A Market-led Cross Doolittle Wagner Ranch LLC is bringing Hereford back into its black-hided herd. by Julie Mais

A

successful business doesn’t happen by accident. Keeping a careful watch on market trends, penning accurate records and taking advantage of new technologies help keep any business venture thriving. Jim Doolittle and Karen Wagner of Doolittle Wagner Ranch LLC in Buffalo, S.D., have built upon their lifelong passion of ranching to establish a progressive commercial cattle operation by making market-led decisions, maintaining extensive records and utilizing new practices in their herd.

Natives of western South Dakota, the couple grew up in farming and ranching families. Karen’s grandfather homesteaded in Harding County, where her parents eventually farmed, cut hay and ran cattle. Jim’s grandparents also homesteaded in the area around the turn of the century. On the open range, his grandfather grazed sheep and later converted to raising cattle. “My family had Hereford cattle, and at that time Hereford was the majority breed in the region,” Jim says. continued on page 24...

Bald-Faced Facts

by Jack Ward

Hereford offers maternal heterosis advantages without sacrificing end-product merit.

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

The Hereford breed has been widely accepted in commercial herds as the choice to add heterosis. The American Hereford Association (AHA) 2017-20 Strategic Plan directs the AHA Board of Directors, staff and its members to stay committed to adopting new technologies for genetic improvement and to educate the industry on the benefits of using Hereford genetics. Over the course of the past two years, the AHA has worked to implement a single-step genomic evaluation using the Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT) software and to produce two new traits — Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) and Dry Matter Intake (DMI). The introduction of BOLT has allowed the AHA to add genotypes, pedigree and performance information simultaneously into an evaluation that runs more efficiently and produces a more reliable set of expected progeny differences (EPDs) for breeders and their customers. The AHA is focused on producing economically relevant traits (ERTs) to use in profit ($) indexes, which can help your customers make selection decisions based on their production system. You should work with your customers to identify their needs and to help them understand the definition

of the $Indexes. In some cases, it may be best for your customers to develop their own form of an index to identify the genetics they need or to customize the existing $Indexes. An example of this might be customers that like to buy one set of bulls for both heifers and bulls. If they have a British, predominately blackhided cow herd, they would want to use a set of bulls that excel for Baldie Maternal Index (BMI$) with a threshold on Calving Ease-Direct (CED). This approach allows them to select bulls in your offering that provide profitability in a system that retains heifers and then retains ownership in calves through harvest.

Across breed adjustments This spring, help your customers understand the value of heterosis and the advantages of using Hereford bulls to improve end-product merit when breeding a set of Angus-based commercial cows. The U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC; USDA Agricultural Research Service), Clay Center, Neb., has provided tools for commercial cattlemen to adjust EPDs across breeds and to look at the value of heterosis in a breeding program through

the Germ Plasm Evaluation (GPE) program, which has been using semen from multiple breeds for decades. Researchers evaluate all traits of economic importance including calving ease, growth, carcass, feed efficiency, fertility and others. Included in this research is the value of heterosis. The across breed adjustments are a tool to help compare EPDs across breeds and to allow cattlemen to identify favorable genetics for traits of economic importance. Calving ease is still ranked at the top of the list for traits of importance for cattlemen. The USMARC across-breedadjustments table does not include CED for a variety of reasons (you can find more details in the January 2017 Performance Matters column), but USMARC developed a breeding study to quantify the differences in Calving Difficulty (CD) and Maternal Calving Difficulty (MCD) among breeds. A total of 4,579 first-calf heifers were utilized from the GPE program, and within the British breeds, Hereford had the most desirable breed effect for CD and the second most desirable effect for MCD. If you look further into the information provided from the continued on page 12...

Performance Matters

The Right Direction

by Shane Bedwell

With the release of the new genetic evaluation, the AHA offers three profit indexes to utilize based on production goals.

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.

I hope those of you who have started calving season are off to a strong start and are excited with the progress you have made. Bull sale season is upon us, and the updated genetic evaluation implemented in late 2017 (see Page 34) provides access to a progressive set of tools, allowing cattlemen to make more informed selection decisions. Along with updating some of the parameters with the updated genetic evaluation, the American Hereford Association (AHA) implemented two key economically relevant traits (ERTs) into the suite of traits produced for every animal — Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) and Dry Matter Intake (DMI).

New traits SCF is a prediction of a cow’s ability to continue to calve from 3 to 12 years of age, given she calved as a 2-yearold. The expected progeny difference (EPD) is expressed as a deviation in the proportion of the 10 possible calvings to 12 years old expressed as a probability. For example, the daughters of a bull with a 30 EPD would have the genetic potential to have one more calf by age

Profit indexes These two traits are now incorporated in the three profit ($) indexes AHA produces for commercial producers, as well as the other key ERTs AHA is producing in its genetic evaluation. The Baldie Maternal Index (BMI$) is a maternally focused index based on a production system that uses HerefordAngus cross cows. Progeny of these cows are directed toward Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®). This index has significant weight on SCF, which predicts fertility and longevity of females. There is a slightly positive weight on Weaning Weight (WW), Mature Cow Weight (MCW) and Maternal Milk (MM), which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do not increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on DMI, but a positive weighting on Carcass Weight (CW), which is anticipated to provide profitability from finishing of non-replacement females and castrated males. Marbling (MARB) and Ribeye Area (REA) are also positively weighted to keep harvested progeny successful for CHB. This index is geared to identify Hereford bulls that will be profitable when used in a rotational cross with mature commercial Angus cows. The Brahman Influence Index (BII$) is a maternally focused index based on a production system that uses Hereford-Brahman cross cows. Progeny

of these cows are directed toward a commodity beef market since CHB does not accept Brahman-influenced cattle. This index also has significant weight on SCF. There is a slightly positive weight on WW, MCW and MM, which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do not increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on DMI, but a positive weighting on CW, which is anticipated to provide profitability in finishing non-replacement females and castrated males. MARB and REA are also positively weighted to keep harvested progeny successful for a variety of commodity-based programs. This index targets producers that use Hereford bulls on Brahman-influenced cows. The Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) is a terminal-sire index built on a production system where Hereford bulls are mated to mature commercial Angus cows and all progeny will be targeted for CHB after the finishing phase. This index has significant weight on CW to ensure profit on the rail. There is a positive weighting for average daily gain, along with a negative weighting on DMI to ensure efficient pounds of growth in the finishing phase. Keep in mind, this production system takes advantage of complementary breeding with the commercial Angus cow. Although MARB is weighted positively in this index, a positive weighting for REA and a negative weighting for Rib Fat (FAT) are a greater priority in this index to allow for optimum end-product merit. This is the only index with no emphasis on fertility. Remember, no replacement heifers are being retained in this scenerio. Utilizing these $indexes appropriately is critical for their success. All three economic indexes simulate potential profit relative to the production scenario given in the definitions of the index. If you are a commercial producer who is wanting to keep back females, then CHB$ is continued on page 12...

12 than the daughters from a bull with a 20 EPD. In other words, the daughters from the 30 EPD bull would have a 10% greater probability of having one more calf than the daughters from the bull with a 20 EPD. This is equivalent to saying the daughters are 10% more likely to remain in the herd to age 12. DMI predicts the daily consumption of pounds of feed. For example, if sire A has a DMI EPD of 1.1 and sire B has a DMI EPD of 0.1, you would expect sire B’s progeny, if comparably mated, to consume on average 1 lb. of feed less per day.

Hereford offers summer internship, ambassador program The AHA is offering opportunities for college students hoping to gain valuable real-world experience working with youth activities. Junior activities internship — The AHA youth department is offering college juniors or seniors the opportunity to assist with the planning and execution of junior shows and leadership events, and to gain experience in association work.

Applicants must be enrolled in an agriculture-related major and should be self-starters who are detailoriented, outgoing and have the ability to work well with all types of people. Travel to the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and other shows should be expected as part of the internship. The internship will span from approximately mid-May to midAugust, with specific starting and ending dates depending on the applicant’s availability. Applicants for the junior activities intern can send a cover letter, their résumé and references by Feb. 15 to Amy Cowan, AHA director of youth activities, acowan@hereford.org or P.O. Box 014059, Kansas City, MO 64101. For more information,

contact Cowan at 816-842-3757 or acowan@hereford.org. JNHE ambassador program — College students may also apply for the JNHE ambassador program. The 2018 ambassadors will assist the Natioal Junior Hereford Association board and AHA staff throughout the JNHE week — July 1-7 — in Grand Island, Neb., and the week prior to the show in the Kansas City office. Candidates must be a 2018 high school graduate, or older, and must have had national show experience. Ambassadors cannot be exhibitors or competitors at the 2018 JNHE. Ambassador applications are available online at hereford.org/youth/njha/ internships-ambassador-program/ and are due March 15.

USMARC GPE program, you will discover heterosis can positively affect end product. The Angus mean is 13.66 sq. in. ribeye area, 5.66 marbling score and 932.3 lb. for carcass weight. Using an alternate bull, Hereford, the heterosis effect on these traits is estimated at 0.26 sq. in. for ribeye area, -0.06 units for marbling score and 31.21 lb. for carcass weight using the GPE data. You must remember a 5.00 marbling score is equivalent to Sm 00 — so even with a slightly unfavorable change for marbling, you will still have a product that grades Choice or better. These numbers are produced through the germplasm project, and your customers may have a different mean to start, but this tool should give your customers some comfort if they are concerned about the harvest value of a set of black baldie steers. This information, along with the maternal heterosis advantage of the baldie female, continues to solidify the “Bald Face Truth About Hereford Genetics.” ...Performance Matters continued from page 8

not the index you would use, as it is strictly terminally focused. You would use BMI$ or BII$ for selection pressure, given your cow base fits the scenario of the $Index — Angusbased cows for BMI$ and Brahmanbased cows for BII$. The $index value of animals shows how they rank compared to other animals for the respective scenarios — the actual numbers do not translate into actual economic dollars. For example, if you had a bull at a 35 CHB$ and another at a 25 CHB$, the difference is 10. This difference doesn’t equate to $10 per head; it only signifies the sire with a 35 for CHB$ will be more profitable when used in this scenario than when compared to the sire with a 25 for CHB$. What’s best to look at is the impact of putting selection pressure on an individual $Index. Often, in selection and breed improvement, producers think of moving traits or indexes one standard deviation above the mean. This step helps to identify the animals that can move your herd forward in the specific trait or index of interest. More importantly, $Indexes help show what the resulting net effects will be on the traits that drive these indexes if you make progress by moving the individual index up one standard deviation. On Page 8 are three graphs showing the change in EPD genetic standard deviation due to the change of moving the $Index one standard deviation forward. Given CHB$ (Figure 1) is a terminal $Index, you would expect some of the maternal traits not to progress or even go backward on some traits. When looking at BMI$ (Figure 2) and BII$ (Figure 3), you can see progress can be made in the right direction in most every trait. It’s critical to select the right $Index for your needs.

Beef Talk by Kris Ringwall

The Challenge of Cow Size The solution is finding moderately sized cows that produce steers to meet current market desires and specifications.

Size has been the common denominator in revenue generation for cow-calf, backgrounding and feedlot operators. The process of raising cattle has been quite steady, with a general acknowledgment that growth is key to success. Calf weight, the product of the cow-calf producer, and carcass weight, the product of the feedlot, drive total dollars. Additionally, bigger cows produce bigger calves, but the discussion becomes clouded when factoring in mature cow size. Often, cow size discussions open debate rather than offer further understanding of the issue. Dollars generated as take-home pay depend on net return above expenses and offer a return on assets, which are not totally driven by the physical growth of the calf. The challenge is realizing this issue has three distinct players: the cow, the bull and the calf — which have grown in physical size.

Cow size affects bottom line The impact on the maternal and paternal animals and progeny is simply larger cattle. Calf growth, at least among those harvested, is a function of time. Bulls are selected to produce

progeny that fit market specifications — mission accomplished. The same is true for the cows, except herds have more cows, and they must be maintained year-around. The cow is the progenitor and the caregiver for the progeny, which means she carries the bulk of the expenses. As a result, cost control and production efficiency must come from the cow. Heifers are a byproduct of a very finetuned steer production system. Thus the dilemma — How are the cows replaced and appropriately sized if they are simply the counterpart of fast-growing steers? Producers need to be cognizant as expenses creep upward while trying to maintain an ever-increasing size of the maternal unit. The solution is finding moderately sized cows that produce steers that meet current market desires and specifications. Simply put, cattle are not near their maximum capacity for growth and mature size. Somewhere, producers must implement breeding systems that will develop cattle that moderate maternal growth.

The impact Let’s focus on 300 lb. of cow rather than the actual size of the cow. Regardless of the size of a cow, the

issue for the day is 300 lb. What does that mean, and how does 300 lb. of additional cow weight impact beef production? The Dickinson Research Extension Center has focused on two cow herds that differ in mature weight by 300 lb. The numbers are not exact, but the principle is there. Let’s just say, as a beef producer, one can decide to add or subtract 300 lb. to the mature weight of the cow herd. For the past three years, the center has been feeding heifers individually to get a handle on the difference between the calves from large-framed cows and smaller-framed cows. The heifers’ daily diets have been the same. Essentially, the heifers have been eating approximately 2.2% of their body weight. Assume these heifers will continue to eat 2.2% of their body weight for their productive lives. Feed consumption will change through time, but again, let’s not get lost in the decimal places. The extra 300 lb. times 2.2% is 6.6 lb. of feed per day. In a year, 6.6 lb. times 365 days means 2,409 lb. of feed may be consumed to sustain the extra 300 lb. of mature cow weight. Let’s review the two cow sizes at the center. Based on total cow weight, a

1,400-lb. cow would consume 30.8 lb. a day, or 11,242 lb. per year. In four years, the cow would have consumed 44,968 lb. of feed. The 1,100-lb. cow would have consumed 24.2 lb. per day, or 8,833 lb. per year. In four years, the cow would have consumed 35,332 lb. of feed, or 9,636 lb. less than the 1,400-lb. cow. That 9,636 lb. of feed directly relates to the 9,636 lb. of extra feed needed to add 300 lb. of mature weight to a cow. In simple terms, reducing cow size 300 lb. saves enough feed to support one additional cow for four years. Yes, cattle growth is important, but controlling expenses is important as well. The actual size of a cow is not as critical as the concept of simply lowering cow weight to lower expenses. At the same time, those 20% more cows will offer 20% more calves, the real benefit of trying to lower cow size within a herd. What is the right cow size? The answer will vary, but think about it. The impact is real.

Beef Growth Performance Continues to Be Stable The current growth benchmark for actual weaning weight is 554 lb. at 192 days of age, with an average daily gain of 2.5 lb. Beef cattle performance growth trends, as calculated through the Cow Herd Appraisal of Performance Software (CHAPS), are very stable. The North Dakota State University Extension Service and the North Dakota Beef Cattle Improvement Association (NDBCIA) collect and analyze the CHAPS data to produce meaningful

annual benchmarks. The current growth benchmark for actual weaning weight is 554 lb. at 192 days of age, with an average daily gain of 2.5 lb. These calves are a 5.2 frame score.

Herd performance benchmarks The NDBCIA uses the CHAPS program to calculate five-year rolling benchmark values for average herd performance, which have been quite consistent. Let’s look closer at age and weaning, weaning weight, average daily gain, and frame score benchmarks in the table to the left. Perhaps the commercial beef cattle business could be called mature, at least for growth on the cow-calf side of the business. A producer needs to decide what level of performance is expected and how much he or she is willing to expend to get that performance. Performance is really herd output, a function of age and growth.

The benchmarks provide a tool for herd evaluation, a review of growth annual trends and a number on which to base future goals for the operation. Interestingly, producers continue to market cattle with considerable growth potential, based on current trends for expected progeny difference (EPDs) within available herd sires offered for sale. They’re actually selling calves at historical weights, thus allowing the feeding industry to capture the additional growth potential bred into the cattle.

Managing growth Historical marketing brings comfort to established cow-calf programs. However, historical marketing programs apparently do not allow for expression and payback for the growth potential hidden within the phenotypes of the calves brought for sale. Ironically, the heifer mates to these cattle are retained at the homeplace. The heifers grow into cows and their mature weight is naturally similar to the steers that were sent to the feedlot. They have gotten bigger, so producers face some challenges —

growth genetics that are not being captured as the progeny are marketed and subsequently larger mother cows that cost more to keep. The real answer to the management of growth genetics needs to return to where it started — sound breeding systems combined with more flexibility in the marketing of the offspring. Historically, breeding systems were intended to allow producers to maintain the most efficient maternal cow at home, to purchase good terminal-type sires and to produce a terminal offspring that was intended for the feedyard. At some point, another breeding system would be utilized to produce the replacement maternal cow — thus, the best of both worlds. Cattle breeding systems with additional marketing options may well be the better answer. Producers need to implement terminal and maternal breeding systems with additional marketing flexibility.

Outlook for ’18 Large beef supplies likely to temper cattle prices in 2018. by Kindra Gordon

A

s we all turn the calendar to a new year, folks are having fun making predictions for the months ahead. It seems plausible that the race to bring “self-driving cars” to the commercial market may actually become reality in 2018. Less certain are predictions of what may happen within the Trump administration, how Bitcoin will fare or if consumers will embrace meatless meat. As the saying goes, “Only time will tell.” What about the cattle sector; what will 2018 bring? The current cattle inventory has been expanding over the last few years, with the calf crop in 2018 to be the largest inventory in a decade, according to Jim Robb, director of the Livestock Marketing Information Center. He projects 28 billion lb. of beef will be produced in the U.S. in 2018. Robb calls the herd expansion over the last couple of years “unprecedented.” That said, in the next couple of years, expansion is expected to continue, but the rate of growth is expected to slow down — and could slow

considerably if drought sets in. Robb calls beef’s future expansion pace “manageable” from a supply and demand standpoint but says the concern will be the additional production and supply of pork and poultry. “The biggest risk in the marketplace is the sheer volume of protein,” he says, and adds, “There’s going to be more [meat] out there and the question will be are we going to be able to swim our way through it?” In offering an outlook on market prices, Robb anticipates that with the abundant supply over the next two years, cattle prices will trend lower. But, by 2020 and 2021, he expects they may be stronger again.

2017’s surprise Looking back at calf prices during the fourth quarter of 2017, Robb notes that the strong market compared to a year ago was a “pleasant surprise.” Slaughter steer prices also fared above a year ago. While cattle markets did not reach the highs seen from 2011 through 2015, Robb notes that

2017 was a favorable year for all sectors of the beef industry. As testament, he shares, “U.S. packers had their best year in history, so they wanted more cattle to kill.” As a result, Robb explains, “The markets pulled animals through the feedlot; usually we are trying to push them through.” Additional factors that helped the market remain robust, according to Robb, included the domestic retail sector featuring beef as an item to draw customers in and buy, as well as continuing growth in export markets. Of retail, Robb notes that with so many consumers now buying products online, retail groceries have recognized that their fresh meat case is one major leverage point. He says grocery executives have learned that when beef is featured on sale, it brings people in. With regard to exports, U.S. beef exports should mark $7 billion in 2017 — a 7.5% growth compared to the previous year. Continued export growth of 5% is projected by the U.S. Meat Export Federation for 2018, which could help manage some of the

Weather outlook for ’18: warm and dry La Niña forecast predicted for the year ahead. A La Niña weather pattern is setting in for 2018, according to the Climate Prediction Center (CPC). And that means the Southwest and Southeast will likely be warmer and drier than average and the Northwest and Midwest have the potential to be colder and wetter. Specifically, weather models suggest that during the first few months of 2018, the bottom two-thirds of the continental U.S. will likely experience warmer-than-normal conditions. Most of the upper one-third of the country — South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan — is in the category of “equal chances” for a normal temperature winter. From North Dakota west to Washington, a sliver of the country along the Canadian border is projected to have cooler temperatures than normal (See Figure 1). As to the big question of who will get moisture — the outlook is somewhat grim. Only the northern Rockies and the Midwest are forecast to receive above-average precipitation, according to the CPC. The center of the country is forecast to have “equal chances” for precipitation, meaning it could be dry or wet but, most likely, dry. And, the Southern Tier across the Carolinas, Florida, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California is dry — and already

seeing that trend set in (See Figure 2). In fact, the D-word — drought — is already being used by some. Colorado weather forecaster and ag producer Brian Bledsoe confirms that drought is already setting in across the Southwest and Southern Plains — and even creeping into the Northern Plains. In looking at weather prediction models forecasting all the way out to June, Bledsoe says they indicate, “The dryness continues.” He tells producers to never anticipate an “average” forecast. Instead, he suggests preparing for “too much or not enough” with regard to moisture. Looking at 2018, he anticipates drought will impact many producers, especially in the Southern Plains. But to Northern Plains producers he says, “I won’t say you will be wet, you will be less dry.” Given these dry trends, Bledsoe advocates that producers be cautious about overextending their resources — financial and feed — in the coming months. He believes hay prices will double quickly. And, he stresses the need to have a drought plan ready and written down. The plan should detail which groups of cattle your operation will sell off by which date if it does not rain. Editor’s note: Follow more of Bledsoe’s forecast on Twitter @BrianBledsoe or visit his website at weather5280.com.

extra beef supply that is expected. If domestic consumer demand for beef holds together, that too would bode well for handling the beef supply.

Plan and prepare Because no one has a crystal ball to the future, the best advice to producers is to be prepared for a price downturn to mitigate risk. Of the unexpected profits producers may have garnered from 2017 calf prices, Robb advises, “Use that money wisely.” He adds, “Be prepared to swim upstream. As soon as the market turns, you’ve got to plan better.” Likewise, CattleFax economist Ethan Oberst is encouraging producers to get their risk management tools in order as the cattle cycle prepares to change in 2018. He says, “High prices are behind us. Profitability has peaked. Margins will narrow, but remain positive [for a time], but that’s going to change.” His number one tool for managing risk is to calculate and know breakeven costs. Additionally, he emphasizes knowing animal inventory and suggests that cow herd operations especially look at running some yearlings, which allows for stocking flexibility depending on changes in markets or available forage. With regard to marketing, Oberst says knowing the seasonal market trends is one relatively easy way to employ risk management and to capitalize on price upswings. As examples, he points to data that showed in marketing 550 lb. calves, the seasonal price trend indicates it may be more advantageous to market them via summer video auction as opposed to the cash market. Whereas, 850 lb. calves garnered similar prices on video and cash market, making either option viable. For cull cows, Oberst says they follow “one of the most consistent seasonal price markets there is.” March through May or June sees the highs, while October and November see the lows. Thus, he advises producers, “Holding cull cows until spring can return $60/ head on average.” As additional risk management tools, Oberst cites retaining ownership, using basis contracts, hedging and securing livestock risk protection (LRP) insurance.

Calving

A Careful Eye

Knowing when and how to check a cow during labor is crucial. by Heather Smith Thomas

M

ost cows and heifers progress normally through the three stages of labor — early labor, active labor with abdominal straining, and then expulsion of the placenta after delivery of the calf. Uterine contractions in early labor get the calf aimed toward the birth canal, the cervix dilates and the calf starts through. The water sac and the calf entering the birth canal stimulates abdominal straining — which is the hallmark of second stage labor — to push the calf out. Sometimes, however, the calf does not start into the birth canal, and the cow does not begin hard straining. This may be confused with the first stage labor. If she is not checked and no intervention is made, the cow and calf’s lives are at risk. Knowing when to check a cow and watching her to determine how long she has been in labor is crucial.

Stages of labor Bethany Funnell, clinical assistant professor at Purdue University, says it’s important to make sure the cow or heifer is actually in labor. She’s had clients who thought a cow was in labor because the cow was uncomfortable, had her tail up and was kicking at her belly. Abdominal discomfort can be due to several other things, or simply the fetus shifting position. “The producer thinks the cow is in labor, gets her in and checks her, and she’s not dilated,” Funnell explains. “Then the producer panics. Thus it’s important to make sure the cow is in labor and the signs you are seeing are not from some other cause of discomfort.” Funnel says she is a big proponent of early intervention, within reason. If a cow is acting like she’s in labor, Funnell says she should make progress every 15 minutes. A heifer should make progress every 30 minutes. Progress means she is actually starting to dilate, or she is actually starting to move the fetus into the birth canal. Funnell says these things are difficult to assess externally. “You have to clean the cow’s hind end, put on a sleeve and reach into the birth canal to assess the situation,” she advises. “You may have to repeat the same procedure 30 minutes later. Then you have a better handle on whether progress is being made.” If the cow or heifer is acting uncomfortable, and you’ve seen fluid expelled or membranes hanging out, within an hour there should be feet showing. In another hour the calf should be born. “If she is not making that kind of progress, you need to intervene and assist,” Funnell advises. If you see feet, it’s easier to assess progress, but when everything is still internal, it can be difficult. She says there is no visible way to assess early progress, but these situations require early intervention or the calf may be lost. Eventually the placenta is compromised, and the calf dies.

Normal stages of labor Stage I – Early labor — preparatory stage lasting one to four hours when the cervix dilates and uterine contractions move the fetus toward the birth canal. Stage II – Active labor — abdominal straining lasting 30 minutes to two hours resulting in expulsion of the calf. Stage III – Expulsion of the placenta after delivery of the calf. 36

It becomes more difficult to manipulate the calf to “The general rule of thumb when monitoring the calving cow is correct a problem. I have to make a decision whether to pump the to look for progression every hour,” he advises. “If a heifer or cow uterus full of lubrication and try to extract the calf vaginally, or go is actively straining for more than one hour with no progress, you ahead with a C-section.

This can be an indication to the cow. something is wrong. Is the calf too large? “On the other hand, the cow may be taking her full two hours,” Sometimes the calf isn’t progressing through the birth canal he notes. “If you are seeing progress — the water bag, then the because it’s too large.

If so, a However, if only the water bag is visible and she stalls, it is time veterinarian needs to be called in case a C-section is required. to check. On rare occasion, a producer may see placental tissue “There are two things I go by to determine if the calf is too coming out with no feet, which means the calf is detaching and large for vaginal delivery,” he explains. “One clue is the feet can’t live much longer. This is an emergency and the cow needs crossing. If it’s a normal presentation where the calf is in diving restrained, so the producer can check to see what’s happening and position, if those legs are crossing over each other, it’s usually deliver the calf. “There are some other odd things that might happen, such as continued on page 38... the calf coming breech — just a tail in the birth canal — or we see the calf’s intestines coming out of the cow, or abnormal hemorrhaging from the cow,” Creelman explains. “If we see something unusual we need to check her immediately.”

Checking the cow It’s important to be very clean. Creelman says to scrub her perineal area, and your arms. Additionally, he says to go in clean using long plastic gloves, and apply sterile lube. “If you decide you need to manipulate the calf to correct a problem, the rule of thumb is to take no longer than 30 minutes,” he advises. “If you’ve attempted a correction for more than 30 minutes, it’s time to call your veterinarian or your neighbor for assistance.” If nothing enters the birth canal because the calf is breech or there is a uterine torsion, the cow may not begin abdominal straining. She may seem as if she is still in early labor, so it is common to keep waiting for something to happen. However, if she goes too long, the placenta will detach from the uterus causing problems. In many cases, the producer knows the cow’s history and knows that she’s taking an abnormally long time. It’s better to check too soon than to wait too long and have a dead calf. “There is no harm in checking, as long as we handle the cow appropriately with good facilities to restrain her, and going in clean,” Creelman Hereford.org

...A Careful Eye continued from page 37

because the shoulders and elbows are too large coming through the pelvis. When I see those legs crossed, very rarely will I be able to do a forced extraction through the birth canal.” Creelman says his other rule of thumb, when he reaches in to assess the situation, is to make sure there’s room over the top of the calf’s head. He says if you put your hand over the head and can’t get your fingers between the calf’s forehead and the cow’s pelvis, he’s too large to come through. “If your hand will fit and you think the pelvic area is large enough, but the birth canal is tight, you may need to take a little time stretching it before actually trying to pull the calf,” he explains. In first calf heifers especially, he says there will be some tight rings of connective tissue inside the vulva,

and even though the feet may come through, these rings have to stretch a lot more before the head can come through. “It pays to put your arms in there and stretch that tissue before you attach chains to the legs and pull the calf,” he advises.

What am I feeling? When the producer checks a cow that’s taking too long and nothing is showing at the vulva, the first thing to do is to try to find two feet, a head or two feet and a tail. “To know if these are front feet or hind feet, do a flexion test,” Creelman explains. “In the front leg, the fetlock and the knee both flex the same direction — both joints bend down. In the hind leg, the fetlock flexes one direction and the hock flexes the opposite direction.”

Sometimes when there are twins, there may be extra legs trying to come into the birth canal or possibly a leg from each calf. Even if there are two front legs, it is important to make sure they belong to the same calf before chains are attached to start pulling. With a breech calf, it has to be pushed back enough to have space to manipulate each hind leg very carefully into the birth canal. “We cup a hand over the top of the foot to make sure it doesn’t tear the cow’s uterus as we flex the hock and bring it around,” he notes. “It’s crucial to position the limb at a diagonal, to come through the widest space in the pelvis.” It takes a long arm to reach the feet of a breech calf, if it’s a long-legged calf and the feet are positioned toward the front of the calf. “As long as you know which legs you have, you can make the decision on what to do and whether you can assist the birth,” he says. If there are two front legs but no head, it is critical to find the head and get it coming into the birth canal. If there are two back legs and it’s not breech, that calf can be pulled backward as long there is enough space for the calf’s hips to come through. “Reach into the birth canal and try to place your hand over the hips, and also make sure the tail is not pointing forward,” Creelman advises. If the tail is up over the calf’s back, it makes the space just that much smaller and may also injure the cow as the calf is pulled. Creelman says as long as there is a hand’s thickness width between the cow’s pelvis and the calf’s hips, the calf should pull out fine. It will usually require the effort of two people or a calf puller to pull a backward calf out quickly enough, so he can start breathing since the umbilical cord will be pinched off or pulled apart as he comes out. His front end can’t be inside the cow for very long, or he will suffocate. “Sometimes we see calves with fused joints that won’t bend or straighten, and are completely immobile — and you can’t get the legs into the birth canal,” Creelman says. “There are other abnormalities like two-headed calves, or an inside-out calf with intestines on the outside. Sometimes those are extremely difficult to remove vaginally. In many cases, we have to do a fetotomy or a C-section because the calf’s spine is fused backward and there is limited room to move it around.” Creelman says with these abnormalities, the veterinarian will have tricks for manipulating or extracting those calves. If the producer comes across something uncommon, it’s usually best to have some help. When in doubt, get professional help because the veterinarian probably has more experience on handling these unusual situations.

The average length of pregnancy is approximately 283 days, but this figure is just an average and very few cows calve on their estimated due date. Gestation length is partly a matter of genetics. Some breeds and some family lines within breeds tend to have varying gestation lengths, and this is a factor in calving ease. Cattle with shorter gestation lengths generally give birth to smaller calves since the fetus is growing fastest at the end of gestation. A 278-day gestation usually results in a smaller, lighter calf than a 288-day gestation. One study showed that for each extra day of gestation, there is approximately one pound of increase in the size of the calf.

Controlling gestation length One reason bull calves are usually larger and heavier than heifer calves is they tend to be carried longer — partly due to hormonal factors. A cow that calves a few days before her estimated due date often gives birth to a heifer, whereas a cow that goes overdue often has a bull calf.

To increase calving ease, a producer can select bulls with a shorter gestation length to use on the cow herd.

Buddy Westphal is a seedstock producer in Montana with a herd of 600 cows. He says he pulls less than 10 calves per year, but 90% of the time when he assists with the birth it’s a bull calf. “They usually go a few days past the due date and tend to be a little bigger,” Westphal explains. Actual due date can vary depending on gestation length of certain individuals. Some cows consistently tend to calve earlier or later than their projected due date. In contrast, some bulls sire calves that are regularly born earlier or later. Fetal development and rate of maturation is influenced by the genetics of both the sire and the dam. One reason a low-birthweight bull tends to sire smaller calves is his calves inherit a shorter gestation length than average. If both the sire and dam tend to have short gestation lengths, the calf will be born earlier. If either the sire or the dam has genetics for a longer gestation, the results may be mixed depending on which trait is inherited by the calf. “Birthweight of the cow has an influence on the birthweight of her calf no matter what you breed her to,” Westphal explains. “The calf may be larger than you hoped.” He has been interested in gestation length for many years — particularly as it applies to calving ease, more time for the cow to recover from calving and to breed back on time. When he started his purebred operation 45 years ago after attending Colorado State University (CSU), the cows on the ranch he bought had significant calving problems. The bulls he was using sired big calves that consistently went a week or two past their estimated due dates. “My professors at CSU, including Dr. Wiltbank who did a lot of research in Miles City with Dr. Bellows, taught us that a cow had to have a calf every 365 days to be profitable,” Westphal says. “It doesn’t matter whether you calve in spring or fall, she needs to calve on the same schedule every year.” Otherwise she falls behind with a calf that doesn’t fit the producer’s program, and she may eventually end up open. “When a cow is calving 10 days or two weeks late, especially if she has a big calf and a hard birth, she’s losing that amount of time to recover and rebreed on schedule,” he explains. “She’ll calve two to three weeks later the next year, and her calf will be 20 lb. lighter than the others.” After a few years of that cycle, she will inevitably come up open. As a result, Westphal looks for bulls that sire calves with a shorter gestation. Using those bulls enables him to get his cows bred back quicker. “I went to the Canadian Conception to Consumer test, where they verified bulls of many breeds through their testing program, and they had exact gestation lengths on all of them,” he notes. “I was looking for bulls that had a 283-day or less average gestation length. I found some bulls that fit into that category and started using those. Instead of siring a 120-pound calf, they’d sire an 80-pound calf, and it would be born a lot easier.” Thus, the calving problems were reduced, and that reduction solved the dilemma of getting the cows bred back on time. Forty years later, his calving season is much easier and 75% of his calves are coming from the Hereford.org


It doesn’t matter whether you calve in spring or fall, she needs to calve on the same schedule every year.

first heat cycle. “This adds fertility to the herd,” he notes. “If a cow has a huge calf, even if you don’t have to pull it, she often won’t clean up as quickly or breed back on time.” Smaller calves jump right up to nurse and stay healthier. In his experience, the smaller calves grow just as big by fall as the ones that are bigger at birth. “Many of my bull customers calve out on range pastures and can’t afford calving problems,” he says. “The key to success is having short gestation and easy-born calves.” The big question when using a new bull is what the gestation length of his calves will be. Records are kept on birthweight, but finding records on gestation length is not always possible. However, Westphal says every good breeder should be able to furnish that information, and most of his customers demand it.

Predicting calving Even with an accurate breeding date based on gestation records, the cow or heifer may calve a few days ahead or a few days later He says predicting when she will calve can sometimes be a challenge to producers. There are some clues, however. As a cow or heifer nears the end of gestation, her body makes changes to aid the birth process. One of the first signs of approaching calving is development of her udder. It may begin enlarging as early as six weeks before she calves, or it may suddenly fill during the last few days of gestation. Some cows and heifers have so much udder development that the producer would think calving is imminent, but they go many more days before the actual event — often becoming miserably uncomfortable from the udder swelling. Others may “bag up” overnight, and they may calve before the producer realizes they are ready. “Even when you have a breeding date and know that it is correct, there are a handful of cows that can fool you,” Westphal explains. One clue that calving will take place within about 24 hours is the teats filling. Even if the udder has been large for many days, the teats themselves often don’t become full and distended until the cow is nearly ready to calve. Occasionally the plug in the end of the teat will start to come out, showing a bit of secretion on the end of the teat. Other signs of impending labor include mucus discharge from the vulva as the cervical plug softens and is expelled. A long string of clear mucus may hang from the vulva. The tissues around the birth canal become soft, and the vulva is enlarged and loose so the calf can more easily push through. The loose vulva is a sign the cow or heifer is approaching her calving date, but it is important to keep in mind some individuals become enlarged and loose several weeks before calving. Another sign of calving is relaxing of the pelvic ligaments. If producers look closely at the area between a cow’s tail head and the pin bone on each side, it is relaxed, appearing somewhat loose and sunken. One of the surest ways to predict calving is to feel those pelvic ligaments. They are about an inch in diameter, connecting the pin bones to the spine. They attach to the vertebrae just ahead of where the tail starts and are easily visible on most dairy cows and on thin beef cows. The ligaments are normally very hard and tight, except for a few hours just before labor begins and just after calving. They loosen as part of the birth process that enables all parts of the birth canal to expand so the calf can come through. If a producer is checking for relaxing ligaments, the cow has to be standing for the producer to adequately feel the ligament. An adequate assessment will not be achieved if she’s just gotten up; it takes a few minutes of standing before the ligament assumes its normal tightness or looseness. Labor will usually begin approximately 12 hours after complete relaxation of those ligaments. By keeping good breeding records, producers can have a projected due date. However, the sex of the calf, age of the cow, season of year, heritability of gestation length and nutrition of the dam can all be factors in whether calves come ahead of or after their projected due date. Winter-born calves tend to go a little longer than summer-born calves. Winter-born calves may also be bigger, especially if the winter was cold. This increase in size occurs not only because they are carried longer, but also because during cold weather the cow’s blood circulation is concentrated more around the internal organs rather than the extremities. As a result, the fetus in the uterus gets more nutrients. In general a cow calving the same time every year and bred to bulls with similar bloodlines will have roughly the Hereford.org

same gestation length yearly unless she is bred to a different bull with a longer or shorter gestation length. Weather also makes a difference. There is often a flurry of calving just before a storm. The calves that might have arrived over a several-day period may all come at once. When the barometer is falling, producers can expect a lot of calves. Many cows that are ready to calve will begin labor in a low-pressure period rather than when the barometer is rising. It is very common to have an abnormally high number of cows calve just before a storm and then less calving activity in the herd for the next 48 hours.

Body temperature drop Robert Callan, Ph.D., Colorado State University, says producers who have worked with cattle and calved a lot of cows can become extremely good at noticing the details indicative of a cow that is getting close to calving. “There has also been some research —primarily in dairy cows — that shows pregnant cows undergo a drop in core body temperature during the 12 to 24 hours preceding calving,” he explains. “In beef cattle, the body temperature can be monitored with use of temperature sensor boluses.” The bolus is given orally, and it ends up in the reticulum — similarly to how a magnet is put into the cow to prevent hardware disease. The bolus transmits the cow’s temperature, which is picked up by a receiver. These temperature transmitters are useful for detecting fever and early stages of illness including pneumonia and mastitis, but they were first used during heat stress research. “This could also be a way to flag the cows that might be in early labor,” he notes. “The temperature research, relative to calving, is still in its infancy in developing the appropriate algorithms, but the technology is there.” In situations where the herd is small, the animals are valuable and near a receiver for the transmitted signals, using these boluses could be a way to detect temperature drop as a clue for calving. “The one system that I know of here in Colorado is called DVM Systems [in Greeley, Colo.] At this point in time, their TempTrack remote temperature monitor is marketed primarily for dairy cattle but might be an option for genetically valuable beef seedstock. These boluses would probably last for the life of the cow,” Callan says.

Calving

Retained Placentas and How to Treat Them Learn about the causes and treatment options for retained placentas in your cow herd. by Heather Smith Thomas

M

ost cows “clean” soon after calving, shedding placental membranes within two to 12 hours. If it takes longer than 12 hours, it is called a retained placenta, according to Russ Daly, Ph.D., South Dakota State University Extension veterinarian. “When I was in practice we didn’t consider doing any kind of intervention until the placenta had been retained up to 72 hours, but our understanding of how to best treat these issues has changed,” he says.

Risks Bill Lias, Ph.D., Interstate Vet Clinic, Brandon, S.D., says veterinarians used to recommend removing the placenta if a cow didn’t clean within a day or so, but research has shown it’s better to leave it alone. “When I graduated from veterinary school, standard practice was to remove those placentas,” he explains, “but in recent years we’ve discovered it’s a risk to the health of the cow and her future fertility.” He says he still get calls occasionally from people wanting him to clean a cow, and he has to explain to them why that is not the best option. There is always risk for damage to the attachment sites when trying to remove those membranes. The placenta interfaces with the uterine lining, and the caruncles in the uterus attach to the cotyledons of the placenta. A cow has a certain number of caruncles, and if any of those are torn off, they do not regenerate. Because a fair

number of caruncles are required to support a pregnancy, it is not wise to manually remove the placenta and risk damage. “We also run the risk of introducing more contaminants into the uterus when we go in to remove the placenta,” Lias notes. “The standard today, and recommendation to producers, is to leave those cows alone, and the majority of them do fine.”

Potential infection Often no treatment is required. The membranes come away on their own within 10 days, but occasionally a retained placenta can lead to serious infection. “Keep the cow in a clean, dry environment until she sheds those membranes,” he advises. “Some times of year, that’s a challenge.” In short, the cow is better off in a pasture, moving around, rather than confined in a dirty corral. He says the main complicating factor is introduction of infection when those membranes are hanging out, and she’s lying in manure or mud. The placenta can then act as a wick to bring pathogens into the uterus. Any cow that retains her placenta should be closely monitored to make sure she does not develop an infection. In those situations, the cow will go off feed and have a fever. He notes the uterus can generally handle a local infection and clean itself out, but if the infection goes systemic, the cow will definitely need help. “Our best advice is to leave the cow alone, in a clean place, and watch her,” Lias says. “Most cows will be fine, but if she starts acting sick, consult a veterinarian. If the cow remains normal, with good appetite, she doesn’t need treatment even if it takes her a week or longer to clean. If they don’t get sick, those cows clean themselves up and rebreed on schedule. Cows are very hardy animals!” Daly says in the past, veterinarians manually unhooked the attachments and removed the placenta. “We thought we had to get rid of it so the cow wouldn’t get an infection,” he notes. “We’ve learned that this intervention can damage the uterus more than just leaving it alone.” According to Daly, when the placenta is manually removed, it can delay a functional heat cycle for up to 20 days longer compared with the cows left alone to shed the placenta normally. However, a mild local infection will generally clear up and won’t affect the cow’s ability to rebreed on time. The important thing is to watch a cow to see if she shows signs of systemic infection — going off feed, being depressed, being lethargic, and having a fever. He advises producers to take her temperature once a day, and if she starts to spike a fever, to get her started on an antibiotic. “You should have a veterinarian examine the cow and recommend treatment,” he continues. “The veterinarian may prescribe systemic antibiotics and possibly some anti-inflammatory medication.”

Treatment

It has been discovered in recent years removing a placenta from a cow is a risk to her health and future fertility.

| January 2018

It is better to use systemic antibiotics rather than putting anything into the uterus, according to George Barrington, Ph.D., Washington State University. “A study done years ago by a student here looked at neutrophil migration to the uterus,” Barrington explains. “He found that even putting buffered sterile saline into the uterus slowed down this migration. This suggests that putting anything into the uterus or infusing it with medication could be counterproductive.” Systemic antibiotics are more beneficial in warding off systemic infections, and they help treat any uterine infection from the retained placenta. However, Barrington says today’s producers Hereford.org


are limited on which drugs they can utilize. Fortunately, penicillin is still on the table and can help as long as the appropriate withdrawal times are observed. “Ceftiofur has historically been a good choice due to its wide spectrum,” he explains. “Current label usage includes acute metritis [along with foot rot and respiratory disease] but Excenel, Naxcel and Exceed are all prescription antibiotics available.” He advises producers to consult with a veterinarian because veterinarians can prescribe an appropriate antibiotic, as well as suggest an appropriate withdrawal period. “If you can’t get hold of a veterinarian, regular procaine penicillin G would be a good drug to use,” he explains. “Stick with the label dosage unless you can talk with a veterinarian to figure out what the withdrawal time would be if they suggest a higher dose.” It is still important to remember not all cows with a retained While cows will generally clean themselves with time, it is critical to watch them in placenta contract a serious infection. However, when they are case they generate an infection that needs treatment. infected, it is not to be taken lightly. Barrington says these For instance, some people think the placenta fails to release infections vary in severity. The result is strongly dependent on the because of low calcium, but low calcium is only one of many risk type of infection as well as the cow’s inability to handle it. factors — not the cause. He says that is one reason penicillin is a good choice — it is “We know that low vitamin E and/or selenium may also create effective against a wide variety of infections. “It works against the higher risk for retained placenta,” he notes. “Poor nutrition in regards anaerobes and gram-positive bacteria like Clostridia,” Barrington to trace minerals and negative energy balance may all be factors.” explains. “It is not as good against the gram negative bacteria like Lias says if producers start to see more than a few incidences E. coli, and this is why the ceftiofur antibiotics work very well.” of retained placenta without the common and logical causes, Antibiotic treatment will only be needed in a few cases, they should have their nutritional program evaluated. “Consult according to Daly. “If people worry about the rotten material with a nutritionist and see if vitamin and mineral levels in hanging out, they could trim that part off and leave the rest to the feed are where they need to be,” come out on its own,” he says.

It only lasts a short time in uterus after calving. “If we look at any normal cow that calves the animal’s system.

Squeezing week after calving, a very high proportion of these cows culture the uterus doesn’t help that connection deteriorate,” he says. positive,” Barrington explains. There is a big difference between Barrington agrees cows with a retained placenta usually have infection and disease, however. An important reason a cow doesn’t more uterine contractions than a normal cow, so it doesn’t really clear this infection within a week or so and becomes sick is that make sense to use oxytocin. If the uterus is contracting and her immune system is hindered for some reason. shrinking down on the placental tissue, it may be harder for it to “Having the placenta in there, if she hasn’t shed it, doesn’t pass through the cervix and on out. help,” he notes. “When those membranes start to break down, the “The body’s own immune system [and the cells within the placental tissue still in the uterus is irritating, and is also a great uterus that digest the inter-digitation, binding the placental tissues habitat for pathogens to thrive.

Causes Several things may cause a retained placenta, including factors affecting the individual animal as well as herd-based conditions. Infectious causes could include diseases that lead to abortion. Abortions can result in a retained placenta. Any time a cow calves prematurely — an aborted fetus, twins or a premature calf — the placenta generally does not come away normally. It takes time for the attachments to disintegrate and come loose later. Lias says there are a number of reasons a cow might calve early — an abortion, an infection, a toxic insult, a premature calf or twins. “Nutritional deficiencies can also be a cause,” he explains. “With dairy cows, especially, the cows that are low on calcium or have milk fever have a much higher incidence. Retained placenta has also been linked to vitamin A deficiency, vitamin E and selenium deficiency, and sometimes copper. There may be more nutritional causes than we know.” According to Barrington, the actual cause occurs at the cell level, involving malfunction in the normal turning loose of the tissue attachments between the maternal and fetal sides of the placenta. However, there are several risk factors that may adversely influence the normal process. “The exact mechanism for detachment is a bit unclear, but we know that the neutrophils [white blood cells] have to go into these attachment sites and release enzymes that help digest the two sides — the maternal side and the fetal side — so it can release,” he says. The tissues have to soften up and let go, and Barrington says there is a lot of misunderstanding about how this function works. Hereford.org

Health precautions for humans Jim Logan, Ph.D., Wyoming State Veterinarian, says several diseases can cause a retained placenta including Brucellosis. “Sometimes there’s no rhyme or reason that we can figure out regarding a retained placenta — it just happens,” he explains. “The key thing to be aware of is that it could be an infectious cause.” He encourages producers to keep in mind that precautionary measures when handling an infected cow or placenta are critical. If the cow was aborting because of Brucellosis, for instance, this disease can be spread to other animals and to humans who come into contact with the birth fluids or the aborted fetus or membranes. “Use protective gloves when handling dystocia or any kind of birth problem, or handling a placenta,” Logan advises. When the fetus is aborted or the placenta is shed, these tissues should always be properly disposed of rather than left lying there, in case it was an infectious situation. “Be aware of the possibility of zoonotic diseases that could potentially be spread from an aborted fetus or even from a live calf,” he says. “Any placenta — whether it’s retained or one you happen to find — it’s a good idea to properly dispose of it because the placenta can be a source of infection.” The placenta is also a good diagnostic tool. He says if there is a retained placenta, salvaging that tissue so a sample can be sent to the lab can be helpful. This sample might enable the lab to find bacterial or viral causes of abortion or illness in the newborn calf. “It’s wise to collect those membranes and keep the placenta as clean as you can in case your veterinarian recommends sending a sample for diagnosis,” he stresses.

Good Nutrition Vital for Pregnant Cows

Producers need to review their anticipated calving dates, cow body condition scores and cows’ diet.

D

mortality, compared with calves from dams fed high levels of nutrition.”

Ensure adequate body condition A separate study found that cows with inadequate body condition produced poorerquality colostrum, compared with cows in good body condition. Poor body condition resulted in a reduced ability to transfer immunity through colostrum to calves of underfed cows. Newborn calves need adequate colostrum because it contains antibodies and other proteins that protect calves from disease until their own immune system is totally functional. Studies also show that the need for good nutrition during pregnancy carries over to fertility the following breeding season. Cows that are thin at calving have a greater chance of not becoming pregnant the following breeding season compared with cows that calve in good body condition. Therefore, thin cows and heifers need to be on a greater plane of nutrition than older cows in good condition.

Different nutritional needs Dahlen recommends producers consider sorting heifers and thin cows into their own group for feeding if possible. If not, producers should try to spread feed out over a larger area to reduce the incidence of thin cows being pushed away from feed by older cows or cows in better condition. If facilities are available to feed in different groups, heifers and thin cows should be fed separately from mature cows. Producers should also keep temperature in mind, and protect cattle from wind and moisture to the extent possible. Even with heavy winter coats, nutrient requirements for cows begin to increase when the temperature is below the “lower critical temperature” of about 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Lower critical temperature is much greater if cattle are wet or exposed to the wind. For every degree below the lower critical temperature, energy requirements can increase by one to two percentage units of total digestible nutrients (TDN). This means the same 1,300-lb. cow that needed 12.5 lb. of TDN per day at a temperature of 18 degrees Fahrenheit may need up to 14.8 lb. of TDN per day at a temperature of 0 degrees Fahrenheit. However, cows have a limit on how much they can eat, so producers may have to increase the quality of the feed in addition to the quantity to ensure cows are meeting their requirements. “Evaluating the nutritional status of cows now and taking appropriate action will allow you to provide appropriate nutrients to get cows into good body condition at calving while encouraging the fetus to do exactly what it needs to do: grow, baby, grow,” Dahlen says.

ecisions a cattle producer makes about pregnant cow nutrition now can have major affects on calf health in the spring and cow fertility during the next breeding season. “The great majority of fetal growth [from 75 to more than 90%, depending on the source] occurs during the last three months of pregnancy, and nutrient needs and recommended feeding strategies for the cows also are changing accordingly,” says Carl Dahlen, North Dakota State University Extension Service beef cattle specialist. “To make sure you are on track with your winter feeding, have a good look at your anticipated calving dates, cow body condition scores and the diet the cows are receiving,” he advises. “Current protein and energy content of native pastures and/or crop residues likely are not suitable for cows calving in early to mid-spring. Supplement cattle accordingly, and remember the increased plane of nutrient needs the cows are experiencing.” As mature cows move from mid to late gestation, they need a 20% increase in crude protein intake and 16% increase in total digestible nutrient intake to keep up with increasing fetal growth. This need for additional nutrients is magnified once a cow calves and must produce milk for a calf. Although some producers argue that providing fewer nutrients during gestation will lead to lighter birthweights and, therefore, fewer calving difficulties, that isn’t always the result, according to Dahlen. “Unfortunately, the smaller calves were the only potential benefit of the low feeding level in several studies,” he says. “Cows fed the high level of nutrition actually had less calving difficulty, even with slightly bigger calves. “In addition, while calf survival at birth was similar between the groups, calf survival at weaning was much greater in cows fed the high levels of nutrition,” he adds. “Calves from dams fed the low levels of nutrition had more issues with scours and scours-related

For every degree below the lower critical temperature, energy requirements can increase by one to two percentage units of total digestible nutrients.

Calving

Maternal Maturity The critical leg of the journey from replacement heifer to mature cow. by Karla H. Jenkins, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cow-Calf Range Management Specialist

A

s the new year approaches, so does spring calving for most beef cattle producers. Spring also begins the most critical part of the journey for the replacement heifer becoming a cow. A spring calving replacement heifer with a target mature weight of 1,200 lb. is likely weighing about 950 lb. entering the last trimester of pregnancy and would need to gain about 2.0 lb. per day prior to calving even if she is in a moderate body condition. Producers need to remember that in the last trimester, at least half of that weight gain will be related to fetal growth and not actually contribute to the growth of the heifer herself. Feeding an ad libitum amount of hay containing 52% total digestible nutrients (TDN) and 8% crude protein (CP) along with 3.4 lb. of distillers’ grains would meet the crude protein needs of this heifer and her rumen undegradable protein needs. However, this diet is still slightly short on the energy this heifer needs. This inadequacy could be very concerning if the heifer is thinner than desired and weather conditions are particularly harsh. Blending in some higher quality hay or adding other energy feeds could improve the energy balance for this heifer.

Nutrition needs after calving Once the heifer calves and lactation starts, both her protein and energy needs will increase substantially. The very early springcalving heifer (February or March) is not likely going to have access to any green grass for a couple of months. If this now lactating heifer were fed the previously mentioned hay and 3.4 lb. of distillers’ grains, she would be well below the energy she requires. This is a critical situation for this cow. This is even more concerning if the turn out to green grass is delayed and/or the new mother is thinner than desired. Sometimes during calving, producers will have some green grass starting to become available to the cows. Assuming this now lactating heifer can find enough green grass to make up half of her diet, and the producer feeds the hay containing 52% TDN and 8% CP to make up the difference, this heifer is still slightly short on her energy needs. Supplying 2.2 lb. of distillers’ grains would help ensure this heifer’s needs were met. Additionally, supplying more nutrient dense supplemental forage would be sufficient. If enough green grass were available that she could consume green growing grass ad libitum, she could meet her needs with grass alone. Shortly after peak lactation, when nutrient needs are the highest, this heifer is asked to rebreed. Therefore, making sure her nutrient needs are being met just prior to calving through breeding is critical for her to remain in the herd. Checking feed resources for nutrient content prior to late gestation will help producers determine what needs to be fed to ensure the nutrient needs of these heifers are met. Assessing body condition score frequently will also allow producers to make necessary changes to the ration in a timely manner.

One of Nancy’s biggest joys in working for the AHA was building relationships with Hereford breeders across the country.

The End of an Era

Nancy Thomas retires from the American Hereford Association after 49 years. by Kayla Jennings

C

lick click. Click click. Sounds of a data keypunch system were all too familiar for employees of the American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) records department in 1968. As the years progressed, the records department transitioned significantly in method, location and name. Today, the American Hereford Association (AHA) even utilizes an online registry system. Just as the idea of a keypunch machine is foreign today, the concept of online registry had not yet been imagined 49 years ago. Employees who remember those days are few and far between. In fact, the last employee of that era retired Dec. 1, 2017. Nancy Thomas, a Kansas City, Mo., native has dedicated her life to serving Hereford breeders. Many breeders, as well as staff members, will miss her always ready to lend a helping hand. “Nancy really does mark the end of an era for AHA,” says Stacy Sanders, AHA director of

the records department. “She is one of those solid rocks who is very dedicated. We will miss her in our office.”

Early days

After Nancy graduated high school in 1967, she knew she wanted to find a job in the area. Following in her aunt’s footsteps, she became certified as a keypunch operator and sought out her first job with Sears. It was not long before other career opportunities caught her eye. Nancy says she heard about the opening at the APHA and applied for the data entry position without hesitation. She knew little about the cattle industry — having grown up in urban Kansas City — but she was eager to learn. After starting April 1, 1968, she remembers the intense learning curve fondly. “It has really come a long way from when I started,” she notes. “I can’t begin to tell you everything, but we had boxes upon boxes all over the floor and full filing cabinets when I came in ’68. It looked like a nightmare.” Since the APHA had recently split off from the AHA when Nancy started, she remembers sorting through many cards to put together full pedigrees on animals. Each animal had its own keypunch card with its information. She says she and her fellow workers Nancy’s 49 years were celebrated at the AHA office with many friends. would have to pull at

| January 2018

least 15 cards to put together one registration certificate. To put it into perspective, one lady could complete 15 certificates in one hour — that was fast. In 1974 the group of data entry ladies completed 204,000 certificates utilizing the keypunch system. As time progressed, so did the technology and the environment. The keypunch era came to a close, and the progress in data entry began. Soon after, the Association adopted the utilization of computers. Nancy says the first computer screens were so small it was almost impossible to see what was being entered. While many are reluctant to changes, Nancy always viewed herself as progressive. “I really like using the computers the way they are now,” she says. “I caught on fast. To me, it was wonderful. It was important to me to understand how to utilize the new programs, so I could explain it to the breeders.” It was this desire to understand and most effectively adopt the new technology that made Nancy unique. With every new technology, she was the first to ask questions and to learn it. “Nancy is always someone who welcomes change, and she is adaptable,” Sanders says. “She has seen a lot of changes, and she is very curious about how and why things work. She is not satisfied to take it at face value. If we ever needed to test a new program, she was always involved with that because she was always the one figuring out how things worked.” Sanders says she has had a hand in everything from implementing Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) to creating the American Beef Records Association (ABRA) service. He says she is very meticulous and accurate, making it evident her work is always done well. Aside from adopting new data tracking technologies, Nancy had the opportunity to see breed improvement progress and the merging of the APHA and the AHA in 1995.

Everlasting memories In her 49 years, Nancy has had the unique opportunity to see generations of Hereford breeders grow. She recalls visiting with producers about not only their cattle but also their kids and lives. Those relationships have made this position more than just a job for her. “You would think you would get bored with the same thing over and over again, but everyday it is something new,” she explains. “You get to talk to the breeders and really get to know them personally.” She recalls a specific phone conversation recently when she asked a breeder how old his son was. The breeder said his son was 13 and reminded her he had been

calling Nancy at the office since he was 13 himself. For her, seeing generations of Hereford breeders grow up has been truly special. Sometimes, Nancy even had the opportunity to meet particularly interesting people in the office. In fact, the Alabama band lead singer, Randy Owen, registered his Hereford cattle with Nancy. She remembers the band members coming by the office to visit any time they were in the area to check on their Hereford records. “Randy was standing with Teddy Gentry one day while I was working, and he said, ‘don’t you wish you could go that fast?’ That was funny because I didn’t think I was that fast at typing,” she laughed. “They must not had seen Dorothy Bower, my supervisor — she was a really fast typist.” Aside from Hereford breeders, Nancy always enjoyed the people she worked with. When she was still with the APHA, she fondly remembers teaming up with the field staff to compete against other employees to see who could recruit the most new members each year. “It was really fun to try to persuade breeders to join the Association,” she remembers.

Exciting times ahead Outside of work, Nancy is involved with Order of the Eastern Star — a Masonic appendant body. The organization promotes leadership amongst women. Its members take trips and take part in several other community activities. Now that her time at Hereford has come to an end, she hopes to increase her participation with them and to travel. “I want to go see some of the friends I have made, and some of the people I have known for years,” she notes. “I also plan to travel with the Eastern Star to Utah and Texas, and just enjoy life.” She says she has been invited to several farms and ranches over the years, so this is the time to take people up on those visits. She has made many friends over the past 49 years, and she looks forward to spending the time to visit them all across the country. Stacy says he knows the environment of the office will be different without her around, but he and the rest of the staff are excited for her in her new chapter. “We certainly wish her the best and welcome her back to visit at any time,” Stacy says. “The AHA wants her to realize she has a ton of friends in our members that want to thank her also. We want her to know she always has a home at AHA.” Leaving the AHA after many years is bittersweet for her. “I will miss all the people in the office,” she says. “I will really miss talking to all my friends — the breeders — and making new friends.” Hereford.org

Certified Hereford Beef Meets Consumer Demand A panel of industry experts shed light onto the positive attributes present in CHB® products. by Kayla Jennings

C

ertified Hereford Beef (CHB®) has grown to be one of the most highly recognized branded-beef programs in the country to date. CHB products can be found from coast-to-coast in restaurants and grocery stores and through other food retail avenues. Alex Tinkle, Merchants Foodservice category manager, says it is one of the best and most competitive tools they have to generate business in an aggressive arena. Merchants has approximately 75% of its inventory invested in CHB to satisfy the consumers, who demand consistency, quality, yield and value in their product. “At any given time I am competing against 65 to 85 different beef programs,” he notes. “I am competing within the southeast from Louisiana to North Carolina — we cover a quarter of the country.” With that type of competition prevalent across the country, it is exciting to see CHB rising to the top for those engaged in the beef industry from packer to end user. Restaurant owner and chef Scott Ellinger, The

Brass Rail Steakhouse, O’Fallon, Mo., says implementation of the program has been essential to remaining competitive with other restaurants in the area. “As soon as I found Certified Hereford Beef and cut it against what we were already selling, it made perfect sense — there is no comparison,” he explains. “One hundred percent of what I have in my refrigerator is Certified Hereford Beef.”

Why CHB? Mike Ritcher, Coborn’s Inc. senior meat director, says his company was seeking a program that would differentiate it from all the other packers. “I could have taken a black-hided program, because there are plenty of them out there,” he explains, “But that is the problem, there are too many out there.” When he visited a ranch in South Dakota that supplies Hereford cattle for CHB, he remembered the consistency of the cattle drawing him into the program. After Coborn’s tested the product against others, the company soon found it was

more than consistency. He says the tenderness and flavor were superior, as well. “It was the best thing I ever did,” he recalls. “It differentiated us from other competitors without a doubt.” In Tinkle’s situation, as a distributer, he is tasked with convincing retailers to make a change by adopting the CHB program. For him marketing is a huge piece of the program success in the retail setting — and it is no easy feat. “Getting a branded-beef program into a distributor like mine is a huge undertaking,” he explains. “But if you give them the right program, the payoff is substantial.” Tinkle says the marketing, paired with a consistent product, has been that payoff for his company. Similarly, Ellinger says the consistency and head-tohead cutting with other products were the selling points for his restaurant. He notes a positive influx in his customer base after the introduction of CHB.

Consistency is key As consistency is obviously a large selling point, CHB has 10 carcass specifications that

ensure consistent quality. One of those indicates a ribeye must be between 10 and 16 square inches. Ritcher, Tinkle and Ellinger all agree the size specification is critical to cater to today’s consumer. “Over the years, the consumer has changed,” Ritcher explains. “The habits have become more portion-driven.” In response to the change, his company began offering smaller steaks, which paid off. “In the end, we sell more tonnage,” he notes. “We sell more units, and we definitely satisfy the customer. Then we have them returning to the meat counter to buy beef.” Because the ribeye is indicative of the rest of the animal, the size specification assures uniformity in the remainder of the cuts. Any lack in the promised size can result in a monetary and confidence loss for the distributor aiming to sell the product to retailers. Tinkle says if the box he sells does not comply with the specification, not only does he get a negative phone call, but the buyer may also send back the product. “It goes back to that consistency,” he notes. “The expectation is, even though this is an agricultural product, to be perfect.” At the end of the day, all changes are led by consumer demand. Ellinger’s unique perspective as a restaurant owner allows him to see what consumers want firsthand. He, too, is seeing a demand for smaller ribeyes. However, that doesn’t discount the value in uniformity. “For the restaurant, the most important thing is consistency,” he notes. “Once you get one customer, you want to lock them away to make sure they don’t leave then start work on the next one.” It is evident after hearing from all sectors in the industry, the CHB program provides a consistently high-quality product, which is beneficial from all industry segments. In order to continue to spur the increase in sales with CHB, all panelists agreed — producers must continue to “Demand the Brand.”

Industry experts representing foodservice and retail segments discussed what happens after Hereford beef enters into the food supply.

Cost Control Benchmarking your herd to improve profitability. by Randy Saner, Nebraska Extension Educator, beef.unl.edu

B

enchmarking your herd can be an important tool to look at cost and revenues compared to those of other beef producers. Producers can look at where their expenses are high compared to other similar cow-calf producers. Benchmarking can provide better feedback the more similar the operation. Once the high cost category or reduced revenues are identified, form a strategy to overcome the challenge. Questions to consider are::

1) Can I change price?

2) Can I change quantity, i.e., pounds?

3) If I change quantity, will it increase costs?

Remember the simple equation for profit equals total revenue minus total costs. When producers look at costs, feed costs are the largest costs they deal with. Table 1 has Nebraska and South Dakota feed costs per cow in 2015 for 34 farms. Other significant cost for beef cow-calf operations are repairs, veterinary expenses, breeding fees and total direct expenses. Table 2 shows some of these direct expenses. Overhead expenses can also have an effect on profitability. These would include building and machinery depreciation, hired labor, property taxes, farm insurance, interest and miscellaneous items (Table 3). Table 4 contains the cost of production per hundredweight (cwt.) of calf produced, as well as some of the production parameters for the different profitability groups. Cost control is the key to profitability of a cow-calf operation. In some cases, a producer may want to spend more; an example would be protein and minerals. The low profit producers spent the least amount in this area. The cowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutrient requirements must be met in order for adequate reproductive performance. The low profitability group had a higher culling rate. Notice the high profitability producers spent less on most costs and received a higher price per cwt. than the low profitability producers. These data were generated from the FINBIN farm financial database at the University of Minnesota and can be found at finbin.umn.edu/.

Our livelihood depends on offering bulls/ females to the commercial cow-calf customer. Our bulls are built on the tenets of profitable cattle production: fertility, calving ease, growth, carcass merit and sustainable cow size with longevity. We recognize that cattlemen have many choices of breeds and breeders to source their input genetics from. To compete in the commercial cow-calf world, our bulls are genetically designed, environmentally pressured and finally selected to be profit leaders. Hereford.org

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

Enjoy the Ride Recently, I was on a flight from Birmingham, Ala., to Chicago when the plane came upon some rather strong turbulence. You know the kind — it starts with just a bounce or two and then evolves into a seemingly neverending roller coaster. Your stomach begins to drop. You begin to grasp the armrests just a bit too tightly. Will this plane make a safe landing? Will this craziness ever end? Just get me off this plane. But then the plane makes it through to the other side, and the flight levels out again.

When the plane touches down, a few folks erupt in applause, and everyone breathes a bit easier. A friend of mine recently shared that her baby enjoyed the thrill of a turbulence-filled flight. To that sweet baby, it was fun. I have absolutely been there, haven’t we all? When I was in my 20s, I wouldn’t have worried a bit on that flight. What could go wrong? Crazy things like that don’t happen to people I know. We’re invincible. But then, one of my dear friends — one of the bridesmaids in our wedding

— found herself on US Airways flight 1549 on Jan. 15, 2009. The infamous flight Captain “Sully” Sullenberger landed in the Hudson River after a flock of geese caused an engine stall and a necessary emergency landing. Then I realized, those things can happen to folks I know, and they can happen to me. Life certainly took on a different twist for all who know and love that dear friend. I promise you — life definitely took on a new look for her. As I was in the midst of that flight a few weeks ago, I saw the definite

correlation between the turbulence of that plane and the crazy rides we find ourselves on during our daily lives. It’s not always life or death. Most of the time, it’s not. When it comes to family safety, or even to the noncritical issues like our children’s grades, speech contests or performance in the showring, worry and the fear of what could go wrong creep in more often than I would care to admit. When I was a kid entering that showring or stepping onto the stage for a speech contest, I didn’t worry about what could go wrong. I just went out there and had fun. Sure, I wanted to win, but that pit-in-the-stomach worry just didn’t happen. Now that I’m an adult, watching my children at the halter in the ring and seeing them take their position for their speech, I worry maybe a little too much. I now know things don’t always go as planned and life isn’t always fair. But when my child steps up to do his or her thing, it’s truly out of my hands. The judge’s decision is out of my hands, too. So what’s up with the worry? I recently listened to a podcast about anxiety, and the speaker correlated the process of worrying to rocking in a rocking chair. Both can keep you busy, but neither will get you anywhere. If worry is a concern for you, what can you do? According to various research on the topic, a few ideas continually rise to the top. Get some sleep. Lying awake at night will only lead to more exhaustion the next morning and a less-than-sunny outlook. Take a notepad to bed and write down your concerns. This act can remove those concerns from your mind and help the sleep to come. Stop with the what-ifs. Imaginary “what-ifs” can consume our thoughts but can rarely be solved. Plus, they rarely come to fruition. Decide if the problem is solvable. If so, begin brainstorming solutions. Worry does not lead to results. Action does. Embrace uncertainty. None of us knows exactly what the future holds, and not knowing is OK. Uncertainty is neither a positive nor a negative. It is what it is. Embrace that some things are just out of your control, and be at peace with it. The life of a show parent is a competitive one. No question about it. But once we learn to embrace the turbulence as part of the ride, the journey is sure to be a smoother one. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill.

From the Field New Arrival Dalton Louis Dorran, Calgary, was born Nov. 3. Dalton is welcomed into this world by his parents, Ryan and Cassie of Didsbury, Alberta, who own and operate Dorran Marketing Inc. Dalton weighed 5 lb., 15 oz.

In the News The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President Craig Uden released a statement

Dec. 6, 2017, in response to the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) revision of the United States Standards for Grades of Carcass Beef (beef standards). “Today’s update to the beef standards will benefit U.S. beef producers in every segment of our industry,” Uden says. “By basing carcass quality grades on the most current scientific data available, we will improve grading accuracy and ensure that producers are getting maximum value out of each head. We are grateful to Secretary Perdue and the staff at USDA for implementing this decision, which

demonstrates their continued commitment to supporting American cattlemen and women.” Following a petition led by NCBA, USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service announced Dec. 6, 2017, that dentition and documentation of actual age will now be used as additional methods for classifying maturity of carcasses. Dentition is a method for measuring the age of cattle based on their teeth. Cattle with fewer than three incisors are classified as less than 30 months of age (MOA). Three or more incisors indicate cattle are more than 30 MOA. Prior to the change, a significant portion of cattle under 30 MOA were

incorrectly deemed ineligible for USDA quality grades because of limitations in the process used to assess their age. Dentition and/or documentation of actual age provides a more accurate assessment method. Ultimately, this change will ensure more carcasses are eligible for USDA quality grades and allow producers to maximize the value of each head. A beef industry working group composed of representatives from the cow-calf, feeder and packer segments conservatively estimated that incorrect classification of carcasses cost the industry nearly $60 million annually. Carcasses incorrectly classified were sold at an estimated discount of nearly $275 per head. Dentition assessments have long been used in U.S. federally inspected plants with effective USDA Food Safety Inspection Service oversight to meet the export requirements of many U.S. trading partners.

Understanding Your Hereford World Subscription T 1 2 he American Hereford Association (AHA) proudly offers the Hereford World, a publication for progressive, profitminded Hereford breeders and commercial cattlemen who make their living in the beef industry.

tabloid issues. There are three ways to receive the Hereford World.

call the AHA or visit Hereford.org for a form.

Paid subscription

Hereford enthusiasts may receive the Hereford World through a paid subscription, which is $35 a year for second class mail. This subscription is not included in the annual adult or junior dues. An individual can be a member of AHA or National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) and not receive the Hereford World. Please note that Missouri residents must pay sales tax, which is currently $3.36 for second class. A first class subscription is $70 per year and Missouri sales tax will be $6.72 cents on a one-year subscription. A foreign first class subscription is $110 and second class is $60. Paid subscribers receive all 11 issues and may choose a one-year subscription up to a three-year subscription. There is no discount offered to multi-year subscribers. To subscribe to the Hereford World,

Free full subscription

AHA members paying the $100 member service fee receive a free 11-issue subscription to the Hereford World. Contact the AHA records department at 816842-3757 for more information on the member service fee.

Free tabloid subscription

The AHA offers a free tabloid subscription for the January, February, August and October Hereford World issues. A subscription card must be received by the AHA office in order to subscribe. Simply fill out the postage-paid card and drop it in the mail for a free three-year subscription to the four tabloid issues. The card can be found on cover wraps of the four issues or by contacting AHA field staff or the AHA office. To re-subscribe, send in another card. This card will not suffice for

renewing any paid subscription. Please note a free tabloid subscription is not available outside the United States.

Additional notes To know when to renew, take a look at the mailing label. At the top of the mailing label is your member/ account number. To the right of the member/account number is the expiration date of your current subscription. If a renewal is in place (for example, if you paid your member service fee) the date that shown will be the expiration of the current year’s subscription. Also, watch for stickers on the Hereford World received. Two stickers will remind you that your subscription is nearing expiration. The first sticker will state, “Renew now, next to last issue,” and the last sticker will read, “Renew now, last issue.” If you are unsure of your subscription status or have any other questions, please call the AHA office.

As we congratulate Nancy Midla, the Pennsylvania Outstanding Woman in Agriculture for 2017, we reflect on the impact of high performing females at FLAT STONE LICK. Because Nancy does the calving… our heifers calve low birth weight, low problem. Our cows have ideal udders and strong maternal instincts… or Nancy won’t let them stay. Because Nancy does the AI breeding… our cows cycle and calve within 365 days. Because Nancy does the harvesting… our cows are good foragers who need minimal added nutrition during the cold months. When Nancy says it’s time… the boys fall into line.

At FLAT STONE LICK, we know the necessity of easy doing cattle and we respect the folks who manage them.

We believe:

• that selection and breeding can improve successes • that the opportunity for success is critical to young people who have an interest in farming • and that our collective future depends on these young people We applaud Nancy’s efforts over the last 30 years to educate non-farm people about where their food comes from. The challenge now is to educate breeders about the advantages of our Hereford cattle.
