Restaurant demand, which has been key to ‘middle meat’ sales — specifically steaks — has been hurt most acutely by the recession, and I think people will be quite cautious about discretionary spending in the next year or so. They may continue to dine out less frequently or at fewer ‘upscale’ restaurants.” Thus, Mark concludes, “The bottom line, I think, is that we need to see an improvement in the economy and an increase in consumer spending before we see demand really pick up and support much higher fed cattle prices.”

Global demand, too Looking internationally, Mark says a strengthening beef export market would also contribute to better U.S. cattle prices. And he adds, “The relatively cheap U.S. dollar, if that continues into 2010, will help support that export trade.” Cattle-Fax Executive Vice President Randy Blach is also a believer in the importance of building U.S. beef exports. Blach addressed the Texas

Cattle Feeders Association annual convention in late October and emphasized the continued need for building U.S. beef demand globally. Blach said, “I don’t want to sound like a broken record. I’ve said this for the last several years, but I still think this [restoring beef exports] is an area where we’re really missing the boat as an industry.” He added that beef producers need to work harder to get “the right people’s attention and get some of these markets opened up.” Blach said, “It would have a tremendous impact on what we’re able to merchandise cattle for.” He explained, “We still aren’t back to the same levels of beef exports that we were pre-BSE. We were exporting 2.5 billion lbs. in 2003. We’re going to be lucky to be at 1.8 or 1.9 billion lbs. this year.” According to Blach, if U.S. beef was operating under the same trade protocols with Japan as it is with South Korea, “It would be worth another $60 to $70 per head across our fed cattle market.” Getting into China also needs to be a priority, he says. Overall, the decline in beef demand is the biggest challenge facing the industry, according to Blach. “We’ve averaged $83 to $84 on fed cattle this year. If we had the same demand we had a year ago, our market would be averaging $94 to $95 per hundredweight.” On a brighter note, Blach said that because supply levels are well in check, a significant increase in fed cattle prices could come as the economy recovers, possibly toward the end of 2010.

A billboard campaign that sprung up around the country in 2009, dubbed “Recession 101,” aimed to help the country realize it has undergone recessions before and made it through. One of the campaign’s more popular billboards stated simply: “Bill Gates started Microsoft in a recession.” That said, many economists are suggesting that with economic lean times also come opportunities — particularly for young people looking to start their own businesses. “Right now, we’re going through a fundamental shift in the nation’s economy,” said Gary Whitehill, founder of New York Entrepreneur program, in a news release. “Unstable times create incredible opportunities, and there’s an important opportunity for the younger generation.” A recent study from American Express OPEN, which focuses on small business, illustrates that point. The study found that 80% of Generation Y entrepreneurs (ages 18-28) have a positive outlook on the economy, compared with 55% of those aged 29-44 and 52% of baby boomers (ages 45-63). Gen Y entrepreneurs are also the most likely to hire, have a capital investment plan and take financial risk and the least likely to have cash flow issues, according to the report.

We all like to talk about change. Here at Lapp Ranch, we are not changing our cattle or our program — just our way of merchandising our cattle. After being a cooperative producer for Pharo Cattle Co. for the last eight years and selling cattle into 25 states and Canada with very positive results, we are no longer a part of PCC. Although being with PCC was a very rewarding venture, we have decided to go back to selling our cattle privately. We want low input cattle with enough performance to be competitive and profitable for our customers. We still emphasize low birth weights, easy fleshing, moderate frame cattle with extra muscle and, of course, our signature trait, which is pigment. We don’t just talk pigment. We produce it. We have some great ET calves available as well as 150 bulls and 200 females annually.

Photos of calves are ET calves out of our 16-year-old 137Y daughter that is still in production.

An El Niño Winter

California will likely be wet, Texas could be cool and wet, but the Midwest should be warmer and a bit drier than average. by Kindra Gordon

El Niño is back in the forecast for the 2010 winter season and, as a result, will influence the weather through February and possibly into the spring in the U.S., according to the 2009 Winter Outlook released by the National Climate Prediction Center (CPC). “We expect El Niño to strengthen and persist through the winter months, providing clues as to what the weather will be like during the period,” says Mike Halpert, deputy director of the CPC — a division of the National Weather Service. He explains that an El Niño means “warmer ocean water in the equatorial Pacific shifts the patterns of tropical rainfall and in turn changes the strength and position of the jetstream and storms over the Pacific Ocean and the U.S.” Here’s what certain portions of the country can expect if this El Niño pattern persists:

expected across the Southeast and mid-Atlantic from southern and eastern Texas to southern Pennsylvania and south through Florida.

• Above-average precipitation

is expected in the southern border states, especially Texas and Florida. This is good news for Texas, where more rainfall would improve current drought conditions in central and southern Texas, according to CPC’s Halpert. However, tornado records suggest that there may also be an increased chance of organized tornado activity for the Gulf Coast region this winter.

• Drier-than-average conditions are

expected in the Pacific Northwest and the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys. Again, this is good news for the Ohio region, which has had a soggy harvest season.

• Warmer-than-average

temperatures across much of the western and central U.S., especially in the north-central states from Montana to Wisconsin. Though temperatures may average warmer than usual, periodic outbreaks of cold air are still possible, states the CPC.

• Below-average temperatures are

• Equal chances for above-, near-,

or below-normal temperatures and precipitation in the Northeast. Winter weather in this region is often driven not by El Niño but by weather patterns over the northern Atlantic Ocean and

Source: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

Arctic, such as the North Atlantic Oscillation. These patterns are often more short-term and are generally predictable only a week or so in advance.

• A slight tilt in the odds toward

wetter-than-average conditions over the entire state of California.

Iowa State University Extension Climatologist Elwynn Taylor concurs with the CPC report. Taylor explains that the past two winters have had a La Nina pattern but conditions changed this past summer toward the El Nino pattern, moving into 2010. Of this Taylor says, “California has already gotten some El Niño weather (which means wet), and some people

are not happy there. But usually El Niño is a friend to Midwest agriculture because everything is closer to normal over winter.” He adds that a more normal pattern means some areas in the Midwest will have the opportunity to dry out and not be “so sopping wet.” The CPC emphasizes that its seasonal outlook for winter does not predict where and when snowstorms may hit or total seasonal snowfall accumulations. Halpert explains that snow forecasts are dependent upon winter storms, which are generally not predictable more than several days in advance. HW

Mary Hawkes won the “Best of Beef” $25,000 grand prize With her recipe for Sonoma Steaks with Vegetables Bocconcini, amateur home cook Mary Hawkes of Prescott, Ariz., won the checkoff-funded 28th National Beef Cook-Off $25,000 “Best of Beef” grand prize, topping recipes from 14 other finalists. The competition awarded $70,000 in total prize money Sept. 23 in Sonoma, Calif. The cook-off’s “Sonoma Style” theme focused on fresh, flavorful ingredients paired with nutrientrich beef cuts. The winning Sonoma Steaks with Vegetables Bocconcini recipe featured grilled beef top loin steaks, zucchini, yellow bell pepper and red grape tomatoes tossed with herb-marinated fresh mozzarella balls. In addition, the dish is an excellent source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, selenium and zinc and a good source of iron. All contestants prepared their recipes for evaluation by a judging panel of local and national food journalists. Criteria included taste, appearance, convenient preparation and nutritional balance. The judges raved about Hawkes’ recipe because of its overall simplicity, her efficient use of ingredients, and the mellow flavor and texture of the mozzarella balls partnered with the smoky grilled steak and vegetables. Funded by the Beef Checkoff Program, the National Beef Cook-Off showcases Americans’ love of beef. The cook-off promotes beef consumption by reaching consumers with appealing beef recipes that deliver on taste, health and convenience. “We’re delighted to name Mary Hawkes and her Sonoma Steaks with Vegetables Bocconcini recipe as the grand prize winner,” said Sherry Hill, National

Beef Cook-Off Program manager. “All of our finalists’ recipes were exceptional — perfect examples of how to combine fresh ingredients and nutritious beef in innovative ways.” In addition to the “Best of Beef” grand prize, six cash prizes were awarded in three other categories. The winner in each category received $10,000. This year’s category winners are: • Live well with fast and convenient grilled beef recipes: Kristina Vanni, Hollywood, Calif. • Teens cooking with beef: Morgan Hanrahan, Olympia, Wash. • Lean beef in nutrient rich one-dish meals: Elizabeth Bennett, Mill Creek, Wash. The runner-up in each category received $5,000. This year’s runner-up winners are: • Live well with fast and convenient grilled beef recipes: Deborah Biggs, Omaha, Neb. • Teens cooking with beef: Erin Ozment, Purcell, Okla. • Lean beef in nutrient rich one-dish meals: Fran Fehling, Staten Island, N.Y. In a separate cook-off event, six professional chefs from the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento counties competed head-to-head, showcasing their original beef dishes that portrayed “Sonoma Style” cooking. The chef challenge was held on Sept. 21, 2009, at Sally Tomatoes Event Center in neighboring Rohnert Park. The chefs competed for prizes totaling $5,000. The grand prize winner was Carlo Cavallo, executive

A highlight of the tour was going into the caves where the Kunde family wine ages. The caves are built deep into the hillside behind the winery and include more than 32,000 square feet of tunnels.

The Kunde cave holds up to 6,000 barrels of wine.

Get-of-Sire — Remitall Online 122L progeny, by Star Lake Cattle Ranch

Premier exhibitor and best six head — Star Lake Cattle Ranch, Skiatook, Okla.

The Bluegrass Stakes sale during the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville annually features some top show heifer prospects along with females that go on to make superior breeding tools. This year was no different. When Dale Stith landed the gavel for the final time Nov. 18, 13 lots averaged $4,527. Purple Reign Cattle Co., Toulon, Ill., always brings a good one to this sale and this year was no different and proved to be the high seller at $11,000. Lot 3, Purple Stellsappa 1V, a Jan. 19, 2009, daughter of Purple Milsap 45S, demanded the top bid from SV Cattle Co., Bridgeville, Del. New consignors to this sale, Star Lake Cattle Ranch, Kasey Herman and the Jim Herman family, offered a Feb. 8, 2009, heifer sired by STAR Bright Future 533P ET. The

high bid on this heifer was $10,400, and she will find her new home with Maxwell Cherry, Winthrop, Iowa. Randy Christy, Union City, Mich., consigned a really great show prospect born Feb. 2, 2009, sired by BR DM CSF Wallace. This heifer went on to win her class the following day in a tough national Hereford female show. New owners, Kelby Burks, Park City, Ky., and JWR Land & Cattle, Rockmart, Ga., bid $6,750 to purchase this outstanding show heifer. Longtime consignors to this sale, Laudeman Family Farm, Bremen, Ind., consigned Lot 13, SRF Miss Riley ET, an April 2, 2009, heifer by KT John Wayne 7167. Placing a bid of $5,400 for half interest in this female was Aaron Pastryk, Niles Mich. A good-sized crowd was on hand for this popular sale. — Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of field management and seedstock marketing

In the News

Craig and Natalie Reed, Kansas, City, Mo., announce the birth of their daughter, Maggie Louise, born Aug. 6. She was welcomed Maggie Reed home by sisters Macy and Mallory. Craig served as a National Junior Polled Hereford Council member. Paternal grandparents are Jim and Linda Reed, Green Ridge, Mo.

South Dakota Senator Jean Hunhoff showed “Erv,” a Hereford heifer, to the grand champion title in the South Dakota State Fair Inaugural Legislative Beef Showmanship Contest. “Erv,” aka RV Boulder Lass 8110, is owned by Jeremiah Johnson, Huron, S.D., and was bred by Ravine Creek Ranch, Huron, S.D.

In Passing Norman Vogle, 80, of Coleridge, Neb., passed away Oct. 23 at the Golden Living Center. Norman graduated from Hartington Public High School and served in the U.S. Army. After his discharge from the Army, he worked for his father on the farm. He was married to Gloria Brammer on June 23,1957, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in rural Wakefield. After their wedding, he continued to work for his father on the farm until 1967, when his father retired and they moved to their present farm. Norman was a member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Coleridge, the Coleridge American Legion Post #114 and Hartington VFW Post #5283. He was president of the Cedar County Historical Society. He loved baseball and football and hunting and fishing and enjoyed watching the Wynot baseball team. He is survived by his wife, Gloria. Thomas “Tom” Ihry, 57, Valley City, N.D., passed away Oct. 26. The oldest of 11 siblings, Tom grew up on a farm near Luverne, N.D. After graduating from Luverne High School, Tom attended North Dakota State University (NDSU) in Fargo. While at NDSU, he was an active member of the Saddle & Sirloin Club, Alpha Zeta Honor Society and FarmHouse Fraternity. Upon graduation, Tom returned to Hope, N.D., where he farmed with his father, uncle Leo Ihry, and brother John J. Ihry; together they raised grain and livestock. Tom was active in the Hope community and St. Agatha’s Catholic Church in Hope. On June 19, 1993, Tom married the love of his life, Dawn Crum, in Rushville, Ill. Tom and Dawn have three children: Ruth Ellen, 14; Samuel Leo, 11 and Grace Noel, 11. Tom loved the livestock industry — from raising chickens as a child to his beloved cattle. His passion for breeding good livestock will be missed throughout the industry. Tom was not a cowboy, but a true cowman. Tom was a lifelong member of the American Hereford Association, American Angus Association and North Dakota Stockman’s Association. Tom is survived by his wife and children; his mother, Rosalie; his fatherin-law and wife, Wayne and Kay Crum; and his mother-in-law, Judy Hoerman. www.hereford.org

who have made a significant difference in the cattle and ranching business. Tee has been a registered Hereford breeder for more than 50 years and is a past president of the Texas Hereford Association. Jim Kuhlman, 72, of Mason City, Iowa, was inducted into the Iowa Hereford Hall of Fame during the Iowa Hereford Breeders Association’s recent annual meeting in Amana.

commercial Hereford heifers. Jim traded a milk cow for two open commercial Hereford heifers in the spring of 1946, and he has owned Herefords since. His first registered Herefords were purchased in December 1955 in the famous Mill Iron Ranch dispersal. Jim was on the board of the Iowa Hereford Association when the horned and polled associations formed the Iowa Hereford Breeders Association (IHBA). He served six years on the IHBA board from 2003-2008. He could be called the “voice of Herefords,” having announced the Hereford shows at the Iowa State Fair and the Iowa Beef Expo for the last 12 years and at the Clay County Fair from 2006-2008. HW

Family

As we look back at the first decade of this millennium, our family has grown and started the fifth generation of Hereford breeders.

Do we measure up to the past and what will the next generations contribute? Just as we look at our cow families, over the years some, but not all, have stayed and prospered. We have been through really short and really tall cattle and both narrow based and very wide based cattle. Now as our breed is turning its attention to carcass traits, we have to find the optimum. How do we know what will become optimum for carcass traits a heifer expresses and still have her remain a productive mother cow?

From our family to yours, As we look to this new decade, we wish you, your family and your operation health, happiness and success.

This heifer, 14U, is an outlier in our herd for carcass traits, as her data suggests.
