World’s Perspective

All Roads Lead to Rome

by Julie Mais

There are many ways to reach a destination.

Julie Mais is the editor of Hereford World. She can be reached at jmais@hereford.org.

6

| July 2017

The old proverb “All roads lead to Rome” has been on my mind as we’ve been putting together this 94th Annual Herd Bull and Reference Edition. In ancient times across the Roman Empire, smaller roads less traveled would feed into more highly traveled roads which would, in turn, you guessed it, lead to Rome — the bustling hub of European civilization centuries ago. To today’s adopted meaning — there are many paths to one destination, all the methods of doing something will achieve the same result in the end. As you pick up this Hereford World issue, I hope you’ve noticed the publication’s fresh appearance. It’s a humbling experience and an honor not only to coordinate editorial Hereford breeders read each month but, even more so, to take on the task of updating the look. To bring you the updated Hereford World, the entire Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) staff worked together, along with input from HPI committee members, to finalize a design we hope you enjoy. Months of planning and collaborating came to fruition in the 2017 July Hereford World. Just like “All roads lead to Rome,” we could have taken numerous creative roads and come up with a dozen different looks aside from what we presented to you today — the possibilities were endless. However, we always kept in mind the purpose of this publication: to be the voice of the Hereford breed by bringing progressive, profit-minded Hereford breeders and commercial cattlemen timely articles and editorial columns to their doorstep that help them make sound management and marketing decisions. I also hope you notice we did not break down the foundation of this

award-winning publication but, instead, built upon it with fresh colors and a more open approach to design, all while keeping the most important information readers need easy to find.

In this issue In this year’s Herd Bull and Reference Edition, we explore “Herefords Across America.” One of the favorite parts of my job is learning about the road Hereford breeders choose to take to reach their common goal — raising Hereford cattle demanded in the beef industry. We cover how Hereford breeders approach their businesses, challenges and successes in vastly different locations and environments. It’s my pleasure to share with you these unique operations from across the United States beginning on Page 54. Hereford had a strong presence at this year’s Beef Improvement Federation Annual Meeting and Research Symposium in Athens, Ga. The convention focuses on ways product value can be enhanced across all segments through genetic improvement. A summary of the event and key points for Hereford breeders is on Page 114. We are excited to bring you another installment of “Where are they now?,” a series on past National Junior Hereford Association members who are making a difference in the industry. Turn to Page 40 to read how a young high school ag teacher is making a difference in her school and community. And, finally, on Page 48 we say goodbye to longtime American Hereford Association employee Bruce Huxol, who spent 43 years as an artist for the Hereford World before entering retirement on April 1. On behalf of the Hereford World staff, we truly hope you enjoy this issue.

Breed Focus

Robust Reliability

by Jack Ward

Together, pedigree, phenotypes and genomics create more reliable breeding values.

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

The 2017 Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) convention was hosted May 31June 2 by the University of Georgia. It was another great event with a big focus on the value of genomics for breed improvement and the introduction of new genetic evaluation software to include genomics with more accurate pedigree information and phenotypes. The message was clear — all components are important moving forward including pedigree, phenotypes and genomics, and seedstock breeders should be committed to all of these. None are a silver bullet, but together, genetic evaluations will be able to produce breeding values with more reliability and create an opportunity to identify genetics that can make quicker and more accurate generational turns. The American Hereford Association (AHA) is positioned well. Breeders have been committed to genotyping animals, which has allowed us to start with a pedigree from which we can build more accurately. Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) will also play a vital role in the future because it provides unbiased data. We can generate breeding values for the most important economically relevant trait to the industry — fertility. Bruce Golden, Theta Solutions, presented a new concept for cow fertility that AHA will adopt utilizing cow inventories strengthened with genomics.

A new robust genetic evaluation Golden also shared with BIF attendees a new genetic evaluation software, BOLT, that the AHA will adopt. AHA staff along with Theta Solutions and the Agricultural Business Research Institute (ABRI) have been working toward the implementation of this new evaluation over the past few months. This evaluation will be more robust and will allow for both phenotypes and genotypes to be included along with

8

| July 2017

pedigree with a marker effect for each trait. In addition, it will allow for the genomic component to move up and down the pedigree. This evaluation will be fully analyzed before it is fully implemented. Staff have worked side-by-side with the AHA breed improvement committee, Theta Solutions and ABRI to evaluate the results. In addition to the evaluation, the staff have worked with ABRI to develop an infrastructure to automate the front-end data pull and the back-end results. The evaluation creates an opportunity for the AHA to store all genotypes, which will allow us to address pedigree issues quicker. The next step has been to identify an advisory committee to review evaluation results. This advisory committee consists of the breed improvement committee, other AHA breeders and a representative outside the beef industry who has utilized the BOLT software in another protein industry. The final step will be to introduce the evaluation to the membership, which should occur in late summer or early fall. The AHA Annual Meeting and Conference will have a session dedicated to breed improvement, and representatives from all areas involved in the process will discuss how the evaluation works and the benefits of its implementation. I encourage you to join us Oct. 27-29 for the Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo. I am proud of all who have been involved in the process. It has been exciting to see the evolution, and this will again show the beef industry the commitment that the AHA and its members have to beef cattle improvement. I would also like to thank AHA members and Board members who attended this year’s BIF convention. I encourage all of you to go to the AHA’s Hereford Headlines blog, and to watch the short videos summarizing many of the topics covered. Hereford.org

Performance Matters

Is It Worth It?

by Shane Bedwell

The cost of genotyping your herd will allow you to make informed decisions.

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

| July 2017

This year at the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) conference, genomics continued to be the focus. It wasn’t long ago the thought of having an enhanced expected progeny difference (EPD) through DNA seemed out of reach. The concept was fine, but having a quality data set to generate the molecular breeding values (MBVs) soon became the obstacle for most breeds. Because of the vision of former American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors and key AHA staff, the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) was initiated in 1999. Since its inception, there have been more than 340 bulls tested from which the AHA has received complete phenotypes. Through this program, along with the United States Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC) 2,000 bull project, AHA leveraged the genotypes gained from these projects and correlated them with existing EPDs on these bulls backed by extensive phenotypes. The bulls were the basis of the training population used to generate what we now report today as genomic enhanced-EPDs (GE-EPDs). You see, in order to have MBVs added into the animal’s EPDs, there had to be research conducted to see what markers correlated to specific traits. Since 2012, the AHA has generated more than 35,000 genotypes from breeders and research projects. These genotypes are crucial, and along with Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™), AHA will be able to validate future genomic predictions. There was a theory when genomics first came on the scene that there would be no need to continue collecting phenotypes. The genomic prediction is only as good as the phenotypes behind them, and eventually the population from which you are collecting DNA will be different from the original base. The saying “your house is only as good as the foundation” applies here.

Again, because of the NRSP and TPR programs, the AHA was able to build the right foundation and to position Hereford very well to move forward.

An accurate prediction Early on, there was doubt if GE-EPDs worked. Most have figured out they do work — it’s just a matter of how well. Oftentimes I hear, “I spent $55 to see my bull only move 0.2 of pound on birth weight.” My response is this validation is a good thing. Increasing accuracy and proof on young animals is critically important. You can now place more confidence in this young herd sire as his phenotypic data aligns with the genetic markers he inherited from his parents. Along with this new confidence, I’ve seen more breeders genotyping whole calf crops or at least all of the females or all of the bulls. This genotyping is great, and we need more of you doing it. Why? It’s just like the principle of TPR. Getting representation from only the best in a calf crop creates bias. Getting the entire contemporary group genotyped allows for the most accurate prediction. I also hear breeders say, “I have 100 females, that’s a lot of money if I were to genotype them all.” You’re right, and I’m not denying that. However, what is the cost of genetic improvement? The $5,500 you spent genotyping all of your females allowed you to make the best and most informed decisions on which females to keep and which ones to cull — not to mention, being able to maximize their genetic potential early in life. In my opinion, you just made an important investment to the future success of your operation as well as your customers. I’ll close with this. I heard a quote at BIF from University of Georgia geneticist Daniela Lourenco that wraps up this topic very well. “Genotypes are like credit cards,” she says. “You can use them for a while, but then you will need cash (phenotypes), if you want to continue to use them.” Hereford.org

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

by SyAnn Foster

Early bird fall inventory deadline — July 15 Members participating in the Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) program can turn in their 2017 fall herd inventories until July 15 to receive a 25-cent-per-head discount on every female maintained on the fall inventory. Remember, the herd inventory should reflect females expected

to calve in the 2017 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, 2017. 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

program, the dam must be enrolled on the most current herd inventory.

Sept. 1 — final fall inventory deadline Fall inventories updated after Sept. 1 will incur a $2-per-head surcharge on every female maintained on the fall inventory. Take advantage of the early bird discount and save money. continued on page 18...

How to update your 2017 fall herd inventory on MyHerd.org Follow the steps below to update and submit your cow herd inventory using MyHerd, or visit Hereford.org to view the step-by-step MyHerd tutorial about how to update your herd inventory. 1. Log into MyHerd and click on the “to-do list“ task labeled “2017 Fall Herd Inventory Update needed.” 2. MyHerd populates a list of females expected to calve this fall. Review and update the cow herd inventory. Remember, the purpose of the cow herd inventory is for you to supply an accurate list of females expected to calve this fall. a. If the populated list is correct, click “Submit job now to bill inventory?” b. To make changes to any cows listed, follow the steps below: (1) Click on the females needing to be updated. (a) Click the “Disposal” button for females previously sold or culled and give the proper disposal code and disposal date. (b) Click “Inventory Status” to mark females as “NS (Next Season)” if they’re bred to calve in the spring 2018 calving season, “NE (NonExposed)” if they haven’t been exposed to breeding conditions or provide a proper calving ease score for females not expected to calve this season. (2) Add new or additional females to the inventory; provide their registration numbers and assign a herd ID. (3) 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 numbers, letters, or both, usually the same as the individual’s tattoo number. Herd IDs are used in place of long registration numbers to speed up calf recording. (4) Update your bull inventory (optional) from the Whole Herd TPR calf crop tracker table. (5) When the cow inventory list is up-to-date, click the “Submit job now to bill inventory?” button. 3. Once the “Submit job now to bill inventory?” button is clicked, the inventory is submitted to the AHA and the charges are billed. Note: If your inventory has already been billed, “Submit job now to bill inventory?” won’t be displayed on the 2017 fall cow herd inventory page.

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, American Hereford Association (AHA) staff does not automatically remove the animal from your herd inventory

Home of the

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 embryo transfer (ET) calves to register, and I do not own the donor dam. Do I need to add the donor dam to my fall inventory?

Q: Can a multi-owned dam be in my inventory and another current owner’s inventory in the same season?

A: No, you do not have to add the donor dam to your inventory. However, a recipient cow inventory fee for each ET

A: Yes, multi-owned females should be kept on inventory if an owner plans to register calves out of them.

CHB Bites

Certified Hereford Beef News

by Kaylen Baker

“CHB Bites” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program. To get involved with CHB on social media, search Certified Hereford Beef on Facebook and Pinterest, @certifiedherefordbeef on Instagram and @crtherefordbeef on Twitter.

CHB makes a splash at spring food shows The Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) team hit the road this spring and conquered the food show circuit in April and May. CHB Regional Brand Managers Ron Santoro and Tim Norsten made stops at more than 10 food shows across the nation, including shows in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Virginia, Illinois, Nebraska and Missouri. “The best thing I enjoy about food shows is when we are able to get producers at the event and converse with the consumer,” Santoro says. “The consumer is always blown away with the passion of these ranchers, as well as the science behind running a successful operation. This really puts the two pieces of the puzzle, the producers and consumers, together.” Norsten agrees a producer presence at food shows enhances the experience for attendees. “In my experience, we are the only brand that brings producers to events to speak with restaurant owners, chefs and consumers,” Norsten adds. Aside from connecting the pasture to the plate, food shows allow CHB staff to make connections with a large volume of people in a short period of time. “We have the opportunity to speak with so many people at food shows, hundreds, and sometimes thousands, who all get to try the product,” Norsten says. “My favorite part of my job is when someone

tries Certified Hereford Beef for the first time and I see their smile. I call it their ‘ah-ha’ moment.” Santoro agrees the product speaks for itself. “When a customer tries the product, I know Hereford beef has them hooked,” Santoro says. “The look on their face after sampling the product says it all.”

CHB supports the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Ball In a field in the middle of Anselmo, Neb., thousands of people from across the U.S. gathered to raise money for the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha, Neb. CHB joined in the celebration and fundraising efforts as an event sponsor. “Certified Hereford Beef had a very nice set-up in the beef education tent where we were able to give information about the program and samples donated by Greater Omaha Packing to an estimated 1,000 people,” says Trey Befort, CHB director of commercial programs. “We had a great reception of the product and people really enjoyed it. We had a lot of compliments from visitors.” CHB consistently stacked up to the competition. “We were in a tent with two of our competitors,” says CHB Regional Brand Manager Tim Norsten. “Throughout the course of the day, our booth was very busy with folks sampling the product. At one point, we had five members of an Angus ranch at our booth talking about CHB. After sampling the beef, they were very complimentary of how great our product tasted and how tender it was.”

CHB Regional Brand Managers Tim Norsten and Ron Santoro provide educational information to attendees at the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Ball, an event to raise money for the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

Norsten also participated in cooking demonstrations at the event where he talked about Hereford beef, the cross utilization of different cuts of meat and how to plate meals. “I did a cooking demo once every 45 minutes where I was showing approximately 50 people how to prepare delicious CHB meals,” says Norsten. “Throughout the day I cooked four meals, including a cowboy steak skillet on a bed of cowboy caviar, grilled filet mignon with sautéed yellow and green zucchini, a hungry man rancher hot beef sandwich stuffed with cheese, smoked brisket and chuck roll, and a smoked brisket and chuck quesadilla with spicy chipotle aioli, salsa and guacamole.” CHB staff was happy to play a small role in supporting the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center. “We were thrilled to have CHB be a part of this event that raises money for a great cause,” Befort says.

Youth Movement

A Tough Farewell by Kelsey Stimpson and Jessica Middleswarth

It seems like just yesterday we were pacing outside the conference room in Harrisburg, Pa., preparing to give our final speeches. Our nerves were high, but the thought of receiving that maroon jacket gave us the courage to give the final speech. We will never forget the night of the banquet. The stress was high, and we both had knots in our stomach. Time kept dragging on, and we both prayed that Keysto Stotz, a retiring National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board member, would talk a little faster. No matter the outcome, we both wanted the banquet to be over and to hear the final result

of who would receive a coveted maroon jacket. Finally, American Hereford Association (AHA) Director of Junior Activities Amy Cowan took her place at the podium, which meant she was about to announce the new group of NJHA directors.

Remembering the start Kelsey was joined by her mom, Katie; uncle, Mark; and friend, Dana, that night. When Amy started to speak, Kelsey’s mom squeezed her hand. As Kelsey looked around the room watching the retiring directors, she hoped and prayed that one would walk her way. She spotted retiring director Courtney Tribble hugging her father and sister just across the room. As Courtney walked toward Kelsey, Kelsey’s heart completely sank. Courtney walked right by her, and Kelsey was overcome with devastation. Just as Kelsey thought it was over, Courtney turned around, smiled and handed Kelsey her maroon jacket. On the other side of the room, Jessica was filled with the same suspense as she watched retiring director Shelby Rogers come toward her. Around the room, Jessica noticed that three other candidates already received a jacket, meaning there was only one spot left. As Shelby walked past Jessica’s table, Jessica’s family comforted her as they all thought she hadn’t received one of the four spots. It was at that moment Shelby creeped up behind Jessica, jacket in hand. That night, neither of us knew what the next three years would bring. Fast-forward three years, as NJHA chairman and vice chairman, we reflect on our time spent on the board, beginning with all the

fun memories. Just a few weeks after getting on the junior board, we traveled to Tulsa, Okla., for our summer meetings before the Faces of Leadership Conference. Before a long day of meetings, we were able to spend some time getting to know the other board members. The sun was out, the lake was beautiful and everyone was excited for a fun day on the water. And then came the aftermath of aloe-covered and second-degree burns. Our skin was comparable to that of a lobster, and we thought poor Taryn Adcock was going to burst into flames, barely being able to put on pants the next day. We spent almost 12 hours on the lake that day, and, consequently, a few of us may have failed to reapply sunscreen (sorry, Mom).

Making memories Another favorite memory while serving on the board was zip lining across the Palo Duro Canyon in Amarillo, Texas, last summer. For all of you at home that think our board is filled with courageous dare devils, trust us when we say getting everyone to go across the canyon was not an easy task. As new boardie initiation, we felt it was only fair to make Austin Matheny go across the canyon first. For as macho as Austin looks, we all thought he’d be the thrill seeker of the group but, boy, were we wrong. His legs were shaking, and we all quickly learned Austin’s biggest fear is heights. However, after some encouragement from the team, he took the leap and sailed across the canyon. Following Austin’s lead, the group lined up behind him and each took his/ her turn through the canyon. Hereford.org


While serving on the board, we have been fortunate enough to travel to some extraordinary places. This past fall, we were able to attend The Harvest II, hosted by the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) in California’s beautiful wine country. Coming from Idaho and Wyoming, this was definitely a nice change of scenery and climate. The view was absolutely stunning, but being able to interact with Hereford breeders throughout the country was even more rewarding. We both agree while serving on the board, one of our favorite parts has been planning and participating in the Faces of Leadership Conference. From Arkansas to Colorado to Texas, we have seen many different operations and scenery while being able to meet some remarkable junior members. Growing up, we always considered this conference to be a highlight of the summer not only because we get to see friends from across the country but because we are able to gain unique experiences and leadership skills that we can use in all aspects of our life. Juniors, especially, should take advantage of every opportunity within the industry, and one of the best ways to do so is to participate in as many Faces of Leadership Conferences as possible. We can both speak from experience skills gained at these events have helped us get through many obstacles in life, whether they were related to college or even searching for a job. People often ask, “What have you gotten the most out of while serving on the board?” Hands down, we can confidently say the people we have met and the friends we have made are irreplaceable. One of our duties as board members is traveling to state and regional shows throughout the spring and summer. We have traveled from Washington to Texas to Massachusetts, meeting and making new friends across the nation. These experiences and friendships wouldn’t have been possible without the junior board.

A few words of thanks While serving, we have had the privilege to work with some of the most outstanding people in the industry. In particular, our influential Hereford.org

advisors serve as the backbone of our success. Guiding us through tough times and being there to celebrate our victories, these individuals have truly made an everlasting impact on our lives. To Cliff and Pat Copeland, Kyle and Jodi McMillian, Bob and Jami Goble, Andy and Betsy Beck, and Max Stotz, we want to personally thank you for touching our lives and mentoring us throughout our years on the board. We would like to personally thank all of the AHA staff, especially Amy Cowan and Bailey Clanton, who have put in countless hours to make our three years on the board nothing short of great. We call them our fearless leaders, the ones who continually put up with our crazy group while pushing us to make the greatest influence on our junior association. We call the junior board a family, and that is exactly what we would consider us. Spending countless hours in a board room debating on junior nationals will always give an individual a different perspective of someone. We have experienced different states and different shows and have all become far too familiar with the different showrings across the nation. Together, we have been through sunburns from the lake, half-day-long layovers and have all experienced the dreadful pain after working the showring for 12 hours. We have been through thick and thin, ups and downs, and the best three years of our lives with one another. Before running for the board we might have been strangers to one another, but coming out of it all we truly are a big family. Last but not least, we would like to thank every single member of the NJHA for making our term on the board more than we could have ever asked for. Thank you for allowing us to serve your association, and thank you for personally changing our lives. We feel very fortunate to be a part of the best junior association in the country, and serving as your chairman and vice chairman has been the most rewarding experience.

Foundation’s Focus

Making a Difference

by Amy Cowan

How do we measure success? In the Hereford breed, success is measured by the data we collect, sale averages and the demand for our branded product. However, for the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA), we measure success in the number of National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members’ lives that we touch. Whether through scholarships, the Faces of Leadership Conference or educational opportunities at the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), each year we work hard to create more opportunities than before. This past year I have been reminded numerous times just how lucky this breed is to have a generous group of donors and supporters who step up each and every time to support Hereford youth and the future, not only of agriculture and the Hereford industry, but also of this great nation and the world. The Harvest II fundraiser, hosted last summer in California, was a monumental occasion for HYFA, and I am still in awe of what our Hereford family accomplished that evening in wine country. Thanks to donors like Jim and Marcia Mickelson, Bonnie and Rick Malir, the Doug Perks Family, the 2016 JNHE host committee from Wisconsin and all those who raised

2017 fall scholarship update The Hereford Youth Foundation of America scholarship application deadline is Sept. 1. Please visit hereford.myreviewroom.com to start working on your application today. More than $130,000 will be awarded this fall, including 10, $10,000 Vanier Family Scholarships.

up their paddles, we were able to reach some major milestones and to make a huge difference in all of our HYFA missions. This event has propelled us onto a new path of growth, and this fall we will unveil HYFA’s new strategic plan that sets the course for the next five years and beyond. From events like The Harvest II, new programs such as Feed the Future program were born with our longtime friends and supporters at BioZyme® Inc. We still have plenty of room to grow this program, but we appreciate all of the support thus far and are excited to see what the future holds for HYFA and Feed the Future. See Page 198 of this issue for a listing of all of the participants, and if you don’t see your name on the list, we hope you will be encouraged to send in your receipts to help us make a difference in the future lives of Hereford youth. Scholarships and the donors behind the names of these scholarships are the backbone of HYFA and one of the most rewarding measures of success that the foundation has. Last year, with the addition of the Vanier Family Scholarship program, HYFA proudly awarded more than $160,000 in money to deserving individuals during the Hereford Honoree Reception in Kansas City, Mo. One by one the scholarship recipients made their way to the stage and told their stories. Standing on the stage with these bright young minds and hearing firsthand what these scholarships meant to them sure made me proud of the talented, passionate and driven youth that make up the NJHA.

Upon college graduation, Briana Katzenberger, NJHA member from Wisconsin, shows her gratitude for HYFA’s support of her education.

NJHA member Briana Katzenberger from Wisconsin said it best on social media when she proudly displayed a word of thanks to HYFA on her graduation cap. “With my college graduation tomorrow, I feel it is necessary to give a shout out to this amazing foundation. All the way from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, I would like to say thank you so much to everyone that is a part of it and for your outstanding generosity. I couldn’t have done it without you all.” Scholarship recipients like Briana are the future. We send our thanks to all our supporters and friends — HYFA is making a difference.

Hereford Women

It’s All for the Roses

by Maddee Moore

There is no question that the garland of roses is a signature of the Kentucky Derby. As we are approaching another exciting Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), this iconic blanket will be taking on new meaning for all attending and participating in this year’s event. As for the National Hereford Women (NHW), our determination of success isn’t just the solid blanket of roses but the Hereford youth that we see blooming year after year.

Queen’s Tea Excitement for the JNHE doesn’t stop at the ring, as National Hereford Queen Annah Dobson is planning the 7th annual Queen’s Tea event to be the biggest yet. Pre‑registration has been encouraged for this wildly successful event. The tea will feature photo opportunities with state and national royalty, crafts and snacks. The annual highlight of the tea is the selection of the junior princesses to assist the state and national queen in the ring during showmanship. “This event brings ladies of all ages together, and allows us to spend time outside of the barn while still connecting and sharing our passion tied to Hereford

cattle,” Dobson says. “I am looking forward to seeing friends I have made throughout my reign at the tea, while meeting so many new Hereford enthusiasts.” Following the Queen’s Tea will be the state queens’ coordinator forum. This time is dedicated to sharing information about state queen programs throughout the country as we continually work to enhance the presence of the queen program. Planning for the week and any questions that state coordinators have on ring activities will be answered at this time.

Scholarships and contests It takes a team to get kids and cattle to the ring and to every event at the JNHE. The NHW is proud to be a part of the team behind the scenes making scholarship interviews and a multitude of contests happen. As the exhibitor list continues to grow so does the participation in these educational contests. We are continuing to work on new scholarship opportunities and thank those who have generously contributed to the Lot 17 program this year. The NHW board members are looking forward to the great recipes, teamwork and focus that the Hereford youth bring to each opportunity.

Ways and Means The biggest fundraiser each year for the NHW is the Ways and Means booth at the JNHE. We have several new items that are sure to be of interest for all ages. Framed and unframed prints will be available for purchase throughout the week. The highly sought after NHW annual T-shirt is sure to be a fan favorite for the whole family. Be sure to stop by the booth to check out all the great Hereford-themed items. The time, energy and effort that it takes to make a successful JNHE trip can seem daunting for all of us. Without a doubt, these are the memories and experiences that are allowing our breed and tremendous Hereford youth to continue to bloom. Safe travels to all, and the NHW can’t wait to see you all this summer.

Leadership Lessons by Kindra Gordon

Never Quit: SEAL Shares Strategies for Life

I’ve had several opportunities to hear Navy SEALs speak of their training, their active duty and their philosophies toward life. I am always awed by their heroic patriotism, mental clarity and skilled leadership. I was in awe once again as Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill addressed attendees at a past Cattle Industry Convention. O’Neill dedicated 10 years of active duty to the country and was part of the SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden. Having been active in more than 400 combat missions around the globe, O’Neill shared several stories from his grueling SEAL training and his life-and-death experiences from his combat missions. He noted lessons learned in combat can be applied to strategies for achieving success in daily life. The following are among his leadership principles from which we can all learn: Hone your people skills. O’Neill shared SEALs are trained and work in teams that rely on one another in high-stress situations, and he said, “We learned people work harder if appreciated…No one wants to work for a jerk.” Recognize planning vs. being overprepared. O’Neill pointed out there is no such thing as a perfect plan — and often people overplan for things that will never happen. He said, “Life is what happens around you while you are making the perfect plan.” Rather,

O’Neill encouraged planning and preparation but advised having the ability to adapt and to adjust to survive and to be successful. Learn how to take emotion out of the professional decisionmaking process. O’Neill shared how in stressful situations most people react emotionally. He advised, “Often your initial reaction [to something] is the wrong reaction. Take a second to make an informed decision. I tell my guys [the SEALs] ‘Don’t react. Do respond.’” Never quit. O’Neill noted combat — and life — can be grueling. But to that he said, “Remind yourself you are not having a bad life, you are having a bad day. Never quit, it will get better.” Have a sense of humor. O’Neill says humor helps everyone get through each day. Small goals lead to long-term goals. A lesson O’Neill learned in his SEAL training: To achieve a long-term goal, think about little victories throughout the day, then repeat that process each day. During his grueling training, he says, he would break the day into mini-goals a few hours at a time. Learn to handle stress. Regarding stress, O’Neill says, “It’s self-induced. It’s in your mind. It’s a bag of bricks. You can carry it like guilt, or you can put it down and you should. You only feel the amount of stress you allow yourself to feel.”

Recognize fear vs. panic. “Fear is good, it makes you think. But panic is contagious and in combat it’ll get a team killed. Panicking is not going to help you,” O’Neill says. He also emphasizes letting go of mistakes. “If you dwell on a mistake, you can’t go on to the next activity. It’s a total mind game.” Communicate. “People as a team work better when they know what they are doing and why,” O’Neill says. “Preparation comes from training, communication, and repetition... Just because you are talking doesn’t mean you are communicating. Learn effective communication, so when you are done saying what you need to say, stop.” Avoid complacency. Lastly, and most powerfully, O’Neill says complacency kills. That is a cardinal rule among SEALs. O’Neill notes, “Success causes complacency.” He says one of his favorite quotes comes from basketball great Michael Jordan, who said: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed.” O’Neill concluded by stating a successful mission means you are “prepared to fight, can perform under fire, trust your people and will never quit.” He added, “The enemy is often all the doubts in your head. Keep moving forward and never quit, and you will be just fine.” Editor’s note: Watch a documentary with O’Neill sharing his experiences in his own words at robertjoneill.com. O’Neill also encourages support of YourGratefulNation.org, which is devoted to efforts to assist veterans after active duty. Kindra Gordon is a freelance writer from Whitewood, S.D.

Beef Talk Wean Early and Save 25% of Pasture Forage by Kris Ringwall

The current dryness affecting the land has caused all livestock producers to review options. For some in a drought situation, the only real solution is rain. But producers need to take charge, whether the season is dry or wet. The Dickinson Research Extension Center has and will continue to manage during dry times. The center is in a semiarid climate and dryness is not a stranger. Managing grazing time and stocking rate are critical. As a result, the center has measured available biomass on the range when cows have their calves removed in midAugust versus early November. The thought is that removing calves would lessen the impact on the production unit during times when rain is scarce. First, no drought plan works if there is no grazing plan with which to start.

The retained ownership question To begin, a properly designed grazing system that does not put undue pressure on grass is a priority. While those wetter-thanaverage years tempt producers to increase stocking numbers, years like this one remind us overstocking is never a good idea. Stick to the properly planned grazing system and appropriate adjustments. This discussion is not about what grazing system is best, though. The main point is to have a grazing system. The next step is to plan orderly herd reductions that fit the operation. Today, I want to focus on early weaning as an option to manage dry pastures later this summer. Center research has shown weaning calves in August lowers the nutritional requirements of the cow herd because dry cows eat less than lactating cows. Center animal scientist Doug Landblom notes “…

34

| July 2017

weaning calves early has a positive impact on growth and efficiency during the backgrounding phase, improves cow body condition score, reduces range forage utilization, and shortens the lifetime feeding period of steers held for retained ownership.” Data collected by Landblom showed the significant benefits of early weaning. At the center, the body weight of cows whose calves were weaned in mid-August was 1,296 lb. in August, and the cows still weighed 1,311 lb. in November. Cows with calves not weaned early weighed 1,333 lb. in August but lost significant weight nursing calves on dry pasture and weighed 1,197 lb. in November. In other words, the cows with calves that were weaned early gained 15 lb. and utilized 28% less forage biomass than the cows whose calves were not weaned early. The cows with calves that were not weaned early lost 136 lb. of body weight. Wow! Cows with August-weaned calves gained weight and saved a significant amount of valuable feed. Cows with traditionally weaned calves lost weight while consuming more feed. The data also reflected a significant decrease in body condition score for the cows: 6.1 for the cows with calves that were weaned early and 4.7 for the cows with calves that were not weaned until November. This is a difference of almost a 1.5 body score less for the cows with calves that were weaned traditionally. The focus today is the cow. In a dry year, the logic would be to do some culling, getting poorer cows off the pastures. But before culling too deeply, consider pulling the calves off the cows and simply leaving the cows on pasture. If the year continues to be dry, the cows may not perform as well as the cows in Landblom’s study at

the center, but we have no reason to believe they would not be better off than the cows with calves at their side. The logic is that calves can be hauled to the feed easier than the cows, so keep the good cows on pasture and move the calves to a more plentiful and reasonable feed source. One point of caution: Although the early weaned calves perform very well postweaning, lightweight calves still do not bring enough dollars to offset the production costs associated with the cow. The center calves weighed just shy of 400 lb. in August. A 400 lb. calf has tremendous potential to grow once feed is located and appropriate arrangements are made. The question of selling the calf or retaining ownership needs to be asked.

A grazing plan Retaining ownership is an established concept but, for many, a new concept. In fact, many producers are very uneasy with the additional risk of owning calves once the calves have left the control of the home operation. But still, fast-gaining calves with good genetics designed for premiums on the rail make exploring the concept worthwhile. More on that later. Let’s return to where we started. By weaning calves early, a producer can save more than 25% of available forage in a dry year. That strategy is a great tool to have in the management plan and may very well need to be implemented this year. As with any drought management tool, do not wait until forage availability is critical for the herd. Implement drought plans sooner than later.

Thousands of young cattle enthusiasts have had many of their best memories through involvement in the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA). The NJHA hopes to shape young, responsible leaders, and it has done just that. Many NJHA alumni are in the industry now raising Hereford cattle, taking on impressive careers and even bringing their kids back to the Junior National Hereford Expo every summer. Follow this series to read more about just a few past NJHA members who are making a difference in the industry.

Passion Pays Off With Hereford roots, young agricultural educator Hayley Miller is leaving a lasting impact on the youth of Clever High School’s FFA. by Haley Stark

B

eing a lifelong cattle enthusiast, a dedicated agricultural educator and an ambitious advocator is no easy feat for most, but for 24-yearold Hayley Miller, it’s a lifestyle she proudly represents, tackling obstacles with nothing but a smile. Standing at just five feet tall, Hayley is the new, energetic agricultural teacher at Clever High School, Clever, Mo., and she’s certainly paving the road for a very successful youth program, but her involvement doesn’t stop there. Hayley comes from Hereford roots with a passion for the cattle industry, and despite her hectic schedule, she still finds time to go home, help

out on the farm and support her younger siblings in the showring.

A Hereford-rich history Dive into southern Missouri, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by rolling, lush green hills accented with the uncut grass blowing in the wind. Tall, unwavering trees pop up on the horizon and across the pasture, and just beyond the white fence lines are the red and white focal point — Hereford cattle. Outside the picturesque property, there’s a tradition of quality and family at Miller Herefords, Lebanon, Mo. Originally from Thorntown, Ind., Hayley’s grandfather, George Miller, started

raising Herefords in the late 1940s after he graduated high school, and the family business continued to grow and to improve from there. The apple certainly didn’t fall far from the tree when Hayley’s father, Rusty, began buying his father’s cattle after high school. As for Hayley, she can’t remember a time where they didn’t have Hereford cattle. “It’s what dad has always had,” Hayley explains. “It’s a family tradition.” Hayley recalls wanting to show as soon as she could as a child. Although the youngest age to show is just seven years old, Hayley and her older brother, Clayton, started working with cattle much earlier. Since then the Miller family has attended every Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) except for one, when it was hosted in Montana in 2001. Showring success is something the Miller family pride themselves on. In 2008 they exhibited the reserve champion carcass steer at the JNHE. With several class winning heifers in the following years, their JNHE accomplishments were once again highlighted in 2010, when they had the grand champion cow-calf pair. One year later, Hayley showed the 2011 JNHE Grand Champion Bull, a memory still standing out as a favorite. Hayley is proud of a heifer they exhibited recently at the Missouri Cattlemen’s All-Breeds Junior Show. There they represented the quality the Hereford breed offers and took home reserve supreme heifer. “Beating out all the other breeds — that was really cool,” Hayley says. The banners were rewarding and unforgettable, but for Hayley the value of traveling and making connections was truly priceless. Attending nearly every JNHE set the stage for lifelong friendships within the cattle industry and opened Hayley’s eyes to the diversity found in different states. Hereford.org

between the community and her agricultural program. During her first full year of teaching, Hayley taught a range of year-long classes including ag 1, ag 2, ag construction and greenhouse. She also instructed semester-long courses of advanced animal science and food science. Haley showed flexibility and innovation throughout the year. The ag construction class, for example, encompassed hands-on skills like welding, woodworking and electrical work. Here students were encouraged to build their own projects and to execute their textbook knowledge into real-world applications. With an animal science and cattle background, Hayley had to put in extra effort to master the skills she would later teach her students. For her the job required continuous learning. “There’s a lot of days I stay after school, practicing and perfecting what I’m going to teach my kids,” she says. Her goal is to be as hands-on as possible while still stressing the importance of textbook knowledge. Hayley wants her students to see real-world agricultural applications, even if they can’t travel in person to production facilities.

This year Hayley was teaching her students about modern swine production, but she struggled with teaching what the inside of a real hog barn looked like without being able to leave a classroom setting. Her solution came as she merged traditional learning with technology. Hayley found videos online showing tours of real hog production facilities. Playing these for her students gave them a way to see modern management practices from the convenience of the classroom. The Agricultural Experience Tracker (AET), an online bookkeeping system designed specifically for tracking agricultural education experiences, was another teaching component Hayley implemented into her classroom this year. AET provides an alternative way to record each student’s Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) to traditional paper record books and award applications. Using these supplemental teaching aids gives Hayley’s students numerous ways to learn and to master material taught in class. To Hayley, the moment they finally grasp a concept is what makes teaching completely worth her effort. “Seeing the look on a student’s face when they get something, when it finally clicks — that’s the best part,” Hayley says. Being a new, fresh-out-of-school agricultural teacher does offer its challenges. For Hayley, the greatest obstacle is balancing a strong and caring student-teacher relationship with her students. For most agriculture students, it’s the countless

hours poured into SAEs, officer teams and contest teams that make other members and their advisor feel like family. The case is no different for Hayley, but it’s most important to her to first establish respect in her classroom and FFA program. “I have expectations for my students,” Hayley explains. “I can’t always be a laid-back advisor or teacher and it’s difficult figuring how to do that.” Hayley is quick to admit she is constantly learning in her career and leans on her agricultural teacher mentor and on-campus teacher mentor for guidance. Carli Jo Epperly, agriculture educator at Crane R-III school district and Hayley’s teacher mentor, speaks highly of Hayley’s journey as an agricultural teacher. Epperly points out Hayley’s compassion, enthusiasm and quality work ethic have created a more active program with a welcoming environment. “Hayley brings a fun and positive view to the agricultural program at Clever which not only helps to share her love of agriculture, but also sparks the interest in her students to grow more agricultural enthusiasts,” Epperly says. “Hayley is not afraid to ask questions if she needs directions, however these days she is asking fewer and fewer because she has grown more confident in herself and her program over the last year and half. She continually impresses me with her drive to improve herself and her students’ lives.” Realizing that many other agricultural education majors may find themselves in similar situations Hayley has experienced, she’s quick to offer the advice, “Take a deep breath.” Hayley also reminds new teachers that it’s okay to say “no” and delegating is imperative.

Community involvement

This year students have installed an additional four beds and have also been working on the landscaping, utilizing weed fabric covered with stone, around the community garden before it is fenced in. There is still room to expand on the garden in the future as well as to allow students to keep up with the eye appeal of the garden.

Reestablishing a strong connection between Clever’s FFA program and the surrounding community is at the top of Hayley’s priorities. This year she worked to rebuild community support while giving her students interactive projects. A grant from Tractor Supply Co. and the National FFA Organization has allowed the agriculture program Hereford.org


to build a raised bed community garden near the greenhouse. Students may use the garden for their SAE projects and it has been opened up to the community. Hayley also set up a mentor program focusing on the nearby junior high agricultural program. There, Hayley is striving to improve junior high FFA membership and to connect older FFA members with younger students. The Clever FFA Chapter invited community members to attend FFAhosted events like Clever’s annual back-to-school barbeque and the endof-the-year banquet. Hayley hopes getting community members at these events will raise support for activities. Because the FFA is a studentlead organization, Hayley often delegates activities to her sevenmember officer team. She provides students the opportunity to plan, organize and execute ideas into successful FFA events like hosting a petting zoo at their local fall festival and educating children about agiculture. Ryan Shurvington, Clever FFA president and Area XII secretary, says he admires the community service events Hayley has implemented into the program because they give the students a chance to educate the public about agriculture. “My favorite part about having Hayley as my ag teacher is the fact that she never lets you give up on the goals you’ve set,” Ryan says. “She has also inspired me to follow in her footsteps in becoming and agricultural teacher myself.” Hayley credits a lot of the program’s growth to improved community support and intends to building better connections with local supporters.

Making the connection For Hayley, growing up in the cattle industry continually serves as an asset to her education career. Traveling to shows, gaining experiences and being surrounded by the livestock industry have given Hayley insight she can now share with her students. This year Hayley took her animal science class on an industry field trip to Butler Polled Herefords Hereford.org

FFA members are helping to educate elementary and preschool students about livestock animals and their importance to agriculture and to them.

in Republic, Mo. There, her students learned embryo transfer technologies firsthand. This experience not only gave Hayley’s students an account of reallife agriculture and skill application but also exemplified the benefit of building a professional network. “I wouldn’t be able to do these things with my kids if it weren’t for the cattle industry and the connections I’ve made because of it,” Hayley says. Hayley also pulls from her past trials and tribulations to help her students deal with obstacles. When she was younger, Hayley ran for the junior board and wasn’t elected. This experience made her stronger, and she often tells her students, “There’s no such thing as failure, it’s just a first attempt at learning.” In fact, Hayley strives to teach students the same standards by which she lives. In her classroom, mistakes are just as valuable as successes. She stresses the importance of respectful debates and polite advocacy, especially when students in class have differing opinions of modern agricultural practices.

Future hopes Hayley is hopeful her FFA program’s growth will continue with more students enrolling in agricultural courses. Her motto for both the classroom and the family operation is “constant improvement and positive change.” In the future Hayley would like to incorporate a livestock lab and farm with her program. These would allow her students, especially those enrolled in her animal science class,

to gain more hands-on knowledge with the livestock industry. In terms of the cattle industry and the world of Herefords, Hayley is excited to see her younger sisters hit the showring. She frequently attends shows to support her family, see old friends and make more connections. One thing is sure, Hayley is just scratching the surface as an agricultural teacher with her go-getter attitude and bubbly personality. Her dedication to her students, innovation within her classroom and commitment to progress in the Hereford breed are a true rarity. She represents a determined work ethic in a younger agricultural generation, and her ambition should serve as a catalyst for success within her FFA program for years to come. “Being an agricultural teacher makes it easier to stay involved in the industry,” Hayley explains. “If you aren’t teaching it, you’re advocating for it.” July 2017 |

An Artist at Heart Hereford Publications Inc. Graphic Designer Bruce Huxol retires after 43 years working for Hereford breeders. by Julie Mais

A

talent that brought joy to Hereford breeders, created portraits to commemorate great achievement in the breed and helped to market cattle was humbly just another day in the life of American Hereford Association’s (AHA) graphic artist Bruce Huxol. On March 31, after spending 43 years working for Hereford breeders, Bruce walked out the doors of 1501 Wyandotte for a final time as an employee and marked the beginning of retirement.

“My whole career has been pushing Herefords and getting them better than anyone else,” he says, noting his competitive tendencies aided his efforts. Bruce first came to work for the Hereford breed as a layout artist for the Polled Hereford World — his first day was Nov. 1, 1974. A graduate of Central Missouri State University, he brought with him a commercial art degree and a double minor in graphics and communication. “This was a functional art degree for how to put together printed material,” Bruce says. “At that time I wanted to be an illustrator. All the famous people in the magazine business were illustrating covers and doing advertising and stuff like that. I have been pretty lucky — I’ve had illustrations published in every continent in the world but Antarctica.”

Transitions in Hereford advertising Hereford artist Bruce Huxol created this sketch of Cory Lowderman at the Junior National Polled Hereford Show in 1979 which was used for the “Chin Up” award given to Hereford youth participating in the 1980 junior national. Cory passed away after a tragic car accident and the Lowderman family has said this drawing serves as an inspiration for them to keep their faith during difficult times.

During the four decades working for Hereford breeders, Bruce witnessed tremendous change in both the beef industry and the magazine business. “Bruce is a true Hereford employee legacy,” says Caryn Vaught, production manager for Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI).

Today’s staff structure at HPI looks a little different than it did 43 years ago. “When I started with the Polled Hereford World we had two artists, a typist, a production manager, a production director, advertising coordinators, an editor, editorial staff, two layout artists and a darkroom for photos,” he says. Bruce says the late 1990s and early 2000s were a period of transition for digital publishing. “Lots of new graphic programs came in,” Bruce remembers. “My job as a whole remained in advertising production, but the way we did things did change.” Throughout his time with Hereford, he held numerous titles including production director, art director, editorial assistant and proofreader. “I also cleaned the bathroom and fixed the plumbing,” he laughs. “We were a hands-on staff and wore a lot of hats.” When Bruce started with the Polled Hereford World, the magazine was using hot type for production, which is using pieces of type manually put in position. “We still had some advertisers who used that older technology in their ads,” Bruce remembers. “We had to transfer that over and it was quite a deal.” Moving into the digital age, Bruce says the Polled Hereford World was the first magazine in Kansas City, Mo., to be designed solely on a computer. “We came in one day and everyone had a computer on their desk,” he says. “Computers were huge and memory was expensive.” The work was still extensive and making a mistake meant starting over again. “It was all very labor intensive,” he remembers. “But we may have had more advertising then than we do now.” Technology continued to evolve and so did efficiency. “We eventually decided to switch to Hereford.org


Macintosh computers,” Bruce says. “After struggling on the IMBs, we came in on a Monday morning and they had Macs on our desks. We were doing complete layouts and everything we had done before by that afternoon. We all caught on so quick. It was just amazing. When that type came back, everything was in position and you could see that typeface on screen. It made a lot of difference as far as your design.” A major change in Hereford advertising that Bruce has seen over the years is the content on the page. “Ads used to be more about getting people interested in coming to a sale vs. about what was in the sale,” he explains. “Everyone knew pedigrees by heart and when you advertised an animal you didn’t have to run the pedigree.” But today, making room for pedigree information is a must.

Years of sharing talent Bruce is an artist and his work proves it — winning awards for designs in advertising and creating beautiful portraits treasured by many. It’s a tradition for recipients of the Hereford Hall of Fame and the Hall of Merit to receive a Bruce Huxol original portrait. “I have witnessed the award recipients genuine pride when they were given the portraits that Bruce had drawn for them,” says AHA Board member Kevin Schultz, Haviland, Kan. “The award meant a lot to them, but the portraits they were given were the ‘we made it moment’ of the evening.” However, Bruce says, “Most of the artwork I’ve done, I don’t own. It’s out the door and I never see it again. But I enjoy seeing what people do with it and how they display it.” In retirement Bruce is looking forward to doing artwork for himself and exploring mediums like woodcut, pen and ink, and watercolor. “This is something I’ve always wanted to do. It will be fun.” Bruce also plans to spend more time volunteering with veterans. Hereford.org

“The group I have been volunteering with has a couple of new projects going on in Kansas City like building tiny houses for homeless vets,” he says. “My wife and I plan on going and helping build. There’s 14,000 homeless vets in the Kansas City area and as many as 140,000 vets that could qualify for disabilities. It’s a huge problem. If we can get 50 people off the street that’s great — but it’s just scratching the surface.” Bruce will continue work with Project Healing Waters, where he teaches veterans how to tie fishing flies and occasionally takes a group fly fishing at a local lake. He will also fill his days enjoying time with his seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Not growing up in the livestock industry, but in a rural community, Bruce has enjoyed a “getaway” from the suburbs and city life through his work. “Bruce’s talent touched many through the Hereford World,” says Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of

seedstock marketing. “Bruce has the ability to convey so much meaning to a sketch or piece of artwork that many have enjoyed throughout not only the Hereford industry but also the cattle industry.” “It’s been a crazy career,” Bruce says. “When I was in college my instructor said ‘the things you’re learning now will be obsolete when you graduate and you’ll probably have to change how you do things every five years — it’s much faster now. The only way you can hang on is be ready for change, because you know it’s coming. If you get too set in your ways, you’re just not going to survive.” Joe wishes Bruce the best in his retirement and says, “Time with his family and grandchildren will be special and he will also have more time to devote to his fly tying and fly fishing. It will be hard to replace his talent and we look forward to our continued working relationship with Bruce on future projects for the AHA.”

Across America

U  

 nder spacious skies, across those waves of grain, at the base of mountain majesties and in the fruited plain, Hereford breeders from sea to sea spend their days in this great country doing what they love — raising Hereford cattle. For centuries, those who have chosen to leverage the breed’s efficient, adaptable and hardy traits have benefitted from Hereford’s ability to thrive in all environments across the United States. This doesn’t come without hardship — years of drought, wildfires and encroaching wildlife and urban communities put pressures on Hereford breeders.

Across America In the following pages, we’ll take a trip across the United States to learn how Hereford breeders approach their businesses, challenges and successes in vastly different locations and environments. From Washington to Georgia, from Arizona to Ohio and from Texas to Connecticut and everywhere in between, no two Hereford operations are the same. But one thing remains constant — a love for the breed and gratitude for a way of life they feel blessed to experience.

Weyman admits his area presents a challenge because there are not a lot of big commercial producers. “Most of our bull customers come to us looking for a crossbreeding option,” he says. “I think our bulls are doing a good job and present a good value.” American Hereford Association Director of Seedstock Marketing Joe Rickabaugh commends the Hunts for the cattle they are producing. “Innisfail Farm is a Hereford operation that pushes the envelope and is data driven,” Rickabaugh says. “They strive to produce cattle that have superior EPD (expected progeny differences) profiles and work for their customers.” Because of the farm’s focus on carcass quality, more and more of its genetics are sought outside Georgia and even the Southeast. Because of their excellent carcass quality, embryos out of the Hunts’ top donor cows are in demand.

Dedication Weyman admits that improving herd-wide carcass quality hasn’t happened overnight. He and his father have been carefully selecting to improve carcass traits for about 25 years. “It slowly but surely builds on itself,” Weyman says. “The longer you do it the more of a base you build in those cattle and now we’re steadily improving each year.” Weyman points out that they focus on marbling rather than ribeye area. “Most of our genetics are going into crossbred situations so typically muscle is not an issue. Most people don’t want to sit down and eat a 17-inch ribeye. More like a 10- or 12-inch ribeye is what people are looking for. Typically ribeye size is not the limiting factor — it’s marbling.”

A local-grown restaurant and grocery, Farmview Market at Madison, Ga., offers Innisfail Farm beef.

Weyman continues, “Everyone wants black cattle because of the eating experience, quality and marbling. Right now I feel like if there’s a place the Hereford breed could improve it’s in marbling.” There’s been more carcass emphasis by those in the commercial industry the last few years, Weyman points out. “For a long time, I felt like we were treading water; customers weren’t real interested in carcass,” he says. “But now we’re shipping embryos all over the country on our top-end carcass cows.” He attributes that demand to the rise of Hereford genetics in general. “When Angus had genetic trouble, people turned to Hereford,” Weyman says. “Those Hereford bulls worked really good for them and now there’s more and more demand for these Hereford bulls if the resulting calves will still have adequate marbling.”

Environmental challenges Raising cattle in the Southeast has presented new challenges as of late. Weyman says 2016 was incredibly dry. Innisfail Farm has beautiful rolling hills of Bermuda and fescue grass. However, the drought forced the Hunts to feed three times more hay than normal during 2016, and the grass may have been permanently damaged. “We tried to isolate those cattle as much as we could and sacrifice certain pastures, but we were limited with what we could do,” Weyman says. “Our cattle were essentially drylotted from July to December of last year without any rain.” continued on page 60...

With careful selection, the Hunts have continually improved their product.

Typically, the area receives 50 to 55 inches of annual rainfall. Even in wet years, though, Weyman says the native Kentucky 31 fescue grass can cause problems. “It’s not good for cattle grazing,” he says. “It has negative effects like elevating their body temperature and cattle don’t do as well on it.” For that reason, Innisfail Farm pastures are seeded with MaxQ grass, a variety of fescue developed to improve livestock performance and to reduce the side effects of traditional fescue. Despite these challenges, Hereford cattle thrive in the area, Weyman says. “We raise cattle that do well here. They shed off quickly and are real feed efficient. That’s what Herefords are good at. We don’t stock real heavy and typically don’t have to supplement besides a little protein in the winter.”

Diversified Like many Hereford families, the Hunts enjoy spending time together at cattle shows. Weyman and his wife, Ashley, have three sons, Dru, 14;

Seager, 12; and Win, 6. They will attend their first Junior National Hereford Expo in 2017 as a family, and Weyman is thrilled to involve his boys in the business. “We are having a good time and learning a lot,” he says. What they learn managing and showing cattle goes hand-in-hand with the family’s other business — Godfrey’s Feed. Godfrey’s Feed has been in Weyman’s family since the 1870s, originally as a cotton warehouse. Now, it’s a state-of-the-art feedmill and seed supplier that is competitively priced but offers personalized service and custom blends for small producers. “The feed business has always been good to us,” Weyman says. “And the herd of cattle has given us almost like a research and development farm where we get hands-on experience with the products we sell. I am also at the shows with those who use our products and see what others are feeding.” Ever the entrepreneur, last year Weyman added a new business to his already busy life — Calf Book, a calf recordkeeping app for smartphones. The app was his idea, as he needed a better way to keep calf records and to be able to access them in the pasture. Downloadable in the App Store and on Google Play, Calfbook is a $15 annual subscription and organizes calf data by calving year. It houses information about each calf — from birth, weaning and yearling data Hereford.org

Once it is hooked up to the computer, data can be exported to Excel or MyHerd. It even offers a 30-day free trial. “I’ve been using it now for three years, but it’s only been out since January 2016. We’ve had an 85% renewal rate, so I think it’s working well for folks,” Weyman says. “Most all the reviews are real positive.” Whether it’s with the app, at the feedmill or in the pasture, Weyman uses his business savvy to help customers in the beef business. Rickabaugh describes Whitey and Weyman Hunt as visionaries. “They are always planning for the future,” Rickabaugh says. “They reach for new technologies which will improve their cattle and businesses. They ask good solid questions and are dedicated and enthusiastic.”

Wolfeboro, N.H. Alan Fredrickson grew up in Massachusetts, south of Boston, and was introduced to the Hereford breed in high school. About 14 years ago, he and his wife, Carolyn, purchased 108 acres overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee and began leasing about 100 acres for hay near the mountains of central New Hampshire. “The area where we lived, south of Boston, was mostly developed and there wasn’t much land left,” he says. “We decided we wanted to expand and made the move. Our farm may not seem large in some areas of the country, but we don’t have the land base that is available in other areas. Our farm is somewhat large for this part of the country.” The Fredricksons have two children: Anna, 21, now a junior at the University The Fredrickson family owns and operates Top of the Hill Farm where of New Hampshire, and Erik, 23, who will they have 80 head of Hereford cattle. graduate from Oklahoma State University next year with a degree in animal science “Sally grew up showing cattle in New and agricultural business.

Broad Brook, Conn. Double H Acres began in 1977 as a commercial cattle operation and hobby farm for Herb and Kathy Holden, with the family’s primary income coming from their sand and gravel business, Herb Holden Jr. says. He was born in 1980 and his sister, Ashley, arrived in 1983. By 1988 the family purchased its first registered Hereford heifer from Maple Rock Farms in Pittsburg, Vt. “Basically, it was my dream as an 8-year-old to raise registered Hereford cattle,” Holden says. “I was very much in awe of the big, beautiful Hereford operations in our area in the late ’80s and early ’90s.” By 1995 the Holdens had grown their herd to 50 registered Herefords. Holden and Ashley

became active in the NJHA, and Ashley went on to become runner-up in the National Hereford Queen contest in 2003. Holden ventured to Kansas State University in 1998 and earned his degree in agricultural economics and meat science. In 2006 he returned to the family sand and gravel business, where he now serves as general manager. At that time, the Holdens entered the Hereford show scene again. “I learned quickly, if you’re going to be showing, you need to learn how to make money doing it,” Holden says. “The show thing had become a second job, and it was costly. I said, ‘I have a degree in ag econ and meat science — I should start focusing on the meat business.’ Instead of selling live cattle to customers, we opened a store and sell beef cuts to the public.” Living 15 minutes from the metropolitan areas of Springfield Mass., and Hartford, Conn., was ideal for an urban market to begin. In 2009 Broad Brook Beef and Pork was established. The Holdens market 45 Hereford-based steers a year to the local community through farmers’ markets and their on-farm store, as well as supply five high-end restaurant partners and their subsidiaries. Every month, the Holdens also provide 40 lb. of beef for a learning lab through the Salvation Army. “We are still extremely passionate about Hereford genetics and showing — and we pay for it now through our growing beef sales,” Holden says. These three New England Hereford enthusiasts say many advantages, as well as a few challenges, can be found raising cattle on the East Coast.

Progressive producers

The challenges of New England Because of the close proximity to densely populated areas, Fitzpatrick says, environmental stewardship is of even greater importance. “We are more densely populated than in the Midwest or West,” he says. “We have to be cognizant of good farming practices, such as manure spreading, and the storage and use of pesticides. We have more eyes watching.” The higher population also leads to higher property taxes and higher property values, with undeveloped land selling for an average of $15,000 per acre in some areas. This equates to fewer opportunities for expansion, Holden says. “We have to also deal with population issues, as many farms get sold to be turned into subdivisions,” he says. “This leads to noise and odor complaints. Hereford.org

Fitzpatrick says despite some possible misconceptions, New England Hereford breeders are progressive and knowledgeable. “New England breeders are on top of their game,” he says. “We are well educated on genetics and breeding, and that has certainly evolved over the past 10-20 years.” Holden says New England Hereford breeders are dedicated to breeding quality genetics. And he and Fredrickson agree — the judges of their regional shows have taken notice. “Many times, the judges who come to our shows from other parts of the country comment they are really surprised with the quality of the cattle,” Fredrickson says. “We don’t have the numbers found in other parts of the country, but we certainly do have the quality.” July 2017 |

U.S. Drought Monitor Since 2011, much of the U.S. has has decreased significantly, forcing some producers seen drought conditions improve. to liquidate. Put simply, producers cannot raise beef cattle without water. Georgia Cattlemen’s Intensity Association Executive Vice President Will Bentley ■ Abornormally dry says the industry in his state has taken a downturn. ■ Moderate drought ■ Severe drought “We’ve had a lot of producers that have had to ■ Extreme drought decrease their herd size because they simply did ■ Exceptional drought not have enough grass to feed the animals they 2011 had,” he notes. Historically, rivers, streams and wells have been the avenues for cattle producers in Georgia to assure their cattle have fresh, clean water. Today, the picture looks considerably different. “You are seeing several of our rivers shrinking down,” Bentley explains. “Creeks that have flowed for years, that people have never seen dry, have 2012 2013 gone dry over the last year in conditions we haven’t seen in my lifetime.” The unusual dry spell extending across the Southeast is creating an array of obstacles for cattle producers in the area and is affecting their productivity. Kyle Gillooly, a Hereford and Angus breeder in Wadley, Ga., says he identifies the closing profit margin as the biggest challenge 2014 2015 when facing a drought situation in agriculture. Gillooly is the former president of the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association and owns Predestined Cattle Co. Along with the cattle business, his family runs a row-crop operation, providing him much insight to the effects of water in agriculture. If cattle prices are at an all-time high, Gillooly explains, the cost of feed and irrigating hay fields 2016 2017 is more justifiable. However, in today’s market, he Source: droughtmonitor.unl.edu says covering additional costs may not be worth the extra investment in some cases.

“You could consider it a new source that is not being used right now. There is a large quantity of it,” Evans notes. “Brackish water will help us conserve our fresh water. It provides the opportunity to extend the life of our water resource. We just need to be sure we do it right and the decisions are based on sound science.” These dry conditions are not reserved for the southern and southeastern states; California has faced extreme dry conditions in the last several years, as well. California Cattlemen’s Association Director of Government Affairs Kirk Wilbur says, like in Texas, producers in California are grateful for the better year in terms of rainfall. “We have a number of ranchers who have significantly reduced their herd numbers,” he explains. “Now that they’ve got more water resources available to them, they are going to be struggling to build this herd back up. I think drought over the past five or six years has probably been one of the larger water stories that we’ve got here in the state of California.”

Regulatory conversation

As of Jan. 1, 2017, the national beef cow inventory has grown by 2.2 million head in the past three years.

approximately 90% of ranchers surveyed in our area said they plan to continue to restock at a conservative level or remain the same.” As far as water resources in Texas and surrounding states, producers rely on both surface water and groundwater. Some of the groundwater in Texas comes out of the Ogallala aquifer that spans into several states in the southwestern and central United States. The cattle industry is not the only industry relying on the various aquifers, however. Many industries rely on groundwater resources, and without putting conservation-minded practices in place, the aquifers may deplete faster than they can recharge. With competition high, Evans is optimistic about various scientific technologies coming up the pipeline to extend the life of the aquifer. Purification of brackish water is one area many industry leaders in Texas have begun to develop. By simple definition, brackish water is deemed unusable because of its salinity content. Brackish water can be taken out of the Gulf of Mexico or pumped from the ground. Evans says there is a lot of brackish water out there, and if the science can support the use of it, a lot of regions will be benefitting in a big way.

The drought brought along a wealth of regulations hindering the productivity of California producers in some cases. Wilbur says Senate Bill 88 requires the State Water Resources Control Board to adopt emergency regulations requiring all people with a diversion of water in the state to report their use of water on an annual basis. In addition, the bill requires anyone who diverts more than 10-acre feet of water per year to install a measuring device at each point of diversion. “I could go on and on and on with some of the problems confronted by ranchers installing those measuring devices,” he explains. “The bottom line is the cost to the rancher of installing those devices in almost every circumstance in the state of California is very much going to outweigh any data benefit that the State Water Resources Control Board could get.” Aside from water use alone, California and other states have found themselves working through a plethora of environmental issues pertaining to water quality. Wilbur notes citizens across the country obviously want and need clean water for not only drinking purposes but also for recreational purposes. With these needs in mind, water again finds itself as a hot topic for many constituents in the political arena. Because of the negative light frequently shed onto agriculture, it is no surprise the industry catches a lot of backlash when the issue of water quality comes to the table. “I think it goes without saying there have been circumstances in the past where we’ve seen bad actors in the ranching community who have caused a lot of water quality impairments,” Wilbur Hereford.org


explains. “We’re not saying that cattle can’t cause water quality impairments. Unfortunately, because of those isolated circumstances in the past, livestock grazing is a low hanging fruit in terms of going after water quality impairments.” Regrettably, regulatory actions pertaining to water sometimes have an adverse effect on the productivity of cattle producers not only in California but also across the country. Producers in the Midwest, specifically Ohio, are experiencing similar issues with water quality. Elizabeth Harsh, Ohio Cattlemen’s Association executive director, says those issues are largely focused around Lake Erie. Its algae blooms have micro toxins in them, so it’s not safe to swim or be in water containing them. Harsh explains that algae blooms are harmful to the fishing and the tourist industries there. In order for the algae to bloom in the first place, it must receive nutrients. Many individuals have identified runoff from livestock waste as containing the nutrients causing the algae to bloom. “The overarching point is water quality is a huge challenge, but there’s a lot of contributors,” she explains. “It’s not just agriculture, and that’s an important point to make. However, agriculture knows we have a role to play, and we want to do our part while they work to address the other sources of the problem.” Harsh says new regulation in the northwestern part of the state prohibits spreading fertilizer or manure on frozen or snow-covered ground unless it is injected, incorporated or put on a growing cover crop. The fear is that snowmelt contaminated with livestock waste will run into streams and cause water quality issues. This regulation can come with a costly outcome for cattle producers like Bonnie Braford, St. Marys, Ohio. The Braford family has been raising Hereford cattle minutes from Grand Lake, St. Mary’s watershed for a number of years, and this new regulation has posed a new obstacle for the Bradfords and other producers in the area. In years past, they spread manure as fertilizer across their ground during the snow season. Today, they cannot spread manure or fertilizer on frozen ground or on unfrozen ground if the forecast indicates at least a 50% chance of a half-inch of rain within in the next 24 hours. Under this new regulation, producers are forced to create a different use for manure or to pay for a facility to store manure until the ground is dry and Hereford.org

there is no chance for runoff. To avoid inputting additional costs, the Brafords plant cover crops, spread their waste as nutrients for the soil and cut the cover crops in those fields to feed their cattle. Although there is still optimism in relation to the regulation implemented in Ohio, Harsh stresses the importance of legislators understanding water as it pertains to agriculture when writing laws associated with waters of the United States. “One of the things the beef industry has to do is be more transparent and open our farm gates and our barn doors to talk about what we do,” she says. “That necessitates empowering and encouraging producers so that they feel comfortable telling their story. They’ve got a great story to tell about being stewards 24/7, 365 days a year in all kinds of weather, whatever it takes to care for those animals. If we don’t tell that story, somebody else is going to tell it for us.” Legislation on water varies from state to state, but the potential for legislative changes on federal continued on page 78...

In some cases, regulatory actions pertaining to water and agriculture have an adverse effect on the productivity of producers across the country. July 2017 |

regulation worries some industry leaders across the country. For example, Bentley says Georgia’s government has traditionally been cognizant of agriculture when writing policy. Because of that knowledge, the state regulation has not posed any additional challenges for the cattle producer, but he can’t say the same for federal regulation. “All they are doing is adding a layer of bureaucracy and adding a layer of red tape that hampers industry and hampers profitability on farms,” he says. “As a result, they really don’t get

the desired effect because we are already doing those practices that provide clean water.”

Industry response Aside from moving forward in educating decisionmakers about water needs in agriculture, the industry has made significant strides in terms of sustainability as it pertains to water to combat this issue. Sara Place with NCBA notes a life cycle assessment completed in 2013 to identify the environmental impacts of beef production from grass to plate.

Water Use in Beef Production The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association conducted a life cycle assessment of beef production from grass to plate in 2013. Consumptive water accounts for one of the 14 sustainability indicators measured in the beef industry sustainability assessment.

The breakdown of water use is below. 18% feedlot

Since 2005, beef has reduced its water footprint by 3% by reducing irrigation water per unit of feed and increasing feed efficiencies, reducing packaging requirements, and new recycling technology in packing plants. Perhaps most important is that water is cleaner than ever before — since 2005 water quality has improved 10%.

“We found the beef industry has definitely improved. Even just from 2005 to 2011 our emissions to water have declined by 10%, and our water use has declined by 3%. That is expressing it by unit of beef consumed by U.S. consumers, so that is pretty tremendous progress for a six-year period,” she explains. “A lot of that is coming from the fact that beef production itself is getting more efficient and that efficiency is everywhere from crop production to better feeding techniques of animals.” Since 95% of water use during beef production takes place during crop production, Place says as irrigation techniques improve and conservation practices are implemented in crop production that will, in turn, improve the conservation of water in the beef industry. In addition, she foresees precision agriculture and simply keeping cattle out of riparian areas aiding in reaching the most sustainable cow herd possible. “Those types of techniques and different conservation practices related to feed production whether it is grazing animals, growing corn or what have you, is going to make a big difference in terms of continuing the progress the beef industry has already made,” Place notes. The rates of adoption of these methods by cattle producers is still unsure, but NCBA is in the midst of a research study exploring the rates at which producers are implementing production practices that increase sustainability in a beef herd. For Georgia rancher Kyle Gillooly, being an environmental steward is at the forefront. However, he notes the dry conditions in his area have made sustainability a challenge. “Environmental protection is easily attainable when you’ve got adequate rainfall. Everybody can do the right thing in those situations,” he notes. “I think our beef industry has understood the environmental aspects of sustainability, not only to cattle, but the land and the lifeblood — which is water. However, it is tough to know what to do when you are in a drought situation and trying to utilize the proper land management tools and beef production tools.” Along with management techniques, Gillooly notes genetic improvement and the progressive nature of Hereford breeders have aided in making the breed more durable when faced with less-thanideal conditions. “I think this breed itself has done remarkable especially in our part of the country, being more of a grass-fed region, these cattle have to maintain on pastures,” he explains. “At least for our operation, and as I travel and see other operations, breeders have an understanding of the genetics that produce cattle that get to the point where they can maintain on pasture even in a drought year.” Hereford.org

…breeders have an understanding of the genetics that produce cattle that get to the point where they can maintain on pasture even in a drought year. — Kyle Gillooly When times are hard, Gillooly says, proper management practices on the front end have helped him tremendously. He explains proper culling strategy makes feeding those calves more justifiable in a drought situation simply because they are worth more and are more durable. Futuristically speaking, Gillooly advises producers to keep environmental stewardship on the forefront. “As long as we can keep EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) from overstepping the boundaries of telling us what we can and can’t do, I think our beef industry leadership and our state cattlemen’s associations do a really good job of encouraging the beef producers to always keep the environmental aspects a top priority when you are raising these cattle.”

Across America

Hereford cattle have made their mark across the U.S.

Idaho stands as the number one potato producing state, accounting for nearly 30% of the country’s total production.

Fort Keogh Livestock and Range Research Laboratory (LARRL), located in Montana, is historically known as the leader in developing and utilizing genetic tools in livestock.

Miles City

West

Genetic evaluation and performance studies on cattle began at LARRL as early as 1924 when the State of Montana purchased a herd of registered Hereford cattle from George Miles and Sons.

Omaha

In the early 1990s, Colorado State University animal scientists conducted formal documentation of Hereford performance in the feedlot and on the rail for the AHA.

California produces more than 400 commodities and was the leading state for crop cash receipts in 2015.

Ft. Collins Denver

The Hereford bull named C Miles McKee 2103 ET, who set the world record for a cattle sale at $600,000, won supreme champion Hereford at the 2014 National Wester Stock Show in Denver.

Dairy products are the top commodities in both Arizona and New Mexico, followed by cattle.

All nine of the Western states have family ranchers distinguished as Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) producers.

Southwest In the Southwest, approximately 80% of water consumption goes to agriculture.

Naturally hornless Herefords were discovered at the TransMississippi World’s Fair in Omaha, Neb., by Warren Gammon. He decided to fix the hornless trait using the bull Giant and 11 Hereford females. In 1910 the American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) was founded.

Kansas State University hosted the first All-American Junior Hereford Show in 1978.

Oklahoma is home to the largest seedstock cattle operation, Express Ranches, which has a total of 200,000 combined ranch acres in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Alabama and primarily raises Hereford and Angus cattle. Texas is the leading state for raising cattle and calves at 12.3 million.

Over the past 20 years, Texas has had the greatest number of annual tornados, specifically in May.

The Midwest region has seven of the top 10 states in Hereford registrations, totaling 29,263.

Midwest The American Hereford Association (AHA) is the first breed association to own its own headquarters; a permanent residence was established in 1920 in Kansas City, Mo.

Kansas City

New York is the fourth most-populated state in the nation, and of the total 35,500 farms found in New York, 99% are family owned. The Midwestern states are known as the “Corn Belt” and are leaders in corn and soybean production.

In 1840 William H. Sotham and Erastus Corning began the first Hereford breeding herd in Albany, N.Y.

New York produces, on average, 29.5 million bushels of apples annually, making it the second-largest producer in the country. Albany

In October of 2000, the American Junior Hereford Association and the National Junior Polled Hereford Council melded into the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) and K.C. Keffer, Crawsfordsville, Ind., was selected to lead the organization as NJHA president.

Wolves have a wolves into Yellowstone National Park and 35 greater economic effect on many cattle operations. into central Idaho, according to the Washington Neil Rimbey, a range economist with the University Department of Fish and Wildlife. Since that time, the of Idaho, has been evaluating the economic population has grown from about 60 documented impact on ranches as part of a major study of wolfwolves in the northwestern corner of Montana to cattle interaction. “I’ve talked with ranchers and more than 287 wolf packs in the Northern Rocky gathered information that we’ve used in building Mountains, documented by USFWS in 2011. representative ranch budgets,” he says.

Even animals, is what gets attention, but the first years though it is now legal in Idaho to shoot a wolf that of this study showed that some of the indirect is harassing or killing livestock and during the losses actually have more of an affect on ranch hunting season on wolves, Davis continues to work profitability and sustainability. “There was a with United States Department of Agriculture study in Lemhi County, Idaho, about 16 years (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection ago in which calves on a BLM (Bureau of Land Service (APHIS) Wildlife Services (WS) help Management) allotment were tagged with tracking control the wolves. devices when they were turned out on the range. “You can’t deal with them yourself because they In this study, the ranchers and researchers were are smart and often nocturnal,” he says. “We can’t only able to actually find one out of every five protect our cattle because we don’t have the tools calves that disappeared.

First, they have the expertise, and second, it keeps us legal. Wolves are here because of federal action, and therefore the federal agency should help us deal with the problem wolves,” he says. Ranchers are sometimes able to kill a wolf that’s killing livestock, but often the rancher isn’t in the right place at the right time. “We’ve managed to kill only two wolves during the daytime that we’ve seen, in 22 years — yet the wolves have been killing our cattle every year,” Davis says. Another difficult situation for ranchers is that wolves have been driving elk herds down out of the mountains and into farm land. “Some areas now have depredation hunts on the elk because they are eating farmers’ and ranchers’ crops. The wolf problem is becoming urban, as well,” he says. Most people don’t realize the extent of depredation on game and livestock. “Even many ranchers don’t know how many of their lost Western ranchers find it difficult to protect their herds from wolves due to their expansive grazing ground. animals are due to wolves,” Davis says. “Some

of every seven animals killed by wolves),” Rimbey says. “They are only getting one confirmed depredation for every seven animals that are lost. The research in Wyoming also suggests that some of the indirect losses — such as more open cows, reduction in weight gain on the calves, more veterinary treatments for injured calves, stressed calves that got pneumonia, etc. — should raise the compensation rate up to about one to 14.”

Management challenges The change in cattle behavior affects management and is harder on the land and facilities. Cattle will often come back down off the mountains to escape wolves. They may use some areas more heavily while avoiding others. Cattle also crash through fences. “Both the Oregon and Idaho ranchers have mentioned the increase in labor and costs associated with managing cattle now, compared to what it was before they had wolves,” Rimbey says. “They now have to go out more frequently to check cattle, hire more riders and spend time meeting with Fish and Wildlife Service to try to get confirmation on death loss, etc.” Rimbey says many ranchers mention cattle being more difficult to manage. “They can’t bring dogs when working cattle; the cattle just keep attacking the dogs. The cattle will also attack a person on foot.” The study helped confirm what ranchers have suspected regarding behavioral changes in cattle and the economic effects. “For instance, each 1% change in calves weaned in Idaho amounts to about a $1,750 change in gross revenue, or nearly $6 per cow. This is just a starting point,” Rimbey says.

A cattleman’s perspective Len McIrvin and his son, Bill, who run Hereford cattle on their Diamond M Ranch in northeastern Washington, have suffered tremendous losses. “We had wolf damage starting about 12 years ago, but not as severe as recent years,” McIrvin says. “In 2011 we had 16 head killed; in 2012 it was 40 head.”

Sometimes even fencing off a herd will not deter wolves from harassing cattle in Western states.

Cattle running in big pastures make protecting livestock a challenge. “The idea of ‘protecting’ our cattle is ridiculous because they are out in the mountains, often in heavy timber and rough country,” McIrvin says. “There are many cows that we won’t see all summer long.” He notes that some will disappear, eaten by wolves, before anyone knows what happened. “If you have cattle in a 10-acre backyard pasture next to your house, you might have a chance to protect them, but no guarantee. We have a neighbor who put up electric fence around his winter calving area, with ribbons tied to it to try to deter wolves from coming into that little pasture. He was calving, and had to bring his cows into a small area to try to protect them because wolves were hitting them awfully hard.” McIrvin describes how his neighbor was able to determine the wolves’ behavior thanks to fresh snow. The first night after he put up electric fence and flagging, wolf tracks went around the enclosure but didn’t enter. The next night the wolves were coming in under the hot wire, and on the third night, there were several calves dead. “The wolves didn’t actually kill any, but the cows were so upset that they trampled several newborn calves as they stampeded around trying to protect their calves,” McIrvin says. “This was right outside his backdoor, less than 100 yards from his house.” He says a few years ago the Wedge pack in Stevens County killed 40 of their calves. “The USFWS (United States Fish and Wildlife) came in and took out 6 wolves — leaving just two in that pack,” he says. “On that range, between the Columbia River and the Kettle River along the Canadian border, we run 400 cows. In 2014 we didn’t have any cattle killed on that range, and the next year we were short a few.” McIrvin’s Diamond M Ranch runs about 700 cow-calf pairs in Ferry County, the next county west of Stevens County. In Ferry County the McIrvins had problems with the Profanity Peak pack. “In 2014 that pack killed 28 calves, and nearly that many in 2015, along with some cows,” McIrvin says. It can be a challenge to find them all. “Sometimes you have to ride 20 miles from where you unload your horse to get into where the cattle are. My son found two pair one day, and there were wolf tracks all around those cattle. He and another man rode in about 20 miles through deep snow to find those cattle, and the wolves were circling them and howling. He knows there were at least six wolves in that pack. It was thick timber, and he never saw a wolf, but for more than six hours there were wolves circling the horses and cattle as they trailed out. The wolves stayed just out of sight in the trees, circling and howling steadily — the most eerie feeling imaginable.” The USFWS makes decisions if and when to remove a pack. “If they immediately come in Hereford.org


when there’s a troublesome pack and eliminate or drastically reduce the numbers, in our experience this temporarily solves the problem,” McIrvin says. Wolves multiply quickly. “The wolves are overrunning us in this northeastern corner of the state,” he says. Wolves also kill to teach their pups. The animal is run to exhaustion and dies from the stress and trauma of multiple bites, but there is no outward sign of damage. “A few years ago when we had the most losses, we found one calf dead, without a mark on it,” McIrvin explains. “Bill and I couldn’t figure out what killed it. We finally called our county sheriff because we’d had so many losses that summer. We always call the sheriff, and let him call the game department.”

The sheriff and game department people came out to examine the calf. “It was a 500 lb. calf with no external signs of trauma. As soon as he started skinning that calf, you could see the bloody, pulverized tissue underneath. These are Hereford cattle, and thick-hided, with a lot of hair, and we could not see a mark on it until we peeled the hide back, and found the mangled hamburger underneath.” McIrvin feels strongly that there is no way to protect livestock from wolves, except to eliminate the wolves that prey on livestock. McIrvin says the relationship between wolves and humans is different today than in the past. “The female wolves are not training their pups to stay away from people. The pups are learning that livestock are an easy meal.”

State management efforts lead to controversy In 1973, Congress passed the Endangered Species Act requiring federal agencies to protect “endangered” and “threatened” species. Wolves native to the Western states were low in numbers due to decades of diligent suppression efforts. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) planned to introduce an experimental population. In 1995 and 1996, the USFWS released 32 Canadian gray wolves from Alberta, Canada, into Yellowstone National Park and an additional 34 wolves into the Salmon River Wilderness Area in Idaho. Wolves would theoretically stay in the backcountry and feed on deer and elk and would be protected until their numbers expanded. After the populations reached target levels in the various states, management of the federally protected wolves was to be turned over to the states’ game departments for them to determine how to address the issues with depredation. In 2011, the wolf population in Idaho was removed from federal protection. By 2016, there were an estimated 800 wolves in the state. Idaho Fish and Game seeks to control the population with a hunting season for wolves with a limited number of tags. Ranchers may also shoot a wolf out of season if the wolf is killing livestock, and ranchers can get help from the state to eliminate wolves that consistently prey on livestock. In 2015, hunters and trappers in Idaho legally killed 256 wolves and another 75 were killed by officials or by ranchers protecting their animals. Depredations in some areas are still a problem. Ranchers can work with the state agency and USFWS in these situations, and problem packs can be removed. This wolf-control policy is loudly protested by environmental wolf-advocacy groups. Oregon is struggling to gain a workable plan to control expanding wolf populations. The wolf population in eastern Oregon is no longer listed as threatened. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has been working on a 5-year wolf conservation and management plan that will be adopted later this year. The plan builds on what the state’s wildlife biologists have learned about wolves over the years. In 2016,

Hereford.org

they documented at least 112 wolves, including 11 packs. The Oregon plan requires at least the confirmed depredations or four probable attacks and one confirmed attack within a 12-month period before allowing lethal control of wolves. Hearings on the draft plan held at Portland and Klamath Falls this spring brought out the opposing views on wolf control — showing the great difference between urban and rural thinking. Authors of Oregon’s draft plan stated that “people with the most positive attitudes about wolves have been those with the least experience with them. People who live in areas with wolves have more negative attitudes toward wolves than the general public, and the negative attitudes are further amplified by wolf predation of livestock. In Oregon, it is expected that an increasing and expanding population of wolves will result in more, not less, conflict in the future.” Washington is experiencing a similar conflict. Lethal control policies are the biggest issue for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), according to Danny Martorello, wolf policy lead for WDFW. In order to remove wolves that are causing problems, non-lethal preventative measures must have been tried first, and the pack must have caused four depredations, with further depredations likely. The WDFW can only remove wolves in the eastern part of Washington because wolves in the western two-thirds of the state are still federally protected and the USFWS does not use lethal removal to manage problem wolves. An outcry from wolf advocates resulted after the WDFW shot seven wolves in the Profanity Peak pack that were killing cattle. As in Oregon the conflict in Washington over how to manage wolves is expected to become more heated.

ground on (Findlay’s) main street were flaming with gas. The story is that in the winter it never had snow or was frozen because so much gas was burning off,” Jeff says. But despite the large amount of manufacturing, Findlay retains its small-town feel, Nicole says. “It’s still a small and close knit community. There are a lot of mom-and-pop stores and the city is very adamant about continuing to support local entrepreneurs, little boutiques and restaurants on top of Marathon and Cooper,” Nicole says. Living in an area where row crops are the main agricultural industry, followed by hogs and dairy, can be challenging at times for a cattle producer. “We have to travel over an hour to get good cattle supplies and we keep over-the-counter (medical) supplies on hand because there are only two, maybe three bovine vets in the area,” Nicole says. The Beaches have relied on Meents and other friends to help them start and improve their

Hereford operation. When they had trouble breeding a cow that wouldn’t take to artificial insemination (AI), Meents put them in contact with a Hereford producer almost 100 miles away who took in the cow for two months. The bull she was finally bred to later won the Ohio State, Michigan and West Virginia State Fairs, and the Beaches ended up with a bull calf that they took to Kentucky. “There are people out there willing to help. We didn’t know anything about fitting or trimming or minerals when we started out,” Nicole says. “People have been very open to saying ‘maybe you should think about doing this’ and not in an aggressive, competitive way.”

Matters in the Midwest Heavy rainfall and mud have been challenging for the Beaches and other area farmers. Last year, the family put in a heavy-use pad that makes it easier for the cattle and family to work with each other. Because the farm was used to raise and train bird dogs, it needed wooded, overgrown areas to provide habitats for quail and other wildlife. The Beaches kept those berms, which help prevent flooding and keep manure out of waterways, in place along a creek. The county is part of the Western Lake Erie Watershed, which falls under a state law restricting the application of manure and fertilizer on frozen, snow-covered or saturated ground. The law is designed to curb nutrients which can contribute to harmful algae blooms in Lake Erie from entering waterways. For Schelby, the move to the farm has had a major impact on her life — she plans to pursue a career in agriculture. In the fall she starts at Ohio State University’s Agricultural Technical Institute, where she will major in animal science beef. “I’ll work on the cattle there and then come home on the weekends and work on my own cattle,” she says. She’s excited that this summer she will be taking two heifers to the Junior National Hereford Expo in Louisville, Ky., her first time showing in that competition. Both Jeff and Nicole love the lifestyle their children are experiencing on the farm, saying they’re learning the value of hard work and about the circle of life. “We’ve had life here but we’ve also had death here and it helps solidify this reality that life is full of life and death. The idea that a cow is born for a particular purpose and was born so you can have life ties in with our beliefs that Jesus came and died so you could have life,” Jeff says. “It brings a biblical teaching into a real touchable, tangible thing in a way that talking about it forever you can’t do. It lets you talk about the realities of life that you don’t talk about as much.” Hereford.org

Nev.; Colyer Herefords, Bruneau, Idaho; Holden Herefords, Valier, Mont.; and Churchill Cattle Co., Manhattan, Mont. “This is the base of our cow herd today,” he says.

White Mountain Herefords

White Mountain Herefords markets a dozen to 20 bulls a year to ranches in the Southwest via private treaty.

The dryland gramma grass and malapai rock winter pastures see, on average, only 11 inches of rain a year. “We don’t need a lot of rain to make good grass if it comes at the right time,” Daric says. Each year they depend on snowpack in the mountains for water and annual monsoons out of the Gulf of Mexico for summer rains. Though Herefords seem to thrive in any circumstance, he says it’s important to make sure cattle fit the environment. “The cattle are moderate sized and adapted to rocks,” Daric says. “The high-elevation summer grazing ground is rough country, as well. These Hereford cows can go from 7,000 ft. elevation dry gramma grass ground to 9,500 ft. elevation lush green grass ground in high country and do not lose a bit. I can sell bulls into southern Arizona desert ranches, and these bulls will stay with a cow herd for 4 to 5 years and adapt to those lower elevations. Hereford is a good all-around breed.” continued on page 104...

Today, the Knights live in Daric’s grandfather’s house, and White Mountain Herefords operates out of the old Hooper Hereford Ranch headquarters. “We run our cattle from the headquarters east and back to the other half of my parent’s land,” Daric says. “My brother, Lance, runs cattle west from headquarters. We work closely with my parents on their cow herd and help my brothers on and off with their cow herds.” Daric and Patty also have off-ranch employment — Patty is an ICU nurse, and Daric runs a hunting business in addition to a few additional jobs. White Mountain Herefords consists of 120 Hereford cows, which are mostly natural-bred to purchased bulls and a few of their own herd sires — with only a small portion of the herd artificially inseminated. “We try to breed them and keep them straight-bred Hereford until the first of June,” Daric says. “All cattle go to high country on Forest Service Term Grazing Permits. At that point we pull Hereford bulls and run Angus bulls to clean up. Anything born after the middle of March is a black baldie calf.” The Knights sell 12 to 20 Hereford bulls a year via private treaty. These bulls tend to remain in the Southwest — an environment they are acclimated to. “We market a large number of our bulls to Native American tribes in the area,” he says. “They are a major bull market for us.” Daric and Patty have also found a strong market for heifers, especially black baldies, in ranches in Arizona and New Mexico. “Our black baldie heifers have had a tremendous amount of interest even into southern California,” he says. “Especially in western Arizona, there’s a lot of ranches after replacement females, black baldie or straight bred.” Steer calves are preconditioned for 45 days and sold at two nearby sale barns. “We usually sell at the top of the market for black baldie steers,” Daric explains. “People are looking for them.”

A tough environment The Knights run their cattle on tough terrain year around. Their winter grazing land and headquarters near Springerville sit at 7,000 ft. elevation. At the end of May, cows are moved to high country at 9,000 to 10,000 ft. “These are highelevation acclimated cattle,” Daric says. “We have no problem with brisket disease, because the cattle are raised here and those types of problems have weeded themselves out.” Hereford.org

Trials of the Southwest

Daric Knight says Hereford is a good all-around breed and does well in the high desert.

The Wallow Fire In 2011 Arizona witnessed its worse wildfire season on record. The Wallow Fire, which began May 29, burned 538,000 acres in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona and into western New Mexico until it was contained July 8. Daric and Patty Knight of White Mountain Herefords, Springerville, Ariz., found themselves in the middle of Arizona’s largest wildfire in state history. “The fire burned completely through our Forest Service Term Grazing Permit,” Daric says. As the fire broke out, Daric, along with other ranchers in the area, sent their cattle to high country. “We were one of the first ranchers to move our cattle to high country,” he explains. “There’s a succession — back in the old days the ones who were the furthest up the mountain went first. We’re at the top so we’ve always been able to go first.” Daric says cattle, along with wildlife, lived through the fire in the bottom of green meadows. “You couldn’t see 100 yards in front of you, but if you dropped into a low meadow, below where the smoke hung 3 ft. off the ground, you could look across the ground and those meadows would be solid full of elk, deer and cattle bedded down with heads on the ground so they could breath.” The Knights gained permission from the Forest Service to leave cattle in certain areas of the high country for three to four weeks to utilize what was left of the lush, green meadows before relocating the herd. White Mountain Herefords marked zero casualties due to the fire, though Daric says breeding season was pushed back 45 days — a gap they are still working to close six years later. “The ground bounced back and there’s twice as much forage due to opening up that canopy,” Daric says. “It burned older, tough grass and the land is doing really well.”

In addition to the challenging landscape, Daric says a limiting factor for Arizona ranchers wanting to grow their business is obtaining new pastures. “In order to expand numbers, we must buy a lot more land or lease more land,” Daric explains. “In our area of eastern Arizona and western New Mexico, that’s tough to do. We’d like to get our herd size to 100-150 registered Hereford cows and another 150 straight-bred cows to be able to produce several loads of calves that can be marketed through a branded beef program like Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®).” Daric says there is very little private property in his area as most of the land is owned by the state. The Arizona State Land Department manages approximately 9.2 million acres of State Trust lands. The Knights lease State Trust land in addition to the Forest Service grazing permits. “It takes so much ground to run a cow,” Daric says, estimating around 100 acres needed per cow. “There are also a lot of older ranching families in the area. They don’t turn over very often so it’s difficult to find more grazing land. We have to keep our eyes open and work the local politics,” he laughs. In addition, because the Knights utilize state and federal ground, Daric says they experience a push from certain groups to remove cattle out of the Southwest. “There’s always a fight to maintain grazing on Forest Service allotments and State Trust land. There are groups that want cattle off the land. Our state cattlemen’s association has been very influential in helping protect our ranching interests.” They are also witnessing urban encroachment. “We’ve got nice weather and interesting wildlife and environment,” he says. “We’re feeling pressures from urban communities.” Though there are many external factors challenging White Mountain Hereford Ranch, one thing has remained constant in the high desert of eastern Arizona: Daric says, “The Hereford cow is most adaptable in any environment we have and the most economical on this ground.”

The White Mountain Herefords cow herd base originated from the Hooper Hereford Ranch. Hereford.org

BIF Convention Highlights The Beef Improvement Federation Annual Convention focuses on profitability through genetic improvement. by Troy Smith

E

very year, the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Annual Convention attracts a large audience from the ranks of commercial cowcalf and seedstock producers, academia and allied industries. More than 350 people attended this year’s convention, hosted by the University of Georgia May 31-June 3, in Athens. The agenda featured two and a half days of educational programming, focusing on ways product value can be enhanced across all segments through genetic improvement.

Genomics today and tomorrow Day-one’s general session speakers talked about the current value and future promise of genomics. University of Georgia geneticist Daniela Lourenco reviewed the history of genomics from early investigation of DNA to the

Keep genotyping and phenotyping if you want more reliable GE-EPDs. — Daniela Lourenco 114

latest method for calculating genomic-enhanced expected progeny difference (GE-EPD) values. Early in the game, Lourenco lamented, marketing hype outpaced the science. Lourenco said the discovery that much genome sequence variation can be attributed to single-nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, led to their use as markers for genes associated with certain genetic traits. Thus markerassisted selection was an early DNA-based tool applied for genetic improvement. But selection based on relatively few gene markers was limited at best. “It did not work really well,” said Lourenco, “because most traits of interest are polygenetic, meaning they are influenced by multiple genes, with each having a small effect.” Advancement came with the identification of more SNP-trait relationships and the introduction in 2009 of the 50,000 SNP genotyping assay. The dairy industry embraced the technology almost immediately, and the beef industry followed but at a slower pace.

“The availability of more genotyped cattle drove the development of new methods to incorporate genomic information into national cattle evaluations,” explained Lourenco. “The first method was called multi-step and, as the name implied, this method required multiple analyses to have the final genomic-enhanced EPDs. Distinct training and validation populations were needed to develop molecular breeding values which were blended with traditional EPDs or included as correlated traits.” Lourenco said an alternative single-step method for combining pedigrees, phenotypes and genotypes offers a better estimation of relationships with greater accuracies. GE-EPDs are delivering increased accuracy of prediction on younger animals, allowing for reduced generation interval. Genomics also aid the prediction of genetic merit for animals with no progeny, as well as selection for traits that are difficult to measure or are of low heritability. Lourenco insisted, however, that there remains a need for collection of phenotypic data. Hereford.org


“Keep genotyping and phenotyping if you want more reliable GE-EPDs,” emphasized Lourenco.

Learning from another Speaking about what the beef industry can learn from another industry’s application of genomics, Tom Lawlor of the Holstein Association USA said dairy cattle breeders shifted from searching the world for the best genetics to using genomics to develop the best genetics in the world. In many instances, the animals in a top Holstein sire’s ancestry were from the same seedstock operation or company. Rather than buying bulls to market semen, many large artificial insemination (AI) companies now have their own breeding programs. “AI company ownership of female genetics is now common,” said Lawlor. “And they don’t call it a breeding program anymore; it’s a genomics program.” Noting how application of genomics has heightened competition among entities marketing dairy genetics, Lawlor advised the beef industry to embrace genomics. “If you don’t, and the other guys do, you’re falling farther and farther behind the game,” he warned.

Spangler said the way genomic information is utilized in genetic evaluation is becoming more sophisticated. He expects wide implementation of the “single-step” approach to the incorporation of genomic information into GE-EPDs, rather than the “multistep” method of blending a genomic-based molecular breeding value with the traditional EPD calculated from pedigree and performance information. According to Spangler, the single-step approach improves the precision with which GE-EPDs are calculated by better quantifying genetic relationships using both genomic and pedigree information. The significant benefit of single-step is higher accuracy of prediction. University of California-Davis geneticist Alison Van Eenennaam said the future of genomics includes genome editing — using “molecular scissors” to cut DNA strands at precise points and to delete or to insert alleles associated with specific traits. She cited, as an example, the insertion of a polled gene from one breed into the DNA of an individual from a horned breed. “It is not a silver bullet, as some have promoted,” warned Van Eenennaam, saying targeted gene

alterations should be the goal. “I see it as a cherry on top; not the whole ice cream sundae.”

Enhancing profitability Of particular interest to commercial cow-calf producers, day-two of the Convention featured discussions of existing tools for enhancing profitability. Included were University of Florida animal scientist Todd Thrift’s comments on the power of heterosis or hybrid vigor. Thrift admitted a lack of understanding is why so many cattlemen ignore crossbreeding as a means of achieving optimum, costefficient production. It has been implied that individual breeds have improved significantly through genetic selection to such an extent that crossbreeding is not needed to improve production. However, Thrift said crossbreeding does offer advantages and, most significant, is what crossbreeding does for reproduction. According to Thrift, the crossbred cow has been shown to be superior for aspects including age at puberty, reproduction and longevity. He called heterosis a highly effective means of increasing total pounds of calf weaned per cow exposed. continued on page 116... July 2017 |

...BIF Convention Highlights continued from page 115

Six key messages from the BIF Convention by Katy Holdener Cattlemen from across the U.S. gathered in Athens, Ga., at the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Annual Convention and Research Symposium. This annual gathering of the leading seedstock and commercial beef producers, academics and allied industry partners sets the stage for genetic improvement in the beef cattle industry. Here are six key takeaways from this year’s BIF Convention.

The crossbred cow has been shown to be superior for aspects including age at puberty, reproduction and longevity.

Develop a genomics program for your operation utilizing the various reproductive and genomic testing technologies. There is a gap between producers utilizing genomic advancements and those who aren’t — the gap will continue to widen over time.

“Typically, as the production environment worsens, the more hybrid vigor can matter,” stated Thrift, citing the popularity of Bos taurus – Bos indicus crossbred cows (such as the Hereford × Brahman tiger-striped female) among Gulf Coast cow-calf operations. “Many consider the F1 Brahmancross cow to be the ‘Cadillac Cow’ for that environment.” Thrift discussed the strengths and weaknesses of terminal, rotational and composite crossbreeding systems, emphasizing that haphazard crossing of breeds is not a crossbreeding system. Longterm success requires a targeted plan. Regardless of the system chosen, Thrift says much of the benefit will result from using a crossbred cow.

5) Whole herd reporting offers value.

Achieving longevity

1) Data is key. Not only is data key in genomics, but it’s also important in performance information. As cattlemen continue to collect more genomic information, they must also continue to collect performance data such as weight traits and measurements. This data is vital for future genomic values so that genome technology can improve as time progresses.

2) Selection indices contain power. This simplistic approach allows genetic gain and profit. Utilizing selection indices that fit your operation allows for a balanced approach to improvement.

3) Evaluate all of the tools in the tool box, beyond just DNA testing. Reproductive technologies, complete performance data reporting, etc. are available for breeders to use to their advantage. What can these technologies do to increase the rate of genetic progress in your herd?

4) Get on the genomics train or get left behind.

The value of whole herd reporting and the American Hereford Association’s (AHA) cow inventory system, Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program, have leveraged the development of key economically relevant traits and will continue to provide additional traits for cattlemen to utilize.

6) Keep collecting data! Just like the fundamentals of whole herd reporting, collecting whole herd genomics is critical to getting the most out of marker selection. Don’t let your operation fall behind with industry trends and technology.

and Other Stockmanship Strategies An animal handling expert shares his tips for effectively moving cattle. by Kindra Gordon

T

he onset of summer means a steady flow of working the cow herd — breeding, branding and giving calf vaccinations, moving through summer grass pastures, and preconditioning and weaning. But are your stockmanship techniques ensuring a “good flow” for low-stress cattle movement? Curt Pate, a nationally renowned horse trainer and stockman, suggests stockmanship can be a valuable tool. He notes, “It’s not only about working animals; it’s about understanding animals. You need to be able to look at animals and know if they are content — if they have what they need.” What’s the most common mistake livestock handlers make?

124

| July 2017

Pate says it is people walking behind the animal (or the herd) and trying to push it forward. He blames society for this approach, saying, “Society makes people get in line. It’s programmed into our brains to get in the back of the line and then move forward. So, when we work livestock, we do the exact same thing.” But, once you recognize that cattle’s range of vision is different from a human’s, you will quickly realize that walking behind the

animal is the wrong approach, Pate says.

Vision important He explains that because an animal’s eyes are on the side of its head, it can see a wide area — almost 360 degrees when its head is down for grazing. But, its vision is not very precise. As a result, when a person approaches, the animal will turn its head to look. Pate says, “As you come up to the center of the animal’s eye, you are more in focus to them. But when the animal turns its head, it also must change its direction.” Thus, Pate’s rule for handling cattle is to place yourself where the animal can always see you. He says, “I don’t try to work the Hereford.org


whole animal; I try to work the animal’s nose.” He explains that where the animal’s nose points, the rest of the body usually follows. “If you can always see that nose, the animal can see you,” Pate says. Pate likes to work at a 45 degree angle from the front of the animal. He calls this the focus point (another industry term is balance point), saying, “That’s when they start listening to you.” For each animal and depending on the environment, the focus point can be different. He gives the example of sorting cattle and explains, once the animal sees you with both eyes, as you step forward, the animal will begin to move. If you step back, it will stop — or, if you move out of its focus point and it must turn its head to see you better, it will turn away. Pate adds, “If the animal starts to move the wrong way, you must stop and step back and start over. Then move forward where she can see you better.” As the animal begins to move forward in the desired direction, walk with it, Pate says — but not from behind. Instead, walk along its side in a zigzag pattern as a border collie would. If the animal is not moving in the right direction, he reiterates, “Always be willing to stop and start again.”

Pressure points Regarding cattle movement, one of Pate’s fundamental techniques is the use of pressure. He says, “Pressure is what stimulates animals to move,” and uses the analogy of a storm prompting animals to move forward to seek shelter. He explains, “It’s all about putting yourself in the right place at the right time with the animals to give the right amount of pressure, and then releasing animals to do what you’ve asked them to do.” He notes that in some situations, such as moving cattle into a chute or semi-trailer, more pressure may be needed. He emphasizes that you Hereford.org

do not want to panic the animals, but you may need to increase the pressure being applied to keep them moving. He shares, “When cattle are too gentle, it makes them more difficult to move.” As well, he says, “I’m not against hot shots. I think they are one of the most humane tools we have if they are used properly.” But he also cautions against too much pressure and putting cattle into a panic mode. He explains that when you are working with an animal, you are working with its brain. He describes the animal’s brain as having two sides: a thinking side and a surviving — or reaction — side. “Animals use the thinking side in instances like grazing. They are deciding what to do and what to eat,” says Pate. Conversely, he describes the survival mode as an animal in panic — something really scares it. Signs include the head of the animal rising up, its eyes widening, its tail raising and it is looking to get away. “In survival mode, they are not thinking, they are reacting. If animals are in survival mode too long and stressed so much, their immune system can shut down,” Pate says. Recognizing this, Pate says the first lesson a good stockman learns is to never stress an animal to the point of shifting it into survival mode. “If an animal does reach that point, you’ve got to back the pressure off,” Pate says. Additionally, Pate points out that animals have incredible memories. He says, “We’ve got to remember, any negative things we do to animals, they never want to get in that situation again.” Even sound can cause a negative experience that can stress animals. “Bull whips and raddle paddles get animals to not trust us,” Pate says. Pate acknowledges that stockmanship skills are honed through trial and error. And to that end he suggests to other stockmen, “When you get done working cattle, take time to analyze what you did well

and what you did wrong. Then, next time, don’t make that mistake again.” He adds, “The more you think and work at it and analyze your efforts after you get done working with a group of livestock, the better you’ll become. And, it’ll improve your quality of life and improve our quality of beef.” Editor’s Note: Pate is a regular speaker at industry events and shared his stockmanship tips this winter at the Range Beef Cow Symposium in Ft. Collins, Colo., and the Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show in San Diego, Calif.

Mood matters As a final tip, Curt Pate, nationally renowned horse trainer and stockman, emphasizes that the mood of the people working the cattle can influence the cattle’s movement and reactions. He says, “I believe cattle can read people better than we can read them.” He tells the story of a producer who was mad while sorting cattle, and the cattle would not go by him. Pate says, “Fear, anger, whatever it is that is affecting your mood, cattle pick up on that. So it is real important to keep your attitude right while working with livestock.” The bottom line is to take time and to go slowly. “Stockmanship to me is like a highway roundabout,” Pate says. He explains that those circular intersections make people think as they navigate through the curves and outlets. Likewise, Pate says, “Stockmanship while working with livestock is kind of a roundabout. You’ve got to think. It’s tough. It’s a skill.”

Webinars Provide Learning Opportunities for Members The American Hereford Association addresses breeders’ questions in MyHerd.org webinar series. by Haley Stark

T

o address commonly asked questions about MyHerd.org, the American Hereford Association (AHA) hosted a webinar series covering a basic overview of MyHerd, how to register and transfer animals and how to make DNA requests. More than 140 Hereford breeders and MyHerd users joined the webinars this spring.

MyHerd is a real-time, online service that replaces traditional mail services and offers breeders everything from registering and transferring animals, updating any of their performance data to paying their AHA and Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) account balances. It was launched during the 2014 fiscal year, specifically focuses on the Hereford breed, and

What makes MyHerd so unique is that anything typically completed within the AHA office can now be done online in real-time through MyHerd, making it more efficient for the breeder and their operation than ever before. — SyAnn Foster 130

aims to make herd and business management more convenient for the breeder. “What makes MyHerd so unique is that anything typically completed within the AHA office can now be done online in real-time through MyHerd, making it more efficient for the breeder and their operation than ever before,” says SyAnn Foster, AHA education and information service coordinator. As with any other online system, questions and troubleshooting often arise. The webinars were created to serve as a helpful tool for answering questions and to explain the logic behind MyHerd’s design. Hereford.org


Getting started with MyHerd The first of the four informational webinars discussed the key features of MyHerd, starting with how to login to the program. Before diving into the content of MyHerd, Foster reviewed web browser compatibility suggestions. Whether an individual is utilizing a PC or Mac computer, Google Chrome works the best with MyHerd and is highly recommended. For those using Internet Explorer on a PC, the web browser setting must allow Myherd. org compatibility. Mac’s default browser, Safari, is not compatible with MyHerd. Mozilla Firefox is also available for download and serves as an alternative, compatible program. Once logged on to MyHerd, users will see the home screen varies by design depending on if they have pedigree or performance breeder status. Pedigree breeders are those who wish to register and to transfer Hereford cattle but are not interested in maintaining and reporting performance data; therefore, the production of expected progeny differences (EPDs) is waived on their herd. Performance breeders have more guidelines and requirements. They are required to maintain an accurate female inventory and to report calving ease and weaning weight on the progeny of each female in their inventory. EPDs will be available on their herd. Pedigree breeders are welcomed with MyHerd navigation tabs, their current balance, a last login date and a list of MyHerd features. Performance breeders are welcomed with these same features along with a Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) to-do list that helps breeders stay organized and on track with their Whole Herd TPR requirements. The “Navigation” tabs on MyHerd pave the way for all the tasks that can be completed Hereford.org

Figure 1: The upper boxes outline any required information for the breeder. The upper left-hand box provides critical overdue required information. This shows breeders whether there are any unsatisfied requirements making them non-compliant. The upper right-hand box shows upcoming required calf crop deadline tasks. The bottom left-hand box features incomplete recorded trait data for the genetic evaluation, and the bottom right-hand box shows upcoming Gold TPR requirements yet to be accomplished.

online. They consist of Home, Herd Details (contains most of the MyHerd features), Reports, Jobs, DNA, Membership Details and Transactions. During the webinar, Foster discussed the components under each of these tabs. MyHerd has numerous benefits including, but not limited to, registering calves in real-time, transferring animals to customers, electronic registration certificate storage, performance data entry and calf crop analysis. Ultimately, MyHerd provides paperless bookkeeping for the Hereford breeder. With MyHerd, everything is electronic. Breeders will no longer receive packing slips or monthly statements sent by mail; rather all this information is emailed to them and later can be found online under the “Transactions” or “Reports” tab. Here, the breeder can view previous AHA and HPI transactions as well as pending transactions. Foster compares “Pending Transactions” to online shopping. “Think of it like a shopping cart,” she explains. “The ‘work’ you do on MyHerd goes into the pending transaction screen and it is not considered complete until the associated fees are paid.” The red “Pending Transaction” alert at the

top right-hand side of the page notifies the breeder of this status. Foster also notes it’s imperative to utilize the MyHerd back button instead of the browser back button to avoid losing data or being prematurely logged out. For performance breeders, understanding the Home screen is important. It consists of four boxes that help breeders stay organized and on track to meet the Whole Herd TPR deadlines. See Figure 1. An additional resource for performance breeders is the Whole Herd TPR Calf Crop Tracker table, which can be found by clicking the Whole Herd TPR button in the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen. This table, which continued on page 132...

Figure 2: • The Herd ID is unique to that animal, so the ID cannot be used more than once in the same herd (an ID is usually the same as the tattoo).

allows the member access to all sections of the TPR program, outlines the calving year and seasons by row and the different traits by columns.

How to register animals The Calf Registration screen is the page where the breeder can immediately record calf details. Everything that would normally be filled out on paper can now be completed electronically through MyHerd on this page. Foster walked through the entire calf registration process, explained how to transfer ownership immediately on entry and illustrated the information with three different registration scenario examples. Out of all the data input boxes, Foster highlights a few important details. See Figure 2. She clarifies the difference when recording natural, AI (artificial insemination) and ET (embryo transfer) bred calves. The “Service” field must have either “Natural” or “AI” selected (if the calf is an ET

calf, AI must be selected) and either a “No” or “Yes” if it is an ET calf. It is also important to note that the “Breeder” and “Original Owner” input boxes will not populate automatically. To generate this information, the user should click the “Calculate Breeder and Original Owner” button. The AHA customer service department often receives questions about MyHerd registration “Error” and “Warning” messages. Foster says, “An ‘Error’ message means something is wrong and the member must either fix and update the calf details or put the animal on ‘Hold’ as a pending animal to save the calf details for updating later. Fix the incorrect information, and click ‘update’ to result in a successful registration once the information is acceptable. If you are waiting for something else, you can click ‘Hold’ to save the calf details. For example, if an artificial insemination (AI) certificate is needed, the member must request an AI certificate to successfully

Figure 3: The Animal Transfer screen is powered by the top two boxes. In the selected animals box, pick the animal needing a transfer. In the selected members box, pick the buyer (this does not have to be an AHA member). Next, if the selected animal is a female, indicate if it is an open or a bred heifer/cow.

record this animal.” “Warning” messages simply prompt the member to doublecheck the recorded animal details. These messages can be overridden by clicking the “Override” button. Foster points out that these registration “Error” and “Warning” messages are common. For reference, a common errors chart with each error’s corresponding solutions was featured on Page 16 in the May/June 2017 issue of the Hereford World.

How to transfer animals The animal transferring process on MyHerd is typically the one from which most customer service questions stem from. An important feature in the transfer process is the “Personal List.” This is a MyHerd feature providing a list of breeders detailed information that the member has done business with in the past two years. The list is also available for download into an Excel spreadsheet, which members can then print for personal reference. Foster breaks down the transfer screen and important details associated with it. See Figure 3. Foster notes if the cow being transferred is bred, it’s important to add the service details so at the time of registering her calf, the buyer won’t have to “hold” that calf to get permission from the service sire since it’s indicated here instead. Breeders must insert individual service sire details for bred heifers and cannot transfer multiple bred heifers at once. However, they may transfer multiple open females or multiple males to the same buyer. Hereford.org


Most of the confusion during the transfer process arises from the four buyer options featured on the bottom half of the Animal Transfer screen. Foster breaks down these four options into questions for the breeder to ask himself/herself:

• Have you done business with

this buyer in the past three years? If so, look for the buyer in your Personal List.

• Do you have the buyer’s AHA

member number? If so, click the “Member Search” tab to find the buyer by his/her member number or do a quick search with his/her name, state, city and zip code.

• Is the buyer a member of the

Association? You can create a new non-member identity since a buyer doesn’t have to be a member of the Association to own Hereford cattle. (It is advised, if a similar existing membership populates in the bottom table, to select that membership so you don’t create a duplicate account.

• Are you transferring ownership to linked accounts? If so, select the Linked Accounts tab.

Once animal transfers have been completed, it’s crucial to review activity. “Visiting your pending transactions is a great way to double check transfers before they’re paid for and released,” Foster says. “If a transfer is sent out to the wrong buyer, the AHA has to wait until they get the registration paper back from the wrong buyer before they can edit the transfer into the right buyer’s name. You can prevent this process by double checking your work in the ‘Pending Transaction’ screen. At that time, if any information is wrong then you can contact the AHA customer service department to fix any errors before payment and release of your animal transfers.”

DNA requests The DNA features on MyHerd, released this past fall, are the newest part of the program. Hereford.org

Table 1: DNA tests DNA test options: Basic Panel Basic Panel + GE-EPDs Basic Panel + H/P Test Basic Panel + GE-EPDs + H/P Test

Foster says there are two main tasks under the DNA tab: how to make a new DNA request on any active- and inactive-owned animals and how to view and understand the DNA test results. Focusing on making a DNA request, it’s key to understand that there are several steps to the process and this feature serves as a building block for users. First, users should select the animal to be DNA tested. Next, they should select what the primary reason is for getting this animal DNA tested. Reasons include: profile only, parent verification, sire verification, dam verification, AI/ET permit or multi-sire. Following this step, select the type of DNA test needed depending on preference and the purpose of getting the animal DNA tested. A list of DNA tests can be found in Table 1. After completion of these steps, a final screen will come up outlining the specific DNA test request. This verifies all the information is correct and that the breeder is getting exactly what he/she needs for that particular animal. It is important to note if a parent verification is needed and a sire or dam does not already have a DNA sample on file, then the breeder will also have to provide a DNA sample for that sire or dam. Foster also stresses the importance of not only doublechecking the DNA request information but also planning ahead. All DNA requests have a three- to four-week turnaround once the sample is received at the lab. Every DNA test request goes through three processing stages: sent; acknowledged; and tested. “If a test is still processing, you won’t be able to make a new request until the processing test has been completed,” Foster says. “The reason for this is to prevent

Sample collection methods: TSU – can do this at birth Blood cards – can do this anytime Hair – must wait at least four months

duplicate test requests for the same animal. Once the status is ‘Tested,’ you can view results by selecting that specific animal and then MyHerd gives the detailed results.” Foster says MyHerd is convenient because the status of the test can be checked at any time. All the information is available on MyHerd.

Upcoming learning opportunities Throughout all the hosted webinars, Foster emphasized the additional informational resources available to AHA members that include help pages on MyHerd and several tutorials on different MyHerd topics featured on the AHA website, Hereford.org, under the Member service tab. “The AHA is adamant about providing members supplemental ways to learn and become more familiar with AHA service,” Foster says. To further improve member knowledge and to create more learning opportunities, a survey was released in June. This survey was created to provide feedback on MyHerd and the educational webinars, as well as what other areas/topics members would like to learn about and become more familiar with. Foster says the AHA plans to host another MyHerd webinar series in late fall and winter. The material covered will be based on the corresponding survey results and frequently asked questions received in customer service. Foster and the AHA customer service team are excited to work on more webinar opportunities and to help AHA members in any areas where they need assistance. She encourages individuals to contact customer service with any questions they may have.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

If the Crown Fits, Fix It My husband, Craig, likes to call me the “Dental Disaster,” and really, I can’t argue. In Craig’s lifetime, he’s had one cavity, and that was just last year. In my lifetime, well, I’m not sure there’s a tooth in my mouth that doesn’t have a filling, crown or other expensive procedure involved. Knowing this, I should have also known I should never, ever skip a regular dental exam. But life happened — kids with busy schedules and appointments of their own and family members who needed my help with various projects and life events, big and small. Before I knew it, I had gone from never missing a checkup to having gone two years between visits. Yes, I’m hanging my head in shame as I type this. To make matters worse, I lost a crown about six months ago. Oh, sure it hurt once in a while, and I kept saying, “I need to get that fixed,” but I never did. Then on a Saturday night, the pain began — like worse-than-labor pain. I made a trip to the ER, then finally made that much-needed appointment with my dentist. We set the next appointment to fix the terrible mess for two weeks from that date. But my mouth had other plans, and I awoke one week later in Kansas City, Mo., ready to photograph a gorgeous wedding with a swollen chipmunk face.

I made it through the wedding, then my incredible friend and assistant for the day drove me to the emergency room in Kansas City for more meds and new antibiotics. My dentist got me in immediately upon my return home. By the time I got the whole problem fixed during a two-hour appointment, I was exhausted, I was swollen, Craig and I had less money in the bank account, and, I’ll admit, I was grumpy.

A learned lesson What did I learn from this less-thanstellar experience? (Other than tooth pain is some of the worst pain, and dental work is darn expensive?) We moms and dads must make time to take care of ourselves. It’s so easy to let the needs of others take priority in our lives and to focus on the to-do lists and making sure everyone else is cared for. In doing so, we can lose sight of our own self-care, too. Absolutely, there’s a time and place for placing the priority on our children and spouse to get out to the barn to get those show heifers’ hair worked, to help our children work through their public speaking presentations, to make sure the jeans are starched and the show belt is located for the show season, and to make sure our loved ones make their much-needed medical appointments, ensuring they are well-cared for.

But in the midst of it all, we can’t forget to take care of ourselves, too. In an ideal world, we would make time for that coffee with a friend who “gets us.” We would find an hour for the much-needed pedicure in preparation for the summer sandals we would love to wear. We could find 20 minutes to sit with a good book and send the kids out the door for our own sanity. At the very least, though, we absolutely must make sure we are trying to eat well (most days, because let’s be real, every day is just too much to ask). And if we have a strange pain or a crown that falls out of our ever-loving head, we must make the appropriate appointments to get that checked out and fixed. It’s not just good for us. It’s good for the family that needs us, too. Because let’s face it — when mom is laid up in the recliner nursing a swollen mess of a face, she’s not much help on the many projects to be done. Had I taken the time to fix my problem when it happened, I’m certain I would not have gotten into that situation. So, let my craziness be your lesson. For goodness sake, take care of yourself and don’t mess around with a missing crown. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of the membership. The records department and member service team processes registrations, transfers and performance records. Visiting the Hereford website, Hereford.org, breeders have access to expected progeny differences (EPDs), registration forms,

sire summaries and other Hereford information. The AHA is the second largest beef registry in the U.S., registering 79,082 cattle in fiscal year 2016, with 4,038 active adult members and 3,057 junior members.

MyHerd.org Empowers Members Providing members with programs and tools to do business effectively and efficiently is a priority for the AHA. During fiscal year 2014, AHA rolled out MyHerd.org — a real-time online registry system that provides AHA members 24/7 access to the majority of record services. MyHerd.org allows Hereford members to take care of Hereford business in real time, anytime day or night.

MyHerd features include: Real-time calf registration and animal transfer Electronic registration certificate storage (optional) Customized Whole Herd TPR to-do lists Whole Herd TPR data entry (Herd Inventory, BW, WW, YW, etc.) View performance reports, packing slips and monthly statements Make DNA Requests and View DNA Status and Results

MyHerd.org is a free service. The only requirements are to have an active member account and a valid email address. Signing up for MyHerd doesn’t mean members can’t use a herd management system however there are features in MyHerd that herd management software can’t provide, like electronic animal transfer, AI certificate release and online bill payment. Contact the MyHerd team at MyHerd@hereford.org to learn more about how to use MyHerd with your herd management system.

MyHerd help resources

The MyHerd team has created resources to ensure you are using MyHerd to its full capabilities. Visit Hereford.org to view the step-by-step MyHerd tutorials that walk you through every feature of MyHerd. You can also utilize the MyHerd help pages by clicking in the red box with the question mark in the upper right-hand corner of MyHerd. Be on the lookout for upcoming webinars this fall and spring. Webinars are live demonstrations hosted by a MyHerd team member and a great opportunity for you to ask questions. As always, the customer service department is here for you, so give us a call anytime.

Taking the Next Step as a New Member Dear new member, Welcome! We look forward to having you as a member of the American Hereford Association (AHA). We hope this handbook answers some of your questions as you begin your membership. Each month new members receive “New Member Notes” by email during their first year of membership. It includes tips and resources to help members become more involved in the AHA plus additional

information regarding AHA programs and activities. If you didn’t provide an email address with your membership application, send an email to records@hereford.org and request your email address to be added to your account. We are always here to serve you. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Sincerely, AHA Customer Service

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.

1

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. Email 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.

$

The cost of registration is determined by the age of the calf at the time of registration (see MEMBER REGISTRATON RATES table on Page 2). In addition to the registration cost/head, lifetime, adult and junior memberships require an

Members using MyHerd.org may pay registration fees on their MyHerd.org account with a credit card or electronic check.

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 “Rules & 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 “Rules & Forms” library.

4 / 2017 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 recordkeeping 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. These within-herd and contemporarygroup 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.

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). • Note: Yearling information is not mandatory.


Step 4:

• When the breeder returns Form 3 to AHA, a yearling report (Form 4) and calf crop EPD summary (Form 5) is provided. • 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.

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.

Online registry — MyHerd.org

The AHA online registration system is called MyHerd.org and offers many advantages. The system works in real time, which means registrations, transfers 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 AHA information. MyHerd will help keep performance breeders organized with custom TPR to-do lists, which tell you exactly what needs to be turned in. The newest MyHerd feature is the ability to make DNA requests and to view DNA status and results online. You no longer have to check in with the customer service department in order to fulfill your DNA needs. Email 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 can 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 to release registration certificates.

Sharpen up on traits

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. For additional trait information, visit the Genetics section of Hereford.org.

More frequent genetic evaluations

The AHA has made great progress with the new genetic evaluation program utilizing Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT). The AHA has conducted simultaneous runs to help test the new system against the traditional genetic evaluation. Essentially, BOLT will be able to conduct a single-step approach to genomic evaluation. Directly including the informative markers for specific traits will more effectively utilize the genomic component. Ultimately, the marker information will be directly used with pedigree and phenotype data to generate expected progeny differences (EPDs). Along with this, utilizing BOLT will significantly reduce the time needed for an analysis and will allow for runs to be conducted twice a month or potentially once a week, compared to today’s genetic evaluation that is run only 10 times per year. Once the AHA has fully implemented BOLT, the genetic evaluation schedule will be updated to include even more runs. 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. One change to note is that the interim model will no longer exist. Interim phenotypes don’t impact the sire or dam until they are run through the evaluation, which can cause confusion from one run to the next. Moving away from this, will require significant planning by members prior to marketing, especially when considering those that utilize ultrasound and GE-EPDs. The rules for Whole Herd TPR and compliance checks for different recognition programs will still be on the same time schedule. Once all research is completed, key staff will conduct educational webinars on the main differences between the current and new genetic evaluations. Look for updates in the Hereford World, and check out the Hereford Headlines blog at Hereford.org for updates on BOLT advancements.

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. In 2016 the foundation marked a monumental year closing out the fiscal year with total liabilities and net assets reaching $3,813,654. The Growing a Lasting Legacy Campaign hit it’s first $1 million mark, thus ensuring the sustainability of future Junior National Hereford Expos and Faces of Leadership Conferences for generations to come.

The focus

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

Scholarships Make a Difference

With the addition of the Vanier Family Scholarship Fund and Perks Ranch Scholarship in 2016, HYFA was proud to award $160,000 in support to deserving National Junior Hereford Association members. 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. 1.

Feed the Future campaign debuts

HYFA and BioZyme® Inc., have joined forces to offer the Feed the Future program which has the potential to generate $100,000 for Hereford youth and positively influence future generations. All Hereford breeders are invited to join the Feed the Future campaign. The process to participate is as easy as 1, 2, 3: 1) Purchase an eligible VitaFerm® product from a local dealer.

2) Take a picture or scan the invoice or receipt to show proof of purchase. Send the picture to BioZyme by texting it to 816-383 -3109, or email it to hereford@biozymeinc.com

3) BioZyme will donate $1 per bag or tub with proof of purchase to HYFA.

Come grow with HYFA

Breeder, industry and corporate support is vital to HYFA’s success. Since HYFA is a 501(c)(3) corporation all contributions are tax deductible. HYFA supports the programs and activities that not only benefit the Hereford breed today but also helps establish the future of the Hereford breed for tomorrow’s youth. The most common methods of giving include cash donations, stocks, sponsorships and memorials.

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 2016, 3,057 active members took advantage of all the opportunities available to Hereford youth through the association. This number is up more than 800 members since 2012. 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 online form found on the website, JrHereford.org. 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 2018 JNHE will be in Grand Island, Neb., July 1-7 and will be themed “The Hereford Express.”


NJHA Important Dates and Deadlines 2017 Conference

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 Faces of Leadership Conference 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, the event has traveled to Idaho, Michigan State University, Arkansas, South Dakota State University, Estes Park, Colo., and the Texas Panhandle. 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 welcome leadership conference participants to our home in Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 1-4. A visit to Kansas State University, a tour of BioZyme® Inc., and a Royals baseball game are just a few of the highlights in 2017. 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 2017, junior members must meet the 14 year old age requirement to register for Faces of Leadership.

For more information, visit JrHereford.org. Fall scholarship deadline is Sept. 1. 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.

2017 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, it 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 to the oldest animal 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, 2016, 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 Show Classifications The decision to have both a Hereford and polled Hereford show or to have a combined show will be left up to the discretion of the state breed associations and show management.

Rules and classifications

Exhibitors in Hereford classes are subject to the Association’s special rule on class qualification, and any animal without a legible tattoo will not be eligible for show. For state and regional shows, all Hereford animals must be officially recorded at show time to be eligible to show. For national shows all Hereford animals must be officially recorded (registered) 30 days prior to the show date to be eligible to show. Entries with registrations “Pending” or “Applied for” will be ineligible to show.

Group classes

Get-of-sire — Four animals shown in above single-entry classes with both sexes represented and all progeny of one sire. It is permissible to use either the cow or calf from a cowcalf pair for the get-of-sire. Get-of-sire may be comprised of animals from one or more owners and of both horned and polled animals. Best six head — All animals must have been shown in their respective single-entry classes, and they must be owned by the exhibitor or by a member of his/her immediate family. A cow-calf will be considered as two head in the best six head class. Best six head may be comprised of both horned and polled animals.

Premier exhibitor, Premier breeder

Awarded with the following point system: first place = 5 points, second place = 4 points, third place = 3 points, fourth place = 2 points and fifth place = 1 point. No points will be given for champions. Points will be awarded for the best six head for premier exhibitor. The same scoring system as above will be used for awarding points for the group classes. It is suggested that banners be given to the premier exhibitor and the premier breeder. 2017 Hereford Handbook / 15


AHA Show Classifications continued

National junior show ownership rule

Cow-calf pairs, heifers and steers may be jointly owned by siblings provided all are individual members of the National Junior Hereford Association and are between the ages of 7 and 22 as of January 1 of the current year. No animal is eligible to compete if recorded in joint ownership (other than the sibling rule) or ownership of farm or family name. Bred-and-owned bulls, however, may be owned by the exhibitor, a ranch/family name as long as the junior exhibitor is also the breeder.

Points for national and regional show bull and show female of the year will be based on the Regional Show Point System. Animals do not have to show in a regional show in order to be eligible for show bull or female of the year in the respective four quadrants. An animal may only win show bull or female of the year for one quadrant per year. Ownership percentage followed by ownership succession (breeder, first owner, second owner, etc.) will determine from which quadrant the animal will be recognized.

AHA point shows and awards

Point show requirements as of May, 1 2017: • 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.

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 2017 Hereford Handbook / 25

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 / 2017 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. 2017 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 / 2017 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 2017 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 / 2017 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. 2017 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 / 2017 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
