Hereford breeders around the world are capitalizing on the breed’s hardiness, longevity and adaptability. A young Hereford breeder experiences a trip of a lifetime to the World Hereford Conference. One man’s foray into the export business proves connections are everything when it comes to selling genetics internationally. Food security, urbanization and agriculture’s image impact us all.

Opportunities for live cattle genetics are ripe around the globe but do require some extra effort. Transporting cattle internationally has many benefits, but producers must be cognizant of the challenges.

As we enter the summer months, most reports show that the crops are in the ground and hay is getting put up in most areas with few issues. Moisture has been good to plentiful and feedstuffs should be solid for the next few months. I am sure that most have completed spring breeding and have turned the bulls in with cows. Hereford membership has seen another good sale season with solid averages and more cattle getting sold in most cases. As each of you made breeding decisions this spring, I hope that you found the additional runs of the genetic evaluation useful. It is key as we move forward to get data into the evaluation as quickly as possible. Of course, for the proven bulls, it is less important. However, for those looking to make quicker generational turns with younger genetics, it is imperative that we add data as they are submitted to give the best and most informed evaluation to make genetic progress.

Making Strides

Cattlemen in Uruguay focus production mainly on grass-fed beef.

10

/ July 2016

With this objective in mind, I would encourage breeders to get data submitted at each stage of production as soon as possible. As we move forward with the exchange from our current genetic evaluation to the new BOLT software, we will have the capability to move to even more frequent runs of the evaluation. As the summer progresses, I challenge breeders to identify ways to submit more harvest data on calves. This end-product information, when added to the genetic evaluation, has such an enormous effect on end-product traits and will allow breeders to identify genetics that are demanded by the feedyard and packer. Of course, I would not encourage any breeder to single-trait select. The progress Hereford has made to identify maternal genetics that fit the commercial industry has been unprecedented over the past few years; however, the consumer is the ultimate buyer, and quality will continue to add value to the end product. The American Hereford Association (AHA) young sire tests have allowed us to collect a great amount of carcass data, but if breeders feed some cattle or have customers with calves with known sires and can provide information on end-product performance, we can use this data in the evaluation. Recently I attended a meeting at the U.S Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Clay Center, Neb. This meeting was attended by both pork and beef industry leaders, and we

heard about current research being done at MARC and discussed opportunities. In both industries, there is still plenty of work to be done in the areas of genomics, animal health, food safety, efficiency, reproduction and all other areas that affect profitability for both industries. All of this work needs to be done in a manner that is healthful for the environment and answers the call that consumers have for animal welfare. In April, I was fortunate to join a strong delegation of U.S. Hereford breeders at the World Hereford Conference hosted by the Uruguay Hereford Society. It was a great opportunity to meet with cattlemen from around the world to discuss issues of not only Hereford breeders but to hear about issues facing the entire beef industry. We enjoyed some great technical meetings and presentations along with country reports during the conference. We watched a great Hereford show — both haltered and pen shows. The post-conference tours were exceptional and provided a clear picture of how Hereford cattle are raised in Uruguay. It was very clear that producers in Uruguay still maintain a focus on grass-fed beef, and during our tours, we saw a lot of U.S. genetics represented. The food and hospitality was first class, and on behalf of the AHA, my thanks and congratulations go out to the Uruguay Hereford Society. HW Hereford.org

The American Dream

12

/ July 2016

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays every year. What’s not to love about great fellowship, barbecue and an amazing fireworks show? This tradition that takes place each year was made possible by our “Founding Fathers” that signed the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming freedom from Great Britain. This independence had to be defended, and through loyal patriots giving it all during the Revolutionary War, the United States of America was born. Along with this birth came the American flag — the red, white and blue — the symbol of strength and unity for our country and something all Americans should be inspired by and have a deep sense of pride for. A lot has surely taken place since 1776, and as cattlemen you have seen some dramatic changes in type and what is considered the ideal, not to mention the evolution of expected progeny differences (EPDs) that were made possible through performance testing and now on to a genomic era that is giving us the most accurate information on potential sires and dams as genomicenhanced (GE-) EPDs. This progress, along with artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET), has allowed breeders to capitalize on superior genetics. We’re in a beef business that wants it all, and because of these technology advancements, whether you’re a small or a big operation, you can succeed. Really, it’s the American dream.

But ultimately it’s the consumer that drives the bottom line, whether it’s a grocery store selling Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®), your longtime bull customer at the annual sale or a feedlot that bought a load of Hereford feeder steers, they want it all. In each one of these cases, the customer is looking for the best product available at an affordable price, and if you can pass on a profit to that individual and create a desirable experience, you’ll have a customer for a lifetime. In knowing this basic marketing strategy and realizing that the commercial cow herd holds the key to success for future growth, the American Hereford Association (AHA) recognizes the opportunity to provide service to you as seedstock producers. Hereford breeders, as well as the AHA, must focus past the bull sale and provide customer service and tools to those producers to help market their product. Not only will these tools help commercial producers market their product, but they will also help Hereford breeders build brand recognition for their product.

$CHB Program On the next page you will find information on the $CHB Program. This program can serve as a marketing tool for both you and your customers. What I like about it is that it’s market driven by genetic improvement. There is no denying the strides Hereford has made in

terms of performance and end-product merit. These, along with the conversion advantage that Hereford has in the feedlot, should allow you as breeders to capitalize on this program. What we need from you is to share this information with your customer base and to return the form to us. We will then look up the bull battery of your commercial customer and simply average his $CHB index. If his bull battery falls into the top 20% of the breed for $CHB, that operation will be recognized with the logo. This information, along with the producer’s feeder cattle’s weight, vaccination, weaning information, etc. will be e-mailed to our growing list of feedlot buyers. Likewise, this information will be available for customers to use at local sale barns and video auctions. In order for this program to work, you as seedstock breeders must transfer ownership of the bulls to your customers. This transfer will be the only way that we can verify that the commercial producer owns them. This program will be a great way to assist cattlemen who are spending top dollar at sales for progressive genetics but will also help educate additional buyers on the reasons to include this type of genetics in their herd. So as your neighbors gather around the grill for another celebration of America’s independence, share your story and commitment to the Hereford breed and let them know about this program that can add value to their cattle. This form can be found at HerefordFeederCattle.com. HW Hereford.org


To qualify for the

$CHB Program,

the following requirements must be met: • Sired by registered Hereford bulls with transferred ownership. • Hereford bull battery avg. $CHB index* value ranking in top 20%. Percentile $CHB

* Certified Hereford Beef Index ($CHB): This is a terminal sire index that is built on a production system where Hereford bulls are used on British-cross cows with a focus on gain and end product merit.

Please select all that apply from the following options**:

If cattle meet required $CHB threshold, distribute information.

Distribute information, regardless of $CHB ranking. Return results to producer for internal use only.

**Information form with EPD rankings will be returned to producer, regardless of distribution preference. If the producer chooses, this form will be distributed to a growing list of cattle feeders and will be listed on For questions or interest in the program, please contact Trey Befort at the American Hereford Association, 816-842-3757.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met in Kansas City, Mo., April 14-15, 2016. The following are the highlights of the meeting: Finance and Audit Chief Investment Officer at United Missouri Bank David Mathews gave a performance report on the current investment policy adopted by the AHA Board of Directors. Mathews reported that the labor market is expanding, the housing market is better, manufacturing is getting better and in this election year, the stock market should get stronger in the second half of the year. However, interest rates are still lowering and the markets are very soft with only a 2% growth in gross domestic product.

Breed Improvement A review was given on the progress of updating the profit ($) indexes with new economic figures and additional traits. The timeline to release these updates will coincide with the release of the new genetic evaluation software, BOLT. The committee recommended the updates be reviewed by scientists and breeders. Staff shared the progress of BOLT including the automation of data extraction from AHA’s database ILR2, the updating of genetic parameters, the inclusion of genotypes and the new configuration of the evaluation into smaller groups of traits. The staff reported the more frequent runs of the current genetic evaluation have gone well. Breeders have become more comfortable with the release of updated expected progeny differences (EPDs). The flow of data extraction, run of the evaluation and loading of updated data have been seamless. AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell shared that he and Director of Commercial Programs Trey Befort have had meetings with large feedlot operations and video marketing groups to develop a strategy for identifying and documenting Herefordinfluenced feeder cattle. AHA staff reported they are working with GeneSeek to develop a strategy to make DNA testing more affordable and to work toward creating a bundled price for both genotyping and registration. As the AHA moves forward with the new genetic evaluation, the Board says it will be important to genotype entire calf crops in order to properly identify the genomic effect.

Marketing and Communications It was reported the new national ad campaign, “He wants it All” has been placed and that the videos developed with Jess Herbers have had more than 2,000 views. Graphic Arts, Topeka, Kan., will make arrangements with chef Scott Ellinger to do a photo shoot and interview in order to develop the final ad of the series to be released in the fall of 2016. Terri Barber shared some statics with the Board that showed the impact of the Jess Herbers ad in BEEF. It was shared that the ad was seen by slightly more readers and that 12% more readers found it more useful than similar ads. It was announced that Kaylen Baker and Katy Holdener will join the AHA staff on May 19 as the new marketing and communications coordinators. They both graduated from Oklahoma State University. It was shared with the Board that a short and long term marketing and communications strategy will be developed including social media, cattle and industry meetings, website design and Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) point of sale material. The Board directed the staff to develop a plan and budget for a strategic planning meeting in the spring of 2017.

Show and Sale Curtis Curry moved and Dave Bielema seconded the motion to require all exhibitors at the 2017 National Western Stock Show to have all bulls born on or before Dec. 31, 2015, be accompanied by a positive semen test result and that all females from the intermediate division or older be confirmed pregnant by a licensed veterinarian’s statement. These requirements must be met by all cattle exhibiting at the show. The motion passed by a majority vote. Terri Barber moved and Kyle PÊrez seconded the motion to require all live cattle sold through an AHA national sale to have a DNA profile completed before each sale. The motion passed unanimously.

Herford Publications Inc. (HPI) Staff reported that the business trend has been good and that they have seen an increase in Creative Services projects and Hereford World advertising. Editor Julie Mais reported that the July Hereford World will have an international theme for editorial content. The Hereford Handbook, an annual feature of the July Hereford World, will be revamped so it can be used more for a member service piece. Mais also reported the Hereford World staff will begin a redesign with a debut set for the July 2017 issue. The last redesign for the Hereford World was in 2006. HPI Production Manager Caryn Vaught and Mais reported the HPI summer intern will be Kayla Wilkins from Texas Tech University.

AHA offers blood cards for members to submit DNA testing samples The AHA has announced that Hereford breeders may now submit DNA samples using a blood card for DNA testing. AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell says the blood card offers advantages. “Breeders will find utilizing blood cards will be more convenient since there is no age restriction on taking a sample,” he says. “They can get a DNA test on a calf at a much younger age.”

Previously, the preferred method for DNA testing was submitting an animal’s hair sample. To collect a good hair sample, Bedwell says the calves should be at least three to four months of age. “Now, breeders can take a blood sample when it’s most fitting for them whether that be when they tag, brand, vaccinate, etc.” Bedwell also touts that this method will allow calves to be registered more accurately. Producers may use DNA testing to parentage verify an animal before registering it when the sire of the animal is in question or to test for genetic abnormalities. Animals do not have to be registered prior to a DNA test, but they must at least be recorded at AHA as an unregistered animal. This process gives them a unique registration number that is used to create a barcode for each kit. The decision to register the animal can be made once the DNA results are available to the breeder. Hereford breeders are still required to first request a DNA submission form, also referred to as a DNA kit, by contacting the AHA customer service team. To obtain a DNA continued on page 18...

GeneSeek Inc., located in Lincoln, Neb., continues to be the AHA’s official DNA testing lab. Submitting a blood card DNA sample — To submit a blood card DNA sample, record the animal’s name and ID on the DNA blood card. Next, the sample can be

The card has a blotting paper section containing a circle. Saturate the circle with just enough blood to fill the circle without making the card soggy.

AHA hires Baker and Holdener as new marketing and communications coordinators The AHA recently welcomed new hires Kaylen Baker and Katy Holdener as marketing and communications coordinators. Both graduated from Oklahoma State University (OSU) in May with bachelor’s degrees in agricultural communications and assumed their roles at AHA headquarters on May 19. Baker is originally from Yukon, Okla., and comes to AHA with a wealth of communications experience. She has worked as an intern for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry; the National Pork Board; the American Farm Bureau Federation and the Oklahoma FFA Association. She was also an Oklahoma state FFA officer and an OSU Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow president. Baker explains she is looking forward to her new position working with Hereford producers. “I’m very excited to join the American Hereford Association and Certified Hereford Beef in the communications department,” Baker Kaylen Baker says. “There are so many wonderful people within the Hereford breed, and I am looking forward to serving them in this position.” Holdener grew up in Hughson, Calif., and also brings an abundance of communications skill with her. She comes from a livestock background and judged livestock at Redlands Community College in El Reno, Okla., before transferring to OSU. While at Redlands, she was a member of the 2014 National Champion Livestock Judging Team. Since being at OSU, she has interned with Crook County Fairgrounds in Oregon, the Oklahoma Youth Expo and OSU’s College of Human Sciences. Holdener was also active in the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow at OSU. She notes her enthusiasm for her new role. Katy Holdener “I am extremely excited to join the AHA and Certified Hereford Beef team,” Holdener says. “The Hereford breed has such a rich history in the cattle industry, and the AHA has done a tremendous job of improving genetic standards and representing Hereford producers across the country. I am excited to have the opportunity to promote the work of both organizations and be able to visit with the cattlemen and women who make the breed what it is today.” As marketing and communication coordinators, Baker and Holdener will coordinate marketing and promotion for both the AHA and Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®). We are very excited to welcome Kaylen and Katy as marketing and communications coordinators,” says Jack Ward, AHA executive vice president. “Their skills, knowledge and energy will help us share with the industry all that AHA and CHB has to offer cattlemen and consumers.

and leave the card to dry at room temperature for approximately 12 hours. When the card is dry, open the lid and insert the card into the bottom slit for storage or shipping. Tape the dried blood card to the DNA submission form. DNA blood cards sent to GeneSeek without a DNA submission form will not be accepted for testing. The DNA sample is then ready to be mailed in an envelope to GeneSeek. Results of the DNA tests are made available within three to four weeks from the time the lab receives and acknowledges the DNA sample.

Early bird fall inventory deadline — July 15 Members participating in the Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) system can turn in their 2016 fall herd inventory by July 15 and receive a 25-centper-head discount on every female maintained on their fall inventory. Remember, the herd inventory should reflect females expected to calve in the 2016 fall calving

season. The fall herd inventory is not a list of the entire herd, just cows bred to calve from July 1 to Dec. 31, 2016. Replacement heifers will not appear on the inventory until they’re at least 18 months of age. It’s important to update the herd inventory prior to each calving season because in order to record a calf with performance data in the Whole Herd TPR system, the

How to update your 2016 fall cow herd inventory on MyHerd Follow the steps below to update and submit your cow herd inventory using MyHerd.org. 1) Log into MyHerd.org and click on “to-do list” task labeled “2016 Fall Cow Herd Inventory Update.” 2) Review the cow herd inventory. Remember, the purpose of the cow herd inventory is to enroll the females in your herd expected to calve in the fall calving season. • Mark females as “NS (Next season)” if they’re bred to calve in the spring 2017 calving season. • Mark young females as “NE (Non-exposed)” if they haven’t been exposed to breeding conditions. • Report a disposal code and date for females no longer active within your herd. • Report a reproductive status for active females in the herd not expected to calve in the season. • Add new or additional females to the inventory; provide their registration number and assign a herd ID. • Review each herd ID, and make corrections. Each female must have a unique ID, and it cannot be repeated within the herd. A herd ID is a short individual identification comprised of a maximum of six letters, numbers or both. Herd IDs are used in place of long registration numbers to speed calf recording. 3) When the cow inventory list is up-to-date, click the “Submit job now to bill inventory?” button. 4) Once the button is clicked, the inventory is submitted to the American Hereford Association and the inventory charges are billed. Note: If your inventory has already been submitted and billed, the button “Submit job now to bill inventory?” won’t be displayed on the 2016 fall cow herd inventory page. HW

Sept. 1 — final fall inventory deadline Fall inventories turned in after Sept. 1 will incur an additional $2 per head surcharge on each female maintained on inventory.

Whole Herd TPR FAQs Q: I sold a cow and she keeps showing up on my inventory. Why didn’t she automatically come off when I transferred her? A: If a female or male is listed on your inventory and is no longer in your possession, then a proper disposal code and date must be reported to remove the animal from your inventory. When a female or male is sold with papers, AHA staff does not automatically remove the animal from your herd inventory because they are not certain if you plan to register future offspring. If you would like to remove the animal, use the disposal code “T sold with papers,” to remove the animal from your inventory. Q: I have fall ET calves to register, and I do not own the donor dam. Do I need to add the donor dam to my fall inventory? A: No, you do not have to add the donor dam to your inventory. However, a recipient cow inventory fee for each ET calf will be billed if the calf is recorded with birth performance information (birth weight). If birth performance information isn’t reported, a recipient inventory fee won’t be billed. Q: Can a multi-owned dam be on my inventory and another current owner’s inventory in the same season? A: Yes, multi-owned females should be kept on inventory if an owner plans to register calves out of them. HW

“CHB Bites” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program happenings. You can also follow CHB on Facebook at facebook.com/CertifiedHerefordBeef.

Sysco St. Louis achieves two million lb. sold award Sysco St. Louis began its partnership with Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) LLC in June 2014. It sold its first one million lb. of CHB in less than one year and continues to set records of growing and developing the brand in eastern Missouri and southwestern Illinois. Sysco St. Louis is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Sysco Corporation, the largest marketer and distributor of foodservice products. It operates 194 locations throughout the United States, the Bahamas, Canada, Ireland and Northern Ireland. Sysco distributes a full line of food products and a wide variety of non-food products to both independent and chain restaurant customers and other “away from home” locations, such as healthcare and educational facilities. Locally focused, the broadline operating companies are able to provide hands-on customer service. Sysco strives to be its customers’ most valuable and trusted business partner, while marketing and delivering great products with exceptional service. July 2016 marks the two-year anniversary of partnership with the CHB program. Sysco St. Louis has surpassed the two million pounds sold award and continues to grow the brand at an advanced pace. Vice president of sales, Justin Woodard, states, “The Certified Hereford Beef brand is an excellent product that performs consistently for our customers. The program’s genetic and stringent specifications result in a superior dining experience for our customers’ guests.” CHB LLC values customers like Sysco St. Louis that believe in the brand and continue to develop the program through exceptional customer service.

Adams Fairacre Farms continues to grow the CHB brand Adams Fairacre Farms began as a roadside farm stand in 1919 and now has four farm market locations in New York. The company is most widely known for the level of service it provides to its customers in the Hudson Valley. Adams Fairacre Farms sold commodity beef for many years. It began a mission to find a premium protein offering that allowed it a point of differentiation for its customers. The partnership between Adams Fairacre Farms and CHB LLC began as a result of this quest. “The breed has a long-standing history and offers consistency in flavor and tenderness,” says Bob DeWitt, meat department manager for Adams Fairacre Farms. CHB is a premium product that is superior in quality and value and in collaboration with the breeders of America, continues to improve. “The result of this partnership has been simply amazing for us,” DeWitt says. “We now sell more beef than ever in our 100-year history and there is a loyalty to this program that our customers have had an overwhelming response to.” CHB LLC values retail customers like Adams Fairacre Farms who also have a long standing history of excellence and continue to grow and create loyalty to the brand.

National Beef Packing Value-Added Program Agreement CHB LLC and National Beef Packing recently signed an updated packer and process agreement for National Beef’s CHB value-added line of product. “National Beef has been a great partner with CHB since 2003 and this agreement will strengthen the partnership,” says Jack Ward,

American Hereford Association executive vice president. “This agreement will give CHB the ability to approach existing and new retail and food service customers with a value-added program that will give access to quality ground beef, cut steaks and a variety of other products.” National Beef Vice President of Value Added Tom Klein says since the inception of their partnership with CHB in 2003, National Beef has focused on growing business and the CHB brand primarily through boxed beef. “As both consumer preferences and the competitive environment change over time, so must our focus,” Klein says. “It is with great anticipation that we embark on a new chapter in the partnership between National Beef and Certified Hereford Beef; one of which will place greater emphasis on developing new consumerready items to complement our boxed beef offerings. These items will offer more convenience and flexibility to our loyal customers, giving them more firepower to compete in the marketplace.” National Beef CHB Business Manager Wes Steimel says the Retail Ready line of CHB will allow retail customers to expand their product offering, while saving labor and reducing shrink. “We at National Beef pride ourselves in being an industry leader in innovation, providing customers with products that bring value to their business and offer solutions to many of the struggles they face in this very competitive environment,” Steimel says. Ward says this was a significant day for CHB LLC. “We continue to grow and create demand for highquality, tender beef supplied by cattlemen that understand the value of adding Hereford genetics to the U.S. cow herd.” HW Hereford.org

Accept the Challenge and Achieve Your Goals This summer, I will be writing the last sentence for several chapters in my book of life. In May I completed the chapter of my college education and the college experience. In June I finish writing of my involvement with the Illinois Junior Hereford Association (IJHA) as I handle the show entries one last time at my last IJHA Preview Show. And, finally, in July I will attend my last Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and will be turning over my maroon jacket to another inspiring junior to write the chapters in his or her book of the opportunity to serve on the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors. While closing so many chapters in such a short amount of time brings about a great deal of change in my life, I am certainly excited to see what God has planned for the

next chapter as the Illinois Beef Association director of outreach and promotions. Without a doubt, my experiences as a Hereford junior and my service on the NJHA board have molded me into the individual I am today. As I reflect on my time on the NJHA board, there is one quote that I feel rings true: “The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been and the memories we’ve made along the way.” When I was elected to the board in 2013, an unbelievable journey began. Being able to receive a maroon jacket from my sister was an experience I will always remember. Through all the meetings, fun times and challenging decisions, my service on the NJHA board has not only brought me closer to some incredible individuals but has helped me to develop skills that could not have been gained anywhere else. We have loved, lived and learned, sometimes the hard way, yet all the while enjoyed the ride as it molded us into wellrounded individuals. I have learned too many life lessons to count over the last three years and have also learned a lot about myself. It just would not be right if I did not give gratitude to some of the people who have pushed me to be the best possible version of myself. To our advisors — McMillans, Copelands, Gobles, and Becks, Amy and Bailey — thank you for the support, guidance, expertise

and patience. You all have become more than just mentors; you are true friends and people for whom I have the utmost respect. Thank you for your encouragement and having faith in our direction and decisions as a board. To my boardies — This experience would not have been the same without you. Through the laughs, tears, arguments and countless memories, I feel so blessed to have served with such a powerful group of people, who no doubt have a big and bright future. To my family — thank you for your unconditional love and support and for instilling in me first-class values and morals and, most importantly, an unwavering faith that He is the ultimate judge and has a plan for my life. To my Hereford family — last, but certainly not least, thank you for your support and the simple words of encouragement that always preceded a genuine smile and offerings of Mountain Dew and a chair whenever we looked like we had reached the end. You are the reason we do what we do. With that, it’s been the ride of a lifetime, and I am excited to close this chapter of my life on the red carpet in Madison with “A Hereford Scene in 2016.” See you all there. — Taryn Adcock, NJHA vice chairman

Reflecting on Three Unforgettable Years I could spend this entire article recounting the many memories I have made while on the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board, because I have

made many or telling you how much being on the junior board has impacted who I am as a person, because it has. However, I’ve already lived those stories and felt the Hereford.org


impact the board has had on my life. I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t waste time trying to live through someone else’s experiences but, rather, go out and create your own. When I started this journey, my image of where I would be today and the experiences I would have gained during my time on the board looked very different from what they actually have become, but life has a funny way of doing that to you. It is kind of like making breeding decisions — you like to imagine what kind of calf your breeding choices will produce, but you can never accurately predict what that calf will look like until it hits the ground. Whatever your desires are, my biggest piece of advice to you is to take advantage of each and every opportunity that comes your way. You will never regret trying to get involved or trying to achieve goals you set for yourself. You can’t predict what will happen in your life, and you can never be sure of the challenges that will come your way. They often come at the most unsuspecting times, in the most unimaginable ways. I think it is in those moments that you have the opportunity to grow and to define yourself, merely in how you choose to deal with the things that come your way. One moment doesn’t define you, but how you handle it can. I have gained an extraordinary amount of memories, experiences and life lessons from my 23 years of being around Hereford cattle, Hereford breeders and the NJHA. I wouldn’t be who I am or where I am today without the experiences and opportunities I have been given through the breed. Serving on the board is just one of those many opportunities that I have been given. My biggest hope is that I utilized this opportunity to the best of my ability and positively impacted at least one junior’s life. Always remember there is more to this breed and business than Hereford.org

what happens in the showring. Take advantage of the contests that are put on while at the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE); you will gain more skills through opportunities like those than you will ever imagine. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet someone, because that person may become your new best friend or a connection that helps your dream become reality. I cannot express a thank you big enough to my friends, family and the Hereford breeders who have stuck by me and supported me when I needed it most over the past three years. It is nearly impossible to accomplish goals on your own. Thank you to those who were selflessly there helping me achieve my goals. The people we surround ourselves with have some of the biggest impacts on our lives and the people we become. Not everyone is going to support you and believe in you, and not every situation or goal you set for yourself is going to work out as planned or imagined, and that’s OK. One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to ensure you are surrounded with people who genuinely care and cheer you on. We are lucky to be in a breed where high quality people are so easily found. Set goals for yourself and work tirelessly to reach them, remember the important things in life when challenges come your way and always remember success doesn’t come without a support system. Thank you for allowing me to serve these past three years on the board — it has been an honor. If I can ever help you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask. I can promise you, wherever there are Hereford cattle, I won’t be far behind. — Amanda Bacon, NJHA director

A Hereford Scene in 2016 Whether you have been showing Herefords for years or this is your first show season, the excitement we all feel is like none other. I would compare showing at the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) to what is called “The Greatest Show on Earth” — the circus. But I must say, this event has the circus beat by leaps and bounds. The JNHE really is “The Greatest Show on Earth.” What we take away from this experience is not easily forgotten. Where else can you take your family and have as much fun? I venture to say that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere that offers so much for the entire family. For many of us, JNHE is the family vacation each summer. This is the family vacation that takes a lot of preparation involving breeding decisions, calving, weaning, feeding and fitting. With JNHE just around the corner, we all seem to be spending more time in the show barn getting ready to head to Madison, Wis., July 9-15. It is staying daylight longer, and we still can’t seem to find enough

time to get everything done. Adults and junior members alike begin to feel the excitement of heading to junior nationals long before it is time to go. Even with the hustle and bustle of getting ready, it is well worth the hard work we all put into it. If you are a junior member and are looking to have the time of your life in Madison, I would recommend you enter as many contests as possible. The experiences you will gain from being an active junior member will pay off for you in the long run. Contests throughout the week include the Hereford bowl, the Great American Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) Grill-off, individual and team sales, speech contests, judging and showmanship. Beyond the contests and showing cattle, there are many other events throughout the week that will keep us all busy. It is guaranteed to be a week full of

cherished memories inside and outside the showring. National Hereford Women is an organization that helps with scholarships, contests and the National Hereford Queen Program. If you are not a member or know someone who is, stop by our booth in Madison. Annual dues are $20, and it is quick and easy to join. Where else can you join an organization that puts our youth first? “A Hereford Scene in 2016” will undoubtedly be a family vacation to remember. HW

The World Gives a Little, Takes a Little Perhaps trying harder to understand the world in its entirety is enough for now. The Dickinson Research Extension Center hosts many young people throughout the year. Coincidentally, I could not help but be drawn to a United Nation’s (U.N.) report regarding animal-tohuman disease transmission. A couple of weeks ago, students were walking through our pastures, fields and farm shelter belts. The day included hands-on activities. My thoughts included concepts from the U.N. report. How exposed should we be to the world around us? That is a very serious and deep question. Why? Simply put, our world is a massive living system utilizing all the living to sustain itself. Living is part of that process, a process of recycling and, ultimately, reclaiming. So, as the students touched, listened to, spoke about or even breathed in the marvelous experience, they, at the same time, integrated into the very system they visited. They become part of it, leaving behind traces and pieces and taking with them traces and pieces.

The cycle These traces and pieces are at the heart of the U.N. report — some good, some fair, some marginal and some potentially challenging. Student leftovers in the pasture were not as obvious as the leftovers from the center’s cattle last summer. The pasture had numerous “cow pies,” or, simply put, last year’s dried-up cow manure. Again, the world gives a little and takes a little. The cows took a little and left a little. It’s the cycle. The students noticeably avoided the cow pies. But, with a little encouragement to kick the cow pies, the students were quick to notice the multitude of life cycling under and within the cow pies. The bugs, for lack of the longer scientific

32

/ July 2016

term, were plentiful, even enough to add to their collection vials to take home. Again, the world gives a little and takes a little. The students also took a little and left a little. It’s a cycle. This cycle is not going away. So I am puzzled by articles that state the obvious: We all take a little and give a little.

The fears Further puzzling, for those diligently struggling to provide for themselves and others, are these nagging thoughts that generate a perceived fear inherent with the production of food. Will this grow to the extent that we can become fearful of ourselves and our efforts, abandoning centuries of food production processes? Are we giving way to enjoined fears and forgetting the world gives a little but also takes a little? Yes, we always will have issues and challenges, and those who only want to receive and not to give will struggle. When the world takes, we all may struggle. What do the big words, the diseases and associated pictures, the doomsday foretelling really offer? Should we run from our food? And if so, where do we go? The animal, bird and plant processes are the cycles within the world. The processes work, and we continue to discover and understand the infinite details of the processes. But that understanding may bring a thought that we should control these infinite parts in an effort to ultimately find peace for humankind. But the world gives a little and takes a little. Every day a piece is in play. And so, perhaps, the students should pick up those cow pies. Our grandfathers and grandmothers survived by picking

up cow pies off the prairie and storing them for later use as fuel in the old days or they can simply be used for a throwing contest today. Shame on me; I did not have the students pick up the cow pies. The concept of the students picking up cow pies was not on the agenda nor was explaining to a concerned parent why his or her children had been encouraged to play in cow dung.

The understanding Life and death are a compilation of all that is around us, and we give a little and take a little. Every day we should appreciate all, including the tremendous life in a cow pie. So instead of gathering our fears and eradicating the source of the marvelous cow pie, we should understand the world gives a little and takes a little. All living things integrate into this world, and as we learn, we always must ask if we are seeking understanding or control. We hope we answer “understanding,” an understanding that will lessen our fear, not create fear. As humans, we are special. We, too, need to realize our time here is short. For tomorrow, for our future, I hope future generations can walk through that pasture, kick some cow pies and go home and eat a wellbalanced meal, including beef. But for now, perhaps it is enough to ask that we all work harder at understanding the world in its entirety and ponder the relationships of the many pieces we know and seek those we do not. Our children should not fear the food they eat or the land it comes from. Rather, they should welcome an expression of thanksgiving, an appreciation of nurturing that translates into caring for all.

FAT

— A Dirty Word ????

H

ave you ever noticed pictures of ancient statues of Greek women or goddesses? Ever wonder why they were pleasingly plump? Being thin in ancient times (unlike today) was a sign of being poor and not having enough to eat so “skinny” was avoided! Most older American farmers can remember when fat was essential on all market animals before the change to lean meat. The old story of “Jack Sprat who could eat no fat and his wife who could eat no lean so licked the platter clean” just does not fly in this day and age. Yet even today fat is still essential for cattle to marble and grade. Natural fat still has other important values with cattle. My dad always said, “Fat on cattle hides a multitude of sins.” That is why many breeders have sale bulls so fat many have to be “thinned down” before being turned out with the cows for breeding. Most breeders have seen university “cow conditioning charts” showing that cows which are too thin have poor conception rates and the thinner, the worse the rates. We once sold a bull calf under one year of age and had him returned a few months later with a letter from the buyer’s vet

For performance-tested Hazlett-Turner Ranch bloodlines

saying the bull was sterile and would never breed. We called our vet to band him for eating. After observing the bull, our vet argued against castration saying he had never seen a Hereford bull that was sterile unless he was too fat or too thin and this one was starving. We followed our vets advice and a few months later resold the bull with a required semen check. This buyer’s vet said that he had never seen better semen in his life than the bull now had. Obviously, we learned several lessons from this experience. Today most breeders recognize the value of natural, easy fleshing or what many call “good keeper” cattle. The bull pictured below is a good example of this with a 5½ frame score and weighing over 2,300 lb. on grass. His mother was sold at 17 and would have passed for half that age. It is in the genetics of the old Hazlett line of cattle. We are using his sons and grandsons and invite you to have a look. We shared ownership in him with Pollestad Herefords of Taylor, North Dakota, who still have semen available. With the increasing popularity of grass-fed beef, cattle need to be good keepers and easy fleshing, but it is of value in all beef herds.

Ranching for Children “Preserving the western heritage for generations to come.” — Rocker b Ranch motto

This West Texas spread helps fund children’s medical care. by Sara Gugelmeyer

I

t’s one of the largest contiguous ranches in the world. At 173,000 acres of rolling hills and river country in West Texas, the Rocker b Ranch in Barnhart is unique in its own right. It’s not the cattle. The ultraproductive Hereford-Angus cross cow reigns supreme here just as it does on many ranches. It’s not the horses, although they are some of the best cow-bred American Quarter Horse bloodlines. It’s that the Rocker b Ranch is owned by the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children that sets this operation apart. And all of the ranch’s revenue goes to fund pediatric orthopedic medical care, which is provided regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

Senator Blakley, pictured horseback here, purchased the ranch in 1954 and stocked it with Anxiety 4th-bred Herefords shortly after.

Cowboy history

ranch’s large annual income from cattle, horses and minerals, Blakley’s generous gift has helped fund the hospital for more than 50 years. “Preserving the western heritage for generations to come,” is the ranch’s motto and it accomplishes that by using traditional cowboy methods to handle cattle and horses. Director of ranch operations, Dennis Webb, along with his son Cody and Cody’s wife, Sarah, oversees the dayto-day operations. The ranch sprawls across a large portion of Irion and Reagan

The ranch has a long history, even before it was called the Rocker b. The ranchland was originally put together from 1871 to 1910 as the Bar S. Then in 1954 William Blakley, a lawyer-bankerbusinessman, later elected U.S. Senator, purchased the massive spread and changed the name to Rocker b Ranch. In 1958 Blakley purchased the Windsor Place herd of Herefords, which were of Anxiety 4th bloodlines. That became the basis for his quality cow herd. The ranch still uses a Hereford-Angus cross cow herd today. Blakley operated the ranch for about a decade before he gifted it in its entirety to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. With the

Counties. The gently rolling mesquite- and cactus-covered hills are home to an abundance of cows. The Middle Concho River and Centralia Draw provide lush grazing, but most of the ranch is a harsh, arid environment.

Hereford-influenced Because of that, the ranch management strives to maintain a 50-50 cross of Hereford and Angus. “It’s what works best for us on this type of country,” Sarah Webb continued on page 42...

explains. “It is the most efficient cow with putting the best product back in to the food chain on the plate. We generally don’t get a lot of rain; these cows have to work for a living.” To accomplish this, solid black cows are bred to Hereford bulls and red or black baldie cows are bred to Angus bulls. In the last few years, the heifers have been retained to grow the cow herd after droughtforced reduction. The remainder of the calves are sold at weaning as source- and age-verified.

It is a cowboy operation. Like many large historical Texas ranches, the Rocker b is divided into “camps.” The seven camps each house a full-time camp man. He is in charge of the cows in his camp. Cattle are handled horseback, and during spring branding, the wagons are rolled out, and the cowboys work together to rope, drag and brand all of the calves produced each year. Besides being “caked” or given a range cube supplement in the winter,

A black baldie is the product of choice on the ranch — in order to produce a cow that will do well in the harsh environment and produce the best beef on the plate.

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions. It strives to improve the care of children worldwide through innovative research and teaching programs, training physicians from around the world. TSRHC treats children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as sports injuries and certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia. The hospital was established in 1921 when a group of Texas Masons approached Dallas’ first orthopedic surgeon Dr. W. B. Carrell about caring for children with polio regardless of a family’s ability to pay. With the introduction of the Salk and Sabin vaccines in the mid1950s, which virtually eradicated polio in the Western Hemisphere, TSRHC broadened its focus to other orthopedic conditions. As a leading pediatric orthopedic center, the hospital has treated more than 250,000 children from birth up to 18 years of age with financial assistance available. TSRHC is the only Scottish Rite hospital in the world. — Courtesy of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children

Recently Cody has been in charge of putting together a small herd of registered cows from which to raise some bulls for use on the ranch.

the cows must perform on what nature provides, Sarah explains. Although the ranch experimented with a tigerstripecomposite cow for a while, for about the past 15 years, the black baldie has been the cow of choice at the Rocker b. Sarah says everyone appreciates the docility Hereford adds to the mix. It takes a large bull battery to service all of the ranch’s cows, and Sarah says the ranch’s Herefords bulls are often easier to handle. The Rocker b has purchased Hereford bulls from Dudley Bros., Comanche, Texas, for nearly 50 years. Just recently, though, Cody has been in charge of putting together a small herd of registered cows from which to raise some bulls for use on the ranch. “We plan to supplement our bull battery with some that we raise,” Sarah says. “We’ve played with raising bulls a little in the past but we’ve never done anything registered until now.” The Rocker b management isn’t necessarily planning to sell seedstock, but isn’t ruling that option out. Either way, Hereford genetics have been and will continue to be an integral part of generating revenue for children’s medical care. HW

Certified Hereford Beef is gaining popularity among the best in the industry. by Kayla M. Wilkins

W

hether it’s a savory steak,

a juicy hamburger or smoked brisket, Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) is on the rise,

making its presence known with top-notch restaurants across the country. 48

/ July 2016

The popularity of Hereford beef on the menu has been increasing rapidly in recent years. Awardwinning restaurants are gaining reputation with customers and critics alike for their quality of food and service. In fact, many of these restaurants have been deemed best of the best in their area. Although they each bring forth a culinary experience all their own, they also share a common denominator — Certified Hereford Beef.

Why CHB? When Scott Ellinger, owner of The Brass Rail in O’Fallon, Mo., first discovered CHB three years ago, he knew it was the product that would

soon exceed the goals he had set for his new steakhouse. Like many, he was seeking the freshest, highquality product out there and says he found it with CHB. “I started to develop a restaurant insisting on a higher quality product,” Ellinger says. “When Sysco St. Louis brought in the CHB line, it just made sense they would bring it out here to show to me.” Like Ellinger, the quest for a high-quality, consistent product is what first drew many culinary artists to the product line. “For me, it is the pursuit of perfection,” says Austin Simmons, chef at Hubbell & Hudson Bistro in The Woodlands, Texas. “If we are not all trying to get better every Hereford.org

is certainly a positive one. From being named best steak in O’Fallon to one of the top burgers in the Houston area, CHB is aiding restaurants in making their way to the top of the charts. Ellinger says the consistency the product brings to the table is unmatched. He explains the quality paired with his restaurant’s stellar service is what keeps its doors open. “We have seen much improved guest satisfaction,” Ellinger says. “The quality of the product is way more consistent; it is just much better.” This quality has sent The Brass Rail to the top when it comes to ratings as it was named the city’s best steakhouse in the 2015 Best of O’Fallon Awards. Ellinger has even taken it one step further by opening his own meat market as an extension to his restaurant, selling exclusively CHB. He says he is eager to grow with the brand by expanding his business. “As far as CHB goes, I am so happy with the product,” Ellinger says. “I am so happy that it was introduced to me because it has made a difference and will continue to.” Much like The Brass Rail, customer experience is everything for Hubbell & Hudson Bistro. After

day in what we do in our craft, then what are we doing?” Simmons turns out a burger that doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. He says it pleases his customers, in part, because the product is consistent in quality and has a taste that keeps his customers satisfied. However, Simmons is not alone in the hunt for perfection. Striving for excellence is key to other restaurants’ success, as well. In the initial search for a superior product to fit his St. Louis steakhouse, Derek Gamlin, owner of Gamlin Whiskey House, explains he would settle for nothing less than the best for his customers. “I went on a search for the best beef I could possibly find,” Gamlin says. “After menu samples, we chose the Hereford program purely because of the consistency of taste that we found from it.” In contrast to the high-quality steaks and chopped beef CHB has provided Gamlin, Simmons and Ellinger, it is the brisket that best fits the bill for the food trailer turned brick-and-mortar restaurant in Bluefield, W.Va. Travis Harry, owner of The Big Whiskey BBQ Company, says he adds a Texas flare to his smoked creations and receives plenty of positive feedback from his customers for it. It was actually the positive responses to his hobby cooking that first prompted him to pursue a passion in food service. He attributes the end quality of his barbecue to the quality he starts with in CHB. “When you start off with an amazing piece of tender meat it only gets better from there,” Harry says. “By choosing Certified Hereford Beef, we can multiply the tenderness by our smoking process and it is just what the customers are looking for.”

All-star reviews The major strides toward perfection are not going unnoticed. The feedback these restaurants have received from customers and critics is astounding. The theme Hereford.org

being named as serving one of the best burgers in the Houston area by Houston Press, it is apparent they are doing something right. “We have never had a complaint on our burger here and that is what keeps me with Hereford,” Simmons says. “It has been a super consistent program. It means a lot to me that it is consistent and the guests never having an issue is important to us.” The positive feedback has inspired Simmons to begin introducing more dishes featuring CHB chopped beef, and he says he is eager to see how customers react to his newest creation. Meanwhile, Gamlin Whiskey House is making a name as

having one of the top steaks in Missouri according to Zagat’s “50 States, 50 Steaks” article published in February. After years in the restaurant business, Gamlin knows how crucial it is to provide what his customers are demanding, as well. “The customers can see the consistency and legitimacy of what we are doing,” Gamlin says. “They know what to expect when they come for a steak at Gamlin Whiskey House and they know they are going to get a quality cut every time.” The positive feedback from customers and critics doesn’t end

Purchasing Certified Hereford Beef made easy In today’s technology-driven society, everything seems to only be a click away. As of late May, that is now reality for individuals tracking down Certified Hereford Beef Customers looking to buy CHB can order on (CHB®) products. The map-listing feature ShopHereford.com and expect their order to be delivered the next day by overnight shipping. on HerefordBeef.org allows anyone to run a search for food distributors, restaurants and even grocery stores that carry CHB near them. “The map feature on the website will make the search for CHB more efficient and userfriendly,” says Amari Manning, chief operating officer and general manager for CHB LLC. “It will automatically detect your location services and tell you where the CHB distributors, retailers and restaurants are near you, or if you are traveling and want to know where you can get The map-listing feature on HerefordBeef.org allows anyone a good steak then it will direct to run a search for establishments that carry CHB near them. you exactly where to go.” The map can be easily accessed under the “Where to Buy” tab on the homepage of HerefordBeef.org. Once customers reach the map, they can either utilize location services to generate CHB carriers nearby or use another option to manually type in city and state or zip code for the search. Manning notes restaurant owners looking for a CHB distributor in their area can even utilize the feature. Easy access to CHB does not end there. Customers looking to purchase CHB products can also do so on ShopHereford.com. Shoppers can visit the “Butcher Shop” and, at the click of a button, can order a variety of products including ribeyes, T-bones and tenderloin steaks and then expect them to be delivered the next day by overnight shipping anywhere in the United States.

with burgers and steaks; CHB was also a judge’s first pick at Clay Country’s Cook-off recently. Harry says he feels CHB has set his barbecue apart in terms of tenderness and flavor. He notes the gratification of a satisfied customer. “It is a good feeling when you see someone bite into the brisket and then they start doing the head nod to the people that are sitting at the table with them,” Harry says. At the end of the day, the owners and chefs can all agree it is the customers that drive their passion for the restaurant business. “I do certainly take those moments and they are very special to know that we are being recognized with some of the best restaurants out there because of how hard we try to put the right stuff on the plates,” Ellinger says.

Committed to excellence The product line behind the scenes of these successes is growing and turning heads all on its own. The American Hereford Association (AHA) has a time-honored tradition of aiding ranchers in producing the highest quality Hereford cattle possible. This tradition does not end with CHB LLC. “When we are providing customers with a high-quality, valuable product, we are giving them options on what they can serve, showing them the versatility of the product and the different menu applications,” says Amari Manning, chief operating officer and general manager of CHB LLC. “What that does for the culinary side is it allows them to utilize the items that are best fit for their restaurants and their demographics.” When restaurants can utilize the product and see value through positive feedback from customers, it also speaks volumes to CHB LLC. Manning explains how important brand integrity is for the future growth of the program. “This means that the restaurateur is finding value in our product’s performance and consistency,” Hereford.org


Manning says, “We want our customers to be loyal to the brand and when it performs as expected, we are strengthening our partnerships.” CHB LLC is committed to excellence and have aided in the growth of the program on a worldwide scale to a variety of customers. Today, almost 7,000 ranchers produce more than 52 million lb. of CHB across the United States. These numbers only continue to increase along with quality. “The brand will continue to grow with integrity and become a wellrecognized brand and a household name,” Manning says. Those reaping the benefits of the growth of CHB can also attest to the positive outlook for the future. Ellinger explains the potential he sees for the program and says if the program maintains quality, there is no other direction but up. Ellinger concludes, “The sky is the limit.” HW

Raising Certified Hereford Beef Producing cattle that qualify for the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program and meet the demand set by consumers is all in the hands of cattle producers across the United States. In the American Hereford Association’s (AHA) quest to identify and promote highquality groups of Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle to reputable buyers, it has developed a tool for interested producers to utilize through the $CHB Program. This tool is a free resource for producers that will aid in marketing Hereford and Hereford-influenced cattle for maximum profit through the $CHB program. This userfriendly tool only requires a simple feeder cattle information form available through AHA that producers can complete and return.

ello, hola, , bonjour, xin chào, kon’nichiwa, yeoboseyo, sälemetsiz be — greetings that are as diverse as the culture, landscapes, religions, family structures and political atmospheres one can witness in countries across the globe. One thing these nations and their citizens do have in common is the desire to have safe, nutritious and affordable food available for their families. And a second thing is the aspiration to make a living doing what they are passionate about. In this issue we take a look into how “Herefords Go Global” and the interconnected beef industry. Successful Hereford breeders and cattlemen have a keen business sense and networking abilities and are forward thinkers. In the pages that follow

Hereford.org

we will hear from Hereford breeders around the world who have these attributes and are capitalizing on the breed’s hardiness, longevity and adaptability. We will read about how American breeders import and export genetics and the challenges that come with each endeavor. U.S. cattlemen are, in essence, beef producers who are feeding the world. We take a look at the global consumer and the challenges and opportunities that come with the beef trade. We will also follow two young Hereford producers who hopped on a plane for an experience of a lifetime and to witness a different culture and way of raising cattle. Without packing a bag, just turn the page; let’s visit a new place and learn a little on the way. HW

Beyond a Vacation A young Hereford breeder experiences a trip of a lifetime to the World Hereford Conference. by Miranda Stotz

W

ho could ask for a better vacation when three of my favorite things are involved: travel, Hereford cattle and the people who breed them? My trip to the 17th World Hereford Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay, April 18-25, was an unbelievable experience, and I am excited to offer you my experiences in the hopes that they will give you a glimpse of this incredible event. This is Uruguay’s second time hosting the conference with the first being in 1980. The breed has continued to advance exponentially in those 36 years both in quantity and quality. The convention took place in the city of Montevideo, which is located right off the Rio de la Plata — so, the city’s edge is all stunning beaches. However, to get a view of the countryside, the tours took groups into the heart of Uruguay to witness the outstanding operations across the country’s landscape.

notice the international influence of genetics from numerous countries, which could be seen woven into the Uruguayan bloodlines. At the end of the day, everyone headed to one of the barns to enjoy some local wine and socializing. The third day marked the start of the conference sessions, which began with an informational talk on Uruguay’s ecological characteristics and productive systems, allowing everyone to better understand Uruguay’s unique herd systems. Next there was a discussion of the ID system used in Uruguay as well as some of the new technologies involved. The sessions ended with the continued on page 66...

My first event in Uruguay was a bus ride to the Kiyu Hereford Breeding Test Station, which is one of Uruguay’s greatest tools for breed improvement. Established in 1976, the station has created an opportunity for Hereford breeders by researching feed efficiency in their bull crops. The program has evolved into an innovative study of young bulls around 10 months of age from Uruguayan cowboys, or “gauchos,” worked cattle by horse. approximately 40 ranches in the country. The study is used to track feed efficiency and carcass value in accordance with genetics. This program lends itself to the Uruguayan goal of creating a more efficient breeding tool for the country’s herds. This trip was also my first time to witness the Uruguayan cowboys, or “gauchos,” in action. All week, gauchos worked cattle by horse, with no ATV (allterrain vehicle) in sight. On the second day, it was pouring down rain, but that didn’t put a damper on the day’s festivities as the group headed to the Rural Association of Uruguay in Montevideo to get a glimpse of the livestock and to enjoy the pen show. The Rural Association of Uruguay has a set of stunning barns and an outside arena where the show takes place.

American Hereford Association Executive Vice President Jack Ward addressed attendees during the conference.

Becoming a world traveler Miranda Stotz, Skiatook, Okla., was presented the OXO World Traveler Scholarship during the National Western Stock Show National Hereford Show Jan. 16 in Denver. The late Marilyn Matasovic made this scholarship possible in memory of her parents, Estelle and John Matasovic of OXO Herefords in southwestern Colorado. The scholarship provided $4,500 in travel funds for Stotz to attend the 2016 World Hereford Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay, April 17-23. The Matasovics loved Herefords and travel. They attended nine World Hereford Conferences and enjoyed the wonders of faraway countries and customs. This inspired Matasovic to create the scholarship to honor her parents. Stotz, 20, is the daughter of Max and Karen Stotz. She will be a senior at Tarleton State University, working toward a degree in animal science. She plans to earn her master’s degree in genetics. She has been a National Junior Hereford Association and Junior Hereford Association of Oklahoma member for 13 years. She’s been showing cattle all her life and was the champion intermediate showman at the 2013 Junior National Hereford Expo. HW

country reports, which gave a brief glimpse into each country’s herd. By far my favorite day of the conference was Thursday, which focused on the genetic aspect of the breed. The talks discussed the benefits of genetic testing, proposed ways to fund or encourage its use, and refreshed the push for the implementation of an international identification system. Only by collaborating data and creating a strategy to ID animals jointly can we increase accuracy of testing and its result as well as to reduce the waste of resources like testing the same animal several times. Another topic discussed was the accuracy of and the methods used to blend the genetic predictions we gather with the pedigree information. The last subject for the day drew the crowd’s attention to index use and the discussion of economic value in relation to our end goal. The talk encouraged breeders, researchers and all participants in the product cycle to pay attention to the traits that drive the economic indexes and not exclusively to the indexes. To conclude the day, we had the opportunity to listen to motivational speaker Gustavo Zerbino, who is one of the 16 survivors of the 1972 airplane crash involving Uruguay’s rugby team in the Andes. To cap the night off, we enjoyed the gala sales as well as a traditional Uruguayan dance coined the “candombe.” The last day of the conference was relaxed as participants observed the female and bull shows. After viewing a great group of cattle, we attended the gala dinner, where each country presented a gift to the host country. We experienced marvelous Uruguayan Hereford beef and said a final goodbye to those traveling back home.

Post-tour Although the conference was a phenomenal experience, the post-tour was where my best memories were made. Early Saturday morning the buses loaded and headed across country to Las Anitas, a family owned and operated ranch with more than 1,500 cows, which has been running for more than 80 years. The ranch’s owners allowed us to view a large portion of their top-quality stock by using horses to cut out certain cows from the large herd. It was neat to witness the horse work as well as to learn about the ranch’s herd and production style. That night we went to a small rural fairground for food, wine and live entertainment provided by a local guitarist. The next day we journeyed farther into the heart of the country to El Paraiso, where we took a tour of the pastured cattle, and I was finally able to comprehend the scale of the grass finishing system used throughout Uruguay. Uruguay is primarily a grass-finish cattle country with very few feedlots, so almost all cattle are Hereford.org


finished on grass pasture. It was an exhilarating sight to see nothing but Herefords for miles upon miles thriving on the native grassland. Next we moved to the main house to peruse the showstock. The owner told us that the town was built around the ranch because of how many people worked there to take care of the large amount of land and cattle. The next stop was only a short bus ride down the road to El Baqueano, a portion of the old El Paraisio estancia; so, both ranches are extended family. One of the owners is Santiago Bordaberry, who had judged the pen show earlier in the week. The family allowed us to view not only their impressive cow and bull herds, but also their Criolla horse herd and Corriedale sheep flock. El Baqueano is located on typical Uruguayan basalt fields and grazes its sheep and cattle together. The night ended with us sitting down with the family and getting to know them as well as enjoying some traditional Uruguayan food accompanied by live music. The final day we loaded on the buses and made our way to San Jose del Yaguari, where the family greeted us in traditional Uruguayan dress. San Jose del Yaguari is home to around 14,000 head of cattle, and we were able to view more than 500 head of its select cattle that were being prepared for sale. The ranch boasts numerous champions, including 17 grand champions at the Prado show.

Concluding the trip, we all enjoyed one last meal, lots of laughter and a few stories before loading back on the buses to go home.

International bonds As my time in Uruguay came to an end, I cannot begin to describe the experiences and friendships I was able to create because of this incredible opportunity. I also cannot thank the numerous ranch hosts and volunteers enough for their overwhelming generosity — they made Uruguay seem like home. I also want to thank every person I met on the trip; while I may have been one of the youngest participants, I felt as if I was traveling with family by the end of the week. Lastly, I want to thank the Swiercinsky family and note my appreciation for the late Marilyn Matasovic who made this scholarship possible in memory of her parents Estelle and John Matasovic, because without the OXO World Traveler Scholarship, I would never have been able to gain this experience of a lifetime. I learned so much over the course of the week, but my greatest takeaway was my newfound outlook on the global impact the Hereford breed is developing and its potential in the future. We must continue to cultivate strong international bonds so we can reach the ultimate goal of continued improvement of the breed. HW

Uruguay’s beef production The República Oriental del Uruguay is located in the Southern Cone of South America, bordering with Brazil on the north and northeast, Argentina to the west and the Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean to the south and southeast, respectively. Thanks to a mild climate, Uruguay’s main production is based on livestock and agriculture. The country is located in one of the most extensive cattle and

Hereford.org

sheep breeding regions of the world with its large agricultural and livestock neighboring countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile. Nearly 80% of the country’s land is devoted to livestock and is home to 11 million head of cattle — with six million head being Hereford. Traceability is mandatory for 100% of cattle stock and every packing plant in the country. The process begins

on the farm when the animal is born and continues until the final product, through an electronic information system (Black Boxes) with ISO 27001 Certification, audited by the British Standards Institute (BSI). The use of hormones, antibiotics and animal proteins in animals’ feed is forbidden by law. — Information provided by HerefordUruguay2016.org

Herefords Go Global

Exporting Advice One man’s foray into the export business proves connections are everything when it comes to selling genetics internationally. by Sara Gugelmeyer

I

t started by chance, really. While working at a bull test station in Iowa, herdsman Pat Simmons had the opportunity to go to a cattle show in Brazil in 1978. He met some people, and it wasn’t long before word spread, and so began a successful career in the international genetics business. “I was working in Iowa on a polled Hereford ranch that also had a performance test station,” Simmons explains. “Breeders from around the U.S. and Canada would send bulls there to test them and to be compared to bulls from different ranches.” The ranch was called Triple H, owned by Keith Hoelzen and family, in Burlington, Iowa, and Simmons was its herdsman. A buyer from Brazil purchased four bulls and invited Simmons and the

Hoelzens to Brazil’s large annual cattle show in 1978. Simmons and Keith Hoelzen attended, and it was a turning point in Simmons’ life and career. “I was fitting a lot of cattle back then,” Simmons says. “While I was in Brazil I met a family and fitted some cattle for them. They asked me to come back the next year to teach their herdsman how we fit cattle in the U.S.” Simmons’ business was expanding quickly, mostly by word of mouth. “In 1980, I was in Denver and a Uruguayan breeder bought a horned Hereford bull in the sale there,” Simmons explains. “He had heard [about my previous experience in Brazil], and asked me if I was willing to help. I flew on a chartered plane with his bull and other cattle Harding and Hereford.org

for genetics, although their genetics would work here in the U.S. very well. “They don’t have the feedlots down there that we do,” Simmons explains. “There are more all the time, but politics have a huge effect on things there. If [South American producers] start getting paid for the quality of beef they produce, I expect more and more feedlots. And then there’ll be more focus on quality. That’s where Hereford genetics will rise again, because there’s nothing better than the black baldie.”

Travel recommended Simmons encourages U.S. Hereford breeders to travel to South America and to see the industry there for themselves. “They need to travel and see what’s happening in those countries,” he says. “A lot of contacts are made at Denver, and it’s a great showcase for all of the U.S. beef industry.” But for someone looking to export cattle genetics, he says it’s important to travel to the national shows in foreign countries. “I recommend to go and to see what people are doing. I know it’s not easy to travel, but it’s important to see what they’re doing and how everybody can benefit. I always learn something every time I travel,” Simmons says.

It’s not easy The biggest challenge for Hereford breeders looking to export genetics to South America is not necessarily the language barrier, Simmons says. “Don’t worry about the language too much because a lot of people speak English there,” he says, “and I know from experience with a smile on your face you will figure it out eventually.” By far, he says, the hardest part of the export business is the paperwork. That’s why his company and others like it can be so beneficial to breeders — they know how to handle all the administrative work. “The paperwork is very daunting; I can say this from experience,” he says. “When it comes time to

export, the lack of knowledge can be detrimental. Because everybody is very busy, they often don’t follow up on opportunities because it can be so time consuming.” Simmons adds, “I tell new customers, ‘It will be frustrating; it will be a slow process, but there are some great rewards and wonderful people to meet.’” He cautions that doing business internationally is not all that different from domestic sales except there’s more political risk involved. “I don’t ship anything without the money having arrived to the States, unless the seller and the buyer have made an agreement between themselves, with terms of so many days,” he says. “A person has to be careful. Most people are good for it, but there are risks with international trade. I tell my customers this: ‘It’s not that we don’t trust you, it’s that we don’t know what will happen tomorrow.’” For example, in 2008 in Buenos Aires, farmers and ranchers organized what was essentially a strike against their government and blocked the roads so no grain or food could be transported. Another time, Simmons wasn’t able to export any genetics into Argentina because the government refused to grant the proper permits. “Situations arise and something could happen to me or something could happen to the other person,” Simmons says, “It’s just better to do business that way.” He adds, “Many of these people I do trust completely, and have been doing business with them for over 40 years, but we still have to have all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed on the paperwork, or something could happen and we couldn’t get paid.”

But it’s worth it

That said, Simmons points out that international business is often another good source of revenue for breeders. “People have to get to know you and have a comfort level,” he says. “Really you just have to build a relationship with people and once you do, it will last forever.” All in all, Simmons says that although his business evolved into what it is today — it wasn’t something he set out to accomplish — he still wouldn’t change a thing. “It’s neat to see what [my customers’] cattle have done in other countries,” he says. And there’s hardly ever a dull moment in the import/ export business. “One thing about it, if there are no problems, it’s because nothing’s happened.” HW Pictured with the 1998 grand and reserve grand champion polled Hereford bulls at the Expointer Brasil show (l to r) are Joao Manuel, Hilton Jacques, Reynaldo Titoff, Joao Viera de Macedo and Pat Simmons.

Herefords Go Global

Global Understanding Food security, urbanization and agriculture’s image impact us all. by Kindra Gordon

L

ast fall, I had the opportunity to expand my knowledge of global agriculture while attending the Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium held in Des Moines, Iowa. This annual event is called the “premier conference in the world on global agriculture.” It is held in tribute to Iowa native Norman Borlaug, who prompted the Green Revolution and is credited with saving more than a billion lives with his development of improved, high yield wheat varieties that began to be grown in Mexico, Asia and Latin America in the 1950s and ’60s. Today, the Borlaug Dialogue features the humanitarian and agricultural efforts of researchers and philanthropists from around the world. Topics this year highlighted global initiatives in precision agriculture, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education for girls,

aquaculture, growing sweet potatoes to supply better nutrition to children in Africa and soil health. Speakers represented a cross-section of researchers, academia, government and humanitarian aid organizations from Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Latin America and the United States. For me, this was an experience outside my regular agriculture news coverage — I immediately noticed there were no beef researchers among the presenters, and I soon realized there was no beef (or pork) featured on the two-day meal menu either. This realization made me keenly aware that in America we take what one presenter coined as a “rich country’s view” of global food and ag issues. That said, I enjoyed the opportunity to learn, as we all should, about the ongoing, grassroots efforts around the world to solve global challenges related to food insecurity. Hereford.org

Along with that problem, the major challenge is providing impoverished individuals with access to food, as well as information and training, resources such as seed, and financing to improve their livelihood. Eric Pohlman with the One Acre Fund in Africa reiterated this message, saying, “Farmers need distribution, training and finance.” Pohlman made two additional remarks of interest. He pointed out that “the best distribution that exists on the planet is Coca-Cola” and noted that if agriculture could emulate that model as they work to distribute knowledge and resources, much progress could be made. Additionally, he noted the cell phone will be a major tool in the future war against poverty and hunger. He shared that currently there are more cell phones on the planet than people. Cell phones are increasingly being used to provide production information and market prices to farmers across Africa, giving them opportunities to enhance their profitability. That said, this development and use for cell David MacLennan, chairman and CEO of Cargill, says food phones also underscores the need for education of scarcity is no longer the biggest problem at hand. Instead, the challenge is to provide the impoverished with food, information, children in third-world countries, so they have the training and the resources to improve their livelihood. ability to read and understand the information that is increasingly becoming available to them. One speaker emphasized that children need proper nutrition so their minds are able to learn, as well.

Poverty biggest problem

Moving from “or” to “and” One of the speakers I enjoyed most was James Borel, executive vice president for DuPont. Borel pointed out society today has developed an attitude that one choice must be good and the other bad — for example, pitting large versus small farms, organic or conventional methods, and crops grown with or without seed technology (GMOs). In efforts to feed the world, Borel emphasized, “It’s not one or the other; we need to change ‘or’ to ‘and.’ We need large Hereford.org

He, too, expressed the need to attract future One observation I made gives me hope for the scientists into agriculture and food. Khan reports future of agriculture.

Urbanization reflects improved circumstances for many with jobs and income. As the global middle class grows, more will have opportunity to improve their diets and consume more proteins.

Conservationist’s view A second observation: Among the more than 700 attendees at the symposium, I was surrounded by more vegetarians than I have ever been exposed to before — vegetarianism being a choice many appear to have made because of their social conscience. A vegetarian diet is reflective of the simple diets of those in impoverished circumstances, and some implied beef production utilizes too many world resources and does not represent sustainable and environmental causes. I realized the job of helping promote understanding about the beef industry from production to nutritional benefit is needed more than ever. A final observation came from an unexpected topic: sweet potatoes. A panel discussion highlighted the progress being made with child nutrition in Africa by getting more kids to consume sweet potatoes, which provide a high source of immunityboosting Vitamin A. Interestingly, sweet potato consumption had been tried in the 1980s but didn’t catch on. In the past decade, orange sweet potatoes, rather than white ones, were introduced, and women and children have been intrigued by the orange color. African women are being taught about the nutritional benefit. They’ve been given sweet potato vines to plant and have had successful crops, which gives them a healthy product to feed their children and a product to market to others, as well. My takeaways to be applied to the beef industry from this: the nutritional story of a food product is powerful when it is shared with moms — they want a healthy future for their children. It’s also a great reminder that sometimes an idea just needs to be tweaked and retried. Not many things are ever successful on first try. The final message I took home came from Sheryl WuDunn, a Pulitzer Prize winner and coauthor of the book “A Path Appears.” She noted, often when addressing global challenges, it feels they are so vast it is impossible to make a difference. But WuDunn encouraged attendees, saying, “Anything we do is a drop in the bucket…but together we can all put a lot of drops in the bucket.” WuDunn expressed that often addressing the small social issues makes the greatest change. She noted that building schools and providing uniforms are one aspect toward helping educate children, but it is in vain if those children are not healthy. A simple deworming treatment at a cost of $3.50 per child may make the greatest impact in putting that child on a better path toward education. HW

An individual who is actively pursuing change in the world is farmer and philanthropist Howard Buffett, son of stock market mogul Warren Buffett. At the Borlaug Symposium, he joined a panel discussion on the topic of soil health, a cause Buffett is passionate about. Buffett opened his remarks stating, “The greatest asset farmers have is under their feet — their soil. People think they are taking care of it, but they aren’t. You can make a list of the top priorities among farm organizations in the U.S. and soil conservation won’t show up. Conservation might be on the list, but it usually means something different.” He noted the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) is doing more in the area of soil health, but for Buffett the government’s pace is not fast enough. He has research plots on many of his own properties on farmland across the U.S., as well as in Africa and South America. Of the soil health research being done, he takes this view: “I believe one thing we have to do is be realistic and practical with what we can get to the field.” Buffett says soil health requires minimal soil disturbance, continual cover, cover crops and rotation of crops. He also advocates reducing inputs and says, “You can do amazing things if you know how to use nature.” Buffett noted, changing practices to foster soil health is a mindset shift requires a learning curve. He says, “It’s not easy to figure out — it’s like rocket science, but once you figure it out, it is easy.” Buffett describes the roots of cover crops as “channels into the soil” as opposed to the compaction that machines create. He adds, “You are building an ecosystem under the soil.” His frustration is this, “many people say ‘I tried no-till one year and it didn’t work.’ To me, that’s like saying I tried marriage for a year and it didn’t work. Nothing in ag works in one year. You’ve got to work at it and compromise.” He concluded, “I’ve been to every country in Africa. When you see children die [due to a lack of food], you realize you can and must farm better. That’s why I am passionate about it. Status quo [farming] is unacceptable. When people throw stones at conservation agriculture, give me a better answer than ‘I tried it one year and it didn’t work.’” HW

Herefords Go Global

Herefords in the Outback Adrian Spencer and his family of Ironbark Herefords have been raising Hereford cattle in the Barraba district of Australia for more than 80 years. by Bridget Beran

ettled into the eastern edge of Australia, Ironbark Herefords has grown into the largest registered Hereford operation in the country, it also expanded its views to Russia, Kazakhstan and the U.S. Originally started as a bullbreeding unit for the Ironbark Pastoral Company in 1933, Ironbark Herefords now raises seedstock, produces commercial cows and calves, backgrounds feeder steers, and cattle for the domestic and international markets.

Adrian Spencer’s family has been raising Hereford cattle in eastern Australia for 82 years.

Adrian Spencer says his family also uses a buyback program with their bull clients’ steers so hat they can keep accurate records of exactly how their bulls’ progeny are performing. Spencer’s grandfather, Edward “Ted” Spencer, founded the Ironbark Pastoral Company, and the family has continued to be active and successful at Ironbark Herefords. As some of the first Europeans to settle in the Barraba area, the Spencers and their operation have a long history in agriculture. Adrian is now passing Hereford.org


on his love of the breed to his three children, Hugh, Ben and Isabella. “I’ve always grown up with deep respect for the forbearers — my mother and father David and Margaret Spencer and my grandfather — as they gave many sacrifices in their lives so the young people could live a free and prosperous existence,” Adrian says. Adrian’s father served in World War II, and his mother’s father served in both World War I and World War II, and Adrian says this tradition of service meant that he grew up with high expectations of being successful with what was left in his care. And Ironbark Herefords has risen to the occasion, hosting big sales and exporting Hereford cattle to other areas of the globe. Adrian recalls when they shipped about 1,800 heifers to Russia four years ago as one of their proudest moments. “We were always brought up to enjoy our work,” Spencer says. “Being a good stockman has been second nature to us and we have always enjoyed it.”

Committed to growth The Spencers now run about 1,400 registered Hereford cows with another 400 commercial cows and host their annual bull sale in August. As they go into their 42nd annual sale, Adrian says they expect to sell about 200 bulls, as per the usual. They also often sell around 150 more bulls through private treaty. The sale of females, which are exported throughout the year, is often handled by other breeding programs. “We background 3,500 steers in a 12-month period for our export and domestic feedlot,” Adrian explains. “Our cows are all purebred Hereford cows, and the steers are a multitude of breeds being predominantly Hereford and black baldie. We try to buy at least a 50% infused Hereford to enable the cattle to grade MSA [Meat Standards Australia].” While he may have been born into the breed, Adrian says his experience with Herefords internationally has continually reassured him why the breed was the right choice. After working in the U.S. in the mid-80s, he says he gained a deep appreciation for the genetic strength of the breed. “I have seen Hereford cattle in South America, Canada, Russia and Kazakhstan, so I have been fortunate to see that Herefords have global demand, that is a factor in why I breed Herefords,” Adrian says. The dry, arid landscape of Australia also encouraged Ironbark to stand by its hardy Hereford cattle. Especially after facing droughts, Adrian says that Herefords can handle the challenge of surviving in Australia better than any other breed. Weather challenges can often present stress and fertility issues for cattle Down Under, but Adrian has found Ironbark’s Hereford cows can tough Hereford.org

through the rough times and still produce a calf each year. Despite its harsh climate, he wouldn’t trade his homeland for anything. “Australia is still the land of opportunity,” Adrian says. “I guess what really grabs me about it all is the wide open spaces, a lot of wonderful cattle country and we currently have a very good federal government that is right behind agriculture and with the growing demand for quality beef into Southeast Asia, I think the best times in agriculture are ahead of us. For young people who are capable, agriculture has an exciting future for them.”

American influence While Australia may be home, Adrian has also made great connections abroad, especially in the U.S. He worked for BB Cattle Co., Connell, Wash.; Lonestar Hereford Ranch, Henrietta, Texas; and continued on page 90...

But genetically you have a big responsibility because America is where the genetic building in beef cattle comes from.” HW Adrian Spencer says that Herefords can handle surviving in Australia better than any other breed.

Kazakhstan shipping livestock exports several times a month, imported nearly 20,000 head of cattle as of 2013. and these exports are helping add value to the U.S. continued on page 96... livestock sector. What’s prompting this export growth? Clayton says foreign governments are realizing having the ability to produce at least some of their own food is integral to their national security — and this is becoming ever more important as the global population expands.

Food security “Many of the elderly leaders in countries know and recognize that hungry people are dangerous people,” Clayton says. “They want to produce a certain amount of their own food regardless of the cost of production — and knowing that they could import food at a lesser cost.” He adds that some foreign governments are offering subsidies to help encourage producers to import livestock genetics. As examples, the Russian government has offered $1,000-$1,400 per head of animals imported to producers who import cattle that are three-quarter-blood or higher-percentage breeding; Kazakhstan has offered a similar subsidy, but cattle must be registered purebreds. Clayton notes there is demand for all breeds of beef cattle and there is growing interest in expected progeny differences (EPDs) and efficient genetics, for which the United States is recognized as a leader.

...Export Ins and Outs continued from page 95

However, he notes that Kazakhstan has become increasingly difficult to work with due to stringent health regulations. During the last two years with U.S. prices at record levels, Clayton says exports to most countries slowed somewhat. Clayton says transportation costs and live cattle prices coming down are helping prompt export interest again. However, the U.S. dollar is still strong which also keeps exports moderate. Looking ahead with these conditions, he says export interest from Russia is “waking up again.” In December 2015, he coordinated the very first shipment of nearly 1,500 dairy cattle to Vietnam, and anticipates beef cattle exports to that country will follow. Clayton says Sudan and Algeria also have interest in U.S. cattle. After extensive drought the last several years in Mexico, Clayton says, opportunities also exist to export to Mexico for both U.S. beef and dairy cattle. Iraq and Jordan are also emerging markets for livestock, particularly dairy, and Clayton sees potential in the Ukraine. It opened its borders in the fall of 2013 after seven years of negotiating. With its rich topsoil, he says the Ukraine has the potential to be the breadbasket for Eastern Europe. Regarding exports eventually opening to China, Clayton says, “Interest from China is strong and progress is

Export challenges to consider Livestock export specialist Tony Clayton notes that in spite of the term “free trade,” exporting is “not an easy process.” As one example, he says an increasing challenge is simply a lack of knowledge about livestock, as well as bloodtesting and quarantine-process protocols, by negotiators. “We are now depending on negotiators on both sides of the process that are two, maybe three, generations removed from the farm,” Clayton says. Additionally, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)–Veterinary Services (VS) reorganized in 2013 into six regions. This reorganization has reduced the number of staff and access to that staff. He cites the paperwork requirements by importing governments for pedigree information as another cumbersome challenge and says costs for health papers and other fees on the U.S. side have skyrocketed, increasing from an average of $40 for the first animal to $144 for the first animal and additional charges for every animal on the certificate. Transportation and animal welfare are other emerging concerns with regard to exporting live animals. “Airlines are pulling in the requirements on the number of animals we can put on a 747, and shipping animals on a boat takes about 17 to 25 days, so we’ve got to be careful of animal well-being,” Clayton concludes. HW

being made.” That market, he notes, will first open to boxed beef but live cattle will follow. Clayton hopes that within the next three years that access may occur.

Factors to consider While the export opportunities look optimistic, several factors will influence just how much the United States is able to capitalize on them. Clayton notes that disease outbreaks are a major concern. “The U.S. knows firsthand how quickly export doors close and how long they take to reopen from their experience with BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) detection in 2003,” he explains. Clayton says for many countries dealing with FMD (foot-and-mouth disease) has become a common occurrence, with thousands of animals depopulated to control the disease. Egypt is a recent example, and Clayton says Korea deals with FMD about every three years. FMD has not been detected in the United States since 1929, and Clayton says, “We have to keep it out. We’ve got to do our due diligence. If it happens, it will shut down the opportunities for U.S. livestock exports.” Clayton says incidences of tuberculosis and the Schmallenberg virus that were discovered in Europe in 2011 result in many countries banning cattle from countries (or states) where those concerns exist. For example, because of tuberculosis in California, producers there are not allowed to export live cattle to Russia. The Schmallenberg virus is preventing European cattle from going to Russia, Egypt, Lebanon and other countries. Clayton underscores how important it is to try keeping disease issues out of the United States so export opportunities can continue. Additional livestock diseases he monitors include bluetongue, avian influenza, West Nile virus, H1N1 (swine flu) and the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) in swine. Because of these disease concerns, Clayton is a proponent of a national animal identification (ID) system in the United States. “Animal ID is needed to get — and keep — the U.S. trading with some of these countries,” he concludes. “The U.S. needs to get their arms around it to take this cattle market to the next level.” During the past three years, Clayton says the U.S. beef industry has been “interesting” as it has dealt with the lowest cattle inventory in America since 1952. However, he believes the United States still has many opportunities for livestock exports ahead and says, “The outlook is still favorable. The global population is growing, there are only a certain number of countries that can export live cattle, and people will have to eat.” HW Hereford.org

Shipping semen and/or embryos Many breeders send semen or embryos to other countries because shipping them is a little easier than sending live animals. However, there are still some regulations that must be followed, and the semen or embryos need to be kept at the proper temperature. “Breeders can talk to their state veterinarian, or a federally accredited veterinarian, to become familiar with the requirements for international transport,” says Ashley Stokes, assistant dean for admissions and student services at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University. Producers can often ship semen or embryos to countries when importations of live animals are prohibited. There are strict regulations for preparing semen or embryos for export. If breeders wish to export embryos internationally, they need to use Certified Semen Services (CSS) approved semen and to use a company that has an accredited veterinarian in the American Embryo Transfer Association to collect and prepare those embryos for export. HW

addition, she stresses the importance of the animals being healthy and strong before the trip because transporting an animal that is not well is not ideal. For long-haul transportation, health checks are part of the protocol to make sure the animals are OK and safe to be transported, for their health and well-being and for the benefit of other animals that might be transported with them. “The preparation is critical for success of that transport,” she says.

Cow-tainers Animals that travel by air or sea are placed in special containers that are safe for them to be in for the duration of the trip. Modified 747 aircrafts with specialized cargo containers are often used for transporting livestock. In other instances, cattle are sent by ship. Most of Stokes’ work has focused with overseas shipping. She explains some ships are equipped with stock pens, but the most common containers she has worked with are called “cow-tainers.” “These are custom-built, double-level containers that have really good ventilation, non-slip flooring, and feed and water facilities built in so the cattle have access to feed and water throughout the transport. They also have a way for cleaning them out daily,” Stokes says. She further explains the cow-tainer is a 40-foot double-decker container that holds several animals. It can be put onto a truck and then loaded onto a ship.

“It is best if the cattle are already used to the group they will be with. They have room to stand, lie down, look out the windows, and they do very well in these,” she says. Stokes explains the cattle are typically grouped with their traveling companions at the ranch ahead of time, so they are well acquainted and compatible. Then they are loaded into the cow-tainers at the home ranch and stay in those during the truck ride to the ship. The containers may rest on the dock for a short time until they are loaded into the ship — onto the lower deck levels where they are kept well away from refrigeration containers that expel exhaust. The cow-tainers are placed in the center of the ship, where the animals will experience the least amount of movement. Stokes was involved in a study that observed cattle during transport to see how well they were doing — making sure that the process wasn’t too stressful and as good as it could be. “We always need to evaluate how we are doing things and always look to improve,” she says. “So we checked their temperatures, which can be one indication of stress. As animals move around and become agitated or tense they create a lot of body heat with all that muscle mass. We looked at everything, even collecting white blood cells from blood samples, looking at some of the stress indicators.” She notes there was little stress when the cattle first got into their containers and individuals conducting the study found the stress level returned to normal quickly. She reported the body temperatures, which they were initially concerned about in the tropical environment, never rose into dangerous ranges during the study. Since the containers have good ventilation with windows, she says she thinks that helped. Stokes and her team of researchers collected data from shipments of heifers sent from Hawaii to the mainland U.S. to evaluate the health and safety of the cattle in the cow-tainers. To monitor the animals’ temperatures, vaginal sensors were inserted. All of the containers were equipped with cameras and sensors to measure humidity and temperature. The cameras took photos every 10 minutes and gave clues to the animals’ behavior and comfort. In these shipments, the heifers lived in their containers for five days as they crossed the ocean from Hawaii to the port at Seattle, Wash., and were then trucked to Ellensburg, Wash. Winter shipments went to California to avoid rough seas and colder weather. Stokes explains the camera footage documenting the trip in its entirety showed the cattle to be very comfortable on their voyage. Depending on how far they are going, they will be on the ship for several days, so it was positive to see cattle adjusted to Hereford.org

traveling well. In addition to monitoring the cattle with cameras, individuals involved in the shipping process also hire people to travel with the cattle should there be any trouble. “We always send stock-tenders with them. We have people who go through training programs and know all the protocols and how to handle cattle and various situations. Those people stay with the cattle all the time, and know who to call if there’s an issue. The ship has satellite phones, so that’s not a problem,” Stokes explains. The stock-tenders start out with the cattle at the home ranch and travel with them on the ship or plane until they get to the receiving ranch. This arrangement gives the cattle an additional sense of security, if they are familiar with the people who are tending to them. “It’s been a great process, and cattlemen have been very progressive and forward-thinking in how they do the transportation,” Stokes says. “They put a lot of heart into what they do. We’ve been very happy with this process.” HW

Finding help For more information on transport and finding professionals to help with a shipment of cattle, check animaltransportationassociation.org, the website for the Animal Transportation Association (ATA). It has a directory where you can select which species you are working with. Assistant dean for admissions and student services at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University Ashley Stokes says the directory indicates there are 64 organizations that handle transport and their information is available on the ATA website. “There are companies with professional people who do this every day; they can help get cattle producers connected with the right members of this organization. I am a member of this organization, and I’ve worked with and gotten to know a number of people who are international transporters, and they do a great job. They can help producers a lot,” Stokes says. HW

Herefords Go Global

An International Experience When she was just 17, Rosie Douglas left her family’s Hereford farm to travel and experience agriculture all around the world. by Bridget Beran

T

hough sending your child on a yearlong journey around the world may seem like every parent’s nightmare, for the Douglas family, it was the perfect fit. After Rosie Douglas finished her final year of high school in 2013, she decided to take a skip year and left her family’s Hereford farm in Mains of Aires, Scotland, to see agriculture in the rest of the world. “I was young for my year and still not entirely sure what I wanted to do at university, so I thought it was a good idea to travel before I started university and a career,” Rosie explains. “I have always loved traveling. It was a big adventure leaving home at 17 and not really knowing what to expect, but it was worth every minute.”

This wasn’t a new concept for the Douglas family as Rosie’s father, John, had also taken a skip year to work before he completed a two-year agricultural program at the West of Scotland Agricultural College. “At 17 years I was too young and without any management experience to benefit from the management and business part of the course,” John says. “I want all our four daughters to travel and pick up alternative views and methods so that whatever they study they can identify the most relevant lessons from their training for their future occupation.” After a school trip to see agriculture in northern Scotland, Rosie returned and told

Hereford.org


her family she wanted to pursue a career in agriculture. She had learned the world’s population was growing and she wanted to make sure people were fed. Her father said she wouldn’t be able to feed the whole world on just Hereford beef, so she better learn about other aspects of the production agriculture industry.

American adventures The first stop on Rosie’s journey was B&D Herefords, Claflin, Kan., a Line One Hereford operation. This was an ideal choice for her dad, who had been exclusively using American Line One Hereford genetics in the Douglases’ herd since 2005. After meeting Craig and Gerald Beran Jr. at the National Western Stock Show, Rosie and the Berans became good friends, and Rosie stayed with Craig’s family during her time in America. The Douglas family’s farm, Ervie Herefords, had previously purchased embryos from B&D Herefords, so Rosie was able to see the herd from which some of their calves had originated. Because her three-month stay in the U.S. overlapped with the American Royal, she was able to attend the American Hereford Association Annual Meeting with the Beran family and to help on a showing and fitting crew with John Herbel for the weekend. She also had the opportunity to make a 14-hour drive with Craig and Junior to Holden Herefords female sale in Valier, Mont., where some of their other genetics originate. Rosie says this trip was one of her favorite memories, along with family barbecues, attending Kansas State University (K-State) football games and discovering Reese’s peanut butter cups.

Rosie (r) and her sister, Olivia (l), are pictured in Kansas in summer 2015.

Also, while in Kansas, Rosie visited K-State and sat in on classes for a week. This experience helped her decide to continue her education in the U.S. “My trip to the states in 2013 was amazing and a real eye-opener,” Rosie says. “Everyone I met was so welcoming. The livestock operation systems were impressive and it was refreshing to see such a positive outlook for the agricultural industry. It also seems to me that the universities in America have a lot of funding for agricultural based research.” continued on page 110...

While in Kansas, Rosie immersed herself in American agriculture and worked like a member of the family at B&D Herefords.

...An International Experience continued from page 109

After a visit to South Dakota in 2015, she decided to continue her schooling at South Dakota State University and to study range science. She started school there in August 2015. “I chose this program because it incorporates livestock management and pasture care. It also ties in the importance of sustainability and ecology, which I believe in this day and age is an important issue for any business or institution,” Rosie explains. “I really liked the university and the town of Brookings. The university has great facilities and I have a chance to study a subject I feel passionate about.”

Globetrotting John joined her for the last part of her time in Kansas and flew with her to Uruguay, where she would stay for a month. She stayed with Enrique and Patricia Larraechea, friends of her parents and her maternal grandparents, for part of her trip. Jimmy Basson, her maternal grandfather, met the Larraecheas when the World Hereford Conference was hosted in South Africa, and they’ve been good friends ever since. She also stayed with Nicolas Clement and his family for a while. Nicolas

worked for John for six months while Nicolas was pursuing his graduate degree in agronomy. While in Uruguay, she also stayed with Pedro Arocena and his family. Much like Nicolas, Pedro worked for John when Pedro was young. Pedro showed Rosie around the sites of Colonia, Uruguay. Some of her favorite memories included the beaches and costal views at Punta del Este and watching a team of men shearing Romeny sheep in their bare feet while she was at the Larrachea’s. Her family also raises sheep, so Rosie visited several sheep stations while on her journey. From Uruguay, Rosie flew 27 hours to Perth, Australia. She stayed with the House family, cousins of her grandparents, and says she loved working with their sheep in the heat with Annabel House and their trusty dog named Pig. Rosie also got to help lead a convoy of grain bins and combine harvesters down the highway. Another highlight of her trip was learning how to surf at Ocean Beach, Dennmark, Australia. After working for two weeks on the sheep station near Kojunup, she spent Christmas with her One of Rosie’s favorite memories from her time in Uruguay was watching men grandparents who live in Perth. In shearing sheep. a big change from Christmas in

Experience with Ervie In all her travels, Rosie Douglas, Mains of Aires, Scotland, says the experience from her own ranch stayed with her. While every farm she visited had its great aspects, nothing quite compared to home. Her family’s farm, Ervie Herefords, runs about 180 American Line One Herefords as its main focus with a few Aberdeen Angus cows, as well as 40 registered Texel and 350 commercial Romney sheep. While the Douglases also have a couple of horses for work, John, her father, laughs that they’ve yet to sell one. “The scale of livestock and arable farms is much less extensive to those you would see elsewhere,” Rosie explains. “We cannot compete on an international level in terms of production output due to our high input costs and agricultural policies that we have to comply with. There are a number of branding schemes e.g. Scotch Quality Beef and Lamb that

110

/ July 2016

aim to sell produce to a premium niche market which gives livestock farmers like ourselves a better price.” When she was 9 years old, Rosie showed her first heifer, Ervie Peach, and continued to show with her younger sisters until she graduated from high school. The Douglas family has been farming at Mains of Aires since John’s grandfather, also John Douglas, bought the estate in 1929. Though the farm had a large dairy, with pigs and potatoes as secondary enterprises, John’s grandfather also became involved in sheep production.

Farming families Rosie’s grandfather, John Telfer Douglas, then took over the farm and established Ervie Herefords in 1969, while the Hereford breed was at its height of popularity in Scotland. Rosie’s parents, John Douglas and Alexandra Basson,

both from Hereford farm families, married in 1993 while the Hereford breed was in a low point of commercial popularity in the United Kingdom. Alexandra’s parents ran the successful Wye Not Hereford Farm in South Africa. “It was at Avalon I saw the impact American Hereford genetics were having and became determined to source the same bloodlines for our Ervie herd,” John explains. “On the outset of the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) beef crisis in Britain, Alexandra and I decided to disperse our commercial cross-bred beef cows and expand our pedigree Hereford herd in an attempt to isolate us from the dreaded disease. To make this a success we had to improve our marketing and also focus entirely on input costs and profit. To this end we’re still hanging in there.” Following the example of their fathers, who were both enthusiastic

much colder Scotland, she recalls having a barbecue on the beach with her grandparents and cousins in Australia. Following the holidays, she moved on to South Africa. This was an extra special portion of the trip because Rosie’s maternal grandparents raised Herefords there and her mother grew up in the area. She stayed with Lisa Amm, a former classmate of her mother’s, and her family at Alpha Estates, Ladybrand, South Africa. The fruit orchards, impressive Free State thunder storms and the Alpha Appaloosa horses all were a part of making her stay in South Africa special. “They had a stone walled swimming pool which served as a good way to cool down after a long horse ride,” Rosie says. “And I loved helping to milk and making cheese with Lisa.” While spending many months traveling around the world was certainly a lot of fun, the lessons Rosie learned from her international experience have widened her views of agriculture and exposed her to a multitude of different ways of doing things. She worked at home for seven months before starting to study agriculture in Edinburgh, Scotland, and John says her experience showed. “She was constantly relating to her work and observations on all the places she had visited and comparing and discussing our differences and similarities,” John says. “I think her travels opened her mind and made her constantly look for ways we could tweak the way we go about our farming Hereford breeders, John says it was an easy decision for them to continue breeding Hereford cattle. “Herefords are hardy and suit the grazing on the west of Britain better than most other beef breeds and require lower inputs than many,” John says. “Growing up with them I firstly became keen on showing them in order to promote our sale bulls. Nowadays it is improving the natural performance and consistency of our herd, which is my chief objective and sales tool.”

Scottish similarities Though the Douglases have incorporated a lot of American Hereford genetics, there are still differences between Scottish agriculture and American agriculture. With far fewer acres, Scottish farms are still able to be very productive due to the temperate climate. John says the smaller scale of Hereford.org

Rosie’s time in South Africa proved to be a special time because her mother grew up there. She stayed with a family friend who had fruit orchards and Appaloosa horses.

chores. It also made me justify my reasons for the way I farm and the choices and decisions I make. Fortunately I am generally quite stubborn when it comes to change and given time I usually could come up with a reason.” He adds that all farming operations Rosie experienced were quite different from one another, but each was very successful in its particular field. “Our plan was that it would broaden her outlook and allow her to decide what interested and inspired her most.” However, Rosie says there were also some things about the agriculture industry that seem universal. “Forgetting the different climates, topographies, economies and just ways of doing things every place I visited showed that farmers and ranchers all share a love, a passion and determination for agriculture whether it be cattle or crops, horses or vegetables,” Rosie says. HW

family farms is the biggest difference he has found. Their farm sits at sea level, and while their fields can be exposed to Atlantic storms and can have a rainfall up to 60 inches a year, the climate is fairly mild and makes for easy winters. In Scotland excess rain is a common problem, and their fields all have an underground drainage system. John explains that they also usually winter their cattle on kale, stubble or in outdoor concrete corrals with straw areas to lie on. However, John, who has traveled to South Africa, Canada, Australia and the U.S., says there are far more similarities than differences. In fact, his trip to Kansas reminded him greatly of the U.K. But the regulations and restrictions put on Scottish agriculture present their own set of challenges. “We’re operating in a lower league in comparison to the volume and diversity of agricultural output. Having

said that, it is my opinion that we would be much more competitive and productive if our focus was purely on our farming business without the distortions to our market from the Common Agricultural Policy emanating from Brussels with its increasingly difficult compliance rules and regulations,” John explains. While Scottish agriculture may vary from American agriculture, Rosie says there are some old traditions that she holds dear, especially at the sale barn. “I do enjoy some of the old farming traditions that you can still see today especially at the cattle auctions; the pedigree cattle are sold in guineas (a former British coin worth 21 shillings £1.05) instead of pounds,” Rosie explains. “Also the person selling is expected to give the buyer some luck penny (money back) as a good luck token.” HW

Herefords Go Global

International Beef Trade Global trade is a hot topic for cattlemen and politicians. by Julie Mais

B

eef is what’s for dinner around the world, and the opportunities for the United States to provide what’s on the plate at mealtime are expanding — but not without a few roadblocks. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) recently hosted a webinar to update cattlemen on the future opportunities for beef trade and the current atmosphere for trade policy.

Marketing beef globally Dan Halstrom, with the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF), says it’s the Federation’s mission to increase the value and profitability of U.S. beef exports by enhancing demand for beef products in the foreign marketplace. Halstrom says U.S. beef has experienced a long, steady regaining of market share the industry used to have prior to December 2003, when a

116

/ July 2016

Canadian-born cow was identified with BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) in Washington. He shared that for 2016 a little more than 1 million metric ton, valued at $6.3 billion, was exported last year — the second highest level of value of exports behind 2014, which was at $7.1 billion. Exporting to the global market added $278 per head slaughtered in 2015, Halstrom notes. 2015’s top volume markets included Mexico, Japan, Korea, Canada, the Middle East and China/ Hong Kong. “At USMEF, we’re not selling full sets overseas to these markets,” Halstrom says. “We are selling the right cuts to the right market to maximize value. Some markets are very important though there may not be much press about them.” Japan is consistently the top market for value, according to Halstrom. “The U.S. sold $1.3 billion

Hereford.org


in Japan last year, which is the largest margin market as well,” he says. Halstrom also noted a shift in Mexico’s purchasing habits. “Mexico was a price market,” he says. “That has been disproved the last few years with record-high beef prices. They continued to buy and buy in a big way.” When looking at the largest import markets around the world in terms of global beef trade in 2015, China, Hong Kong and Vietnam comprised the largest region, importing 29% of the total trade. The United States imported 21% with a sizeable portion of this number coming from lean trim to grind patties. Following are Japan, Russia and South Korea.

Growth drivers Numerous factors are driving growth in beef demand, according to Halstrom. The global population is currently 7.4 billion with 96% of that total being outside the U.S. There is a 78-80 million per year net growth in population. “There are more mouths to feed and more opportunity every year globally,” he says. Countries are witnessing economic growth. “Take a market like Panama. Three years ago Panama had 14% GDP (gross domestic product) growth rate. It’s cooled off since then but it’s still about 6%.” Halstrom says that another factor is in some key markets like Japan, South Korea and even Mexico; they cannot keep up with their demand domestically and will, therefore, import. USMEF is also keeping track of emerging and developing markets, for instance, Africa which has a population of 1 billion and growing. “It’s not very wealthy today, but at some point they are going to demand higher-quality beef,” Halstrom adds. Specific to demand for U.S. beef, Halstrom says, “We have an ace in our hand compared to other countries and that’s our reputation — one of a gold standard with a safe, high-quality and reliable supply of beef. When it comes to grain-fed beef the U.S. is a primary source.” Looking forward, Halstrom says the U.S. beef supply is rebounding. “Prices are historically high but moderating,” he says. “We don’t get hung up on price because they were buying in high and low prices.” Halstrom also adds that the U.S.’s biggest competitor, Australia, has been experiencing drought conditions and, therefore, beef supply is reduced. However, the country has been receiving rain and grass is starting to grow.

Trade policy NCBA Director of International Trade and Market Access Kent Bacus says, “It’s important to gain access to these countries by working with other governments and more importantly our government to open those opportunities for us.” Bacus says that passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will be an important feat for the Hereford.org

beef industry. “If TPP passes, beef will be one of the biggest winners in agriculture,” he explains. “If it fails or delays, we will be one of the biggest losers in ag. Roughly 80-85% of beef we produce is for domestic market, but we want to capitalize on sales of the entire carcass. We won’t sell beef tongue at the competitive price here as we would in Mexico or Japan. But right now we don’t have the same access as other countries do.” Japan is one of the U.S.’s biggest markets, and the Japanese love beef tongue, according to Bacus. “In 2015, Japan purchased $1.3 billion of U.S. beef with a 38.5% tariff. In January 2015, the Japan-Australia Trade Agreement took effect and gave Australia, a 10% tariff advantage over the U.S. herd. This caused a nearly $300 million loss in sales in 2015.” Therefore, he says TPP would level the playing field, and if it doesn’t pass, the U.S. would fall further behind in the Japanese market. “Domestically, the U.S. opposition says we are going to open the market up for us to be flooded from other countries,” Bacus says. “Other commodity groups and economic interests have speculated losses, but we have actually incurred real-time loss by not having TPP in place.” Another trade agreement top of mind for NCBA is the Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (T-TIP). Bacus says Europe is one of the largest economies in the world, but unfortunately U.S. sales to the European Union (EU) are small — $300 million and 24,300 metric tons marked up high. “The only product we are allowed to sell is beef from nonhormone treated cattle,” he says. The goal is for T-TIP to be comprehensive and to include agriculture, Bacus says. “A lot of EU interests want to keep ag out of it in order to avoid addressing restrictions they have on production standards. We want a level playing field.” Another opportunity noted by Bacus is gaining market access to China. “While we are not in formal negotiations for a bilateral agreement with China, we are in the process of trying to negotiate market access to China,” he says. U.S. beef was banned in China in 2003 following the BSE case. In 2006 China unilaterally reopened its market to de-boned beef from cattle under 30 months of age. However, beef had to meet 22 requirements that included traceability. In 2007 China included bone-in beef. “China based closing their market on BSE,” Bacus says. “However, the U.S. received negligible risk marks from OIE in 2012, which is safest designation.” For several years, the U.S. government has been in discussions with China, but moving forward remains a challenge. While the opportunity is there for greater market access to China, Bacus says he encourages a healthy dose of caution. HW

Herefords Go Global

Across the Border

Al Fenton of Fenton Hereford Ranch, Alberta, says his parents chose the Hereford breed 70 years ago because it was the most adaptable breed for their environment.

merican breeders have often taken advantage of the benefits of new bloodlines from other countries, and there are a number of Hereford breeders who utilize Canadian genetics. Shane Truby, Durango, Colo., has been purchasing Canadian Herefords for his seedstock business from several Canadian breeders, including Al Fenton from Alberta, for about eight years.

Truby Ranch Truby comes from a long line of Hereford breeders that date back more than 120 years. He says his family came to the United States from Tyrol, Austria, in 1900 and homesteaded the ranch they still manage today. Their cattle were always purebreds, but not papered until recent years. Truby says they have bought bulls from many breeders, one being Sandburg Herefords at Cedaredge, Colo. In fact, it was a visit there to pick up bought bulls that first sparked Truby’s interest in Canadian genetics. “When I pulled into Hugh Sandburg’s yard I saw some spectacular bulls and asked what they were,” he says. “Hugh said they were some Canadian bulls he’d purchased at the Calgary bull sale. I was so impressed with those bulls that I asked Hugh where they came from. He told me about some breeders in Alberta, including Al Fenton in Irma, Alta., Hans Ulrich, near Claresholm, and Andy Schuepbach at Lilybrook Herefords. That’s as far as the conversation went, but I couldn’t get those bulls out of my mind,” he says. It was on the drive home that Truby first told his wife, Jennifer, he wanted to look at some cattle in Canada. He says since she is a native of Canada, it was convenient to look at cattle during the next visit to see her family. “After I met those ranchers I got hooked on those cattle, and started bringing some home,” Truby says. Since then, Truby has bought semi loads of bred heifers and purchased bulls at the Calgary bull sale, the Medicine Hat bull sale, Andy Schuepbach’s production sale and Al Fenton’s production sale. Today, he says, about three-fourths of his herd is registered stock. All of his papered animals are Canadian, and most of them are from Al Fenton. He explains he has also bought about 60 heifers Hereford.org

over the years from Andy Schuepbach and Hans Ulrich at Lilybrook Herefords. “I can’t say enough good about the Canadian ranchers I deal with. They are always ready to bend over backward and go out of their way, beyond being a good neighbor. The excellent relationships we have are hopefully for a long, long time,” he says. Truby says he has grown a great appreciation over the years for the Canadian ranchers with whom he has done business. “The Fentons are an incredible family, as straight as an arrow, and so are the Schuepbachs. They are good people, with good livestock — no disappointments whatsoever,” Fenton says. “I plan on keeping this going with those Canadian breeders. It’s been a really good deal for me.” In addition to valuable relationships with the ranchers, he appreciates Canadian cattle because he says they are the kind that can thrive in any environment. In fact, Truby says some people in Louisiana wanted to buy bulls from him, and although he was at first skeptical of how his bulls would perform there, he has been pleasantly surprised with their performance. “These cattle can go from the harsh winters of Canada to that low wet country in Louisiana — with bugs that would eat you alive,” he says. “At first there was some concern about how they would handle it, but those cattle are so hardy that they can handle any environment and thrive. They are feed-efficient and continued on page 124...

also good-natured, with good disposition. Longevity in these Canadian Herefords is second to none.” Truby says the quality found in Herefords can aid in improving the cattle industry as a whole. “We want to show that these Herefords can help correct problems that have cropped up in the black breeds,” he says. “We started out with one semi-load of females and I’ve gone back every year and bought 30 to 40 heifers. So now we have our own purebred program going and are starting to get some doors opened up. People are taking a closer look at our cattle. I live in an area dominated by black cattle, but soon people will see the advantages of these Herefords for their longevity and growth. The F1 [black baldie] is the most sought-after cow in the commercial business.” Truby says he and Jennifer hope to continue building numbers and quality on the operation as their three sons, Granite, Flint and Quaid, get older. “I’m still a long ways from where I want to be, but we’re working at it,” he says. “Like I told Al Fenton, we are both paddling upstream and I’m behind him by several boats — but we are both trying to go the same direction.” During the many years in the business, the Fentons, now with a 700-cow operation, have seen many highs and lows. Truby says because of their years of experience, he still sees the value in utilizing their genetics. “It’s been a blessing for me to be able to utilize their bloodlines,” he says.

what you have to contend with when it comes time to sell any of these Canadian cattle — such as an older cow or bull.” Truby explains when at the sale barn, cattle that carry the CAN brand seem to fall short simply because of the Canadian name. In contrast, he says calves born to Canadian cows that he can put his brand on sell very easily. “I don’t want to discourage people and have them thinking they can’t do it, because they can — but it’s not easy,” Truby says. “I could have gone to many good breeders here in the U.S. and my distance and costs would be less. But the Canadian thing has worked consistently well for me and I can’t say enough good things about it.” In addition to working together to improve their Hereford genetics, Truby and Fenton broadened their partnership to include Quarter Horses. “I’ve raised registered Quarter Horses for 25 years and when Al comes down here to look at his stock to see how the bulls and heifers have grown out, he’s also seen my horses,” Truby adds. “He twisted my arm hard enough last year that I let him take one of my stallions to breed his mares for that year. So the relationship has been a pretty good deal for both of us.”

Fenton Herefords

Similar to the Trubys, Al and Lori Fenton have been raising Herefords for a long time. “My parents started this outfit in 1946,” Al Fenton says. “We started in the Hereford breed The downside and plus side because at that time it was the most adaptable breed Truby notes the positive aspects of bringing Canadian for our environment.

Last fall was the outfit’s 51st sale. Additionally, the Fenton’s have had a Quarter Horse broodmare band for the last 30 years and have started selling foals and geldings in their sale within the last ten years. Fenton recalls the first time Truby came to their place and says Truby was looking for cattle with more bone, hair and volume — Fenton’s cattle suited Truby’s eye for more reasons than one. These cattle work for a living, with minimal labor. He says he has two hired boys to help with the operation in addition to his family, who are all busy outside the operation. “In order for us to run this place, these cows have to be run as simple as possible, with the least amount of equipment. We hire all our seeding done and we just look after cattle,” he explains. Shane Truby says the Hereford breed can help improve the cattle industry because of their longevity and growth.

Herefords Go Global

Eyes on China The world’s most populous country offers vast opportunities for American agriculture. by Kindra Gordon

China’s growing middle class is seeking to include more protein and higher quality food in their diets. Pictured is Shanghai, China’s most populous city of more than 23 million.

ith nearly 1.4 billion people, China represents the number one market for U.S. agricultural goods – and that market is projected to continue growing. By 2025 China is anticipated to have 225 cities each with a population of at least one million people. For perspective, the U.S. currently has only nine cities with over one million people. Thus, China has a lot of people to feed, and its expanding middle class is seeking more protein and higher quality food — spelling opportunity for America’s agricultural industry. With four times the population of the United States and one-third less land, China isn’t able to produce enough food for its growing population and must turn to other countries for help. Currently, U.S. beef trade into China is stalled because of political wrangling on trade policy. But, trade experts remain optimistic. China is the largest market for U.S. agricultural exports, with a primary focus on pork and poultry, and many believe beef can capture the growing market — eventually. Particularly, as the standard of living and quality of life increase in China — including the development of many five-star hotels — demand pull is expected for U.S. beef.

The transition from poverty to the middle class means a projected 300 to 400 million Chinese will move from rural areas into waiting high-rise apartments. Many of these concrete giants are already built and sitting vacant. This migration is the equivalent of the entire U.S. population moving from the farm into a city. It’s an important prediction because consumption of better food, such as beef and milk, increases significantly among city dwellers. Seitz confirms China’s and other Asian countries’ interest in beef is real. “There is a growing demand for beef. It is viewed as a healthy food,” he reports. And, along with that, Seitz says “luxury beef” is especially in demand because status is very important in Eastern culture.

Where will the food come from?

China wants to produce much of its own food supply for this future growth. Thus its agricultural industry — particularly swine operations, dairies and some beef operations — is working quickly to modernize. Of the effort, one Chinese insider put Consumerism rising it this way: “Europe took more than 100 years to As the Chinese middle class improves, allowing modernize; The U.S. took 80 years to do it. Mexico more disposable income, the economy in did it in 50 years. China is trying to do it in 10 China is thriving. Some examples: to 15 years.

Hereford breeder Sharon Wyman preserves a historic barn that has housed cattle for more than 100 years. by Kayla M. Wilkins

M The barn, more than a century old, has housed livestock since the beginning and Hereford cattle shortly after the Wymans took ownership in 1983.

Her Barn, Her Story

ore than 100 years of production agriculture has taken place upon its sturdy stone foundation. There have been sounds of livestock and sights of hard working ranchers in and out of its big, red doors since the beginning. A number of memories have been made within the paintchipped walls of the iconic barn that sits in the countryside in northern Michigan. If those walls could talk, one could listen for hours about the rich history of livestock production but, more specifically, about the Hereford cattle that have been raised within its mighty structure. Over the years, the barn has been home to countless prize-winning

Sharon and her family received the 2016 Barn of the Year award at the Michigan Barn Preservation Network’s award ceremony.

Herefords that were exhibited across the country, bringing back awards now hanging across its weathered beams. This historic barn has witnessed many successes, but one of the most recent accomplishments is a bit different from the rest. In May, Sharon Wyman’s barn, which resides on Pleasant View Ranch between Alpena and Posen, Mich., was recognized by the Michigan Barn Preservation Network Awards Committee as the Barn of the Year in the continued family or private agricultural use category.

What an honor The Michigan Barn Preservation Network provides opportunity for agricultural history enthusiasts across the state to participate in the Barn of the Year contest, where judges score participants’ restored barns based upon the barns’ integrity, uniqueness and merit. The program has been active for more than 20 years and continues to grow with entries flooding in yearly. Jerry Damon, chairman of the award committee, says every barn has a story to tell, but it is the ones that bring something extra to the table that go on to be recognized with high honors. In the case of the Pleasant View Ranch barn, Damon notes not only was there a compelling story of rich history but it was refreshing for judges to see a barn still actively hosting production agriculture. “It is fun when you have an active farm from a judge’s standpoint,” Damon says. “You get to look at the barn for what it was originally built for.” Maintaining the originality of the structure has always been important to the Wyman family. When Sharon and her late husband purchased the property in 1983, they knew the barn would require some extra care along the way, but they also knew it was worth the added effort. Hereford.org

The barn is still home to Hereford cattle today.

“This old northern Michigan gem has been serving its original purpose of housing cattle for over 100 years,” Sharon says. “We have done our best to preserve this part of Michigan’s heritage.”

The Hereford history The Hereford tradition runs deep for Sharon and her operation. Two short years after purchasing the barn, the Wymans began filling it with Hereford show heifers and not much has changed since. “The Herefords are a really big deal in this,” Sharon says. “The barn is the heart of the whole ranch and how we run this place.” She reflects on the moment when their first heifer stepped foot into the barn and the excitement she felt. Her passion and excitement only grew after much success over the years. Sharon, her husband and two sons exhibited cattle in their home state and across the country at the National Western Stock Show in Denver and the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville. In addition, they began developing their own herd, growing it to 100 head during the farm’s prime.

Forage Tips from the Pros Managing pastures to maximize production and efficiency while curbing costs. by Kindra Gordon

A

s the summer grazing season sets in, producers should access their pasture management practices. An important question to ponder: Are you using your forage resources to their full potential? For some perspective, Garry Lacefield, a longtime forage specialist with the University of Kentucky, suggests producers think about efficiency, sustainability and profitability. That said, he shares several farmer feel-good statistics:

• In 1950 the average farmer

fed 18 people. In 2015 the average farmer produced enough to feed 169 people.

• In 1950 consumers spent 22%

of their take-home pay on food. In 2015 consumers spend 9.5% of income on food.

150

“That’s efficiency,” notes Lacefield, and a testament to the productivity of and advancements in American agriculture. But Lacefield

/ July 2016

notes some challenging statistics as well:

• Food production must

increase 50-70% to supply enough food for the 9-plus billion people who will populate the planet by 2050.

• It’s estimated 70-100% more animal protein (meat and dairy) will be needed with this increased population.

Lacefield acknowledges grain feeding will always exist, but he believes opportunities must be explored to improve forage management and use to lessen time on grain, which in turn may reduce costs. With regard to sustainable food production, Lacefield emphasizes that the question must always be asked: “How much did it cost to get there?” He says a producer’s guiding principles with regard to high quality forage production should be 1) establish for stand, 2) produce for yield, 3) harvest for quality and 4) market for profit. Lacefield also suggests that producers keep the acronym “VALUE” in mind. He explains that it stands for:

V = vegetation provides higher forage quality vs. forage stands with seed heads;

A = availability of forages;

L = legumes are beneficial if they fit your environment;

U = utilization, which can be enhanced with cross-fencing and rotational grazing; and

E = efficiency, which requires attention not only to forages, but also to herd health and genetics.

• There has been a loss of

1 million acres of agricultural land in the U.S. each year for the past 25 years.

Within that framework, American farmers must address the challenges ahead and continue to produce the food, fiber and fuel to supply the world’s needs. Lacefield and his colleague Don Ball, professor emeritus at Auburn University, believe better management of forages will be essential to those challenges.

More points to ponder From his perspective, Ball says to improve profitability, there are several strategies to evaluate — topping the list: Know your forage crop options and your animal nutritional needs. Additional strategies include exercising good grazing management, minimizing

stored-feed needs and soil testing, among others. Lacefield and Ball also advocate the use of legumes whenever feasible, calling them “forage crop superstars.” They explain that through nitrogen fixation, legumes boost plant production and forage quality, which can help lower cost of gain and extend the grazing season. Regarding hay, this duo cautions against feeding poor quality hay. Ball says it “brings double woe” because intake declines and digestion is slowed. Ball also emphasizes that most producers lose money because of poor hay storage practices — resulting in reduced quality hay. Most importantly, Ball emphasizes, “Results require investments. If you think about the best managers you know, they rarely get something for nothing.” Lacefield concludes, “The goal should be to have a system that will optimize the number of days grazing and minimize the number of days using stored feed. Every day grazed is money saved.”

Manage weeds, too With regard to pasture productivity and profitability, Dow AgroSciences’ Scott Flynn says, “The easiest and cheapest way to improve profitability is to improve pastures.” Flynn estimates that particularly in high rainfall areas, landowners give up about 30% of their pasture’s potential due to lack of weed control. He adds, “Pastures are a cheap source of feed for cattle,” — making them worth the investment to renovate or improve.

That said, Flynn emphasizes pasture improvements are not something accomplished in a single day. “It may take a year of planning or a few growing seasons to plan and address issues before you are ready to plant.” Among the important considerations for pasture improvements, Flynn notes that weeds and brush should be controlled; then the needs of the operation should be identified before forages are selected.

Once it’s time to plant, timing of planting, seedbed preparation, soil fertility testing, equipment used and investing in certified seed are important, he underscores. He also emphasizes the need to have a plan to address weed issues after planting to ensure long-term success of the pasture improvements.

An Update for Exhibitors by Bailey Clanton, National Shows Coordinator and Youth Activities Assistant

As 2016 is well underway, the American Hereford Association (AHA) continues to improve programs and processes for breeders, exhibitors and the Association. The AHA has a few changes to the check-in processes at national shows, new requirements for point shows and show awards, and additions to the AHA show rules. With the increased interest for Hereford cattle in the showring year after year, the AHA has updated its check-in process not only to accommodate the growing numbers, but to decrease the time it takes to process the increasing number of cattle. Change is a big part of being successful, and as the Hereford breed continues to grow, the AHA must adapt to that change and embrace it to the fullest. As the Association focuses on the future and continues to improve programs and processes, on behalf of the AHA, I can’t help but say thank you to each and every one of you for your patience and for embracing the changes of the AHA and, of course, always supporting the Association and its staff members as well as one another. HW

Check-in process

During the 2015 North American International Livestock Expo, the AHA stamped its first AHA registration paper with “tattoo verified.” From here on any animal that has a paper stamped “AHA verified” will not need to come through the check-in line. However, the papers of these animals will still need to be processed during the allotted check-in time at any of the following national shows:

• Junior National Hereford Expo • Keystone International Livestock Expo • American Royal Livestock Show • North American International Livestock Expo • Western Nugget Hereford Show • National Western Stock Show • Southwestern Exposition Stock Show Note: At any of the state and regional Hereford shows, stamped papers will be honored at the discretion of the show management.

160

/ July 2016

AHA point shows and awards For the 2016-17 AHA point shows, the Association has set a few new requirements for qualified shows. It is very important that the AHA receive adequate information of the animals shown to ensure proper credit and recognition are given.

• Official results from the show staff must be submitted within 30 days of completion of the show

• Results must contain the following: › Eight-digit AHA registration number › Complete registration name as recorded in the

AHA registration system › Owner(s) as listed on the papers from the AHA

registration system

• In order for results to be included in the calculation for show animals of the year, shows must have at least 25 head exhibited at the show

• Shows that are listed as a national or regional point show as specified by the AHA show and sale committee will submit results to Bailey Clanton with the AHA at bclanton@hereford.org or mail them to: American Hereford Association Attn: Bailey Clanton P.O. Box 014059 Kansas City, MO 64101 The AHA has also altered the awards that will be given to show winners each year. At the 2017 AHA Annual Meeting and American Royal National Hereford Show in Kansas City, Mo., the Association will now recognize four national show animals of the year, continue to award 16 regional show animals of the year and recognize eight regional premier exhibitors of the year.

• National Show Bull and Female of the Year for horned and polled

• Regional Show Bull and Female of the Year for horned and polled

• Regional Premier Exhibitor for horned and polled National Western Stock Show (NWSS) rules At the 2017 NWSS, exhibitors with females in the spring and junior yearling divisions must be confirmed pregnant within 45 days of show by a licensed veterinarian or by blood test or show with a calf at side. Exhibitors with bulls born before Dec. 1, 2015, are required to provide a licensed veterinarian’s statement indicating the bull has been semen checked and evaluated as fertile. Semen evaluation is to occur within 90 days of the show. These statements must be provided to the AHA staff at check-in. These rules are for cattle showing at the NWSS only. Hereford.org

HEREFORD MOM DIARIES Staying the Course

by Christy Couch Lee

The similarities between running a marathon and being a show mom are greater than you might think. I really don’t know the woman I’ve become. You see, the junior high version of me could barely pass the one-mile-run test in PE. And she hated every minute. But the 30-something version of me decided my next adventure in torture and exhilaration should include running a marathon — 26.2 miles of fun, or something like that. And I completed the challenge recently at the Illinois Marathon held in Champaign, Ill., as a member of Illinois Team BEEF. Last year, Team BEEF began in Illinois with the leadership of My Illinois Team BEEF teammates are an incredible support fellow show mom, Emily Webel system, and we couldn’t have more fun promoting beef to and the Illinois Beef Association. athletes across the state. And with show moms Jodi McMillan and Jill Frueh, we Hopefully, my children can pick up completed two half marathons and a a few of these lessons through their 10K together — along with other beef experience of watching their crazy 3 enthusiasts in the state. momma on this crazy journey. When the time came to sign up 1 You have to get out there and put for the Illinois Marathon this year, we in the work day in and day out. all chose our challenges. Those girls No excuses. Whether it’s lacing up rocked the half marathon again. And, the running shoes for a training well, I survived the marathon. run in the sleet and rain, when What did I discover during running sounds like the dumbest this experience? idea ever, or whether it’s pulling The life lessons learned through on the chore boots when you just running and through youth livestock don’t feel like it, by golly, you’ll shows overlap in amazing ways. never see the results you desire if you don’t do the work at home. The weather was

horrific for my first marathon. But, in life, we sometimes have to power through, even when conditions are less than favorable.

2 Great people exist, and they’ll help when you need it most. The weather on race day could not have been more horrific — rain, ranging from mist to torrential downpour. It was downright miserable. Yes, running through puddles in soaked clothes with raisin fingers and toes was one thing. But the entire 26 miles was lined with hundreds of volunteers and many

/ July 2016

supporters there simply to offer cheers and support. They stood, getting soaked to the core, for hours on end. Now that’s what I call miserable. But they were cheering and clapping and shouting words of encouragement. And I’ll tell you what, when you’re just not sure if your legs will take you one more step at mile 22, that simple “You’re doing great!” can make a world of difference and cause a sap like me to cry, too. I’ve seen it time and again in the livestock show world, too. Fellow show parents stepping in to help when they see a fellow parent in need. They’re not doing it for the reward. They’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do. And it’s incredible. Seek the advice of experts. Mentors are invaluable, regardless of the scenario. I’ve found in both running and youth livestock shows, they’re more than happy to help someone in need. Throughout the 20 weeks of training for this race, my Team BEEF teammates and many running friends across the country offered invaluable advice on how to make it past “the wall” that hits many marathoners at mile 20. Or, for me, on mile 13.4 of an 18-mile training run. What an ugly day. Our friends in the cattle industry? Absolutely the same — and always there with advice when needed.

4 Run your own race, not the race of the person next to you. One such experienced friend and runner, Regan, reminded me of this wisdom just before my first half marathon two years ago,

Hereford.org


and it’s so true whether it be in running or in the showring. Everyone is on a different journey. Everyone has different goals and experience. Don’t be discouraged by your point in the journey in relation to the person next to you. The only one to compete against? The person you were yesterday. 5 Family supports one another, no matter what. Did I mention how miserable the weather was on race day? But my cousin and her boyfriend were standing at mile 6 to cheer me on. And met me again at mile 22, running alongside and offering encouragement for nearly a mile. And when I entered the University of Illinois Memorial Stadium, which is home to the Illinois Marathon finish

line, I could not have been more overwhelmed to see my husband, kids, mom and cousins smiling and cheering with their handmade, glitter-adorned poster board signs. And after having run for five hours and 29 minutes, they were just the inspiration I needed to power through to the end. That’s just what family does. My hope? That our children feel that same exhilaration and sense of pride when they see their parents and siblings awaiting them as they exit the ring at every show. My excitement for them is completely glittery-sign worthy. And if I could be holding up a handmade sign to cheer on my kids in the ring, I’d absolutely do it.

Yes, I learned far more than breathing techniques and the benefits of energy gels throughout my marathon training. I learned a lot about life, too. Will I take on a full marathon again? Ask me again in a few months. There’s one thing I know for certain. Whether it be running or helping our children achieve their goals in the showring, so many lessons are learned by staying the course. HW

Hereford Registration 4-1-1 Members have the choice of registering as a pedigree or performance breeder. If a registry type wasn’t declared, then you’re automatically enrolled as a pedigree breeder.

Pedigree registry:

Pedigree breeders can register and transfer cattle but do not maintain and report performance data to AHA. Production of expected progeny differences (EPDs) is waived on their herd.

Registry type

Performance registry:

Performance breeders participate in the Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) system and are required to maintain a female inventory, report calving ease and weaning information annually on the produce of every female in the inventory. EPDs are printed on the registration certificate.

To learn more about becoming a performance breeder and the ability to register calves with EPDs, go to Hereford.org/TPR or contact AHA customer service.

Electronic:

The AHA has a real-time online registration system called MyHerd.org. Members may sign up for a free online account and register their calves electronically. Electronic registrations receive a discount and registered information is made available in real time. E-mail your AHA member number to MyHerd@hereford.org to have an account set up or if you have already signed up, log on now at MyHerd.org.

How to pay

Paper:

The AHA has a traditional paper registration application for members who prefer to register by postal mail. A registration application is provided in your new member packet. It’s a two sided form, with part 2 needed for submitting transfer on entry and sireowner signature information. If you don’t have a registration form, call AHA member service to have a form mailed to you or go to the “Forms Library” at Hereford.org to download and print.

annual member service fee of $100 ($20 for junior members) in order to register an animal during the current fiscal year. The fiscal year is Sept. 1 through Aug. 31. Each paid adult member service fee generates a one-year subscription to the Hereford World magazine.

Traditional paper recording members can mail a check with their registration application(s) or call the AHA member service department and pay with a credit card over the phone.

Note: Registration certificates are mailed after the registration fees are paid in full.

Registration tip: If your herd is comprised of animals from multiple membership accounts (family members, children, partners, etc.), it’s best to link all associated accounts to one master account. Having one master account makes it easier to submit registration and performance data as a herd. Ownership of the animals within each account will not be changed, and there’s no additional charge. Complete the relationship development form to link accounts. The form can be found at Hereford.org in the “Forms Library.”

4 / 2016 Hereford Handbook

The basic concept of beef cattle performance records is to measure genetic differences between animals for traits of economic importance. The American Hereford Association (AHA) recognizes the importance of performance records in today’s beef industry and through Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) can provide a system flexible enough to meet the needs of the most sophisticated record-keeping breeder or those who desire to keep only the basics. Within herd and contemporary group records generated through Whole Herd TPR are measures for calving intervals, birth weights, weaning weights, yearling weights, scrotal circumference, hip height/frame measures and ratios for most of these measures. Good within-herd records include information obtained at birth, weaning, yearling and ultrasound carcass data as well. These within-herd and contemporary-group records are adjusted for known environmental sources of variation in animal performance such as age of dam, age of calf, etc. Today’s commercial cattleman has available to him the germ plasm from multiple beef breeds and numerous breeders and animals within each of the breeds from which to select his herd replacements. Competition for the commercial industry purchasing power between and within breeds is keen, and those breeders who can document their seedstock’s performance for the commercial man’s investment have a distinct advantage in today’s beef industry as it moves toward “specification production” from conception to slaughter. Whole Herd TPR is a system of registration and performance tracking whereby every participating breeder updates his/her cow herd inventory annually and is charged for performance data on a per cow basis as opposed to a per calf basis. The system is positively endorsed by the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF), a North American umbrella organization of beef breed associations, beef producers, researchers and the academic community. With this system, the AHA measures economically relevant beef production traits such as fertility, longevity and reproductive efficiency. Furthermore, the greater

volume of data reported from each herd for measured growth and carcass traits enhances the accuracy of Hereford expected progeny differences (EPDs). Participation in Whole Herd TPR is voluntary and breeders may choose to maintain pedigree records without recording performance information. With this option, known as pedigree registry, breeders do not have EPDs or other performance information printed on their registry certificates. Call the AHA to get your herd enrolled in the performance registry program or if you are currently enrolled and have questions. The AHA staff will walk you through the process and show you how easy and rewarding it can be.

Whole Herd TPR steps: Step 1:

• Show an accurate inventory record of each female in your herd that is expected to calve in your selected season. • AHA invoices the breeder for his inventory costs in accordance with the number and kind of animals reported. • Following data submission, AHA provides a Dam Production Summary Report for each enrolled female. • AHA returns Birth Information Worksheets (Form 1)

Step 2:

• As calving is completed, breeders are required to return to AHA a Birth Information Worksheet (Form 1) with the birth information for every female enrolled in that season, including data on any that failed to calve, lost a calf, etc. • AHA returns Birth Report/ Weaning Worksheet (Form 2)

Step 3:

• Member submits completed Birth Report/Weaning Worksheet (Form 2) reporting weaning weight information or a disposal code for animals not weighed. • AHA returns to the breeder the Weaning Report/Yearling Worksheet (Form 3) when all inventoried females have been reported. • Note: Yearling information is not mandatory.


Step 4:

• When the breeder returns Form 3 to AHA, a yearling worksheet is provided and the breeder reports yearling weights on those still in his possession and codes the balance as disposed of. • If ultrasound carcass data is collected, technician submits carcass data directly to an AHA-approved ultrasound lab that will process the data and forward results to AHA for database inclusion. • As an alternative, breeders can choose to return the form with no yearling information and request the Calf EPD Summary (Form 5), thereby completing the reporting requirements on that calf crop.

Gold Whole Herd TPR™ Breeders

The Gold TPR Breeder recognition is presented to progressive Hereford breeders who have measured traits and collected and promptly submitted performance data at all levels of production. Breeders must meet a specific set of requirements in order to be eligible for the program. • Herd inventory submitted prior to inventory surcharge deadline. • Complete reporting of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on inventory. • Complete reporting of birth, weaning and yearling weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight. • Ultrasound data reported on 25% or more of the calf crop.

New online registry — MyHerd.org

The AHA online registration system is called MyHerd.org and it allows you to update your herd inventory, record and register calves, submit weaning and yearling data, transfer animals to your customers, and pay your AHA bill online; the system provides 24/7 access to the majority of record services. The online system has several advantages. First, the system works in real time, which means registration and performance data are available upon valid entry, no additional processing by AHA is needed. You will not have to wait for traditional mail service to deliver your registration information or to receive reports of updated calf crop performance from the AHA. Registration numbers and performance

reports are available online at MyHerd.org immediately following data submission. MyHerd will help keep you organized with custom performance to-do lists, which tell you exactly what needs to be turned in. E-mail your member number to MyHerd@hereford.org to sign up for a free account.

Electronic storage

The AHA offers electronic storage of registration certificates to members using the online registry system, MyHerd.org. When a member registers an animal, the certificate is stored electronically at MyHerd.org until the member wants to release the certificate for print. The electronic storage service allows members to be in control of when they receive registration certificates. Members can store a calf crop electronically and wait to release the certificates until after all performance data are recorded or after a genetic evaluation. There is no additional charge to store or release registration certificates.

New EPDs

Carcass Weight (CW) — Carcass weight is a beneficial trait when considering the impact that pounds have relative to end product value. At the same age-constant endpoint, sires with higher values for carcass weight will add more pounds of hot carcass weight compared to sires with lower values for carcass weight. For example, if sire A has a CW EPD of 84 and sire B has a CW EPD 64, then you would expect the progeny of sire A, if harvested at the same age-constant endpoint, to have a 20-lb. advantage in terms of hot carcass weight. Mature Cow Weight (MCW) — The MCW EPD was designed to help breeders select sires that will either increase or decrease mature size of cows in the herd. The trait was developed after years of cow weight data collection, and the EPD relates directly to the maintenance requirements of a cow herd. Udder suspension (UDDR) — UDDR EPDs are reported on the scoring scale. Scores range from 9 (very tight) to 1 (very pendulous) and represent assessments of udder support. Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters’ udder characteristics when managed in the same environment. Teat size (TEAT) — TEAT EPDs are reported on the scoring scale. Scores range from 9 (very small) to 1 (very

large, balloon-shaped) and are subjective assessments of the teat length and circumference. Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters’ udder characteristics when managed in the same environment.

More frequent genetic evaluations

Many breeders are now taking advantage of genomics to build proof on young or unproven sires because of the increased accuracy of evaluated traits. So it made sense to the AHA in the spring of 2016 to progress to a new genetic evaluation schedule. The genetic evaluation is now run 10 times a year, and the EPD Trends & Distributions Report is updated with each run. However, the compliancy rules for Whole Herd TPR and compliance checks for different recognition programs are still on the same time schedule. With the addition of more frequent evaluations, this information allows breeders to make the best and most informed decisions throughout the spring and fall breeding seasons. Breeders need to have data turned in to the AHA by the 15th of the month prior to the month that it will be released to be included in the genetic evaluation. Go to Hereford.org/TPR to view the complete genetic evaluation schedule.

Looking ahead

As we move forward with more frequent runs, the AHA will also be looking at a new genetic evaluation program called BOLT, developed by Dorian Garrick, Iowa State University Lush Chair in animal breeding and genetics and NBCEC executive director, and Bruce Golden, California Polytechnic State University department head and professor of dairy science. Later this summer, the AHA will be conducting simultaneous runs to help test the new system and to make comparisons with the current one. Essentially, BOLT will be able to conduct a single-step approach to genomic evaluation and combine with pedigree information and phenotypes. This method will significantly reduce the time needed for an analysis and allow for runs to be conducted twice a month or potentially once a week. Once the AHA has fully implemented BOLT, the genetic evaluation schedule will be updated to include even more runs. Keep reading Hereford eNews and checking Hereford.org for updates on BOLT advancements. 2016 Hereford Handbook / 5

Recognized as the world’s premier foundation for creating growth and development opportunities for youth in the cattle industry.

What is HYFA?

The Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) was established in 1986 as a notfor-profit organization to provide support to Hereford youth through scholarship and educational purposes. In 2009 a research foundation committee was established to support Hereford research.

The focus

Since the beginning, the focus of the HYFA has primarily been geared toward supporting youth. Juniors can participate in a wide variety of contests and activities that are supported by the HYFA. Hereford youth have the opportunity to gain invaluable leadership skills that will enable them to become self-directing, educated leaders in today’s world. Each year the HYFA awards close to $60,000 in scholarships to deserving Hereford youth.

Growing a Lasting Legacy

In November 2013, HYFA kicked off the $1 Million Growing a Lasting Legacy Campaign to ensure the sustainability of future Junior National Hereford Expos (JNHEs) and leadership events for generations to come. Thanks to the many supporters of the Growing a Lasting Legacy event in Kansas City, Mo., along with Jim and Sue Rowland’s inaugural gift and overages from past JNHEs, HYFA is half way to the million dollar goal.

Join the Hereford Foundation Club

HYFA supporters have the best seats in the house at the JNHE. Hereford enthusiasts can join the Hereford Foundation Club and have access to the “Club Level”

that overlooks the showring and other membership perks throughout the event. Friend of HYFA, Ranch Partner, Corporate Partners, Premier Partners and Lifetime Memberships are sold to the Foundation Club and all proceeds support the Growing a Lasting Legacy Campaign.

Scholarships benefit Hereford youth

More than $60,000 in scholarship money was given to deserving National Junior Hereford Association members in 2015. These scholarships are presented each fall in conjunction with the American Hereford Association Annual Meeting and each summer during the JNHE. The application deadlines are April 1 and Sept. 15.

Mission statement

The National Junior Hereford Association’s (NJHA) mission is to create and promote enthusiasm for the Hereford breed while providing opportunities through leadership, education and teamwork, thus ensuring a brighter future for youth and the cattle industry. The NJHA is one of the largest, strongest and most active junior programs in the country. The NJHA, through its extensive leadership programs, continues to lay the foundation for the beef industry’s future leaders It is fun to watch as members of this association graduate from the junior ranks and go on to be leaders, not only in the Hereford breed, but in the entire agriculture industry. It is so rewarding to see past junior directors leading the American Hereford Association (AHA) board and using some of the skills and networks they gained from serving on the junior board to help them be the best adult leaders they can be. NJHA membership is on the rise, and in 2015, 2,902 active members took advantage of all the opportunities available to Hereford youth through the association. This number is up more than 29% since 2010. Do you want to be a member of the NJHA? If you are under the age of 22 and love Hereford cattle, you can join. Just simply fill out the form found on the website, JrHereford.org, and mail it back to the NJHA office. Then you’re on your way to being a member of one of the

largest junior beef breed organizations in the world.

Junior National Hereford Expo

One of the largest junior beef breed shows in the U.S., the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), is a highlight of the NJHA’s summer activities. It is held every July and is co-sponsored by the AHA, the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA), and affiliated state Hereford associations. Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, this summer spectacular provides an opportunity for competition between junior members and their cattle projects. A hands-on type of program for youth provides educational, leadership and motivational forums. During the event, youth can participate in more than 20 skill-based contests. In 2014 and 2015, the JNHE was voted the Best Junior National by the distinguished Best of the Barns awards. Mark your calendars — the 2017 JNHE will be in Louisville, Ky., July 15-21 and will be themed “Showin’ for the Roses.”


NJHA Important Dates and Deadlines 2016 PRIDE Convention

Faces of Leadership

It’s not all about showing Herefords. While the JNHE promotes learning aspects of showing cattle and educational activities associated with relative contests, the NJHA’s annual PRIDE Faces of Leadership Convention focuses on leadership development. Junior members from all parts of the country participate in the event each year. During the three-day event, more than 100 participants listen to nationally known speakers and participate in junior board workshops, which assist in the enhancement of the individual’s leadership talents, communication skills and beef-industry knowledge. Faces of Leadership is typically held at land grant universities; however, in 2008 the event traveled to Washington D.C., and participants got to experience our Nation’s capital. In the past few years, we have been to Idaho, Michigan State University, Arkansas, South Dakota State University and Estes Park, Colo. From the amazing ranch tours to up close looks at the industry at Tyson Foods and Trans Ova Genetics and the latest research being conducted at the various universities, Faces of Leadership participants truly are experiencing all facets of the industry during this tremendous networking opportunity. The NJHA is excited to travel to Amarillo and visit a unique part of Texas and New Mexico for our 2016 leadership event, Aug. 6-9. A stop at the Palo Duro Canyon, ranch tours and an up close look at cattle feeding country are just a few of the highlights in 2016. This conference is offered to junior members ages 14-21. Intermediate and senior members will benefit the most from this leadership conference, and due to some of the activities planned for the event in 2016, junior members must meet the 14 year old age requirement to register for Faces of Leadership.

future in the agriculture industry, the NJHA offers various scholarships and awards to its membership. HYFA administers these scholarships to deserving Hereford youth. In 2015 close to $60,000 was awarded to NJHA members, and in 2016 the scholarships will more than double with opportunities for $1,250-$10,000 individual scholarships. For more information, visit JrHereford.org. Fall scholarship deadline is Sept. 15. Spring scholarship deadline is April 1.

Get involved, run for a director position

Twelve outstanding Hereford juniors serve each year on the NJHA board of directors. Every year, four board members are elected to three-year terms at the annual membership meeting, which is held in conjunction

with the JNHE. During their term, directors develop and implement programs and events that serve junior Hereford members across the nation. Traveling on behalf of the NJHA to various activities enables them to meet fellow members and to share their thoughts and experiences of Hereford involvement. They also get first-hand experience at leadership, cooperation and organization. The NJHA board also makes recommendations for new programs and presents ideas to the AHA Board of Directors, they help train other juniors and they promote the Hereford breed at various activities and events throughout the year. NJHA board applications are due May 1 each year, and all of the guidelines, bylaws and requirements may be found at JrHereford.org.

2016 Hereford Handbook / 13


Hereford Show Information AHA Show Rules • Cattle entered must be registered in the Herd Book of the American Hereford Association (AHA). Entries with registrations “pending” or illegible tattoos, or improper tattoos as shown on the registration certificate at check-in time are ineligible for competition. Exhibitors are subject to the Association’s special rule on class qualification. Entries in these classes are accepted with the understanding that the exhibitor agrees to abide by the rule in all respects. • The exhibition of cattle displaying false hair will not be allowed. • Any product administered internally or used externally to alter the conformation of an animal for exhibition is prohibited. This includes the use of graphite, hemp or other similar substances externally and steroids or growth stimulants internally. • The act of artificially filling animals internally, which includes stomach pumping, drench tubes or any other method by mouth or esophagus is prohibited. • All animals shown in group classes must have been shown in their respective single age class. No transfer from one (1) breed to another, after entry, will be permitted. • Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) values will be provided to the judge and audience for all animals shown. Animals without EPD data are eligible to show, but will have N/A (not available) in place of missing data. • It is recommended by the AHA Show Committee that classes with 10 or more head be considered to be split, depending on animals’ birthdates in each particular class. • Any animal without a legible tattoo will not be eligible to show.

• All Hereford animals must be officially recorded (registered) thirty (30) days prior to show date to be eligible to show at a National Hereford Show. • An animal that is scurred (Scurs are small, rudimentary horns that are loosely attached to the head, which are considered to be expressed only in animals that are genetically heterozygous for the polled gene) will show in the polled division of Hereford shows. Once an animal is confirmed to be scurred by an AHA field representative, then this designation will be placed on the animal’s registration papers. Once this determination has been made and reported to the AHA office, then the owner may remove the scurs. Animals with scurs removed will show in the polled division of Hereford shows. Once an animal is confirmed polled or scurred they will retain this designation forever. • The individual classes will be made up and divided after the cattle are checked in at the show. They will be judged from the youngest class to the oldest within each class. • Calves on the side of cow-calf pairs MUST BE the cow’s natural calf. • For cattle exhibited at the 2017 National Western Stock Show › Exhibitors with bulls born before Dec. 31, 2015, are required to provide a licensed veterinarian’s statement indicating the bull has been semen checked and evaluated as fertile. Semen evaluation is to occur within 90 days of the show. This statement must be presented at check-in during the National Western Stock Show. › Exhibitors with females in the spring and junior yearling divisions must be confirmed pregnant within 45 days of show by a licensed veterinarian or by blood test or show with a calf at side.

AHA Rules and Regulations SECTION I: MEMBERSHIP A. Membership Types

1. Life membership 2. Annual (recording) membership 3. Junior membership 4. Non-resident membership

B. Life membership

Life memberships that were purchased in the past will continue to be recognized by the Association. Life members only pay member service fees and do not pay dues. Life members may attend all meetings of the Association. They have voting rights at all official membership meetings as long as they are active members (have registered at least one animal in the previous calendar year). Life members receive member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle. Lifetime memberships can be transferred to immediate family members; however, the membership name must remain the same.

C. Annual (recording) membership

Recording memberships are annual memberships issued by the Association in the name of an individual, farm or ranch, partnerships or corporation. To remain active, the recording member must pay annual dues on the anniversary date of their joining as a recording member. Recording members may attend all meetings of the Association. They have voting rights at all official membership meetings as long as they are active members (have registered at least one animal in the previous calendar year). Recording members receive member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle.

D. Junior membership

Junior membership in the Association is available to anyone under 22 years of age. The fee for junior membership is $15, assessed annually on September 1. The junior membership is available until the holder reaches his or her 22nd birthday. At that time, he/she may acquire an adult (life or recording) membership. Junior members have all of the privileges of recording members (except voting) including member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle, as well as participating in junior activities and scholarships.

E. Non-resident membership

Non-resident members are non-voting members residing in another country that wish to take advantage of member services including registry, total performance recording, selling of semen to members, and transfer of ownership of animals to other members. Non-resident members are subject to the same rules and fees as U.S. resident members.

F. Annual member service fee

Lifetime, recording and junior memberships require an annual member service fee of $100 ($20 for junior members) in order to register an animal during the current fiscal year. The fiscal year is September 1 through August 31. Each paid member service fee will generate a one-year subscription to the Hereford World magazine (except in the case of a junior membership). This fee is used to offset the costs of several under-funded services offered active registry accounts.

G. Membership herd designation

The Association has two different tiers or levels that members can participate in when registering and transferring Hereford cattle. The mechanisms for billing of services and services available are different between each of the tiers; therefore, each

membership account must be designated as to which tier or level the member’s herd will participate in. Each membership can have only one participation level designation. The two tiers and a brief description of each are as follows: Pedigree registry: This participation level is designed for breeders who wish to register and transfer purebred Hereford cattle but are not interested in maintaining and reporting performance data to AHA. Pedigree registry breeders can submit registry and transfer applications on a per head fee basis established by the Board of Directors. Pedigree breeders choose to waive performance recording on their animals and, therefore, waive the production of EPDs on their herd. Performance registry: This participation level is structured and oriented to simplify the billing and reporting of performance testing herds. Registry and transfer fees are assessed at the same rate as for pedigree breeders. Performance registry breeders are also required to maintain an accurate and up-to-date female inventory, listing all females currently in their breeding herd with AHA. Performance registry breeders are required to annually report calving ease and weaning weight information on the produce of every female in the inventory. Additional measures including birth and yearling weights, as well as carcass traits, can be reported but are not required. EPDs will be printed on the certificate. EPDs will only be reported on registered animals. Nonregistered animals or genetic material will not be provided EPDs.

SECTION II: AHA RECORDS, RULES AND POLICY

Application for registration of your calves is a part of the record keeping requirement of Hereford cattle. Extra careful attention to detail in submitting applications for registration will save time for you and your Association. Be sure all information is supplied and that information is accurate and legible. Applying for registry of your calves when they are still young (four months or younger) is important, SINCE IT REDUCES THE RISK OF ERROR AND SAVES YOU BOTH TIME AND MONEY. There is one basic form used by the Association for registration application. Breeders participating at the pedigree registry level should disregard the fields of information used to submit birth performance data. Reports generated from the processing of registration applications will be appropriate for the breeder’s level of participation.

Tattooing calves:

Tattoos are a requirement for registry in the American Hereford Record. Hereford breeders were the first to adopt the ear tattoo as a requirement for registry. A tattoo outfit consists of a pair of specially designed pliers with rows of digits numbered 0 to 9 and a bottle of India ink. Such equipment may be purchased from most livestock supply stores. Select the desired number by rotating the digits in the ear marker. Before punching the animal’s ear, assure yourself that everything is in order by punching a piece of cardboard. Next, restrain the calf’s head so as to prevent violent movement while applying the tattoo. Select a spot in the center of the ear and clean thoroughly with a cloth and rubbing alcohol. Avoid placing the tattoo over one of the ribs of the ear but rather place the tattoo between the ribs of the ear. Place the ear between the jaws of the pliers with the numbers or letters on the inside of the ear. Close the pliers quickly and firmly and then release. Use a finger or toothbrush to smear ink over the punctures made by the tattoo and rub thoroughly until ink is worked into each of the holes. Make a written record of the marks placed in the ear. It is strongly advised that breeders place 2016 Hereford Handbook / 25


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

the tattoo in both ears to enhance the chances that a complete tattoo identity can be established.

Herd Book of the American Hereford Association

Rule 1. OFFICIAL RECORD: The official record of the Association shall be the American Hereford Record. Such record shall be maintained in the AHA office. Rule 2. HERD BOOK: Entries in the American Hereford Record shall contain the registration number, name, sex, tattoo, date of birth, name and registry number of the sire and dam and the name of the breeder.

SECTION III: REGISTRATIONS

Rule 1. PRIVILEGES OF REGISTRATION: Applications for entry will only be accepted from members. Non-members must become members in order to register an animal. Rule 2. ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for entry in the American Hereford Record, an animal must be the offspring of registered parents, both of which have been previously recorded in the American Hereford Record. Both horned and polled Herefords are eligible for entry into the record. Herefords registered in other associations (members of the World Hereford Council) can be entered in the American Hereford Record, thereby making their offspring eligible for registration. Rule 3. APPLICATION FOR ENTRY: Application for entry should be made on the official application form (FORM 1) or through an official AHA approved electronic software system. Rule 4. AGE OF SIRE: There is no minimum or maximum age specified for a Hereford sire or his progeny to be eligible for entry. However, applications indicating the sire was less than nine months of age at time of service will be questioned for accuracy. Rule 5. AGE OF DAM: There is no minimum or maximum age specified for a Hereford dam or her progeny to be eligible for entry. However, applications indicating that the dam was less than nine months of age time of conception will be questioned for accuracy. Rule 6. 283-DAY RULE: A calf born less than 283 days after the birth of its dam’s previous calf will be questioned. The breeder must then provide an explanation for the early delivery and a ruling will be made as to whether the entry will be allowed. Rule 7. 21-DAY RULE: Females exposed to one bull must not be exposed to another bull in less than 21 days after such exposure. Avoiding double or multiple exposures will help provide positive identification of the service sire. Exposure to a second bull in less than 21 days might mean the correct service sire cannot be positively identified, requiring DNA typing of both sires, the dam and the calf. Rule 8. DNA TYPING: • All Hereford bulls born after Jan. 1, 2011, are required to be DNA typed at the official AHA DNA laboratory before their progeny can be registered. • Whenever the eligibility for registration of any animal is in doubt because of uncertain or unknown parentage, DNA typing by the Association shall be required. Rule 9. MULTIPLE BIRTH: Twins or other multiple birth calves are eligible for registration. The application for registry, however, should specify such at birth.

26 / 2016 Hereford Handbook

Rule 10. TATTOO: Calves must be tattooed before application for registry is made. Each breeder may devise his own plan or system of tattoo identification using either numbers or letters or a combination of both. Any marks other than numbers or letters, however, are not permitted — meaning brand marks, symbols, etc. cannot be used. Duplication of tattoos within your herd is strongly discouraged as tattoos are frequently used by breeders as a primary form of identification. Duplication can lead to much confusion for breeder and the Association office alike. The tattoo in one ear shall be limited to a maximum of eight characters. If the tattoo should become illegible, the same marking shall be placed in a different area of the ear. No attempt shall be made to alter or over-imprint the old tattoo. The Association must be notified when an animal is re-tattooed. Rule 11. NAMING HEREFORDS: It is the responsibility of the owner to select names for his cattle. The name must not be more than 30 spaces long, counting spaces between words. For example, PRINCE DOMINO ADVANCE JUNO 133 is exactly 30 spaces long. Brands, symbols and commas cannot be used. Avoid duplicating names as no two Herefords should be named the same. It is the breeder’s responsibility to avoid using names and prefixes that are being used by other breeders. Names should be appropriate for the gender of the animal, and it is recommended that names reflect the line of breeding where possible. Embryo transfer calves will carry the designation embryo transfer (ET) at the end of their name, accounting for three spaces. The Association reserves the right to change the name assigned to an animal on an application for registry if the name submitted is deemed to be inappropriate. Rule 12. CHANGING NAMES: The name of a Hereford may be changed, provided the animal has no registered offspring. The name may be changed only once in the lifetime of an animal. All owners must agree to the name change in the case of a partnership owned animal. Letters must be submitted from the first and all current owners requesting the change of name along with the certificate and required fee. Rule 13. JOINT OWNERSHIP (BREEDING INTEREST): No application for registration or transfer of an animal which shows more than four owners shall be accepted for entry in the American Hereford Record. Rule 14. DUPLICATE CERTIFICATES: If original certificates are lost or destroyed, the owner may secure duplicates from the Association by providing the sex, registry number and tattoo of each animal. If the registry number is not available, the registration number of the dam, name of the person who registered the animal, and the sex, age and tattoo of the animal in question must be provided. The fee for duplicate certificates for member and nonmembers is available from the AHA Records Department. Rule 15. CORRECTION OF CERTIFICATES: It is recognized that occasionally errors are committed in registering cattle, and these should be corrected. If an error is discovered, it should be reported to the Association immediately and the incorrect certificate returned with a letter of explanation. Corrections are made without charge if done within six months of the issue date or if the Association made the error. The fee for making corrections after the six-month period is available from the AHA Records Department. Rule 16. ARTIFICIAL SERVICE: Calves may be registered that were produced through artificial insemination (AI) provided they comply with the rules governing AI as discussed in SECTION V: ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION.


Rule 17. ELIGIBILITY FOR EMBRYO TRANSPLANT CALVES: Registration of offspring resulting from Embryo Transplant (ET) shall be made on an Application for Registration (Form 1). Certificates issued shall be designated by ET following the name of the calf. The name must be no longer than 30 characters long including the ET designation. Registry of offspring resulting from ET may be implemented only after the following steps have been taken: • DNA profile of sire and donor dam must be recorded with the Association. DNA profile kits are available from the Association. The names and registry numbers of the animals to be tissue sampled must be supplied. • Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service must accompany the application for each calf when the sire is not in the same recorded ownership as the donor dam. Rule 17A. NEW EMBRYO TRANSFER POLICY: For ET calves there will no longer be an ET certificate required for registration. The new requirement for registering an ET calf will be the reporting of the recovery date of the embryo at the time of registry. ET calves will be charged an additional $10 per head over and above the normal registry rate. Rule 18. LEASING HEREFORDS: Herefords may be leased, provided a statement of lease is on file with the Association. If a lease statement is on file listing each animal being leased by name and registration number, the lessee can register calves sired by the bulls or produced by the cows as if he were the actual owner, provided there are no more than three owners already listed. At the end of the lease period, unless extended, registration privileges revert back to the recorded owner. In order to make this process more efficient and less confusing, the Association will adopt the following policies regarding leasing Hereford cattle. • The required information needed by the Association for leasing animals will be communicated using one consistent and common lease form to be used by all members wishing to participate in this type of practice. The lease form will contain only the required information for the Association’s needs and is to be used expressly for that intent. The lease form should not be construed as a binding agreement between the lessor and lessee. The Association shall in no way be involved in or assume liability for the lease, terms of the lease of registered Herefords, or the passage of legal rights thereto. • All lease periods must include a beginning and ending date; no open-ended leases will be accepted. • All animals involved in the lease shall be included on the lease form(s) by their registration number and name. • The lease form must be submitted by the lessor with his/ her signature. • Should the lessor and lessee agree to extend the lease, documented notification will be required in the Association’s office should the birth dates of any calves being registered out of sire or dams involved in the lease not coincide with the time period of the lease. • If the lessor or lessee wishes to lease additional or different animals, then an additional lease form(s) should be completed with all required information and submitted by the lessor. Rule 19. IMPORTED HEREFORDS: Herefords imported from another country must be recorded in the American Hereford Record if their calves are to be registered. Registration of imported cattle must be accomplished within one year from the date of purchase of imported cattle. See

section for the procedures for recording imported cattle or semen interests in bulls from another country. Rule 20. REGISTRATION OF HEREFORDS OVER TWO YEARS OF AGE: Application for registration of an animal received by the Association after two years from the date of birth shall be considered for registration only when accompanied by a written statement from the applicant setting forth the reason application was not submitted within the generally accepted registration period. These applications and required fees must be approved by the Board of Directors. Rule 21. REGISTRATION FOR THE ESTATE OF A DECEASED PERSON: In the event of the death of one who normally would apply for registration of cattle, the Association requires there shall be filed in its office all documents necessary to prove the person requesting registration is legally authorized to do so. Rule 22. REGISTRATION BY AFFIDAVIT: In case of neglect or refusal by the seller to register a calf sold at side of dam, registration may be approved by the Board of Directors on the basis of the facts furnished to substantiate the claim. Each affidavit must be accompanied by proof of a sale and payment in full of the purchase price and evidence of whether the dam’s breeding was natural or artificial. Rule 23. REGISTRATION ACCURACY: Accurately kept private records are essential, and in any case where an application is regarded as questionable, the burden of the proof with regard to same shall belong to the applicant, who must sustain his claims by a preponderance of evidence. Whenever the accuracy of data contained in an application to register an animal is challenged, the matter may be referred to the Board of Directors for investigation. Rule 24. MISREPRESENTATION OR FRAUD: If an animal’s registration has been obtained through misrepresentation or fraud, or if the date of birth, tattoo number, sire, dam or service information or any other fact regarding the animal has been misrepresented, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems necessary.

SECTION IV: TRANSFER OF REGISTRATIONS

Rule 1. RESPONSIBILITY: It is the responsibility of the seller of registered Herefords to execute properly the official transfer of ownership to the buyer. Every change of ownership of an animal used for breeding purposes must be recorded by official transfer on the American Hereford Record. No entry on the face of the certificate of registry shall be made except in the office of the Association and any unauthorized entry shall render a certificate null and void, subject to issuance of a replacement certificate at an additional fee. Rule 2. IDENTIFICATION: It shall be the duty of the seller, before offering a registered Hereford for sale or applying for transfer, to verify that the animal carries legible tattoo marks matching those entered on its certificate. Rule 3. APPLICATION FOR TRANSFER: Application for transfer shall be made either electronically through AHA’s online service or in hard copy form on the reverse side of the registration certificate and signed by the seller or an authorized agent. The application should be legibly completed and must specify name and location of the buyer and date of delivery. For bred females, service information is also required. 2016 Hereford Handbook / 27


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

Rule 4. COWS WITH CALF AT SIDE: When a cow is transferred with a calf at side, the calf must first be registered to the individual, partnership or corporation in whose name the cow was registered on the date of birth of the calf. A separate transfer of the calf is then required to the new owner. This is often referred to as a “transfer on entry.” (See backside of registration application.) Rule 5. CALF TRANSFERRED AT TIME OF REGISTRATION: As described above, a calf must first be registered in the membership name of the dam’s owner at the time of birth. Then a separate transfer to the new owner is required. Rule 6. TRANSFER BY AFFIDAVIT: In the event of neglect or refusal by the seller to apply for transfer of registration, transfer may be recorded if approved by a majority of the Board of Directors on the basis of the facts furnished to substantiate the claim. Each affidavit must be accompanied by proof of sale and payment in full of the purchase price of the animal. Rule 7. TRANSFERS CONSIGNED TO PUBLIC SALE: Sale managers or their representatives may fill in the buyer’s name on the application for transfer of animals consigned to public sales, and if authorized by the consignor, sign such transfers in his stead. Such applications must indicate the name of the sale manager or agent representing the consignor. Applications executed under this rule are subject to Rule 12 of this section. Rule 8. TRANSFER FROM THE ESTATE OF A DECEASED PERSON: In the event of the death of the owner of Hereford cattle, the Association requires that there should be filed in its office, documents showing the person requesting transfer is legally authorized and entitled to request such transfer. Applications executed under this rule are also subject to Rule 13 of this section. Rule 9. TRANSFER OF EXPORTED ANIMALS: Application for transfer of an animal exported to another country shall be made with a regular Transfer Application. Rule 10. RESPONSIBILITY OF LEGAL TITLE: A transfer of registration on the records of the American Hereford Association is not to be construed as the conveyance of legal title by the Association. The Association shall in no way be involved in or assume liability for the purchase, sale or terms of the sale of registered Herefords or the passage of legal title thereto. Rule 11. JOINTLY OWNED ANIMALS: No animal shall be transferred to more than four owners of record at any one time. A “syndicate” or similar type entity consisting of one or more individuals, firms, etc. may be listed as one or more of the four designated owners of record. Rule 12. MISREPRESENTATION OR FRAUD: If an animal’s registration has been transferred through misrepresentation or fraud, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article IX of the Bylaws, including, without limitation, suspension of the animal’s registration and any registrations of descendants of such animal and refusals of the Association to receive subsequent application of any kind from any person implicated in the misrepresentation or fraud. Rule 13. AUTHORIZED SIGNATURE: A certificate of registry does not establish legal ownership of cattle but simply reflects the name in which cattle are registered on the books of the Association. The Association will usually make any requested change or transfer of cattle registration upon the 28 / 2016 Hereford Handbook

presentation, to the Association, of the Registry Certificate covering the cattle and purporting to be signed with the name in which the Registry Certificate is issued. Due to the large number of transfers, it is impractical for the Association to verify signatures or require proof that the person signing the Registry Certificate and requesting change or transfer is in fact authorized to do so. Accordingly, a Registry Certificate should be kept in a safe place to insure against its falling into the hands of an unauthorized person who could then cause change or transfer of registration on the Association’s books and the issuance of a new Registry Certificate. If the Association receives conflicting instructions regarding any change or transfer of registration, the Association will, unless restrained by appropriate court order, honor the request of the person presenting the appropriate Registry Certificate.

SECTION V: ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION

Rule 1. DNA PROFILING: All bulls used in an artificial insemination program must be DNA profiled and a record of their DNA profile must be filed with the Association before calves sired artificially by such bulls shall be eligible for registration or before Non-Owner AI Certificates may be purchased. The official policy of the Association is to use DNA only for parentage verification as of December 2002. Rule 2. AI BULL PERMIT: The breeder using a bull for artificial breeding purposes must have received an AI bull permit issued by the Association. The Association must have on file a DNA profile report for the bull and his parents before the AI bull permit will be issued. Rule 3. DEATH OF BULLS: Calves conceived after the death of a bull shall be eligible for registration under the same conditions and provisions governing the eligibility of calves conceived by AI. The Association may request that calves sired by deceased bulls be parentage verified. Ownership of a deceased bull may be transferred if they are AI permitted. Rule 4. LABELING OF SEMEN: Semen must be properly identified by name and registration number of the bull and the date of collection. Unlabeled or mislabeled semen should not be used to produce calves for registration in the American Hereford Record. It shall be the responsibility of the owner of record or each co-owner of record of a bull used artificially to require each person or organization collecting, processing and freezing semen to identify the semen before freezing. Rule 5. WITHIN HERD USE: No Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service are required to register the resulting offspring when both cow and bull are in the same recorded ownership. When the cow and bull are not in the same recorded ownership, Rule 6 below applies. Rule 6. OUT-OF-HERD CALVES BY NON-OWNED SIRES: All sires used in AI service must be DNA profiled. Bulls that are DNA profiled after January 1, 1986, must also have both parents’ DNA profiles on file with AHA to qualify for Non-Owner AI Certificates. A DNA profile may be obtained by sending the appropriate hair samples to AHA’s official DNA lab for processing. DNA profiles from eligible animals, which originate in the official DNA lab of other Hereford associations, will be accepted for processing by AHA. Those sires for which a parent is not available for DNA profiling may only be used for AI service in the herds of the recorded owners, unless such bulls qualify for analysis to provide a derived type for the dead parent. (Contact AHA for further information on this special ruling.) The following requirements shall apply to register calves conceived artificially when the recorded owner of the female is


not the recorded owner or one of the recorded owners of the sire at the time of conception:

“Breeding Share Agreement,” they can be individually invoiced for AI certificates when calves are registered.

Option A:

Rule 10. SEMEN DONATIONS TO COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES: The Association will make donated AI Certificates of Service available for use by colleges or universities when a breeder makes a donation of semen from a qualified bull. The semen certificates will be issued to the college or university at no cost to the breeder. The following rules must be complied with: • The semen must be a donation to the college or university. • The breeder must apply for the donation certificates in the form of a letter to AHA indicating the institution to which the donation is made. • The bull must qualify under the current rules for NonOwner AI Certificates of Service. • The certificates and semen must be used by the institution that received the donation. Applications for registry from any other party will not be accepted. • Upon approval by the Association, donated AI Certificates of Service will be issued directly to the college or university.

• A bull may enter the Non-Owner AI Sire Program, which allows the owner(s) of a bull to sell semen without the need of an AI certificate for registration of the offspring of the bull. Calves born on or after December 1, 2006, are eligible for registry under this program. • For a bull to be entered into this program, an agreement must be signed by all owners of the bull and kept on file at the AHA. If the bull is owned by a syndicate, the owners listed on the certificate will need to sign the agreement along with the designated representative of the syndicate. • For a bull to be entered into this program, he must have an AI permit issued (see Rule 2). • There is a one-time fee of $250 to enter a bull into this program. Once a bull is entered into the program, he will not be allowed to switch back to the certificate program (Option B).

Option B:

• The breeder (recorded owner of the female at time of conception) must obtain a Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service for each calf to be recorded from the individual or firm supplying the semen and such certificates must accompany the application for registration of the resulting offspring. • The recorded owner of the bull from which the semen was sold is obligated to supply the number of Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service contracted for at the time the semen was purchased. • Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service may be obtained from the Association by active members of the Association who are the recorded owner or co-owners of the bull at a fee established by the Board of Directors. It is the responsibility of the owner of the dam at the time of service to complete the Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service.

Rule 7. LIMITATIONS: The Board may cancel the Non-Owner AI Permit for any bull which has been scientifically documented as being a carrier of a deleterious gene which produces an economically important genetic defect in his calves. Rule 8. LIMITATIONS: The Board may restrict or limit the number of Non-Owner AI Certificates for an individual bull if, in the judgement of the Board and based on scientific information, such bull is being used so excessively as to cause irreparable damage to the breed’s genetic base. Rule 9. NON-OWNER SEMEN CERTIFICATE ALLOCATION FOR MULTI-OWNER SIRES: To obtain AI Certificates from a multi-owned sire, one must be a recorded owner or co-owner of the sire. Certificates will be issued on request to any recorded owner. Contractual agreements regarding certificate privileges among multi-owners are the responsibility of those owners. In the instance where a recorded owner of the sire is a multi-owner group, it is the responsibility of the owner group’s designated spokesman to handle the distribution of non-owner AI semen certificates. Individual members of the multi-owner group, not otherwise recorded as one of the four recorded owners of record of the sire, will be required to secure NonOwner AI Certificates of Service from a recorded owner in order to register offspring of the sire from their recorded dams. The American Hereford Association (AHA) will provide a service whereby an AHA member can participate in a “Breeding Share Agreement” for bulls. When members participate in a

Rule 11. LIABILITY: The issuance of Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service by the Association should in no way be construed as guaranteeing conception or that the resulting calf shall be eligible for registration. There shall be no refunding of fees paid to the Association for these certificates.

SECTION VI: IMPORTING OF REGISTERED HEREFORDS

Rule 1. EXPORT CERTIFICATE: Registration of an animal originally recorded in the Herd Book of a member of the World Hereford Council shall be accepted only if a registry certificate is issued by the recognized registry organization of the country of origin. Rule 2. APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION: Registration may be applied for within one year by the breeder importing an animal originally recorded in the Herd Book of another member of the World Hereford Council and whose name appears as purchaser on the export certificate. The registry fee must accompany the request for registration. Rule 3. REGISTRATION OF CALVES IMPORTED IN DAM: If a cow was bred prior to importation and a record of service does not appear on the export certificate, the owner of the sire on the date of service must certify to the particulars of service through the recognized registry organization of the country of origin. When the imported cow was bred by artificial insemination, there must be on file with the recognized registry organization in the county of origin a blood type or DNA profile of the service sire. When the imported dam was bred artificially by a bull owned by a breeder in the U.S. and where no semen interest is owned by the breeder in the exporting country, a Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service must accompany the application for registry of the resulting progeny. Rule 4. REGISTRATION OF CALVES IMPORTED AT SIDE: Registration of a calf imported at side of its dam shall be accepted only if the calf is also registered in the same recognized registry organization and a registry certificate has been received by the American Hereford Association (AHA). Rule 5. SEMEN INTEREST IN A BULL DOMICILED IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY: To use semen or to sell Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service, the bull must be recorded in the American Hereford Record by a member (either a member 2016 Hereford Handbook / 29


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

residing in the U.S. or non-resident dues paying member) of the American Hereford Association. All DNA profile rules apply. Rule 6. REGISTRATION OF CALVES RESULTING FROM EGGS IMPORTED FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY will require a DNA profile match of the subject animal, the sire and the dam on file with the Association.

SECTION VII: DNA PROFILING

Rule 1. DNA PROFILING: Over a period of years a vast amount of technical information has become available and DNA profiling is now a useful tool for Association members. DNA has been proven to be more accurate than blood type in proving parentage. Applying for the DNA profile of an animal requires a request to AHA for a DNA profile kit for each animal to be tested. The request must include the name and registry number of the animal to be tested. The kit will contain all the necessary instructions for securing a hair sample and the shipping instructions to send the sample to the designated AHA laboratory. Hair is the tissue sample of choice for the DNA profile. When pulling hair, it is best to pull at least 80 hairs from a clean area above the switch. The hair must have a visible follicle attached at the base of the root in order to produce enough DNA for validation. Rule 2. AI SIRES: The rules of the Association require all sires of calves conceived artificially to be DNA profiled before their calves are eligible for registration. It is wise to have all herd bulls hair sampled early in life to make sure that the semen can be used after their death. Rule 3. DNA PARENTAGE VERIFICATION OF AI AND ET BORN CALVES: Starting December 1, 2006, the AHA will parentage verify every 250th calf registered with a service type of artificial insemination (AI) or Embryo Transfer (ET). If a calf is selected for verification under this program, the registration of the calf will be held until the parentage verification is complete. If the calf is from a mating of an AI sire and its dam is not available for sampling, the next calf registered will be selected without interruption of registration. The AHA will assume the DNA lab cost of parentage verification of the calf and DNA profile work on the dam (if required). Rule 4. ALL ANIMALS: A. The Association may require that any animal which has been registered by the Association be subjected to a DNA profile test to verify breed purity and accuracy of the recorded parentage. The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors or the Board of Directors or the Executive Vice President may require that a DNA profile be made, by such agencies as it or he may designate, of any Hereford animal which has been alleged to have been incorrectly recorded or for any animal for which tissue analysis is deemed advisable. It shall be the duty of the owner of record of any animal in question and the owner of record of the purported sire and dam to afford the Association or its representatives reasonable opportunity to secure DNA samples from the animals involved in the investigation. The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors is empowered to determine who shall pay the costs of any investigation, including laboratory fees assessed under the provisions of this rule. B. Prior to the filing of an entry application for any animal with respect to which a DNA profile is not on file with the Association, the Association may require the owner of said 30 / 2016 Hereford Handbook

animal, at the owner’s cost, to provide a DNA sample for such animal to the Association’s designated laboratory and to provide a DNA profile to the Association from the Association’s designated laboratory. At any Hereford competition, the owner of any animal that wins such competition shall, promptly after the announcement that such animal has won such competition, permit the Association to secure a DNA sample from such animal. C. If, at any time, the Association is in possession of two (2) or more DNA profiles allegedly from the same animal that do not match, including the winner in any Hereford competition, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee may require the Executive Vice President to undertake such investigation as the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee deems appropriate, and, upon the conclusion of such investigation, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article XI of the Bylaws, including without limitation the forfeiture of any prizes including any monetary awards or ribbons awarded to such animal at such competition, the suspension of the registration of the animal in question, the suspension of the owner’s membership or the revocation of the owner’s membership. Any such investigation may include requiring any owner to permit the Association to secure another DNA sample from such animal. Rule 5. REFUSAL: If the owner of record shall refuse reasonable opportunity to the Association or its designated agents to secure DNA samples as set forth in Rule 3 of this Section, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article IX of the Bylaws, including without limitation the suspension of the registration of the animal in question. Rule 6. NON-REGISTERED ANIMALS: The Association may collect and maintain DNA profiles on animals other than registered animals. The Association may, from time to time, compare the DNA profiles of registered animals and the DNA profiles of animals with respect to which applications for registration have been submitted with the DNA profiles of nonregistered animals. The Association may deny registration to, or revoke the registration of, any animal based on this comparison.

SECTION VIII: RULES REGARDING CLONES

Rule 1. ONLY REPLICATION CELL-CLONED animals shall be eligible for registration. Rule 2. THE CELL DONOR animal must be DNA-marker typed. Rule 3. THE BREEDER of the cell-donor animal must be identified as the breeder of the cell-cloned offspring. Rule 4. THE OWNER OF RECORD of the cell-donor, on the date of biopsy removal, will be identified as the first owner, unless the calf is the result of a pregnant recipient, purchased embryo — fresh or frozen — in which case the purchaser may be identified as the first owner. Rule 5. DNA MARKER typing of the cell-cloned animal, or recipient dams, may be required by the Association. Rule 6. CALVES CONCEIVED AFTER DEATH of celldonor animals shall be eligible for registration under the same conditions and provisions governing the eligibility of calves prior to the death of said animal.


Rule 7. REGISTRATION OF CELL-CLONED transplants shall be made on a special form, provided by the Association, at the regular fee, plus an additional fee as determined by the Board of Directors. Rule 8. REGISTRATION CERTIFICATES issued for cellcloned transplants shall be so designated. The registration number of the anima, which is being cell-cloned shall also be stated on the registration certificate. Rule 9. NOTHING SET FORTH herein should be construed as an indication that the Association takes any position as to the ownership rights, if any, of retained cell material. That is a separate matter reserved for discussion and/or negotiation between the buyer and seller. Rule 10. INITIAL BREEDING VALUES – EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCES (EPDs) generated from National Cattle Evaluation for a cloned animal shall be the same values as the cell-donor animal. All data of future progeny from a cloned animal will be pooled with the cell-donor progeny data for genetic evaluation.

SECTION IX: GENETIC DEFECT POLICY

Procedures for collecting abnormality data and reporting the information to the AHA membership: Physical and functional abnormalities are present in all breeds of cattle. In order to monitor abnormalities in Hereford cattle, the American Hereford Association requests the collection of abnormality information from AHA members on a voluntary basis. Specialist, Dr. David Steffen, veterinarian for the University of Nebraska Veterinary and Biomedical Science Department, has worked closely with many breeds in the area of genetic abnormalities. The AHA will be working with him to diagnose abnormalities as being genetic or non-genetic in origin. Not all abnormalities are genetic in origin. Some defects can be attributed to sickness or nutrition. Dr. Steffen works to determine the root cause of the defect. All AHA members are invited to read the procedures for reporting genetic abnormalities. A. Reporting Physical Abnormalities to AHA Any AHA member who becomes aware of a possible physical or functional abnormality in an AHA-registered animal shall immediately notify the AHA Director of Breed Improvement at 816-842-3757. Upon receiving notification of a possible physical functional abnormality, the AHA Records Department will take the following steps to confirm the abnormality and determine if it is genetic in origin: • Provide the member with an abnormality report form, which the member shall promptly complete and return to the AHA: • Provide the member with instructions for collecting and submitting for analysis as deemed appropriate blood and tissue samples from the animal in question. The reporting member shall promptly comply with all AHA instructions regarding the gathering and submission of tissue and blood samples. B. AHA Genetic Consultant The AHA will refer confirmed physical abnormalities to a genetic consultant for analysis. The genetic consultant shall be chosen by the AHA Board. Currently the genetic consultant is David Steffen, DVM PhD, from the University of Nebraska. The AHA genetic consultant is responsible for

determining if sufficient evidence exists to establish a definite cause of a particular physical abnormality. All AHA members shall cooperate fully in any investigation necessary to such determination. The genetic consultant will advise the Board of diagnostic criteria for established genetic diseases and will evaluate evidence to determine if diagnostic criteria are met. Dr. Steffen will perform these evaluations as a pathologist for the Nebraska University Diagnostic Center. C. Notification to Owners of Affected Animals and Owners of Parents of Affected Animals Once a physical abnormality has been confirmed and parentage has been verified, all owners of record of the abnormal animal and owners of record of the parents of the abnormal animal will receive the following information from the AHA: • A description of the physical abnormality in question. • The recorded sire and dam of the abnormal animal. • Whether as a preliminary matter the abnormality appears to be genetic in origin. • If the abnormality appears to be genetic, what steps are planned to determine whether the parents of the abnormal animal are carriers of the physical abnormality. D. Notification to AHA Membership Upon confirmation that an AHA-registered animal has produced a sufficient number of abnormal progeny (at least two confirmed, parent-identified cases or a single positive DNA test — see Section E), the AHA will immediately notify by certified mail the owners of record of the confirmed carrier of the AHA’s intent to designate their animal as a confirmed carrier of a genetic defect. Such designation will become final 30 days after mailing of the certified letters. Any AHA member who may be aggrieved by the AHA’s proposed designation of a particular animal as a confirmed carrier of a genetic defect may file a complaint with the AHA Executive Committee at any time prior to the time the designation becomes final. The filing of such a complaint will stay the confirmed carrier designation until the completion of the Executive Committee proceedings and, if necessary, any further proceedings before an arbitrator or the AHA Board. A finding of no probable cause by the Executive Committee shall operate to make the confirmed carrier designation final. An animal that has been designated as a confirmed carrier of a genetic abnormality shall be placed on a confirmed carrier list, which will be printed as scheduled in the Hereford World and which will be available upon request. Animals born before Jan. 1, 1975, will not be included in the list. If an animal is determined to be a confirmed carrier of a specific genetic abnormality, the AHA shall add a special code to the animal’s registration to indicate this fact. The AHA will not give notice of confirmed or suspected genetic abnormalities to any AHA member or to any owners of related AHA-registered animals except as specifically set out in these rules. Any other notification is the sole responsibility of the owner(s) of the confirmed or suspected carrier parent. E. DNA Genetic Abnormality Testing In the case the AHA identifies a gene marker test for a genetic abnormality, animals may be tested to determine carrier status by an AHA approved laboratory. If breeders wish to officially confirm an animal free of a genetic abnormality and designate it as such on the animal’s pedigree, then the following guidelines must be met: • The breeder must request the DNA test kit from the AHA Records Department. • The results of the test must be returned directly to AHA from the official lab. 2016 Hereford Handbook / 31


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

F. Classification of Genetic Abnormalities The AHA currently recognizes the following physical abnormalities that have been confirmed by its genetic consultant to be genetic in origin under certain circumstances: • CLASS I (LETHAL) Snorter Dwarfism Maple Syrup Urine Disease (Neuraxial Edema) Internal Hydrocephalus Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE) • CLASS II (NON-LETHAL) Hypotrichosis Dermoid Alopecia/Dyserythropoiesis Color Dilutor G. Description of Defects • CLASS I (LETHAL) Snorter Dwarfism – Symptoms: Undersized, short-legged, short-bodied animal, usually potbellied with noisy breathing. Several different types include a broad-headed, bulging forehead and a longand mature-headed kind. X-ray of 10-day-old dwarfs may show abnormal lumbar vertebrae. Most cases are simple autosomal recessive; some forms are incomplete dominance. – Confirmation: Pathologic exam Maple Syrup Urine Disease (Neuraxial Edema) – Symptoms: Calves will be of normal size at birth. May not be able to get up or lift head. A sudden touch or loud noise may cause a vigorous extension of the legs and neck. Contraction (muscle spasms) may last one or two minutes and can be made to reappear. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Histopath of nervous tissue or biochemical test Internal Hydrocephalus (water head) – Symptoms: Excess fluid is present in the brain which may result in a bulging forehead. Calves are usually born dead or die shortly after birth. Some cases may be environmental. Needs careful diagnosis. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Gross pathologic exam Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE) – Symptoms: Age of onset (occurrence of the first seizure) can be variable, ranging from birth to several months of age. Occurrence and persistence of seizures may be influenced by environmental stressors such as temperature extremes (e.g., extreme cold during calving) or increased physical activity (e.g., processing at vaccination or weaning). Upon initial onset of seizure episodes individuals will typically lie on their side with all limbs extended in a rigid state. Manual flexing of the limbs is possible, but return to the extended position occurs after release. Seizure episodes may last from several minutes to more than an hour. Autosomal recessive. – No anatomic abnormalities or histologic lesions detected. – Confirmation: AHA approved expert • CLASS II (NON-LETHAL) Hypotrichosis (hairlessness) – Symptoms: Partial to almost complete lack of hair. Affected calves are often born with very short, fine, kinky hair that may fall out leaving bare spots or areas particularly susceptible to rubbing. The condition may vary in expression as the animal matures and is usually less noticeable in older animals. The haircoat color will sometimes appear “frosted” or “silverish.” Tail switch may be underdeveloped. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Megatrichohyaline granule skin biopsy 32 / 2016 Hereford Handbook

Dermoid (feather eyes) – Symptoms: Skin-like masses of tissue occur on the eye or eyelid. Animals may become partially or completely blind. Polygenic inheritance. – Confirmation: Clinical diagnosis with photos or biopsy Alopecia/Anemia, Dyserythropoiesis – Symptoms: Short, curly hair, hair loss on neck and shoulder. Progressive generalized hair loss. White areas appear dirty and calves are anemic. – Confirmation: Blood test for anemia plus skin biopsy Color Dilutor – Symptoms: Carrier Hereford bulls or females when mated to black cattle can produce offspring with a haircoat that is gray, smokey or chocolate color. – Confirmation: Clinical diagnosis with photos H. Lethal vs. Non-Lethal A lethal genetic abnormality is a genetic abnormality which usually results in death of the animal or production of the animal is significantly impaired causing major economic loss. Non-lethal abnormalities do not cause death, nor do they significantly affect production or commercial profitability. Nonlethals may, however, cause economic loss to seedstock producers. I. Breeding to Avoid Abnormalities Breeders that may have a problem with a simple recessive abnormality can make use of available DNA-based diagnostic tests or implement mating systems designed to reduce the frequency of the abnormal gene in their herds and the breed. Where a DNA-based test is available, breeders can directly test animals for the presence of a specific mutation causing the disease. Animals confirmed to be carriers should be used cautiously, and serious consideration should be given to their removal from the seedstock breeding herd. However, breeders should guard against carelessly throwing away good genetics because a sire or dam is a carrier unless that animal’s good characteristics remain available in the breed from another source. In the absence of a DNA-based test, mating systems should rely on the use of bulls known not to have produced affected calves. Sons of carrier animals can be used if they have been tested free of the abnormality through a series of special test matings. Mating a bull to seven affected females, 17 carrier cows or 35 of his own daughters with no abnormal offspring provides three ways to test for the presence of a recessive gene. With specific regard to non-lethal abnormalities, each breeder must assess the potential economic impact the abnormality may have on his operation. J. Predicted Outcome of Certain Matings Using Hypotrichosis as an Example Hypotrichosis (non-lethal) results from homozygosity of a simple autosomal recessive gene. This means that both parents must possess the hypotrichosis gene in order to produce an affected calf. Approximately 25% of the calves resulting from the mating of two carrier animals will be affected, while 50% will be normal appearing but carriers of hypotrichosis, and the remaining 25% will be normal and non-carriers. Possible matings and the predicted outcomes are shown in the table below: Affected Unaffected Unaffected Normal Matings1 Hypotrichosis Carrier hh × hh hh × Hh hh × HH Hh × Hh Hh × HH HH × HH
